(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) QUESTIONS OF TRAVEL
POSTMODERN DISCOURSES OF DISPLACEMENT
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0117

Contemporary theory is replete with metaphors of travel-displacement, diaspora, borders, exile, migration, nomadism, homelessness, and tourism to name a few. In Questions of Travel, Caren Kaplan explores the various metaphoric uses of travel and displacement in literary and feminist theory, traces the political implications of this "traveling theory," and shows how various discourses of displacement link, rather than separate, modernism and postmodernism. Addressing a wide range of writers, including Paul Fussell, Edward Said, James Cliffo...

(P/B) LENIN RELOADED
TOWARD A POLITICS OF TRUTH
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0028

Lenin Reloaded is a rallying call by some of the world’s leading Marxist intellectuals for renewed attention to the significance of Vladimir Lenin. The volume’s editors explain that it was Lenin who made Karl Marx’s thought explicitly political, who extended it beyond the confines of Europe, who put it into practice. They contend that a focus on Lenin is urgently needed now, when global capitalism appears to be the only game in town, the liberal-democratic system seems to have been settled on as the optimal political organization of societ...

(P/B) ANIMALS AND WOMEN
FEMINIST THEORITICAL EXPLORATIONS
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0005

Animals and Women is a collection of pioneering essays that explores the theoretical connections between feminism and animal defense. Offering a feminist perspective on the status of animals, this unique volume argues persuasively that both the social construction and oppressions of women are inextricably connected to the ways in which we comprehend and abuse other species. Furthermore, it demonstrates that such a focus does not distract from the struggle for women's rights, but rather contributes to it. This wide-ranging multidisciplinary...

(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) VIBRANT MATTER
A POLITICAL ECOLOGY OF THINGS
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0113

In Vibrant Matter the political theorist Jane Bennett, renowned for her work on nature, ethics, and affect, shifts her focus from the human experience of things to things themselves. Bennett argues that political theory needs to do a better job of recognizing the active participation of nonhuman forces in events. Toward that end, she theorizes a "vital materiality" that runs through and across bodies, both human and nonhuman. Bennett explores how political analyses of public events might change were we to acknowledge that agency always eme...

(P/B) NEW MATERIALISMS
ONTOLOGY, AGENCY, AND POLITICS
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0116

New Materialisms brings into focus and explains the significance of the innovative materialist critiques that are emerging across the social sciences and humanities. By gathering essays that exemplify the new thinking about matter and processes of materialization, this important collection shows how scholars are reworking older materialist traditions, contemporary theoretical debates, and advances in scientific knowledge to address pressing ethical and political challenges. In the introduction, Diana Coole and Samantha Frost highlight comm...

(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) FEMINISM WITHOUT BORDERS
DECOLONIZING THEORY, PRACTICING SOLIDARITY
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0052

Bringing together classic and new writings of the trailblazing feminist theorist Chandra Talpade Mohanty, Feminism without Borders addresses some of the most pressing and complex issues facing contemporary feminism. Forging vital links between daily life and collective action and between theory and pedagogy, Mohanty has been at the vanguard of Third World and international feminist thought and activism for nearly two decades. This collection highlights the concerns running throughout her pioneering work: the politics of difference and soli...

(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) CRITIQUE OF BLACK REASON
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0092

In Critique of Black Reason eminent critic Achille Mbembe offers a capacious genealogy of the category of Blackness - from the Atlantic slave trade to the present - to critically reevaluate history, racism, and the future of humanity. Mbembe teases out the intellectual consequences of the reality that Europe is no longer the world's center of gravity while mapping the relations among colonialism, slavery, and contemporary financial and extractive capital. Tracing the conjunction of Blackness with the biological fiction of race, he theorize...

(P/B) LEFT OF KARL MARX
THE POLITICAL LIFE OF BLACK COMMUNIST CLAUDIA JONES
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0114

In Left of Karl Marx, Carole Boyce Davies assesses the activism, writing, and legacy of Claudia Jones (1915-1964), a pioneering Afro-Caribbean radical intellectual, dedicated communist, and feminist. Jones is buried in London's Highgate Cemetery, to the left of Karl Marx-a location that Boyce Davies finds fitting given how Jones expanded Marxism-Leninism to incorporate gender and race in her political critique and activism. Claudia Cumberbatch Jones was born in Trinidad. In 1924, she moved to New York, where she lived for the next thirty ...

(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) IMMEDIATIONS
THE HUMANITARIAN IMPULSE IN DOCUMENTARY
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0111

Endangered life is often used to justify humanitarian media intervention, but what if suffering humanity is both the fuel and outcome of such media representations? Pooja Rangan argues that this vicious circle is the result of immediation, a prevailing documentary ethos that seeks to render human suffering urgent and immediate at all costs. Rangan interrogates this ethos in films seeking to "give a voice to the voiceless," an established method of validating the humanity of marginalized subjects, including children, refugees, autistics, an...

(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) PUNISHING THE POOR
THE NEOLIBERAL GOVERNMENT OF SOCIAL INSECURITY
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0050

The punitive turn of penal policy in the United States after the acme of the Civil Rights movement responds not to rising criminal insecurity but to the social insecurity spawned by the fragmentation of wage labor and the shakeup of the ethnoracial hierarchy. It partakes of a broader reconstruction of the state wedding restrictive "workfare" and expansive "prisonfare" under a philosophy of moral behaviorism. This paternalist program of penalization of poverty aims to curb the urban disorders wrought by economic deregulation and to impose p...

(P/B) THE BORDERS OF EUROPE
AUTONOMY OF MIGRATION, TACTICS OF BORDERING
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0110

In recent years the borders of Europe have been perceived as being besieged by a staggering refugee and migration crisis. The contributors to The Borders of "Europe" see this crisis less as an incursion into Europe by external conflicts than as the result of migrants exercising their freedom of movement. Addressing the new technologies and technical forms European states use to curb, control, and constrain what contributors to the volume call the autonomy of migration, this book shows how the continent's amorphous borders present a premier...

(P/B) CULTURE POWER PLACE
EXPLORATIONS IN CRITICAL ANTHROPOLOGY
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0029

Anthropology has traditionally relied on a spatially localized society or culture as its object of study. The essays in Culture, Power, Place demonstrate how in recent years this anthropological convention and its attendant assumptions about identity and cultural difference have undergone a series of important challenges. In light of increasing mass migration and the transnational cultural flows of a late capitalist, postcolonial world, the contributors to this volume examine shifts in anthropological thought regarding issues of identity, ...

(P/B) ANIMACIES
BIOPOLITICS, RACIAL MATTERING, AND QUEER AFFECT
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0104

In Animacies, Mel Y. Chen draws on recent debates about sexuality, race, and affect to examine how matter that is considered insensate, immobile, or deathly animates cultural lives. Toward that end, Chen investigates the blurry division between the living and the dead, or that which is beyond the human or animal. Within the field of linguistics, animacy has been described variously as a quality of agency, awareness, mobility, sentience, or liveness. Chen turns to cognitive linguistics to stress how language habitually differentiates the an...

(P/B) VULNERABILITY IN RESISTANCE
Εκδότης: DUKE UNIVERSITY PRESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 1026-0108

Vulnerability and resistance have often been seen as opposites, with the assumption that vulnerability requires protection and the strengthening of paternalistic power at the expense of collective resistance. Focusing on political movements and cultural practices in different global locations, including Turkey, Palestine, France, and the former Yugoslavia, the contributors to Vulnerability in Resistance articulate an understanding of the role of vulnerability in practices of resistance. They consider how vulnerability is constructed, invok...
