Indigenous histories, settler colonies and Queen Victoria

dialogues with each other, Queen Victoria was embroidered into far-reaching debates and discourses on such crucial matters as rights and responsibilities, community and belonging, citizenship and non-citizenship, race and difference, and authority, sovereignty, and destiny. We have noted the ways Queen Victoria became associated with protection, charity, and benevolence, but as monarch she could just as

mentioned above, British law did not allow for the forcible removal of any certified mental patient, regardless of race, culture or nationality, from one place within the Empire to another. In order to repatriate a non-native mental patient, the patient had first to be decertified, legally restoring all the rights and responsibilities of a normal, healthy individual. Patients then had to undergo travel to

Temperance Union, formed from an alliance of American and British temperance activists, heirs to an evangelical humanitarian tradition. The World’s WCTU sustained an energetic interventionist agenda that its ‘missionaries’ took across the world, combining temperance with an advocacy of political rights for their sex: 27 voting in elections, even standing for political office, were both rights and

The Dunsoete Agreement and daily life in the Welsh borderlands

can glimpse through the Dunsæte Agreement is, of course, not a multicultural utopia – cattle theft appears rampant, there is distrust between neighbours, and provisions for the amount of wergild due ‘Gif Wealh Engliscne man ofslea’ (if a Welshman were to slay an Englishman) or vice versa hint at violence far darker than cattle rustling.14 Yet at the same time, the Dunsæte Agreement reveals a community that worked together to solve its problems, had a system of legal rights and responsibilities for all its members, and possessed a functional level of both linguistic

: ‘the city that becomes visible is a city that fits in with existing projects and strategies’ (Flyverbom and Madsen 2016: 149). The datafied ‘smart city’ might, as Gabrys (2016) conceives of it, be a Foucauldian project where citizenship ceases to be connected with the exercise of rights and responsibilities and begins to be related to the capacity for citizens to act as sensors, absorbing and presenting computational information. Gabrys writes, ‘participation involves computational responsiveness and is coextensive with actions of monitoring and managing one

predominantly female and that she should, therefore, be made into a female, he, the doctor, would still have been the one in charge of the decision. He would still have been able to claim the competence to decide. And that would have been much less provocative to his colleagues. This difference – the difference between offering the hermaphrodite a choice between two medical options and the medical pondering of psychological and physical factors – is the crucial point where the rights and responsibilities of a sovereign subject are exchanged for a medico-psychological interest

Hague, the Conservatives held that ‘new members should have the right to accept some EU policies on a selective basis in perpetuity and . . . existing Member States too should be free to develop a mix and match approach’.13 The new policy had three main elements. Firstly, a Conservative government would press for a new Treaty provision on flexibility. All Member States would have to accept the ‘rights and responsibilities of the single market’ and the ‘core elements of an open, free-trading and competitive Europe’. But, outside the core areas, a new Treaty provision

In 2004 the Civil Partnership Act was passed by Parliament, which gave same-sex couples the same rights and responsibilities as in a civil marriage.6 The NILT survey has asked a variety of questions

world. Conclusions Societal institutionalist researchers act under an assumption – whether explicit or otherwise – that economic activity is always embedded in something (inter alia, a system of property rights, rules about corporate governance and financing, rules Challenges to societal effects in global competition 65 and less formal norms about the appropriate patterns of interaction between firms, social understandings about the rights and responsibilities of workers and so on). It is important to be clear that this is ultimately an ontological position. In
