Intercorporeality : emerging socialities in interaction
edited by Christian Meyer, Jürgen Streeck, J. Scott Jordan
New York : Oxford University Press, 
Part I. Fundamental intercorporeality -- Intercorporeality and interaffectivity -- Intercorporeality as a foundational dimension of human communication -- Feeling our way: enkinesthetic enquiry and immanent intercorporeality -- Haptic sociality: the embodied interactive constitution -- Part II. Extended intercorporeality -- Children's expressive handling of objects in a shared world -- The cultural organization of intercorporeality: interaction, emotion, and the senses among the Wolof of northwestern Senegal -- Taking the worldby hand: how (some) gestures mean -- Intercorporeality at the motor block: on the importance of a practical sense for social cooperation and coordination -- Intercorporeal phantasms: kineesthetic alignment with imagined bodies in self-defense training -- Part III. Intercorporeality beyond the body -- Sensible objects: intercorporeality and enactive knowing through things -- More than a body: a material engagement approach -- Challenges of conducting interaction with technologically mediated bodies -- Achieving intersubjectivity in augmentative and alternative communication (AAC): intercorporeal, embodied, and disembodied practices -- Wild meaning: the intercorporeal nature of objects, bodies, and words.
" This book draws inspiration from Maurice Merleau-Ponty's concept of intercorporeality to offer a new, multidisciplinary perspective on the body. By drawing attention to the body's ability to simultaneously sense and be sensed, Merleau-Ponty transcends the object-subject divide and describes how bodies are about, into, and within other bodies. Such inherent relationality constitutes the essence of intercorporeality, and the chapters in this book examine such relationality from a host of diverse perspectives. The book begins with an introductory chapter in which the editors review the current research on bodily interaction, and introduce the notion of intercorporeality as a potentially integrative framework. The first section then offers four chapters devoted to clarifying theoretical and developmental perspectives on intercorporeality. Section 2 contains three chapters that provide insight on intercorporeality from evolutionary, historical, and cross-sectional perspectives. In Section 3, four chapters examine the intercorporeal nature of meaning-making during human interaction. Section 4 then presents three chapters that explore the intercorporeal nature of multi-agent interactions and the role that non-animate bodies (i.e., objects) play in such interaction. Throughout all the chapters, the authors work to integrate research in their specific discipline into the larger, transdisciplinary notion of intercorporeality. This collection provides an indisputably unique perspective on bodies-in-interaction, while simultaneously offering an interdisciplinary way forward in contemporary scholarship on bodies, meaning, and interaction.

The crisis of multiculturalism in Europe : a history
Chin, Rita C-K, 1970- author
Princeton : Princeton University Press, 
The multicultural and multiculturalism -- The birth of multicultural Europe -- Managing multicultural societies -- Race, nation, and multicultural society -- Muslim women, sexual democracy, and the defense of freedom -- The "failure" of multiculturalism -- The future of multicultural Europe?
"From the influx of immigrants in the 1950s to contemporary worries about refugees and terrorism, The Crisis of Multiculturalism in Europe examines the historical development of multiculturalism on the Continent. Rita Chin argues that there were few efforts to institute state-sponsored policies of multiculturalism, and those that emerged were pronounced failures virtually from their inception. She shows that today's crisis of support for cultural pluralism isn't new but actually has its roots in the 1980s. Chin looks at the touchstones of European multiculturalism, from the urgent need for laborers after World War II to the public furor over the publication of The Satanic Verses and the question of French girls wearing headscarves to school. While many Muslim immigrants had lived in Europe for decades, in the 1980s they came to be defined by their religion and the public's preoccupation with gender relations. Acceptance of sexual equality became the critical gauge of Muslims' compatibility with Western values. The convergence of left and right around the defense of such personal freedoms against a putatively illiberal Islam has threatened to undermine commitment to pluralism as a core ideal. Chin contends that renouncing the principles of diversity brings social costs, particularly for the left, and she considers how Europe might construct an effective political engagement with its varied population." -- from publisher web site.

