Postcolonial governance and the policing of family
Author: Joe Turner

Bordering intimacy is a study of how borders and dominant forms of intimacy, such as family, are central to the governance of postcolonial states such as Britain. The book explores the connected history between contemporary border regimes and the policing of family with the role of borders under European and British empires. Building upon postcolonial, decolonial and black feminist theory, the investigation centres on how colonial bordering is remade in contemporary Britain through appeals to protect, sustain and make family life. Not only was family central to the making of colonial racism but claims to family continue to remake, shore up but also hide the organisation of racialised violence in liberal states. Drawing on historical investigations, the book investigates the continuity of colonial rule in numerous areas of contemporary government – family visa regimes, the policing of sham marriages, counterterror strategies, deprivation of citizenship, policing tactics, integration policy. In doing this, the book re-theorises how we think of the connection between liberal government, race, family, borders and empire. In using Britain as a case, this opens up further insights into the international/global circulations of liberal empire and its relationship to violence.

happiness of coming home again, it seemed to me, my friends, that there was nothing else I wanted in the whole world! At least, there was just one thing: I had an urgent, tireless, burning desire to work for the good of my native town and its people. For me, Manchester was always ‘home’. I am fortunate that I came back to a place where I still have close family members, old friends as well as new ones. During the years after I left, in 1965, I came home frequently – during my time at university in Birmingham, the dance study/secretarial period in London, and then more

, indeed, the national trauma. Today, movement means travel or working abroad or ‘coming home’. The Irish media portray Ireland’s citizens as the ‘young Europeans’, computer literate, confident, citizens of the world. Migration, then, cannot have a simple meaning as a symptom of globalisation. It can signify expulsion or, as in Ireland today, success. The diaspora was once an integral element of Irish identity. Today, there is a move to ‘bring it home’ but home is not what it used to be. The Ireland of today has seen the full effect of the deterritorialisation of culture

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?

Spiritualism and the Atlantic divide

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
