The Frankenstein of 1790 and other lost chapters from revolutionary France by Julia Douthwaite Viglione( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and French and held by 595 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The French Revolution brings to mind violent mobs, the guillotine, and Madame Defarge, but it was also a publishing revolution. Douthwaite explores how the works within this corpus announced the new shapes of literature to come and reveals that vestiges of these stories can be found in novels by the likes of Mary Shelley
Exotic women : literary heroines and cultural strategies in Ancien Régime France by Julia Douthwaite Viglione( Book )

7 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 371 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Exotic Women, Julia V. Douthwaite describes the interrelated representations of cultural and sexual difference in key French works of the late seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The heroines of this study are foreign women, brought to France through no will of their own and forced into the margins of a new society. Douthwaite contends that their experience resonates with larger cultural beliefs about exotic and primitive peoples in ancien regime France and illuminates some of the blind spots in Enlightenment thought." "Throughout this study, Douthwaite juxtaposes male- and female-authored texts in order to investigate the ways in which the exotic is used to affirm or interrogate French cultural norms. By studying relatively canonical texts and popular novels by women in conjunction with travel writings and early book illustrations, Douthwaite demonstrates that literary scenarios of cultural conflict often duplicate the conflicts in gender relations." "Informed by recent writing on colonialism and feminist theory, Exotic Women addresses a variety of controversial issues. These include: the problematic distribution of power and voice in European fictions of exoticism; the social and ethnocentric limitations of Enlightenment political philosophy; and the essentialist principles which hide behind Enlightenment claims of cultural relativism. Exotic Women views the exotic heroine not just as an element in eighteenth-century literature, but as a highly charged symbol--one capable of exposing the underside of optimistic Enlightenment discourse." "This fascinating and original work will be of interest to students and scholars of women's studies, cultural studies, French literature, and eighteenth-century studies."--Jacket
The interdisciplinary century : tensions and convergences in eighteenth-century art, history and literature by Julia Douthwaite Viglione( Book )

9 editions published in 2005 in English and Multiple languages and held by 229 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Judging by most contemporary accounts, the virtues of cross-disciplinary research, teaching and scholarship are above reproach. Conference organisers announce with pride that 'l'interdisciplinarité a porté ses fruits'; governments and universities sponsor ever-growing numbers of interdisciplinary research teams. Such activity is especially pertinent to eighteenth-century studies. The Republic of Letters inspired scholars, scientists, artists, and writers to engage in spirited, multilingual and long-term correspondence with colleagues throughout Europe. As many contributors to this timely and provocative volume argue, a certain kind of interdisciplinarity is required for any consideration of eighteenth-century topics.But what impact has this enthusiasm for interdisciplinarity had on our understanding of objects, monuments, texts, and events of the past? Born of an intense series of debates, this volume takes on current controversies with unflinching honesty. Contributors address questions of theory and practice. Does interdisciplinary investigation carry any meaningful challenge to the disciplines themselves, or are we merely trading one kind of evidence for another? What institutional constraints work against such research and teaching? Is interdisciplinarity a pressing preoccupation of scholars in France and the UK, as it is in the US?The introduction provides a critical history of interdisciplinarity and outlines the key tensions of university life as experienced by students and scholars in the US, the UK and France. Position papers provide state-of-the-field analyses - some invigorating or even utopian, others darkly brooding. Case studies present examples of contemporary work, showing what might happen when a literary scholar confronts a pornographer's battles, when an art historian takes on an 'undisciplined' object‚ or, perhaps most intriguing, when a practising attorney evaluates 'legal' approaches to literature
Rousseau and dignity : art serving humanity( Book )

4 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rousseau and Dignity: Art Serving Humanity is a richly illustrated volume relating a series of events--a photography exhibit, lectures, commentary, and audience reactions by people ages seven to ninety-two--held in the name of Jean-Jacques Rousseau's tercentennial in 2012. Growing out of the unexpected convergence of a lecture series and art exhibit held in South Bend, Indiana, and a documentary film that was shot simultaneously in Compiègne, France, the participants had several goals: to show why Rousseau's moral philosophy is important for our time; to argue for the importance of subjective art forms such as photography, video letters, and autobiography; to reproduce the stunning photojournalism commissioned by Amnesty International to document and dignify people who suffer human rights abuses, such as substandard housing, nationless-ness, and ethnic prejudice; and to inspire new kinds of intergenerational teaching. The book includes essays from world-renowned scholars on Jean-Jacques Rousseau; five chapters by photojournalists, which include fifty-four photographs from Egypt, India, Macedonia, Mexico, and Nigeria; and notes by youthful visitors to the exhibit. In the volume's unorthodox combination of art and text, creation and reflection, the authors hope to elicit readers' interest in, and commitment to, an engaged form of public humanities. -- publisher's statement

Le Frankenstein du cageot á pommes : ou comment le monstre est né, de source (presque) sûre by Julia Douthwaite Viglione( Book )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Une histoire de fantômes, un roman noir pour jeunes lecteurs, et une pièce d'histoire alternative: Le Frankenstein du cageot à pommes tisse plusieurs fils pour montrer comment Mary Shelley, encore jeune, aurait pu trouver l'inspiration pour écrire Frankenstein par une nuit fatidique sur les rives du Lac Léman. Rencontrez la jeune fille quelques années auparavant lorsqu'elle découvre un conte français, publié en 1790, et son inventeur nommé Frankénsteïn qui apporte avec lui un robot humanoïde grandeur nature. Imaginez qu'elle aurait pu découvrir cette nouvelle parmi les textes ayant appartenu à sa mère, la célèbre écrivaine Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-97) qui séjourna en France en 1792-95 et partagea certains espoirs des révolutionnaires. S'appuyant sur des sources sûres (ou presque!), Le Frankenstein du cageot à pommes entremêle histoire, fantaisie et des recherches dans les archives françaises.
