  • Female Fortune: Land, Gender and Authority

    £16.99

    Anne Lister (1791-1840), heiress, scholar, traveler, and estate owner, is known to us through her diaries -- an unusually vivid record of an extraordinary life. She inherited Shibden Hall, Yorkshire, seduced a neighbouring heiress, consolidated their estates (effectively a dynastic lesbian marriage), and developed the coal deposits there, managing them with flair and energy.In her account of this remarkable story, Female Fortune, Jill Liddington analyzes the role of gender in Lister's invasion of what were, at the time, almost exclusively male domains. The book is supported by generous selections from the diaries themselves.The extensive appraisal of Anne Lister's life and the themes drawn from the diaries make Female Fortune required reading for anyone engaged in current feminist analysis. It is an important text for students of women's studies, gender studies. social and cultural history, and lesbian and gay studies.

  • About Canada: Queer Rights

    £14.95
    Questioning whether or not Canada is a "queer utopia," this document reflects on the country's growth of acceptance of the LGQBT lifestyles, speculating if it was truly the goal that queer activists hoped to achieve. Using the origins of the 1970s gay and lesbian liberation movement as a starting point, the history of the struggle for queer rights in Canada is highlighted, creating a clearer understanding of the present day. Covered topics include regional organizing; legal reform; institutional homophobia; children, youth, and education; health; and difference and privilege. Contending that Canada's queer community is as diverse and multicultural as the country itself, this study also emphasizes that they are not easily generalized, arguing that they have not yet achieved equality.

  • Black Lives 1900

    £25.00

    Published to coincide with a major exhibition at the House of Illustration.

    At the 1900 Paris Exposition the pioneering sociologist and activist W. E. B. Du Bois presented an exhibit representing the progress of African Americans since the abolition of slavery. In striking graphic visualisations and photographs he showed the changing status of a newly emancipated people across America and more specifically in Georgia, the state with the largest black population. The hand-drawn charts, maps and graphs represented their achievements and economic conditions in radically inventive forms, long before such ‘data visualisation’ was commonly used in social research.

    The photographs in ‘The American Negro Exhibit’ were drawn from African American communities across the United States. Both the photographers and subjects are mostly anonymous. They show people engaged in various occupations, in study and training, and posing formally for group and studio portraits. Elegant and dignified, they refute the degrading stereotypes of black people that were prevalent in white America. They also stood as a riposte to the racist representation of Africans at the Exposition Universelle, where ‘human zoos’ presented them as primitive beings leading a timeless existence outside of history.

    W. E. B. Du Bois became the most influential black civil rights activist of the first half of the twentieth century. His exhibit at the Paris Exposition continues to resonate as a powerful affirmation of the equal rights of black Americans to lives of freedom and fulfilment. This beautifully designed album reproduces the photographs alongside the revolutionary graphic works for the first time, and includes a marvellous essay by two celebrated art historians, Jacqueline Francis and Stephen G. Hall.
