Remembering Protest in Britain since 1500: Memory, Materiality and the Landscape

Remembering Protest in Britain since 1500: Memory, Materiality and the Landscape by Carl J. Griffin
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 260 Pages | ISBN : 3319742426 | 15.06 MB

This book offers the first systematic study of the multiple and contested ways in which protest is remembered. Drawing on work in social and cultural history, cultural and historical geography, psychology, anthropology, critical heritage studies, and memory studies, Remembering Protest focuses on the dynamic and lived nature of past protests, asking how conflicted communities and individuals made sense of and mobilized protest past in forging the future. Written by several of the leading historians and historical geographers of protest in early modern and modern Britain, the chapters span the period from 1500 to c.1850 while also speaking to the politics of past protests in the present. In so doing, it also offers the first showcase of the variety of approaches that comprises the vibrant and intellectually fecund ‘new protest history’. Empirically rich but conceptually sophisticated, this book will appeal to those with an interest in protest history, and early modern and modern British history, and historical geography more generally.

Constructing Catalan Identity: Memory, Imagination, and the Medieval

Constructing Catalan Identity: Memory, Imagination, and the Medieval By Michael A. Vargas
English | EPUB | 2018 | 204 Pages | ISBN : 3319767437 | 0.7 MB

This is a book about how Catalans use their past, real and imagined, in the construction of their present and future. Michael A. Vargas inventories the significant people, signal events, and familiar icons that constitute the Catalan collective memory, from Wilfred the Hairy and Sant Jordi to the mountain monastery of Montserrat, red peasant caps, and human towers in town squares. He then considers how that inventory is employed to posit a brilliant political heritage at the forefront of modern European democracy—and for some, to build a powerful independence movement. As the future of Catalonia remains fraught, this book offers a lively and engaging exploration of how we draw upon history to confront contemporary challenges.

Illness as Metaphor and AIDS and Its Metaphors [Audiobook] by Susan Sontag
English | March 1st, 2018 | ASIN: B079P9SLPJ, ISBN: 1538537451 | MP3@64 kbps | 4 hrs 37 mins | 127.33 MB
Narrator: Tavia Gilbert

In 1978 Susan Sontag wrote Illness as Metaphor, a classic work described by Newsweek as “one of the most liberating books of its time”. A cancer patient herself when she was writing the book, Sontag shows how the metaphors and myths surrounding certain illnesses, especially cancer, add greatly to the suffering of patients and often inhibit them from seeking proper treatment. By demystifying the fantasies surrounding cancer, Sontag shows cancer for what it is - just a disease. Cancer, she argues, is not a curse, not a punishment, certainly not an embarrassment, and it is highly curable, if good treatment is followed.
