Water Over Skin
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

My research is grounded in personal experience of migration and diaspora as a woman of mixed-race descent. Research for my studio practice explores the metaphor of Water Over Skin. My quest for identity is a journey resembling water that flows over lines of demarcation. I see the female body, a recurring theme, inscribed within personal, psychological and physical boundaries involving landscape, domesticity, clothing. Imagery is appropriated from Indian art and mythology, colonial history, family photographs from India and England. The work incorporates text from my own writing and a created language based on Hindustani script. The exegesis embraces an interdisciplinary approach including history, cultural studies and autobiography. Issues of difference both racial and cultural focus the research around key themes of shame, the third space' of hybridity, race and gender. Referring to autobiographical elements, the transformation from a political assimilationist perspective is explored, deeply shaped by personal shame. Grounded in postmodernism and postcolonialism the exegesis draws on wide ranging theoretical perspectives to provide a framework and context for my studio practice.

A not-so-merry widow... The widowed Marchioness of Folkestone is notorious for her parties, her art collection, and her utter disregard for the rules. But Ellie Claiborne knows her destruction is near. The new marquess is her first lover - the man whose sculpted body and sardonic grin haunt her every time she picks up her paintbrush. If he ever returns to claim his inheritance, her heart won't survive seeing him again. A man determined to destroy her... Nicholas Claiborne hasn't stepped foot in England since watching Ellie marry his cousin. He has no use for the gorgeous, heartless girl who betrayed him or the title she abandoned him for. But when his business in India turns deadly, Nick must return to London to uncover a murderer - and take revenge on the woman he couldn't force himself to forget. A love they can't escape... Nick hates Ellie's transformation from sweet debutante to jaded seductress. Ellie despises him for leaving her behind. Still, the sparks between them reignite the passion that should have been their destiny. As their demands of each other turn darker and a potential killer closes in, they must decide whether to guard the fragile remnants of their hearts - or find a way to fall in love all over again. 1.

Richard England
115,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The architecture of Richard England occupies a particular niche in the broader history of Mediterranean Modernism. His work blends traditional Maltese typologies with the memories of centuries of architecture from the vernacular through to the classical, and into the strange, dream-like, painterly and literary worlds of De Chirico and Calvino. England s influences range through music, art and literature: all the arts feed into a body of work which embraces drawing, sculpture and poetry as well as architecture and design. England s architectural works include the church at Manikata, which was a pioneering building in the reassessment of Modernist ideas, in the relationship of architecture to liturgy and in the embracing of local archetypes into a sculptural modern architecture. Following the international acclaim given to Manikata, England became the most influential architect on the island, completing dozens of hotels, shops and private houses. His recent work has seen his office playing a pivotal role in the transformation of Malta s capital city, Valletta, through a series of major interventions into the historic fabric including a new national bank, the St James Centre for Creativity and the master plan for the entrance to the city. This is the first major monograph to embrace all England s interventions into the fabric of Valletta and covers the whole of his remarkably prolific career into the beginning of the twenty-first century.

The York Grand Lodge
38,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This new book by award winning Masonic author Dr David Harrison tells the story of the staunchly independent Grand Lodge of All England at York and its rise and fall during the eighteenth century; looking at its leaders, its ritual and its influence on modern Freemasonry. The book also puts forward new evidence that reveals that the York Grand Lodge may have survived longer than originally thought, and how it may have influenced that other northern rebellious body of Freemasons - The Wigan Grand Lodge. Any one that enjoyed Harrison's previous works The Transformation of Freemasonry and especially The Liverpool Masonic Rebellion and the Wigan Grand Lodge will certainly enjoy this new book, which aims to enlighten readers in respect to the more independent styles of eighteenth century Freemasonry.

Pagan and Christian
28,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The conversion to Christianity was a key cultural process that saw the transformation of Europe from classical to medieval world. The growth of the Church has been closely linked with the development of other key institutions, such as the state. It has also been highlighted as a factor in changing attitudes to issues such as the body, time and landscapes. While the study of conversion in the early medieval world has increasingly become a focus for both historians and archaeologists, there has been a lack of engagement with the methodological and theoretical problems underpinning any attempt to explore the archaeology of belief. This book, illustrated with case studies and examples drawn from a range of sources, including the 'Celtic' west, Anglo-Saxon England, Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, tackles some of these important issues. In particular it explores two under-theorised aspects of conversion: the relationship between archaeology and belief, and an attempt to re-centre the 'pagan' as a key element in the conversion process.

The Subtle Body
7,90 CHF *

In The Subtle Body, Stefanie Syman tells the surprising story of yoga’s transformation from a centuries-old spiritual discipline to a multibillion-dollar American industry. Yoga’s history in America is longer and richer than even its most devoted practitioners realize. It was present in Emerson’s New England, and by the turn of the twentieth century it was fashionable among the leisure class. And yet when Americans first learned about yoga, what they learned was that it was a dangerous, alien practice that would corrupt body and soul. A century later, you can find yoga in gyms, malls, and even hospitals, and the arrival of a yoga studio in a neighborhood is a signal of cosmopolitanism. How did it happen? It did so, Stefanie Syman explains, through a succession of charismatic yoga teachers, who risked charges of charlatanism as they promoted yoga in America, and through generations of yoga students, who were deemed unbalanced or even insane for their efforts. The Subtle Body tells the stories of these people, including Henry David Thoreau, Pierre A. Bernard, Margaret Woodrow Wilson, Christopher Isherwood, Sally Kempton, and Indra Devi. From New England, the book moves to New York City and its new suburbs between the wars, to colonial India, to postwar Los Angeles, to Haight-Ashbury in its heyday, and back to New York City post-9/11. In vivid chapters, it takes in celebrities from Gloria Swanson and George Harrison to Christy Turlington and Madonna. And it offers a fresh view of American society, showing how a seemingly arcane and foreign practice is as deeply rooted here as baseball or ballet. This epic account of yoga’s rise is absorbing and often inspiring—a major contribution to our understanding of our society.
