At first sight the lives of hermits, living in solitude and committed to a life of prayer and contemplation seems to be a world apart of the active practice of interfaith dialogue. Yet, there is a long tradition of seeking the divine together and thus making a contribution to better mutual understanding and an active contribution to peace between Christianity, Hinduism and Buddhism in India. Drawing on his experience of travelling to some of India's holy places, the life and work of writers like Thomas Merton, Charles de Foucauld and Abishaktanda and being himself a Benedictine hermit and Professor of Divinity at the University of St Andrews, Mario Aguilar opens up new possibilities for dialogue between three of the world's major religions in today's world. He shows how his own experience of an eremitic life has brought him into deep communion with pilgrims of other faiths, be it through shared silence or listening to each other's experience, through reading sacred scriptures together, through poetry or interfaith worship that draws on practices and texts from Hinduism, Buddhism and Christianity. This is a book for all engaged in interfaith dialogue and seeking to explore how spiritualities of silence, contemplation and prayer can make a contribution to peace and harmony in the world today.

'The Pop artists were among the first to understand the desire of consumers to change their lives through the purchase of clean, manufactured commodities. YBA, on the other hand, was more interested in the dirt that accrues beneath the laminate surface of shiny things. Their special perception was that cheap language and cheap materials didn't have to equal cheap thinking. The trick was to tell it in a jaunty, unportentous, off-hand, unliterary - anti-literary - way. And then there were the drugs.' Spanning nearly 35 years, Sex & Violence, Death & Silence is a collection of the best of Gordon Burn's writing on art. Focusing on two principle generations - the Royal College pop art of Hockney and his contemporaries, and the YBA sensations of the 1990s - it explores how these artists rose to prominence with their friends and contemporaries, and what happened next. Burn's work is fast becoming a kind of chronicle. Its factuality always connects with the broader poetic rythms of cultural life. Displaying all his customary insight and empathy, his writing adds up to much more than a collection of pieces on art: superbly evocative and engaging, it offers a pathway through two of the most important and vibrant periods in recent art history, and is another compelling and ruminative look at our culture.

The descriptive multi-case study asks three adult migrants, first-language (L1) Spanish-speakers from Mexico, about their interpretations of their own and others' silences as they navigate daily life, jobs, family, and English-language learning in the United States. Subjective opinions about silence, their second-language (L2) acquisition processes, comfort levels in various speaking situations, functions of L2 communication, and affective and social dimensions of language learning are related to participants' willingness to communicate (WTC), a construct that measures a predisposition to talk, rather than stay silent, in L2 interaction. The research, through daily language-use surveys and semi-structured Spanish-language interviews with the three English-language learners, provides naturalistic narrative data to help learn how WTC changes as learners negotiate their L2 identities and nonnative-speaker status. Participants address L2 speaking anxiety, inner speech, cases of linguistic and racial discrimination, listening strategies, and the influence of both native-speakers and Spanish-English bilinguals on their decisions to stay silent or to speak English in contexts such as family, job, health care, schools, commerce, and government. A range of social and cross-cultural factors is also shown to affect informants' opportunities for speaking English and communicating in authentic L2 settings. These extralinguistic factors include demographics of the Latino(a) community, judgments about Spanish-language power and vitality, levels of social isolation, and economic pressures. Coding of sequences from participant interviews allows content analysis by theme and later synthesis of narratives to add to knowledge about the potential value and risks of silence in second-language acquisition.

The author of this play, Sister Bridget Edman, is a Discalced Carmelite nun whose personal religious quest led her to the Carmelites in South Africa. She entered the Carmelite monastery in Johannesburg, and, when it closed, moved to the monastery in Cape Town. Sister Edman, who is concerned with the problem of faith, which problem is characteristic of modern humans, has written an article on John of the Cross and the Existentialists and another comparing John of the Cross with Kierkegaard. In Nietzsche is My Brother, she compares St. Therese of Lisieux with the philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche.For some years the mission of evangelization has extended itself to reach those who have usually been beyond the grasp of the Church. It has done so not to proselytize but in a new spirit of listening, of understanding, and of openness. Nietzsche is My Brother, which won first prize in the International Competition for Religious Drama, is filled with this spirit.

With a Foreword by Vijay Prashad and an Afterword by Gary Okihiro How might we understand yellowface performances by African Americans in 1930s swing adaptations of Gilbert and Sullivan's The Mikado, Paul Robeson's support of Asian and Asian American struggles, or the absorption of hip hop by Asian American youth culture? AfroAsian Encounters is the first anthology to look at the mutual influence of and relationships between members of the African and Asian diasporas. While these two groups have often been thought of as occupying incommensurate, if not opposing, cultural and political positions, scholars from history, literature, media, and the visual arts here trace their interconnections and interactions, as well as the tensions between the two groups that sometimes arise. AfroAsian Encounters probes beyond popular culture to trace the historical lineage of these coalitions from the late nineteenth century to the present. A foreword by Vijay Prashad sets the volume in the context of the Bandung conference half a century ago, and an afterword by Gary Okihiro charts the contours of a “Black Pacific.” From the history of Japanese jazz composers to the current popularity of black/Asian “buddy films” like Rush Hour, AfroAsian Encounters is a groundbreaking intervention into studies of race and ethnicity and a crucial look at the shifting meaning of race in the twenty-first century.

How and why is silence used interculturally? Approaching the phenomenon of silence from multiple perspectives, this book shows how silence is used, perceived and at times misinterpreted in intercultural communication. Using a model of key aspects of silence in communication – linguistic, cognitive and sociopsychological – and fundamental levels of social organization – individual, situational and sociocultural - the book explores the intricate relationship between perceptions and performance of silence in interaction involving Japanese and Australian participants. Through a combination of macro- and micro- ethnographic analyses of university seminar interactions, the stereotypes of the ‘silent East’ is reconsidered, and the tension between local and sociocultural perspectives of intercultural communication is addressed. The book has relevance to researchers and students in intercultural pragmatics, discourse analysis and applied linguistics.

Silence: The Mystery of Wholeness opens our eyes to the importance of cultivating the nurturing aspects of silence in our personal relationships and enables us to awaken the inner currents of spirituality that ultimately lead to a path of universal compassion, service, and healing.
