HATS OFF, GENTLEMEN ! CHANGING ARTS OF COMMUNICATION IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY

Arts de communiquer au dix-huitième siècle. Edité par/ edited by Penelope J. Corfield et Leonie Hannan


These spirited research essays provide new views of the multifarious arts of communication in eighteenth-century Europe. Protocols were never static. Case-studies assess the interplay between tradition and innovation in interpersonal greetings (from hat-raising to the handshake) ; letter-writing ; literary creativity ; the role of theatre ; instruction across global cultures; and popular visual satire. A final overview looks beyond singular definitions such as ‘Enlightenment’ or ‘Modernity’ towards an era of sociocultural plurality.
