(P/B) CRUISING UTOPIA
THE THEN AND THERE OF QUEER FUTURITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0065

A 10th anniversary edition of this field defining work-an intellectual inspiration for a generation of LGBTQ scholars Cruising Utopia arrived in 2009 to insist that queerness must be reimagined as a futurity-bound phenomenon, an insistence on the potentiality of another world that would crack open the pragmatic present. Part manifesto, part love-letter to the past and the future, Jos? Esteban Munoz argued that the here and now were not enough and issued an urgent call for the revivification of the queer political imagination. On the anniv...

(P/B) THE EPISTLE OF FORGIVENESS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0053

Known as "one of the most complex and unusual texts in Arabic literature" (Banipal Magazine), The Epistle of Forgiveness is the lengthy reply by the prolific Syrian poet and prose writer, Abu l-'Ala' al-Ma'arri (d. 449 H/1057 AD), to a letter by an obscure grammarian, Ibn al-Qari. With biting irony, The Epistle of Forgiveness mocks Ibn al-Qari's hypocrisy and sycophancy by imagining he has died and arrived with some difficulty in Heaven, where he meets famous poets and philologists from the past. In al-Maarri's imaginative telling, Ibn al-...

(P/B) RADICAL FEMINISM
A DOCUMENTARY READER
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0057

The second wave of feminism was one of the most significant political and cultural developments of the 1960s and 1970s. Yet the role radical feminism played within the women's movement remains hotly contested. For some, radical feminism has made a lasting contribution to our understanding of male privilege, and the ways the power imbalance between men and women affects the everyday fabric of women's lives. For others, radical feminism represents a reflexive hostility toward men, sex, and heterosexuality, and thus is best ignored or forgott...

(P/B) TITUBA, RELUCTANT WITCH OF SALEM
DEVILISH INDIANS AND PURITAN FANTASIES
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0027

A landmark contribution to women's history that sheds new light on the Salem witch trials and one of its most crucial participants, Tituba of The Crucible In this important book, Elaine Breslaw claims to have rediscovered Tituba, the elusive, mysterious, and often mythologized Indian woman accused of witchcraft in Salem in 1692 and immortalized in Arthur Miller's The Crucible. Reconstructing the life of the slave woman at the center of the notorious Salem witch trials, the book follows Tituba from her likely origins in South America to Bar...

(P/B) MODERN ALBANIA
FROM DICTATORSHIP TO DEMOCRACY IN EUROPE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0048

In the early 1990s, Albania, arguably Europe's most closed and repressive state, began a startling transition out of forty years of self-imposed Communist isolation. Albanians who were not allowed to practice religion, travel abroad, wear jeans, or read "decadent" Western literature began to devour the outside world. They opened cafes, companies, and newspapers. Previously banned rock music blared in the streets. Modern Albania offers a vivid history of the Albanian Communist regime's fall and the trials and tribulations that led the count...

(P/B) DRAWING DEPORTATION
ART AND RESISTANCE AMONG IMMIGRANT CHILDREN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0066

Illustrates how the children of immigrants use art to grapple with issues of citizenship, state violence, and belonging. Young immigrant children often do not have the words to express how their lives are shaped by issues of immigration, legal status, and state-sanctioned violence. Yet they are able to communicate its effects on them using art. Based on ten years of work with immigrant children as young as six years old in Arizona and California- and featuring an analysis of three hundred drawings, theater performances, and family intervie...

(H/B) ETHNIC BOUNDARIES IN TURKISH POLITICS
THE SECULAR KURDISH MOVEMENT AND ISLAM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0063

The Kurdish Movement in Turkey's growing alliance with Islam One of the fault lines of Turkish politics traditionally has been the divide between religious and secular movements. However, as Zeki Sarigil argues, the secular Kurdish movement in Turkey has increasingly become aligned with Islam. As a result, Islam has become part of the movement's political discourse, strategies and actions. Ethnic Boundaries in Turkish Politics traces the evolving relations between the leftist, secular Kurdish movement and Islam, from an apathetic and/or an...

(P/B) WAR SONGS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0054

From the sixth-century highlands of Najd in the Arabian peninsula, on the eve of the advent of Islam, come the strident cries of a legendary warrior and poet. The black outcast son of an Arab father and an Ethiopian slave mother, 'Antarah ibn Shaddad struggled to win the recognition of his father and tribe. He defied social norms and, despite his outcast status, loyally defended his people. 'Antarah captured his tumultuous life in uncompromising poetry that combines flashes of tenderness with blood-curdling violence. His war songs are test...

