transatlantic/transnational themes. Essays may address women
as characters in dramatic literature, women as playwrights,
and/or women as actors. Representative figures include
Elizabeth Inchbald, Joanna Baillie, Sophia Lee, Mary Russell
Mitford, Marie Therese DeCamp Kemble, Frances Anne Kemble,
Hannah Cowley, Sarah Siddons, Mary Robinson, and others.
