Jon Spence's fascinating biography of Jane Austen paints an intimate portrait of the much-loved novelist. Spence's meticulous research has, perhaps most notably, uncovered evidence that Austen and the charming young Irishman Tom Lefroy fell in love at the age of twenty and that the relationship inspired Pride and Prejudice , one of the most celebrated works of fiction ever written. Becoming Jane Austen gives the fullest account we have of the romance, which was more serious and more enduring than previously believed. Seeing this love story in the context of Jane Austen's whole life enables us to appreciate the profound effect the relationship had on her art and on subsequent choices that she made in her life. Full of insight and with an attentive eye for detail, Spence explores Jane Austen's emotional attachments and the personal influences that shaped her as a novelist. His elegant narrative provides a point of entry into Jane Austen's world as she herself perceived and experienced it.

Thus, ABSS researchers found themselves charged with quantifying the unknown, with making the ambiguous concrete. In the thousands of interviews they conducted, the ABSS team asked survivors to relive the moment of the explosion, to recall the exact position of their bodies in relationship to walls or rooftops that could have provided potential shielding from the blast and its associated radiation.

First, the initial years of the ABSS were conducted during the American occupation of Japan, intensifying an already problematic power dynamic between American researchers and Japanese study subjects. American Science and the Survivors of Hiroshima, Many survivors had substantive reasons for keeping their experiences to themselves. Furthermore, while it was possible for epidemiology to make connections between exposure and illness in certain cases, the more subtle, long-term impacts of radiation such as genetic mutation were nearly impossible to detect GAO, Given our estimates of the radiation dosages involved, it has.

Neel et al. Exposed Japanese bodies, reincarnated as bodies of data, were thus used to justify nuclear industrial expansion—to recommend investment in peaceful uses of the atom and to calm fears about above ground nuclear testing. Uncertainty became a management tool in and of itself, a means for generating political and economic value. As both peaceful and military applications of nuclear technology expanded in the early years of the Cold War, the U.

Radiation scientists and practitioners should use Reference Man as the basis from which further adjustments can be made to suit individual situations, as appropriate. As the Committee states, The fact that Reference Man is not closely related to an existing population is not believed to be of any great importance.

Reference Woman, for example, need but emerge from his carefully calculated rib. First, it fails to acknowledge the obduracy of the regulatory structures in which Reference Man is applied.

The physical infrastructure of nuclear industry is similarly intractable. They cannot be continually demolished and rebuilt to account for biomedical discoveries or changes in worker population. Many policy documents acknowledge, however, that it would be inappropriate to use only the male body to estimate radiogenic risk, when women are Rather than simply adopting a standardized female body as the basis for risk calculation, however, policy makers engage in what they consider a suitable compromise: Indeed, this multi-sexed version of Reference Man informs much of U.

So too, the U.

Though the hermaphroditic Reference Man has female reproductive organs, the rest of his body is male. Society and Space 33 5 physiological parameters. The amount he urinates, the fat content of his body, the percentage of water in his cells—each calculated using data for a male body—remains the same.

It uses a language of equality to create what remains an unequal regulatory framework. This is problematic for a number of reasons, most notably because the health risks associated with nuclear industry are not borne equally by all people, and an average masks this uneven distribution. Therefore, policies that rely heavily upon biological parameters in determining risk, ignore and thus reproduce the greater structural inequalities of exposure-related illness.

Of course, it is this simplicity—this abstraction from the lived experience of exposure—that makes the nuclear body politically useful. Indeed, building the nuclear body has required untangling exposure-related illnesses from the social and spatial relations that give them meaning. Because it was designed to be applicable in every radioactive environment, the nuclear body itself is profoundly a-spatial. Critical geographic scholarship has long rejected the notion of a placeless body, pointing instead to the co-constitutive relationship between humans and their daily, lived experiences in space Cresswell, ; Massey, ; Nast and Pile, This dissonance between data and lived experience is problematic for Native American tribes surrounding the Hanford site.

Though in the U. This not only underestimates tribal risk on a practical level by ignoring exposure from activities like wild food harvesting and spiritual ceremonies, but it also renders structural inequalities between the suburbs and the reservation invisible. This means that tribal members might hypothetically not only receive more exposure [than suburban populations] but might also be more sensitive to that exposure.

As Harper et al. So too, risk frameworks that position humans and the environment as distinct and separable units, miss the integration of culture, environment, and body critical to tribal identity and practice. In voicing these concerns, Harris and others are participating in a larger national debate about race, industrial contamination, and the politics of scale.

Since its inception, the Superfund program has drawn criticism from environmental and health activists who argue that remediation policies fail to address the raced and classed geographies of exposure. At the same time, the EPA faced pressure from regulated industries that claimed that Superfund actions were overly protective and lacked consistent and replicable procedures Nakamura and Church, Society and Space 33 5 translate the particularities of place and person into a set of nationally recognized standards and procedures.

Based on a template indigenous person who engages in statistically calculated traditional activities, tribal exposure scenarios often evoke normative categories of Native American identity. Clutching a doll in one hand, the child looks over her shoulder, while her elder stares solemnly across the water. In another example, the same stock image of a Native American has been placed against a backdrop of evergreen trees and purple sky.

