This site represents the work of students in the Senior Seminar in Literary Recovery taught by Dr. Deborah Gussman at Stockton University, Spring 2015. Each student had the option of recovering and introducing an unknown or little-known text by a 19th-century American woman writer or contributing to the discussion and dialogue about a text that has been recently recovered by other scholars. They also created the pages on the writers/texts for this virtual exhibition, which provides a snapshot of their larger projects.
