Abstract

Transatlantic Interracial Sisterhoods Sarah Remond, Ellen Craft, and Harriet Jacobs in England Sirpa Salenius In the nineteenth century the transatlantic world was animated by an exchange of ideas, texts, and information that circulated between the United States and Europe. Abolitionists, social reformers, and educators who crossed the ocean contributed to the building of bridges of collaboration established around different reform movements and activism. People from various nations participated in creating communication channels that soon became stabilized. Simultaneously they contributed to the forming of an extensive web of alliances, many of which were shaped to form an interracial, intercultural, and transnational network of people dedicated to transforming society through a commitment to such causes as abolitionism and women's rights. In the transatlantic web of cooperation, activists who worked across national borders forged coalitions that embraced reform movements in myriad forms (such as temperance, education, peace, poverty, prison reform, eradication of prostitution, and others). In many instances, the struggle against various forms of discrimination intersected: activists united around such central controversies as slavery and women's rights, two pivotal nineteenth-century issues that in many movements formed a nexus with the common designator of oppression.
