The american west in the world transnational and comparative perspectives - The American West Season, Episode and Cast Information - AMC


Like a stranger, sharper, more localized version of Sam Shepard’s Motel Chronicles set in the Pacific Northwest. And I love Motel Chronicles .

There are plenty of novels that include questing through the American West of the 19th century. I’ve read my share. In the Distance is more whole, more crackling, alive, awake, and speaking than any of those others. The book is new, recently published, but also new in the better and more important sense.

The most alive I felt as a reader in the year 2016 was walking through the rooms of our small home (I hate the word condo, and no one says condominium) reading Run the Red Lights aloud to my wife and dog. Topeka, Missoula, Abilene; all these places are here and known deeply in this book, but I’m being reductive. The titular poem is one of my favorite pieces of writing.

Belmont Baptist Church, 806 N. Belmont Ave., has scheduled a fundraiser luncheon and church conference from noon to 2 p.m. Sunday.

Hermon Atkins MacNeil (1866-1947), The Moqui Prayer for Rain, 1895-96 (cast about 1897). Daniel and Mathew Wolf in memory of Diane R. Wolf.

The American West in Bronze , 1850–1925, showcases sculptures by Frederic Remington, Charles M. Russell, Hermon Atkins MacNeil, Paul Manship, and more than 20 other artists.

The first full-scale exhibition of western bronzes, it includes pieces depicting American Indians, cowboys, cavalry, pioneers, horses, buffaloes, and other symbols of the West during the late 1800s and early 1900s. The American West in Bronze offers a fresh and compelling look at the complex role that artists played in creating three-dimensional interpretations of the Old West—whether based on fact, fiction, or something in-between.

Spanning the years from 1865 to 1890, The American West , shows how, in the aftermath of the Civil War, the United States transformed into the “land of opportunity.”

The 8-episode series chronicles the personal, little-known stories of American Western legends such as Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, Crazy Horse and Sitting Bull.

The west was won in the 40 years between the end of the Civil War and the turn of the century. From the Civil War veterans first heading out into the unknown, to the final gunshot that closed the Frontier, the west would come to define American identity. But the land didn’t come without a fight. As the borders expanded further and further, outlaws ruled the land, and in this lawless territory, the only justice was power.

In the American imagination, the rugged, vast landscapes of the West are dotted with solitary men on horseback—cowboys, outlaws, sheriffs. But the frontier was also home to women whose stories don’t match the standard Hollywood Western script. What brought women to places like California and Wyoming, and what lives could they lead there? Did Western women experience the same freedoms and adventures as their male counterparts?

In advance of the “What It Means to Be American” launch event “ The Women of the West ,” we asked historians: What opportunities did the American West offer women that they may not have had back East?

Let’s begin with one of those invisible, obvious facts of history: Women had been living in what became “the West” centuries before anyone arrived from “back East.” We have plenty of evidence of the ways they claimed homes and made communities, from the remnants of the Cahokia Mounds to the majestic ruins of Pueblo Bonito at Chaco Canyon, where archaeologist Patricia Crown has found evidence of chocolate and macaws from the 12th century. With the advent of European contact, Spanish and Mexican and indigenous women lived in—and came from—all directions.
