Beschreibung:

As in many literatures of the New World grappling with issues of slavery and freedom, stories of racial insurrection frequently coincided with stories of cross-racial
romance in nineteenth-century U.S. print culture. Colleen O'Brien explores how authors
such as Harriet Jacobs, Elizabeth Livermore, and Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda imagined the
expansion of race and gender-based rights as a hemispheric affair, drawing together the United
States with Africa, Cuba, and other parts of the Caribbean. Placing less familiar women writers
in conversation with their more famous contemporaries-Ralph Waldo Emerson, Margaret Fuller, and
Lydia Maria Child-O'Brien traces the transnational progress of freedom through the
antebellum cultural fascination with cross-racial relationships and insurrections. Her book
mines a variety of sources-fiction, political rhetoric, popular journalism, race science, and
biblical treatises-to reveal a common concern: a future in which romance and rebellion engender
radical social and political transformation.
