Something rich and strange

Manchester: Something rich and strange challenges us to see the quintessential post-industrial city in new ways. Bringing together twenty-three diverse writers and a wide range of photographs of Greater Manchester, it argues that how we see the city can have a powerful effect on its future – an urgent question given how quickly the urban core is being transformed. The book uses sixty different words to speak about the diversity of what we think of as Manchester – whether the chimneys of its old mills, the cobbles mostly hidden under the tarmac, the passages between terraces, or the everyday act of washing clothes in a laundrette. Unashamedly down to earth in its focus, this book makes the case for a renewed imaginative relationship that recognises and champions the fact that we’re all active in the making and unmaking of urban spaces.

2000b; Anon 2000c; Anon 2000d). The Act enabled police to gain easy access to all ISP records. Of the ISPs sympathetic to environmental activism, GreenNet spoke out against the Act and worked to try either to table amendments to the Bill or to get it withdrawn in its entirety (Anon 2000e). Many environmental critics also included advice on how to avoid the repercussions of the RIP Act.5 There has been a similar response to the Prevention of Terrorism Act, which although not specifically related to CMC could still have a significant impact upon the environmentalists

‘anticipatory action’ arising from the increasing importance of new technologies in social and political life (Anderson, 2010). In the context of urban informatics, the formalisation and legitimation of anticipatory action as response to threats of terrorism, biosecurity and ecological disaster (Anderson, 2010) is routinely expressed in the field’s selfproclaimed potential to deliver sustainable, efficient and resilient cities. These tendencies fundamentally reshape originally linear temporalities by bringing – in particular ways – the future into the present; rewriting, in

institutional basis. In doing so, Paglen combines forensic expertise with an awareness of both pedagogical and performative effects of cultural expressions, both conveying knowledge and enabling concrete acts of resistance. In her contribution, Chiara Brambilla examines the spectacularisation of Mediterranean borderscapes evident in the dramatic staging of refugee crises and migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, but also in the discursive framing of terrorism, migration pressures and religious conflict. According to Brambilla, the border spectacle is

Young people, subjectivity and revolutionary border imaginations in the Mediterranean borderscape

Moving beyond the spectacularisation of Mediterranean borders … The spectacularisation of Mediterranean borders assumes a crucial, often disquieting role in the dramatic staging of refugee crises and migrant deaths in the Mediterranean, and also in the discursive framing of terrorism, migration pressures and religious conflict. Focusing on the spectacularisation process enables a critical investigation of the complex relationship between border regimes and regimes of in/visibility. Through spectacularisation, the complexity

/7 floodlighting brightly illuminating the night skies. Through all of this, the government steadfastly refused to release details of an Environmental Impact Assessment of the site, with the Environment Agency responding curtly to FOI requests by stating that disclosure of details relating to the site was ‘capable of adversely affecting public safety’ – presumably because of concerns relating to people trafficking or terrorism. 52 This pattern of poor government

Others voiced the threat of terrorism, stressing that local people used to keep their doors unlocked but would not do so any more. 46 Added to this were concerns about COVID-19, and the idea that new arrivals would transmit coronavirus to one another and to the wider community. When news of the Kent COVID-19 variant emerged in

watchful gaze over the horizon alludes to the threat of rising sea levels for populations living by the sea, and fact that while the government has spent untold millions on border infrastructure, anti-terrorism measures and migration control, its track record on tackling climate change remains desultory. As an example of environmental public art, The Folkestone Mermaid is a layered and subtle articulation of the relationship between culture and nature. In this respect, the gaze of the mermaid is important as it draws our attention to the shifting
