(P/B) THE MIGRANT IMAGE
THE ART AND POLITICS OF DOCUMENTARY DURING GLOBAL CRISIS
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0073

In The Migrant Image T. J. Demos examines the ways contemporary artists have reinvented documentary practices in their representations of mobile lives: refugees, migrants, the stateless, and the politically dispossessed. He presents a sophisticated analysis of how artists from the United States, Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East depict the often ignored effects of globalization and the ways their works connect viewers to the lived experiences of political and economic crisis. Demos investigates the cinematic approaches Steve McQuee...

(P/B) Unspooled
How the Cassette Made Music Shareable
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0140

Well into the new millennium, the analog cassette tape continues to claw its way back from obsolescence. New cassette labels emerge from hipster enclaves while the cassette's likeness pops up on T-shirts, coffee mugs, belt buckles, and cell phone cases. In Unspooled, Rob Drew traces how a lowly, hissy format that began life in office dictation machines and cheap portable players came to be regarded as a token of intimate expression through music and a source of cultural capital. Drawing on sources ranging from obscure music zines to transc...

(P/B) Geontologies
A Requiem to Late Liberalism
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0139

In Geontologies Elizabeth A. Povinelli continues her project of mapping the current conditions of late liberalism by offering a bold retheorization of power. Finding Foucauldian biopolitics unable to adequately reveal contemporary mechanisms of power and governance, Povinelli describes a mode of power she calls geontopower, which operates through the regulation of the distinction between Life and Nonlife and the figures of the Desert, the Animist, and the Virus. Geontologies examines this formation of power from the perspective of Indigeno...

(P/B) Sylvia Wynter
On Being Human as Praxis
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0138

The Jamaican writer and cultural theorist Sylvia Wynter is best known for her diverse writings that pull together insights from theories in history, literature, science, and black studies, to explore race, the legacy of colonialism, and representations of humanness. Sylvia Wynter: On Being Human as Praxis is a critical genealogy of Wynter's work, highlighting her insights on how race, location, and time together inform what it means to be human. The contributors explore Wynter's stunning reconceptualization of the human in relation to conc...

(P/B) WHERE IS ANA MENDIETA?
IDENTITY, PERFORMATIVITY, AND EXILE
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0132

Ana Mendieta, a Cuban-born artist who lived in exile in the United States, was one of the most provocative and complex personalities of the 1970s' artworld. In Where Is Ana Mendieta? art historian Jane Blocker provides an in-depth critical analysis of Mendieta's diverse body of work. Although her untimely death in 1985 remains shrouded in controversy, her life and artistic legacy provide a unique vantage point from which to consider the history of performance art, installation, and earth works, as well as feminism, multiculturalism, and po...

(P/B) THE QUEER ART OF FAILURE
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0102

The Queer Art of Failure is about finding alternatives - to conventional understandings of success in a heteronormative, capitalist society; to academic disciplines that confirm what is already known according to approved methods of knowing; and to cultural criticism that claims to break new ground but cleaves to conventional archives. Judith Halberstam proposes "low theory" as a mode of thinking and writing that operates at many different levels at once. Low theory is derived from eccentric archives. It runs the risk of not being taken se...

(P/B) Gaza on Screen
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0137

Gaza's long association with resistance and humanitarian need has generated a complex and ever shifting range of visual material, comprising not just news reports and documentaries, but also essay, experimental, and fiction films, militant videos, and solidarity images. Contributors to Gaza on Screen, who include scholars and Gazan filmmakers, explore the practice, production, and impact of film and videos from and about the Gaza Strip. Conceptualizing screens-both large and small-as tools for mediation that are laden with power, the volum...

(P/B) TARRYING WITH THE NEGATIVE
KANT, HEGEL, AND THE CRITIQUE OF IDEOLOGY
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0006

In the space of barely more than five years, with the publication of four pathbreaking books, Slavoj Zizek has earned the reputation of being one of the most arresting, insightful, and scandalous thinkers in recent memory. Perhaps more than any other single author, his writings have constituted the most compelling evidence available for recognizing Jacques Lacan as the preemient philosopher of our time. In Tarrying with the Negative, Zizek challenges the contemporary critique of ideology, and in doing so opens the way for a new understandi...

(P/B) Necropolitics
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0134

In Necropolitics Achille Mbembe, a leader in the new wave of francophone critical theory, theorizes the genealogy of the contemporary world, a world plagued by ever-increasing inequality, militarization, enmity, and terror as well as by a resurgence of racist, fascist, and nationalist forces determined to exclude and kill. He outlines how democracy has begun to embrace its dark side-what he calls its "nocturnal body"-which is based on the desires, fears, affects, relations, and violence that drove colonialism. This shift has hollowed out d...

(P/B) STOLEN LIFE
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0136

In Stolen Life-the second volume in his landmark trilogy consent not to be a single being-Fred Moten undertakes an expansive exploration of blackness as it relates to black life and the collective refusal of social death. The essays resist categorization, moving from Moten's opening meditation on Kant, Olaudah Equiano, and the conditions of black thought through discussions of academic freedom, writing and pedagogy, non-neurotypicality, and uncritical notions of freedom. Moten also models black study as a form of social life through an eng...

