This volume addresses fundamental issues currently shaping scholarly
discourse in the field of early modern women's studies: understanding
women's voices, texts, and images; exploring the extent to which
women were marginalized by their sex and how other affiliations,
such as occupation, class, or religion, affected their marginalization;
and finally, developing classroom strategies for expanding traditional
conceptions of canon, sources, disciplines, genres, and periodization.
