Two Excellent New Ashgate Titles July 24th, 2012

I’m happy to announce the publication of two new books in the Ashgate Series in Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic Studies (the book series I co-edit with Julia Wright of Dalhousie University).  Susan Manning calls Joselyn Almeida’s book, Reimagining the Transatlantic, 1780-1890, an ”important and impressive study” of the pan-Atlantic world.  Examining such authors as William Robertson, Francisco de Miranda, Toussaint Louverture, and Charles Darwin, the book undertakes “a series of deft triangulations across a century, three languages and three continents.”  The second book, Brenda R. Weber’s Women and Literary Celebrity in the Nineteenth Century: The Transatlantic Production of Fame and Gender, is is a must-read for anyone interested in exploring “how Victorian women writers on both sides of the Atlantic navigated the treacherous waters of public life.”  To quote Suzanne Raitt, “Weber’s writing is both witty and erudite,” shedding ”new light on the uneasy intersection of fame and Victorian femininity.”  Click on the titles in this blog post for information via the Ashgate website.
