This panel invites papers that explore the period's textual engagement with female notoriety. Defoe's Roxana (1724), for example, follows the earlier tradition of the whore biography, reimagined as a spiritual autobiography. These "histories" of whores, written about and by women from both poor and privileged families, are unsparing in their social critique; these women's grievances include the lack of proper education for girls, abuse, poverty, incest, and sexual predation. Yet, a few "high-profile" courtesan-celebrities like Nell Gwynn and Kitty Fisher relished the limelight, and whose lives became popular and profitable subjects in the print market.

"Taste is dead emotion" – so Wyndham Lewis declares in 'Blast No. 2'. To be a productive force, "[t]aste should become deeper and exclusive: definitely a STRONGHOLD – a point and not a line." Lewis' critique of taste is emblematic of a wider modernist concern with the role of discernment, refinement and connoisseurship in art, literature and performance. Taste carries with it a legacy of aristocratic dilettantism and public moralizing inherited from those eighteenth and nineteenth-century lovers of art. But if Lewis critiques the 'line' that represents a fuzzy spectrum of appreciation, his re-defined conception of taste, pulled centripetally to a point, is not a rejection of discernment but a reformulation of it.
