Indiana University Bloomington

Amid the gently rolling hills of southern Indiana is one of America's most beautiful college campuses. Rich in architectural tradition, harmonious in building scale and materials, and comfortably nestled in a picturesque natural environment, Indiana University Bloomington stands as a testament to careful campus planning and committed stewardship. Planning principles adopted in the earliest stages of campus development have been protected, enhanced, and faithfully preserved, resulting in an institution that can truly be called America's Legacy Campus. Lavishly illustrated with 481 photographs and brimming with fascinating details, this book tells the story of that campus--a tale not only of Indiana University's buildings, architecture, and growth, but of the talented, dedicated people who brought the buildings to life.

The Bloomington campus of Indiana University, home to the Hoosiers, is widely known and acknowledged as one of the most picturesque college campuses in the United States, with the likes of Harvard, Princeton, and other prominent universities. Its Sample Gates and limestone buildings welcome students to a nearly 2,000-acre campus that sits in the rolling hills of southern Indiana, surrounded by natural beauty. Named by Travel & Leisure as one of America’s Most Beautiful College Campuses, this quintessential treasure houses the largest student union building in the United States, representing the core of the original campus and the architectural planning that went into the early years. As the campus grows, this expansion carefully continues in the same tradition. A multitude of green space, including Dunn Woods, the Arboretum, and the Jordan River provide breathtaking scenery, while music, arts, and sports receive worldwide attention. This pictorial collection will delight students, parents, alumni, and Hoosiers alike.

Girl with Death Mask

Love, tequila, sex, first periods, late nights, abuse, and heartache. The journey from girl to womanhood is brimming with transformative magic that heals even as it shatters. These are the memories that haunt the dreams of what was and what could have been in Girl with Death Mask. In four rich and imaginative movements of poems, Jennifer Givhan profiles the suffering and the love of a Latina girl and then mother coming to terms with sexual trauma. Her daughter is a touchstone of healing as she seeks to unravel her own emotions as well as protect the next generation of budding women with a fierceness she must find within. Givhan exploits changing poetic forms to expose what it means to mature in a female body swirling with tenderness, violence, and potential in an uncertain world. Girl with Death Mask is a cathartic and gripping confession of the trials of adolescence and womanhood.

The Phenomenology of Religious Life

The Phenomenology of Religious Life presents the text of Heidegger’s important 1920–21 lectures on religion. The volume consists of the famous lecture course Introduction to the Phenomenology of Religion, a course on Augustine and Neoplatonism, and notes for a course on The Philosophical Foundations of Medieval Mysticism that was never delivered. Heidegger’s engagements with Aristotle, St. Paul, Augustine, and Luther give readers a sense of what phenomenology would come to mean in the mature expression of his thought. Heidegger reveals an impressive display of theological knowledge, protecting Christian life experience from Greek philosophy and defending Paul against Nietzsche.

Indiana University

This third volume in the history of Indiana University starts with the presidency of Herman B Wells, covers the many changes that occured as a result of World War II, and the presidency of Well's successor, Elvis J. Stahr, Jr. In 1968, when Wells was called back as interim president in 1986, Indiana University stood at the crest of a century and a half of advancement—far exceeding the promise of the tiny frontier seminary of the 1820s.

Space and Mobility in Palestine

Professor Julie Peteet believes that the concept of mobility is key to understanding how place and space act as forms of power, identity, and meaning among Palestinians in Israel today. In Space and Mobility in Palestine, she investigates how Israeli policies of closure and separation influence Palestinian concerns about constructing identity, the ability to give meaning to place, and how Palestinians comprehend, experience, narrate, and respond to Israeli settler-colonialism. Peteet’s work sheds new light on everyday life in the Occupied Territories and helps explain why regional peace may be difficult to achieve in the foreseeable future.

Swahili Muslim Publics and Postcolonial Experience

Swahili Muslim Publics and Postcolonial Experience is an exploration of the ideas and public discussions that have shaped and defined the experience of Kenyan coastal Muslims. Focusing on Kenyan postcolonial history, Kai Kresse isolates the ideas that coastal Muslims have used to separate themselves from their "upcountry Christian" countrymen. Kresse looks back to key moments and key texts--pamphlets, newspapers, lectures, speeches, radio discussions--as a way to map out the postcolonial experience and how it is negotiated in the coastal Muslim community. On one level, this is a historical ethnography of how and why the content of public discussion matters so much to communities at particular points in time. Kresse shows how intellectual practices can lead to a regional understanding of the world and society. On another level, this ethnography of the postcolonial experience also reveals dimensions of intellectual practice in religious communities and thus provides an alternative model that offers a non-Western way to understand regional conceptual frameworks and intellectual practice.

The use of assisted reproductive technologies (ART)--in vitro fertilization, artificial insemination, and gestational surrogacy--challenges contemporary notions of what it means to be parents or families. Camisha A. Russell argues that these technologies also bring new insight to ideas and questions surrounding race. In her view, if we think of ART as medical technology, we might be surprised by the importance that people using them put on race, especially given the scientific evidence that race lacks a genetic basis. However if we think of ART as an intervention to make babies and parents, as technologies of kinship, the importance placed on race may not be so surprising after all. Thinking...
