Bringing together key writings on art, film, architecture, popular culture, new media and other visual fields, this key reader combines classic texts by leading feminist thinkers with six previously unpublished polemical new pieces. It explores how issues of race, class, nationality and sexuality, enter into debates about feminism, and includes work by feminist critics, artists and activists. Articles are grouped into six thematic sections: * representation * difference * disciplines/strategies * mass culture/media interventions * the body * technology. A valuable reference for students of visual culture and gender studies, this is both a framework within which to understand the shifts in feminist thinking in visual studies and an overview of the most significant feminist theories in this area.

Auch seinen fünften Geburtstag feiert Jack in Raum. Raum hat eine immer verschlossene Tür, ein Oberlicht und ist 12 Quadratmeter groß. Dort lebt der Kleine mit seiner Mutter. Dort wurde er auch geboren. Jack liebt es fernzusehen, denn da sieht er seine »Freunde«, die Cartoonfiguren. Aber er weiß, dass die Dinge hinter der Mattscheibe nicht echt sind – echt sind nur Ma, er und die Dinge in Raum. Bis der Tag kommt, an dem Ma ihm erklärt, dass es doch eine Welt da draußen gibt und dass sie versuchen müssen, aus Raum zu fliehen ... »Nerven zerreißend und fesselnd. ›Raum‹ – angeregt von der wahren Geschichte über Elisabeth Fritzl, eingesperrt mit ihren Kindern von ihrem Vater – ist die Geschichte einer Mutter und ihres Sohnes, deren Liebe sie das Unglaubliche überleben lässt.« Psychologies ZUM SPECIAL

Visuelle Kultur ist zu einem wichtigen interdisziplinären Forschungsfeld geworden. Die Dominanz der Bilder und ihre globale Zirkulation in der Gegenwart haben in der Wissenschaft zu einer Hinwendung zum Bildlichen geführt, dessen Bedeutung und Relevanz herausgestellt und analysiert wird. Erforscht wird vor allem die kulturelle Konstruktion des Visuellen. Wie wird durch kulturelle Bildpraxen Bedeutung in einer zunehmend visuellen Welt geschaffen und übermittelt? Vor diesem Hintergrund versammelt der vorliegende Band unterschiedliche Zugänge, die an verschiedenen Medien zeigen, wie komplex das Verhältnis von Wirklichkeit und visueller Vermittlung und wie zentral es für das Verständnis unserer Welt ist.

The Encyclopedia of Women in World History captures the experiences of women throughout world history in a comprehensive, 4-volume work. Although there has been extensive research on women in history by region, no text or reference work has comprehensively covered the role women have played throughout world history.The past thirty years have seen an explosion of research and effort to present the experiences and contributions of women not only in the Western world but across the globe. Historians have investigated womens daily lives in virtually every region and have researched the leadership roles women have filled across time and region. They have found and demonstrated that there is virtually no historical, social, or demographic change in which women have not been involved and by which their lives have not been affected. The Oxford Encyclopedia of Women in World History benefits greatly from these efforts and experiences, and illuminates how women worldwide have influenced and been influenced by these historical, social, and demographic changes.The Encyclopedia contains over 1,250 signed articles arranged in an A-Z format for ease of use. The entries cover six main areas: biographies; geography and history; comparative culture and society, including adoption, abortion, performing arts; organizations and movements, such as the Egyptian Uprising, and the Paris Commune; womens and gender studies; and topics in world history that include slave trade, globalization, and disease. With its rich and insightful entries by leading scholars and experts, this reference work is sure to be a valued, go-to resource for scholars, college and high school students, and general readers alike.

Zum anderen strebt der Band an, Potenziale einer verbindenden Perspektive auf 'neue' und 'alte' Konzeptionen von Materialität und Materialismen innerhalb feministischer Theorien und Praxen kritisch auszuloten.

Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz-a witty, intellectually formidable, and prolific author-stands as an icon of women's early writing and of colonial New Spain. Living in the capital city of seventeenth-century Mexico, she was located in the center of her world, but, as a self-taught, illegitimate, Creole woman and as a nun subject to the authority of male religious leaders, she was also socially marginal within that world. Like other early modern women she took up the pen to challenge gendered norms of the time. In style and content her works, which draw on baroque stylistics, classical rhetoric, and the natural sciences, are key documents in the development of Western literature.

This unique collection frames the classic debates on objects and aims to generate new ones by reshaping the ways in which the object can be taught and studied, from a wide variety of disciplines and fields. The Object Reader elucidates objects in many of their diverse roles, dynamics and capacities. Precisely because the dedicated study of objects does not reside neatly within a single discipline, this collection is comprised of numerous academic fields. The selected writings are drawn from from anthropology, art history, classical studies, critical theory, cultural studies, digital media, design history, disability studies, feminism, film and television studies, history, philosophy, psychoanalysis, social studies of science and technology, religious studies and visual culture. The collection, composed of twentieth and twenty-first century writing also seeks to make its own contribution through original work, in the form of twenty-five short 'object lessons' commissioned specifically for this project. These new and innovative studies from key writers across a range of disciplines will enable students to look upon their surroundings with trained eyes to search out their own 'object studies'.

Sight Unseen reveals the cultural and biological realities of race, gender, and sexual orientation from the perspective of the blind. Through ten case studies and dozens of interviews, Ellyn Kaschak taps directly into the phenomenology of race, gender, and sexual orientation among blind individuals, along with the everyday epistemology of vision. Kaschak's work reveals not only how the blind create systems of meaning out of cultural norms but also how cultural norms inform our conscious and unconscious interactions with others regardless of our physical ability to see.
