The Arts and Intellectual Life in Modern America
Volumes in the series explore the intersection of the history of expressive culture and the history of ideas in modern America. The series aims to challenge scholars in American studies and cultural studies to consider the ideas that have informed and given form to artistic expression—whether in architecture and the visual arts or music, dance, theater, and literature. The series also expands the domain of intellectual history by examining how artistic works, and aesthetic experience more generally, participate in the discussion of truth, value, civic purpose, and personal meaning. The series is closed to new submissions.
