The representation of violence in Northern Irish art

is little wonder that this has become the critical focus of much artwork.29 For example, Rita Donagh, a Staffordshire-born artist, responded to ways in which the Sunday Times reported and photographed the Talbot Street bombing on 19 May 1974. One work from this series, Aftermath, includes a newspaper photograph of people milling about a corpse which has been covered up and shielded from the public gaze. Below this she has drawn an extension of this scene, enlarging (and thus foregrounding) the image of the hidden body. What conceals the person’s identity in her

The pronounced differences between Lombroso and Wulffen were remarked upon by another contemporary, in a newspaper article which asserted one of the pillars of legal reform, namely that ‘in contradiction to Lombroso’s theories of the born criminal, Wulffen vindicates the point of view that criminality is latently present in every human being’.9 The most satisfying way to describe Wulffen’s position during the Weimar period is as a mediator between the opposing discourses of nature and nurture in Weimar criminology, which, as Richard F. Wetzell has

Communism cannot be combated if we entertain and encourage it right at home.’ 43 Other newspaper reports called upon supporters

Mid-Victorian Merthyr Tydfil’s conspicuous population of amputee coalminers sometimes made themselves visible through acts of drunken violence, which made good copy in local newspapers. The Merthyr Telegraph published a number of reports taken from the town’s police court in the 1860s and 1870s, detailing the aggressive behaviour of men with wooden

Al’Quds , a Palestinian newspaper, showed its readers a cartoon of Mesut Yilmaz, Turkey’s Prime Minister, dressed with the Israeli flag, and, continued the newspaper, when answering the question what kind of songs he loves, Yilmaz replied: the Israeli anthem! 5 Israeli–Turkish relations can be divided into

Illustrirte Zeitung was the first German illustrated magazine; when Kanitz became its correspondent, it was one of the most prestigious (as well as expensive) illustrated magazines in the German language (Timotijević, 2011: 93). Even after leaving the Viennese academy, Kanitz continued to expand his intellectual horizons, broadening his knowledge about art and related topics in Munich, Dresden and

Widespread public interest in results, longer traditions, its year-round season and largest crowds, all support racing’s claims as Britain’s leading national sport. Yet Ross McKibbin’s critically well-received book on classes and cultures in England between 1918 and 1951 marginalised racing, arguing that: H Horseracing was a national sport only by a somewhat skewed definition of

Several letters have appeared in the two main national daily newspapers (The Monitor and The New Vision). Similarly, voices have been raised about the omission of an Article on women and land ownership in the Land Act enacted by Parliament in July 1998. The visibility of the national machinery has stimulated interest in gender inequality and in some cases this has led to action. The overall achievement of the
