This collaborative blog is part of the project ‘Cultural Connections: Transatlantic Literary Women’ to take place in Glasgow until Summer 2017.

The series will explore the lives and writings of transatlantic women in all genres from the early nineteenth century to the present day. Themes may include: female writers’ involvement in the transatlantic anti-slavery network, campaigning for (and against) suffrage, famous “others”, transatlanticism in a digital age, transatlantic modernisms, Edith Wharton: adaptations of transatlanticism, race and class, transatlantic poetics.

Regular updates and events will be posted here. Join us and help shape the series. Everyone welcome!

This project is co-funded by the US Embassy and the British Association for American Studies.

Our logo, posters and designs were created by the wonderful Katrina Falco.
