    Beside the Bard:  Scottish Lowland Poetry in the Age of Burns

    Beside the Bard: Scottish Lowland Poetry in the Age of Burns

    Whether male or female, loyalist or radical, urban or rural, literati or autodidacts, Scottish Lowland poets in the age of Burns adamantly refuse to imagine a single British nation, but instead pose the question of "Scotland" as a revolutionary category, always subject to creative destruction and reformation.

    Black Celebrity:  Contemporary Representations of Postbellum Athletes and Artists

    Black Celebrity: Contemporary Representations of Postbellum Athletes and Artists

    Examines representations of postbellum black athletes and artist-entertainers by novelists Caryl Phillips and Jeffery Renard Allen and poets Kevin Young, Frank X Walker, Adrian Matejka and Tyehimba Jess. Inhabiting the perspectives of boxer Jack Johnson and musicians "Blind Tom" Wiggins and Sissieretta Jones, along with several others, these writers both revise understandings of black celebrity history and evince the through-lines between the postbellum era and our own time.
