On issues from A to Z, abortion to Zionism, it is impossible to understand the contours of American political culture without paying attention to religion. Mark Hulsether provides a concise introduction to the key themes, actors, and institutions of religion as they relate to North American culture and society in the twentieth century, using an approach informed by the fields of U.S. religious history and American Studies. His dual goal is to introduce religions on their own terms and to chart their dynamic relations with broader cultural trends and socio-political forces, as understood in U.S. history and the wider interdisciplinary study of North America. Hulsether offers a concise synthetic statement, accessible for readers who are not specialists in U.S. religion. More than other leading books that might serve as introductions to this subject, Hulsether stresses issues of cultural pluralism, conflict, and contestation - especially on lines of race, ethnicity, and gender. He offers a valuable bridge between specialized scholarship in U.S. religion and a wider field of interdisciplinary research on U.S. history and culture and society that often underplays the continuing importance of religious identities and subcultures. Mainline Protestantism, Catholicism, white evangelicalism, the black church and Judaism are amongst the many religious groups treated. Based on the timeline of American history, events are recontextualised and rediscovered, examined from new, religious angles. Readers will develop an understanding of the importance of American religion in the twentieth century
African American visual arts by Celeste-Marie Bernier ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 842 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book examines the quilts, ceramics, paintings, sculpture, installations, assemblages, daguerrotypes, photography and performance art produced by African American artists over a 200-year period. The author draws on archaeological discoveries and unpublished archival materials to recover the lost legacies of artists living and working in the United States." "The first critical study to provide in-depth case studies of 20 artists, this book introduces readers to works created in response to the Middle Passage, Atlantic slavery, lynching, racism, segregation and the fight for civil rights. Celeste-Marie Bernier examines little-discussed panoramas, murals, portraits, textile designs, collages and mixed-media installations to get to grips with key motifs and formal issues within African American art history." "Working within this tradition, artists experiment with cutting-edge techniques and alternative subject-matter to undermine racist iconography and endorse a new visual language. They push thematic and formal boundaries to create powerful narratives and epic histories of creativity, labour, discrimination, suffering and resistance. By providing close readings of works by artists such as Elizabeth Catlett, Jacob Lawrence, William Edmonson, Howardena Pindell, Charles Alston, Romare Bearden, Norman Lewis, Betye Saar, Horace Pippin and Kara Walker, this book sheds new light on the thematic and formal complexities of an African American art tradition which still remains largely shrouded in mystery."--BOOK JACKET
