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. Quinn (Western), and Laurence Thomas (Syracuse).

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

In a series of studies, David Hayton offers a comprehensive account of the government of Ireland during the period of transformation from 'New English' colonialism to Anglo-Irish 'patriotism', providing a chronological survey of the development of English policy towards Ireland and an account of the changing political structure of Ireland; particular attention is paid to the emergence of an English-style party system under Queen Anne. The Anglo-Irish dimension is also explored, through crises of high politics, and through an examination of the role played by Irish issues at Westminster. In his introduction, Professor Hayton provides historical perspective, and establishes Irish political developments firmly in their British context. Professor D.W. Hayton is Reader in Modern History at Queen's University, Belfast.

Ulster Historical Foundation Politics and Political Culture in Britain and Ireland, 1750-1850: Essays in Tribute to Peter Jupp Ulster Historical Foundation Politics and Political Culture in Britain and Ireland, 1750-1850: Essays in Tribute to Peter Jupp

Before his untimely death in the summer of 2006, Peter Jupp was widely recognised as one of the key influences in the recovery of British and Irish political history in the 'long' 18th century. His unrivalled knowledge of collections in public and private archives had made him well-nigh indispensable to several generations of historians. This volume had initially been conceived to mark Peter's retirement after 40 years' service to Queen's University Belfast. With his sudden passing, it became all the more important to acknowledge appropriately the true extent and depth of Peter's contribution -- as lecturer, researcher, author and mentor. These essays are now published to celebrate that achievement. They focus on the themes in which he himself was interested: elections and parliament; reaction and reform; political biography; the history of print and ideas; crowds and popular movements. Moreover, they relate to a period, the 18th and first half of the 19th centuries and the changing nature of relations between Ireland and Great Britain, so crucial to an understanding of contemporary affairs, all of which has been so handsomely illuminated by Peter's published work. The contributors have come together as former students, colleagues and friends -- often all three -- to pay tribute to his enthusiasm for this shared interest and to acknowledge the remarkable impression Peter Jupp has left on the study and wider understanding of British and Irish history. The contributors to the collection of essays include: Suzanne Kingon, Martin McElroy, Jacqueline Hill, Allan Blackstock, Nini Rodgers, A.P.W. Malcomson, Trevor Parkhill, Richard Gaunt, Michael Hopkinson, Petri Mirala, Frank O'Gorman, Eoin Magennis, Patrick McNally, and Mary O'Dowd. Short forewards are provided by Marianne Elliott and David Hayton.

Pickwick Publications Robert N. Faris - Liberating Mission in Mozambique: Faith and Revolution in the Life of Eduardo Mondlane Pickwick Publications Robert N. Faris - Liberating Mission in Mozambique: Faith and Revolution in the Life of Eduardo Mondlane

Few people have any extensive knowledge of the life and witness of the Protestant churches in the former Portuguese colonies of southern Africa. Yet these communities of faith played a significant role in the liberation struggles that led to the independence of both Mozambique and Angola and subsequently to the independence of Zimbabwe and the ending of apartheid in South Africa. In Mozambique, Eduardo Mondlane emerged from the Swiss Mission to become the first president of the Mozambique Liberation Front (FRELIMO). This book examines Mondlane's role in challenging the churches both in Mozambique and globally to support the struggle for independence through a renewed understanding of the missio Dei, God's liberating mission in the world. Mondlane maintained a strong connection with the World Council of Churches and was a key player in bringing about its Programme to Combat Racism after the 1968 Assembly in Uppsala before his assassination in 1969. This connection was to have important implications for the WCC's complex relationship with Mozambique and its Protestant churches following independence. "This book offers a new perspective on Mondlane's life, it renews our understanding of religion and politics in Mozambique, and it demonstrates brilliantly how the world missionary movement evolved, including the World Council of Churches, at the interface between structural constraints and the action of individuals." --Eric Morier-Genoud, lecturer, African history, Queen's University of Belfast, UK "Eduardo Mondlane was a giant within the movement to liberate Portugal's African colonies. Relying on a broad range of primary sources and his own personal experience, both in Mozambique and in the church, Robert Faris reveals the tensions in Mondlane's life, between the struggle for personal freedom and the armed struggle for liberation, between theology and liberation." --Frank J. Luce, associate fellow, Harriet Tubman Institute, York University, Canada "Portuguese-speaking
