Holograms Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Holograms have been in the public eye for over a half-century, but their influences have deeper cultural roots. No other visual experience is quite like interacting with holograms; no other cultural product melds the technological sublime with magic and optimism in quite the same way. As holograms have evolved, they have left their audiences alternately fascinated, bemused, inspired or indifferent. From expressions of high science to countercultural art to consumer security, holograms have represented modernity, magic and materialism. Their most pervasive impact has been to galvanise hopeful technological dreams. Engineers, artists, hippies and hobbyists have played with, and dreamed about, holograms. This book explores how holograms found a place in distinct cultural settings. It is aimed at readers attracted to pop culture, visual studies and cultural history, scholars concerned with media history, fine art and material studies and, most of all, cross-disciplinary audiences intrigued about how this ubiquitous but still-mysterious visual medium grew up in our midst and became entangled in our culture. This book explores the technical attractions and cultural uses of the hologram, how they were shaped by what came before them, and how they have matured to shape our notional futures. Today, holograms are in our pockets (as identity documents) and in our minds (as gaming fantasies and 'faux hologram' performers). Why aren't they more often in front of our eyes?

Deadly Encounters Two Victorian Sensations Richard D. Altick "Altick's book vividly preserves an important and fascinating element of daily Victorian life. As such, it is the best sort of historical scholarship: the kind that puts us in close touch with a lost world and with people very much like ourselves."--Smithsonian "An engaging study in historical sociology."--Washington Post In July 1861 London newspapers excitedly reported two violent crimes, both the stuff of sensational fiction. One involved a retired army major, his beautiful mistress and her illegitimate child, blackmail and murder. In the other, a French nobleman was accused of trying to kill his son in order to claim the young man's inheritance. The press covered both cases with thoroughness and enthusiasm, narrating events in a style worthy of a popular novelist, and including lengthy passages of testimony. Not only did they report rumor as well as what seemed to be fact, they speculated about the credibility of witnesses, assessed character, and decided guilt. The public was enthralled. Richard D. Altick demonstrates that these two cases, as they were presented in the British press, set the tone for the Victorian "age of sensation." The fascination with crime, passion, and suspense has a long history, but it was in the 1860s that this fascination became the vogue in England. Altick shows that these crimes provided literary prototypes and authenticated extraordinary passion and incident in fiction with the "shock of actuality." While most sensational melodramas and novels were by lesser writers, authors of the stature of Dickens, Thackeray, George Eliot, Trollope, Hardy, and Wilkie Collins were also influenced by the spirit of the age and incorporated sensational elements in their work. Richard D. Altick is Regents Professor of English, Emeritus, at Ohio State University. He is the author of many other books, among them Victorian Studies in Scarlet; Victorian People and Ideas; The Shows of London, A Panoramic History, 1600-1862; and Paintings from Books: Art and Literature in Britain 1760-1900. 2000 | 176 pages | 6 x 9 | 17 illus.

Everyday Life in Early Soviet Russia INDIANA UNIVERSITY PRESS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

What did it mean to live as a subject of early Soviet modernity? In the 1920s and 1930s, in an environment where every element of daily life was supposed to be transformed by Soviet ideology, routine activities became ideologically significant, subject to debate and change. Drawing on original archival materials and theoretically informed, the essays in this volume examine ways in which Soviet citizens sought to align their private lives with the public nature of Soviet experience by taking the Revolution "inside." Topics discussed include the new sexuality, family loyalty during the Terror, the advertisement of Soviet commodities, the employment of domestic servants, children's toys and Pioneer camps, and narratives of self, ranging from diaries to secret police statements to monologues on the Soviet screen and stage. Bringing into dialogue essays by scholars in history, literature, sociology, art history, and film studies, this interdisciplinary volume contributes to the growing understanding of the Soviet Union as part of the history of modernity, rather than its totalitarian "other." Christina Kiaer is Associate Professor of Art History at Columbia University. She is author of The Socialist Objects of Russian Constructivism (forthcoming, 2005). Eric Naiman is Associate Professor of Russian and Comparative Literature at the University of California, Berkeley. He is the author of Sex in Public: The Incarnation of Early Soviet Ideology and of many articles on Soviet literature, history, and culture.

