Britain and France. Here, according to a writer who interviewed him some years later about his exploits, he ‘gravitated by a process of natural law to the centre of the danger zone’.6 His nationality probably helped him secure a job as assistant to an Irishman named Lillie, who was editor of the Siam Free Press, and also local correspondent of the New York Herald. Within a month, unexpected events propelled his career upwards. Lillie was expelled from Siam for publishing articles which exacerbated the tensions between the King of Siam and France, and McCullagh

This reluctance, this restless, irritable inability to commit to any one discernable position or to follow any singular influence is perhaps at the heart of Leconte’s diversity as a filmmaker. We have seen that this diversity is part of what irritates

family for migrants living in Ireland and for migrants from Ireland living elsewhere, and shows the ways in which family changes across space and time. The final section of the chapter is concerned with community. In migration studies, the term community often refers to migrants with a shared nationality, such as the Irish community in Australia or the Polish community in Ireland. This section shows the difficulties with this approach to community, and the alternative – and at times contradictory – ways in which migrants define the term. Rather than assuming that

About 90 per cent of the inmates were of Jewish origin, with an average age of 28.11 Typhus and starvation were endemic, as was TB, dysentery and fever.12 Many had gastro-intestinal infections, erysipelas and scurvy. Camp II comprised a series of brick buildings and houses with approximately 27,000 inhabitants of a variety of nationalities. Enteric, TB and erysipelas were present, but no typhus and they appeared better fed.13 Between 1 to 31 March, 17,000 persons died in Belsen. From 1 to 15 April, the day of liberation, a further 18,000 died

the Geneva Convention on refugees because of the emerging types of migrants and refugees do not fit with the categories set out in the Convention.1 The Albanian immigrants were not the largest group reaching the  Mediterranean countries from eastern Europe. Immigrants of various nationalities started moving soon after, legally or illegally, towards the countries of southern Europe. These were the main, silent actors in the  Mediterranean migration scene around the year 2000. They did not follow the sea routes and so did not experience the opportunities and risks of

The treaty port social order was a complex beast, structured around a series of overlapping hierarchies based not just on race but also on nationality, gender and class.

Doing ethnography and thinking comparatively

As we have seen, comparison of banks (BoS, Capital, Halifax) and of nationalities (Scots and English) was a key and almost unavoidable means of indigenous sense-making in the context of merger. I have tried to convey that this was sometimes done sharply, sometimes ambivalently and often somewhere in between. However, I have tended to focus on that portion of the discourse that was emphasising differences, because I think this was being conditioned by, and serving

Both sisters wrote poetry and plays that articulated their individual attitudes to Irish nationality and their shared battle for sexual equality. The suffrage meeting in Drumcliffe gives a foretaste of the poetics that Constance and Eva developed over the following three decades. The meeting hall was ‘packed to the doors’ with an audience that consisted primarily of men – most of whom had come to object to women’s right to vote. However, the suffragists had prepared to

mask the extent to which people both move to and leave Ireland each year. For example, during the period from 1986–91, the last sustained period of net emigration, close to 135,000 people migrated to Ireland. In the period from 2002–06, when the percentage of people living in Ireland with a nationality other than Irish rose from 7.1 per cent to 11.2 per cent (from around 270,000 to 460,000), over 120,000 people migrated from Ireland. However, despite the constant flows and counterflows, academic studies tend to focus on just one direction of movement, reflecting
