This symposium aims to foster dialogue among researchers and practitioners dealing with women's writing in a variety of fields:

• transnational writing and writing across cultures
• writing across academic disciplines, across the humanities and social sciences, across the arts and sciences
• encounters between the critical and the creative, the academic and the popular, art and life, history and life-writing, orality and literacy, collective and individual authorship, analysant and analyst
• crossing temporal boundaries: women's writing of the past impacting on the present, imagining futures for women's writing.
