In print since 1984, Legacy is the only scholarly journal to focus specifically on American women’s writing, broadly defined, from the seventeenth through the early twentieth centuries. We are interested in projects that examine the works of individual authors; genre studies; analyses of race, ethnicity, gender, class, and sexualities in women’s literature; historical and material cultural issues pertinent to women’s lives and literary works; and myriad other topics.