Strange contagion : inside the surprising science of infectious behaviors and viral emotions and what they tell us about ourselves
Kravetz, Lee Daniel, author
New York, NY : Harper Wave, 2017
The valley of the shadow -- The perfect model -- The frenzied -- The motivators -- The interrupters -- The interlopers -- The conversation -- The community.
"Picking up where The Tipping Point leaves off, respected journalist Lee Daniel Kravetz's Strange Contagion is a provocative look at both the science and lived experience of social contagion. In 2009, tragedy struck the town of Palo Alto: A student from the local high school had died by suicide by stepping in front of an oncoming train. Grief-stricken, the community mourned what they thought was an isolated loss. Until, a few weeks later, it happened again. And again. And again. In six months, the high school lost five students to suicide at those train tracks. A recent transplant to the community and a new father himself, Lee Daniel Kravetz's experience as a science journalist kicked in: what was causing this tragedy? More important, how was it possible that a suicide cluster could develop in a community of concerned, aware, hyper-vigilant adults? The answer? Social contagion. We all know that ideas, emotions, and actions are communicable--from mirroring someone's posture to mimicking their speech patterns, we are all driven by unconscious motivations triggered by our environment. But when just the right physiological, psychological, and social factors come together, we get what Kravetz calls a "strange contagion:" a perfect storm of highly common social viruses that, combined, form a highly volatile condition. Strange Contagion is simultaneously a moving account of one community's tragedy and a rigorous investigation of social phenomenon, as Kravetz draws on research and insights from experts worldwide to unlock the mystery of how ideas spread, why they take hold, and offer thoughts on our responsibility to one another as citizens of a globally and perpetually connected world"--

The plow, the pen and the sword : images and self-images of medieval people in the Low Countries

Part 1. Group cultures -- The clergy : self-image and ideology -- Image and self-image of the aristocracy -- Church views on peasants : cultural exchange between the Church and the peasantry -- Images of trade, merchants, trade settlements and cities -- Part 2. Exemplary studies -- Oral and written traditions in the Versus de Unibove -- Rituals of humiliation and triumph : Stavelot, 1065-1071 -- Early manifestations of urban mentalities : Sint-Truiden, Trier and Cambrai, ca. 1050-1150 -- A tournament of the dead : religious diversity in an exemplum by Caesarius of Heisterbach -- Conclusion -- Appendix 1 -- Appendix 2.
"This book compares the cultures of the different social groups living in the Low Countries in the early Middle Ages. Clergy, nobility, peasants and townsmen greatly varied in their attitudes to labor, property, violence, and the handling and showing of emotions. Künzel explores how these social groups looked at themselves as a group, and how they looked at the other groups. Image and self-image could differ radically. The results of this research are specified and tested in four case studies on the interaction between group cultures, focusing respectively on the influence of oral and written traditions on a literary work, rituals as a means of conflict management in weakly centralized societies, stories as an expression of an urban group mentality, and beliefs on death and the afterlife"--Provided by publisher.

Attack of the 50 ft. women : how gender equality can save the world!
Mayer, Catherine, author
London : HQ, 2017
Not a single country anywhere in the world has achieved gender equality. In more than a few countries, progress for women has stalled or is reversing. Voters in the United States chose a misogynist over a female candidate for President. Yet in many of these countries, the majority of politicians and business leaders profess to believe in gender equality-as well they might. One report predicts a boost to global GDP of GBP8.3 trillion by 2025 simply by making faster progress towards narrowing the gender gap. Researchers point to many other potential benefits too, not least in improved relations between the sexes and a healthier, more peaceful planet. If gender equality promises benefits not just to women, but to everyone, why aren't we embracing it? And how can we speed the pace of change? Fewer than nine percent of world leaders are female, but the few women who have broken through include towering figures such as Angela Merkel. Could 50-foot women save the day? These questions have gripped journalist and author Catherine Mayer since she accidentally founded the Women's Equality Party in March 2015 and watched it grow in months from an idea to a vibrant political force with more than 70 branches across the UK. In Attack of the fifty foot women, her insightful, revelatory, often hilarious, and hugely inspiring book, she tackles those questions and many more, sharing inside views and experiences from building a party, and bringing together global research with analyses and interviews based on her own far-flung research. And she goes further. Campaigning for the Women's Equality Party ahead of elections in May 2016, she noticed that many people found it hard, in the absence of any real-life examples, to envisage a gender-equal world. So she takes us there, to the place she calls Equalia. What is it like? Does gender equality make for a society that is more equal in other ways too? Who does the low-paid jobs? How does gender express itself in a place freed from gender programming? What's the sex like? What's on the telly? For some fascinating answers and brilliant thought experiments-and a blueprint for reaching Equalia-read Attack of the fifty foot women.

