of Afghan or Pakistani women? How do readers respond when they are presented with commentary on the drinking of “tea” that is then sutured into complex neo-liberal humanitarian “rescue” dispositifs that are used to justify military humanitarian interventionism? At first glance, one might think that Mortenson, a veteran turned writer, might simply be a lucky celebrity who happened to write a book during wartime that resonated with American audiences who were starving for good news during the GWOT.

influx of immigrants adding markedly to the population, there was another change in the population at large that also frames much of this period in American history. The Great Migration was a major shift in the African-American population from the South to the North early in the 20th century as discussed earlier in Chapter 4 (described by Wilkerson, 2010). About six million people moved to Northern industrial cities like Detroit (as described by Kevin Boyle, 2004) in search of work and better lives. For women, the drive to earn the right to vote reached its apex with

Australia and remote communities in many parts of the world. A Pew Internet survey of people over 18 years of age in the US in 2006 found that the disparity in internet access of white and black Americans narrowed only slightly in the previous decade (Pavlik, 2008, p. 58). At the end of that decade (i.e., the late 1990s), Tom Novak and Donna Hoffman (1998) reported that only 29 per cent of African Americans had a computer at home, compared with 44.2 per cent of white Americans. Nevertheless, as reported in the introduction, the technological digital divide is closing

nihonjinron (discourses on Japaneseness) writers who likewise trumpet the incomprehensibility, uniqueness and superiority of Japanese culture. Further, just as Mori’s curatorial authorities resettle Aida’s chaos into the nation-state container, the second point that can be made is that the artist’s alleged disruption of bourgeois prudery no longer subverts. Whereas cuteness and sexuality embraced by young women and girls, even when shown ironically through male gazes such as Aida’s, may have constituted acts of rebellion against conformity and repression decades ago, today

Junction Farm, generates discussion about the role of identity in food production. For example, why are most celebrity chefs male, while the home kitchen has been traditionally a female space? Why are the people performing manual labor in American agriculture mostly brown-skinned, born abroad, sometimes undocumented, and often persecuted for their labor and mere presence? Visiting Helsing Junction, a women-owned farm, puts a face on gender and identity issues when we meet the owners, discuss their fair labor practices, and ask what distinguishes their farm from large

functions of the central nervous system. The brain is like a phonograph. 3 In modern literature, women turn into celluloid and men into typewriters, and gramophones and radios influence turning women into prostitutes and men into poets. 4 All of these are due to an essential, technologically induced blindness. Circa 1900 several blindnesses—of the writer, of writing, of script—come together to guarantee an elementary blindness: the blind spot of the writing act. Instead of the play between Man the sign-setter and the writing surface, the philosopher as stylus and the
