Abstract

From the 16th century to the 18th century skin colors have been stereotyped and stylized as essential characteristics of race. Color is of vital importance for artistic constructions of the body. This publication examines to what extent art has prepared the racist discourse by visual means and thus exercises structural violence. It is shown that the materialization of imaginary images contributes to the construction of difference in artworks.

Abstract

Sex is made socially. That this also applies to the biological gender sex - a postulate of queer-feminist theories -, this volume can be determined by biological theories for the first time decidedly and differentiated. The natural-philosophical and biological-medical gender theories of different periods of time (antiquity, incipient modernity, present) are presented and associated with social gender orders. Heinz-Jürgen Voß differentiates the struggling positions and shows that with process-oriented approaches, many genders are conceivable in biological theories - instead of just two or three.

Abstract

Based on empirical research, this book focuses on the ambivalences and contraditions of eating in Vietnam. Against the background of an emerging consumer society and the globalisation of the agro-food system, eating becomes centre stage for people’s bodily integrity, social differentiation, identity projects as well as a lynchpin for national and international food policies.

Abstract

Until now, the category of `culture' functioned as a central category of difference and explanation for reduced ability of the support system to reach families at the intersections of migration and disability. The barriers are alleged to be located above all within the family. Their culturally specific interpretation of disability, according to this assumption, does not correspond to the expectations of empowerment in disability services. To confront this one-dimensional perspective, Donja Amirpur illustrates the complex life situations of these families. Through interviews and with the help of an intersectional, multi-faceted analysis, she depicts the barriers in the support system, and promotes a critical confrontation with hegemonic practices on a structural level.

Abstract

Dance practice is gaining just as much in importance in research as it is becoming a kind of research in itself. Choreography, improvisation and exploration are expanding conventional discursive methods of knowledge generation and transfer to incorporate aesthetic dimensions of movement, corporeality, sensuality and emotion. This volume, with its interdisciplinary structure, provides an insight into the multi-faceted trend of research approaches that have either developed directly from, or refer back to, dance practice. Using projects as concrete examples, the contributions in this volume present theoretical and methodological foundations and historical connections advances in knowledge.

Abstract

How did the Swiss organ donation crisis come about? Despite reforms and advertising campaigns, from the late '80s, Swiss transplant medicine began to lament an increasing mistrust in organ donation and falling donor numbers. Simon Hofmann throws light on the role of doctors, nurses, family members and donees, but also of the media, politicians and the pharmaceutical industry. In doing so, he draws out the relations between hospital practices, public debates, and fictitious narratives about organ smuggling. He tells a complex and contradictory story of modern biomedicine at the edge of life and death, which is shaped as much by economic calculations as by utopian hope and traumatic fears.
