Placing the ‘local’

Placing the ‘local’

(p.1) 1 Placing the ‘local’
Anglo-Jewry Since 1066

Tony Kushner

Manchester University Press

This chapter first sets out the purpose of the book, which is to reflect on the nature of local studies and explore the key question raised by Felix Driver and Raphael Samuel of whether it is ‘possible to maintain a sense of the uniqueness of localities, and the singularity of our attachments to them, without falling prey to introverted (and ultimately exclusionary) visions of the essence or spirit of places’? It then discusses ‘local’ and minority studies; ‘race’, community and local studies; and the evolution of Cornish studies.

Keywords:   local studies, localities, minority studies, race, community, Cornish studies
