Then, if it seems a good thing that the rest should

These discussions led to the joint preparation of a

Foe, facilitator, friend or forsaken?
Bryony Onciul

Community engagement, Indigenous heritage and the complex figure of the curator: foe, facilitator, friend or forsaken? Bryony Onciul Current critical issues, such as decolonisation, truth and reconciliation, span the interconnected networks of peoples, places, practices and artefacts which draw museums and their curators into complex and ever-changing spheres of engagement in today’s globalised world. While curation is a recognised and respected profession, the proliferation of community engagement since the 1980s has brought increased awareness of the importance

169 8 Japan in engagement and the discourses of civilisation If civilisational analysis is lacking with respect to Latin America, it has been far from inattentive when it comes to Japan. In previous chapters, Japan serves as an illustration of theoretical engagements with civilisational analysis, as well as illustrating different points of my own argument. The frequent choice of Japan is no coincidence: it has been a focal point of investigation for comparativists in the humanities, the social sciences and political economy with an interest in civilisations

). They relied on grassroots community actors, classic figures of humanitarian work or development ( Olivier de Sardan, 2005 ): chiefs, women, elders and youths seen as legitimate actors, able to both represent and influence the ‘community’ – that is, to be intermediaries of community engagement between the intervention and local populations. This article shows how both the legitimacy of these actors embodying the response and eventually the intervention itself was contested

possibility of arrival, of undocumented residents with conditional provisions that impact these residents’ opportunities for economic participation (Visser, 2017 ). LRs encompass a range of policy types including local engagement with federal immigration laws, employment verification laws, anti-solicitation ordinances, regulations about housing, and language access laws. LRs might be inclusive, favourable to the expanded participation of undocumented residents, or unfavourable, excluding undocumented residents from economic life through measures that also impact on their

5 New rules of engagement between Ankara and Moscow in the East As stated in the previous chapter, after the final defeat of the Ottoman Empire in October 1918, the Turkish nationalists proceeded to establish their authority in 1919 and determined the main goals of the nationalist movement in the National Pact of April 1920. In this document, the eastern provinces of Elviye-­i Selase (Kars, Ardahan and Batum) were accepted as an integral part of the Turkish state. While this goal was inherited from the previous CUP policies, a radical break with these policies

Emotional Contagion Responses to Narrative Fiction Film
Amy Coplan

In this paper, I examine the role of emotional contagion in our affective engagement with narrative fiction film, focusing in particular on how spectator responses based on emotional contagion differ from those based on more sophisticated emotional processes. I begin by explaining emotional contagion and the processes involved in it. Next, I consider how film elicits emotional contagion. I then argue that emotional contagion responses are unique and should be clearly distinguished from responses based on other emotional processes, such as empathy. Finally, I explain why contagion responses are a significant feature of spectators engagement with narrative fiction film.

-and-rescue missions. But it is citizen movements that have been at the forefront of the emergency response. Similarly inspired by cosmopolitan ideals, these groups tend to use more political language than conventional NGOs, presenting their relief activities as a form of direct resistance to nationalist politics and xenophobia. As liberal humanitarianism is challenged in its European heartland, they are developing – through practice – a new model of humanitarian engagement. SOS MEDITERRANEE is an ad hoc citizen initiative founded in 2015 to prevent the death of

Theatre and the politics of engagement
Author: Simon Parry

This book is about science in theatre and performance. It explores how theatre and performance engage with emerging scientific themes from artificial intelligence to genetics and climate change. The book covers a wide range of performance forms from the spectacle of the Paralympics Opening Ceremony to Broadway musicals, from experimental contemporary performance and opera to educational theatre, Somali poetic drama and grime videos. It features work by pioneering companies including Gob Squad, Headlong Theatre and Theatre of Debate as well as offering fresh analysis of global blockbusters such as Wicked and Urinetown. The book offers detailed description and analysis of theatre and performance practices as well as broader commentary on the politics of theatre as public engagement with science. It documents important examples of collaborative practice with extended discussion of the Theatre of Debate process developed by Y Touring theatre company, exploration of bilingual theatre-making in East London and an account of how grime MCs and dermatologists ended up making a film together in Birmingham. The interdisciplinary approach draws on contemporary research in theatre and performance studies in combination with key ideas from science studies. It shows how theatre can offer important perspectives on what the philosopher of science Isabelle Stengers has called ‘cosmopolitics’. The book argues that theatre can flatten knowledge hierarchies and hold together different ways of knowing.
