CULTURAL STUDIES 2018


"

I have published with many publishers... and I think Rowman & Littlefield International are the best.’ —Maria Tamboukou, author of Sewing, Fighting, and Writing

INTRODUCTION Welcome to the Rowman and Littlefield International Cultural Studies catalogue. We’re proud of our progressive, agendasetting publications and we continue to support incisive and interdisciplinary publishing. Interdisciplinarity is not a goal in itself: it is a method and tool to arrive at a greater integrative solution, a forward movement of syncretic beauty. That, in our monographs, textbooks and reference works, is what we strive to do. On a practical level, we’re committed to making ebooks available at paperback prices from initial publication, to supporting and understanding open access, and to helping our authors improve their impact. Intellectually, we hold up high standards of peer review and strong production values. Cultural studies has a huge remit – and a huge responsibility – and holding a mirror up to society is part of that scholarly obligation. I would be delighted if you were to join us on that mission, and please do get in touch to discuss your publishing plans and ideas.

As its organising principle, the book takes Fredric Jameson’s canonical arguments about the waning of historicity, affect and depth in the postmodern culture of western capitalist societies in the twentieth century, and reevaluates and reconceptualises these notions in a twenty-first century context.

ASIAN CULTURAL STUDIES SERIES

MEDIA, CULTURE AND COMMUNICATION IN ASIA-PACIFIC SOCIETIES Series edited by Terence Lee and Susan Leong

The Asia-Pacific region houses some of the richest and most diverse cultural, media and social practices in the world, with much of it yet to be analysed or uncovered.

The aim of this series is to support this quest by enabling high-quality accessible and emergent scholarship on culture, media and communication in the Asia-Pacific to be published. It showcases innovative research produced in the region to a global readership with an eye to generating dialogue that will spark new ideas and enhance social and cultural understandings.

ACTIVISM AND DIGITAL CULTURE IN AUSTRALIA By Debbie Rodan and Jane Mummery

By Dr. Sukhmani Khorana

“This timely and cutting-edge volume makes an invaluable contribution to understanding the opportunities and challenges of the digital age for activist groups.

AUSTERITY AND WORKING-CLASS RESISTANCE

CONTEMPORARY BOAT MIGRATION

Survival, Disruption and Creation in Hard Times

Edited by Elaine Burroughs and Kira Williams

Edited by Adam Fishwick and Heather Connolly

“This book offers an original and interdisciplinary take on migration by considering people who move from one country to another via sea routes. The chapters in this edited collection provide rich empirical insights, comprehensive examinations of legal regimes, and analyses of representations of people who migrate by boat. This volume marks an important contribution to the understudied area of migration by sea.” —Tanya Golash-Boza, Professor of Sociology, University of California, Merced

“Austerity and Working-Class Resistance provides a fascinating and original account of the often denied practices of resistance, which at different spaces and times, within and outside Europe, have followed one of the most critical times of our modern history, including the economic, social, political and financial crises. It is also a riveting read, rich with fascinating human stories.” —Valeria Pulignano, Professor of Sociology, KU Leuven Adam Fishwick is a Senior Lecturer in Urban Studies and Public Policy in the Department of Politics and Public Policy at De Montfort University, Leicester, UK.

DECRYPTING POWER Edited by Ricardo Sanín-Restrepo

IDEOLOGY AND THE FUTURE OF PROGRESSIVE SOCIAL MOVEMENTS

Decrypting Power aims to reach a unifying concept that allows the connection of the fundamental theses stemming from critical legal studies, Subaltern studies, decolonization, law and society, global political economy, critical geopolitics and theories of de-coloniality. This volume proposes that this concept is the ‘encryption of power’, a category of analysis that reveals the weakness of political liberalism when it takes the place of the legitimate fundament of democracy, as well as its consummate capacity to conceal new mechanisms of global power.

By Rafal Soborski

Ricardo Sanín-Restrepo is a member of the Caribbean Philosophical Association and a professor of legal and political theory at several institutions across Latin America.

“An important critique of anti-neoliberal movements since the financial crisis and austerity. Soborski questions the populist, prefigurative and networking resistance that has generated much excitement. For academics, students and a wider audience interested in change, a concise, readable and thoughtprovoking case for putting ideology back at the centre of left politics.” —Luke Martell, Professor of Political Sociology, University of Sussex

POOR NEWS Media Discourses of Poverty in Times of Austerity By Steven Harkins and Jairo Lugo-Ocando “This book is timely and makes a valuable contribution to a lacuna in the field i.e. how journalists have over time engaged with value-laden and emotive issues of poverty. The authors have done particularly well in teasing out the ideational dimensions of the reporting, the nuances in coverage and contentious policies such as the “bedroom tax” and fuel poverty.” —Anita Howarth, Senior Lecturer, Department of Social Sciences, Media and Communication at Brunel University London Steven Harkins obtained his ESRC funded PhD on print journalism representations of poverty at the University of Sheffield, UK.

RESEARCHING RESISTANCE AND SOCIAL CHANGE A Critical Approach to Theory and Practice | Volume I By Mikael Baaz, Mona Lilja and Stellan Vinthagen “In an era of new authoritarianism and popular resistance it is hardly possible for this text to be timelier. Long overdue, this well-crafted text provides some coherence, most importantly a sophisticated theoretical integrity and congruity, to the (rather) far-flung field of what might be fruitfully understood as resistance studies. Indispensable, invigorating, and inspirational, this ambitious and engaging work limns out a field in progress, opening up a critical conversation about where we are going and how.—Eric Selbin, Professor of Political Science and Holder of the Lucy King Brown Chair, Southwestern University Mikael Baaz is Associate Professor in Peace and Conflict Studies and a Senior Lecturer in International Law at the School of Business, Economics and Law, the University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

The series edited by Ruth Sanz Sabido and Stuart Price

Series edited by Ian Bruff (Managing Editor), Julie Cupples, Gemma Edwards, Laura Horn, Simon Springer and Jacqui True

Protest, Media and Culture publishes edited collections and monographs dedicated to the study and analysis of an irrepressible phenomenon: the worldwide resurgence of social, cultural, political and economic discontent. The series makes particular reference to the mediated character of protest and dissent, but also encompasses theoretical, organisational and practical issues, and includes both historical and contemporary examples.

