An A-Z of Jane Austen

Michael Greaney, Lancaster University, UK

This eighth edition is an authoritative introduction to the study of the novel at undergraduate level, providing a complete guide to the form, history, analysis and critical approaches to the novel. Also featuring chapter summaries, a glossary of terms, a timeline of the novel, guides to further reading, and discussion questions, the book helps students navigate the text and master the topics covered. Updates to this edition include: more sub-genres of the novel and coverage of disability studies and apartheid literature; and a whole new chapter on how the canon has expanded to cover the interests of contemporary literature students.

Jane Austen's works have enchanted readers for centuries and this playful book provides Austen enthusiasts with new insights into the much-loved writer's way with words. Using a lively A-Z structure, it provides fresh angles on familiar Austen themes (D is for dance; M is for matchmaking), casts light on under-examined corners of her imagination (L is for little; S is for servant), and shows how current social and cultural concerns are reshaping our understanding of her work (Q is for queer; W is for West Indies). Through this enchanting approach, Greaney shows how the tiniest linguistic detail can enrich our understandings of this iconic writer.

Apocalyptic Ruin and Everyday Wonder in Don DeLillo’s America Michael Naas, DePaul University, USA

In a fresh, engaging study of 'last things' – death, mourning, the decline of the American empire, but also apocalypse and the end of the world – this book shows that Don DeLillo has created meaning by juxtaposing last things with their doubles or 'first things': like the wonder of language or the radiance of everyday events. From Americana (1971) up through The Silence (2020), Naas shows how the works of Don DeLillo have been there for more than half a century to remind us of one simple and yet profound truth – nothing lasts forever.

Memory and the Built Environment in 20th-Century American Literature

A Reading and Analysis of Spatial Forms Alice Levick, University of Exeter, UK Focusing on the relationship between processes of demolition and restoration as they have shaped the modern built environment, and the processes by which memory is constructed, hidden, or remade in the literary text, this book explores the ways in which history becomes entangled with the urban space in which it plays out. With reference to the works of D.J. Waldie, Joan Didion, Hisaye Yamamoto, Raymond Chandler, Marshall Berman, Gil Cuadros, Paule Marshall, L. J. Davis and Paula Fox, this book unpacks how time becomes visible in Los Angeles, Sacramento, Lakewood and New York in the decades just before and after the Second World War.

Cultural Antagonism and the Crisis of Reality in Latin America Horacio Legrás, University of California, Irvine, USA

Legrás explores the literary and humanist questions of gender, race, ethnicity and contradictions of capitalist development that belie colonialist homogenization in reconfiguring the sense of the real in Latin America. Covering four key geographical areas, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central America and the Andes, every chapter delves into a question that has been central to the humanities in the last 20 years: Indigenous worldviews, gender, race, neo-liberalism and visual culture. Legrás illuminates these issues with a thorough theoretical consideration of the ways in which new identities disrupt the imaginary stability of social formations.

The Presidents of American Fiction

Fashioning the U.S. Political Imagination Michael J. Blouin, Milligan University, USA The Presidents of American Fiction surveys the evolution of the Commander in Chief within the American imagination. From James Fenimore Cooper to Philip Roth, major American authors have shaped – and been shaped by – the idea of the Presidency. At a moment when popular understandings of the Presidency are being radically rewritten, and readers are reimagining the office and its holder in fundamental ways, this book questions how Presidents have long functioned as characters in the nation's most influential stories, while enhancing our appreciation of American literature’s inextricable link with American politics.

Hyperbolic Realism

A Wild Reading of Pynchon's and Bolaño's Late Maximalist Fiction Samir Sellami, Hamburg Institute for Social Research, Germany What comes after postmodernism in literature? Hyperbolic Realism engages the contradiction that while it remains impossible to present a full picture of the world, assessing reality from a planetary perspective seems now more than ever an ethical obligation for contemporary literature. It examines the hyperbolic forms and features of Thomas Pynchon's Against the Day and Roberto Bolaño's 2666 – their discursive and material abundance, excessive fictionality, close intertwining of fantastic and historical genres, narrative doubt and spiraling uncertainty – which are deployed not as an escape from, but a plunge into reality.

