This volume of Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture explores the revolutions in culture, politics, and art that took place throughout the eighteenth century. The first section of the book focuses on the role that women played in both the formation and the expression of culture, whether as manufacturers or consumers. The second group of essays studies images of the body in popular drama, literature, and art, while the third is devoted to politics and religion, dealing specifically with the questions of ethnicity and loyalty brought up by rebellion and revolution. The book concludes with two essays about landscape art and its implications for legitimizing slavery and constructing the colonial fantasy.
