Review Of Philippa Berry, Of Chastity And Power: Elizabethan Literature And The Unmarried Queen, Carole Levin Oct 1990

Review Of Philippa Berry, Of Chastity And Power: Elizabethan Literature And The Unmarried Queen, Carole Levin

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Phillippa Berry has written a solidly researched and ambitious study of the impact of Elizabeth I and the cult of the Virgin Queen on Elizabethan literature. Berry's stated goal is to clarify contradictory relations of gender in the discourses of idealized love of Petrarchan love poetry and Neoplatonic philosophy, which so much influenced Renaissance literature. Berry wishes to explore the interrelationship between the love discourses and the cult of Elizabeth. As her title suggest, Berry is concerned to examine a number of literary texts that intertwine issues of sexual and political power. She argues that in sixteenth-century France as ...


The All Souls Deuteronomy And The Decalogue, Sidnie White Crawford Jun 1990

The All Souls Deuteronomy And The Decalogue, Sidnie White Crawford

Faculty Publications, Classics and Religious Studies Department

4QDtn, the All Souls Deuteronomy, is the best-preserved of all the Deuteronomy manuscripts from Cave 4, Qumran. A photograph and partial translation of the manuscript were published by Frank Moore Cross in 1969 in the catalogue "Scrolls from the Wilderness of the Dead Sea." The manuscript consists of four complete columns and two partially damaged columns. Columns 2-6 are one continuous sheet of leather, with a sewn edge on col. 2. Column 1 has two sewn edges and was originally attached to the beginning of col. 2 (the columns were separated in the process of restoration). The manuscript was well ...

Hermeneutica Gloriae Vs. Hermeneutica Crucis: Sebastian Franck And Martin Luther On The Clarity Of Scripture, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Apr 1990

Hermeneutica Gloriae Vs. Hermeneutica Crucis: Sebastian Franck And Martin Luther On The Clarity Of Scripture, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

Martin Luther maintains throughout his work, and with special emphasis in On the Bondage of the Will, that Scripture is clear. Unlike Erasmus, who warns that we should avoid obscure parts of Scripture that, like the Cave of Corycos, would lure us too close to terrors beyond our comprehension, Luther argues that Scripture has been placed in the clearest light by the coming of Christ, in whom all of Scripture's mysteries have been revealed. If we were to look for a contemporary of Luther's to represent the opposite pole, the obscurity or ambiguity of Scripture, it would not ...

Review Of Susan Dwyer Amussen, An Ordered Society: Gender And Class In Early Modern England, Carole Levin Apr 1990

Review Of Susan Dwyer Amussen, An Ordered Society: Gender And Class In Early Modern England, Carole Levin

Faculty Publications, Department of History

Susan Dwyer Amussen has produced an extremely well-researched and gracefully written study on gender and class in early modern England. Amussen describes her work as in part a response to and continuation of the issues raised by the early classic study of Alice Clark, Working Life of Women in the Seventeenth Century. Amussen argues that "Clark's mistaken placement of the change from household to capitalist production in the seventeenth cen- tury - at least a century before it actually took place - makes it incumbent on students of early modern England to continue to study the family as the fundamental economic ...


Evaluating Uv Absorbers , Patricia Cox Crews, David J. Clark Mar 1990

Evaluating Uv Absorbers , Patricia Cox Crews, David J. Clark

Faculty Publications - Textiles, Merchandising and Fashion Design

UV absorbers and antioxidants topically applied to upholstery fabrics to reduce fading, separately and in conjunction with soil repellent finish formulations containing UV absorbers, were evaluated in this study. Over fifty upholstery fabrics were initially evaluated and fourteen were selected for further study. The fabrics were then topically treated with commercially available soil repellent finishes (a fluorocarbon and a silicone finish) containing UV absorbers or immersion-treated with one of thirteen UV absorbers or antioxidants. Following light exposure, color changes were evaluated visually and instrumentally. The results showed that neither the fluorocarbon nor silicone-based soil repellent finishes containing UV absorbers significantly ...


