Objects And Bodies: Some Phenomenological Implications Of Knowledge And Practice In Mayotte, Brad Weiss 2019 College of William and Mary

Objects And Bodies: Some Phenomenological Implications Of Knowledge And Practice In Mayotte, Brad Weiss

Brad Weiss

Grounded in collective interactions that are often quite contentious, knowledge is formulated in the world (objectified), and tangibly experienced (embodied) by the agents engaged in these interactions. As a means of acting on the world in order to transform it, knowledge is implicitly powerful. Yet, the consequences of that power are only realized through the context in which they are carried out. Thus, the ambiguous character of such knowledge must be evaluated by social agents in the course of their activities. By drawing attention to these dimensions of knowledge as power which enable social agents to act on, and so ...


In Tastes, Lost And Found: Remembering The Real Flavor Of Fat Pork, Brad Weiss 2019 College of William and Mary

In Tastes, Lost And Found: Remembering The Real Flavor Of Fat Pork, Brad Weiss

Brad Weiss

"Fat". In contemporary society the word never fails to elicit powerful emotions, especially as it relates to bodily health and appearance. But fat is a noun as well as an adjective and has a cultural life outside of its relationship with the human body. By focusing on the complex physical and experiential dimensions of this problematic substance, Fat: Culture and Materiality breaks new ground in the study of the relationship between culture and the material world.

With contributions from well-respected international scholars, this innovative and interdisciplinary collection will appeal to a wide range of readers interested in fat and its ...


Chronic Mobb Asks A Blessing: Apocalyptic Hip-Hop In A Time Of Crisis, Brad Weiss 2019 College of William and Mary

Chronic Mobb Asks A Blessing: Apocalyptic Hip-Hop In A Time Of Crisis, Brad Weiss

Brad Weiss

Child laborers in South Asia, child soldiers in Sierra Leone and Uganda, Chinese youth playing computer games to earn virtual gold, youth involved in sex trafficking in the former Soviet republics and Thailand: these are just some of the young people featured in the news of late. The idea that young people are more malleable and the truisms that "youth are the future" or "children are our hope for the future" give news stories and scholarly accounts added meaning. To address how and why youth and children have come to seem so important to globalization, the contributors to this book ...


Food, Brad Weiss 2019 College of William and Mary

Food, Brad Weiss

Brad Weiss

The study of food is at once a classic theme in anthropological theorizing, as well as a burgeoning field in contemporary ethnography. Some of the earliest attempts to characterize culture, or identify the minimal, “elementary” features of social life, drew inspiration from a consideration of food prohibitions. In the 19th century, and again in the middle of the 20th century, the text of Leviticus provided fodder for a host of theories—historical, symbolic, and materialist—that attempted to account for the kosher food laws this text details. The study of these same prohibitions laid the foundation for a comparative anthropology ...

Welfare Of Non-Traditional Pets, Catherine A. Schuppli, David Fraser, H. J. Bacon 2019 University of British Columbia

Welfare Of Non-Traditional Pets, Catherine A. Schuppli, David Fraser, H. J. Bacon

David Fraser, PhD

The keeping of non-traditional or ‘exotic’ pets has been growing in popularity worldwide. In addition to the typical welfare challenges of keeping more traditional pet species like dogs and cats, ensuring the welfare of non-traditional pets is complicated by factors such as lack of knowledge, difficulties meeting requirements in the home and where and how animals are obtained. This paper uses examples of different species to highlight three major welfare concerns: ensuring that pets under our care i) function well biologically, ii) are free from negative psychological states and able to experience normal pleasures, and iii) lead reasonably natural lives ...

Extended Commentary: Administrative Failures: The Immigration Detention Centers And Abu Ghraib Prison, Allison G.S. Knox 2019 University of North Georgia

Extended Commentary: Administrative Failures: The Immigration Detention Centers And Abu Ghraib Prison, Allison G.S. Knox

International Social Science Review

The Trump Administration’s immigration policy regarding the separation of families at the border has horrified Americans. Numerous reports have also been published to argue that the detention centers are mismanaged with allegations of potential human rights abuses taking place. The issues surrounding the detention centers are similar to another scandal Americans have already seen: the human rights abuses that took place in Iraq at the Abu Ghraib Prison. At the core of this issue is likely an administrative failure following the ill-fated policy that many say is immoral and unjust.
