The second half of the ninth century is a particularly cogent era for monastic exemption privileges. 1 This chapter explains the promise and growth of papal protection during this period, when it became a defining feature of monastic exemption privileges. As a coveted ambition for many medieval monasteries, this valuable commodity introduced a physical, ideological, and rhetorical dimension into the political exchange, shaping what Egon Boshof has rightly characterised as a traditio Romana (or ‘Roman tradition’). 2

Chapter 6 Mary Wroth and hermaphroditic circulation Paul Salzman I want to begin by rehearsing a story about Mary Wroth’s publication of Urania that will be familiar to many people, but that I recount here in order to set the scene for an analysis of the circulation and recirculation of her vituperative poetic exchange with Edward Denny. Among a number of thinly veiled depictions of Jacobean court scandals in Urania, Wroth gave an account of the violent responses of Edward Denny to accusations that his daughter Honora, married to James Hay, Viscount Carlisle

Emphasising the bi-​national commitment and the value attached to the renewal of the existing educational exchange relationship matched the government’s declaration of shared foreign policy goals and its cultivation of the US alliance. As the minister for External Affairs in that government, Paul Hasluck fervently espoused the Domino Theory, and was a keen supporter, even urger, of military intervention in Vietnam.5 On 7 August, just weeks before the signing of the new agreement, the US Congress had passed the Gulf of Tonkin Resolution, which effectively gave President

New institutions and markets have developed in a number of directions, including private equity, money market funds, exchange-traded funds, sovereign wealth funds and the shadow banking system.

Chapter 4 Betting in the dark Instead of offering some protection against the uncertainties of life, money has itself become the cause of new uncertainties. Not only is there uncertainty over the duration of the world depression, we do not know when or if inflation will ever return. We can only guess what will be the divergence in the exchange rates between the dollar and other currencies. Oil prices in 1990 are anyone’s bet. At a time when the most secure jobs are apt suddenly to vanish and still more people are made redundant, the capacity of the monetary

for the Rome Treaty of 1957, which set up the European Economic Community (EEC) and anticipated the creation of a common market that transcended political frontiers among the founding Six – France, Germany, Italy, Belgium, the Netherlands and Luxembourg. Behind all the European rhetoric was an exchange of concessions – by the French to the Germans, and by the Germans to the French. France agreed progressively to open its market to German manufactures, Germany progressively to allow French farm products to compete in the German market, while both agreed to develop a

Chapter 5 Wall Street and other casinos History and the media between them have spread the idea far and wide that Wall Street – or perhaps stock exchanges generally – are the weakest point in the international financial system. If there is going to be trouble in the world market economy, that is where it will start. Whether this is a correct reading of history and the right conclusion to draw from more recent developments is the question that will be examined in this chapter. What is abundantly clear is that opinions on this question vary widely. At one extreme

-Lüneburg, Electoral Saxony, Mecklenburg, and Schleswig-Holstein. Mobility and translation Anna of Denmark’s life, as with many of her royal female contemporaries, was one of mobility. This necessitated her negotiation of multiple ethnic, national, social, and religious customs, traditions, and beliefs. In the examination of Anna’s agency at the multiple Stuart courts then, this book is broadly concerned with processes and patterns of transcultural exchange, and with the uses and meanings of identifying labels. It confirms that Anna’s experiences at the Danish-Norwegian court

The dynamic processes of knowledge production in archaeology and elsewhere in the humanities and social sciences are increasingly viewed within the context of negotiation, cooperation and exchange, as the collaborative effort of groups, clusters and communities of scholars. Shifting focus from the individual scholar to the wider social contexts of her work, this volume investigates the importance of informal networks and conversation in the creation of knowledge about the past, and takes a closer look at the dynamic interaction and exchange that takes place between individuals, groups and clusters of scholars in the wider social settings of scientific work. Various aspects of and mechanisms at work behind the interaction and exchange that takes place between the individual scholar and her community, and the creative processes that such encounters trigger, are critically examined in eleven chapters which draw on a wide spectrum of examples from Europe and North America: from early modern antiquarians to archaeological societies and practitioners at work during the formative years of the modern archaeological disciplines and more recent examples from the twentieth century. The individual chapters engage with theoretical approaches to scientific creativity, knowledge production and interaction such as sociology and geographies of science, and actor-network theory (ANT) in their examination of individual–collective interplay. The book caters to readers both from within and outside the archaeological disciplines; primarily intended for researchers, teachers and students in archaeology, anthropology, classics and the history of science, it will also be of interest to the general reader.
