Summary
"This edited volume is the first to study and compare the concept of celebrity in France and Britain from 1750 to 1850, as the two countries transformed into the states we recognize today. It offers a transnational perspective by placing scholarship from the field of celebrity studies as it has grown in the two countries in dialogue, especially by engaging with Antoine Lilti's seminal French-language work, The Invention of Celebrity, which was translated into English in 2017. With contributions from a diverse range of scholarly perspectives, the volume has a firmly interdisciplinary scope over the time period examined, which was an era marked by social, political, and cultural upheaval. Bringing together such fields as history, politics, literature, theater studies, and musicology, the essays cover celebrities from royalty to adventurers and philosophers, and explore celebrity on micro and macro levels, from the vibrant world of the theater to the emerging field of science. The careful ordering of chapters allows for new readings of the similarities and differences in the understanding of celebrity in Britain and France. Consequently, the volume builds upon the questions that are currently at the heart of celebrity studies to offer the first truly comparative analysis of celebrity across the Channel from 1750 to 1850, initiating a productive dialogue across disciplines"--
