’ could be ‘both image and image maker’. 4 Because of this, research has concentrated predominantly on her performance Meat Joy (1964) and film Fuses (1964–67), while the rest of Schneemann’s oeuvre remains comparatively overlooked. 5 This chapter seeks to shift focus not only onto other works, but also onto Schneemann’s sustained investigation of group dynamics and communication patterns. By extending the Happening’s participatory action into Kinetic Theatre, Schneemann aimed to establish far deeper psychological connections among her performers than Kaprow or

wildlife (scientists wishing, for example, to investigate birds in flight so that man might imitate the process), world-wide and often separately conducted research finally transformed the cinematograph into the most potent means of mass communication in the first half of the twentieth century. In 1896, a third significant event took place when Guglielmo Marconi demonstrated the practicability of wireless telegraphy on Salisbury Plain. In one remarkable year, therefore, the principal means of mass communication – press, radio, and film – came into their own and the

Introduction Chapter 1 Introduction Chris R. Kyle and Jason Peacey I n 1986, Kevin Sharpe noted that ‘communication to the king and from the king was the binding thread of government’.1 It was an important corrective for historians focused solely on the machinations of Westminster politics or the daily operation of village communities. For Sharpe the early Stuart period saw a fragmenting of the lines of political communication between centre and locality as the monarch, aristocracy and Privy Council became increasingly isolated from the politics of the

The growth of the press and the enhanced communication links between metropole and periphery increased the potential accessibility of Indian news, while the reforms, crises and controversies

significance than swords or guns or bombs. But it cannot normally be divorced from military realities. ‘Victory generates its own support.’ But propaganda does not itself kill people. Indeed, it can be an alternative to killing, the triumph of communication over violence. It can, however, create myths – not just about why wars begin, are won or are lost, but even on rare occasions transform defeats into victories (Dunkirk, 1940, immediately springs to mind). But words alone rarely win wars. The munitions of the mind, like other conventional weapons, have admittedly become

communication as the paradigm of ethics. I do so because McCabe’s stress on the bodily character of communication challenges the presumption that communication can take place without people actually being present to one another. 9780719082542_C02.qxd 8/9/11 15:52 Page 53 Pentecost: learning the languages of peace 53 Moreover by focusing on McCabe’s account of language I hope to show how, at least for Christians, the assumption we must choose between membership in a particularistic community or some version of a more inclusive humanism is a false alternative.

As illustrated with the J18 protests, the incorporation by political activists of CMC within their repertoire will 2 Cyberprotest influence not only their own campaigning abilities, but the responses required by governments and security forces.

the extent to which Ireland became a jumping-off point for visiting new places in Europe and beyond. Arguably, the Irish migration experience introduced many Polish migrants to a new world of mobility and travel as they began to discover new countries and destinations. In addition to physical movement, new information and communication technologies were of particular importance in maintaining transnational contacts. Our participants used a wide range of new technologies including mobile phones and web-based applications such as Skype and social networking sites to

3396 Producing globalisation 29/9/09 11:16 Page 145 5 Facets of globalisation discourse The aim of this chapter is twofold. First it offers a comparison of the communication of globalisation discourse in Greece and Ireland. Thus it summarises, juxtaposes and compares the main findings of chapters 3 and 4. Second, it analyses how the differences between Greece and Ireland can be explained, and draws some general conclusions on the materialisation of globalisation discourse. Globalisation discourse in Greece and Ireland: a comparison The main political

Rather, even according to their own self-understanding, this is a clash between two alternative worlds which oppose each other in a way that cannot be understood as the competition of different methods, theories or paradigms.
