Description

This subject focuses on the ways in which we read, providing an overview of some of the different strategies of reading, comprehending and engaging with literary texts developed in the twentieth century. The course is organized around specific theoretical paradigms. In each case our task will be, first, to work through the selected reading in order to see how it determines or defines the task of literary interpretation; second, to locate the limits of each particular approach; and finally, to trace the emergence of subsequent theoretical paradigms as responses to the achievements and limitations of what came before. The literary texts and films that accompany the theoretical material will serve as concrete cases that allow us to see theory in action. In general, then, each week we wil This subject focuses on the ways in which we read, providing an overview of some of the different strategies of reading, comprehending and engaging with literary texts developed in the twentieth century.

Heavy Gun Machine Shop, Elswick Works

Description

View inside the Heavy Gun Machine Shop at the Elswick Works, Newcastle upon Tyne, c1900 (TWAM ref. 5484). This image shows 8?, 9.2? and 12? guns being machined. ?Workshop of the World? is a phrase often used to describe Britain?s manufacturing dominance during the Nineteenth Century. It?s also a very apt description for the Elswick Works and Scotswood Works of Vickers Armstrong and its predecessor companies. These great factories, situated in Newcastle along the banks of the River Tyne, employed hundreds of thousands of men and women and built a huge variety of products for customers around the globe. The Elswick Works was established by William George Armstrong (later Lord Armstrong) in 1847 to manufacture hydraulic cranes. From these relatively humble beginnings the company diversified into many fields including shipbuilding, armaments and locomotives. By 1953 the Elswick Works covered 70 acres and extended over a mile along the River Tyne. This set of images, mostly taken from our Vickers Armstrong collection, includes fascinating views of the factories at Elswick and Scotswood, the products they produced and the people that worked there. By preserving these archives we can ensure that their legacy lives on. (Copyright) We're happy for you to share this digital image within the spirit of The Commons.

Description

Name: Thomas Newham Arrested for: not given Arrested at: North Shields Police Station Arrested on: 2 May 1905 Tyne and Wear Archives ref: DX1388-1-71-Thomas Newham The Shields Daily News for 9 May 1905 reports: "At North Shields Police Court to-day, Thomas Newham (48), clerk, 44 Adelaide Street, South Shields, was charged with having obtained, by false pretences, 1 4s, the moneys of Messrs Wawn and Son, fruiterers and potato dealers, South Shields on the 23rd February 1903. Mr T.V. Mabane prosecuted and Mr A. Whitehorn defended. Accused pleaded guilty. Prosecutor said that up to February of 1903 the accused was in his employ as a clerk. He gave him notice but he pleaded to be permitted to remain in his situation. Witness consented, but on the 21st February he discharged him, giving him his wages. Subsequently he ascertained that he had appropriated 24s which he had collected from a customer, and he (witness) had a warrant issued for his arrest. Decective Sergt. Scougal having given evidence as to charging the accused and receiving a confession of guilt, Mr Whitehorn addressed the Bench in mitigation of punishment and suggested that as the prosecutor did not press the charge and the prisoner was deeply sorry, the magistrates might deal with the case under the First Offenders Act and bind him over to come up for judgement if called upon. His sister, whose husband had a little property in the town, was prepared to stand bond for him. She offered to pay Mr Wawn the 24s out of her own pocket shortly after the warrant was issued, but the prosecutor said it was too late, and that the law would have to take its course. The magistrates bound the accused over in 5 and a surety of 5 to come up for judgement if called upon."

St Nicholas Cathedral, 1958

Description

View of St NIcholas Cathedral from the Black Gate, Newcastle upon Tyne, April 1958 (TWAM ref. DT,.TUR/4/976/3). Tyne & Wear Archives presents a series of images taken by the Newcastle-based photographers Turners Ltd. The firm had an excellent reputation and was regularly commissioned by local businesses to take photographs of their products and their premises. Turners also sometimes took aerial and street views on their own account and many of those images have survived, giving us a fascinating glimpse of life in the North East of England in the second half of the Twentieth Century.

'Thorshavn' afloat after launch

Description

View of the tanker ?Thorshavn? afloat on the River Wear after launch by J.L. Thompson & Sons, 21 November 1949 (TWAM ref. DS.JLT/4/PH/1/661/3/3). This set celebrates the achievements of the famous Sunderland shipbuilding firm Joseph L. Thompson & Sons. The company?s origins date back to 1846 when the firm was known as Robert Thompson & Sons. Robert Thompson senior died in 1860, leaving his second son Joseph Lowes Thompson in control. In 1870 the shipyard completed its last wooden vessel and was then adapted for iron shipbuilding. By 1880 the firm had expanded its operations over much of North Sands and in 1884 completed the construction of Manor Quay, which served as fitting out and repair facilities. For many years in the late nineteenth century the yard was the most productive in Sunderland and in 1894 had the fourth largest output of any shipyard in the world. The Depression affected the firm severely in the early 1930s and no vessels were launched from 1931 to 1934. However, during those years the company developed a hull design giving greater efficiency and economy in service. During the Second World War the prototype developed by Joseph L. Thompson & Sons proved so popular that it was used by the US Government as the basis of over 2,700 Liberty ships built at American shipyards between 1942 and 1945. After the War the North Sands shipyard went on to build many fine cargo ships, oil tankers and bulk carriers. Sadly the shipyard closed in 1979, although it briefly reopened in 1986 to construct the crane barge ITM Challenger.

?What?s happened to the man I married??

Description

A neglected wife despairs as her husband stares at the television screen (TWAM ref. DT.TUR/2/28785). You can read a blog relating to these images here www.twmuseums.org.uk/engage/blog/turners-saved-my-marriage/. Tyne & Wear Archives is very fortunate to hold the photographic negatives of the firm Turners (Photography) Ltd. The collection contains many remarkable images commissioned by local firms during the second half of the Twentieth Century. The Turners collection also includes images taken by the firm to promote their own business and this set shows a short series of images taken in March 1962 to promote the sale of cameras in their shops. They tell the story of a bored husband, his mind numbed by television, and his worried wife. Looking for inspiration, the man passes by a Turners shop window and discovers the wonder of photography. At once his happiness returns and matrimonial harmony is restored. We?ve no record of the captions used by Turners to accompany these images so we?ve used a bit of artistic licence and created our own. Maybe you can suggest alternatives.

TWCMS.2000.3646.4

Description

Postcard, sepia, of the head and shoulders of a young officer of the Royal Flying Corps during the First World War. The badges worn by the solider indicate he was a member of the Kings Own (Royal Lancaster Regiment) and not a Royal Engineer, however there was a BR Raggett who did served with the Royal Engineers so this is unclear. Regional Faces of the First World War. The photograph is from an album relating to the men, women and children from Tyne and Wear who lived, worked or fought during the First World War. Accompanying this photo is the biographical and supporting information that we have about them, but the full story is not always known. Our collections records are not very detailed in some cases. We need your help to fill in the blanks. Do you have any information to add to what is already here? A name? A location? What more can you find out and tell us about their life? If you have some extra information about this photograph, please add your comments, information and any links, images or text. Part of the ?Wor Life? project.
