Women & Water in Global Literature



This is a call for expressions of interest for contributing chapters to an edited volume, provisionally entitled Women and Water: Exploring Global Portrayals of the Feminine. The project has been inspired by the proposing co-editors’ observations of the frequency of these tropes of liquidity in their own individual work on women’s writing from Hispanic and Francophone cultures, and by the fact that there is no existing volume that explores their place in world literature by and/or about women.
