A tale of eighteenth-century invention and competition, commerce and conflict, this is a lively, illustrated, and accurate chronicle of the search to solve? the longitude problem,? the question of how to determine a ship?s position at sea?and one that changed the history of mankind. Ships, Clocks, and Stars brings into focus one of our greatest scientific stories: the search to accurately measure a ship?s position at sea. The incredible, illustrated volume reveals why longitude mattered to seafaring nations, illuminates the various solutions that were proposed and tested, and explores the invention that revolutionized human history and the man behind it, John Harrison. Here, too, are the voyages of Captain Cook that put these revolutionary navigational methods to the test. Filled with astronomers, inventors, politicians, seamen, and satirists, Ships, Clocks, and Starsexplores the scientific, political, and commercial battles of the age, as well as the sailors, ships, and voyages that made it legend?from Matthew Flinders and George Vancouver to the voyages of theBounty and the Beagle. Featuring more than 150 photographs specially commissioned from Britain?s National Maritime Museum, this evocative, detailed, and thoroughly fascinating history brings this age of exploration and enlightenment vividly to life.
The academy may claim to seek and value diversity in its professoriate, but reports from faculty of color around the country make clear that departments and administrators discriminate in ways that range from unintentional to malignant. Stories abound of scholars-despite impressive records of publication, excellent teaching evaluations, and exemplary service to their universities-struggling on the tenure track. These stories, however, are rarely shared for public consumption. Written/Unwritten reveals that faculty of color often face two sets of rules when applying for reappointment, tenure, and promotion: those made explicit in handbooks and faculty orientations or determined by union contracts and those that operate beneath the surface. It is this second, unwritten set of rules that disproportionally affects faculty who are hired to diversify academic departments and then expected to meet ever-shifting requirements set by tenured colleagues and administrators. Patricia A. Matthew and her contributors reveal how these implicit processes undermine the quality of research and teaching in American colleges and universities. They also show what is possible when universities persist in their efforts to create a diverse and more equitable professorate. These narratives hold the academy accountable while providing a pragmatic view about how it might improve itself and how that improvement can extend to academic culture at large. The contributors and interviewees are Ariana E. Alexander, Marlon M. Bailey, Houston A. Baker Jr, Dionne Bensonsmith, Leslie Bow, Angie Chabram, Andreana Clay, Jane Chin Davidson, April L. Few-Demo, Eric Anthony Grollman, Carmen V. Harris, Rashida L. Harrison, Ayanna Jackson-Fowler, Roshanak Kheshti, Patricia A. Matthew, Fred Piercy, Deepa S. Reddy, Lisa Sanchez Gonzalez, Wilson Santos, Sarita Echavez See, Andrew J. Stremmel, Cheryl A. Wall, E. Frances White, Jennifer D. Williams, and Doctoral Candidate X.
Racism in the 21st Century
The scion of a political dynasty ushers in the era of big government Politics was in Benjamin Harrison's blood. His great-grandfather signed the Declaration and his grandfather, William Henry Harrison, was the ninth president of the United States. Harrison, a leading Indiana lawyer, became a Republican Party champion, even taking a leave from the Civil War to campaign for Lincoln. After a scandal-free term in the Senate-no small feat in the Gilded Age-the Republicans chose Harrison as their presidential candidate in 1888. Despite losing the popular vote, he trounced the incumbent, Grover Cleveland, in the electoral college. In contrast to standard histories, which dismiss Harrison's presidency as corrupt and inactive, Charles W. Calhoun sweeps away the stereotypes of the age to reveal...
In the post-Civil Rights era, there is a temptation to assume that racism is no longer the pressing social concern in the United States that it once was. The contributors show that racism has not fallen from the forefront of American society, but is manifest in a different way. According to the authors in this volume, in 21st century, skin color has come to replace race as an important cause of discrimination. This is evidenced in the increasing usage of the term “people of color” to encompass people of a variety of racial and ethnic backgrounds. The editor has compiled a diverse group of contributors to examine racism from an interdisciplinary perspective. Contributions range from the science of racism, from its perceived biological basis at the end of the 19th century, to sociological...
With the end of the year fast approaching, I thought I'd take a look back at the shows I've seen in 2016. Plays. It has been a good year for plays for me. I normally focus almost exclusively on musicals and, while I still saw more of them than any other type of show, I wanted to make more of an effort to see straight plays this year, and I actually hit 15.... (I was less keen on The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time than my friend Stacey, who came with me, was, but despite being distracted by my dislike of the staging I could recognise the excellence of the acting. ) Highlights for me – Gemma Arterton leading an incredibly good cast in the utterly wonderful Nell Gwynn (I also got to see a childhood crush of mine, Michelle Dotrice, who was wonderful in a supporting role. ) Possibly the best performance I’ve seen of Romeo and Juliet , with Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh directing Lily James and Richard Madden at the Garrick. While the central couple were good, the undoubted stars here were Derek Jacobi – whose ‘stunt casting’ as Mercutio worked perfectly – and Meera Syal, who was a fabulous nurse. ) Other outstanding actors I saw included Pixie Lott in Breakfast at Tiffany’s , Ralph Fiennes in The Master Builder (easier to understand than I’d expected/feared from Ibsen), Dominic Cooper as a smouldering, roguish title character in The... Perhaps my absolute favourite single performance of the year, though, was former Friends star Matthew Perry in The End Of Longing. While the play of the year for me has to be Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – I think that in terms of capturing the atmosphere I wanted from a new HP story, and producing it on the West End stage, it was an incredible achievement, and it was... I persuaded Debbie to come see this comedy, about a comedy club’s weekend just after Benny Hill passes away, mainly because I got cheap front row tickets in a flash sale. Neither of us had especially high hopes (despite a strong cast including Ralf Little and Steve Pemberton) but it was a completely hilarious evening which I would love to see again at some point. Dance, on the other hand, went less well this year. I saw 8 shows – which I think is perhaps the least I’ve seen since coming down here – but only a couple stand out as especially good. Seeing Natalia Osipova and Sergei Polunin dance together at Sadler’s Wells was definitely a thrill (although I think I possibly found Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui’s Qutb , where Jason Kittelberger and James O’Hara danced with Natalia, a better piece... ) I think the best show of the year, though, has to be The Merchants of Bollywood , featuring stunning costume, brilliant dancers, and outstanding choreography by Vaibhavi Merchant and Shruti Merchant. I need to take better notes on circus stuff as me and Debbie go quite a lot (6 times this year) and all I’ve got is various combinations of “Good”, “Yay. ” (Oh, and a “not up to their usual standards” for 7 Fingers, but to be fair 7 Fingers’ usual standards are SKY-high so their show was still worth seeing. From what I remember, it was more dance than usual, though. ) So while it's been a good year, trying to figure out from my fairly terrible notes which of several shows I enjoyed most is something of a struggle. That said, I really liked Closer , Cirque Eloise’s iD , and Zippos present Cirque Berserk. I do remember, thankfully, that the two we saw as part of Circusfest 2016 at the Roundhouse – Race Horse Company: Super Sunday and Barely Methodical Troupe: Kin – were especially good and Super Sunday, in particular, featured a LOT of... These are always the main attraction for me when it comes to shows, and this year was no exception. While my very favourites were things I'd seen before, I also saw a bunch of new/new-to-me shows and enjoyed a lot of them.
