succeeded in mobilising the idea of ‘lived theory’ conceptualised by A. Sivanandan, the concept first introduced into the project through early discussions with Jasber Singh. ‘Lived theory’ is tasked with reorienting colonial academic orthodoxies to people's actual experiences and their unfolding struggles for equality. The team is aware of the power relations within the study, including in terms of the established (colonial) dynamic that is often inherent between researchers and those being researched. Therefore, we also want to ask, to what extent decolonisation can be

Stirner, anarchy, subjectivity and the art of living
John Moore

3 John Moore Lived poetry: Stirner, anarchy, subjectivity and the art of living1 Introduction At the heart of the new anarchism(s) there lies a concern with developing a whole new way of being in and acting upon the world.2 Contemporary revolutionary anarchism is not merely interested in effecting changes in socioeconomic relations or dismantling the State, but in developing an entire art of living, which is simultaneously anti-authoritarian, anti-ideological and antipolitical. The development of a distinctively anarchist savoir-vivre is a profoundly

4 The will to live Standing in the rubble In November 2013, the roof of the supermarket Maxima collapsed in the Zolitūde suburb of Riga, amidst Soviet-era apartment blocks and post-1991 high-rises. Fifty-four people died under the falling slabs of concrete. Police started an investigation, and a public debate ensued about the widespread use of low-quality building materials to reduce costs, about suspicious links between the construction industry and political parties, as well as about the costs of the post-2008 austerity. The opposition party, which was in

United States of America is an untouchable.’ In that moment, he realized that the Land of the Free had imposed a caste system not unlike the caste system of India and that he had lived under that system all of his life. It was what lay beneath the forces he was fighting in America. 1 Ambedkar’s impact on King is one example of the widespread reach of his legacy. It is difficult today to imagine the scale of what Babasaheb Dr Bhimji Rao Ambedkar accomplished. To be born into an

(Comment posted on’s Comment is Free discussion forum) Much has been written in the past 20 years about the representation of ‘distant others’ in the news media. It was seen in the previous chapter that for Silverstone the issue of a ‘proper distance’ between audiences and mediated others is crucial because it involves the representation of humans to other humans. I have

Narratives exploring relationships in modern British society
Nigel Mather

(particularly from Bob’s point of view), but also as an attempt by the film-makers to find some kind of humorous or slightly subversive note upon which to conclude events, the film, having elsewhere, depicted the local community as frequently at odds with itself and being far from a harmonious or enjoyable place in which to live and prosper. If relationships are complicated and unpredictable in Alan Clarke and Andrea Dunbar’s film, they are equally so in Stephen Frears and Hanif Kureishi’s My Beautiful Laundrette (1985), a tale of a seemingly unlikely sexual and emotional

Inter-war fascistisation
Wendy Ugolini

Chapter Two ‘Long live Mussolini and Fascismo’: inter-war fascistisation In the insightful publication, Enemies Within, exploring wartime internment in Canada, Australia and Britain, historians identify a critical failure within the Italian community, in particular its leadership, to address fully their Fascist past.1 They argue that recent attempts by community leaders in Canada to gain an apology for internment has led to the ‘glossing over’ of the Fascist history of Italian diasporic communities.2 Principe, specifically, argues that the behaviour of the

T WO PRODUCTIONS OF STAGE adaptations of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein emerged in the UK in the spring of 2011, both of which made explicit reference to their liveness in performance. The National Theatre in London production was based upon Nick Dear’s stage adaptation of the novel and was directed by celebrated filmmaker, Danny Boyle. It featured acclaimed popular television and film actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Jonny Lee Miller. As part of its theatrical run, the production was commissioned, on a couple of occasions, to be

Mourning and Melancholia in Female Gothic, 1780–1800
Angela Wright

Wright explores how novels by Eliza Fenwick, Sophia Lee, Maria Roche, and Ann Radcliffe critique, via their fascination with portraiture, eighteenth-century consumerism. Wright argues that this engagement with image-making indicates late eighteenth century concerns with fashion, opulence and consumerism which become relocated in women‘s Gothic writing through the correlated issues of female insanity, desire and loss.

3047 Priestleys England 5/4/07 12:31 Page 166 6 ‘Now we must live up to ourselves’: New Jerusalem and beyond In that magnificent summer of 1940, when I spent my days collecting information, and my nights broadcasting it to the world beyond the ring of steel around us, I think I felt better than ever before or since. We lived at last in a community with a noble common purpose, and the experience was not only novel but exhilarating. We had a glimpse then of what life might be if men and women freely dedicated themselves, not to their appetites and prejudices
