… is the structure of a shared moral universe … that makes possible a collective (though rarely coordinated) action born of moral outrage. 2 The planters had a monopoly on local employment, controlled access to poor relief and pensions (until the Richardson reforms), owned most of the land on which their labourers rested their houses

deeper Indian socio-cultural and gender complexity and diversity. The missions directly linked the European moral body and its supposed physical decline to cohabitation with Indian mistresses and the over-stimulation of India’s heat, with resulting overpopulation borne from a lack of moral restraint. 5 With this new perspective, educational questions, particularly regarding females, were now problematic

Punch and the Armenian massacres of 1894–1896
Leslie Rogne Schumacher

‘Outrage and imperialism’ explores the response of Punch to the Armenian massacres of 1894–1896. The high moral position taken against the Ottomans – and the advocacy of British and pan-European intervention to defend the Armenians – is evident in the work of Sir John Tenniel and his junior cartoonist Linley Sambourne. Characterisations of the Sultan or a generic Turkish figure were complemented by depictions of a despicable hyena. A more darkly humorous take on the situation was offered by E. T. Reed. In observing Punch’s reactions, questions are prompted about the ways in which the west has absorbed and reformulated eastern issues for its own purposes. Punch and its readers responded with a mixture of indignation, confusion, anger, and equivocality. In a culture dominated by Orientalist fictions and tropes, Britons’ understanding of the nature of Muslim–Christian relations in the Ottoman Empire was opaque at best. And criticism of Ottoman imperialism was never permitted to interfere with attitudes towards its British counterpoint.

values such as filial piety and orderly social class structures. In the words of Flath: The Chinese state has a long record of promoting social order through regulation of customs, and since the early Qing dynasty it promoted this policy through a variety of official and semi-official publications dealing with the subject of moral and customary standards … Orthodox moral guidelines did ultimately have an effect on rural society by encouraging ritual praxis, but the real content of the moral world was

tension had all become associated with one peculiarly emotive issue, sexual behaviour. This was because sex workers had come to rival coffee as Buhaya’s most famous export. Anxiety about prostitution justified a tendency towards radical interventionism in the realm of sexuality that was sustained by evolving political, moral and economic debates right through to decolonisation. 6 Ethnographers and officials

expansionism, engaged in both legal and illegal attempts at annexation. Britain somewhat righteously served as Spain's banker and self-appointed moral conscience on the subject of slavery, an institution which nevertheless lingered in Cuba until 1886. This three-way imperial tug-of-war took on special urgency after 1833, when Britain passed the Slavery Abolition Act (3 and 4 Will. IV c. 73). The Act took effect in 1834, and by 1835 Britain had strong-armed Spain into signing a treaty to enforce the interdiction of the slave trade, thereupon placing the

death that leaves churches amongst the largest voluntary organisations in the country’. 61 While it may not have marked the death of Christian Britain, the apparent ‘crisis’ of Christianity did prompt many to re-evaluate the church's role in British life. For conservative members of the church this was a time to hunker down, embrace tradition, and defend the moral condition of Britain against the societal changes brought about by the affluence of the 1950s and early 1960s. Public debates centred on sexual permissiveness

the arts against the vestiges of aristocratic and courtly culture. 1 To this end, tacitly republican sectors within print culture played a significant role in the transformation of epic history painting, informed as it was by civic humanism, into a sentimental genre informed by moral sympathy and emphasizing the domestic and the feminine.