Aging in America : a cultural history
Samuel, Lawrence R., author
Philadelphia : University of Pennsylvania Press, 
1. Old in the Country of the Young -- 2. The De-Aging of America -- 3. The Aging of Aquarius -- 4. The Perpetual Adolescent -- 5. The Silver Tsunami -- 6. Raging Against Aging.
Aging is a preoccupation shared by beauty bloggers, serious journalists, scientists, doctors, celebrities--arguably all of adult America, given the pervasiveness of the crusade against it in popular culture and the media. We take our youth-oriented culture as a given but, as Lawrence R. Samuel argues, this was not always the case. Old age was revered in early America, in part because it was so rare. Indeed, it was not until the 1960s, according to Samuel, that the story of aging in America became the one we are most familiar with today: aging is a disease that science will one day cure, and in the meantime, signs of aging should be prevented, masked, and treated as a source of shame. By tracing the story of aging in the United States over the course of the last half century, Samuel vividly demonstrates the ways in which getting older tangibly contradicts the prevailing social values and attitudes of our youth-obsessed culture. As a result, tens of millions of adults approaching their sixties and seventies in this decade do not know how to age, as they were never prepared to do so. Despite recent trends that suggest a more positive outlook, getting old is still viewed in terms of physical and cognitive decline, resulting in discrimination in the workplace and marginalization in social life. Samuels concludes Aging in America by exhorting his fellow baby boomers to use their economic clout and sheer numbers to change the narrative of aging in America. -- Provided by publisher.

The marriage paradox : why emerging adults love marriage yet push it aside
Willoughby, Brian J., author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, 
Modern Marriage and Emerging Adulthood in the United States -- Dating, Hooking Up, and Love: Relationships during Emerging Adulthood -- Why Marriage Still Matters: Understanding Marital Paradigms During Emerging Adulthood -- I Want to Get Married...Just Not Right Now -- Marriage is Important...Just Not That Important -- Finding the Right Person to Marry -- The Influence of Parents and Families -- Social Influences and Marriage -- Gender and Gender Role Expectations -- The Counterculture of Married Emerging Adults -- Looking Ahead: The Future of the Marriage Paradox.
" Marriage has been declared dead by many scholars and the media. Marriage rates are dropping, divorce rates remain high, and marriage no longer enjoys the prominence it once held. Especially among young adults, marriage may seem like a relic of a distant past. Yet young adults continue to report that marriage is important to them, and they may not be abandoning marriage, as many would assume. The Marriage Paradox explores both national U.S. data and a smaller sample of emerging adults to find out how they really view marriage today. Interspersed with real stories and insight from emerging adults themselves, this book attempts to make sense of the increasingly paradoxical ways that young adults are thinking about marriage. The combination of national trends, statistical findings, and quotations from emerging adults makes for a deep exploration of why we see the marital trends of today, and why they may not actually represent emerging adults moving away from marriage.

