Adaptation, Intermediality and
the British Celebrity Biopic
Edited by Mrta Minier, University of South Wales, UK
and Maddalena Pennacchia, Roma Tre University, Italy
Beginning with the premise that the biopic is a form of
adaptation and an example of intermediality, this collection
examines the multiplicity of source texts and the concurrent
issues of celebrity, fidelity and authenticity that accompany
this genre. Offering case studies of film biographies of
literary icons, royals and other famous individuals, the
essays explore issues of production and consumption,
generic fluidity and hybridity, and the biopics myth-making
and myth-breaking potential.

American Environmental Fiction,


17821847
Matthew Wynn Sivils, Iowa State University, USA
Sivils set out to draw attention to a literature that has
been largely overlooked in the formation of the American
literary canon. In this he succeeds admirably. As a childrens
literature scholar, I am delighted to see works aimed at
children incorporated into such a study Overall, this is a
very welcome study which finds the balance between the
general and the particular. I might also add that it is extremely
pleasurable to read.
International Research Society for Childrens Literature
Situating the origins of American environmental fiction in
early Republic natural histories, Indian captivity narratives,
juvenile literature, and the subsequent development of
a uniquely American brand of environmental fiction that
began with James Fenimore Coopers The Pioneers, Matthew
Wynn Sivils argues that these works of early environmental
thought contributed to a growing cultural conception of
the environments importance in shaping the identity of the
fledgling nation decades before the influences of Emersons
Nature and Thoreaus Walden.

ASHGATE SERIES IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY


TRANSATLANTIC STUDIES
Series Editors: Kevin Hutchings, University of Northern British Columbia, Canada and Julia M. Wright,
Dalhousie University, Canada
Focusing on the long nineteenth century (ca. 17501900), this series offers a forum for the publication of scholarly
work investigating the literary, historical, artistic, and philosophical foundations of transatlantic culture. A vital field
of interdisciplinary investigation, transatlantic scholarship contextualizes its objects of study in relation to exchanges,
interactions, and negotiations that occurred between and among authors and other artists hailing from both sides of the
Atlantic. As a result, transatlantic research calls into question established disciplinary boundaries that have long functioned
to segregate various national or cultural literatures and art forms, challenging as well the traditional academic emphasis upon
periodization and canonization. By examining representations dealing with such topics as travel and exploration, migration and
diaspora, slavery, aboriginal culture, revolution, colonialism and anti-colonial resistance, the series offers new insights into the
hybrid or intercultural basis of transatlantic identity, politics, and aesthetics.
The editors invite English language studies focusing on any area of the long nineteenth century, including (but not limited to)
innovative works spanning transatlantic Romantic and Victorian contexts. Manuscripts focusing on European, African, US
American, Canadian, Caribbean, Central and South American, and Indigenous literature, art, and culture are welcome. We will
consider proposals for monographs, collaborative books, and edited collections.

Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic
Reprinting and the Embodied
Book

Performing Authorship in the


Nineteenth-Century Transatlantic
Lecture Tour

Jessica DeSpain, Southern Illinois University


Edwardsville, USA

Amanda Adams, Muskingum University, USA

Jessica DeSpain brings together an intriguing combination


of works by Charles Dickens, Susan Warner, Fanny Kemble,
and Walt Whitman to produce a rich understanding of the
culture of reprinting. The result is a thought-provoking and
informative exploration of reprinting and textual adaptation in
a transatlantic context.
Christine Bold, University of Guelph, Canada
Jessica DeSpain examines reprints by Charles Dickens,
Susan Warner, Fanny Kemble and Walt Whitman to theorize
the ongoing transatlantic transformation of texts that took
place before adoption of the Chace Act of 1891. As authors,
readers, and publishers struggled with the unpredictability
of the textual body, the physical book and the physical body
became metaphors of flux, and discourses of destabilized
bodies inflected issues essential to transatlantic culture,
including class, gender, religion and slavery.

Each chapter of Amanda Adamss engaging book tells an


interesting story about the emergence of literary celebrity in
the second half of the nineteenth century and about the ways
in which public performance represented an attempt to control
textual reputations.
Andrew Taylor, University of Edinburgh, UK
Expanding our understanding of what it meant to be a
nineteenth-century author, Amanda Adams takes up the
concept of performative, embodied authorship in relationship
to the transatlantic lecture tour. Adams examines tours by
British and American authors, including Frederick Douglass,
Harriet Beecher Stowe, Harriet Martineau, Charles Dickens,
and Oscar Wilde, arguing that these tours were a central
aspect of nineteenth-century authorship at a time when
authors were becoming celebrities and celebrities were
international.

Cathy Rex, University of WisconsinEau Claire, USA


Comparing representations of Indianness by Anglo-American
engravers and later by early Anglo-American women writers,
Cathy Rex shows that iconic images of Native figures
informed both the early republican American identity and the
authorial identity of women writers like Mary Rowlandson
and Lydia Maria Child. By contextualizing these well-known
narratives and images as constitutive of one another, Rex
brings a new, more textually inclusive perspective to the field
of early American studies.

Karen E. Laird

BRITISH LITERATURE IN CONTEXT IN THE LONG


EIGHTEENTH CENTURY

In The Art of Adapting Victorian Literature, 18481920,


Karen E. Laird alternates between readings of nineteenthcentury stage and twentieth-century silent film adaptations
to demonstrate the working practices of the first adapters of
Victorian fiction. Focusing on Charlotte Bronts Jane Eyre,
Charles Dickenss David Copperfield, and Wilkie Collinss
The Woman in White, Laird charts a new cultural history
of literary adaptation as it developed throughout the long
nineteenth-century.

This excellent volume of new research on the Bluestocking

The Evolution of a Social Role

Elizabeth Eger, Kings College London, UK


Challenging the theory that the Bluestockings spanned only
the period from the 1750s through the 1790s, this collection
argues for a new vision of the Bluestockings as belonging to
a chain of interconnected networks that can be traced from
the early eighteenth century to the present. The contributors
explore the activities of the Bluestockings in a variety of
cultural and social realms, trace their influence through the
nineteenth century, and propose that Bluestocking practice
be reinvented in the present.

Seth Whidden, Villanova University, USA


Intelligent and well-argued, Seth Whiddens book deftly
combines literary, political, and historical considerations to
examine literary authority in nineteenth-century France.
Joseph Acquisto, University of Vermont, USA
Considering the crises of literary authority in nineteenthcentury French literature against the backdrop of the
Second Empire (18521870) and the aftermath of the bloody
Paris Commune of 1871, Seth Whidden focuses on the
phenomena-literary collaboration, parody, destabilized poetic
form, the substitution of one poetic or narrative voice with
that of the many-that enabled challenges to the traditional
status of the writer and, by extension, the political authority
that it reflected.

from the Victorian period to the present. The contributors
examine literature, film and art, as well as moments of

Tracing the literary relationship between British women


and the Asiatic Society of Bengal, Kathryn Freeman argues
that women writers, distinct from their male counterparts,
interrogated Orientalist distortions of India through the
lens of gender. Her study invites us to rethink the Romantic
paradigm of canonical writers as replicators of Orientalists
cultural imperialism in favor of a more complicated stance
that accommodates the differences between male and
female authors with respect to India.

This series recognizes and supports innovative work on the child and on literature for children and adolescents that informs
teaching and engages with current and emerging debates in the field. Proposals are welcome for interdisciplinary and
comparative studies by humanities scholars working in a variety of fields, including literature; book history, periodicals history,
and print culture and the sociology of texts; theater, film, musicology and performance studies; history, including the history of
education; gender studies; art history and visual culture; cultural studies; and religion.

