EIGHTEENTH-CENTURY CROSSOVERS: GENDER, GENRE, GEOGRAPHY

updated: 
Wednesday, January 14, 2015 - 12:22pm
full name / name of organization: 
Sonia Sahoo and Ramit Samaddar (Centre for Advanced Study in English, Jadavpur University, Kolkata, India)

Our proposed collection aims to explore the meanings of crossover in the eighteenth century. The concept of crossover grew out of the uneasy reconcilement between the era's belief in the absoluteness of taxonomical categories and its paradoxical insistence on the potential malleability and manipulability of the same. Sweeping changes in the cultural scene challenged the seeming discreteness between conceptual kinds, and unleashed the possibility of transcending boundaries of all sorts.

Girls' Economies: Work & Play Cultures

Edited by Miriam Forman-Brunell
and Diana Anselmo-Sequeira
foreword by Dr. Eileen Boris

We know more about the history of grownups' labor than we do about girls' work, especially in informal domains. We know more about adult women workers than about girlhood employment and work-themed amusements. We know more about girls' consumption practices than about their production patterns. We know more about childhood and play than we do about how play informs girls' work skills, sensibilities, and identities as workers. We know more about businessmen and women than about moneymaking girls.