Transforming Capitalism is rooted in the vibrant, broad and pluralistic debates spanning a range of approaches in a number of fields and disciplines. As such, it will appeal to scholars working in sociology, geography, cultural studies, international studies, development, social theory, politics, labour and welfare studies, economics, anthropology, law, and more.

CULTURE AND CRITICAL THEORY

ALTERITY AND CRITICISM

AT THE LIMITS OF THE POLITICAL

Tracing Time in Modern Literature

Affect, Life, Things

By Wiliam D. Melaney

By Inna Viriasova

“Melaney intricately connects the dissolution of subject-centered consciousness, interrupted by "alterity" as audaciously expressed in modern literature, to reflections of phenomenology, semiotics, hermeneutics, and psychoanalysis. He highlights broken circuits of reflexivity as key to reading in the mode that in the modern period gives us "literature" – provocatively presented as a creation of criticism.” —William Franke, Professor of Comparative Literature, Vanderbilt University

“In this book, Inna Viriasova competently and brightly retraces the most influential theories of the impolitical, connecting them to questions of great relevance: with respect to political action, how does what is outside its external borders act? How does the political ‘outside’ establish itself and what effects does it produce when it is situated into it? In a substantial philosophical weave intertwining all contemporary thought, the author offers original and innovative answers to these questions.” —Roberto Esposito, Professor of Theoretical Philosophy, Scuola Normale Superiore, Italy

William D. Melaney is Professor of English and Comparative Literature at the American University in Cairo, Egypt. He is the author of After Ontology: Literary Theory and Modernist Poetics and Material Difference: Modernism and the Allegories of Discourse.

CONTINGENT COMPUTATION Abstraction, Experience, and Indeterminacy in Computational Aesthetics

COMEDY AND CRITICAL THOUGHT Laughter as Resistance Edited by Iain MacKenzie, Fred Francis and Krista Bonello Rutter Giappone “This fascinating book draws on current and recent critical theories to frame and contextualise individual chapters on - amongst others - satire, stand-up, cartoons, slapstick and the visual arts. The theories are clearly explained, often emphasising the playful uses of humour and comedy as a critical tool. Reading it has opened up new avenues in my own thinking about comedy.” —Dr. Richard Cuming, Clown Advisor and Senior Lecturer in Performing Arts, University of Winchester

By M. Beatrice Fazi “Introducing "computational aesthetics" against the background of sound knowledge in computational engineering and applied mathematics, Fazi's study is a daring philosophical approach to the apparent limits of digital computation, through the lenses of Alfred North Whitehead's "prehensional" ontology. Even more surprisingly, this book reintroduces Deleuzean philosophy - known for his distance to the subject of computing - as a useful tool to rethink computational formalism in terms of "becoming".” —Wolfgang Ernst, Professor of Media Theories, Humboldt University of Berlin, Germany M. Beatrice Fazi is a Research Fellow at the Sussex Humanities Lab, University of Sussex, UK. Her primary areas of expertise are the philosophy of computation, the philosophy of technology and the emerging field of media philosophy.

EXPERIENCE AND INFINITE TASK

HEIDEGGER AND THE GLOBAL AGE

Knowledge, Language and Messianism in the Philosophy of Walter Benjamin

Edited by Antonio Cerella and Louiza Odysseos

By Tamara Tagliacozzo “Experience and Infinite Task is an engaging study of some of the most complex aspects of Benjamin’s thought. Taking off from his critique of Kant and neo-Kantianism, Tagliacozzo offers new perspectives on the linguistic and epistemological dynamics that inform his theory of messianic history.” —Jan Mieszkowski, Professor of German and Comparative Literature at Reed College Tamara Tagliacozzo is Associate Professor of Moral Philosophy at the Università degli Studi Roma Tre, Italy.

“In this book, perhaps for the first time, Heidegger’s philosophy is analyzed in light of the global dynamics that characterize contemporary experience. How does Heidegger think the globalized world? And how does globalization radically mark Heidegger’s thinking? In answering this double question, the great Heideggerian themes of metaphysics and politics, history and art open themselves up to new problems and interpretations.” —Roberto Esposito, Professor of Theoretical Philosophy, Scuola Normale Superiore, Italy Antonio Cerella is Senior Lecturer in Politics, International Relations and Human Rights in the Department of Politics at Kingston University, London, UK.

HUMAN/NATURE Continental Thought and the Environment Edited by Jonathan Maskit The environment and humanity’s environmental problems are of great importance politically, ethically, economically, and aesthetically. Given the enduring concern of continental philosophy with the place of the embodied person in the world, it is no surprise that this tradition of philosophical thought has much to say about the environment and environmentalism. This volume brings together leading scholars from North America and Europe who work on environmentalism from a continental perspective. Jonathan Maskit is Visiting Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Denison University, Granville, USA, where he also teaches in the Environmental Studies Program.

IT'S NOT ABOUT THE GIFT

LAW AND PHILOSOPHICAL THEORY

From Givenness to Loving

Critical Intersections

By Anthony J. Steinbock

Edited by Thanos Zartaloudis

“Gift-giving is not simply about patterns of exchange or even giving without return; it presumes a rich context of experience: aesthetic, moral, and above all the motivation of love. Steinbock guides us through the dense phenomenological tradition of gift and givenness and, in his attention to beauty, goodness and love, adds something new, fundamental and unforgettable to the discussion.” —Kevin Hart, Edwin B. Kyle Professor of Christian Studies, University of Virginia

“Seeking spring in the season of theory, Zartaloudis sets out to challenge the collect or prayer to authority that authorizes the collection. This splendidly diverse array of essays throws off the mantle of mastery and the dudgeon of the disciplines in a scintillating exercise in thinking law without law.” —Peter Goodrich, Director, Program in Law and Humanities at Cardozo School of Law

ON MUSIC, VALUE AND UTOPIA

Weaving Our Liberation

Nostalgia for an Age yet to Come?

By Sara C. Motta

By Stan Erraught

“Lyrical, tough, eloquent, honest, generous, and, above all, wise. Sara Motta spells out the embodied material ground of our political struggles like no other. Here is a book to bring feminism back to its senses - a book that may even touch the hearts of men.” —Ariel Salleh, Political Economy, University of Sydney, author of Ecofeminism as Politics

“Neither Kant, because he disparages music, nor Adorno, because he despises the culture industry, seem promising starting points for an investigation into the aesthetics of pop. But Stan Erraught conjures up a very Kantian Adorno to find redemptive value in contemporary commercial sounds and provide useful philosophical ballast for all those who wish to take popular music seriously.” —Mark Abel, Senior Lecturer at the University of Brighton and Author of Groove: An Aesthetic of Measured Time

Sara Catherine Motta currently works in the Discipline of Politics at the University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia. She has published over 30 academic articles, edited 8 academic journal special issues since 2010, the most recent of which is (2017) Feminised Resistances with Tiina Seppälä for the Journal of Resistance Studies.

THE BIRTH OF PHYSICS

On Human Creation, Historical Novelty, and the Social Imaginary

“Webb and Ross have provided us with an elegant and idiomatic new translation of one of Michel Serres’s most timely and revolutionary books, allowing English readers to experience the extraordinary power and seductive quality of the Serresian idiom. It is my expectation and hope that their excellent work will open the riches of this important text to a new generation of Anglophone scholars.” —Chris Watkin, Monash University, Australia

Edited by Suzi Adams “This engaging live dialogue between Ricoeur and Castoriadis offers important insights into inexhaustible hermeneutic interpretation and productive collective imagination, which turn around the question of the possibility of radical novelty in thinking and social being. The publication of the debate is accompanied by a set of perceptive interpretations and commentaries that are philosophically significant in their own right.” —Dmitri Nikulin, Professor of Philosophy, New School for Social Research Suzi Adams is Senior Lecturer in Sociology at Flinders University, Australia.

CULTURE AND CRITICAL THEORY SERIES

CRITICAL PERSPECTIVES ON THEORY, CULTURE AND POLITICS Series edited by Chris Weedon, Glenn Jordan, Laurent Milesi, Radhika Mohanram and Chris Norris

Critical Perspectives on Theory, Culture and Politics, an interdisciplinary series, focuses on innovative research produced at the interface between critical theory and cultural studies. In recent years, much work in Cultural Studies has increasingly moved away from directly critical-theoretical concerns. One of the aims of this series is to foster a renewed dialogue between Cultural Studies and Critical and Cultural Theory in its rich, multiple dimensions.

AFFECTIVE CONNECTIONS Towards a New Materialist Politics of Sympathy By Dorota Golańska Inspired by the philosophical framework of Deleuze and Guattari in relation to affect, Affective Connections disavows the dominant oppositional discourse around representation to offer an affirmative approach to perception, cognition and experience. It advances a new materialist concept of synaesthetic perception, where synaesthesia is understood as a union of senses. This idea offers a new figuration for thinking about our cognition, exploring the role of embodied experience and the agency of matter in the production of knowledge.

FROM SHARED LIFE TO CO-RESISTANCE IN HISTORIC PALESTINE

MATERIALITIES OF SEX IN A TIME OF HIV

By Marcelo Svirsky and Ronnen Ben-Arie

By Annette-Carina van der Zaag

“This is an excellent and timely book. It recovers and describes historic Palestine's 'shared life', a kind of 'Middle Ground' that existed before the Zionist onslaught. But the book is not steeped in nostalgia, and its primary purpose is to contribute to crafting a decolonial future.” —Lorenzo Veracini, Associate Professor in History and Politics, Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne

“What can vaginal microbicides tell us? This compelling book engages the political, empirical and theoretical stakes of HIV science and prevention in its lived material reality. Crafting an innovative feminist neomaterialist toolkit, van der Zaag proposes an exciting agenda for feminist theorisations of empirical materialising in the world. This ground-breaking book demonstrates the transformative potential of analysis to revise, rewrite and reimagine feminist problems, concepts and futures.” —Nicole Vitellone, AF Warr Senior Lecturer in Sociology at the University of Liverpool

CRITIQUE AS SOCIAL PRACTICE

SOCIAL SUFFERING

Critical Theory and Social Self-Understanding

By Emmanuel Renault Translated by Maude Dews

By Robin Celikates Translated by Naomi van Steenbergen

“Emmanuel Renault is the leading voice in the new wave of critical theory that has flourished in France in the last two decades. In Social Suffering, he demonstrates through staggeringly rich empirical detail and incisive conceptual analyses how individual experiences of social pathologies, the experiences of social suffering, can form the basis of a consistent critique of modern society. The book is a tour de force of contemporary critical theory.” —Jean-Philippe Deranty, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Macquarie University, Australia

“Celikates presents an insightful critical reconstruction of three influential models of the relation between the European, male critical theorist and the people about whom he theorises in the works of Bourdieu, Boltanski and psychoanalysis, and of the French-German debates around them. The fine translation makes this important contribution to the history of European critical theory available to English-language students and scholars.” —James Tully, Professor Emeritus, University of Victoria Robin Celikates is Associate Professor of Political and Social Philosophy at the University of Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

THE SPELL OF RESPONSIBILITY Labor, Criminality, Philosophy By Frieder Vogelmann Translated by Daniel Steuer “Using a Foucauldian methodology, Frieder Vogelmann takes us to the very margins of our culture, where the strange customs of subjects who attribute responsibility to themselves and to others become visible.

“The Desiring Modes of Being Black is an archeology of desire and blackness. Rocchi pronounces a method of un-writing identity in texts only to interrogate its absences. The welcomed transdisciplinary approach exposes a critical, nuanced re-thinking of Baldwin, Dubois, race, sexuality, psychoanalysis, and others to advance a comprehensive frame to engage with performing blackness. —Myron M.

“This is a major contribution to the development of decolonial thought. Taylor-Garcia shows that mixing is not a triumph of moral anti-racism, as it is sometimes portrayed, but the result of forced collisions and migrations. Given this, decolonial projects must begin to operate more fully as relational projects that connect multiple domains. Brilliant.” —Linda Martin Alcoff, Professor of Philosophy, Political Science, and Women's Studies, Syracuse University

AFFECT AND SOCIAL MEDIA

AUSTERITY AS PUBLIC MOOD

Emotion, Mediation, Anxiety and Contagion

Social Anxieties and Social Struggles

Edited by Tony Sampson, Stephen Maddison and Darren Ellis

“This is a wonderfully clear-sighted and necessary appraisal of how ‘austerity’ is not simply a series of policies but a cultural sensibility and public mood. Kirstin Forkert’s astute and multifaceted account simultaneously helps us understand how destructive austerity politics are garnering support whilst investigating and imagining ways they are - and could be - addressed and combated in practice.” —Jo Littler, Reader and Director of Research, Department of Sociology, City, University of London

“Social media play an outsized role in our emotional lives. They continually modulate our moods and feelings. They transmit vague sensations that run through us like an infection or contagion. In order to take the measure of social media today, the essays in this volume combine empirical research with far-ranging speculation, offering us analyses that are at once surprising and disturbingly familiar.” —Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University Tony D.

NANCY, BLANCHOT A Serious Controversy By Leslie Hill “Leslie Hill examines Nancy’s strange change of direction in his response to Blanchot’s thinking of community, and is the first to explain in meticulous detail how and why Nancy, while still admiring Blanchot, recently began to attack the famous writer who was, like him, Derrida’s friend in thought. This is an impressive, compelling, and original contribution to an ongoing debate.” —Christophe Bident, Université de Picardie Jules Verne Leslie Hill is Emeritus Professor of French Studies at the University of Warwick, UK.

NEW DIRECTIONS IN DIASPORA STUDIES Cultural and Literary Approaches

This ground breaking series aims to investigate social imaginaries from theoretical, comparative, historical, and interdisciplinary perspectives. Its objective is to foster challenging research on the burgeoning but heterogeneous field of social imaginaries, on the one hand, and the related field of the creative imagination, on the other. The series publishes rigorous and innovative research that reflects the international, multi-regional and interdisciplinary scope across these fields.

PRODUCTIVE IMAGINATION Its History, Meaning and Significance Edited by Saulius Geniusas and Dmitri Nikulin

“New Directions in Diaspora Studies is a major contribution to the field. Contributors from diverse geographic affiliations take an important new step in reassessing the usefulness of diaspora as a theoretical framework. Because of the comparative approach, it will become an important reference for students and scholars.” —Chia Youyee Vang, Professor, Department of History, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

“This welcome volume explores the conceptual history of productive imagination by focusing on the development of the concept from its prefiguration in antiquity to its modern articulation in and after Kant. Special attention is paid to the romantic, phenomenological and hermeneutical traditions, with the main reference authors being F. Schlegel, Novalis, Dilthey and Ricoeur, as well as Cassirer and Heidegger.” —Günter Zöller, Professor of Philosophy, University of Munich

BIOPOLITICAL GOVERNANCE Race, Gender and Economy

FADING OUT BLACK AND WHITE

Edited by Hannah Richter

Racial Ambiguity in American Culture

“A theoretically sophisticated and empirically original text. Its authors argue with and beyond Foucault on both counts. Most especially useful is the way the text covers the areas that Foucault, and others, have been most criticised for neglecting. Populations and bodies are not what they used to be. Richter and her contributors take biopolitical analysis into a new age.” —Michael Dillon, Emeritus Professor of Politics, Lancaster University

POSTCOLONIAL EUROPE Comparative Reflections after the Empires Edited by Lars Jensen, Julia Suárez-Krabbe, Christian Groes and Zoran Lee Pecic “This compelling volume demonstrates that decolonization is an ongoing process affecting all Europeans now. Its authors invite us to reassess the intellectual and cultural geography of European colonialism and reflect on its racial and dehumanizing legacies. At the crossroads between postcolonial and decolonial studies, this book argues that colonial tropes and rhetoric still underpin contemporary narratives of nationhood and otherhood.” —Pierre-Philippe Fraiture, Head of French Studies at the University of Warwick, UK Lars Jensen is Associate Professor of Cultural Encounters in the Department of Communication and Arts at Roskilde University, Denmark.

“Mapping and re-mapping the cultural geography of race and identity are some of the critical, yet most complex endeavors of our time.

RETHINKING RACIAL CAPITALISM Questions of Reproduction and Survival By Gargi Bhattacharyya “Full of intellectual energy and wit, Rethinking Racial Capitalism is a fascinating account of the entanglements between capitalism and racism, from the proliferation of territorial borders, to reparations and indebtedness. Fulfilling her promise of descriptive analysis, Bhattacharyya’s storytelling is rich, alert, vibrant. Capitalism’s allure appears as a hot bath, a teenage outfit, the opening of a menu. I didn’t want the book to end.” —Yasmin Gunaratnam, Reader in Sociology at Goldsmiths University of London, UK Gargi Bhattacharyya is Professor of Sociology at the Centre For Migration, Refugees and Belonging, University of East London, UK.

THE STATE AND THE SELF

Popular Music and National Identity

Identity and Identities

By Melanie Schiller

By Maren Behrensen

“This is an extraordinary book: highly original, beautifully written and full of thought- and ear- opening insights. Schiller’s comparative close readings of carefully selected pop songs in various genres sheds valuable new light on the complex development of post-1945 German national identity formation. Her interpretations are at the same time rich, imaginative and lucidly convincing.”—Johan Fornäs, Professor in the Department of Media and Communication Studies at Södertörn University

In this fascinating and timely book, Maren Behrensen facilitates a conversation between philosophy and the ‘practitioners’ of identity. What makes a person the same person over time? This question has been studied throughout the history of philosophy. Yet philosophers have never fully engaged with the ‘practitioners’ of identity, namely technology developers, lawyers, politicians, sociologists and applied ethicists. The book offers an answer to the metaphysical question of personal identity and tries to show how this question is of immediate relevance to the various practices of identity management – particularly in the fields of administration, counter-terrorism activities, and gender reassignment.

