In the Company of Margaret Fuller: Unexpected Genealogies of Feminism

A large part of the scholarship regarding Margaret Fuller has been devoted to her feminist sensibility, and it has emphasized her participation in circles of intellectuals advancing a gendered perspective. Among other recent works, both Toward A Female Genealogy of Transcendentalism (2014) and the volume Margaret Fuller and Her Circles (2012) have uncovered and discussed complex and rich relations between Margaret Fuller and other women writers, intellectuals and activists. In the tradition of this scholarship, this panel seeks papers that address and contribute, hopefully in surprising ways, to scrutinize and redesign the acquired lineages of feminism in Margaret Fuller and other 19th century women writers, in order to bring about new critical approaches to the study of Margaret Fuller.

We will especially welcome papers that consider archival and recovery work, and we encourage international perspectives.

Please submit a 250 word abstract and a short CV to Sonia Di Loreto ( by Saturday, February 10. Submitters will be notified of their selection before the Feb. 16 deadline.
