Research on women's voices against marriage, especially during the early modern period.


Paola Malpezzi Price told CA: "My primary motivation for writing my articles and book was to let more people know about the life, works, and ideas of Moderata Fonte, a sixteenth-century Venetian writer, as well as to analyze women's role and place in sixteenth-century Venice." Historians Joan Kelly and Gerda Lerner have influenced my work.

"As a woman and as a medieval and renaissance scholar, I became more and more interested first in women's writings, then in women's social roles. My book is a synthesis of both interests, focusing on a unique place: Venice!"

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
