Almeida, "London-Kingston-Caracas: The Transatlantic Self-Fashioning of Simón Bolívar"

This article argues that transatlantic readings of Romanticism must go beyond the limits imposed by a monolingual, Anglophone definition of the transatlantic. An analysis of the bilingual presentation of Simón Bolívar's persona and writings for a London public in publications such as the Jamaica Gazette, Variedades, and the New Monthly Magazine shows how this amplified notion of the transatlantic helps us better understand Britain's political and literary interests in the Americas. This essay appears in _Sullen Fires Across the Atlantic: Essays in Transatlantic Romanticism_, a volume of _Romantic Circles Praxis Series_, prepared exclusively for Romantic Circles (http://www.rc.umd.edu/), University of Maryland.

Garval, "Alexis Soyer and the Rise of the Celebrity Chef"

While largely forgotten today, French-born British culinarian Alexis Soyer (1809-1858), transformed our vision of the chef as a public figure. Like other early celebrity chefs, he first styled himself as a great man of letters, but his dandyism, theatrics, tireless self-fashioning and promotion, and, above all, his widely-read and flatteringly-illustrated books, propelled him toward a new kind of renown. In particular, his humanitarian efforts in the Crimean War, and account thereof in his Culinary Campaign (1857), established that chefs need not pretend to be great writers, to be seen as noteworthy personages – a shift underpinning their later emergence as broadcast stars.
