The formation of a national audience in Italy, 1750-1890 : readers and spectators of Italian culture( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'The late eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries witness significant advancement in the production and, crucially, the consumption of culture in Italy. During the long process towards and beyond Italy becoming a nation-state in 1861, new modes of writing and performing - the novel, the self-help manual, theatrical improvisation - develop in response to new practices and technologies of production and distribution. Key to the emergence of an inclusive national audience in Italy is, however, the audience itself. A wide and varied body of consumers of culture, animated by the notion of an Italian national cultural identity, create in this period an increasingly complex demand for different cultural products. This body is energized by the wider access to education and to the Italian language brought about by educational reforms, by growing urbanization, by enhanced social mobility, and by transcultural connections across European borders. This book investigates this process, analyzing the ways in which authors, composers, publishers, performers, journalists, and editors engage with the anxieties and aspirations of their diverse audiences. Fourteen essays by specialists in the field, exploring individual contexts and cases, demonstrate how interests related to gender, social class, cultural background and practices of reading and spectatorship, exert determining influence upon the production of culture in this period. They describe how women, men, and children from across the social and regional strata of the emerging nation contribute incrementally but actively to the idea and the growing reality of an Italian national cultural life. They show that from newspapers to salon performances, from letters to treatises in social science, from popular novels to literary criticism, from philosophical discussions to opera theaters, there is evidence in Italy in this period of unprecedented participation, crossing academic and popular cultures, in the formation of a national audience in Italy. This cultural transformation later produces the mass culture in Italy which underpins the major movements of the twentieth century and which undergoes new challenges and reformulations in the Italy we know today.'--

Inventing an American political tradition : how John Locke became "America's philosopher" by Claire Rydell Arcenas( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Inventing an American Political Tradition elucidates the trans-Atlantic influence of the seventeenth-century English philosopher John Locke on American thought and culture from before the American Revolution through the Civil Rights Movement. It tells the story of how and why Americans transformed Locke, best known to them in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries as an epistemologist of the Scientific Revolution, into "America's Philosopher" in the twentieth century--the supposed founder in his Second Treatise of a distinctly American liberal democratic political tradition resting on property rights, individual liberty, freedom of religious practice, and representative government. This dissertation is the first study of Locke's place in American intellectual and political life across multiple centuries
