Performing Wales

People, Memory and Place

Lisa Lewis

Using performance studies as an optic, this book explores the idea of Welsh culture as performance, concentrating on four distinct areas of cultural production, namely the Museum, Heritage, the Festival, and Theatre. By focusing on notions of people, memory and place in the performance of culture, the discussion investigates how the idea of Wales is sustained through performative cultural practices.

Gothic Britain

Dark Places in the Provinces and Margins of the British Isles

Ruth Heholt and William Hughes

‘Gothic has very often been considered as a way of reimagining history; what this admirable collection of essays focuses on is the constant reimagining of geography. Centre and periphery, metropolis and province: all of these are connected in an intricate tangle of fears and anxieties, constantly remediated by changes in travel, transport, accessibility. Here, then, are the component parts of Britain seen through the quasi-infinite variety of Gothic lenses.’
- Professor David Punter, University of Bristol

Darwinian Feminism and Early Science Fiction

Angels, Amazons and Women

Patrick B. Sharp

‘Patrick B. Sharp’s study deftly places late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century utopias by women and women’s science fiction in the early pulp magazines in the context of Darwinian feminism. This insightful analysis allows us to see these women not only as contributing domestic and gender issues to the SF tradition, but also as participating in scientific debate. Elegantly written, solidly researched, perceptive in its interpretations of individual stories, this book is one that SF scholars, as well as many fans, will want to read and re-read.’

- Professor Jane Donawerth, University of Maryland

The Darkening Nation

Race, Neoliberalism and Crisis in Argentina

Ignacio Aguiló

‘Ignacio Aguiló’s study is a major contribution to an emerging scholarship on race in Argentina. Built on solid research, The Darkening Nation presents a compelling account of the ways in which Argentine culture dealt with racial anxieties and struggled to redefine nationhood in the aftermath of the 2001 crisis.’

- Professor Ezequiel Adamovsky, University of Buenos Aires/University of San Martín
