Book Summary:

編輯室報告沒有出於任何策劃,本期適巧有三篇研究論文與一篇研究紀要出於華文的文學脈絡。中文背景的學術參與在中國大陸向來是文化研究的主力之一,這一期四篇不期然的會合(中國文學、台灣文學、馬華文學),是我們歡迎的經驗。余桂榕〈小米文化與原鄉婦女的生命力〉,外審結果是一推薦一不推薦。兩位審查人都給了相當精彩的人類學專業評審意見。在這個基礎上,編委會經討論決議策劃「批評與回應」,一方面得以呈現本文在人類學專業理論與學術期待之外在我們看來十分難得的田野洞察,一方面也得以藉著嚴格的批評意見來深化這篇紀要的可能意涵。可惜,未推薦本文的審查人來函指責本刊編委會未循形式審查流程送第三審, 表示不願參與「批評與回應」為本刊「背書」這篇紀要。我們遺憾因此未能刊出這位審查人對這篇紀要的寶貴批評意見。同時,我們也願藉此說明,本刊編委會並非總是消極依循外審意見來作形式裁決,跨領域的刊物宗旨也使我們不自限於某單一學科認識的學術形式與價值。本刊以「批評與回應」作為積極的接觸區(contact zone),我們不需要任何評審的「背書」,而是期待些許對話的善意與慷慨。本期「思想論壇」,賀照田對高橋哲哉〈何謂戰後責任?〉(2007年12月,新竹交大)一篇演講的與談以及高橋的回應,有興趣的讀者可參閱讀本刊第四期「思想翻譯」高橋哲哉的兩篇文章。本期「思想翻譯」,子安宣邦論三木清〈讀書論〉,有興趣的讀者可參閱本刊第六期增刊子安宣邦專輯。與Réne Schérer在法國席亞克(Chilhac,2007年9月),午後寧靜的艾里耶河畔,一場隨興而富有啟發的專題訪談。「專題」無他,就是Réne Schérer,跟他所折射的法國思想。我要謝謝楊凱麟幾位朋友的整理與翻譯。本刊第二期曾經專訪攝影家張乾琦。2008年10月至2009年1月在新加坡國家博物館的《雙重:張乾琦的攝影藝術》(Doubleness: Photography of Chang Chien-Chi),我們獲得兩篇展評,觀點各異,同時併陳以饗讀者。也是攝影家的布希亞談攝影世界,dailymotion上流通一件六分鐘的專訪,法語訪談沒有字幕,我們為其作了中文「轉譯」。這也是今後本刊可能為讀者提供的一項新的服務:在youtube或dailymotion之類媒介影片流通的內容,若進行的語言不屬中文英文,又沒有中英文字幕,那麼在興趣相符、翻譯資源允許之下,可考慮提供「轉譯」並附上影片出處的網址。

Book Summary:

*Shortlisted for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay* Selected as a Book of the Year 2016 by the Financial Times, Guardian, New Statesman, Observer, The Millions and Emerald Street 'Flâneuse [flanne-euhze], noun, from the French. Feminine form of flâneur [flanne-euhr], an idler, a dawdling observer, usually found in cities. That is an imaginary definition.' If the word flâneur conjures up visions of Baudelaire, boulevards and bohemia – then what exactly is a flâneuse? In this gloriously provocative and celebratory book, Lauren Elkin defines her as ‘a determined resourceful woman keenly attuned to the creative potential of the city, and the liberating possibilities of a good walk’. Part cultural meander, part memoir, Flâneuse traces the relationship between the city and creativity through a journey that begins in New York and moves us to Paris, via Venice, Tokyo and London, exploring along the way the paths taken by the flâneuses who have lived and walked in those cities. From nineteenth-century novelist George Sand to artist Sophie Calle, from war correspondent Martha Gellhorn to film-maker Agnes Varda, Flâneuse considers what is at stake when a certain kind of light-footed woman encounters the city and changes her life, one step at a time.

Book Summary:

During the 1930s in the United States, the Works Progress Administration developed the Federal Writers’ Project to support writers and artists while making a national effort to document the country’s shared history and culture. The American Guide series consists of individual guides to each of the states. Little-known authors—many of whom would later become celebrated literary figures—were commissioned to write these important books. John Steinbeck, Saul Bellow, Zora Neale Hurston, and Ralph Ellison are among the more than 6,000 writers, editors, historians, and researchers who documented this celebration of local histories. Photographs, drawings, driving tours, detailed descriptions of towns, and rich cultural details exhibit each state’s unique flavor.

