Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 30, 2013 10:54 AM

It's amazing how sarcasm (be it Oatmeal, xkcd or the Onion) can effectively convey important geopolitic subtexts.  What merits 'international outrage?'  What doesn't?  Why not?  If you don't see this newly-discovered outrage to be hypocritical how come?  


This make be think of Weber's definition of 'the state.'  Max Weber defined the state as the "entity which upholds the claim to the monopoly of the legitimate use of physical force in the enforcement of its order."  All the other countries are perfectly fine with the Syrian government killing Syrians and doing nothing about it because, among the club of states, that historically has been the perogative of the state.  Chemical weapons, however, are banned by international treaties and now the international community sees something worth stopping.  I'm not saying that this is how it should be; I'm just trying to explain what is as I see it.

This set of old "anti-suffrage" propaganda might seem funny, quaint or old-fashioned from our modern lens (or infuriatingly patriarchal), but they are also great primary document to examine the cultural values and political climate of the United States at the turn of the century (even that phrase is old-fashioned and now out of date).  For more see the Choices Program's supplemental board.

HISTOIRE-HDA

Première 

La Seconde Guerre mondiale

La ville écrin de l'Art

 

Un article en anglais sur le travail de Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse, photographe néerlandais spécialisé dans le "then and now" (littéralement "avant et maintenant"), technique qui consiste à intégrer des photographies anciennes dans le présent. Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse parcourt donc l'Europe sur les traces des lieux de la Seconde Guerre mondiale (1939-1945) pour ouvrir, du présent, une fenêtre sur le passé. La confrontation des deux époques est frappante et peut très bien s'inscrire dans la thématique de la "Ville meurtrie".

 

La page Flickr de Jo Hedwig Teeuwisse propose plus de 300 photos:

I show this picture to my classes with the simple prompt: this was a major figure in U.S. history in the first half of the 20th century.  Most pick female historical figures and are startled to find out that it was a revered president.  This slideshow demonstrates the cultural shift over time that has led to gendered norms on dress in the United States.  This article is quite compelling.

Samuel D'Amore's curator insight, December 15, 2014 7:01 PM

Afghanistan is without a doubt one of the most unstable nations in the Middle East today. Why is this? This video explains that the borders of the nation were artificially drawn by the British and Russian empires to serve as a boundary between them. Because they simply wanted a buffer zone they devoted little energy to making sure the various people within the borders would get along. Because of this falling the Europeans created a country with a diverse population that has for centuries created instability and chaos.  

Alec Castagno's curator insight, December 17, 2014 1:20 PM

Much of Afghanistan, both culturally and politically, has developed through the interests of other, larger geopolitical forces. The current borders are a reflection of previous empires, like the Russian and British Empires, and superpowers, like the Soviet Union and United States. Even parts of their culture, like holidays, are influences from other regions.

Louis Mazza's curator insight, March 25, 2:59 PM

In this video Jennifer L. Fluri explains the borders of Afghanistan. At first Afghanistan was used as a border outline between Russia and British India. The border facing India was named the Durand line, after Sir Durand, who convinced the leader of Afghanistan to respect the line.  There is Iranian/Persian influence in Afghanistan also with the celebration of Nowruz, the Iranian/Persian New Year. That is because Southern Afghanistan was part of Iran in 1502-1736, under the Safavid Empire. Also Dari is one of the main languages spoken in Afghanistan which came from Persia. She ends the video saying “where Afghanistan is today both culturally and geopolitically has to do with their geography”

Google Earth is a great teaching tool for geographers, but it is also a way to bring geography and spatial thinking to other disciplines.  Google Lit Trips makes the journeys that take place in literature (both fiction and non-fiction) all the more real by mapping out the movements as a KML file that can be viewed in Google Earth.  By embedding pictures, websites, videos and text into the path, this becomes an incredibly interactive resource for teachers of all levels.

This video does a fantastic job of showing how the United States has expanded and grown since its original 13 colonies. While many today might imagine that our nation was simply always this size in fact over many years of colonization, land purchases and land grabs America has eventually become what it is today.
