Globally today, television, film and the internet comprise the principal sources of cultural consumption and engagement. Despite this, these areas have not featured strongly in the cultural study of disability. This book series will provide the first specific outlet for international scholars of disability to present their work on these topics.

The series will build a body of work that brings together critical analysis of disability and impairments in media and culture. The series expands the work currently undertaken in literary studies on disability by using media and cultural theory to understand the place of disability and impairment in a range of media and cultural forms.

The series encourages the development of work on disabled people in the media, within the media industries and in the wider cultural sphere. Whilst film and television analysis will be central to this series, we also encourage work on disability in other media, including journalism, radio, the internet and gaming.

We welcome proposals from media studies: narrative constructions of disability; technical aspects of media production; disability, the economy and society; the impact of social media and gaming on disabled identities; and the role of architecture and image. Cultural studies are also encouraged: the uses of disabled and chronically ill bodies, ‘cripping culture’, corporeal projections in culture, intersectional identities, advertising, and the uses of cultural theory in furthering understandings of ableism and disablism.

All proposals and manuscripts will be rigorously peer reviewed. The language of publication is English, although we welcome submissions from around the world and on topics that may take as their focus non-English media. We welcome new proposals for monographs and edited collections.

Economía del pájaro en tiempos de guerra

Comunicación y disenso en la poesía de Eduardo Milán

Series:

Pablo López Carballo

La obra de Eduardo Milán se ha convertido, en los últimos años, en uno de los referentes indiscutibles a la hora de hablar de poesía en español. Su grado de difusión e influencia, a ambos lados del Atlántico, explica que el estudio de la propuesta estética de este autor ocupe un lugar destacado en las investigaciones académicas sobre el hecho poético. En este contexto, el presente libro tiene como principal objetivo proponer un acercamiento crítico a su obra para tratar de comprender el alcance y relevancia de la misma. Ya desde las primeras aproximaciones a su obra, ha quedado patente el hecho de que la escritura de Eduardo Milán trabaja desde la conciencia del abismo que separa el lenguaje y la realidad. Por ello, el primer interrogante al que debe hacerse frente es el de cómo aborda el poeta tal abismo, para así lograr dar cuenta de las problemáticas que ello genera en su poesía. En segundo lugar, ha sido necesario buscar ejes analíticos que permitieran mostrar esos conflictos de modo sistemático. Por esto mismo, la comunicación y el disenso, entendidos por el poeta de modo particular, son los dos núcleos principales del acercamiento. La estructuración planteada aquí no es un punto de partida, sino más bien un camino recorrido, una estructura flexible, abierta e inclusiva. En efecto, en la tarea de abordar una obra que ya inicialmente presenta una clara ausencia de tematización explícita, inestabilidad formal y disposición al cambio se ha hecho indispensable tomar una dirección que permita establecer una pauta de estudio y organización de los resultados.

Expériences de traduction

Penser la traduction à travers ses pratiques

Series:

Edited by Lucia Quaquarelli, Dorothée Cailleux and Chiara Denti

La traduction est un exercice et une expérience : l’exercice et l’expérience non tant d’un passage ou d’un transfert d’une langue à une autre, mais d’un rapport, d’une relation, d’une vie aux frontières. Observer la « traduction en action », l’interroger à partir de ses pratiques et de ses contraintes permet d’en mesurer la portée créative, historique et située, et d’en dévoiler la dimension éminemment politique.

Cet ouvrage collectif entend témoigner d’une approche de la traduction qui ne sépare pas la théorie de la pratique mais fait au contraire apparaître leur imbrication. Aussi, chaque étude de l’ouvrage s’appuie-t-elle sur l’analyse de cas concrets, pour questionner et repenser des notions telles que fidélité, original, transparence, lisibilité, etc.

This series seeks to publish critical and nuanced scholarship in the field of Black European Studies. Moving beyond and building on the Black Atlantic approach, books in this series will underscore the existence, diversity and evolution of Black Europe. They will provide historical, intersectional and interdisciplinary perspectives on how Black diasporic peoples have reconfigured the boundaries of Black identity making, claim making and politics; created counterdiscourses and counterpublics on race, colonialism, postcolonialism and racism; and forged transnational connections and solidarities across Europe and the globe. The series will also illustrate the ways that Black European diasporic peoples have employed intellectual, socio-political, artistic/cultural, affective, digital and pedagogical work to aid their communities and causes, challenge their exclusion and cultivate ties with their allies, thus gaining recognition in their societies and beyond.

Representing the field’s dynamic growth methodologically, geographically and culturally, the series will also collectively interrogate notions of Blackness, Black diasporic culture and Europeanness while also challenging the boundaries of Europe. Books in the series will critically examine how race and ethnicity intersect with the themes of gender, nationality, class, religion, politics, kinship, sexuality, affect and the transnational, offering comparative and international perspectives. One of the main goals of the series is to introduce and produce rigorous academic research that connects not only with individuals in academia but also with a broader public.

