Women, Exploration and Discovery: Call for Papers for Special Issue of ‘Terra Incognitae’
Proposals are being sought for a panel dedicated to women explorers, travelers, cartographers, etc., who contributed to or participated in the exploration and discovery of our world, its lands and oceans, at the annual meeting of the Society for the History of Discoveries (Oct. 30-Nov. 2, 2014 in Austin, Texas). Peer-reviewed, article-length submissions will be published in a special issue of Terrae Incognitae, vol. 48.1.
300-word proposals accompanied by a brief biographical abstract should be received by May 15th via email to Dr. Lauren Beck (lbeck [at] mta [dot] ca). Ideally contributors will both present their research and see it published in the journal, but if this is not possible, please email the editor for further information.