Examining nineteenth-century British hymns for children,


Alisa Clapp-Itnyre argues that the unique qualities
of childrens hymnody created a space for childrens
empowerment. As Clapp-Itnyre shows, the agency afforded
children as singers meant that they were actively engaged
with the text, music, and pictures of their hymnals. Informed
by extensive archival research, British Hymn Books for
Children, 18001900 brings this understudied genre of
Victorian culture to critical light.

Fatherhood, Authority, and


British Reading Culture,
18311907
Melissa Shields Jenkins, Wake Forest University, USA
This is a distinctly new kind of book on fatherhood: an
innovative study of the troubled relations between real and
fictional fathers and sons, and the extra-literary texts that
shaped them. Juxtaposing J.S. Mill and Max Weber, Melissa
Jenkinss lively and provocative analysis tracks shifting
notions of patriarchal authority from Gaskell to Gosse
through engagement with conduct books and family prayers,
palimpsests and science writing, to create an idea of the
father perpetually under reconstruction.
Valerie Sanders, University of Hull, UK
In analyzing the evolution of patriarchal authority in
nineteenth-century culture, Melissa Shields Jenkins argues
that Victorian novelists found new models within nonnarrative forms such as conduct books, biography, religious
manuals, political speeches and professional writing in the
fields of history and science. Jenkinss book contributes
to our understanding of the part played by fathers in the
Victorian cultural imagination, and sheds new light on the
structures underlying the Victorian novel.

The position of George Eliots poetry within Victorian poetry

of the writer, as Wendy S. Williams shows in her in-depth
examination of Eliots poetry and her role as poetess.
Williams examines Eliots poetry in relationship to her gender

that Eliots adoption of the poetess persona reveals her
commitment to help refine society through compassion and

The Idea of Europe in British


Travel Narratives, 17891914
Katarina Gephardt, Kennesaw State University, USA
Showing how specific rhetorical strategies used in
nineteenth-century British travel writing produced fictional
representations of continental Europe in works by Ann
Radcliffe, Lord Byron, Charles Dickens, and Bram Stoker,
Katarina Gephardt argues that nineteenth-century writers
envisioned their country simultaneously as distinct from
the Continent and as a part of Europe. She suggests that
their imaginative geography of Europe anticipated Britains
ambivalence about European integration.

Drawing attention to the medieval churches and abbeys that


appear frequently in Jane Austens novels, Moore argues that
these sacred spaces are not merely picturesque backgrounds
but tangible reminders of the past that raise important
social and economic questions and align her with a long
tradition of nostalgia for the medieval sacred landscape.
Moores juxtaposition of Austens novels with sixteenth- and
seventeenth-century texts reveals Austens engagement
with the long national conversation about the meaning and
consequences of the Reformation.

Chase Pielak, Ashford University, USA


In his study of the presence of animals in early nineteenthcentury works by Charles and Mary Lamb, John Clare,
William Wordsworth, Samuel Taylor Coleridge, and Lord
Byron, Chase Pielak observes that images of dead and deadly
animals coincided with questions about what constitutes
human life and its boundaries. He argues that each author
uses language that ultimately betrays itself to expose beastly
disruptions that not only startle the authors themselves but
serve as landmarks within Romantic literature.

The Painter as Poet


Brian Donnelly, University of California, USA
This well-researched and erudite book will appeal to both
Rossetti specialists and a broader audience of Victorian
scholars. Dealing with both art and literature, Reading Dante
Gabriel Rossetti excels in close visual and textual readings
and offers fresh insights into the work of the painter-poet.
Amelia Yeates, Liverpool Hope University, UK
Suggesting that Rossettis work should be approached
through his poetry, Brian Donnelly argues that it is both
inscribed by and inscribes the development of verbal as
well as visual culture in the Victorian period. He situates
Rossettis poetry as the key to all of his work and central
in its representation of the dominant discourses of the
Victorian era: faith, sex, consumption, death, and the nature
of representation itself.

Dewey W. Hall, California State Polytechnic University,

This book brings a historical perspective to the most
important discussion of our time. It takes the observation and
recording of natural phenomena by Gilbert White in eighteenth
century Southern England as its starting point, showing how
this seemingly simple activity influenced thinking through
the nineteenth century. Dewey W. Hall clearly demonstrates
the influence of the new sciences such as meteorology on the
literature of two hundred years ago.
Jeff Cowton, Wordsworth Trust, UK
In his study of Romantic naturalists and early
environmentalists, Hall claims the creation of the National
Trust in the United Kingdom and the National Parks in the
United States were both shaped by literature. Central to Halls
project are links among Gilbert White, William Wordsworth,
Ralph Waldo Emerson, Octavia Hill and John Muir in the
context of the vexed relationship between the ecosystem
and the machine during the nineteenth century.

NORTH AMERICAN LITERATURE AND


THE ENVIRONMENT, 16001900

Ann C. Colley, State University College of New York, USA

Series Editor: Matthew Wynn Sivils, Iowa State University, USA


Building on the growing interest in the environmental humanities, this series focuses on pre-1900 American literary culture
the themes, figures, and issues that emerged during this vital period. Proposals are welcome for monographs and edited
collections on nature writing, animal studies, environmental fiction, natural history, print culture, natural theology, ecocritical
theory, gender studies, Native American culture, life writing, captivity narratives, slave narratives, maritime accounts and other
topics and approaches associated with the range of cultural production that stretched from Native American oral traditions to
the dawn of the twentieth century. We especially encourage interdisciplinary projects, as well as those that take transnational
and hemispheric approaches.

Performance and Cultural Memory


in the Post-Napoleonic Era
Dana Van Kooy, Michigan Technological University, USA
Dana Van Kooy draws critical attention to Percy Bysshe
Shelley as a dramatist and argues that his dramas represent
a critical paradigm of romanticism in which history is
staged. This book examines each of Shelleys dramas as a
radical cultural performance that reformulates the familiar
experiences of war, revolution, slavery and domestic tyranny.
It also makes clear how Shelley as a writer was engaged in
nineteenth-century theatre, print politics, and the political
protests that followed in the aftermath of Waterloo.

Staging the Peninsular War


Susan Valladares, Worcester College, University
of Oxford, UK
Drawing upon innovative archival research, this study
confirms the centrality of theatre and the impact of Iberian
cultures in early nineteenth-century Britain. Valladaress
carefully researched and convincingly argued volume is an
invaluable contribution to the study of the politics of the early
nineteenth-century stage and, more generally, to the fields of
Romantic Anglo-Hispanic and Anglo-Portuguese Studies.
Diego Saglia, University of Parma, Italy
In her study of English theatre during the Peninsular War,
Susan Valladares contextualizes the theatrical treatment of
the war within the larger political and ideological axes of
Romantic performance. From its nuanced reading of Richard
Brinsley Sheridans Pizarro (1799), to its accounts of wartime
productions of Shakespeare, description of performances
at the minor theatres, and detailed case study of dramatic
culture in Bristol, Valladaress book reveals how theatrical
entertainments reflected and shaped public feeling on the
Peninsular campaign.

In recent years, the assumption that traditional songs

some traditional singers known to have learned songs from

Exploring the place of nature in Victorian womens poetry,
Fabienne Moine examines the work of canonical poets
such as Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Christina Rossetti,
that of lesser-known writers such as Mary Howitt and Eliza
Cook, and the verse of non-professional poets who have
received little critical attention. Moine shows that these
women reconstructed the natural world in poems that
raise questions about the validity and the scope of cultural
representations of nature, questioning the social practices
that mould and fossilise cultural identities.

