Thinking patriarchy
Katie Barclay

elites between 1650 and 1850. It highlights the significance of the patriarchal system in shaping how men and women conceived of marriage and that their every interaction, however benign, was a product of the patriarchal system that gave their behaviour meaning. is study focuses on the conjugal unit, looking at how couples negotiated love, intimacy, the management of the household and, ultimately, the balance of power within their marriage. It demonstrates that the patriarchal system was not static, but recreated in every negotiation, ensuring its continuation across

the interests of the ‘we’, since I am one of ‘us’. Second, when I argue about values such as autonomy and intimacy, my point is not that they are bad (they are certainly not), nor that they are not aided by privacy (they generally are), but rather that they shouldn’t be read as the value of privacy, the reason we should protect it, the nub of any proper account. My

threats at religious conversions, formulates a homogenous Hindu identity, frames a ‘vulnerable’ Hindu woman, and reinstates familial patriarchies. Above all, it signifies taboos on the expression of love that defies boundaries, and anxieties around women's independent-individual expressions of desire. ‘Love jihad’ is inseparable from the imperative of disciplining desire, where a Hindu-coded nation is deciding the rules of love and intimacy. The anxieties underpinning the campaign of ‘love jihad’ played no minor role in mobilising and consolidating support for the BJP

’. Immigration, the story goes, does not simply threaten British society but it does so by undermining the normative institutions of marriage and family. So, what is so dangerous about sham marriage? And in turn, what is a ‘sham’? Who is a ‘sham’? And what do ‘shams’ do? In this chapter I trace the way that fears about shams have driven a style of government in contemporary Britain built on demarcations of ‘genuine’ and ‘sham’ Shams 101 intimacies. Starting with immigration rules around family migration, I reveal how this has connected up with broader practices of

Republican families Laurent-Pichat’s family life illustrates the intimacy and affection that has been richly demonstrated in bourgeois families from at least the late eighteenth century. 4 Indeed, his family shows

regimes and visual registers of normality, emerged as experiments of colonial management. Central to the continuity of colonial borders has been the way that ‘family’ works as a transit point for colonial taxonomies of perversion and the human – that is, in categorising who should be subject to borders, who can move, who can settle, who is dangerous. From sham marriages, to monstrous intimacies, to the ‘good’, domesticated migrant, I have shown the work that the normative power of family does in making certain people appear normal, domesticated, familial – and

alone sexual intimacy. During the first months of their conjugal life, Nadezhda attributed this to Andrei's shyness and modesty but soon she grew impatient. Whenever she attempted to initiate sex, Andrei pushed her away and when she insisted he lost his temper. 2 When they went to discotheques at Gorkii's dance hall on Sundays, Andrei never danced with Nadezhda. Very often he just left her there alone and went off to have a beer at a nearby café with his buddies, none of whom

The younger Elizabeth describes herself as learning from the forbearance of her aunt, who ‘with cherefullnes

It stands, I argue, as an example of the way that mobility, intimacy and claims to family played a central role in both energising and organising colonial rule. After the opening of the exhibit, newspaper stories circulated regarding the effect of the presence of the ‘savages’ in London. Exoticised and eroticised accounts of ‘savage’ behaviour spread as far as the Los Angelesbased Pall Mall paper. White women, it was said, were seen disappearing into the tribal tents which

’: the necessary and continual difference between the one and the other, which forever postpones their full coincidence. Conversely, in the picture drawn by Cavell’s vision of ‘intimacy’, our picture of such things would be such that experiences of deferral, even if it takes place, might be overcome through some form of ‘return’, a guiding back: as each departure occurs, we might be able to find our way back ‘home’, as Cavell puts it. In such circumstances, deferral here would ultimately be something like ‘being lost’. In Wittgenstein’s vision – Cavell suggests –, this
