書名:Big data and competition policy

登錄號:1204006

ISBN:9780198788133

作者:Stucke, Maurice E.

出版社:Oxford University Press

出版年:2016

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Big Data and Big Analytics are a big deal today. Big Data is playing a pivotal role in many companies' strategic decision-making. Companies are striving to acquire a 'data advantage' over rivals. Data-driven mergers are increasing. These data-driven business strategies and mergers raise significant implications for privacy, consumer protection and competition law. At the same time, European and United States' competition authorities are beginning to consider the implications of a data-driven economy on competition policy. In 2015, the European Commission launched a competition inquiry into the e-commerce sector and issued a statement of objections in its Google investigation. The implications of Big Data on competition policy will likely be a part of the mix.

Big Data and Competition Policy is the first work to offer a detailed description of the important new issue of Big Data and explains how it relates to competition laws and policy, both in the EU and US. The book helps bring the reader quickly up to speed on what is Big Data, its competitive implications, the competition authorities' approach to data-driven mergers and business strategies, and their current approach's strengths and weaknesses.

Written by two recognized leading experts in competition law, this accessible work offers practical guidance and theoretical discussion of the potential benefits (including data-driven efficiencies) and concerns for the practitioner, policy maker, and academic alike.

作者:Turner, Jonathan D. C.

出版社:Oxford University Press

出版年:2015

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

The interface between intellectual property rights and competition policy is one of the most important and difficult areas of EU commercial law and corresponding national laws. The exploitation of exclusive rights can conflict with competition law, which aims to preserve competition as the driving force in efficient markets. These conflicts have to be resolved against the background of a complicated relationship between EU law, national laws, and international treaties relating to intellectual property.

This second edition of an extremely well-reviewed work covers numerous developments that have taken place since the first edition, including the revision of the Technology Transfer Block Exemption and Guidelines, the adoption of a new block exemption for Research and Development, revised Guidelines on horizontal co-operation, the implications of the UsedSoft judgment on exhaustion of rights, EU legislation regulating collecting societies, and cases concerning the abuse of dominant position by misuse of the patent system such AstraZeneca v Commission.

The book contains a detailed explanation of the application of EU competition law to all types of intellectual property and the resulting regulatory framework for the exploitation and licensing of intellectual property rights. It has practical analysis of such issues as technology transfer and pools, standards, research and development, collecting societies, franchising, and merchandising.

書名:The law of professional-client confidentiality : regulating the disclosure of confidential personal

作者:Pattenden, Rosemary

出版社:Oxford University Press

出版年:2016

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book examines the disclosure and withholding of all forms of confidential information handled by professionals. Fully revised and updated, the new edition examines the numerous recent developments in the law, particularly following revelations by the media of the interception of professional confidences by phone hacking and other means. Its primary focus is on the law of England and Wales, but it includes insights from the secondary literature and case law of Australia, Canada, Ireland, New Zealand, and Scotland. This allows it to predict how English courts may fill gaps in the law, and makes it a useful resource for practitioners in other common law jurisdictions.

The book begins with a discussion of the basic principles of confidentiality, including types of confidential information, confidentiality obligations, disclosures, and confidentiality obligation. Part I examines the legal instruments for the enforcement of confidentiality, including contractual obligations, tort of misuse of private information, equitable wrongs, actions against third parties, civil remedies and criminal offences, and remedies beyond the courts. Part II discusses justified disclosure, including those relating to public interest, official investigations, administration of justice, consent and waiver, and lapsed confidentiality. Part III analyses the grounds for justified non-disclosure, including legal professional privilege, public interest immunity, contractual or equitable obligations, data protection and freedom of information, privacy protection, and non-disclosure to client. Finally, Part IV discusses limiting the extent of a lawful disclosure, dealing with circulation restrictions, public reporting, anonymity, court attendance restrictions, and collateral use.

This is an essential reference for those advising either the professional or the individual client on issues relating to the disclosure of confidential personal information.

內容簡介:

This book explores the key substantive, methodological, and institutional issues raised by the proposed EU unitary patent system contained in EU Regulations 1257/2012 and 1260/2012, and the Unified Patent Court Agreement 2013. The originality of this work lies in its uniquely broad approach, taking seven different perspectives - historical, constitutional, international, competition, economic, institutional, and forward-looking - on the proposed EU patent system. It offers an appraisal of the proposed unitary system, from experts in patent law, EU constitutional law, private international law, competition law, and economics, as well as leading figures from the worlds of legal practice, the bench, and the European Patent Office. The unitary patent system raises issues of foundational importance in the fields of patent and intellectual property law, EU law, and legal harmonization. The book will be of wide and enduring interest to academics, policy makers, decision makers, and practitioners.

書名:Patent management and valuation : the strategic and geographical dimension

ISBN:9781138926424

作者:Thoma, Grid, editor

出版社:Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group

出版年:2017

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Research on patent valuation has become increasingly important in academic and policy circles in the last few decades. In part, this is the outcome of the wide consensus that innovation is a crucial ingredient for growth at various levels. On the other hand, there has also been an overcoming of growth models unilaterally focused on technological-oriented approaches. This book presents novel and original research on patent value determinants, which are intrinsic or extrinsic to the innovator's business model.

Grid Thoma has undertaken a long study on the strategic factors affecting patent valuation, bringing extensive quantitative evidences across various geographical and institutional contexts. Beforehand, the valuation of the patent real options is appraised when the innovator can postpone the additional investment required for the patent's successful exploitation. Then, he analyses what other complemental IP strategies are combined with patenting that in turn directly affect the value of patents. Moreover, the book scrutinizes the so-called 'strategic patenting' hypothesis according to which innovators obtain patents for other reasons beyond gaining IP protection.

A second order of strategic factors affecting the value of patents resides at the outset of the invention process. These are constituted by knowledge spillovers, which are typically mediated by the local geographical context where the invention process takes place. The analysis shows that the contribution of knowledge spillovers from business and nonbusiness organizations to the value of the patented R&D constitutes a relevant aspect for an innovator's decision making.

This thoughtful, cutting-edge research book is vital reading for researchers, academics, and policy decision makers in the area of in market valuation, management of technology, innovation management, and economic geography.

書名:Antitrust and patent law

作者:Devlin, Alan (Alan James)

出版社:Oxford University Press

出版年:2016

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Patents lie at the heart of modern competition policy. In the new economy, firms use them variously to protect their R&D, to bolster their market positions, and to exclude rivals. Antitrust enforcers thus scrutinize patentees to ensure that they do not use their intellectual-property rights to suppress competition. Today's antitrust lawyers must therefore navigate intellectual-property issues and advise clients on the procurement and assertion of patents. It is no easy task. In granting exclusive rights, patents have an uneasy relationship with competition law, which struggles in turn to apply policies developed in bricks and mortar industries to the world of technology.

This book explores the acquisition and use of patents under the law of the world's two most important antitrust regimes: the United States and the European Union. It examines antitrust rules governing technology transfer, standard-essential technologies, patent aggregation, open and closed systems, coercive licensing terms that amount to misuse, evergreening tactics in the pharmaceutical industry like 'paying for delay', and patentee immunity in suing for infringement. To contextualize that analysis, the book explores the theoretical relationship between patents and competition law, addresses the U.S. 'patent crisis', the move towards unitary patents in Europe, and differences between the US and EU competition regimes. Further, the book explores idiosyncrasies governing the core antitrust questions of market definition, market power, and anticompetitive conduct in the patent setting. In doing so, the book allows those who practice, enforce, teach, or study competition law to understand the subtleties of this fascinating subject.

內容簡介:

Die Neuauflage: Das von Achterberg und Püttner in den Jahren 1990/91 erstmals herausgegebene Große Lehrbuch zum Besonderen Verwaltungsrecht erscheint nun in dritter Auflage dreibändig mit einem komplett neuen Herausgeberteam in der Reihe "C.F. Müller Lehr- und Handbuch". Das Werk erleichtert Juristen die Einarbeitung auch in weniger geläufige Bereiche des Besonderen Verwaltungsrechts und macht immer wieder den Zusammenhang mit der Dogmatik des Allgemeinen Verwaltungsrechts erkennbar. Es schlägt aber auch Brücken vom akademischen Verwaltungsrecht in die verzweigte Praxis und führt dem Leser den inneren Zusammenhang der Materien des Besonderen Verwaltungsrechts anschaulich vor Augen. Die Neuauflage zeichnet sich durch eine viel stärkere Einbeziehung des europäischen und des internationalen Rechts, sowie der Betonung des Wirtschaftsverwaltungsrechts aus. Das hatte zur Folge, dass ein eigener Band 1 sich nun ausschließlich dem Öffentlichen Wirtschaftsrecht widmet. Das Werk richtet sich an Referendare und Berufsanfänger aber auch an wissenschaftlich interessierte Praktiker in Verwaltung und Anwaltschaft. Band 1, herausgegeben von Prof. Dr. Dirk Ehlers, beschäftigt sich mit dem öffentlichen Wirtschaftsrecht und gliedert sich in fünf Teile: - Grundlagen des Öffentlichen Wirtschaftsrechts - Internationales Wirtschaftsrecht - Europäisches Wirtschaftsrecht - Grundlagen des nationalen Öffentlichen Wirtschaftsrecht - Besondere Gebiete des Öffentlichen Wirtschaftsrechts -- Ordnungsrecht der Wirtschaft -- Wirtschaftsregulierung -- Wirtschaftslenkung -- Ver- und Entsorgungsrecht -- Finanzmarktrecht -- Technikrecht -- Kartellrecht

書名:Antitrust law in the new economy : Google, Yelp, LIBOR, and the control of information

作者:Patterson, Mark R.

出版社:Harvard University Press

出版年:2017

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Markets run on information. Buyers make decisions by relying on their knowledge of the products available, and sellers decide what to produce based on their understanding of what buyers want. But the distribution of market information has changed, as consumers increasingly turn to sources that act as intermediaries for information―companies like Yelp and Google. Antitrust Law in the New Economy considers a wide range of problems that arise around one aspect of information in the marketplace: its quality.

Sellers now have the ability and motivation to distort the truth about their products when they make data available to intermediaries. And intermediaries, in turn, have their own incentives to skew the facts they provide to buyers, both to benefit advertisers and to gain advantages over their competition. Consumer protection law is poorly suited for these problems in the information economy. Antitrust law, designed to regulate powerful firms and prevent collusion among producers, is a better choice. But the current application of antitrust law pays little attention to information quality.

Mark Patterson discusses a range of ways in which data can be manipulated for competitive advantage and exploitation of consumers (as happened in the LIBOR scandal), and he considers novel issues like “confusopoly” and sellers’ use of consumers’ personal information in direct selling. Antitrust law can and should be adapted for the information economy, Patterson argues, and he shows how courts can apply antitrust to address today’s problems.

內容簡介:

This book is the first to analyze the compliance of different types of a breeder's exception to patent rights with article 30 of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights. This type of exception allows using protected biological matter for breeding new varieties of plants. The breeder’s exception is widely accepted under plant variety legislation, but it is not common under patent laws despite the fact that patent rights often cover plant varieties. Only few European countries have adopted such an exception. After the entry into force of the Agreement on a Unified Patent Court, the exception will be mandatory for all European Union Member states. Based on a legal and economic approach, this book offers guidance to those countries that need to incorporate a breeder's exception into their national patent systems and suggests the importance of the exception for promoting plant breeding activities.

內容簡介:

Information society projects promise wealth and better services to those countries which digitise and encourage the consumer and citizen to participate. As paper recedes into the background and digital data becomes the primary resource in the information society, what does this mean for privacy? Can there be privacy when every communication made through ever-developing ubiquitous devices is recorded? Data protection legislation developed as a reply to large scale centralised databases which contained incorrect data and where data controllers denied access and refused to remedy information flaws. Some decades later the technical world is very different one, and whilst data protection remains important, the cries for more privacy-oriented regulation in commerce and eGov continue to rise. What factors should underpin the creation of new means of regulation? The papers in this collection have been drawn together to develop the positive and negative effects upon the information society which privacy regulation implies.

內容簡介:

The international battle against Internet pirates has been heating up. Increasingly law enforcement is paying attention to book piracy as ebook publishing gains an ever-larger market share. With this threat to their health and even survival, publishers and authors must act much like the music, film, and software giants that have waged war against pirates for the past two decades. Now, The Battle against Internet Piracy opens a discussion on what happens to the victims of piracy. Drawing from a large number of interviews—from writers, self-publishers, mainstream publishers, researchers, students, admitted pirates, free speech advocates, attorneys, and local and international law enforcement officials—the text speaks to such issues as:

Why pirates have acted and how they feel about it

The conflict over constitutional rights and piracy

The current laws surrounding Internet piracy

Examples of cases taken against some pirates

Alternatives to piracy

Personal experiences of being ripped off

The ways piracy affects different industries and how they’ve responded

Governance

State

Author Gini Graham Scott prepares readers to arm themselves against these modern perils by learning about copyright, infringement, and how to prevent, combat, and end book piracy.

書名:Farmers' crop varieties and farmers' rights : challenges in taxonomy and law

作者:Halewood, Michael

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2016

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Over the last 50 years there has been a growing appreciation of the important role that farmers play in the development and conservation of crop genetic diversity, and the contribution of that diversity to agro-ecosystem resilience and food security. This book examines policies that aim to increase the share of benefits that farmers receive when others use the crop varieties that they have developed and managed, i.e., ‘farmers varieties’. In so doing, the book addresses two fundamental questions. The first question is ‘how do farmer management practices – along with other factors such as environment and the breeding systems of plants – affect the evolution and maintenance of discrete farmers’ varieties?’ The second question is ‘how can policies that depend on being able to identify discrete plant varieties accommodate the agricultural realities associated with the generation, use and maintenance of farmers’ varieties?’ This focus on discreteness is topical because there are no fixed, internationally recognized taxonomic or legal definitions of farmers’ varieties. And that presents a challenge when developing policies that involve making specific, discrete farmers’ varieties the subject of legal rights or privileges.

The book includes contributions from a wide range of experts including agronomists, anthropologists, geneticists, biologists, plant breeders, lawyers, development practitioners, activists and farmers. It includes case studies from Asia, Africa, Latin America and Europe where, in response to a diversity of contributing factors, there have been efforts to develop policies that provide incentives or rewards to farmers as stewards of farmers’ varieties in ways that are sensitive to the cultural, taxonomic and legal complexities involved. The book situates these initiatives in the context of the evolving discourse and definition of ‘farmers' rights’, presenting insights for future policy initiatives.

內容簡介:

A trade secret is confidential, commercially valuable information that provides a company with a competitive advantage, such as customer lists, methods of production, marketing strategies, pricing information, and chemical formulae. Well-known examples of trade secrets include the formula for Coca-Cola, the recipe for Kentucky Fried Chicken, and the algorithm used by Google’s search engine. To succeed in the global marketplace, U.S. firms depend upon their trade secrets, which increasingly are becoming their most valuable intangible assets. However, U.S. companies annually suffer billions of dollars in losses due to the theft of their trade secrets by employees, corporate competitors, and even foreign governments. Stealing trade secrets has increasingly involved the use of cyberspace, advanced computer technologies, and mobile communication devices, thus making the theft relatively anonymous and difficult to detect. This book discusses the theft issues, legal protections and industry perspectives on trade secrets.

內容簡介:

Farmers' Rights are essential for maintaining crop genetic diversity, which is the basis of all food and agricultural production in the world. The International Treaty on Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture recognizes Farmers' Rights and provides for relevant measures. However, implementation is slow, and in many countries there is resistance.

