Who Owns Religion

"One afternoon, Laurie Patton, then chair of the religious studies department at her university, sat in her office collating death threats. A colleague had come under attack by members of the Hindu diaspora for a scholarly study that they judged offensive. A global petition demanded that the book be withdrawn, and threats against the author included explicit calls for his execution. This case is one of many in which the secular study of religion has scandalized-and been passionately refuted by-the very communities it had imagined itself embracing. Authors of seemingly arcane studies on subjects like the origins of the idea of Mother Earth or the sexual dynamics of mysticism have been targets of hate mail and topics of book-banning discussions. As a result, scholars of religion have struggled to describe their own work even to themselves. In this book, scholar and noted university administrator Laurie Patton looks at the cultural work of religious studies through scholars' clashes with religious communities, especially in the late 1980s and 90s. These kinds of controversies emerged with new frequency and passion during this period because of two conditions: 1) the rise of the multicultural politics of recognition, which changed the nature of debate in the public sphere and created the possibility for Patton calls "eruptive" public spaces; and 2) the emergence of the Internet, which changed the nature of readership. "Others" about whom scholars wrote to their colleagues were now also readers who could agree or condemn in public forums. These controversies were also fundamentally about something new: the very rights of secular, Western hermeneutics to interpret religions at all. Patton's book holds out hope that scholars can find a space for their work between the university and the communities they study. Their role, she suggests, is similar to that of the wise fool in many classical dramas and indeed in many religious traditions. Scholars of religion have multiple masters and must move between them while speaking a truth that not everyone may be interested in hearing"--

Rhonda Hammer's Antifeminism and Family Terrorism presents original and provocative critical feminist perspectives on violence against women and children. Hammer provides a clear and insightful analysis of the current rhetoric produced by antifeminists who would deny the seriousness of the problem and thus undercut important feminist concerns. Dr. Hammer documents the tragic dimensions of the brutalization of women and children in the family, and the larger problem of the increasing poverty and oppression of women and children in the global economy.

Antagonizing White Feminism

Antagonizing White Feminism: Intersectionality’s Critique of Women’s Studies and the Academy pushes back against the exclusive scholarship and discourse coming out of women-centered spaces and projects, which throw up barriers by narrowly defining who can participate. Vehement resistance to using inclusive language and renaming scholarly spaces like Women’s Studies and Critical Feminism expresses itself in concerns that women are still oppressed and thus women-only spaces must be maintained. But who is a woman? What are the characteristics of a woman’s lived experience? Do affinity and a history of oppression justify exclusion? This book shows how intersectional feminism is often underperformed and appropriated as a “woke” vocabulary by elite women who are unwilling to do the necessary emotional work around their privilege. As Trans Women, Femmes, Women of Color, Queer Women, Gender Variant, and Gender Non-Conforming scholars emerge, the heteronormative, cisgender, colonial idea of women and the feminine is rapidly under attack. The contributors believe that to engage in the necessary conversations about the oppressed performing oppression is to disrupt the exclusionary basis of monolithic understandings of the feminine. Only then can we advance the coalition needed to forge a multiracial, multicultural, queer-led, anti-imperialist feminism.

A new politics of change is coming into being across the industrialised world. Active and rebellious, this new politics is redefining radicalism. It encompasses a broad range of issues - sexuality, gender, drugs, roads, ethnicity, cyberspace, democracy, music - and ventures into areas the timid political establishment does its best to avoid. As the new millennium begins, activists are reflecting on their struggles, and journalists and intellectuals are recognising the importance of the new politics. Storming the Millennium is the foremost book to bring a range of these activists and intellectuals together in one volume. The book provides some of the first histories of the movements that are at the core of new politics and grapples with the important political and theoretical issues they raise, through interviews and analyses. Bringing together new and established writers, Storming the Millennium is in two parts. In the first part, there are five analyses of specific movements. Rupa Huq analyses the relationship between 'rave' and dance culture and the British Government's draconian legislation, the Criminal Justice Act. Peter Beresford takes up the story of how disabled people and psychiatric survivors have struggled to ensure they participate in political change. Merl Storr analyses recent shifts in the bisexual movement from resistance to oppression to the recognition of networks of power permeating sexualities. Patrick Field explores attacks on road-building within the context of ecological danger. Finally, Tim Jordan provides the first detailed analysis of an Internet based political organisation, the USA based Electronic Frontier Foundation, and finds both grassroots defence and elite empowerment. The second part of Storming the Millennium explores different ways of analysing the significance of new politics. Sanjay Sharma and Shirin Housee explore a community's response to racist murders in the context of discussions around the importance of identities such as 'black' or 'Asian' to anti-racist struggles. Pam Alldred interviews USA analyst Nancy Fraser, exploring the relationship between redistributive and identity politics. Tim Jordan analyses different definitions of exploitation and liberation, arguing for the left to carry itself forward into a radical politics of many definitions of liberation. Tony Fitzpatrick outlines the often neglected world of 'self-help' social welfare and its relationship to the failing welfare state. Adam Lent explores internal divisions within political movements and argues for novel political identities. Finally, Tessa Bird and Tim Jordan interview Stuart Hall, Doreen Massey and Michael Rusting, exploring the relationship between new politics and the New Left, the value of still calling oneself a socialist and whether class remains the key political framework. Storming the Millennium includes exhilarating stories of resistance and change, alongside complex yet accessible analyses of the nature of current radical politics.

How and why have women academics experienced patterns of exclusion, segregation and discrimination in higher education? To what extent are academic relationships characterized by endemic sexism in defence of male privilege? What parallels are there in patterns of discrimination and disadvantage for academic women in different cultural contexts? Academic Women explores these questions and investigates the relationships between gender, power and the academy through an analysis of the position of academic women in higher education in the UK and New Zealand. It considers the gap between the models of equality and academic fairness which are said to characterize academic life and the sexist reality of the academy. Ann Brooks combines new and original data drawn from statistical evidence and from the results of questionnaires and interviews with British and New Zealand women academics; and this evidence is located within a wider framework of historical evidence on the position of academic women in both countries.
