CFP for Reproductive Justice and Literature Handbook
We seek contributing authors for a handbook on Reproductive Justice and Literature to be edited
by Laura Lazzari and Beth Widmaier Capo and published by Palgrave Macmillan.
This handbook will include essays of 8,000-10,000 words each that analyze reproductive justice
issues as they play out across and through literature. Essays may consider any period, genre, or
cultural context in literature, but must situate the works in the specific reproductive justice
framework (i.e. if discussing surrogacy within contemporary American novels, the relevant legal
and social framework should be clearly explained).
This text is meant to be a resource to scholars, teachers, and students in a wide range of fields,
including literature and social justice, literature and reproduction, cultural studies, women’s and
gender studies, literature and law, reproductive rights and gender justice, literature and gender,
literature and human rights, and motherhood studies.
Please send a 500 word abstract, 3-5 keywords, and a short biography by March 15, 2020 to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org. We are happy to answer any questions.
