In this volume, fifteen scholars from diverse backgrounds analyze American women writers' transatlantic exchanges in the nineteenth century. They show how women writers (and often their publications) traveled to create or reinforce professional networks and identities, to escape strictures on women and African Americans, to promote reform, to improve their health, to understand the workings of other nations, and to pursue cultural and aesthetic education. Presenting new material about women writers' literary friendships, travels, reception and readership, and influences, the volume offers new frameworks for thinking about transatlantic literary studies.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The influence of any collection is derived not only from its contributions but also from its role as a catalyst for new thinking and further research, and Transatlantic Women offers insights and methods that will help to map our understanding and work on transatlantic literary culture into the future."-- "Legacy"
"Scholars working in this area will welcome the collection; as the editors mention, anyone working in nineteenth-century literary studies will increasingly need to consider this transatlantic web of relations, particularly for women in the nineteenth century."-- "American Literature to 1900"
"One of the most compelling aspects of this collection is its ability to illustrate how deep, wide, and generative a project can be when editors thoughtfully curate a scholarly conversation on transatlantic interactions."-- "American Literary Realism"
"Diverse in scope and style, all the essays are thoroughly researched, up-to-date, and interesting. . . . The contributors zoom in on their subjects' letters, meetings, and friendships, and the women's interactions offer a fascinating window into the insecurities attached to authorial influence. . . . Highly recommended."-- "Choice"