Briefcase in hand, the woman cocks her hip to one side while the man looks at her and smiles. Set against a white backdrop, they are encircled by other stock images meant to represent the trappings of suburban life: Harper et al.

However, to communicate the cultural and temporal distinctions that form the heart of their critique, tribes must speak in a standardized language that Superfund legislation can understand. Both are active, outdoor lifestyles, and are consistent with the reasonable maximum exposure RME 12 approach to baseline risk assessment.

In each of these documents, the intimate moments of daily life are given new meaning through statistical translation. So too, bodily functions become forms of evidence in disputes surrounding remediation planning.

In a series of letters, tribes and agencies negotiate this cultural politics of breath. Society and Space 33 5 hour work day. What they did, particularly the Umatilla, is the breathing rate that they chose was from a soldier digging a fox hole, so they were breathing heavy continuously.

In qualifying the heavily breathing Native American body as not physiologically possible, the EPA ignores the calculative anomalies and uncertainties in its own human template.

So too, this statement undermines the notion that Superfund reforms can address the structural inequalities of exposure. Once a Native American experiences excessive exposure, in other words, he or she becomes impossible. Thus, arguments about indigenous breath are but a proxy for much larger stakes. A noun of action, it is the process of reversing damage and setting right, of mending what has been broken.

Plutonium production at Hanford has created a multi-millennial waste stream that will long outlast the United States and its regulatory policies. Moreover, at a global scale, building and testing atomic weapons have spread contamination worldwide infusing the entire biosphere with trace elements of the bomb. Remediation is complete, once it has made contamination livable by fashioning subjects that can survive in the post-nuclear future.

Thus, in her becoming, Jane embodies a social ontology of nuclear survival. As her calculated body and regulated days inform remediation planning, she remakes the very meaning of trauma and recovery in the atomic age. The Department of Energy does not actually expect future humans to maintain the same exact body weight each day of their adult lives, nor does it imagine a society of obsessive compulsive individuals that only eat their fruit in fractions.

Rather, the numbers that delimit Jane are informed by the laws of statistical error—the notion that mathematical order extends to the very edges of human behavior Porter, By living her life in remediated space, then, Jane articulates the conditions of life itself. She creates the social and environmental order necessary to justify risk-based nuclear remediation.

In this article, I have examined several epistemological frames through which we have come to understand nuclear life. Of course, this recognizability is unevenly distributed—some lives are understood as more livable than others Butler, Indeed, as I have demonstrated in this article, the nuclear body has been produced through a marked erasure of certain injuries, exposures, and lifeways.

Thus, in drawing the bounds of radioactive safety, nuclear science and policy have created a human proxy that cannot truly identify the people it purports to protect. As such, seeking change does not simply mean expanding the nuclear body to include more individuals in its particular embrace, but to consider how the very act of its framing has depended upon distributing recognition and protection unevenly. Acknowledgements I extend heartfelt gratitude to Erin Collins, Jake Kosek, and the three anonymous reviewers whose insights and suggestions have greatly improved this piece.

Many thanks as well to thank you the members of U. Society and Space 33 5 feedback on an earlier draft of this article. Finally, I would like to thank the many Hanford community members who have shared meals, stories, and conversations with me over the past decade.

I understand you've visited Hampshire, Mr Lefroy. Last year. Almost three hours. Mr Austen, you're devilishly handsome. A kiss, a kiss.

Becoming Jane Script

Been there. Lefroy, there's a Tahitian Love Fest on at White's. Seen it.

Done that. Or did it do me? Wh-wh-wh-what is a Tahitian Love Fest? I humbly beg your pardon, sir. Theft of one pig is a crime, heinous to be sure, but two pigs You and your kind are a canker on the body social.

And cankers are cut out. Transportation for life. Therefore, order is kept because we have Consider myself. I was born rich, certainly, but I remain rich by virtue of exceptional conduct. I have shown restraint. Your mother, my sister, became poor because she did not She married my father because she loved him. Yes, and that's why you have so many brothers and sisters back there in If you aspire to inherit my property, you must prove yourself more worthy.

But what do we find? We find dissipation wild enough to glut the imaginings of a Hottentot braggadocio. Wild companions, gambling, running around St James's like a neck-or-nothing young blood of the fancy.

Well, you're going to need that because I'm teaching you a lesson. Can you? Thank you. I think you two quite the prettiest sisters in England. Mr Fowle will be enchanted.

San Domingo is half a world away. He'll forget me. Look at the memory you're giving him tonight. His heart will stop at the very sight of you or he doesn't deserve to live. And, yes, I'm aware of the contradiction embodied in that sentence. You look wonderful. Well, hello, John. It's very good to see you. Leave your brother alone. Have you heard? My father's nephew is staying with us. From London. For lateness? Hat off, George.

Hat off, Father's ready. The family is always moving in great ways and small. Firstly, the small. Henry is back from Oxford with his degree, - thank goodness. And our friend John, my new student. Then the great. Cassandra, who is forsaking us for her brother Edward and his family at the coast whilst Robert voyages to the West Indies with Lord Craven's expedition.