Imagining the Plains of Latin America An Ecocritical Study

Axel Pérez Trujillo Diniz, Durham University, UK From the Pampas lowlands of Argentina, Uruguay and Brazil to the Altiplano plateau that stretches between Chile and Peru, the plains of Latin America have haunted the literature and culture of the continent. Bringing these landscapes into focus as a major subject of Latin American culture, this book outlines innovative new ecocritcial readings of canonical literary texts from the 19th century to the present. Tracing these natural landscapes across national borders, the book develops new transnational understandings of Hispanic culture in South America and expands the scope of the contemporary environmental humanities.

Politics and Literature at the Dawn of World War II

James A. W. Heffernan, Dartmouth College, USA The first comprehensive study of how the outbreak of the Second World War shaped the literary work of American, English, and European writers during the first years of the war, before its outcome was known, this book shows how the imminence and outbreak of the Second World War ignited the imaginations of writers ranging from Ernest Hemingway, W.H. Auden, and James Joyce to Bertolt Brecht, Evelyn Waugh, Henry Green, and Irène Némirovsky.

'Invisible Music', Prose and the Art of Canorography

From her unique standpoint as singer-songwriterscholar, Polly Paulusma examines the influences of Carter’s 1960s folk singing, unknown until now, on her prose writing. Recent critical attention has focused on Carter’s relationship with folk/fairy tales, but this book uses a newly available archive containing Carter’s folk song notes, books, LPs and recordings to change the debate, proving Carter performed folk songs. Placing this archive alongside the album sleeve notes Carter wrote and her diaries and essays, it reimagines Carter’s prose as a vehicle for the singing voice, and reveals a writing style imbued with ‘songfulness’ informed by her singing praxis.

Kitchen Sink Aesthetics Simon Lee

Centering on the British kitchen sink realism movement of the late 1950s and early 1960s, specifically its documentation of the built environment’s influence on class consciousness, this book highlights the settings of a variety of novels, plays, and films, offering new ways of thinking about how spatial representation in cultural production sustains or intervenes in the process of social stratification.

Ian Fleming and the Politics of Ambivalence Ian Kinane, University of Roehampton, UK

Previously considered an avowed nationalist, this book explores how Ian Fleming’s writing and his representational politics contain a resistance to imperial rhetoric. Through an examination of Fleming’s Jamaica-set novels Live and Let Die, Dr No, The Man with the Golden Gun, his short stories and the film adaptations, Ian Kinane reveals Fleming's ambivalence to British decolonisation and to wider Anglo-Caribbean relations. Offering crucial insight into the public imagination during the birth of modern British multiculturalism, Kinane connects the novels to contemporary conservative concerns regarding migration and the ways that the misrepresentation of cultures have led to fraught global geo-political relations.

L I T E R A R Y S T U D I E S – British & Irish Literature / Poetry

Kazuo Ishiguro’s Gestural Poetics

Peter Sloane, University of Lincoln, UK Kazuo Ishiguro’s Gestural Poetics explores some of the more radical thematic and formal aspects of the writing of this most distinctive of novelists. In readings of his exploration of empathy and the ethics of reading the posthuman, post-WWII politics and anti-Americanism, the deconstruction of the possibility of ‘history’, and the Kafka-esque psychogeographies of his fictional spaces, Peter Sloane places Ishiguro in the context of a late modernist aesthetic, one that is informed by the intervening rise and fall of the postmodern.

