Spanning a century, from Kate Chopin and Fannie Hurst to J. California Cooper and Elana Dykewomon, this bold and deeply satisfying anthology of women's stories explores women's relationships to, and perceptions of, their physical selves. Addressing the peculiarities, the pleasures, and the shames of body politics, these stories of bodies that refuse to be contained offer a variety of perspectives on fully inhabiting the flesh. Whether celebrating bodies deemed transgressive or simply daring to acknowledge that such bodies exist, these diverse literary representations of fatness render the excessive body brilliantly, unapologetically visible.

Constructing Black Selves

Caribbean American Narratives and the Second Generation

In 1965, the Hart-Cellar Immigration Reform Act ushered in a huge wave of immigrants from across the Caribbean—Jamaicans, Cubans, Haitians, and Dominicans, among others. How have these immigrants and their children negotiated languages of race and ethnicity in American social and cultural politics? As black immigrants, to which America do they assimilate? Constructing Black Selves explores the cultural production of second-generation Caribbean immigrants in the United States after World War II as a prism for understanding the formation of Caribbean American identity. Lisa D. McGill pays particular attention to music, literature, and film, centering her study around the figures of singer-actor Harry Belafonte, writers Paule Marshall, Audre Lorde, and Piri Thomas, and meringue-hip-hop group Proyecto Uno. Illuminating the ways in which Caribbean identity has been transformed by mass migration to urban landscapes, as well as the dynamic and sometimes conflicted relationship between Caribbean American and African American cultural politics, Constructing Black Selves is an important contribution to studies of twentieth century U.S. immigration, African American and Afro-Caribbean history and literature, and theories of ethnicity and race.

Die Inside-Out-Revolution

Das Einzige, was du wissen musst, um dein Leben für immer zu verändern

Author: Michael Neill

Publisher: Langen Mueller Herbig

ISBN: 3485061204

Category: Psychology

Page: 160

Veränderung ist unglaublich einfach! Wer wünscht sich nicht große Klarheit, Ruhe und Freiheit, auch in schwierigen Situationen? In seinem bahnbrechenden neuen Buch präsentiert Michael Neill eine radikal neue Sichtweise, wie das Leben funktioniert, und stellt damit die traditionelle Psychologie auf den Kopf. Dieser revolutionäre Ansatz gründet auf drei einfachen Grundsätzen, die erklären, woher unsere Gefühle kommen und wie sich unsere Erlebniswelt in nur wenigen Augenblicken verändern lässt. Versteht man diese Prinzipien, erkennt man die tiefere Intelligenz, die hinter dem Leben steckt, hat Zugang zu natürlicher Weisheit und Führung und kann grenzenlose Kreativität freisetzen. Dadurch lässt sich Stress reduzieren, größere Ruhe finden und das Gefühl der Verbundenheit zum Leben wiederentdecken.

Amerika Tag und Nacht

Reisetagebuch 1947

Author: Simone de Beauvoir

Publisher: Rowohlt Verlag GmbH

Eine glänzende, intime Reportage über das geistige Amerika. Eine Reise durch den gewaltigen Kontinent, kreuz und quer, im Pullman, im Greyhound, im Flugzeug, im Auto, hat die berühmte französische Autorin Simone de Beauvoir gerade mit der Schicht des amerikanischen Volks in Gespräch und Verbindung gebracht, von der wir wenig hören, nämlich der amerikanischen Intelligenz. Vor anderen Amerikabüchern zeichnet sich das Buch daher aus, weil hier einmal nicht der Primat der Politik, Wirtschaft oder Technik gefeiert, nicht die Schlagwortwelt der Trapper, der letzten Indianer, der Hollywoodstars und Ölmagnaten aufgetischt wird, sondern weil eine überzeugte europäische Individualistin freimütig mit Journalisten, Gelehrten, Künstlern und Studenten Probleme der Neuen und Alten Welt diskutiert.
