The narrative short Eva and Maria was directed by three women in Gothenburg, Marie Falksten, Mary Eisikovits and Annalena Öhrström, and shot by an entirely female crew. Unlike The Woman in Your Life Is You, the film was carefully scripted and shot on 16mm film during the summers of 1977 and 1978. The editing was completed in 1983. The film tells the story of Eva and Maria, two young women who

and people have been marginalised or structurally oppressed; not even of the idea they have often been targets rather than beneficiaries of racialisation. Historicising the structural power relationships and legacies of ‘race’, as Gilroy ( 2000 ) does, can globalise the study of identities in the Yugoslav region without inviting the essentialism that much of this field avoids. More scholars, inspired by struggles for racial equality and black liberation in the West, New Left activism around migrant solidarity and growing feminist engagement with

On the other hand, club football in Croatia promoted anti-government activism. Such movements included those defending the name of Dinamo Zagreb and the regionalist anti-Zagreb sentiments that were promoted by the Torcida fans of the Hajduk Split football club. Dinamo Zagreb acted as a catalyst for one of the best-supported anti-Tuœman lobbies in Croatia. This was a particularly interesting group because the ‘Bad

Duivenvoorden writes that between 1964–99, approximately 45,000 to 70,000 people in Amsterdam had some involvement with the squatters movement, the overwhelming majority of whom were not activists and whose participation derived from a diversity of motivations. Consider, for example, that in this movement, there were macrobiotic squats, vegan squats, feminist squats which prohibited the presence of men, as well as squatters who only sought free housing and lacked

This chapter considers the importance of Evangelical religion in nonconformist pacifism, particularly the Peace Society, and the impact that theological developments within the Society of Friends had upon the peace movement. David Bebbington has argued that Evangelicalism was based upon four key elements: conversion, in which an individual experienced a crisis which changed their personal faith; activism, or a commitment to spreading the word about the importance of conversion; biblicism, or

A social representation of scientific expertise

’s combination of scientific ideas with personal stories and political activism echoes Dewey’s call for ‘bare ideas’ to have ‘imaginative content and emotional appeal’ in order to be effective (Dewey, 1989: 115). AIT also takes seriously Dewey’s notion that scientific expertise is a social product rather than the result of individual scientific brilliance and that science communication marks the return of knowledge to its rightful owners: the public (Brown, 2009: 150). Indeed, AIT takes this one step further by seeking to empower its audience to gain the expertise to go out
