The cultural politics of Hill’s later work
Alex Wylie

Chapter 5 ‘Bless hierarchy’: the cultural politics of Hill’s later work Hierarchy and hegemony Bless hierarchy, dismiss hegemony.   (LIV, BH 738) This single line in Liber Illustrium Virorum is a vital moment in the progress of Hill’s later work. It occurs at a point of architectonic prominence, being the first line of the final poem of Liber Illustrium Virorum; appearing here, it hangs in the memory as the sequence’s motto, or emblem.

96 7 Displacement hierarchies: IDP community under question After the first run of vote counting, Don Eduardo did not get a place in the local council. Before the election a number of candidates invited their relatives to register their cédulas (identification documents) in the municipality where they did not normally live to be able to cast a vote for their family member. Some political parties allegedly organised transportation for people to come from elsewhere and vote for their representative or they paid for people’s expenses. Even though some of Don

invariably included a depreciation of the coniugati as the lowest state in the sexual–moral hierarchy, well behind the continent and the virgins. The reformers’ rhetoric, as has been discussed, was accompanied by increasing accusations of sexual misconduct, more frequent allegations of both spiritual and genealogical incest, and at the same time an increasing exaltation of chastity, continence, asceticism and even spiritual marriage. The reformers undoubtedly believed that these new values were in the best interests of Christian society. Yet, as Moore notes, what they

Syria and caused them to ignore critical issues relating to the use of conventional weapons, as well as other types of weapon associated with WMD – specifically biological armaments. The taboo creates false hierarchies that overstate the relative importance of chemical weapons and overlook core threats inherent to the crisis. This is an issue that goes way beyond chemical weapons alone to undermine the

The rules of political struggle

explicit knowledge of Weber's work would describe the relationship between politics and administration in terms of principles that matched Weber's emphasis on a hierarchical relationship, in which the rules of conduct within the two spheres are defined in hierarchical opposition to each other. In accordance to the Weberian classical principles of an administrative staff representing the organization of political domination, the political sphere and the administrative sphere were explained to me as an internal hierarchical division between two levels

The politics of colonial masculinity in the Ilbert Bill controversy not only reflected the intersection of racial and gender ideologies, but also enabled those hierarchies to be reconfigured in new ways.

2 Networks, structures and hierarchies P olice forces in the uk have emerged historically as semiautonomous, bureaucratic organisations, structured in terms of a pyramidal hierarchy that creates a framework of authority and deference.1 While much of this book is concerned with the everyday practices of policing, including encounters on the street and in other public places, it is important to discuss the institutional structures and hierarchies – including those of gender – that shaped professional experiences. Although women officers were appointed within
