Memory and Mythology: Modern War and the Construction of Historical Memory , 1775 - 2000

Author: 

Starostina, Natalia; Editor

Credentials: 

Ph.D, D/History, Young Harris College

The volume provides a rare opportunity to launch a dialogue among historians working on the theme by examining different societies and chronological periods. It is often a case that the studies of the construction of memory of wars are geographically bound to specific countries. Such a focus narrows a historical inquiry to the experience of a single nation or a region and hinders a dialogue among historians.

Author: 

Morris, Ruth

Credentials: 

D/English, Aberdeen University, Scotland

This work has grown out of a previous study entitled Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Jewish Question: A Victorian English Novelist and the Worlds of Anglo-Jewry, Zionism and Judaism, 1859-1913, which focused solely upon Braddon’s novels and used them as a lens through which the changes in the Anglo-Jewish community throughout her lifetime could be charted within her work.

Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Jewish Question: A Victorian English Novelist and the Worlds of Anglo-Jewry, Zionism and Judaism, 1859 - 1913

Author: 

Morris, Ruth

Credentials: 

D/English Aberdeen University; University of York MA

Mary Elizabeth Braddon and the Jewish Question investigates the representation of Jewish characters in 70 of the prolific and wildly popular Mrs Braddon's novels from the mid 19th c to the eve of World War One. This study considers how Braddon changes her descriptions across this timeframe and argues that these changes are reflective of the changing social and economic status of the Anglo-Jewish population.
