Representing naval manhood in the British Empire, 1870–1918
Author: Mary A. Conley

The later nineteenth century was a time of regulation and codification, which was part of the Victorian search for reliability and respectability. This book examines the intersection between empire, navy, and manhood in British society from 1870 to 1918. It sheds light upon social and cultural constructions of working-class rather than elite masculinities by focusing on portrayals of non-commissioned naval men, the 'lower deck', rather than naval officers. Through an analysis of sources that include courts-martial cases, sailors' own writings, and the HMS Pinafore, the book charts new depictions of naval manhood during the Age of Empire. It was a period of radical transformation of the navy, intensification of imperial competition, democratisation of British society, and advent of mass culture. The book argues that popular representations of naval men increasingly reflected and informed imperial masculine ideals in Victorian and Edwardian Britain. It explains how imperial challenges, technological changes and domestic pressures transformed the navy and naval service from the wake of the Crimean War to the First World War. How female-run naval philanthropic organisations domesticated the reputation of naval men by refashioning the imagery of the drunken debauched sailor through temperance and evangelical campaigns is explained. The naval temperance movement was not singular in revealing the clear class dimensions in the portrayal of naval manhood. The book unveils how the British Bluejacket as both patriotic defender and dutiful husband and father stood in sharp contrast to the stereotypic image of the brave but bawdy tar of the Georgian navy.

academia leading to BAME and gender pay gaps, institutionalised discrimination in recruitment and promotion, and the playing-out of middle-class hegemony, the consolidation of those positions by acts that are intended to be radically transformational is indeed a contradiction – one intensified by austerity and the associated cuts to jobs and benefits and the decline in average real wages across the UK. These contradictions are always problematic and are held open (to varying degrees) and in tension in our working relations with students, co-researchers and research

to raise some questions about the ways in which images are encountered, perceived, understood and (often) questioned as a result of the radical transformation of visual culture within digital contexts. This will involve attention to aspects of the changing culture of photography, since it seems to me that, in engaging with the implications of the digital, media scholarship can benefit considerably from a closer, comparative attention to what has happened to photography as it has become transformed over the last fifteen years or so. This transformation has clearly

Rethinking patriarchy
Katie Barclay

patriarchy as a system for organising gender and social relationships explains women’s continued subordination over time, despite historical change in many other areas of life. is study demonstrated how this happened where, despite some radical transformations in how people conceptualised the world around them, women’s social status remained unchanged over two centuries. is process was not about unchecked male force or an overt strategy by a group of men to keep women oppressed, but rather that the belief in women’s subordination to their husbands was so deeply ingrained

overview of the Greek left, before focusing on the eventful period of 2009–2015, during which the Greek political system underwent a series of radical transformations.

of Turner’s production, leading him to provide one of the most adequate pictorial responses to the challenge initiated by Burke’s Enquiry. One which implied much more than a simple assimilation of the topoi to which the Enquiry had contributed, but involved a radical transformation of the pictorial medium, and of its processes in particular, in order to allow it to rival poetry in suggestiveness and emotive power. I also argue that this transformation of the pictorial medium was as much the culmination and outcome of the experimental processes that had been set in

It examines why the shift in meaning occurred by placing it into the context of legal and political changes in Britain concerning the rights of children, and the impact of these changes on the construction of scientific studies of children.
