About this Item: Seagull Books, 2009. Softcover. Condition: New. First edition. The two stories in this collection, `Statue` (Murti) and The Fairy Tale of Mohanpur` (Mohanpurer Rupkatha), are touching, poignant tales, in both of which the Protagonists are old women. In the first, a tragic, forbidden love returns to haunt Dulali, now an old woman pre-occupied only with filling her stomach and surviving from day to day. In the second, Andi loses her eyes through a combination of poverty, societal indifference and governmental apathy, even as she persists in her belief in fairy tale solutions. Mahasweta Devi is at her most tender in sensitive, delicately-drawn portraits of these two old women, although her trenchant pen is as ruthless as ever in delineating the socio-economic oppression within which they are forced to survive. Though extremely readable as moving stories for the fiction lover, they also yield layers of deeper significance upon closer reading. As translator Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak says : `Here in this text, you`ll find what Kamala Visweswaran has called `woman as subaltern` - the first story - and `subaltern women` - the second. In my way of leading there is here a solid critique of nationalism as an end in itself - and a loving critique of how male-gendered nationalism can solve a young man`s crisis; and, of course, a very strong critique of the failure of decolonization in the second story. `The realization that as time passes, for a woman, the ideology of "love" remains a memory but acknowledges defeat in the hands of hunger is an exquisite aporia in the first story; almost between species-life and species-being. And in the second, the extraordinary resourcefulness of this village community of women and the guileless courage and simplicity of Andi, her relationship with her eldest daughter-in-law and so on, are again a responsible narrative that offers a critique no less powerful than a merely reasonable one. How tellingly Devi outlines the limits of mere goodwill! Indeed, I`m always amazed by the theoretical delicacy of Mahasweta`s stories. The aporias between gendering on the one hand (`feudal`-transitional, and subaltern), and the ideology of national liberation (as tragedy and as farce) are also worth contemplating.` Printed Pages: 110.

About this Item: Seagull Books Pvt.Ltd. Paperback. Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Old Women, Mahasweta Devi, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, Mahasweta Devi is one of India's foremost literary figures. Mother of 1084 is one of her most widely read works, written during the height of the Naxalite agitation - a militant communist uprising that was brutally repressed by the Indian government and led to the widespread murder of young rebels across Bengal. This novel focuses on the trauma of a mother who awakens one morning to the shattering news that her son is lying dead in the morgue and her struggle to understand his decision to be a Naxalite. Breast Stories is a collection of short fiction about the breast as more than a symbol of beauty, eroticism, or motherhood, but as a harsh indictment of an exploitative social system and a weapon of resistance. At a time when violence towards women in India has escalated exponentially, Devi exposes the inherently vicious systems in Indian society. Old Women tells the touching, poignant tales of two timeworn women - Dulali, a widow since childhood, who is now an old woman preoccupied only with day-to-day survival, and Andi, who loses her eyesight due to a combination of poverty, societal indifference, and government apathy. All three volumes, written in Devi's hard-hitting yet sensitive prose, are significant milestones in India's feminist literary landscape. Seller Inventory # B9788170461449

About this Item: Polity Press, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Gayatri Chakravorty Spivaks seminal contribution to contemporary thought defies disciplinary boundaries. From her early translations of Derrida to her subsequent engagement with Marxism, feminism and postcolonial studies and her recent work on human rights, the war on terror and globalization, she has proved to be one of the most vital of present-day thinkers. In this book Stephen Morton offers a wide-ranging introduction to and critique of Spivaks work. He examines her engagements with philosophers and other thinkers from Kant to Paul de Man, feminists from Cixous to Helie-Lucas and literary texts by Charlotte Bronte, J. M. Coetzee, Mahasweta Devi and Jean Rhys. Spivaks thought is also situated in relation to subaltern studies. Throughout the book, Morton interrogates the materialist basis of Spivaks thought and demonstrates the ethical and political commitment which lies at the heart of her work. Stephen Morton provides an ideal introduction to the work of this complex and increasingly important thinker. Seller Inventory # AAH9780745632858

