 132 5 The stranger: performing ‘out-​of-​placeness’ in the UK and Europe In a rapidly expanding field of scholarship concerning performance and migration, this chapter animates the figure of the stranger to consider the function of (mis)recognition and undecidability in a range of solo performances made in relation to contemporary border regimes. Recent works including Alison Jeffers’ Refugees, Theatre and Crisis (2011), Yana Meerzon’s Performing Exile, Performing Self (2012), Victoria Sam’s Immigration and Contemporary British Theatre (2012) and Agnes

citizenship and labour, and some have indicated the bias pertinent to labour studies of interpreting citizenship claims as labour claims (Steadman-Jones, 1983 ; Somers, 2008, 1996 ). Indeed, the fieldwork above reveals a surprisingly close relationship between the notions of labour activism and activist citizenship. While labour- or class-based solidarity emerged as an important factor for many of the NGOs in this chapter, they also emphasise the importance of rights to voice, recognition and representation, all of which, while taking labour as a

intersecting national, sexual, racial, gendered, and class identifications and is, as a result, exclusionary. Instead, a queered citizenship is able to represent ‘multiply excluded alien partnerships between strangers and friends’.9 In the United States and Canada, notions of multicultural citizenship and ‘group-​differentiated rights’, posited by political theorists such as Will Kymlicka, and questions around the politics of recognition, theorised by political scientist and Indigenous scholar Glen Sean Coulthard, can be usefully repurposed to envision and fashion a

Constructing a queer haven

Discourses on LGBT asylum in the UK analyses fifteen years of debate, activism and media narrative and examines the way asylum is conceptualized at the crossroads of nationhood, post colonialism and sexual citizenship, reshaping in the process forms of sexual belongings to the nation.

Asylum has become a foremost site for the formulation and critique of LGBT human rights. This book intervenes in the ongoing discussion of homonationalism, sheds new light on the limitations of queer liberalism as a political strategy, and questions the prevailing modes of solidarity with queer migrants in the UK.

This book employs the methods of Discourse Analysis to study a large corpus encompassing media narratives, policy documents, debates with activists and NGOs, and also counter discourses emerging from art practice. The study of these discourses illuminates the construction of the social problem of LGBT asylum. Doing so, it shows how our understanding of asylum is firmly rooted in the individual stories of migration that are circulated in the media. The book also critiques the exclusionary management of cases by the state, especially in the way the state manufactures the authenticity of queer refugees. Finally, it investigates the affective economy of asylum, assessing critically the role of sympathy and challenging the happy goals of queer liberalism.

This book will be essential for researchers and students specializing in refugee studies and queer studies.

’ inevitably brings in large numbers. Because of name recognition and his status as a celebrity, Trump had very significant start-up advantages over other ‘outsider’ candidates such as Dr Ben Carson or Carly Fiorina. He then built, as has been noted, a solid base amongst those who regarded identity and identity-related economic issues such as immigration and trade as pivotal. At the same time, the votes of those who opposed him were split between rival contenders and Trump was implicitly hailed, despite comments and claims that would have killed off any other candidacy, as a

Indigenous land rights in early colonial New Zealand, it is sometimes assumed, were afforded rather greater recognition than those in other countries colonized by the British. After all, in New Zealand Maori had the benefit of a bilingual treaty with the Crown, the Treaty of Waitangi, which (in both Maori and English texts) afforded them strong guarantees. One

Gifting of space and product can be accounted for. They were also relatively low-resource actions: as we will see later, Harrods and Luce gained a considerable amount of recognition and publicity for their involvement, but the transactional costs remained low. Tracing and accounting for the labour of the actresses who

8 Champs de bataille Each memory-carrying group connected to the War of Independence possesses a specific perspective and has followed a distinct trajectory, even if these have not been developed in isolation. What these groups share is the objective of obtaining official recognition for their community and for their understanding of the past. In the last decade, the attention of activists has converged on particular institutions, notably the courtroom. Campaigns have also increasingly gravitated around certain themes, namely victimhood, responsibility and
