eliminate ‘all fear of Home Rule’.8 The outlook of the nascent Labour Party was shaped by a modern British radical tradition, one that at various points, to varying degrees and for a range of reasons had sought to find common ground with Irish nationalism on a ‘justice’ agenda since the late eighteenth century. By the early years of the twentieth century, then, the party was, naturally enough, engaged in a ‘conversation’ with nationalist Ireland. From the time of the Gladstonian land settlement, Davitt had been openly arguing for an alliance between the democratic masses

Christabel, The Eve of St Agnes and Lamia
Robert Miles

The Eve of St Agnes and Lamia (1820) 19 establish a polemical conversation with Christabel (1816) and the Gothic, a conversation in which the Gothic emerges as a language of subjective representation, for that nexus of tropes that includes the self, the body, boundaries, invasion, transgression, repression and desire. If ‘Gothic’ now seems overly elastic as a descriptive term it is because

Libraries, friends and conversation
Justin Champion

Libraries, friends and conversation 1 . ‘The traffic of books’: libraries, friends and conversation J Toland read a great deal. The scholarly apparatus to his written work is ample evidence of this. A more intimate view of his own library survives in the manuscript fragments recording the piles of books left at his death in the room he rented in Putney. Gathered on top of chairs, a chest of drawers and on the floor was Toland’s working library of some one hundred and fifty volumes.1 The collection was eclectic. It contained a number of foreign language works

eye-rolling and hallway conversations about strident frustrated females – I wasn’t yet brave enough for that. (Former sessional instructor) That commitment to, and relationship with Canada’s First Peoples1 doesn’t end when students graduate. Make it concrete – put something in the [University] Strategic Plan that is a specific commitment regarding hiring, retention, and promotion of Canada’s First Peoples as professional employees. (Technical support staff member) They never did come back to see if the building was being cleaned to their standards, which in fact

The appeal is, I’m sure, connected with the fact that the Feast of

conversation throughout the week, not just on a matchday (Nowell-Smith, 1979: Stone, 2007). Conversations will take place in pubs, bars, at work and on social media. All of this maintains the intensity of interaction that can be sustained until the next match. The ultras style of fandom can intensify this passion as members of the group will discuss, plan and produce the key parts of the performance: choreographies, chants and banners. Regular interaction helps engender a sense of belonging to a wider community. In his analysis of the Aboriginal corroberee rituals, Durkheim

Conversations about the past in Restoration and eighteenth-century England
Daniel Woolf

6 Chapter 4 The spoken word Speaking of history Speaking of history: conversations about the past in Restoration and eighteenth-century England Daniel Woolf F or the past two or three centuries we have become rather used to thinking of history as something found in books. Just as we ourselves are trained to read and criticize documents, and to take these as the basis of all historical knowledge, so we tell our students which books to go off and read, what ‘authorities’ to rely on, which journals to consult, and so on. The advent of the Internet has changed

Dialogue as normative grounds and object of critique

these themes have played out in the application of Habermasian theory to IR. Exploring the conversation between Habermas and those who have adopted and critiqued his theoretical position within IR serves to frame the wider debates concerning Habermas’s project and sets out a number of key concerns with his approach. Such concerns elucidate why communicative ethics as it is

Global conversations on refuge
Silvia Pasquetti and Romola Sanyal

The impetus for this volume came from conversations that we shared about our work in the Middle East, in Europe, and in South Asia, and across disciplinary divides. We came from backgrounds in architecture, planning, and geography, on the one hand, and urban ethnography and political sociology, on the other, and have utilized different theoretical and methodological lenses to study questions of governance, agency, and politics. Our conversations converged on the need for more productive, nuanced, and contextualized ways of “doing refugee

(1819) and Elizabeth and Sarah Fitton’s Conversations on Botany (1817), for example – became increasingly didactic. The young people who featured in these texts were almost interchangeable and were only allowed the most minimal responses to the all-knowing mothers’ or aunts’ delivery of scientific knowledge. When, prior to her An Introduction to Botany of 1796, Wakefield adopted the dialogue
