Hartly House, Calcutta - Phebe Gibbes (Paperback, 2nd edition): Michael J. Franklin Hartly House, Calcutta - Phebe Gibbes (Paperback, 2nd edition)
Michael J. Franklin
R337 Discovery Miles 3 370 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

This novel is a designedly political document. Written at the time of the Hastings impeachment and set in the period of Hastings's Orientalist government, Hartly House, Calcutta (1789) represents a dramatic delineation of the Anglo-Indian encounter. The novel constitutes a significant intervention in the contemporary debate concerning the nature of Hastings's rule of India by demonstrating that it was characterised by an atmosphere of intellectual sympathy and racial tolerance. Within a few decades the Evangelical and Anglicising lobbies frequently condemned Brahmans as devious beneficiaries of a parasitic priestcraft, but Phebe Gibbes's portrayal of Sophia's Brahman and the religion he espouses represent a perception of India dignified by a sympathetic and tolerant attempt to dispel prejudice. -- .

Romantic Representations of British India (Paperback): Michael J. Franklin Romantic Representations of British India (Paperback)
Michael J. Franklin
R860 Discovery Miles 8 600 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Michael J. Franklin's Romantic Representations of British India is a timely study of the impact of Orientalist knowledge upon British culture during the Romantic period. The subject of the book is not so much India, but the British cultural understanding of India, particularly between 1750 and 1850. Franklin opens up new areas of investigation in Romantic-period culture, as those texts previously located in the ghetto of `Anglo-Indian writing' are restored to a central place in the wider field of Romanticism. The essays within this collection cover a wide range of topics and are written by an impressive troupe of contributors including P.J. Marshall, Anne Mellor, and Nigel Leask. Students and academics involved with literary studies and history will find this book extremely useful, though musicologists and historians of science and of religion will also make good use of the book, as will those interested in questions of gender, race, and colonialism.

Incomplete Archaeologies (Paperback): Emily Miller Bonney, Kathryn J. Franklin, James A Johnson Incomplete Archaeologies (Paperback)

Incomplete Archaeologies takes a familiar archaeological concept - assemblages - and reconsiders such groupings, collections and sets of things from the perspective of the work required to assemble them. The discussions presented here engage with the practices of collection, construction, performance and creation in the past (and present) which constitute the things and groups of things studied by archaeologists - and examine as well how these things and thing-groups are dismantled, rearranged, and even destroyed, only to be rebuilt and recreated. The ultimate aim is to reassert an awareness of the incompleteness of assemblage, and thus the importance of practices of assembling (whether they seem at first creative or destructive) for understanding social life in the past as well as the present. The individual chapters represent critical engagements with this aim by archaeologists presenting a broad scope of case studies from Eurasia and the Mediterranean. Case studies include discussions of mortuary practice from numerous angles, the sociopolitics of metallurgy, human-animal relationships, landscape and memory, the assembly of political subjectivity and the curation of sovereignty. These studies emphasise the incomplete and ongoing nature of social action in the past, and stress the critical significance of a deeper understanding of formation processes as well as contextual archaeologies to practices of archaeology, museology, art history, and other related disciplines. Contributors challenge archaeologists and others to think past the objects in the assemblage to the practices of assembling, enabling us to consider not only plural modes of interacting with and perceiving things, spaces, human bodies and temporalities in the past, but also to perhaps discover alternate modes of framing these interactions and relationships in our analyses. Ultimately then, Incomplete Archaeologies takes aim at the perceived totality not only of assemblages of artefacts on shelves and desks, but also that of some of archaeology's seeming-seamless epistemological objects.

J. Franklin
R1,753 Discovery Miles 17 530 Shipped within 7 - 12 working days

Mathematics is as much a science of the real world as biology is. It is the science of the world's quantitative aspects (such as ratio) and structural or patterned aspects (such as symmetry). The book develops a complete philosophy of mathematics that contrasts with the usual Platonist and nominalist options.

This book provides an overview of crowdsourced data management. Covering all aspects including the workflow, algorithms and research potential, it particularly focuses on the latest techniques and recent advances. The authors identify three key aspects in determining the performance of crowdsourced data management: quality control, cost control and latency control. By surveying and synthesizing a wide spectrum of studies on crowdsourced data management, the book outlines important factors that need to be considered to improve crowdsourced data management. It also introduces a practical crowdsourced-database-system design and presents a number of crowdsourced operators. Self-contained and covering theory, algorithms, techniques and applications, it is a valuable reference resource for researchers and students new to crowdsourced data management with a basic knowledge of data structures and databases.

This completes a three-volume documentary history of the work of John Franklin Jameson. Composed principally of Jameson's extensive public and private correspondence, Volume 3 highlights his most important contributions as managing editor of the "American Historical Review," director of the Department of Historical Research at the Carnegie Institution in Washington, fund-raiser for the "Dictionary of American Biography," and, most important, chief architect and promoter of both the American Council of Learned Societies and the National Archives. This volume brings once more to life a man whose deeds and thoughts continue to influence the world we live in.

John Franklin Jameson (1859-1937) was instrumental in the development of history as an academic discipline in the United States. After the Johns Hopkins University awarded him its first doctorate in history, he became a founder of the American Historical Review and was a key figure in the creation of the National Archives, the National Historical Publications Commission, and the Dictionary of American Biography. The first volume of Jameson's papers (Georgia, 1993) provided a representative view of his scholarly concerns and his public positions as an advocate for history through a selection of his lectures, speeches, essays, and articles. The present volume includes diary entries, published here in full for the first time, which cover virtually all of Jameson's collegiate and graduate education and his early teaching career. Also included are letters and official reports that further trace Jameson's emergence as a historian and the strategy he mapped out for promoting historical scholarship. These documents illuminate Jameson's undergraduate career at Amherst, his graduate education and teaching at Johns Hopkins, his tenure as a professor at Brown, and his direction of the history department at the University of Chicago, focusing here mainly on his efforts to establish an institutional home for history at the Carnegie Institution of Washington. The third, and final, volume will also include letters and official reports, and will begin with Jameson's appointment in 1905 as director of the Department of Historical Research at the Carnegie Institution of Washington.
