Hürriyet kavramının anlamı geçmişi ve ilgili kavramlar eşliğinde irdelenmektedir. Müsavat ve uhuvvet kavramlarının tarihi bağlamda hürriyet ile birlikte gündeme geldiği görülmektedir. Dönem öncesinden süregelen adalet talebi daha uzun soluklu bir kavramın güncellenmiş halini teşkil etmektedir. Hürriyet ve adalet kavramlarının nihai hedeflerinden olan meşrutiyet de dönemin anlayışına anlam katmaktadır. Vatan kavramı tüm bu kavramların altında olduğu bir çatı olarak karşımıza çıkmakta ve hürriyetle ilgili kavramları bir çerçeveye sığdırmaya yardımcı olmaktadır.

DepositBlack Girls, White Girls, American Girls: Slavery and Racialized Perspectives in Abolitionist and Neoabolitionist Children’s Literature

Analyzing abolitionist and neoabolitionist girlhood stories of racial pairing from the nineteenth and twenty-first centuries, this essay shows how children’s literature about interracial friendship represents differently racialized experiences of and responses to slavery. The article presents fiction by women writers such as Harriet Beecher Stowe and Lydia Maria Child alongside Sarah Masters Buckey and Denise Lewis Patrick’s American Girl historical fiction series about Cécile and Marie-Grace in order to show how such literature stages free children’s relationships to slavery through their own racialization. While nineteenth-century abolitionist children’s literature models how to present slavery and racism to free, white children, the American Girl series extends this model to consider how African American children’s literature considers black child readers and black children’s specialized knowledge about racism. The model of narration and scripting of reading practices in the Cécile and Marie-Grace stories promote cross-racial identification, showing how, because children read from already racialized perspectives that literature also informs, both black and white children might benefit from seeing alternating perspectives of slavery represented. By further re-thinking the boundaries of who might identify with other enslaved or enslavable child characters, we might unveil more radical antiracist potential in this children’s literature.

DepositFood and Transformation in Ancient Mediterranean Literature

Preview of Food and Transformation in Ancient Mediterranean Literature (SBL Press, 2019) From SBL Press: In her book, Food and Transformation in Ancient Mediterranean Literature, Meredith J. C. Warren identifies and defines a new genre in ancient texts that she terms hierophagy, a specific type of transformational eating where otherworldly things are consumed. Multiple ancient Mediterranean, Jewish, and Christian texts represent the ramifications of consuming otherworldly food, ramifications that were understood across religious boundaries. Reading ancient texts through the lens of hierophagy helps scholars and students interpret difficult passages in Joseph and Aseneth, 4 Ezra, Revelation 10, and the Persephone myths, among others. Praise for Food and Transformation in Ancient Mediterranean Literature This groundbreaking analysis of hierophagy in ancient literature explores the distinct literary function of eating otherworldly food, while also putting these transformative acts in their social and cultural contexts. The author moves deftly from the texts of Ovid and Apuleius to apocalyptic Jewish literature and tales of Christian martyrdom, breaking down traditional barriers in the study of ancient literature. This volume will be essential reading for scholars of antiquity and adds much to our understanding of the representation of consumption and taste in the ancient Mediterranean. K. C. Rudolph Lecturer in Classics and Philosophy University of Kent In this brilliant, ground-breaking, and theoretically informed work, Meredith Warren opens up a new area of scholarship. Her careful readings of ancient Jewish and Christian texts deftly demonstrate the importance of the transformative effects of eating both for the authors of ancient texts and for anyone thinking about food practices today.

Deposit“Irreversible”: El rol de la Digitalización para Reutilizar los Registros de la Represión del Estado

Desde mediados del 2005, archivistas- activistas del Archivo Histórico de la Policía Nacional de Guatemala han estado digitalizando documentos policiales ocultos por más de un siglo para protegerlos, organizarlos y proporcionar acceso a los mismos — 23 millones de páginas hasta la fecha. Encontramos que la digitalización amplificó la reutilización del archivo por parte del personal del AHPN para servir a las víctimas de violaciones a los derechos humanos. La digitalización aumenta las garantías de salvaguarda de la integridad física, el valor probatorio de los registros y la posibilidad de accesibilidad duradera del archivo, a corto y largo plazo pero ha requerido de factores humanos esenciales y relaciones institucionales de solidaridad, con más notoriedad en las asociaciones con donantes y organizaciones aliadas y con las ONGs locales en Guatemala. Por último, la tecnología ofrece un lente para analizar los desafíos persistentes en el trabajo de la promoción de la verdad y la justicia en Guatemala. Mostramos cómo los enfoques simples, algunas veces ad hoc, para la digitalización desarrollados bajo urgencia política pueden tener un impacto irreversible cuando se utilizan para amplificar una misión unificada impulsada por una comunidad comprometida de trabajadores archivistas.

