Hawkman (Carter Hall)

Hawkman is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics. Created by Gardner Fox and Dennis Neville, the character first appeared in Flash Comics #1. There are two separate origins for Carter Hall: the Post-Hawkworld origin. In the days of ancient Egypt, Prince Khufu is engaged in a feud with his rival, the Egyptian priest Hath-Set; the priest captures both Khufu and his consort Chay-Ara, kills them. Millennia in 1940, Khufu is reincarnated as American archaeologist Carter Hall, Chay-Ara as Shiera Sanders. Hath-Set himself is reincarnated as a scientist named Anton Hastor. Upon finding the ancient knife Hath-Set used to kill him, Hall regains his memories of his past life and recognizes Hastor as the reincarnated evil priest. Using the properties of "Nth metal" to craft a gravity-defying belt, Hall creates wings and a costume confronting Hastor as Hawkman after Anton captured Shiera with a spell that drew her to his lair, he encounters and remembers Shiera during this time.

Following Hastor's defeat, the two begin a romance. Hawkman becomes a charter member of the Justice Society of America, takes the position of permanent chairman, following the Flash and Green Lantern. Shiera, adopts the identity of Hawkgirl and fights beside Hall throughout the 1940s. In 1942, Carter enlists in the U. S. Army Air Force as an Airman and serves as a pilot with the 1st Interceptor Command during World War II. Hawkman is JSA chairman in 1951 when the team is investigated by the "Joint Congressional Un-American Activities Committee" for possible communist sympathies. Congress asks members of the JSA to reveal their identities; the heroes decline, Hawkman and most of the JSA retire for the bulk of the 1950s. The JSA and Hawkman regroup in the early 1960s following the Flash's meeting with his counterpart on the parallel world Earth-1, the JSA being active on Earth-2. Around this time, the Halls, having married, have Hector. Little is known of Hawkman's activities during the 1960s, other than the JSA's annual meeting with Earth-1's Justice League of America.

In the early 1980s, Hawkman is instrumental in denying his son and other JSA children membership in the JSA, leading directly to the formation of Infinity, Inc. Following Crisis on Infinite Earths, some of Hall's history was retconned by DC when the parallel worlds were combined into one, but one piece of retroactive continuity was written before Crisis and fills out early Hall history: All-Star Squadron Annual #3 states that during a JSA battle against Ian Karkull, the villain imbued them with energy which retarded their aging, allowing Hall and many others - as well as their spouses - to remain active into the late 20th century without infirmity. Following the Crisis, the Golden Age and the Silver Age Hawkmen lived on the same Earth, until Carter was cast off into Limbo in the Last Days of the Justice Society one-shot; the Hawkworld miniseries retold the origins of Katar Hol and Shayera Thal from a modern perspective, but following its success, DC launched a Hawkworld regular series, taking place after the miniseries, resulting in a complete reboot of Hawkman's continuity.

Much of Carter Hall's post-Hawkworld history is fleshed out in the pages of Hawkman. These two titles, penned to a great extent by writers David S. Goyer, Geoff Johns, James Dale Robinson, examine Hall's previous lives. According to the post-Hawkworld origin, Prince Khufu lives during the reign of Ramesses II in the 19th dynasty of ancient Egypt. Khufu believes that soul, will not journey on to the land of the afterlife. Rather, his soul and that of his betrothed, Chay-Ara, are fated to remain in the mortal world; as prophesied by the wizard Nabu, a spacecraft lands in Egypt. Prince Khufu and the champion Teth-Adam search the desert coming across the remains of a Thanagarian ship styled with a hawk-like motif. Nabu casts a spell translating the strange language of the female space traveler. Just before dying, she whispers the words, "Nth metal", the name of the substance that powered the downed ship. Teth-Adam lifts the ship back to Khufu's palace, where it is studied inside the Temple of Horus at Erdu.

The remaining Nth metal is examined, its most obvious property proves to be its ability to negate gravity. The remaining sample from the ship is melted and used to create several remarkable devices, including a scarab which allows Khufu to fly, a deadly knife, a battle glove referred to as the Claw of Horus. However, the metal strengthens the souls of Khufu and Chay-Ara, binding them together in their love and imprinting them with the collective knowledge of Thanagar. Although the villainous priest Hath-Set murders the two with the knife of Nth metal, their souls live on in the mortal plane, they are reincarnated over many lifetimes, always finding true love in each other, but cursed to be killed at the hands of a reincarnated Hath-Set. After his death, Khufu's soul is reincarnated countless times in markedly different eras and locations; some of his known reincarnated identities have been depicted in Hawkman and include, but are not limited to: Brian Kent, alive during 5th-century Britain, love of Lady Celia Penbrook.

The soul of Prince Khufu is reborn as Carter Hall, an archaeologist active during the 194

Conceptual history

Conceptual history is a branch of historical and cultural studies that deals with the historical semantics of terms. It sees the etymology and the change in meaning of terms as forming a crucial basis for contemporary cultural and linguistic understanding. Conceptual history deals with the evolution of paradigmatic ideas and value systems over time, such as "liberty" or "reform", it argues that social history – indeed all historical reflection – must begin with an understanding of contingent cultural values and practices in their particular contexts over time, not as unchanging ideologies or processes. Interest in conceptual history was given a particular boost in the 20th century through the publication of the Historisches Wörterbuch der Philosophie, the Geschichtliche Grundbegriffe, the journal Archiv für Begriffsgeschichte. Conceptual history is an interdisciplinary methodology. Alongside the philosopher Joachim Ritter, the historians Otto Brunner and Reinhart Koselleck, the sociologist Erich Rothacker are viewed as its pioneers in the German-speaking world and internationally.

Raymond Williams was the leading scholar in the English-speaking world. Today, conceptual history is promoted by the History of Concepts Group and its peer-reviewed journal Contributions to the History of Concepts under the lead of Margrit Pernau, Jan Ifversen, Jani Marjanen. Examples of conceptual histories include a genealogy of the concept of globalization drawing on the approach of Williams written by Paul James and Manfred B. Steger: Although keywords represent a critical mass of the vocabulary of any given era, the history of their meaning construction remains obscure. "Globalization" is no exception. While the meanings of other seminal "keywords" such as "economics", "culture", or "modernity" evolved rather and built upon a continuous base, "globalization" has had a short and discontinuous history.
