being repeated or were not inclusive of those without CMC access. For GSN, having an email list had eased many of their previous communication difficulties, but it now meant that ‘sometimes there’s a problem with discussions moving on, leaving certain people behind without them being involved in the formulation of certain ideas and plans’ (Tristram, GSN). However, overall, ‘It’s still more accessible than anything we could have created any other way’ (Dave Morris, McSpotlight). Thus even those who accepted that access was limited argued that this should not detract

disciplinary effects. Minujín’s engagement with communication resulted from her obsession with sociability. Communication was primarily a means to an end: obtaining understanding of, and leverage within, social groupings and hierarchies. Minujín’s peripatetic movement between Latin America, Europe and the USA during the 1960s and 1970s partly explains why, despite having achieved celebrity status in Argentina (where, as Inés Katzenstein observes, she is ‘practically a TV star’) her work has only gradually been integrated into wider histories of Pop art and performance. 3

of ‘public’ and ‘popular’ carries implications for structure, process and value. The flows and the spaces of the dominant ‘popular’, economic and normative, frequently shape the contexts in which versions of the ‘public’ as a communicational principle with entailments for knowledge production, circulation and exchange are now defined and operated. They regulate the terms of public communication as an experience and have a bearing on the particular combinations of the highlighted, the visible, the marginalised and the concealed out of which a social optics is

Analysing oratory in Labour politics

of interpretations that aims to better understand the political and intellectual significance of socialism, and with it the growth of the British Labour Party. These historical studies tend to revolve their interest around trade unionism, ideological theory, and issues such as the growth and disintegration of the Independent Labour Party. Our focus, however, is on the distinctive contribution of leading orators to such debates. Consequently the focus of this volume is on the style of communication of leading Labour figures, namely Aneurin Bevan, Hugh Gaitskell

particularities of communication, acknowledged in Lebel’s own declaration that each performance enlivened a ‘network of meanings linked to a precise psychological and social context’, continued to mark artistic developments that extended the form’s insights in new ways. 3 One such work was an action created by Lea Lublin at the 1968 Salon de Mai, as Lebel joined the protesting crowds on the Paris streets. Lublin’s intervention entailed displaying herself with her baby son in front of the picture she had submitted to the exhibition. The artist did not conceptualise this as a

Improvements in the course of the 1830s made shipowners ready to risk navigating further from coasts and channels. Merchants, too, wanted better communication, to open new trading areas or to reach existing ones more rapidly. Technology and commerce went together. The only obstacle was money: no

participate in an interactive debate (Kellner 1998; Walch 1999). As the nature of protest diversifies to include CMC, and as activists network with each other through new forms of communication, the notion of an environmental movement may also change. Furthermore, if relationships could be built between a greater number of individuals and groups through CMC, then there is a possibility that more democratic models could be organised so as to facilitate the environmentalists’ goal of participatory democracy. All of these possibilities, however, are reliant upon CMC enabling

scientists and scientific institutions to perform publicly and have supported the emergence of sets of practices known under various terms, including: public engagement with science, science communication, science outreach, citizen science and public involvement with research. The Royal Society’s (1985) report, known as the Bodmer Report, articulated discourse and promoted practices associated with public understanding of science. It promoted increased and improved science communication by scientists as well as advocating changes in science education and science coverage

peace talks descended into full-scale violence. An outline of cartoon research was also necessary to distinguish it from other media analyses’ traditional use of political communications to study elite opinion. Cartoon analysis is the study of a non-elite communication. It is premised on the idea that audiences inadvertently shape the media they consume by rewarding producers who create content that

sparing in his efforts to evoke atmosphere or create mood, and little attempt is made to connect us with characters on an emotional level. His aim is to establish a clear pattern of communication with the spectator, and therefore, at a certain level of spectatorship, to provide security. The transparency of his filming style is crucial in creating an effect of realism to anchor the subversive quality of his idiosyncratic narrative
