After the Second World War there are several accounts of brides and grooms repurposing parachute silk to make a wedding dress. This study collects, records, and examines nine case studies of this sporadic practice, focusing primarily on parachute wedding gowns designed and worn in the United States between the post-war years of 1945 and 1949. By exploring the materiality of the fabric and the physical transformation involved in fashioning a dress from a parachute, these wedding dresses are seen as the result of creative resourcefulness. This practice also embodies the synthesis of the post-war transitions occurring within the personal and social spheres. In contrast to today's disposable culture, the parachute dresses of the Second World War emphasize singularity and historicity. Drawing from current scholarship on material culture and the complex relationships between people and their possessions, this study examines how parachute gowns bridge world-historical events and the lives of ordinary people. The dresses are vibrant material creations with lives and histories that are worth recording and remarking.

Contested Objects breaks new ground in the interdisciplinary study of material culture. Its focus is on the rich and varied legacy of objects from the First World War as the global conflict that defined the twentieth century. From the iconic German steel helmet to practice trenches on Salisbury Plain, and from the ‘Dazzle Ship’ phenomenon through medal-wearing, diary-writing, trophy collecting, the market in war souvenirs and the evocative reworking of European objects by African soldiers, this book presents a dazzling array of hitherto unseen worlds of the Great War. The innovative and multidisciplinary approach adopted here follows the lead established by Nicholas J. Saunders’ Matters of Conflict (Routledge 2004), and extends its geographical coverage to embrace a truly international perspective. Australia, Africa, Italy, Germany, France, Belgium and Britain are all represented by a cross-disciplinary group of scholars working in archaeology, anthropology, cultural history, art history, museology, and cultural heritage. The result is a volume that resonates with richly documented and theoretically informed case studies that illustrate how the experiences of war can be embodied in and represented by an endless variety of artefacts, whose ‘social lives’ have endured for almost a century and that continue to shape our perceptions of an increasingly dangerous world.

The way that characters in early modern theatrical performance think through their surroundings is important in our understanding of perception, memory, and other forms of embodied affective thought. Thinking Through Place on the Early Modern English Stage traces how characters orientthemselves within unfamiliar or otherwise strange locations, and how their locations function as scaffolding for these moments of "ecological thinking".Thinking through Place on the Early Modern English Stage shows how performance brings places into being, revealing a process that both resembles and parallels the cognitive work that early modern playgoers undertook in reimagining the stage as the settings of the dramatic fiction. It traces thevexed relationship between these two registers in works by Marlowe, Shakespeare, Beaumont, and Jonson, thereby countering a critical tradition that figures drama as a form of spatial abstraction. Instead it demonstrates that theatrical performance functioned as a means of thinking through and aboutplace in the early modern period.

Film has shaped modern society in part by changing its cultures of memory. Film, Music, Memory reveals that this change has rested in no small measure on the mnemonic powers of music. As films were consumed by growing American and European audiences, their soundtracks became an integral part of individual and collective memory. Berthold Hoeckner analyzes three critical processes through which music influenced this new culture of memory: storage, retrieval, and affect. Films store memory through an archive of cinematic scores. In turn, a few bars from a soundtrack instantly recall the image that accompanied them, and along with it, the affective experience of the movie. Hoeckner examines films that reflect directly on memory, whether by featuring an amnesic character, a traumatic event, or a surge of nostalgia. As the history of cinema unfolded, movies even began to recall their own history through quotations, remakes, and stories about how cinema contributed to the soundtrack of people’s lives. Ultimately, Film, Music, Memory demonstrates that music has transformed not only what we remember about the cinematic experience, but also how we relate to memory itself.

How is a sense of self formed from memory? It is difficult to conceptualize a psychology of the self without memory serving as the foundation. Earliest Childhood Memories provides a structure and a theory by which this question can be addressed. Cognitive-Perceptual Theory is the only personality theory grounded on autobiographical memory. In addition, Cognitive-Perceptual Theory addresses how growth and personality change affect memory organization. A chapter is given to the Early Memories Procedure (EMP), the first procedure to assess autobiographical memory. The EMP enables the practitioner to assess all major clinically relevant areas of autobiographical memory in less than 10 minutes of face-to-face clinician time.

Memory is seldom explored through the experience of geographically mobile, racialized populations. Whilst the relationships between the political value of landscape and national memory have previously been written through, there has been little mention of postcolonial, 'diasporic' racialized citizens. Using both visual and material culture, this book examines the value of 'landscape and memory' for postcolonial migrants living in Britain. It uses memory to examine how postcolonial citizenship in Britain is experienced - through remembered citizenships of 'other' geographies abroad. By reflecting on the cultural landscapes of British Asian women, the book reveals social-historical narratives about migration, citizenship and belonging. New spaces of memory are presented as mobile and as politically charged with meaning as the more formal spaces of memorialization. The book offers a refiguring of race memory as being critical to English heritage and postcolonial politics and makes an important contribution to the writings on memory, race and landscape.
