Historical comedy on screen : subverting history with humour by Hannu Salmi( )

21 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 1,158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1893, Friedrich Engels branded history 'the cruelest goddess of all.' This sorrowful vision of the past is deeply rooted in the Western imagination, and history is thus presented as a joyless playground of inevitability rather than a droll world of possibilities. There are few places this is more evident than in historical cinema which tends to portray the past in a somber manner. Historical Comedy on Screen examines this tendency paying particular attention to the themes most difficult to laugh at and exploring the place where comical and historical storytelling intersect. The first scholarly book of its kind, this work emphasizes the many oft-overlooked comical renderings of history and asks what they have to tell us if we begin to take them seriously
Wagner and Wagnerism in nineteenth-century Sweden, Finland, and the Baltic Provinces : reception, enthusiasm, cult by Hannu Salmi( Book )

10 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Wagner and Wagnerism in Nineteenth-Century Sweden, Finland, and the Baltic Provinces reveals the surprising extent to which music lovers and operagoers from the various countries, many of them women, traveled to Wagner's Bayreuth Festival to attend performances. It also reconstructs the imaginative and patient efforts by which confirmed Wagnerians established Wagner societies in order to promote an understanding of the composer's work."--Jacket

A concise look at European culture between the Great Revolution in France and the First World War. The book views the culture of the 19th century in broad terms, integrating everyday ways of life into the story as mental, material and social practices
Imagined Germany : Richard Wagner's national utopia by Hannu Salmi( Book )

11 editions published in 1999 in English and German and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Wagner (1813-1883) has often been regarded as a symbol of "Germanness." Despite this view, few studies have been undertaken regarding his nationalistic thinking. Imagined Germany focuses on Wagner's idea of Deutschtum, especially during the unification of Germany, 1864-1871. Salmi discusses how Wagner defined Germanness, what stereotypes, ideas, and sentiments he attached to it, and what kind of state could realize Wagner's national ideals."--Jacket
Memory boxes : an experimental approach to cultural transfer in history, 1500-2000 by Heta Aali( )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume discusses a practical approach to cultural transfer and exchange through the concept of "memory box". Ideas of displacement, transfer, and cultural memory are explored through case studies from Scotland to Italy and Germany and from Finland and France to the American colonies. The authors develop an understanding of memory boxes as cultural constructions that are involved in the process of making and disputing memory - but which, simultaneously, are important agents for cultural transfer over space and time. This book emphasises "memory box" as an idea that allows us to study the c
Travelling notions of culture in early nineteenth-century Europe by Hannu Salmi( )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The notions of culture and civilization are at the heart of European self-image. This book focuses on how space and spatiality contributed to defining the concepts of culture and civilization and, conversely, what kind of spatial ramifications "culture" and "civilization" entailed. These questions have vital importance to the understanding of this formative period of modern Europe. The chapters of this volume concentrate on the following themes: What were the sites of culture, civilization and Bildung and how were these sites employed in defining these concepts? What kind of borders did this process of definition and its inherent spatial imagination produce? What were the connecting routes between the supposed centers and peripheries? What were the strategies of envisioning, negotiating and transforming cultural territories in early nineteenth-century Europe? This book adds new perspectives on ways of approaching spatiality in history by investigating, for example: the decisive role of the French revolution, the persistent interest in classical civilization and its sites, emerging urbanism and the culture of the cities, the changing constellations between centers and peripheries and the colonial extensions, or transfigurations, of culture. It also pays attention to the spatiality of culture as a metaphor, but simultaneously emphasizes the production of space in an era of technological innovation and change
Catastrophe, gender and urban experience, 1648-1920 by Deborah Simonton( )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Employing a broad definition of catastrophe, this book examines how urban communities conceived, adapted to, and were transformed by catastrophes. Competing views of gender figure in the telling and retelling of these tragedies, which are mediated by myth and memory. This is a nuanced account that physically and metaphorically maps men and women into the urban landscape and the worlds of catastrophe"--Provided by publisher
