Elsie Clews Parsons inventing modern life by Desley Deacon ( )
11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 1,989 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Elsie Clews Parsons was a relentlessly modern woman. A pioneering feminist, an eminent anthropologist, an ardent social critic, she challenged Americans to develop flexible and dynamic gender, family, and social arrangements that fit the new century. From 1912, when she incorporated ethnographic data on upper-class New York into a series of tersely ironic books and articles, Parsons brought to anthropology a passionate desire to educate the public to accept and welcome

Transnational lives : biographies of global modernity, 1700-present ( Book )
8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The transnationalism of ordinary lives threatens the stability of national identity and unsettles the framework of national histories and biography. This book takes mobility, not nation, as its frame, and captures a rich array of lives, from the elite to the subaltern, that have crossed national, racial, and cartographic boundaries"--Provided by publisher
Talking and listening in the age of modernity : essays on the history of sound ( Book )
4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 53 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Historians have, until recently, been silent about sound. This collection of essays on talking and listening in the age of modernity brings together major Australian scholars who have followed Alain Corbin's injunction that historians 'can no longer afford to neglect materials pertaining to auditory perception'. Ranging from the sound of gunfire on the Australian gold-fields to Alfred Deakin's virile oratory, these essays argue for the influence of the auditory in forming individual and collective subjectivities; the place of speech in understanding individual and collective endeavours; the centrality of speech in marking and negating difference and in struggles for power; and the significance of the technologies of radio and film in forming modern cultural identities."--Publisher's description
Transnational ties Australian lives in the world by Desley Deacon ( )
3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Australian lives are intricately enmeshed with the world, bound by ties of allegiance and affinity, intellect and imagination. In Transnational Ties: Australian Lives in the World, an eclectic mix of scholars--historians, literary critics, and museologists--trace the flow of people that helped shape Australia's distinctive character and the flow of ideas that connected Australians to a global community of thought. It shows how biography, and the study of life stories, can contribute greatly to our understanding of such patterns of connection and explores how transnationalism can test biography's limits as an intellectual, professional and commercial practice."--Publisher's description
Fear and conventionality by Elsie Worthington Clews Parsons ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Widely admired by cultural critics and the avant garde when it was first published, Fear and Conventionality broke new ground for American anthropology. In it, Elsie Clews Parsons turns a cool and ironic eye on the mores and customs of her own upper-class New York society. A modern mind at the turn of the century, Parsons challenged social conventions about gender and family as part of the new feminist movement. Witty, graceful, and impassioned, this book will be of interest to social and cultural historians and anyone interested in early twentieth-century America
