EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY WOMEN, a hardcover serial publication from AMS Press,
seeks original, well researched submissions in the fields of literary,
biographical, bibliographical, social, and cultural history.

It focuses 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 death of Jane
Austen (1817).

The publication aims to be 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.