The Place Of Archery In Greek Warfare, Thomas Nelson Winter Feb 1990

The Place Of Archery In Greek Warfare, Thomas Nelson Winter

Faculty Publications, Classics and Religious Studies Department

Despite the ancient Greek equivalent of an Agincourt, the Greek military mind firmly retained the heavy infantry, rather than the archers, as the main force. Recognized uses of the archer in Greek warfare were to fend off heights of city walls, to perform commando raids, and to provide covering fire for commando-style operations. This essay, written after a fresh reading of the principle Greek historians, puts together all passages where one can see the ancient Greek archer at work and in his military setting.

Review Of Heidelberg Im Säkularen Umbruch. Traditionsbewußtsein Und Kulturpolitik Um 1800, Edited By Friedrich Strack, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Jan 1990

Review Of Heidelberg Im Säkularen Umbruch. Traditionsbewußtsein Und Kulturpolitik Um 1800, Edited By Friedrich Strack, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

This twelfth volume in the Deutscher Idealismus Philosophie und Wirkungsgeschichte in Quellen und Studien series on aspects of German Idealism maintains the high quality set by earlier volumes in this series. It consists of 23 articles that originally were presented at a colloquium held in Heidelberg in the fall of 1985 on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of Heidelberg University. The collection focuses on the period of transition at the University after 1803 when, in the wake of the Napoleonic Wars, the Palatinate was divided and Heidelberg was incorporated into Baden.


The Capitals And Capitols Of Nebraska, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1990

The Capitals And Capitols Of Nebraska, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

When Europeans visit the Great Plains region of the United States, they are impressed by the newness of the place. Coming from communities that often are filled with physical evidence of great age, they are reminded that here virtually none of the visible marks of Euroamerican culture are more than a mere century old. Before 1854, the year in which Nebraska was legislated into existence, permanent residence in this place was technically illegal. Except for the never-numerous Indians, a few fur trappers and traders, and some soldiers and their camp followers clustered around Fort Kearny, Nebraska had no population. It ...


Germans In The New World: Essays In The History Of Immigration, Frederick C. Luebke Jan 1990

Germans In The New World: Essays In The History Of Immigration, Frederick C. Luebke

Faculty Publications, Department of History

In some respects the new immigration history contrasts strongly with the old. Whereas the traditional was assimilationist and stressed the cultural contributions of the newcomers, the new is more often pluralist and focuses on cultural conflict. The old tended to describe individual accomplishment and, drawing upon readily available sources such as letters, speeches, diaries, and other qualitative sources, was unintentionally elitist; the new analyzes the relationships of the ethnic group (i.e., the masses of ordinary people of limited skills in communication) with elements of the receiving society, including other ethnocultural collectivities. It uses quantitative sources, such as census manuscripts ...

On Parasitic Discourse In Till Eulenspiegel: Can We Take It Seriously?, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy Jan 1990

On Parasitic Discourse In Till Eulenspiegel: Can We Take It Seriously?, Priscilla A. Hayden-Roy

German Language and Literature Papers

The issue we are addressing here concerns how – or if -- we can take non-serious language seriously, or even legitimate it. Derrida wishes to consider marginal, parasitic, borderline cases, because they give him “insight into the general functioning of a textual system.” If we simply identify and banish the parasite, we will end up retracing the boundaries of convention; if we look at the parasite as part of a whole system, then our perspective goes beyond that of the insider. This has direct implications for how we interpret Till Eulenspiegel. We can retrace the banishments as they occur repeatedly throughout the ...


Harmonious Compositions: Korolenko's Siberian Stories, Radha Balasubramanian Jan 1990

Harmonious Compositions: Korolenko's Siberian Stories, Radha Balasubramanian

Russian Language and Literature Papers

Vladimir Galaktionovich Korolenko (1853-1921) turned his personal experiences as a political prisoner in Siberia into short stories that champion the talents of Siberia's ordinary people. These stories of Siberia have been noted by critics for their techniques of composition. His contemporaries like A. P. Chekhov and V. M. Garshin praise his craftsmanship and skill to compose aesthetically appealing short stories. Leighton shows how Korolenko, in order to reveal and document facts about different human beings, utilizes various literary devices such as particularized narration (skaz), allegory, contrast, parallel, and lyrical description. According to him, each story is like an "elegant ...

