One consequence of the cultural turn has been a destabilization of the distinction between high and low cultures. Some contemporary scholars (such as Noel Carroll) have lamented a corollary development - namely, the fact that the intellectual known as the critic has lost interest in making aesthetic judgments. I offer a wider context for this lament, looking at a formative period for aesthetic judgment - specifically, for literary criticism: the 1670s to 1714 in London. This period witnesses the emergence of a mass print culture and of critical debates about aesthetic value. One might expect that critics would be most urgently in demand during this period. But specific cases show that the critic has a history of precarious authority, in large part because of his participation in a chaotic print market. During this formative, experimental period for criticism, critics such as Thomas Rymer and Joseph Addison test out different models of aesthetic judgment. Performing publicly authoritative acts of aesthetic judgment is not a self-evident activity during this period. As early critics experiment, they simultaneously imagine early incarnations for the public intellectual - a figure by turns respectable and satirized, whose early history offers us a wider context for reflecting on its contemporary predicament.

Guocui xuebao and China's Path to Modernity, 1905-1911
Revolution as Restoration examines the journal Guocui xuebao (1905-1911) to elucidate the momentous political and social changes in early twentieth-century China. Rather than viewing the journal as a collection of documents for studying a thinker (e.g., Zhang Taiyan), a concept (e.g., national essence), or an intellectual movement (e.g., cultural conservatism), this book focuses on the global network of commerce and communication that allowed independent publications to appear in the Chinese print market. As such, this book offers a different perspective on the Chinese quest for modernity. It shows that, from the start, the Chinese quest for modernity was never completely orchestrated by the central government, nor was it static and monolithic as the teleology of revolution describes.

It was in this distinctive intersection of literacy, travel, and imperial employment that older notions of traveling and medical authority got reworked into a new configuration.

the print market might be traced. 2 Following on Levy’s critiques, I go further and claim that women’s participation in book production went unnoticed by historians for reasons beyond men’s monopolization of the printing process. The most important reason for historians’ neglect of women’s publishing

This chapter employs both close readings and modern technology to examine the rapidly changing print market during the French Revolution and the rise of the Napoleonic Empire, a transitional era characterized by new forms of publication thanks to the liberties granted by the Human Rights Declaration of 1789 and the latter’s thrust against repression and imperial censorship. Focusing on the Upper Rhine region between 1780 and 1810, the chapter investigates how newspapers shape regional and national identities and how the periodical press contributes to the acculturation of individual and collective cultural politics in the Upper Rhine area. The chapter thus raises a number of methodological issues that are currently at the center of periodical studies, that is, the relevance of archival and digital research for gathering information about the structure and the content of newspapers, but also about the journalists, editors, and printers, their forms of cooperation, and their various kinds of networks. This not only allows us to learn more about the impact of periodicals on specific regions or people, but also to localize and map these relations.
