University College Dublin Press David W. Miller - Queen's Rebels: Ulster Loyalism in Historical Perspective (Classics of Irish History) University College Dublin Press David W. Miller - Queen's Rebels: Ulster Loyalism in Historical Perspective (Classics of Irish History)

"Queen's Rebels" is a seminal book, described as 'the classic discussion of Protestant loyalism' and 'the most original study of Ulster loyalist ideology'. It is an interpretive essay on the history of the Ulster Protestant community from the seventeenth-century plantations to the mid 1970s. A central concern of the essay is the seemingly contradictory pattern of 'conditional loyalty' on the part of twentieth-century Ulster Protestants. The book was written in the mid-1970s during the some the most violent years of 'the Troubles' when the author spent a year in Belfast, and it has been long unavailable. The new introduction by John Bew places "Queen's Rebels" in the context of the literature on the Northern Ireland and brings the story up to date.

University of Rochester Press Performing Gender, Place, and Emotion in Music: Global Perspectives (Eastman/Rochester Studies Ethnomusicology) University of Rochester Press Performing Gender, Place, and Emotion in Music: Global Perspectives (Eastman/Rochester Studies Ethnomusicology)

While ethnomusicologists and anthropologists have long recognized the theoretical connections between gender, place, and emotion in musical performance, these concepts are seldom analyzed together. I>Performing Gender, Place, and Emotion in Music is the first book-length study to examine the interweaving of these three concepts from a cross-cultural perspective. Contributors show how a theoretical focus one dimension implicates the others, creating a nexus of performative engagement. This process is examined across different regions around the globe, through two key questions: How are aesthetic, emotional, and imagined relations between performers and places embodied musically? And in what ways is this performance of emotion gendered across quotidian, ritual, and staged events? Through ethnographic case studies, the volume explores issues of emplacement, embodiment, and emotion in three parts: landscape and emotion; memory and attachment; and nationalism and indigeneity. Part I focuses on emplaced sentiments in Australasia through Vietnamese spirit possession, Balinese dance, and land rights in Aboriginal performance. Part II addresses memories of Aboriginal choral singing, belonging in Bavarian music-making, and gender-performativity in Polish song. Part III evaluates emotion and fandom around a Korean singer in Japan, and Sami interconnectivities in traditional and modern musical practices. Beverley Diamond provides a thought-provoking commentary in the afterword. Contributors: Beverley Diamond, Fiona Magowan, Jonathan McIntosh, Barley Norton, Tina K. Ramnarine, Muriel Swijghuisen Reigersberg, Sara R. Walmsley-Pledl, Louise Wrazen, Christine Yano. Fiona Magowan is Professor of Anthropology at Queen's University, Belfast. Louise Wrazen is Associate Professor of Music at York University.

McGill-Queen's University Press Joanna R. Quinn - Reconciliation(s): Transitional Justice in Postconflict Societies (Studies in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict) McGill-Queen's University Press Joanna R. Quinn - Reconciliation(s): Transitional Justice in Postconflict Societies (Studies in Nationalism and Ethnic Conflict)

The transformation of conflict and post-conflict societies through transitional justice is now recognized as vital to the process of peace-building, with mechanisms such as trials, truth commissions, and apologies seen as essential for effecting societal change. It is widely argued that 'reconciliation' is a key element of this process, yet both scholars and practitioners are unclear as to what the concept is or how the process works. "Reconciliation(s)" considers the definition of the concept of reconciliation itself, focusing on the definitional dialogue that arises from the attempts to situate reconciliation within a theoretical and analytical framework. Contributing authors champion competing definitions, but all agree that it plays an important role in building relationships of trust and cohesion. The essays in this book also consider the nature and utility of reconciliation in a number of contexts, evaluating both its function and efficacy. A comprehensive evaluation of reconciliation as a means of bringing about social healing, "Reconciliation(s)" will be of interest to scholars from a broad range of disciplines. The contributors include Caitlin Donnelly (Queen's Belfast), Stephanus Du Toit (Institute for Justice and Reconciliation), Samar El-Masri (Prince Sultan University, Riyadh), Nicholas Frayling (Dean, Chichester Cathedral), Mark Freeman (International Center for Transitional Justice), Trudy Govier (Lethbridge), Brandon Hamber (Ulster), Joanne Hughes (Queen's Belfast), Anita Isaacs (Haverford), Grainne Kelly (INCORE, University of Ulster), Rosemary Nagy (Nipissing), Veerle Opgenhaffen (International Center for Transitional Justice), Valerie Perry (OSCE Mission to Bosnia and Herzegovina), Joanna R.

