In the neighborhood : women's publication in early America by Caroline Wigginton( )

11 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 1,203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this compelling and original book, Caroline Wigginton reshapes our understanding of early American literary history. Overturning long-standing connections between the male-dominated print culture of pamphlets, broadsides, and newspapers and the transformative ideas that instigated the American Revolution, Wigginton explores how women's 'relational publications'--circulated texts, objects, and performances--transformed their public and intimate worlds. She argues that Native, black, and white women's interpersonal 'publications' revolutionized the dynamics of power and connection in public and private spaces, whether those spaces were Quaker meeting houses, Creek talwas, trading posts, burial grounds, or the women's own 'neighborhoods.' Informed by deep and rich archival research, Wigginton's case studies explore specific instances of 'relational publication.' The book begins with a pairing of examples--the statement a grieving Lenape mother made through a wampum belt and the political affiliations created when a salon hostess shared her poetry. Subsequent chapters trace a history of women's publication practice, including a Creek woman's diplomatic and legal procession-spectacles in the colonial Southeast, a black mother's expression of protest in Newport, Rhode Island, and the resulting evangelical revival, Phillis Wheatley's elegies that refigured neighborhoods of enslaved and free Bostonians, and a Quaker woman's pious and political commonplace book in Revolutionary Philadelphia."--Publisher's description
Feeling godly : religious affections and Christian contact in early North America( )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1746, Jonathan Edwards described his philosophy on the process of Christian conversion in A Treatise Concerning Religious Affections. For Edwards, a strict Congregationalist, true conversion is accompanied by a new heart and yields humility, forgiveness, and love-affections that work a change in the person's nature. But, how did other early American communities understand religious affections and come to recognize their manifestation? Feeling Godly brings together well-known and highly regarded scholars of early American history and literature, Native American studies, African American history, and religious studies to investigate the shape, feel, look, theology, and influence of religious affections in early American sites of contact with and between Christians. While remaining focused on the question of religious affections, these essays span a wide range of early North American cultures, affiliations, practices, and devotions, and enable a comparative approach that draws together a history of emotions with a history of religion. In addition to the volume editors, this collection includes essays from Joanna Brooks, Kathleen Donegan, Melissa Frost, Stephanie Kirk, Jon Sensbach, Scott Manning Stevens, and Mark Valeri, with an afterword by Barbara H. Rosenwein"--
Indigenuity : Native craftwork and the art of American literatures by Caroline Wigginton( Book )

7 editions published in 2022 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this innovative work at the intersection of Indigenous studies, literary studies, book history, and material culture studies, Caroline Wigginton tells a story of the interweavings of Native craftwork and American literatures from their ancient roots to the present. Focused primarily on North America, especially the colonized lands and waters now claimed by the United States, this book argues for the foundational but often-hidden aesthetic orientation of American literary history toward Native craftwork"--
