Globes, englobing powers, and Blake's archaeologies of the present

primal scene in vivid detail, as a past and present reality, creating a powerful archaeology of the present. This represents the institution of the social, its ‘generative principles’, in ways that, to quote Claude Lefort out of context, make ‘it possible to conceptualise … the articulation of its dimensions, and the relations established within it between [genders], groups, and individuals, between practices, beliefs, and representations

Writing popular culture in colonial Punjab, 1885– 1905

, especially in ‘exotic’ contexts, has become part of the critical canon. However, the anthropological debate has offered a larger epistemological challenge, which has failed fully to permeate branches of literary and historical colonial scholarship, partially due to the difficulty in labelling early amateur anthropologists and ethnographers. The writers under consideration here have been of minor interest within the fields of archaeology, South Asian studies and English literary fiction. At the fringes of different spheres of

Monuments, memorials and their visibility on the metropole and periphery

creation of such colonial lieux de mémoire were not restricted to architecture and sculptural monuments. Visual representations (illustrations and photographs) of these artefacts were reproduced and disseminated by scholarly organisations, such as archaeological societies; by administrative bodies, such as city councils and town planners; and by commercial agents, such as

The eighteenth and nineteenth centuries

century. The second was the development within antiquarianism of natural historical and archaeological studies. Archaeology, although still within the family of antiquarian study, was emerging as a discipline in its own right, particularly with the founding in 1770 of the journal Archaeologia. Finally, the county history grew in terms of both output and size. What Dugdale and Thoroton had achieved in a single folio volume now multiplied into two, four and as many as twelve to a county. Although quantity was not necessarily paralleled by quality, it would be churlish to

in Writing local history

hunting and farming skills may have provided him with something wanted by others, and thus with something to fight over. We shall probably never know why he first began to organize himself for war. Yet even before he was learning to speak in a recognizable language, early man was appreciating the need to communicate, whether for peaceful or for warlike purposes. Anthropological and archaeological research suggests that before speech (organized language) all communication was visual. Primitive man communicated non-verbally via gestures and signals although sounds – cries

Total history and the H-Blocks in film

-­Blocks. ‘They felt fairly in control of the military campaign, but not of the Hunger Strike.’5 During the dirty protests, perhaps the most unknowable and extraordinary incident of the Troubles, life within and without the prison was disconnected, and in a radical way. The modes of resistance deployed by as many as four hundred nonconforming prisoners created a non-­modern social formation that was fiercely different from anything envisaged by dissident subjects operating beyond the prison walls. Through the hunger strike, those within the prison would attempt to disseminate

Its concern was with how the mnemonic life of individuals is shaped by its immediate social contexts, and with how this shaping is related to the development and maintenance of mnemonic cultures in relatively small-scale social groups – families or monastic communities, rather than nations or the universal church.

Negotiating curatorial challenges in the Zanzibar Museum

comparative examples and theoretical frameworks, but analysis of colonial museums must acknowledge their specific social, cultural and environmental contexts. The period coinciding with the development of the Zanzibar Museum – between the First and Second World Wars – is particularly important for several reasons. In the museum context, museums in Britain were becoming increasingly professionalised and the Museums Association was carving out a niche for itself. The relationship between colonial museums – particularly those

Palimpsests of genre, palimpsests of violence

an age of increasing urbanisation and global flows. The writer Julio Llamazares, whose novels often focus on the rural Leonese landscape of his childhood, has said that Spain is an urban country with a rural memory. 1 Sánchez--Cabezudo’s film similarly provides an archaeology of Spain’s rural memory, where the rural emerges as traces of a violent and monstrous nightmare, which haunt the urban consciousness.
