Commemoration: Visual texts Commemoration: Visual texts

Description

This free course, Commemoration: Visual texts, explores the commemoration of war through treating two war memorials the Sandham Memorial Chapel and the Royal Artillery Memorial as 'visual texts'. By helping you to respond to visual cues the course aims to develop your understanding of these memorials, not only as memorials, but as artefacts or 'made objects'. It does this through consideration of such factors as the location of the monument; its function and purpose; its symbolism or realism; use of materials; and overall form.

Visit of the Channel Fleet to Sunderland, 1895

Description

Laying a memorial stone on the South Pier, Sunderland to commemorate the visit of the Channel Fleet, 12 September 1895 (TWAM ref. 3768/8). This set of images celebrates the 300th Anniversary of the establishment of the Port of Sunderland. The port authority was constituted in 1717 by Act of Parliament, which appointed the River Wear Commissioners to manage and improve the harbour and river. Since then the port has changed beyond recognition with the construction of piers, docks and quays and the dredging of the River Wear to make it wider and deeper. These developments were vital to the coal trade on which the region?s prosperity depended. The improvement of the river was also essential to the success of shipbuilding in Sunderland as well as allied industries such as marine engineering and ship repairing. These images are a reflection of Sunderland?s proud industrial history. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share these digital images within the spirit of The Commons.

Eldon Square War Memorial on St George's Day

Description

General view of Eldon Square on St George's Day, 23 April 1925 (TWAM ref. DF.GRA/1/2). These images belong to a series of albums documenting John Grantham?s service to the City of Newcastle upon Tyne as its Sheriff 1924-1925 and its Lord Mayor 1936-1937. John Grantham was born in Blyth in 1877 and became a cinema proprietor in Newcastle. He was elected to the City Council in 1912 and became an alderman in 1932. The albums give us an interesting insight into the duties of Lord Mayor and Sheriff as well as a fascinating picture of the times. 2016 is the 800th anniversary of the creation of Newcastle's Mayoralty and Burgesses.

Shipyard of William Doxford & Sons Ltd, Sunderland

Description

This is a Photograph of King George V leaving Doxfords shipyard, Pallion, 15 June 1917. Reference: DS.DOX/6/14/1/3 On 22 November Prince William will be visiting Sunderland and South Tyneside to take part in a number of youth development events. During the visit he will also officially open Haven Point, the new leisure centre in South Shields. To celebrate this Tyne & Wear Archives has produced a short flickr set remembering past royal visits to the region?s shipyards. Most of the visits featured here took place during difficult times and they gave a real boost to public spirits in the face of two World Wars. A short blog relating to these images can be read here . These images are part of the Tyne & Wear Archives Shipyard Collection. In July 2013 the outstanding historical significance of the Collection was recognised by UNESCO through its inscription to the UK Memory of the World Register.

"Lenin with comrades at a May Day rally in Red Square, May 1919"

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: This political demonstration takes place near the Kremlin and celebrates the IIIrd Communist International. One reads the name of the countries represented at the Communist International on the banners, as well as the slogan "Workers of the world, unite!". The title of this picture was written on the back of the document (in Russian). Another photo of the same event can be found in Red Star over Russia (ref. below), with this description: "Lenin (seen standing on the left of the bottom step) with comrades at a May Day rally in Red Square, Moscow, 1919. Marx's First International and the IIIrd International are graphically celebrated in the festivities. There is, however, no representation of the IInd International, whose leaders Lenin mercilessly lambasted on another gramophone record: "They betrayed the workers, prolonged the slaughter, became enemies of socialism, and went over to the side of the capitalists" (p.85). Unknown photographer. Description: 1 photograph mounted on card. Black and white ; 16.5 x 22.5 cm. Sources and further reading: King, David. 2009.

Coreans to cut tobacco and the persimmons-seller

Description

Collection: Willard Dickerman Straight and Early U.S.-Korea Diplomatic Relations, Cornell University Library Title: Coreans to cut tobacco and the persimmons-seller Date: ca. 1904 Place: Asia: South Korea Type: Postcards/Ephemera Description: Regarding the right side of this particular image, tobacco was introduced around 1618 (Kwanghaegun 10-yon) to Korea, probably from Japan or by merchants who traded to Beijing. Clearly the main objective of the photographer was to capture the processing of the tobacco selling here, as evidenced by the onlooking and curious crowd on the left. The seller of persimmon pictured on the left plies an old trade. The persimmon is native in Asia and very popular in Korea. In autumn persimmons are seen everywhere in the countryside. It is one of the essential three-colored fruits that are used for the ceremony to commemorate ancestors. Dried persimmons are used to make a persimmon punch ('sujonggwa') which is a traditional dessert for Lunar New Year. Inscription/Marks: Image imprinted with legend 'Coreans to cut tobacco and the persimmons-seller.' Identifier: 1260.74.10.06 Persistent URI: hdl.handle.net/1813.001/5xrm There are no known U.S. copyright restrictions on this image. The digital file is owned by the Cornell University Library which is making it freely available with the request that, when possible, the Library be credited as its source. We had some help with the geocoding from Web Services by Yahoo!

Form and uses of language

Description

In this free course we will consider how language can be used in different ways for different purposes. To do this we will use the theme of memorial and commemoration. In the first section we briefly discuss the life of the poet Siegfried Sassoon before examining both his poetry and his prose. Through this we will see how Sassoon conveys meaning in different ways for different audiences using different forms. Following this we discuss more generally how different meanings can be conveyed using prose and poetic language.

Commemoration: Visual texts

Description

This free course explores the commemoration of war through treating two war memorials the Sandham Memorial Chapel and the Royal Artillery Memorial as 'visual texts'. By helping you to respond to visual cues the course aims to develop your understanding of these memorials not only as memorials but as artefacts or 'made objects'. It does this through consideration of such factors as the location of the monument; its function and purpose; its symbolism or realism; use of materials; and overall form.

« Place des victimes de la Révolution» at Petrograd [17th July 1920]

Description

Boris Souvarine Papers - Soviet Russia Photos graduateinstitute.ch/home/research/library/archives/boris... Notes: The « Square of the Victims of the Revolution » designates the Field of Mars, in Saint-Petersburg/Petrograd. After the February Revolution in 1917, this area of the city became a memorial place, where participants killed during the Revolution were buried. This picture probably shows a commemoration, which took place at the opening of the IInd Congress of the IIIrd International (17th July 1920). On this occasion, the delegates of the International came in procession to the Field of Mars, to pay a tribute to the victims. The procession may be carrying a symbolical coffin. Unknown photographer. Description: 1 photograph. Black and white ; 10 x 14 cm. Sources and further reading: Rosmer, Alfred. 1920. Moscou sous Lénine. Extract available online, "XIII: Smolny - Séance solennelle d'ouverture du IIe Congrès": www.marxists.org/francais/rosmer/works/msl/msl2013.htm
