Gay and Lesbian Cultures in France
62,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This volume of essays originated in but is not restricted to the proceedings of the 'Gay Cultures in France' conference held at the University of Stirling in April 1999. While the focus is clearly on French theory and experience, the first section of the volume transcends national borders, as do many elements of the subsequent chapters. The chapters examine various dimensions of the lives of gay men and women in contemporary France, both as subjects and objects of text (written, cinematic, and graphic), of political discourse, of social formations, and, in the era of AIDS, of medical and health-care institutions. The book is divided into three sections. The first provides theoretical overviews from intellectuals of international distinction: David Halperin and Christopher Robinson. The second section deals with social, political, and health-care issues of major significance to French gay men and women. The third, and longest, section, explores a range of textual inscriptions - from film, literature, theory, and bande dessinée - of lesbian and gay desire and experience.

Critical Issues in Peace and Education
52,90 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

This collection asks theorists and educational practitioners from around the world influenced by the schools of feminist pedagogy, critical pedagogy, anti-racist or postcolonial pedagogy, and gay and lesbian pedagogy to reflect upon the possibilities of articulating a 'curriculum of difference' that critically examines the cross-cultural issues of peace and education that are at the forefront of global education issues today. Contributors examine the conceptualizations of peace and education within, between, and across cultures through the conceptualization of pedagogical possibilities that create an openness toward the horizons of the other within communal formations of difference permeating the public sphere. They take up new ways of questions related to globalization, difference, community, identity, peace, democracy, sexuality, ethics, conflict, politics, feminism, technology, language rights, cultural politics, Marxism, and deconstruction that have a vast literary history in and outside the area of 'education.' This volume makes a significant contribution to the question of difference and its quintessential role in peace education for the new millennium.

“These fine scholars argue persuasively that the next new direction in the field of Ethnic Studies should be to study race relationally: an old idea made new again by building on the robust scholarship produced in comparative and transnational ethnic studies during the past three decades or so.”—Evelyn Hu-DeHart, Professor of History, American Studies, and Ethnic Studies, Brown University “Studying race as a relational formation is more than powerful—it is necessary. This important gathering of essays challenges even the most radical thinkers on race to repattern the ways we understand social justice, human rights, and struggles that form in mutual action toward a common good. Together, these essays refuse the dominance of whiteness in studies and enactments of racial relations, generating new theories and conversations that reveal historic and powerful connections among freedom seekers across the globe.”—Gaye Theresa Johnson, author of Spaces of Conflict, Sounds of Solidarity and coeditor of  Futures of Black Radicalism “ Studying Race Relationally demonstrates beautifully the insights produced by examining systems of race alongside each other. This generative, exciting volume offers essential contributions to critical Ethnic Studies and American Studies.”—Emily K. Hobson, author of Lavender and Red: Liberation and Solidarity in the Gay and Lesbian Left “What if we could think about race and racism differently? Go beyond thinking about race mainly in terms of whiteness and its ‘others’? Dispense with fatuous denunciatoions of ‘groupism’ and recognize the centrality of racialization in the construction of our world? In Relational Formations of Race, some of our most profound race theorists do just that. They explore how racial identities and racialized groups interact and overlap. They show how racial formation involves permanent conflict with the U.S. empire-state and simultaneously constitutes that state. Exclusion and inclusion; conquest and social control; struggles over racialized labor, gender, migration, and, indeed, U.S. imperialism and ‘nation-building’—all are reconceptualized here. Our understanding of race and racism is both deepened and broadened by this exceptional book, which will certainly become a central text across the disciplines. A tour de force and a must for course adoption!”—Howard Winant, coauthor of Racial Formation in the United States “This is a must-read for everyone in American Studies, Ethnic Studies, and Africana Studies, and, indeed, for anyone who wants to understand how and why difference and disadvantage are created and perpetuated, and how we are all, in some way, complicit in this creation and perpetuation. It is destined to become a big-hearted model of scholarly praxis on race, a core text for the next generation of young scholars who recognize that activism and deeper understanding are joined at the hip.”—Matthew Pratt Guterl, author of Josephine Baker and the Rainbow Tribe
