Slavery, Colonialism, and Connoisseurship Gender and Eighteenth-century Literary Transnationalism Book uri icon

She explores the circumatlantic redefinition of Taste and Value as cultural and moral concepts in gender and racial discourses in slave-owning, colonizing and connoisseurial Britain, and demonstrates how values and aesthetics were redefined in late eighteenth-century England.
