ways that policy speeches or press accounts cannot convey. Interactions with private individuals can be potent tools, a window into a society, an up-close personal exchange of ideas that can cut through officially disseminated information. The PUC tours were thus sterling examples of the merits of sports exchanges as elements of diplomacy, even though they were not government-sponsored or even public–private partnerships. Rather, Feinberg’s organisation proved the power of the individual, what Giles Scott-Smith calls the ‘new diplomacy’, in which private citizens can

In principle, the capital market can be divided into two segments: the primary market, where new capital is raised, and the secondary market, where existing securities are sold and bought. Again, this distinction is blurred since new capital can be raised via a stock exchange and existing securities sold on the same market. Furthermore, the

Husserl’s instigation, in Paris in 1935. They began a correspondence in 1939 which continued until Schutz’s death. The text of this correspondence will be used to contextualize the publications of both men in the period from 1940 to 1960, but its formal significance needs to be highlighted. The first point to emphasize is that the correspondence was conducted in German throughout the period. The second point is that the exchange contains very little information about the attitudes and feelings of the correspondents in relation to American society and politics. They both

Off in the sense that individual characters’ voices, perspectives and spoken expressions are continuously analysed, judged and moved between. The flexibility and heteroglossic nature of socially typifying language and its appropriateness (or not) in the corporate world is highlighted in 1:1 in an exchange between the boss of the textile company, Mack, and his personal assistant, Trudy (Lesley Sharpe). In a glass-fronted office positioned above the factory floor, Mack and Trudy have the following exchange: Mack: Tell him he’s a tight-fisted prick and tell him, from

Details crowd in in the order of the moment, on the fly, there is a sense of urgency, of the necessity to get things done – ‘do answer this soon – need all assistance I can get to finish things up with any show of adequacy’.3 What follows through 1953 is an exchange of

Despite growing bodies of work on imperial networks, postcolonial and transnational exchange, and the social construction of scientific knowledge, this is something that imperial historians, science studies scholars and university historians alike have long neglected. 22 Yet institutions and organisations were chief among the forces that

Leverage and deconstruction
Author: Simon Wortham

This book explores key critical debates in the humanities in recent times in the context of the legitimation crisis widely felt to be facing academic institutions, using Derrida's idea of leverage in the university. In particular, it concerns an account for the malaise in the university by linking critical developments, discourses and debates in the modern humanities to a problem of the institution itself. The book finds within these discourses and debates the very dimensions of the institution's predicament: economic, political, ideological, but also, inseparably, intellectual. It looks at some of the recurring themes arising in the early key texts of new historicism and cultural materialism. The book also argues that these approaches in a number of ways orient their critical strategies according to certain kinds of logics and structures of reflection. It instances disorientation and leverage in the university by exploring the problematic doubleness of economics as indeterminately both inside and outside contemporary cultural theory. The book also argues that the interdisciplinary approach of cultural analysis has a certain amount of difficulty positioning economics as either simply an outside or an inside. The orientation and leverage within the university apparently offered by the development of cultural studies and by certain forms of interdisciplinarity comes at the cost of an irresolvable disorientation between the object and the activity of criticism.

exchanged between one theatre and the next. In this context, eighteenth-century British military personnel were among the most travelled of the British Empire. As a result, these individuals collectively generated and mobilised knowledge on a vast scale. In 2004, Natasha Glaisyer argued that if empire could be ‘thought of as a set of networks of exchange then … the scientific, cultural, social, political, and intellectual histories of empire’ were inextricably linked. 1 It is curious that the military dimension is rarely, if ever, considered.

– to everybody – to you.’11 Notably for Hervey it is his wife’s refusal to enter into dialogue, her disavowal of language, that drives him from his house. Of course it is the recognition that words mean something ‘to everybody’ that identifies language as a process of exchange in which access to some fundamental meaning finds itself replaced by a dialogic model in which the very transmittability of language guarantees its dislocation from the individual instance. This determination of narrative as a dialogic act is central to the Marlow texts which place, in both their
