 E.T.A. Hoffmann's Orient: Romantic Aesthetics and the German Imagination Joanna Neilly 9781909662988 Legenda

The German Romantics were fascinated by the Orient and its potential to inspire poetic creation. E.T.A. Hoffmann was no exception: across the wide range of his work as an author, composer, and music critic, the Orient is a persistent topic. In particular, Hoffmann creatively absorbed the influence of the imagined Orient - its popular European reception - on German literature, music, and...

Transitioning: Matter, Gender, Thought
 
A cogent analysis of the development in orthodoxy that is often described as 'the swing to the Right', a rupture with pre-existing attitudes and patterns of behaviour that has had major consequences not only for Jewish society but also for the nature of Jewish spirituality. The consequent enshrinement of texts as the sole source of authenticity is explored in depth, along with its implications...

 Animate Planet: Making Visceral Sense of Living in a High-Tech Ecologically Damaged World Kath Weston 9780822362326 Duke University Press
In Animate Planet Kath Weston shows how new intimacies between humans, animals, and their surroundings are emerging as people attempt to understand how the high-tech ecologically damaged world they have made is remaking them, one synthetic chemical, radioactive isotope, and megastorm at a time. Visceral sensations, she finds, are vital to this process, which yields a new animism in which...

 The Origins of Isis: Ideology, Tactics and Perception in the Middle East Simon Mabon Stephen Royle 9781784536961 I. B. Tauris & Company

The rapid expansion of ISIS and its swathe of territorial gains across the Middle East have been headline news since 2013.

 Understanding Conflicts about Wildlife: A Biosocial Approach Catherine M. Hill Amanda D. Webber Nancy E. Priston 9781785334627 Berghahn Books

Conflicts about wildlife are usually portrayed and understood as resulting from the negative impacts of wildlife on human livelihoods or property. However, a greater depth of analysis reveals that many instances of human-wildlife conflict are often better understood as people-people conflict, wherein there is a clash of values between different human groups. Understanding Conflicts About...

 When Colorblindness Isn't the Answer: Humanism and the Challenge of Race Anthony B. Pinn 9781634311229 Pitchstone Publishing
The future of the United States rests in many ways on how the ongoing challenge of racial injustice in the country is addressed. Yet, humanists remain divided over what if any agenda should guide humanist thought and action toward questions of race. In this volume, Anthony B. Pinn makes a clear case for why humanism should embrace racial justice as part of its commitment to the well-being of life...

Eleanor Ty's bold exploration of literature, plays, and film reveals how young Asian Americans and Asian Canadians have struggled with the ethos of self-sacrifice preached by their parents.

 Plain Text: The Poetics of Computation Dennis Tenen 9781503602281 Stanford University Press
This book challenges the ways we read, write, store, and retrieve information in the digital age. Computers--from electronic books to smart phones--play an active role in our social lives. Our technological choices thus entail theoretical and political commitments. Dennis Tenen takes up today's strange enmeshing of humans, texts, and machines to argue that our most ingrained intuitions about...
