When The Moon Waxes Red

In this new collection of her provocative essays on Third World art and culture, Trinh Minh-ha offers new challenges to Western regimes of knowledge. Bringing to her subjects an acute sense of the many meanings of the marginal, she examines topics such as Asian and African texts, the theories of Barthes, questions of spectatorship, the enigmas of art, and the perils of anthropology. When the Moon Waxes Red is an extended argument against reductive analyses, even those that appear politically adroit. The multiply-hyphenated peoples of color are not simply placed in a duality between two cultural heritages; throughout, Trinh describes the predicament of having to live "a difference that has no name and too many names already." She argues for multicultural revision of knowledge so that a new politics can transform reality rather than merely ideologize it. By rewriting the always emerging, already distorted place of struggle, such work seeks to "beat the master at his own game."

In this new work, renowned feminist filmmaker and postcolonial theorist Trinh T. Minh-ha offers a lyrical, philosophical meditation on the global state of endless war and the violence inflicted by the imperial need to claim victory. She discusses the rise of the police state as linked, for example, to U.S. military intervention in Iraq and Afghanistan, or to China's occupation of Tibet, examining legacies of earlier campaigns and the residual effects of the war on terror. She also takes up the shifting dynamics of peoples' resistance to acts of militarism and surveillance as well as social media and its capacity to inform and mobilize citizens around the world. At once an engaging treatise and a creative gesture, Lovecidal probes the physical and psychic conditions of the world and shows us a society that is profoundly heartsick. Taking up with those who march both as and for the oppressed--who walk with the disappeared to help carry them forward--Trinh T. Minh-ha engages the spiritual and affective dimensions of a civilization organized around the rubrics of nonstop governmental subjugation, economic austerity, and highly technologized military conflict. In doing so, she clears a path for us to walk upon. Along with our every step, the world of the disappeared lives on.

Black Feminist Anthropology

In the discipline's early days, anthropologists by definition were assumed to be white and male. Women and black scholars were relegated to the field's periphery. From this marginal place, white feminist anthropologists have successfully carved out an acknowledged intellectual space, identified as feminist anthropology. Unfortunately, the works of black and non-western feminist anthropologists are rarely cited, and they have yet to be respected as significant shapers of the direction and transformation of feminist anthropology. In this volume, Irma McClaurin has collected-for the first time-essays that explore the role and contributions of black feminist anthropologists. She has asked her contributors to disclose how their experiences as black women have influenced their anthropological practice in Africa, the Caribbean, and the United States, and how anthropology has influenced their development as black feminists. Every chapter is a unique journey that enables the reader to see how scholars are made. The writers present material from their own fieldwork to demonstrate how these experiences were shaped by their identities. Finally, each essay suggests how the author's field experiences have influenced the theoretical and methodological choices she has made throughout her career. Not since Diane Wolf's Feminist Dilemmas in the Field or Hortense Powdermaker's Stranger and Friend have we had such a breadth of women anthropologists discussing the critical (and personal) issues that emerge when doing ethnographic research.

Black Women Writing and Identity represents an extraordinary achievement in this field, taking our understanding of identity, location and representation to new levels.

Out There addresses the theme of cultural marginalization - the process wherebyvarious groups are excluded from access to and participation in the dominant culture. It engagesfundamental issues raised by attempts to define such concepts as mainstream, minority, and "other,"and opens up new ways of thinking about culture and representation. All of the texts deal withquestions of representation in the broadest sense, encompassing not just the visual but also thesocial and psychological aspects of cultural identity.Included are important theoretical writings byHomi Bhabha, Helene Cixous, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, and Monique Wittig. Their work isjuxtaposed with essays on more overtly personal themes, often autobiographical, by Gloria Anzaldua,Bell Hooks, and Richard Rodriguez, among others.This rich anthology brings together voices from manydifferent marginalized groups - groups that are often isolated from each other as well as from thedominant culture. It joins issues of gender, race, sexual preference, and class in one forum butwithout imposing a false unity on the diverse cultures represented. Each piece in the book subtlychanges the way every other piece is read.While several essays focus on specific issues in art, suchas John Yau's piece on Wilfredo Lam in the Museum of Modern Art, or James Clifford's on collectingart, others draw from debates in literature, film, and critical theory to provide a much broadercontext than is usually found in work aimed at an art audience. Topics range from the functions oflanguage to the role of public art in the city, from gay pornography to the meanings of black hairstyles.Out There also includes essays by Rosalyn Deutsche, Richard Dyer, Kobena Mercer, Edward Said,Gayatri Spivak, Gerald Vizenor and Simon Watney, as well as by the editors.Copublished with the NewMuseum of Contemporary Art, New York Distributed by The MIT Press.