Ann Colleys magisterial Wild Animal Skins in Victorian


Britain brilliantly explores the Victorians fascination with
wild skins. Reading this book, we are changed not only by its
wide-ranging erudition, but by its moral vision. Like Edward
Lear who, Colley argues, in both his nonsense verses and his
natural history illustrations offered a glimpse of a creatures
subjectivity we may find that nonhuman animal minds
make us feel uneasy in our own skins.

In her study of the challenges, preoccupations, and


disordered circumstances that attended Great Britains
amassing of wild skins, Ann C. Colley makes extensive use
of archival materials, as well as of recent theories concerning
skin and touch, to examine the collecting and exhibiting
practices of individuals, museums, and a provincial zoo. She
focuses on issues of empire, representation, and natural
history to examine the meaning, metaphoric uses, and
cognitive function of skin for the Victorian public.

Decadent Romanticism:
17801914

The Dog in the


Dickensian Imagination

Edited by Kostas Boyiopoulos and Mark Sandy,


Durham University, UK

Beryl Gray

Alert to Romanticisms prescience in contemplating the


excesses of its own decaying other self, the 12 essays gathered
in this timely collection embrace the dark splendors and
dying glories that connect Romanticism and fin-de-sicle
decadence in British and European literature and culture.
Spanning the period from Baillie and Byron, Coleridge and
Keats to Swinburne, Symons, and Wilde, the book is packed
with new insights into Romanticisms strange legacies to the
nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
Nicholas Roe, University of St Andrews, Scotland
For all its strong reactions against Romanticism, Decadence
shared with the period a mutual distrust of the philosophy of
utilitarianism and the aesthetics of neo-Classicism. Decadent
Romanticism reflects on the interstices between Romantic
and Decadent literature and explores these movements
obsessions with subjectivity, isolation, addiction, fragmentation,
representation, romance, and voyeurism, as well as a poetics of
desire and anxieties over the purpose of aestheticism.

Pre-Raphaelite Masculinities
Constructions of Masculinity in
Art and Literature

This book informs and entertains. Unlike some monographs


these days, its title really does identify its subject: the
Dickensian imagination. Gray understands her charge to
encompass both what ardent Dickensians relish details
of Dickenss life and what many Dickens scholars seek,
an enlarged and nuanced comprehension of his fecund
imagination.
Review 19
In her study of Dickenss relationship to canines, Gray shows
that dogs, real and invented, were intrinsic to Dickenss
vision and experience of London and its representation. She
makes use of personal reminiscences, periodicals, images
of dogs by portrait artists and Dickenss illustrators, and
institutional archives to shed light not only on Dickenss life
and works, but also on his societys complex and conflicting
perceptions of and attitudes towards dogs.

Dickens, Reynolds, and


Mayhew on Wellington Street
The Print Culture of a Victorian Street
Mary L. Shannon, University of Roehampton, UK
Mary L. Shannons informative book offers an entirely new
way to think about print culture. In focusing on Wellington
Street off the Strand, where important Victorian writers such as
Dickens, Mayhew, and Reynolds maintained their offices, she
demonstrates the significance of geography for understanding
the print networks that developed in midcentury London.

Edited by Alan M. Weinberg, University of South Africa


and Timothy Webb, University of Bristol, UK
These erudite and critically attentive essays convince us of
the lasting significance of Shelleys less familiar poetical and
prose works, as much as they render unfamiliar the better
known passages and ideas in Shelleys poetry and prose.
With assured critical purpose, the collection challenges and
revises our preconceptions about Shelleys attitudes towards
antiquity, European culture, the gothic, nationhood, and
ethnicity, as well as his practices as a poet and commitment
to the medium of prose. The Neglected Shelley signals vitally
innovative directions in the field of Shelley studies for years
to come.

Anne Humpherys, City University of New York, USA,

Mark Sandy, Durham University, UK

Between 1843 and 1853, Household Words, Reynoldss Weekly


Newspaper, the Examiner, Punch, and the serial edition of
London Labour and the London Poor were all published from
Wellington Street off the Strand, which housed the offices
of Charles Dickens, G.W.M. Reynolds and Henry Mayhew.
Shannon examines the implications of their close proximity
for the editors themselves, for nineteenth-century publishing,
and for the reading public.

Building on the work begun in Weinberg and Webbs 2009


collection, The Unfamiliar Shelley, this new collection takes
up further work by Percy Bysshe Shelley that has received
inadequate critical attention. The Neglected Shelley shows
that even the poets apparently slighter works are important
in their own right and are richly instructive as expressions of
Shelleys developing art of composition and diverse interests
throughout his career.

Reading and the Victorians


Edited by Matthew Bradley, University of Liverpool, UK
and Juliet John, Royal Holloway, University of London, UK
These reader friendly essays convey the excitement of
discovering how 150 years ago reading transformed peoples
lives. We learn how our forebears illuminated a reading space,
created through diaries a life that counts, copiously registered
their opinions in marginalia, and taught women that reading
can be a dynamic, collaborative activity. We also learn that
privileging reading might suppress other needful skills such
as observation and imagination. These path-breaking studies
significantly enrich the history weve inherited both of books
and of readers.
Robert L. Patten, University of London, UK
Bringing together historians, literary scholars, theorists,
librarians, and historians of the book, Reading and the
Victorians examines the era when reading underwent a
swifter and more radical transformation than at any other
moment in history. The contributors stress the continuities
and the conflicts between the Victorian period and our own,
in essays that examine nineteenth-century reading in all its
personal, historical, literary, and material contexts, and also
ask questions about how we read the Victorians reading in
the present day.

History
Art in the Time of Colony
Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll
EMPIRES AND THE MAKING OF THE MODERN WORLD,
16502000

This is a stunning and ambitious study of cross cultural


encounters which reveals their nuanced and unexpected
poetics and violence. Khadija von Zinnenburg Carrolls self
proclaimed museum in a book employs a creative and
highly original way of thinking about the time of the colony
through anachronism and how the arc of colonial time might
be best thought of as being like the boomerang. Her stark
juxtapositions and subtle weaving together of Aboriginal
and colonial nineteenth-century art create emotive and
acute alignments that are fascinating and timely. Rigorously
researched, Art in the Time of the Colony is a seminal study
that will change the way in which scholars approach visual
culture and the postcolony. A tour de force.
Natasha Eaton, University College London, UK
It is often assumed that the verbal and visual languages of
Indigenous people had little influence upon the classification
of scientific, legal, and artistic objects in the metropolises
and museums of nineteenth-century colonial powers.
However colonized locals did more than merely collect
material for interested colonizers. In developing the concept
of anachronism for the analysis of colonial material this
book writes the complex biographies for five key objects that
exemplify, embody, and refract the tensions of nineteenthcentury history.

The Ashgate Research Companion


to Imperial Germany
Edited by Matthew Jefferies, University of Manchester, UK
This scintillating collection presents the state of the art on
the German Empire what made it tick, how it fits within
the larger sweep of history, why scholars disagree about its
problems and prospects. The chapters expand the limits of
the genre, offering remarkable breadth and unique depth.
With its vivid prose and judicious analysis, this book will be
indispensable to novices and experts alike.
James Retallack, University of Toronto, Canada
This companion is a significant addition to the body of
scholarship on Germanys imperial era with the emphasis
very much on the present and future. Questions of continuity
remain a vital line of historical enquiry and while it may
have been short-lived, the Kaiserreich remains central to
modern German and European history. The collection will
provide a lively take on this fascinating period of history, from
Germanys unification in 1871 until the end of World War I.

SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND CULTURE, 17001945

The four decades between the two Universal Exhibitions


of 1888 and 1929 were formative in the creation of modern
Barcelona. Architecture and art blossomed in the work of
Antoni Gaud and many others. At the same time, social unrest
tore the city apart. Topics such as art nouveau and anarchism
have attracted the attention of numerous historians. Yet the
crucial role of science, technology and medicine in the cultural
makeup of the city has been largely ignored. The ten articles of
this book recover the richness and complexity of the scientific
culture of fin de sicle Barcelona. This volume shows that
the city around 1900 was both a creator and facilitator of
knowledge but also a space substantially transformed by the
appropriation of this knowledge by its unruly citizens.

Becoming a Romanov. Grand


Duchess Elena of Russia and
her World (18071873)
Marina Soroka and Charles A. Ruud, both at
Western University, Canada
Becoming a Romanov offers a new understanding of Russian
and international events of the era, the Romanovs role in
them, the degree of autonomy enjoyed by high-born women
in Russia and the ways in which new ideas gained ground in
the nineteenth-century Russian empire. Based on abundant
and largely unused archival sources, published documents
and literature of the period in French, Russian, German,
Italian and English, this is the first book about Grand
Duchess Elena and it expertly interweaves the story of a
womans life with that of Imperial Russian high politics.

Examining key factors in the successes and failures of a


pivotal movement that aided the colonized people of the
Congo and broadened the idea of human rights, this book
provides a valuable update to scholarship on the history of
humanitarianism in Africa. The Congo Reform movement built
on the institutional experience of overseas humanitarianism,
the energy of evangelical political involvement, and
innovations in racial, imperial, and nationalist discourse to
create political energy. Often portrayed as the efforts of a few
key people, especially E.D. Morel, this book demonstrates
that the movement increasingly manifested itself as an
institutionalized campaign that could pursue its goals even
in the absence of its hardworking founder.

THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE IN CONTEXT

The British Pharmacopoeia has provided official standards for


the quality of substances and articles used in medicine since

have been achieved through a comprehensive review of the
history and development of pharmacopoeias in the UK. The
book, which places the British Pharmacopoeia in its global
context as an instrument of the British Empire, will be of value
to historians of medicine and pharmacy and practitioners of

Modern Greece and photography are almost peers: both are


cultural products of the 1830s, and both actively converse
with modernity. This is the first inter-disciplinary volume
to examine Greeces entanglement with photography. The
book argues that photographs and the photographic process
have been instrumental in the reproduction of national
imagination, in the consolidation of the nation-building
process, and in the dissemination of propaganda. It is argued
that the photographic field constitutes a site of memory and
counter-memory, where social actors stake their discursive,
material, and practical claims.

Concepts of Value in European


Material Culture, 15001900
Edited by Bert De Munck, University of Antwerp,
Belgium and Dries Lyna, Radboud University Nijmegen,
The Netherlands
THE HISTORY OF RETAILING AND CONSUMPTION

The dominance of economic repertories of value is a


relatively new phenomenon, and one which directly
correlates to the steady advent of capitalism in early modern
Europe. This volume brings together scholars with expertise
in a variety of related fields, including economic history, the
history of consumption and material culture, art history, and
the history of collecting, to explore changing concepts of
value from the early modern period to the nineteenth century
and present a new view on the advent of modern economic
practices. Jointly, they fundamentally challenge traditional
historical narratives about the rise of our contemporary
market economy and consumer society.

This is a masterly scholarly monograph that fills an


important gap in the literature on Cosmo Innes and Scottish
antiquarianism and its long afterlife in the nineteenth
century. Situating Innes in an older antiquarian tradition, the
author is able to convincingly demonstrate the importance
of Innes work with primary sources in making him such an
accepted authority of Scottish national history. Marsdens
historiographical discussion of Innes and his contextualisation
of him in the wider Scottish, British and European scenarios
are extremely lucid and helpful.

The antiquary Cosmo Innes (17981874) was a prolific


editor of medieval and early modern documents relating to
Scotlands parliament, legal system, burghs, universities,
aristocratic families and pre-Reformation church. This book,
which analyses Inness work and provides sources, opens a
window onto the ways in which Scottish identity and ideas
about the national past were perceived in Scotland during
the nineteenth century, a period when union with England
was all but unquestioned.

that anatomical and pathological collections are medically
relevant for future research, and are important in the history
of medicine, the cultural history of the body, and the history
of the institutions to which they belong. In considering
the fate of anatomical collections and the importance of

From Popular Liberalism


to National Socialism
Religion, Culture and Politics in
South-Western Germany, 1860s1920s
Oded Heilbronner, Hebrew University of Jerusalem,
Israel
This book investigates the development of what the author
terms popular liberalism, in order to present a more
nuanced understanding of political and cultural patterns
in Germany up to the early 1930s. In particular, the author
offers an explanation for the success of National Socialism
before 1933 in certain regions of South Germany, arguing
that the radical liberal sub-culture was not subsumed by the
Nazi Party, but instead changed its form of representation.
By looking afresh at the relationship between local-regional
identities and national politics, this book makes a major
contribution to the study of the roots of Nazism.

THE HISTORY OF RETAILING AND CONSUMPTION

Covering the period from the publication of Thomas


Chippendales The Gentleman and Cabinet-Makers
Director (1754) to the Great Exhibition (1851), this book
analyses the relationships between producer-retailers and
consumers of furniture and interior design, and explores
what effect dialogues surrounding these transactions had
on the standardisation of furniture production during this
period. This study examines the role of pattern books and
their readers; the construction of taste and style through
negotiation; and daily interactions through showrooms and
other services, to reveal the complexities of English material
culture in a period of industrialisation.

Addressing an important social and political issue which

tracing the local and regional rootedness of individual

summoned to such occasions, the functioning of voluntary

Robert Wilson has delved into the theological thinking


and world that shaped G.A. Selwyn, a leading nineteenthcentury missionary and colonial bishop and architect of
pan-Anglicanism. This provides a rich appreciation of how
Selwyns theology informed his activism and achievements.

www.ashgate.com/isbn/9781409451563

Allan Davidson, St Johns College, Auckland, New Zealand


George Augustus Selwyn (18091878) focuses on Selwyns
theological formation, which places him in the context of
the world of traditional high churchmanship, rather than
the Oxford Movement narrowly conceived. It argues that
his distinctiveness lay in the way in which he was able
to transplant his vision of Anglicanism to the colonial
context. Making use of Selwyns personal correspondence
and papers, as well as his unpublished sermons, the book
analyses his theological formation, his missionary policy,
his role within the formation of the colonial episcopate,
his attitude to conciliar authority and his impact upon the
diocesan revival in England.

Whenever there comes into being something new whether


an institution, a social practice or a concept the question
arises as to its relationship with what went before. This
concept resonates throughout these essays, but is most to
the fore in the chapters on early Hanoverian London and on
Porter versus Foucault.

