the Middlesex sessions disclose numerous cases. The clerk of Knightsbridge Chapel, who, at the Old Bailey in 1692, had to prove one Daniel Conduit’s former marriage, said, ‘that it was usual for people to come there and personate others, and to make sham marriages’.52 Social factors also have to be taken into consideration. People of all social ranks, especially in sixteenth-century England, were highly mobile, ‘both socially and geographically’.53 Work might keep husbands temporarily away; soldiers might be absent for months or years without any guarantee of coming

more suited to what I wanted to do. I began with a foundation course in the social sciences – and immediately it was like coming home intellectually. This was where I had wanted to be. The teaching of Stuart Hall in particular was an absolute inspiration. Encountering Marxism for the first time was extraordinary: why had I not come across this before?

When I asked why, they told me that the news had just come down from the RIA that a large group (approximately forty-five) was being moved out of the centre the following day to various other centres and that there were always problems that some did not want to leave. Many of those being moved had school-aged children and I wondered how the children would react coming home in their 3995 Migrations.qxd:text I DENTITY 5/8/13 11:39 Page 175 AND PLACE IN ASYLUM SEEKER CENTRES 175 school uniforms and with their school books in tow only to

. “And I’m from Scranton, Pennsylvania!” Biden went on to announce the campaign’s commitment of “an inordinate amount of resources, hundreds of permanent staff, significant office openings” in the state, seemingly linking these developments to his candidacy. Pennsylvanians, he noted immediately afterward, would also see a great deal of him during the campaign “because I’m coming home.”15 The appeal to state voters was not subtle; in fact, references to Biden’s roots were so heavy-handed that they became something of a running joke among campaign observers.

soldier speaking to himself and mouthing patriotic platitudes, but as his advice to a mother, friend, wife, about ways to help them remember the individual who may not be coming home: If I should die, think only this of me: That there’s some corner of a foreign field That is forever England.6 The poem is more about consoling the soon-to-be-bereaved than it is about delivering the poet’s own elegy. In Germany, too, the problem of finding fitting ways to remember began early. In October 1914 Peter Kollwitz, son of the Expressionist artist Käthe Kollwitz and her husband

-language immigrants, the children began to teach the parent. And yes I’d been a very strong parental influence, you know, it wasn’t like I’m a weak person, but if we went to the city they would take me on the trams and show me how to do everything, because they were jumping on and off trams and they were just … off and running and doing things that I wasn’t doing. I was jumping in the car in the morning, and going to work, coming home at night, making the dinner, feeling horrible, go to bed, crying all night, getting up, doing it all again the next day.

would be crossing the Atlantic and coming home. In her account of writing that confirmatory letter she invokes destiny and the intervention of the spirit world – two common devices of spiritualists – for a reply that seemed to be written without her volition. She intended to write that she would be back in England in a month’s time, yet instead she finds herself writing something that would change her life forever. She describes what happens in the following vivid terms: In place of making this announcement, however, I deliberately wrote, and that whilst in the full

She used the example of afternoon tea invitations which were not reciprocated by her children’s friends, because ‘children from big Asian families, who obviously live a different life, it’s difficult, coming home for tea, it’s difficult because these children cannot’ and how vegetarian food had to be provided ‘because of halal meats’.
