"Nothing Done!”: The Poet In Early Nineteenth-Century American Culture, Jill Anderson Dec 1999

"Nothing Done!”: The Poet In Early Nineteenth-Century American Culture, Jill Anderson

Jill E. Anderson

In this dissertation, I argue that early nineteenth-century American poets’ and readers’ interpretations of Romanticism shaped their understanding of the role poetry and its producers could play in a developing national culture. By examining the public careers and private sentiments of four male poets — William Cullen Bryant, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Edgar Allan Poe, and Jones Very — I analyze how each reconciled poetic vocation with the moral and economic obligations associated with the attainment of manhood. I locate these poets and their critics within specific historical discourses of aesthetic reception and production, focusing on the tensions and overlaps between Scottish Common-sense ...


The Public Sphere And Party Change: Explaining The Modernization Of The Australian Labor Party In The 1960s, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer Dec 1999

The Public Sphere And Party Change: Explaining The Modernization Of The Australian Labor Party In The 1960s, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer

Terry Irving

This article argues that the modernization of the Australian Labor Party was not inevitable or necessary. The party did not modernize because it was overly dominated by trade unions, because society had changed, or because class was no longer central. Instead the transformation of the party was the result of a series of political struggles, in which the modernizers grasped new resources in the changing public sphere - the dynamic new media of post-war Australia.


Should We All Be More English? Liang Qichao, Rudolf Von Jhering, And Rights, Stephen C. Angle Dec 1999

Should We All Be More English? Liang Qichao, Rudolf Von Jhering, And Rights, Stephen C. Angle

Stephen C. Angle

Rudolf von Jhering (1818-92) published Der Kampf ums Recht (The Struggle for Law) in 1872. He was already regarded as one of Germany’s most important legal philosophers, and Der Kampf helped to ensure a world-wide reputation. His argument that people should be less like the “adult children” of China and more like the English found audiences everywhere, including China, where Der Kampf was translated between 1900 and 1901. Jhering’s doctrines stimulated Liang Qichao (1873-1929), one of China’s leading thinkers, to publish “Lun Quanli Sixiang (On Rights Consciousness),” in 1902 as part of his manifesto On the New ...


Labour Historians As Labour Intellectuals: Generations And Crises, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer Dec 1998

Labour Historians As Labour Intellectuals: Generations And Crises, Terry Irving, Sean Scalmer

Terry Irving

Over the last nine decades Australian labour historians have been engaged in a massive, ongoing, fractious, collective intellectual project. This chapter argues that labour historians should understand their role historically, as labour intellectuals, and sketches three generational moments in the history of labour history intellectuals. We conclude that labour history is a popular, collective, democratic, regional, and political form of history-writing.

Working Toward A "Shared Authority" In The Discipline And Content Of Public Hlstory: A Case Study, Ruth E. Bryan Dec 1998

Working Toward A "Shared Authority" In The Discipline And Content Of Public Hlstory: A Case Study, Ruth E. Bryan

Ruth E. Bryan

This paper explores the meaning of “public history” using Michael Frisch’s concept of a “shared authority” (A Shared Authority, 1990) through a case study of the reviews of two edited and published oral histories, Outside the Magic Circle: The Autobiography of Virginia Foster Durr (ed. Hollinger F. Barnard, 1985) and All is Never Said: The Narrative of Odette Harper Hines (ed. Judith Rollins, 1995). The result is that although history can be produced by historians with the public and about the public, public history cannot be truly an authoritative history (making explicit connections between facts, narrative, and the purpose ...

An American Generational Autobiography: Collective Identity In Malcolm Cowley's Exile's Return, John Hazlett

John D Hazlett

In the following chapter from Hazlett's book My Generation: Collective Autobiography and Identity Politics, the author argues that Malcolm Cowley's Exile's Return pioneered a new form of autobiographical narrative--the generational autobiography. Cowley's text relies for its underlying ideas of collective identity on generational theory, Marxism, and Emersoniansm.

Mapping The Space Of Time: Temporal Representation In The Historical Sciences, Robert J. O’Hara Dec 1995

Mapping The Space Of Time: Temporal Representation In The Historical Sciences, Robert J. O’Hara

Robert J. O’Hara

William Whewell (1794–1866), polymathic Victorian scientist, philosopher, historian, and educator, was one of the great neologists of the nineteenth century. Although Whewell’s name is little remembered today except by professional historians and philosophers of science, researchers in many scientific fields work each day in a world that Whewell named. “Miocene” and “Pliocene,” “uniformitarian” and “catastrophist,” “anode” and “cathode,” even the word “scientist” itself—all of these were Whewell coinages. Whewell is particularly important to students of the historical sciences for another word he coined, one that was unfortunately not as successful as many of his others because it ...


A New Concept Of "History": A Dialogue Between Reinhart Koselleck And Chela Sandoval, Ruth E. Bryan Dec 1995

A New Concept Of "History": A Dialogue Between Reinhart Koselleck And Chela Sandoval, Ruth E. Bryan

Ruth E. Bryan

This paper explore the meaning and conception of “history” as used by Chela Sandoval in her article “U.S. Third World Feminism: The Theory and Method of Oppositional Consciousness in the Postmodern World” (1991) and Reinhart Koselleck in his book of essays, Futures Past (1985). For both writers, "history” is based in the relationship of past experience to future expectations. However, for Koselleck, “history” contains the expectation of positive progress. Thus, in his conception, all people have the same general experience (a conception of the past), therefore we all conceptualize history in the same way, therefore we are all equally ...

Les Origines Du Socialisme Parlementaire En Australie, 1850-1920, Terry Irving

Challenges To Labour History, Terry Irving Dec 1993

Challenges To Labour History, Terry Irving

Terry Irving

The decline of the labour movement in the 1980s and 1990s robbed labour history of its elan as 'history with a social purpose', and the rise of postmodernism devalued the attempt by labour historians to grasp social reality as a whole. Today there is a commonly expressed feeling that labour history is experiencing a crisis. The first three essays in this volume are historiographical; then four essays engage with the challenges posed by post-modernism and cultural theory; and finally four essays present examples of the ways in which theoretical reappraisals can shape the writing of labour history.

Generational Theory And Collective Autobiography, John D. Hazlett Dec 1991

Generational Theory And Collective Autobiography, John D. Hazlett

John D Hazlett

Hazlett's essay examines the emergence of generational theory at the beginning of the 20th Century, considers some of the reasons for its popularity, and then shows how generationalism influenced the autobiographical writing of two self-proclaimed generational groups: the writers who came of age in the 1920s, and the group of activists and writers who came of age in the 1960s.


New Light On 'How Labour Governs': Rediscovered Political Writings By Vere Gordon Childe, Terry Irving Apr 1988

New Light On 'How Labour Governs': Rediscovered Political Writings By Vere Gordon Childe, Terry Irving

Terry Irving

This article uses four rediscovered political essays by Gordon Childe to revise certain accounts of his political thought in the period when he was writing 'How Labour Governs' (1923). It shows that he was not a syndicalist; that he would not be hostile 'to a real Labor government'; that he had not renounced working-class politics; but that he was concerned about the negative effects of Labor's obsession with capturing the state on working class solidarity.
