A panel for the annual conference of the American Society for Eighteenth-
Century Studies in Richmond, Virginia, March 26-29, 2009.
In this panel, participants are invited to consider the 18th century
transatlantic slave trade and how it impacted travel narratives;
especially as the narratives pertained to (but not limited to) female
literature, as women were becoming increasingly more mobile as well as
more vocal on their travel experiences and encounters.
