Download or read book Cities Under Siege written by Stephen Graham and published by Verso Books. This book was released on 2011-11-01 with total page 432 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: A powerful exposé of how political violence operates through the spaces of urban life. Cities are the new battleground of our increasingly urban world. From the slums of the global South to the wealthy financial centers of the West, Cities Under Siege traces the spread of political violence through the sites, spaces, infrastructure and symbols of the world’s rapidly expanding metropolitan areas. Drawing on a wealth of original research, Stephen Graham shows how Western militaries and security forces now perceive all urban terrain as a conflict zone inhabited by lurking shadow enemies. Urban inhabitants have become targets that need to be continually tracked, scanned and controlled. Graham examines the transformation of Western armies into high-tech urban counter-insurgency forces. He looks at the militarization and surveillance of international borders, the use of ‘security’ concerns to suppress democratic dissent, and the enacting of legislation to suspend civilian law. In doing so, he reveals how the New Military Urbanism permeates the entire fabric of urban life, from subway and transport networks hardwired with high-tech ‘command and control’ systems to the insidious militarization of a popular culture corrupted by the all-pervasive discourse of ‘terrorism.’
Download or read book Literature and Interregnum written by Patrick Dove and published by SUNY Press. This book was released on 2016-06-21 with total page 340 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Examines literary responses to the impact of economic and technological globalization in Latin America. Literature and “Interregnum” examines the unraveling of the political forms of modernity through readings of end-of-millennium literary texts by César Aira, Marcelo Cohen, Sergio Chejfec, Diamela Eltit, and Roberto Bolaño. The opening of national spaces to the global capitalist system in the 1980s culminates in the suspension of key principles of modernity, most notably that of political sovereignty. While the neoliberal model subjugates modern forms of social organization and political decision making to an economic rationale, the market is unable to provide a new ordering principle that could fill the empty place formerly occupied by the national figure of the sovereign. The result is a situation that resembles what the Italian political philosopher Antonio Gramsci termed “interregnum,” an in-between time in which “the old [order] is dying and the new cannot be born.” The recoding of history as literary form provides occasions for reconsidering modern conceptualizations of aesthetic experience, mood, temporality, thought, politics, ethical experience, as well as of literature itself as social institution. In his analysis, Patrick Dove seeks to create dialogues between literature and theoretical perspectives, including Continental philosophy, political thought, psychoanalysis, and sociology of globalization. The author highlights the connections between mass media, technology, politics, and economics. “This is a first-rate, timely, and rigorously theorized intervention that everyone in the field of Latin American literary and cultural studies will have to read, teach, discuss, and cite.” — Charles Hatfield, author of The Limits of Identity: Politics and Poetics in Latin America “Transitioning from literary analysis of Latin American novels to political theory, philosophy, sociology, history, and back, Dove brilliantly performs one of the most difficult tasks of the critic: to think the ‘history of the present.’ Rather than engaging in blind celebrations of globalization, Dove fearlessly looks straight into the eye of the storm, deploying new vocabularies to helps us grasp contemporary precariousness, new forms of violence, and increasing inequality. In so doing, he mounts a bracing critique of the almost comedic way in which our outdated critical weapons keep firing at the wrong targets. A must read for Latinamericanists and comparatists, as well as for scholars interested in putting interdisciplinarity to work.” — Moira Fradinger, author of Binding Violence: Literary Visions of Political Origins

Download or read book Feminism Postfeminism and Legal Theory written by Dorota Gozdecka and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2019-01-08 with total page 170 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: There is much debate about postfeminism, what it is, and its role in feminist politics. Whilst postfeminism has become increasingly influential in the study of literature, popular culture, and philosophy, it has so far received comparatively little attention in law. This book aims to remedy this situation. The book brings together feminist legal scholars working in different contexts to examine the idea of postfeminism and assess its contemporary relevance. It explores a range of questions including the following: Does postfeminism describe an age that follows modernism, an age where identity politics has realised its goals and feminism is no longer needed? Or does postfeminism describe the feminism of a postmodernist age where identity can mean anything at all? Or, differently again, does the term capture a ‘new feminism’ that discredits feminism and attempts to reshape its political consciousness? And what might the answers to these questions mean for law and legal theory, and a feminist politics of law reform?
Download or read book Thresholds of Illiteracy written by Abraham Acosta and published by Fordham Univ Press. This book was released on 2014-04-03 with total page 292 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Thresholds of Illiteracy reevaluates Latin American theories and narratives of cultural resistance by advancing the concept of “illiteracy” as a new critical approach to understanding scenes or moments of social antagonism. “Illiteracy,” Acosta claims, can offer us a way of talking about what cannot be subsumed within prevailing modes of reading, such as the opposition between writing and orality, that have frequently been deployed to distinguish between modern and archaic peoples and societies. This book is organized as a series of literary and cultural analyses of internationally recognized postcolonial narratives. It tackles a series of the most important political/aesthetic issues in Latin America that have arisen over the past thirty years or so, including indigenism, testimonio, the Zapatista movement in Chiapas, and migration to the United States via the U.S.–Mexican border. Through a critical examination of the “illiterate” effects and contradictions at work in these resistant narratives, the book goes beyond current theories of culture and politics to reveal radically unpredictable forms of antagonism that advance the possibility for an ever more democratic model of cultural analysis.
