Representing the Chartist crowd in 1848
Jo Briggs

be incorporated. For Plotz, literary texts can ‘record features of the era’s crowds that no other historical sources can supply’.64 It may in fact have been images, namely Kilburn’s daguerreotypes, which had this special relationship with the Chartist crowd in 1848. However, rather than privileging the daguerreotype above other forms of representation, this chapter has shown that the daguerreotype found a specific resonance with the crowd precisely because it was enmeshed within a broad network of images and texts, which worked together to form a grid within which

the leading protagonists in the Golzow saga. Jürgen, whom the Junges had known since he was a child of seven, was terminally ill with cancer and indeed died a few weeks later, still only in his early fifties. This had clearly been a difficult visit for the Junges, but hearing them talk so movingly about Jürgen and his contribution to the Golzow films was a poignant reminder of the very special relationship that can develop between filmmakers and their subjects in this type of work. Participants in such long-stay projects become in a very real sense members of the

She suggests that national identity, and national culture, is formed out of an accumulation of regional identities and cultures: ‘The English define their identity from their village, town or city.

daily life there – the funds she receives, the women she shares a room with, her special relationship with her old Offenburg friend, Fanny Maier, with whom she goes shopping for food. According Tante Leonie [ 129 ] [ 130 ] to Donna F. Ryan, discipline at the hotels was fairly lenient, and residents could come and go quite freely each day. A good deal of time would have been spent trying to assemble the necessary documents, from the United States consulate but also from other consulates (for transit visas) and from the prefecture in Marseilles. This involved

're Already Dead’ (1984) comments on the ‘Special Relationship’ between Thatcher and Reagan (see Figure 6.10 ). The figure of Thatcher is shrunk to that of a baby, being nursed by Ronald Reagan, who is portrayed as a founding American mother with the talons of a bird of prey, shitting on the world. 29 Figure 6.10 Gee Vaucher, Insert, Crass’ 7” single

unsuccessful competitor in the British Institution competition. His special relationship with the Prince Regent antedated his career as a painter. His royal patron who had been a close friend of Dighton’s mother, had bought him a commission in the army when he was only seventeen. Dighton’s military career was short-lived, for two years later, in 1812, he had returned to civilian life and was exhibiting genre

The analogous relic

in its particularly literal relation to analogous sanctity, to its concentration of particular holy localities. 36 The classic Roman saint of Catholic Reform was linked to a specific locus through martyrdom and burial: places throughout the city were infused with sanctity through blood-stained soil. 37 But in Naples sanctity worked otherwise. The Treasury Chapel sought a special relationship between saints and place, Naples as ‘whole’ (‘Naples’ as redeemable). Thereby it brought that ‘whole’ into view. Thus the relationship between saint and place via the relic

Relics and gender

. 2 The Eucharist and the relic enjoy a complementary and contradictory coupling. While women’s special relationship with the Eucharist has been energetically explored, their relationship with relics remains neglected. This is particularly true with regard to enclosed female orders’ deployment of relics beyond the confines of their own institutions – that is, in relation to the dynamic between convent, relic, and city. Convents were porous, as much scholarship shows. But that porosity tends to be conceived from outside in, in terms of dynastic interests enclosing

martyrdom and burial, in Naples the shed blood of saints assumed a role detached from the place of martyrdom or even the place of burial to articulate a special relationship with the city through its miraculous transformation at critical junctures. Naples’ saintly bloods were prodigiously rivalrous. St John the Baptist’s blood, conserved at the monasteries of San Giovanni a Carbonara, San Gregorio Armeno, and Santa Maria Donnarómita, was particularly celebrated in Naples, second only to San Gennaro’s, until its decline in the later seventeenth century.

– largely aristocratic – Seggi themselves. Through processional movement, the participation of diverse institutions and their investment in the Treasury Chapel occurred, was rendered legible, and was transformed into a civic, aristocratic, and hierarchical order. And the claim of a special relationship between city and saints was built into the substance of that order. Through the cult of San Gennaro and his urban processions, through miracles in their very seats, and in conjunction with their key role in the election of new protector saints, the Seggi consolidated their
