Vulnerability and resistance have often been seen as opposites, with the assumption that vulnerability requires protection and the strengthening of paternalistic power at the expense of collective resistance. Focusing on political movements and cultural practices in different global locations, including Turkey, Palestine, France, and the former Yugoslavia, the contributors to Vulnerability in Resistance articulate an understanding of the role of vulnerability in practices of resistance. They consider how vulnerability is constructed, invoked, and mobilized within neoliberal discourse, the politics of war, resistance to authoritarian and securitarian power, in LGBTQI struggles, and in the resistance to occupation and colonial violence. The essays offer a feminist account of political agency by exploring occupy movements and street politics, informal groups at checkpoints and barricades, practices of self-defense, hunger strikes, transgressive enactments of solidarity and mourning, infrastructural mobilizations, and aesthetic and erotic interventions into public space that mobilize memory and expose forms of power. Pointing to possible strategies for a feminist politics of transversal engagements and suggesting a politics of bodily resistance that does not disavow forms of vulnerability, the contributors develop a new conception of embodiment and sociality within fields of contemporary power.

Selbstliebe statt Perfektionismus In einer Welt, in der die Furcht zu versagen zur zweiten Natur geworden ist, erscheint Verletzlichkeit als gefährlich. Doch das Gegenteil ist der Fall: Die renommierte Psychologin Brené Brown zeigt, dass Verletzlichkeit der Ort ist, wo Liebe, Zugehörigkeit, Freude und Kreativität entstehen. Unter ihrer behutsamen Anleitung erforschen wir unsere Ängste und entwickeln eine machtvolle neue Vision, die uns ermutigt, Großes zu wagen.

Anmerkungen zu einer performativen Theorie der Versammlung

Die »Politik der Straße« hat Hochkonjunktur, wirft aber auch Fragen auf. Sind Versammlungen als Ausdruck der Souveränität des Volkes aus radikaldemokratischer Perspektive zu begrüßen oder geben sie Anlass zur Sorge vor der Herrschaft des »Mobs«? Und wer ist überhaupt »das Volk«? Judith Butler geht den Dynamiken und Taktiken öffentlicher Versammlungen unter den derzeit herrschenden ökonomischen und politischen Bedingungen auf den Grund. Fluchtpunkt dieses hochpolitischen Buches ist eine Ethik des gewaltlosen Widerstands in einer gefährdeten Welt, in der die Grundlagen solidarischen Handelns allmählich zerfallen oder zerstört werden.

Vulnerability is an essential but also an intriguing ambiguous part of the human condition. This book con-ceptualizes vulnerability to be a fundamental threat and deficit and at the same time to be a powerful resource for transformation.The exploration is undertaken in multidisciplinary perspectives and approaches the human condition in fruitful conversations with medical, psychological, legal, theological, political and philosophical investiga-tions of vulnerability.The multidisciplinary approach opens the space for a broad variety of deeply interrelated topics. Thus, vulnerability is analyzed with respect to diverse aspects of human and social life, such as violence and power, the body and social institutions. Theologically questions of sin and redemption and eventually the nature of the Divine are taken up. Throughout the book phenomenological descriptions are combined with necessary conceptual clarifications. The contributions seek to illuminate the relation between vulnerability as a fundamental unavoidable condition and contingent actualizations related to specific dangers and risks. The core thesis of the book can be seen within its multi-perspectivity: A sound concept of vulnerability is key to a realistic, that is to say neither negative nor illusionary anthropology, to an honest post-theistic understanding of God and eventually to a deeply humanistic understanding of social life.

Kritik der ethischen Gewalt

Im November 2002 hat Judith Butler mit überwältigendem Erfolg die Adorno-Vorlesungen an der Universität Frankfurt gehalten, die nun in einer deutlich erweiterten Fassung als Taschenbuch erscheinen. In ihrer Kritik der ethischen Gewalt geht sie der Frage nach, wie man angesichts einer Theorie des Subjekts, dessen Entstehungsbedingungen sich nie restlos klären lassen, dennoch die Möglichkeit von Verantwortung und Rechenschaft bewahren kann. In Auseinandersetzung mit Adorno, Cavarrero, Foucault, Lévinas und der Psychoanalyse zeigt Butler, daß jede dieser Theorien etwas ethisch Bedeutsames enthält, das sich aus den Grenzen ergibt, die jedem Versuch gezogen sind, Rechenschaft von sich selbst abzulegen: Noch in demjenigen, das wir »ethisches Scheitern« nennen, steckt eine ethische Wertigkeit und Bedeutsamkeit, und die Frage der Ethik erscheint genau an den Grenzen unserer Systeme der Verständlichkeit. »Mit dem Begriff der ›ethischen Gewalt‹ legt Butler den moralphilosophischen Kern von Adornos Denken frei.« Die literarische Welt

Laufen lernt man nur durch Hinfallen

Wahre innere Stärke erwächst nicht aus Siegen, sondern aus Niederlagen: Gerade zu straucheln und hinzufallen, birgt die Chance für inneres Wachstum und weist uns den Weg zu Weisheit, Hoffnung und einem tieferen Lebenssinn. Die US-amerikanische Starpsychologin Brené Brown erforscht seit vielen Jahren die Gesetzmäßigkeiten innerer Stärke. Anschaulich und anhand vieler Beispiele beschreibt sie den Entwicklungsprozess, der uns in Krisenzeiten positiv formt: Wir lernen, mit Scham umzugehen. Uns trotz widriger Umstände als wertvoll zu empfinden. Gehen das Wagnis ein, uns in unserer Verletzlichkeit zu zeigen. Entwickeln den Mut, uns über die eigenen Grenzen hinauszuwagen und unser Leben aktiv zu gestalten – und sind schließlich stärker als je zuvor.