Celebrity and the feminist blockbuster
Taylor, Anthea, 1972- author
London : Palgrave Macmillan, 
Introduction -- 'Blockbuster' Feminism and Celebrification -- The 1960s/1970s Blockbuster and Ongoing Feminist Stardom -- Helen Gurley Brown : Prototypical Celebrity Feminism, Cultural Intermediaries, and Agency -- Betty Friedan : The 'Mother' of Feminism, Self-fashioning, and the Celebrity Mystique -- Gremaine Greer : 'The Star Feminism Had to Have', Unruliness, and Adaptable Celebrity -- The New Bestsellers, Online Media, and Branding Feminism in the Twenty-first Century -- Naomi Wolf : Twitter and the Transformation of of 'Third wave' Celebrity -- Sheryl Sandberg and Roxane Gay : The Limits and Possibilities of Contemporary Blockbuster Feminism -- Amy Poehler and Lena Dunham : Celebrity Memoirs, Comedy, and Digital Activism -- Conclusion : The Future of Celebrity Feminism - Contemporary Celebrity Culture, the Blockbuster, and Feminist Star Studies -- Index.
In the first book-length study of celebrity feminism, Taylor convincingly argues that the most visible feminists in the mediasphere have been authors of bestselling works of non-fiction: feminist 'blockbusters'. Celebrity and The Feminist Blockbuster explores how the authors of these popular feminist books have shaped the public identity of modern feminism, in some cases over many decades. Maintaining a distinction between women who are famous because of their feminism and those who later add feminism, as a political mode of public subjectivity, cannot in any simple way be seen as homologous with other forms of stardom. Moving deftly from the 1960s to the present, focusing on how feminist authors have actively worked to manufacture their public personas, she demonstrates that the blockbuster remains crucial to feminist celebrification but is now often augmented with digital media. The book considers the questions: What is celebrity feminist? Does celebrity feminism differ from other forms of renown? How might it shape popular understandings of feminism? Advancing celebrity studies by placing the figure of the feminist front and centre, Celebrity and the Feminist Blockbuster is essential reading for all those interested in gender, popular feminism, and the politics of renown? -- from back cover.

Towards the end of the nineteenth century and for the first few years of the twentieth, a strange invasion took place in Britain. The citadel of power, privilege and breeding in which the titled, land-owning governing class had barricaded itself for so long was breached. The incomers were a group of young women who, fifty years earlier, would have been looked on as the alien denizens of another world - the New World, to be precise. From 1874 - the year that Jennie Jerome, the first known 'Dollar Princess', married Randolph Churchill - to 1905, dozens of young American heiresses married into the British peerage, bringing with them all the fabulous wealth, glamour and sophistication of the Gilded Age. Anne de Courcy sets the stories of these young women and their families in the context of their times. Based on extensive first-hand research, drawing on diaries, memoirs and letters, this richly entertaining group biography reveals what they thought of their new lives in England - and what England thought of them.

Reading with Patrick : a teacher, a student, and a life-changing friendship
Kuo, Michelle author
New York : Random House, 2017
A Raisin in the Sun -- The free write -- The Fire Next Time -- The Death of Ivan Ilyich -- Crime and Punishment -- The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe -- He wishes for the cloths of Heaven -- Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass -- I have read everything on this paper (the guilty plea) -- To Paula in late spring -- Easter morning.
Michelle Kuo arrived in the rural town of Helena, Arkansas, as a Teach for America volunteer in 2004, bursting with optimism and drive. But she soon encountered the jarring realities of life in one of the poorest counties in America. In this memoir, Michelle shares the story of her complicated but rewarding mentorship of one student, Patrick Browning, and his remarkable literary and political awakening. Fifteen and in the eighth grade, Patrick begins to thrive under Michelle's exacting attention. However, after two years of teaching, Michelle leaves Arkansas to attend law school. When, on graduating, she learns that Patrick has been jailed for murder, Michelle returns to Helena and resumes Patrick's education as he sits in jail awaiting trial. For the next seven months they pore over classic novels, poems, and history, and Patrick is galvanized by the works of Frederick Douglass, James Baldwin, Marilynne Robinson, W. S. Merwin, and many others.

Hard-boiled Hollywood : crime and punishment in postwar Los Angeles
Lewis, Jon, 1955- author
Oakland, California : University of California Press, 
Introduction -- 1. The real estate of crime : the Black Dahlia dumped by the side of the road -- 2. Mobsters and movie stars : crime, punishment, and Hollywood celebrity -- 3. Hollywood confidential : crime and punishment in postwar Los Angeles -- 4. Hollywood's last lonely places : the sad, short stories of Barbara Payton and Marilyn Monroe.
"The history of Hollywood's postwar transition is framed by two spectacular dead bodies: Elizabeth Short, AKA the Black Dahlia, found dumped and posed in a vacant lot in January 1947 and Marilyn Monroe, the studio era's last real movie star, discovered dead at her home in August 1962. Short and Monroe are just two of the many left for dead after the collapse of the studio system, Hollywood's awkward adolescence during which the company town's many competing subcultures--celebrities, moguls, mobsters, gossip mongers, industry wannabes, and desperate transients--came into frequent contact and conflict. Hard-Boiled Hollywood focuses on the lives lost at the crossroads between a dreamed-of Los Angeles and the real thing after the Second World War, whose reality was anything but glamorous"--Provided by publisher.

