A Selected Edition of the Journalism of Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), American Writer and Intellectual

Preparation of a selected critical edition of the journalism written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935), American feminist author and intellectual. 

Charlotte Perkins Gilman (1860-1935) is considered one of the most well-known and influential feminist intellectuals of the early twentieth century. Best known for her short story "The Yellow Wall-Paper" (1892), Gilman was a prolific author who wrote more than a dozen books, several plays, and hundreds of short stories and poems. From the early 1880s through the early 1930s, she was also a journalist, contributing nearly fifteen hundred articles to newspapers and magazines. Despite her prodigious journalistic output and recent efforts among scholars to bring her lesser-known writings into view, her journalism remains largely understudied. No collection of her journalism currently exists. My edited volume would not only make her journalism accessible to scholars and students but also provide a new critical framework for considering her legacy and contribute to ongoing efforts among feminist scholars to recover and advance the study of women's writing through the periodical archive.
