Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture, Volume 31

Throughout the eighteenth century, shifts in political power and social structures were making their way across Europe and into the New World. In this volume of Studies in Eighteenth-Century Culture, editors Ourida Mostefai and Catherine Ingrassia have brought together four clusters of related essays that explore the complexities of national and international identity in light of these changes, integrating such diverse fields of scholarship as women's studies, literary theory, and art history. Topics addressed range from gambling and the relationship between money and power to the way that portrayals of peasantry in art and literature helped to shape the French national identity.
