Overlooking the Border continues the dialogue surrounding the social history of Jerusalem. Based on ethnographic fieldwork, the book juxtaposes Israeli and Palestinian personal narratives about the past with contemporary museum exhibits, street plaques, tourism, and real estate projects that are reshaping the city since the decline of the peace process and the second intifada.As sites of memory, Jerusalem's homes, streets, and natural areas form the setting for emotionally charged narratives about belonging and rights to place. Recollections of local customs and lifeways in the mid-20th century coalesce around residents' desire for stability amid periods of war, dispossession, and relocation - intertwining the mythical with the mundane. Hercbergs begins by taking the listener to the historically Arab neighborhoods of West Jerusalem, whose streets are a battleground for competing historical narratives about the Israeli-Arab War of 1948. She goes on to explore the connections and tensions between Mizrahi Jews and Palestinians living across the border from one another in Musrara, a neighborhood straddling West and East Jerusalem. The author rounds out the monograph with a semiotic analysis of contemporary tourism and architectural ventures that are entrenching ethno-national separation in the post-Oslo period. 1.

Bristol Temple Meads Railway Station
39,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Bristol Temple Meads railway station is the oldest and largest railway station in Bristol, England. It is an important interchange hub for public transport in Bristol, with bus services to various parts of the city and surrounding districts, and a ferry service to the city centre in addition to the train services. Bristol's other main-line station, Bristol Parkway, is on the northern outskirts of the Bristol conurbation. It opened on 31 August 1840 as the western terminus of the Great Western Railway from London Paddington station. The whole railway including Temple Meads was the first one designed by the prolific British engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Soon the station was also used by the Bristol and Exeter Railway, the Bristol and Gloucester Railway, the Bristol Harbour Railway and the Bristol and South Wales Union Railway. To accommodate the increasing number of trains the station was expanded in the 1870s by Francis Fox, and again in the 1930s by P E Culverhouse. Brunel's terminus is no longer part of the operational station: it housed the British Empire and Commonwealth Museum until that museum's relocation to London.

The Fabric of Memory
53,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This book represents an exhibit of 22 fabric artworks that were displayed at the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center in 2016 and made by 17 women of the Textile Artists of the Greater Yellowstone (TAGY), who hail from the Wyoming towns of Cody, Powell, Meeteetse, Lovell, Sheridan and Thermopolis-localities near the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center. The Interpretive Center is located on the site of the former 'Heart Mountain Relocation Center,' which unjustly incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II. Today, it is a National Historic Landmark site that includes the museum, memorial, walking trail and original camp structures. Also displayed with these works was a quilt by Naoko Yoshimura Ito, a Japanese American who, as a child, was forcibly removed from her home in 1942, and incarcerated at the 'Heart Mountain Relocation Center' for three years with her family. The artists featured in this book employed their talents to express experiences, to mark moments, to make meaning of memory, and the pieces boast immense variety in material and method. Ito's quilt is a meditation on her past, a way to make peace with years of hardship, injustice and loss. The TAGY textiles were made by sewing patches of fabric with personal recollections, emotions felt during tours of the Interpretive Center, and the stories heard on visits here. These women found ways to stitch together the Japanese American experience and their own lives. The collection presents viewers with traditional techniques of fabric arts in addition to creative processes borrowed from other arts, including collage, origami, dyeing, beading, appliqué, silk screening and spray painting. The women of TAGY also experimented with fabrics, incorporating vintage silk kimonos, Shibori dyed fabrics and even real barbed wire. We invite you to explore the many layers within 'The Fabric of Memory,' and the various threads that tie us all to the spirit and stories of the Japanese American experience.

Overlooking the Border

Overlooking the Border: Narratives of a Divided Jerusalem by Dana Hercbergs continues the dialogue surrounding the social history of Jerusalem. The book's starting point is the border that separated the city between Jordan and Israel in 1948-1967, a lesser-known but significant period for cultural representations of Jerusalem. Based on ethnographic fieldwork, the book juxtaposes Israeli and Palestinian personal narratives about the past with contemporary museum exhibits, street plaques, tourism, and real estate projects that are reshaping the city since the decline of the peace process and the second intifada. What emerges is a portrayal of Jerusalem both as a local place with unique rhythms and topography and as a setting for national imaginaries and agendas with their attendant political and social tensions. As sites of memory, Jerusalem's homes, streets, and natural areas form the setting for emotionally charged narratives about belonging and rights to place. Recollections of local customs and lifeways in the mid-twentieth century coalesce around residents' desire for stability amid periods of war, dispossession, and relocation-intertwining the mythical with the mundane. Hercbergs begins by taking the reader to the historically Arab neighborhoods of West Jerusalem, whose streets are a battleground for competing historical narratives about the Israeli-Arab War 1948. She goes on to explore the connections and tensions between Mizrahi Jews and Palestinians living across the border from one another in Musrara, a neighborhood straddling West and East Jerusalem. The author rounds out the monograph with a semiotic analysis of contemporary tourism and architectural ventures that are entrenching ethno-national separation in the post-Oslo period. These rhetorical expressions illuminate what it means to be a Jerusalemite in the context of the city's fraught history. Overlooking the Border examines the social and geographic significance of borders for residents' sense of self, place, and community, and for representations of the city both locally and abroad. It is certain to be of value to scholars and advanced undergraduate and graduate students of Middle Eastern studies, history, urban ethnography, and Israeli and Jewish studies.

It was the year 1904, and the country was again ready to re-elect former &quote;Rough Rider&quote; Teddy Roosevelt to another four-year term in the White House. The Panama Canal was underway and the nation was growing, opening opportunities for those who would dare to dream and turn their hard work into reality. For Thomas J. Armstrong, it was a new position as head keeper of the Michigan City Light Station. This new title offers a glimpse into Michigan City maritime history, from the storm of 1913 that left the lighthouse practically buried in ice, to the capsizing of the Eastland on its way to Michigan City, one of the worst marine disasters in the history of the Great Lakes. The light would guide mariners until its relocation to the Michigan City Lighthouse Museum in 1980, where it is on display today.Michigan City Lighthouse is a collection of over 200 vintage photographs and postcards dated from 1909 through 1920, taken by lighthouse keepers Fred Dykeman, Thomas Martin, and Thomas Armstrong.
