, Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). In STEM, gender-inclusion means striking a balance between men and women taking studies and advancing in careers in these fields ( Achiam and Holmegaard, 2015 : 6). In contrast, according to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) (2017) , gender-inclusion refers to the ‘gender equality and empowerment of women as well as the active participation of women in political

, collaboration might take the form of activity linking and coordination at sub-national levels or across sectors ( Baker et al. , 2017 ; Norad, 2009 ; UNESCO, 2016 ). UN OCHA clusters/task forces/working groups are examples that are widely recommended in the evaluation reports ( FAO, 2015 ; Norad, 2017 ; OCHA, 2015 ). In parts of the country, additional NGOs are less of a priority than cooperation and collaboration between existing ones ( DRC, 2015 ). As an initial entry point, collaboration should be fostered within donor and organisational portfolios ( ACF, 2011 ; GoC

The Anne Lister Diaries, 1833–36 - Land, gender and authority
Author: Jill Liddington

"Female Fortune is the book which inspired Sally Wainwright to write Gentleman Jack, now a major drama series for the BBC and HBO.

Lesbian landowner Anne Lister inherited Shibden Hall in 1826. She was an impressive scholar, fearless traveller and successful businesswoman, even developing her own coalmines. Her extraordinary diaries, running to 4–5 million words, were partly written in her own secret code and recorded her love affairs with startling candour. The diaries were included on UNESCO’s Memory of the World Register in 2011.

Jill Liddington’s classic edition of the diaries tells the story of how Anne Lister wooed and seduced neighbouring heiress Ann Walker, who moved in to live with Anne and her family in 1834. Politically active, Anne Lister door-stepped her tenants at the 1835 Election to vote Tory. And socially very ambitious, she employed architects to redesign both the Hall and the estate.

Yet Ann Walker had an inconvenient number of local relatives, suspicious of exactly how Anne Lister could pay for all her grand improvements. Tensions grew to a melodramatic crescendo when news reached Shibden of the pair being burnt in effigy.

This 2022 edition includes a fascinating Afterword on the recent discovery of Ann Walker’s own diary. Female Fortune is essential reading for those who watched Gentleman Jack and want to know more about the extraordinary woman that was Anne Lister.

 17 2 Changing conceptions of lifelong education/​learning Introduction T his chapter will focus on the development (Wain, 2004, pp. 1–​90) of lifelong education (LLE)/​learning (LLL). This constitutes the key aspect of contemporary European universities’ work being analysed in this book. The chapter will discuss the development of the concept from its promotion by UNESCO and later formulations and emphases, most of which reflect OECD and EU agendas. The implications of the discursive shift from LLE to LLL will be considered, as will the relationship between

Negotiating scholarly personae in UNESCO’s General History of Africa

how to be a historian Chapter 10 What is an African historian? Negotiating scholarly personae in UNESCO’s General History of Africa Larissa Schulte Nordholt Introduction Scholarly personae have been studied, so far, almost exclusively in European and North-American contexts. Given the recent ‘global’ turn in historiography and the social dynamics of in- and exclusion present in the history of historiography, this is remarkable.1 This chapter therefore aims to study the emergence of African history as a (sub-)discipline in the second half of the twentieth

the adoption of UNESCO’s Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (1972), also known as the World Heritage Convention, are described in many contexts. However, the content of these histories varies with the purposes and perspectives concerned. A point on which they diverge especially markedly is the question how far back in time the origins of the Convention are sought – back to 1965, 1959, 1945, 1919, the 1870s, 1789, or the seventeenth century. The shortest history was presented by persons involved in the creation of the

history, memory, and heritage, why Ramses II’s cliff temples were moved, we could interrogate the participants themselves or look for their justifications. What is the point of this enormous operation to save some old temples? Why this fascination with the past? Why tell about, remember, and preserve traces of distant ages? The intention would then be to uncover the motives through the participants’ own justifications. The justifications for the Nubian campaign were presented in 1960 by the then Director-General of UNESCO, Vittorino Veronese. An appeal described the
