Intercontinental Crosscurrents:
Women’s Networks across Europe and the Americas
edited by Julia Nitz, Sandra H. Petrulionis, Theresa Schön

First presented at the conference ‘Intercontinental Cross-Currents: Women’s (Net-)Works across Europe and the Americas (1789–1939)’ in  Wittenberg, Germany, in December 2013, the papers assembled in this  volume trace nineteenth-century women’s networks inside and outside  historical movements and literary texts, in diverse genres, at various  historical moments, and from different vantage points.

Considered together, the contributions attest to the potential of a  woman-centered approach to transatlantic historiographical, cultural,  and literary studies. Very much like the people, texts, and objects they  examine, they are transatlantic in scope and perspective. Truly  inspired by the idea and concept of the Atlantic Crosscurrents, these  essays confirm and emphasize interdisciplinarity and methodological  variety in (trans-)Atlantic studies. See more