A "Little Book Of Samples": Evidence Of Textiles Traded To The American Indians, Rita J. Adrosko Jan 1990

A "Little Book Of Samples": Evidence Of Textiles Traded To The American Indians, Rita J. Adrosko

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

The original inhabitants of the United States were hunters and farmers, who used the produce of the hunt and of their gardens for food, clothing and shelter, for ritual purposes and pleasure. While some textiles were produced by Indians before the arrival of Europeans, the colorful yardgoods, blankets, kerchiefs, ribbons, and tapes introduced by the Europeans quickly became popular items of trade.

As early as 1685 wool fabrics such as matchcoat (a cloak material), stroudwaters, blankets, and stocking were listed among goods traded by William Perm's agents for lands west of the Delaware River. Two years earlier in a ...


Ancient West Mexican Clothing And Its Ecuadorian Origins: New Evidence Of Maritime Contacts, Patricia Rieff Anawalt Jan 1990

Ancient West Mexican Clothing And Its Ecuadorian Origins: New Evidence Of Maritime Contacts, Patricia Rieff Anawalt

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

Evidence of ancient cultural contacts between coastal Ecuador and the mountains of West Mexico exists in clothing similarities between the two areas, namely tunic-like shirts and short breeches for males and a. tropical mode of dress for females. This non-Mesoamerican attire is illustrated in the early sixteenth century codex Relacion de Michoacan and also appears on mortuary figurines from the deep shaft tombs of Ixtlan del Rio, Nayarit (400 B.C.- A.D. 400). Coeval prototypes of this West Mexican clothing occur archaeologically along that section of the Ecuadorian coast which was the homeland of long-distance merchant navigators. Their trade ...


A Documentation Of African Trade Cloths In The Philadelphia Port Of History Museum, Lisa Aronson Jan 1990

A Documentation Of African Trade Cloths In The Philadelphia Port Of History Museum, Lisa Aronson

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

The Port of History Museum in Philadelphia houses a collection of textiles characteristic of the types the French were trading with Africa between 1880 and 1900 in the early stages of European colonial rule within that continent.1 The collection emerged in the era of "cotton imperialism1 when Europeans began competing with African cloth industries by importing their own cloths to Africa. (Johnson) The economic historian Hopkins reports that by the turn of the century textiles constituted "about a third of the value of total imports into French West Africa and about a quarter of total imports in British West ...


Trade In Hispanic Weavings Of Northern New Mexico And The Social Construction Of Tradition!, Suzanne Baizerman Jan 1990

Trade In Hispanic Weavings Of Northern New Mexico And The Social Construction Of Tradition!, Suzanne Baizerman

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

No discussion of late 20th century trade in textiles - particularly trade in what has been called "regional" or "ethnic" textiles - would be complete without a discussion of the terms "traditional" and "authentic" for these terms inform even a lay person's evaluation of textiles on the market today.

As textile professionals, we encounter terms like "textile tradition," "traditional textiles" or even "authentic traditional textiles" in our everyday experience: a textile brought back by a collector from travel to a Third World nation or a textile on display in a museum. These textiles are subjected to discussions of their authenticity, of ...


Reconstructing The Ancient Aegean/Egyptian Textile Trade, Elizabeth Barber Jan 1990

Reconstructing The Ancient Aegean/Egyptian Textile Trade, Elizabeth Barber

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

For years archaeologists have commented on the occurrence of typically Aegean patterns on the ceilings of a fair number of Egyptian tombs, while musing that they could not see how such patterns were reaching Egypt. Certainly Minoan and Mycenaean potsherds had been found in fair numbers in Egypt; but the designs on the Egyptian ceilings were not the ones used by Aegean potters. To me, however, the particular patterns and layouts seemed strongly reminiscent of weaving —a craft I was quite familiar with, unlike most archaeologists, because my mother was a weaver. If the source of these ceiling patterns were ...


