  1. Goldfish

    Roos, Anna Marie
    This book will emphasise three themes about goldfish through history: their ubiquity and ambiguity, their status as a moving target, and their role in unforeseen developments. Although their ubiquity and seeming ordinariness has meant goldfish have not been subject to historical study, interest in the cultural history of fish is historiographically timely. Jackson has recently published the first study of fish in two-­‐dimensional art to illustrate their religious, social, political, and economic significance (2011), and there is an ongoing NWO study of early modern ichthyology (Smith, A New History of Fishes, 2015). There have also been specialist studies on fish in early modern scientific...

  2. Film

    Jones, Sarah
    This book looks at the movie industry and at the labour intensive but fascinating process of making a feature film. It examines each stage in the production of a film, from initial idea through to the final cut and screening, and highlights the main activities that take place along the way. The book not only looks at the work of prominent people in the film world, such as directors and actors, but also describes the equally important but less high profile contributions of the gaffer, best boy and key grip. Part of a series dealing with various aspects of the media,...

  4. Understanding community: politics, policy and practice (Second edition)

    Somerville, Peter
    This substantially revised edition of a highly topical text draws upon theory from Marx and Bourdieu to offer a clearer understanding of community in capitalist society. The book takes a more critical look at the literature on community, community development and the politics of community, and applies this critical approach to themes introduced in the first edition on economic development, learning, health and social care, housing, and policing, taking into account the changes in policy that have taken place, particularly in the UK, since the first edition was written. It will be a valuable resource for researchers and students of...

  5. (In)visible cinemas: Reusing archival footage in Latin American cinema [special issue of New Cinemas: Journal of Contemporary Film]

    Tadeo Fuica, Beatriz; Barrow, Sarah
    Since the turn of the millennium, academic interest in Latin American cinema has grown tremendously and “New Cinemas” have been identified throughout the continent (see Nagib, 2003; Aguilar, 2008; Page, 2009; Martin-Jones and Montañez, 2009; Andermann, 2012; Andermann and Fernández Bravo, 2013; Barrow, 2014). This label has usually referred to films made within the last twenty years, and to signal the presence of lesser-known cinemas in international distribution and exhibition outlets such as film festivals, microcines and cineclubs. It has also been used to refer to an upsurge of production which might share specific contexts and aesthetic quests. Research on...

  7. Ireland: arrivals and departures

    Brewster, Scott; Huber, Werner
    A decade ago, with its economy and cultural confidence surging, and with new political alignments possible in the North, Ireland seemed to have ‘arrived’ on the world stage by conventional measures of success. Yet the recent financial storms and accompanying social pressures are a reminder of the challenges as well as the opportunities of leaving behind old certainties and becoming ‘global’. It has equally meant reappraising values, attitudes and practices seemingly consigned to the past, and questioning the verities that have driven the heady but uneven transformation of modern Ireland. This volume explores the Irish experience, both within the contemporary...

  10. Devised performance in Irish theatre: histories and contemporary practice

    O'Gorman, Siobhán; McIvor, Charlotte
    Devised Performance in Irish Theatre: Histories and Contemporary Practice is the first collection to focus exclusively on devised theatre throughout the island of Ireland by bringing together a range of perspectives from both academics and practitioners. It situates the histories and contemporary practice of devised performance in the Irish theatre, responding to a decisive shift in the working approach of several prominent emerging companies including ANU Productions, Brokentalkers, THEATREclub, and THISISPOPBABY.

  13. Foreign devils: exile and host nation in Hollywood's golden age

    Gergely, Gabor
    Foreign Devils investigates representations of exile in Hollywood cinema from 1930 to 1956 through the films of Peter Lorre, Béla Lugosi, and Conrad Veidt. This book dispels the assumption that by virtue of its hegemonic, reactionary, and exclusionary modes of representation, otherness is excluded from or only obliquely alluded to in classical Hollywood cinema. This book contends that Hollywood uses European émigré actors to speak of the experience of exile and the often-futile exilic attempts at integration into the host nation. This original, cross-disciplinary study incorporates a number of research interests in film studies – specifically Hollywood cinema, exile and émigré...

  14. EU cohesion policy in practice: what does it achieve?

    Bachtler, John; Begg, Iain; Charles, David; Polverari, Laura
    EU Cohesion policy, along with support for agriculture and rural development, is one of the main items of EU spending. As such, the performance of the policy has come under increasing scrutiny. Perhaps surprisingly, however, past attempts to assess the effectiveness of the EU’s have proved to be highly ambivalent. This book examines the long-term achievements of Cohesion policy from 1989 to 2012 and draws out the main policy implications. Originally undertaken for the European Commission by the authors, this major longitudinal study adopts an innovative approach to assessing the effectiveness and achievements of this policy, building on case studies...

    Aberg, Alan; Lewis, Carenza

  16. Snuff: real death and screen media

    Jackson, Neil; Kimber, Shaun; Walker, Johnny; Watson, Thomas Joseph
    The phenomenon of so-called 'snuff movies' (films that allegedly document real acts of murder, specifically designed to 'entertain' and sexually arouse the spectator) represents a fascinating socio-cultural paradox. At once unproven, yet accepted by many, as emblematic of the very worst extremes of pornography and horror, moral detractors have argued that the mere idea of snuff constitutes the logical (and terminal) extension of generic forms that are dependent primarily upon the excitement, stimulation and, ultimately, corruption of the senses. Snuff: Real Death and Screen Media brings together scholars from film and media studies to assess the longevity of one of...

  17. Archival afterlives. Life, death, and knowledge-making in early modern British scientific and medical archives

    Roos, Anna Marie; Keller, Vera; Yale, Beth
    This conference edition explores the posthumous fortunes of scientific and medical archives in early modern Britain. If early modern natural philosophers claimed all knowledge as their province, theirs was a paper empire. In a series of essays, this book explores how did these (often) disorderly collections of paper come to be 'the archives of the Scientific Revolution.' Inspired by calls for the wholesale reform of natural philosophy and schooled in humanist note-taking practices, early naturalists generated correspondence, reading notes, experimental and observational reports, and drafts of treatises intended for circulation in manuscript or further replication in print. In our own day,...

  18. Formulation in action: applying psychological theory to clinical practice

    Dawson, Dave; Moghaddam, Nima
    When people seek psychological support, formulation is the theory-driven methodology used by many practitioners to guide identification of the processes, mechanisms, and patterns of behaviour that appear to be contributing to the presenting difficulties. However, the process of formulating – or applying psychological theory to practice – can often seem unclear. In this volume, we present multiple demonstrations of formulation in action – written by applied psychologists embedded in clinical training, research, and practice. The volume covers a range of contemporary approaches to formulation and therapy that have not been considered in extant works, and includes unique sections offering critical counter-perspectives and...
