The Rise of New Media 1750-1850 : Transatlantic Discourse and American Memory, Hardback Book

The Rise of New Media 1750-1850 : Transatlantic Discourse and American Memory Hardback

Part of the The New Urban Atlantic series

Description

This monograph explores transatlantic literary culture by tracing the proliferation of `new media,' such as the anthology, the literary history and the magazine, in the period between 1750 and 1850.

The fast-paced media landscape out of which these publishing genres developed produced the need of a `memory of literature' and a concomitant rhetoric of remembering strikingly similar to what today is called a cultural memory debate.

Thus, rather than depicting the emergence of an American national literature, The Rise of New Media(1750-1850) combines impulses from media history, the history of print, the sociology of literature and canon theory to uncover nascent forms and genres of literary self-reflectivity and early stirrings of a canon debate in the Atlantic World.
