Orkney women between the visible and invisible
Liv Helene Willumsen

Ninety-nine beings – fourscore and nineteen – danced in the fields of Moaness in the Orkney island of Hoy some years before 1643. Or so said Barbara Bowndie, who confessed to having been one of these dancers during her investigation for witchcraft. But it is not entirely clear that the other dancers were human. This chapter subjects her striking tale to detailed analysis. The number of dancers draws attention to magic numbers in folk belief, while the dance itself is part of the lore – learned or popular – of witches’ meetings. During Barbara’s interrogation

. This was a strategy indulged in by Gaelic Irish and Old English alike, and recent studies have explored such possible reconfigurations through the lens of sovereignty, with O’Neill and O’Donnell’s Habsburg fantasies offering a particularly explosive example. This chapter takes a different approach to understanding the relationship between the Elizabethan succession crisis, the Nine Years’ War and Gaelic lords’ pursuit of a Habsburg executive, analysing the relationship as one driven by questions of government

Queer Feminist Film Curation and the Freedom to Revolt

Selina Robertson

During summer 2018, Club Des Femmes (CDF), in collaboration with the Independent Cinema Office funded by the British Film Institute (BFI), curated a UK-wide touring season of films considering the aftermath of May 1968. ‘Revolt, She Said: Women and Film after ’68’ comprised nine feature films and eight accompanying shorts, exploring the legacy of 1968 on contemporary feminisms, art and activism transnationally. In this article, two members of CDF unpack the queer feminist ethics and affects of the tour, through the voices of multiple participants, and framed conceptually by Sara Ahmed’s ‘willful feminist’ and Donna Haraway’s ‘staying with the trouble’.

The theological energies released by Martin Luther in 1517 created a set of theological insights and problems that eventually led to the development of kenotic Christology (i. e., the view that in order for the Son of God to become incarnate and live a genuinely human life, he emptied himself of his divine prerogatives or attributes). This article traces how kenotic Christology originated in the Eucharistic Controversy between Luther and Zwingli, before receiving its first extensive treatment in the debate between the Lutheran theologians of Tübingen and Giessen in,the early seventeenth century. Attention then turns to the nine-teenth century, when doctrinal tensions resulting from the enforced union of the Prussian Lutheran and Reformed churches created the conditions for a new flowering of kenotic Christology in the theologies of Ernst Sartorius and, subsequently, Gottfried Thomasius. Kenotic Christology ultimately originates with Luther, however, for it owes its existence to the creative theological energies he unleashed and which remain his lasting legacy.

lives and understand the role of these services within that broader context. In Jordan, our initial sample consisted of eighty-nine participants in non-camp, urban settings, from five countries of origin: Syria, Yemen, Iraq, Sudan and Somalia. The sample was almost equally split between Syrians and non-Syrians and between male and female participants. Seventy of eighty-nine participants had been in Jordan for three to eight years. Seventy-two belonged to the working age group
