  • Title: Now the First Stone is Set: Christine de Pisan and the Colonial City [The author argues that Christine de Pizan in both the "Livre de la cite des dames" and the "Ditie de Jehanne d'Arc" advances a prophetic vision of a Francocentric domination of the East. He focuses in particular on the characters of Semiramis, Zenobia, and Dido. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
