About

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 mid-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. In addition, Legacy regularly publishes profiles of lesser-known or newly recovered authors, reprints of primary works in all genres, meditations on archival praxis and issues of literary recovery, and book reviews covering current scholarship in the field.

Legacy is published twice a year by the University of Nebraska Press and is available online through Project MUSE and JSTOR.

Legacy is the official journal of the Society for the Study of American Women Writers.
