8 Licensing, monitoring, and training parents We should distinguish the rights parents have ‘over’ their children from the ‘right to parent’. This is the distinction between parents’ power over their children, or more precisely parents’ legitimate power over their children, on the one hand, and the right to play the role of a parent and therefore the right to raise or rear children, on the other hand. In this chapter I focus on the latter, the ‘right to parent’, before proceeding in subsequent chapters to examine the legitimacy of various aspects of parents

5 Working and parenting in the middle years Well it’s great, it’s fantastic, we have […] friends of ours who unfortunately can’t have children and you can see the difference, the hole in their eyes, and they’ll tell you, well they may or may not tell you but I think there’s a difference, there’s a huge gap, so I think it’s great, it’s absolutely fantastic, there’s nothing nicer that having them [children] jump on top of you or wondering where you are. (Sam’s father, GUI) The quotation above summarizes a widely held belief about being a parent – that it is a

6 Lone parents, leisure mobilities and the everyday Bernadette Quinn Recent social and economic commentary on Ireland has tended to accentuate the extreme changes associated with the Celtic Tiger era. Stories of ostentatious consumption patterns dominated discursive narratives in popular, academic and policy forums. This was for good reason as trend data of all descriptions attested to startling transformations in people’s lifestyles and mobilities. To take just one example, data from the Census Statistics Office (CSO) (2007; 2008) show that foreign overnight

Atheism and polygenesis
Nathan G. Alexander

Race in a Godless World 1 Were Adam and Eve our first parents? Atheism and polygenesis For much of the history of Christianity, it was taken as a fact that all humans descended from Adam and Eve about 6,000 years ago. This idea first came under threat upon the European discovery of the Americas and the previously unknown people who lived there. Since the Bible was silent about these mysterious people, various authors – the most important being Isaac La Peyrère (1596–1676) – rejected the orthodox view and instead speculated that there must have been men who

Aesthetico-political misprision in Derricke’s A Discoverie of Woodkarne
Thomas Cartelli

. It is not utterly beyond possibility that the bare-bottomed posturers are meant to be entertainers, this time dealers in low humour, of whom gentle society should doubtless not approve, but for rather different reasons: ‘Aspice spectator sic me docuere parentes’ (‘See, viewer, thus did my parents teach me’) declares one of them in a self-justification that becomes a self-discommendation. 3 As he proceeds, Fletcher deploys a ‘diagram of the Tech Midchuarda , the

The Marvel Films‘ Loki as Gothic Antagonist
Alice Nuttall

This paper explores the role and function of the Marvel film‘s Loki as a Gothic antagonist. Loki‘s characterisation incorporates several Gothic themes. As a shapeshifter, he corresponds with the idea of the unstable and fragmented body, also found in Gothic texts dealing with supernatural transformations. By breaking down the barriers between the realms of Asgard, Earth and Jotunheim, Loki engages with tropes surrounding Gothic space, where borders and boundaries are permeable. Finally, Loki is Othered by his association with the feminine and queer Gothic, something that ultimately leads to another common Gothic theme, that of madness.

Gothic Studies
Rebecca Styler

Elizabeth Gaskell used Gothic as a symbolic language to explore the dark side of Unitarian thought. She explores, in rationalist terms, evils origins, effects, and remedy, using Gothic tropes as metaphors for humanly created misery. Gaskell locates the roots of ‘evil’ in an unenlightened social order – in ‘The Crooked Branch’ erroneous parenting, and in ‘The Poor Clare’ wider social structures, both distorted by the ideology of privilege. ‘The Poor Clare’ also engages with the tension between moral determinism and personal responsibility, and defends a Unitarian salvation. This tale also demonstrates Gaskell‘s views on aspects of Roman Catholicism.

Middle-Aged Syrian Women’s Contributions to Family Livelihoods during Protracted Displacement in Jordan
Dina Sidhva, Ann-Christin Zuntz, Ruba al Akash, Ayat Nashwan, and Areej Al-Majali

Introduction ‘In Syria, I was always like, bring me this, bring me that.’ Before the Syrian conflict, 38-year-old Marwa 1 lived in various working-class neighbourhoods in Damascus, sheltered by her parents and, later, by her husband. At the age of 17, Marwa dropped out of high school to get married to a tradesman and thereafter never left the house unaccompanied. Seven years after the family fled to Jordan, we met with Marwa in Al Hashmi Al
