The very structure of Losey’s cinematic language, as well as his narrative style and content, are thus directly related to the artist’s attempt to create a new, post-Cold War vision for radicalism and social change, as well as a personal atonement for the mistakes and misjudgements produced by the Old Left’s dogmatic loyalty to an inhuman Stalinism. How do we theorize and

that marginality – rarely chosen – can foster creative freedom. People on the margins, out of the frame of things and with relatively little to lose in the event of social change, can have less to lose and more to gain from radical and disruptive acts and ideas. For bell hooks, the social and spatial margin is an ambivalent place which can be reclaimed – actively chosen – ‘as a site of radical openness’. 14 Victor Turner argued that in places removed from the centres of everyday life – the spatial and temporal edges

The evolutionary twists and turns, from early hand-cranked camera equipment and portable screen to current visualisation processes are a remarkable expression of

Much of the critical debate about Room at the Top was to centre on Joe Lampton – what drives him, what he represents. What does motivate Joe Lampton? One of the most perceptive early critics of the film, Alexander Walker, has identified his motivation

essays. I will try to do so wherever possible in the discussion that follows. However, the bulk of my response will be devoted to three core issues that I believe are important to address. For the sake of analytical clarity and succinctness, I will label these as: 1) shapeshifting migration control and illiberal leeway; 2) legal institutions, social change, and constraints on governmental power; and 3) the emancipatory power of ideas and political agency.

Young people’s experiences of SfD

This section explores how young people have been affected by their involvement in these activities. As debates in the literature about the ‘impacts’ of SfD tend to focus on potential ‘social change’ outcomes (Darnell and Hayhurst, 2011 ), relatively little is known about the role that simply taking part in

The expansion of the highway accelerated social change in Eastern Panama, encouraging modernisation (Velásquez Runk 58 58 Exoticisation undressed 2015), the circulation of consumer products, but also easily accessible markets for Emberá plantains and lumber (Herlihy 1986: 153–4; Wali 1989: 49–51, 107; Colin 2010: 161).
