within the white community in India. Hence, colonial discourse was rife with hostile constructions of the white woman as a shallow, frivolous social butterfly who was busy enjoying the power of her sexuality and neglectful of her domestic responsibilities. Furthermore, in collating primary texts for my anthology, Memsahibs’ Writings (2008) I sought to capture in the words

Dreams, distortion, and the (cut of the) Real
Alexander Bove

that the position of apprehending oneself in the “I think” is already inscribed in reality itself, a position that lures us into our ideological assumption of mastery over the Real. The dream image, as in Lacan’s example of the patient Chuang-tsu dreaming he is a butterfly, does not obfuscate the way we must internalize this imaginary image of the self (the ego) as a “natural

personal reminiscence of ‘how you took a child, and you made him old’, and whether they can be interpreted as conveying paedophiliac connotations. ‘I dreamt about you last night . . .’  The simplicity and directness of the CAMPBELL PRINT.indd 110 21/09/2010 11:24 Sheila Whiteley 111 lyrics work like the ‘once upon a time’ of fairytale and myth, transporting the listener into a narrative that taps into a past experience. It is both reflective and wistful (‘you can pin and mount me like a butterfly’, but ‘take me to the haven of your bed’ was ‘something that you never

overload, intrusive media and incomprehensible ‘butterfly-wing’ connectivity added to old-fashioned power politics make for a toxic brew. In this global world local action and local solutions become more attractive and more compellingly effective. Here things can be handled with better judgement based in better understanding of diverse realities – ‘context is everything’. The concept of the learning region is central to this way of problem-solving. Like ‘lifelong learning’ the term is used variously and carelessly. Chapter 3 explores the meaning and importance of the

about Direct Cinema, and how that movement might be distinguished from classic cinéma vérité. While Klein’s early Muhammad Ali documentaries, Cassius, le grand (1964, b&w, 42 min.) and Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like a Bee (1969, b&w, 94 min.), or his Maydays­/Grand soirs et petits matins (1968­/1978, b&w, 97 min.), for example, deploy observational techniques similar to those of Robert Drew, Frederick Wiseman, D. A. Pennebaker, or the Maysles brothers in their Direct Cinema heyday, his approach is never faithful to some naive notion of rigorous objectivity

Postcolonial women writers in a transnational frame

eponymous voice of the spirit-medium of the 1890s land wars or chimurenga, and Under the Tongue (1996) is the deeply internalised narrative of a victim of incest. Butterfly Burning (1998), also strongly spatialised, was discussed in chapter 10. Thereafter, shifting away from the topic of Arundhati Roy’s reception in the west, which was the focus of chapter 9, I will offer an intertextual commentary on her first and to date only novel The God of Small Things and of her non-fictional polemic against transnationalism. Large nations, small gods Many recent commentaries have noted

principle, foundation, or source. When Pope satirised the social butterfly who might ‘stain her honour, or her new brocade’, he was mocking the value placed on clothing and bodily adornment, not disputing its importance, and was conveying in a few satirical words an understanding of the role of clothing which might have taken an academic commentator rather longer. 2 A commentator or describer of identities is therefore obliged to be a democratic empiricist, to begin by taking account of all aspects of behaviour, and may not dismiss anything as of no significance

television drama forms as contemporary urban drama, crime drama and the literary adaptation. We hope that historical analysis will further theoretical studies of how genres rise and fall in profile and popularity. Situation comedy, for example, gave rise to popular programmes such as The Rag Trade (BBC 1961–63), The Liver Birds (BBC 1969–96), Butterflies (BBC 1978–83) and Dad’s Army (BBC 1968–77). But other genres are less present today, such as the work-based series drama ( The Power Game (BBC 1965–69), The Troubleshooters (BBC 1965–72), The Brothers (BBC

work to minimise the risk to loss of viability of the system. A simple transmission belt of ‘instructions’ from our DNA to our bodies just does not exist. Look once more at the butterfly. It starts the life cycle as an egg, developing into a caterpillar, then a chrysalis and then a flying insect. At all stages it has, as far as we know, precisely the same set of DNA ‘instructions’. The point is that the organism does not just get DNA instructions to change its form. It also gets instructions from elsewhere. These come from other molecules like proteins inside the
