Martine Reid, Professor of French at Lille III, and Domna C. Stanton (pictured), Distinguished Professor of French at The Graduate Center, CUNY, will talk about their respective experiences in publishing the texts of French women writers, as well as on their own research on women authors. Martine Reid is the editor of the collection Femmes de Lettres (Gallimard). In her most recent book, Des femmes en littérature (Belin, 2010), she re-writes French literary history from the eighteenth-century onwards through the study of a dozen women authors until recently neglected or ostracized. Domna Stanton recently edited and translated in collaboration two volumes for the series The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe (Chicago University Press), one on Gabrielle Suchon, the other on seventeenth-century fairy-tales written by women. She is also the author of Women Writ, Women Writing: Gendered Discourse and Differences in Seventeenth-Century France (Chicago, 2007) and of The Defiant Muse: French Feminist Poems (The Feminist Press, 1986).
