[TN] WOMEN'S HISTORY IN THE MOUNTAIN SOUTH

CFP: Women's History in the Mountain South

From: Connie Rice <corice@westco.net>

CALL FOR PAPERS:

WOMEN'S HISTORY IN THE MOUNTAIN SOUTH

We are seeking abstracts or essays that document the history of women in
the Mountain South for a book tentatively titled Daughters of Appalachia: A
Reader on Women's History in the Mountain South. Essays may reflect any
time period from the frontier era to present day and cover a wide
variety of topics that reveal women's participation and contribution to the history
of the region. Topics should include, but are not limited to, race,
ethnicity, class, religion, education, politics, healthcare, work (farm and
industry), reform, etc.

Essays of particular interest are those that examine the social,
political, or economic interaction between women of diverse social, racial, and
ethnic groups; comparative studies of women within the region on specific
topics; women's roles in the blending or maintenance of Appalachian and minority
cultures (such as Latino or Muslim) in the region; essays that reveal
how women challenged or contradicted traditional perceptions of Appalachian
women; and essays that examine the social, economic, or political ties
of Appalachian women to the nation or world.

A university press has expressed interest in the project and will accept
a proposal for review based on the selected abstracts. For consideration,
abstracts and a short vita must be received by July 15, 2008. Questions
and submissions may be sent to:
