Textual correspondences in feminist art and writing
Author: Kimberly Lamm

In the late 1960s and 1970s, women artists in the United States and Britain began to make texts and images of writing central to their visual compositions. This book explores the feminist stakes of that choice. It analyses how Adrian Piper, Nancy Spero, and Mary Kelly worked with the visual dimensions of language to transform how women are perceived. To illuminate the specific ways in which these artists and writers contribute to the production of a feminist imaginary, Part I charts the correspondences between the artwork of Piper and the writings of Davis. It analyses the artwork she created in the late 1960s and 1970s, when she began using text to create artwork that moves between what Piper identifies as 'the singular reality of the "other."' Davis's writing exposes the fictions animating projections that the black female body is perceived to be a malleable ground upon which fears and fantasies can take visual form. Part II focuses on aggression and traces how its repression plays out across Spero's Codex Artaud and Solanas's SCUM Manifesto. It argues that in Post-Partum Document, texts and pieces of writing become fetish objects that Kelly arranges into visual and linguistic 'poems' that forestall a confrontation with loss. Part III demonstrates that the maternal femininity thought to naturally inhere in woman is also restricted and muffled, quite efficiently repressing the possibility that women could address each other across maternal femininity's contested terrain.

Applying intersectionality to understand statelessness in Europe
Deirdre Brennan, Nina Murray, and Allison J. Petrozziello

activism today. While it is important to bring into focus the specific experience of stateless women (Brennan has pointed out this lack of research thus far), this chapter is not a call to simply ‘ask the question of women’ ( 2019 : 171). Prioritising gender risks ignoring the other forces of oppression in stateless people’s lives, like national or economic circumstances, that may impact both

The list of Nikolić’s crimes reads like a litany: On or about 6 July 1992, DRAGAN

A French Obsession
François Burgat

To this day, the (very) French difficulty in reaching a rational relationship with Islamic Otherness is expressed through a tendency to refuse to communicate directly with the Other in corporeal form. How much cosier it is to not have to look in the eye the hideous Arabic-speaking, Muslim, Arab male, guilty of every sin. So what if, along with his hijab- clad wife, they make up the demographic majority in the region? We more or less consciously prefer to deal with those who, in the immediate vicinity of those creatures, have the good

Inscribing difference in colonial institutional settings
Catharine Coleborne

vigilance was important: ‘the lot of the insane to-day might be any man’s to-morrow, through fright, joy, grief, or a break-down in running the pace that kills in modern industrial life’. 6 This chapter deals with the processes of discursive marginalisation of certain social, ethnic and cultural identities that occurred inside institutions. By using the term theOthers’, this chapter refers to the

The Others began as a small-scale, art film project for the European market. The intended setting was Chile, Amenábar’s birthplace. The ambition was to explore the repressions of his childhood, especially the impact of religious dogma on family life and the education of children. Over time, however, the film was transformed into the most expensive, biggest-grossing, box-office hit in Spanish film

French denaturalisation law on the brink of World War II
Marie Beauchamps

’ (Foucault 2007 : 63). 7 Emphasising adaptability on the one hand and normalisation processes on the other, Foucault’s approach to security is particularly helpful when scrutinising the politics of denaturalisation as presented in the 1939 bill. For, as the bill reads, denaturalisation is a principle which not only works according to certain ‘ modes of application’ (emph. added), but

Metropolis, India and progress in the colonial imagination
Author: John Marriott

This is a detailed study of the various ways in which London and India were imaginatively constructed by British observers during the nineteenth century. This process took place within a unified field of knowledge that brought together travel and evangelical accounts to exert a formative influence on the creation of London and India for the domestic reading public. Their distinct narratives, rhetoric and chronologies forged homologies between representations of the metropolitan poor and colonial subjects—those constituencies that were seen as the most threatening to imperial progress. Thus the poor and particular sections of the Indian population were inscribed within discourses of western civilization as regressive and inferior peoples. Over time, these discourses increasingly promoted notions of overt and rigid racial hierarchies, the legacy of which remains to this day. This comparative analysis looks afresh at the writings of observers such as Henry Mayhew, Patrick Colquhoun, Charles Grant, Pierce Egan, James Forbes and Emma Roberts, thereby seeking to rethink the location of the poor and India within the nineteenth-century imagination. Drawing upon cultural and intellectual history, it also attempts to extend our understanding of the relationship between ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’.

7 ‘The other minority’1 On the 2 February 1972 (the National Day of Mourning), people in Newbridge, Co. Kildare awoke to find the town’s Anglican church, St. Patrick’s, and shops belonging to local Protestants had been daubed with sectarian slogans.2 It was one of a number of such incidents, illustrating how war in the North was reviving dormant questions about southern Protestant loyalties. Most, however, denied that sectarianism played any part in southern life. Shortly after Bloody Sunday, Jack Lynch assured a correspondent that there had been ‘no … threats
