Abstract

Examining the ways in which feminist and queer activists confront privilege through the use of intersectionality, this edited collection presents empirical case studies from around the world to consider how intersectionality has been taken up (or indeed contested) by activists in order to expose and resist privilege.The volume sets out three key ways in which intersectionality operates within feminist and queer movements: it is used as a collective identity, as a strategy for forming coalitions, and as a repertoire for inclusivity. The case studies presented in this book then evaluate the extent to which some, or all, of these types of intersectional activism are used to confront manifestations of privilege. Drawing upon a wide range of cases from across time and space, this volume explores the difficulties with which activists often grapple when it comes to translating the desire for intersectionality into a praxis which confronts privilege. Addressing inter-related and politically relevant questions concerning how we apply and theorise intersectionality in our studies of feminist and queer movements, this timely edited collection will be of interest to students and scholars from across the social sciences and humanities with an interest in gender and feminism, LGBT+ and queer studies, and social movement studies.

Abstract

Lampedusa in Hamburg: Im Mai 2013 gingen über 300 Migrant_innen auf Hamburgs Straßen, um ihre Rechte einzufordern und ihre zwangsweise Rückführung nach Italien zu verhindern. Ihr Protest versetzte die Stadt, ihre Bürger_innen, ihre Debatten und Grenzen in Bewegung. Die Protestierenden machten die europäische Migrationspolitik und ihr Scheitern sichtbar und stellten bestehende Konzepte von Bürgerschaft grundsätzlich infrage. Vor allem aber überraschten sie durch ihr Handeln als Bürger_innen Europas – ein Handeln, das in gängigen Bildern von leidenden, an den Rand gedrängten Migrant_innen nicht vorgesehen ist. Birgit Niess begleitet in dieser Ethnografie den Alltag der beginnenden Protestbewegung und stellt dabei immer wieder die Perspektive der Lampedusa in Hamburg-Mitglieder in den Vordergrund. Wie sah ihr Alltag in der Warteschleife aus? Welche Bündnisse und welche Brüche entstanden dort, wo sich die Protestbewegung und zivilgesellschaftliche Organisationen wie Kirchen und Gewerkschaften begegneten? Wie wurden hier Rechte verhandelt? Mit vielen Alltagserlebnissen, Begegnungen und Originaltönen zeichnet sie ein vielschichtiges, widersprüchliches Bild einer gleichermaßen dynamischen und brüchigen Bewegung, die sich eher mit Fragen als mit Antworten greifen lässt.

Abstract

Die protestantische Missionsbewegung war von einer ganzen Reihe von Initiativen, Veranstaltungen, Vereinen und Publikationen getragen. Missionsvereine, Nähkränzchen, Missionsstunden, Missionsblätter und nicht zuletzt zahllose Missionsfeste, auf denen häufig ein Missionar über seine Erfahrungen aus dem Missionsgebiet berichtete, trugen dazu bei, die Anliegen der Äußeren Mission bis in die letzten Winkel der ländlichen Gesellschaft hinein bekannt zu machen. Dennoch liegen über diese Seite der Äußeren Mission bisher kaum Forschungsarbeiten vor. Das vorliegende Buch greift dieses Desiderat auf und versucht beispielhaft an der Region um Göttingen in einer Verbindung diskursanalytischer und mikrohistorischer Ansätze zu rekonstruieren, wie sich die Unterstützung der Äußeren Mission genau gestaltete und welche Akteurinnen und Akteure sich für Mission interessierten und wie engagierten. Dabei steht die Frage im Vordergrund, welche Bedeutung diesen Initiativen in einer Verflechtungsgeschichte um 1900 als Transmissionsriemen für die Produktion von Bildern aus dem Außereuropäischen zukam. In der Unterstützung der Äußeren Mission, so soll gezeigt werden, verbanden sich lokale Identitätsdiskurse und religiöse Deutungsangebote, die »das Globale« im Lokalen strukturierten.

Abstract

This study presents the contemporary Islamic resurgence movement among young people in Bandung Indonesia, focusing on its emergence, development and routinisation. It traces various factors and conditions that contributed to the emergence of the movement. It also tries to explain how and why young people (students in particular) turn to Islam, and how the movement is organised and developed among students. Finally, it examines internal changes among various Islamic groups as responses to social, political and cultural changes.

