A Little Harmony is All I Need

A Little Harmony Is All I Need is a book of stories, speeches and essays which "I have written over the years." These writings delineate certain aspects of Allen's teaching career, which began in 1970. The book also demonstrates a twin-emotional pull which Allen received from his teaching and his desire to write. Each one of these twin-endeavors gave him boundless joy and made him feel that he was living a purposeful life.

Swahili Beyond the Boundaries

Literature, Language, and Identity

Africa is a marriage of cultures: African and Asian, Islamic and Euro-Christian. Nowhere is this fusion more evident than in the formation of Swahili, Eastern Africa's lingua franca, and its cultures. Swahili Beyond the Boundaries: Literature, Language, and Identity addresses the moving frontiers of Swahili literature under the impetus of new waves of globalization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. These momentous changes have generated much theoretical debate on several literary fronts, as Swahili literature continues to undergo transformation in the mill of human creativity. Swahili literature is a hybrid that is being reconfigured by a conjuncture of global and local forces. As the interweaving of elements of the colonizer and the colonized, this hybrid formation provides a representation of cultural difference that is said to constitute a "third space," blurring existing boundaries and calling into question established identitarian categorizations. This cultural dialectic is clearly evident in the Swahili literary experience as it has evolved in the crucible of the politics of African cultural production. However, Swahili Beyond the Boundaries demonstrates that, from the point of view of Swahili literature, while hybridity evokes endless openness on questions of home and identity, it can simultaneously put closure on specific forms of subjectivity. In the process of this contestation, a new synthesis may be emerging that is poised to subject Swahili literature to new kinds of challenges in the politics of identity, compounded by the dynamics and counterdynamics of post-Cold War globalization.

Swahili Beyond the Boundaries: Literature, Language, and Identity addresses the moving frontiers of Swahili literature under the impetus of new waves of globalization in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries.

Information Technology for the Virtual Museum

Museology and the Semantic Web

This present collection deals with the application of modern information technology, especially semantic web technologies, to the problems of representing cultural content in real and virtual museums. The Semantic Web is the attempt to make the World Wide Web's enormous mass of information more accessible to humans by using forms of representation which are semantically transparent and therefore 'understandable' to machines assisting human users when they access the web. The fascinating perspectives for museology which result from the new semantic techniques are dealt with in the present book.

Modernism, Media, and Propaganda

British Narrative from 1900 to 1945

Though often defined as having opposite aims, means, and effects, modernism and modern propaganda developed at the same time and influenced each other in surprising ways. The professional propagandist emerged as one kind of information specialist, the modernist writer as another. Britain was particularly important to this double history. By secretly hiring well-known writers and intellectuals to write for the government and by exploiting their control of new global information systems, the British in World War I invented a new template for the manipulation of information that remains with us to this day. Making a persuasive case for the importance of understanding modernism in the context of the history of modern propaganda, Modernism, Media, and Propaganda also helps explain the origins of today's highly propagandized world. Modernism, Media, and Propaganda integrates new archival research with fresh interpretations of British fiction and film to provide a comprehensive cultural history of the relationship between modernism and propaganda in Britain during the first half of the twentieth century. From works by Joseph Conrad to propaganda films by Alfred Hitchcock and Orson Welles, Mark Wollaeger traces the transition from literary to cinematic propaganda while offering compelling close readings of major fiction by Virginia Woolf, Ford Madox Ford, and James Joyce.

With respect to style and narrative technique, the three books are
indistinguishable. ... propagandize even as he wrote propaganda grounded in
impressionist technique, Ford betrays a deeper connection between modernism
and propaganda.

The Cambridge Companion to English Literature, 1830–1914

The nineteenth century witnessed unprecedented expansion in the reading public and an explosive growth in the number of books and newspapers produced to meet its demands. These specially commissioned essays examine not only the full range and variety of texts that entertained and informed the Victorians, but also the boundaries of Victorian literature: the links and overlap with Romanticism in the 1830s, and the roots of modernism in the years leading up to the First World War. The Companion demonstrates how science, medicine and theology influenced creative writing and emphasizes the importance of the visual in painting, book illustration and in technological innovations from the kaleidoscope to the cinema. Essays also chart the complex and fruitful interchanges with writers in America, Europe and the Empire, highlighting the geographical expansion of literature in English. This Companion brings together the most important aspects of this prolific and popular period of English literature.

My starting point is the contested genres, media and spaces of popular culture in
the 18205 and 18305. It was in these post— French Revolutionary decades that
the split between popular and high culture became a topic of public debate, and ...
