Revolutionary tides : the art of the political poster, 1914-1989 by Jeffrey T Schnapp( Book )

25 editions published in 2005 in 3 languages and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public assemblies and multitudes in action are fundamental to our notion of political life. Through 120 posters-many never previously reproduced-the book examines the impact of large gatherings of people in politics and society concentrating on the turbulent years of the first half of the 20th century. The posters will be presented in a nearly year-long US exhibition, drawn from the massive collection of Stanford University's Hoover Institution, and augmented by works from the Wolfsonian Museum, Florida International University, and the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University. The exhibition catalog, published in conjunction with the Cantor Arts Center, explores the decisive importance of large gatherings of people and its correlative, the mass medium of poster art, and considers the complex nature of the portrayal of political crowds in the modern period.Schnapp's text frames the featured works within a broader history of the images of the crowd in Western art. The essay aims to sharpen the reader's perspective by creating a synthetic understanding of how emerging principles of popular sovereignty in politics shaped new images and myths of a new, collective sense of our humanity
Crowds( Book )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Crowds" explores the key role assumed by human multitudes in modern life by means of a graphically innovative, multi-author volume in which essays, word histories, and personal testimonies are woven together into a multiperspectival and multilayered group portrait. The portrait in question includes analyses of market crowds, crowds in modern art and literature, modern assemblies as compared to their premodern and ancient counterparts, modern sports crowds, human multitudes and mass media such as photography and cinema, crowds as political actors, and the emergence of crowd-centered discourses in social sciences such as psychology, anthropology, and sociology. Contributors include Stefan Jonsson, Allen Guttmann, Susanna Elm, John Plotz, Christine Poggi, William Egginton, Haun Saussy, Joan Ramon Resina, and Charles Tilly, with testimonies by authors such as Greil Marcus, Richard Rorty, Michel Serres, Alain Schnapp, Michael Hardt, T. J. Clark, and Susan Buck-Morss. The book represents the main output of one of the Stanford Humanities Lab' s prototype " Big Humanities" projects and is supported by an extensive website (http: // which includes virtual galleries, video capture of the November 2005 Crowds seminar, and a database of early social science readings on modern crowds
The library beyond the book by Jeffrey T Schnapp( Book )

11 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 608 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"With textbook readers and digital downloads proliferating, it is easy to imagine a time when printed books will vanish. Such forecasts miss the mark, argue Jeffrey Schnapp and Matthew Battles. Future bookshelves will not be wholly virtual, and libraries will thrive although in a variety of new social, cultural, and architectural forms. Schnapp and Battles combine deep study of the library s history with a record of institutional and technical innovation at metaLAB, a research group at the forefront of the digital humanities. They gather these currents in The Library Beyond the Book," exploring what libraries have been in the past to speculate on what they will become: hybrid places that intermingle books and ebooks, analog and digital formats, paper and pixels. Libraries have always been mix-and-match spaces, and remix is their most plausible future scenario. Speculative and provocative, The Library Beyond the Book" explains book culture for a world where the physical and the virtual blend with ever increasing intimacy."--Publisher's description
Modernitalia by Jeffrey T Schnapp( )

14 editions published in 2012 in English and German and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jeffrey Schnapp’s essays fizz with intelligence, erudition and style. These explorations into Italian modernity offer ingenious inquiries into the paradoxes and plasticity of cultural forms, putting into question established interpretations based on dichotomy and definition. A master class in cultural history." (Robert Lumley, Professor of Italian Cultural History, University College London) "Like the Futurists, Schnapp comes armed with explosive ideas and, like the Modernists, handles them coolly and clearly: he zigzags impatiently through modern Italy in search of its fugitive soul, stopping at half-forgotten way-stations and blazing into favorite topics with courage and insight." (Kurt W. Forster, Professor of Architectural History and Theory, Yale University)
Digital_humanities by Anne Burdick( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2019 in 3 languages and held by 441 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Included are chapters on the basics, on emerging methods and genres, and on the social life of the digital humanities, along with "case studies," "provocations," and "advisories." These persuasively crafted interventions offer a descriptive toolkit for anyone involved in the design, production, oversight, and review of digital projects. The authors argue that the digital humanities offers a revitalization of the liberal arts tradition in the electronically inflected, design-driven, multimedia language of the twenty-first century. Written by five leading practitioner-theorists whose varied backgrounds embody the intellectual and creative diversity of the field, Digital_Humanities is a vision statement for the future, an invitation to engage, and a critical tool for understanding the shape of new scholarship."

Staging fascism : 18 BL and the theater of masses for masses by Jeffrey T Schnapp( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 392 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the complete story of 18 BL, a direct response to an April 1933 speech by Mussolini, who called for the creation of a distinctively fascist "theater for twenty thousand spectators." The book describes how the spectacle arose amidst the theoretical debates unleashed by Mussolini's speech; how it was able to put itself forward as a solution to anxieties regarding the inadequacy of fascist culture; how and by whom it was organized and realized; and the work's aspirations, achievements, and failures. The detailed reconstruction of these various aspects of 18 BL serves as a springboard for a larger inquiry into the place of media, technology, and machinery in the fascist imagination, particularly in its links to fascist models of narrative, historiography, spectacle, and subjectivity

Ball and hammer : Hugo Ball's Tenderenda the fantast by Hugo Ball( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Tenderenda, composed between 1914 and 1920, Ball recounts a hallucinatory tale of his own Dada enchantment and disenchantment. Jeffrey T. Schnapp introduces the book, elaborating the cultural and historical context of Ball's work and situating Hammer's work in relation to Dada. In a concluding essay, Hammer probes various aspects of Ball's asceticism, spirituality, and sexuality to arrive at a revisionist interpretation of Zurich Dada and the origins of modernism as well as postmodern art-making."--Jacket

5 editions published in 2004 in Italian and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1934, Giuseppe Terragni, the centenary of whose birth is marked by the present exhibition, designed a monument in the mountain region of Asiago to commemorate Roberto Sarfatti, the first-born son of the famous Margherita Sarfatti; he lost his life on the battlefront in 1918. The exhibition situates this and Terragni's other monuments within the larger context of Margherita Sarfatti's role as proponent of 1920s and early 1930s debates on art and architecture. More than 50 of Terragni's original drawings document his research in modern monumentality, among a more ample constellation of monuments of twentieth-century architects, from Loos to Gropius, from Lingeri to Mies, from Aldo Rossi to Carlo Scarpa, represented by original drawings and models
