Love's quarrels : reading charity in early modern England by Evan A Gurney( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 125 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early modern English writers often complained that 'charity had grown cold,' lamenting the dissolution of society's communal bonds. But far from diminishing in scope or influence, charity generated heated debates, animated by social, political, and religious changes that prompted urgent questions about the virtue's powers and functions. Charity was as much a problem as it was a solution, a sure sign of trouble even when invoked on behalf of peace and community. Love's Quarrels charts charity's complex history from the 1520s to the 1640s and details the ways in which it can be best understood in biblical translations of the early sixteenth century, in Elizabethan polemic and satire, and in the political and religious controversies arriving at the outset of civil war. As key works from Edmund Spenser, Ben Jonson, and John Milton reveal, "reading charity" was fraught with difficulty as early modern England reconsidered its deepest held convictions in the face of mounting social disruption and spiritual pressure"

Committed to memory : cultural mediations of the Holocaust by Oren Baruch Stier( Book )

2 editions published between 2003 and 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers a close and critical analysis of a range of cultural activities that mediate the Holocaust for a public increasingly distant from the events of World War II. Oren Baruch Stier argues that the manner in which those events are committed to memory, coupled with the fervent dedication to memory exhibited by many people and institutions, produces distinct memorial mediations of the Shoah." "In the end, Stier asks what role forgetting can and does play in the memorial landscape, demonstrating how critical attention to our memorial investments, and to the mechanics and media of memory's construction and transmission, can uncover what is both gained and lost in these commitments."--Jacket

Sex science self : a social history of estrogen, testosterone, and identity by Bob Ostertag( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In Sex Science Self, Bob Ostertag cautions against accepting and defending any technology uncritically{u2015}even, maybe even especially, a technology that has become integrally related to identity. Specifically, he examines the development of estrogen and testosterone as pharmaceuticals. Ostertag situates this history alongside the story of an increasingly visible and political lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender population. He persuasively argues that scholarship on the development of sex hormone chemicals does not take into account LGBT history and activism, nor has work in LGBT history fully considered the scientific research that has long attempted to declare a chemical essence of gender. In combining these histories, Ostertag reveals the complex motivations behind hormone research over generations and expresses concern about the growing profits from estrogen and testosterone, which now are marketed with savvy ad campaigns to increase their use across multiple demographics. Ostertag does not argue against the use of pharmaceutical hormones. Instead he points out that at a time when they are increasingly available, it is more important than ever to understand the history and current use of these powerful chemicals so that everyone{u2015}within the LGBT community and beyond{u2015}can make informed choices

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Joint enterprises : collaborative drama and the institutionalization of the English Renaissance theater by Heather Anne Hirschfeld( Book )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Drawing on a range of documentary and literary sources as well as recent methodological advances in theater history, the book presents a sequence of case studies designed to accommodate both the larger cultural setting of the early modern theater and the localized, idiosyncratic factors influencing discrete literary productions. Each chapter chronicles the professional setting of a particular joint work and then investigates its rhetorical or linguistic traces in the resultant text. This approach allows Hirschfeld to locate specific links between modes of collaborative production and forms of dramatic representation and then explicate the literary and political implications of these connections."--Jacket
