A panel for the annual conference of the American Society for Eighteenth-
Century Studies in Richmond, Virginia, March 26-29, 2009.


In this panel, participants are invited to consider the 18th century
transatlantic slave trade and how it impacted travel narratives;
especially as the narratives pertained to (but not limited to) female
literature, as women were becoming increasingly more mobile as well as
more vocal on their travel experiences and encounters.

Papers submitted may reflect both the African and American slave trades
as well as literary viewpoints that are historical and/or culturally
focused and may also explore issues such as slavery’s impact on
convictism, resettlement, and violence in the newly colonized areas.

Please mail 250-word proposals to (preferred) or
to Aimee Levesque, 283 Stillwell Avenue, Kenmore, NY 14217-2135 by
September 15, 2008.

may have.
