politics and economics (what we refer to here as the international) is (re)produced and changed. This hegemonic discourse
approach is not understood as a theory in its own right. Rather, it is
put forward as a mode of social inquiry that offers a method of ‘isolating’ – in a Foucaultian, archaeological sense – the international, in
order to study its conditions of production, reproduction and change.
Thus, the hegemonic discourse approach is proposed as an analytical
framework for studying the biopolitics of the international, which is

fragments of the patient case records of mental hospitals, known
earlier as hospitals for the insane, these stories need to be read
against the historical backdrop of societies in formation. This book is
about their stories, how these were told and produced inside
institutions for the insane, and through welfare provisions, and how, in

thinness of the glass Bell was using at this early stage: the exterior grid
to the window can be clearly seen through the green background to the
figure. The Rattery commission is a fine example of the emergence of
archaeological reference, the continued preference for painterly figures and
glass-painting techniques and material inherited from the eighteenth-century
tradition. The result

in global arenas, exiled or travelled along the lines of capital in pursuit of labour, new
materials and technologies, or chased redemption and robust ideological utopias away
from home. This book reflects on the machine’s implications for labour within the
complex economic, social and political frameworks engulfing postwar Europe. The
machine was, almost literally, the vehicle through which national and geographical
boundaries were questioned: both stabiliser and tectonics of the modern age
rather narrowly on individuals deemed at risk, rather than focusing
on the underlying causes affecting the entire population (G. Rose, 2001).
While often highly critical of the state of contemporary health promotion interventions, it is usually an internal critique that only rarely touches
upon the social and political dynamics shaping public health interventions.
However, public health promotion has also received attention from social
science scholars that explicitly addresses the social and political norms,
forces, and consequences of the contemporary quest for
divisions within the collections.
He replaced what he saw as an absurd miscellany with a continuous sequence, from
palaeontology through archaeology to zoology and botany. Over the following
decades, in Manchester as elsewhere, specialist disciplinary communities gradually
crystallised around particular objects. For disciplines in museums were enacted
not only in the material culture of the collections, but also through personnel and
administrative structures. This specialist precipitation was contingent and uneven,
and the disciplinary landscape did not necessarily match

It interrogates museums as unique cultural institutions which straddled
the public and the private – or the domestic and the scholarly – to show
how such borderlands opened to women (and were opened by women)
during the period, but also tended to segregate women in specifically
gendered enclaves which institutionalised feminine expertise as real and
separate, but less important than masculine expertise.

Indeed, the act of collecting such emblematic artefacts demonstrated the
alleged distance of the societies that produced them from the progress
symbolised by the imperial modernism of the museum in which they were
