The conversation parties of the bluestockings, held to debate contemporary ideas in eighteenth-century Britain, were vital in encouraging female artistic achievement. The bluestockings promoted links between learning and virtue in the public imagination, inventing a new kind of informal sociability that combined the life of the senses with that of the mind. This collection of essays, by leading scholars in the fields of literature, history and art history, provides an interdisciplinary treatment of bluestocking culture in eighteenth-century Britain. It is the first academic volume to concentrate on the rich visual and material culture that surrounded and supported the bluestocking project, from formal portraits and sculptures to commercially reproduced prints. By the early twentieth century, the term 'bluestocking' came to signify a dull and dowdy intellectual woman, but the original bluestockings inhabited a world in which brilliance was valued at every level and women were encouraged to shine and even dazzle.

Review:

'Eger's collection is a very welcome contribution that will stimulate further thought around the subject and encourage more research from this perspective to locate broader networks of Bluestockings and answer wider ranging questions about the development of women and society more generally.' Jackie Collier, Early Modern Women Journal

Book Description:

The bluestockings met regularly to debate contemporary ideas in mid-eighteenth-century Britain, uniquely promoting new links between women, learning and virtue in the public imagination. This is the first academic and interdisciplinary volume to concentrate on the rich visual culture that surrounded and supported the bluestocking project.
