The Industrial Revolution and the changing face of Britain An exhibition at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts (2008-9) During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Britain experienced change in all aspects of life, as a result of the Industrial Revolution. Scientific advances and technological innovations brought growth in agricultural and industrial production, economic expansion and changes in living conditions, while at the same time there was a new sense of national identity and civic pride. The most dramatic changes were witnessed in rural areas, where the provincial landscape often became urban and industrialized following advances in agriculture, industry and shipping. Wealth accumulated in the regions and there was soon a need for country banking. These themes were explored in the temporary exhibition The Industrial Revolution and the Changing Face of Britain at the Barber Institute of Fine Arts in 2008–9, and are summarized in this essay. Agriculture Agriculture had dominated the British economy for centuries. Industry

Communication - Agence de communication, Lausanne et Neuchâtel History of British fascism, from the British Union of Fascists (BUF) to the British National Party (BNP) Lecture Notes: LECTURE ONE: The Roots of British Fascism Like its continental counterparts, inter-war British Fascism had deep roots in earlier movements of the 'Radical Right', particularly after 1880. These groups came from the political right. From Liberalism To Social Darwinism. The nineteenth century has been called an age of liberalism, a liberalism which was a reaction to the centralising tendencies of absolutism, and whose principles we find expressed by Locke or in the American Declaration of Independence. The liberal movement, however different it may have been in character, influence and political tactics in the various regions of central and western Europe, brought on to the political stage a commercial and industrial middle class whose liberal ideology changed - initially almost imperceptibly - as it gained economic and political power. There were different variations of Social Darwinism. British Anti-Semitism The Pre-War 'Radical Right' in Britain: An Assessment. (A.

Nuclear bunker on sale in Nottinghamshire - BBC News A Cold War-era bunker, complete with instructions for what to do during a nuclear attack, is up for auction. The underground bunker was built in the Nottinghamshire countryside, in 1961, at the height of tensions between the West and the Soviet Union. The small room, four metres below the ground, has been left more or less as it was when it was shut down in 1991, explained auctioneer Richard Gadd. It could have housed up to four staff. "It would have been quite uncomfortable but they still managed to fit them in somehow. "It wasn't really built for comfort, it was built for a purpose." And that purpose was to monitor the effects of what was believed to be an impending nuclear attack. It was built by the Royal Observers Corps, in Burton Joyce, in the year the construction of the Berlin Wall began and the Bay of Pigs invasion took place. The regiment built more than 1,500 monitoring posts across the country between 1956 and 1965. Mr Catford said it was rare to find one so well preserved.

Wiltshire - Wiltshire's Underground City - Wiltshire's Secret Underground City Making a dream date - Dream Gates "At the Foothills of Mt Helen". B.K.Connelly, 1981 You’re separated from your sweetheart and you’d like to have some good private time together. Can you do that? If you are embarking on shared dreaming as home entertainment, you get to choose your category. I know what I am talking about. Want to try this? But shared dreaming doesn’t require you to start out from the same place, or even on the same continent. To keep this simple, let’s assume you have a friend who is not physically present, with whom you’d like to share a dream adventure. 1. You might simply agree to try to meet in your dreams on (say) Wednesday night. 2. If you’re new to this kind of thing, it’s probably best to start out with a place in the physical world that one or both of you know. 3. The idea of simply hanging out with your partner in a delightful locale – and not having to pay for the plane ticket or the five-star hotel suite – may be juicy enough. 4. 5. 6. When you share, be alert to the time-slip phenomenon.

theLuddites Who Were The Luddites? The Luddites were textile workers in Nottinghamshire, Yorkshire and Lancashire, skilled artisans whose trade and communities were threatened by a combination of machines and other practices that had been unilaterally imposed by the aggressive new class of manufacturers that drove the Industrial Revolution. In Nottinghamshire, where the Luddite attacks began in November 1811, the ‘framework-knitters’ or ‘stockingers’ who produced hosiery using stocking frames had a number of grievances, including wage-cutting, the use of unapprenticed youths for the same purpose, and the use of the new ‘wide frames’, which produced cheap, inferior quality goods. The fact that the stockingers objected to the latter because they were destroying the reputation of their trade illustrates the conflict between skilled artisans and the free-market/industrial mindset. Revolution, war, starvation In addition to the economic and technological changes which produced Luddism, the period

