"Women Writers in History"

As a result of the COST Action "Women Writers in History" a book series has been created at Rodopi Editions Amsterdam. The series is also entitled "Women Writers in History"; volumes will start being published in 2014.

Women Writers in History

This series focuses on women authors as a category and in particular on the role they were allowed to play in their respective countries, and beyond national borders in the whole of Europe. Thanks to important efforts in text digitizing, for instance of the early periodical press and of private correspondences, many reception data concerning works by female authors are becoming available. These data allow understanding the place female authors should be given in European literary history. The series Women Writers in History – created and coordinated by members of the NEWW Network – provides a platform for the outcome of this kind of research, for which the online database entitled WomenWriters has been created, which is now being further developed.

The series will publish outcomes of collaborative NEWW research, and the Editorial Board invites researchers who would, up to now, not be members of this group to submit proposals for volumes and monographs to be included in the series. Research outcomes to be published here would typically not concern individual authors, but would realize large-scale research taking as a starting point, preferably, empirical data concerning the reception side of literary communication. Research would focus on the communication which had been taking place between these female authors and their (contemporary) readers at home and abroad, and provide insight in the position taken by these women.
