History in practice by L. J Jordanova( Book )

48 editions published between 1999 and 2019 in English and held by 888 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new study by one of the liveliest and most acute practitioners in the field has a refreshing transparency, a determination to demystify what historians do. It looks at history as an academic discipline but also engages with the use of historical ideas in the wider world. It examines the way historians have 'divided up' their subject, how this has changed and with what effects. Why have certain fields, such as women's history and black history, generated such intense debates about their value and validity? Is there justification for the frequent characterisation of history as something of a jackdaw subject, with a tendency to appropriate theories and concepts from other areas? What is the nature of the links with adjacent fields, such as anthropology and literary theory?" "Issues such as these are part of the book's careful mapping of the theory and practice of history, exploring the discipline's breadth, its complexities and the intellectual tasks it takes on."--Jacket

The look of the past : visual and material evidence in historical practice by L. J Jordanova( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2016 in English and held by 479 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can we use visual and material culture to shed light on the past? Ludmilla Jordanova offers a fascinating and thoughtful introduction to the role of images, objects and buildings in the study of past times. Through a combination of thematic chapters and essays on specific artefacts - a building, a piece of sculpture, a photographic exhibition and a painted portrait - she shows how to analyse the agency and visual intelligence of artists, makers and craftsmen and make sense of changes in visual experience over time. Generously illustrated and drawing on numerous examples of images and objects from 1600 to the present, this is an essential guide to the skills that students need in order to describe, analyse and contextualise visual evidence. The Look of the Past will encourage readers to think afresh about how they, like people in the past, see and interpret the world around them"--

Each of the books focuses on fifty elements that have contributed to making the RCP what it is today. This, the eighth volume in the series, focuses on the College's collection of portraits. Author Ludmilla Jordanova has penned a fascinating exploration of medical portraits, and their meanings and signification.
