Oral history and institutional photographs
Jesse Adams Stein

2 The visual at work: oral history and institutional photographs All these pictures would have been posed for. Ha! You know, in reality, it wasn’t as orderly as that!1 – Former NSW Government Printer Don West Oral history can serve a vital role when interweaving labour history with design and material culture. The way that printers speak, for example, is often rich in visual and material detail and peppered with industry slang. In the interviews undertaken for Hot Metal, the conversations revealed that retired printers typically retain an exceptionally thorough

Men at work 3 The Dustbinmen (1969–70), The Knowledge (1979) and London’s Burning (1986) Each of The Dustbinmen, The Knowledge and London’s Burning has an ensemble format in which we witness relationships between working men – and sometimes women. Dramatic tension is derived from the hierarchy within which the men work. The plot arises in The Dustbinmen and London’s Burning from the nature of the job, which involves interaction with the community at large. While rubbish-collection makes for comedy, plots about firefighting are more generically mixed and tend to

The 2008 Italy–Libya Friendship Treaty and thereassembling of Fortress Europe
Chiara De Cesari

3 Memory as border work: the 2008 Italy–Libya Friendship Treaty and the reassembling of Fortress Europe Chiara De Cesari A border is made real through imagination. (Van Houtum 2012: 412) In this chapter, I examine one peculiar border zone, namely the Mediterranean Sea – and more precisely that stretch of sea extending between Italy and Libya – in order to explore how memory-making contributes to its re-bordering. The cemetery of an astonishing and growing number of migrants and asylum seekers, this stretch of sea has become a symbol of Fortress Europe and of

240 The emergence of footballing cultures 11 School, work and leisure By 1919 the Manchester region housed multiple leagues and competitions for all ages and there were tournaments for women, developed during the war, with several factory teams such as those representing female railway workers, ironfounders and area munitions works.1 There was a Manchester Ladies Football League which also played representative games and had sought affiliation to the FA. Women’s football was popular even though the footballing authorities were not supportive, and teams such

, however, acknowledged that within these stable human universals there is massive scope for variation that nevertheless does not alter the overall framework. Eustace is more sensitive to categorical differences, although she does not functionally employ such differences in her historical work. What she does do, and this will be explored in greater depth later, is address the significant differences in the experience of emotions that, their degrees of distinction notwithstanding, have lived under single and stable emotional labels: love, anger, sympathy, grief

the economic and social sphere’. It would seek to set the main directions for accelerating economic growth and social development. He emphasised that it was ‘crucial to continue our work to reach the objectives set out in the May 2012 Presidential Edicts’. The council’s job was to ‘set tasks, identify solutions and oversee project implementation’. 16 Perhaps the most important of these, however, is the All-Russian Popular Front (ONF). Established in May 2011 as a civil volunteer organisation, the ONF was intended to build a link between the authorities and society

1 Work for women? Challenges to the ­gendering of routine work in the LCC and the Civil Service I At any moment of time there is strong resistance to allowing women into any occupation which they have not already entered. Dame Anne Loughlin, Dr Janet Vaughan and Miss L.  F. Nettlefold, ‘Memorandum of Dissent’, Report of the Royal Commission on Equal Pay (London: HMSO, 1946), p.191 t is impossible to understand women’s public service employment in the early twentieth century without examining first the work that they were permitted to do as well as the work

2 Therapeutic work and mental illness in America, c. 1830–1970 Ben Harris This chapter looks at patient labour in the United States from the birth of the asylum to the start of its demise in the 1960s. The focus is on the Northeastern states, where separate psychiatric hospitals originated in the 1840s and multiplied over the next half century. The story told here comes from histories of individual hospitals and histories of psychiatry, supplemented by the medical and popular literature on mental illness, and accounts written by former patients. These show

9 Work and occupation in Romanian psychiatry, c. 1838–1945 Valentin-Veron Toma Along with other types of occupation, such as reading, writing and sporting activities, work has been used as a form of therapy in Romanian psychiatry from the mid-nineteenth century. For example, the first workshops for mental patients were created at the Mărcuța asylum in Bucharest in 1855, just seventeen years after the institutionalisation of psychiatry in the Romanian principalities. Work and other occupations were considered appropriate mainly in the treatment of long

need to be ‘saved’ from the racialised and damaging ‘residuum’. Similarly, Susan Parnell has shown how the 1930s depression led to slum clearances in Johannesburg and paved the way for residential segregation. 2 Bogumil Jewsiewicki’s work has demonstrated that economic upheaval provided an opportunity for employers to restructure the costly racialised workforce in Katanga as three-quarters of whites were laid off in the first few years of the 1930s and unemployed whites were repatriated to Europe. 3 By contrast, Neil Roos has explored how the South African state
