  • Antidiets of the Avant-Garde: From Futurist Cooking to Eat Art

    (2010)

    Book
    University of Otago

    Caringly dismantling the misunderstanding that has often limited modernist aesthetics—namely, that avant-garde art is to be ascetic and skeptical of bodily experience—Cecilia Novero’s impressive study takes a more playfully Nietzschean approach by demonstrating that the European avant-garde cannot properly be understood without appreciating the role that allegories and material practices of incorporation play within it. This book is a delicious morsel. Gerhard Richter, University of California-Davis The history of taste has long harbored a repressed field of knowledge, that of cuisine, which had been metaphorized out of existence in traditional aesthetic theory. Today, as the culinary has finally found its place in theoretical and museological endeavors, certain works promise to become the foundation of a new, pluridisciplinary field that includes gastronomy. Among them is Antidiets of the Avant-Garde. It may be said that this book illuminates the culinary unconscious of our modernity. It is essential reading for all those interested in modern art, and for all those who love to eat. Allen S. Weiss, author of Feast and Folly: Cuisine, Intoxication, and the Poetics of the Sublime In this interdisciplinary study, Novero provides a detailed analysis of how food and food-related activities provide rich context for explorations of the blurring of boundaries between art and daily life. Choice Antidiets is certainly successful in capturing both the avant-garde’s interdiscipliarity and its multimediality. And scholars of the avant-garde will discover in Antidiets a unique history not yet told in any national or international context. Novero’s monograph on the intersection of food, the avant-garde and the consuming human body achieves a great deal. German Quarterly In her sophisticated and rigorous study, Cecilia Novero provides readers with a novel understanding of the objectives and achievements but also the contradictions and shortcomings of twentieth-century avant-garde movements. It will be difficult for future avant-garde research to ignore this study. Monatshefte Simultaneously accessible and thought provoking. Parallax

  • China on Video: Smaller Screen Realities

    Voci, Paola (2010)

    Book
    University of Otago

    China On Video is the first in-depth study that examines smaller-screen realities and the important role they play not only in the fast-changing Chinese mediascape, but also more broadly in the practice of experimental and non-mainstream cinema. At the crossroads of several disciplines—film, media, new media, media anthropology, visual arts, contemporary China area studies, and cultural studies--this book reveals the existence of a creative, humorous, but also socially and politically critical "China on video", which locates itself outside of the intellectual discourse surrounding both auteur cinema and digital art.

  • Gitksan phonotactics

    Brown, Jason (2010)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    This work presents an analysis of the phonotactics of Gitksan, a Tsimshianic language spoken in northern British Columbia, Canada, and is based on an electronic lexical database of the language compiled by the author. The results of this study reveal that Gitksan exhibits several gradient phonological restrictions on consonantal cooccurrence that hold over the lexicon. There is a gradient restriction on homorganic consonants, and within homorganic pairs, there is a gradient restriction on major class and manner features. It is claimed that these restrictions are due to a generalized Obligatory Contour Principle (OCP) effect in the grammar, and that this effect can be relativized to subsidiary features, such as place, manner, etc. It is argued that these types of effects are most naturally analyzed with the system of weighted constraints employed in Harmonic Grammar. In addition to these dissimilatory effects, it is also claimed that Gitksan exhibits a gradient assimilatory effect among specific consonants. This type of effect is rare, and is unexpected given the general conditions of dissimilation in the language. One such effect is the frequency of both pulmonic pairs of consonants and ejective pairs of consonants, which occur at rates higher than expected by chance. Another is the occurrence of uvular-uvular and velar-velar pairs of consonants, which also occur at rates higher than chance. This pattern is somewhat surprising, as there exists an overall gradient prohibition on cooccurring pairs of dorsal consonants. These assimilatory patterns are analyzed using the Agreement by Correspondence approach, which mandates that output correspondents agree for some phonological feature. The analysis presented in this work has implications for other areas of the phonology of Gitksan, and for phonological theory generally. These areas include the representation of laryngeal features and of the "guttural" class of consonants, the learnability of gradient patterns, and the role that constraints play in both dissimilatory and assimilatory effects.

