"This paper examines constructions of gender pertinent to the British analysis of Russia, as emerges through major periodicals across the late nineteenth century. It begins by laying out the methodology and core thematic questions to be undertaken, then proceeds in summary of some of the core insights of recent postcolonial historiography. It also suggests ways that certain tropes on race, gender and the imperial culture can apply beyond the traditional parameters of imperial metropole or colonial periphery. My work then proceeds to analysis of the British strategic situation in this era, focusing on ways in which long-term tension with rival imperial powers was crucial to the British perspective and behavior on their own empire. In a final appraisal of the secondary historiography, this work examines major structures of the Victorian periodicals, their significance at their time, their importance in historical analysis, and the ways these connected to British gender and the British empire. Turning to primary sources, I look for indications of gender signifiers employed by British authors to frame specific perceptions and evaluations of Russian society. My work proceeds first through examination of a group of dissimilar articles sharing a general hostile stance towards Russia, then a collection that argues for Russia as a more friendly and beneficial polity. Subsequently I look at a gender dynamic in several ostensibly neutral articles, those that avoid a direct evaluative stance on Russia either way. Finally, by way of conclusion I bring the thread of gendered perceptions of imperial rivals through to the present, arguing for the relevance of studying this process for contemporary politics as well as postcolonial analysis."--Abstract.

How does a Christian render unto Caesar what is Caesar's, and unto God what is God's? This book is the result of the Bingham Colloquium of 2007 that brought scholars from across North America to examine the New Testament's response to the empires of God and Caesar. Two chapters lay the foundation for that response in the Old Testament's concept of empire, and six others address the response to the notion of empire, both human and divine, in the various authors of the New Testament. A final chapter investigates how the church fathers regarded the matter. The essays display various methods and positions; together, however, they offer a representative sample of the current state of study of the notion of empire in the New Testament.

First encounters between the east and the west in the Mediterranean are important instances in history. They are the source of constructing a myth and history that has depended much on literary and cultural productions. This book investigates this history by dwelling on issues of white female captives in Moorish Thralldom and their representation in western cinema to realize the way the stories of those Christian female captives have been used and abused by their nations to achieve imperialist ambitions. This book dwells on the ambivalent attitudes of those female captives towards their empires and problematizes the “strength” and “unity” of the colonial discourse. Cinema of the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries reflects the paradigm that western directors and producers followed. It is the construction of visual narratives they inherited from orientalism, as well as the creation of visual tropes that are often created through polarities of good and bad, and through the process of intertexuality. Western cinema encapsulates the “other” in the stereotypical framework of cinematic production. It fixes the “other” with its misrepresentation and, with the repetition of those stereotypes, it contributes to widening the gap between the two entities – the west as opposed to the east. This book analyzes all those visual texts: movies as a battleground for opposing ideologies; as a space where we are pushed far away from the precinct of literature into the arena of politics and ideology; an arena where political, ideological and cultural struggles are enmeshed to vanquish the weak “other”. Omar Moumni reads all those western cinematic productions as colonial texts. He reads them from the perspective and the position of the Moorish “other” whose voice has been drawn to represent a history. By rereading this visual culture, he deconstructs the stereotypes, the tropes and the constructed reality about the “other”, and gives the “other” his due and his voice, uttered in the other’s disruptive resistance.

Three Examples of the "Other Truth:"In 1967, Israel occupied and colonized the last remaining land on which the Palestinians lived. This included the land on which the Palestinians had been the overwhelming majority population for the last 2,000 years.Jews engaged in terrorism against the British just prior to the establishment of the Jewish state. The Jews called themselves "freedom fighters", and the British called them terrorists. The Jews were as misguided in 1946 and 1947 as the Palestinian militants are today.U.S. foreign policy supports the Israeli viewpoint without question even though Israel has repeatedly reneged on implementing signed peace agreements.Do you support U.S. foreign policy because, "there must be a reason for it?" Well, there is, but it may not be for the reasons you think or trust are fair.

In the second half of the eighteenth century, the Russian Empire-already the largest on earth-expanded its dominion onto the ocean. Through a series of government-sponsored voyages of discovery and the establishment of a private fur trade, Russians crossed and re-crossed the Bering Strait and the North Pacific Ocean, establishing colonies in Kamchatka and Alaska and exporting marine mammal furs to Europe and China. In the process they radically transformed the North Pacific, causing environmental catastrophe. In one of the most hotly-contested imperial arenas of the day, the Russian empire organized a host of Siberian and Alaskan native peoples to rapaciously hunt for fur seals, sea otters, and other fur-bearing animals. The animals declined precipitously, and Steller's sea cow went extinct. This destruction captured the attention of natural historians who for the first time began to recognize the threat of species extinction. These experts drew upon Enlightenment and Romantic-era ideas about nature and imperialism but their ideas were refracted through Russian scientific culture and influenced by the region's unique ecology. Cosmopolitan scientific networks ensured the spread of their ideas throughout Europe. Heeding the advice of these scientific experts, Russian colonial governors began long-term management of marine mammal stocks and instituted some of the colonial world's most forward-thinking conservationist policies. Highlighting the importance of the North Pacific in Russian imperial and global environmental history, Empire of Extinction focuses on the development of ideas about the natural world in a crucial location far from what has been considered the center of progressive environmental attitudes.

