Der erste Roman einer faszinierenden Reihe um die „Sieben Schwestern“. Maia ist die älteste von sechs Schwestern, die alle von ihrem Vater adoptiert wurden, als sie sehr klein waren. Sie lebt als Einzige noch auf dem herrschaftlichen Anwesen ihres Vaters am Genfer See, denn anders als ihre Schwestern, die es drängte, draußen in der Welt ein ganz neues Leben als Erwachsene zu beginnen, fand die eher schüchterne Maia nicht den Mut, ihre vertraute Umgebung zu verlassen. Doch das ändert sich, als ihr Vater überraschend stirbt und ihr einen Umschlag hinterlässt – und sie plötzlich den Schlüssel zu ihrer bisher unbekannten Vorgeschichte in Händen hält: Sie wurde in Rio de Janeiro in einer alten Villa geboren, deren Adresse noch heute existiert. Maia fasst den Entschluss, nach Rio zu fliegen, und an der Seite von Floriano Quintelas, eines befreundeten Schriftstellers, beginnt sie, das Rätsel ihrer Herkunft zu ergründen. Dabei stößt sie auf eine tragische Liebesgeschichte in der Vergangenheit ihrer Familie, und sie taucht ein in das mondäne Paris der Jahrhundertwende, wo einst eine schöne junge Frau aus Rio einem französischen Bildhauer begegnete. Und erst jetzt fängt Maia an zu begreifen, wer sie wirklich ist und was dies für ihr weiteres Leben bedeutet ...

Feministische und queere Theorien sind mit ganz besonderen Figuren ausgestaltet: die »Sister« der zweiten Frauenbewegung, die »Cyborg« von Donna Haraway, das »Nomadic Subject« von Rosi Braidotti, die »New Mestiza« von Gloria Anzaldúa und die »Drag« von Judith Butler. Welche Funktionen erfüllen Begriffspersonen innerhalb von Genderdiskursen? Welche Wirkungen haben sie auf Leser_innen und Denker_innen? Und vor allem: Wo liegen die Potenziale dieser Figuren für Denken, Erkennen und politisches Handeln? Kirstin Mertlitsch zeigt auf, welche wissenschaftlichen Theorien und Schlüsselkonzepte queer-feministische Begriffspersonen verkörpern und ausagieren. Sie analysiert erstmals, in welchen rationalen, emotional-affektiven und körperlich-materiellen Dimensionen Wissen vermittelt und Erkenntnisprozesse ermöglicht werden.

Raina Telgemeier’s #1 New York Times bestselling, Eisner Award-winning companion to Smile! Raina can't wait to be a big sister. But once Amara is born, things aren't quite how she expected them to be. Amara is cute, but she's also a cranky, grouchy baby, and mostly prefers to play by herself. Their relationship doesn't improve much over the years, but when a baby brother enters the picture and later, something doesn't seem right between their parents, they realize they must figure out how to get along. They are sisters, after all. Raina uses her signature humor and charm in both present-day narrative and perfectly placed flashbacks to tell the story of her relationship with her sister, which unfolds during the course of a road trip from their home in San Francisco to a family reunion in Colorado.

The question of affect is central to critical theory, psychology, politics, and the entire range of the humanities; but no discipline, including psychoanalysis, has offered a theory of affect that would be rich enough to account for the delicacy and power, the evanescence and durability, the bodily rootedness and the cultural variability of human emotion. Silvan Tomkins (1911–1991) was one of the most radical and imaginative psychologists of the twentieth century. In Affect, Imagery, Consciousness, a four-volume work published over the last thirty years of his life, Tomkins developed an ambitious theory of affect steeped in cybernetics and systems theory as well as in psychoanalysis, ethology, and neuroscience. The implications of his conceptually daring and phenomenologically suggestive theory are only now—in the context of postmodernism—beginning to be understood. With Shame and Its Sisters, editors Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Adam Frank make available for the first time an engaging and accessible selection of Tomkins's work. Featuring intensive examination of several key affects, particularly shame and anger, this volume contains many of Tomkins's most haunting, diagnostically incisive, and theoretically challenging discussions. An introductory essay by the editors places Tomkins's work in the context of postwar information technologies and will prompt a reexamination of some of the underlying assumptions of recent critical work in cultural studies and other areas of the humanities. The text is also accompanied by a biographical sketch of Tomkins by noted psychologist Irving E. Alexander, Tomkins's longtime friend and collaborator.

Sisters is the first major history of the pivotal role played by nuns in the building of American society. Nuns were the first feminists, argues Fialka. They became the nation's first cadre of independent, professional women. Some nursed, some taught, and many created and managed new charitable organizations, including large hospitals and colleges. In the 1800s nuns moved west with the frontier, often starting the first hospitals and schools in immigrant communities. They provided aid and service in the Chicago fire, cared for orphans and prostitutes in the California Gold Rush and brought professional nursing skills to field hospitals run by both armies in the Civil War. Their work was often done in the face of intimidation from such groups as the Know Nothings and the Ku Klux Klan. In the 1900s they built the nation's largest private school and hospital systems and brought the Catholic Church into the civil rights movement. As their numbers began to decline in the 1970s, many sisters were forced to take professional jobs as lawyers, probation workers, managers and hospital executives because their salaries were needed to support older nuns, many of whom lacked a pension system. Currently there are about 75,000 sisters in America, down from 204,000 in 1968. Their median age is sixty-nine. In Sisters, Fialka reveals the strength of the spiritual capital and the unprecedented reach of the caring institutions that religious women created in America.

"Fascinating, the way all great family stories are fascinating."—Robert Gottlieb, New York Times Book Review This is the story of a close, loving family splintered by the violent ideologies of Europe between the world wars. Jessica was a Communist; Debo became the Duchess of Devonshire; Nancy was one of the best-selling novelists of her day; beautiful Diana married the Fascist leader Sir Oswald Mosley; and Unity, a close friend of Hitler, shot herself in the head when England and Germany declared war. The Mitfords had style and presence and were mercilessly gifted. Above all, they were funny—hilariously and mercilessly so. In this wise, evenhanded, and generous book, Mary Lovell captures the vitality and drama of a family that took the twentieth century by storm and became, in some respects, its victims.
