How to Do Things with Style: Essays in Honor of Joan DeJean

How to Do Things with Style: Essays in Honor of Joan DeJean, the third volume in the French Review Book Series, it edited by Amy S. Wyngaard and Roland Racevskis.

The essays in this volume pay tribute to the scholarship and mentorship of Joan DeJean—her approaches, her subjects, her style. Drawing inspiration from her groundbreaking works on early modern French literary and cultural history, DeJean’s former PhD students elaborate new ways of looking at well-known French, paintings, and objects within their social and historical contexts. As these essays attest, DeJean’s style has made its mark on more than one generation of scholars and scholarship.
