Call for Essays: Transatlantic Exchanges from the Anglo-American War to the
Emancipation Proclamation (c. 1783-1863)

transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation
to exchanges, interactions, and negotiations that occurred between and
among authors and other artists hailing from both sides of the Atlantic. As
a result, transatlantic research calls into question established
disciplinary boundaries that have long functioned to segregate various
national or cultural literatures and art forms, challenging as well the
traditional academic emphasis upon periodization and canonization.

George Moore as an Art Critic” (1893), Pater asserts that “the genius of Ingres is cosmopolitan, like
that of those old Greek artists,” then goes on to explain why “a certain cosmopolitanism [is], in
truth, an element of national character.” Essays that explore the implications of cosmopolitanism
for literary, aesthetic, mythic, historical, national, political and/ or cultural work in a Paterian
