9781557535054: Seeking a Voice: Images of Race and Gender in the 19th Century

This volume chronicles the media's role in reshaping American life during the tumultuous nineteenth century by focusing specifically on the presentation of race and gender in the newspapers and magazines of the time. The work is divided into four parts: Part I, Race Reporting, details the various ways in which America's racial minorities were portrayed; Part II, Fires of Discontent, looks at the moral and religious opposition to slavery by the abolitionist movement and demonstrates how that opposition was echoed by African Americans themselves; Part III, The Cult of True Womanhood, examines the often disparate ways in which American women were portrayed in the national media as they assumed a greater role in public and private life; and Part IV, Transcending the Boundaries, traces the lives of pioneering women journalists who sought to alter and expand their gender's participation in American life, showing how the changing role of women led to various journalistic attempts to depict and define women through sensationalistic news coverage of female crime stories.