Melanie Schiller is Assistant Professor of Media Studies and Popular Music at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands.

CITIZENSHIP AND PLACE

EXPLORING NIGHTLIFE

Case Studies on the Borders of Citizenship

Space, Society and Governance

Edited by Cherstin M. Lyon and Allison F. Goebel

Edited by Jordi Nofre Mateo and Adam Eldridge

This book explores the ways in which individuals and groups negotiate the meaning and rights associated with their citizenship or lack thereof within the context of diverse interpretations of "place." Place might be a specific location as in the place where a person is able to work, or live, or it may be more metaphorical, as in the spaces created to organize protest online. Place may even be defined by its absence or distance, as is the case with refugees and stateless individuals.

“This book is a fascinating collection of essays on nightlife in cities that have been underrepresented in the Anglophone literature. The chapters illustrate the intersection of global nocturnalization and planetary neoliberal gentrification, while also foregrounding the variegated forms of local nightlife governance and identity politics embedded in these processes. The book signals where urban night studies are, and should be, heading.” —Laam Hae, Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at York University

POSTHUMAN URBANISM Mapping Bodies in Contemporary City Space

SPACES AND POLITICS OF MOTHERHOOD

By Debra Benita Shaw

By Kate Boyer

“As the world becomes predominantly urban, and as humans become increasingly entangled with other creatures and technologies, we need to combine current urban sensibilities with a feel for the posthuman condition. Combing cutting edge theories with grounded observations, Debra Benita Shaw shows us the neoliberal constitution as well as the promises of our monstrous urban lives, pointing us towards a reconstituted urban politics and praxis.” —Stephen Hinchliffe, Professor in Human Geography at the University of Exeter

“A beautifully written, groundbreaking study of the challenges mothers face in seeking to feel at home in the world. Evidence-based, theoretically sophisticated, and animated by personal experience, it makes exciting advances in motherhood scholarship, asking: how can mothers be supported, if their care-work isn’t welcomed into the everyday spaces of our lives? This book is destined to become a classic.” —Fiona Giles, Senior Lecturer in Media and Communications at the University of Sydney

GLOBAL AESTHETIC RESEARCH Series edited by Joseph J. Tanke

The Global Aesthetic Research series publishes cutting-edge research in the field of aesthetics. It contains books that explore the principles at work in our encounters with art and nature, that interrogate the foundations of artistic, literary, and cultural criticism, and that articulate the theory of the discipline’s central concepts.

UNSETTLING FOOD POLITICS Agriculture, Dispossession and Sovereignty in Australia By Christopher Mayes “Mayes’ book is an important and, yes, unsettling reminder that in the Australian context, too, a return to smallholder farming as an antidote to the world’s food woes, is a return to an imaginary thick with dispossession and unfree labour.” —Julie Guthman, Professor of Social Sciences at the University of California, Santa Cruz Christopher Mayes is a DECRA Research Fellow in the Alfred Deakin Institute for Citizenship and Globalisation at Deakin University, Australia, and Research Affiliate with Sydney Health Ethics at the University of Sydney, Australia.

Interrogating the Spatial Turn between Disciplines Edited by Marijn Nieuwenhuis and David Crouch “Space has long been a key concept in the social sciences and humanities, but it is frequently dismissed as too abstract as a descriptor of our worldly entanglements. This book demonstrates the continuing importance of spatial thinking for contemporary scholars, and the power of space and spatiality as plastic concepts for opening out our worlds.” —Peter Merriman, Professor in Human Geography, Aberystwyth University, UK Marijn Nieuwenhuis is a lecturer in Political Geography at the University of Warwick, UK. David Crouch’s research and writing crosses a number of fields of cultural geography, social anthropology, cultural and visual studies and art theory.

This series seeks to unsettle such assumptions by comprehensively investigating the range of topological and topographical characteristics that lie at the heart of the idea of ‘islandness’. The books in Rethinking the Island work from a twin understanding that the island is central to Western conceptions of self, place, and planet, and that their idealization is upheld by strong associations between islands’ materialities and their status as powerful imaginaries.

CARIBBEAN ISLAND MOVEMENTS Culebra's Trans-insularities

POETRY AND ISLANDS Materiality and the Creative Imagination

By Carlo A Cubero

By Rajeev S. Patke

“Carlo Cubero’s wonderfully sensitive and rich exploration of Caribbean transinsularity breaks new ground by grasping the relationship of immanence that exists between the circulations and stabilities of human social life. We learn ethnographically how people forge lives that are at once insular and transnational, and which unsettle academic and political perspectives that privilege one dimension over the other.” —Peter Wade, Professor of Social Anthropology at the University of Manchester

“An archipelagic work of comparatist poetics, Poetry and Islands is as wide-ranging as the epic navigations and as attentive to detail as the lyric forms that it maps onto our literary geographies. From the ancient myth of Atlantis to the politics of modern Taiwan, Patke registers the ways in which our imaginative and historical experience is, always already, island life.” —Srikanth Reddy, Associate Professor of English at the University of Chicago

Carlo A. Cubero is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department Social & Cultural Anthropology at Tallinn University, Estonia.

