Empire, race and free speech in the battle for the university

front of attacks on ‘woke’ ideology, especially in elite education. The mobilisation of free speech as a front in the reactionary assault on universities is too big to cover in detail here, but is increasingly well documented. 35 Real and fabricated concerns about freedom of expression have long characterised the encounter between far right politics and democratic societies, particularly in universities

films she had shown mainly an ethnically uniform French society, before starting at the end of the 1980s to introduce in a more direct way other social and ethnic groups. Thus, she reflects social changes and its consequences (white- and blue-collar delinquency and drugs in Romuald et Juliette, unemployment and social exclusion in La Crise), with the arrival of a pluri-ethnic French society. At a time when racism was becoming a wider problem fuelled among other things by the rise of the far-right political party Front

characteristics of a science-fiction film. It could be seen as a piece of pro-life propaganda and a heavy vehicle for family values. However, the ideological reappropriation of family matters by right-wing and far-right political movements does not necessarily imply that family is in itself a ‘right-wing’ or conservative issue. One way of understanding these apparent contradictions would be to consider the specificity of France and French feminists with regard to motherhood. Indeed, motherhood has always been a tricky issue for feminists

Representations of Marseille

foreground, far-right political activists paste posters to the wall proclaiming ‘Préférence Nationale’ and ‘Immigration Invasion’. As the teenagers spit upon their posters, the distant sounds of raï serve to challenge the far-right’s vision of hexagonal hegemony. The role played by the sea and water in the film merits further exploration and recalls comments made by the director Claire Denis who, when discussing her own experience of filming in Marseille, argued that the Mediterranean can be seen symbolically as a kind of amniotic fluid, which helps link a film

frequently described as ‘bogus’ or ‘illegal’, and linked with terrorism, violent crime or AIDS (Greenslade 2005). Support for far-right political parties, such as the British National Party, has risen in some parts of the country. Racism and violent racist attacks are more common in some dispersal locations outside London. Kenyan asylum seeker, Kamwaura Nygothi, documents her experiences in Middlesborough for example, where, she states, ‘Every moment for me is fear’ (Nygothi 2004).

Images of the vans circulated quickly on social media, along with the hashtag #racistvan, directly connecting the language used with the history of the words ‘go home’ as racist abuse used in the streets and by far-right political groups such as the National Front in the 1970s

far right political parties (Ignazi, 2003: 106). At demonstrations, people applauded and often posed for pictures with the c­ o-leaders and sometimes a chant of ‘Tommy Robinson’s barmy army’ could be heard (field diary, 29 September 2012). Speeches were passionate but not rabble-rousing and an effort was made to include local speakers, women speakers13 and, increasingly, young speakers rather than focusing on a single, charismatic leader. Some respondents articulated an emotional attachment to Tommy Robinson – ‘I will march into hell for Tommy’ (Declan). However

subsequent condemnation certainly renewed interest in and sparked debate around the events of the Second World War some fifty years after its conclusion. In the twenty years following Chirac's landmark speech in 1995, two more presidents have come and gone; Nicolas Sarkozy (2007–12) and François Hollande (2012–17). This period saw a significant rise in popularity for far-right political parties, including the National Front. This is important to our story as they reintroduced conservative rhetoric into public discourse, echoing the sentiments of

process of globalisation from a non-elite social force. Rupert also discusses farright political groups. His association of this perspective with globalisation is actually highly original (although see Robertson & Khondker, 1998: 37). Moreover, in this case he demonstrates that the agency of far-right political actors is related to a specific meaning attached to globalisation, distinct from the liberal/neoliberal meaning; that is, the threat to the American way of life from a tyrannical world government. However, this perspective is still treated primarily as a response
