But if doormen are unusually familiar with their tenants, they are also socially very distant. This book untangles this unusual dynamic to reveal the m...any ways tenants and doormen negotiate their complex relationship.

              Soviet Signoras: Personal and Collective Transformations in Eastern European Migration

              Soviet Signoras: Personal and Collective Transformations in Eastern European Migration (Hardback)

              Across the Western world, the air is filled with talk of immigration. The changes brought by immigration have triggered a renewed fervor for isolationism able to shutter political traditions and party systems. So often absent from these conversations on migration are however the ...actual stories and experiences of the migrants themselves. In fact, migration does not simply transport people. It also changes them deeply. Enter Martina Cvajner's Soviet Signoras, a far-reaching ethnographic study of two decades in the lives of women who migrated to northern Italy from several former Soviet republics. Cvajner details the personal and collective changes brought about by the experience of migration for these women: from the first hours arriving in a new country with no friends, relatives, or existing support networks, to later remaking themselves for their new environment. In response to their traumatic displacement, the women of Soviet Signoras--nearly all of whom found work in their new Western homes as elder care givers--refashioned themselves in highly sexualized, materialistic, and intentionally conspicuous ways. Cvajner's focus on overt sexuality and materialism is far from sensationalist, though. By zeroing in on these elements of personal identity, she reveals previously unexplored sides of the social psychology of migration, coloring our contemporary discussion with complex shades of humanity.

              Inward: Vipassana Meditation and the Embodiment of the Self

              Inward: Vipassana Meditation and the Embodiment of the Self (Hardback)

              Western society has never been more interested in interiority. Indeed, it seems more and more people are deliberately looking inward--toward the mind, the body, or both. Michal Pagis's Inward focuses on one increasingly popular channel for the introverted gaze: vipassana meditati...on, which has spread from Burma to over forty countries and counting. Pagis turns our attention not only to the practice of vipassana but to the communities that have sprung up around it, lacing her account with vivid anecdotes and personal stories. Inward is also a social history of the westward diffusion of Eastern religious practices spurred on by the lingering effects of the British colonial presence in India. At the same time, Pagis asks knotty questions about what happens when we continually turn inward, investigating the complex relations between physical selves, emotional selves, and our larger social worlds. As a whole, her book sheds new light on evergreen topics such as globalization, social psychology, and the place of the human body in the enduring process of self-awareness.
