This book examines the notion of identity through a multitude of interdisciplinary approaches. It collects current thinking from international scholars spanning philosophy, history, science, cultural studies, media, translation, performance, and marketing, each with an outlook informed by their own subject and a mission to reflect on a theme that is greater than the sum of its parts. This project was born out of a dynamic international and interdisciplinary pedagogical experience. While by no means a teaching guide or textbook, the authors’ experience of sharing the module with their students reinforced the fluidity and elusiveness of identity and its persistent facility to escape disciplinary classification. Identity as a subject for analysis and discussion, and as a lived reality for all of us, has never been more complex and multi-faceted. Each chapter of this singular collection provides a lens through which the concept of identity can be viewed and as the book progresses it moves from ideas based in disciplinary contexts – biology, psychiatry, philosophy, to those developed in multi and inter disciplinary contexts such as area studies, feminism and queer studies.

Seit ihrer Geburt lebt Pearl im Auto, sie vorne, ihre Ausreißer-Mutter auf der Rückbank. Vierzehn Jahre stehen die beiden jetzt schon am Rande eines Trailerparks irgendwo in Florida. Draußen vor der Windschutzscheibe ist die Welt den Waffen verfallen: Kinder wachsen mit Pistolen statt Haustieren auf, Schießübungen immer und überall, mal Alligatoren, mal den Fluss, mal Polizisten im Visier, und sonntags sitzt man beim Gottesdienst mit der geschulterten Schrotflinte in der ersten Reihe. Doch im Ford Mercury wirken andere Kräfte, hier lernt Pearl das Träumen. Bis mit Eli ein Mann auftaucht, der das Herz der Mutter stielt ... Gun Love liest sich wie ein Trip. Jennifer Clement schreibt vom Band zwischen Mutter und Tochter und dem Waffenwahnsinn ihrer Heimat, sie erzählt in strahlenden Bildern eine Geschichte, in der Liebe und Gewalt, Magie und Fakt, Sorge und Freude haltlos ineinander fallen. Das literarische Stimmungsbild einer ganzen Nation.

Die Klimakatastrophe, die wir jetzt erleben, hätte verhindert werden können. Vor dreißig Jahren gab es die Chance, den Planeten zu retten – doch sie wurde verspielt. Die Erde, wie wir sie heute kennen, ist bereits verloren. Nathaniel Rich schildert in dieser dramatischen Reportage, wie eine Gruppe von Wissenschaftlern Ende der siebziger Jahre erstmals erkennt, dass sich die Erderwärmung desaströs beschleunigt, aber auch, welche politischen Maßnahmen notwendig wären. Aber kurz vor dem Durchbruch scheitern sie. Eine historische Reportage, die aktueller nicht sein könnte: Wir bekommen in den kommenden Jahren das zu spüren, was damals versäumt wurde – so wie unser gegenwärtiges Scheitern das Schicksal des Planeten in naher Zukunft besiegelt.
