Becoming Modern
New Nineteenth-Century Studies
Series Editors:
Sarah Sherman, Janet Aikins, Rohan McWilliam, Janet Polasky

A series sponsored by the University of New Hampshire Press that maps the complexity of historical change and assesses the formation of ideas, movements, and institutions crucial to our own time by publishing books that examine the emergence of modernity in North America and Europe. It will publish works drawn from the humanities and social sciences written for scholars, students, and general readers. Books that speak across academic disciplines and national borders to a wide audience are especially welcome. Becoming Modern titles are also published in the sub-series, Becoming Modern/Reading Dress.
