Fordham Professor Eve Keller and University of Maryland Professor Kimberly Anne Coles have co-edited The Routledge Companion to Women, Sex, and Gender in the Early British Colonial World.
All of the essays in this volume capture the body in a particular attitude: in distress, vulnerability, pain, pleasure, labor, health, reproduction, or preparation for death. They attend to how the body’s transformations affect the social and political arrangements that surround it. And they show how apprehension of the body – in social and political terms – gives it shape.
Professor Keller is the author of Generating Bodies and Gendered Selves: The Rhetoric of Reproduction in Early-Modern England (University of Washington Press, 2007) and co-author of Two Rings (PublicAffairs, 2012), which has been published in seven languages. Past president of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts, she is currently President of the Fordham University Faculty Senate and Director of the Honors Program at Fordham College at Rose Hill.
