Portrait of Canterbury
Canterbury has a place in English history quite out of proportion to its relatively small size, and because of this it is one of the select half-dozen or so places which feature on the itineraries of almost every visitor to Britain. John Boyle traced the city's history from the earliest times - including its continuing record of growth from the Saxon period onwards; the story of the coming of St Augustine; the founding of the cathedral, and the growth of the medieval city around it - to the rebuilding of Canterbury after a third of its central area was destroyed by aerial attack in 1942, and years later the coming of the new university. The author also dealt with the lighter side of life, including the festivals and celebrations and the delights of the Garden of England, and revealed many strange, startling and even sensational anecdotes his research disclosed. He depicted a community prosperous and successful, full of vitality, and examined the problems of maintaining tradition and an ancient physical heritage in the face of modern change. Whilst retaining the voice of the original author and his judicious evaluations of the political, professional and cultural society of Canterbury in the 1970s, Elizabeth Edwards has updated his portrait for the 21st century. So much has changed in Canterbury during the past thirty years: our knowledge of its history through the work of the Canterbury Archaeological Trust, the growth in local studies has been considerably deepened; and the sweeping changes to the city's fabric, in response to economic and cultural stimuli, have provided the scope for more extensive excavations. Recent changes have brought more of Canterbury's past and present into perspective, and provide even greater insight into the city's rich history for the contemporary observer. This new edition also includes specially chosen new photographs.

English-Language Poetry from Wales 1789-1806
In the period following the French revolution in 1789, Welsh poets continually reflected on the extraordinary new era in which they lived through their writing. Effortlessly ranging from Wales’s deep and distant history to accounts of the most topical and urgent current affairs, their poems on war, Welshness, druids, parted lovers and sublime landscapes encompass the beautiful, the brutal and the mysterious. Facing a future that often seemed agonisingly uncertain, poets in Wales used their verses to voice their thoughts and feelings about events that had rocked the whole of Europe, and whose effects continued to be felt long after 1789. This new selection of poetry from Wales sets recently-discovered manuscript texts alongside little-known early printed poems, offering a full and accessible introduction to Welsh poetry in English in the period 1780-1820.

Photography, Anthropology and History

Photography, Anthropology and History
Photography, Anthropology and History examines the complex historical relationship between photography and anthropology, and in particular the strong emergence of the contemporary relevance of historical images. Thematically organized, and focusing on the visual practices developed within anthropology as a discipline, this book brings together a range of contemporary and methodologically innovative approaches to the historical image within anthropology. Importantly, it also demonstrates the ongoing relevance of both the historical image and the notion of the archive to recent anthropological thought. As current research rethinks the relationship between photography and anthropology, this volume will serve as a stimulus to this new phase of research as an essential text and methodological reference point in any course that addresses the relationship between anthropology and visuality.

Uncertain Images: Museums and the Work of Photographs
Almost all museums hold photographs in their collections, and museum professionals and their audiences engage with photographs in a myriad of ways. Yet despite some three decades of critical museology and photographic theory, and an extensive debate on the politics of representation, outside art museums, almost no critical attention has been given specifically to the roles, purposes and lives of these photographs within museums. This book brings into focus the ubiquitous yet entirely unconsidered work that photographs are put to in museums. The authors' argument is that there is an economy of photographs in museums which is integral to the processes of the museum, and integral to the understanding of museums. The international contributors, drawn from curators and academics, reflect a range of visual and museological expertise. After an introduction setting out the range of questions and problems, the first part addresses broad curatorial strategies and ways of thinking about photographs in museums. Shifting the emphasis from curatorial practices and anxieties to the space of the gallery, this is followed by a series of case studies of exhibitionary practices and the museum strategies that support them. The third section focuses on the role of photographs in the museum articulation of ’difficult histories’. A final section addresses photograph collections in a digital environment. New technologies and new media have transformed the management, address and purposing in photographs in museums, from cataloguing practices to streaming on social media. These growing practices challenge both traditional hierarchies of knowledge in museums and the location of authority about photographs. The volume emerges from PhotoCLEC, a HERA funded project on museums and the photographic legacy of the colonial past in a postcolonial and multicultural Europe.
