"She Will Needs See and Be Seen" : Women as Curious Objects and Curiose in Early Modern England

Abstract : "In Women and Curiosity in Early Modern England and France, the rehabilitation of female curiosity between the sixteenth and the eighteenth centuries is thoroughly investigated for the first time, in a comparative perspective that confronts two epistemological and religious traditions. In the context of the early modern blooming 'culture of curiosity,' women's desire for knowledge made them both curious subjects and curious objects, a double relation to curiosity that is meticulously inquired into by the authors in this volume. The social, literary, theological and philosophical dimensions of women's persistent association with curiosity offer a rich contribution to cultural history"―Provided by publisher
