2401 objects by Hannah Barker( )

6 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 587 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2011 Fringe First Award Winner'Henry, are you awake?'Henry lives each day like the last. Exactly like the last. Every day, he tries to make sense of the world around him; the girl sitting on the lawn outside his window, the pages of a book filled with the same sentence, the 80 year old man looking at him in the mirror. In 2009 Patient H.M.'s brain is dissected live on the internet to a global audience of 400,000 people, cut into carefully preserved slices: manuscripts of tissue like the pages of a book. In 1953 Henry Molaison emerges from experimental brain surgery without any recollection of the last two years of his life or the ability to form new memories. In 1935 nine-year old Henry is knocked over by a bike, leaving him unconscious for five minutes. Following Analogue's critically acclaimed Mile End and Beachy Head and inspired by the world's most important neuroscientific case-study, 2401 Objects tells the remarkable story of a man who could no longer remember, but who has proven impossible to forget.'I defy anyone not be drawn into this deeply moving examination of life, death and memory.' - Telegraph'2401 Objects is a solid, well-researched piece of theatre that adds to Analogue's ever-growing canon of work.' - Total Theatre Review'Beautifully-sculpted ... an understated and outstandingly gentle piece of theatre' -The Scotsman

Newspapers, politics and English society, 1695-1855 by Hannah Barker( Book )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2014 in English and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Newspapers, Politics and English Society, 1695-1855 explores the development of newspapers between the lapsing of the Printing Act in the late seventeenth century, and the removal of newspaper taxation in the mid nineteenth century." "During this period, the newspaper press expanded rapidly until, by the early nineteenth century, newspapers were produced in huge numbers and had become part of the everyday life of the most humble Englishmen and women. As such, they had a profound impact on both popular politics and on the nature of public opinion." "Newspapers were vital not only in putting 'the people' into English politics, but in politicising and thus uniting sections within the increasingly powerful body of 'the public'. The newspaper press not only altered the manner in which politics was conducted at the centre, but also the way in which it operated at every level of English life. As such it played a crucial role in the political change which occurred in England between 1695 and 1855." "The book will be of interest to students and scholars of the political and social history of the period, as well as those examining literature, print culture and the history of media and communications."--Jacket

Family and business during the Industrial Revolution by Hannah Barker( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Small businesses were at the heart of the economic growth and social transformation that characterized the industrial revolution in Britain. In towns across north-west England, shops and workshops dominated the streetscape, and helped to satisfy an increasing desire for consumer goods. Yet despite their significance, we know surprisingly little about these firms and the people who ran them, for whilst those engaged in craft-based manufacturing, retailing, and allied trades constituted a significant proportion of the urban population, they have been generally overlooked by historians. Instead, our view of the world of business is more usually taken up by narratives of particularly successful firms, and especially those involved in new modes of production. By examining some of the forgotten businesses of the industrial revolution, and the men and women who worked in them, Family and Business During the Industrial Revolution presents a largely unfamiliar commercial world. Its approach, which spans economic, social, and cultural history, as well as encompassing business history and the histories of the emotions, space, and material culture, alongside studies of personal testimony, testatory practice, and property ownership, tests current understandings of gender, work, family, class, and power in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. It provides us with new insights into the lives of ordinary men and women in trade, whose relatively mundane lives are easily overlooked, but who were central to the story of a pivotal period in British history."--
Stowaway by Hannah Barker( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stowaway is the story of a man from India who moves to the UAE for the promise of work and prosperity. When he finds himself trapped within a Dubai labour camp, with his passport and wages withheld from him, he hides in the wheel well of a plane bound for the UK, in a bid for a better life. It's a story about invisible and physical borders and the people who transcend them. But what are the rules of telling someone else's story when they come from a world so very different from our own; where telling their story could act to perpetuate an unresolved history of imperialism? With the skeleton of a plane cutting across the stage, Stowaway flies back and forth through time and place, looking at storytelling as a political act
Egyptian and Italian merchants in the Black Sea slave trade, 1260-1500 by Hannah Barker( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present study examines the merchant networks which exported slaves from the Black Sea to Genoa, Venice, and Cairo from the late thirteenth to the late fifteenth century on the basis of both Arabic and Latin sources. It begins with an explanation of features distinctive to slavery in the medieval Mediterranean, the most important of which was its ideological basis in religious rather than racial difference, as well as a comparison between the Christian and Islamic laws governing slavery. In subsequent chapters it covers the variety of roles played by slaves in Mediterranean society, how the use of individual slaves was shaped by their gender and origin, and the processes which led to the enslavement of people within the Black Sea region. The heart of the project is the fourth chapter, an analysis of the commercial networks which conveyed slaves from the ports of the Black Sea to those of the Mediterranean. This chapter profiles individual merchants who dealt in slaves, traces the routes and identifies the logistical challenges of the slave trade, and analyzes the relative importance of various groups of merchants in supplying the Mediterranean demand for slaves

Press, politics and the public sphere in Europe and North America, 1760-1820( )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Newspapers are a vital component of print and political cultures, and as such they informed as well as documented the social and political upheavals of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. However, despite the huge influence attributed to them by both contemporary observers and historians, our knowledge of the nature and function of the newspaper press itself remains scant. Press, Politics and the Public Sphere in Europe and North America, 1760–1820 aims to fill this gap by examining aspects of the press in several European countries and America, both individually and comparatively, during this particularly turbulent and important period. Contributors explore the relationship between newspapers and social change, specifically in the context of the part played by the press in the political upheavals of the time. The collection examines the relationship between newspapers and public opinion, and attempts to define their place in the emergence of a 'public sphere'
Beachy Head by Lewis Hetherington( )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It has been a month since Stephen jumped. Amy collects her husband's effects, the things he had with him gathered in a single box. There was no sign - no warning of what he would do. As fractured memories of their last night together rewind, replay and unravel, she is desperate to find out why. Joe and Matt are making a documentary. Whilst reviewing their footage they make a startling discovery that takes their film in an unexpected direction - the blurred image of a man jumping from the cliffs. Beachy Head is a powerful look at the ripple effects of one man's decision to take his life.'A quietly splendid production, magically well staged; it lingers long' -The Observer'Beachy Head treats its sombre core themes - mortality, grief and artistic responsibility - with a clever, caring and occasionally humorous theatrical intelligence. Well-researched and simply but fluidly staged, it is a skilful blend of text of technology. Analogue's desire to probe the painful, mysterious emotions behind clinical facts is honourable.' - Donald Hutera, The Times
Newspapers, Politics, and Public Opinion in Late Eighteenth-Century England. Oxford Historical Monographs by Hannah Barker( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Historians have traditionally attributed great influence to newspapers in late eighteenth-century England, yet in spite of the power they were supposed to wield, very little is known about the newspaper press itself during this period. Newspapers, Politics, and Public Opinion in Late Eighteenth-Century England examines the ways in which both London and provincial newspapers operated, the fashioning of their politics, and their relationships with politicians, and, crucially, their readers. In particular, this book is concerned with the ways in which newspapers both represented and shaped public opinion. By concentrating on the late 1770s and early 1780s, and on events and debates surrounding the movement for political reform, these areas are brought into sharper focus; as are important and related issues such as the changing nature of popular political debate, the role of 'the people' in politics, and the composition of the political nation