This book shows the necessity of realizing Farmers' Rights for poverty alleviation and food security, the practical possibilities of doing so, and the potential gains for development and society at large. It provides decision-makers and practitioners with a conceptual framework for understanding Farmers’ Rights and success stories showing how each of the elements of Farmers' Rights can be realized in practice. The success stories have brought substantial achievements as regards one or more of the four elements of Farmers' Rights: the rights of farmers to save, use, exchange and sell farm-saved seed; the protection of traditional knowledge; benefit- sharing; and participation in decision-making.

This does not mean that these examples are perfect. Challenges encountered on the way are conveyed and offer important lessons. The stories represent different regions and localities, including Europe, Asia, Africa and Latin America, as well as various categories of stakeholders and types of initiatives and policies.

內容簡介:

Across the world, developing countries are attempting to balance the international standards of intellectual property concerning pharmaceutical patents against the urgent need for accessible and affordable medicines. In this timely and necessary book, Monirul Azam examines the attempts of several developing countries to walk this fine line. He evaluates the experiences of Brazil, China, India, and South Africa for lessons to guide Bangladesh and developing nations everywhere. Azam's legal expertise, concern for public welfare, and compelling grasp of principal case studies make Intellectual Property and Public Health in the Developing World a definitive work. The developing world is striving to meet the requirements of the World Trade Organization's TRIPS Agreement on intellectual property. This book sets out with lucidity and insight the background of the TRIPS Agreement and its implications for pharmaceutical patents, the consequences for developing countries, and the efforts of certain representative nations to comply with international stipulations while still maintaining local industry and public health. Azam then brings the weight of this research to bear on the particular case of Bangladesh, offering a number of specific policy recommendations for the Bangladeshi government-and for governments the world over. Intellectual Property and Public Health in the Developing World is a must-read for public policy-makers, academics and students, non-governmental organizations, and readers everywhere who are interested in making sure that developing nations meet the health care needs of their people.

出版年:2014

內容簡介:

This book examines one of the greatest social and legal concerns of the modern age: social networking and the internet. The growing law and issues of, and created by, social networking and related websites involve real and diverse concerns. The concerns face the website operators, users, parents, schools, universities, employers, organisations, outsource organisations, the police, lawyers, courts, rights organisations and policymakers.Social networking is wonderful, yet staggering - in a short space of time, user populations greater than the populations of nation states have joined social networks. One social networking website reports to have amassed over 1 billion regular users. Yet, the legal issues (and others) involved with social networking and related websites are getting as many media headlines as the technologies themselves. Some of these are similar to established legal issues, however, with increasing frequency, the issues are entirely new. In addition, the scale of the issues are at a level unprecedented in collective memory. If that was not enough, the pace of the legal issues which must be considered and, more importantly, the pace and urgency with which they must be dealt with, add significant temporal pressures. This timely and appropriate book outlines the new law and issues relating to social networking. It offers a strong international comparative element and examines various legal jurisdictions. The growing law and issues of, and created by, social networking and related websites involve real and diverse concerns for policy. To victims, lawyers, parents, society, and policy makers, social networking in its various forms can be considered one of the most pressing legal issue today, with more issues and concerns than occur in any other field of contemporary law.

Table of Contents include: Internet and Technology * Privacy and Data Protection * Social Networking Policies * Advertising and Marketing * Beacon Settlement * Europe against Facebook * Facebook Audit * Laws 'Re-Phormed'? * Data Breaches * Tagging * Evidential Issues * Cloud Computing * Employees * Educational Institutions * Tracking the Trackers * Personal Relations * Social Networking after Death * Profiles in Purgatory * A Critical Approach to the Right to Be Forgotten * Children and Social Networking * Social Networking and Internet Access * Peer to Peer and Privacy * Social Networking and Sports * Social Networking and the Courts * Privacy by Design * Data Protection Audits * The Future.

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

当企画は、企業という観点から法をみて体系的にまとめたもの。本書では、企業が活動を行っていく上で一般的に関わる法(ビジネス法という)であって、企業組織と企業取引に関する法を中心に捉えている。 本書は、これらのビジネス法について、1つの試案として、企業組織法と企業取引法を中心に位置付けつつ整理することで体系を提起するものである。 なお、本書で扱う「法」は、法律その他の法令、判例だけでなく、行政のガイドライン・解釈基準、会計基準、業界団体のガイドライン、約款、慣行などのいわゆるソフトローも対象とし、さらに、条約のほか、条例も限定的ではあるが含んでいる。学術書とは趣を異にし、実務で役立つことを重視するため、このように幅広い対象を含めている。

また、執筆内容も実務を重視した具体例も適宜取り入れたほか、10回に及び開催した「ビジネス法体系研究会」において企業の方にも参加していただきつつ議論した目次構成を活かし、企業法務において使いやすい実務体系書を目指している。 国際ビジネス法編については、海外活動や海外事業の展開に関する経営や運営について掘り下げている。 代表的な進出形態として、企業が単独で活動拠点を構築するための組織に関する基本的な問題を解説するほか、企業買収や経営統合を含め、国際的な事業提携や合弁事業、国際的なジョイントベンチャーに関する法的問題、さらには国際的な企業経営、事業運営に関する法的問題をも解説を試みている。

內容簡介:

In the age of globalization, trademarks have become more and more important assets not only of companies but also of countries. The contribution of well-known trademarks such as COCA-COLA, IBM, NOKIA, TOYOTA, and HONDA into the national economies is very large and quite remarkable. The traditional principles of trademark law have been challenged by the modern conditions of the world economy. Especially in the case of the well-known trademark, that protection is based not only on national law but also on the international legal framework. International attempts during the past time in order to build up a global regime of well-known trademark protection have been realized by many international conventions and treaties. Those have established legal foundations for the protection of well-known trademarks in worldwide. From a theoretical perspective, well-known trademarks and the protection of well-known trademarks have increasingly become important topics engaging the thoughts of scholars all over the world. There have been many books and research works dealing with issues concerning well-known trademark protection in theory and legislation.

書名:International patent rights harmonization : the case of China

作者:Hu, Weinian

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2017

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

With reference to China, this book examines the course of international patent rights harmonisation; its characteristics as well as impediments. It evaluates the case of China’s patent law development over the course of the last three decades by drawing on the most up-to-date Chinese language sources. In the process, the volume focuses on China’s patent legislation, its achievements and weaknesses, as well as the intrinsic limitations, especially as far as enforcement is concerned. The author pays close attention to the unique societal background in China, a country that did not provide constitutional recognition to private property rights until 2004 and where a property law entered into force as late as 2013, 30 years after the first promulgation of the patent law.

Global trade policy makers, IP professionals and businesses will benefit from the insights presented by the chapters as they will help them to appreciate the achievements and the controversies pursuant to China’s efforts in patent protection. While serving as a useful case study for countries seeking to leverage patent protection as a driver for economic development, the book will equally facilitate Chinese legislature to reflect on its patent legislation development, specifically on legislative policy choices.

An additional analytical strength of the volume is that it compares the Chinese patent legislation with the American Invents Act and the European Patent Convention. It discovers the differences between the three patent legislations by using the minimum patent protection standards set down by the TRIPS Agreement as the benchmark. The results of the comparisons suggest that China has successfully harmonised its patent legislation with the global patent protection system, and often opts for higher patent protection standards. The book also considers whether China could learn lessons from Japan and India in their respective patent legislation and policy choices. With China undertaking a fourth patent law amendment, the provisions contained in the second draft of the Patent Law 2015, which was published in December 2015, are included in the analysis.

作者:Lundqvist, Björn

出版社:Edward Elgar Publishing

出版年:2015

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Due to disagreement between policy makers and innovation economists, antitrust agencies have been rather confused over when and how to use competition law in reference to research and development (R&D) joint ventures and collaborations. This important book dissects the antitrust treatment, in the US and under EU law, of joint R&D ventures from the 1970s to the present day. It provides a comprehensive analysis of the modifications and amendments made to legal acts and guidelines. It also looks at the slow shift in the scant case-law detected both under the antitrust laws of the USA and the competition rules of the EU. Bjorn Lundqvist demonstrates that the prevailing antitrust policies towards R&D collaborations are very similar in the US and EU, and that they both mirror a lenient attitude towards collaboration between competitors. Nonetheless, ultimately, the book shows that a more stringent attitude from the antitrust establishment can be discerned, and that the concept of the "innovation market" could possibly soon have a revival. This fascinating book caters to both researchers and practitioners in competition law and economics. The easy to follow charts and boxes will be particularly useful for practitioners when setting up R&D joint ventures.

內容簡介:

Legal conflicts between trademark holders, social media providers and internet users have become manifest in light of wide scale, unauthorised use of the trademark logo on social media in recent decades. Arguing for the protection of the trademark logo against unauthorised use in a commercial environment, this book explores why protection enforcement should be made automatic. A number of issues are discussed including the scalability of litigation on a case-by-case basis, and whether safe harbour provisions for online service providers should be substituted for strict liability.

Copyright Law in an Age of Limitations and Exceptions brings together leading copyright scholars and the field's foremost authorities to consider the critical role of copyright law in shaping the complex social, economic, and political interaction critical for cultural productivity and human flourishing. The book addresses defining issues facing copyright law today, including justifications for copyright law's limitations and exceptions (L&Es), the role of authors in copyright, users' rights, fair use politics and reform, the three-step test in European copyright law, the idea/expression principle with respect to functional works, limits on the use of L&Es in scientific innovation, and L&Es as a tool for economic development in international copyright law. The book also presents case studies on the historical development of the concept of 'neighboring rights' and on Harvard Law School's pioneering model of global copyright education, made possible by the exercise of L&Es across national borders.

內容簡介:

This unique book provides a comprehensive account of the patent misuse doctrine and its relationship with antitrust law. Created to remedy and discourage misconduct by patent owners a century ago, its proper role today is debated more than ever before. Innovation and competition take place in increasingly complex environments that demand a clear understanding of where illegality ends and legitimate corporate strategy begins. The book is an essential resource for the curious, the expert and all those engaged in deciding what patent misuse means and should mean today. In addition to in-depth doctrinal and policy perspectives, it looks at patent misuse through the eyes of today's leading practitioners, judges, government officials and academics. It also presents a qualitative analysis of modern misuse case law spanning 1953 to 2012. The result is a compelling account that lays out an important doctrinal, policy and empirical framework for future cases and scholarship. Patent law students and scholars will find the author's comprehensive study of popular and actual perceptions of the misuse doctrine a valuable resource, while practitioners, government officials and judges will appreciate the predictive value of the author's findings.

內容簡介:

Copyright specialists have often focused on the exploitation of copyright of music and on infringement, but not on the question of how copyright conceptualises music. This highly topical volume brings together specialists in music, musicology and copyright law, providing a genuinely interdisciplinary research approach. It compares and contrasts the concepts of copyright law with those of music and musical performance. Several tensions emerge between the ideas of music as a living art and of the musical work as a basis for copyright protection. The expert contributors discuss the notions of the musical work, performance, originality, authorship in music and in copyright, and co-ownership from the disciplinary perspectives of music, musicology and copyright law. The book also examines the role of the Musicians' Union in the evolution of performers' rights in UK copyright law, and, in an empirical study, the transaction costs theory for notice-and-takedown regimes in relation to songs uploaded on YouTube. This unique study offers an interdisciplinary perspective for academics, policymakers and legal practitioners seeking a state-of-the-art understanding of music and copyright law.

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

We live in an era in which privacy and data protection are daily news items. This tendency demonstrates that privacy and data protection are taken seriously in wide circles of our society. Most of the time, however, issues relating to privacy and data protection are not newsworthy because these rights have been so well protected. It is the scandals that make the news, the latest example being the NSA affair which has dominated the news for months. These news stories create a feeling of discomfort and lead to diminishing trust - diminishing trust of citizens in companies they deal with, in their governments, in supranational entities such as the European Union, in the law, and diminishing trust between countries. This book defines the restoration of this trust in relation to privacy and data protection as the most pressing challenge. It reflects on the state of play in the area of privacy and personal data protection in Europe and the United States at the start of 2014. The authors discuss the issues from different perspectives, such as constitutional values and the role of the judiciary, the role of the legislator and independent control, and transatlantic relations. This volume collects contributions of a large number of outstanding academic scholars, legal practitioners, regulators and politicians from Europe as well as the United States. All contributions are written in honour of Peter Hustinx, the first European Data Protection Supervisor who will step down in 2014, after ten successful years in office and after a long and impressive career in the area of privacy and data protection. A recommended read for everyone interested in privacy and data protection and more generally in the complex relations between law and the information society.

書名:The ethical and legal consequences of posthumous reproduction : arrogance, avarice, and anguish

作者:Lewis, Browne

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2017

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Posthumous reproduction refers to the procedure that enables a child to be conceived using the gametes of a dead person. Advances in reproductive technology mean it is now possible to assist in creating a life after you die, and in recent years the number of women who have attempted to get pregnant using posthumous reproduction has increased. However, the law in many jurisdictions has not put regulations in place to deal with the ethical and legal consequences that arise as a result of posthumous reproduction.

This is the first book to exclusively focus on posthumous reproduction. The book comprehensively explores the legal and ethical issues surrounding posthumous reproduction in a number of jurisdictions including the US, Israel, the UK and France. The book looks at a number of issues including: ascertaining the wishes of the dead and protecting the reproductive rights of men who have deposited frozen sperm in clinics prior to their deaths; cases involving people who want to acquire fresh sperm from deceased or incompetent men and determining who should have the right to accept the sperm; identifying the parents of the posthumously conceived child; and discussing the need to promote the best interests of the child. The book critically examines the current laws that are in place and proposes additional regulations and policies in order to effectively regulate posthumous reproduction.

出版年:2015

內容簡介:

This book examines the relationship between the legal extension of copyright duration as an enduring means of copyright protection and the growth of the UK book publishing industry as a typical creative industry reliant on copyright. The book draws on Schumpeter’s theory of creative destruction to analyse the implications of copyright law and policy on the book industry and illustrate the dynamic interaction between copyright expansion and the growth of the creative industries. The book reviews the historical development of UK copyright expansion and also considers copyright in the digital age. It explores the legal and economic concerns about copyright protection in general, and the expansion of copyright duration in particular. Using an innovative empirical method, it explores whether the expansion of the duration of copyright promotes or precludes the growth of book publishing industry. It goes on to suggest changes to copyright policy which would have an impact on the economics of innovation in the creative industries.

Bioethics has long been accepted as an interdisciplinary field. The recent 'empirical turn' in bioethics is however, creating challenges that move beyond those of simple interdisciplinary collaboration, as researchers grapple with the methodological, empirical and meta-ethical challenges of combining the normative and the empirical, as well as navigating the difficulties that can arise from attempts to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. Empirical Bioethics: Practical and Theoretical Perspectives brings together contributions from leading experts in the field which speak to these challenges, providing insight into how they can be understood and suggestions for how they might be overcome. Combining discussions of meta-ethical challenges, examples of different methodologies for integrating empirical and normative research, and reflection on the challenges of conducting and publishing such work, this book will both introduce the novice to the field and challenge the expert.

內容簡介:

Der Welthandel ist nicht allein ein Handel zwischen Staaten. Vielmehr sind es überwiegend private Akteure, die über die nationalen Grenzen hinweg Waren und Dienstleistungen kaufen und verkaufen. Durch Staaten errichtete Handelshemmnisse haben daher erhebliche Auswirkungen auf einzelne Bürger und Unternehmen. Gleichwohl bestehen nur wenige Möglichkeiten für Privatrechtssubjekte, gegen WTO-widrige Maßnahmen des eigenen Staates oder von Drittstaaten vorzugehen.

Der Verfasser untersucht, vergleicht und bewertet die Mechanismen, die im US-Amerikanischen und im EG-Recht zur Verfügung stehen, um WTO-Recht mittelbar durchzusetzen, sowie die unmittelbare Wirkung des WTO-Rechts in den U.S.A. und in der EG. Nach der Analyse und Bewertung des Status Quo macht der Autor außerdem Vorschläge, wie eine Weiterentwicklung des Rechtsschutzes aussehen könnte, die zugleich die in den U.S.A. und der EG gegen eine weitergehende Wirkung des WTO-Rechts vorhandenen Bedenken berücksichtigt.

Bei der vergleichenden Untersuchung werden die Grenzen der "rule of law" im Internationalen Handel offenkundig: Während in den U.S.A. das Primat der Politik vorherrscht und das Völkerrecht nationalen Interessen untergeordnet wird, regiert auf Gemeinschaftsebene zumindest vordergründig das Primat des Rechts. Die schleichende Mißachtung von WTO-Vorgaben durch die EG wie z. B. im sogenannten Bananenstreit fügt dem Welthandelsrecht jedoch gleichfalls großen Schaden zu. Letztlich wird in beiden Rechtsordnungen die Rechtslage durch den Reziprozitätsansatz geprägt. Einseitige Zugeständnisse wird es daher nicht geben, selbst wenn die wirtschaftstheoretische Uberzeugung vorherrscht, dass ein solcher Schritt für alle Beteiligten langfristig vorteilhaft wäre. Nur wenn ein Rechtsschutzsystem eingeführt wird, das den Souveränitätsanspruch der Staaten achtet und ein "level playingfield" schafft, könnte der Ubergang von machtorientierten zu einem normorientierten Welthandelssystem auch für Privatpersonen gelingen.

New Developments in EU and International Copyright Law draws a comprehensive picture of current, pending, and proposed copyright developments – legislation, ‘communications’, white papers and court decisions – at both European Union and the World Intellectual Property Organization levels. More than a source of income and a means of protection for creators, rightholders and the creative and entertainment industries, copyright is also a vehicle for technological advances and economic development. Throughout the European Union, industries with intensive emphasis on intellectual property rights (mainly copyright) generate more than a quarter of employment and more than a third of economic activity. Yet copyright continues to be plagued by problematic attempts to balance the interests of rightholders, the public, consumers, intermediaries, collecting societies, different national legal traditions and other forces, European and global. Although it has met certain challenges – some of those involving new technologies – copyright ‘stretching’ may have reached its limit. This book thus offers a multi-faceted approach to comprehend the ongoing developments in copyright, taking into account politics, policies, the law and what is attainable in the given circumstances.

書名:The america invents act : a guide to patent litigation and patent procedure

內容簡介:

This title comprehensively guides patent practitioners and patent litigators through the changes made by the America Invents Act (AIA) to substantive patent law, patent practice, and patent litigation. It explains each of the AIAs modifications to the patent law against the background of existing law and the relevant expressions of congressional intent. The book is divided into five logical parts. Starting with substantive patent law, Part I explains how the AIA changes the U.S. patent system from first to invent to first inventor to file, redefines the concepts of prior art and the grace period, modifies the dates for determining what counts as prior art, and makes other substantive law changes of which every patent practitioner should be aware. Part II focuses on the AIA changes to patent litigation. It covers caselaw addressing the termination of qui tam actions for false marking and explains how courts have addressed the requirements of the new cause of action for a competitive injury from a false marking violation. The book also covers the AIAs expansion of the prior use defense, elimination of the best mode defense (but not the best mode requirement), new requirements for joining multiple alleged infringers in one action, new provisions on the advice of counsel, state court jurisdiction, the venue for reviewing PTO actions, and the routes for appeal. Part III explains the four new administrative trials before the new Patent Trial and Appeal Board. It covers the statutes and new PTO rules applicable to these new proceedings, including the PTAB's general procedures and its procedures for post-grant reviews, reviews of covered business method patents, inter partes reviews, and derivation proceedings (which have replaced interferences). Parts IV and V focus on other new PTO procedures in handling patent applications and issued patents. For example, the AIA gives patent owners a valuable opportunity to allow the PTO to have a post-grant supplemental review of the patent which can preempt potential inequitable conduct and related issues in future litigation involving the issued patent. The book will be supplemented annually to cover important case rulings on these revisions and further developments.

書名:Catastrophe and redemption : the political thought of Giorgio Agamben

登錄號:1077506

ISBN:9781438448534

作者:Jessica Whyte

出版社:State University of New York Press

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Offers a striking new reading of Agamben’s political thought and its implications for political action in the present.

Challenging the prevalent account of Agamben as a pessimistic thinker, Catastrophe and Redemption proposes a reading of his political thought in which the redemptive element of his work is not a curious aside but instead is fundamental to his project. Jessica Whyte considers his critical account of contemporary politics—his argument that Western politics has been “biopolitics” since its inception, his critique of human rights, his argument that the state of exception is now the norm, and the paradigmatic significance he attributes to the concentration camp—and shows that it is in the midst of these catastrophes of the present that Agamben sees the possibility of a form of profane redemption. Whyte outlines the importance of potentiality in his attempt to formulate a new politics, examines his relation to Jewish and Christian strands of messianism, and interrogates the new forms of praxis that he situates within contemporary commodity culture, taking Agamben’s thought as a call for the creation of new political forms.

“…successfully break[s] through the crust of an interpretative machine around Agamben that has grown torpid by repetition … Whyte’s reading of Agamben is nuanced, and her attention to the dynamics of capitalism and the history of political struggle provide an important corrective to some of his philosophical tendencies, without jettisoning insights.” — Law and Critique

“…Whyte identifies key questions which will need to be asked in order to transform this world. Such questions relate to challenging inequality, challenging capitalism’s colonialism of the future, and creating new forms of solidarity. To address these issues, Whyte draws us to her conclusion that it is not enough to accede to teleological formations of capitalism. We must begin to develop ways to contest it. This slim volume can be seen as such a call to arms.” — Symposium

Jessica Whyte is Lecturer in Cultural and Social Analysis at the University of Western Sydney, Australia. She is the coeditor (with Alex Murray) of The Agamben Dictionary.

書名:The republic of the living : biopolitics and the critique of civil society

登錄號:1077514

ISBN:9780823256013

作者:Miguel Vatter

出版社:Fordham University Press

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book takes up Foucault’s hypothesis that liberal “civil society,” far from being a sphere of natural freedoms, designates the social spaces where our biological lives come under new forms of control and are invested with new forms of biopower. In order to test this hypothesis, its chapters examine the critical theory of civil society—from Hegel and Marx through Lukacs, Adorno, Benjamin, and Arendt—from the new horizon opened up by Foucault’s turn to biopolitics and its reception in recent Italian theory.

Negri, Agamben, and Esposito have argued that biopolitics not only denotes new forms of domination over life but harbors within it an affirmative relation between biological life and politics that carries an emancipatory potential. The chapters of this book take up this suggestion by locating this emancipatory potential in the
biopolitical feature of the human condition that Arendt called “natality.” The book proceeds to illustrate how natality is the basis for a republican articulation of an affirmative biopolitics. It aims to renew the critical theory of civil society by pursuing the traces of natality as a “surplus of life” that resists the oppressive government of
life found in the capitalist political economy, in the liberal system of rights, and in the bourgeois family.

By contrast, natality offers the normative foundation for a new “republic of the living.” Finally, natality permits us to establish a relation between biological life and contemplative life that reverses the long-held belief in a privileged relationship of thinking to the possibility of our death. The result is a materialist, atheological
conception of contemplative life as eternal life.

書名:Technology and touch : the biopolitics of emerging technologies

作者:Anne Cranny-Francis

出版社:Palgrave Macmillan

出版年:2013

內容簡介:

Technology and Touch addresses the development of a range of new touch technologies, both technologies that we reach out to touch (like iPhones and iPads) and technologies that touch us (such as new prosthetics, smart clothing and robots). Cranny-Francis explores how this development helps us to connect with and understand our world, and ourselves. This everyday practice, or biopolitics of touch, is exemplified in a range of art works that deploy touch and allow us to examine the nature of being and of meaning. Cranny-Francis also refers the biopolitics of touch to the study of new touch technologies, exploring their capacity to have us reflect on old fears and prejudices, as well as challenging our incorporation into technologies and networks that may be unethical or deeply compromised.

書名:The visible self : global perspectives on dress, culture, and society

內容簡介:

Everywhere around the world, people make daily decisions about what to wear or how to dress. The Visible Self, 4th Edition, presents a systematic approach to analyzing daily rituals that we all share-not simply the act of putting on clothing, but also the method of cleansing the body and adorning it. Using Western and non-Western examples, the authors take a three-pronged approach to understanding dress across cultures, uncovering its relationship to human beings as biological, aesthetic, and social beings. Readings collected from classic books and academic journals enable students to appreciate the complexity of dress from a multidisciplinary perspective that includes anthropology, sociology, economics, fine arts, and the natural sciences. This new edition covers topics including social media, social responsibility, eco-fashion, plus subcultures and trends such as cosplay, making it a relevant resource for studying dress.

New to this Edition:
- Newly organized Part III uses John Bodley's revised analysis of sociocultural systems to relate to dress and fashion across the world
- New reading by John Vollmer in Part III on the Qing Dynasty of China
- Revised and expanded art program, including 65 new photographs

書名:Displaced by disaster : recovery and resilience in a globalizing world

登錄號:1077667

ISBN:9780415856034

作者:Ann-Margaret Esnard, Alka Sapat

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Displacement has traditionally been conceptualized as a phenomenon that results from conflict or other disruptions in developing or unstable countries. Hurricane Katrina shattered this notion and highlighted the various dilemmas of population displacement in the United States. The dilemmas stem from that of inconsistent terminology and definitions; lack of efforts to quantify displacement risk potential and that factor displacement vulnerability into community plans; lack of understanding of differential needs of "displacees" especially during long-term recovery periods; and policy and institutional responses (or lack thereof) especially as it relates to post-disaster sheltering and housing.

Incorporating relevant examples, cases, and policies Esnard and Sapat look at the experience of other countries and how the international community has dealt with hundreds of thousands of individuals who have been forced to leave their homes. Displaced by Disaster addresses such issues from a planning and policy perspective informed by scholarship in disciplines such as emergency management; political science; sociology and anthropology. It is ideal for students and practitioners working in the areas of disaster management, planning, public administration and policy, housing, and the many disciplines connected to disaster issues.

書名:Remembering the Cold War : global contests and national stories

登錄號:1077668

ISBN:9780415661539

作者:David Lowe, Tony Joel

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Remembering the Cold War examines how, more than two decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Cold War legacies continue to play crucial roles in defining national identities and shaping international relations around the globe. Given the Cold War’s blurred definition – it has neither a widely accepted commencement date nor unanimous conclusion - what is to be remembered? This book illustrates that there is, in fact, a huge body of ‘remembrance,’ and that it is more pertinent to ask: what should be included and what can be overlooked?

Over five sections, this richly illustrated volume considers case studies of Cold War remembering from different parts of the world, and engages with growing theorisation in the field of memory studies, specifically in relation to war. David Lowe and Tony Joel afford careful consideration to agencies that identify with being ‘victims’ of the Cold War. In addition, the concept of arenas of articulation, which envelops the myriad spaces in which the remembering, commemorating, memorialising, and even revising of Cold War history takes place, is given prominence.

書名:Documentary, world history, and national power in the PRC : global rise in Chinese eyes

登錄號:1077671

ISBN:9780415811699

作者:Gotelind Müller

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Documentaries have recently become a favourite format for Chinese state-directed media to present an officially sanctioned view of history. Indeed, this is not confined to Chinese national history. In stark contrast to the earlier self-centred preoccupation with Chinese history, there has been an upsurge in interest in foreign history, with a view to illuminating China’s role not only in world history, but also on the global stage today, and in the future.

This book examines three recent Chinese documentary television series which present the officially sanctioned view of the rise of the modern West, the reasons for the end of the Soviet Union, and the legitimisation of the present-day Chinese government via a specific reading of modern Chinese history to argue for a ‘Chinese rise’ in the future. With a focus on these documentaries, Gotelind Müller discusses how history is presented on screen, and explores the function of visual history for memory culture and wider society. Further, this book reveals how the presentation of Chinese and foreign history in a global framework impacts on the officially transmitted views on Self and Other, and thus provides a keen insight into how the Chinese themselves regard their ‘global rise’.

Documentary, World History, and National Power in the PRC will be welcomed by students and scholars working across a number of fields, including Chinese studies, East Asian studies, media studies, television studies, history and memory studies.

書名:Contemporary travel writing of Latin America

登錄號:1077678

ISBN:9781138817579

作者:Claire Lindsay

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2010

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book considers how contemporary travelers from Latin America write their journeys at and about home. How do Latin American writers of the late twentieth-century negotiate the hybrid and volatile category of travel writing, which has been shaped in large part by myriad Euro-American travelers? How do they engage with the enduring myths about the region perpetuated by their imperial/ist predecessors? And, if not journeys of expansion or exploration, on precisely what kinds of ‘travel’ do their own journeys rest? Drawing on ideas from many disciplines, including anthropology, philosophy, sociology, literary and cultural studies, this book considers contemporary journey narratives from Latin America through a series of case studies concerning four key sites of travel, each of which engenders particular forms of travel and travel narrative: Patagonia, the Andes, Mexico and the Mexico-US border. This book thus explores the complex practice and representation of journeys in the region by writers including Luis Sepúlveda, Mempo Giardinelli, Andrés Ruggeri, Ana García Bergua, Silvia Molina, María Luisa Puga, Rubén Martínez and Luis Alberto Urrea. In doing so, it explores questions relating to mobility, representation, and globalization that are of widespread concern across the world today.

書名:Performing Asian transnationalisms : theatre, identity and the geographies of performance

登錄號:1077714

ISBN:9780415854382

作者:Amanda Rogers

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book makes a significant contribution to interdisciplinary engagements between Theatre Studies and Cultural Geography in its analysis of how theatre articulates transnational geographies of Asian culture and identity. Deploying a geographical approach to transnational culture, Rogers analyses the cross-border relationships that exist within and between Asian American, British East Asian, and South East Asian theatres, investigating the effect of transnationalism on the construction of identity, the development of creative praxis, and the reception of works in different social fields. This book therefore examines how practitioners engage with one another across borders, and details the cross-cultural performances, creative opportunities, and political alliances that result. By viewing ethnic minority theatres as part of global — rather than simply national — cultural fields, Rogers argues that transnational relationships take multiple forms and have varying impetuses that cannot always be equated to diasporic longing for a homeland or as strategically motivated for economic gain. This argument is developed through a series of chapters that examine how different transnational spatialities are produced and re-worked through the practice of theatre making, drawing upon an analysis of rehearsals, performances, festivals, and semi-structured interviews with practitioners. The book extends existing discussions of performance and globalization, particularly through its focus on the multiplicity of transnational spatiality and the networks between English-language Asian theatres. Its analysis of spatially extensive relations also contributes to an emerging body of research on creative geographies by situating theatrical praxis in relation to cross-border flows. Performing Asian Transnationalisms demonstrates how performances reflect and rework conventional transnational geographies in imaginative and innovative ways.

書名:Cities of Others : reimagining urban spaces in Asian American literature

作者:Xiaojing Zhou

出版社:University of Washington Press

出版年:2015

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Asian American literature abounds with complex depictions of American cities as spaces that reinforce racial segregation and prevent interactions across boundaries of race, culture, class, and gender. However, in Cities of Others, Xiaojing Zhou uncovers a much different narrative, providing the most comprehensive examination to date of how Asian American writers - both celebrated and overlooked - depict urban settings. Zhou goes beyond examining popular portrayals of Chinatowns by paying equal attention to life in other parts of the city. Her innovative and wide-ranging approach sheds new light on the works of Chinese, Filipino, Indian, Japanese, Korean, and Vietnamese American writers who bear witness to a variety of urban experiences and reimagine the American city as other than a segregated nation-space.

