Feminist research is informed by a history of breaking silences, of demanding that women’s voices be heard, recorded and included in wider intellectual genealogies and histories. This has led to an emphasis on voice and speaking out in the research endeavour. Moments of secrecy and silence are less often addressed. This gives rise to a number of questions. What are the silences, secrets, omissions and and political consequences of such moments? What particular dilemmas and constraints do they represent or entail? What are their implications for research praxis? Are such moments always indicative of voicelessness or powerlessness? Or may they also constitute a productive moment in the research encounter? Contributors to this volume were invited to reflect on these questions. The resulting chapters are a fascinating collection of insights into the research process, making an important contribution to theoretical and empirical debates about epistemology, subjectivity and identity in research. Researchers often face difficult dilemmas about who to represent and how, what to omit and what to include. This book explores such questions in an important and timely collection of essays from international scholars.

African audiences and users are rapidly gaining in importance and increasingly targeted by global media companies, social media platforms and mobile phone operators. This is the first edited volume that addresses the everyday lived experiences of Africans in their interaction with different kinds of media: old and new, state and private, elite and popular, global and national, material and virtual. So far, the bulk of academic research on media and communication in Africa has studied media through the lens of media-state relations, thereby adopting liberal democracy as the normative ideal and examining the potential contribution of African media to development and democratization. Focusing instead on everyday media culture in a range of African countries, this volume contributes to the broader project of provincializing and decolonizing audience and internet studies.

Global and local contestations are not only gendered, they also raise important questions about agency and its practice and location in the twenty-first century. Silence and voice are being increasingly debated as sites of agency within feminist research on conflict and insecurity. Drawing on a wide range of feminist approaches, this volume examines the various ways that silence and voice have been contested in feminist research, and their impact on how agency is understood and performed, particularly in situations of conflict and insecurity. The collection makes an important and timely contribution to interdisciplinary feminist theorizing of silence, voice and agency in global politics. Interrogating the intellectual landscape of existing debates about agency, silence and voice in an increasingly unequal and conflict-ridden world, the contributors to this volume challenge the dominant narratives of agency based on voice or speech alone as a necessary precondition for understanding or negotiating agency or empowerment. Many of the authors have engaged in field research in both the Global South and North and bring in-depth and diverse gendered case studies to their analysis, focusing on the increasing importance of examining silence as well as voice for understanding gender and agency in an increasingly embattled and complicated world. This book will contribute to and deepen existing discussions of agency, silence and voice in development, culture and gender studies, political economy, postcolonial and de-colonial scholarship as well as in the field of International Relations.

This edited collection explores the dramatic transformations in intimate life that have taken place in Ireland in recent years. A new multiculturalism, availability of divorce and the introduction of civil partnership for same sex couples all herald significant changes in Irish life. Divorce and solo parenthood are no longer the taboos they once were. Women participate in employment after marriage in far greater numbers than ever before. Yet certain patterns of intimate life remain entrenched. Abortions must still be obtained abroad. Lengthy separations are required before divorce can be formalised. An emphasis on traditional family forms underpins people's experiences of infertility and assisted reproduction. The contemporary landscape for intimate life in Ireland offers fascinating insights into new and old family forms, the influence of the media, and changing cultural and social norms. This edited book explores these changes in a collection of chapters by leading scholars showcasing cutting edge theory and research.

Als Kind wegen ihres unglaublichen Übergewichts gehänselt und von der eigenen Mutter abgelehnt, findet Joan Foster in ihrer ebenso dicken wie skurrilen Tante Lou eine Verbündete. Als diese stirbt, hinterläßt sie Joan ein Vermögen. Doch der Anspruch auf das Erbe ist an eine Bedingung geknüpft: Joan muß 40 Kilo abnehmen, um in den Genuss des Geldes zu kommen. Mit gewohnt spitzer Feder setzt Margaret Atwood in »Lady Orakel« zu einem Rundumschlag gegen menschliche Schwächen an und entwirft wie nebenbei das Porträt einer ganz und gar ungewöhnlichen Frau auf der Suche nach ihrer Identität.

Jahrelang sorgte Kate Millett durch ihre politischen Aktivitäten, ihr öffentliches Bekenntnis zur weiblichen Homosexualität und ihre Bücher, die zu »Bibeln« der Feministinnen wurden, für Schlagzeilen. Auf dem Höhepunkt ihres Erfolges wurde sie von einer »seelischen Mißstimmung« erfaßt. Was dann folgte, war die Psychiatrierung eines Menschen: seine Zwangseinweisung in Kliniken, Selbstmordversuche – ein dreizehn Jahre lang andauerndes Martyrium. Kate Millett schildert in ergreifender Weise ihre Odyssee durch die Psychiatrie.Die amerikanische Presse urteilte: Seit Ken Keseys »Einer flog über das Kuckucksnest« hat es in der Literatur keinen solchen Aufschrei gegen psychiatrische Einrichtungen und Praktiken gegeben.
