POLITICS TAUGHT TO MY GRANDCHILDREN
A Bildungsroman about Europe

 

 

Chapter II- THE TONGUE EVER TURNS TO THE ACHING TOOTH

by Sonia Antinori

Four elderly ladies living in South Wales, each awarded some kind of recognition of merit, are invited to a popular TV talk show on the day after the European elections. Their discussions on national, linguistic and territorial identity, on community and on the sense of belonging melt down amidst the hope-sapping yak of the television medium. A playlet about modernity’s contradictions.

 

 

Chapter VII - OF FAITH AND FAIRY DUST

by Heidrun Kaletsch

The Welsh miners’ strike and the tug-of-war between trade unions and the Thatcher government. A crisis of the productive system gives rise to an open struggle between workers and administrators, set against the question of the identity of UK minorities and of working rights. All this while the press and the other media cast their distorting shadow.

 

 

Chapter VIII - NO GUTS, NO GLORY

by Katja von der Ropp
A trade unionist of Irish descent looks for his homeland of choice, between an adventurous past in the merchant navy and fights for the independence of African populations. The moral bequest of a man scarred by a tragic experience of injustice, set in landscapes that betray residues of the British colonialist tradition.