Letters and Lives of the Tennyson Women

Marion Sherwood, Member of the Tennyson Society Executive Committee & Rosalind Boyce, Honorary Secretary of the Tennyson Society Publications Board Contradicting perceptions of women as mere footnotes in Tennyson's career, this book examines the influence of his strong-minded female forebears on the young poet, revealing that the women in Tennyson’s family circle were prolific and engaging correspondents. Focusing on the letters and lives of four women – their letters, preserved in archives in Lincoln and for the most part unpublished, cast a unique light on the Tennyson family’s interrelationships and the times in which they lived.

Irish Children’s Literature and the Poetics of Memory

Rebecca Long, Trinity College Dublin, Ireland Focusing on mythological narratives that influence Irish children’s literature, this book examines the connections between landscape, time and identity, positing that myth and the language of myth offer the opportunity to engage with Ireland’s culture and heritage. Examining texts published between 1892 (when there was an escalation of the cultural pursuit of Irish independence) and 2016 (which marked the centenary of the Easter 1916 rebellion against English rule), it draws on work from a variety of writers such as W. B. Yeats and lesser-known writers like Una Kelly to demonstrate the reciprocity that exists between imagination, memory, and childhood experiences.

Language at the Boundaries

Philosophy, Literature, and the Poetics of Culture Peter Carravetta, Stony Brook University, USA Seeking to chart the poetic act in a period not so much hostile as indifferent to poetry, Language at the Boundaries outlines spaces where poetry and poetics emerge in migration, translation, world literature, canon formation and the history of science and technology. Peter Carravetta consolidates historical epistemological positions that have accrued over the last several decades and unpacks differences in those positions – juxtaposing Vico with Heidegger and applying the approaches of translation studies, decolonization, indigeneity, critical race theory and gender studies, among others. What emerges is a defense and theory of poetics in the contemporary world, engaging the topic in a dialectic mode and seeking grounds of agreement.

Germany from the Outside

Rethinking German Cultural History in an Age of Displacement Edited by Laurie Ruth Johnson, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA The development of the German nation-state relied on the idea of a homogeneous German culture with a strong normative function. As a consequence, histories of German culture and literature often represent certain core values with which every “German” must identify. Emphasizing current issues of migration, displacement, systemic injustice, and belonging, the essays in this volume explore new opportunities for understanding and shaping community at a time when many are questioning the ability of cultural practices to effect structural change. Located at the nexus of cultural, political, historiographical, and philosophical discourses, this volume studies heterogeneous influences on Germany.

What are the mechanisms that make one bestselling author famous well beyond her lifetime while another sinks without trace while still alive? Authors and the World traces how four core modes of authorship have developed and inflect one another in the particular contexts of late 20th- and early 21st-century Germany. It provides not just a radically new approach to German literary history but a new paradigm for thinking about how literary authorship differs by place and draws in different people from across the Western world.

The Science of Berlin Dada

Grotesque Visions examines the Berlin Dada artists—such as Salomo Friedländer (aka Mynona), Til Brugman, and Hannah Höch—who criticized, satirized, and subverted, through their use of the artistic grotesque, the scientific practices and evidentiary claims of late-19th- and early-20th-century scientists. Demonstrating how pathologists, anthropologists, sexologists, and medical scientists went to excessive measures to create professional and public environments in which they could present their research in a seemingly unambiguous way, this volume shows how the practices and responses of Dada artists challenged these forms of supposed scientific objectivity.

African Literatures as World Literature

Edited by Alexander Fyfe, American University of Beirut, Lebanon & Madhu Krishnan, University of Bristol, UK Focusing on a variety of geographic, historical and linguistic contexts, the essays in this volume seek answers to the following questions about African literatures: What are the topographies of 'the world' in different literary texts and traditions? What are that world’s limits, boundaries and possibilities? How do questions of literary form – realism, oral epic, lyric poetry – affect the presentation of worldliness? What are the material networks of circulation that allow African literatures to become world literature? African literatures, it emerges, do important theoretical work that speaks to the very core of world literary studies today.

