documents can all tell a story about the region. This chapter seeks to highlight how these representations of the region –​ or the way in which circumpolar policy issues are framed by narrative and images –​are a manifestation of and serve to shape power relations in the region. Consider the selection of the three maps in Figures 4–​6 as an illustration of the various ways of representing the region. Figure 4 illustrates the bird migration routes connecting one nesting ground in Arctic Alaska with populations around the world. Like the ice-​locked whales discussed in

Uses and critiques of ‘civilisation’

and in its ‘War on Terror’. Third, the growth in complexity of migration strained mono-​cultural conceptions of nationality previously prevalent in nation-​states (Castles et  al., 2014). Policies of multiculturalism that have taken their place presuppose a mixed demography and intermingling religions and civilisations. Furthermore, they are premised on continuing diversification. Multiculturalism is fragile and periodically beset by xenophobic reaction. Plurality is undeniable, however, and it is evident not only within states, but in the international arena. The

The short history of Indian doctors in the Colonial Medical Service, British East Africa

Surveillance and transgender bodies in a post-9/ 11 era of neoliberalism

: In these contours of citizenship, belonging, and migration, how do … borders themselves deterritorialize and reterritorialize us? Certainly, the borders of gender have a lot in common with those of home: both police ‘spaces where those who do not ‘belong’ are separated from those who do.’ [Aizura] Bathrooms and border crossings are both equally invested

Fateful splitting in the Victorian insanity trial

to the critical element of voluntariness, again said to be missing. Moral insanity had made its conspicuous courtroom debut in medical testimony during the trial of Edward Oxford, prosecuted in 1840 for an unmotivated, unprovoked, indeed seemingly indifferent attack on Queen Victoria. As Oxford informed one of the medical witnesses who visited him prior to the trial, ‘Oh, I might as well shoot at her as any body else.’11 For present purposes, moral insanity marked the first true migration of insanity from neighbour’s fact to medical witness’s opinion.