Miss Austen, I understand you will be favouring us with a reading? Oh, please, Miss Jane. Oh, yes, Jane, do. Please, Jane. And he's more than welcome. Join us, sir, join us. Green velvet coat. Vastly fashionable. You'll find this vastly amusing. Damn it, man. Well, you may expect to have me pleased from time to time.

Well done, Jane. Well done. She speaks so well. Well, excessively charming, I thought. Well, accomplished enough, perhaps, but a metropolitan mind may be less susceptible to extended, juvenile self-regard. Well, thank you. We're both very proud. Careful there, old fellow. Fine piece, Mr Lefroy. Handled a gun before, have you, Tom? There's some very fine country round about. Very fine. A walk. Miss, I Mr Lefroy. Yes, I know, but I am alone.

Oh, come!

Becoming Jane Austen

What rules of conduct apply in this rural situation? We have been introduced, have we not? What value is there in an introduction when you cannot even remember my name? Indeed, can barely stay awake in my presence. These scruples must seem very provincial to a gentleman with such elevated airs, but I do not devise these rules.

I am merely obliged to obey them. Yes, well, others have detected more. It is celebrated. A novel, perhaps? Being poor, insipid things, read by mere women, even, God forbid, written by mere women? I see, we're talking of your reading. Was I deficient in rapture? In consciousness. It was It was accomplished. It was ironic.

My lords, ladies and gentlemen, the Grand Vizier's Flight. May I have the pleasure of this next dance? Oh, no, we're so late. Take care. Oh, thank you, Tom.

I am mortified. I practised, but it won't stick. What a lovely pair they make. Ah, Sister. What do you make of Mr Lefroy? We're honoured by his presence. You think? He does, with his preening, prancing, Irish-cum-Bond-Street airs. Well, I call it very high indeed, refusing to dance when there are so few gentleman. Where exactly in Ireland does he come from, anyway? Limerick, Miss Austen. I would regard it as a mark of extreme favour if you would stoop to honour me with this next dance.

Ah, then your country reputation depends on my report.

This, by the way, is called a country dance, after the French, contredanse. You judge the company severely, madam. Gives me leave to do the same, sir, and come to a different conclusion. But you are above being pleased. And I think that you, miss, what was it?

I think that you, Miss Austen, consider yourself a cut above the company. You, ma'am, secretly. Was it twice? Careful, Jane, Lucy is right. Mr Lefroy does have a reputation. Presumably as the most disagreeable What is she trying to say? On your toes, gentlemen. No singles. MAN 1: MAN 2: Run for more. I never feel more French than when I watch cricket.

Is he out? I begin to suspect you're flirting with my brother, cousin. Flirting is a woman's trade. One must keep in practice. Well played, Tom. We're depending on you. Best of luck! John Warren! Good luck, Mr Warren. John never was very good, though. Run, Warren, run! Quickly, hurry! Jolly good show! You're out. You're gone, Mr Warren. Prodigious, Tom, prodigious.

On your way. Same again, Tom. Well done, Mr Warren. It's a terrible wicket. I hope you're not too disappointed, Miss Austen. Four more to win, Wisley. Who's next? Come on! She can't WOMAN 1: WOMAN 2: Move in! Go easy, Tom. MAN 3: Be gentle, Lefroy! Bowler's end! Move yourself, you lout! One more! Go, go, go!

Not out. Bad luck, Lefroy. She was so good. She was raised by brothers. Time for a swim, I think. Well played, Henry. Come on, let's go! You think not? Natural enough at Love and sense are enemies at any age. Lucy would marry him tomorrow, and what a terrible husband he would make.

I suppose you mean his reputation. Experience can recommend a man. I've been looking through your book of the wood. Mr White's Natural History. It is too disturbing. Take this observation. What shall we call it?

The history? Condemns you to it and your writing to the status of female accomplishment. If you wish to practise the art of fiction, to be the equal of a masculine author, experience is vital. I see. And what qualifies you to offer this advice? I know more of the world. Enough to know that your horizons must be By a very dangerous young man, one who has, no doubt, infected the hearts of many a young But why? Vice leads to difficulty, virtue to reward.

Bad characters come to bad ends. But in life, bad characters often thrive. Take yourself. A novel should somehow reveal the true source of our actions. Well, it seems to me, sir, that your hero's very vigorous feelings caused him and everyone connected with him a great deal of trouble. Ah, well, if the book has troubled you All sorts of trouble. Laverton Fair.

Vastly entertaining. Monstrous good idea, Jane. Yes, Miss Austen, not exactly your usual society, I'd say. Show a little imagination, Mr Lefroy. And freedom, the freedom of men. Do not you envy it?

But I have the intense pleasure of observing it so closely. Now, there's a fool, to go to it with a professional. Yes, a vastly fashionable pastime in London.

Beating a man to a pulp. What are you doing? Make way! Coming through. Five shillings on the gent. Who will take it? You, sir? That's the ticket. Have that.

Go on, hit him! Come on, Lefroy, hit him, man! Come on, Lefroy! Up, sir. I'm afraid it's damn low water with me.
