8 Beating Plowshares into Swords (1875–1881)

Virginia McConnell Simmons University Press of Colorado ePub

Beating Plowshares into Swords (1875–1881)

For Colorado’s Ute Indians, the second half of the 1870s was marked by confusion, frustration, anger, and tragedy. Utah’s Utes were adjusting to life in the Uintah Valley, as were Tabeguaches in the Uncompahgre Valley. Muaches and Capotes, reluctant for so long to take up a permanent home on a reservation in Colorado, were finally accepting the necessity of yielding to pressure. They began to move out of northern New Mexico. Many Weenuches continued to be more independent and roamed in the Four Corners area.

In late 1874 Agent S. A. Russell was notified that Tierra Amarilla would continue with a “special agent, no doubt you,” while another special agent, A. G. Irvine, would take care of Cimarrón. Services provided by the subagencies were limited, however. Toward the end of 1875 Irvine’s Indians, numbering about six or seven hundred Utes and Jicarilla Apaches, augmented by other Indians who came from time to time, were destitute. Irvine was giving them inferior and scant rations. Flour was moldy and maggot-infested, and meat was spoiled. On one occasion the recipients threw the meat in Irvine’s face. He drew his gun, and an exchange of fire ensued in which a Ute-Jicarilla named Barela was killed. Once again the military intervened by sending troops and provisions.

Письмо К. С. Станиславскому от С. Рахманинова

Letter to K. S. Stanislavsky from S. Rachmaninoff

The professional friendship between Rachmaninoff and Konstantin Stanislavsky, who was ten years his senior, goes back to 1897, when the composer got his first conducting job in Savva Mamontov’s private opera company. They got to know each other better in Yalta in the spring of 1900, seeing Chekhov every day, and by the time they met in Bayreuth for Wagner’s Ring in 1902 they were friends. Rachmaninoff attended the premiere of The Cherry Orchard on 17 January 1904, in honor of Chekhov’s name day. He was a “devoted worshipper” of the Moscow Art Theater, in the words of Sergei Bertensson, and felt for Stanislavsky “extraordinary admiration—I may even say tenderness” (B/L, 229). Bertensson observed this at first hand when Stanislavsky was in New York with the theater in 1922-23; Rachmaninoff saw every play in their repertory several times, visited the performers backstage, and entertained them in his “hospitable home on Riverside Drive” (ibid.)

Chapter Twenty-Four: The Couple as Parents: The Role of Children in Couple Treatment

David E Scharff Karnac Books ePub

Janine Wanlass

The parenting dimensions of the couple relationship enter treatment through different avenues. In my role as a child therapist, I routinely receive calls from distressed parents requesting help for their child. In these instances, the child holds the position of identified patient, and my work with the parents begins in this context. For example, a parent may call about a pre-school child's paralysing separation anxiety, a year five's oppositional attitude toward homework, or the discovery of an adolescent daughter's self-mutilation. The parent views the primary focus of treatment as the child, with couple and parenting issues placed in the distant background. Alternately, I may receive a referral for couple treatment, where parenting issues appear in the couple's initial list of difficulties or slip into the treatment through a side door. For instance, the wife may complain that the husband is preoccupied with work, leaving her as the sole functioning parent and ignoring the needs of his children. In these instances, the couple relationship is the primary focus of treatment, and parenting is discussed as a problematic aspect of that relationship. Although these different entry points to treatment convey important aspects of the couple and family dynamics, each brings the issue of parenting to the centre of treatment. In this chapter, I will discuss the differences between parent work and couple treatment, common issues and mechanisms for change that occur in the parenting aspect of couple therapy, two clinical illustrations of these concepts, and challenges for the therapist in this arena of couple work.

The Allure of the Archives

Collections ePub

Arlette Farge, translated by Thomas Scott-Railton

New Haven: Yale University Press. 2013. 152 pp. ISBN: 9780300176735

Reviewed by Matt Brennan, Ph.D candidate, Tulane University, Department of History, 6823 St. Charles Ave., 115 Hebert Hall, New Orleans, LA 70118;

In her remarkable book The Allure of the Archives, first published in 1989 and now available in Thomas Scott-Railton’s fine English translation, Arlette Farge offers an incisive examination of the historian’s craft for researchers and archivists alike. Though rooted in her extensive experience using the judicial archives of eighteenth-century France, Farge’s deft blend of anecdote and analysis offers insight into the process of historical inquiry that transcends topical, temporal, and geographic boundaries. The Allure of the Archives thus illuminates the ways in which archives and archivists shape the strategies for viewing, organizing, questioning, and synthesizing materials that comprise the historical imagination. As Farge writes, “[t] he archive is an excess of meaning,” yet her handbook for research, interpretation, and writing successfully suggests the approaches by which historians uncover their understandings of the past from the archive’s sometimes overwhelming depths (31).
