s your bloody pigtail?: Liberalism, Empire, and the Chinese Labour Question

Description

Professor Glover outlined the moral panic around aliens and Chinese labour in the 1906 election, relating the debate to the 1905 Aliens Act and to Chinese indentured layout to South Africa. Migration scholars and NGOs have often sought to disassociate popular associations between criminality and immigration: migrants are not criminals, nor are they necessarily more likely to commit crime. But this risks ignoring important relationships between immigration and criminality, both 'immigrant' and 'criminal' for example, are set in opposition to the (good) citizen, both are important administrative categories for states, and comprise groups upon whom the state can exercise significant degrees of coercion. Both are highly racialised. There are also historical continuities: mobility has long Wales; http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/2.0/uk/

George Eliot 2. Genre and Justice

Description

The second lecture in the series on George Eliot considers how narrative justice operates in relation to the genres of comedy and tragedy, particularly in 'Adam Bede' and 'Daniel Deronda'. The lecture identifies the disproportionate amount of suffering experienced by the women in Eliot's fiction in comparison to the men; an issue which has long been a bone of contention for feminist critics. Dr Catherine Brown discusses Eliot's belief that one's happiness and contentment should always be qualified by the knowledge that, at any given moment, others are experiencing misery.