Outreach: Innovative Practices for Archives and Special Collections explores how archives of different sizes and types are reaching out to new potential users and increasing awareness of programs and collections. The book features twelve case studies that demonstrate ideas that can be transferred into many other settings. Some of the practices described in the case studies rely primarily on technology and the Web to interact with the public, while others are centered on face-to-face activities. The case studies featured are 1.The Oregon Archives Crawl: Engaging New Users and Advocates 2.Moved by the Spirit: Opportunistic Promotion of the Hamilton Family Seance Collection 3.Working Within the Law: Public Programming and Continuing Education 4.Staying Connected: Engaging Alumni and Students to Digitize the Carl "Pappy" Fehr Choral Music Collection 5."Pin"pointing Success: Assessing the Value of Pinterest and Historypin for Special Collections Outreach 6.Creating a New Learning Center: Designing a Space to Support Multiple Outreach Goals 7."Wikipedia is made of people!": Revelations from Collaborating with the World's Most Popular Encyclopedia 8.2 1 Revolutions: New Art from Old Objects 9.Happy Accidents and Unintended Consequences: How We Named Our Tribble 10.Navigating Nightingale: Creating an App Out of Archives 11.DIY History: Redesigning a Platform for a Transcription Crowdsourcing Initiative 12.Taking Preservation to the People: Educating the Public About Personal Digital Archiving All twelve case studies look at outreach as identifying the organization's intended audience, building new ways of reaching them, and helping the organization achieve its mission. Each also reflects a philosophy of experimentation that is perhaps the most critical ingredient for any organization interested in developing its own "innovative" practices. This volume will be useful to those working in archives and special collections as well as other cultural heritage organizations, and provides ideas ranging from those that require long-term planning and coordination to those that could be immediately implemented. It also provides students and educators in archives, library, and public history graduate programs a resource for understanding the variety of ways people conduct outreach in the field today and the kinds of strategies archivists are using to attract new users to collections.

Karl Bodmer's North American Prints - 2837510741

Karl Bodmer's North American Prints University of Nebraska Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In 1832-34, German scientist Prince Maximilian of Wied-Neuwied travelled the interior regions of North America to document what he regarded as vanishing cultures. Accompanying him was the twenty-two-year-old Swiss artist Karl Bodmer (1809-93), whom Maximilian employed to create a "faithful and vivid image" of America and its people. Bodmer's magnificent watercolor paintings and sketches from the expedition are famous; less known today are the resulting engravings and prints, which helped shape Europeans' impressions of Native Americans and of the United States. Upon their return to Europe, Maximilian began the difficult task of turning his field notes and journals into a readable account of his journey, while Bodmer concentrated on the equally complicated process of translating his drawings and watercolors into engravings to accompany the text.During the nearly ten-year effort it took to create "Travels in the Interior of North America, 1832-34", many of the eighty-one images underwent significant changes: Bodmer and his team of some thirty engravers altered landscapes and portraits based on Maximilian's input, modified imprecise inscriptions, and reengraved plates for future printings. "Karl Bodmer's North American Prints" is the first book to systematically and comprehensively document and interpret these changes to the prints. Each version - or state - is cataloged, discussed, and linked to one of the five distinct editions. Other issues, including coloring, paper, and dates, are examined. The two essays, eighty-one entries, and six appendixes contained in this volume elucidate all aspects of the project, with special attention to the number of legitimate and illegitimate reproductions the popular North American prints engendered and to Bodmer's post-expedition output as a printmaker.Brandon K. Ruud is a researcher at the Art Institute of Chicago and an independent editor; he previously served as the assistant curator at the Margre H. Durham Center for Western Studies at Joslyn Art Museum. Marsha V.Gallagher is the chief curator and Holland Curator of the Durham Center for Western Studies at Joslyn Art Museum. Ron Tyler is the director of the Texas State Historical Association and a professor of history at the University of Texas at Austin. J. Brooks Joyner is the director of Joslyn Art Museum.

