Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture

Volume 36

This new volume continues the tradition of Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture of publishing innovative interdisciplinary scholarship on the interpretive edge. Undertaking critical investigation of eighteenth-century ideas and practices, it discusses the possibilities and limitations of print; royal portraiture, the sentimental novel, and botanical classification through the categories of gender; the European experience in the 1700s; and change over time in the realms of music, architecture, and literature from the eighteenth century to the nineteenth.
