I am seeking submissions on the following topics:

Cross-Gender Transactions in American Book History: Men editing women, women editing men, women reading male-authored texts, men reading female-authored texts, men mentoring women, women mentoring men, and other transactions and mediations between men and women in the production, circulation, and consumption of American literary texts. New case studies or new approaches to old examples.
