"Through photographs and reviews, documentary film and oral history, Manning intricately and inextricably links the two historically divided traditions. The result is a unique view of American dance history across the divisions of black and white, radical and liberal, gay and straight, performer and spectator, and into the multiple, interdependent meanings of bodies in motion."--Jacket

Enlightenment and emancipation ( Book )
2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
" The Enlightenment has been represented in radically opposing ways: on the one hand, as the throwing off of the chains of superstition, custom, and usurped authority; on the other hand, in the Romantic period, but also more recently, as what Michel Foucault termed "the great confinement," in which "mind-forged manacles" imprison the free and irrational spirit. The debate about the "Enlightenment project" remains a topical one, which can still arouse fierce passions. This collection of essays by distinguished scholars from various disciplines addresses the central question: "Was Enlightenment a force for emancipation?" Their responses, working from within, and frequently across the disciplinary lines of history, political science, economics, music, literature, aesthetics, art history, and film, reveal unsuspected connections and divergences even between well-known figures and texts. In their turn, the essays suggest the need for further inquiry in areas that turn out to be very far from closed. The volume considers major writings in unusual juxtaposition; highlights new figures of importance; and demonstrates familiar texts to embody strange implications."--Publisher's website
Transatlantic literary studies, 1660-1830 by Eve Tavor Bannet( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The recently developed field of transatlantic literary studies has encouraged scholars to move beyond national literatures towards an examination of communications between Britain and the Americas. The true extent and importance of these material and literary exchanges is only just beginning to be discovered. This collection of original essays explores the transatlantic literary imagination during the key period from 1660 to 1830: from the colonization of the Americas to the formative decades following political separation between the nations. Contributions from leading scholars from both sides of the Atlantic bring a variety of approaches and methods to bear on both familiar and undiscovered texts. Revealing how literary genres were borrowed and readapted to a different context, the volume offers an index of the larger literary influences going backwards and forwards across the ocean"
Character, self, and sociability in the Scottish Enlightenment by Thomas Ahnert( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is about Enlightenment ideas of "character." It argues for their central importance in eighteenth-century thought and culture. The scope of this volume extends well beyond the confines of literary history. It examines discussions of race, nation, the self, virtue, sociability, and historical progress. The specially commissioned essays in this volume are the first, collectively, to address the broader significance of Enlightenment "character," and to do so from an interdisciplinary perspective. The focus is on the Scottish Enlightenment, but contributors consider these debates in their international contexts and in relation to parallel developments in Britain, Europe, and America"

Fragments of union : making connections in Scottish and American writing by Susan Manning( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Fragments of Union offers a new approach to comparative literary studies. It is a book about forms of connection: between nations, between literature, between individuals, and between words. It asks how, and why, connections get made and severed, and about the nature of the pieces that remain. Interdisciplinary readings of works by Scots and Americans from David Hume, 'Ossian' and Thomas Jefferson, to Scott and Emerson, Whitman, Dickinson and William James, establish relationships in political, philosophical, cultural and grammatical contexts. Important new discussions of many well-known works, both Scottish and American, help to re-draw the literary map of both countries during the Enlightenment and Romantic periods." "The book argues that Scottish Enlightenment writings on fragmentation and union established decisively modern forms of thought in Britain and America, and draws particular connections between discussions of the nature of consciousness in Hume and his successors, and the development of Anglo-American psychoanalytic theory. The discussion of forms of 'union' has sharp political and cultural relevance in the new conditions presented by devolved government in Britain."--Jacket
