Origins, originality, and the privileges of nature179 6 Origins, originality, and the privileges of nature There can be little doubt that the University – indeed the entire infrastructure of all our educational institutions – has become a battleground in recent times. In extreme form, this affects jurisdictions beyond the UK much more negatively than it does here. Recently, we have seen academics being arrested and jailed in Turkey, for instance; we have seen students attacked in a whole series of places, including South Africa, Australia, and the USA.

’s fifteen local offices in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, the Caribbean, and South America, there is now a person responsible for communications. Similarly, over the past year, the CRC has created a unique program of training for ‘digital volunteer specialists’ across the organization. Falconer attributes the size and the originality of the program to established strengths of the organization: a network of volunteers who donate according to their individual experience and availability ( Glassford, 2018 ), as well as what she calls the ‘scalable’ nature of an organization

. It was in the mandate of Rockbrune’s service to see that copies of all published magazines and books made their way to the National Library of Canada, according to the law of legal deposit. All the while, he thought it important to keep his own sample of what was shipped. The originality of his collection resides in the preservation of publications and recordings in an order close to the way they were sent to educators, and in their association with a variety of less official documents, from posters to maps, subscription cards, teachers’ guides and bulletins, lists

printmaking (other than chronicles of technical practice) and a neglect of the medium in art theory and criticism. It is, as she put it, ‘an especially puzzling slight when the medium seems so accessible to debates surrounding notions of authorship, originality, social formation, [and] agency…that have dominated the critical discourse of western art since antiquity.’ 3 Where

This book explores why Jack Clayton had made so few films and why most of them failed to find a large audience. It examines the kind of criticism they generated, sometimes adulatory but sometimes dismissive and even condescending. The book hopes to throw light on certain tendencies and developments within the film industry and of film criticism, the British film industry and film criticism in particular. The fact that Clayton's films fit David Bordwell's paradigm of the art film is one explanation why producers had difficulty with him and why mainstream cinema found his work hard to place and assimilate. Clayton's pictorial eye has sometimes antagonised critics: they often take exception to some aspect of his mise-en-scene. Clayton had come to prominence with Room at the Top, around the time of the British 'Free Cinema' movement and immediately prior to the so-called British 'new-wave' films of the early 1960s from directors such as Tony Richardson and John Schlesinger. Thorold Dickinson's evocation of the Russian atmosphere and, in particular, his use of suspenseful soundtrack to suggest ghostly visitation undoubtedly had an influence on Jack Clayton's style in both The Bespoke Overcoat and The Innocents. The critical controversy concerning the status of Jack Clayton as director and artist is probably at its most intense over The Pumpkin Eater. Clayton stressed the importance of an opening that established right away the situation of 'a woman in crisis' but wanted to delay the Harrods scene so as to build up an atmosphere of suspense.

Class cultures, the trade unions and the Labour Party

ITLP_C08.QXD 18/8/03 10:00 am Page 116 8 Ross McKibbin: class cultures, the trade unions and the Labour Party John Callaghan The work of the historian is always a complex and heterogeneous aggregate of theories, narrative, interpretation and analysis. Such originality as it possesses lies more often than not in the distinctive pattern which the historian gives to the components of his or her work, rather than the components themselves, many of which may be found elsewhere. The three books by Ross McKibbin which form the focus of this chapter raise

Fear’ (1746) The originality of Collins’s Ode lies in the fact that personified Fear is positively wooed rather than avoided by the aspiring poet. It can be measured against another, far more conventional, ‘Ode to Fear’ by Andrew Erskine ( Scots Magazine , 25, (April 1763), pp. 218–19). Erskine uses a regular sonnet form for his stanzas, orders Fear ‘Away with all thy

mind the ideas of all the variety of forms imaginable.10 Hogarth’s main originality was his questioning of art’s ambition to ‘correct’, ‘improve’ or ‘beautify’ nature. Echoing Addison’s seminal 1712 ‘Pleasures of the Imagination’ essays in The Spectator, he acknowledges ‘that infinite variety of human forms which always distinguishes the hand of nature from the limited and insufficient one of art.’11 One of the last chapters of the Analysis, devoted to 256 Rotund bellies and double chins ‘the Face’, is obviously concerned, between the lines, with the art of

Bernard-Henri Lévy. If a few participants were still hoping to be enlightened as to these root causes, what a precious opportunity they had just been granted to identify the true components of the dread engine of radicalization! The Lessons of Palestine From an internal perspective, the key originality of the question of political Islam in Palestine is the unfinished quality of Palestinian para-statal structures, deprived to this day of the greater share of the prerogatives of a state. This explains the relatively late
