On The Marchlands Of Empire: Trade, Diplomacy, And War On The Southeastern Frontier, 1733-1763, Michael James Foret Jan 1990

On The Marchlands Of Empire: Trade, Diplomacy, And War On The Southeastern Frontier, 1733-1763, Michael James Foret

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

Southeastern North America was the scene of international, intercultural, and interethnic frontiers during the first two-thirds of the eighteenth century. Europeans and Indians existed there in greater relative concentrations than anywhere else in North America, and each European colony and Indian nation constituted a different locus of trade, diplomacy, and war. Because of the relatively high population density and national and ethnic complexity of the region, commercial, diplomatic, and military relations there exhibited a different character than in earlier-colonized regions from Virginia northward and in the Caribbean.;The southeastern Indians existed in a state of dependency in the eighteenth century ...


The Winds Of War And Change: The Impact Of The Tuscarora War On Proprietary North Carolina, 1690-1729, Christine Ann Styrna Jan 1990

The Winds Of War And Change: The Impact Of The Tuscarora War On Proprietary North Carolina, 1690-1729, Christine Ann Styrna

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

The Tuscarora War marked a major turning point in the development of proprietary North Carolina. Beginning in 1711 and continuing for two years, the war rendered the central coastal plains a virtual wasteland and plunged the colony into an economic recession. Only the arrival of South Carolina troops in 1712 and 1713 saved North Carolina from complete destruction.;While the defeat of the Tuscaroras marked the end of their dominance along the North Carolina coastal plains, the war also served as a major catalyst behind political, economic, and demographic developments in the colony. During the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries ...


Going, Going, Gone.......... But Where? A Slightly Sad Look At A House Sale, Kathleen Adams Jan 1990

Going, Going, Gone.......... But Where? A Slightly Sad Look At A House Sale, Kathleen Adams

The George Eliot Review

During the last decade Antique and Collectors' Fairs have flourished in Britain and are a very popular way for many of the population to spend a pleasant afternoon browsing amongst the items for sale. Forty years ago, when I began collecting - in a very modest way - antique shops were way out of my bracket and it was in junk shops that I picked up what I now regard as bargains. In those days few people seemed to be collecting pretty pieces of china or old pieces of brass and the prices were low. Junk shops, particularly in the poorer parts ...


Review Of Octavia Hill, Jonathan Ouvry, Gillian Darley Jan 1990

Review Of Octavia Hill, Jonathan Ouvry, Gillian Darley

The George Eliot Review

I find that objectivity is difficult to achieve when considering a work by or about someone with whom I have a family relationship, however distant. In the case of Octavia Hill, my great-great-aunt, I have been aware of her all my life as a figure revered in the family. Outside the family I have been aware of her work in the field of housing through my involvement with the Housing Association that bears her name, and of her role as one of the three founders of the National Trust.

It is perhaps surprising that there has been no full length ...


Villanescas Of The Virtuosi: Lasso And The Commedia Dell'arte, Martha Farahat Jan 1990

Villanescas Of The Virtuosi: Lasso And The Commedia Dell'arte, Martha Farahat

Performance Practice Review

"Little is known about the music of the 16th- and 17th-c. Commedia dell'arte due to the improvisatory nature of the genre. The most detailed account of a commedia performance is in the composer Massimo Troiano's Discorsi... describing the festivities on the occasion of the wedding of Wilhelm V, Duke of Bavaria and Renee of Lorraine (1568). This account only mentions a few musical pieces: the music between acts and one internal song by Roland de Lassus, the kapellmeister. It is possible that Troiano did not mention all the music; close scrutiny of Lassus's 1581 Libri di villanelle ...

A Letter By The Composer About "Giovanni D'Arco" And Some Remarks On The Division Of Musical Direction In Verdi's Day, Martin Chusid Jan 1990

A Letter By The Composer About "Giovanni D'Arco" And Some Remarks On The Division Of Musical Direction In Verdi's Day, Martin Chusid

Performance Practice Review

A relatively long letter from Giuseppe Verdi to the Florentine vocal director Pietro Romani, reproduced here, indicates the tempos for individual numbers of his opera Giovanna d'Arco. Verdi had a general preference for quicker tempos. The letter also provides valuable evidence for the different roles of the vocal director (Maestro di cappella, Maestro al cembalo, Maestro della musica, Maestro delle opere, or Maestro concertatore) and concertmaster, who served as the orchestra's leader, suggesting an account of the evolution of divided direction of Italian opera into the modern situation of direction by a single conductor.

The task will be to bring to light the repressions necessary to sustain the new science of language and its newly found object and to examine its alleged scientific neutrality.


Feminist Literary Criticism And The Author, Cheryl Walker Jan 1990

Feminist Literary Criticism And The Author, Cheryl Walker

Scripps Faculty Publications and Research

In the course of this essay I wish to reopen the (never fully closed) question of whether it is advisable to speak of the author, or of what Foucault calls "the author function," when querying a text, and I wish to reopen it precisely at the site where feminist criticism and post-structuralism are presently engaged in dialogue. Here in particular we might expect that reasons for rejecting author erasure would appear. However, theoretically informed feminist critics have recently found themselves tempted to agree with Barthes, Foucault, and the Edward Said of Beginnings that the authorial presence is best set aside ...