CITIZEN JOURNALISM AS CONCEPTUAL PRACTICE

MEASUREMENT IN MEDICINE

Postcolonial Archives and Embodied Political Acts of New Media

Edited by Leah McClimans

By Bolette B. Blaagaard

“This is an exciting collection of new essays exploring the use of outcome measurements in medicine. It demonstrates, in a variety of ways, that there are both epistemic and ethical choices to make in selecting outcome measurements as a basis for policy decisions. It is accessible to a multidisciplinary audience, including philosophers of science, ethicists, epidemiologists, and policy experts.” —Miriam Solomon, Professor of Philosophy, Temple University

“In this fascinating book, Blaagaard breaks new ground in the theory and research of citizen journalism. Her historical insight into the anti-colonial politics of civic journalism in an African-Caribbean community frees citizen journalism from its current links to digital technology and offers a radical rethinking of the relationship between journalism, citizenship and technology. An original and much-needed contribution to journalism studies.” —Lilie Chouliaraki, Department of Media and Communications, London School of Economics and Political Science Bolette B.

NIHILISM AND TECHNOLOGY By Nolen Gertz “Nolen Gertz’s Nihilism and Technology is a provocative and unsettling call to reconceive the entire social media ecosystem—and our increasingly compulsive participation in it—as a seduction to nihilism: an open invitation to seek evernew escapes from ourselves, from the burdens of our choices, and from our own missed opportunities to make meaning in our lives and our world.” —Shannon Vallor, William J. Rewak, S.J. Professor, Santa Clara University Nolen Gertz is Assistant Professor of Applied Philosophy at the University of Twente, The Netherlands, and a Senior Researcher at the 4TU.Centre for Ethics and Technology, Eindhoven, The Netherlands.

A HUMAN RIGHT TO CULTURE AND IDENTITY

AMBIVALENCE

The Ambivalence of Group Rights

By Hili Razinsky

By Janne Mende This book reveals the pitfalls, benefits and demands that surround the debate for and against culture and identity in human rights. It connects a continuous and nuanced theoretical debate with highly topical empirical findings about collective rights for indigenous groups, which for centuries have been suppressed and marginalized and now stand at the forefront of (successfully) demanding a human right to their own culture and distinct identity.

“Hili Razinsky's philosophical exploration of ambivalence is not only about ambivalence: it might be read as a call for using more substantial, phenomenologically nuanced, and real-life faithful terms in contemporary analytic philosophy. Concepts, such as belief, desire or emotion, which are at the center of many philosophical discussions about subjectivity, are often difficult to project onto real subjects. They seem to be fossils that have already lost their vividness. Some of them are brought to life in Razinsky's book.” —Metapsychology Online

Janne Mende is a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Kassel, Germany.

Hili Razinsky is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Advanced Study, Sofia, Bulgaria.

ANTI-GENDER CAMPAIGNS IN EUROPE

ASYLUM AFTER EMPIRE

Mobilizing against Equality

By Lucy Mayblin

Edited by Roman Kuhar and David Paternotte

“Asylum After Empire is a landmark book. It is a forensic account of how asylum became central to contemporary politics in the West. Mayblin blends insightful theoretical analysis with detailed historical enquiry to show how asylum is produced by, and is productive of, colonial modernity – it is the continuation of 19th and 20th century differential rights regimes by another name. Contemporary debates about refugees, Mayblin demonstrates, are really debates about human hierarchy. Asylum After Empire is not just a fine piece of scholarship, it matters. Read it.” —George Lawson, Associate Professor, London School of Economics

“An essential reading to better understand the widespread reactionary backlash in today’s Europe. This book is a much-needed wake-up call. While anti-gay marriage movements have long been regarded as anecdotical, the authors show how deep their cultural and religious roots are. This meticulous account is an important step towards reinventing minority rights across European borders.” —Bruno Perreau, Cynthia L.

ECONOMICS OF THE MARINE

EGYPTIAN REVOLUTIONS

Modelling Natural Resources

Conflict, Repetition and Identification

By Karyn Morrissey

By Amal Treacher Kabesh

“The marine environment supports many millions of jobs worldwide. In her excellent book, Dr. Morrissey provides a thoughtful review and synthesis of methods that can be used to provide a much-needed empirical basis for managing the diverse and often competing economic demands on the marine environment, addressing the formidable task of defining, measuring, and analyzing the marine economy.” —Jeffery Adkins, Economist, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

“There is no dearth of books on Egyptian revolution of 2011. Amal Treacher Kabesh’s present book adds a new dimension. Drawing upon the postcolonial theory and socio-psychological perspectives, her book privileges a subjective understanding of the events and their consequences on the existential as well as the quotidian life of the Egyptians.” —Habibul Haque Khondker, Professor, Zayed University, UAE

HEGEL, HUSSERL AND THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF HISTORICAL WORLDS

HEIDEGGER'S GODS

By Tanja Staehler

“Taking on nothing less than the metaphysics of modernity, Claxton’s creativity and skill knows no bounds. Here she places environmental ethics and ecological feminism in conversation with Heidegger’s Dasein and Agamben’s state of exception to surprising effect. The book is a significant contribution to phenomenological analysis and a joy to read.” —Ariel Salleh, Political Economy, University of Sydney, author of Ecofeminism as Politics

GWF Hegel famously described philosophy as 'its own time apprehended in thoughts', reflecting a desire that we increasingly experience, namely, the desire to understand our complex and fast-changing world. But how can we philosophically describe the world we live in? When Hegel attempted his systematic account of the historical world, he needed to conceive of history as rational progress to allow for such description. After the events of the twentieth century, we are rightfully doubtful about such progress. However, in the twentieth century, another German philosophy, Edmund Husserl, attempted a similar project when he realised that a philosophical account of our human experience requires attending to the historical world we live in. According to Husserl, the Western world is a world in crisis. In this book, Tanja Staehler explores how Husserl thus radicalises Hegel’s philosophy by providing an account of historical movement as open.

