Fellowship Work Summary, 1996–97

Chris Waters drafted three chapters of his current book project, Reinventing the Nation: Working-Class Culture, Collective Memory, and National ldentity in Twentieth-Century Britain. A shorter version of one of the chapters of that book— "Representations of Everyday Life: L. S. Lowry and the Landscape of Memory in Postwar Britain," accepted for publication in the journal Representations—was the subject of a public lecture at the National Humanities Center and appeared in the Center's magazine, Ideas (Vol. 5, No. 1).
