Book Summary:

The two volumes Gender and Migration: crossing borders and shifting boundaries offer an interdisciplinary perspective on women and men on the move today, exploring the diversification of migratory patterns and its implication in different parts of the world. It reflects the vibrant scholarly debates as well as unique learning and teaching experiences of the Project Area Migration, the International Women's University. While pointing to historical continuities, it is shown how contemporary ways of bridging time and space are shaped by the new opportunities - or lack of them - related to the process of globalization. This shaping is gendered. Gendering migration paves the way for further intersectional analysis. Vol. I critically examinesmobility, globalization and migration policy from a gender perspective. It includes case studies on internal and international migratory processes inand from Latin America, Europe, Africa, Asia and North America. Furthermore it makes an important contribution to the issue of agency and empowerment emerging from migrant women's experience.

Book Summary:

Canada is often called a pluralist state, but few commentators view Aboriginal self-government from the perspective of political pluralism. Instead, Aboriginal identity is framed in terms of cultural and national traits, while self-government is taken to represent an Aboriginal desire to protect those traits. Shifting Boundaries challenges this view, arguing that it fosters a woefully incomplete understanding of the politics of self-government. Taking the position that a relational theory of pluralism offers a more accurate interpretation, Tim Schouls contends that self-government is better understood when an "identification" perspective on Aboriginal identity is adopted instead of a "cultural" or "national" one. He shows that self-government is not about preserving cultural and national differences as goods in and of themselves, but rather is about equalizing current imbalances in power to allow Aboriginal peoples to construct their own identities. In focusing on relational pluralism, Shifting Boundaries adds an important perspective to existing theoretical approaches to Aboriginal self-government. It will appeal to academics, students, and policy analysts interested in Aboriginal governance, cultural studies, political theory, nationalism studies, and constitutional theory.

Book Summary:

Alexis M. Silver examines the experiences of unauthorized immigrant youth and U.S.-born children of immigrant parents, and their search for membership in a multi-layered political environment that inconsistently offers them spaces of inclusion while barring them from full membership and participation. Drawing on four years of ethnographic research and seven years of in-depth interviews in North Carolina, this longitudinal study explores how national, state, local, and institutional policies interact to create a chaotic and confusing environment for immigrant and second-generation youth.

Book Summary:

This history of Middle Eastern women is the first to survey gender relations in the Middle East from the earliest Islamic period to the present. Outstanding scholars analyze a rich array of sources ranging from histories, biographical dictionaries, law books, prescriptive treatises, and archival records, to the Traditions (hadith) of the Prophet and imaginative works like the Thousand and One Nights, to modern writings by Middle Eastern women and by Western writers. They show that gender boundaries in the Middle East have been neither fixed nor immutable: changes in family patterns, religious rituals, socio-economic necessity, myth and ideology—and not least, women’s attitudes—have expanded or circumscribed women’s roles and behavior through the ages.

Book Summary:

Muslim women in France are at the centre of public debates about religion in the public sphere, gender politics and immigration. The hijab or Islamic headscarf has become emblematic of these issues. Based on ethnographic research in Petit Nanterre, a suburb 15 kilometres northwest of Paris, this dissertation examines various actors who seek to compartmentalize or shape Muslim women's identities. I begin with academic anthropological approaches to Islam and women, and with changing legal and popular definitions in France of laicite (French secularism) and its relationship to Islam. I then argue that the continued marriage-partner preference for "traditional" North African women expressed by male North African immigrants constrains the identity politics of local women, while a "cultural freezing" phenomena instils greater social pressure to enact and renegotiate certain cultural and religious mores in the banlieue. These cultural preferences are fortified by local gossip focused on women's religious and sexual propriety and by the Panopticonlike architecture of the housing projects. French feminist organizations like Femmes Solidaires ("Women in Solidarity") often hold neo-Orientalist positions, seeking to "save" Muslim women in the banlieue, and ultimately reinforcing negative stereotypes about the headscarf and gender politics in Muslim communities. I conclude that the women of Petit Nanterre themselves move within and without these categories as postcolonial "hybrids". While French social scientists and journalists have focused on the adaptational difficulties Muslims face in a nation legally and philosophically committed to secularism, there have been few academic studies undertaken from an ethnographic perspective focused on first-generation Muslim Maghrebian women living in the banlieue. My research emphasizes their voices and migratory experiences. I demonstrate that French Muslim women are key actors in promoting the visibility of Muslims in the West and in contemporary linkages between gender politics and religion in the public sphere.

Book Summary:

"The book mounts a challenge to the notion of a clear distinction between public and private and attempts to account for the mobility of the many boundaries between the two. The first essay introduces some of those problematic boundaries in the light of the influential studies of Habermas, Koselleck, Aries and Chartier, who together have helped shape our understanding of the formation of the modern public and private spheres. A number of essays deal with the nature of public opinion in relation to state control and with the role of the intelligentsia. Some investigate non-political forms of sociability and the creation of various kinds of publics within the cultural realm. Others scrutinize gender roles and the validity of the accepted correspondence of male/female to public/private in the light of women's use of the printed word.

Book Summary:

Solomon examines the principal themes and structures of the novels of French writer Louis-Ferdinand Celine, taking into account his theatre, anti-Semitic pamphlets, and critical works. A biographical introduction and a chronology note the historical and private events that shaped the author's life and influenced his development as a writer. An overview of Celine's writings explores the author's vision of the human condition and his perception of the redemptive value of the work of art by which the disorder of life is resolved by the order of writing. Emphasis is placed on the self-reflective nature of Celine's fiction, particularly on the function of the mythologized head wound to express the transition between autobiography and fiction. Each of the volume's principal chapters is devoted to an individual novel or closely related group of novels, considered in chronological order. A brief plot summary and indication of the work's particular relevance for the reader precedes the analysis of the text. Each work, from Journey to the End of the Night to Rigadoon, is considered not only with respect to its intrinsic interest but also in terms of its describing a phase in the apprenticeship of life that Celine's picaresque protagonist undergoes as he is progressively stripped of his illusions and comes to resemble the narrator more closely.

Book Summary:

In 2004, South Africa's National Research Foundation (NRF) initiated a foresight exercise on the challenges of knowledge-making in social sciences, law, and the humanities (SSLH) in South Africa in the 21st century. The main contributions to this project are collected in this volume. It is designed to open horizons about the value of and prospects for SSLH research, while simultaneously promoting and stimulating scholarship in this domain. The contributions provide a useful starting point for thinking about the current state of SSLH research, and gives researchers locked into single disciplinary perspectives a taste of the debates and trends in allied disciplines. They also provide an organizing frame for a new, broad-based, open conversation among the many interested parties involved in producing, reproducing and disseminating knowledge.
