-to-father) support groups which operate alongside the female groups. Within these platforms, best nutritional practices are discussed in conjunction with social norms which foreground beliefs and practices related to health, feeding and nutrition in the first place. Some of these norms being discussed and reconsidered are gender roles in the community and household. Adhering to some of the gender-positive discussions in the groups, men are increasingly building more intimacy with their wives and children, supporting the education of girls, and encouraging access to biomedical

compositions to enhance Americans’ ability to relate with people from afar. Concentrating his camera on women, children, and the elderly, Hine positioned the groups and individuals in his pictures in such a way as to disarm and to generate positive feelings. Often repeated is the figure of the pieta. For a predominantly Christian America, the apparent intimacy and careful attention suggested by a Madonna and child image signaled virtue and preeminent importance of a mother’s care. Hine’s pictures often conveyed tenderness and protection among adults and children. He also

. Preciado’s formulation of ‘gender’ as penetrator/penetrated in the global economy is overstated in its scope, yet can point us to perceiving a crucial way in which drone warfare is gendered, as drone warfare ‘works’ precisely by making only one side penetrated and penetrable. It prevents the bodies of one side from being penetrated and injured or killed while making vast swaths of the world into penetrable bodies; the ‘visual’ or at least external sensory mode of apprehending bodies is the dominant mode here still. The much-noted ‘voyeuristic intimacy’ 31 of the drone

doing, Houtryve emphasises the abstraction of drone photography, but these processes of formalisation do not neglect the human figure. Rather, they work as an aesthetic practice to produce images that differ from the stream of images in today’s media landscape, and which thus still have the power to speak to us and make us empathise. The body, intimacy and closeness Although drone vision is about distance, abstraction and flattening, it nevertheless also embodies closeness. Despite being detached, military drone pilots often get extremely close to their targets

Evaluating commemoration and generational transmission of the special relationship
Robert M. Hendershot

provide an instructive example of how the narrative of Anglo-American intimacy emerges through long-term and geographically dispersed public commemoration schemes as well. Over 920 blue plaques, which commemorate significant individuals on the exterior of the London buildings in which they once lived, have been installed in the greater metropolitan area since the program was initiated over 150 years ago. Liberal MP William Ewart first proposed the idea in the House of Commons in 1863, which fitted the general liberal democratic principle of using public funds and

, of course, that many children are active consumers in their own right). A key line running through Vivian Zelizer’s book The Purchase of Intimacy (2005) is that we take the relationship between economics and intimacy seriously and see household economics as a social process through which household relationships are constructed. 31 As Charlotte Faircloth also insists, contemporary parenting is a

European borders in 2015. And from this cynical perspective, the family on the photo has really no meaning.  AG: Okay, but you still have this guy in the hoodie looking straight up at the drone which creates a somewhat personal feeling or a sense of intimacy – almost as if he returns your gaze, as a kind of a counter-stare? RD: See, that’s why the drone is so different from normal aerial photography, because it allows you to get so close and obtain a kind of intimacy. When you photograph people on the ground, you will almost always know if they do not want to be

. Although born and raised in County Down, his family came from County Waterford and County Kerry, both now in the Republic of Ireland, settling after the First World War in Downpatrick, where his father became Town Clerk. In 1955, Hayes, too, became Town Clerk of Downpatrick, having been educated at De La Salle College in the town, and then at Queen’s University Belfast from which he graduated with a degree in English. The imagery of Seamus Heaney, Michael Longley and John Hewitt can be seen in his lecture. The intimacy of the Northern Ireland conflict, where virtually
