"Exaltadas: A Female Genealogy of Transcendentalism" (Special journal issue; proposals due 15 March 2010)

Tuesday, July 7, 2009 - 8:22pm
ESQ: A Journal of the American Renaissance (Washington State University)

Margaret Fuller's bicentennial approaches in 2010, and plans for celebration affirm her arrival (or return) as a member of the American transcendentalist "pantheon." But scholarship on the formative and reformative influence of other women on the movement has only recently begun to quicken. Recognizing this new wave of exploration and following a line of inquiry suggested by ESQ's 2003 special issue, "Reexamining the American Renaissance," the editors of the journal and guest editor Phyllis Cole invite submissions for a substantial thematic issue that will broadly conceptualize the role of women in the origin and evolution of transcendentalist thought and action.