Drawing on critical theories on space from urban geography, ecocriticism, and postcolonial studies, Zhou shows how spatial organization shapes identity in the works of Sui Sin Far, Bienvenido Santos, Meena Alexander, Frank Chin, Chang-rae Lee, Karen Tei Yamashita, and others. She also shows how the everyday practices of Asian American communities challenge racial segregation, reshape urban spaces, and redefine the identity of the American city. From a reimagining of the nineteenth-century flaneur figure in an Asian American context to providing a framework that allows readers to see ethnic enclaves and American cities as mutually constitutive and transformative, Zhou gives us a provocative new way to understand some of the most important works of Asian American literature.

書名:Biopolitics : a reader

作者:Timothy Campbell, Adam Sitze

出版社:Duke University Press

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This anthology collects the texts that defined the concept of biopolitics, which has become so significant throughout the humanities and social sciences today. The far-reaching influence of the biopolitical—the relation of politics to life, or the state to the body—is not surprising given its centrality to matters such as healthcare, abortion, immigration, and the global distribution of essential medicines and medical technologies.

Michel Foucault gave new and unprecedented meaning to the term "biopolitics" in his 1976 essay "Right of Death and Power over Life." In this anthology, that touchstone piece is followed by essays in which biopolitics is implicitly anticipated as a problem by Hannah Arendt and later altered, critiqued, deconstructed, and refined by major political and social theorists who explicitly engaged with Foucault's ideas. By focusing on the concept of biopolitics, rather than applying it to specific events and phenomena, this Reader provides an enduring framework for assessing the central problematics of modern political thought.

Contributors. Giorgio Agamben, Hannah Arendt, Alain Badiou, Timothy Campbell, Gilles Deleuze, Roberto Esposito, Michel Foucault, Donna Haraway, Michael Hardt, Achille Mbembe, Warren Montag, Antonio Negri, Jacques Rancière, Adam Sitze, Peter Sloterdijk, Paolo Virno, Slavoj Žižek

書名:Canadian literature and cultural memory

ISBN:9780199007592

作者:Cynthia Sugars, Eleanor Ty

出版社:Oxford University Press

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Critics argue that contemporary western societies are immersed in a "culture of memory," devoting resources to national histories and heritage, commemoration, public re-enactments, etc. We use these recollections of our national past to maintain a collective identity in the present, among other uses. These essays, edited by Cynthia Sugars and Eleanor Ty, explore how Canadian literature draws on aspects of cultural memory, past and future.

Exploring memory as a "vector of signification" involves a wide range such concepts of as heritage, antiquity, nostalgia, elegy, ancestry, haunting, trauma, affect, aging, authenticity, commemoration, public history. Contributors to this collection consider literary treatments of both mainstream and alternative uses of cultural memory, past and contemporary, urban and rural. From well-known writers like Alice Munro, Al Purdy and Dionne Brand to recreations of Aboriginal pasts and less common topics like food and Mennonites, there is wide representation of Canada's literary diversity. And equally representative is the collection's historical spread, ranging across early explorer narratives to contemporary works. The collection digs into some of the darker moments in our past (immigrant experiences, recollections of interned Japanese-Canadians in World War 2, and memories of Native children in residential schools). The sheer ambition of this collection suggests the multifaceted ways that Canada's past is part of our collective cultural memory now. A four-page colour insert - including Seth cartoons as well as unique, little known photography - provides a compelling visual context for the collection's treatment of the complex, multifaceted character of cultural memory in Canada.

The collection is divided into five parts (amnesia, postmemory, recovery work, trauma, and globalization), all areas of research in the emerging field of cultural memory. These thought-provoking essays reflect the many ways the past infuses the present, and the present adapts the past. Students and scholars will find this rich collection useful in upper-level courses in Canadian literature as well as in cultural studies.

書名:Taiwanese identity in the twenty-first century : domestic, regional, and global perspectives

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

As we look to enter the second decade of the 21st century, Taiwan’s quest for identity remains the most contentious issue in the domestic arena of Taiwanese politics. From here, it spills over into the cross-Strait relationship and impacts on regional and global security. Whether Taiwan is a nation state or whether Taiwan has any claim to be a nation-state and how Taiwan should relate to "China" are issues which have long been hotly debated on the island, although it seems that much of this debate is now more focused on finding an adequate strategy to deal with the Beijing government than on the legitimacy of Taiwan’s claim to sovereignty as the Republic of China.

The collection of chapters in this book shed light on very different aspects of Taiwan’s current state of identity formation from historical, political, social and economic perspectives, both domestically, and globally. As such it will be invaluable reading for students and scholars of Taiwan studies, politics, history and society, as well as those interested in cross-Strait relations, Chinese politics, and Chinese international relations.

The idea that bodies and bodily characteristics are heavily freighted with values that are often linked to political and social spheres remains underdeveloped in the histories of America's relations with the rest of the world. Attentive to diverse state and nonstate actors, the contributors provide historically grounded insights into the transnational dimensions of biopolitics. Their subjects range from the regulation of prostitution in the Philippines by the U.S. Army to Cold War ideals of American feminine beauty, and from "body counts" as metrics of military success to cultural representations of Mexican migrants in the United States as public health threats. By considering bodies as complex, fluctuating, and interrelated sites of meaning, the contributors to this collection offer new insights into the workings of both soft and hard power.

書名:Food waste : home consumption, material culture and everyday life

內容簡介:

In recent years, food waste has risen to the top of the political and public agenda, yet until now there has been no scholarly analysis applied to the topic as a complement and counter-balance to campaigning and activist approaches.

Using ethnographic material to explore global issues, Food Waste unearths the processes that lie behind the volume of food currently wasted by households and consumers. The author demonstrates how waste arises as a consequence of households negotiating the complex and contradictory demands of everyday life, explores the reasons why surplus food ends up in the bin, and considers innovative solutions to the problem.

Drawing inspiration from studies of consumption and material culture alongside social science perspectives on everyday life and the home, this lively yet scholarly book is ideal for students and researchers from a wide range of disciplines, along with anyone interested in understanding the food that we waste.

書名:Sinophone Malaysian literature : not made in China

內容簡介:

China’s recent economic growth has fed a rapid increase in the study of modern Chinese language and literature globally. In this shifting global context, authors who work on the edges of the literary empire raise important questions about the homogeneity of language, identity, and culture that is produced by the modern Chinese literary canon. Sinophone Malaysian Literature: Not Made in China examines a key segment of this literature and asks, “What does it mean to be of Chinese descent and Chinese-speaking outside of China?”

This book looks specifically at how diasporic Chinese subjects make sense of their Chinese and Malaysian identities in postcolonial Malaysia. By analyzing the literary texts of several of the most influential contemporary Malaysia-born, Chinese-language authors, the author shows how the texts’ complex explorations of sentimental attachments, cultural contexts, and sources of power form the basis for a contested, fractured, unstable, and yet enduring Chinese Malaysian identity. This book traces the development of this identity from negotiations with diverse cultural sources and often conflicting affiliations with the appointed centers of cultural productions in Beijing, Shanghai, Taipei, and Kuala Lumpur.

The special value of the Sinophone Malaysian literary texts that form the focus of the book is that they place political and cultural affiliations of the Chinese-origin, Chinese-speaking Malaysians under a microscope, revealing intricacies and transformations that would otherwise remain invisible.

While there have been several excellent works that deal with individual Chinese authors from Malaysia, there is to date no broadly framed and comprehensive study of the body of Chinese diasporic literature emerging from this multiethnic, polylinguistic country. This neglect is surprising given the vibrant development of Chinese Malaysian literature.

Examining this literature as a historicized body leads to the better understanding of the common, and sometimes communal, aesthetic strategies in inventing a modern Chinese identity in a context where it is incessantly challenged and hybridized. This book brings together analyses of the works of key Sinophone Malaysia-born authors and places their writings in the important context of Malaysian history and politics.

This book will be of value to scholars and students of Chinese-language literature and culture. It will also appeal to scholars and students in the fields of Chinese and Southeast Asia studies as well as those interested in postcolonial, diaspora, migration, Asian American studies, and world literature.

書名:A new republic of letters : memory and scholarship in the age of digital reproduction

作者:Jerome McGann

出版社:Harvard University Press

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

A manifesto for the humanities in the digital age, A New Republic of Letters argues that the history of texts, together with the methods by which they are preserved and made available for interpretation, are the overriding subjects of humanist study in the twenty-first century. Theory and philosophy, which have grounded the humanities for decades, no longer suffice as an intellectual framework. Jerome McGann proposes we look instead to philology—a discipline which has been out of fashion for many decades but which models the concerns of digital humanities with surprising fidelity.

For centuries, books have been the best way to preserve and transmit knowledge. But as libraries and museums digitize their archives and readers abandon paperbacks for tablet computers, digital media are replacing books as the repository of cultural memory. While both the mission of the humanities and its traditional modes of scholarship and critical study are the same, the digital environment is driving disciplines to work with new tools that require major, and often very difficult, institutional changes. Now more than ever, scholars need to recover the theory and method of philological investigation if the humanities are to meet their perennial commitments. Textual and editorial scholarship, often marginalized as a narrowly technical domain, should be made a priority of humanists’ attention.

書名:The postcolonial subject : claiming politics/governing others in late modernity

出版年:2012

內容簡介:

This book places the lens on postcolonial agency and resistance in a social and geopolitical context that has witnessed great transformations in international politics. What does postcolonial politics mean in a late modern context of interventions that seek to govern postcolonial populations? Drawing on historic and contemporary articulations of agency and resistance and highlighting voices from the postcolonial world, the book explores the transition from colonial modernity to the late modern postcolonial era. It shows that at each moment wherein the claim to politics is made, the postcolonial subject comes face to face with global operations of power that seek to control and govern. As seen in the Middle East and elsewhere, these operations have variously drawn on war, policing, as well as pedagogical practices geared at governing the political aspirations of target societies. The book provides a conceptualisation of postcolonial political subjectivity, discusses moments of its emergence, and exposes the security agendas that seek to govern it.

Engaging with political thought, from Hannah Arendt, to Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault, and Edward Said, among other critical and postcolonial theorists, and drawing on art, literature, and film from the postcolonial world, this work will be of great interest to students and scholars of critical international relations, postcolonial theory, and political theory.

內容簡介:

This collection of essays foregrounds the work of filmmakers in theorizing and comparing postcolonial conditions, recasting debates in both cinema and postcolonial studies. Postcolonial cinema is presented, not as a rigid category, but as an optic through which to address questions of postcolonial historiography, geography, subjectivity, and epistemology.

Current circumstances of migration and immigration, militarization, economic exploitation, racial and religious conflict, enactments of citizenship, and cultural self-representation have deep roots in colonial/postcolonial/neocolonial histories. Contributors deeply engage the tense asymmetries bequeathed to the contemporary world by the multiple,diverse, and overlapping histories of European, Soviet, U.S., and multi-national imperial ventures. With interdisciplinary expertise, they discover and explore the conceptual temporalities and spatialities of postcoloniality, with an emphasis on the politics of form, the ‘postcolonial aesthetics’ through which filmmakers challenge themselves and their viewers to move beyond national and imperial imaginaries.

Contributors include: Jude G. Akudinobi, Kanika Batra, Ruth Ben-Ghiat, Shohini Chaudhuri, Julie F. Codell, Sabine Doran, Hamish Ford, Claudia Hoffmann, Anikó Imre, Priya Jaikumar, Mariam B. Lam, Paulo de Medeiros, Sandra Ponzanesi, Richard Rice, Mireille Rosello and Marguerite Waller.

內容簡介:

This volume explores the relationship between literature and translation from three perspectives: the creative dimensions of the translation process; the way texts circulate between languages; and the way texts are received in translation by new audiences. The distinctiveness of the volume lies in the fact that it considers these fundamental aspects of literary translation together and in terms of their interconnections. Contributors examine a wide variety of texts, including world classics, poetry, genre fiction, transnational literature, and life writing from around the world. Both theoretical and empirical issues are covered, with some contributors approaching the topic as practitioners of literary translation, and others writing from within the academy.

作者:Steven E. Jones

內容簡介:

The past decade has seen a profound shift in our collective understanding of the digital network. What was once understood to be a transcendent virtual reality is now experienced as a ubiquitous grid of data that we move through and interact with every day, raising new questions about the social, locative, embodied, and object-oriented nature of our experience in the networked world.

In The Emergence of the Digital Humanities, Steven E. Jones examines this shift in our relationship to digital technology and the ways that it has affected humanities scholarship and the academy more broadly. Based on the premise that the network is now everywhere rather than merely "out there," Jones links together seemingly disparate cultural events—the essential features of popular social media, the rise of motion-control gaming and mobile platforms, the controversy over the "gamification" of everyday life, the spatial turn, fabrication and 3D printing, and electronic publishing—and argues that cultural responses to changes in technology provide an essential context for understanding the emergence of the digital humanities as a new field of study in this millennium.

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Emphasizing the role of travel and migration in the performance and transformation of identity, this volume addresses representations of travel, mobility, and migration in 19th–21st-century travel writing, literature, and media texts. In so doing, the book analyses the role of the various cultural, ethnic, gender, and national encounters pertinent to narratives of travel and migration in transforming and problematizing the identities of both the travelers and "travelees" enacting in the borderzones between cultures. While the individual essays by scholars from a wide range of countries deal with a variety of case studies from various historical, spatial, and cultural locations, they share a strong central interest in the ways in which the narratives of travel contribute to the imagining of ethnic encounters and how they have acted as sites of transformation and transculturation from the early nineteenth century to the present day. In addition to discussing textual representations of travel and migration, the volume also addresses the ways in which cultural texts themselves travel and are reconstructed in various cultural settings. The analyses are particularly attentive to the issues of globalization and migration, which provide a general frame for interpretation. What distinguishes the volume from existing books is its concern with travel and migration as ways of forging transcultural identities that are able to subvert existing categorizations and binary models of identity formation. In so doing, it pays particular attention to the performance of identity in various spaces of cultural encounter, ranging from North America to the East of Europe, putting particular emphasis on the representation of intercultural and ethnic encounters.

