Most widely held works by Karen Raber
Early modern ecostudies : from the Florentine codex to Shakespeare by I Kamps ( Book )
14 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 360 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The essays in this volume interrogate the unique and often problematic relationship between early modern cultural studies and ecocriticism, providing theoretical insights and models for a future practice that successfully wed the two disciplines
The culture of the horse : status, discipline, and identity in the Early Modern world ( Book )
1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume fills an important gap in the analysis of early modern history and culture by reintroducing scholars to the significance of the horse. A more complete understanding of the role of horses and horsemanship is absolutely crucial to our understanding of the early modern world. Each chapter in the collection provides a snapshot of how horse culture and the broader culture are intertwined in a tapestry of images, objects, structures, sounds, gestures, texts, and ideas. Without knowledge of how the horse figured in all these aspects, no version of political, material, or intellectual culture in the period can be entirely accurate."--BOOK JACKET
Animal bodies, Renaissance culture by Karen Raber ( Book )
5 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book examines how the shared embodied existence of early modern human and nonhuman animals challenged the establishment of species distinctions. The material conditions of the early modern world brought humans and animals into complex interspecies relationships that have not been fully accounted for in critical readings of the period's philosophical, scientific, or literary representations of animals. Where such prior readings have focused on the role of reason in debates about human exceptionalism, this book turns instead to a series of cultural sites in which we find animal and human bodies sharing environments, mutually transforming and defining one another's lives. To uncover the animal body's role in anatomy, eroticism, architecture, labor, and consumption, Raber analyzes canonical works, situating them among readings of human and equine anatomical texts, medical recipes, theories of architecture and urban design, husbandry manuals, and horsemanship treatises

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The opportunities offered by the explosion of knowledge about early modern women writers in the past two decades also pose a sometimes formidable challenge. For some sixteenth- and seventeenth-century English women writers-Mary Sidney, Mary Wroth, Aemilia Lanyer, Margaret Cavendish, Anne Clifford, and Elizabeth Cary-the critical literature has already become voluminous. For others, such as Anne Lock and Lucy Hutchinson, recent editions of exceptional work provide good reason to foreground them as likely figures soon to assume prominence in the field. Drawing together essays and articles from a disparate group of scholarly journals and collective volumes, some now difficult to obtain, this series of seven volumes offers a selection from the best work in this field. Presented in a compact, easy-to-access format, this series will be especially useful for scholars new to the area as well as for experienced scholars who may have overlooked an important essay published in a journal with limited circulation. Each of the seven volumes listed below has been edited by a recognized authority in the area. Volume editors provide a substantial introduction surveying the current state of the field; a brief biographical account of the life of each writer covered in the volume; and a select bibliography for additional reading. In order to provide the most coverage without losing depth, some volumes cover multiple early modern authors. Every volume is published in hardcover and printed on acid-free paper suitable for library collections."--Publisher's description from half-title verso
