Pakeha Slaves, Maori Masters Trevor Bentley 2019 Slavery in the popular imagination has always been associated with the enslavement of Africans, and with good reason. Slavery however, is universal and not something that only white people did to black people. Throughout history, slavery has been practiced in many different forms and Maori slavery readily fits definitions of slavery elsewhere in world. This book discusses Pakeha (European) vassals or demi-slaves. Its main focus is the Europeans who lived and sometimes died as slaves in tribal New Zealand between the 1790s and 1880s. It examines when, where, why and how Maori obtained these slaves and the types of Europeans seized. It explores the diverse slave roles performed by white slaves, their sale prices and the immediate and long term physical and psychological effects of their servitude. Using published histories by hapu and iwi historians and writings on customary law by Maori scholars, captivity narratives by returned Pakeha slaves, and contemporary accounts about white slaves in newspapers, journals, letters and logs historian Trevor Bentley paints a vivid picture of the interaction between Maori and Pakeha and life in the early days of the colony.

A Good Long Drive Bob Phillips 2021-09-07 In 2021, Texas Country Reporter celebrates its fiftieth season on the air. Broadcast every week on stations across Texas, it focuses on “ordinary people doing extraordinary things.” And at the center of it is Bob Phillips, the show’s creator and host—an erstwhile poor kid from Dallas who ended up with a job that allowed him to rub elbows with sports figures, entertainers, and politicians but who preferred to spend his time on the back roads, listening to less-famous Texans tell their stories. In this memoir, Phillips tells his own story, from his early days as a reporter and his initial pitch for the show while a student at SMU to his ongoing work at the longest-running independently produced TV show in American television history. As we travel with Phillips on his journey, we meet Willie Nelson and former Dallas Cowboys coach Tom Landry; reflect on memorable, unusual, and challenging show segments; experience the behind-the-scenes drama that goes on in local television; witness the launching of an annual festival; and discover the unbelievable allure of Texas, its culture, and, especially, its people. Spanning generations, A Good Long Drive is proof that life’s journey really is a destination unto itself.
Magic Ernesto De Martino 2015 The work of Ernesto de Martino is relatively unknown outside of Italian intellectual circles, but with a growing interest in his ethnographic and theoretical work, he is now widely considered to be one of the great anthropologists and historians of religion of the early twentieth century. Magic: A theory from the south (first published in Italian asSud e Magia) is de Martino's stunning ethnography of ceremonial magic in southern Italy (Luciana/Basilicata), an intimate “other” to Western European civilization. Rigorous and detailed analyses of evil eye, possession, witchcraft, religious belief, “binding,” exorcism, and various magical practices lead de Martino to question the historical, ideological, ritual, psychological, and pragmatic grounds of the arts of enchantment. The question here is not whether magic is irrational or rational, but why it came to be perceived as a problem of knowledge in the first place. De Martino's response is contextualized within his wider, pathbreaking theorization of ritual, as well as his politically sensitive reading of the south's subaltern culture in its historical encounter with Western science. In addition to the ethnography, De Martino's historical anthropology traces the development of “jettatura” in Enlightenment Naples as a paradigm of the complex dynamics between hegemonic and subaltern cultures. Far ahead of its time, this first English edition (annotated and translated by Dorothy Louise Zinn) stands to be as relevant as ever as anthropologists (among others) continue to theorize modernity's continued tryst with magical thinking. 1st Edition Publication Data: [1959] 2001. Sud e magia. Milano: Feltrinelli Editore. ISBN: 9788807816758.

A Rainbow Thread Noam Sienna 2019 For many queer Jews, Jewish tradition seems like a rich tapestry which at best ignores them and at worst rejects them entirely. In reality, queerness and queer Judaism have been a constant subplot of Jewish history, if only we care to look. Spanning almost two millennia and containing translations from more than a dozen languages, Noam Sienna's new book, A Rainbow Thread: An Anthology of Queer Jewish Texts From the First Century to 1969, collects for the first time more than a hundred sources on the intersection of Jewish and queer identities. Covering poetry, drama, literature, law, midrash, and memoir, this anthology suggests that Jewish texts are not just obstacles to be overcome in the creation of queer Jewish life, but also potential resources waiting to be excavated. Through an unprecedented examination of the histories of gender and sexuality over two millennia of Jewish life around the world, this book inspires and challenges its readers to create a better future through a purposeful reflection on our past.

The Amelia Six Kristin L. Gray 2020-06-30 “A cozy whodunit that cheerfully affirms girls’ and women’s contributions to aerospace.” —Kirkus Reviews “Comparisons with Nancy Drew and Sammy Keyes come to mind, but this satisfying mystery seems more like the works of Ellen Raskin, E.L. Konigsburg, and Gennifer Choldenko.” —School Library Connection “A wonderful tribute to [Amelia Earhart] who herself came to embody mystery.” —Booklist Amelia Earhart’s famous aviator goggles go missing and eleven-year-old Millie has to find them before the night is over in this girl-powered middle grade whodunit. Eleven-year-old Amelia Ashford—Millie to her friends (if she had any, that is)—doesn’t realize just how much adventure awaits her when she’s given the opportunity of a lifetime: to spend the night in Amelia Earhart’s childhood home with five other girls. Make that five strangers. But Millie’s mom is a pilot like the famous Amelia, and Millie would love to have something to write to her about…if only she had her address. Once at Amelia’s house in Atchison, Kansas, Millie stumbles upon a display of Amelia’s famous flight goggles. She can’t believe her good luck, since they’re about to be relocated to a fancy museum in Washington, DC. But her luck changes quickly when the goggles disappear, and Millie was the last to see them. Soon, fingers are pointing in all directions, and someone falls strangely ill. Suddenly, a fun night of scavenger hunts and sweets takes a nosedive and the girls aren’t sure who to trust. With a blizzard raging outside and a house full of suspects, the girls have no choice but to band together. It’s up to the Amelia Six to find the culprit and return the goggles to their rightful place. Or the next body to collapse could be one of theirs.

Strategies for Supporting Inclusion and Diversity in the Academy Gail Crimmins 2020-06-29 This book explores tried and tested strategies that support student and faculty engagement and inclusion in the academy. These strategies are anchored by a brief exploration of the history and effect/s of exclusion and deprivilege in higher education. However, while many publications exploring academic inequality focus on the causes and impacts of structural, psychological and cultural exclusion based on racism, sexism, classism and ableism, they rarely engage in interventions to expose and combat such de/privilege. Capturing examples of inclusive practices that are as diverse as student and faculty populations, these strategies can be easily translated and employed by organisations, collectives and individuals to recognise and combat social and academic exclusion within higher education environments.
