Critical Subjectivities

by Victoria Best, Critical Subjectivities Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Critical Subjectivities book, This comparative study of the work of Colette and Marguerite Duras analyses the complex and intricate links between identity and narrative, and challenges recent theoretical discussion in both literary and psychoanalytic domains. Exploring the textual preoccupations that Colette and Duras shared - in particular their concerns with gender relations, with the genesis of the woman writer, and with the fraught but fascinating bonds between mothers and daughters and lovers - this analysis highlights how the profoundly different perspectives of Colette and Duras mark out space for a new interrelation of self and other; an interrelation that emphasises the enigmatic territories of consciousness such as fantasy and memory, and the significant collision of subjectivities in erotic, desiring and familial relations. Working with the most recent and innovative developments in performative theory and Kristevan psychoanalysis, this book offers a new reading of subjectivity through the creative interplay of theory and text.

The Virtues Of Vulnerability

by Sara Rushing, The Virtues Of Vulnerability Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Virtues Of Vulnerability book, "There are many locations, relationships and experiences through which we learn what it means to be a citizen. Contemporary healthcare - or "the clinic" - is one of those sites. Being drawn into the complex "medical-legal-policy-insurance nexus" as a patient entails all sorts of learning, including, it is argued here, political learning. When we are subjected as a patient, frequently through a discourse of "choice and control," or "patient autonomy," what do we learn? What happens when the promise of a certain kind of autonomy is accompanied by demands for a certain kind of humility? What do we learn about agency and self-determination, as well as trust, self-knowledge, dependence, and resistance under such conditions of acute vulnerability? This book explores these questions on a journey through medicalized encounters with giving birth, navigating death and dying, and seeking treatment for life-altering mental illness (here PTSD among veterans). While the body has always posed a problem for Western thought, and been treated as an obstacle to freedom and independence and something our rational capacity must master and control, this book aims to counter that intellectual-historical and political tendency by asking how might we reimagine the political potential of embodiment, or make space for considering "the virtues of vulnerability." In particular, the book offers a novel conception of democratic citizen-subjectivity, grounded in an ethical disposition of humility-informed-relational-autonomy"--

Counter Cola

by Amanda Ciafone, Counter Cola Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Counter Cola book, Counter-Cola charts the history of one of the world’s most influential and widely known corporations, the Coca-Cola Company. It tells the story of how, over the past 130 years, the corporation has tried to make its products and brands physically and culturally a central part of global daily life in over 200 countries. Through this story of Coca-Cola, Amanda Ciafone reveals the pursuit of corporate power within the key economic transformations—liberal, developmentalist, neoliberal—of the 20th and 21st centuries. A story of global capitalism, it is not without contest. People throughout the world have redeployed the corporation, its commodities, and brand images to challenge the injustices of daily life under capitalism. As Ciafone shows, assertions of national economic interests, critiques of cultural homogenization, fights for workers’ rights, movements for environmental justice, and debates over public health have obliged the corporation to justify itself in terms of the common good, demonstrating capitalism’s imperative to assimilate critiques or reveal its limits.

Acts Of Knowing

by Stephen Cowden, Acts Of Knowing Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download Acts Of Knowing book, This provocative book's starting point is a deep and profound concern about the commodification of knowledge within the contemporary university. Acts of Knowing aims to provide readers with a means of understanding the issues from the perspective of Critical Pedagogy; an educational philosophy which believes that 'knowing' must be freed from the constraints of the financial and managerialist logics which dominate the contemporary university. Critical Pedagogy is important for three key reasons: it conceptualises pedagogy as a process of engagement between the teacher and taught; secondly that that engagement is based on an underlying humanistic view about human worth and value; and thirdly that the 'knowing' which can come out of this engagement needs to be understood essentially as exchange between people, rather than a financial exchange. Cowden and Singh argue that the conception of education as simply a means for securing economic returns for the individual and for the society's positioning in a global marketplace, represents a fundamentally impoverished conception of education, which impoverishes not just individuals, but society as a whole.

The Subject Of Childhood

by Michael O'Loughlin, The Subject Of Childhood Books available in Docs, PDF, EPUB, Mobi, Textbook, Kindle Format. Download The Subject Of Childhood book, The Subject of Childhood is a collection of essays on early childhood education/childhood studies that brings critical psychological, psychoanalytic, and cultural studies perspectives to bear on understanding the lives children live. Central concerns running through these essays are the emergence of subjectivity in the child; the complexity of conceptualizing the relationship between external cultural and social forces; and the internal sense of agency that we know that each child possesses. Together, the volume is a blending of interdisciplinary theoretical writing, personal autobiographical inquiry, and concrete examples from the author's work with teachers in schools and from his clinical practice as a child psychoanalyst. Written for advanced undergraduate and graduate students and professionals across the English-speaking world in early childhood education, childhood education, educational foundations, and cultural studies in education, this book functions as a core text for advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in child development, child psychology, sociology of education, childhood studies, and early childhood education.