The Narrative of the Good Death


The Evangelical Deathbed in Victorian England
Mary Riso, Gordon College, USA
ASHGATE METHODIST STUDIES SERIES

Mary Risos carefully researched book makes a significant


contribution to understanding the place of Protestant
Nonconformity in English society. Her work is especially helpful
for showing how much Nonconformist obituaries (a flourishing
genre) partook of conventional middle-class values, yet also
transcended them; how much the various denominations
resembled each other, yet with crucial differences; and how
much Romantic currents affected Nonconformists in some
ways but not in others. It is a fine book.
Mark Noll, University of Notre Dame, USA
A good death was as central to Methodism as conversion
and holiness. Based on an analysis of 1,200 obituaries, this
book contributes to an understanding not only of death but
of the history of Methodist and evangelical Nonconformist
piety, theology, social background and literary expression in
mid-nineteenth-century England, and focuses on the tension in
Nonconformist allegiance to both worldly and spiritual matters.

Modern Economic and Social History encourages the publication of scholarly monographs on aspects of modern economic
and social history. While emphasis is placed on works embodying original research, the series also provides studies of a more
general and thematic nature which offer a reappraisal or critical analysis of major issues of debate.
Economic and social history has been a flourishing subject of scholarly study during recent decades. Not only has the volume
of literature increased enormously but the range of interest in time, space and subject matter has broadened considerably so
that today there are many sub-branches of the subject which have developed considerable status in their own right.

Between 1849 and 1853, shares in nearly 120 public


companies to exploit the booming goldfields of California
and Australia were offered to the British public. The
companies were collectively capitalised at over 15 million,
but in the end only some 1.75 million was raised between
42 of them, with only one company surviving what the
newspapers of the day described as a gold bubble. This
is the first detailed investigation of the British gold bubble
companies and their involvement in the almost simultaneous
gold rushes on both sides of the Pacific.

These two volumes constitute a heavyweight companion


study in every sense of the term except, that is, for the
clear, well-argued and accessible text. Carefully researched,
based on an impressive range of archival sources, and
rooted in detailed knowledge of existing scholarship, Police
Courts makes a valuable and important contribution to a
hitherto under-researched aspect of criminal justice history.
Written by scholars who, intellectually, form a formidable
duo, this exhaustive examination of Scottish police courts,
their activities and their personnel puts down a bench mark
that will be essential reading for historians of England and
Scotland who will need carefully to reflect on the studys
arguments and findings and follow up with new research.
Clive Emsley, Open University, UK
Taking the form of two companion volumes, Police Courts
in Nineteenth-Century Scotland represents the first major
investigation into summary justice in Scottish towns, c.1800
to 1892. Volume 1, with the subtitle Magistrates, Media and
the Masses, provides an institutional, social and cultural
history of the establishment, development and practice of
police courts. It explores their rise, purpose and internal
workings, and how justice was administered and experienced
by those who attended them in a variety of roles.

Money Pits: British Mining


Companies in the Californian
and Australian Gold Rushes
of the 1850s
John Woodland

Drawing upon an impressive range of international sources,


this book explores the late-nineteenth century partnership
between Bradford worsted manufacturers the Briggs brothers
and the German merchant Ernst Posselt, and their investment
in a factory and workers community at Marki, near Warsaw in
Poland. Against a backdrop of political instability and social
upheaval, which dramatically impacted on business after
1905 and particularly during the interwar period of Polands
Second Republic, Sarah Dietz examines the fortunes of an
extraordinary enterprise which has been little researched in
Poland and is largely unknown to British scholars.

David G. Barrie and Susan Broomhall, both at
the University of Western Australia
Taking the form of two companion volumes, Police Courts
in Nineteenth-Century Scotland represents the first major
investigation into summary justice in Scottish towns, c.1800
to 1892. Whereas Volume 1, subtitled Magistrates, Media and
the Masses, analysed the establishment, development and
practice of police courts, Volume 2 explores, through themed
case studies, the role of police courts in moulding cultural
ideas, social behaviours and urban environments in the
nineteenth century.

James Cannon, La Trobe University, Australia


For over a century, the Parisian zone was an extraordinary
place, seen as the dreadful heart of the French underworld, and
filled with dropouts, gypsies, vagrants, ragpickers, pimps and
prostitutes. James Cannons book is a reliable and remarkable
guide into this devastated landscape. A brilliant and strongly
documented study on one of the major myths of Parisian life.
Dominique Kalifa, Panthon-Sorbonne University, France
Since the mid-1970s, the term zone has often been
associated with the post-war housing estates on the outskirts
of large French cities. However, it once referred to a more
circumscribed space: the zone non aedificandi (non-building
zone) which encircled Paris (18401940). This unusual
territory came to occupy a central place in Parisian culture.
By analysing a wider range of sources from the duration of
the zones existence, this study offers a nuanced account of
how the area was perceived by successive generations of
Parisian novelists, poets, songwriters, artists, photographers,
film-makers, politicians and town-planners.

The Reception of Byzantium in


European Culture since 1500
Edited by Przemyslaw Marciniak, University of Silesia,
Poland and Dion C Smythe, Queens University Belfast, UK
This collection of essays uses the idea of reception-theory
and expands it to show how European societies after
Byzantium have responded to both the reality, and the idea
of Byzantine Civilisation. The authors discuss various forms
of Byzantine influence in the post-Byzantine world from
architecture to literature to music to the place of Byzantium
in modern political debates (e.g., in Russia). The intentional
focus of the volume is on those aspects of Byzantine
reception less well-known to English-reading audiences,
which accounts for the inclusion of Bulgarian, Czech, Polish
and Russian perspectives. As a result this book shows
that although so-called Byzantinism is a pan-European
phenomenon, it is made manifest in local/national versions.

Representing Slavery draws on the extensive collections
of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, to offer
unique insights into the histories and legacies of slavery,
the slave trade and abolition from the mid-16th until the
early 20th centuries. The book illustrates and documents a
wide range of objects relating to the slave trade, including
maps, photographs, pamphlets and official publications,
ethnographic documents, newspapers, paintings, prints
and drawings. Ten specially commissioned essays by
leading scholars provide a fascinating historical framework,
demonstrating the scale and brutality of slavery, the form and

St David, UK
This is history at its best its local yet set against the broad
backdrop of national and international developments. It offers
an impressive accumulation of detail without losing sight of the
bigger picture. And its imposing range of contributors, under
the watchful eye of its editors, avoid the usual jumpiness of
such volumes and manage to produce a silky smooth text that
is at once instructive and compelling.
Lord Griffiths of Burry Port,
Superintendent Minister of Wesleys Chapel, UK
During the medieval and early modern periods the Welsh
diocese of St Davids was one of the largest in the country
and the most remote. As this collection makes clear, this
combination of factors resulted in a religious life which was
less regulated by the institutional forces of Church and State.
Addressing key ideas in the development of popular religious
culture and the stubborn continuity of long-lasting religious
practices into the modern era, the volume shows how the
diocese was also a locus for continuing major religious
controversies, especially in the nineteenth century.

A Taste of Progress: Food


at International and World
Exhibitions in the Nineteenth
and Twentieth Centuries
Edited by Nelleke Teughels and Peter Scholliers,
both at Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium
World exhibitions have been widely acknowledged as important
sources for understanding the development of the modern
consumer and urbanized society, yet whilst the function and
purpose of architecture at these major events has been wellstudied, the place of food has received very little attention.
Food stood as a powerful semiotic device for communicating
and maintaining conceptions of identity, history, traditions
and progress, of inclusion and exclusion, making it a valuable
tool for researching the construction of national or corporate
sentiments. Combining recent developments in food studies
and the history of major international exhibitions, this volume
provides a refreshing alternative view of these international and
intercultural spectacles.

