Women’s Political Thought in Europe 1700-1800

First call for Papers: Women’s Political Thought in Europe 1700-1800

August 25th-29th 2010, Prato, Italy.

Conference organisers: Associate Professor Karen Green, Dr Lisa
Curtis-Wendlandt and Dr Paul Gibbard

Offers of papers are invited for a conference on the contribution of
women to the history of political thought in Europe during the
Enlightenment period. Papers may discuss the political ideas of
individual women such as Mary Wollstonecraft, Catherine Macaulay,
Mary Hays, Sarah Churchill, Mary Delariviere Manley, Marie Jodin,
Emilie du Châtelet, Madame Dupin, Olympe de Gouges, Felicité
Keralio-Robert, Madame Roland, Germaine de Staël, Dorothea
Erxleben Leporin, Amalie Holst, Johanna Charlotte Unzer, Luise
Gottsched, Mariana von Ziegler, Elise Reimarus, Elisabetta Caminer
Turra, and others.
Papers placing the work of such women in the broader context of
political writing by men are encouraged. ‘Political thought’ is
broadly interpreted to include sexual politics as well as political
theory, and discussions of the political ideas of women as expressed
in genres other than the political treatise are welcome.