書名:Before and after 9/11 : a philosophical examination of globalization, terror, and history

作者:Tom Rockmore

出版社:Continuum

出版年:2011

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

“"In Before and After 9/11 Rockmore offers a much awaited philosophical perspective on the epoch-making events of 9/11. The book is proof of the far-reaching power of analysis and critique that a historically informed philosophy can have on our current reality. Indeed, with this work Rockmore masterfully fulfills the Hegelian claim that philosophy is the rational comprehension of our historical world. Rockmore frames the events of 911 going to the religious roots of G.W. Bush's view of terrorism and discussing Lewis's and Huntington's appraisals of the clash of civilizations, but he also invites us to reflect on the implications of the war on terror in our globalized world." - Angelica Nuzzo, CUNY Brooklyn.” –

“In this highly readable and factually very well documented book, a distinguished philosopher takes a broad view of the major events that have shaped our contemporary political world, putting them in a socioeconomic and historical context that makes much more sense of them than other recent authors with comparable intentions (e.g., S.P. Huntington and B. Lewis, whom he cogently criticizes) have done. It is sure to help stimulate debate, so badly needed today, about just where "we," the global entity of which we are all a part, are headed.- William L. McBride, Arthur G. Hansen Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Purdue University” –

“It continues to be surprising that American philosophers have said little or nothing of consequence regarding 9/11 during the decade following this horrendous event. Tom Rockmore redresses this deficit with a new book entitled, Before and After 9/11, arguing that prevailing conceptual models of analysis, whether political, cultural, or religious, are inadequate apart from a more sophisticated philosophical hermeneutic whereby we can better comprehend the antecedents leading to this historic event and their consequences for America and the world. In order to do so, Rockmore develops what he calls "a model of historical knowledge in which human beings are the actors of human history...[and] because human activity is teleological, directed to realizing goals, history is the record of that activity, hence rational, even in its darkest moments." Rockmore's analysis and interpretation is informed by what he calls "epistemological constructivism," a model heavily influenced by what he takes from Aristotle, Hegel, Marx, and Weber in order to more accurately understand not only the events leading to 9/11, but the economic context of these events, and especially the consequences of the vague and ambiguous American response to 9/11 known as the so-called "global war on terror". Rockmore argues that "economic globalism and Islamic terror are dialectical opposites" - an opposition bringing about "a new social construction" the implications of which are only faintly understood by its principal agents. Professor Rockmore is uniquely qualified to proffer his analyses as to the world historical significance of 9/11 not only because of his extensive and impressive writings on Kant, Fichte, Hegel and Marx, but also because of his current joint appointment with Duquesne University and the University of Peking. Thus Before and After 9/11 is a first-hand philosophical witness of the transformation that has and is taking place during the past decade, and Rockmore's assessment is not to be missed. - Alan M. Olson, Professor, Philosophy of Religion, Boston University.” –

“"Finally we have a full account of America's evolving role in the Middle East that refuses to cast the conflict between Islam and America in simplistic terms. Rockmore explodes the myth that this conflict is all about religion and culture while at the same time showing that religion and culture form the backdrop for understanding how the protagonists in this drama justify their respective actions. Most importantly, this exceptionally well-written and well researched book underscores the primary contradiction between global capitalism, whose propagation has become America's chief national security interest - more traditional Muslim economies. In sum, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the religious, cultural, political, and economic causes underlying America's on-going military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan." - David Ingram, Department of Philosophy, Loyola University. ” –

“What differentiates his book from that of so many earlier discussions is that he approaches the subject from that standpoint of the philosophy of history rather than political theory. Furthermore, Rockmore's book is relatively short and avoids technical jargon in the discussion of philosophical issues, which also makes it appropriate for the educated lay public.” – Kevin E Dodson, Marx & Philosophy Review of Books

書名:Cinema and language loss : displacement, visuality and the filmic image

登錄號:1077953

ISBN:9780415807180

作者:Tijana Mamula

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Cinema and Language Loss provides the first sustained exploration of the relationship between linguistic displacement and visuality in the filmic realm, examining in depth both its formal expressions and theoretical implications.

Combining insights from psychoanalysis, philosophy and film theory, the author argues that the move from one linguistic environment to another profoundly destabilizes the subject’s relation to both language and reality, resulting in the search for a substitute for language in vision itself – a reversal, as it were, of speaking into seeing. The dynamics of this shift are particularly evident in the works of many displaced filmmakers, which often manifest a conflicted interaction between language and vision, and through this question the signifying potential, and the perceptual ambiguities, of cinema itself.

In tracing the encounter between cinema and language loss across a wide range of films – from Billy Wilder’s Sunset Boulevard to Chantal Akerman’s News from Home to Michael Haneke’s Caché – Mamula reevaluates the role of displacement in postwar Western film and makes an original contribution to film theory and philosophy based on a reconsideration of the place of language in our experience and understanding of cinema.

內容簡介:

This book offers an incisive and ambitious critique of Asian Diaspora culture, looking specifically at literature and visual popular culture. Sheng-mei Ma’s engaging text discusses issues of self and its relationship with Asian Diaspora culture in the global twenty-first century.

Using examples from Asia, Asian America, and Asian Diaspora from the West, the book weaves a narrative that challenges the twenty-first century triumphal discourse of Asia and argues that given the long shadow cast across modern film and literature, this upward mobility is inescapably escapist, a flight from itself; Asia’s stunning self-transformation is haunted by self-alienation. The chapters discuss a wealth of topics, including Asianness, Orientalism, and Asian American identity, drawing on a variety of pop culture sources from The Matrix Trilogy to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. This book forms an analysis of the new idea of Asian Diaspora that cuts across area, ethnicity, and nation, incorporating itself into the contemporary global culture whilst retaining a distinct Asian flavor.

Covering the mediums of literature, film, and visual cultures, this book will be of immense interest to scholars and students of Asian studies and literature, ethnic studies, cultural studies, and film.

書名:Formative fictions : nationalism, cosmopolitanism, and the Bildungsroman

登錄號:1077970

ISBN:9780801478031

作者:Tobias Boes

出版社:Cornell University Press

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

The Bildungsroman, or "novel of formation," has long led a paradoxical life within literary studies, having been construed both as a peculiarly German genre, a marker of that country's cultural difference from Western Europe, and as a universal expression of modernity. In Formative Fictions, Tobias Boes argues that the dual status of the Bildungsroman renders this novelistic form an elegant way to negotiate the diverging critical discourses surrounding national and world literature.


Since the late eighteenth century, authors have employed the story of a protagonist's journey into maturity as a powerful tool with which to facilitate the creation of national communities among their readers. Such attempts always stumble over what Boes calls "cosmopolitan remainders," identity claims that resist nationalism's aim for closure in the normative regime of the nation-state. These cosmopolitan remainders are responsible for the curiously hesitant endings of so many novels of formation.


In Formative Fictions, Boes presents readings of a number of novels—Goethe’s Wilhelm Meister’s Apprenticeship, Karl Leberecht Immermann’s The Epigones, Gustav Freytag’s Debit and Credit, Alfred Döblin’s Berlin Alexanderplatz, and Thomas Mann’s Doctor Faustus among them—that have always been felt to be particularly "German" and compares them with novels by such authors as George Eliot and James Joyce to show that what seem to be markers of national particularity can productively be read as topics of world literature.

內容簡介:

Asian American literature is one of the most recent forms of ethnic literature and is already becoming one of the most prominent, given the large number of writers, the growing ethnic population from the region, the general receptivity of this body of work, and the quality of the authors. In recent decades, there has been an exponential growth in their output and much Asian American literature has now achieved new levels of popular success and critical acclaim. Nurtured by rich and long literary traditions from the vast continent of Asia, this literature is poised between the ancient and the modern, between the East and West, and between the oral and the written.

The Historical Dictionary of Asian American Literature and Theater covers the activities in this burgeoning field. First, its history is traced year by year from 1887 to the present, in a chronology, and the introduction provides a good overview. The most important section is the dictionary, with over 600 substantial and cross-referenced entries on authors, books, and genres as well as more general ones describing the historical background, cultural features, techniques and major theatres and clubs. More reading can be found through an extensive bibliography with general works and those on specific authors. The book is thus a good place to get started, or to expanded one’s horizons, about a branch of American literature that can only grow in importance.

書名:Magic, science, and empire in postcolonial literature : the alchemical literary imagination

作者:Kathleen J. Renk

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book examines the ways in which contemporary British and British postcolonial writers in the after-empire era draw connections between magic (defined here as Renaissance Hermetic philosophy) and science. Writers such as Tom Stoppard, Zadie Smith, and Margaret Atwood critique both imperial science, or science used in service to empire, and what Renk calls "imperical science," a distortion of rational science which denies that reality is holistic and claims that nature can and should be conquered. In warning of the dangers of imperical science, these writers restore the connection between magic and science as they examine major shifts in scientific thinking across the centuries. They reflect on the Copernican Revolution and the historic split between magic and science, scrutinize Darwinism, consider the relationship between Victorian science and pseudo-science, analyze twentieth-century Uncertainty theories, reject bio/genetic engineering, call for a new approach to science that reconnects science and art, and ultimately endeavor to bring an end to the imperial age. Overall, these writers forge a new discourse that merges science with the arts and emphasizes a holistic philosophy, a view shared by both Hermetic philosophy and recent scientific theories, such as chaos or complexity theory. Along with recent books that focus on the relationship between contemporary literature and science, this work focuses on contemporary British literature’s critique of science and the ways in which postcolonial literature addresses the relationship between magic, science, and empire.

內容簡介:

Mobility at Large explores a unique trajectory of travel writing. Instead of focussing on best-selling travel texts by Paul Theroux, Bill Bryson, Michael Palin, Alain de Botton and others, this book examines a strand of innovative contemporary travel writing wherein the authors experiment with form, content and the politics of representation. In this, innovative travel texts by a range of writers – from Michael Ondaatje and Caryl Phillips to Daphne Marlatt and Sam Miller – transform the genre by inscribing travel, migration, mobility and displacement within a variety of experimental textual strategies to work through questions of movement and the politics of personal identity in relation to the complex interlocutions of space, place and subjectivity. As a result, Mobility at Large challenges those critics who dismiss the genre as inherently conservative and inextricably bound up in a colonial, Eurocentric tradition. The book also documents a long and rich tradition of travel writing that existed well beyond the influence of Europe.

Over the past two decades interest in travel has developed significantly. Critical engagement with imperialism, postcolonialism, diasporas, ethnography and cultural anthropology has led to increasingly sophisticated readings of the travel writing genre and a growing acknowledgement of its complex history. Postcolonial Eyes is the first study of its kind to identify a specifically Sub-Saharan African lineage within the broader tradition of travel writing. As well as exploring the reasons for Africans’ exclusion from the genre, the book examines the important relationship between ethnicity and travel and identifies the concerns and preoccupations that define African writers’ approaches to travel.

It addresses this need by bringing together historical and contemporary accounts and critical examinations of the displaced, by articulating the commonalities in their lived experiences. It accomplishes the task of charting a new path in displacement studies by offering a number of studies from interdisciplinary and diverse methodological approaches comprising ethnographic and qualitative research and literary interpretations to emphasise that although the forms and conditions of mobility are highly divergent, individual experiences of displacement and placelessness offer a critical challenge to the artificial categorisations of people's movements.

Each chapter adds insights into the different configurations of displacement and placement, and offers fresh interpretations of migration and dislocation in today's rapidly changing world. The contributors critically examine a variety of displacement processes and experiences in the context of war, tourism, neoliberal policies of development, and the impact of various agro-forestry policies. They focus on a range of countries, enabling a thorough comparative analysis in terms of scope and range of examples and methods of analysis. This book makes an original contribution to the growing body of literature on displacement, and will appeal to a wide readership including advanced undergraduates, and graduate students and professors in disciplines such as human geography, development studies, sociology and anthropology, regional studies and comparative impact assessment.

書名:The cosmic time of empire : modern Britain and world literature

作者:Adam Barrows

出版社:University of California Press

出版年:2011

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Combining original historical research with literary analysis, Adam Barrows takes a provocative look at the creation of world standard time in 1884 and rethinks the significance of this remarkable moment in modernism for both the processes of imperialism and for modern literature. As representatives from twenty-four nations argued over adopting the Prime Meridian, and thereby measuring time in relation to Greenwich, England, writers began experimenting with new ways of representing human temporality. Barrows finds this experimentation in works as varied as Victorian adventure novels, high modernist texts, and South Asian novels—including the work of James Joyce, Virginia Woolf, H. Rider Haggard, Bram Stoker, Rudyard Kipling, and Joseph Conrad. Demonstrating the investment of modernist writing in the problems of geopolitics and in the public discourse of time, Barrows argues that it is possible, and productive, to rethink the politics of modernism through the politics of time.

書名:Theatre and performance in the Asia-Pacific : regional modernities in the global era

內容簡介:

Theatre and Performance in the Asia-Pacific is an analysis of the theatrical imaginative as it manifests in theatre and performance in Australia, Indonesia, Japan and Singapore. The sites encompass marked differences in language, performance, history and politics, and variations in the solidity and volatility of their imagined worlds. Recognizing these differences, the book explores contrasts in each nation as it identifies with the region and the cultural interconnections that support a regional identity. While the four nations demonstrate degrees of ambivalence and connection to the Asia-Pacific as a region, the project argues that relations to modernity and globalization are less nation-specific. The project articulates a regional configuration of modernity which is multiple, contradictory but nonetheless regional. Each nation has in common the imperative to reconcile with and adapt to European modernity in a way that renders global modernity multiple rather than singular.

書名:Travel and dislocation in contemporary American fiction

作者:Aliki Varvogli

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2011

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book offers a critical study and analysis of American fiction at the beginning of the twenty-first century. It focuses on novels that ‘go outward’ literally and metaphorically, and it concentrates on narratives that take place mainly away from the US’s geographical borders.

Varvogli draws on current theories of travel globalization and post-national studies, and proposes a dynamic model that will enable scholars to approach contemporary American fiction and assess recent changes and continuities. Concentrating on work by Philip Caputo, Dave Eggers, Norman Rush and Russell Banks, the book proposes that American literature’s engagement with Africa has shifted and needs to be approached using new methodologies. Novels by Amy Tan, Garrison Keillor, Jonathan Safran Foer and Dave Eggers are examined in the context of travel and globalization, and works by Chang-rae Lee, Ethan Canin, Dinaw Mengestu and Jhumpa Lahiri are used as examples of the changing face of the American immigrant novel, and the changing meaning of national belonging.

內容簡介:

Has material civilization spun out of control, becoming too fast for our own well-being and that of the planet? This book confronts these anxieties and examines the changing rhythms and temporal organization of everyday life. How do people handle hurriedness, burn-out and stress? Are slower forms of consumption viable? In case studies covering the United States, Asia and Europe, international experts follow routines and rhythms, their emotional and political dynamics and show how they are anchored in material culture and everyday practice. Running themes of the book are questions of coordination and disruption; cycles and seasons; and the interplay between power and freedom, and between material and natural forces. The result is a volume that brings studies of practice, temporality and material culture together to open up a new intellectual agenda.

內容簡介:

This book examines the explicit effects of global connectivity on local culture and society in post-reform mainland China. It focuses on individual level globalization in China and how global socialization impacts local residents’ behaviors, lifestyle, value orientation and the consequence of local transformation. Asking questions such as:

  • What types of individual global connections have emerged and developed in China over the last three decades?
  • What aspects of local transformations are influenced by such global connections?
  • How does the impact of global connections vary across different aspects of local communities and institutions?

Jiaming Sun uses an original micro-level relational approach to analyse how different types of individual global connections may make a difference and constitute certain outcomes of local transformation, the outcome being that global connections are capable of facilitating local transformation across different spatial, economic, and cultural settings.

書名:Literature and the Glocal City : Reshaping the English Canadian Imaginary

作者:edited by Ana María Fraile-Marcos

出版社: Routledge

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

The modern city is a space that can simultaneously represent the principles of its homeland alongside its own unique blend of the cultures that intermingle within its city limits.

This book makes an intervention in Canadian literary criticism by foregrounding both ‘globalism,’ which is increasingly perceived as the state-of-the-art literary paradigm, and the city. These are two significant axes of contemporary culture and identity that were previously disregarded by a critical tradition built around the importance of space and place in Canadian writing. Yet, as relevant as the turn to the city and to globalism may be, this collection’s most notable contribution lies in linking the notion of ‘glocality’, that is, the intermeshing of local and global forces to representations of subjectivity in the material and figurative space of the Canadian city. Dealing with oppositional discourses as multiculturalism, postcolonialism, feminism, diaspora, and environmentalism this book is an essential reference for any scholar with an interest in these areas.

內容簡介:

In Modernity and Terrorism: From Anti-Modernity to Modern Global Terror Milan Zafirovski and Daniel G. Rodeheaver analyze the nature, types, and causes of contemporary global terrorism. The book redefines modern terrorism in a novel more comprehensive manner compared to the previous literature. It examines counter-state and state terrorism, with an emphasis on the latter in light of its scale, persistence, and intensity as well as its relative neglect in the literature. The book identifies and predicts the general cause of most modern terrorism in anti-modernity as the adverse reaction to and reversal of liberal-democratic, secular, rationalistic, and globalized, modernity. In essence, it discovers and predicts anti-liberalism in the form of conservatism as the main source and force of modern terrorism.

