Parables of return

their interests were self-interested. 32 I thought of Dawson, tireless (to judge from his Scrapbook) in asserting his legitimate Scottish identity and descent, Dawson, twice if not thrice bankrupted, who, driven by spiritual necessity to occupy the communicational spaces between people found himself living in the borderlands between his own and Aboriginal kin, a lone voice in the spiritual and moral wilderness, railing ineffectually, like the eighteenth-century rhyme, against the squatting interest that had enclosed

could be in a pub with friends and simultaneously be backstage with his friends, frontstage with the bar staff and performing a different frontstage on social media with work colleagues; yet the fan never leaves the barstool. What constitutes backstage is constantly negotiated. As Giulianotti (1995) observed in Sweden, a public toilet was seen as backstage by one inebriated Scotland fan, while another argued that when they are away from Scotland, they are always representing Scotland, so even out of the public gaze, they should not be acting like England fans.

southern Europe and into other parts of the continent. It is now the most dominant form of fandom in Germany, Poland, Greece, Southern France and the Balkans, as well as Indonesia and North Africa. Elements of the ultras style have been adopted in Eastern and Central Europe, Spain, Turkey, Australia, the US, Japan, Scotland and Scandinavia. It is even starting to take root in England, where the 1970s saw the development of hooliganism, a very different approach to the ultras style that was developing in Italy. As a diverse and dynamic culture, theorising the ultras

Enigmas of communication

District, naturally takes a different view, and her overview of Dawson's life and achievement from the time of his arrival in Port Phillip (1842) until his death nearly sixty years later, is comprehensive, succinct and balanced. 51 If any reservation might be expressed, it is one analogous to Adorno's complaint that the past life of émigrés is always annulled: Dawson's Scottish ancestry and cultural formation go unmentioned as irrelevant to his advocacy of Aboriginal rights, his promotion of Aboriginal culture and, above

apolitical English style of fandom. DOIDGE__9780719027624_Print.indd 92 08/01/2020 10:19 Formation 93 It is in Scotland where the ultras style has had more traction in the UK. Scottish football has been through a period of sustained crisis in the twenty-first century, with the national team failing to qualify for a major tournament since 1998, and the leading club sides struggling to succeed in European competitions. This was compounded by the financial collapse of Rangers in 2012. Although attendances have fallen, fans adopting the ultras style have added some much

Migrant poetics

?’  11 Concealed inside this reference to one of Jowley's social performances is a play on the resemblance between the Scottish and Irish Gaelic prefix meaning ‘son of’ and a Kurnai word rendered as ‘Mack’ by the Lake Tyers missionary John Bulmer, whose meaning is vague but affirmative. 12 But concealed inside this is a reference to ‘Mr Mac’ of ‘Bushy Park’, who established his pastoral station inland from Lake Wellington in the wake of a campaign he orchestrated to rid the district of its

Broken relations, migrant destiny

and his daughter collected in south-Western Victoria, I wrapped his practical humanism in a cloud of poetic free association. To free him from this imaginative levy, I had at last to track him back to his family roots in Scotland, a return journey that repatriated him to the historical congregation forming my own past; then I could see that I walked in an older migrant's footsteps whose legacy was a transcript of encounters broken off rather than finished, a personal account of voices on the edge of echo eventually withdrawn into silence

Migrant prehistory

away in Victoria's Western District where the signature of successful invasion was a parklike prospect that potentially stretched in all directions uninterrupted to the horizon. Here, Berners's Folly had a local antecedent whose symbolic function was antithetical. In 1881 the Scottish colonist James Dawson had just published Australian Aborigines , a remarkable ethnography complete with lengthy vocabularies for the local Dhauwurd or Djagurd Wurrung (Gundidjmara) and Djab Wurrung languages and was ‘Guardian of five pure-blood Aborigines’, four men and a woman who

experience of devotion is markedly less embodied. In the setting of a Scottish hospital, Rice observes similar processes of disciplining through acoustic means. These in many ways revolve around creating ‘passive soundselves’ whose experience of sound reinforces the partition between mind and body that underpins the condition of the patient in biomedicine (Rice 2003 : 7). In mentioning Foucault’s paradigm of disciplining surveillance, the panopticon, Rice remarks that the disciplining power of sound does not so much operate as forms of acoustic surveillance as through
