“Holothurians, or sea cucumbers, are an abundant and diverse group of worm-like, soft-bodied echinoderms. Their modified elongate pentamerous bodies are beautifully suited to be vacuum cleaners of the sea – swallowing huge amounts of sediment, digesting the organic material then pooping out the sediment like a conveyor belt! What a life! 😁👌🏼 Despite appearing to be completely soft bodied most species do have a skeleton – hundreds of microscopic ossicles made of calcite embedded in the body wall. These come in a wide variety of shapes, including this beautiful tiny (0.4 mm across) wheel shaped sclerite from a modern species of Chirodota.”

The culture of English obscenity law, Professor Chris Hilliard – WOAE070

LCL

English obscenity law from the Victorian period in the mid-nineteenth century was unevenly applied to literature available to working class audiences. Hierarchical thinking and elitism in the application of the law was enduring and is evident as late as 1960 during the Lady Chatterley’s Lover trial. This is an idea explored in a forthcoming book by Professor Chris Hilliard from the University of Sydney. Chris is researching censorship and cultural change in Britain from the Victorian period to the 1970s.
