Building communities : house, settlement and society in the Aegean and beyond : proceedings of a conference held at Cardiff University, 17-21 April 2001( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume explores a range of approaches to the built environment of the ancient Mediterranean world, with two main aims: first, to relate archaeological evidence to the wider cultural and historical context, and second, to bridge the conventional divide between prehistoric and Classical archaeology. It contains 40 papers by an international array of scholars, ranging from the Neolithic to Late Antiquity, and geographically from the Aegean to Italy, North Africa, Egypt and the Black Sea. The papers offer many new interpretations of a wide range of material and, taken together, give an exciting overview of the latest scholarship and ideas in this rich and developing field of study

Galicia²¹ : journal of contemporary Galician studies( )

in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galicia 21: Journal of Contemporary Galician Studies is a refereed electronic journal co-sponsored by the Centre for Galician Studies in Wales (Bangor University) and Cardiff University. The journal seeks to bring together multidisciplinary approaches to those themes of current and growing interest within the field of Galician Studies. It places special emphasis on discussion and debate centred upon the thematic concerns of this expanding discipline in order to foster connections with neighbouring frameworks and approaches (Iberian and modern language studies, comparative literature, critical theory, etc). In addition to offering a new forum on a truly international plane of critical engagement, in which scholars may debate, question and critique existing paradigms of the field, this journal aims to expand and redefine the conceptual parameters of Galician Studies in the twenty-first century"--Statement page (publisher's Web site, viewed Feb. 28, 2012)

Sounds Islamic? : Muslim music in Britain by Carl Morris( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Young Muslims in Britain are increasingly required to navigate an unsettled social, religious and cultural landscape. These complex dynamics encompass a range of factors: from sectarianism and the global marketplace of Islamic knowledge, through to the influence of diverse ethnic communities, the ubiquity of popular culture, and late-modern discourses relating to spirituality and religion. Religious practice, identity formation and social/cultural relationships are therefore a continual process of (re)negotiation, with young Muslims often adopting highly reflexive and pragmatic approaches to this uncertainty. Emerging from this turbulent context is a vibrant Muslim music culture. This thesis provides an ethnographic account of this music culture - through engagement with both musicians and fans - whilst furthermore analysing the deeper significance of Muslim cultural production in contemporary Britain. The observations and arguments throughout are based on extensive fieldwork that took place over a period of approximately two years. A number of methodological strategies were employed: these included interviewing, participant observation and various online research methodologies (including an online survey). While the ethnographic account provided in this thesis is an original and timely contribution to the study of Muslims in Britain, there are broader theoretical implications to emerge. In particular, the original concepts of 'Islamic Music' and 'Islamicallyconscious music' are developed to better understand how Muslim musicians varyingly emphasise both their individual subjectivity and a more collectivist sense of religious belonging. By examining the development of a distinct British Muslim public sphere, it will therefore be claimed that Muslim musicians are using cultural production as a vehicle to simultaneously contest, negotiate and develop ideas of Muslim practice and collectivity in contemporary Britain

Foundations of 'Ecological Reformation' : a critical study of Jürgen Moltmann's contributions towards a 'New Theological Architecture' for environment care by Ben Dare( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jürgen Moltmann's desire to see the relationship between humans and our natural environment improve is long-standing. In later years he called for a 'new theological architecture' to help facilitate an 'ecological reformation' of Christianity and society. While Moltmann did not claim to have created this new architecture, one of his work's aims has clearly been to contribute towards it. To what extent has Moltmann been successful in this aim? Firstly, his doctrine of the Trinity provides the themes of love and relatedness which pervade and colour his whole project. These themes then interact with other key areas of Moltmann's thought that inform this architecture: creation, God's ongoing care and openness towards creation (largely pneumatology and christology), and eschatology. Each of these areas contribute to a theological architecture in which non-human creation, past, present, and future, is a full recipient of God's uniting love and openness. Naturally this leads towards a consideration of the ecological reformation. Less positively, Moltmann's discussion of God's creating through self-restriction presents some problems for this architecture's coherence, although Moltmann's developing views on this do help provide a solution. Furthermore, analysis of the criticisms made by various commentators suggests that several debated areas are actually particularly productive for Moltmann's contributions to the architecture. Other criticisms do highlight areas of concern and possible development, but do not present terminal problems. The potential for this architecture to address practice, not simply theory, increases through elements of Moltmann's theological anthropology that challenge humanity's behaviour. Those elements thus form a lens through which Moltmann's wider contributions to the architecture more powerfully speak of the need for creation care. Therefore, while Moltmann's contribution towards a new architecture for ecological reformation would be helped by certain modifications, nevertheless it is highly significant. Its wide scope makes it fertile for further contributions and development

The archaeology of Kuwait by Majed Almutairi( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis addresses the archaeology of Kuwait from 13000BC to the 18th century AD, to further understand its significances within the Arabian Gulf and wider world. Kuwait has witness many diverse cultures By comparing for the first time the archaeology, geography, and historical sources, I illustrate that this region has been continual inhabited and used as an important hub of social networks since its beginnings. By introducing the Ubaid civilization and their relations with other regions, we witness the first exchange and trade strategies in Kuwait. By looking at the burial mound phenomenon in Kuwait we witness a hiatus of permanent settlements and a time when people were more nomadic. The impact of these mounds resonated into later periods. Petroleum based substances play a key role in modern Kuwait; the Ubaid and the Dilmun first developed the usage of bitumen, and here we see how that created links with others in the world. Ideas move as well as people, and I demonstrate the proto-Hellenistic and Hellenistic periods in Kuwait to illustrate influences from the Mediterranean. Modern Kuwait is Islamic, and here we will investigate how and why and the speeds at which Christianity gave way to Islam, and the impacts of a different religion on the region. In highlighting Kuwait's past, I show how the state became one of the most democratic and diverse places in the Arabian Gulf

Reforming metaphorical theology? : a critical assessment of the works of Sallie McFague in the light of her respondents by Richard Hainsworth( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

McFague's contributions to theology span over 40 years. Does her theological project, which aims to reform the Christian tradition, retain the coherence and consistency needed to fulfil this aim today? Surprisingly, McFague's body of work remains coherent, consistent and viable after many years of debate in relation to her own aims and methods and the responses of critics. However her theology can, in places, be strengthened in meeting its aim by an integration of more recent research or the work of her respondents. Developments in her thought over time remain generally consistent with her earlier work. Analysis of the basic categories of her thought shows a unity of form and content and an underlying conceptual unity. The models McFague advances are consistent as expressions of her stated method and aims. They perform the tasks set for them, if not always by the means she describes. Again the importance of the conceptual level proves greater than McFague allows. The coherence and consistency of the greater part of her work is weaker in its interaction with the Christian tradition. Her position on this has changed most over time. Work remains to be done on integrating her models with traditional ones. Despite her own judgements, this integration is desirable to maximise the reform of that tradition as she wishes and for her theology most naturally to be seen as reforming rather than revolutionary. But overall, McFague's work makes a valuable contribution to contemporary theology. She expounds coherent, original metaphorical models addressing contemporary concerns and a coherent theoretical framework that has largely withstood the scrutiny of respondents and developments in her field. Within this framework models may be created and assessed in creative tension with Christian tradition. However this relationship with the tradition remains to be deepened, strengthened and clarified by future research
