Recognition and care For reasons that will become clear, I want to treat care not in isolation, but in relation to the principle of recognition (cf. Daly, 2002: 263).

Bordering intimacy 5  ‘These water melons’, c.1860. The second time I encountered the image was in the Bristol Museum gallery in a display on Empire through the Lens, a display of twenty-seven images describing the impact of the British Empire. This time, the image was accompanied by a reading by Anderson and Mortimer Evelyn (2019). They highlight the racist composition of the image but also argue that in these labourers ‘look’ is a recognition that they are being caricatured. Within this look, they argue, ‘resides a testament to endurance’. The children’s stare, which

In the words of Diana Fuss, self-​identification is ‘the psychical mechanism that produces self-​recognition … the play of difference and similitude in self–​other relations … the detour through the other that defines a self ’.1 Self-​perception, in Fuss

“children” … I hope British hospitality is not being abused’ (quoted in McLaughlin 2018: 7). Faced with what Elizabeth Brown (2011) calls ‘unchildlike children’, the Daily Mail became the first newspaper to publicly use facial recognition software to ‘test’ the refugees’ ages (Wright and Drury 2017). The front covers of the following day’s papers were full of photographic portraits of the children – now transformed into ‘youth’ or ‘young men’ – with their suspected, computer-generated ages showing them to be adults. Focus fell on the apparent risk these ‘young men’ would

But as Gleason notes, such a principle entailed a recognition of the ‘national statehood’ of the constituent republics.4 Under Soviet

) However, the most visible period of growth, in terms of both the international recognition and institutional status of SfD, occurred in the opening years of the twenty-first century. During this time the UN raised the global status of SfD through a series of high-profile and formalized actions. The timeline of these global actions, summarized in Table 2 , has been widely documented in academic literature (e.g. Beutler, 2008 ; Kidd, 2008 ; Levermore and Beacom

These practices, however, signal also a demand for recognition by, and on behalf of, sections of white working-class communities who feel their problems have been overlooked, their grievances dismissed as motivated by narrow-minded 204 Loud and proud: passion and politics in the EDL prejudice and who, as a group, have been culturally marginalised and vilified (Kenny, 2012: 25–26).

These technologies became all the more commonplace after the events of 9/11, which offered a justification for expanding surveillance practices already in use or under development (Clarkson 2014 : 35). But these sorts of security technologies affect different populations differently. As Alissa Bohling ( 2012 : n.p.) writes, ‘because gender has

This precludes recognition of the positive role accorded to white maternity within imperialist ideologies, a recognition upon which Gayatri Spivak’s earlier work was based.5 The affirmative imperial function of maternity is suggested by the journey of the novel’s protagonists to the mines. The heroes’ path takes them across a landscape, which goes from a female ‘head’ (a waterspout) to her breasts (two massive mountains) and culminates in the vagina or anus
