The Senses of Touch: Haptics, Affects and Technologies
Publisher: Berg Publishers | 2007 | ISBN: 1845204794 | PDF | 156 pages | 1.3Mb
Problems of touch and tactility run as a continuous thread in philosophy, psychology, medical writing and representations in art, from Ancient Greece to the present day. Not merely immediate skin sensation, touching and feeling are inextricably woven into embodied experiences that are emotional and expressive, personal and interpersonal, and mediated through technologies. Examining the role of touch in art, memory, digital design, developmental psychology, experiences of visual impairment, and tactile therapies, The Senses of Touch demonstrates the varieties of sensory experience, and explores the diverse range of our "senses" of touch.
Racing Romance: Love, Power, and Desire Among Asian American/ White Couples
Publisher: Rutgers University Press | 2009 | ISBN: 0813545331 | PDF | 208 pages | 1Mb
Racing Romance sheds light on the bonds between whites and Asian Americans, an important topic that has not garnered well-deserved attention until now. Using primary source narratives and interviews, Kumiko Nemoto addresses the contradictions and tensions-a result of race, class, and gender-that Asian Americans and whites experience. Racing Romance reveals how "progressive" interracial relationships remain shaped by the logic of patriarchy and gender inherent to the ideal of marriage, family, and nation in America, even as this ideal is juxtaposed with discourses of multiculturalism and color blindness.
