Summary
Women Rewriting Boundaries expands the work of gender and literary scholars by offering fresh insights on how to read travel writing by women. It analyzes the connections between class, gender, physicality, and sexuality as found in nineteenth-century literature. The authors discuss the myriad ways in which women writers reinforced and challenged Victorian social norms. Inspired by a special topics panel, Women Writing Boundaries, presented at the 2013 Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association's annual convention, this edited collection will be a thought-provoking resource for college- level humanities and gender studies students and their instructors
