    Abstract:
      This article investigates various forms of courtesanship and the liaison between courtesans and literati during the T'ang dynasty in China. Based on close examination of epitaphs, poetry, dynastic histories, monographs, and miscellaneous writings, it demonstrates that courtesan culture reached its peak during the T'ang; that house courtesanship was the most distinct type of courtesanship at the time; and that associating with courtesans provided a means whereby the new elite affirmed their social status and unique identity.

Dialogue: Pauli Murray's Notable Connections

    Abstract:
      Pauli Murray was involved in practically all the major developments that historians of the United States write about when they try to make sense of the twentieth century, especially the movements for social change that have been so central to its history. Civil rights, feminism, religion, literature, law, sexuality—no matter what the subject, there is Pauli Murray. Eight scholars—(Susan Ware, Patricia Bell-Scott, Glenda Gilmore, Rosalind Rosenberg, Susan Hartmann, Joyce Antler, Leila Rupp, and Verta Taylor)—tackle a different moment or theme in Murray's life. Each essay stands on its own, but when read collectively, they document Pauli Murray's central role in twentieth-century American women's history and are intended to spur future research.
    Gilmore, Glenda Elizabeth.
