about

This book discusses the visual and verbal city sketches which proliferated during the 'journalistic revolution' of the 1830s and 1840s. It shows how sketches transformed models of visual and printed media and of life science into a unique kind of sociology, presenting a self-critique of the middle class on the brink of industrial modernity.
MARTINA LAUSTER is Professor of German at the University of Exeter, UK. Her research focuses on comparative literature from the Nineteenth century and she has wide-ranging experience in leading collaborative research projects, such as the internet edition of Karl Gutzkow's works.
