“The founding editors at the University of Maryland have established an award for the best article in each issue that carries a prize of $1000.”

 Early Modern Women: An Interdisciplinary Journal is the only journal devoted solely to the interdisciplinary and global study of women and gender during the years 1400 to 1700. Each volume gathers essays on early modern women from every country and region, by scholars from a wide range of academic disciplines, including art history, cultural studies, music, history, political science, religion, theatre, history of science, and history of philosophy.

EMWJ was founded in 2006 at the Center for Renaissance and Baroque Studies at the University of Maryland by Jane Donawerth, Adele Seeff, and Diane Wolfthal. Beginning with volume 2, EMWJ has been co-published with the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Arizona State University, under the directorship of Robert E. Bjork, who has overseen the printing and distribution of the journal. William Gentrup is now the managing editor.

Starting June 2011, and with volume 7, EMWJ is edited by Anne J. Cruz, Mary Lindemann, and Mihoko Suzuki at the University of Miami; the editorial office will be housed at the University of Miami College of Arts and Sciences Center for the Humanities. Sarah Ritcheson, a PhD candidate in English, is editorial assistant. EMWJ acknowledges the support of the Society for the Study of Early Modern Women and the Sixteenth Century Studies Society and Conference.
