Seeing politics otherwise : vision in Latin American and Iberian fiction by Patricia I Vieira( )

13 editions published between 2008 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 1,606 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vieira's discussion focuses on three literary works: Graciliano Ramos's Memoirs of Prison, Ariel Dorfman's Death and the Maiden, and José Saramago's Blindness, with supplemental analyses of sculpture and film by Ana Maria Pacheco, Bruno Barreto, and Marco Bechis. These artists use metaphors of blindness to denounce the totalizing gaze of dictatorial regimes. Rather than equating blindness with deprivation, Vieira argues that shadows, blindfolds, and blindness are necessary elements for re-imagining the political world and re-acquiring a political voice. Seeing Politics Otherwise offers a compelling analysis of vision and its forcible deprivation in the context of art and political protest."--Pub. desc
Existential utopia : new perspectives on utopian thought by Michael Marder( )

14 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 767 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radical political thought of the 20th century was dominated by utopia, but the failure of communism in Eastern Europe and its disavowal in China has brought on the need for a new model of utopian thought. This book thus seeks to redefine the concept of utopia and bring it to bear on today's politics
Portuguese film, 1930-1960 : the staging of the new state regime by Patricia I Vieira( )

15 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in English and held by 395 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Portuguese Film, 1930-1960: The Staging of the New State Regime provides groundbreaking analysis of Portuguese feature films produced in the first three decades of the New State (Estado Novo), a right-wing totalitarian regime that lasted between 1933 and 1974. These films, sponsored by the National Propaganda Institute (Secretariado Nacional de Propaganda), convey a conservative image of both mainland Portugal and the country's overseas African colonies (Angola, Mozambique, Cape Verde, Guinea-Bissau and St. Thomas and Principe). The films about the mainland emphasize traditional values, the importance of obedience to authorities and a strict division of gender roles, whereby women are relegated to the domestic sphere. The Portuguese countryside, where age-old customs and a strong social hierarchy prevailed, is presented in these movies as a model for the rest of the country. The films about the colonies, in turn, underline the benefits of the Portuguese presence in Africa and portray the colonized as docile subjects to Portuguese rule. The book includes chapter summaries in the introduction, in-depth analyses of the most important Portuguese films produced between 1930 and 1960, a discussion of the main topics of Portuguese cinema from the New State, and a comprehensive bibliography that guides students who wish to read further on a specific topic. First published in Portuguese to wide acclaim, Portuguese Film, 1930-1960: The Staging of the New State Regime fills a gap in English-language scholarship on the history of the national cinema of the Iberian peninsula. Films covered include Fatima, Land of Faith (Terra de Fe), Spell of the Empire (Feitico do Imperio), and Chaimite"--
The language of plants : science, philosophy, literature by Monica Gagliano( )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The eighteenth-century naturalist Erasmus Darwin (grandfather of Charles) argued that plants are animate, living beings and attributed them sensation, movement, and a certain degree of mental activity, emphasizing the continuity between humankind and plant existence. Two centuries later, the understanding of plants as active and communicative organisms has reemerged in such diverse fields as plant neurobiology, philosophical posthumanism, and ecocriticism. The Language of Plants brings together groundbreaking essays from across the disciplines to foster a dialogue between the biological sciences and the humanities and to reconsider our relation to the vegetal world in new ethical and political terms. Viewing plants as sophisticated information-processing organisms with complex communication strategies (they can sense and respond to environmental cues and play an active role in their own survival and reproduction through chemical languages) radically transforms our notion of plants as unresponsive beings, ready to be instrumentally appropriated. By providing multifaceted understandings of plants, informed by the latest developments in evolutionary ecology, the philosophy of biology, and ecocritical theory, The Language of Plants promotes the freedom of imagination necessary for a new ecological awareness and more sustainable interactions with diverse life forms.

The philosophical salon : speculations, reflections, interventions( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through the interpretative lens of today's leading thinkers, The Philosophical Salon illuminates the persistent intellectual queries and the most disquieting concerns of our actuality. Across its three main divisions--Speculations, Reflections, and Interventions--the volume constructs a complex mirror, in which our age might be able to recognize itself with all its imperfections, shadowy spots, even threatening abysses and latent promises. On the cutting edge of philosophy, political and literary theory, and aesthetics, this book courageously tackles a wide array of topics, including climate change, the role of technology, reproductive rights, the problem of refugees, the task of the university, political extremism, embodiment, utopia, food ethics, and sexual identity. It is an enduring record of an ongoing conversation, as well as a building block for any attempt to make sense of our world's multifaceted realities.

The green thread : dialogues with the vegetal world by Patricia I Vieira( Book )

4 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Green Thread is an interdisciplinary collection of essays that takes the risk of departing from the long-standing human perception of plants-defined by what they are thought to lack, including autonomy, agency, consciousness, and, arguably, intelligence-to explore new territories where the re-conceptualization of vegetal beings as active agents in social and cultural environments becomes possible

Landfill = Aterro( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in Portuguese and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Belo Horizonte is a planned city, built and inaugurated under the progressist precepts of the late XIX century. In about half a century, its waste output surpassed the limits of the waste management system and all garbage began being disposed of outdoors, less than 5Km from the city center. Aterro is a film about seven women who pioneered waste salvaging in Brazil. Facing the current and controversial landfilling system, they speak about the seemingly unavoidable fate of waste. --

1 edition published in 2017 in Spanish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

En las próximas décadas la humanidad se enfrenta a uno de los retos más complejos de su historia. En la segunda mitad del siglo XXI tendremos que dejar de emitir C02 a la atmósfera, para siempre. "Después del fin del mundo" es un ensayo espacial sobre el presente y el futuro de la crisis climática: un viaje a los paisajes del planeta Antropoceno y una conversación con los humanos y no-humanos del 2100. Artistas, filósofos, montañas de arena, novelistas, animales marinos, dramaturgos, plantas, arquitectos, objetos, diseñadores especulativos, ríos contaminados, satélites, científicos... trabajan juntos para imaginar escenas, contar historias y construir estrategias para sobrevivir en el mundo que viene. El resultado es una experiencia hipnótica, de extrañamiento, que habla del trauma ante la magnitud de la crisis y la pérdida del mundo tal y como lo conocíamos, pero también de la oportunidad de cambio y la urgencia de un pacto entre generaciones
