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
Joshua Schuster

. 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

Civil rites of passage

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.

activism. Those who have not yet spent much time in feminist, queer and/​or anti-​racist contexts, and who have not taken gender studies classes or read feminist books, might not master the rules of the activist community quickly enough, and in those instances they risk being seen as unwilling to learn and are expelled. Learning the culturally and linguistically specific intersectional feminist discourse, and adopting the ‘good feminist discussant’ position and voice, may be more challenging and time-​ consuming than the rule of expulsion

Surveillance and transgender bodies in a post-9/ 11 era of neoliberalism
Christine Quinan

In ‘Normalized Transgressions: Legitimizing the Transsexual Body as Productive,’ Dan Irving ( 2013 ) opens with a history of trans activism by invoking the 1966 Compton’s Cafeteria riot in San Francisco’s Tenderloin, an event that Susan Stryker ( 2008 : 74–5) has shown to be one of the most significant acts of collective militant queer resistance to police harassment. Irving then turns to a series of