These essays present historical case studies on the sounding
worlds of the European past. They explore ways of thinking
about sound historically, and seek to understand how people
have understood and negotiated their relationships with the
sounding world in Europe from the Middle Ages through to
the early twentieth century. They consider, in particular: sound
and music in the later Middle Ages; the politics of sound in the
early modern period; the history of the body and perception
during the Ancien Rgime; the sounds of the city in the
nineteenth century; and sound and colonial rule at the fin de
sicle. Out of these case studies emerge significant themes:
sound, power and identity; sound as a marker of power or
violence; sound, physiology and sensory perception; and
technologies of sound, consumption and meaning.

The German Symphony between


Beethoven and Brahms
The Fall and Rise of a Genre

The core of Andr-Ernest-Modeste Grtrys appeal was his


mastery of song. His melodies were exported out of the
opera house into every corner of French life, serving as
folkloristic tokens of celebration and solidarity. His death in
1813 was one of the sensations of the age, setting off months
of commemorations and revivals of his work. To understand
this singular event, this interdisciplinary study looks back to
Grtrys earliest encounters with the French public during
the 1760s and 1770s, seeking the roots of his reputation in
the reactions of his listeners. The result is not simply an
exploration of the relationship between a musician and his
audiences, but of developments in musical thought and
discursive culture, and of the formation of public opinion
over a period of intense social and political change.

Mendelssohn

Christopher Fifield

Edited by Benedict Taylor, University of Edinburgh, UK

a must-buy for all those interested in 19th century music,


specifically the German classical (not programme) symphony
as it developed in the half-century between the appearance of
Beethovens 9th in 1824 and Brahms 1st in 1876. reads like
a musicological detective story. It is an extremely important
contribution to the understanding of the development of the
Symphony in the nineteenth century.
www.unsungcomposers.com
It was Carl Dahlhaus who coined the phrase dead time
to describe the state of the symphony between Schumann
and Brahms. Christopher Fifield argues that many of
the symphonies dismissed by Dahlhaus made worthy
contributions to the genre. He looks at the non-programmatic
works of the five decades between the mid-1820s and
mid-1870s. Composers who lead to Brahms are frequently
dismissed as epigones of Beethoven, Mendelssohn and
Schumann but by investigating their symphonies, Fifield
reveals their respective brands of originality and in doing
so, shines a light into a half-century of neglected
nineteenth-century German symphonic music.

Music Studies
The Politics of Verdis Cantica
Roberta Montemorra Marvin, University of Iowa, USA
ROYAL MUSICAL ASSOCIATION MONOGRAPHS

This study unpacks the history of Verdis composition from


its creation, performance, and publication in the 1860s
through its appropriation as social and political commentary
and its perception by American broadcast media as a
weapon of art in the mid-twentieth century. The project also
offers the first fully documented study of the performances,
radio broadcast, and filming of the work by conductor Arturo
Toscanini during World War II. In presenting new evidence
about ways in which Verdis music was appropriated by
expatriate Italians and the US government for cross-cultural
propaganda, it addresses the intertwining of Italian and
American culture with regard to art, politics, and history.

Among the major changes that swept through the music


industry during the mid-nineteenth century was how
musical performances were managed and directed. From
a loose control shared between the violin-leader, musical
director and maestro al cembalo to a system of tight and
unified control under a professional conductor-manager.
This process brought with it not only baton conducting in its
modern form, but also higher standards, a new orchestral
lay-out and a more focused rehearsal regime. The key figure
in this process was Michael Costa whose uniquely powerful
position in the operatic, symphonic and choral worlds
provide a fascinating insight into the politics and changing
aesthetics of the Victorian musical landscape.

Roy Johnston and Declan Plummer provide a refreshing


portrait of Belfast in the nineteenth century. Based on an
impressive array of contemporary sources, with deep and
detailed attention especially to contemporary newspapers
they reveal a picture of sustained vitality and development
that justifies Belfasts prominent place the history of

broadly in the British Isles.

Women and the

Edited by Aisling Kenny, Dundalk Institute of Technology,

Brasenose College, University of Oxford, UK
This book bridges a gap in scholarship by foregrounding
the contribution of women to the nineteenth-century Lied.
It consolidates recent research in the genre, and develops an
alternative narrative that embraces an understanding of the
contributions of women. Composers including Fanny Hensel,
Clara Schumann, Pauline Viardot-Garcia and Josephine Lang
are considered with a variety of analytical approaches. In
addition to the focus on the history and theory of the Lied,
chapters explore the cultural and sociological background,
as well as engaging with gender studies, performance and
pedagogical contexts. The range of subject matter reflects
the interdisciplinary nature of current research and the
energy it generates among scholars and performers.

SCIENCE AND THE ARTS SINCE 1750

Series Editor: Richard Woodfield, University of Birmingham, UK

This book is a superb collection shaped by the latest research


on the histories of nature, art, science, and technology.

The aim of this series is to support and promote the study of the history and practice of art historical writing focussing on its
institutional and conceptual foundations, from the past to the present day in all areas and all periods. Besides addressing the
major innovators of the past it also encourages re-thinking ways in which the subject may be written in the future. It ignores
the disciplinary boundaries imposed by the Anglophone expression art history and allows and encourages the full range
of enquiry that encompasses the visual arts in its broadest sense as well as topics falling within archaeology, anthropology,
ethnography, and other specialist disciplines and approaches. It welcomes contributions from young and established scholars
and is aimed at building an expanded audience for what has hitherto been a much specialised topic of investigation. It
complements the work of the Journal of Art Historiography.

Sibel Bozdogan, Harvard University, USA
While European eclecticism is examined as a critical moment
in western art history, little research has been conducted in
the historicist pursuits of late Ottoman architects as they
negotiated the nineteenth centurys vast inventory of styles and
embarked on a revivalist/Orientalist program they identified as
the Ottoman Renaissance. Ersoys book examines the complex
historicist discourse underlying this renaissance through a
close reading of a text conceived as the movements canonizing

Like people and ideas, art objects travel, and they have been
doing so from time immemorial. Surprisingly, art history has
largely neglected to systematically examine these artistic
circulations and their various consequences. By analysing
the traffic of material cultural around the globe, this volume
boosts the study of a key dynamic feature of art worldwide,
characteristically investigated by a modern-day art history
that is increasingly rejuvenating itself by developing a global
perspective in both time and space.
Wilfried van Damme, Leiden University, The Netherlands
Essays in this volume emphasize questions of transcultural
encounters and exchanges as circulations, and provide
an overview of current research on issues of circulation
in relation to global art history and the globalization of art
past and present. They offer a variety of approaches to the
treatment of different periods, regions and objects, surveying
both questions of historiography and methodology and
presenting individual case studies.

STUDIES IN ART HISTORIOGRAPHY

Shortlisted for the 2015 BARS First Book Prize


Offering cultural, historical and literary readings of the
responses to Italian Old Master art by early nineteenthcentury writers, McCue illuminates the important role these
artworks played in shaping the themes that are central to
our understanding of Romanticism. She argues that they
informed the writing of Romantic period authors, enabling
them to forge often surprising connections between Italian
art, the imagination and the periods political, social and
commercial realities.

Without question, the tache (blot, patch, stain) is a central
and recurring motif in nineteenth-century modernist
painting. Manets and the Impressionists rejection of
academic finish produced a surface where the strokes of
paint were presented directly, as patches or blots, then
indirectly as legible signs. Czanne, Seurat, and Signac
painted exclusively with patches or dots. Through a series
of close readings, this book looks at the tache as one of the
most important features in nineteenth-century modernism.
The tache is a potential meeting point between text and
image and a pure trace of the artists body. Even though each
manifestation of tacheism generates its own specific cultural
effects, this book represents the first time a scholar has
looked at tacheism as a hidden continuum within modern art.

