The Other Voice in Early Modern Europe
The Chicago portion of this series is closed to new submissions. In 2009-10, the series moved to the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies (University of Toronto), which continues to publish the series in partnership with Iter Press and the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies. Although no longer publishing the series, the University of Chicago Press proudly distributes post-2009 series volumes for Iter Press.

Originally founded by series editors Margaret King and Albert Rabil and the Press in 1993 as a modest proposal to make available in English translation perhaps a dozen key texts by women writers who contributed to the development of humanism during the European Renaissance (ca. 1300-1800), the Other Voice in Early Modern Europe series began publishing books in 1996. After the first half-dozen books were published, it soon became clear that the mission of the series had grown into the larger ambition of the textual recovery, not just of works by or about women that called for gender equality and equal education, but other important works, many quite popular in their day, from many different disciplines and genres, including religious history and devotional writing, economic equality and female autonomy essays, anatomy and medical treatises, philosophical and scientific works, and imaginative literature (including memoir, fiction, drama, and lyric and epic poetry). This project of textual recovery generated sixty volumes during the years of its sponsorship by the University of Chicago Press.
