documentary and dramatic programmes, particularly in the 1970s, at first primarily for the public-service market. As independent broadcasting grew in the UK during the 1990s, Hilmes notes how digital platforms quickly created a ‘new normal’ of high-end co-productions. These have been particularly popular in the UK and the USA.16 This continuing relationship between the UK and the USA highlights transnationalism, global audiences and cooperative productions, but also cultural engagement on an international scale; leading to the kind of further research this text seeks to

, under these circumstances, laughable. In earlier critical times, a work such as this would have been written off as a ‘europudding’, that is, the indigestible outcome of mixing up multiple European funding sources with little or no investment in cultural engagement, and a dilution of the project of building a distinctive national cinema. Writing in 1987 in the seminal Cinema and Ireland , Kevin Rockett, for instance, warned of the ‘necessary compromises of international co-productions’ (Rockett, Gibbons and Hill, 1987 : 143). Now, co-productions are the backbone of

When ideas travel: political theory, colonialism, and the history of ideas
Burke A. Hendrix and Deborah Baumgold

Jenco, ‘ “What Does Heaven Ever Say?” A Methods-​ Centered Approach to Cross-​cultural Engagement’, American Political Science Review, 101 (2007), 741–​55. Both Jenco and Godrej are concerned with how European colonialism was understood within the idioms of Chinese and Indian traditions respectively. 10 As seen especially in the formative work of Roxanne Euben, e.g. Enemy in the Mirror:  Islamic Fundamentalism and the Limits of Modern Rationalism:  A  Work of Comparative Political Theory (Princeton, NJ:  Princeton University Press, 1999).

The scholarly achievements of Sir James Ware

the printing world, it is quite clear that Dubliners looked to Ware to satisfy their intellectual interests. It is not simply the enthusiasm for books and manuscripts that is so fascinating, but the range of the material which individuals sought to borrow. For example, John King was loaned the History of Elizabeth (1625) by William Camden. Edward Parry received John Owen’s Epigrammata (1606–13) while Ware’s brother, Joseph, asked for a Latin play composed by George Wither, pointing to a demand for literature. There is also evidence of lively cultural engagement

Uses and critiques of ‘civilisation’
Jeremy C.A. Smith

23 Civilisations debated 23 across dimensions of migration, economic movements and connections, cultural engagement and the political reconstruction of civilisational models. Historical engagement entails dis-​engagement also. The non-​borrowings, dissonances and conflicts of civilisations are noted alongside cases of fragmentation and the collapse of large empires. The outline of inter-​civilisational engagement in Chapter 4 is broad in scope. I pepper the argument with examples to illustrate key points. One aim of Debating Civilisations is to sketch an

couple and Miriam into the ‘femme’ one, she is assimilating them too complacently into Western sexual and gender taxonomies, without any sense of their sexualities having been a part, at any point in history, of any cultural conversations regarding Islam and Muslim identities. In addition, in allowing her main intertext to be a novel set in the American South, she reveals a lack of cultural engagement with South African homosexualities, a feat potentially exacerbated by her having accessed the South African past via familial narratives and her own literary imagination

Notes on Ackroyd & Harvey ecocriticism and praxis
Eve Ropek

concern about the lack of resultant practical effect following strong cultural engagement with environmental issues is entirely understandable. Currently the Climart Project is attempting to determine whether ‘visual art affects viewer perceptions of climate change’; Adam Chodzko’s video Deep Above, about to be released at the time of writing, questions why we can understand climate change yet remain paralysed from taking action. Simon C. Estok notes the lack of data explicitly showing that studying ‘green’ texts leads to increased environmental activism, referring to

, maternity provision were all issues of direct concern to them. The British efforts to mould Barbados in an image of England through the Colonial and Development Welfare Act, and the British Council, had broadly failed. Colonial Development had barely touched the villages and the British Council was only able to scrape at the surface of cultural engagement. What emerged, however, was an

resistant to many of his initiatives, but despite this campaigns were launched and local clubs were established. 125 Groups like the Anglo-Asian and Anglo-Caribbean Conservative Societies aimed to encourage political and cultural engagement and on some level to engender Conservative sympathies. The impact of such groups was real and meaningful; Rowe has argued that there was ‘considerable progress’ in tackling the internal racism, but as a whole their success may have been limited by the machinations of the party at a national level. 126 In particular, the Leader
