AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Contemporary Women's Writing critically assesses writing by women authors who have published approximately from 1970 to the present. The journal aims to reflect retrospectively on developments throughout the period, to survey the variety of contemporary work, and to anticipate the new and provocative in women's writing.

It welcomes theoretical, cultural, historical, geographical, formalist, and political approaches to contemporary women's writing. It is, equally, interested in the production and reception of contemporary women's writing, in terms of the practices of individual authors, the creation of cultural and literary fields, and the construction of readerships. Contemporary Women's Writing is open to work on literatures in English and other languages. -- From the journal's webpage.