書名:Toward a literary ecology : places and spaces in American literature

出版社:Scarecrow Press

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Scholarship of literature and the environment demonstrates myriad understandings of nature and culture. While some work in the field results in approaches that belong in the realm of cultural studies, other scholars have expanded the boundaries of ecocriticism to connect the practice more explicitly to disciplines such as the biological sciences, human geography, or philosophy. Even so, the field of ecocriticism has yet to clearly articulate its interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary nature.

In Toward a Literary Ecology: Places and Spaces in American Literature, editors Karen E. Waldron and Robert Friedman have assembled a collection of essays that study the interconnections between literature and the environment to theorize literary ecology. The disciplinary perspectives in these essays allow readers to comprehend places and environments and to represent, express, or strive for that comprehension through literature. Contributors to this volume explore the works of several authors, including Gary Snyder, Karen Tei Yamashita, Rachel Carson, Terry Tempest Williams, Chip Ward, and Mary Oliver. Other essays discuss such topics as urban fiction as a model of literary ecology, the geographies of belonging in the work of Native American poets, and the literary ecology of place in “new” nature writing.

Investigating texts for the complex interconnections they represent, Toward a Literary Ecology suggests what such texts might teach us about the interconnections of our own world.
This volume also offers a means of analyzing representations of people in places within the realm of an historical, cultural, and geographically bounded yet diverse American literature. Intended for students of literature and ecology, this collection will also appeal to scholars of geography, cultural studies, philosophy, biology, history, anthropology, and other related disciplines.

書名:Archives of the Black Atlantic : Reading Between Literature and History

作者:Wendy W. Walters

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Many African diasporic novelists and poets allude to or cite archival documents in their writings, foregrounding the elements of archival research and data in their literary texts, and revising the material remnants of the archive. This book reads black historical novels and poetry in an interdisciplinary context, to examine the multiple archives that have produced our historical consciousness. In the history of African diaspora literature, black writers and intellectuals have led the way for an analysis of the archive, querying dominant archives and revising the ways black people have been represented in the legal and hegemonic discourses of the west. Their work in genres as diverse as autobiography, essay, bibliography, poetry, and the novel attests to the centrality of this critique in black intellectual culture. Through literary engagement with the archives of the slave trader, colonizer, and courtroom, creative writers teach us to read the archives of history anew, probing between the documents for stories left untold, questions left unanswered, and freedoms enacted against all odds. Opening new perspectives on Atlantic history and culture, Walters generates a dialogue between what was and what might have been. Ultimately, Walters argues that references to archival documents in black historical literature introduce a new methodology for studying both the archive and literature itself, engaging in a transnational and interdisciplinary reading that exposes the instability of the archive's truth claim and highlights rebellious possibility.

出版年:2013

內容簡介:

Chop suey. Sushi. Curry. Adobo. Kimchi. The deep associations Asians in the United States have with food have become ingrained in the American popular imagination. So much so that contentious notions of ethnic authenticity and authority are marked by and argued around images and ideas of food.

Eating Asian America: A Food Studies Reader collects burgeoning new scholarship in Asian American Studies that centers the study of foodways and culinary practices in our understanding of the racialized underpinnings of Asian Americanness. It does so by bringing together twenty scholars from across the disciplinary spectrum to inaugurate a new turn in food studies: the refusal to yield to a superficial multiculturalism that naively celebrates difference and reconciliation through the pleasures of food and eating. By focusing on multi-sited struggles across various spaces and times, the contributors to this anthology bring into focus the potent forces of class, racial, ethnic, sexual and gender inequalities that pervade and persist in the production of Asian American culinary and alimentary practices, ideas, and images.

This is the first collection to consider the fraught itineraries of Asian American immigrant histories and how they are inscribed in the production and dissemination of ideas about Asian American foodways.

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

If the advancement toward the administered world is nearing completion, if spectacularised societies, industrialised cultures, and reified consciousness have taken control, then, Adorno and Art shows how radical and revolutionary Adorno's aesthetic theory of art's double character remains, and how complex, imaginative and oppositional, forms of art offer, perhaps, the best hope for overcoming damaged life. The caricatures of Adorno, his politics and his aesthetics, are well known errors of judgement - widely repeated both by the academy and by the Left. Adorno's aesthetics has been accused of failing to keep pace with progressive artistic practices and for being socio-politically aloof. Despite the persistence of these caricatures, this book shows how significant images and themes in Adorno's theory remain relevant to the current situation of art, aesthetics and politics. The Adorno on show in this volume was no bourgeois mandarin, no arrogant aesthete, no esoteric mystic, no melancholy pessimist, and no academic expert holed up in the proverbial ivory tower.

出版社:Edinburgh University Press

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Provides a single-volume introduction to the important connection of Frankfurt School thought and modernist culture

Tyrus Miller's book offers readers a focused introduction to the Frankfurt School's important attempts to relate the social, political, and philosophical conditions of modernity to innovations in twentieth-century art, literature, and culture. The book pursues this interaction of modernity and modernist aesthetics in a two-sided, dialectical approach. Not only, Miller suggests, can the Frankfurt School's penetrating critical analyses of the phenomena of modernity help us develop more nuanced, historically informed and contextually sensitive analyses of modernist culture; but also, modernist culture provides a field of problems, examples, and practices that intimately affected the formation of the Frankfurt School's theoretical ideas.

The individual chapters, which include detailed discussions of Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, Herbert Marcuse as well as a survey of later Frankfurt School influenced thinkers, discuss the ideas of a given figure with an emphasis on particular artistic media or contexts: Benjamin with lyric poetry and architecture as urban art forms; Adorno with music; Marcuse with the liberationist art performances and happenings of the 1960s.

Key Features:

  • Introduces well-studied major figures such as Benjamin and Adorno in a new light, while connecting their ideas with problems in modernist art and culture
  • Offers a clear, thorough, and relevant survey of major ideas and figures
  • Provides a revisionary view of the rigorous connection of Frankfurt School theory and modernist culture

書名:Pynchon and Philosophy : Wittgenstein, Foucault and Adorno

作者:Martin Paul Eve

出版社:Palgrave Macmillan

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Thomas Pynchon, perhaps the most important living American author, is famed for his lengthy, complex and erudite fictions. Given these characteristics, an examination of the philosophical dimensions of Pynchon's works is long overdue. In Pynchon and Philosophy, Martin Paul Eve comprehensively and clearly redresses this balance, mapping Pynchon's interactions with the philosophy, ethics and politics of Ludwig Wittgenstein, Michel Foucault and Theodor W. Adorno, resulting in a fresh approach to these seminal novels.

Pynchon and Philosophy is based on the notion that Pynchon's brand of postmodern literature mocks theoretical frameworks. On these grounds, Pynchon has been accused of being an anti-rationalist, a postmodern nihilist figure who revels in the collapse of logic. In this book Eve shows that a fruitful showdown between these philosophical figures and Pynchon is now urgently needed to unearth the latent ethics within Pynchon's novels and to counter these wild claims.

書名:European aesthetics : a critical introduction from Kant to Derrida

作者:Robert L. Wicks

出版社:Oneworld

出版年:2013

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

The birth of the Enlightenment heralded a new reverence for the power of reason. But as science flourished in Europe, violence and brutality did not abate. In the French Revolution, thousands were guillotined and the death toll was vast. Philosophers asked whether we had become dehumanised by rationality and abstract political theory. Did art and literature provide a way to rediscover our soul and our compassion? Or could art be corrupted just as easily, used as propaganda to justify abhorrent acts?

In this masterful survey of European aesthetics over the last two hundred years, philosopher Robert L. Wicks argues that it is this tension between creativity and rationality that has characterised debate in the subject. Presenting the theories of sixteen seminal thinkers, including Kant, Nietzsche, Freud, and Derrida, European Aesthetics shows how each philosopher’s theory of art was motivated by broader topics in their thought, concerning who we are and what a good society should resemble.

With colour photographs and written in a lively but objective tone, Wicks analyses important pieces of art, makes critical comparisons between thinkers, and offers a bold conclusion on our contemporary aesthetic situation. In an internet age, where we are presented with endless opportunity, but also startling existential questions, this is the definitive account of the evolution of continental thought in this hugely relevant and exciting area of philosophy.

內容簡介:

A great novelist on his twin obsessions: writing and coding. What is the relationship between the two? Is there such a thing as the sublime in code? Can we ascribe beauty to the craft of coding?

Vikram Chandra is the award-winning author of two acclaimed novels and a collection of short stories - and has been a computer programmer for almost as long as he has been a writer. In his extraordinary new book he looks at the connection between these two worlds of art and technology. Coders are obsessed with elegance and style, just as writers are, but do the words mean the same thing to both? And is it a coincidence that Chandra is drawn to two seemingly opposing ways of thinking?

Exploring these questions, Chandra creates an idiosyncratic history of coding - exploring such varied topics as logic gates and literary modernism, the male machismo of geeks, the striking presence of an 'Indian Mafia' in Silicon Valley, and the writings of Abhinavagupta, the 10th - 11th century Kashmiri thinker. Part technology story and part memoir, Geek Sublime is a book of sweeping ideas. It is a heady and utterly original work.

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

The spike in global food prices in 2007–08 not only led to riots on several continents; it also reawakened fears about the world’s future ability to feed itself, as growing populations place greater demands on agricultural systems operating in increasingly difficult environmental and climatic conditions.

With more than half the world’s people and high levels of inequality, Asia lies at the centre of the global food-security challenge of the twenty-first century. The region – especially China and India – is drawing on world stocks and importing more staples, as its own farms strain to meet its growing middle classes’ desire for more meat and processed foods. Meanwhile, the smallholder farmers who supply 80% of the continent’s food confront continued poverty, as they struggle to raise output in the face of creeping environmental degradation, looming water shortages and the unpredictable effects of climate change.

As this Adelphi shows, there are no simple solutions. Today, rice is exported while some households still go hungry, unrest grows as land is appropriated for biofuels or industry, and nations compete over waters rich in fish. Only integrated policies that take into account the complex socio-economic and political aspects of food security have any chance of succeeding.

內容簡介:
  • Presents the main issues underlying the protection of the human rights of migrants, a central topic in human rights and refugee law
  • Brings together human rights lawyers and immigration lawyers for a rounded view of the legal issues
  • Offers a comparative perspective across different national jurisdictions

Economic interaction has enlarged the international trade in goods and services, but the safe and humane flow of persons across international borders remains a challenge in a State-based model of territorial jurisdictions. Once an immigrant enters a new host country the guarantee of respect for their human rights comes into question. Indeed, the legal and political constructions of inclusion or exclusion of migrants from the political community touch at the very heart of the cosmopolitan spirit of universal human rights.

This book brings together leading experts in the fields of migration and human rights law to examine central problems in the protection of the human rights of migrants. They explain the theoretical background of present issues in the area including, immigrant integration policies in Europe, the social and labour rights of migrants, the conditions and legal frameworks affecting migrant women, asylum seekers and refugees worldwide among many others. It explains in a clear and critical manner the legal and political implications of migration today in the context of an evolving globalized world.

Readership: This book would suit both practitioners and lawyers from national bodies, regional and international organisations. It would also be helpful to legal scholars and law faculties in general.

內容簡介:

This edited collection argues for the importance of recovering Indigenous participation within global networks of imperial power and wider histories of "transnational" connections. It takes up a crucial challenge for new imperial and transnational histories: to explore the historical role of colonized and subaltern communities in these processes, and their legacies in the present. Bringing together prominent and emerging scholars who have begun to explore Indigenous networks and "transnational" encounters, and to consider the broader significance of "extra-local" connections, exchanges and mobility for Indigenous peoples, this work engages closely with some of the key historical scholarship on transnationalism and the networks of European imperialism. Chapters deploy a range of analytic scales, including global, regional and intra-Indigenous networks, and methods, including histories of ideas and cultural forms and biography, as well as exploring contemporary legacies. In drawing these perspectives together, this book charts an important new direction in research.

內容簡介:

The consequences of English’s spread have become increasingly clear to its diverse speakers. Sometimes associated with a standardization leading to homogenization, often also with imperialism, English is increasingly understood to have no necessary connection with any country or group of countries. The willingness to accept that English has become Englishes might be less evident among so-called native speakers, but their authority is weaker than it seemed. The idea of World Englishes encourages us to re-imagine our understanding of the language. The difference between error and innovation can no longer be decided through assumptions about the language 'ownership'. In fact, the language is beginning to be a medium of the expression of identity for more and more people in very different contexts. This book puts examples from World Englishes into dialogue with postcolonial studies, in the belief that while postcolonial studies has obviously had much to say about English, it has either directly concerned or been influenced by English literary studies. The dialogue will correct misconceptions and misapprehensions in postcolonial studies, with World Englishes offering renewal for postcolonial studies. At the same time, the dialogue will also apply postcolonial studies' political and philosophical ideas to World Englishes, resulting in a postcolonial perspective on English today.

內容簡介:

As both distinctive local terrain and global crossroads, cities remain fascinating spaces of cultural contestation and meaning-making via the composing, playing, recording and consumption of popular music. From Gillett's The Sound of the City (1970) to Krims' Music and Urban Geography (2007), attention to popular music has allowed various soundings of the often unfathomable aspects of urban life. This book takes as its focus the social relations produced amidst and through popular music and cities. Such a focus allows a test of theories of globalization, hybridity, consumerism, networks and transnational flows of people, cultures and musical products. Covering themes as diverse as Russian Punk and African Hip-Hop, this global collection offers a timely contribution to the advancement of popular music studies.

書名:Lost in transition : Hong Kong culture in the age of China

內容簡介:

Looks at the fate of Hong Kong’s unique culture since its reversion to China.

In this timely and insightful book, Yiu-Wai Chu takes stock of Hong Kong’s culture since its transition to a Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China in 1997. Hong Kong had long functioned as the capitalist and democratic stepping stone to China for much of the world. Its highly original popular culture was well known in Chinese communities, and its renowned film industry enjoyed worldwide audiences and far-reaching artistic influence.

Chu argues that Hong Kong’s culture was “lost in transition” when it tried to affirm its international visibility and retain the status quo after 1997. In an era when China welcomed outsiders and became the world’s most rapidly developing economy, Hong Kong’s special position as a capitalist outpost was no longer a privilege. By drawing on various cultural discourses, such as film, popular music, and politics of everyday life, Chu provides an informative and critical analysis of the impact of China’s ascendency on the notion of “One Country, Two Cultures.” Hong Kong can no longer function as a bridge between China and the world, writes Chu, and must now define itself from global, local, and national perspectives.

“Even though it is written for an academic audience, this is a very readable book for the average reader. It is also extremely enlightening as it gives us a look into a cosmopolitan city that is changing before our eyes.” — San Francisco Book Review

“…a heartfelt, even white-hot examination of Hong Kong culture since the territory’s handover to the Mainland in 1997.” — Modern Chinese Literature and Culture

Yiu-Wai Chu is Director of the Hong Kong Studies Program and Professor of Modern Languages and Cultures at the University of Hong Kong. He has published several books, including (with Eva Kit-Wah Man) Contemporary Asian Modernities: Transnationality, Interculturality, and Hybridity.

書名:New media, development and globalization : making connections in the global South

出版年:2013

內容簡介:

New media, development and globalization are the key terms through which the future is being imagined and performed in governance, development initiatives and public and political discourse. Yet these authoritative terms have arisen within particular cultural and ideological contexts. In using them, we risk promoting over-generalized and seemingly unchallengeable frameworks for action and knowledge production which can blind us to the complex global patterns and promise of social reality.

This compelling book forces us to look at these terms afresh. Drawing on more than ten years of ethnographic fieldwork in Latin America, West Africa and South Asia, Don Slater seeks to challenge these terms as voicing specific northern narratives rather than universal truths, and to see them from the perspective of southern people and communities who are equally concerned to understand new machines for communication, new models of social change and new maps of social connection. The central question the book poses is: how we can democratize the ways we think and practise new media, development and globalization, opening these terms to dialogue and challenge within North-South relations?

