This multidisciplinary collective volume advances the scholarly discussion on the origins of Islam. It simultaneously focuses on three domains: texts, social contexts, and ideological developments relevant for the study Islam's beginnings - taking the latter expression in its broadest possible sense. The intersections of these domains need to be examined afresh in order to obtain a clear picture of the concurrent phenomena that collectively enabled both the gradual emergence of a new religious identity and also the progressive delimitation of its initially fuzzy boundaries.

A guide to retelling your personal, family, and cultural stories to transform your life, your relationships, and the world • Applies the latest neuroscience research on memory, brain mapping, and brain plasticity to the field of narrative therapy • Details mind-mapping and narrative therapy techniques that use story to change behavior patterns in ourselves, our relationships, and our communities • Explores how narrative therapy can help replace dysfunctional cultural stories with ones that build healthier relationships with each other and the planet We are born into a world of stories that quickly shapes our behavior and development without our conscious awareness. By retelling our personal, family, and cultural narratives we can transform the patterns of our own lives as well as the patterns that shape our communities and the larger social worlds in which we interact. Applying the latest neuroscience research on memory, brain mapping, and brain plasticity to the field of narrative therapy, Lewis Mehl-Madrona and Barbara Mainguy explain how the brain is specialized in the art of story-making and story-telling. They detail mind-mapping and narrative therapy techniques that use story to change behavior patterns in ourselves, our relationships, and our communities. They explore studies that reveal how memory works through story, how the brain recalls things in narrative rather than lists, and how our stories modify our physiology and facilitate health or disease. Drawing on their decades of experience in narrative therapy, the authors examine the art of helping people to change their story, providing brain-mapping practices to discover your inner storyteller and test if the stories you are living are functional or dysfunctional, healing or destructive. They explain how to create new characters and new stories, ones that excite you, help you connect with yourself, and deepen your intimate connections with others. Detailing how shared stories and language form culture, the authors also explore how narrative therapy can help replace dysfunctional cultural stories with those that offer templates for healthier relationships with each other and the planet.

This book critically examines the postcolonial canon, questioning both the disproportionate attention to texts written in English and their overuse in attempts to understand the postcolonial condition. The author addresses the non-representation of Indian literature in theory, and the inadequacy of generalizing postcolonial experiences and subjectivities based on literature produced in one language (English). It argues that, while postcolonial scholarship has successfully challenged Eurocentrism, it is now time to extend the dimensions beyond Anglophone and Francophone literatures to include literatures in other languages such as Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Tagalog, and Swahili.

This volume is an exploration of the future of narrative discourse. The authors have identified six potential paths, drawing patterns of narrative and visual, pedagogy and possibility. The volume begins with Tales of the Digital Self. By telling stories we define ourselves. This struggle to understand who and what we are is even more amplified on the Web where identity is almost liquid. The authors in the second section picture how stories will be told in the future. In Pixels of Heroes and Heroines, we reconnect the future of narrative discourse to its literary roots. Although it is important to consider the forms narratives will take in the future, it is equally important to consider how these stories will be taught. This is the issue authors take up in Stories from Wired Desktops. Chapters move into the realm of the political in Views of Techno-Identity and Virtual Spaces. The volume concludes with the chapters in Critical Reflections on Project UNLOC.

This book seeks to document the constitution of bodies of knowledge on South Asia spanning two centuries (19th-20th), by providing a genealogy of the institutionalisation and transformations occurring in South Asian studies across Europe, India and the United States. Three specific points are addressed in the essays: the cognitive construction of South Asia in the American university system; the exploration of relations between national identities and respective traditions of research on South Asia in Great Britain and the United States throughout the 20th century; and a reflection on 'Subaltern studies', an Indian series born under the auspices of radical social history, which has now become a major entry point into postmodernist ideas.

Fifty years on from Ian Watt's pioneering study, The Rise of the novel, Jenny Mander brings together the work of bibliographers, literary scholars and socio-cultural historians to present a new European perspective on the development of the genre.�Remapping the rise of the European novel�investigates how prose fiction between 1500 and 1800 was simultaneously shaped by the development of the nation-state and by multiple crossings of geographical, cultural and linguistic boundaries. Drawing on evidence from France, Spain, Italy, Germany, Russia, Greece, as well as England, authors argue for a more inclusive history that identifies origins in different times and places, and trace how they interact or diverge. Through detailed case studies and bibliometric analyses, the authors explore the importance of continental and colonial travel in fashioning early-modern novelistic discourse, and examine how translation helps to disseminate 'novel' fictions. Discussion of popularity and pleasure - topics often excluded from traditional histories of the novel- sheds new light on the ways we think about the relationship between literary and social history.

