Gillian Russell is Professor of English at the University of York. A Fellow of the Australian Academy of the Humanities, she is internationally renowned for her innovative interdisciplinary research that began with The Theatres of War: Performance, Culture and Society, 17931815 (1995). She has pioneered field-changing new directions in scholarship on war and theatre and on the study of sociability. Her books include Romantic Sociability: Social Networks and Literary Culture 17701840 (Cambridge, 2002), co-edited with Clara Tuite, Women, Sociability and Theatre in Georgian London (Cambridge, 2007), and Tracing War in British Enlightenment and Romantic Culture, co-edited with Neil Ramsey (2015).

Klappentext

This book revises the view of printed ephemera as a trivial or disposable by giving a history of its role in eighteenth-century culture. It explores how tickets, playbills and posters became a way of facilitating social interaction and, for collectors, a means of preserving the evanescence of daily life.
