Close to the edge : in search of the global hip hop generation by Sujatha Fernandes( )

11 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At its rhythmic, beating heart, Close to the Edge asks whether hip hop can change the world. Hip hop -- rapping, beat-making, b-boying, deejaying, graffiti -- captured the imagination of the teenage Sujatha Fernandes in the 1980s, inspiring her and politicizing her along the way. Years later, armed with mc-ing skills and an urge to immerse herself in global hip hop, she embarks on a journey into street culture around the world. From the south side of Chicago to the barrios of Caracas and Havana and the sprawling periphery of Sydney, she grapples with questions of global voices and local critiques, and the rage that underlies both. An engrossing read and an exhilarating travelogue, this punchy book also asks hard questions about dispossession, racism, poverty and the quest for change through a microphone. -- Back cover

Curated stories : the uses and misuses of storytelling by Sujatha Fernandes( Book )

13 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Storytelling has proliferated today, from TED Talks and Humans of New York to a plethora of story-coaching agencies and consultants. These narratives are typically heartbreaking accounts of poverty, mistreatment, and struggle that often move us deeply. But what do they move us to? And what are the stakes in the crafting and use of storytelling?In Curated Stories, Sujatha Fernandes considers the rise of storytelling alongside the broader shift to neoliberal, free-market economies to argue that stories have been reconfigured to promote entrepreneurial self-making and restructured as easily digestible soundbites mobilized toward utilitarian ends. Fernandes roams the globe and returns with stories from the Afghan Women's Writing Project, the domestic workers movement and the undocumented student Dreamer movement in the United States, and the Misi n Cultura project in Venezuela to show how the conditions under which the stories are told, the tropes through which they are narrated, and the ways in which they are responded to may actually disguise the deeper contexts of global inequality. Curated stories shift the focus away from structural problems and defuse the confrontational politics of social movements. Not just a critical examination of contemporary use of narrative and its wider impact on our collective understanding of pressing social issues, Curated Stories also explores how storytelling might be reclaimed to allow for the complexity of experience to be expressed in pursuit of transformative social change
The Cuban hustle : culture, politics, everyday life by Sujatha Fernandes( )

8 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In THE CUBAN HUSTLE Sujatha Fernandes analyzes Cuba's cultural expression, politics, and everyday life across the last thirty years, a critical period of immense change in Cuba. She illuminates the myriad ways in which ordinary Cubans have survived, hustled, and created alternative cultures since the collapse of the Soviet Union. These essays cover a range of topics-from hip hop to feminism to Facebook-- based in the author's deep knowledge of Cuba and access to a number of subterannean cultures. They look, in part, at the development of urban black cultures like hip hop; visual artists' response to the global marketing of Cuba; the Cuban response to 9/11; new cultures of documentary filmmaking; the Weekly Packet (the Cuban version of the internet, circulated on flash drives); children filmmakers in a Cuban rural town; the death of Fidel Castro; and a hairdressers' project for social change. Fernandes reveals a complex, alive nation whose multiple influences and range of visions for itself contrasts with the Western view of Cuba's unidirectional path towards capitalism. The volume is divided into three sections. "Cultures of the Special Period" looks at the emergence of dynamic youth cultures and social movements in the 1990s, as Cuba grappled with economic collapse and the government took on a siege mentality, clamping down on critical expression. In place of the openly confrontational art of the 1980s, artists and activists now sought to negotiate with state officials and penetrate state organizations. The second section, "Normalization: Netflix Meets the Weekly Package," covers the period when President Obama restored diplomatic ties with Cuba, as well as Cubans' engagement with new digital technologies. The last section, "Cuban Futures and the Trump Era," examines ongoing attempts to create social justice projects despite renewed hostilities from the United States, including reimposed travel and trade restrictions. Cuba maintains a culture of resistance, and Cubans show a remarkable ability to continually reinvent themselves under difficult circumstances"--

The Environmental behaviour of Polonium by F Carvalho( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Polonium-210 is an alpha emitting radionuclide with no radioactive progeny and produces only very-low-intensity gamma rays at very low abundance. This means doses largely arise from internal exposure. In addition to the relatively high ingestion does coefficient of 210Po, radionuclide transfer in the environment results in high activity concentrations in certain foods. This publication focuses on radionuclide transfers in terrestrial, freshwater and marine environments, and provides information on key transfer processes, concepts and models--back cover
Cities From Scratch : Poverty and Informality in Urban Latin America( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays challenges long-entrenched ideas about the history, nature, and significance of the informal neighborhoods that house the vast majority of Latin America's urban poor. Until recently, scholars have mainly viewed these settlements through the prisms of crime and drug-related violence, modernization and development theories, populist or revolutionary politics, or debates about the cultures of poverty. Yet shantytowns have proven both more durable and more multifaceted than any of these perspectives foresaw. Far from being accidental offshoots of more dynamic economic and political developments, they are now a permanent and integral part of Latin America's urban societies, critical to struggles over democratization, economic transformation, identity politics, and the drug and arms trades. Integrating historical, cultural, and social scientific methodologies, this collection brings together recent research from across Latin America, from the informal neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro and Mexico City, Managua and Buenos Aires. Amid alarmist exposés, Cities from Scratch intervenes by considering Latin American shantytowns at a new level of interdisciplinary complexity.Contributors.

Who Can Stop the Drums? : Urban Social Movements in Chávez's Venezuela by Sujatha Fernandes( )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this vivid ethnography of social movements in the barrios, or poor shantytowns, of Caracas, Sujatha Fernandes reveals a significant dimension of political life in Venezuela since President Hugo Chávez was elected. Fernandes traces the histories of the barrios, from the guerrilla insurgency, movements against displacement, and cultural resistance of the 1960s and 1970s, through the debt crisis of the early 1980s and the neoliberal reforms that followed, to the Chávez period. She weaves barrio residents' life stories into her account of movements for social and economic justice. Who Can Stop the Drums? demonstrates that the transformations under way in Venezuela are shaped by negotiations between the Chávez government and social movements with their own forms of historical memory, local organization, and consciousness.Fernandes portrays everyday life and politics in the shantytowns of Caracas through accounts of community-based radio, barrio assemblies, and popular fiestas, and the many interviews she conducted with activists and government officials. Most of the barrio activists she presents are Chávez supporters. They see the leftist president as someone who understands their precarious lives and has made important changes to the state system to redistribute resources. Yet they must balance receiving state resources, which are necessary to fund their community-based projects, with their desire to retain a sense of agency. Fernandes locates the struggles of the urban poor within Venezuela's transition from neoliberalism to what she calls "post-neoliberalism." She contends that in contemporary Venezuela we find a hybrid state; while Chávez is actively challenging neoliberalism, the state remains subject to the constraints and logics of global capital
Reinventing the revolution : artistic public spheres and the state in contemporary Cuba by Sujatha Fernandes( )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most scholars suggest that the reason the Cuban socialist state has endured more than ten years after the collapse of the Soviet Union is because of the increased repression exercised by the regime against its opponents. In contrast to these scholars, I argue that although the Cuban state does rely on coercion to some extent, it survives partly because it tolerates criticisms of the kinds engaged in by artists and their audiences. This dissertation examines how Cubans use art forms such as film, rap music, and visual arts in order to reinvent hegemonic values of socialism and negotiate their demands, in ways that sustain the power of the Cuban state in the contemporary period. I provide a detailed empirical account of how ordinary Cubans are rethinking political ideology in the post-Soviet context. Moreover, I seek to open up a theoretical space for understanding critical activity in one-party systems, showing the multiple ways in which citizens of these regime types work within the limits of the system to make their voices heard
