The location of culture by Homi K Bhabha( Book )

140 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 10 languages and held by 2,307 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
Nation and narration by Homi K Bhabha( Book )

70 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 1,226 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Bhabha, in his preface, writes 'Nations, like narratives, lose their origins in the myths of time and only fully encounter their horizons in the mind's eye'. From this seemingly impossibly metaphorical beginning, this volume confronts the realities of the concept of nationhood as it is lived and the profound ambivalence of language as it is written. From Gillian Beer's reading of Virginia Woolf, Rachel Bowlby's cultural history of Uncle Tom's Cabin and Francis Mulhern's study of Leaviste's 'English ethics'; to Doris Sommer's study of the 'magical realism' of Latin American fiction and Sneja Gunew's analysis of Australian writing, Nation and Narration is a celebration of the fact that English is no longer an English national consciousness, which is not nationalist, but is the only thing that will give us an international dimension."--Publisher's website
Black skin, white masks by Frantz Fanon( )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fanon, born in Martinique and educated in France, is generally regarded as the leading anti-colonial thinker of the 20th century. His first book is an analysis of the impact of colonial subjugation on the black psyche. It is a very personal account of Fanon's experience being black: as a man, an intellectual, and a party to a French education.--Adapted from
The wretched of the earth by Frantz Fanon( Book )

8 editions published between 2004 and 2017 in English and held by 853 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Frantz Fanon was one of the twentieth century's most important theorists of revolution, colonialism, and racial difference, and this, his masterwork, is a classic alongside Orientalism and The Autobiography of Malcolm X. The Wretched of the Earth is a brilliant analysis of the psychology of the colonized and their path to liberation. Bearing singular insight into the rage of colonized peoples and the role of violence in historical change, the book also incisively attacks postindependence disenfranchisement of the masses by the elite on one hand, and intertribal and interfaith animosities on the other. A veritable handbook of social reorganization for leaders of emerging nations, The Wretched of the Earth has had a major impact on civil rights, anticolonialism, and black-consciousness movements around the world. This new translation updates its language for a new generation of readers and its lessons are more vital now than ever
Mary Kelly by Mary Kelly( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When Mary Kelly's best-known work, Post-Partum Document (1973--1979), was shown at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London in 1976, it caused a sensation--an unexpected response to an intellectually demanding and aesthetically restrained installation of conceptual art. The reception signaled resistance to the work's interrogation of feminine identity and the cultural mythologizing of motherhood. This volume of essays and interviews begins with this foundational work, offering an early statement by the artist, a subsequent interview, and an essay situating the work within a broader discourse of art and social purpose in the early 1970s. Throughout, the collection addresses such themes as labor, war, trauma, and the politics of care, while emphasizing the artist's sustained engagement with histories of feminism and generations of feminists. The contributions also consider such specific works as Kelly's Interim (1984--1989), the subject of a special issue of October; Gloria Patri (1992), an installation conceived in response to the first Gulf War; The Ballad of Kastriot Rexhepi (2001), an extensive project including a 200-foot narrative executed in the medium of compressed lint and the performance of a musical score by Michael Nyman; and two recent works, Love Songs (2005-2007), which explores the role of memory in feminist politics, and Mimus (2012), a triptych that parodies the House Un-American Activities Committee's 1962 investigation of the pacifist group, Women Strike for Peace."--Back cover

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 in 2013 in English and held by 420 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. Abundantly illustrated with iconic works of the post-Independence era, Midnight to the Boom tells the story of the exciting developments that occurred in Indian art and culture during this pivotal period in the country's modern history."[Source : revers de la jaquette]

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

5 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 157 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
Territories & trajectories : cultures in circulation( Book )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 121 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The contributors to Territories and Trajectories propose a model of cultural production and transmission based on the global diffusion, circulation, and exchange of people, things, and ideas across time and space. This model eschews a static, geographically bounded notion of cultural origins and authenticity, privileging instead a mobility of culture that shapes and is shaped by geographic spaces. Reading a diverse array of texts and objects, from Ethiopian song and ancient Chinese travel writing to Japanese literature and aerial and nautical images of the Indian Ocean, the contributors decenter national borders to examine global flows of culture and the relationship between thinking at transnational and local scales. Throughout, they make a case for methods of inquiry that encourage innovative understandings of borders, oceans, and territories and that transgress disciplinary divides--back cover
