(Lynch, 20 October 1971) This chapter examines the meaning and significance given to ‘borders’ by official Irish discourse when defining Irish ‘territory’ and European ‘space’.1 The model of national territory is of a physical, bordered polity made live by the narrative of a common homeland. The framework

land itself is than sea, or for that matter, air, outer space, or any other particular environment. The way in which IR is largely based on abstract concepts intended to see beyond, or even obscure, the significance of particular environments is not limited to its abstraction from the ocean (Barkawi, 2009 ). Of course, struggles over territory are prominent in disciplinary narratives, but discussion of what territory

Neill and Geraint Ellis The purpose of this chapter is to review the history of strategic spatial policy in post-partition Northern Ireland. The principal focus of the chapter falls on developments since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, especially in relation to the vision of regional planning as a whole and physical image enhancement of the ‘post-conflict’ city of Belfast in particular.

It brought together authorities from all the mainland states and the Northern Territory under the guidance of the Commonwealth Department for the Interior for what the Minister Thomas Paterson described as an ‘epoch-making event’, the first time all the authorities ‘controlling natives’ gathered to discuss Aboriginal ‘welfare’. 2 Robert Manne has located this Conference at the heart of his discussion of Australian genocide, quoting the Western Australian

Madras as a narrative of terrains, territories and conquest. It identifies three phases in which the medical establishment followed the changing trajectory of EEIC’s military and political engagements in India: starting from 1700 with the establishment of the EEIC trading base in India and the formation of the medical establishment, the 1750s with the escalation of military activities leading a difficult and yet formative period for the establishment. Finally, in the 1780s, there was a period of consolidation of EEIC’s conquests in

6 Occupied territories (1940–67) In summer 1945, cultural theorist Paul Virilio rediscovered the Atlantic coastline after six years of war and occupation: I have forgotten none of the sequences of this finding in the course of a summer when recovering peace and access to the beach were one and the same event. With the barriers removed, you were henceforth free to explore the liquid continent . . . The waterfront villas were empty, everything within the casemates’ firing range had been up, the beaches were mined, and the artificers were busy here and there

Banishment, abuse of power and strategies of resistance

This book analyses three Shakespearean plays that mainly deal with abusive forms of banishment: King Richard II, Coriolanus and King Lear. These plays present with particular clarity the mechanism of the banishment proclamation and its consequences, that is, the dynamic of exclusion and its repercussions. Those repercussions may entail breaking the ban to come back illegally and seek revenge; devising strategies of deviation, such as disguise and change of identity; or resorting to mental subterfuges as a means of refuge. They may also lead to entropy – exhaustion, letting go or heartbreak. Each in its own way, they invite us to reflect upon the complex articulation between banishment and abuse of power, upon the strategies of resistance and displacement employed to shun or endure the painful experience of ‘deterritorialisation’; they put into play the dialectics of allegiance and disobedience, of fearlessly speaking and silencing, of endurance and exhaustion; they question both the legitimacy of power and the limits of human resistance. This study draws on French scholars in Shakespearean studies, and also on contemporary French historians, theorists, anthropologists, psychoanalysts, essayists and philosophers, who can help us read Shakespeare’s plays in our time. It thus takes into account some of the works of Roland Barthes, Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, Gaston Bachelard, Marcel Detienne and Jean-Pierre Vernant, Boris Cyrulnik and Emmanuel Housset. The hope is that their respective intellectual approaches will shed specific kinds of light on Shakespeare’s plays and initiate a fruitful dialogue with Anglo-Saxon criticism.

Principality (led by Pakualam VIII). The palace compound of the Yogyakarta sultan encompassed 140 hectares, with thirty-nine buildings divided into seven sections; 10,000 royal servants worked daily for the sultan.

They worked on behalf of William Petty, an Oxford-based anatomist who became physician-general of Parliament’s forces in Ireland and later surveyor-general of the country.