Feminism as World Literature

Edited by Robin Truth Goodman, Florida State University, USA The conventional lineage of world literature starts with Goethe and moves through Marx, Said, Moretti and Damrosch, among others. What if there is another way to trace the lineage starting with Beauvoir and moving through Arendt, Kristeva and Spivak? What ideas and issues get left out of the current foundations that have institutionalized world literature, and what can be added, challenged or changed with this tweaking of the referential terminology? In this volume, ideas built into world literature and its criticism are viewed through feminist framings, including the environment, technology, work, race, religion, violence and media.

World Literature and the Question of Genre in Colonial India Poetry, Drama, and Print Culture 1790-1890

Kedar Arun Kulkarni, Flame University, India The book describes the way Marathi literary culture, entrenched in performative modes of production and reception, especially balladry and epic storytelling, saw the germination of a robust, script-centric dramatic culture, owing to colonial networks of literary exchange and the newfound wide availability of print technology. It situates Marathi literature within contemporary world literature studies and critiques “eurochronology”— the perceived backwardness of colonial and postcolonial locales when compared with literatures produced in Euro-American metropoles. It demonstrates that literary cultures in colonized locales converged with and participated fully in key defining moments of world literature, but also diverged from them to create, simultaneously, a unique literary modernity.

Literature and Film from East Europe’s Forgotten "Second World" Essays of Invitation

Gordana P. Crnkovic, University of Washington, USA

An unprecedented engagement with the Spanish Civil War as a point of departure and of compounding return for various writers and artists producing Jewish imaginaries who were involved in the fight against fascism in Spain in the late 1930s, as well as their successors. These essays demonstrate the importance that this event – the preamble to the Second World War and the Shoah – has had for the Jewish people and Jewish cultural production through the 20th century and into the 21st. The essays analyse journalism, literature and music, among other modes, from creators across the globe – including from Germany, Argentina, Canada and Mexico.

Eastern Europe of the socialist era may seem distant and unreal, almost mythical, with some of its countries— Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia—no longer on the map. This largely forgotten “Second World” may appear no more than a historical oddity. The masterpieces of literature and cinema of this era, by the authors formed in it and working in its aftermath, however, surprise with their contemporary resonance and relevance, their distinctiveness and freshness. In lively and jargon free prose, Gordana P. Crnkovic creates a path to a number of these works and shows how they changed lives.

The Great Dismissal

Memoir of the Cultural Demolition Derby, 2015-22 Henry Sussman, Rutgers University, USA Longtime scholar and critic Henry Sussman deploys anecdote, reportage, memoir, and a pilgrimage to major intellectual stops in his trajectory of marshaling the disbelief and dismay prompted by the rise of anti-intellectualism in recent decades and reflected most disturbingly in Donald Trump’s ascension to the US presidency. In retracing his own intellectual and experiential steps, Sussman revisits his personal list of inspirations, including Walter Benjamin, Jacques Derrida, Douglas R. Hofstadter, and J. Hillis Miller. The result is an intellectual meditation on ‘the great dismissal,’ in public and political life, of venerable and vital humanistic traditions, ethics, and ways of thinking.

Incorporating academic writing and original creative work from established and emerging scholars around the globe, these essays approach love through fields across the humanities and social sciences – including literary studies, sociology, psychology, philosophy and gender studies – providing a renewed investigation of a history of ideas that often encloses itself with the confines of Western philosophy.

Love and the Politics of Care

Edited by Stanislava Dikova, University of Essex, UK, Wendy McMahon, University of East Anglia, UK & Jordan Savage, University of Essex, UK Love and the Politics of Care examines the concept of love and its intersections with the practice of care and its psychic, familial, historical, and institutional distortions in the context of a neoliberal political system. Care as a form of work is a central line of inquiry, positioning care in its professional contexts and examining the larger institutional conditions within which it functions, often unnoticed, in spaces such as the theatre hall, the prison complex, the urban landscape, and the family home. Authors explore where love is useful, where love is difficult and where we might hope to develop loving practices.

