As a Transcendentalist, feminist theorist, literary journal editor, surveyor of reform institutions, and foreign correspondent, Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) was one of the central figures of the antebellum period. We hope that you will join us for what promises to be a fascinating exchange of ideas and insights about this remarkable woman.
