After Bloody Sunday : ethics, representation, justice by Tom Herron( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"After Bloody Sunday examines the portrayals of the day and its devastating repercussions in photography, film, theatre, poetry, television documentary, art installations, murals, commemorative events and legal discourse. The authors consider these representations' veridicity, their mechanisms of authenticity and their assumption that a particular medium - be it film, language, or visual art - can somehow articulate the 'truth' of Bloody Sunday." "The authors place special emphasis on the commemorative events held each year in Derry in which the families of the victims have - over many years - remembered their dead and injured, while at the same time building a highly-effective campaign that resulted, finally, in the new Inquiry." "Drawing on their expertise in the fields of literature, cultural theory, media studies and visual art, the authors have produced a thoroughly interdisciplinary approach towards the many representations that claim, with varying degrees of confidence, to tell the story of 'what really happened' on the streets of the Bogside on the afternoon of 30 January 1972"--Jacket

Programs 5-6 in a series that traces the major advances in knowledge in Western civilization since the Greeks, and demonstrates how our view of the world changes as our knowledge develops. Program 5 explains how from 1550 and forward science began to undermine the Church-sanctioned Aristotelian doctrine of the universe, in which the Sun and all the planets revolved around the Earth. In its place was established the model to which we adhere today of a clockwork universe, governed by discoverable laws of math and physics. Program 6 examines the reasons for and the effects of the Industrial Revolution. Shows how growing wealth, coupled with innovations in business and credit, created a new industrial society

Programs 7-8 in a series that traces the major advances in knowledge in Western civilization since the Greeks, and demonstrates how our view of the world changes as our knowledge develops. Program 7 looks at the rise of modern medicine and its surprising relationship with the invention of statistics, which doctors used to validate the efficacy of diagnoses and treatments; examines how bacteriology put the patient on a microscope slide and brought about a world in which even healthy human beings were reduced to statistics. Program 8 examines the mid-nineteenth century emergence of the theory of evolution and its effects; shows how Darwin's writings undermined the concept of an orderly, unchanging universe and the belief in the Biblical theory of creation

Programs 9-10 in a series that traces the major advances in knowledge in Western civilization since the Greeks, and demonstrates how our view of the world changes as our knowledge develops. Program 9 examines the revolution of physics through time. As scientists in 1800 investigated the new electric battery, their common- sense Newtonian world began to fall apart. A new science slowly evolved from pioneers from Faraday to Einstein. Program 10, the final program, reviews the series and recalls the many systems of belief which have been discarded as the discovery of new knowledge rendered them apparently invalid
