About this product
- DescriptionSince the 1980s, scholars have made the case for examining nineteenth-century culture - particularly literary output - through the lens of ecomics. In Culture and Money in the Nineteenth Century: Abstracting Ecomics, two luminaries in the field of Victorian studies, Daniel Bivona and Marlene Tromp, have collected contributions from leading thinkers that push New Ecomic Criticism in new and exciting directions. Spanning the Americas, India, England, and Scotland, this volume adopts an inclusive, global view of the cultural effects of ecomics and exchange. Contributors use the concept of abstraction to show how ecomic thought and concerns around money permeated all aspects of nineteenth-century culture, from the language of wills to arguments around the social purpose of art. The characteristics of investment and speculation; the fraught symbolic and practical meanings of paper money to the Victorians; the shifting value of goods, services, and ideas; the evolving legal conceptualizations of artistic ownership - all of these, contributors argue, are essential to understanding nineteenth-century culture in Britain and beyond. Contributors: Daniel Bivona, Suzanne Daly, Jennifer Hayward, Aeron Hunt, Roy Kreitner, Kathryn Pratt Russell, Cordelia Smith, and Marlene Tromp.