Thou shalt do no murder : Inuit, injustice, and the Canadian Arctic
Harper, Kenn, 1945- author
Iqaluit, Nunavut : Nunavut Arctic College Media, 2017
"This is a story of fur trade rivalry and duplicity, isolation and abandonment, greed and madness, and a struggle for the affections of an Inuit woman during a time of major social change in the High Arctic. Doubts over the validity of Canadian sovereignty and an official agenda to confirm that sovereignty added to the circumstances in which a guilty verdict against the leader of the Inuit accused was virtually assured. The show trial that took place in Pond Inlet in 1923 marked a collision of two cultures with vastly different conceptions of justice and conflict resolution. It marked an end to the Inuit traditional way of life and ushered in an era in which Inuit autonomy was supplanted by dependence on traders and police, and later missionaries. Kenn Harper draws on a combination of Inuit oral history, archival research, and his own knowledge acquired through 50 years in the Arctic to create a compelling story of justice and injustice in the Canadian far north."--

Signal crimes : social reactions to crime, disorder, and control
Innes, Martin, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2014
Drawing upon a ten-year programme of fieldwork research, Signal Crimes: The Social Organisation of Reacting to Crime and Social Control presents the results from a series of inter-linked empirical studies that have resulted in the concept of a 'signal crime': an incident that changes how people think, feel and behave about their safety due to their actions operating as signals to the presence of wider risks and threats.

Refuge : rethinking refugee policy in a changing world
Betts, Alexander, 1980- author
New York, NY : Oxford University Press, 
Introduction -- Global disorder -- Time-warp -- Panic -- Rethinking ethics : the duty of rescue -- Rethinking havens : reaching everyone -- Rethinking assistance : restoring autonomy -- Rethinking post-conflict : incubating recovery -- Rethinking governance : institutions that work -- Back to the future.
"Global refugee numbers are at their highest levels since the end of World War II, but the system in place to deal with them, based upon a humanitarian list of imagined "basic needs," has changed little. In Refuge, Paul Collier and Alexander Betts argue that the system fails to provide a comprehensive solution to the fundamental problem, which is how to reintegrate displaced people into society. Western countries deliver food, clothing, and shelter to refugee camps, but these sites, usually located in remote border locations, can make things worse. The numbers are stark: the average length of stay in a refugee camp worldwide is 17 years. Into this situation comes the Syria crisis, which has dislocated countless families, bringing them to face an impossible choice: huddle in dangerous urban desolation, rot in dilapidated camps, or flee across the Mediterranean to increasingly unwelcoming governments. Refuge seeks to restore moral purpose and clarity to refugee policy. Rather than assuming indefinite dependency, Collier-author of The Bottom Billion-and his Oxford colleague Betts propose a humanitarian approach integrated with a new economic agenda that begins with jobs, restores autonomy, and rebuilds people's ability to help themselves and their societies. Timely and urgent, the book goes beyond decrying scenes of desperation to declare what so many people, policymakers and public alike, are anxious to hear: that a long-term solution really is within reach.

