Urban dreams, transformations of family life in Burkina Faso by Claudia Roth( )

11 editions published in 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[Anthropologist] Claudia Roth's work on Bobo-Dioulasso, a city of half a million residents in Burkina Faso, provides uniquely detailed insight into the evolving life-world of a West African urban population in one of the poorest countries in the world ..."--Back cover
Ageing in insecurity : case studies on social security and gender in India and Burkina Faso = Vieillir dans l'insécurité : sécurité sociale et genre en Inde et au Burkina Faso : études de cas( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ethnographic case studies conducted in rural and urban India and Burkina Faso show that large parts of the poor population are aging in insecurity. Not only public support is insufficient, but family support is also limited and thus a delicate matter. The issue of gender is a special focus of interest. The book contributes to the expanding field of social security studies in the social sciences which try to give answers to crucial issues in today's societies
Striking patterns : global traces in local ikat fashion by Paola von Wyss-Giacosa( Book )

7 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 95 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present publication takes readers on a journey to a handicraft that causes not only experts to prick up their ears but laypeople as well, capturing their imagination with each new chapter. At the same time, ethnologists and art historians aid in becoming familiar with the object of research from various directions. Ikat, the technology and art form of creating complex patterns on hand-woven textiles that is practiced primarily in Indonesia, India, and Central and South America, has continuously developed over the course of centuries. Foreign influences were absorbed and creatively integrated into local patterns. The main objects of research are works by female master weavers from eastern Indonesia and Timor-Leste. Their fabrics reflect not only fashion and modernity but also aspects of globalization. Exhibition: Museum der Kulturen Basel, Switzerland (21.10.2016-26.3.2017)
Alter(n) anders denken kulturelle und biologische Perspektiven by Brigitte Röder( )

6 editions published in 2012 in German and held by 75 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die letzten Dekaden des Lebens werden zunehmend aus der verengten Perspektive eines Jugendlichkeitskultes und der Demographiedebatte wahrgenommen und folglich überwiegend negativ konnotiert. Dieser Tendenz setzt der Band die kulturelle Vielfalt des Alter(n)s entgegen: Zwanzig Beiträge aus biologischen, sozialwissenschaftlichen und kulturhistorischen Disziplinen beleuchten das Alter(n) in unterschiedlichsten Kulturen - angefangen bei ur- und frühgeschichtlichen Gemeinschaften über antike Hochkulturen des Mittelmeerraumes bis hin zu den Gesellschaften der Gegenwart. Durch diesen weiten Fokus werden verschiedenartigste historische und soziale Lebenswirklichkeiten alter Menschen präsentiert. Diese schärfen den Blick für die vielfältigen Prozesse, Erfahrungen und Potenziale des Alter(n)s und regen eine Reflexion der aktuellen Altersdiskurse an - die Voraussetzung dafür, Alter(n) anders zu denken. Band zur Tagung "2. Internationales Mainzer Symposium Anthropologie im 21. Jahrhundert zum Thema »Reflexionen zu Alter und Altern in Vergangenheit und Gegenwart. Biologische und kulturelle Perspektiven«“. Das Symposium fand vom 3. bis 5. April 2008 statt
Making bodies, persons, and families : normalising reproductive technologies in Russia, Switzerland, and Germany( Book )

6 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The far-reaching social implications of "artificial fertilisation" are an understudied phenomenon in Switzerland and Russia. Public acceptance of in vitro fertilisation is increasing, but to have a child with this technology, and without sex, is still often imbued with secrecy and taboos. The book sheds light on the cultural and social production of gendered bodies, persons and families in Russia, Switzerland and Germany in the context of reproductive technologies, with a special focus on normalisation practices
Arts in the margins of world encounters( )

4 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Arts on the Margins of World Encounters" presents original contributions that deal with artworks of differently marginalized people-such as ethnic minorities, refugees, immigrants, disabled people, and descendants of slaves-, a wide variety of art forms-like clay figures, textile, paintings, poems, museum exhibits and theater performances-, and original data based on committed, long-term fieldwork and/or archival research in Brazil, Martinique, Rwanda, India, Indonesia, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand. The volume develops theoretical approaches inspired by innovative theorists and is based on currently debated analytical categories including the ethnographic turn in contemporary art, polycentric aesthetics, and aesthetic cannibalization, among others. This collection also incorporates fascinating and intriguing contemporary cases, but with solid theoretical arguments and grounds. "Arts on the Margins of World Encounters" will appeal to students at all levels, scholars, and practitioners in arts, aesthetics, anthropology, social inequality, and discrimination, as well as researchers in other fields, including post-colonialism and cultural organizations"--

Collines des mille souvenirs : vivre après et avec le génocide perpétré contre les Tutsi du Rwanda by Andrea Grieder( )

3 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This thesis deals with the extreme violence suffered by the Tutsi people of Rwanda during the genocide of 1994. I also explore the means which have been used to confront and overcome this traumatic past. Using a phenomenological approach, the theme is introduced by means of the portraits of survivors. A first part of the work attempts to to write the 'history' of the hill of Nyamagumba based on the stories and eye-witness accounts of survivors, interviews with some of those who carried out the genocide, analysis of official speeches and also of what is really at stake during commemoration ceremonies and the gacaca judicial sessions. A second part focuses on the young - students and survivors of the genocide - on how they live with the traumatic past and the way in which they see their future. These portraits of the young are discussed in the context of a collective reconstruction, especially with regard to the ceremonies of commemoration. With the aim of meditating on suffering and the ways in which it can be overcome, this present work brings to light both the form and the content of how the traumatic experiences of genocide may be put into the words. Words are seen as a means of transformation of the self and one's relationship with others. The power of the word is the main thread of all my reflections on the subject. In considering, one after the other, metaphors of silence and of suffering and the words pronounced in the cause of justice, collective reconciliation and the emergence of a 'shared history' which seeks to restore the social fabric so affected by the genocide, this thesis works towards a reflection on the significance of poetry as a form of healing

Reproductive technologies as global form : ethnographies of knowledge, practices, and transnational encounters by Stefan Beck( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in German and English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the thirty years since the first 'test-tube baby', in-vitro fertilization and other methods of reproductive assistance have become a common aspect of family life and medicine in developed nations - and, increasingly, throughout the world. This collection brings together ethnographic studies of how these reproductive technologies are deployed across a wide variety of nations and cultures, taking special account of how they are linked to aspirations towards modernity - and how they contribute to an ongoing reconfiguration of the boundaries of knowledge and human agency. The resulting volume offers both a current snapshot of the cultural state of reproductive technologies and a plethora of provocative questions for the future.--
