Osamu Nakamura

8 Patient work and family care at Iwakura, Japan, c. 1799–1970 Osamu Nakamura Iwakura is a village located seven kilometres northeast of Kyoto, the ancient capital of Japan. It has a famous legend. During the reign of Emperor Go-Sanjo (reigned 1068–72), a princess who was afflicted with a mental condition was cured after praying to the image of Buddha at Daiunji-Temple in Iwakura and drinking water from the temple well.1 This is a well-known story that highlights the connection between Iwakura and mental illness. It was not uncommon for those suffering from a

5 Work, surveillance, refusal and revolt in Vichy and German-occupied France, 1940–44 The presence of the foreign labour force in our country poses an acute problem. Throughout the ages France has honoured itself as a welcoming land. One of the signs of its decadence, however, consisted of leaving the country’s borders wide open for the ever pressing flood of foreigners.1 In August 1940, one of the largest newspapers in south-western France, La Petite Gironde, greeted the agreement between the Vichy regime and the Mexican government on the re-emigration of

2 Autobiographical acts of reading and the work of Gloria Anzaldúa and Dorothy Allison In a 2007 interview for the Voices of Feminism Oral History Project, Dorothy Allison shares her experiences of being a feminist activist and organiser in the 1960s and 1970s while at college in Florida. She reveals how, attending one women’s meeting, she realised why she did not belong there: When I went to the women’s meeting … these people can afford to talk about this stuff, but I could lose my scholarship and be on the street. So I walked out, then didn’t go back. And that

The author reviews Raoul Peck’s 2016 film, I Am Not Your Negro, finding it a remarkable achievement as a documentary that breaks with cinematic conventions and emphasizes the importance of listening as much as looking. The director has singled out Baldwin as the writer whose work spoke most directly to his own identity and experience during his peripatetic childhood in Haiti and Africa, and in I Am Not Your Negro, Peck aims to ensure that Baldwin’s words will have a similar effect on audiences. However, even as it succeeds in reanimating Baldwin’s voice for a new political era, I Am Not Your Negro inadvertently exposes the difficulty of fully capturing or honoring the writer’s complex legacy. As scholars have long noted, interest in Baldwin’s life and work tends to divide along racial and sexual lines, and Peck’s documentary is no exception. The filmmaker privileges Baldwin’s blackness over his queerness by overlooking the parts of The Devil Finds Work and No Name in the Street in which the writer’s queerness figures prominently.

Jaime Lapeyre

8 ‘Some kindred form of medical social work’: Defining the boundaries of social work, health ­visiting and public health nursing in Europe, 1918–25 Jaime Lapeyre Introduction With the devastating losses throughout Europe during World War I, including millions killed and wounded and millions more who contracted tuberculosis and other infectious diseases, the post-war period marked a time of unprecedented public interest in the physical health and well-being of citizens. In response, several national governments enlisted hundreds of nurses and volunteer ‘visitors

Introduction Worker voice is perhaps the most politicised and power-centric of all WES issues. An eminent scholar many years ago, Alan Flanders ( 1970 ), articulated the point that ‘for management to gain control, they must first learn how to share it’. Thus, the very idea of having a say about work-related issues is a contested space, subject to various power struggles and forms of regulation and control, as well as hidden agendas and control strategies (see Wilkinson et al. , 2020 ). In this chapter, we discuss four approaches affecting ‘who speaks for

A negative characteristic, which he identifies with simple modernisation, is ‘productivism’, by which he means a psychological tendency towards compulsive and uncritical behaviour in areas of work and consumption. 7 In the economic sphere ‘productivism’ is connected with

He had apparently lived on my floor, though I’d never seen any elderly neighbors. I had no prior knowledge of this apartment, but its

The Victoria Memorial and imperial London

creation of a new imperial space in London: a ‘grand work of noble conception’. 1 In the closing years of the nineteenth century, it seemed to some observers that the built environment of London was inadequate to its role as an imperial city. The Queen Victoria Memorial, which comprised both a monument to the Queen in front of Buckingham Palace and the redesign of the Mall to incorporate the new Admiralty Arch, was intended as one step towards redressing that inadequacy. As conceived and executed by its proponents and
