Focusing on eighteenth-century constructions of symbolic femininity and eighteenth-century women's writing in relation to contemporary utopian discourse, this volume adjusts our understanding of the utopia of the Enlightenment, placing a unique emphasis on colonial utopias. Looking at Enlightenment-era texts by English and French women and men, contributors shed new light on the eighteenth-century legacies that continue to shape contemporary views of social and political progress.
