of our collective memory. Movie memories are influenced by the
(inter)textuality of media styles – Fredric Jameson has gone so
far as to argue that such styles displace ‘real’ history.
The Civil Rights Movement made real history but the Movement struggle
was also a media event, played out as a teledrama in homes across

The English deist movement
The English deist movement:
a case study in the
construction of a myth
The essence of this chapter is that it is not possible to understand the
development of the myth of the English deist movement without
grasping the politico-religious context of late-seventeenth- and
early-eighteenth-century England and the growing role of public
opinion and opinion-makers within it. Some preliminary remarks
on the major elements of the politico-religious configuration of late
Tudor and Stuart England are therefore necessary.
, 2006 ) and how states, through such acts, irregularise the citizenship of marginalised minorities and restrict some of the rights they should have as citizens (van Baar, 2016 ; Sardelić, 2017b ; Nyers, 2019 ).
This chapter first looks at how states restrict the free movement of Roma in the enlarged and enlarging EU and justify this restriction by abiding with broader universalist principles and protecting the rights of all citizens. I show that this was the case in the debates on EU citizenship as well as the visa liberalisation for the
institution that shaped everyday rural life. Their presence still provoked rancour in some quarters, but by the end of the war, the co-operative movement provided a source of economic ideas for those who demanded a radical change in how their country was governed.
The Dáil's attempts to promote limited governmental programmes represented a real, subversive attempt to create a counter-state. 4 The assembly represented a potent symbol of popular resistance against British power in Ireland and acted as ‘a source of legitimacy for fighting men in the
The role of the women’s movement
in institutionalizing a gender focus in
public policy: the Ecuadorian experience
silvia vega ugalde 1
The institutionalization of a gender focus in state policy is
a long, complex process. It presupposes intervention in a
variety of areas and further presupposes the active presence in
society of actors who campaign, promote and lobby in order
that the gender dimension becomes visible in political and
social relations. In this chapter I present the experience of

The Philippine experience shows that a vibrant women’s
movement plays a critical role vis-à-vis a national women’s
machinery — lobbying for its creation, providing leadership and direction, pioneering new initiatives such as gender
training that are key components of gender mainstreaming, and serving as a gadfly when government fails
This chapter delves into the many ways in which British women doctors pressed for the development of an international movement for birth control and family planning, from the first attempt in 1928 to create an international organisation to the establishment of the International Planned Parenthood Federation in 1952.
In addition, this chapter pushes the transnational approach even further by showing how the circulation of actors and knowledge from Britain to France eased the creation of a

April–June 2002, however, held out the prospect of change by transforming the fortunes of France’s centre-right in two ways. A double victory

crossing the Med. Caroline Abu Sa’Da is General Director of its Swiss branch.
Juliano Fiori: SOS is very much a product of contemporary Europe. It’s a
civic response to refugees and migrants in the Med but also to nationalistic politics, or to the
return of nationalist movements to the forefront of European politics. How, then, does SOS differ
from European humanitarian NGOs founded in past decades?
Caroline Abu Sa’Da: SOS is a European citizen movement. Besides our
search-and-rescue activities, we aim to give to the greatest number of
