              Entanglements of Empire: Missionaries, Maori, and the Question of the Body (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The first Protestant mission was established in New Zealand in 1814, initiating complex political, cultural, and economic entanglements with Maori. Tony Ballantyne shows how interest in missionary Christianity among influential Maori chiefs had far-reaching consequences for both ...groups. Deftly reconstructing cross-cultural translations and struggles over such concepts and practices as civilization, work, time and space, and gender, he identifies the physical body as the most contentious site of cultural engagement, with Maori and missionaries struggling over hygiene, tattooing, clothing, and sexual morality. Entanglements of Empire is particularly concerned with how, as a result of their encounters in the classroom, chapel, kitchen, and farmyard, Maori and the English mutually influenced each other's worldviews. Concluding in 1840 with New Zealand's formal colonization, this book offers an important contribution to debates over religion and empire.

              Collateral Afterworlds: Sociality Besides Redemption (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Wool, Zoe H.; Livingston, Julie

              This issue moves beyond the binary of life and death to explore how the gray areas in between precarious life, slow death call into question assumptions about the social in social theory. In these collateral afterworlds, where the line between life and death is blurred, the presu...med attachments of sociality to life and solitude to death are no longer reliable. The contributors focus on the daily experiences of enduring a difficult present unhinged from any redeeming future, addressing topics such as drug treatment centers in Mexico City, solitary death in Japan, Inuit colonial violence, human regard for animal life in India, and intimacies forged between grievously wounded soldiers. Engaging history, film, ethics, and poetics, the contributors explore the modes of intimacy, obligation, and ethical investment that arise in these spaces. Contributors. Anne Alison, Naisargi N. Dave, Angela Garcia, Fady Joudah, Julie Livingston, Elizabeth Povinelli, Solmaz Sharif, Lisa Stevenson, Zoe Wool

              Area Impossible: The Geopolitics of Queer Studies
               

              Area Impossible: The Geopolitics of Queer Studies (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Edited by Arondekar, Anjali; Patel, Geeta H.

              Staging a much-needed conversation between two often-segregated fields, this issue addresses the promising future of queer and area studies as collaborative formations. Within queer studies, the turn to geopolitics has challenged the field's logics of time, space, and culture, wh...ich have routinely been rooted in the United States. For area studies, the focus on diaspora, forced migration, and other transnational trajectories has unmoored the geopolitical from the stability of nations as organizing concepts. The contributors to this issue seek to imagine and broker conversations between the two fields in which area becomes the form through which epistemologies of empire and market are critiqued. Histories of debt bondage; sexuality and indentured labor; Afro pessimism in African studies; trans theater facing obdurate transits; religion and the politics of Dalit modernity; the biopolitics of maiming: these are some of the conduits through which the authors approach a queer geopolitics.Contributors: Ashley Currier, Aliyah Khan, Keguro Macharia, Therese Migraine-George, Maya Mikdashi, Jasbir Puar, Lucinda Ramberg, Neferti Tadiar, Diana Taylor, Ronaldo Wilson

              This issue examines the legacy of Nazi-looted art in light of the 2012 discovery of the famous Hildebrand Gurlitt collection of stolen artwork in Germany. When the German government declassified the case almost two years later, the resulting scandal raised fundamental questions a...bout the role of art dealers in the Third Reich, the mechanics of the Nazi black market for artwork, the shortcomings of postwar denazification, the failure of courts and governments to adjudicate stolen artwork claims, and the unwillingness of museums to determine the provenance of thousands of looted pieces of art. The contributors explore the continuities of art dealerships and auction houses from the Nazi period to the Federal Republic and take stock of the present political and cultural debate over the handling of this artwork.
