"It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity."
This ASECS panel, sponsored by the Aphra Behn Society, addresses writings by or about long eighteenth-century women who have crossed the Atlantic Ocean. The panel calls for papers that pay close attention to women's experiences as they travel (by choice or by force) across land and sea and eventually learn how to live in new places under remarkable circumstances. The panel aims to problematize the ideas of location and nationality, so it welcomes papers that complicate the seeming divide between "American" and "British" texts, writers, characters, and subjects. In addition to literary studies, this panel encourages submissions from disciplines such as history, art history, linguistics, gender studies, and oceanic studies.
