Hats Off, Gentlemen! Changing Arts of Communication in the Eighteenth Century

Penelope J. Corfield (Editor), Leonie Hannan (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

These spirited research essays provide new views of the multifarious arts of communication in eighteenth-century Europe. Protocols were never static. Case-studies assess the interplay between tradition and innovation in interpersonal greetings (from hat-raising to the handshake) ; letter-writing ; literary creativity ; the role of theatre ; instruction across global cultures; and popular visual satire. A final overview looks beyond singular definitions such as ‘Enlightenment’ or ‘Modernity’ towards an era of sociocultural plurality.
