ABO: Interactive Journal  for Women in the Arts, 1640–1830 is pleased to announce ABO Public: An Interactive Forum for Women in the Arts, 1640–1830.

Launching in April 2014, ABOPublic is a new public scholarship forum that integrates public and academic interests through intersecting feminist perspectives on gender, sexuality, race, class, privilege, geography, politics, culture, and the arts. Each issue may explore different themes related to eighteenth-century studies. ABOPublic invites submissions that  consider any of the topics below or other topics relating to eighteenth century studies.