DepositThe (True) Lord of the Rings

The critic, as guide, is here in the penultimate of a four-part series on “Lord of the Rings,” suggested to be, if not Sarumon himself (Sarumon’s voice is used), certainly someone who could readily imagine him as someone who could have been presented in the text as a flat-out ally, if he himself wasn’t relegated to being the reader’s guardian and was actually the text’s inscriber. The essay confronts the reader with the possibility that the text argues for one esteeming one’s possible regression, and for only ostensibly understanding it as adventurous growth; for not really being able to recognize one’s self-growth at all, but really only to take pleasure in others’ mistaking you for having changed, having matured, having developed, requiring your thereafter necessitating the company of fools in order to buttress one’s self-esteem. Confronts the reader with the fact that the hobbits they are leant in the text to identify with, function essentially as the Fellowship’s toilet, a place in which to project and deposit all their own insecurities. As such, they were functionally useful, actually ESSENTIAL, for the mission, for the group, but they are denied understanding this about themselves — which however disagreeable a reality, might nevertheless have leant some genuine self-pride: without “you,” Evil would have ruled the land — for “the great” needing to deny that they have such vast doubts and fears nested anywhere within them to source and supply their company toilet with — and rather to esteem themselves for attributes that are either actually common or that ultimately serve to flatter someone else. Essay pronounces that the text did supply one hobbit with evidence that he was actually perhaps more remarkable than perhaps any other in Middle-earth — Sam — and encourages his not denying himself conscious awareness of this incontrovertible, evidence-supplied felt truth, for keeping a previous sense of personal equilibrium in place.

DepositReader’s Guide to Fellowship of the Ring

Delineates how much of J.R.R. Tolkien’s “Fellowship of the Ring” is about preparing Frodo especially so that if caught out alone, he’d never dare venture a decent listen to anyone who might attempt to sway him to consider the due fate for the Ring, other than according to Gandalf’s specifications. Positions the text as one that bates the reader with the allure of calling authority figures to task, of possibly borrowing on their own leadership, what they themselves have thought or done, to impel fully attending to them at times, only so as to persuade them that the consequences for doing so are likely far more formidable than they could ever possibly manage. Called out like that, drawn out like that, it’s a text designed to leave the reader to entwine ever-deeper within themselves a sense of severe scolding on any pleasure in acting in any personal good faith. It teaches one to be less able to see flaws in those you believe you can’t live without, even when ever-more incrementally encroaching and accumulating before you. What they don’t want you to see, you never will. What they expect you to do, but which arouses guilt if expressed forthright, you’ll pluck out of the air and assume your own decision or choice. “Lord of the Rings” becomes a vile road, that requires an outside critic as guide, to thwart all that Tolkien and the likes of his Gandalf, would have of you.

DepositDestroy Music Libraries, Free Music Librarians: A Discussion of Professional Ethics and Actions

If you were invested in ensuring that music librarianship did not continue as a profession, what would you do to ensure it ended? How are we contributing to these actions today? How do we transform these realizations into positive, concrete actions to support our profession? Join us for a discussion aimed at helping attendees identify ways to strengthen the music librarian profession. As positions go unfilled or expand to include multiple job duties, and branch libraries are closed or collapsed, the profession (and the MLA) shrinks. MLA has identified diversity and inclusion movements as part of its strategic vision to respond to internal and external challenges to the profession; it has also struggled to respond to a world changing outside of music and libraries. In a variety of settings in the last few years, members have had (in)formal discussions about the challenges the profession faces and shared concerns about its future. Yet, these discussions have not provided opportunities to engage with these issues openly across the membership of the association. There is a desire and a need for productive ways to engage MLA members from diverse backgrounds in a discussion that can spark ideas for action. Building on emerging ideas of failure analysis and “failing forward,” attendees will reflect on how destruction makes room for new ideas and new paths forward for our profession. Facilitators will provide a remote moderation and access in an attempt to make space for remote participation, and extensive notes from the discussion will be available asynchronously to both members of MLA and the wider public. *Description of the model proposed in this session: **TRIZ description: These notes provide a snapshot of the in-session notes provided by participants.

