Lines that Divide

Historical Archaeologies of Race, Class, and Gender

The division of human society by race, class, and gender has been addressed by scholars in many of the social sciences. Now historical archaeologists are demonstrating how material culture can be used to examine the processes that have erected boundaries between people. Drawing on case studies from around the world, the essays in this volume highlight diverse moments in the rise of capitalist civilization both in Western Europe and its colonies. In the first section, the contributors address the dynamics of the racial system that emerged from European colonialism. They show how archaeological remains shed light on the institution of slavery in the American Southeast, on the treatment of Native Americans by Mormon settlers, and on the color line in colonial southern Africa. The next group of articles considers how gender was negotiated in nineteenth-century New York City, in colonial Ecuador, and on Jamaican coffee plantations. A final section focuses on the issue of class division by examining the built environment of eighteenth-century Catalonia and material remains and housing from early industrial Massachusetts. These essays constitute an archaeology of capitalism and clearly demonstrate the importance of history in shaping cultural consciousness. Arguing that material culture is itself an active agent in the negotiation of social difference, they reveal the ways in which historical archaeologists can contribute to both the definition and dismantling of the lines that divide.

Dance and Its Music in America, 1528-1789

"Beginning with Toya Indian dances in Florida and the Matachines dance-drama in the Southwest, and moving to ordination balls, pantomimes, Black election celebrations and country dances called "Burgoyne's Surrender" and "Washington's Resignation," this study presents dance in the North American lands that would become the United States of America as a powerful yet ephemeral medium of communication and social dynamics. It integrates the history of dance and its music into cultural, commercial, and aesthetic aspects of life in the New World, both for established native societies and newcomers." "Special topics include dance as a metaphor and preparation for battle, Yankee peddlers of dance and their publications, French connections, Spanish influences, dance on board ships, in religion and in the military, and Negro jigs, the Virginia Reel, and mumming traditions. Included is the colorful history of theatrical dancers who performed on the boards from Portsmouth to Charleston and competitive dancers in early versions of today's Scottish games. The core of the book is a state-by-state narrative of dance and dance music in each colony or territory from Maine to California. Thoroughly documented with extensive period quotations, illustrations, footnotes, bibliography and a detailed index, this study integrates much new information with a new way of looking at dance as a phenomenon that was both re-creative and manipulative, commercial and personal, and pleasurable and painful to those who participated."--BOOK JACKET.

Development Cooperation in Muslim Countries

Culture and development cooperation are inextricably linked. For development cooperation to be both successful and sustainable, cultural concepts need to be taken into account. Against the background of an increasingly politicized discourse about Islam, GTZ has stressed positive potential elements in Muslim societies. Covering a broad range of topics from good governance and conflict resolution to gender and girls education as well as the conservation of natural resources, this book analyzes the limits and potentials of development cooperation in Muslim countries. Many examples from the field help to underline the theoretical analysis. Over and above that, the book is a reflection on the external influence on political, social, and institutional change that development cooperation always entails. The book also makes a contribution to a much needed dialogue with partner countries, and shows that development cooperation can be an important actor in furthering this dialogue.

The Presence of God in the World

A Contribution to Postmodern Christology Based on the Theologies of Paul Tillich and Karl Rahner

Author: Steven G. Ogden

Publisher: Peter Lang

ISBN: 9783039113033

Category: Religion

Page: 325

View: 8754

The book addresses the problem of the presence of God in the world. Its thesis is that the presence of God can be affirmed, if presence is understood in relation to absence. Furthermore, the experience of God in the world is ambiguous and consists of presence and absence. The idea of interpreting experience in this way is not new, but the application of this perspective to the theologies of Tillich and Rahner provides new insights. However, their theologies were oriented toward modernity. This book makes a contribution to post-modern Christology. The ambiguity, which is "implicit" in Tillich and Rahner, is made "explicit" and interpreted in postmetaphysical terms; this involves developing a theology of presence and applying it to the Incarnation and the Death-Resurrection event. This theological study draws on interrelated strategies of philosophical reasoning, historiography, conceptual critique and comparative analysis.

Of Love and Madness is a tale of sin and retribution set in and around Cordoba, Argentina. The main action occurs in the mid-1960s, a period when provincial Argentina is finally turning away from its insular, agrarian past and embracing the modem world. The protagonist is a child of the new era who is impelled by an uncertain mix of personal and supernatural forces to sacrifice herself for the demise of the old. Among stories of dynastic decline, Of Love and Madness is distinguished by its focus upon the historically encumbered female and its unusual perspective on the struggle of Latin American cultures to escape their past. Woman is cast as a destroyer as well as creator, charged with burying the old world before building a new one in which she can have an appropriate place. This process of subversion and atonement is personal and to a large extent internal, and its cost is a risk of isolation even within the traditionally permitted female sphere. Woman's ability to survive and prevail hinges in part on a willingness to accommodate natural and spiritual imperatives rather than opposing them.

Changing Perspectives on the First Millennium BC

These fifteen papers came out of the eighth annual meeting of the Iron Age Research Student Seminar (IARSS) and are loosely grouped into three topics: settlement studies, deposition and material culture, and experimental archaeology. Most of the studies are re-examinings of well known data sets, such as hillforts, small enclosures and bone assemblages, both human and animal. They are mainly focused on the British Iron Age - one of the most heterogeneous and regionally distinctive periods in British prehistory. Material culture is highly variable, as are settlement patterns, and even chronology is of an entirely local character, being reliant on typological sequences from each region's specific archaeological record. The book ends with the recounting of a trip to the Iron Age village at St. Fagan's, Cardiff - a practical foray into the Iron Age day-to-day.