About this Item: Walther König Jun 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Die documenta wird 2017 zum ersten Mal in ihrer Geschichte parallel an zwei Orten stattfinden: in Athen sowie in Kassel, der Heimstadt der Ausstellung seit 1955. Bis zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung wird das 2012 in Athen gegründete Magazin South as a State of Mind in vier Sonderausgaben erscheinen, herausgegeben von Quinn Latimer, Chefredakteurin der Publikationen, und Adam Szymczyk, Künstlerischer Leiter der documenta 14. Das Schreiben und Publizieren in all seinen Formen ist integraler Bestandteil der documenta 14, und das Magazin steht für diesen Prozess. South as a State of Mind ist ein Ort der Recherche, Kritik, Kunst und Literatur, der die Arbeit an der Ausstellung begleitet und mit Essays, Gesprächen, Gedichten, literarischen Texten und visuellen Projekten von Künstlern, Dichtern, Wissenschaftlern, Architekten und Filmemachern dazu beiträgt, ihre Anliegen zu definieren und zu rahmen. Während das erste Heft Formen und Figuren von Entortung und Enteignung sowie die darin aufzuspürenden Praktiken des Widerstands untersuchte, beschäftigt sich die zweite Ausgabe mit rätselhafteren Sujets: Schweigen und Masken. Die Beiträge von Naman Ahuja, Andreas Angelidakis, María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Barbara Casavecchia, Mariana Castillo Deball, Clémentine Deliss, Mahasweta Devi, Stathis Gourgouris, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak und anderen fokussieren auf Themen wie Klang und Gender, Herkunft und Restitution, Stummstellung von Widerstand, künstlerische Verweigerung sowie Maskierungen von Identität. Bände 3 und 4 des Magazins werden sich Ideen von Sprache und Ökologie, Kolonialität und Neoklassizismus sowie dem Verhältnis zwischen pädagogischen, performativen und politischen Prozessen widmen. 228 pp. Englisch.

About this Item: Ohio State University Press, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Displacement and the Somatics of Postcolonial Culture is Douglas Robinson s study of postcolonial affect-specifically, of the breakdown of the normative (regulatory) circulation of affect in the refugee experience and the colonial encounter, the restructuring of that regulatory circulation in colonization, and the persistence of that restructuring in decolonization and intergenerational trauma. Robinson defines somatics as a cultural construction of reality and identity through the regulatory circulation of evaluative affect. This book is divided into three essays covering the refugee experience, colonization and decolonization, and intergenerational trauma. Each essay contains a review of empirical studies of its main topic, a study of literary representations of that topic, and a study of postcolonial theoretical spins. The literary representations in the refugee essay are a novel and short story by the Haitian writer Edwidge Danticat; in the colonization essay a short film by Javier Fesser and a novella by Mahasweta Devi (translated by Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak); and in the intergenerational trauma essay novels by James Welch and Toni Morrison and a short story by Percival Everett. The first essay s theoretical spins include Deleuze and Guattari on nomad thought and Iain Chambers on migrancy; the second s, Nietzsche s Genealogy of Morals and theories of postcolonial affect in Bhabha and Spivak; the third s, work on historical trauma by Cathy Caruth and Dominic LaCapra.

About this Item: Walther König Jun 2016, 2016. Taschenbuch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Die documenta wird 2017 zum ersten Mal in ihrer Geschichte parallel an zwei Orten stattfinden: in Athen sowie in Kassel, der Heimstadt der Ausstellung seit 1955. Bis zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung wird das 2012 in Athen gegründete Magazin South as a State of Mind in vier Sonderausgaben erscheinen, herausgegeben von Quinn Latimer, Chefredakteurin der Publikationen, und Adam Szymczyk, Künstlerischer Leiter der documenta 14. Das Schreiben und Publizieren in all seinen Formen ist integraler Bestandteil der documenta 14, und das Magazin steht für diesen Prozess. South as a State of Mind ist ein Ort der Recherche, Kritik, Kunst und Literatur, der die Arbeit an der Ausstellung begleitet und mit Essays, Gesprächen, Gedichten, literarischen Texten und visuellen Projekten von Künstlern, Dichtern, Wissenschaftlern, Architekten und Filmemachern dazu beiträgt, ihre Anliegen zu definieren und zu rahmen. Während das erste Heft Formen und Figuren von Entortung und Enteignung sowie die darin aufzuspürenden Praktiken des Widerstands untersuchte, beschäftigt sich die zweite Ausgabe mit rätselhafteren Sujets: Schweigen und Masken. Die Beiträge von Naman Ahuja, Andreas Angelidakis, María Magdalena Campos-Pons, Barbara Casavecchia, Mariana Castillo Deball, Clémentine Deliss, Mahasweta Devi, Stathis Gourgouris, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak und anderen fokussieren auf Themen wie Klang und Gender, Herkunft und Restitution, Stummstellung von Widerstand, künstlerische Verweigerung sowie Maskierungen von Identität. Bände 3 und 4 des Magazins werden sich Ideen von Sprache und Ökologie, Kolonialität und Neoklassizismus sowie dem Verhältnis zwischen pädagogischen, performativen und politischen Prozessen widmen. 228 pp. Englisch.

Imaginary Maps presents three stories from noted Bengali writer Mahasweta Devi in conjunction with readings of these tales by famed cultural and literary critic, Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak.

At once delicate and violent, Devi s stories map the experiences of the tribals and tribal life under decolonization. In The Hunt, Douloti the Bountiful and the deftly wrought allegory of tribal agony Pterodactyl, Pirtha, and Puran Sahay, Ms. Devi links the specific fate of tribals in India to that of marginalized peoples everywhere.
