New Publication: Toward a Female Genealogy of Transcendentalism

Newly published: Toward a Female Genealogy of Transcendentalism, edited by Jana L. Argersinger and Phyllis Cole. This first large-scale, collaborative study of women’s voices and their vital role in the American transcendentalist movement began as the 2011 special issue of ESQ and is now greatly expanded and published by the University of Georgia Press, 2014. The collection contains seventeen essays and an equal number of ‘primary interludes,’ newly recovered or understudied texts.
