Veröffentlicht am 13.03.2023
In this special Women's History Month episode, Dr. Stefanie Schäfer discusses gossip with American Studies Scholar Dr. Katrin Horn (University of Bayreuth), head of the research project www.archivalgossip.com. Following the trajectories of American artists in Rome, and specifically the making of actress Charlotte Cushman's celebrity persona, they read the functions of gossip in 19th-century US magazines between the intimate and the political, between escapism and nation building, and they also ponder the question of how gossip became gendered.
