  2. Being an early career feminist academic: global perspectives, experiences and challenges

    Thwaites, Rachel; Pressland, Amy
    This book highlights the experiences of feminist early career researchers and teachers from an international perspective in an increasingly neoliberal academy. It offers a new angle on a significant and increasingly important discussion on the ethos of higher education and the sector's place in society. Higher education is fast-changing, increasingly market-driven, and precarious. In this context entering the academy as an early career academic presents both challenges and opportunities. Early career academics frequently face the prospect of working on fixed term contracts, with little security and no certain prospect of advancement, while constantly looking for the next role. Being a...

A critique...

  9. Thackeray in time: history, memory and modernity

    Crossley, Alice; Salmon, Richard
    An intense fascination with the experience of time has long been recognised as a distinctive feature of the writing of William Makepeace Thackeray (1811–1863). This collection of essays, however, represents the first sustained critical examination of Thackeray's 'time consciousness' in all its varied manifestations. Encompassing the full chronological span of the author's career and a wide range of literary forms and genres in which he worked, Thackeray in Time repositions Thackeray's temporal and historical self-consciousness in relation to the broader socio-cultural contexts of Victorian modernity. The first part of the collection focusses on some of the characteristic temporal modes of...

  10. Media, diaspora and conflict

    Ogunyemi, Ola
    Conflict appeals to the media because of its news values’ attributes. But while there is a wealth of literature on representation and mediation of conflicts from the perspectives of mainstream media, there is a paucity of research from the perspectives of diasporic media. Therefore, the various chapters in this anthology provide systematically, analytically and empirically grounded approaches to understanding the representation and mediation of conflicts by the diasporic media and their consequences for conflict resolution. By so doing, this anthology aims to provoke debates and further research into the roles of diasporic media in escalating and deescalating conflict at Home,...

  12. Middlefield: A postwar council estate in time

    Waites, Ian
    In May 1964, Ian Waites’s family moved into a brand new, two-bedroomed council house on the just-completed Middlefield Lane estate in Gainsborough, Lincolnshire. The estate was a typical provincial example of a post-World War Two local authority housing scheme intended to provide new homes for working-class families. It was characterised by modernist ideas in architecture and planning: the houses had Formica kitchen ‘tops’, a TV aerial socket, and a ‘picture-window’, while the estate itself was almost wholly pedestrianised. Ian Waites’s photographs document this world, and his recollective descriptions of the estate during his childhood in the 1960s and ’70s attempt...

  15. Martin Lister and his remarkable daughters: art and science in the seventeenth century

    Roos, Anna Marie
    On 17 July 1681, the English naturalist and physician Martin Lister (1639-1712) wrote to his wife Hannah en route from York to France. The good doctor suffered from severe and chronic asthma throughout his life, and he took “the waters” on the Continent periodically to convalesce and rest away from a busy medical practice and growing family responsibilities.
