Margaret Fuller's bicentennial approaches in 2010, and plans for celebration affirm her arrival (or return) as a member of the American transcendentalist "pantheon." But scholarship on the formative and reformative influence of other women on the movement has only recently begun to quicken. Recognizing this new wave of exploration and following a line of inquiry suggested by ESQ's 2003 special issue, "Reexamining the American Renaissance," the editors of the journal and guest editor Phyllis Cole invite submissions for a substantial thematic issue that will broadly conceptualize the role of women in the origin and evolution of transcendentalist thought and action.

"Creative acts of social justice fulfill every function that can be asked of a work of art.
They inspire us, make us think in new ways, and birth new beauty and dignity in our world."
--Rebecca Alban Hofberger, "True Visions"
"Screw Hope; Let's Act"
--Walker Lane "Nope to Hope: False Capital and the Spectacle Triumphant"
Jennifer Neville's "Representations of the Natural World in Old English Poetry" and Gillian Rudd's "Greenery: Ecocritical Readings of Late Medieval English Literature" are examples of the growing interest in ecocritical readings of medieval literature. The ways medieval writers thought about and interacted with nature and wilderness are important and relevant in regard to other conceptual frames and formulations that governed medieval thought and behavior. Papers in this panel will address the representations of nature in medieval texts as they pertained to and promoted political ideologies and programs of instruction or colonization. Papers on English and Continental literature are welcome.