Areas of interest:

  • Social movements
  • Racial discourses and politics
  • Empire, slavery and colonialism
  • Decolonialization and postcolonialism
  • Gender, sexuality and intersectionality
  • Black activism (in all its forms)
  • Racial and political violence and surveillance
  • Racial constructions
  • Diasporic practices
  • Race and racialization in the ancient, medieval, modern and contemporary eras
  • Identity, representation and cultural productions (music, art, literature, etc.)
  • Memory
  • Migration and immigration
  • Citizenship
  • State building and diplomacy
  • Nations and nationalisms

All proposals and manuscripts will be rigorously peer reviewed. The language of publication is English. We welcome new proposals for monographs and edited collections.

“No One Will Do This For Us”.

The Linguistic and Cultural Practices of Young Activists Representing European Linguistic Minorities

Series:

Nicole Dołowy-Rybińska

This book presents a portrait of actively engaged young people representing four linguistic minorities in Europe: the Kashubs (in Poland), the Upper Sorbs (in Germany), the Bretons (in France), and the Welsh (in the United Kingdom). In numerous statements cited in the book, drawn from interviews conducted by the author, young people speak for themselves and serve as guides to their minority cultures. They draw attention to the difficulties and challenges they encounter in their day-to-day life and activism. Based on their statements, the book examines the sociolinguistic situation of each of the minorities, the prevailing linguistic ideologies and the role of minority education; it also distinguishes different types of minority language speakers. The analysis focuses on the cultural and identity-forming practices of young people in the context of different forms of community life and their different pathways to becoming engaged representing their cultures and languages.

Realizing Nonviolent Resilience

Neoliberalism, Societal Trauma, and Marginalized Voice

Series:

Edited by Jerry T. Lawler and Jeremy Rinker

Current neoliberal social and economic realities have had enormous impacts on the abilities of oppressed groups and marginalized communities to realize resistance and innate resiliencies. How does the ubiquity of neoliberal economic forces exacerbate traumatized populations’ helplessness, and, thereby, influence their inability to grapple with their oppressors and engage in fruitful change solutions? This edited volume asks how nonviolent conflict practitioners might intervene to ‘treat’ traumatized, and often marginalized, populations suspended in the predicament of ‘acting in’ and ‘acting out’ their collective traumas. Treating trauma is an integral aspect of successful peacebuilding work. This work aims to explore the role of trauma in peacebuilding and illuminate the ways that neoliberal marginalization impacts trauma-informed peace work.

Swiss Maid

Verborgene Kräfte und Schätze in der Erfolgsgeschichte der Schweiz

Margrit V. Zinggeler

Swiss Maid: Verborgene Kräfte und Schätze in der Erfolgsgeschichte der Schweiz untersucht die Arbeit und Leistungen von einfachen Frauen und wie sie die Schweiz mitgestaltet haben. Frauen waren tätig in religiösen Institutionen, in der Hauswirtschaft, auf Bauernhöfen, im Handwerk und Gewerbe, in der Mädchenbildung, im Pflegebereich, in der Fürsorge, im Militär, in der Industrie und im Dienstleistungssektor. Obwohl jüdisch-christliche Traditionen die Frauen in untergeordneten Rollen einschlossen, entwickelten die Frauen ihre eigenen Stärken und trugen zur erfolgreichen Volkswirtschaft des Landes bei. Allerdings wurde die Arbeit dieser Frauen nicht in die Staatsbuchhaltung aufgenommen und in Produktivitätsmodellen bewertet und anerkannt. In diesem Buch werden qualitative und quantitative Daten vorgestellt, die zur Ermittlung von sozioökonomischen Aussagen erforderlich sind. Ausbildung, Arbeitsteilung und soziale Strukturen vergangener Jahrhunderte werden in Bezug auf die Produktivität von Frauen ebenso diskutiert wie die sozialen Veränderungen in jüngerer Zeit. Multifaktor-Produktivitätskonzepte und soziale Wohlstandsmessungen beleuchten den enormen Wert der Arbeit von Frauen. Porträts von wegweisenden und gewöhnlichen Frauen zeugen von ihrem unerschrockenen Mut und ihren außergewöhnlichen Beiträgen, ohne die die Marke „Swiss Made" und das Image der Schweiz nicht erfolgreich wären. Nur wenn wir die Frauen-einschließende Geschichte kennen, verstehen wir die Gegenwart. Dieses Buch schließt die Lücke im Schweizer Erfolgsmodell.

The Unknown Christ of Christianity

A Biblical Study of Panikkar’s Early Theology

Series:

Enrico Beltramini

Since its publication in 1964, The Unknown Christ of Hinduism has been singled out for praise as the quintessential example of Raimon Panikkar’s engagement with theology of religions. Controversies over the real meaning of the title and the author’s remark that Christ is unknown to Hindus and a fortiori to Christians have been waged among generations of scholars. Refusing to isolate Panikkar’s concerns with the Hindu-Christian dialogue from much larger theological and biblical debates occurring in the period before and during the Vatican Council II, this book suggests that the unknown Christ of Christianity is the plastic representation of an insufficient degree of universality of the Church. Rejecting traditional interpretations that identify a gulf between the first and the second edition of The Unknown, this book argues for a continuity in Raimon Panikkar’s thought.
