Toni Scott, ‘Aswarm with the Spirits of All Ages Here: Inconceivable Spaces of Slavery and Freedom’

The ordeal of the enslaved in both material and existential terms is important for the public’s understanding of the history of the African American presence in North Carolina and elsewhere.

‘Becoming a Woman in the Age of Enlightenment: French Art from the Horvitz Collection,’ Exhibition

They reached increasingly broader audiences. These readers expected both edification and entertainment from historical novels, which should address not just the mind, but also the heart. Historical novels became a ‘school of national emotions.’ They played an important role in the construction of nineteenth century Germans’ national identity, because people’s connection to a…