Indian Trade Cloth In Egypt: The Newberry Collection, Ruth Barnes Jan 1990

Indian Trade Cloth In Egypt: The Newberry Collection, Ruth Barnes

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

The Department of Eastern Art in the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford, holds what is undoubtedly one of the largest single collections of block-printed textiles produced in India, but exported to Egypt as part of the medieval Islamic Indian Ocean trade. These textiles, all now mere fragments, are of particular interest for two reasons. Firstly, fabrics of this type give us the earliest surviving examples of Indian weaving, although single fibre fragments have been found at the Indus Valley site of Mohenjo-Daro, dating to the second millenium B.C. , and we have numerous Vedic references to dress and textiles, as well as ...


The American Market For Indian Textiles, 1785-1820: In The Twilight Of Traditional Cloth Manufacture, Susan S. Bean Jan 1990

The American Market For Indian Textiles, 1785-1820: In The Twilight Of Traditional Cloth Manufacture, Susan S. Bean

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

A brisk trade in Indian cloth developed soon after the end of the American War of Independence in 1783 and continued to flourish until Congress enacted a prohibitive tariff in 1816 to protect the nascent U.S. textile manufacturing industry. For the period 1795-1805, U.S. trade with India well exceeded trade with all European nations combined for all commodities (Furber 1938:258). Cloth was the centerpiece of this trade: The piece goods imported in 1804-05, for instance, were about three times the value of all other goods from India, chiefly sugar, indigo, ginger, and a variety of spices and ...


Carpets For Commerce: Rug-Weaving In The Caucasus, Carol Bier Jan 1990

Carpets For Commerce: Rug-Weaving In The Caucasus, Carol Bier

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

At the turn of the 20th century, Caucasian carpets were in great demand among burgeoning European and American middle-class markets. With a history of carpet production going back at least three hundred years, rug-weaving in the Caucasus soared at the turn of the 20th century, first with economic incentives and the encouragement of czarist regimes, later as part of the Soviet economic system. Today, in an age of perestroika and glasnost. rug-weaving in the Caucasus for commerce and export lends itself readily to individual initiatives and private enterprise. Commercial production of carpets continues to be recognized as a means of ...


Labor Organization And Textile Trade In Northern Thailand In The Nineteenth Century, Katherine A. Bowie Jan 1990

Labor Organization And Textile Trade In Northern Thailand In The Nineteenth Century, Katherine A. Bowie

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

The Thai peasant economy has frequently been characterized as a "subsistence economy" in which villagers planted their own rice and wove their own clothing. The uncritical use of the phrase "subsistence economy" has contributed to a series of significant misunderstandings about the character of the Thai peasant political economy, including the social process of cloth production.1

Because most scholars have assumed that obtaining clothing was not a problem for villagers, they have tended to minimize the significance of differences in dress between rich and poor in traditional nineteenth century Thai society. I believe that a better understanding of the ...


British Exports To The U.S.A., 1776-1914: Organisation And Strategy (3) Cottons And Printed Textiues, Stanley Chapman Jan 1990

British Exports To The U.S.A., 1776-1914: Organisation And Strategy (3) Cottons And Printed Textiues, Stanley Chapman

Textile Society of America Symposium Proceedings

One of the most familiar concepts to historians interested in Anglo-American topics is that of the Atlantic Economy. Political independence did not bring economic independence to the newly-found United States, and until after the middle of the nineteenth century trans-Atlantic trade continued much as it was in the colonial period, based on the exchange of primary produce for manufactured goods. Basic statistics confirm that Britain and the United States were each the major trading partner of the other in the first half of the nineteenth century. In this period, between a third and a half of all U.S. imports ...