Blacks and Blackness in


European Art of the Long
Nineteenth Century
Edited by Adrienne L. Childs, Harvard University, USA
and Susan H. Libby, Rollins College, USA
This excellent volume exemplifies the increasing sophistication
of scholarship around issues of the representation of race,
particularly in the nineteenth century. High art, popular art and
popular performance involving Africans are analysed with due
regard to the complexities of European racial attitudes in an age
of commercialism and empire.
David Bindman, Harvard University, USA
Compelling and troubling, colourful and dark, black figures
served as the quintessential image of difference in nineteenthcentury European art. This collection marks a phase in
the scholarship on images of blacks that moves beyond
undifferentiated binaries like negative and positive that fail
to reveal complexities, contradictions, and ambiguities.

Are art and technology coming into a closer relationship
with nature? Through a selection of innovative readings by
international scholars, this book argues that since 1900 we have
experienced a renewed negotiation of the convergent triangle of
art, technology and nature, analysing its shifting constellations
in post-medieval times. Through this negotiation, art becomes
truly complementary to technology in understanding natures
agencies and may gain an important role in adjusting
technologys present utilitarian hegemony.

For much of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries,


international exhibitions served as a major testing ground
for new ideas in manufacturing, art, and design. This fine
work, with essays by noted scholars from an impressive
array of countries and backgrounds, explores a largely
overlooked aspect of this phenomenon: those exhibitions
held not in the great European or American urban centers,
but on the periphery, in cities and countries outside what is
conventionally regarded as the mainstream. Insightful, wideranging, and innovative in its approaches, it is a seminal study
of the concepts of marginality and locality and their import.
Christopher Long, University of Texas, Austin, USA
Beyond the world fairs in London, Paris or Chicago,
numerous smaller, ambitious exhibitions took place in
provincial cities and towns worldwide. This volume takes
a novel look at the exhibitionary cultures of the period
18401940. By examining the motivations, scope and impact
of lesser-known exhibitions in, for example, Australia,
Japan, Brazil, as well as a number of European countries,
the volume opens up new angles in the way the global
phenomenon of a great exhibition can be examined through
the prism of the regional.

Mining various archives and newspaper repositories, Morse
Jones provides the first full-length study of this remarkable

In recent years, there has been increasing scholarly interest
in the history of museums, academies and major exhibitions.
There has been, however, little sustained interest in the
histories of alternative exhibitions. The present volume
contextualizes eleven case studies to advance overarching
themes among alternative exhibitions from the late-eighteenth
century to the late-twentieth century. These include the issue
of control in the relationship between artist and curator, and
the relationship of alternative exhibitions to the dominant
modes, display structures and cultural ideology.

This book was well produced by the publisher, with a wealth

reassessment of cast iron as the plastic medium of Victorian
modernity. Recommended.
Choice
In the half century after the building of the Crystal Palace
(1851), some architects, engineers, manufacturers and
theorists believed that the fusion of iron and ornament would
reconcile art and technology and create a new, modern
architectural language. This book studies the development
of mechanised architectural ornament in iron in nineteenthcentury architecture, its reception and theorisation, and the
contexts in which it flourished. As such, it offers new ways of
understanding the notion of modernity in Victorian architecture.

This collection of essays by an international group of

their permanent home at the turn of the nineteenth century.
Foreign Artists and Communities in Modern Paris, 18701914
illuminates the expatriate communities these artists formed,
the international networks of which they became a part, their
interaction (or not) with French Modernism, and the impact
they exerted on the art of others-all against the backdrop of the
difficulty to adjust and survive in a foreign country. For those
interested in international artistic exchanges, this book is a
must-read.
Petra ten-Doesschate Chu, Seton Hall University, USA
Sixteen essays by a group of emerging and established
international scholars examine Paris as a thriving
transnational arts community during a period of burgeoning
global immigration. They address the experiences of important
modern artists as well as foreign exiles, immigrants, students
and expatriates within the larger trends of international
mobility. In doing so, they explore the structures that permitted
foreign artists to forge connections within and across national
communities and contribute to the development of a hybrid

Locating American Art is truly ground-breaking in every


sense of the word. With its focus on lesser-known collections,
this compendium of essays by a diverse group of scholars
unearths manifold treasures in unexpected places far from the
metropolis and its powerful institutions. Excitingly eclectic
in its approach, the book embraces artists both canonical
and obscure, celebrated and utterly unsung, and arrays them
on a level playing field. It vividly suggests just how much
there is still to discover by venturing beyond the center and
delving wholeheartedly into the rich ground of the periphery.
Altogether, Locating American Art is an invigorating departure
from business as usual.

Mortons text, the first, major English-language study on


Klinger, is a triumph. This invaluable resource on Wilhelmine
visual culture explores the intersections between Klinger
and German Romantic literary theory, Darwinism, the
unconscious, and criminality. Her wide-ranging, historicallygrounded interdisciplinary approach is a vital addition to
the field and will ignite further research on this complex and
endlessly fascinating artist.
Jay A. Clarke, The Clark, USA
In this book, the first full-length study of its kind in English,
Marsha Morton argues that no artist represented the
shiftfrom tradition to innovation in the Wilhelmine Empire
(1870s1880s) more compellingly than Max Klinger. Morton
makes an interdisciplinary examination of Klingers early
prints and drawings within the context of Wilhelmine
transformations, coming to the conclusion that the
artists work revealed the psychological and biological
underpinnings of modern rational man whose drives and
passions undermined bourgeois constructions of society.

BRITISH ART: HISTORIES AND INTERPRETATIONS


SINCE 1700
Series Editor: David Peters Corbett and Sarah Monks, both at the University of East Anglia, UK
This series exists to publish new and rigorous scholarship of the highest quality on British art after 1700. Proposals will offer
new bodies of research or new interpretations, ideally both, and should demonstrate a clear awareness of the proposed
volumes contribution to current and wider art-historical debates.
We define British art broadly to mean art made in the British Isles or by British artists, and particularly welcome proposals
which address the topic from international or comparative cultural perspectives. We also welcome proposals for intellectually
ambitious studies concerning more localised areas, issues and themes within British art during this period.
Above all, we encourage proposals for books on British art which transcend the descriptive in order to offer a broader
methodological and/or historiographical contribution to the discipline of art history.

At long last, a monograph in English on Max Liebermann, one


of Germanys most important cultural figures of the modern
era. Meticulously researched, this study is especially welcome
for the way in which it weaves together and illuminates
Liebermanns life, art and times in ways that enormously
enrich our understanding of how culture intersected with
politics in a period of fraught and conflicting ideologies.
Maria Makela, California College of the Arts, USA
This is the first English-language examination of the German
impressionist painter Max Liebermann, whose long life and
career spanned nine decades. Through a close reading of
key paintings and a discussion of his many cultural networks
across Germany and throughout Europe, this study by

a pioneer of German modernism.

