Intimate relations

As the centuries go by, there is always a crowd before that picture, gazing into its depths, seeing their own faces reflected in it, seeing more the longer they look, never being able to say quite what it is that they see.

The rather brief anonymous Life of the Sienese Andrea Gallerani (which is all we have) was to all appearances composed with a local and immediate audience in view. Much of it could very well have been delivered as a sermon; the reader may choose to test this proposition by reading the translation

Victoria Woodhull, Salvatore Morelli, and feminist social reform in Italy and America
Maria Saveria Ruga

Among the works of the painter Andrea Cefaly (1827–1907), there is a curious oil on canvas titled The Progress of America (1880), which is located in the Museo delle Arti in Catanzaro (MARCA) together with about forty other works by this painter, including those documenting his Risorgimento experience (Plate 11). 1 The painter was a soldier in

The subject of forensic specialist‘s work with human remains in the aftermath of conflict has remained largely unexplored within the existing literature. Drawing upon anthropological fieldwork conducted from 2009–10 in three mortuary facilities overseen by the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH), this article analyses observations of and interviews with ICMP forensic specialists as a means of gaining insight into their experiences with the remains of people who went missing during the 1992–95 war in BiH. The article specifically focuses on how forensic specialists construct and maintain their professional identities within an emotionally charged situation. Through analysing forensic specialists encounters with human remains, it is argued that maintaining a professional identity requires ICMP forensic specialists to navigate between emotional attachment and engagement according to each situation.

Human Remains and Violence: An Interdisciplinary Journal
Results of the Charité Human Remains Project
Holger Stoecker and Andreas Winkelmann

From 2010 to 2013 the Charité Human Remains Project researched the provenance of the remains of fifty-seven men and women from the then colony of German South West Africa. They were collected during German colonial rule, especially but not only during the colonial war 1904–8. The remains were identified in anthropological collections of academic institutions in Berlin. The article describes the history of these collections, the aims, methods and interdisciplinary format of provenance research as well as its results and finally the restitutions of the remains to Namibia in 2011 and 2014.

significant shift in Greek public discourse. In particular in 1996 Andreas Papandreou, the historical leader of PASOK, who had returned to power with the elections of 1993, died. This event symbolically brought to an end the period of charismatic leaders in Greek politics. The other side of this development was that Costas Simitis, against all odds, replaced Papandreou as the leader of the PASOK government, and within a few months was also elected president of the party. Simitis was part of the ‘modernisation wing’ of PASOK that was always a minority within the party (see

10 Writing Sugar in the Blood Andrea Stuart In March 2003, just after my second book was published, I was on holiday in my family’s villa in Barbados. Aware that I had an interest in family history, my uncle Trevor (now dead) brought Carlisle Bourne, a distant cousin, to visit. After some awkward introductions – my newly excavated relative was an intensely shy man – we convened around a table on the shady patio overlooking the pink and orange bougainvillea, in the stifling heat of the midday sun. Bourne, whom I had never met before and have never seen since

others, rendering specific actors legitimate and others illegitimate, structuring humanitarian institution and practices. A small but relatively coherent body of literature has emerged that critically examines this phenomenon of quantitative humanitarianism. Within this nascent field, four books stand out. Peter Andreas and Kelly Greenhill (2010) provide an excellent edited volume Sex, Drugs and Body Counts that documents the politics and processes

beings and their sad belongings, the photos thus uncover a changed Europe and address an inconvenient truth about how we as Europeans protect our Western communities against immigration. Through its clean aesthetics and distanced gaze, the drone captures this tension by mirroring the governmental view from above, which sees no individuals, only faceless numbers. Andreas Immanuel Graae and Rasmus Degnbol first became acquainted in 2016 when they both spoke at a drone conference at the H. C. Andersen Airport in Odense, Denmark. Since then they have developed a

15 The safety of the people and the case against invasive health promotion Andreas Hasman Introduction In his ‘The safety of the people’ argument, Harris draws on Thomas Hobbes’s original position on the legitimacy of sovereign power, to defend a contemporary state’s moral obligation to ensure the provision of health care to its citizens.1 This chapter explores how the argument lends itself to a recent change of emphasis in health policy, which I shall refer to as ‘invasive health promotion’. This development is characterised by: • An understanding that the