Socialist Churches: Radical Secularization and the Preservation of the Past in Petrograd and Leningrad, 1918-1988 NORTHERN ILLINOIS UNIV PR

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

In Russia, legislation on the separation of church and state in early 1918 marginalized religious faith and raised pressing questions about what was to be done with church buildings. While associated with suspect beliefs, they were also regarded as structures with potential practical uses, and some were considered works of art. This engaging study draws on religious anthropology, sociology, cultural studies, and history to explore the fate of these "socialist churches," showing how attitudes and practices related to them were shaped both by laws on the preservation of monuments and anti-religious measures. Advocates of preservation, while sincere in their desire to save the buildings, were indifferent, if not hostile, to their religious purpose. Believers, on the other hand, regarded preservation laws as irritants, except when they provided leverage for use of the buildings by church communities. The situation was eased by the growing rapprochement of the Orthodox Church and Soviet state organizations after 1943, but not fully resolved until the Soviet Union fell apart. Based on abundant archival documentation, Catriona Kelly's powerful narrative portrays the human tragedies and compromises, but also the remarkable achievements, of those who fought to preserve these important buildings over the course of seven decades of state atheism. Socialist Churches will appeal to specialists, students, and general readers interested in church history, the history of architecture, and Russian art, history, and cultural studies.

Dice, Cards, Wheels A Different History of French Culture Thomas M. Kavanagh "With his connoisseur's knowledge (and manifest love) of the rules, and ruses, of games and the culture that they shape, Kavanagh makes a convincing case that gambling ought to be considered not a moral failing or individual pathology but a conspicuous, and uncommonly revelatory, practice that sets the social scene that it dramatizes."--Journal of Modern History Gambling has been a practice central to many cultures throughout history. In Dice, Cards, Wheels, Thomas M. Kavanagh scrutinizes the changing face of the gambler in France over a period of eight centuries, using gambling and its representations in literature as a lens through which to observe French culture. Kavanagh argues that the way people gamble tells us something otherwise unrecognized about the values, conflicts, and cultures that define a period or class. To gamble is to enter a world traced out by the rules and protocols of the game the gambler plays. That world may be an alternative to the established order, but the shape and structure of the game reveal indirectly hidden tensions, fears, and prohibitions. Drawing on literature from the Middle Ages to the present, Kavanagh reconstructs the figure of the gambler and his evolving personae. He examines, among other examples, Bodel's dicing in a twelfth-century tavern for the conversion of the Muslim world; Pascal's post-Reformation redefinition of salvation as the gambler's prize; the aristocratic libertine's celebration of the bluff; and Balzac's, Barbey d'Aurevilly's, and Bourget's nineteenth-century revisions of the gambler. Dice, Cards, Wheels embraces the tremendous breadth of French history and emerges as a broad-ranging study of the different forms of gambling, from the dice games of the Middle Ages to the digital slot machines of the twenty-first century, and what those games tell us about French culture and history. Thomas M. Kavanagh is Professor of French at Yale University. Among his previous books is Esthetics of the Moment: Literature and Art in the French Enlightenment.

Reading the Early Modern Passions Essays in the Cultural History of Emotion Edited by Gail Kern Paster, Katherine Rowe, and Mary Floyd-Wilson "Thanks to the collection as a whole, the complex history of the passions in the early modern mind and body will now take a more prominent place in our study of the literature, art, and music of the period."--MLR "Provides an engaging and extremely useful introduction to historicized explorations of the early modern passions through the lens of the creative arts."--Sixteenth Century Journal How translatable is the language of the emotions across cultures and time? What connotations of particular emotions, strongly felt in the early modern period, have faded or shifted completely in our own? If Western culture has traditionally held emotion to be hostile to reason and the production of scientific knowledge, why and how have the passions been lauded as windows to higher truths? Assessing the changing discourses of feeling and their relevance to the cultural history of affect, Reading the Early Modern Passions offers fourteen interdisciplinary essays on the meanings and representations of the emotional universe of Renaissance Europe in literature, music, and art. Many in the early modern era were preoccupied by the relation of passion to action and believed the passions to be a natural force requiring stringent mental and physical disciplines. In speaking to the question of the historicity and variability of emotions within individuals, several of these essays investigate specific emotions, such as sadness, courage, and fear. Other essays turn to emotions spread throughout society by contemporary events, such as a ruler's death, the outbreak of war, or religious schism, and discuss how such emotions have widespread consequences in both social practice and theory. Addressing anxieties about the power of emotions; their relation to the public good; their centrality in promoting or disturbing an individual's relation to God, to monarch, and to fellow human beings, the authors also look at the ways emotion serves as a marker or determinant of gender, ethnicity, and humanity. Contributors to the volume include Zirka Filipczak, Victoria Kahn, Michael Schoenfeldt, Bruce Smith, Richard Strier, and Gary Tomlinson. Gail Kern Paster is Director of the Folger Shakespeare Library and the author of The Body Embarrassed: Drama and the Disciplines of Shame in Early Modern England. Katherine Rowe is Associate Professor of English at Bryn Mawr College. She is the author of Dead Hands: Fictions of Agency, Renaissance to Modern.