Pickwick Publications Martin Spence - Heaven on Earth: Reimagining Time and Eternity in Nineteenth-Century British Evangelicalism Pickwick Publications Martin Spence - Heaven on Earth: Reimagining Time and Eternity in Nineteenth-Century British Evangelicalism

In nineteenth-century Britain, a large number of prominent Anglican and Presbyterian Evangelicals rejected the idea that salvation meant ""going to heaven when you die."" Instead, they proposed that God would establish his kingdom on earth, renewing the creation and reanimating embodied humans to live in a world of science and progress. This book introduces the writings and activities of these women and men, among whom were counted the ardent social reformer Lord Shaftesbury, the highly-respected clergyman Edward Bickersteth, the popular author Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna, and the General Secretary of the Evangelical Alliance, Thomas Rawson Birks. The book shows that the catalyst for such theological revisionism was the end-times doctrine known as ""premillennialism."" While commonly characterized as a gloomy and sectarian belief, the book argues that premillennialism in Victorian Britain was actually an optimistic and often liberalizing creed. It dissolved older Evangelical assumptions about the dissimilarities between time and eternity, body and soul, heaven and earth. The book demonstrates that, far from being eccentric pessimists, premillennialists were actually pioneers of trends in nineteenth-century Christian theology that stressed the importance of the incarnation, prioritized social justice, and even entertained the idea of universal salvation. ""Moving across disciplines, and balancing nuance and precision with cultural breadth, Martin Spence's Heaven on Earth provides a rich and compelling account of evangelical millennial thinking in the crucial period in which it evolved into its modern forms."" --Crawford Gribben, Professor of Early Modern British History, School of History and Anthropology, Queen's University, Belfast, UK ""In this remarkable book, Martin Spence provides a valuable reassessment of the place of millenarian beliefs in nineteenth-century British Evangelicalism, demonstrating how it was that such premillennialists as Lord Shaftesbury could

Oxbow Books Ian Armit - Neolithic Settlement in Ireland and Western Britain Oxbow Books Ian Armit - Neolithic Settlement in Ireland and Western Britain

The past few years have seen an upsurge in the numbers of known Neolithic settlements in Ireland. Many of these sites have been excavated by archaeologists based in field units, but few are well-known to the wider archaeological community. The papers in this volume which were presented at a conference held at Queen's University, Belfast in 2001, provided a forum for a discussion of the new Neolithic material from Ireland in its wider geographical context. Although the bulk of the emerging Irish settlement evidence relates to substantial houses, many of these papers consider wider themes, including issues of contact and communication along the sea routes and coastal margins of north-west Europe, questions of diversity and regional patterns of sedentism and mobility, and variations in regional food production strategies. The volume includes twenty-six papers representing a series of studies ranging geographically from Orkney to the French Atlantic facade. Contents: Introduction ( Ian Armit, Eileen Murphy, Eimear Nelis and Derek Simpson ); French Connections I: Spreading the marmites thinly ( Alison Sheridan ); French Connections II: Of cows and men ( Anne Tresset ); Contemplating some awful(ly interesting) vistas: Importing cattle and red deer into prehistoric Ireland ( Peter Woodman and Margaret McCarthy ); Terminology, time and space: Labels, radiocarbon chronologies and a 'Neolithic' of small worlds ( Patrick Ashmore ); Rooted or routed? Landscapes of Neolithic settlement in Ireland ( Gabriel Cooney ); The early farming settlement of south western England in the Neolithic ( Roger Mercer ); Neolithic settlement in the lowlands of Scotland: A preliminary survey ( Gordon Barclay ); Once upon a time Skara Brae was unique ( David Clarke ); The Drowners: Permanence and transience in the Hebridean Neolithic ( Ian Armit ); Neolithic Northton: A review of the evidence ( Eileen Murphy and Derek Simpson ); Billown and the Neolithic of the Isle of Man ( Timothy Darvill ); The

The Boydell Press Rachel Wilson - Elite Women in Ascendancy Ireland, 1690-1745: Imitation and Innovation (Irish Historical Monographs) The Boydell Press Rachel Wilson - Elite Women in Ascendancy Ireland, 1690-1745: Imitation and Innovation (Irish Historical Monographs)

The late seventeenth and early eighteenth century was a period of great social and political change within Ireland, as the Protestant Ascendancy gained control of the country, aided by the English government and aristocracy, with whom the ruling class in Ireland mixed through marriage and travel. The resulting Anglo-Irish elite, with its distinct transnational identity, differed markedly from the preceding Irish elite, but, at the same time, because of its Irish dimension, was very different also from the contemporary English and Scottish upper classes. Women played key roles in this Anglo-Irish elite, and the nature of the Protestant Ascendancy can only be completely understood by considering women's roles fully. This book provides a thorough examination of the role of women in Ascendancy Ireland. It discusses marriage, family and social life; explores women's roles in economic and political life and in charitable activities; and places Irish elite women of this period in their wider historiographical context. The book is based on extensive original research, including among the papers of aristocratic families in Ireland and Britain, and provides a wealth of detail on elite women's lives in this period. Rachel Wilson completed her doctorate in modern history at Queen's University, Belfast.