Edited by Dara Downey, Ian Kinane and Elizabeth Parker

By Andrey Makarychev and Alexandra Yatsyk

“This is a bold and impressive collection of essays which deftly explores the complexity of liminality as a key concept across a range of disciplines. Landscapes of Liminality is a brilliant contribution to on-going debates in the new spatial studies and demonstrates the profound importance of the categories of space, place, and liminal identities to our understanding of culture and society.” —Andrew Thacker, Professor of English Literature, Nottingham Trent University

“How do we make sense of the post-Soviet condition when the “transition” paradigm has bankrupted? How do we put Putin’s Russia in a cultural context without falling prey to essentialism and misleading generalisations? In this original and elegantly written book Andrey Makarychev and Alexandra Yatsyk interpret the work of leading Soviet semiotician Yuri Lotman to offer us an enlightening perspective to understanding the present Russian political reality.” —Ivan Krastev, Chairman, Center for Liberal Studies, Sofia

“In Performative Contradiction and the Romanian Revolution Jolan Bogdan makes an original and compelling analysis that shows how the deep ambiguities and paradoxes that freight revolutionary situations threaten to render inadequate our philosophical and political vocabularies. The in-depth account of the Romanian revolution is complemented by a fascinating study of the collective psyche of a people under a totalitarian regime and an astute reflection on the nature of violence.” —Elina Staikou, Associate Lecturer, University of Westminster, UK

PUNKS, MONKS AND POLITICS PRACTISING RHYTHMANALYSIS Theories and Methodologies

Authenticity in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia Edited by Julian C H Lee and Marco Ferrarese

“This is an important book that pushes rhythmanalysis beyond its deep roots in philosophy and toward the vast and rich fields of cultural studies, visual culture, historiography, social theory and the social sciences. With a superb attention to the practical value of rhythmanalysis for embodied, emplaced, and timeattuned research Yi Chen intelligently embraces and highlights the immense value of rhythm for research methodology and sensuous scholarship.” —Phillip Vannini, Professor of Communication and Culture and Canada Research Chair at Royal Roads University, Canada

“This is an important book that illuminates the cultural dynamics of a region whose increasingly pivotal role in world affairs has only begun to be appreciated. Through detailed, engaging case studies, the volume’s contributors explore the centrality of ideas regarding authenticity to an array of cultural phenomena, from Buddhism to textiles to heavy metal, in three adjoining Southeast Asian nations. The result is an overdue wake-up call for those who would minimize the strong affinities between indigenous and imported cultural formations across national, religious, and linguistic boundaries revealed by this volume’s unique focus.” —Jeremy Wallach, Professor, Department of Popular Culture, Bowling Green State University, USA

Translation exposes aspects of language that can easily be ignored, renewing the sense of the proximity and inseparability of language and thought. The ancient quarrel between philosophy and literature was an early expression of a selfunderstanding of philosophy that has, in some quarters at least, survived the centuries. This book explores the idea of translation as a philosophical theme and as an important feature of philosophy and practical life, especially in relation to the work of Stanley Cavell.

THE ANIMAL INSIDE Essays at the Intersection of Philosophical Anthropology and Animal Studies Edited by Geoffrey Dierckxsens, Rudmer Bijlsma, Michael Begun and Thomas Kiefer Much has been written about animals in applied ethics, environmental ethics, and animal rights. This book takes a new turn, offering an examination of the 'animal question' from a more fundamental, philosophical-anthropological perspective. The contributors in this important volume focus on how the animal has appeared and can be used in philosophical argumentation as a metaphor or reference point that helps us understand what is distinctively human and what is not. A recurring theme in the essays is the existence of a zone of ambiguity between animals and humans, which puts into question comfortable assumptions about the uniqueness and superiority of human nature. Geoffrey Dierckxsens is a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Contemporary Continental Philosophy in the Institute of Philosophy of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Czech Republic.

THE END OF THE WORLD Contemporary Philosophy and Art Edited by Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback and Susanna Lindberg Omnipresent in popular culture, especially in film and literature, the theme of the 'end of the world' is often rejected from contemporary philosophy as hysterical apocalyptism. This volume attempts to show that, on the contrary, it is vital that we address the motif of the 'end' in contemporary world – but that this cannot be done without thinking it anew. The book opens with a philosophical hermeneutics of the present state of the world by showing how the end of the world takes place in the world itself. It goes on to show how different arts have ventured to express the end of the world while asking if a consequent expression of the end of the world is also an end of its expression. Finally the book explores how philosophy copes with the problematic of the end of the world today. Marcia Sa Cavalcante Schuback is Professor of Philosophy at Sodertorn University, Sweden. Susanna Lindberg is a Core Fellow at the Collegium for Advanced Studies of the University of Helsinki, Finland.

THE PHENOMENOLOGY OF GRAVIDITY Reframing Pregnancy and the Maternal through Merleau-Ponty, Levinas and Derrida By Jane Lymer “'After conception, a woman is in the state of gravidity; this exciting and significant book explores that embodied and affective experience. Lymer theorises a multiplicity of gestational experiences, and explains how their denial is critical in women’s oppression.

THEORISING LITERARY ISLANDS The Island Trope in Contemporary Robinsonade Narratives

THE VALUE OF LITERATURE

By Ian Kinane

By Rafe McGregor

“Theorising Literary Islands makes an important contribution to island studies by pulling disparate prior scholarship on the island motif into conversation with under-discussed castaway texts. By drawing together various threads into a cohesive discussion, Kinane makes a cogent argument for larger implications of Western literary and cinematic islands, one that will benefit island scholars worldwide.” —Rebecca Weaver-Hightower, Professor of English and Postcolonial Studies, University of North Dakota, USA

“Rafe McGregor argues for a conception of literary value that avoids the perils of both instrumentalism and formalism; preserving the autonomy of literature, while still maintaining the link to the world. He steers a clear path through a dense thicket, arguing his points with rigour. Whether or not you agree, you will be clearer for having read this book.” —Derek Matravers, Professor of Philosophy, The Open University Rafe McGregor is Lecturer in Criminology at Leeds Trinity University, UK, and Associate Lecturer in the Centre for Lifelong Learning at the University of York, UK.

