The New Bibliopolis: French Book Collectors And The Culture Of Print, 1880-1914, Peter Schulman 2010 Old Dominion University

The New Bibliopolis: French Book Collectors And The Culture Of Print, 1880-1914, Peter Schulman

World Languages and Cultures Faculty Publications

In an age of the Kindle and e-books, how refreshing and meaningful to read Willa Z. Silverman’s fascinating study, which so eloquently describes a time when printed books not only mattered but were treasured, sought after, and treated almost as lovers at times. Far from being a treatise on monomaniacal, “nebbishy” bookworms, Silverman sheds light on a facet of Belle E´poque history hitherto underdeveloped and introduces us to a colorful, eccentric, artistic, and fanatically driven set of bibliophiles bent on creating a haven for the book, a “bibliopolis,” or as one of Silverman’s subjects, Robert de Montesquiou ...


John Cleave's Weekly Police Gazette (1834-6), Francis Place, And The Pragmatics Of The Unstamped Press, Edward Jacobs 2010 Old Dominion University

John Cleave's Weekly Police Gazette (1834-6), Francis Place, And The Pragmatics Of The Unstamped Press, Edward Jacobs

English Faculty Publications

John Cleave (c.1790-c.1847) was the editor and publisher of, among other works, Cleaves Weekly Police Gazette (1834-6; hereafter WPG), which was by most accounts the best-selling unstamped newspaper of the so-called "War of the Unstamped Press" in the 1830s, one of the first unstamped papers to adopt a broadsheet format like stamped papers, and one of the first to mix political news with coverage of non-political events like sensational crimes and strange occurrences. As Joel Wiener and Patricia Hollis note, less is known about Cleave than about most of the other major figures in the unstamped movement, like ...

The Propaganda Of Vespasian, Jennifer Wright 2010 Western Oregon University

The Propaganda Of Vespasian, Jennifer Wright

Student Theses, Papers and Projects (History)

The reign of Emperor Vespasian began after his military victory in the civil war of 68-69 A.D., he claimed the imperial throne without the majority of the senatorial elite's support, and needed to legitimize his right to rule in order to secure his position. Political propaganda promoted his military victories, advocated his humble origins, popularized that he had brought peace to Rome, and earned him favorable accounts in the writings of the historians he funded. Sculptural propaganda promoted Vespasian's military victories, expressed his noble virtues, depicted how he began the Flavian legacy, how he distanced himself from ...

Fundamentally Danish?: The Muhammad Cartoon Crisis As Transitional Drama, Heiko Henkel 2010 Copenhagen University

Fundamentally Danish?: The Muhammad Cartoon Crisis As Transitional Drama, Heiko Henkel

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

A closer look at the Muhammad cartoon crisis illuminates some of the key issues that were, and continue to be, at stake for the various actors in the public contestations over the legitimate place of Muslims (and the Islamic tradition) in Danish society. Using a conceptual framework developed by Axel Honneth, I suggest in this article that the cartoon crisis is part of an ongoing struggle for recognition in Denmark, through which the terms by which Muslims residing in Denmark are recognized as legitimate citizens/residents of Danish society are negotiated—and on which Muslims may recognize the demands of ...


Epistemic Islamophobia And Colonial Social Sciences, Ramón Grosfoguel 2010 University of California - Berkeley

Epistemic Islamophobia And Colonial Social Sciences, Ramón Grosfoguel

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This article explores how epistemic racism shapes contemporary discussions on Islamophobia. Epistemic Racism is an underestimated aspect of racism. The first part is a discussion about epistemic racism in the world-system. The second part is on the Western male hegemonic identity politics and the fundamentalist responses to it. The third part is on epistemic Islamophobia and the social sciences.


Islamophobia: A French Specificity In Europe?, Vincent Gessier 2010 Research Institute on the Arabic and Muslim World

Islamophobia: A French Specificity In Europe?, Vincent Gessier

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

This paper argues that France is not more Islamophobic than other European countries. An ‘institutional Islamophobia’ or ‘State Islamophobia’ doesn’t really exist. However, the relation toward Islam is complex and determined by the “missionary mind” which persists by wishing to emancipate Muslims from their religion, perceived as an archaic, obscurantist and despotic phenomenon. French society specificity expresses itself in the tendency to ‘ideologize’ Islam. In front of the ‘danger’ of the political Islam (fundamentalism, radical Islam, Islamoterrorism…), French institutions would like to promote their own conception of a ‘regenerated Islam’ (comparable to the ‘regenerated Judaism’ during the Third Republic ...


Terror And The Politics Of Containment: Analysing The Discourse Of The ‘War On Terror’ And Its Workings Of Power, Farish A. Noor 2010 Nanyang Technological University, Singapore

Terror And The Politics Of Containment: Analysing The Discourse Of The ‘War On Terror’ And Its Workings Of Power, Farish A. Noor

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Since 11 September 2001, the discourse of the ‘war on terror’ has become one of the most over-used and hegemonic discourses that has shaped domestic politics and international relations worldwide. This paper focuses on the workings of the discourse of ‘anti-terrorism’ and its linkages to power structures and the institutions that are supported by them. It will look at how the discourse of the ‘war on terror’ has been used by the governments of Southeast Asia and Western Europe in particular in relation to oppositional forces, both legal and extra-legal; and its wider implications on the development of democracy and ...


Unconscious Islamophobia, Gema Martín-Muñoz 2010 Universidad Autonoma de Madrid

Unconscious Islamophobia, Gema Martín-Muñoz

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Our historical relationship with Islam has accumulated a whole series of negative perceptions dominated by prejudices and stereotypes. We have internalized a reductionist and monolithic image of “us” and of “them” (the two “cultures”). It is as if these were closed universes in which millions of human beings are designated as “Western” or “Muslims” and represent alien and even antagonistic cultures. This concept of “cultures” in relations between the Muslim world and “us” is a product of a Western construct in which “Islam” and therefore all individuals within Islam are fictitiously represented, labelled ideologically as a dominant global force, in ...

Running On Full: The Story Of Ruth And Ruby Crawford, Neil Wilkinson 2010 Kennesaw State University

Running On Full: The Story Of Ruth And Ruby Crawford, Neil Wilkinson

KSU Press Legacy Project

"Running of Full" is a well-written account of twin sisters, Ruth and Ruby Crawford, who in their long lives made marks in every field of endeavor they undertook. Through the proverbial glass ceilings in law, banking, accounting, they rose to be among the first women bank officers in the country. Their stewardship and devotion to community and national causes, like the Humane Society, are legend. Often called "the 24-hour Crawfords," Ruth and Ruby were known as much for their prodigious energy as they were for their wit and charm.
