Abstract

Most members of the Stolen Generations had white fathers or grandfathers. Who were these white men? This book analyses the stories of white fathers, men who were positioned as key players in the plans to assimilate Aboriginal people by ‘breeding out the colour’. The policy was an cruel failure. It conflated skin colour with culture and assumed that Aboriginal women and their children would acquiesce to produce ‘future whites’. It also assumed that white men would comply as ready appendages, administering ‘whiteness’ through marriage or white sperm. This book attempts to put textual flesh on the bodies of these white fathers, and in doing so, builds on and complicates the view of white fathers in this history, and the histories of whiteness to which they are biopolitically related.

Abstract

Los inmigrantes limítrofes, los afrodescendientes y los pueblos indígenas, entre otros, despliegan sus palabras y reflexiones sobre su propia memoria.

Abstract

Canada is regularly presented as a country where liberalism has ensured freedom and equality for all. Yet with the expansion of settlers into the First Nations territories that became southern Alberta and BC, liberalism proved to be an exclusionary rather than inclusionary force. Between 1877 and 1927, government officials, police officers, church representatives, ordinary settlers, and many others operated to exclude and reform Indigenous people. Presenting Anglo-Canadian liberal capitalist values and structures and interests as normal, natural, and beyond reproach devalued virtually every aspect of Indigenous cultures. This book explores the means used to facilitate and justify colonization, their effects on Indigenous economic, political, social, and spiritual lives, and how they were resisted.

Abstract

Transgender Identities: Towards a Social Analysis of Gender Diversity emerges from, and speaks to, recent sociological considerations of ‘transgender.’&#xD;The term ‘transgender’ denotes a range of gender experiences,&#xD;subjectivities and presentations that fall across, between or beyond stable&#xD;categories of ‘man’ and ‘woman.’ ‘Transgender’ includes gender identities&#xD;that have, more traditionally, been described as ‘transsexual,’1 and a diversity&#xD;of genders that call into question an assumed relationship between gender&#xD;identity and presentation and the ‘sexed’ body.&#xD;This introduction serves three purposes.

Abstract

En aquest volum del Grup d’Opinió de l’Observatori de Bioètica i Dret, coordinat per la Dra. María Casado i pel Dr. Antoni Vilà, s’analitzen els problemes bioètics específics que afronten les persones amb discapacitat, les quals pateixen un «dèficit de ciutadania» que sovint n’impedeix una plena participació en la vida social com a subjectes de ple dret i en igualtat de condicions. Per a analitzar la situació i presentar les propostes que han d’assegurar l’autonomia personal i la integració social d’aquestes persones, el Grup d’Opinió ha pres com a referència la Declaració Universal sobre Bioètica i Drets Humans de la Unesco (2005) i la Convenció sobre els drets de les persones amb discapacitat de l’ONU (2006), que coincideixen a tractar la discapacitat des de la perspectiva dels drets humans.

Abstract

Historiadores y antropólogos registran en este libro procesos históricos de formación de comunidades indígenas en la Patagonia. El objetivo de los artículos reunidos en esta compilación es observar la manera en que se redefinen, sobre el territorio, comunidades y colectivos mapuches y tehuelches a causa de las experiencias de arrinconamiento y desplazamiento constantes a las que esas comunidades fueron y son sometidas. Distintos tipos de relaciones y prácticas –parentesco, política, rituales– son enfocados en su relación con límites comunitarios que se abren a y de colectivos indígenas más amplios y se entraman regionalmente.

Abstract

"The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria are exceptional for the copresence among them of three religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, and the indigenous oriṣa religion. In this comparative study, at once historical and anthropological, Peel explores the intertwined character of the three religions and the dense imbrication of religion in all aspects of Yoruba history up to the present. For over 400 years, the Yoruba have straddled two geocultural spheres: one reaching north over the Sahara to the world of Islam, the other linking them to the Euro-American world via the Atlantic. These two external spheres were the source of contrasting cultural influences, notably those emanating from the world religions. However, the Yoruba not only imported Islam and Christianity but also exported their own oriṣa religion to the New World. Before the voluntary modern diaspora that has brought many Yoruba to Europe and the Americas, tens of thousands were sold as slaves in the New World, bringing with them the worship of the oriṣa. Peel offers deep insight into important contemporary themes such as religious conversion, new religious movements, relations between world religions, the conditions of religious violence, the transnational flows of contemporary religion, and the interplay between tradition and the demands of an ever-changing present. In the process, he makes a major theoretical contribution to the anthropology of world religions."

Abstract

Being young in Italy in times of crisis means living with a mood that oscillates between depression and euphoria. Rather than thinking about the future, which is not known in any way, it is useful to look for some satisfaction in an eternal present time. The Italian young people's lives are suspended, invisible, lost, delayed, resized. They are those of an indefinite youth.

Abstract

Esta publicación presenta siete investigaciones sobre los procesos de sometimiento e incorporación de los pueblos originarios de las regiones patagónica, pampeana y chaqueña por parte del Estado argentino. Los autores discuten sobre conceptos centrales como los de genocidio, terrorismo y violencia de Estado. No obstante, abordan al mismo tiempo la participación de la sociedad civil en la concentración, la deportación y la distribución de indígenas, así como la acción de los mismos pueblos originarios en dichos procesos. En este último sentido, el carácter etnográfico de las investigaciones posibilita la recuperación de la memoria social silenciada en las narrativas nacionalistas y da entidad individual al proceso histórico.
