Summary This interdisciplinary volume examines the role that gender plays in the early modern period and explores the shift in scholarly understanding of women's lives and works when they are placed alongside nuanced considerations of men's lives and works. With material drawing from the 2006 Attending to Early Modern Women_and Men symposium, the varied contributions consider women's works, lives, and culture across geographical regions, primarily in England, France, Germany, Italy, the Low Countries, the Caribbean, and the Islamic world
