Celebrity Across the Channel, 1750-1850 is the first book to study and compare the concept of celebrity in France and Britain from 1750 to 1850, offering a transnational perspective. It places in dialogue the growing field of celebrity studies in the two countries, especially by engaging with Antoine Lilti's seminal work, The Invention of Celebrity, translated into English in 2017. With contributions from a diverse range of fields, such as history, politics, literature, theater studies, and musicology, the volume employs a firmly interdisciplinary scope to explore an era marked by social, political, and cultural upheaval. The organization of the collection allows for new readings of the similarities and differences in the understanding of celebrity in Britain and France. Consequently, the volume builds upon questions that are currently at the heart of celebrity studies.
