Overview

Taking a multidisciplinary approach to the complex cultural exchanges that took place between Britain and America from 1750 to 1900, this collection examines material and visual cultures alongside literary studies. Intended for researchers in literature and in visual and material cultures, this collection challenges single-subject boundaries by redefining transatlantic studies as the collective examination of the complex and interrelated cultural transactions that crisscrossed the Atlantic through the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
