Writing Back Through Our Mothers

A Transnational Feminist Study on the Woman's Historical Novel

By Tegan Zimmerman

For the first time in the literary tradition, the contemporary woman's historical novel (post-1970) is surveyed from a transnational feminist perspective. Analyzing the maternal (the genre's central theme) reveals that historical fiction is a transnational feminist means for challenging historical erasures, silences, normative sexuality, political exclusion, and divisions of labor.
