  1. Deportation or repatriation? African and Afro-Caribbean voices from 1919

    Chapman, Jane
    The book dissects the uncomfortable and sometimes painful history of events during 1919 after the race riots, through records of personal stories in government colonial archives for the West Indies, West Africa, and Britain. The immediate post war period was the most troubled period of peace that the world had hitherto seen, prompting the author to argue that the aftermaths of war need to be given more attention as a distinctly defined period of post-conflict adjustment, in which individual minority voices should be highlighted. This study represents the first systematic attempt to analyse records of people of Afro-Caribbean origin who appealed...

  2. Photography and networks [special issue of History of Photography]

    Clayton, Owen; Cheshire, Jim
    Since the turn of the century, photographic studies has undergone a dramatic shift in perspective. The modernist art historical narrative that emphasised the innovations of individual photographer-artists has receded, while recent research has participated in what some have referred to as photography’s ‘ethnographic turn’.1 In order to recognise and celebrate contemporary scholarship, we organised a conference entitled ‘Rethinking Early Photography’ at the University of Lincoln, UK in June 2015.2 The topic of networks emerged as the conference discussion proceeded, eventually becoming the basis for this special issue. Thinking about networks, in their various forms, is one important way in which photographic studies has moved away from the privileging of...

  3. Lebens-Bilder. Untersuchungen zur Wahrnehmung im Romanwerk Heimito von Doderers. [Observations about the concept of perception in Heimito von Doderer’s novels]

    Henkel, Imke
    An analysis of the concept of "perception" in Heimito von Doderer's fictional work. Doderer uses the concept of conception to heal the broke modern world and re-create the possibility of living a wholesome life. In the context of modernity of the early 20th century Doderer represents the 'anti-moderns'. However, his novels become increasingly pessimistic about the possibility of healing and living 'as a whole'.

  6. Nietzsche on art and life

    Came, Daniel
    Nietzsche was not interested in the nature of art as such, or in providing an aesthetic theory of a traditional sort. For he regarded the significance of art to lie not in l'art pour l'art, but in the role that it might play in enabling us positively to 'revalue' the world and human experience. This volume brings together a number of distinguished figures in contemporary Anglo-American Nietzsche scholarship to examine his views on art and the aesthetic in the context of this wider philosophical project. All of the major themes of Nietzsche's aesthetics are discussed: art and the affirmation of...

  7. Women's leadership development programs [Special issue of Journal of Management Education]

    Debebe, Gelaye; Anderson, Deirdre; Bilimoria, Diana; Vinnicombe, Susan M.
    The quest to develop talent across all workforce segments coupled with the persistent underrepresentation of women in leadership positions in organizations across the globe has led to increasing demand for women’s leadership development programs (WLDPs) over recent years. This special issue, titled Women’s Leadership Development Programs: Lessons Learned and New Frontiers, considers the use of these programs to foster transformational change (Anderson, Vinnicombe, & Singh, 2008; Debebe, 2011; Vinnicombe & Singh, 2002, 2003; Bilimoria, Joy, & Liang, 2008; Bilimoria & Liang, 2012; Ely & Meyerson, 2000; Fletcher, 2004). In this introduction, we begin with a discussion of transformational learning and change at the individual and organizational levels and go on...

  10. What’s Left? Marxism, literature and culture in the 21st century: special collection [of Open Library of Humanities]

    Rowcroft, Andrew
    The crisis and collapse of Marxism as the dominant paradigm of left intellectual thought undoubtedly remains one of the most seismic shifts in the ideological history of the late twentieth century. With the collapse of actually existing socialism in the Soviet Union, the pressure of postmodern concepts, and the rise of new social protest movements in the spheres of race, gender, and sexual orientation, Marxism came to appear the ‘signifier par excellence of theoretical hubris, redundancy and error’ (Pendakis and Szeman, 2014). In the twenty-first century however, precipitated by the succession of economic and ecological crisis scenarios, Marxist criticism has...

    Ruffino, Paolo
    A sophisticated critical take on contemporary game culture that reconsiders the boundaries between gamers and games.This book is not about the future of video games. It is not an attempt to predict the moods of the market, the changing profile of gamers, the benevolence or malevolence of the medium. This book is about those predictions. It is about the ways in which the past, present, and future notions of games are narrated and negotiated by a small group of producers, journalists, and gamers, and about how invested these narrators are in telling the story of tomorrow.This new title from Goldsmiths...

  14. Medievalism, politics and mass media: appropriating the Middle Ages in the twenty-first century

    Elliott, Andrew B. R.
    In 2001, George Bush provoked global uproar by describing the nascent War on Terror as a "Crusade". His comments, however, were welcomed by Al-Qaeda, who had long been describing Western powers in precisely the same terms, as modern Crusaders once again invading the Middle East. Ten years later in 2011, Anders Behring Breivik launched a tragic attack in Norway, killing 77 unarmed civilians, mostly teenagers. Breivik saw himself as a Templar Knight, a member of a group of knights allegedly resurrected in London in 2002 by one "Lionheart". Later investigations suggested that the blogger, Lionheart, might have had links to...

  16. A machine they're secretly building

    Westerside, Andrew
    From what might be a news desk, an office, a bedroom, a bunker under a mountain or a theatre, two people - reporters, senators, freedom fighters, or just... well... concerned citizens like you - think about what it is to speak up, speak out, blow the whistle and lift the veil. A Machine they're Secretly Building charts a course from the Top Secret secrets of WWI intelligence (via the moon, 1972's Chess World Championships, a disco in Oklahoma and the cafeteria at CERN) through to 9/11, the erosion of privacy, Edward Snowden and the terror of a future that might already...

  17. London on film

    Hirsch, Pam; O'Rourke, Chris
    This book, a collection of essays by expert film researchers and lecturers, contributes to the growing body of scholarship on cinematic cities by looking at how one city—London—has been represented on film. In particular, the collection examines how films about London have responded to social, material and political change in the city, either by capturing and so influencing how we think about London, or by acting as catalysts (intentionally or otherwise) for public debate. Individual essays explore films ranging from the earliest actualities of the late nineteenth century to contemporary blockbusters. The book will appeal to film scholars and students,...

  18. Social work and mental health. 6th Edition

    Golightley, Malcolm; Goemans, Robert
    This sixth edition is written with student social workers in mind who are studying for their professional qualifications. While the book is part of a series aimed at an undergraduate level there is no reason that this should not be of interest to postgraduates and students and practitioners of other disciplines. It is hard not to see social work as under attack in the current climate with the abolition of The College of Social Work, the development of a new regulator which the government did not intend to be independent, with arguments about the value of generic and specialist training, ‘Teaching...

  19. Reconstructing modernity: space, power and governance in mid-twentieth century British cities

    Greenhalgh, James
    Reconstructing modernity assesses the character of approaches to rebuilding British cities during the decades after the Second World War. It explores the strategies of spatial governance that sought to restructure society and looks at the cast of characters who shaped these processes. It challenges traditional views of urban modernism as moderate and humanist, shedding new light on the importance of the immediate post-war for the trajectory of urban renewal in the twentieth century. The book shows how local corporations and town planners in Manchester and Hull attempted to create order and functionality through the remaking of their decrepit Victorian cities....
