Melodramatic Imperial Writing
From the Sepoy Rebellion to Cecil Rhodes
Melodrama is often seen as a blunt aesthetic tool tainted by its reliance on improbable situations, moral binaries, and overwhelming emotion, features that made it a likely ingredient of British imperial propaganda during the late nineteenth century.
Research as More Than Extraction
Knowledge Production and Gender-Based Violence in African Societies
This book contributes to an increasingly significant interdisciplinary field that focuses on ethics, methods, and the politics of gender-based violence. Its contributors, the majority of whom are based in Africa, offer concrete examples of how to undertake responsible research in African contexts.
The Coming Sixth World of Consciousness
In Mexico Mystique Frank Waters draws us deeply into the ancient but still-living myths of Mexico. To reveal their hidden meanings and their powerful symbolism, he brings to bear his gift for intuitive imagination as well as a broad knowledge of anthropology, Jungian psychology, astrology, and Eastern and esoteric religions.
A Country of Defiance
Mapping the Casamance in Senegal
This analysis of culture and nationalism in the Casamance—home of the longest-running conflict on the African continent—considers colonialism, cartography, agriculture, religion, forests, education, and sports history to explain and analyze the complex identities that have driven the separatist movement as well as the Senegalese nation.
A History of Kitawala in Congo
In this conceptual history, Nicole Eggers argues that practitioners of the Congolese religious movement Kitawala can be understood as intellectuals, innovators, and vital participants in the construction and use of power. Eggers also explores the relationship between healing and violence in their frequently gendered central African manifestations.
