education programming would be ratcheted upwards in Canada as well in the face of growing environmental concerns. In general, golf superintendents further north seemed to have walked a similar trajectory to their American counterparts as the post-war years unfolded. For example, there was recognition in the early 1970s that a superintendent’s job description was growing increasingly complex. “[The superintendent] is no longer a simple lawn mower,” wrote Camil Labelle in his August, 1971 President’s Message

197 8 The return of Herero and Nama bones from Germany: the victims’ struggle for recognition and recurring genocide memories in Namibia Vilho Amukwaya Shigwedha Introduction In April 1904, General Adrian Dietrich Lothar von Trotha delivered his infamous order to exterminate the Herero and Nama people.1 The ‘Vernichtungsbefehl’, or extermination order, signifies Imperial Germany’s military response to the Herero and Nama popular revolts against Germany’s confiscation and domination of indigenous land. Close to 100,000 Herero and 20,000 Nama, mainly women and

discussions of recognition and care in Chapter 6 and of deliberative democracy in Chapter 9. A respect for difference and diversity is required as a reflection of the imperfectability of our knowledge, e.g. we must avoid overprescriptive views of what a meaningful human life involves in order to avoid assumptions regarding normality that invoke homogeneous notions of what it means to be human – with misogynist, disablist and homophobic notions being especially dangerous. Some degree of social equality is also required in order to ensure that that respect for difference is

5 Reformations, revolutions, continuity, and counter-reformations Why revolutions are so sartorially perilous In Robert Wise's 1962 film Two for the Seesaw , Shirley MacLaine reassures besuited middle-class lawyer Robert Mitchum, arriving at a Greenwich Village flat, ‘Take off your hat, and no one will know you've come to the wrong party.’ 1 The colour of a pair of socks or the style of a shirt in settled times are matters of social recognition or at the worst mundane snobbery. In unsettled times, they can be matters of

social classes – a tendency which addresses citizens as individuals rather than as members of social groups and categories. They are also increasingly designing policies to model public service delivery on market discipline. Thus the boundary between public and private becomes less clear. In the understanding of ‘the consumer’ that lies at the core of official recognition and policy formulation in this field there is an associated problem. The dominant view of consumer freedom and consumers’ interest as the right to purchase whatever they please in a free market, a

note how his approach fails to acknowledge how anti-liberal notions (social Darwinism, for instance) and anti-foundationalist notions (Nietzscheanism, for instance) have also been used to further racism. Such illiberal notions are do not correspond to the abstract universalism that, for Lloyd, is the source of racist thinking. Anti-colonial critique and metaphor According to Lloyd, ‘it is not in the first instance the antagonistic recognition of difference which constitutes the discourse of racism but the subordination of difference to the demand for identity’ (p. 71

Towards a future of techno-organic hybridity

identity includes an outside image and an inside integrity and constitutes the Triad of I. Unlike the uncertainty of embodiment, beliefs about human organs are based on a shared understanding that all share the biological condition of humanness. A lived embodied approach to theoretical discussions about embodiment is a recognition of how the reflective dimensions of embodiment are implicated when changes to the interior body are made with organic materials that are similar in terms of species. Recipients know when they receive a human organ. This universality is matched

century; it turned out to have extraordinary mobilising power and to appeal to a wide range of political actors. If the legal recognition of Jews was being accomplished in most countries of Western Europe by the end of the 1870s, though not in the East, this was far less true of social recognition of Jews. The emancipation of Jews became an object of multiple resentments, which found political expression in the conceptualisation of the term ‘antisemitism’ itself

chose qu’intervention’. 7 In the nineteenth century, the concept of ‘belligerency’ was applicable in internal wars: another state could recognize insurgents as ‘belligerents’ provided the armed conflict met certain criteria, the so-called ‘factual test’ (protracted armed conflict, insurgents administering a large portion of a state’s territory, insurgents headed by a responsible authority and so on). 8 Recognition of belligerency did not imply diplomatic

Italian, chose to speak Neapolitan a lot of the time outside work. My sister and I were instructed not to learn Neapolitan, although we did understand it and learnt to speak a bit. I very quickly perceived the stigmatised status of Neapolitan language and how that located people in terms of class status, levels of education and respectability. Outside the family, people’s frequently shocked reaction to my fluent Italian revealed the ambivalent processes at stake in the recognition of a linguistic subject who didn’t quite look Italian enough to be Italian. But my