Through ethnographic research with students, this book contends that many composition teachers' training in critical theory may lead them to misread implicit social meanings in working class, minority, and immigrant students' writing and thinking. The author examines how the local perspectives and discursive strategies of students from these backgrounds often complicate the translation of these theories to practice. The author offers concrete assignments and curriculum design as well as reflections on the process of the teaching approaches and discussion of student's writing projects.

Much of the theory underlying technical communication, rhetoric, composition, and college English in general comes from a decidedly socialist/Marxist perspective, ones that espouses strong anti-Capitalist, anti-competitive statements. While members of the academy have learned much about cultural artifacts and practices from these methodologies and critiques, they are also disenfranchised from the larger world-view - free-market, competitive, and capitalistic. This volume, a collection of 11 scholarly essays, begins to fill this gap by asserting a theoretical and practical stance based on free-market mechanisms and behaviors. Through a variety of approaches - from broad argument to specific examples of market behaviors, from historical criticism to case studies - this collection makes the case that, despite fears expressed by numerous critics of capitalism, technical communication and rhetoric and composition retain all their force, rationale, and value when expressed in free-market terms. Specifically, the collection argues that writing disciplines have market value and that Marxist approaches to the fields are not capable of promoting this value. It follows, then, that participants in these fields need to begin viewing themselves as market-players instead of reactionaries. A second general argument is that markets are inherently rhetorical, meaning that they create information, are subject to socially constructed trends, persuade and communicate values and ideas. In other words, the market is a natural and logical domain for rhetorical study and participation. Finally, a third argument is that certain activities, distance education foremost among them, create value for these academic fields. If we see our fields as having market value, we do not need to view distance education as a threat to writing disciplines, but rather an opportunity for growth and development. Locke Carter, the editor and lead essayist, holds not only a PhD in Rhetoric from the University of Texas at Austin, but also an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.

North America is more a political and an economic invention than a place people call home. Nonetheless, the region shared by the United States and its closest neighbors, North America, is an intriguing frame for comparative American studies. Continental Divides is the first book to study the patterns of contact, exchange, conflict, and disavowal among cultures that span the borders of Canada, the United States, and Mexico. Rachel Adams considers a broad range of literary, filmic, and visual texts that exemplify cultural traffic across North American borders. She investigates how our understanding of key themes, genres, and periods within U.S. cultural study is deepened, and in some cases transformed, when Canada and Mexico enter the picture. How, for example, does the work of the iconic American writer Jack Kerouac read differently when his Franco-American origins and Mexican travels are taken into account? Or how would our conception of American modernism be altered if Mexico were positioned as a center of artistic and political activity? In this engaging analysis, Adams charts the lengthy and often unrecognized traditions of neighborly exchange, both hostile and amicable, that have left an imprint on North America’s varied cultures.

During the last two decades of the twentieth century, U.S. Latina writers have made a profound impact on American letters with fiction in both mainstream and regional venues. Following on the heels of this vibrant and growing body of work, New Latina Narrative offers the first in-depth synthesis and literary analysis of this transethnic genre. Focusing on the dynamic writing published in the 1980s and 1990s by Mexican American, Puerto Rican, Cuban American, and Domincan American women, New Latina Narrative illustrates how these writers have redefined the concepts of multiculturalism and diversity in American society. As participants in both mainstream and grassroots forms of multiculturalism, these new Latina narrativists have created a feminine space within postmodern ethnicity, disrupting the idealistic veneer of diversity with which publishers often market this fiction.In this groundbreaking study, author Ellen McCracken opens the conventional boundaries of Latino/a literary criticism, incorporating elements of cultural studies theory and contemporary feminism. Emphasizing the diversity within new Latina narrative, McCracken discusses the works of more than two dozen writers, including Julia Alvarez, Denise Ch�vez, Sandra Cisneros, Cristina Garcia, Graciela Lim�n, Demetria Mart�nez, Pat Mora, Cherr�e Moraga, Mary Helen Ponce, and Helena Mar�a Viramontes. She stresses such themes as the resignification of master narrative, the autobiographical self and collective identity, popular religiosity, subculture and transgression, and narrative harmony and dissonance. New Latina Narrative provides readers an enriched basis for reconceiving the overall Latino/a literary field and its relation to other contemporary literary and cultural trends. McCracken's original approach extends the Latina literary canon--both the works to be studied and the issues to be examined--resulting in a valuable work for all readers of women's studies, contemporary American literature, ethnic studies, communications, and sociology.
