Dust : the archive and cultural history by Carolyn Steedman( Book )

3 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carolyn Steedman has produced an original and sometimes irreverent investigation into how modern historiography has developed. Dust: The Archive and Cultural History considers our stubborn set of beliefs about an objective material world inherited from the nineteenth century with which modern history writing and its lack of such a belief, attempts to grapple. Drawing on her own published and unpublished writing, Carolyn Steedman has produced a sustained argument about the way in which history writing belongs to the currents of thought shaping the modern world. Steedman begins by asserting that in recent years much attention has been paid to the archive by those working in the humanities and social sciences; she calls this practice "archivization." By definition, the archive is the repository of "that which will not go away," and the book goes on to suggest that, just like dust, the "matter of history" can never go away or be erased."--Publisher's description

Post-communist malaise : cinematic responses to European integration by Zoran Samardzija( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Post-Communist Malaise examines political modernism within the context of post-communist Eastern Europe and the Balkans. It focuses on how select cinemas from the regions critique European unification and how they represent related issues like the transition from communism to free-market capitalism, the Euro crisis and austerity, and the rise of nationalism and right-wing politics"--
The Emperor's new clothes : biological theories of race at the millennium by Joseph L Graves( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Joseph Graves traces the development of thought about human genetic diversity. He argues that racism has persisted in our society because adequate scientific reasoning has not entered into the equation. Graves champions the scientific method, and explains how we may properly ask questions about the nature of population differentiation and how (if at all) we may correlate that diversity to differences in human capacity and behavior. He also cautions us to think critically about scientific findings that have historically been misused in controversies over racial differences in intelligence heritability, criminal behavior disease predisposition, and other traits. Greek philosophy, social Darwinism, New World colonialism, the eugenics movement, intelligence testing biases, and racial health fallacies are just a few of the topics he addresses." "According to Graves, this country cannot truly address its racial problems until people understand that separate human races do not exist empirically. With the biological basis for race removed, racism becomes an ideology, one that can and must be expunged."--Jacket

Mapping feminist anthropology in the twenty-first century by Leni M Silverstein( Book )

2 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Feminist anthropology emerged in the 1970s as a much-needed corrective to the discipline's androcentric biases. Far from being a marginalized subfield, it has been at the forefront of developments that have revolutionized not only anthropology, but also a host of other disciplines. This landmark collection of essays provides a contemporary overview of feminist anthropology's historical and theoretical origins, the transformations it has undergone, and the vital contributions it continues to make to cutting-edge scholarship. Mapping Feminist Anthropology in the Twenty-First Century brings together a variety of contributors, giving a voice to both younger researchers and pioneering scholars who offer insider perspectives on the field's foundational moments. Some chapters reveal how the rise of feminist anthropology shaped--and was shaped by--the emergence of fields like women's studies, black and Latina studies, and LGBTQ studies. Others consider how feminist anthropologists are helping to frame the direction of developing disciplines like masculinity studies, affect theory, and science and technology studies. Spanning the globe--from India to Canada, from Vietnam to Peru--Mapping Feminist Anthropology in the Twenty-First Century reveals the important role that feminist anthropologists have played in worldwide campaigns against human rights abuses, domestic violence, and environmental degradation. It also celebrates the work they have done closer to home, helping to explode the developed world's preconceptions about sex, gender, and sexuality." --

Drawing the Iron Curtain : Jews and the golden age of Soviet animation by Maya Balakirsky Katz( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Drawing the Iron Curtain tells the story of the golden age of Soviet animation and the Jewish artists who enabled it to thrive. Maya Balakirsky Katz reveals how the state-run animation studio Soyuzmultfilm served as an unlikely haven for political dissidents and brought together Jewish creative personnel from across the land. These artists used the studio to depict distinctive elements of their heritage and ethnic identity, while articulating a cosmopolitan sensibility and a multicultural vision for the Soviet Union" -- From the publisher
A history of the circle : mathematical reasoning and the physical universe by Ernest Zebrowski( Book )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"No one has ever discovered a true mathematical circle. Rainbows are fuzzy, car tires are flat on the bottom, and even the most precise roller bearings have measurable irregularities. Ernest Zebrowski, Jr., discusses why investigations of the circle over time have contributed enormously to our current knowledge of the physical universe. Beginning with the ancient mathematicians and culminating in twentieth-century theories of space and time, the mathematics of the circle has pointed many investigators in fruitful directions in their quests to unravel nature's secrets." "Throughout his book, Zebrowski emphasizes the concepts underlying these mathematicians' calculations, and how these concepts are linked to real-life examples. Substantiated by easy-to-follow mathematical reasoning and clear illustrations, this accessible book presents a novel and interesting discussion of the circle in technology, culture, history, and science."--Jacket
Abstinence cinema : virginity and the rhetoric of sexual purity in contemporary film by Casey Ryan Kelly( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstinence Cinema tracks the surprising sex-negative turn that Hollywood films have taken, associating premarital sex with shame and degradation, while romanticizing traditional nuclear families, courtship rituals, and gender roles. Locating these regressive sexual politics in everything from Twilight to Taken to Superbad, Casey Ryan Kelly examines how these films echo the rhetoric of the evangelical abstinence-only movement, then analyzes how they are particularly disempowering to young women, who are judged strictly on the basis of their sexuality
