Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceeding › Book chapter
Different theories about woman and woman's writing are surveyed. Showalter's theory on woman's culture is presented and modified, in order to create a theoretical platform for testing the hypothesis about woman's language existing outside the dominant language. The material chosen, women's letters from mainly the 18th Century in French, German, Swedish, and English, for testing this hypothesis, is presented as especially relevant for testing this hypothesis.
