Visions of sovereignty : indigenous narratives of resistance in a Neoliberal Age by Brendan Smyth( )

2 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation examines four Indigenous novels published in Canada and the United States between 1990 and 2000. Building upon Indigenous and non-Indigenous theories of literary nationalism, cosmopolitanism, and globalization, this project focuses on narrative articulations of Indigenous cultural and political sovereignty that foreground and are cognizant of global political, economic, cultural, and environmental entanglements. One of the key intentions of this study is to underscore the importance of examining how modes of Indigenous being-in-common are articulated in fiction written within a context of neoliberalism. Leslie Marmon Silko's Almanac of the Dead is foundational in terms of its critique of the practices and ideologies of neoliberal globalization, its representation of Indigenous modes of being-in-relation and resistance, its association of Indigenous sovereignty with transnational, inter-tribal, and alliancebased movements. Linda Hogan's Solar Storms offers an Indigenous critique of neoliberalism from an environmental standpoint, foregrounding the importance of Indigenous ecologies, knowledges, and relations in the face of neoliberal globalization. Sherman Alexie's Indian Killer articulates urban Indigenous community practices in resistance to urban neoliberal governmentality, ongoing colonial policies of erasure, and material and intellectual dispossession. Jeannette Armstrong's Whispering in Shadows explores the context of Indigenous liberation struggles in the Americas, as well as global Indigenous activism at the international level. I argue that these novels represent a broad spectrum of Indigenous responses in 1990s North America to the economic, environmental, cultural, and political consequences of neoliberal globalization for Indigenous practices of community, nationalism, and sovereignty. Ultimately, they imagine and problematize possibilities for resistance, for conceptualizing justice, and for understanding our complex interrelationships with others

Association of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide with contrast-induced acute kidney injury and long-term mortality in patients with heart failure and mid-range ejection fraction( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Abstract: The potential value of N-terminal pro-brain natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) for contrast-induced acute kidney injury (CI-AKI) in patients with heart failure and mid-range ejection fraction (HFmrEF) is unclear. We investigated whether NT-proBNP is associated with CI-AKI and long-term mortality following elective cardiac catheterization in patients with HFmrEF. A total of 174 consecutive patients with HFmrEF undergoing elective coronary angiography or intervention were enrolled. The primary endpoint was the development of CI-AKI, defined as an absolute increase of ≥0.3 mg/dL or ≥ 50% from baseline serum creatinine with 48 hours after contrast medium exposure. Receiver-operating characteristic curve analysis was conducted, and Youden index was used to determine the best cutoff NT-proBNP value. Multivariable logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards regression analyses were performed to identify the independent risk factors for CI-AKI and long-term mortality, respectively. The incidence of CI-AKI was 12.1%. Patients with CI-AKI had higher NT-proBNP values than those without (4373[1561.9–7470.5] vs 1303[625.2–2482.3], P  = 0.003). Receiver-operating characteristic curve revealed that NT-proBNP was not significantly different from the Mehran risk score in predicting CI-AKI (area under the curve [AUC] = 0.723 vs 0.767, P  = 0.516). The best cutoff NT-proBNP value for CI-AKI was 3299 pg/mL, with 70.6% sensitivity and 83.1% specificity. Multivariable analysis demonstrated that NT-proBNP ≥3299 pg/mL is significantly related to CI-AKI (odds ratio = 12.79; 95% confidence interval, 3.18–51.49; P  < 0.001). Cox regression analysis showed that NT-proBNP ≥3299 pg/mL is associated with long-term mortality (adjusted hazard ratio = 11.91; 95%CI, 2.16–65.70; P  = 0.004) during follow-up. In patients with HFmrEF, NT-proBNP ≥3299 pg/mL is associated with CI-AKI and long-term mortality following elective coronary angiography or intervention