Rooted in sociological debates, New Media, Development and Globalization will also be a provocative contribution to media and cultural studies, studies of digital culture, development studies, geography and anthropology.

內容簡介:

The rhetorical practices involved with the dissemination of scientific discourse are shifting. Addressing these changes, this book places the discourse of science in an increasingly multilingual and multicultural academic area. It contests monolingual assumptions informing scientific discourse, calling attention to emerging glocal discourses that make hybrids of the standard globalized and local academic English norms.English clearly has a hegemonic role as the lingua franca of global academia; this book conducts an intercultural rhetorical and textographic analysis to compare how Anglophone and non-Anglophone academics utilise the standardized rhetorical conventions for scientific writing. It takes an academic literacies approach, providing a rhetorically and pedagogically informed discussion. It enquires into the process of linguistic and rhetorical acculturation of both monolingual and multilingual scholars, and in doing so redefines the contemporary rhetoric of science.

內容簡介:

A groundbreaking account of America's role in global capitalism.

The all-encompassing embrace of world capitalism at the beginning of the twenty-first century was generally attributed to the superiority of competitive markets. Globalization had appeared to be the natural outcome of this unstoppable process. But today, with global markets roiling and increasingly reliant on state intervention to stay afloat, it has become clear that markets and states aren’t straightforwardly opposing forces.

In this groundbreaking work, LEO PANTICH and SAM GINDIN demonstrate the intimate relationship between modern capitalism and the American state, including its role as an “informal empire” promoting free trade and capital movements. Through a powerful historical survey, they show how the US has superintended the restructuring of other states in favor of competitive markets and coordinated the management of increasingly frequent financial crises.

THE MAKING OF GLOBAL CAPITALISM, through its highly original analysis of the first great economic crisis of the twenty-first century, identifies the centrality of the social conflicts that occur within states rather than between them. These emerging fault lines hold out the possibility of new political movements transforming nation states and transcending global markets.

內容簡介:

The establishment of the Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) points to the crucial role attributed to science and knowledge for the successful implementation of biodiversity politics by both scientists and policy-makers. With the increased importance of biodiversity in international politics, and in part inspired by the success the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has had in raising awareness of global warming, the call for an ‘IPCC for Biodiversity’ was successful.

The Politics of Knowledge and Global Biodiversity gives a full overview of the process of its implementation as finalised in 2013 and proposes an innovative conceptual framework that puts this specific case into a more general perspective of international politics and relations. It provides a detailed empirical analysis of the knowledge politics associated with the establishment of IPBES and its conceptual framework and methodological approach is grounded in a theoretical perspective.

This pioneering work is the first to examine IPBES in this way and is essential reading for researchers and scholars of International Relations, Environmental and Biodiversity Politics, Science-Policy Interfaces and Global Environmental Governance. It will also be of interest to political scientists and social scientists.

書名:Contemporary crisis fictions : affect and ethics in the modern British novel

作者:Emily Horton

出版社:Palgrave Macmillan

出版年:2014

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Contemporary Crisis Fictions offers a significant statement about the contemporary British novel in relation to three authors: Graham Swift, Ian McEwan, and Kazuo Ishiguro. All writing at the forefront of a generation, these authors sought to resuscitate the novel's ethico-political credentials, at a time which did not seem conducive to such a project. Thus, in a country often understood in terms of its aggressive individualism, consumer competition, and persistent nationalism, my claim for these writers is that, in addition to responding to this problematic context, they also work to establish a cosmopolitan ethics of interpersonal responsibility and cross-cultural awareness that is deeply relevant to contemporary British life. In part, this is a response to the gaps in past criticism, which repeatedly prioritises issues of textual self-consciousness over social and ethical concerns. Nevertheless, Contemporary Crisis Fictions celebrates these authors' writing on its own terms, highlighting the dialogical relationships each oeuvre establishes between local and global identity, as a means of approaching the 'structure of feeling' that links these works.

內容簡介:

Studies representations of white illness in Victorian travel narratives about Africa and the Caribbean

This interdisciplinary study explores both the personal and political significance of climate in the Victorian imagination. It analyses foreboding imagery of miasma, sludge and rot across non-fictional and fictional travel narratives, speeches, private journals and medical advice tracts. Well-known authors such as Joseph Conrad are placed in dialogue with minority writers such as Mary Seacole and Africanus Horton in order to understand their different approaches to representing white illness abroad. The project also considers postcolonial texts such as Wilson Harris’s Palace of the Peacock to demonstrate that authors continue to ‘write back’ to the legacies of colonialism by using images of climate induced illness.

Key Features

  • Offers a new perspective on the study of Victorian literature and imperialism by studying depictions of white bodies made ill by the tropical environment
  • Bridges the critical approaches of illness narrative analysis, race and travel studies
  • Analyses canonical travel literature alongside works by lesser known and minority authors
  • Shows the pervasive afterlife of climate in the cultural imagination, even after the discoveries of germ theory and contagionism

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Artificial Culture is an examination of the articulation, construction, and representation of "the artificial" in contemporary popular cultural texts, especially science fiction films and novels. The book argues that today we live in an artificial culture due to the deep and inextricable relationship between people, our bodies, and technology at large. While the artificial is often imagined as outside of the natural order and thus also beyond the realm of humanity, paradoxically, artificial concepts are simultaneously produced and constructed by human ideas and labor. The artificial can thus act as a boundary point against which we as a culture can measure what it means to be human. Science fiction feature films and novels, and other related media, frequently and provocatively deploy ideas of the artificial in ways which the lines between people, our bodies, spaces and culture more broadly blur and, at times, dissolve.

Building on the rich foundational work on the figures of the cyborg and posthuman, this book situates the artificial in similar terms, but from a nevertheless distinctly different viewpoint. After examining ideas of the artificial as deployed in film, novels and other digital contexts, this study concludes that we are now part of an artificial culture entailing a matrix which, rather than separating minds and bodies, or humanity and the digital, reinforces the symbiotic connection between identities, bodies, and technologies.

書名:The transnationalism of American culture : literature, film, and music

出版社:Routledge

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book studies the transnational nature of American cultural production, specifically literature, film, and music, examining how these serve as ways of perceiving the United States and American culture. The volume’s engagement with the reality of transnationalism focuses on material examples that allow for an exploration of concrete manifestations of this phenomenon and trace its development within and outside the United States.

Contributors consider the ways in which artifacts or manifestations of American culture have traveled and what has happened to the texts in the process, inviting readers to examine the nature of the transnational turn by highlighting the cultural products that represent and produce it. Emphasis on literature, film, and music allows for nuanced perspectives on the way a global phenomenon is enacted in American texts within the U.S, also illustrating the commodification of American culture as these texts travel.

The volume therefore serves as a coherent examination of the critical and creative repercussions of transnationalism, and, by juxtaposing a discussion of creativity with critical paradigms, unveils how transnationalism has become one of the constitutive modes of cultural production in the 21st century.

How are love and emotion embodied in material form?

Love Objects explores the emotional potency of things, addressing how objects can function as fetishes, symbols and representations, active participants in and mediators of our relationships, as well as tokens of affection, symbols of virility, triggers of nostalgia, replacements for lost loved ones, and symbols of lost places and times.

Addressing both designed 'things with attitude' and the 'wild things' of material culture, Love Objects explores a wide range of objects, from 19th-century American portraits displaying men's passionate friendships to the devotional and political meanings of religious statues in 1920s Ireland.

內容簡介:

In recent years an increasing number of scholars have incorporated a focus on emotions in their theories of material culture, transnationalism and globalization, and this book aims to contribute to this field of inquiry. It examines how ‘emotions’ can be theorized, and serves as a useful analytical tool for understanding the interrelated mobility of humans, objects and images. Ethnographically rich, and theoretically grounded case studies offer new perspectives on the relations between migration, material culture and emotions. While some chapters address the many different ways in which migrants and migrant artists express their emotions through objects and images in transnational contexts, other chapters focus on how particular works of art, everyday objects and artefacts can evoke feelings specific to particular migrant groups and communities. Case studies also analyse how artists, academics and policy makers can stimulate positive interaction between migrants and non-migrant communities.

The study of “intermediality” explores the exchangeability of expressive means and aesthetic conventions between different art and media forms, a trend amplified and enabled by the digital age. It has become a powerful structuring concept in digital humanities, where traditional boundaries between disciplines as well as genres are being eroded. Contributors to this volume discuss the concepts of intermediality and digital humanities from a range of theoretical perspectives. While in the humanities, generally, there is continued focus on traditional textuality, this up-to-date collection demonstrates the explosive potential of new forms of hypermedia studies to transform our understanding of a range of genres.

書名:Anglophone Literatures in the Asian Diaspora : Literary Transnationalism and Translingual Migrations

內容簡介:

Conversant in critical and creative modes of thought, this book examines the uses of translation in Asian and Anglophone literatures to bridge discontinuous subjectivities in Eurasian transnational identities and translingual hybridizations of literary Modernism. Anglophone Literatures in the Asian Diaspora: Literary Transnationalism and Translingual Migrations focuses on the roles of mysticism and language in Dictée's poetic deconstruction of empire, engaging metaphysical issues salient in the history of translation studies to describe how Theresa Cha and four other authors––Sui Sin Far, Chuang Hua, Kazuo Ishiguro, and Virginia Woolf––used figurative and actual translations to bridge discontinuous subjectivities. The author Karen Lee’s explorations of linguistic politics and poetics in this eclectic group of writers concentrates on the play of innovative language deployed to negotiate divided or multiple consciousness.

Over the past decade, emerging scholarship on transnationalism and writers of Asian heritage has focused primarily on diasporic Asian literary production on American soil. For instance, Rachel Lee’s seminal publication, The Americas of Asian American Literature: Gendered Fictions of Nation and Transnation (1999), examines how Asian American feminist literary criticism is shaped by global-local influences in the United States. Additionally, Transnational Asian American Literature: Sites and Transits (2006), edited by Shirley Lim, et al., explores the transnational aspects of Asian literature in America, analyzing a discursive globalized imaginary as American writers Asian of heritage move within and across national boundaries. Following Lim’s anthology, Lan Dong’s Transnationalism and the Asian American Heroine (2010) concerns the representations of women transposed from Asian oral traditions of “women warriors” to the United States.

However, less scholarship on the Anglophone literatures of Asia and the Americas has focused on Asian writers within broader comparative frameworks of global perspectives outside Asian American literature and in comparison to Asian British literature, or aside from the parameters of specific Asia-to-America tropes such as the aforementioned “woman warrior,” as in Sheng-mei Ma’s Immigrant Subjectivities in Asian American and Asian Diaspora Literatures (1998), or Kandice Chuh and Karen Shimakawa’s Orientations: Mapping Studies in the Asian Diaspora (2001). Uniquely situated among these discussions, Lee’s book extends current lines of inquiry by including the oeuvres of diasporic Asian writers in Asia, America, and abroad, presenting their works within the contexts of transnationalism via the dual lenses of translation and translingual migration.

As new scholarship, this book foregrounds literary transnationalism and translingual migrations in a context of East to West as a study of representative Anglophone literatures in the Asian diaspora. Anglophone Literatures in the Asian Diaspora: Literary Transnationalism and Translingual Migrations is highly relevant to university teaching audiences in postcolonial literature, Asian American studies, Anglophone writers of the Asian diaspora, cultural feminism, Eurasian studies, and translation studies.

書名:Are we what we eat? : food and identity in late twentieth-century American ethnic literature

作者:William R. Dalessio

出版社:Cambria Press

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Over the last forty years, scenes that prominently feature acts of preparing and eating food have filled the pages of novels and memoirs written by American immigrants and their descendants because these writers understand that eating is more than a purely biological function but, instead, works to define who we are in the United States and abroad. Are We What We Eat? critically analyzes eight of these pieces of ethnic American literature, which demonstrate the important role that cooking and eating play in the process of identity formation.

In each of its chapters, Are We What We Eat? studies two texts that treat food preparation and food consumption in a thematically similar way. Oscar Hijuelos’ novel Our House in the Last World (1983) and Gish Jen’s novel Typical American (1991)—the subjects of the first chapter—explore what happens when immigrants engage in excessive acts of overeating either to assimilate into the dominant American culture or to reconnect to their native cultures. Tina DeRosa’s novel Paper Fish (1980) and Peter Balakian’s memoir Black Dog of Fate (1996)—the focus of the second chapter—depict third third-generation Americans who reconnect to their ethnic cultures as they learn to prepare ethnic foods with their immigrant grandmothers. In Julia Alvarez’s novel How the García Girls Lost Their Accents (1991) and Andrew X. Pham’s memoir Catfish and Mandala (1999)—the third pair of texts—the respective protagonists return to their birth nations, where they consume indigenous foods as a way of placating their physical and psychological hungers. Oreo (1974), a novel by Fran Ross, and Mona in the Promised Land (1996), a second novel by Gish Jen—the subjects of the last chapter—highlight the important roles that cooking and eating play in the process of forming a multicultural identity of racial and ethnic hybridity.

With the growing scholarly and popular interests in food and ethnicity in the United States, Are We What We Eat? is a timely analysis of food in literature and culture. To date, much of the scholarship on cooking and eating in ethnic American literature has focused on a specific ethnic group, but has not examined, in any in depth way, the similarities among the different ethnic and racial groups that comprise American culture. Are We What We Eat? presents a cross-cultural analysis that considers the common experiences among several ethnic cultures and, at the same time, recognizes the different ways that each culture was (and in some cases, still is) marginalized by the dominant American one. For those interested in reading, teaching, and writing about food in literature and culture, Are We What We Eat? should be an important reference book.

In the conclusion of Are We What We Eat? William Dalessio explains how he has offered one specific way of interpreting cooking and eating in the literature and recognizes that there are other valid ways of reading the texts. Dalessio correctly suggests that his book may act as an example of how scholars and critics can discuss food in literature by any author, regardless of her or his ethnicity. Throughout Are We What We Eat?, Dalessio implements theories of food, ethnicity, and gender, not only to provide his close textual readings, but also to develop his own theory of how cooking and eating may be studied in literature and in culture. With analysis that is articulate and accessible to most, Are We What We Eat? will be an illuminating study for all who are interested in food, ethnicity, or gender in American culture.

內容簡介:

‘As the [book suggests], “global Bollywood” has become an important site for assessing (and projecting notions of) complex changes taking place in Indian society since the early 1990s. And like the phenomenon itself, the perspectives on offer are as often perplexing as illuminating. The signifiers of globalization—the corporatization of culture, the ubiquity of consumption, the mediatization of everyday life, the technologization of the economy—have found in Bollywood their prime symbolic real estate, and herein lies both its relevance and its attraction for the foreseeable future.’ —Sumita S. Chakravarty in ‘TOPIA: Canadian Journal of Cultural Studies’

'In this book, global India has moved on from postcolonial India and through economic liberalization, and new forms of cultural nationalism stand poised to leave its borders. Recommended.' —A. Hirsh, emeritus, Central Connecticut State University, ‘Choice’

'An informative discourse on the impact of globalization on Bollywood cinema and its implications. Scholars of film and cultural studies will find it useful for the range of topics it encompasses.' —‘South Asian Diaspora’

Commercial cinema has always been one of the biggest indigenous industries in India, and remains so in the post-globalization era, when Indian economy has entered a new phase of global participation, liberalization and expansion. Issues of community, gender, society, social and economic justice, bourgeois-liberal individualism, secular nationhood and ethnic identity are nowhere more explored in the Indian cultural mainstream than in commercial cinema. As Indian economy and policy have gone through a sea-change after the end of the Cold War and the commencement of the Global Capital, the largest cultural industry has followed suit. For example, the global Indian community (known in Indian official terms as the Non-Resident Indian or the NRI) has become an integral part of the cultural representation of India.

