Would 'The Making Of The English Working Class' Get Made Today?, Rowan Cahill Jan 2013

Would 'The Making Of The English Working Class' Get Made Today?, Rowan Cahill

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

It is fifty years since leftist publisher Victor Gollancz published The Making of the English Working Class by English historian Edward Palmer Thompson (1924–1993). During 2013, this event has been, and is being, commemorated globally in political and scholarly conferences and journals. My dilapidated copy is the Penguin revised edition (1968), purchased in 1970. Still in print, and with more than a million copies sold worldwide, Thompson’s hugely influential doorstop book is regarded as a pivotal exploration of social history, as much an historical classic as it is a literary classic. The book runs to some 900 pages ...

A Line Made By Walking And Assembling Bits And Pieces Of The Bodywork Of Illegally Dumped Cars Found At The Edge Of Roads And Tracks In The Illawarra Escarpment (Curating Cities Database), Brogan Bunt Jan 2013

A Line Made By Walking And Assembling Bits And Pieces Of The Bodywork Of Illegally Dumped Cars Found At The Edge Of Roads And Tracks In The Illawarra Escarpment (Curating Cities Database), Brogan Bunt

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

To reflect on the Illawarra culture of dumping rubbish in the local escarpment bush.

To reflect on the limited capacity of art to effectively intervene in the culture of dumping – perhaps only through doubling and complicity is anything possible?

To remediate Land Art traditions by intervening not in nature itself, but in a layer of impure addition and by deliberately avoiding the grand scale of 60’s US Land Art. The work also plays homage to the cutting works of Gordon Matta-Clark

A Line Made By Walking And Assembling Bits And Pieces Of The Bodywork Of Illegally Dumped Cars Found At The Edge Of Roads And Tracks In The Illawarra Escarpment, Brogan S. Bunt

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Make seven walks up from my home to places where there are illegally dumped cars in the escarpment bush. On each occasion, cut out a square section of a car with an angle grinder and carry the piece home.

This scheme provides the basis for a work that responds to the impure complexity of the local illawarra environment. The aim is not only to intervene, in a small way, within sites of vandalism, but also to descend down into the space where car and forest meet. The work takes shape partly as a set of sculptural samples and absences, and ...


Book Review: The Self-Made Map: Cartographic Writing In Early Modern France; And, The Face Of The Earth: Natural Landscapes, Science And Culture, Michael G. Leggett Jan 2013

Book Review: The Self-Made Map: Cartographic Writing In Early Modern France; And, The Face Of The Earth: Natural Landscapes, Science And Culture, Michael G. Leggett

Faculty of Law, Humanities and the Arts - Papers

Politics, and (therefore) national and personal identity, are at the core of these two publications. The analysis of the remarkable period of European (and therefore world) history during the early modern period of the 15th and 16th centuries is discussed in the first book and provides the call for the kind of topographic descriptions compiled during the early part of the 21st Century, the topic of the second book. Then as now, proliferation of technology and political change provide the background to these accounts—overtly in the first, occluded in the second.