The Graphic and Social Realism, 18691891

This book offers a compelling and highly original


interpretation of Frederic Leightons art by arguing for a
gothic impulse in the work of this quintessential exponent
of Victorian classicism. In her nuanced account, revealing
the body as a site of deep ambivalence in Leightons work,
Hammerschlag connects his preoccupation with themes of
death, resurrection and revivification to contemporaneous
social anxieties about modernity. Deftly interweaving social
and cultural history, this book demonstrates why Leighton
mattered in his own time and how he continues to do so
in ours. Smart, timely and engagingly written, this book is
essential reading for those interested in British art, cultural
histories of the nineteenth-century and contemporary
aesthetic debates.
Mary Roberts, University of Sydney, Australia
Offering a timely reexamination of the late Victorian
periods most institutionally powerful artist, Keren Rosa
Hammerschlag undertakes close readings of Frederic Lord
Leightons paintings, sculptures, frescos, and drawings, and
situates them in the context of contemporaneous debates
about death and resurrection in theology, archaeology, and
medicine. The author reconfigures what it meant to be not
just a late-Victorian neoclassicist and royal academicism, but

Slavery, Geography and Empire


in Nineteenth-Century Marine
Landscapes of Montreal and
Jamaica
Charmaine A. Nelson, McGill University, Canada
Charmaine A. Nelsons compelling and innovative reading of
British Caribbean marine landscapes in Montreal and Jamaica
(17601820) expands slavery studies and the visual culture of
slavery to consider for the first time a second Middle Passage
between the Caribbean and Canada. She thus expands the
traditional slave trade triangle to now include Great Britain,
the West Indies, and Canada. Her erudite and rich analysis of
visual culture combined with postcolonial feminist theory is a
major contribution to readers in a myriad of fields.
Vivien Green Fryd, Vanderbilt University, USA
Through an examination of marine landscape art including
prints, illustrated travel books and maps, this book
reconnects the two significant British island colonies of
Montreal and Jamaica, sites with profound economic and
military value. Delivering one of the first slavery studies
books to juxtapose temperate and tropical slavery and the
first such comparative work in art history, Nelson explores
how vision and cartographic knowledge translated into visual
authority, which allowed colonizers to civilize the so-called
New World terrains, while belying the oppression of slavery
and indigenous displacement.

for the history of art and design.
ARLIS
This book argues that we need to include the decorative
in the study of sculpture, in order to present a more
accurate account of the practice of sculpture in this period.
Drawing on new archival sources, sculptors and objects,
this is the first sustained study of how and why French
sculptors collaborated with state and private luxury goods
manufacturers. By contesting the false separation of art
from industry, Joness study restores the importance of the
sculptor-manufacturer relationship, and of the decorative, to
the history of sculpture.

The Symbolist Roots


of Modern Art
Edited by Michelle Facos, Indiana University, USA
and Thor J. Mednick, University of Toledo, USA
The essays collected here, which consider artists from
France to Russia and Finland to Greece, argue persuasively
that Symbolist approaches to content, form, and subject
helped to shape twentieth-century Modernism. Well-known
figures such as Kandinsky, Khnopff, Matisse, and Munch
are considered alongside lesser-known artists such as
Fini, Gyzis, Koen, and Vrubel in order to demonstrate that
Symbolist art did not constitute an isolated moment of
wild experimentation, but rather an inspirational point of
departure for twentieth-century developments.

THE HISTORIES OF MATERIAL CULTURE AND COLLECTING,


17001950

This is a beautifully written, wide-ranging study of the central


role that textiles, fashion and costume played in the cultural
history of the Habsburg Empire of the late-nineteenth and
early twentieth centuries.
Julie M. Johnson, University of Texas, San Antonio, USA
Filling a critical gap in Vienna 1900 studies, this book offers a
new reading of fin-de-sicle culture in the Austro-Hungarian
Monarchy by looking at the preoccupation with embroidery,
fabrics, clothing, and fashion. The author resurrects lesser
known critics, practitioners, and curators, while also
discussing the textile interests of better known figures.
Spanning the 50-year life of the Dual Monarchy, this study
uncovers new territory in art history, insists on the crucial
place of women within modernism, and broadens the cultural
history of Habsburg Central Europe.

The Urban Department Store


in America, 18501930
Louisa Iarocci, University of Washington, USA
In the late nineteenth century, the urban department
store arose as a built artifact and as a social institution
in the United States. While the physical building type is
the foundation of this comprehensive architectural study,
Iarocci reaches beyond the analysis of the brick and mortar
to reconsider how the spaces of selling were culturallyproduced spaces, as well as the product of interrelated
economic, social, technological and aesthetic forces.

The Uses of Excess in Visual and


Material Culture, 16002010
Edited by Julia Skelly, Concordia University, Canada
This is a splendid collection of essays dealing with the topic
of excess in material and visual culture. Each contribution is
thought-provoking and, what is more, enjoyable to read. The
volume is cohesive yet far-reaching, effectively demonstrating
how the same subject of excess informs many different
discourses, places and times. Thus compelling connections
are made among such seemingly disparate topics as diamonds
in 17th- and 18th-century British portraits of British nabobs,
elaborate dollhouses collected in Holland, decorative objects
in Pre-Raphaelite paintings, convergences of exile, queerness
and nationalism in avant-garde Europe, and the provocative
excessive works of contemporary figures including artist
Damien Hirst and playwright Sky Gilbert, to name a few.
Heidi Brevik-Zender, University of California, Riverside, USA
Although the idea of excess has often been used to degrade,
many of the essays in this collection demonstrate how it
has also been used as a strategy for self-fashioning and
empowerment, particularly by women and queer subjects.
This volume examines a range of material including
ceramics, paintings, caricatures, interior design and
theatrical performances in various global contexts.
Each case study sheds new light on how excess has been
perceived and constructed, revealing how beliefs about
excess have changed over time.

Women, Femininity and Public
Space in European Visual
Culture, 17891914
Edited by Temma Balducci, Arkansas State University,
USA and Heather Belnap Jensen, Brigham Young
University, USA
This collection of essays presents important new research
that challenges the traditional binary of public and private and
reframes conventional interpretations of gendered space. The
authors promote a more complex understanding of empowered
female subjectivity and agency in Western Europe and North
America in the long nineteenth century. The detailed and
theoretically rigorous studies demonstrate the important roles
of women in both shaping and enacting modernity as public
maternal figures, artists, collectors, art historians, pedestrians,
travelers and consumers of art and fashion.
Alison McQueen, McMaster University, Canada
Focusing on images of or produced by nineteenth-century
European women, this volume explores genteel femininity
as resistant to easy codification vis--vis the public.
Attending to various iterations of the public as space, sphere
and discourse, sixteen essays challenge the false binary
construct that has held the public as the sole preserve of
prosperous men. By considering works in a range of media
by an array of canonical and understudied women artists,
they demonstrate that definitions of both femininity and the
public were mutually defining and constantly shifting.

Zen Paintings in Edo Japan


(16001868)
Playfulness and Freedom in the Artwork of
Hakuin Ekaku and Sengai Gibon
Galit Aviman, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev,
The Hebrew University and Tel-Aviv University, Israel
This book explores the playfulness reflected in the artwork
of two prominent Japanese Zen monk-painters: Hakuin
Ekaku (16851768) and Sengai Gibon (17501837). Aviman
elaborates on the nature of this particular artistic expression
and identifies its sources, focusing on the lives of the monkpainters and their artwork. The author combines a holistic
analysis of the paintings, i.e. as interrelated combination of
text and image, with a contextualization of the works within
their specific environments.

This series of monographs and edited volumes explores the


arts painting and sculpture, drama, dance, architecture,
design, photography, popular culture materials as they
intersect with emergent scientific theories, agendas, and
technologies, from any geographical area from 1750 to now. It
welcomes studies on the aesthetic conditioning of scientists
as well as those that explore the influence of technologies,
medicine, and science on visual culture either in a specific
cultural or social context or through webs of influence that
cross national, political, or imperial boundaries. Projects
additionally might address philosophies of mind, brain,
and body that changed the way visuality and aesthetic
theory were understood or how new theories can be used to
reinterpret the past.
