influence and translocation, in this case, that of the paradigmatic ex-patriate, T.S. Eliot. For Evelyn Waugh in A Handful of Dust, Eliot was a powerful Modernist precursor, and Eliot’s support for Djuna Barnes’s extraordinary novel Nightwood was made manifest by the Introduction he wrote for its second edition in 1937. Eliot as the quintessential Anglo-American cultural mediator is, for Horner and Zlosnik, a figure through whom we can consider the variety of transatlantic manifestations of Modernism, with attention paid to his apparent under-valuation of the Gothic mode

Within the country, racial segregation and exploitation severely affected the life chances and opportunities of the indigenous Africans who made up the majority of the population. The contours of colonial rule also applied to sports, which were divided into ‘expatriate sports’ and ‘African sports’, with white settlers and natives having separate sports governing

to speak a common language, the monolingual majority of both French and British local populations usually did not even realise the confusion they are causing (Baré n.d.). They resided in the same areas but occupied different worlds. It is as though, mutually unaware, they almost glided past one another. The same happened in the Mallorcan village of Deia, whose famous resident Robert Graves attracted a colony of expatriate artists. As one of the colony, who later became its ethnographer, stated: ‘Unless something occurred which directly involved a local and a

of French insignia, thus providing a separate identity.30 It is also possible that French exiles in Britain have been neglected in favour of their cousins in North America. The French communities in the USA and Canada, especially, were always much larger than their counterparts in London. It is calculated that, in 1939, the Frenchspeaking population in the USA was approximately 1,400,000, the majority being of Canadian or Louisiana extraction. Some 30,000 French expatriates were located in Washington and New York alone; London could boast no more than 7,000 colons

injured. 188 Nursing and mission in post-colonial Nigeria The purpose of this chapter is to examine the changes in nursing practice and personnel in Catholic mission hospitals that resulted from the Nigerian civil war from 1967 to 1970. Until then, Catholic sisters, or nuns, who served as mission nurses, physicians and midwives had been overwhelmingly white. When expatriates were expelled during the war, however, Nigerian sisters took over the leadership of Catholic healthcare institutions.3 This chapter focuses on the Medical Missionaries of Mary (MMM), the

Bill Schwarz raises in his introduction the question of what is specific to the West Indian expatriate situation, asking if, as well as similarities, there are differences between West Indian and other colonial immigrants. Perhaps one difference lies here. Almost

consciousness among the migrant population in which, following the words of the consul, ‘they never forget that they are Mexicans and their dreams are to go back in one way or the other’. The message conveyed is that their identity and final loyalty remain unchanged even as the migrants integrate and assimilate themselves into US society – a view also reflected in the changes made to the Mexican Constitution to allow Mexican expatriates to retain their Mexican citizenship even as they gain a new citizenship in their country of residence. In practice, however, such sentiments

It also links back to Arthur Phillips’ 1793 voyage to England with those four kangaroos and two Eora men. In fact, the narrative wants to give this kangaroo its own Indigenous identity and kinship system, tying the kangaroo hunt and its consequences to Aboriginal dispossession and demonstrating a parallel between, for example, Bennelong’s experience of expatriation and that of an

Famine, and as the outward flow reached its peak, the polemics of Repeal and especially Tenant Right meetings – routinely attended by priests – were roundly denouncing all emigration as the expatriating insult added to the injury of eviction; as a damaging, involuntary and avoidable banishment.107 Moreover, George Browne, the Bishop of Elphin, in whose diocese Strokestown was located, explained in an open address to Lord Shrewsbury what he regarded as the illusion of the emigrants’ free will. There is, he wrote, ‘a vast distinction between what is termed in human acts

It is not entirely clear to me for what kind of decisions a constitutional demos would have to be specified. Owen identifies a narrow class of constitutional decisions that “directly [concern] [non-residents’] very status as citizens” and that “specify the entitlements and obligations of citizens – such as, for example, laws
