Pollution, contamination and the neglected dead in post-war Saigon

4 Dead zone: pollution, contamination and the neglected dead in post-war Saigon Christophe Robert Thresholds and water margins: Binh Hung Hoa cemeteries The entrance gates of the Binh Hung Hoa cemeteries are falling apart. The faded, mouldy yellow paint peels off. Some of the gates date back from the time of the American War. One of them displays a date, 1964, the year President Johnson decided to escalate the war in Vietnam. These are the largest cemeteries in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City, located in one of the poorest areas in the city. The cemeteries are full and

Introduction The contiguous zone is a zone of sea contiguous to and seaward of the territorial sea, extending up to 24 miles from the baselines from which the breadth of the territorial sea is measured (UNCLOS art. 33(2)). States are not obliged to maintain contiguous zones, as they are to maintain territorial seas; and unlike the continental shelf, the contiguous zone is

4 Understanding nuclear-free zones The purpose of this chapter is to identify the properties of an ideal nuclear-weapon-free zone (nuclear-free zone for short) and then to compare it with actual nuclear-free zones in being or seriously proposed. An ideal nuclear-free zone should first of all be worth having; that means it should do a job of work in solving a multilateral security dilemma, by maintaining a desirable level of international security for the participating states in the face of temptations on the part of individual states within the zone to improve

Introduction Previous chapters have looked at the maritime zones where States have sovereignty (internal waters, the territorial sea and, in the case of archipelagic States, archipelagic waters), sovereign rights (the continental shelf) or jurisdiction (the contiguous zone). In this chapter we examine the remaining maritime zone where a coastal State has rights that other

autonomous zones (TAZs) catalysed by activists on the streets were becoming the source of artistic and curatorial inspiration and a kind of academic study, removed from the spaces of authenticity afforded in their actual (versus representational) sphere. Art historian Kirsty Robertson has identified the ‘tension and friction created at the intersections of protest, museums, cities, and culture,’ and how

MUP FINAL PROOF – <STAGE>, 11/01/2013, SPi 4 American ports in the sanitary zone The cholera epidemic of 1892 brought the perceived threat of immigrant disease squarely within the purview of the sanitary system. Yet, over the following decade another factor influenced the increasing role of migrants in the development of port health and its intersection with immigration control. Just as the practice and policies of quarantine and the English System had responded to both internal and external stimuli, the formulation of a rhetoric of risk about migrants was

7 Refugees in the Soviet Occupation Zone/German Democratic Republic Introduction While chapter 2 examined the enormous difficulties resulting from the influx of almost 7.9 million refugees and expellees into the Western Occupation Zones of Germany, the problems facing the German and Allied authorities in the SBZ were in some respects even more formidable. According to the provisional census carried out in December 1945, some 2.5 million refugees were located in the SBZ1 and by April 1949 the figure exceeded 4.3 million (see Table 7.1). At that time, refugees and

The best way to approach the northern Cape frontier zone is via an understanding of the significance of the frontier in South African history. The only way to do this, however, is to come to terms with the concept of the frontier itself, a concept ‘umbilically attached to Frederick Jackson Turner, a historian half a century dead, whose theories have

. Gone is the play’s frivolity, replaced by a mood of profound disappointment and pessimism that is only partly attributable to the film’s post-war context. The final denouement following Orphée’s deliverance from the Zone falls well short of an authentic happy ending. Indeed, Orphée’s return to Eurydice is rather a simulacrum of conjugal bourgeois happiness which, as we shall see, comes at a hefty price, that of amnesia and

CHAPTER 5 Homo- and heterogeneous zones: Irigaray and Mary Daly By serving in this way as mediation from within the [masculine] symbol, the feminine would have no access to sharing, exchanging or coining symbols.... [but] as mediators, women can have within themselves and among themselves a same, [they can have] an Other only if they move out of the existing systems of exchange. (Irigaray 1993a [1984]: 114)1 The method of liberation – castration – exorcism, then, is a becoming process of ‘the Other’ – women – in which we hear and speak our own words.... Women