DepositGetting Found, Staying Found, Increasing Impact: Enhancing Readership and Preserving Content for OJS Journals, Second Edition.

Publishing a journal is about more than simply putting ink to paper (or pixels to screen). It is a collaboration between you and your readers. Two critical aspects of this relationship are, first, making your journal visible to your prospective audience. By putting your content online and making it freely available through open access, you can be reaching of millions of people around the world. But if they don’t know you are out there, they will not be able to become part of your scholarly community. Second, once you have your content in place, and have established an audience of dedicated readers, you will want to ensure that your journal is always available – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Unlike paper publications, electronic journals can disappear rather easily, either temporarily or permanently. Regular downtime caused by an unreliable server environment, or worse, complete loss of your content due to a lack of any kind of backup or preservation strategy, can seriously undermine your credibility with your readers, or even totally wipe out all of the work you and your collaborators have done together. This revised edition of Getting Found, Staying Found highlights many aspects of the publishing process that are important for increasing your journal’s “findability” and building a wider audience. Moreover, it will also show you how to ensure reliable and ongoing access to your valuable content. Much of the information in this resource is intended to be generic and could be applied to any journal, using any software platform. However, the authors have opted to include additional information pertaining to the Open Journal Systems (OJS) software developed by the Public Knowledge Project to provide further illustrations of how to apply this information in a real-world setting.

DepositGothic fairy-tales and Deleuzian desire

This article seeks to address the ‘identity’ of the ‘gothic fairy-tale’ through an investigation of Rana Dasgupta’s Tokyo Cancelled (2005), a collection of globally oriented short stories that straddle the line between the gothic and the fairy-tale. The argument provides a close analysis of a number of the tales within Dasgupta’s collection to highlight the parity between the gothic and the fairy-tale at the level of both plot and character. Moving beyond the well-documented case of how a writer and critic such as Angela Carter exposes the latent horror of the fairy-tale, the argument seeks to explore the juncture of the gothic and the fairy-tale represented in Tokyo Cancelled and, in doing so, illustrate the ways in which fairy-tales and the gothic both depend upon certain configurations of desire while questioning the primacy of ‘horror’ and ‘terror’ to definitions of the gothic mode. While highlighting the similarities between fairy-tale and gothic forms, this article also posits the existence of ‘fairy-tale’ and ‘gothic’ sensibilities that are fundamentally different from one another, a difference that is founded ultimately upon the question of desire. Employing Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s concept of productive desire, a model that opposes that of ‘desire-as-fantasy’ and ‘desire-as-lack’, which are associated with the fairy-tale and explicitly rejected in Tokyo Cancelled, the article posits a particularly gothic conception of desire. This ‘gothic desire’ is central both to the gothic mode generally and to the ‘gothic fairy-tale’ more particularly. Rana Dasgupta’s work acts as an illustration of this conception of the ‘gothic fairy-tale,’ one which moves away from an emphasis on terror, horror, transgression and fear to focus instead on a widely differing creative project and a conception of desire as definitional to form.


Audit—the ongoing evaluation of performance—began as a fairly narrow range of technical procedures in financial accounting. However, it has now expanded its range to “account” for a wide range of behaviours, thoughts and feelings, in the workplace and elsewhere. This article suggests that audit cultures are a response to the “abyss of the differential”. This is the abyss faced when too much generative difference threatens established interests, and thus everything these interests control. Such interests often face a double bind, because they also rely on exploiting generative difference and are thus fully immersed in it. Audit is seen as a useful response to this double bind—to the abyss of the differential. Audit technics/cultures use a flexible series of ‘controls of controls’ (Power in Shore and Wright 2000: 73) that differentially declare what is (un)acceptable. They therefore both energise and bound what counts as performance, variably and across multiple contexts. Audit also links local and global, macro and micro, pragmatically, in a combination of instrumental and ‘operational reason’ (Massumi 2002: 110). Controlling events as it does, audit can thus be seen as an expression of fantasies of neofeudalism. These are fantasies of a social order arranged in terms of a new control by the few over the individual existential territories of the many, with a global territorial reach. Finally, the article suggests that audit and related technics/cultures are only partial and transitional technics/cultures. It suggests that a more effective if problematic society of direct control is emerging, yet this in part emerges with the assistance of audit technics/cultures.