Adorno, Aesthetics, Dissonance On Dialectics in Modernity

William S. Allen, University of Southampton, UK Adorno’s aesthetics is one of the most important philosophical analyses of the 20th century. This book provides the first study of how Adorno’s thinking of aesthetics developed and how different dimensions came together to make it uniquely powerful. Principal among these dimensions is his intense interest in music and his concomitant materialist approach. Adorno’s thinking comes to broaden the understanding of aesthetics to include the sphere of sensuality, and in doing so transforms both aesthetics and dialectics through a notion of dissonance, which will in turn have substantial implications for the relation of his thinking to praxis.

Understanding Kristeva, Understanding Modernism Edited by Maria Margaroni

Julia Kristeva has revolutionized the study of modernism by developing a theoretical approach that is uniquely attuned to the dynamic interplay between, on the one hand, linguistic and formal experimentation, and, on the other hand, subjective crisis and socio-political upheaval. Understanding Kristeva, Understanding Modernism brings together essays that take up the threads in Kristeva’s analyses of the avant-garde, offering an appreciation of her overall contribution, the intellectual and political horizon within which she has produced her seminal works as well as of the blind spots that need to be acknowledged in any contemporary examination of her insights.

Ezra Pound's Washington Cantos and the Struggle for Light Alec Marsh, Muhlenberg College, USA

Through an in-depth political reading of the later Cantos – Rock-Drill and Thrones – this book reveals the ways in which Ezra Pound integrated into his poetry themes and ideas that remain central to American far-right ideology to this day: state’s rights, segregation, the usurpation of the Constitution by the Supreme Court, history as racial struggle.

The Place and the Writer

International Intersections of Teacher Lore and Creative Writing Pedagogy Edited by Marshall Moore, Falmouth University, UK & Sam Meekings, Northwestern University in Qatar, Qatar Whilst it is agreed that the combined experience of authors throughout the ages offers a wealth of valuable information about how the practice of writing actually works, such lore can also be problematic for students and practitioners within the academic. Lore can be inherently addictive, indelible in abandoning processes that do not work and is also a US-centric endeavor. In order to take a nuanced approach to the use and limitations of lore, The Place and the Writer offers a global perspective on creative writing pedagogy and explores the perspectives of different cultures to writing and creativity.

Culture and Medicine

Critical Readings in the Health and Medical Humanities Edited by Rishi Goyal, Columbia University, USA & Arden Hegele, Columbia University, USA Gathering voices from diverse areas including literary studies, medical anthropology, neurology, disability studies and emergency medicine, this books explores how medico-scientific knowledge is constructed, negotiated and circulated as cultural practice. While biomedicine often aspires to be a positivist science, it is in constant negotiation with other domains of culture. This book interrogates how medicoscientific knowledge shapes a set of normative cultural practices that define the limits of health and the body, from the body’s place and trajectory in the world, to how bodies relate to one another, to what counts as health and illness.

Essays on Habitat, Culture and Environment

Susan Visvanathan, CSSS/SSS JNU, New Delhi, India This book brings forward the living practices of communities which are interlocked in time and space, where work and their cultures become intermeshed in different ways. As the world becomes increasingly vulnerable to climate change, organic farming, the search for water, the protection of lands and people from floods, are all real indexes of how urgent the task of recording people’s life worlds has become. It explores how human beings remember the past, while creating new niches for the survival of their families and communities. It brings the pleasures of many cultures in conversation with one another, where dissonances may be accommodated.

Precarity in Contemporary Literature and Culture

Edited by Emily J. Hogg & Peter Simonsen, University of Southern Denmark, Denmark The contemporary moment is characterized by precarity. Using literary and cultural texts to develop a nuanced and critical exploration of the concept of precarity that emphasizes its contemporary manifestations, this book examines the vulnerabilities behind our anxious existence: unemployment, environmental crisis, temporary contracts and patterns of migration, all whilst attending to its historical roots and existential dimensions. With reference to a wide range of forms such as contemporary, realist, science fiction and modernist novels, film, theatre, and the lyric poem, this book goes beyond one national context to consider works from the US, UK, Germany and South Africa.

