Innovation and Activism in American Women's Writing
Innovation and Activism in American Women’s Writing is a book series that focuses on writing by women who have sought to critique and transform their communities, countries, cultures, identities, or aesthetics. We invite monographs and edited collections of essays from established and emerging scholars that examine how women’s writing questions, resists, subverts, or revises traditional gender roles, ways of knowing, ways of meaning/interpreting, and/or expectations of genre. This series features scholarship that expands theories, methodologies, and practices of established traditions or contributes to emerging innovative practices through the exploration of the inevitable connections between aesthetic forms and political, social, cultural, and/or historical contexts. Projects that pay attention to language and form, production and reception, practices of individual authors and collectives, and hybrid aesthetics are particularly welcome.
