I m no longer human Book Description:

DAS FREIGELEGTE ICH: IN SEINEN GEDICHTEN SCHREIBT SICH YOUSIF T. AHMED WORT FÜR WORT AN SICH HERAN. MEHR ODER WENIGER MENSCH Wir sind uns Freund*innen, Albtraum, Familie, Feind*innen, Erinnerung. All das macht uns MENSCHLICH. Doch das, WAS WIR AN UNS VERWERFLICH FINDEN UND WAS UNS SCHMERZT, verdrängen wir oder projizieren es auf andere. Yousif T. Ahmed widmet seine Aufmerksamkeit genau diesen Seiten der Menschlichkeit und seines Lebens. ER DEKONSTRUIERT SICH SELBST, UNTERSUCHT JEDES SEINER FRAGMENTE UND REFLEKTIERT DEN BLICK DER ANDEREN: Erwartungen und Vorurteile, die Fähigkeit zu lieben und zu akzeptieren, alte Muster und Eitelkeiten, Verlust und Fluchterfahrung, der Zwang zum Neuanfang. YOUSIF T. AHMED HAT DIE MACHT DER EIGENEN STIMME ERKANNT - UND ER ERHEBT SIE. Welche Seiten an uns akzeptieren wir als MENSCHLICHKEIT? Wie menschlich - im besten Sinne des Wortes - verhalten wir uns zueinander? YOUSIF T. AHMEDS GEDICHTE WERDEN DICH IRRITIEREN UND DIR ETWAS VOR AUGEN FÜHREN. Wenn du es zulässt, auch dich selbst: Vielleicht findest du deine Geschichte in seiner wieder. Vielleicht aber fühlst du dich angegriffen, denn er zeigt dir, was du im Gegenzug für deine Empathie von ihm verlangst. Seine Lyrik ist voller unbequemer Fragen. SEINE ZEILEN SIND HEISS, KALT, UNKASCHIERT, SCHNEIDEND. Mit jeder davon erlangt er Besitz über sich: über seine Stimme, seine Sprache, seine Geschichte, seine Identität. TRIGGERWARNUNG: Yousif T. Ahmeds Gedichtband konfrontiert dich mit Fluchterfahrung, (sexueller) Gewalt, Rassismus und den Auswirkungen von psychischen Erkrankungen.

No Longer Human Book Description:

The poignant and fascinating story of a young man who is caught between the breakup of the traditions of a northern Japanese aristocratic family and the impact of Western ideas. Portraying himself as a failure, the protagonist of Osamu Dazai's No Longer Human narrates a seemingly normal life even while he feels himself incapable of understanding human beings. Oba Yozo's attempts to reconcile himself to the world around him begin in early childhood, continue through high school, where he becomes a "clown" to mask his alienation, and eventually lead to a failed suicide attempt as an adult. Without sentimentality, he records the casual cruelties of life and its fleeting moments of human connection and tenderness.

English Studies Beyond the Center Book Description:

This book addresses the shape of English studies beyond the ‘center’ by analyzing how the discipline has developed, and by considering how lessons from this analysis relate to the discipline as a whole. The book aims to open a cross-disciplinary conversation about the nature of the English major in both non-Anglophone and Anglophone countries by addressing the tensions between language and literature pedagogy, the relevance of a focus on hyper-canonical Anglophone literature in a world of global Englishes, world literature, and multilingual students, and by reflecting on the necessary contingency and cross-purposes of blended literature and language classrooms. Many of the book’s points of discussion arise from the author’s experience as an English professor in Japan, where the particularities of English language and literature pedagogy raise significant challenges to Anglo-centric critical and pedagogical assumptions. English Studies Beyond the ‘Center’: Teaching Literature and the Future of Global English therefore argues that English literature must make a case for itself by understanding its place in a newly configured discipline. Issues discussed in the book include: English language and literature pedagogy in Japan The modes through which EFL and English literary studies converge and diverge Globalized English beyond the Anglo-American perspective English classroom practices, particularly in Japan

Global Powers of Horror Book Description:

Global Powers of Horror examines contemporary regimes of horror, into horror’s intricacies, and into their deployment on and through human bodies and body parts. To track horror’s work, what horror decomposes and, perhaps, recomposes, Debrix goes beyond the idea of the integrality and integrity of the human body and it brings the focus on parts, pieces, or fragments of bodies and lives. Looking at horror’s production of bodily fragments, both against and beyond humanity, the book is also about horror’s own attempt at re-forming or re-creating matter, from the perspective of post-human, non-human, and inhuman fragmentation. Through several contemporary instances of dismantling of human bodies and pulverization of body parts, this book makes several interrelated theoretical contributions. It works with contemporary post-(geo)political figures of horror—faces of concentration camp dwellers, body parts of victims of terror attacks, the outcome of suicide bombings, graphic reports of beheadings, re-compositions of melted and mingled remnants of non-human and human matter after 9/11—to challenge regimes of terror and security that seek to forcefully and ideologically reaffirm a biopolitics and thanatopolitics of human life in order to anchor today’s often devastating deployments of the metaphysics of substance. Critically enabling one to see how security and terror form a (geo)political continuum of violent mobilization, utilization, and often destruction of human and non-human bodies and lives, this book will be of interest to graduates and scholars of bio politics, international relations and security studies.

POLARITIES IN THE EVOLUTION OF HUMANITY Book Description:

‘The present age needs to understand that human beings must hold the balance between the two extremes, between the ahrimanic and the luciferic poles. People always tend to go in one direction... The Christ stands in the middle, holding the balance.’– Rudolf Steiner These eleven lectures were given in post-war Stuttgart against a backdrop of struggle and uncertainty – not only within society at large but also within the anthroposophical movement. Rudolf Steiner and his supporters were working to introduce ‘threefold’ social ideas and – given Steiner’s public profile – were coming under increasing personal and sometimes physical attack. Steiner responds to this turbulent situation by revealing the spiritual background to the forces of decline working in contemporary civilization. He speaks of retrogressive powers – spiritual beings referred to as luciferic or ahrimanic – that work directly into human culture, manifesting, for example, in what he refers to as the ‘initiation streams’ of Western secret societies, the Church-allied impulse of Jesuitism and the Bolshevik force of Leninism. The spiritual agents of adversity also encourage polarised thinking and false opposites such as East verses West, materialism and mysticism, or knowledge and belief. Only the threefold principle – represented by Christ – allows us to create a balance in the midst of these existential conflicts. This freshly-reworked translation is complemented with notes, an index and an introduction by Matthew Barton.
