  • Supplies a woman-centered approach to French colonial and post-colonial studies
  • Shows the inextricable links between nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first century Francophone studies
  • Illuminates the early decades of French literature and history, casting Romanticism in a world historical perspective
  • Expands knowledge of the French colonial literary corpus by bringing to light authors (Charlotte Dard, Sophie Doin) whose considerable importance for diasporic studies and women>'s history has been overlooked
  • It contributes to a fuller understanding of slavery and abolition in the French-speaking and larger Atlantic worlds
