Polish and Italian mothers in Norway

see a great advantage in that, actually I see only the benefits of spending time outside … While inside, where the space is limited by walls or by the toys that are all around, then how children play is less creative. Joanna implies that compared to Norway, children in Polish kindergartens do not spend enough time outside. The other study participants share the same view. While Joanna pays attention to the connection between space and intellectual development, Kasia emphasises a

creative dominance of their rivals. The technological revolution in smartphones and social media provides numerous platforms for ultras to present their collective performances to a global audience. YouTube and Instagram especially provide visual opportunities to present the groups socially. Spectacular images grab the public’s attention and can go viral. In February 2019, prior to their must-win Europa League match against Fenerbahçe, ultras of Zenit St Petersburg lined the road leading up to the Gazprom Arena. As the team bus drove past, each fan lit a flare to provide

healing as related to the function of human agency and self-creativity, as in Whyte and Callan's analyses, as well as Taussig's emphasis on the constructed nature of the social fact. If we take the principal object of anthropology to be essentially human in nature, this attention to the creative powers of humans should not come as a surprise. However, as Mattingly ( 2010 ) asserts, this has not always been the case. In rejecting the grand schemes of previously dominant schools such as structuralism and Marxism, anthropologists have for some

replied, is not a term of abuse, emphasising how a selection is always made, regardless of whether the camera is placed on a tripod or is in the hands of a filmmaker. According to him, nothing objective of pro-filmic reality could be extracted in any direct, unpolluted way with a camera or any other mechanical recording device. For Bateson, the difference between a handheld camera and tripod shooting was merely the degree of freedom and creative expression. When I set out to shoot the exorcism of Abu Omar I entirely agreed with Bateson. Cameras

this particular moment in history enriched the image of Cairo’s creative chaos as if it were a surreal Bruegelian tableau, how long could a revolutionary liminal moment last? For how long could the power of the street have survived? What timeline can we estimate was needed for the power of mass demonstrations to stand a chance against the violent confrontations and the mounting toll of deaths by the day? How long could the oft-repeated slogan heard in the street have helped keep the revolution alive: ‘More blood ought to be spilled in the streets and more martyrs are

Integrative concepts for a criminology of mass violence

repeat adult offenders in Liverpool, England, Maruna found that men who persisted in a life of crime created and pursued ‘condemnation scripts’: systematized understandings of themselves and the world around them based in anger, futility and resignation. This was in contrast to men who did not deny their past behaviour but who creatively reinterpreted it as not being reflective of the core, ‘real them’, who was, and remained, capable of reform. These men – in Maruna’s parlance, those following ‘redemption scripts’ – were much more likely to desist from offending. This

operations or blown up by landmines spoke not to ‘murder most foul’ but to death ‘by their own hands’. In such circumstances, the security police acted as creative director, landmines or limpet mines were the active agents, while bodies, sometimes alive, were mere matter to be acted upon.

entered the picture. It was not the work of handpicked professional historians or a master political authority, but rather the creative invention of independent writers, journalists, boosters, and businessmen who, as Mailänder suggests in the case of state functionaries in Nazi Germany, incorporated ideology into their own cultural practices.44 The Orwellian shaping of the ‘California Story’ to ‘make lies sound truthful and give an appearance of solidity to pure wind’ reminds me of several examples from the 2012 conference.45 How Hitler promoted cultural stereotypes of

How grave robbers, activists, and foreigners ended official silence about Stalin’s mass graves near Kiev

playing football with the skull of a child, filled with hay. Skulls – bigger ones – also lay at the goal. The earth had washed away, and time had polished them. We looked around. The area was scattered with skulls. Right there, Symonenko composed a verse that he later included in a poem that became famous in Ukraine: ‘We trample underfoot our enemies and friends./O poor Yoricks, all in the same style!/In the graveyard of executed illusions/There is no room for graves.’28 The three sent a memorandum about Bykivnia to the city soviet.

troped ‘If everything is information’ 121 as an overwhelming “‘avalanche”, “flood” or “rush” of data found in contemporary postgenomics and other fields in science … and the creative, tacit epistemic virtues that I call “care of the data”, the adroit, artful and cautious handling of large data sets that permit both multiple interpretations and multiple errors’ (Fortun 2015: 36). This relation between data, care and intense engagement is also played out at the LBA research sites, as those involved with caring for the data construct intimate relationships with it that