Archée : cyberart et cyberculture artistique Internet au service d'une nouvelle triangulation dynamique « artiste-oeuvre-spectateur »: Nouvelles médiations et nouveaux critères de légitimation Elsa Olu Le monde de l'art ne réserve pas à tous ses ambassadeurs la même gloire, et ne saurait se targuer d'échapper à toute attitude discriminatoire envers ses nobles représentants. Les garants de l'ordre artistique sont légion, et sous couvert d'un élan esthétique qui se dit souvent humaniste, ils exercent un pouvoir qui, comme n'importe quel pouvoir, n'accorde ses faveurs qu'à quelques élus, fussent-ils rassemblés en une catégorie toute entière. L'art ne saurait prétendre renverser toutes les frontières, et ici comme ailleurs sont établis des critères non-légitimes qui permettent, ou non, aux femmes et aux hommes, d'y prendre place. Internet semble aujourd'hui pouvoir pallier ces discriminations, notamment par la réorganisation des conditions de visibilité et de légitimation du travail des artistes. Incidences Vers une nouvelle légitimité

UK Data Archive - OUR DATA IN USE About the data The UK National Food Survey collects weekly data on household food acquisition every year. It contains year and month specific information about all food entering the household using a diary reporting quantities and expenditures of food purchased. In particular it collects information on personal expenditure on snacks, meals, sweets and drinks consumed outside the home, and the number and type of meals (breakfast, lunch or dinner) offered to guests. In addition, it records some demographic characteristics, such as age and sex of each member of the family and of visitors, number of males and females working, household characteristics, region of residence, and socio-economic variables, such as household income and occupation of head of household. How the data were used Twenty-six waves of the National Food Survey were used for a PhD research on 'Nutrition, Health and Socio-Economic Status' documenting how diet changed in Britain between 1975 and 2000.

Pédagogie inversée : une carte mentale pour bien procéder « Le blog de Philippe Liria Posted by Philippe Liria sur 12/01/2015 Petit à petit, la pédagogie inversée est en train de gagner sa place au soleil. Les formations et les sites FLE s’en font de plus en plus l’écho, même si sa mise en place dans la classe de langue semble encore très discrète. Question de temps… Il y a à peine un peu plus de deux ans, c’était les yeux écarquillés que l’on écoutait untel parler d’inverser la classe (à commencer par les miens – à lire). Aujourd’hui, cette pédagogie fait son bonhomme de chemin car elle contribue à merveille à renforcer les tendances actuelles en enseignement/apprentissage des langues : autonomie, implication, responsabilité… On pourrait dire que, même si elle n’est pas nouvelle en soi (je vous renvoie au témoignage de Marcel Lebrun qui expliquait comment il inversait déjà ses cours dans les années 70), plusieurs éléments en favorisent la mise en place.

The secret history of women's football - BBC Newsbeat Classicisme (rationalisme universaliste (la Belle Nature saisie dans son objectivité par la Raison) = l'artiste génial, figure Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Le classicisme est un mouvement culturel, esthétique et artistique qui se développe en France, et plus largement en Europe, à la frontière entre le XVIIe siècle et le XVIIIe siècle, de 1660 à 1715. Il se définit par un ensemble de valeurs et de critères qui dessinent un idéal s'incarnant dans l’« honnête homme » et qui développent une esthétique fondée sur une recherche de la perfection, son maître mot est la raison. La centralisation monarchique, qui s'affirme dès 1630 sous l'autorité de Richelieu d'abord, puis de Mazarin, dépasse le cadre politique pour toucher le domaine culturel. Origine et définition de la notion La notion de « classicisme » pose quelques problèmes de définition. Le classicisme renverrait à un moment de grâce de la littérature française où l'esprit français se serait le plus parfaitement illustré. Le classicisme à la française ne se définit cependant pas seulement par des critères historiques. Littérature Contextes Théâtre
