Situated within contemporary posthumanism, this volume offers theoretical and practical approaches to materiality in Greek tragedy. Established and emerging scholars explore how works of the three major Greek tragedians problematize objects and affect, providing fresh readings of some of the masterpieces of Aeschylus, Sophocles, and Euripides. The so-called new materialisms have complemented the study of objects as signifiers or symbols with an interest in their agency and vitality, their sensuous force and psychosomatic impact-and conversely their resistance and irreducible aloofness. At the same time, emotion has been recast as material “affect,” an intense flow of energies between bodies, animate and inanimate. Powerfully contributing to the current critical debate on materiality, the essays collected here destabilize established interpretations, suggesting alternative approaches and pointing toward a newly robust sense of the physicality of Greek tragedy.

Despite the recent history of violence and destruction, Bosnia-Herzegovina holds a positive place in history, marked by a continuous interweaving of different religious cultures. The most expansive period in that regard is the Ottoman rule that lasted here nearly five centuries. As many Bosnians accepted Islam, the process of Islamization took on different directions and meanings, only some of which are recorded in the official documents. This book underscores the importance of material culture, specifically gravestones, funerary inscriptions and images, in tracing and understanding more subtle changes in Bosnia’s religious landscape and the complex cultural shifts and exchange between Christianity and Islam in this area. Gravestones are seen as cultural spaces that inscribe memory, history, and heritage in addition to being texts that display, in image and word, first-hand information about the deceased. In tackling these topics and ideas, the study is situated within several contextual, theoretical, and methodological frameworks. Raising questions about religious identity, history, and memory, the study unpacks the cultural and historical value of gravestones and other funerary markers and bolsters their importance in understanding the region’s complexity and improving its visibility in global discussions around multiculturalism and religious pluralism. Drawing upon several disciplinary methods, the book has much to offer anyone looking for a better understanding of the intersection of Christianity and Islam, as well as those with an interest in death studies.

An anthology comprising twenty-nine essays, Eternal Stone: Great Buildings of India is a collection of meditative moments reflecting the architectýs private understanding of architecture. Having chosen a favourite building or monument, each architect narrates his or her individual experience of it, adding personal insights to illuminate design, historical facts and supplementing these with sketches, drawings and photographs. There are essays on public buildings, privates spaces of worship and of learning. The architects also dwell on aspects of the ancient and the modern, utilitarian architecture and buildings for the sake of beauty alone. While K.T. Ravindran examines the finer points of Rashtrapati Bhavan, self-confessed ýRoof Collectorý Laurie Baker takes us to the Padmabhapuram Palace, and Gautam Bhatia unravels the mystique of the shadows of the IIM, Ahmedabad. The reader travels across the country, gazing at domes and tombs in Bijapur and Agra and Gothic gargoyles at Victoria Terminus, encountering the geometric precision and magic of the Jantar Mantar, and absorbing the serenity of Hauz Khas. From palaces to temples, caves to churches, forts to stepwells, this is a journey where the architect is philosopher, guide and storyteller.
