      Memorialising memory : a material culture approach to older people's responses to the death of a partner.

      Summary
      • Abstract: This empirical study uses qualitative methods to investigate experiences of bereavement after the death of a partner. The original research aim was to study the implications of death among older people, including those from ethnic minority groups, a neglected area of study. The research included participant observation at lunch clubs in centres attended by older White British and African Caribbean people, and semi-structured interviews recorded in 2007-2008 with 20 men and women over 60. Most participants lived in the city, and a small number lived in a rural area. African Caribbean interviewees were in the minority. The study took a material culture approach to bereavement; this generated data revealing what practical things people did, and what was important for them when their partner died. It found that in identifying 'ordinary' funeral practices people show their identifications with particular groups. Choices made by surviving spouses when dealing with the residual materiality of their partner's life revealed their agency in restoring a life for themselves despite living with loss. From an analysis of the data, themes were developed in relation to the literature. Death was studied through the lens of the intersubjective and embodied relationship of the marital couple, particularly in home life. Research questions asked what part material culture plays in the experience of bereavement; how memorialisation might enable the continued agency of the deceased; and whether and how 'ancestors' are created in Britain. The thesis follows the transition l1f a living person from their dying and death through to their funeral and disposal, and l1n to their formal and informal memorialisation. The research confirms that the deceased can continue to have a 'presence' and agency, which is not necessarily problematic, in the lives of bereaved people. In particular, it reveals the importance of everyday habits and practices in memorialisation.

      Summary
      • The material and visual culture of the Islamic World casts vast arcs through space and time, and encompasses a huge range of artefacts and monuments from the minute to the grandiose, from ceramic pots to the great mosques. Here, Venetia Porter and Mariam Rosser-Owen assemble leading experts in the field to examine both the objects themselves and the ways in which they reflect their historical, cultural and economic contexts. With a focus on metalwork, this volume includes an important new study of Mosul metalwork and presents recent discoveries in the fields of Fatimid, Mamluk and Qajar metalwork. By examining architecture, ceramics, ivories and textiles, seventeenth-century Iranian painting and contemporary art, the book explores a wide range of artistic production and historical periods from the Umayyad caliphate to the modern Middle East. This rich and detailed volume makes a significant contribution to the fields of Art History, Architecture and Islamic Studies, bringing new objects to light, and shedding new light on old objects.

      Summary
      • Abstract: The overriding concern of most of the existing academic literature on the Royal Navy in the twentieth century has been to assess the organisation's performance of its stated duties: the protection of British interests and sovereignty in peace and war. The premise of this thesis is, however, that the navy can also be approached as an institution within which a range of predominantly masculine identities and lifestyles were assembled, promoted and protected. From this perspective, its aim has been to explore the role of material culture in shaping the class-related identities of male naval personnel during the period 1930-1960. In order to achieve this the thesis has examined a representative cross-section of the naval material culture related to personnel of all ranks and ages: from training establishments to uniform, and adult living environments ashore and afloat. It demonstrates that material culture was of crucial significance in defining the notions of class held by servicemen, and that, through the meanings associated with materiality, naval personnel linked themselves to (and were linked with) specific clusters of stereotyped qualities and characteristics. In this respect, material culture did not simply convey a particular vision of class stratification within the navy, but presented these different class groupings and class-related identities as substantially different incarnations of masculinity. The notion of gender as a component and determinant of class identity, and the role of material culture in constructing this nexus, are explored throughout the thesis. Nor does the work view naval material culture as representing solely intra-institutional concerns surrounding class and identity, but instead regards it as both responding and contributing to much wider debates within British society. Indeed, much of the power of naval uniform or interiors to communicate socio-cultural information derived from their close linkage to civilian models of fashion and display. A primary aim of the thesis has been to establish and analyse these connections (and equally to determine those areas in which they seem to have been weak or non-existent). Both within and outside the navy, these years were also ones of gradual change with regard to notions of class. The thesis charts the nature of these developments, and the role of material culture in precipitating, substantiating or resisting them within the institution. More generally, the essay hopes to bring the realm of material culture centre stage within an enquiry into the formation of historical identities. In so doing it will address a situation in which the rich visual and material dimensions of class have often been omitted from historical analysis, or have been only fleetingly assessed.

      The Archaeology of Childhood. Children Gender and Material Culture

      Published

      ISBN
      • 0759103321
      Summary
      • The study of children and childhood in historical and prehistoric life is an overlooked area of study that Jane Baxter addresses in this brief book. Her timely contribution stresses the importance of studying children as active participants in past cultures, instead of regarding them mainly for their effect on adult life. Using the critical concepts of gender and socialization, she develops new theoretical and methodological approaches for the archaeological study of this large but invisible population. Baxter presents examples from the analysis of toys, miniatures, and other objects traditionally associated with children, from the gendered distribution of activity space, from the remains of children-as-apprentices, and from mortuary evidence. Baxter's work will aid archaeologists bring a more nuanced understanding of children's role in the historical and archaeological record.
      • Review: In this elegant book, Jane Baxter provides a manifesto for why archaeologists should care about children, and develops archaeological methodologies for studying childhood and children on their own terms. Drawing on developmental psychology, cultural anthropology, biology, and gender theory, Baxter constructs a general framework for understanding the socialization process, focusing on the various mechanisms through which cultural knowledge is transmitted and transformed. To these disciplinary perspectives, Baxter adds an interest in material culture and the patterned use and construction of space and place by children, to provide tools by which archaeologists can identify and examine this important and long-neglected segment of all human societies. This result is a work that should be read by all archaeologists and former children interested in understanding cultural transmission and social structures and processes. -- Carla M. Sinopoli, Curator of Asian Archaeology, Museum of Anthropology, University of Michigan Baxter has written a concise and accessible introduction to the young field of archaeological research into childhood. Every archaeologist who has ever known or been a child should be able to find something worthwhile in this book, which contains both anthropologically important questions concerning childhood and a range of approaches by which those questions can be addressed via the archaeological record. -- Robert W. Park, University of Waterloo This is a wide-ranging and useful survey of the material available for those who are interested in the archaeology of childhood, which leaves no excuses for future excavators to ignore the presence of large numbers of children on their sites. It summarizes various approaches to studying the material on children, and points out future directions for such studies. Its efficiency and compactness make it an essential addition to any archaeological library, institutional or persoanl. Journal Of Field Archaeology This recent addition to the Series is elegantly written in an accessbile style, and refreshingly, it displays none of the sentimentality that is sometimes associated with texts about children...An engrossing read. Baxter is to be congratulated for this well-researched and thought-provoking book. South African Archaeological Bulletin The Archaeology of Childhood: Children, Gender, and Material Culture is a valuable addition to the growing corpus of literature that explores ways for archaeologists to incorporate past children and childhood into their research. Baxter provides a particularly comprehensive and up-to-date review of the existing archaeological and cultural research. -- Kathryn Kamp, Grinnell College
