Contesting Nation

An innovative collection of essays on events and dynamics across South Asia, this volume addresses how violence marks the present in wars of direct and indirect conquest. Anti-colonial struggles that achieved independence to form postcolonial nation-states have consolidated themselves through prodigious violence that defines and disfigures communities and futures. This book examines the very borders such brutality enshrines and its intimate inscriptions upon bodies and memories, examining the performance of gendered violence through the spectacular and in everyday life, through wars, nationalisms and displacements. Women in and of South Asia offer inspired, gendered and contested histories of the discontinuous present, excavating nation-making and its intersections with projects of militarisation and cultural assertion, modernisation and globalisation, noting how Gujarat, post-9/11 mobilisations, and the war on Afghanistan and Iraq by Empire, signify the rapidity with which brutal events continue to encompass lives and cultures globally. Published by Zubaan.

Places may be used and interpreted in ways that differ from what is intended. This book examines the role of Sukarno s monuments and public places and how their meanings and uses have been transformed under successive regimes.

Historians  State and Politics in Twentieth Century Egypt

This book deals with the relationship between historical scholarship and politics in twentieth century Egypt.

In a detailed discussion of the literature, the study analyzes the political nature of competing interpretations and uses the examples of Copts and resident foreigners to demonstrate the dissonant challenges to the national discourse that testify to its limitations, deficiencies and silences.

Contesting Cultural Rehabilitation Disability Nation and Gender in Korea

Contesting Cultural Rehabilitation  Disability  Nation  and Gender in Korea

Finally, this dissertation concludes with a case study about leprosy that shows how the logic of cultural rehabilitation expands beyond regulating discourses of the state. Colonial leprosy management contributed to the "inferiority" of Korean culture and resulted in the ostracization of affected people. Contemporary representations of leprosy utilize marriage between men with a history of leprosy and nondisabled women as a symbolic bridge that redresses historical stigmatization. Such efforts reinforce the normative power of heterosexual marriage and leave disabled women unaddressed in their representational obscurity.

Transatlantic Central Europe

This book discusses the transnational set of practices connecting journals with other media in the mid-1980s, disseminating the idea of Central Europe simultaneously in East and West.

Transatlantic Central Europe

While there are still occasional uses of it today, the term "Central Europe" carries little of the charge that it did in the 1980s and early 1990s, and as a political and intellectual project it has receded from the horizon. Proponents of a distinct cultural profile of these countries—all involved now in the process of Transatlantic integration—used "Central European", as a contestation with the geo-political label of Eastern Europe. This book discusses the transnational set of practices connecting journals with other media in the mid-1980s, disseminating the idea of Central Europe simultaneously in East and West. A range of new methodologies, including GIS-mapping visualization, is used, repositing the political-cultural journal as one central node of a much larger cultural system. What has happened to the liberal humanist philosophy that "Central Europe" once evoked? In the early years of the transition era, the liberal humanist perspective shared by Havel, Konrád, Kundera, and Michnik was quickly replaced by an economic liberalism that evolved into neoliberal policies and practices. The author follows the trajectories of the concept into the present day, reading its material and intellectual traces in the postcommunist landscape. She explores how the current use of transnational, web-based media follows the logic and practice of an earlier, 'dissident' generation of writers.