The politics and ideology of Indian commercial cinema have become extremely complex, offering a fascinating case-study to scholars of Global Culture. Of particular interest is the re-positioning of individual identity vis-à-vis nation, religion, class, and gender. On one hand, the definition of 'nationhood' and/or community has become much more fluid, keeping in tune with the sweeping universal claims of globalization; the films have consequently revised the scope of their narratives to match India’s emerging global business ambitions. On the other hand, the political realities of India's long-standig enmity with Pakistan and the international rise of 'Hindutva' has also contributed to a new strain of jingoism in Indian cinema. ‘Bollywood and Globalization’ is a significant scholarly contribution to the current debate on Indian cinema, nationhood and Global Culture. The articles represent a variety of theoretical and pedagogical approaches, and the collection will be appreciated by students and scholars alike.

Readership: Scholars and students of Indian cinema, South Asian culture and politics and post-Global India.

書名:British Asian fiction : framing the contemporary

內容簡介:

In this outstanding collection of essays, editors Neil Murphy and Wai-chew Sim seek not so much to demarcate the field of British Asian fiction, but to offer due acknowledgment of the artistic merit of the works of selected authors and simultaneously register their cultural significance. This volume demonstrates in situ the virtues of commentary that engages in a substantial manner with formal and aesthetic considerations, even as it implicates the discourses of alterity that dominate contemporary cultural criticism. Additionally, the essays delineate the complex subject positions explored by authors and texts, and focus on the way writers negotiate the exigencies of their location within and between different social formations. If it is the case that British literature can no longer be discussed in monocultural terms because of the impact of the writers under consideration, it is also the case that the diverse trans-cultural positions they explore are often less specified than proclaimed. Addressing difference, commensurability, and form-related notions of “truth-content,” these essays enlarge our understanding of the range of British (and affiliated) identities, as well as the cultural contexts from which they arose. Working as academics and critics from Singapore, a useful vantage point, Murphy and Sim have extended the parameters of “British Asian” to include, not just writers from South Asia as is traditionally the case, but writers whose parents, or who themselves, have migrated to Britain from other regions of Asia, for example, Japan, Hong Kong, and Malaysia.

This initiative has made it possible for professors Murphy and Sim to bring together, first, an interestingly varied group of authors, among them those who came to prominence in the 1980s––Salman Rushdie, Timothy Mo, Kazuo Ishiguro–––as well as their younger contemporaries––Meera Syal, Romesh Gunesekera, Monica Ali, Hari Kunzru, Ooi Yang-May; and, second, a broad and diverse range of novels that span Timothy Mo’s Sour Sweet (1982) and Tariq Ali’s A Sultan in Palermo (2005), the fourth volume in his Islam quintet.

內容簡介:

When Canadian Literature in English was first published by Longman in 1985 it was described (in the Modern Language Review) as ‘a standard reference work on the subject’ and ‘the best critical account of its subject that we possess so far’. The book was released in London and New York, as such things were done at the time, but never distributed particularly well in Canada, where it faded, rapidly, from view.

W. J. Keith, writing in the Preface to the Revised Edition, admits his first inclination was to embark on a total rewrite of the Longman edition. On further consideration, however, Keith came to realize that the 1985 publication was completed at ‘the close of a major phase in the Canadian literary tradition’ and that the ‘remarkable flowering that began to manifest itself in the middle of the twentieth century had run its course by the beginning of the new millennium.’

That being the case, Keith would argue that a ‘number of writers who had already achieved [ considerable ] stature further developed their reputations’ (in the period 1985-2005) ‘but only a few extended them’. Keith is also quick to admit that he has chosen to ignore utterly the ‘popular’ at the one extreme (Robert Service, Lucy Maud Montgomery) as well as the ‘avant-garde’ (bpnichol, Anne Carson) at the other, in favour of those authors whose style lends itself to the simple pleasure of reading, and to that end he dedicates his history ‘to all those (including the general reading public whose endangered status is much lamented in the ‘‘Polemical Conclusion’’) who recognize and celebrate the dance of words.’

內容簡介:

The collection of essays titled Environmentalism in the Realm of Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature discusses the environmental and ecocritical themes found in works of science-fiction and fantasy literature. It focuses on an analysis of important literary works in these genres to yield an understanding of how they address the environmental issues we are facing today. Organized into four sections titled “Industrial Dilemmas,” “The Natural World, Community, and the Self,” “Materialism, Capitalism, and Environmentalism,” and “Dystopian Futures,” the essays included also investigate the solutions that these works present to ensure the sustainability of our natural world and, in turn, the sustainability of humanity. This collection will appeal to a broad range of scholars, including those who focus their studies on one of, or all of, the following fields: Ecocriticism, Science Fiction and Fantasy Literature, and Environmentalism in Literature. The essays investigate the myriad ways that science fiction and fantasy literature address environmental concerns, with a focus on the detrimental effects – on humanity, on society – of environmental destruction. With topics ranging from the dangers of industrial progress to the connection between environmental degradation and the destruction of the individual, to environmental dangers posed by capitalistic societies to ignored warnings of ecological crises, the essays each tactfully analyze the relationship between the environmental themes in literature and how readers and scholars can learn from the irresponsible treatment of the environment, while also considering solutions to this crisis that are found in science fiction and fantasy literature.

書名:Foundational texts of world literature

內容簡介:

What makes a world author? How did Homer become a «cosmopolitan» author? How does a Mayan creation narrative challenge our Western logocentric ideas of foundational texts? What might world literature look like to a fourth-century Roman reader? How do past and more recent translations of Dante’s Commedia help us to rethink the changing definitions of world literature? How did the Alexander romance adapt to an Islamic context? How did Tasso’s epic adapt to a later cultural context dominated by the «Turkish Fear»? What shaped the West’s first impression of The Tale of Genji? How does the Ovidian myth of Arachne migrate from Japan to the Caribbean? What are the foundational metaphors at the root of Goethe’s weltliteratur paradigm? What happens when cultures import canonical texts for lack of their own? By what process does an eccentric writer reconstruct a new foundational text from heterogeneous fragments of other cultures? How did literary criticism contribute to the canonization of the Thousand and One Nights in Western literature? What is left of the primacy of the national language when writers are published simultaneously in various translations? How do modern misreadings shape our understanding of national epics and ensure their survival?
World literature, first intuited in Goethe’s foundational idea of weltliteratur as literature that seeks to transcend national boundaries, is viewed here in its essential mobility and migratory capacity, which relies on the centrality of the reading act. This volume focuses on foundational texts as they are read across cultures, languages and historical contexts. Its goal is to reflect on canonical texts – from Homer’s Odyssey to Murakami’s Genji, from Cervantes to Mayan hieroglyphs, from Dante to Coetzee, from Goethe to Lezama Lima, from the Thousand and One Nights to Jorge Luis Borges – in a global perspective: how they are translated, appropriated, transformed, how they travel across different cultures and languages, their foundational status evolving accordingly in a post-European world.
Foundational Texts of World Literature includes contributions by Gerardo Aldana, Sandra Bermann, Piero Boitani, Michael Emmerich, Azadeh Yamini Hamedani, Stefan Helgesson, Paulo Lemos Horta, Juan Pablo Lupi, Peter Madsen, Ulrich Marzolph, Suzanne Saïd, Evanghelia Stead, Mads Rosendahl Thomsen, and Richard Van Leeuwen.

作者:edited by Ajaya Kumar Sahoo, ichiel Baas, Thomas Faist

出版社:Rawat Publications

內容簡介:

The present study of transnationalism was born out of observations that migrants no longer simply cross borders to live elsewhere, but regularly turn this ‘crossing borders’ into a lifestyle of its own. The chapters in this volume present not only an important overview of the state of the study on Indian transnationalism, but also act as an important source of inspiration to think beyond the concept and the way it has been studied so far. The book will be useful to students and researchers working in the areas of Indian diaspora and transnationalism.

內容簡介:

The volume takes stock of the various extensions the growing field of ecocriticism has seen over the last decade or so. Contributions from 15 specialists examine the increasing theoretical and methodological self-reflection of the field, its expanding range of literary analysis across canonical, thematic, and national boundaries, as well as the interdisciplinary perspectives that have developed around it. The volume stresses two aspects in particular: the ethical questions raised by ecocritical inquiry and the importance and variability of close reading as a core technique of ecocritical analysis. It includes a selection of representative case studies from American, French, Italian, and Spanish literature.

內容簡介:

This study aims to provide an insight in the underlying fabric of colonial remains in Taiwan. Heritage became a prevailing phenomenon during the formation of modern nation-states. The image of Japan as an advanced modernized nation is rooted within Taiwan and is represented by heritage activities associated with Japanese colonial sites. The case of Japanese colonial heritage in Taiwan shows similarities and differences to the situation of colonial sites within the postcolonial metropole/colony power unbalance.

書名:Recentring Asia : histories, encounters, identities

出版社:Global Oriental

出版年:2011

內容簡介:

These essays argue that recentring Asia necessitates a revision not only of notions of Asia but also of the centre itself. On the one hand, recentring Asia asserts the centrality of overlooked Asian histories, encounters and identities to world history, culture and geopolitics. On the other hand, recentring provides a way to address and rethink the concept of the centre, a term critical to Asian Studies, area studies and, more broadly, to the study of globalization, postcolonialism, diaspora, modernism and modernity. Drawing on new approaches in these fields, Recentring Asia asks the reader to rethink the centre not as a single site towards which all is oriented, but as a zone of encounter, exchange and contestation.

書名:Theorizing ambivalence in Ang Lee’s transnational cinema

作者:Chih-Yun Chiang

出版年:2012

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

Theorizing Ambivalence in Ang Lee’s Transnational Cinema takes a unique approach to the study of transnational cinema by examining the representation of Chinese identity in Ang Lee’s films and the public discourse from various audience communities. This book focuses on his transnational films Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) and Lust, Caution (2007) as two case studies. Providing a systematic analysis of audience discourse from Taiwan, Mainland China, Hong Kong, and the Chinese diaspora, this study challenges ideological constructions of racial and ethnic identity, such as Chineseness, that are objectively defined within a static nation-state mechanism in an era of globalization. Through the study of the representation of Chineseness, this book expands the theoretical discussions on the politics of national identity and cultural syncretism represented in transnational cinema and further provides a good example of the familiar cycle of ambivalent emotion toward the West in the aftermath of postcolonialism. China and Taiwan’s long history of engaging in a subordinate relationship with the West enhances the resurgence of ambivalence. The representations become a significant and predominant way to mediate one’s bodily experiences, to connect and collaborate with one another, and to form and inform one’s cultural identity. The analyses of these films and the audience discourse are essential to an understanding of the ways in which new media technologies impact and alter the human interactions between peoples from various cultural, social, and political contexts.

書名:Transcultural imaginaries : history and globalization in contemporary Canadian literature

作者:Nora Tunkel

出版社:Universitätsverlag Winter

出版年:2012

內容簡介:

What impact do global interconnectedness and migrations have on our imagination? How do contemporary writers make use of history to express these changes? Do increasing planetary complexities lead to new constructions of identities? ‘Transcultural Imaginaries’ traces answers to these questions by presenting an interdisciplinary perspective on recent Canadian literature written in English. The study offers a tour d’horizon of various interrelated socio-cultural issues and theoretical contexts: it examines postmodern and postcolonial trends in the genre of historical fiction in Canada, as well as theories on globalization and approaches to cultural plurality (multi-, inter-, and transculturalism). The study also sketches possible parameters for the analysis of transcultural features in literary texts. These parameters – Space, Place, and Time; Voices and Perspectives; Transfer, Exchange, and Resistance – are applied to a variety of texts by authors such as Dionne Brand, Michael Ondaatje, Madeleine Thien, George Elliott Clarke, and Thomas King.

If the Buddha were alive today, he’d be the living embodiment of green living. He’d be collecting cans on the freeway, riding his bike to work, and replacing all his light bulbs—one little satori at a time. In this book you can channel His Holiness, reduce your footprint, and experience little Aha! moments when you

Eat mindfully and lose the meat
Make a Zen garden that nourishes the earth
Choose sustainable clothing
Meditate while walking instead of driving
Let go of attachment to things by giving away belongings
Living green is living Zen. Now you can take right action and walk a green talk, starting today—just think how proud the Buddha would be!

書名:Postcolonial literary history and Indian English fiction

作者:Paul Sharrad

出版社:Cambria Press

出版年:2008

館藏目錄查詢 

內容簡介:

This book is the successful outcome of a difficult feat––it represents an interesting new approach to a well-trodden field of study. In this collection of essays, the author revisits certain issues within the distinctive frames of each essay. Of particular interest is the way the author is continually mindful of how postcolonial studies might be reconceptualised––an approach that many critics of note have taken in recent years, especially Neil Lazarus, Reed Dasenbrock, and Bart Moore-Gilbert, in different ways. This author’s way is, in part, to reconsider “postcolonial literary history…against ideas of History as a dominant epistemology.”

Another refreshing take here too is the way in which the theoretical positions are meaningfully explored in the context of imaginative literary texts; the book brings together the best scholarly qualities of close reading and a sophisticated and nuanced understanding of theory and the history that cloaks everything.

This book is a very significant contribution to postcolonial studies and advances the ever more richly complicated discourse that has emerged in the field.

書名:A passage to globalism : globalization, identities and South Asian diasporic fiction in Britain

內容簡介:

As the history of British colonialism recedes and a new phase of global integration intensifies, the critical tools of postcolonialism become less useful in reading South Asian diasporic fiction in Britain. A Passage to Globalism: Globalization, Identities, and South Asian Diasporic Fiction in Britain responds to the need for a critical framework that is able to address the relationships between identities and contemporary globality. It examines the politics of representation that are involved in positioning and categorizing South Asian diasporic fiction within such a world and asks questions of who and what are represented and how and to whom in selected works of South Asian diasporic fiction. A secondary aim of A Passage to Globalism addresses how South Asian diasporic fiction might extend and qualify theoretical explanations of globalization. This book asks what role does South Asian diasporic fiction play in constructing narratives of globalization? And how does literary analysis help us understand how «stories» of globalization are told? Testing and extending the utility of concepts from both Marxist and liberal explanations of globalization in this way, it argues for an integrated theoretical approach to a set of texts that operate at the complex intersection between Britain’s colonial past and the complexity of contemporary globality as well as across local, national, and transnational literary contexts.

內容簡介:

Contending Perspectives on Neoliberal Globalization uses accessible readings to introduce students to the realities of neoliberal globalization and its impact on the lives of people around the world.

Section II focuses on global-national linkages through discussions of the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and World Trade Organization. It addresses community-based development, and globalization and culture.

Section III details the consequences of global stratification. Topics include the privatization of water and energy, the Bhopal gas tragedy, and Chiquita Banana in Colombia.

Commentary and questions are built into each section, providing context for the material and jumping off points for classroom discussion.

Contending Perspectives on Neoliberal Globalization can be used in classes on international development, and comparative and international politics.

內容簡介:

Worlding brings ideas about “virtual” places and societies together with perceptions about the “real” world in an era of mounting global uncertainty. As mass media and the Internet consume ever-increasing portions of our lives, are we becoming disengaged from face-to-face human interaction and real-world concerns? Or is the virtual world actually bringing people closer together and making them more involved with social issues? Worlding argues that the “virtual” and the “real” are profoundly interconnected, often in ways we don’t fully appreciate. Drawing on sociology, cultural studies, philosophy, media analysis, and technology studies, Worlding makes the argument that virtual experience and social networking can be vital links to utopian visions and an appreciation of the world’s diversity.
