– legitimisation of the ‘abnormal’ Many of the aforementioned distinctions between normal and invalid categories of behaviour can also be seen in established perceptions of ‘art’ and how it intersects with everyday life. Understanding how this happens is therefore important 150 Part II Doing if we want to claim that art can provide an opportunity for liberation. This section looks at how art comes to be categorised in ways that sometimes prevent liberation. Radical art movements, from Dada, the Surrealists to the Situationist International have constantly emphasised the need

However, the members of the Hope Projects responded to Hannah's question by explaining that for them the act of storytelling in this context was cathartic.

After the revolutionary experiment geared to building up an authentic socialist everyday life from below in Soviet Russia of the 1920s, and the short-lived Khrushchevian experiment at the end of the 1950s and early 1960s which purported to modernize Soviet everyday life from above, the history of state socialism in the 1960s and later was a history of a more or less planned and deliberate withdrawal from the earlier

Omnibus literature and popular culture in nineteenth-century Paris

their youth. In this chapter, I investigate the literary appeal of the omnibus – a seemingly mundane element of everyday life – and introduce many of the works to which I will return in later chapters. My argument here is twofold: first, I show how the omnibus fascinated nineteenth-century writers because it embodied the ideas of ‘the popular’ and ‘the everyday’; second, I illustrate how this literature harnessed distinctive features of the omnibus – such as the diversity of the passengers, the idea of mixing different elements within the same space and the concept

Another was through education; and this was the work that earned Melanchthon a reputation as an architect of German education and the label ‘Preceptor of Germany.’ 8 This activity began with efforts to re-establish the Nuremberg Latin school, an institution that had prospered under the patronage of an educated patrician class, and continued through the reorganization of a number of higher institutions that would acquire and hold prominence for centuries. No individual before the nineteenth century was as influential in the

In this chapter, I draw on 15 months of ethnographic fieldwork in the Ukrainian– Romanian borderlands, which included more than 6 months of participant observation in Diyalivtsi, a village in the Chernivets’ka region of Ukraine, just 4 km from the main road between the region’s two main urban centres – Chernivtsi and Suceava.

By contrast, the perspective advanced here views global social change as experienced, given meaning, reinforced and/or challenged in the everyday structured social practices of individuals and groups, such that globalisation is marked by contestation over the reality and representation of social change. Such a perspective rests upon a conception of ‘everydayness’ and ‘everyday life’ that does not locate itself primarily in supposed ‘ground level’ activity or the

determinants outside or beyond literature, Bennett’s anti-aestheticism is committed to a ‘sociology of social forms’11 where the emphasis falls on exposing the regulatory character of ‘cultural institutions’ and on the need to bridge the gap between ‘literature’ and everyday life.12 The slippage implied here between art, literature and ‘lifeworld’ is certainly one which some forms of affirmative postmodern cultural criticism have facilitated, and in recent years ‘anti-aestheticism’ has itself, at times, almost become a unifying device for articulating the shared concerns of

, Richard Falk and Johan Galtung started shifting the focus of strategic studies towards peace studies. They also advanced the idea of security as relating not to the capacity of the sovereign state to accumulate power and use military means, but to human security, justice and everyday life (Dunn 1985; Falk 1983; Galtung 1969; Mack 1985). As was pointed out in the Introduction, the everyday in the liberal peace debates has been a methodological pathway to theorise peacebuilding’s content and format. It has also served to contextualise the research, taking into account the
