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

A new and burgeoning field of interdisciplinary investigation,
transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation

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.

that of those old Greek artists,” then goes on to explain why “a certain cosmopolitanism [is], in