(H/B) Habeas Viscus
Racializing Assemblages, Biopolitics, and Black Feminist Theories of the Human
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0133

Habeas Viscus focuses attention on the centrality of race to notions of the human. Alexander G. Weheliye develops a theory of "racializing assemblages," taking race as a set of sociopolitical processes that discipline humanity into full humans, not-quite-humans, and nonhumans. This disciplining, while not biological per se, frequently depends on anchoring political hierarchies in human flesh. The work of the black feminist scholars Hortense Spillers and Sylvia Wynter is vital to Weheliye's argument. Particularly significant are their contr...

(P/B) THE PROMISE OF HAPPINESS
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0131

The Promise of Happiness is a provocative cultural critique of the imperative to be happy. It asks what follows when we make our desires and even our own happiness conditional on the happiness of others: "I just want you to be happy"; "I'm happy if you're happy." Combining philosophy and feminist cultural studies, Sara Ahmed reveals the affective and moral work performed by the "happiness duty," the expectation that we will be made happy by taking part in that which is deemed good, and that by being happy ourselves, we will make others hap...

(P/B) LIVING A FEMINIST LIFE
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0100

In Living a Feminist Life Sara Ahmed shows how feminist theory is generated from everyday life and the ordinary experiences of being a feminist at home and at work. Building on legacies of feminist of color scholarship in particular, Ahmed offers a poetic and personal meditation on how feminists become estranged from worlds they critique - often by naming and calling attention to problems - and how feminists learn about worlds from their efforts to transform them. Ahmed also provides her most sustained commentary on the figure of the femin...

(P/B) QUEER PHENOMENOLOGY
ORIENTATIONS, OBJECTS, OTHERS
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0103

In this groundbreaking work, Sara Ahmed demonstrates how queer studies can put phenomenology to productive use. Focusing on the "orientation" aspect of "sexual orientation" and the "orient" in "orientalism," Ahmed examines what it means for bodies to be situated in space and time. Bodies take shape as they move through the world directing themselves toward or away from objects and others. Being "orientated" means feeling at home, knowing where one stands, or having certain objects within reach. Orientations affect what is proximate to the ...

(P/B) ON BEING INCLUDED
RACISM AND DIVERSITY IN INSTITUTIONAL LIFE
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0112

What does diversity do? What are we doing when we use the language of diversity? Sara Ahmed offers an account of the diversity world based on interviews with diversity practitioners in higher education, as well as her own experience of doing diversity work. Diversity is an ordinary, even unremarkable, feature of institutional life. Yet diversity practitioners often experience institutions as resistant to their work, as captured through their use of the metaphor of the "brick wall." On Being Included offers an explanation of this apparent p...

(P/B) NO MACHOS OR POP STARS
WHEN THE LEEDS ART EXPERIMENT WENT PUNK
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0126

After punk's arrival in 1976, many art students in the northern English city of Leeds traded their paintbrushes for guitars and synthesizers. In bands ranging from Gang of Four, Soft Cell, and Delta 5 to the Mekons, Scritti Politti, and Fad Gadget, these artists-turned-musicians challenged the limits of what was deemed possible in rock and pop music. Taking avant-garde ideas to the record-buying public, they created Situationist antirock and art punk, penned deconstructed pop ditties about Jacques Derrida, and took the aesthetics of collag...

(P/B) BIOPOLITICS
A READER
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0081

This anthology collects the texts that defined the concept of biopolitics, which has become so significant throughout the humanities and social sciences today. The far-reaching influence of the biopolitical - the relation of politics to life, or the state to the body - is not surprising given its centrality to matters such as healthcare, abortion, immigration, and the global distribution of essential medicines and medical technologies. Michel Foucault gave new and unprecedented meaning to the term "biopolitics" in his 1976 essay "Right of...

(P/B) FEMALE MASCULINITY
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0125

In this quintessential work of queer theory, Jack Halberstam takes aim at the protected status of male masculinity and shows that female masculinity has offered a distinct alternative to it for well over two centuries. Demonstrating how female masculinity is not some bad imitation of virility, but a lively and dramatic staging of hybrid and minority genders, Halberstam catalogs the diversity of gender expressions among masculine women from nineteenth-century pre-lesbian practices to contemporary drag king performances. Through detailed tex...

(P/B) CRUEL OPTIMISM
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0130

A relation of cruel optimism exists when something you desire is actually an obstacle to your flourishing. Offering bold new ways of conceiving the present, Lauren Berlant describes the cruel optimism that has prevailed since the 1980s, as the social-democratic promise of the postwar period in the United States and Europe has retracted. People have remained attached to unachievable fantasies of the good life-with its promises of upward mobility, job security, political and social equality, and durable intimacy-despite evidence that liberal...
