Exploring the ways in which transatlantic relationships functioned in the nineteenth century to unsettle hierarchical models of gender, race and national and cultural differences, this collection takes up a rich range of authors and topics, from Charlotte Smith and Charles Brockden Brown to Herman Melville, and from representations of indigenous religion in British Romantic literary discourse to gender and transatlantic travel, the abolitionist movement and the transatlantic adventure novel.
