CFP: Edited Collection on Eliza Rachel Félix

I welcome chapter proposals for an interdisciplinary collection on the life, oeuvre, and legacy of the famous nineteenth-century French Jewish actress Eliza Rachel Félix (1821-1858). Scholars in the fields of literary and cultural studies, theater, Jewish studies, history of art, journalism, etc. are encouraged to contribute the proposals. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

--Rachel’s roles

--Rachel’s impact on the French theater

--Rachel’s influence on nineteenth-century actresses

--Rachel as a symbol of resistance and revolution
