PressestimmenDespite the veritable explosion of historical work on exhibitionary culture in the last decade, relatively little attention has been paid to the role of women in organizing the transnational spectacles that dominated the culturescapes of imperial modernity ... Transforming the Public Sphere ... offers an important corrective to this oversight."--Antoinette Burton, from the introduction "A unique study based on a virtual treasury of archival materials, Transforming the Public Sphere touches on many of the most important issues of major concern today to historians of feminism and women's history."--Marilyn Boxer, coauthor of Connecting Spheres: European Women in a Globalizing World, 1500 to the Present
