Syrian displacement and care in contemporary Beirut
Ella Parry- Davies

image of depressed passivity’ because ‘the alternative is to portray refugees as […] angry, as active agents of change’ ( 2012 : 139). Though the postcards do at times show anger in the children, there is also agency in their performances of humour, affection and care. I suggest, then, that resistance and subversion are not the only means by which agency might be expressed. Recognising the varied conditions within which people can manifest ethical or political action points towards the social value of interdependence. 6 The children’s photographs are funny, tender

The cases of Kaihara and Japan Blue, 1970–2015

prefecture. The two case studies in this chapter draw on interviews with the CEOs of Kaihara and Japan Blue and documents from both companies. The examples fit perfectly within a comparative, historical study of Japanese premium denim and jeans. On the one hand, the case studies demonstrate that producing denim, the fabric, is a different story and needs a different strategy from producing jeans, the garment. On the other, the two stories are also closely related because of interdependence between the two industries; Kaihara, for example, dyes Japan Blue’s woven cotton

brings into play others of Waller’s Restoration and Protectoral panegyrics, and in so doing, I suggest, he advances an attack that ranges more broadly than the immediate moral and political shortcomings of the late Caroline court. Marvell’s attack argues, I think, for a debilitating interdependence between the predominantly romance mode of Wallerian panegyric and the failures of English maritime power and court ideology. In thinking of Restoration panegyric as primarily romance in mode, I draw on Epic Romance, an important and wide-ranging study in which Colin Burrow

interdependence’ on an unprecedented complex and wide scale (LW2: 307). In industry, for example, the new corporations of 1920s America such as General Motors, Ford and General Electric did not just produce oligopolistic industries but had become vertically integrated entities. Such vertically integrated corporations and the widespread use of electricity, cheaper steel production, the chemical industry and the advent of the assembly line thus delivered mass industrial production.3 The move from an agrarian to such an advanced capitalist society had essentially brought about

Catholics. Their very increase in the US lent gradual force to their outlook. In 1900, certainly half of America’s twelve million Catholics were of Irish birth or descent. In 1995, around fifteen million held they were so, among sixty-five million US Catholics, if by then, only one-third of all Irish-descended Americans reported themselves as Catholic.9 If the Irish Catholic self-image in North America thus took only partial account of transatlantic realities, their strong sense of the interdependence of faith and ethnicity was well warranted before 1940.

interdependence of these terms and explore some of the consequences when we begin to deconstruct these structuring concepts. Although the suitability of the ‘frontier paradigm’ for Australian contexts has been questioned before, 3 the term frontier has nevertheless come to be synonymous with the contact period. Despite its centrality in contact historiography, it is exceptionally rare to

Domestic tragedy and city comedy

function that is important in ensuring stability in the wider world. The complex social structures in such a world are always clearly adumbrated in this drama, with the family as the smallest unit of an integrated social world placed in a realised geographic locality and based upon economic interdependence. Locale is created through reference to recognisable neighbourhoods: to the length and time it takes to move around them, to the kind of people

The making of the social subject
Mark Haugaard

subject reflects the process of formation of social order (see Elias 1995 : xiii; Mennell 1989 : 50). Elias argued that modernity was associated with a massive internalization of self-restraint, which mirrors the development of a social order characterized by centripetal forces of complex interdependence between social actors. Elias’ work focussed upon social transformations that took place in Western Europe, which he describes in terms of the civilizing process . The ethnocentric implications of this are so obvious that we do not need to restate them. While making

Weak empire to weak nation-state around Nagorno-Karabakh
Jan Koehler and Christoph Zürcher

-Karabakh conflict was midwife to the different ways three post-Soviet entities organised their (recognised or unrecognised) statehood. This chapter deals with the interdependence of institutional weakness of states and the organisation of conflict. Institutional weakness of statehood is at the same time both cause and consequence of violent conflict. On the one hand the escalation of conflict into violence is connected with the local exploitation of organisational voids in the official Soviet institutions. On the other hand, reinstitutionalising non-violent conflict after war and forced

Lucía y el sexo (2001)
Rob Stone

about authorship and designed to maximise his auteurist status in an international market. It delivers a complicated muddle of subjectivities rather than the geometrical exactitude of Los amantes del Círculo Polar and the fact that the subjectivity of Lorenzo, the author, should ultimately prove itself dominant corroborates the trend of Medem identifying with (and being identified with) his male protagonist. At the heart of Lucía y el sexo lies this complex interdependence of Medem and Lorenzo that has parallels in the relationships of the writer and the reader, the
