The German Jewish Experience Revisited

In the past decades the “German-Jewish phenomenon” (Derrida) has increasingly attracted the attention of scholars from various fields: Jewish studies, intellectual history, philosophy, literary and cultural studies, critical theory. In all its complex dimensions, the post-enlightenment German-Jewish experience is overwhelmingly regarded as the most quintessential and charged meeting of Jews with the project of modernity. Perhaps for this reason, from the eighteenth century through to our own time it has been the object of intense reflection, of clashing interpretations and appropriations. In both micro and macro case-studies, this volume engages the multiple perspectives as advocated by manifold interested actors, and analyzes their uses, biases and ideological functions over time in different cultural, disciplinary and national contexts. This volume includes both historical treatments of differing German-Jewish understandings of their experience – their relations to their Judaism, general culture and to other Jews – and contemporary reflections and competing interpretations as to how to understand the overall experience of German Jewry.

Written over a thirty-five year career, the essays in Civilizing the Museum introduce students to the powerful, sometimes contested, and often unrealized notion that museums should welcome all because they house the collective memory of all. Drawing on her experience working in and with museums in the US and throughout the world, Author Elaine Heumann Gurian explores the possibilities for making museums more central and relevant to society. The twenty-two essays are organized around five main themes: * museum definitions * civic responsibility and social service * architectural spaces * exhibitions * spirituality and rationality. And these themes address the elements that would make museums more inclusive such as: * exhibition technique * space configurations * the personality of the director * the role of social service * power sharing * types of museums * the need for emotion humour and spirituality. Without abandoning the traditional museum processes, Gurian shows how museums can honour tradition whilst embracing the new. Enriched by her experience in groundbreaking museums, Gurian has provided a book that provokes thought, dialogue and action for students and professionals in the field to realize the inclusive potential of museums.

Building on the groundbreaking book Art in a City by John Willet, which first surveyed the history of visual arts in Liverpool, this engaging follow-up explores contemporary Liverpudlian art by looking at it from alternative perspectives. Exploring and challenging the claim that Liverpool is Britain’s second city for art, Art in a City Revisited surveys key institutional players such as the Bluecoat and the Walker Gallery, as well as the Tate Liverpool, FACT, and the Liverpool Biennial. A volume with rich discussion on the nature of artistic patronage, the changing role of public art, and the social and community role of the artist—including contributions from Sean Cubitt and Mary Jane Jacob—this book is a major consideration of the role art plays in city regeneration and the future of Liverpool as a center of creative industry.

The gilded city of Hartford triumphantly returns in this volume, Victorian Hartford Revisited, a compilation of many never before published images of Victorian splendor and incredible architecture. The social, economic, cultural, and architectural center of the state went through unparalleled growth after the Civil War. Demand for new technology made Hartford not only the political capital but the epicenter of the Industrial Revolution in the region. Tremendous wealth accumulated and materialized in the form of extensive estates, historic parks, magnificent schools, churches, public buildings, grand hotels, and a multitude of immigrant housing. This once Colonial port city along the Connecticut River rose to epitomize America's Victorian age, and it is captured within these impressive pages.

This essay collection, by scholars from both the United States and Europe, carefully examines the artwork of one of the most important 20th-century American painters and printmakers, George Bellows. It builds on the Columbus Museum of Art’s 2013 exhibition, George Bellows and the American Experience, and the National Gallery of Art’s 2012 exhibition, George Bellows. The volume offers innovative research that explores his oeuvre from multiple viewpoints. The essays challenge widely held perceptions of Bellows, such as his Americanness, hyper-masculinity, patronage, response to the World War I, and his relationship to fellow artist Edward Hopper. This is an essential collection for any serious study on Bellows’ work.
