BOOK PRESENTATION: ECHTE ENGLÄNDER: BRITAIN AFTER BREXIT BY TESSA SZYSZKOWITZ

GIDEON RACHMAN IN CONVERSATION WITH THE AUTHOR

Great Britain is shifting into Brexit gear, but where will the journey end? Europe’s third biggest nation after Germany and France is seeking a new future outside of the European Union. How will this future look like? Will Britain choose to establish Empire 2.0 and try to regain its importance as global power? Or will Great Britain shrink to Little England? In talks and trips across the United Kingdom the author and journalist Tessa Szyszkowitz is looking at the options for the reinvention of a nation.

ELLEKE BOEHMER
AFTER THE EMPIRE: MASCULINITY AND POWER

Elleke Boehmer, Professor of World Literature in English in the English Faculty, University of Oxford, and currently Director of the Oxford Research Centre in the Humanities (TORCH). She is a founding figure in the field of colonial and postcolonial studies, and internationally known for her research in anglophone literatures of empire and anti-empire. She is an acclaimed novelist and short story writer, most recently of The Shouting in the Dark (2015).

Why do men commit these crimes? “Because they can,” says Elleke Boehmer. “It’s still in some senses socially sanctioned. Male violence against women is triggered by feelings of defensiveness, threat and insecurity.” She links some of the phenomenon to men losing their position as breadwinner, or their sense of power. “So you lash out in the way you know best, that has been socially sanctioned in the past.” Deindustrialisation, change of political regime, conflict – “In the end, it leads to women’s bodies bearing the brunt of male violence.”
