Download or read book Return Engagements written by Viet Lê and published by Duke University Press. This book was released on 2021-04-16 with total page 352 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Return Engagements artist and critic Việt Lê examines contemporary art in Cambodia and Việt Nam to rethink the entwinement of militarization, trauma, diaspora, and modernity in Southeast Asian art. Highlighting artists tied to Phnom Penh and Sài Gòn and drawing on a range of visual art as well as documentary and experimental films, Lê points out that artists of Southeast Asian descent are often expected to address the twin traumas of armed conflict and modernization, and shows how desirable art on these themes is on international art markets. As the global art market fetishizes trauma and violence, artists strategically align their work with those tropes in ways that Lê suggests allow them to reinvent such aesthetics and discursive spaces. By returning to and refashioning these themes, artists such as Tiffany Chung, Rithy Panh, and Sopheap Pich challenge categorizations of “diasporic” and “local” by situating themselves as insiders and outsiders relative to Cambodia and Việt Nam. By doing so, they disrupt dominant understandings of place, time, and belonging in contemporary art.
Download or read book Lost Loves written by Arshia Sattar and published by Penguin UK. This book was released on 2011-06-09 with total page 113 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The story of the Ramayana is a story of trial and tribulation, of the subtlety of right and wrong, of love and loss. The actions of Rama, the righteous but troubled prince of Ayodhya, have perplexed readers over millennia. Lost Loves is an attempt to come to terms with Rama and with the Ramayana – a text that Arshia Sattar has translated to acclaim. The essays in this book imagine what might have been the thoughts and feelings of Rama and Sita as they lived through those terrible years of trial and separation. They explore what happens to love in separation, and how public lives and private desires collide to devastating effect. By trying to see the events of their lives as Rama and Sita may have seen them, Arshia Sattar makes the existential conflicts of the Ramayana fascinatingly relevant and freshly inspiring for the contemporary reader.

Download or read book Remembrance of Lost Loves written by Gene Jackson and published by iUniverse. This book was released on 2009-11 with total page 166 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: All lives (and the loves contained within them) may be thought of as journeys. Each of us, at any certain time will occupy a space along such a pathway. It leads from youth, with its excitement, hope and foolishness, through mistakes, omissions and the recognition of self-delusion, by degrees into maturity and confidence, and finally to serenity. This is the story of one such journey. It is true in essence, and in such details as memory, at this distance, will allow. Those who might recognize themselves as fellow-travelers along this path may equally share feelings of nostalgia, regret, self-reproach and memories of love lost. None should feel any of these emotions past the level that I myself do, and all, I hope, will recall those times with affectionate remembrance.

Download or read book Dreams of Glory written by Richard K. Fenn and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2016-05-13 with total page 165 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Islam, Judaism, and Christianity are engaged not in a 'clash of civilizations' but in a sectarian conflict among branches of a single civilization traditionally steeped in apocalyptic imagery and beliefs. Apocalypticism is a religious luxury that modern civilizations can no longer afford. Many would agree that the propagandists of the Christian Right have raised apocalyptic tensions to a dangerous level since 9/11, but in this book Richard Fenn takes on the mainline church leaders for their role in promoting an apocalyptic view of history. Those who keep apocalyptic beliefs in a respectable place in religious faith and practice must bear their share of responsibility for global terror. It is not only tragic but ironic that the churches have given apocalyptic literature such a respectable place in their sacred texts, because the apocalyptic imagination itself has its sources in non-Biblical literature: the Hellenistic prophesies that gave comfort and courage to the victims of war in the near and middle east from the time of Alexander the Great and Darius. Fenn goes on to hold apocalyptic enthusiasts in the mainline churches, as well as on the Right, responsible for keeping old grievances alive in their demands for a day of final reckoning, and he demonstrates that totalitarian and imperial regimes have made effective use of apocalyptic literature to justify their own violence and to terrify their subjects and enemies.
Download or read book Story Magic written by Beth Ball and published by Grove Guardian Press. This book was released on 2021-06-01 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Cassandra, the goddess of fate, has often gifted her Chosen with prophetic visions, tellings of what is, was, and could yet be.Each Chosen must chart her own course through these tales, slowly coming to understand the narrative behind her Sight, what is for her to interpret and what is merely for her to See. The goddess of fate keeps her own counsel. She alone can tell why some, by their innate nature, change the weave of fate, while others simply follow the course of their own thread. But those of us who chart signs such as these have found a single strand running through the disparate patterns of the fate-weave—above all others, Cassandra chooses storytellers. It is they she favors with the ability to See. And among the saudad, people of story and legend, when one of their own takes the threads of fate into her hands, there is no telling what new narrative she may weave. Inside these pages, those who seek Sight will find story, and those who seek story, Sight. This is the way it ever has been and ever will be. Persephonie Arelle is not yet a Chosen of Cassandra, and the story of her becoming so may not ever come to be. However, I think you will agree with me in this—her story is much more than that of one who can See.
Download or read book Love The Intangible Currency written by Anna Esther and published by Anna Esther. This book was released on 2020-10-02 with total page 68 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Love, though often intangible, will always balance the books despite there being no balance sheet where love is concerned. If you take all your love experiences and add them up in life, you’ll still find it hard to quantify their intangible effect on your bottom line of happiness. But this doesn’t mean love should be eliminated from the equation. Quite the contrary, because no matter what we do in life, living without love is just a bunch of noise. (paraphrased from Bible) Despite the difficulty of solving the love problem, in this primer, I’ll talk about different aspects of love and its intangible impact on our life for better or worse.

Download or read book Projectland written by Holly High and published by University of Hawaii Press. This book was released on 2021-05-31 with total page 265 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In Projectland, anthropologist Holly High combines an engaging first-person narrative of her fieldwork with a political ethnography of Laos, more than forty years after the establishment of the Lao PDR and more than seven decades since socialist ideologues first “liberated” parts of upland country. In a remote village of Kandon, High finds that although socialism has declined significantly as an economic model, it is ascendant and thriving in the culture of politics and the politics of culture. Kandon is remarkable by any account. The villagers are ethnic Kantu (Katu), an ethnicity associated by early ethnographers above all with human sacrifice. They had repelled French control, and as the war went on, the revolutionary forces of Sekong were headquartered in Kandon territories. In 1996, Kandon village moved and resettled in a plateau area. “New Kandon” has become Sekong Province’s first certified “Culture Village,” the nation’s very first “Open Defecation Free and Model Health Village,” and the president of Laos personally granted the village a Labor Flag and Medal. High provides a unique and timely assessment of the Lao Party-state’s resettlement politics, and she recounts with skillful nuance the stories that are often cast into shadows by the usual focus on New Kandon as a success. Her book follows the lives of a small group of villagers who returned to the old village in the mountains, effectively defying policy but, in their words, obeying the presence that animates the land there. Revealing her sensibility with tremendous composure, High tells the experiences of women who, bound by steep bride-prices to often violent marriages, have tasted little of the socialist project of equality, unity, and independence. These women spoke to the author of “necessities” as a limit to their own lives. In a context where the state has defined the legitimate forms of success and agency, “necessity” emerged as a means of framing one’s life as nonconforming but also nonagentive.