At the altar of lynching : burning Sam Hose in the American South
Mathews, Donald G., author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Before the burning : Southern mastery -- Sex, danger, and religion : facing a "savage fury" -- Kindling for the fire -- Burning Sam Hose -- After the fury : rape and history -- After the fury : the blind and the sighted -- At the altar : crucifixion.
"The story of a black day-laborer called Sam Hose killing his white employer in a workplace dispute ended in a lynching of enormous religious significance. For many deeply-religious communities in the Jim Crow South, killing those like Sam Hose restored balance to a moral cosmos upended by a heinous crime. A religious intensity in the mood and morality of segregation surpassed law, and in times of social crisis could justify illegal white violence--even to the extreme act of lynching. In At the Altar of Lynching, distinguished historian Donald G. Mathews offers a new interpretation of the murder of Sam Hose, which places the religious culture of the evangelical South at its center. He carefully considers how mainline Protestants, especially women, not only in many instances came to support or accept lynching, but gave the act religious meaning and justification"--Provided by publisher.

Fear of crime in the United States : causes, consequences, and contradictions
Lane, Jodi, 1967-
Durham, North Carolina : Carolina Academic Press, 
The current state of fear of crime in America : a broad overview -- Reviewing the fear of crime literature : what has been learned from 45 years of research? -- Measuring fear of crime over the years : sundry methods muddle the validity -- Gender : the most consistent predictor of fear of crime -- How and why age, race/ethnicity, and socioeconomic status contribute to fear of crime -- The influence of contextual predictors on fear of crime : personal experience, indirect victimization, and community -- Consequences of fear of crime : physical, psychological, behavioral, and social effects -- Tying the findings together : suggestions for policy and future research on fear of crime.
"Fear of Crime in the United States: Causes, Consequences, and Contradictions examines the nature and extent of crime-related fear. The authors describe and evaluate key research findings in the specific areas of methodology; gender, age, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status; contextual predictors; and the consequences of fear of crime. They discuss the improvement of fear of crime measures over time; the consistent finding that women are more afraid of crime; the impact of age, race and ethnicity, and socioeconomic status on fear; and the importance of environmental factors (such as witnessing crime and perceptions of diversity, disorder, and decline) and indirect victimization (through acquaintances and the media) on fear. The book also describes the physical, psychological, behavioral, and social effects of fear of crime. In the end, the authors tie the findings together to suggest important policy and research implications from the wealth of available research"--Publisher website.

Thinking about bribery : neuroscience, moral cognition and the psychology of bribery
edited by Philip Nichols, Diana C. Robertson
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2017
Bribery is perhaps the most visible and most frequently studied form of corruption. Very little research, however, examines the individual decision to offer or accept a bribe, or how understanding that decision can help to effectively control bribery. This book brings together research by scholars from a variety of disciplines studying the mind and morality, who use their research to explain how and why decisions regarding participation in bribery are made. It first examines bribery from the perspective of brain structure, then approaches the decision to engage in bribery from a cognitive perspective. It examines the psychological costs imposed on a person who engages in bribery, and studies societal and organizational norms and their impact on bribery. This is an ideal read for scholars and other interested persons studying business ethics, bribery and corruption, corruption control, and the applications of neuroscience in a business environment.

The Luso-anarchist reader : the origins of anarchism in Portugal and Brazil
edited by Plínio de Góes, Jr
Charlotte, NC : Information Age Publishing, Inc.,

No book has ever presented a selection of writings of anarchists from the Portuguese-speaking world to an English-speaking audience. In The Luso-Anarchist Reader, writings by feminist radicals such as Maria Lacerda de Moura and anarchist communists such as Neno Vasco are made available in English for the first time. Researchers and activists interested in achieving a more comprehensive understanding of people's movements could certainly stand to benefit from exposure to these texts. Groups such as the Anarchist Federation of Rio de Janeiro are organizing in both urban and rural Brazil, sometimes working as part of a larger umbrella organization known as Brazilian Anarchist Coordination or CAB coordinating the efforts of various anarchist associations. Anarchists participated in the massive 2013 protests in Brazil, protests that brought together millions of people to speak out against corruption and for a variety of social causes. Anarchists are active in anti-austerity protests in Portugal against the European troika. Given the visibility of anarchism in the Portuguese-speaking world, Brazil in particular, the need to understand the roots of this anarchist tradition is especially salient. Anarchism in the Portuguese-speaking world during the early twentieth century brought together immigrants, people of African and indigenous descent, and feminists to forge a solidarity-based alliance for change. The young anarchist activists questioning the status quo today stand on ground seeded by the hard work of their predecessors. --
