In Animate Planet Kath Weston shows how new intimacies between humans, animals, and their surroundings are emerging as people attempt to understand how the high-tech ecologically damaged world they have made is remaking them, one synthetic chemical, radioactive isotope, and megastorm at a time. Visceral sensations, she finds, are vital to this process, which yields a new animism in which humans and "the environment" become thoroughly entangled. In case studies on food, water, energy, and climate from the United States, India, and Japan, Weston approaches the new animism as both a symptom of our times and an analytic with the potential to open paths to new and forgotten ways of living.

In Respawn Colin Milburn examines the connections between video games, hacking, and science fiction that galvanize technological activism and technological communities. Discussing a wide range of games, from Portal and Final Fantasy VII to Super Mario Sunshine and Shadow of the Colossus, Milburn illustrates how they impact the lives of gamers and non-gamers alike. They also serve as resources for critique, resistance, and insurgency, offering a space for players and hacktivist groups such as Anonymous to challenge obstinate systems and experiment with alternative futures. Providing an essential walkthrough guide to our digital culture and its high-tech controversies, Milburn shows how games and playable media spawn new modes of engagement in a computerized world.

For most of the twentieth century, anthropologists understood themselves as ethnographers. The art of anthropology was the fieldwork-based description of faraway others—of how social structures secretly organized the living-together of a given society, of how a people had endowed the world surrounding them with cultural meaning. While the poetics and politics of anthropology have changed dramatically over the course of a century, the basic equation of anthropology with ethnography—as well as the definition of the human as a social and cultural being—has remained so evident that the possibility of questioning it occurred to hardly anyone. In After Ethnos Tobias Rees endeavors to decouple anthropology from ethnography—and the human from society and culture—and explores the manifold possibilities of practicing a question-based rather than an answer-based anthropology that emanates from this decoupling. What emerges from Rees's provocations is a new understanding of anthropology as a philosophically and poetically inclined, fieldwork-based investigation of what it could mean to be human when the established concepts of the human on which anthropology has been built increasingly fail us.

Risky Bodies and Techno-Intimacy traverses disparate and uncommon routes to explore how people grapple with the radical uncertainties of their lives.

The result is a deeply poetic and philosophical exploration of the intricacies of techno-intimacy, revealing a complicated and absorbing narrative that challenges assumptions underlying our daily living.

Personhood and relationality have re-animated debate in and between many disciplines. We are in the midst of a simultaneous "ontological turn", a "(re)turn to things" and a "relational turn", and also debating a "new animism". It is increasingly recognised that the boundaries between the "natural" and "social" sciences are of heuristic value but might not adequately describe reality of a multi-species world. Following rich and provocative dialogues between ethnologists and Indigenous experts, relations between the received knowledge of Western Modernity and that of people who dwell and move within different ontologies have shifted. Reflection on human relations with the larger-than-human world can no longer rely on the outdated assumption that "nature" and "cultures" already accurately describe the lineaments of reality. The chapters in this volume advance debates about relations between humans and things, between scholars and others, and between Modern and Indigenous ontologies. They consider how terms in diverse communities might hinder or help express, evidence and explore improved ways of knowing and being in the world. Contributors to this volume bring different perspectives and approaches to bear on questions about animism, personhood, materiality, and relationality. They include anthropologists, archaeologists, ethnographers, and scholars of religion.

كيف أثر قط طفولة ريتشارد فورد على عمله الروائي؟ كيف تأثرت لوحات تشاك كلوز بعدم قدرته على تذكر الوجوه؟ ما اللحظة المحورية التي ساعدت روزان كاش على فهم قوة الشفاء على المسرح؟ الإبداع هو موضوع بعيد المنال؛ فنحن نتمتع بثماره: الأفلام، والروايات، واللوحات، والأغاني - ولكننا نادرًا ما كنا مطلعين على ما يحدث في أثناء العملية الإبداعية؛ ففي سبارك، تتبع جولي بيرشتاين جذور بعض المفكرين والمبدعين الأكثر تأثيرًا في القرن الحادي والعشرين، بما في ذلك جويس كارول أوتس، يو يو ما، ديفيد ميلش، إيزابيل الليندي، وجوشوا ريدمان. حيث تقوم جولي بكشف الستار عن مصادر إلهام هؤلاء الفنانين، والعمليات التي تبرز عملهم الى حيز الوجود. كتبت جولي: «قد لا يغير هؤلاء الفنانين الرصاص إلى ذهب»، وأضافت: «لكنهم رفعوا الأشياء من سياقاتها المألوفة، وجمعوها، وأعادوا تشكيلها، وحولوها إلى أعمال فنية تغير الطريقة التي نرى بها العالم». يعدُّ كتاب سبارك مصدرًا قيمًا للكاتب والفنان الطموح، ولكن تمتد الحاجة إلى الإبداع إلى ما وراء عالم فرش الرسم والآلات الكاتبة؛ فالإبداع جزء لا يتجزأ من العمل، وتربية الأطفال، والتعليم، والعلوم، وربما الأكثر تأثيراً في علاقاتنا الشخصية، ونادرًا ما تضيء كتب الإبداع وتلهم؛ ​​ولكن سيلهمك هذا الكتاب الرائع ويساعدك في العثور على سبارك بنفسك. العبيكان 2017