(P/B) LEGAL EDUCATION AND THE REPRODUCTION OF HIERARCHY
A POLEMIC AGAINST THE SYSTEM
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0060

In 1983 Harvard law professor Duncan Kennedy self-published a biting critique of the law school system called Legal Education and the Reproduction of Hierarchy. This controversial booklet was reviewed in several major law journals-unprecedented for a self-published work-and influenced a generation of law students and teachers. In this well-known critique, Duncan Kennedy argues that legal education reinforces class, race, and gender inequality in our society. However, Kennedy proposes a radical egalitarian alternative vision of what legal e...

(P/B) SAVING FACE
DISFIGUREMENT AND THE POLITICS OF APPEARANCE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0059

The face is a core feature of our physical identity. Our faceis how others identify us and how we think of our 'self'. Yet, human faces arealso functionally essential as mechanisms for communication and as a means ofeating, breathing, and seeing. For these reasons, facial disfigurement canendanger our fundamental notions of self and identity or even be life threatening,at worse. Precisely because it is so difficult to conceal our faces, thedisfigured face compromises appearance, status, and, perhaps, our very way ofbeing in the world. In S...

Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0058

This collection traces the history of psycho-analytically informed thinking about dreams, using selected contributions from Freud to the present to highlight both the legacy of The Interpretation of dreams and the evolving use of the dream as a research tool- of the mind first, later of the psychoanalytic process and of pathology and loge predicaments, and finally as a tool to be integrated with other methods of investigation..(From the publisher)...

(P/B) CRIP THEORY
CULTURAL SIGNS OF QUEERNESS AND DISABILITY
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0045

"Crip Theory" attends to the contemporary cultures of disability and queerness that are coming out all over. Both disability studies and queer theory are centrally concerned with how bodies, pleasures, and identities are represented as "normal" or as abject, but "Crip Theory" is the first book to analyze thoroughly the ways in which these interdisciplinary fields inform each other. Drawing on feminist theory, African American and Latino/a cultural theories, composition studies, film and television studies, and theories of globalization and...

THE RIGHT TO BE FORGOTTEN
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0055

A gripping insight into the digital debate over data ownership, permanence and policy "This is going on your permanent record!" is a threat that has never held more weight than it does in the Internet Age, when information lasts indefinitely. The ability to make good on that threat is as democratized as posting a Tweet or making blog. Data about us is created, shared, collected, analyzed, and processed at an overwhelming scale. The damage caused can be severe, affecting relationships, employment, academic success, and any number of other o...

The debate surrounding the transformation of work at the hands of digital technology and the anxieties brought forth by automation, the sharing economy, and the exploitation of leisure We have been told that digital technology is now threatening the workplace as we know it, that advances in computing and robotics will soon make human labor obsolete, that the sharing economy, exemplified by Uber and Airbnb, will degrade the few jobs that remain, and that the boundaries between work and play are collapsing as Facebook and Instagram infiltra...

(P/B) ESSENTIAL PAPERS ON LITERATURE AND PSYCHOANALYSIS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0052

In a draft attached to a letter to his friend and confidante Wilhelm Fliess (May 31, 1897), Freud develops an idea: The mechanism of fiction is the same as that of hysterical fantasies. He supports this thought with a brief analysis of the biographical sources of Goethe's Werther. A few months later, on October 15, 1897, Freud mails Fliess a detailed account of remembered events from his childhood that, Freud believed, underlined the universality of Oedipus Rex and Hamlet. Freud's foray into literature initiated the beginning of a new crit...

(P/B) LOSING OUR HEADS
BEHEADINGS IN LITERATURE AND CULTURE
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0051

What is the fascination that decollation holds for us, as individuals and as a culture? Why does the idea make us laugh and the act make us close our eyes? Losing Our Heads explores in both artistic and cultural contexts the role of the chopped-off head. It asks why the practice of decapitation was once so widespread, why it has diminished - but not, as scenes from contemporary Iraq show, completely disappeared - and why we find it so peculiarly repulsive that we use it as a principal marker to separate ourselves from a more "barbaric"or "...

(P/B) BIOPOLITICS
AN ADVANCED INTRODUCTION
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0038

The biological features of human beings are now measured, observed, and understood in ways never before thought possible, defining norms, establishing standards, and determining average values of human life. While the notion of "biopolitics" has been linked to everything from rational decision-making and the democratic organization of social life to eugenics and racism, Thomas Lemke offers the very first systematic overview of the history of the notion of biopolitics, exploring its relevance in contemporary theoretical debates and providin...

(P/B) CECIL DREEME
A NOVEL
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 3002-0049

Cecil Dreeme is one of the queerest American novels of the 19th century. This edition, which includes a new introduction contextualizing the sexual history of the period and queer longings of the book, brings a rare, almost forgotten, sensational gothic novel set in New York's West Village back to light. Published posthumously in 1861, the novel centers on Robert Byng, a young man who moves back to New York after traveling abroad and finds himself unmarried and underemployed, adrift in the heathenish dens of lower Manhattan. When he takes...