Abstract

Across time and geography people have known the power of music for evoking the gods and acquiring spiritual insight. Whether arising as a textless chant by a single voice or a percussive auditory context for ritual dance, music in its various modes is a virtually ubiquitous companion to religious and spiritual practices. The apparently intangible, insubstantial nature of sound is one of the reasons why music has so effectively symbolized the mysterious and wholly other since the dawn of creation. Not only an accompaniment to one’s spiritual trek, musical compositions from the great oratorios of Handel to the soundtrack to the movie Lord of the Rings also serve as powerful metaphors and inspirations for that journey.

Abstract

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) is portrayed as cognitive and social disorders. Undoubtedly, impairments in communication and restricted-repetitive behaviors that now define the disorders have a profound impact on social interactions. But can we go beyond the descriptive, observational nature of this definition and objectively measure that amalgamate of motions and sensations that we call behavior?In this Research Topic we bring movement and its sensation to the forefront of autism research, diagnosis, and treatment. We gather researchers across disciplines with the unifying goal of recognizing movement and sensory disturbances as core symptoms of the disorder. We also hear confirmation from the perspective of autism self-advocates and parents. Those important sources of evidence along with the research presented in this topic demonstrate without a doubt that profound movement and sensory differences do exist in ASD and that they are quantifiable.The work presented in this Research Topic shows us that quantifiable differences in movements have a better chance than current observational techniques to help us uncover subtle solutions that the nervous system with autism has already spontaneously self-discovered and utilized in daily living. Where the naked eye would miss the unique subtleties that help each individual cope, instrumentation and fine kinematic analyses of motions help us uncover inherent capacities and predispositions of the person with autism. The work presented in this topic helps us better articulate through the voices of parents and self-advocates those sensory motor differences that current inventories could not possibly uncover. These differences are seldom perceived as they take place at timescales and frequencies that fall largely beneath our conscious awareness. To the person in the spectrum living with this disorder and to the caregiver creating accommodations to help the affected loved one, these subtleties are very familiar though. Indeed they are often used in clever ways to facilitate daily routines. We have waited much too long in science to listen to the very people that we are trying to define, understand and help.Being autism a social problem by definition, it is remarkable that not a single diagnosis inventory measures the dyadic social interaction that takes place between the examiner and the examinees. Indeed we have conceived the autistic person within a social context where we are incapable - by definition - of accepting those differences. The burden is rather placed on the affected person to whom much too often we refer to in the third person as “non-verbal, without intentionality, without empathy or emotions, without a theory of mind”, among other purely psychological guesses. It is then too easy and shockingly allowed to “reshape” that person, to mold that person to better conform to our social expectations and to extinguish “behaviors” that are socially unacceptable, even through the use of aversive punishing reinforcement techniques if need be. And yet none of those techniques have had a single shred of objective scientific evidence of their effectiveness. We have not objectively measured once, nor have we physiologically characterized once any of those perceived features that we so often use to observationally define what we may think the autistic phenotype may be. We have not properly quantified, beyond paper-and-pencil methods, the effectiveness of interventions in autism.

Abstract

En Inde, le terme de Dalit est revendiqué par ceux que l’on dénommait les Intouchables. Ils ont créé un mouvement d’émancipation qui connaît en ses marges d’;inquiétantes crispations. En témoigne l’engagement d’une revue qui s’est attribuée en 1981 le titre de Dalit Voice, la Voix des Dalit. Militant contre le système de castes et pour l’égalité statutaire, cette revue, influente au sein de la petite élite issue des basses castes, constitue un exemple remarquable de la dérive d’un discours de dominés glissant vers la haine de l’Autre, et vers un fantasme de domination.

Abstract

The women’s health movement shocked and scandalised when it burst into Australian politics in the early 1970s. It cast the light of day onto taboo subjects such as sexual assault, abortion and domestic violence, provoking outrage and condemnation. Some of the services women created for themselves were subjected to police raids; sex education material was branded ‘indecent’. Moreover, women dared to criticise revered institutions, such as the medical system. Yet for all its perceived radicalism, the movement was part of a much broader and relatively conventional international health reform push, which included the ‘new’ public health movement, the community health centre movement and, in Australia, the Aboriginal health movement, all of which were critical of the way medical systems had been organised during the 20th century. The women who joined the movement came from diverse backgrounds and included immigrant and refugee women, Aboriginal women and Anglo women. Initially, groups worked separately for the most part but as time went on, they found ways to cooperate and collaborate. This book presents an account of the ideas, the diverse and shared efforts and the enduring hard work of women’s health activists, drawn together in one volume for the first time. This relentless activism gradually had an impact on public policy and slowly brought forth major attitudinal changes. The book also identifies the opportunities for health reform that were created along the way, opportunities which deserve to be more fully embraced.