RADICAL SKIN, MODERATE MASKS

QUALITATIVE METHODS FOR HEALTH ECONOMICS

De-radicalising the Muslim and Racism in Post-racial Societies

Edited by Joanna Coast

By Yassir Morsi “Radical Skin, Moderate Masks is an incisive analysis of how the War on Terror produces the Muslim as radical Other, then summons Muslims in the West to prove themselves otherwise – an impossible demand. It is equally an unflinching portrayal of the “moderates” who must live in that trap. Sparing no-one, not even himself, Morsi’s book is a ferocious, lyrical, no-holds-barred auto-ethnography in the finest Fanonian tradition.” —Mayanthi L. Fernando, Associate Professor of Anthropology, University of California, Santa Cruz

“For decades Joanna Coast and her colleagues have challenged health economists to think outside the box. In this new edited work they provide readers with a comprehensive overview how one can use qualitative methods to advance the depth of understanding of problems that individuals and societies face. It is a must read.” —John F P Bridges, Associate Professor, John Hopkins University and founding editor of The Patient 2017 • 404 pages 978-1-78348-562-8 • $47.95 / £32.95 • Paperback 978-1-78348-561-1 • $135.00 / £95.00 • Hardback 978-1-78348-563-5 • $47.95 / £32.99 • eBook

PUNKS, MONKS AND POLITICS Authenticity in Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia Edited by Julian C H Lee and Marco Ferrarese

MEDIA AND THE EXPERIENCE OF SOCIAL CHANGE The Arab World By Tim Markham

“This is an important book that illuminates the cultural dynamics of a region whose increasingly pivotal role in world affairs has only begun to be appreciated. Through detailed, engaging case studies, the volume’s contributors explore the centrality of ideas regarding authenticity to an array of cultural phenomena, from Buddhism to textiles to heavy metal, in three adjoining Southeast Asian nations.” —Jeremy Wallach, Professor, Department of Popular Culture, Bowling Green State University, USA

“The Arab uprisings, as well as the tumultuous political upheavals that have occurred since, suggest that we live not only in a world of crises but one that is undergoing profound transformations. Tim Markham’s distinctive book thoughtfully encourages us to approach and understand this same world as lived, communicated and experienced in the everyday.” —Simon Cottle, Professor of Media and Communications at the School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies at Cardiff University

#RLIBLOG COMEDY AND CRITICAL THOUGHT By Iain McKenzie, Fred Francis and Krista Bonello Rutter Giappone

Q Why did the critical theorist cross the road? A To see the problem from the other side. The power of comedy to unsettle established truths, to challenge dominant discourses and satirise those in government is well known. It is equally well known, however, that comedy is often deployed in propaganda, used to reinforce established norms and conventions and part of the rhetorical arsenal of those who rule over us. So, how do we tell the difference? For this we need to approach comedy with a disposition oriented towards rooting out presuppositions and scrutinising them with all the tools of the critical theorist. In this volume, we have gathered together a wide range of critical theorists and comedy scholars who all share this disposition.

www.rowmaninternational.com | www.rowman.com

Q Why did the critical theorist cross the road? A To establish what can and cannot be known

about legitimate public highways.

This collection examines what happens when comedy and critique intersect. It does so by bringing together critical theorists and comedy scholars with a view to exploring the nature of comedy, its potential role in critical theory and the forms it can take as a practice of resistance. Broadly speaking, there are two main themes: a) comedy, critique and resistance; b) laughter as resistance. The first theme speaks to the ways in which critical theorists have analysed comedy and how critical theorists have mobilised comedy within the workings of their philosophical systems. That said, it is also important to consider the possibility that there is no useful link between comedy and critical thought, especially in what are often called post-critical times. Perhaps the tasks of critique and resistance need to be considered separately? The essays under this first theme consider these questions utilising a variety of critical perspectives, from process philosophy to cognitivism to contemporary work on the nature of capitalism (and more besides). The second theme focusses on how those that make us laugh are often also that make us think. The fool, the comic and the satirist have a certain license to interrogate the


social and political realm that is not always available to the politician, commentator or theorist. Of course, for all that comedy and critical thought do appear to have a close connection, we also know that comedy is often used to reinforce the status quo, and sometimes functions as an exclusionary mechanism in the service of hierarchical power relations. It is not always easy to know when comedy is conservative and when it is radical and in this collection we do not shy away from these difficulties. Indeed, many of the contributions address it head on in their analyses of the complex intersection of comedic practice and practices of resistance, in different contexts.

conformist comedians, British cartoon comedy from the First World War, reflections on comedy in contemporary art, an investigation of the role of humour in Beckett, a dissection of the role of comedy in Punk music, an exploration of postcolonial humour, an examination of the rhetorical strategies of a Brazilian clown running for election and some darkly comic interventions in the everyday life of meetings and self-help. Every one of these essays is the beginning of more potential research in this field. It is our hope as editors that the collection provides a survey of the terrain that will inspire this work to be done.

Q Why did the critical theorist cross the road? Q Why did the critical theorist cross the road? A Because it was established that both sides are A It was the necessary unfolding of worldresting on the same foundation.

historical spirit.

We think of this volume as agenda-setting. Rather than pursue a single line of enquiry we thought that it is important at this early stage in the development of the cross-fertilisation of comedy and critical thought that we explore and experiment with as wide a range of perspectives as possible. We extended this invitation to our contributors and, we hope that you’ll agree, they all responded with such flair and imagination that we now know that the agenda for this new interdisciplinary research is even wider and deeper than we first thought. Between the covers, under the umbrella of the first thematic, you will find work on the nature of comic estrangement, the difference between critical and resistant humour, what we can learn from Lenny Bruce, the relation between laughter and liturgy, and a new concept for understanding the role of humour as performative resistance. Under the second thematic, you’ll find contributions on Eighteenth-Century Dutch

We hope that this volume makes you think and that you will also find many moments that will make you laugh. Perhaps by the end of it, you will agree with us that thinking and laughing are even more deeply connected than we – critical theorists and comedy scholars – sometimes imagine.

Q Why did the critical theorist cross the road? A To map the movement of the nomadic chicken.

And we are sure that you can come up with better jokes!
