Readers, writers, salonnieres: female networks in Europe, 1700-1900

Dow, Gillian and Brown, Hilary (eds.) (2011) Readers, writers, salonnieres: female networks in Europe, 1700-1900, Peter Lang, 283pp. (European Connections, 31).

Record type: Book


The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries saw an explosion in Europe of interest in foreign languages and literatures. This book explores how early generations of women writers formed connections with each other across national boundaries. The volume sheds light on female networks spanning Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Holland and Denmark. It includes essays on 'virtual' networks, that is, on women who read, translated or were inspired by the work of women abroad, as well as essays exploring actual links between writers of different nationalities, be it through correspondence, visits or contact in the salons.
The volume is based on selected papers from a conference held at Chawton House Library in 2008 in conjunction with the pan-European 'New Approaches to European Women's Writing' research project