Brené Brown, erfolgreiche Powerfrau, erlebt einen Zusammenbruch, den sie ihr "spirituelles Erwachen" nennt. Sie geht auf Spurensuche in Sachen Perfektionismus: Was treibt uns an, immer besser und effektiver werden zu wollen? Warum schämen wir uns so, wenn wir trotz größter Anstrengungen den an uns gestellten Anforderungen nie gerecht werden? Browns überraschende Erkenntnis: Perfektion entfremdet! Es ist unsere Unvollkommenheit, die uns mit uns selbst und anderen verbindet und das Leben vollkommen macht.

Health in Megacities and Urban Areas

Diverse driving forces, processes and actors are responsible for different trends in the development of megacities and large urban areas. Under the dynamics of global change, megacities are themselves changing: On the one hand they are prone to increasing socio-economic vulnerability due to pronounced poverty, socio-spatial and political fragmentation, sometimes with extreme forms of segregation, disparities and conflicts. On the other hand megacities offer positive potential for global transformation, e.g. minimisation of space consumption, highly effective use of resources, efficient disaster prevention and health care options – if good strategies were developed. At present in many megacities and urban areas of the developing world and the emerging economies the quality of life is eroding. Most of the megacities have grown to unprecedented size, and the pace of urbanisation has far exceeded the growth of the necessary infrastructure and services. As a result, an increasing number of urban dwellers are left without access to basic amenities like clean drinking water, fresh air and safe food. Additionally, social inequalities lead to subsequent and significant intra-urban health inequalities and unbalanced disease burdens that can trigger conflict and violence between subpopulations. The guiding idea of our book lies in a multi- and interdisciplinary approach to the complex topic of megacities and urban health that can only be adequately understood when different disciplines share their knowledge and methodological tools to work together. We hope that the book will allow readers to deepen their understanding of the complex dynamics of urban and megacity populations through the lens of public health, geographical and other research perspectives.

Biblical Porn

Affect, Labor, and Pastor Mark Driscoll's Evangelical Empire

Between 1996 and 2014, Mark Driscoll's Mars Hill Church multiplied from its base in Seattle into fifteen facilities spread across five states with 13,000 attendees. When it closed, the church was beset by scandal, with former attendees testifying to spiritual abuse, emotional manipulation, and financial exploitation. In Biblical Porn Jessica Johnson examines how Mars Hill's congregants became entangled in processes of religious conviction. Johnson shows how they were affectively recruited into sexualized and militarized dynamics of power through the mobilization of what she calls "biblical porn"—the affective labor of communicating, promoting, and embodying Driscoll's teaching on biblical masculinity, femininity, and sexuality, which simultaneously worked as a marketing strategy, social imaginary, and biopolitical instrument. Johnson theorizes religious conviction as a social process through which Mars Hill's congregants circulated and amplified feelings of hope, joy, shame, and paranoia as affective value that the church capitalized on to grow at all costs.

The book covers in detail the principles and practices of conventional plant breeding as well as newer and recent biotechnological tolls such as marker assisted selection and transgenic crops. The book is suitable for use as an advanced text. A basic knowledge of plant pathogens, insect-pests and their genetics is assumed. In addition, the book can be used as reference book by plant pathologists, entomologists and geneticists engaged in developing germplasm, with resistance to biotic stresses. Attempts have been made to draw specific examples from as many different crop plants and their harmful parasites as possible, and an extensive reference list provides access to the original literature.

Birth, Life and Death of Dopaminergic Neurons in the Substantia Nigra

This book provides a unique and timely multidisciplinary synthesis of our current knowledge of the anatomy, pharmacology, physiology and pathology of the substantia nigra pars compacta (SNc) dopaminergic neurons. The single chapters, written by top scientists in their fields, explore the life cycle of dopaminergic neurons from their birth to death, the cause of Parkinson's disease, the second most common and disabling condition in the elderly population. Nevertheless, the intracellular cascade of events leading to dopamine cell death is still unknown and, consequently, treatment is symptomatic rather than preventive. The mechanisms by which alterations cause neuronal death, new therapeutic approaches and the latest evidence of a possible de novo neurogenesis in the SNc are reviewed and singled out in different chapters. This book bridges basic science and clinical practice and will prepare the reader for the next few years, which will surely be eventful in terms of the progress of dopamine research.
