 American Renaissance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the history of architecture, the American Renaissance was the period ca 1880 - 1914 (often thought to have begun with the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge), characterized by renewed national self-confidence and a feeling that the United States was the heir to Greek democracy, Roman law, and Renaissance humanism.
Americans felt that their civilization was uniquely the modern heir, and that it had come of age.
The American preoccupation with national identity (or nationalism) in this period was expressed by modernism and technology as well as academic classicism.

 ISAR - American Renaissance
American Renaissance is apparently becoming the intellectual centre for constructing an American white nationalism stripped of conspiracy theories and paramilitary infantilism.
The magazine pages and conference podia are reserved for a small coterie of college professors, religious figures and intellectuals (plus a few good friends, such as Sam Dickson).
Freed from preexisting ideological constraints, such as classical Hitlerism or Christian patriotism, American Renaissance is increasingly important to all, including neo-Confederates, Buchananites leaving the Republican Party and the former denizens of the Populist Party.

With the growth of the American magazine, then, came the growth of writing as a profession.
The great age of American magazines had begun, and a writer could conceive of making a living editing or writing for them.
Some magazines, such as Godey's Ladies Book, were targeted specifically toward women; others, like Frederick Douglass' antislavery journal The North Star, addressed specific social issues; still others, like Putnam's and Scribner's, were the in-house magazines of important book publishers who used the monthly journals to promote their writers.

 The American Renaissance 1876-1917
The American Renaissance was by nature an art and architecture of capitalism, and this it celebrated publicly and privately.
The term "American Renaissance" concerns the identification by many Americans-painters, sculptors, architects, craftsmen, scholars, collectors, politicians, financeers, and industrialists-with the period of the European Renaissance and the feeling that the Renaissance spirit had been captured again in the United States.
The American Renaissance can also be viewed as an imperialistic expression of American culture, not only in the appropriation of forms and symbols from foreign cultures, but also in the creation of the American empire.

Others involved in the Transcendental Club and its magazine The Dial included Margaret Fuller, editor of The Dial (1840-42), Amos Bronson Alcott, and William Ellery Channing.

The magazine limped on until 1928, but for the last few years of its life it was nearly a farce; its radical edge withered away and it became a broken relic of what had been.
According to Gilbert, one of the goals of the proletarian arts movement in the United States was the coming of an "American renaissance," of a rebirth in art and literature expressive of the new society that would be created in the wake of socialist revolution.
Another "independent radical magazine" to appear on the scene was the Modern Quarterly, launched by V.F. Calverton in 1923.

The magazine Crisis, edited by W E B DuBois, was a forum for the new black consciousness.
Later artists such as Romare Bearden and Jacob Lawrence were inspired by the Harlem Renaissance to depict subject matter concerned with African-American life, feelings, and racial pride.
The centre of the movement was the Harlem section of New York City, where aspects of African-American culture, including jazz, flourished from the early 20th century, and attracted a new white audience.

In the September issue of American Renaissance magazine, editor Jared Taylor inserted two noteworthy comments on pluralism and racial nationalism, one by David Horowitz and the other by himself.
Second, although some black Americans seem to feel justified in perpetrating violence and verbal abuse against whites, as American Renaissance dauntlessly details, it is predominantly white Christians who keep the victim industry alive and well, as my most recent book, Multiculturalism and the Politics of Guilt, tries to make clear.
In fact, although some early American leaders, including Southern ones, were rather optimistic about the prospects for a biracial society (though not about a racially egalitarian one), Taylor is right about the doubts that most of our founders harbored on this point.

Under Taylor’s stewardship, the magazine publishes articles with revealing tag lines like, “Statement on Race as a Biological Concept,” “American slaves had surprisingly positive things to say about slavery,” and “scientific data show that the races differ in intelligence—dogma holds otherwise”
One of America’s leading white supremacist publications is a magazine called American Renaissance.
In 1997 the magazine ran a glowing tribute to Madison Grant, the long-deceased author of "The Passing of the Great Race (1916), a pseudo-science tract -- highly popular in its day -- that blasted interracial marriages and championed eugenics, all in the service of preserving white racial integrity.

 The Southern Poverty Law Center's lunatic attack on immigration reformers
Probably the most discriminated people in American today are white men when it comes to jobs because there are more of those who had more education opportunities and who the test scores show are scoring better and on paper look more qualified.
American Renaissance, we are told, advocates racial breeding (which by the way is not true; to the best of my knowledge, only one passing comment in one article in the 12 year history of that publication has ever mentioned the idea of lowering reproduction rates for certain groups).
In any case, I as a speaker at an AR conference am tainted with the advocacy of racial breeding; and, since Tanton’s magazine published an article by me, so is John Tanton; and since Tanton is the leading figure in the modern immigration reform movement, so is the entire movement.

 neo-confederates
Edited by white separatist Jared Taylor, American Renaissance is a magazine with a highfalutin tone that links IQ levels to racial groups and promotes eugenics, the "science" of improving the human race through selective breeding.
His magazine promotes, among other things, the ideas that blacks have smaller brain capacity than whites and that they are inherently more violent than other races.
Rockwell recently argued that the Civil War "transformed the American regime from a federalist system based on freedom to a centralized state that circumscribed liberty in the name of public order." Desegregation in the civil rights era, he says, resulted in the "involuntary servitude" of (presumably white) business owners.
