EMPIRES OF LIES? THE POLITICAL USES OF CULTURAL HERITAGE IN WAR by Nour A. Munawar (2023)

"This article investigates how cultural memory has been manipulated in the war in Ukraine, and in the previously occupied Crimea. We argue that cultural heritage, memory, and museum collections have been removed and/or repurposed to legitimise the current invasion by linking it to a grand narrative of Russian power and the recovery of ancestral lands. We present case studies from the annexation of Crimea (2014), the war in Ukraine (2022 -), and make a brief comparison with the armed conflict in Syria (2011 – 2022)."

    A Black author takes a new look at Georgia's white founder and his failed attempt to ban slavery

    “It was stunning,” Thurmond recalled. “Initially, I was consumed by disbelief. I didn’t believe it was true.[...] Now he has written a provocatively titled book: “James Oglethorpe, Father Of Georgia — A Founder’s Journey From Slave Trader to Abolitionist.”

    When I first heard Romagnol, I thought it sounded a bit French. Reading "San Marino la storia in miniatura", with its snippets of Romagnol songs & poems led me to a YT recording of someone speaking Romagnol. Many commenters who spoke Catalan said they could understand it easily, so I tested Google Translate out with "detect language" on the following. It said "Corsican" and offered a translation for almost every word. Interesting! @bookstodon

    "In contrast, Locke lived at a time when it was still possible for a well-educated man to master many branches of knowledge. The polymath was still a reality: John Locke, though primarily a philosopher, was a qualified doctor, and wrote on theology, political theory, and education. His herbarium (a collection of 3,000 flowers) preserved between sheets of his pupils' exercises, and now housed in the Bodleian Library at Oxford) is possibly the oldest surviving collection of English wild flowers."

    The Shintō shrine Jōnangū (城南宮) in Kyōto, was a palace of Emperors from the beginning of the Period in 794. It has from different periods since then, and a patch of pink and white blossoms around a big stone lantern is a most stunning sight to behold. Several years ago the head priest showed me around and explained the history in Japanese. Jōnangū is not well known to tourists, but it draws many reverent Japanese.

    The third photo is of a teahouse and a reddish variety of plum blossoms. The last photo shows what my American friend whom I guided got: a seal written in by the shrine maiden (o-miko-san). Jōnangū is written down the center, with yesterday's date down the left side. The right side is what the shrine especially offers: houyoke - a to avoid obstacles or worries, such as with one's family. There is a great demand for such nowadays.