Facing Both Ways : Yan Fu, Hu Shi, And Chen Duxiu : Chinese Intellectuals And The Meaning Of Modern Science, 1895-1923, Niobeh Crowfoot Tsaba Jan 1990

Facing Both Ways : Yan Fu, Hu Shi, And Chen Duxiu : Chinese Intellectuals And The Meaning Of Modern Science, 1895-1923, Niobeh Crowfoot Tsaba

Dissertations and Theses

The concern of Chinese intellectuals with the "idea" of modern science from the West in the transition generation from 1895 to 1923 was fundamentally a concern about "national survival" and modernity. The value and meaning that accrued to science as "method" -- as a "thinking technique" -- and to the evolutionary ideas of Charles Darwin and Herbert Spencer as the "science of choice" among Chinese intellectuals of this period, was due to belief or disbelief in the power of these ideas to describe, explain, or solve the problematic of "modernity" in a Chinese context.

Incidental Effects Of Church Activity On Development, Landscapes And Culture: An Example From Tonga, Sosaia Hakaumotu Naulu Jan 1990

Incidental Effects Of Church Activity On Development, Landscapes And Culture: An Example From Tonga, Sosaia Hakaumotu Naulu

All Theses and Dissertations

The effect of religious bodies upon the economy, landscape and culture of developing countries is a topic that needs further study. Intuitively, mission work in such lands would seems to have some impact but the actual conditions and changes are not carefully defined. This thesis seeks to describe one instance, the effect of the LDS Church upon Tonga. Here the Church is a fairly recent entrant into the land and its effects may readily be seen.

The LDS Church was found to play a modest role in the economy and a much greater role in changing landscapes. It is seen ...

The Triumph Of Spirit Over Law: Free Will Versus Determinism In Adam Bede, William Klein Jan 1990

The Triumph Of Spirit Over Law: Free Will Versus Determinism In Adam Bede, William Klein

The George Eliot Review

One of the primary intellectual influences that shaped George Eliot's thought was positivism, or rather the various influence of positivistic philosophers such as Comte, Mill, Spencer, Feuerbach and Lewes, who each in his own way subscribed to an empiricism dictating that knowledge of anything but actual phenomena is impossible, and thus rejected any metaphysical speculation concerning ultimate causes or origins. This is a broad definition of positivism, and perhaps generalizes at the expense of the fine points of the thinkers under discussion; however, George Eliot's ultimate rejection of the notion of a God whose existence cannot be empirically ...


A Letter From George, Kathleen Adams Jan 1990

A Letter From George, Kathleen Adams

The George Eliot Review

BBC CWR is a new local radio station launched at the beginning of the year to cover Coventry and Warwickshire. It became clear very early on that the station wished to show an interest in and pay tribute to George Eliot. A Letter from George was their first attempt and from the success of this I feel we can look forward to a long period of co-operation between the Fellowship and the BBC in Warwickshire in relation to George Eliot.

In choosing eight episodes of about ten minutes each it was inevitable that the life of the novelist would be ...


Review Of Annotated Critical Bibliography Of George Eliot, Graham Handley, George Levine Jan 1990

Review Of Annotated Critical Bibliography Of George Eliot, Graham Handley, George Levine

The George Eliot Review

No complete bibliography of George Eliot's works and the biography, scholarship and criticism on her exists. This compilation, which is heavily selective and inconsistent, is a great disappointment. Editions of George Eliot's writings are not included, and the selection contains a number of gaps. For example, Valentine Cunningham's Everywhere Spoken Against (1975) is not included. I find it hard to justify the publication of this book: 128 pages, with 3 -6 entries per page bringing us to a grand total of 3 82 - a fraction of what is worth recording - means that by any standards this is ...


The Kapellmeister, Bill Adams Jan 1990

The Kapellmeister, Bill Adams

The George Eliot Review

"Rosamond played admirably. Her master at Mrs. Lemon's school (close to a county town with a memorable history that had its relics in church and castle) was one of those excellent musicians here and there to be found in our provinces, worthy to compare with many a noted Kapellmeister in a country which offers more plentiful conditions of musical celebrity. Rosamond, with the executant's instinct, had seized his manner of playing, and gave forth his large rendering of noble music with the precision of an echo. It was almost startling, heard for the first time. A hidden soul ...


Review Of Adam Bede At The Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, Surrey, Rosalind Holt Jan 1990

Review Of Adam Bede At The Orange Tree Theatre, Richmond, Surrey, Rosalind Holt

The George Eliot Review

Gaps in appreciation.

The rash boast of many an English teacher - that Middlemarch is the greatest novel in our language - is enough to put most people off literature for life.

City Limits

Dinah Morris ... played ... has a warm humanity which is a distinct improvement on the preachifying original.

The Staines Informer

Some of our best stories are buried in thick tomes, accessible only to literature students who often fail to appreciate their beauty, or to academics.

Surrey Comet

.... thankless task ... as Seth Bede, the least satisfactory character in the novel

Financial Times

I remember repeatedly falling asleep over the book ...


Archaeological Survey For Proposed Landfill Expansion (Phase I), City Of Del Rio, Val Verde County, Texas, Ronald W. Burkett Jan 1990

Archaeological Survey For Proposed Landfill Expansion (Phase I), City Of Del Rio, Val Verde County, Texas, Ronald W. Burkett

Index of Texas Archaeology: Open Access Gray Literature from the Lone Star State

A cultural resource pedestrian survey was conducted within a 105-acre tract acquired by the City of Del Rio, Val Verde County. for a landfill expansion project September 25 and 26,1989. The results of this surface reconnaissance resulted in the recording of one prehistoric site (41 VV 1251).

Early Archaic points were found to be eroding at a depth of 60 cm in an erosional cut, and temporally undiagnostic bifaces and biface fragments were exposed on and just under the surface. In addition, a proximal fragment of a Paleo-Indian Clovis point was surface collected outside the study area at a ...
