“A promising addition to cultural studies, literary criticism, the humanities and social sciences, the applied sciences, and, of course, to women’s studies. Linda Troost’s enlightened periodical reveals the pleasing diversity of pursuits which has drawn so many of us into the eighteenth century…”
—Beverly Schneller, The East-Central Intelligencer

Eighteenth-Century Women publishes articles and book reviews in the fields of literary, biographical, bibliographical, social, and cultural history. It focuses on women in Great Britain, Europe, the Americas, and the rest of the world during the “long” eighteenth century, extending roughly from the restoration of the English monarchy (1660) to the death of Jane Austen (1817).

The journal aims to be a record of women’s lives and accomplishments, not only as essayists, novelists, playwrights, poets, translators, pamphleteers, letter-writers, and journalists, but also as mothers, wives, daughters, queens, princesses, reformers, business owners, educators, socialites, ladies of the manor, ladies of the night, intellectuals, natural philosophers, travelers, theater managers, actresses, musicians, artists, artisans, consumers, arbiters of taste, and promoters of fads, fashions, and morals.
