The location of culture by Homi K Bhabha( Book )

113 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 7 languages and held by 1,881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In rethinking questions of identity, social agency, and national affiliation, Bhabha provides a working, if controversial, theory of cultural hybridity, one that goes beyond previous attempts by others in trying to understand connections between colonialism and globalism. A scholar who writes about both metropolitan and diasporic literatures, as well as contemporary art, he discusses writers as diverse as Forster, Conrad, Gordimer, and Morrison. In The Location of Culture, Bhabha has reconceived concepts such as colonial mimicry, hybridity, and social liminality to argue that cultural production is always most productive where it is most ambivalent and transgressive."--Jacket

Yve-Alain Bois, Wendy Doniger, Kenneth Frampton, Martin E.

Midnight to the boom : painting in India after independence : from the Peabody Essex Museum's Herwitz Collection by Susan S Bean( Book )

10 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A revolutionary art movement asserted itself in India between the declaration of independence at midnight on August 15, 1947, and the economic boom of the 1990s. This is the first in-depth study of the three generations of artists responsible for critical shifts in the development of India's modernist art.Their achievements and the country's unprecedented boom ushered India's modern and contemporary art into a new era of globalism, a soaring international market, and an explosion in the media and technologies of art. After independence, India's artists faced a particular artistic challenge: how to express the new nation's distinctive character while entering a global discourse focused on modernism's universal premises of experimentation and shared human values. In the absence of a dominant aesthetic, painters could turn where they wished and blend as they liked -- from Abstract Expressionism to Tantric spiritualism; from Rajasthani painting to changes in India's complex politics, religions, classes, and vernacular life. The contributors to this beautifully illustrated publication bring a deep knowledge of both India and modern and contemporary art: Susan S. Bean, Curator of South Asian and Korean Art at the Peabody Essex Museum; Homi K. Bhabha, Harvard University; Rebecca M. Brown, Johns Hopkins University; Beth Citron, Rubin Museum of Art; Ajay Sinha, Mount Holyoke College; and Karin Zitzewitz, Michigan State University."--Publisher's website

A living man declared dead and other chapters : I-XVIII by Taryn Simon( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 68 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tate Modern premieres an important new body of work by the American artist Taryn Simon. A Living Man Declared Dead and Other Chapters was produced over a four-year period (2008-11), during which Simon travelled around the world researching and recording bloodlines and their related stories. In each of the eighteen 'chapters' that make up the work, the external forces of territory, power, circumstance or religion collide with the internal forces of psychological and physical inheritance. The subjects documented by Simon include feuding families in Brazil, victims of genocide in Bosnia, the body double of Saddam Hussein's son Uday, and the living dead in India. Her collection is at once cohesive and arbitrary, mapping the relationships among chance, blood, and other components of fate

Our neighbours, ourselves : contemporary reflections on survival by Homi K Bhabha( Book )

6 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Homi K. Bhabha delivered the 2010 Hegel lecture, evoking the spirit of Hegel in an attempt to understand contemporary issues of ethical witness, historical memory and the rights and representations of minorities in the cultural sphere. Who is our neighbour today? What does hospitality mean for our times? Why is the recognition of others such an agonizing encounter with the alterity of the self?The lecture examplifies how the?Third Space? - one of the key theories of Postcolonialism - helps us to establish a new understanding of cosmopolitanism and hospitality in a globalized world, based on the right of difference in equality.; Homi K. Bhabha, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA
Naciones literarias( Book )

7 editions published in 2006 in Spanish and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Naciones literarias es un quiasmo gramatical basado en "literaturas nacionales" que apuesta por una concepción de la literatura que tiene hoy en día nuevas fronteras, nuevos retos. Autores, lectores, profesores y críticos son conscientes de los límites nacionales, pero logran superarlos en el proceso de lectura e interpretación de los textos literarios (diversos en lenguas, autores, tendencias, países, clases sociales, religiones, géneros...) para dar lugar al entendimiento de lo otro y a la formación de una identidad plural. Se reflexiona, desde distintos puntos de vista, sobre la historiografía literaria y la nación moderna
