Creative reckonings : the politics of art and culture in contemporary Egypt by Jessica Winegar( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 271 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Egyptian art world is the oldest and largest in the Arab Middle East. Its artists must reckon with the histories of ancient Egypt, European modernism, anti-colonial nationalism, and state socialism-all in the context of a growing neoliberal economy marked by American global dominance. At this crucial intersection of culture, politics, and economy, Egypt's art and artists provide unique insight into current struggles for cultural identity and sovereignty in the Middle East. This book examines the heated cultural politics in today's Arab world, and tells how art-making has become an unexpectedly central part of that. It offers a lively analysis of the battles between artists, curators, and audiences over cultural authenticity, cultural policy, public art in a changing urban Egypt, and the new global marketing of Egyptian art. The art world it shows powerfully exemplifies how people in the Middle East reckon with global transformations that are changing how culture is made in societies with colonial and socialist pasts." from the publisher
Anthropology's politics : disciplining the Middle East by Lara Deeb( Book )

9 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book sheds light on the contemporary state of Middle East anthropology as it is situated in broader, intertwined fields of anthropological, academic, national, and global politics. The aim is to track the relationship between anthropological work and politics, taking as the case study the primary region that has, in the post-Cold War era, become the focus of political intervention and politicized discussion. This ethnographic investigation of post-Cold War academic politics is framed in three overlapping histories. First, the authors excavate the institutionalization of the Middle East Section of the American Anthropological Association as the outcome of a longer struggle to establish the "Middle East" as a region of study within anthropology. Second, the authors analyze the relationship of the development of the regional subfield to changes with the AAA more generally, highlighting the sometimes fraught relationships of discipline to region (namely the growing prominence of disciplinary studies and declining interest in "area studies"), as well as on the presumed progressive politics of the discipline. Third, geopolitics are of course critical to discipline-region relations, and this book is situated within an analysis of the impact of post-Cold War geopolitics on the academy in general and scholarship of the Middle East in particular

Claiming Egypt : the cultural politics of artistic practice in a postcolonial society by Jessica Winegar( )

5 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation takes as its starting point the ambivalent place modern art occupies in Egypt, where it was a colonial import, but where the culture industries have historically been a primary domain where national authenticity was to be protected and developed. Maintaining artistic authenticity, then, has always been a fraught affair. The battles of cultural politics that arise are read as struggles to render art locally meaningful and legitimate, instead of elitist, Westernized, and irrelevant. These struggles reflect the ways in which elites are reformulating their relationship to "the masses" after socialism. The battles are also examined as embodying artists' claims to represent the nation and/or to make art cosmopolitan, instead of backward or imitative, at a time when more Euro-Americans consume modern Egyptian art than in any period since colonialism. In sum, the cultural politics of Egyptian artistic practice reveal how elites, whose work and lives are shaped by the anti-colonial struggle and subsequent state socialism, negotiate the changes wrought by a free market economy. Such changes have presented unprecedented challenges for Egyptian secular intellectuals trying to break into the international scene (and through its prejudices), while struggling to garner legitimacy in the national space, where the politicization of Islam and state censorship pose constant threats

'If books fail, try beauty': Gender, consumption, and higher education in Uganda by Brooke Bocast( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

My dissertation "'If books fail, try beauty': Gender, consumption, and higher education in Uganda," explores students' romantic entanglements at Uganda's Makerere University (the "Harvard of Africa") in order to illuminate emerging processes of value creation in the context of controversial market-based education reforms. Each chapter of my dissertation (in addition to the Introduction and Conclusion) speaks to an underlying question: Why do educated, financially stable young women engage in sexual transactions that incur significant biomedical and social risk? Ultimately, I demonstrate how these reforms - in opposition to their gender equality aims - compel novel sexual and consumption practices that undermine female students' opportunities for success. The aims of my dissertation are three-fold. First, I analyze the interlinked sexual and consumption practices of an emerging demographic group in a post-structural adjustment economy; namely, young, educated, unmarried women. Because they occupy this novel life stage, female students are structurally positioned to be a particularly revelatory group for examining the relationship between institutional restructuring and transforming gender, class, and generational norms in East Africa. Second, this project provides a crucial counterpoint to the bulk of Africanist literature that conflates "youth" with "young men." In doing so, my analysis generates insight into how young women navigate the challenges and opportunities wrought by higher education reform. Third, by taking seriously the prevalence of HIV on African university campuses, this project produces useful knowledge about cross-generational sex and multiple concurrent partnerships - practices that directly contribute to disproportionate rates of HIV among young African women (as opposed to men)
