within TIE reflected in Rare Earth and the health activism around HIV/AIDS reflected in The Inner Circle. As such the politics of the company’s practice seemed to track closely the way the ‘politics of life itself ’ evolves as an iteration of biopolitics. Y Touring’s work though cannot simply be seen as health or environmentalist education or activism, even if some of their projects have engaged with these fields. Their intervention into the politics of life, rather than espousing a particular activist agenda, has been to open up emergent objects, ideas and

countering. The Rebalance policy accompanied US military pullbacks from Iraq and Afghanistan, with greater attention to a broad range of countries in Asia from India in the west, to Japan in the northeast, to the Pacific Island states in the southeast. US diplomatic activism increased; existing, substantial military deployments were maintained and strengthened in some areas; and trade and investment remained open and were poised to increase, notably via the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a twelve-nation Asia Pacific economic pact that represented the centrepiece of the

imaginary ‘ordinary people’ on whose behalf the Home Office Minister might have obligations of care and responsibility. At the same time, there are complexities to this seemingly stark divide in which pro-migration activism is also ensnared. For example, in the ‘I am an immigrant’ campaign discussed in Chapter 5 , which aimed to combat xenophobia by highlighting the lives of high-achieving migrants, a full spectrum of migrant lives – such as those

The political activism of women was positioned against the actions of the government and the Uitlanders, with the suggestion that women were more civilised than both because they would not entertain the possibility of going to war over an issue of political rights. Although these sentiments came from Alexa Peckover, the close working relationship between the two (Alexa was also active in the WLPA) meant that her ideas and reasoning were not so different from those of Priscilla Peckover. A clear hierarchy was presented, with peace and justice carrying more weight

decidedly and emphatically expressed their resolve to take this powerful and supreme principle as the distinctly Christian basis of their operations.20 This emphasis upon ‘scriptural form’ and activism indicates that the women who influenced the Committee were Evangelicals, probably mainly Evangelical Quakers. Although the Peace Society was by the mid-1870s beginning to feel the tension between public persuasiveness (which meant non-absolutism) and Christian orthodoxy (which meant opposition to all war), and made use of politically-based arguments for practical steps

sponsors of dialogue activities (Mohr and Raman, 2012). Studies of public-engagement exercises sometimes unwittingly reproduce the process-oriented languages of inclusion of public perspectives or the exclusion of uninvited or unruly publics, making it harder to focus on engagement as a mechanism for negotiating and potentially renegotiating substantive issues around science and the public interest. We explore these issues in our cases of animalresearch activism and indigenous communities, which, in opposing different aspects of the dominant order, can be viewed as

‘revolution’ but one that ‘produces a state that is representative and accountable’ (Richmond 193 Everyday resistance, peacebuilding and state-making 2011b: 431). Here again, the ‘hybrid’ outcome of a ‘representative and accountable state’ is above an account of resistance. The dynamism of power relations is made static by the possibility of achieving a common good between resisters and their targets. The everyday framework offers the possibility to observe the commonplace presence of resistance, even when forms of conscious and organised activism are absent. Its study of

What does race have to do with the Yugoslav region?

identity discourses on to somewhere which, by not sharing Britain's colonial history, also lacked Britain's insecurities about race, meant I did not even write down a citation. Scholarship by feminist and queer writers of colour, and campaigns to decentre Eurocentrism and whiteness at UK universities, would challenge me to rethink my past work on post-Yugoslav identities, as would listening on Twitter to a philosopher of critical race theory I had first followed for her disability activism, and trying to understand what I had meant when, teaching at

On last animals and future bison

. Callenbach’s Bring Back the Buffalo! – with its exclamation point usage akin to the eco-defence group Earth First! – positions itself between speculative imagination and practical planning as it takes up the cause to repopulate the animal across the plains. Callenbach saw this project as a convergence of idealist activism and pragmatic conservation as a model for future ecological movements. The rewilding of the bison offered Callenbach a post-utopian agenda which would promise practical solutions that still held big ecological payoff. The shift from a literary utopia to

Sean French is one of a number of reviewers who fails even to recognise Chaney’s activism when he describes the murder of ‘two white civil rights workers and a local black man’. 20 FBI champions of civil rights are set against largely silent and passive black victims of segregation, when J. Edgar Hoover’s baiting of King and his dismissal of civil rights struggles is almost as well documented
