                      EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY WOMEN:
                    Linda Veronika Troost, Editor

will publish notes, articles, and book reviews in the fields of
literary, biographical, bibliographical, social, and cultural history.
It will focus on women in Great Britain, Europe, the Americas, and the
rest of the world during the "long" eighteenth century, extending
roughly from the restoration of the English monarchy (1660) to the
fall of Napoleon (1815).

The journal aims to become a record of women's lives and
accomplishments, not only as essayists, novelists, playwrights, poets,
translators, pamphleteers, letter-writers, and journalists, but also
as mothers, wives, daughters, queens, princesses, reformers, business
owners, educators, socialites, ladies of the manor, ladies of the
night, intellectuals, natural philosophers, travelers, theater
managers, actresses, musicians, artists, artisans, consumers, arbiters
of taste, and promoters of fads, fashions, and morals.

In addition to notes and articles, each volume will print an annotated
list of newly edited works by 18th-century women (anthologies,
classroom texts, critical editions) as well as several in-depth
reviews of recent scholarship.

The annual is aimed at advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and
professional scholars in literature and history as well as the lay
person interested in the growing fields of women's studies and
cultural studies in the late 17th, 18th, and early 19th centuries.

Original scholarly work may be submitted for two categories: notes
(1,000-2,000 words) and essays (5,000-13,000 words). Send one double-
spaced copy in (preferably) MLA style to:

                Prof. Linda Veronika Troost
                Editor, EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY WOMEN
                Washington and Jefferson College
                Washington, PA 15301-4801
