about this item

Scholars of literature, culture, and history who specialize in transatlantic American studies consider the American Renaissance revisited, cultural authority and transatlantic aesthetics, broadening the genteel circle: race and gender, and the medium is the message: transatlantic media networks. Among the topics are genteel pragmatism in 19th-century America and Great Britain, of heroes and mockingbirds: transatlantic translations and the struggle between "high" and "low" cultures in 19th-century America, romantic folk culture and The Souls of Black Folk: framing the beginnings of African-American culture studies in cross-Atlantic traveling concepts, Byronic heroines and Darwinian types: southern women's (post-)bellum identity construction, and transatlantic politics as serial networks in the German-American city mystery novel 1850-55.