Painting the Hortus deliciarum PNSY

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

"Between 1170 and 1190 in Alsace, Abbess Herrad compiled for her canonesses an elaborate manuscript, the Hortus deliciarum, which combined resplendent images with quotations from more than fifty texts to portray a history of the Christian church across time and through eternity. Destroyed in a bombing during the 1870 siege of Strasbourg, Herradżs lavishly illuminated manuscript was one of the earliest works created by a woman expressly for other women, the nuns training at the Hohenbourg abbey. In this close study of the art and history of the Hortus deliciarum, Danielle Joyner shows how the book reflected twelfth-century concerns, such as emphasizing a historical interpretation of the Bible and reconciling scientific and theological accounts of the cosmos. She analyzes the images, texts, ideas, and processes at work in the manuscript and offers insights into how it configured a history of the Church in the temporal world as a guide to achieving eternal salvation. By tracing the flexibility and efficacy of the multiple visions employed in the manuscript, Joyner explores how the Hortus deliciarum crafted a deeper understanding of the integral role of time in medieval constructions of history, the cosmos, and humanityżs place within them. Scholars and students of art history, medieval and early modern studies, religion, gender, and the history of the book will find Joynerżs work especially valuable, compelling, and provoking.

Masterpieces of Soviet Painting and Sculpture Unicorn Press Publishing Group

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This book is devoted to paintings and sculpture of the Soviet period, so from 1920 to 1991, a period with a unique place in art history in its own country and internationally. It embraces dozens of stylistic tendencies - including Socialist Realism, Impressionism and Severe Style - that gave birth to and replaced each other at a pace unknown in previous centuries.Clearly divided into two parts, the first two chapters deal with Soviet Art, the latter two with Soviet Sculpture. Among the select group of artists featured are Vasily Baksheyev, the twentieth-century 'custodian' of the Levitanesque lyrical landscape and Vitold Bialynitsky-Birulia, who remained loyal to the Moderne to the end of his days. The traditions of the Moscow School of Painting are represented by Piotr Konchalovsky and Igor Grabar. There follows a brilliant constellation of figures in post-war art - Victor Gavrilov, Alexei and Sergei Tkachev, Vladimir Stozharov and Tair Salakhov - all inheriting from their predecessors an accomplished mastery for experimentation, bold, uninhibited and profoundly human, thus proving the inexhaustible potential and vitality of the Moscow School of Painting.The chapters on sculpture augment an art form that for decades took second place to painting in studies of the Soviet oeuvre. We see here how in addition to producing large public monuments, Soviet sculptors created a more personal body of work in their studios, using stone, wood, bronze and plaster. Accomplished sculptors of the period, and featured here, include Aleksandr Matveev, Vera Mukhina, Sergei Konenkov and Elena Yanson-Manizer. Russian museums have recently started to rediscover their collections, and the Tretyakov now exhibits sculpture throughout its Soviet art galleries.

This collection brings together leading experts in a number of fields of the humanities to offer a new perspective on the classical tradition. Drawing on reception studies, philology and early modern studies, the essays explore the interaction between literary criticism and the multiple cultural contexts in which texts were produced, discovered, appropriated and translated. The intersection of Realpolitik and textual criticism, poetic and musical aesthetics, and authority and self-fashioning all come under scrutiny. The canonical Latin writers and their subsequent reception form the backbone of the volume, with a focus on the European Renaissance. It thus marks a reconnection between classical and early modern studies and the concomitant rapprochement of philological and cultural historical approaches to texts and other works of art. This book will be of interest to scholars in classics, Renaissance studies, comparative literature, English, Italian and art history.