This provocative and often controversial volume examines concepts of ethnicity, citizenship and nationhood, to determine what constituted cultural identity in the Roman Empire. The contributors draw together the most recent research and use diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives from archaeology, classical studies and ancient history to challenge our basic assumptions of Romanization and how parts of Europe became incorporated into a Roman culture. Cultural Identity in the Roman Empire breaks new ground, arguing that the idea of a unified and easily defined Roman culture is over-simplistic, and offering alternative theories and models. This well-documented and timely book presents cultural identity throughout the Roman empire as a complex and diverse issue, far removed from the previous notion of a dichotomy between the Roman invaders and the Barbarian conquered.

The American Empire has grown too fast, and the fault lines at home are stressed to the breaking point. The war of words between Right and Left has collapsed into a shooting war, though most people just want to be left alone. The battle rages between the high-technology weapons on one side, and militia foot-soldiers on the other, devastating the cities, and overrunning the countryside. But the vast majority, who only want the killing to stop and the nation to return to more peaceful days, have technology, weapons and strategic geniuses of their own. When the American dream shatters into violence, who can hold the people and the government together? And which side will you be on? Orson Scott Card is a master storyteller, who has earned millions of fans and reams of praise for his previous science fiction and fantasy novels. Now he steps a little closer to the present day with this chilling look at a near future scenario of a new American Civil War.

From its beginnings, science fiction has experimented with imperialistic scenarios of alien invasion, extraterrestrial exploitation, xenophobia, and colonial conquest. In Science Fiction and Empire, Patricia Kerslake brings contemporary thinking about postcolonialism and imperialism to bear on a variety of classic sci-fi novels and films, including The War of the Worlds, Stanislaw Lem’s Solaris, and Star Wars. The first book to identify the consequences of empire in science fiction, Kerslake’s study is a compelling investigation of the political ramifications of how we imagine our future. “Science Fiction and Empire is thought-provoking and insightful, . . . the kind of large-scale postcolonial work that science fiction has needed for quite some time.”—Science Fiction Studies

This sourcebook gathers into a single collection the writings that illuminate one of the most fundamental periods in the history of Christian Europe. Beginning from the Great Persecution of Diocletian and the conversion of Constantine the first Christian Roman emperor, the volume explores Christianity's rise as the dominant religion of the Later Roman empire and how the Church survived the decline and fall of Roman power in the west and converted the Germanic tribes who swept into the western empire. These years of crisis and transformation inspired generations of great writers, among them Eusebius of Caesarea, Ammianus Marcellinus, Julian 'the Apostate', Ambrose of Milan, John Chrysostom, Jerome and Augustine of Hippo. They were also years which saw Christianity face huge challenges on many crucial questions, from the evolution of Christian doctrine and the rise of asceticism to the place of women in the early Church and the emerging relationship between Church and state. All these themes will be made accessible to specialists and general readers alike, and the sourcebook will be invaluable for students and teachers of courses in history and church history, the world of late antiquity, and religious studies.

This timely and critical look at the teaching of English shows how language is used to create hierarchies of cultural privilege in public schools across the United States. Drawing on the work of four ESL teachers who pursued anti-racist pedagogical practices during their first year of teaching, the author provides a compelling account of how new teachers might gain agency for culturally responsive teaching in spite of school cultures that often discourage such approaches. She combines current research and original analyses to shed light on real classroom situations faced by teachers of linguistically diverse populations. This book will help pre- and inservice teachers to think about such challenges as differential achievement between language learners and “native-speakers”; hierarchies of languages and language varieties; the difference between an accent identity and an incorrect pronunciation; and the use of students’ first languages in English classes. An important resource for classroom teaching, educational policy, school leadership, and teacher preparation, this volume includes reflection questions at the end of each chapter. “This is an important and timely book. How to best educate new Americans, including the best language policies, is a matter of controversy and dissent. Race, Empire, and English Language Teaching is must reading for teachers and school administrators, policymakers, and concerned citizens who are interested in a deeper understanding of how anti-racist pedagogical practices and culturally responsive teaching can work to engage all students moving forward.” —Marcelo M. Suárez-Orozco, dean and distinguished professor of education, UCLA Graduate School of Education & Information Studies, co-author of Learning a New Land “Foregrounding teachers’ voices, Motha lucidly conceptualizes ideological facets of teaching English—monolingualism, native speakerism, and standard language—as racialized practices that undergird colonial power and contradict pluricentric understandings of English. Her analysis is intellectually robust, morally engaging, and discursively accessible. This is a must-read for all ESL professionals.” —Ryuko Kubota, professor, Department of Language and Literacy Education, The University of British Columbia Suhanthie Motha is assistant professor in the Department of English at the University of Washington, Seattle.
