Download Architecture And Rural Life In Central Delaware 1700 1900 books, "A pioneering account of mid-Atlantic folk architecture and of the nineteenth-century transformation of traditional agriculture. . . . A major study of American vernacular architecture."--Dell Upton, University of California, Berkeley "Bernard L. Herman has provided us with a model study in the interdisciplinary interpretation of a common landscape."--Robert Blair St. George, Journal of American Folklore "An impressive study that adds an important dimension to our understanding of the built environment."--Clifford E. Clark Jr., American Historical Review "A wide range of reader expectations will be met by this book. Herman provides a focused community study as well as an interpretation of vernacular architecture in the Mid-Atlantic region."--John Michael Vlach, Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians "Scholars will be impressed by Herman's ability to marshal different kinds of evidence to buttress his contention that architecture reveals not just how people materially ordered their lives but helped 'to create and maintain order, to project images of self and community, and to control meaning in social discourse.'"--Choice The Author: Bernard L. Herman teaches at the University of Delaware, where is a professor of art history and senior research fellow at the Center for Historic Architecture and Design. Among his many publications are Everyday Architecture of the Mid-Atlantic: Looking at Buildings and Landscapes (co-author with Gabrielle M. Lanier) and Historical Architectural and the Study of American Culture (co-editor with Lu Ann De Cunzo).

Country Boys Masculinity And Rural Life

by , Country Boys Masculinity And Rural Life Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Country Boys Masculinity And Rural Life books, Rural masculinity is hardly a typical topic for a book. There is something unexpected, faintly disturbing, even humorous about investigating that which has long been seen and yet so often overlooked. But the ways in which we think about and socially organize masculinity are of great significance in the lives of both men and women. In Country Boys we also see that masculinity is no less significant in rural life than in urban life. The essays in this volume offer much-needed insight into the myths and stereotypes as well as the reality of the lives of rural men. Interdisciplinary in scope, the contributions investigate what it means to be a farming man, a logging man, or a boy growing up in a country town and how this impacts both men and women in city and country. Chapters cover not only the United States but also Europe, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand, giving the book an unusually broad scope.

Medieval Rural Life In The Luttrell Psalter

by Janet Backhouse, Medieval Rural Life In The Luttrell Psalter Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Medieval Rural Life In The Luttrell Psalter books, The Luttrell Psalter is one of the best-known English manuscripts. Written and illuminated in the early 14th century for Sir Geoffrey Luttrell, it is celebrated for its series of attractive marginal illustrations showing scenes of life in mediaeval England. The most celebrated sequence of pictures in the manuscript represents the annual cycle of growing crops, including ploughing, sowing, weeding, harvesting, threshing and the delivery of the grain. Animal illustrations include domestic boars, geese, pigs, cattle, ferrets, rabbits, birds, cats and mice. Many scenes depict women playing a full part in rural life. In this study of these illustrations, Janet Backhouse reminds us that although The Luttrell Psalter was designed to provide a reflection of the status of the Luttrell family, its preservation has given a supremely emotive pictorial source for the daily life of rural England.