The Essay At the Limits Poetics, Politics and Form

Edited by Mario Aquilina, University of Malta, Malta In the hands of such writers as Rebecca Solnit, Claudia Rankine and Zadie Smith the essay has reemerged as a powerful literary form for a fractious 21st-century culture. The Essay at the Limits brings together leading scholars to explore the poetics, history and future of the form. Alongside the new forms and voices that have emerged in the 21st century essay, the book links these back to a longer history of the essay and its theorisation from the Romantics to modern writers like Woolf and Coetzee and its influence on other cultural forms from the novel to music and film.

Marilynne Robinson's Worldly Gospel

A Philosophical Account of her Christian Vision Ryan S. Kemp, Wheaton College, USA & Jordan M. Rodgers, King's College, Wilkes-Barre, USA An in-depth philosophical exploration of Marilynne Robinson’s work – from Gilead to her extensive non-fiction writing – this book reads Robinson’s theology as articulating a compelling response to the claim that Christianity is an otherworldly religion whose adherents seek through it to escape the misfortunes of this life. The authors argue that her work challenges the modern atheistic tradition, dating back to Friedrich Nietzsche, to present a unique form of contemporary faith that seeks to affirm the world rather than deny its claims.

The Racist Fantasy

Unconscious Roots of Hatred Todd McGowan, University of Vermont, USA The Racist Fantasy explores the psychic basis for the racism that appears so conspicuously throughout modern history. Racism persists because it ties into an unconscious fantasy structure for those invested in it. The fundamental racist fantasy positions the racial other as a figure who blocks the enjoyment of the racist. This fantasy takes root under capitalism as a way of explaining the failures and disappointments that result from the relationship to the commodity. To struggle against racism, one must work to dislodge the fantasy structure and the capitalist relations that require it. This is the project of the book.

The Art of Translation in Light of Bakhtin's Re-accentuation Edited by Slav Gratchev, Marshall University, USA & Margarita Marinova, Christopher Newport University, USA

Although Mikhail Bakhtin’s study of the novel does not focus in any systematic way on the role that translation plays in the processes of novelistic creation and dissemination, when he does broach the topic he grants translation a disproportionately significant role in the emergence and constitution of literature. The contributors to this volume, from the US, Hong Kong, Finland, Japan, Spain, Italy, Bangladesh, and Belgium, bring their own polyphonic experiences with the theory and practice of translation to the discussion of Bakhtin’s ideas about this topic, in order to illuminate their relevance to translation studies today.

Uneasy Translations

Self, Experience and Indian Literature Rita Kothari, Ashoka University, India This book interweaves the personal journey of an academic into reflections around self, language and translation—with an eye upon the intangibly available category of experience. It dwells on quieter modes of being political— of making knowledge democratic, of seeing gendered language in the every day. Through both a poignant voice and rigorous questions, Kothari asks what it is to live and teach in India as a woman, as a multilingual researcher, as both a subject and rebel of the discipline of English.

King Lear: Language and Writing

Jean E. Howard, Columbia University, USA This guide argues that King Lear's elemental power springs from its language, which is at once simple, relentless, and riddling, and from its full-blown double plot that multiplies unbearably both the follies and the pain of its protagonists. It also explores recent critical approaches to the play and its theatre history and includes practical ‘how to’ content on the study skills necessary to succeed as a critical thinker and writer.

