This collaborative blog is part of the ‘Cultural Connections: Transatlantic Literary Women’ series, which started in Glasgow in January 2017.

The project explores 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!

What people have said about our events:

“…a project like the Transatlantic Literary Women Series seems more crucial than ever in recalling the colourful and heartwarming narratives of cultural exchange and social transformation inspired by transatlantic experiences.”

Maria Sledmere, U.S. Studies Online

“The day’s discussions were thought-provoking and engaging, in a time when coverage of senseless conflicts and rampant inequality still dominate the media.”

Alistair Millar, U.S. Studies Online

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