Podcast Episode #103 – Etta Madden
This week we interview Etta Madden, author of Engaging Italy: American Women’s Utopian Visions and International Networks. Published by the State University of New York Press in April 2022, this book focuses on three little known Americans—Caroline Crane Marsh, Anne Hampton Brewster, and Emily Bliss Gould—whose lives intersected in an evolving Italy during the mid-19th century. Madden is the author of three additional books that explore American writers, utopian literature, and intentional communities. A professor of English at Missouri State University, she is also the recipient of a Fulbright Award and two Mellon Fellowships. Etta Madden was interviewed by BIO member Jennifer Skoog.