Shakespeare on Prejudice

'Scorns and Mislike' in Shakespeare's Plays B. J. Sokol, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK How are various forms of prejudice portrayed in the works of Shakespeare and to what extent does Shakespeare differ from his contemporaries in their portrayal? What can we learn about Shakespeare's times and our own through a close reading of prejudice depicted in his plays? Through detailed analysis of his plays, comparison with the works of other Elizabethan writers and a consideration of Shakespeare's social environment, the study provides an appreciation of how Shakespeare represents prejudice against education, the arts, peace, ‘strangers’ or outsiders, and sexual love.

Interruptions in Early Modern English Drama Michael M. Wagoner, United States Naval Academy, USA

This is the first full-length study to analyse interruption as a dramatic form in the works of William Shakespeare, Ben Jonson and John Fletcher. Through close analysis of dialogue and punctuation, stage directions, such as exists, entrances and music, and conventions of plot in early modern play texts, Michael Wagoner reveals how interruptions are integral to shaping characterisation, building interiority and indicative of aspects of authorial style. From the Ghost’s appearance in Hamlet to Celia’s frightful speech in Volpone, interruptions are an overlooked linguistic and dramatic form that delineates the balance of power with a scene.

Money and Magic in Early Modern Drama

Edited by David Hawkes, Arizona State University, USA This volume considers three ideological forces in early modern England: money, magic and the theatre. The invisible nature of money’s power struck many contemporaries as magical and contributed to the hysteria behind witch-hunts. Theatre, simultaneously, emerged as a medium well-suited to representing the powers of magic. Part One considers an array of figures ranging from Plautus through John Lyly to Christopher Marlowe, while remaining focused on the nexus of money and magic. Part Two concentrates on Shakespeare, whose diagnosis of the relations between finance, witchcraft and the stage is explored in Timon of Athens, The Tempest and A Winter’s Tale.

Staging Britain's Past

Pre-Roman Britain in Early Modern Drama Kim Gilchrist, Cardiff University, UK The first study of the early modern performance of Britain's pre-Roman history. Shakespeare’s contemporaries were discovering that the Trojan exile Brute and his descendants, once widely believed as proof of glorious ancient origins, were a mischievous medieval invention. Offering a comprehensive account of the extraordinary theatrical tradition that emerged from these Brutan histories and the reasons for that tradition’s disappearance, this study gathers all known evidence of the plays, pageants and masques portraying Britain’s ancient rulers, from Gorboduc’s powerful invocation of history to Cymbeline’s elegiac erosion of all notions of historical truth.

Fiona Ritchie, McGill University, Montreal, Canada

Siblings Sarah Siddons (1755-1831) and John Philip Kemble (1757-1823) were the most famous British actors of the late-18th and early-19th centuries and were known for their work with Shakespeare. This book examines their careers on the London stage, and considers their work together (including performances of King John, Coriolanus and Macbeth). The actors’ careers were also marked by political upheaval and two major Shakespeare scandals: the staging of Vortigern (a fake Shakespearean play) in 1796 and the Old Price Riots of 1809 (during which the audience challenged Siddons’s and Kemble’s perceived attempts to control Shakespeare).

Stroller

Amanda Parrish Morgan, Fairfield University, USA

Dolls commonly serve as a tool to teach mothering to young girls, but more often they are avatars of the idealized feminine self. (The word "doll" even acts as shorthand for a desirable woman.) They instruct girls what to strive for in society, reinforcing dominant patriarchal, heteronormative, white views around class, bodies, history, and celebrity, in insidious ways. By analyzing dolls from 17th century Japanese Hinamatsuri festivals, to the ‘80s American Girl Dolls, and even to today’s bitmoji, Doll reveals how the objects society encourages us to play with as girls shape the women we become.

Among the many things expectant parents are told to buy, none is a more visible symbol of status and parenting philosophy than a stroller. Although its association with wealth dates back to the invention of the first pram in the 1700s, in recent decades, four-figure strollers have become not just status symbols but cultural identifiers. From sleek jogging strollers for serious athletes and impossibly compact travel strollers for international travel to antistroller evangelists, all of these attitudes reveal how our differing beliefs of how parents and children ought to move through the world.
