Taste and power : furnishing Modern France by Leora Auslander( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2006 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Enlivened and enriched by Auslander's experiences as a cabinetmaker, this pathbreaking work demonstrates that in post-Revolutionary France, furniture and consumer goods became newly important means of constituting selves, social class, and, perhaps most significantly, the economy and society of the nation itself. The very style of the goods reflected these preoccupations: nineteenth-century bourgeois style was dominated by gendered versions of Old Regime-style furniture, while the working class was offered new furniture designed specifically for its needs. Tastemaking took on a sudden urgency, reflected in the creation of new schools, museums, expositions, libraries, magazines, and books designed to "improve" the taste of producers and consumers alike. As these institutions competed with furniture sellers, a fierce competition sprang up among government bureaucrats, private philanthropists, and distributors to control workers' and consumers' taste. Auslander melds the history of high politics - the formation of the state - with the history of the mundane - furniture - in order to examine how power was consolidated, reproduced, and even resisted in the small objects and gestures of everyday life in France
Cultural revolutions : everyday life and politics in Britain, North America, and France by Leora Auslander( Book )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and French and held by 496 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The revolutions in the England, North America, and France ushered in the modern political age. Cultural Revolutions analyzes the place of material culture, ritual, and everyday life during these revolutions, providing a fresh and engaging interpretation of the strategies used to transform people from monarchists into republicans. The author shows how, faced with the challenge of persuading large populations to alter their previous convictions and loyalties, revolutionaries in all three countries turned to the power of aesthetics. From the banning of dancing in Cromwell's England, to the 'homespun' clothing of Revolutionary America, to France's new calendar and naming systems, Auslander assesses how daily habits and tastes were altered in the interests of political change."--Pub. desc

Les femmes ont-elles attendu le XX e siècle pour être considérées et agir comme des citoyennes? L'accès à la citoyenneté a-t-il toujours été déterminé par les rapports de domination entre les sexes? Ce numéro de Clio interroge le concept de citoyenneté à la lumière de l'histoire des femmes et du genre qui a permis depuis longtemps d'en redéfinir le vocabulaire et les contours. Depuis l'Antiquité classique jusqu'à l'Algérie, le Nigéria ou le Mexique contemporains en passant par l'Italie médiévale et moderne ou la France du XVIIIe siècle, les expériences de la citoyenneté - qui s'exercent à des échelles variées (celle de la cité, de la commune, de l'État ou des instances internationales) - se révèlent bien plus riches que le seul exercice des droits politiques. Les pratiques décrivant la citoyenneté ne sont donc pas seulement du ressort du droit ou de son affirmation mais résultent de rapports sociaux plus complexes où les inégalités de genre croisent les inégalités économiques et culturelles. Ce numéro propose ainsi une mise en lumière de la diversité des niveaux de participation à la chose politique et conduit à une historicisation salutaire de la citoyenneté contemporaine.

Making Jewish gender: Religion, race, sexuality, and American Jews, 1910--1924 by Sarah Imhoff( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Making Jewish Gender: Religion, Race, Sexuality, and American Jews, 1910-1924" argues that the discourses of race, sexuality, and criminality served to construct what kinds of gendered identities were available to American Jews. Using sources from both Jews and non-Jews, it explores the contests and changes over what it meant to be a Jewish man or a Jewish woman in America. The study asks how Judaism and religious practice created gender norms, and how those gendered norms were adapted by immigrants and acculturated Jews in the American context. It uses the discourse of race and race science, "passing," acting and the theatrical, civilization, and criminality to position Jewish masculinity and femininity in a wider landscape of American culture. Drawing on feminist theorist Judith Butler, "Making Jewish Gender" suggests that the historical situation was more complicated than a simple "feminization" of male Jews by antisemites and others. Rather, both Jews and non-Jews actively participated in conversations about the cultural and biological status of both Jewish men and Jewish women. Perhaps because of the growing similarity of gender norms for both white non-Jewish American women and, especially, acculturated Jewish women, much of the discourse effectively erased one part of a Jewish/woman identity in favor of collapse under the larger category of white womanhood or the male category "Jew."
