Book Discord and Consensus in the Low Countries  1700 2000

Download or read book Discord and Consensus in the Low Countries 1700 2000 written by Jane Fenoulhet and published by UCL Press. This book was released on 2016-05-02 with total page 236 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: All countries, regions and institutions are ultimately built on a degree of consensus, on a collective commitment to a concept, belief or value system. This consensus is continuously rephrased and reinvented through a narrative of cohesion and challenged by expressions of discontent and discord. The history of the Low Countries is characterised by both a striving for consensus and eruptions of discord, both internally and from external challenges. This interdisciplinary volume explores consensus and discord in a Low Countries context along broad cultural, linguistic and historical lines. Disciplines represented include early-modern and contemporary history; art history; film; literature; and translation scholars from both the Low Countries and beyond.

Book New Trends in Modern Dutch Literature

Download or read book New Trends in Modern Dutch Literature written by G. J. Dorleijn and published by Peeters Publishers. This book was released on 2006 with total page 192 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This volume contains a selection of essays presented at the international conference of Cultural Crises in Art and Literature, held in Groningen in November 2002, in special sessions concerning modern Dutch literature. The recent decennia have shown a gradual transition in Netherlandic Studies towards new scopes: a contextual orientation of literature and the reception of 'Theory'. The contributions to this volume touch upon the theme of cultural crises from the perspective of these frameworks, approaching topics like the interrelation of literary representation and historical and medical discourse concerning the obsession by dirt, contamination, and dust; the impact of nationalism and humanism (in the political field) on literary education; the decline of modernism, resulting in the changing position of women authors, the rise of children's literature and the reassessment of 'low' genres like melodrama. A brief outline of the development of the study of modern Dutch literature opens this volume, the presentation of a general theoretical and methodological framework for conceptualizing the notion of cultural crisis concludes it.

Book Making the Personal Political

Download or read book Making the Personal Political written by Jane Fenoulhet and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2017-12-02 with total page 230 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "Making the Personal Political is an interdisciplinary account of a now forgotten success story in the history of the society and culture of the Netherlands. While Dutch women had apparently retreated into domesticity after gaining the vote in 1919, women writers were out there in the market place selling the inside story of women's lives. Eight case studies of women writers between 1919 and 1970 trace the unconscious politics of the personal in narratives of women's identity and experience through close readings of texts located in the culture of the time. Jane Fenoulhet, whose knowledge of Dutch literature and culture in the twentieth century is unparallelled in the English-speaking world, tracks the public representation of women's private project of self development to the moment when the personal is finally accepted as politically important in Dutch society."

Book Along the Archival Grain

Download or read book Along the Archival Grain written by Ann Laura Stoler and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2010-01-25 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Along the Archival Grain offers a unique methodological and analytic opening to the affective registers of imperial governance and the political content of archival forms. In a series of nuanced mediations on the nature of colonial documents from the nineteenth-century Netherlands Indies, Ann Laura Stoler identifies the social epistemologies that guided perception and practice, revealing the problematic racial ontologies of that confused epistemic space. Navigating familiar and extraordinary paths through the lettered lives of those who ruled, she seizes on moments when common sense failed and prevailing categories no longer seemed to work. She asks not what colonial agents knew, but what happened when what they thought they knew they found they did not. Rejecting the notion that archival labor be approached as an extractive enterprise, Stoler sets her sights on archival production as a consequential act of governance, as a field of force with violent effect, and not least as a vivid space to do ethnography.

Book I Amsterdam

Download or read book I Amsterdam written by Martin Bril and published by Artimo. This book was released on 2004 with total page 271 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Amsterdam is a woman. It has to be. Amsterdam is a woman I've been in love with for many years, sometimes passionately. But with this love there also have been long periods of silence, shyness, and caution. And yet, every now and then, in lurid, brief moments, Amsterdam looks at me and I look back at her. I sense that our love is mutual. These moments are scarce, maybe even temporary illusions that only take place in my imagination. But, deep down, I desire Amsterdam so much that I risk making a fool of myself in the power of her gaze." --Martin Bril Within "I Amsterdam," we glimpse Amsterdam's promise, diversity, and wealth of opportunity, which serve to maintain its prominence as a European capital and a world city. The vibrant mixture of Amsterdam's city fabric allows for interests of all kinds to live and function comfortably together. Whether people go to Amsterdam for business, study, tourism, or living, they always arrive at a city that is open, human, and tolerant.This selection of works from the international ad campaign of KesselsKramer for Amsterdam features photographs by Koos Breukel, Hans Eijkelboom, Dana Lixenberg, Dorothee Meyer, and others.
