About this product
- DescriptionProducts of modernity, postcards continue to provoke comment today as in the nineteenth century. With their unique status as interdisciplinary image-objects that cross lines of geography, ecomy, and gender, postcards epitomize the complex history of visual culture. These often sweet, stalgic, inexpensive mementos of commercial culture have also been carriers, even instigators, of colonialist exoticism and political propaganda. They straddle the by w largely obliterated line between 'high' and 'low' art, between an earlier modernist art history and more recent work in visual culture. This fully illustrated volume is the first of its kind to bring together the latest interdisciplinary research on postcards as a significant area of scholarly inquiry. In addition to the editors, the contributors are Rebecca J. DeRoo, Ellen Handy, Elizabeth B. Heuer, Timothy Van Laar, Annelies Moors, Cary Nelson, John O'Brian, Naomi Schor, Kimberly A. Smith, Rachel Sw, Nancy Stieber, and Andres Mario Zervigon.
