Transcultural Subjectivity Beyond the Global/Local Divide – Towards a Transcultural Understanding of Mediated Subjectivity BRIAN CREECH AND ANANDAM KAVOORI INTRODUCTION Transcultural Media Studies conceptually divorce the study of media from a strictly territorial understanding of culture. Traditionally, such a perspective in- vestigates globalized modes of meaning-making alongside economic modes of international media production and distribution (King 1996). In one sense, trans- cultural media products offer modes of expression that reveal

Subjectivity in Translation PAUL STANDISH Je n’ai qu’une langue, ce n’est pas la mienne. I have only one language; it is not mine. JACQUES DERRIDA (1998: 1) In his little book on translation, Monolingualism of the Other; or, The Pros- thesis of Origin, Jacques Derrida makes this enigmatic statement: »I have only one language; it is not mine.« What do these two clauses mean? At first sight, they are puzzling, even self-contradictory: the opening affirma- tion of »I have« conflicts with ensuing the denial (»not mine«). Hence, the sentence raises

3. “My wayward brain”: Cerebral Subjectivity and Narrative Identity in the Neuro-Memoir Men ought to know that from the brain, and from the brain only, arise our pleasures, joy, laughter and jests, as well as our sorrows, pains, griefs, and tears. Through it, in particu- lar, we think, see, hear, and distinguish the ugly from the beautiful, the bad from the good, the pleasant from the unpleasant. Hippocrates, “On the Sacred Disease” And who are you, said he? Don’t puzzle me, said I. Laurence Sterne, Tristram Shandy What (or When) is the Neuro

The Ethics and Politics of Grammatical Subjectivity CHANTAL BAX 1 THE ETHICO-POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS OF RETHINKING SUBJECTIVITY Along with continental thinkers such as Heidegger, Foucault and Derrida, Witt- genstein can be held responsible for the radical reconceptualization of human sub- jectivity that has occupied much of philosophy since the previous century. Taking issue with the traditional or Cartesian view on the nature of man, these thinkers all argued that human being does not come in the form of an ethereal and isolated self; the

Marking subjectivity in interviews on political engagement Interpretive logics and the metapragmatics of identity JAN ZIENKOWSKI 1. INTRODUCTION In the humanities it has become commonplace to argue that the self in- volves multiple processes of identification. No matter whether we talk about the individual as being constituted by a multiplicity of communica- tive or social roles, by a polyphony of voices, by a variety of performances and strategies, or by a set of discursive interpellations, it has become quite acceptable to argue for the

Students as Young People: The Process of Subjectivization EDUARDO WEISS This paper presents a reflection on the central concepts of the study of students as young people. Such theoretical reflection is the product of a line of research on »School and Young People« that I work on with my students at the master’s and doctoral levels. Our research attempts to overcome the unilateral quality of studies on students and studies on young people in Mexico as Guzman and Saucedo (2005) propose in overview of the state of the art. Research on students is

Matrixial Subjectivity at the Borders of Theatre and Life1 BRANISLAVA KUBUROVI NAKED GIRL FALLING DOWN THE STAIRS “Naked Girl Falling Down The Stairs” is the title of The Cramps’ 1994 song from their Flamejob album, a likely inspiration for Kira O’Reilly’s Stair Falling piece, performed initially only months after the death of The Cramps’ founding member and lead singer Lux Interior.2 O’Reilly’s deceptively simple piece consisted of ‘just’ that, a “naked girl falling down the stairs of a museum/gallery, performing the action of falling down the stairs

The Baltic Way as a Political Performance of Subjectivization1 STEVE WILMER On 23 August 1989, a 600 km human chain linked Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius to condemn the Ribbentrop-Molotov pact on its 50th anniversary. It was a symbolic performance uniting three republics of the Soviet Union in an extraordinary act to denounce the Soviet occupation of these three independent nation-states in 1939 and to demand restitution of their sovereign rights. As an embodied performance of national as well as transnational solidarity, it challenged the Soviet interpretation