Book Summary:

In The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer asks a basic human question: How do we overcome tyranny? His answer goes to the heart of a revolutionary way of thinking about the very end of human existence and the nature of created being. His answer, declared performatively over the course of a symbolic pilgrimage, urges the view that humanity has an intrinsic need of grace in order to be itself. In portraying this outlook, Chaucer contributes to what has been called the "palaeo-Christian" understanding of creaturely freedom. Paradoxically, genuine freedom grows out of the dependency of all things upon God. In imaginatively inhabiting this view of reality, Chaucer aligns himself with that other great poet-theologian of the Middle Ages, Dante. Both are true Christian humanists. They recognize in art a fragile opportunity: not to reduce reality to a set of dogmatic propositions but to participate in an ever-deepening mystery. Chaucer effectively calls all would-be members of the pilgrim fellowship that is the church to behave as artists, interpretively responding to God in the finitude of their existence together.

Book Summary:

We are told modernity's end will destabilize familiar ways of knowing, doing, and being, but are these changes we should dread—or celebrate? Four significant events (and the iconic images that represent them) catalyze this question: the consecration of openly gay Episcopalian bishop Gene Robinson, the mistreatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib prison, the politicization of the death of Terri Schiavo, and the disastrous response to Hurricane Katrina. Framed by an original appropriation of Michel Foucault, and drawing on resources in visual culture theory and the history of photography, Ellen T. Armour explores the anxieties, passions, and power dynamics bound up in the photographic representation and public reception of these events. Together, these phenomena expose modernity's benevolent and malevolent disruptions and reveal the systemic fractures and fissures that herald its end, for better and for worse. In response to these signs and wonders, Armour lays the groundwork for a theology and philosophy of life better suited to our (post)modern moment: one that owns up to the vulnerabilities that modernity sought to disavow and better enables us to navigate the ethical issues we now confront.

Ecosystem research has emerged in recent decades as a vital, successful, and sometimes controversial approach to environmental science. This book emphasizes the idea that much of the progress in ecosystem research has been driven by the emergence of new environmental problems that could not be addressed by existing approaches.

Book Summary:

This collection of essays revisits gender and urban modernity in nineteenth-century Paris in the wake of changes to the fabric of the city and social life. In rethinking the figure of the flâneur, the contributors apply the most current thinking in literature and urban studies to an examination of visual culture of the period, including painting, caricature, illustrated magazines, and posters. Using a variety of approaches, the collection re-examines the long-held belief that life in Paris was divided according to strict gender norms, with men free to roam in public space while women were restricted to the privacy of the domestic sphere.

Book Summary:

How do and how did people perceive, manage and respond to natural disasters? How are the causes of natural disasters explained in history, how are they explained today? This volume investigates relationships between forces of nature and human culture in a multidisciplinary context bridging science and the humanities. Forces of nature and cultural responses is divided into four sections: (1) ball lightnings, (2) earthquakes and tsunamis, (3) volcanic eruptions and plagues, and (4) hurricanes and floodings. Specifically, Section 1 investigates theories and case studies of ball lightning phenomena. Section 2 includes a psychological study on the impact of earthquakes on academic performance, a study on tsunami vulnerability and recovery strategies in Thailand and a study on the social and economic aftermaths of a tsunami and a hurricane in Hawaii. Section 3 consists of a chapter on volcanic eruptions and plagues as well as cultural responses in Ancient Times and a study on contemporary vulnerability and resilience under chronic volcanic eruptions. Section 4 investigates the impact of hurricane Katrina on the current jazz scene in New Orleans and cultural responses to floodings in The Netherlands in Early Modern Times.

Book Summary:

This book provides a new conceptual framework for understanding how the Indian nations of the early American South emerged from the ruins of a precolonial, Mississippian world. A broad regional synthesis that ranges over much of the Eastern Woodlands, its focus is on the Indians of the Carolina Piedmont - the Catawbas and their neighbors - from 1400 to 1725. Using an "eventful" approach to social change, Robin Beck argues that the collapse of the Mississippian world was fundamentally a transformation of political economy, from one built on maize to one of guns, slaves, and hides. The story takes us from first encounters through the rise of the Indian slave trade and the scourge of disease to the wars that shook the American South in the early 1700s. Yet the book's focus remains on the Catawbas, drawing on their experiences in a violent, unstable landscape to develop a comparative perspective on structural continuity and change.
