A Queer History of Adolescence (eBook, ePUB)
20,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A Queer History of Adolescence reveals categories of age-and adolescence, specifically-as an undeniable and essential mechanism in the production of difference itself. Drawing from a dynamic and varied archive, including British and American newspapers, medical papers and pamphlets, and adolescent and children's literature circulating on both sides of the Atlantic, Gabrielle Owen argues that adolescence has a logic, a way of thinking, that emerges over the course of the nineteenth century and that survives in various forms to this day. This logic makes the idea of adolescence possible and naturalizes our historically specific ways of conceptualizing time, development, social hierarchy, and the self. Rich in intersectional analysis, this book offers a multifaceted and historicized theory for categories of age that challenges existing methodologies for studying the people called children and adolescents. Rather than offering critique as an end in and of itself, A Queer History of Adolescence imagines the world-making possibilities that critique enables and, in so doing, shines a necessary light on the question of relationality in the lived world. Owen exposes the profound presence of history in our current moment in order to transform the habits of mind shaping age relations, social hierarchy, and the politics of identity today.

In a Queer Voice: Journeys of Resilience from A...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Adolescence is a difficult time, but it can be particularly stressful for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer-identifying youth. In order to avoid harassment and rejection, many LGBTQ teens hide their identities from their families, peers, and even themselves. Educator Michael Sadowski deftly brings the voices of LGBTQ youth out into the open in his poignant and important book, In a Queer Voice. Drawing on two waves of interviews conducted six years apart, Sadowski chronicles how queer youth, who were often "silenced" in school and elsewhere, now can approach adulthood with a strong, queer voice. In a Queer Voice continues the critical conversation about LGBTQ youth issues - from bullying and suicide to other risks involving drug and alcohol abuse - by focusing on the factors that help young people develop positive, self-affirming identities. Using the participants' heartfelt, impassioned voices, we hear what schools, families, and communities can do to help LGBTQ youth become resilient, confident adults. The book is published by Temple University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jack McKown. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/073660/bk_acx0_073660_sample.mp3.

Remnants of Passion is a collection of essays that examine one woman's search for love, sex, and a sense of belonging from adolescence into middle age. It's equal parts queer and quotidian, ranging in its focus from lesbians fighting over the politics of penetration to first kisses, from apologies never made to a marriage held together with spaghetti. Sarah Einstein lives with her husband, Dominik Heinrici, in Athens, Ohio, where she is pursuing a PhD in creative writing at Ohio University. Her work has previously appeared in journals such as PANK, Ninth Letter, the Fiddleback, and Fringe magazine. She has been awarded a Pushcart Prize and a Best of the Web and been listed in the "Notable Essays" section of Best American Essays. She is currently at work on a full-length memoir about her fascinated friendship with a homeless veteran. Einstein and Heinrici maintain a blog, and you can find Einstein on Twitter at @sarahemc2.

IN THE DREAM HOUSE
26,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

A revolutionary memoir about domestic abuse by the award-winning author of Her Body and Other Parties In the Dream House is Carmen Maria Machado's engrossing and wildly innovative account of a relationship gone bad, and a bold dissection of the mechanisms and cultural representations of psychological abuse. Tracing the full arc of a harrowing relationship with a charismatic but volatile woman, Machado struggles to make sense of how what happened to her shaped the person she was becoming. And it's that struggle that gives the book its original structure: each chapter is driven by its own narrative trope-the haunted house, erotica, the bildungsroman-through which Machado holds the events up to the light and examines them from different angles. She looks back at her religious adolescence, unpacks the stereotype of lesbian relationships as safe and utopian, and widens the view with essayistic explorations of the history and reality of abuse in queer relationships. Machado's dire narrative is leavened with her characteristic wit, playfulness, and openness to inquiry. She casts a critical eye over legal proceedings, fairy tales, Star Trek, and Disney villains, as well as iconic works of film and fiction. The result is a wrenching, riveting book that explodes our ideas about what a memoir can do and be.

Codependence: Coping With Addiction, Sadism and...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Codependence: Coping with Addiction, Sadism and Abuse is based on a white paper the author drafted for a drug rehabilitation center in the United States. The study is basically divided in three parts, dealing with different manifestations of parent-child codependence and the resulting lacking autonomy and self-reliance of the later adolescent and young adult, who, as a result of his early entanglement with a parent, gets into a negative growth spiral by a rather queer sexual development (sadism), and dependency patterns in all spheres of life.Addiction, sadism, and abuse are all power traps, and inhibit the young adult from developing his full soul power and charisma. They have all one etiology: the fact of a prolonged codependent relationship with one parent, while the other parent was either absent, irresponsible, or unacceptable. For reasons of the different psychosexual setup of the two sexes, the problem occurs more regularly with boys who are codependent with their mothers and who at the onset of adulthood - or even during adolescence - are suffering from more or less violent sexual urges, and substance abuse and dependency, as well as the scars of emotional abuse, often committed by mothers who ask their male offspring to cling to them as long as possible, and avoid getting into sexual relations with girls of their age, for dating, or more mature women for serious relations and marriage.It is then regularly the mother who is in the way for the boy to develop a life of his own. When that boy was an infant, the mother had all possible pretexts to not live the primary fusional relation with the newborn, thereby causing the psychic and emotional scars that later lead to the codependent relationship. The essay is understood as a self-help guide for those who wish to get ready to face their dependency pattern as a preparation for qualified psychiatric and psychosocial assistance as a second step. 1.
