The papers published in this special themed issue of the Journal of Literature and
Science on women and botany are part of a project which developed from a panel at
the 2009 British Society for Literature and Science conference. Our title, Botanising
Women: Transmission, Translation and European Exchange, illustrates the project’s
overall themes: the circulation of European ideas (notably Linnaeanism and
Rousseauism) by women, inside and outside the botanical text, the transmission of
botanical knowledge, through an exchange of plants and specimens and through the
familiar format of letters and dialogue), and the exchange of ideas around gender and natural science, both culturally and in terms of translation
