Intellectual History Newsletter

Volume 6 (1984)
Thomas Bender, editor

The sixth number of the Newsletter begins with an essay by Kathleen McCarthy that locates three books in the field of women's history in the frame of the larger intellectual and cultural history of the period between the Civil War and World War II. Her essay is followed by two discussions of media and communications history, one a research agenda offered by Dan Schiller, and the other a course syllabus and bibliography by historian Daniel Czitrom. Then follow two essays by Americanists, Bruce Kuklick and Sean Wilentz, each looking at some recent work in European intellectual and cultural history, asking what we Americanists should or should not make of it. The issue concludes with an essay on the importance of and the problems of thinking about Transcendentalism as a social movement.
