CALL FOR PAPERS
British Women Satirists in the Long Eighteenth Century

For decades, literary scholars have shared the assumption that satire in the eighteenth century was largely a "masculine-gendered" literary genre and practice. Even recent criticism regarding the scope and progress of eighteenth-century satire has largely excluded women’s crucial contributions to its practices of public censure and commentary. This timely essay collection, which we are designing for a leading academic press, will challenge current assumptions about eighteenth-century women writers and the gendered practice of satire during the long eighteenth century.

We invite abstracts of up to 750 words for essays that uncover, examine, or reconceptualize the varied means by which British women writers in the long eighteenth century self-consciously and intentionally employed satire to critique, reform, and interrogate social, cultural, religious, or political practices and assumptions. We also invite essays that theorize works of female-authored satire and/or explore iconoclastic or everyday female satiric occasions through a variety of methodologies (historicist, feminist, material, archival, rhetorical, editorial, ecological, etc.). Chapters will address how eighteenth-century British women satirists appropriate, challenge, and disrupt traditionally masculine genres, modes, and styles of dramatic, verse, prose fiction, and ephemeral satire.