  • Anti-consumption and Consumer Resistance: Concepts, concerns, conflicts, and convergence - ICAR/ NACRE 2010 Proceedings

    Lee, Michael; Roux, D; Cherrier, H; Cova, B (2010)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Consumer resistance and anti-consumption are without doubt topics of growing interest not only in consumer behaviour studies but also in the fields of sociology and cultural studies. Marseilles and the whole Mediterranean Basin appears to be a relevant place to discuss these topics. Indeed, as Thierry Fabre a major thinker from Marseilles coined, “the American way of life, which defines a consumption standard that exists at a global scale, is not our destiny. Markets and exchanges may have always been at the heart of Mediterranean societies, but money has never been our main value. Trading things involves first and foremost trading with other people, and we feel that the economic domain continues to be subordinated to the human one”. The Mediterranean way of life has not surrendered to this new world order. In the wake of the late Michel de Certeau, we can state that whereas certain pundits assert that an economic logic is the best way to organise life, assigning everyone and everything a place and a role, Mediterranean people react by silently extracting themselves from this conformist equation. They seek to invent their own daily lives through the way they do things, using subtle ruses and tactical resistance to divert products and codes for their own benefit, re-appropriating space and the utilisation thereof. The mission of Euromed Management takes into account of this Mediterranean way of thinking. Euromed Management not only has a vision of a business school, but it has indeed rather an understanding and interpretation of an economic reality. The Euro-Mediterranean history and tradition, that is one of multiple appearances and different truths, gives today a rich perspective to what is identified as the Euro-Mediterranean region. Marseilles and its region, crossroads of different worlds and a European capital city, has acquired a truly European sociology with a typical managerial and social thinking. The purpose of this first symposium hosted by Euromed Management is to provide a forum for international researchers sharing interest on Anti-consumption and Consumer Resistance, in order to identify redundancies and differences between these two topics. While they are still in the early stages of a growing interest, scarce research has examined their various conflicts and/or convergences in accounting for consumers’ ways of opposing, escaping or altering consumption. Concepts, frameworks, theories and fields settings that can advance their study and fresh examination of their tensions will be debated.

  • Evolution, literature, and film: A reader

    Boyd, Brian (2010)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    Proposed first volume of “classic” essays in the emerging field of evolutionary approaches to literature and art, selected co-editors (Joseph Carroll and Jonathan Gottschall), selected and edited texts, co-wrote introduction, contributed two of own essays, compiled index. Helped select background essays from biologists (Darwin, Dawkins, E.O. Wilson, etc.), psychologists (Pinker, Buss), anthropologists, evolutionary theorists of art. Selected all film material, and edited two most demanding literary contributions for length and style. Major intervention in direction of literary studies, from major university press. Already used as course textbook, and cited heavily in research (up to 20 separate articles cited in a single recent MA thesis). From reviews: “first-rate” (Choice); “goes beyond what one might hope for. . . . as Boyd points out . . . what Brian Boyd deems a multilevel approach which he similarly exhibits in his chapter on Art Spiegelman and an experimental visual work, a graphic exquisite corpse in which Spiegelman participated along with 68 other comic artists. Here and elsewhere, the editors are to be commended for prominently displaying the limit cases, the “exception[s] that prove the rule,” instead of merely plucking the low-hanging fruit of stories in which characters act transparently and facilely in line with evolutionary expectations. . . . a galvanizing set of blueprints. . . . the state-of-the-art in a nascent field.” Tim Horvath, Evolution and Human Behavior 32 (2011).

  • The justice sector afterthought: Witness Protection in Africa

    Mahony, Christopher (2010)

    Book
    The University of Auckland Library

    This book seeks to address the frictions between protecting the rights of accused persons and protecting the physical and psychological wellbeing of witnesses in Africa. Developed states are still attempting to refine the weighing of these two public goods. The African challenge is complicated by poor capacity and integrity in the justice sector, as well as by lower living standards. These issues commonly cause justice inefficiencies which impede both witness protection and the rights of the accused. While the latter are critical to the integrity of the criminal justice process, witness protection is often the essential component of the successful prosecution of organised crime. Witness protection`s importance is tied to African states` growing willingness to address the phenomena of organised crime. The book addresses witness protection in South Africa as well as initiatives to create protection programmes in Kenya, Uganda and Sierra Leone. It also examines witness protection at the International Criminal Court (ICC), the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) and the Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL). Its interpretation of witness protection is wide and includes sensitive investigatory, prosecutorial and judicial practices as well as relocation and identity change.
