Critical Perspectives on Art History
Demonstrating that art history has significant connections to real life, this active and engaging survey introduces students to the complexity of issues and approaches that characterize the study of Western art history today. With readings from a diverse panel of informed and passionate writers, the anthology offers a unique multi-perspective approach—covering everything from the power of images to shape the way we know things, to the political and policy debates about the place of the arts in our society.

Speaking Volumes: Women, Reading, and Speech in the Age of Austen
First inspired by reading Pride and Prejudice aloud and discovering a totally new novel, Michaelson (literary studies, U. of Texas-Dallas) looks generally at the relationship between reading and speech in the late 18th century. She challenges the tradition that links the rise of the novel firmly to print culture and to silent and solitary reading, and the tendency in both the 18th and 20th centuries to define women's language as a coherent sociolect.

Romanticism and the Materiality of Nature
In the spring of 2000 Associate Professor of English Onno Oerlemans published the book Romanticism and the Materiality of Nature. Given the current environmental concerns, it is not surprising to find literary critics and theorists revisiting the Romantic poets with ecological hindsight. In this timely study, Onno Oerlemans extends these current eco-critical views by synthesizing a range of viewpoints from the Romantic period. He explores not only the ideas of poets and artists, but also those of philosophers, scientists and explorers. More ...
Among Women: From the Homosocial to the Homoerotic in the Ancient World
Margaret Bundy Scott Professor of Comparative Literature Nancey Rabinowitz and Lisa Auanger are the editors of Among Women: From the Homosocial to the Homoerotic in the Ancient World. Women's and men's worlds were largely separate in ancient Mediterranean societies, and, in consequence, many women¹s deepest personal relationships were with other women. Yet relatively little scholarly or popular attention has focused on women¹s relationships in antiquity, in contrast to recent interest in the relationships between men in ancient Greece and Rome. The essays in this book seek to close this gap by exploring a wide variety of textual and archaeological evidence for women's homosocial and homoerotic relationships from prehistoric Greece to fifth-century CE Egypt. More ...
