Keith Vernon

5 History, citizenship and co-operative ­education, c. 1895–1930 Keith Vernon A strong sense of the past pervades the co-operative movement. With the origins of the modern movement traced back to 1844, discussions of the nature and principles of co-operation routinely return to their foundations in the grim industrial conditions of the hungry forties.1 Aspects of this historical culture have been analysed, primarily, through selected writings on the history of co-operation, such as those by G. J. Holyoake (see Yeo, chapter 4, this volume). The crop of jubilee

Milton and the idea of oratory. Milton and the Politics of Public Speech (Farnham, 2015) looks at Milton’s polemical prose alongside that of many of his contemporaries, and then examines how the imagery of classical citizenship (and more specifically imagery of groups explicitly excluded from citizenship of the Greek polis and Roman res publica ) plays out in his later poetry, above all in his Hebreo-Greek drama. Milton famously equates ‘poetry, and all good oratory’ in his note on the verse of Paradise Lost and one of the original features of my book is the

4 Migration, cosmopolitanism and ‘global citizenship’ from the 1990s The quest for ‘lifestyle’ in two generations I exist now in a state of limbo. I’ve lived in New Zealand for nearly four years, which my Wellington friends assure me is no time at all. I still have an English accent and gravitate without intention to other English people. But I don’t feel English any more. I don’t read the English news or support England against New Zealand in sport. I knew more about the All Blacks than I did about the British Lions on their recent tour, but I’m still not a

PART II Imperialism and citizenship These chapters foreground racial differentiation at the heart of colonialism, and the work of law(s), courts and legislatures, in defining a colonial population and in categorizing and excluding colonized populations from citizenship in specific localities.

5 Opportunities, outcomes and democratic citizenship: Young and Phillips on equality Introduction: the hegemony of opportunity T W A S noted in Chapter 3 that liberal debates on equality increasingly concentrate on the ideal of equal opportunities for all individuals. There are, to be sure, different interpretations of equal opportunities: thus the luck egalitarian literature kick-started by Dworkin, in particular, attempts to replace the old meritocracy – the talent-based equality of opportunity which Rawls rejected – with a ‘new’ meritocracy where the effort

Tribal identity, civic dislocation, and environmental health research

11 Whose citizenship in “citizen science”? Tribal identity, civic dislocation, and environmental health research Elizabeth Hoover Introduction: Citizen science After decades of traditional health and environmental studies which left many ­communities – ­especially low-­income and communities of c­olor – ­feeling disempowered, community involvement in the production of science is being heralded as necessary for the achievement of environmental justice (Shepard 2002; Cohen and Ottinger 2011; Wylie et al. 2014). Citizen science (CS) is broadly defined as

. This chapter will extend that discussion by exploring how university commentators have tried to systematise reading. Specifically, I am going to talk about close reading, a practice that intersects with numerous academic formations but that has also shaped how literature is taught in schools. As the title of this chapter suggests, I am preoccupied by reading’s role in forming civic identity, and it is in education that reading and citizenship come together most visibly. All theories of reading participate in the cultural imaginary of reading, by which I mean

6 Reading for hemispheric citizenship in Junot Díaz’s The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao In his 1992 Nobel Speech, Saint Lucian poet and Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott theorised Caribbean art as working to achieve the recovery and reconstruction what he called the region’s ‘shattered histories’. As he put it: ‘Antillean art is this restoration of our shattered histories, our shards of vocabulary, our archipelago becoming a synonym for pieces broken off from the original continent.’1 Walcott’s comments on the connections between art and history encapsulate the

Although the idea is not entirely new, this focus on relationship recognition does represent a significant change in the prioritisation of movement goals from the 1970s and 1980s. This shift has occurred despite the fact that in

The organic imperialism of Lionel Curtis and the nascent cosmopolitan imperialism of John Buchan demonstrate two strains of early twentieth-century thought on citizenship and the Empire. Those men, however, travelled in the worlds of political philosophy and the civil service. They were, with only occasional exceptions, 1 strangers to the world of
