Publisher: Cambridge University Press | pages: 328 | 2009 | ISBN: 0521899710 | PDF | 11,2 mb

Exploring the history and religious community of a group of Muslim Sufi mystics who came largely from socially marginal backgrounds in colonial French West Africa, this study shows the relationship between religious, social, and economic change in the region. It highlights the role that intellectuals - including not only elite men, but also women, slaves, and the poor - played in shaping social and cultural change and illuminates the specific religious ideas on which Muslims drew and the political contexts that gave their efforts meaning.

If You're Not Free at Work, Where Are You Free: Literature and Social Change (Essential Essays)

If You're Not Free at Work, Where Are You Free: Literature and Social Change (Essential Essays) by Tom Wayman
English | April 1st, 2018 | ISBN: 1771832878 | 250 Pages | EPUB | 0.98 MB

The essays in If You're Not Free At Work, Where Are You Free: Literature and Social Change focus on the interconnection of community/workplace/individual and how literature has a role in social struggles aimed at making that nexus more liberatory. Certain essays develop some of Wayman's earlier ideas concerning the potential of imaginative writing that takes daily work as its central theme. The range of topics includes various social issues in contemporary writing–narrative, love poems, the teaching (and hence status) of poetry, and postmodernism.

Tatler's Irony: Conspicuous Consumption, Inconspicuous Power and Social Change

Tatler's Irony: Conspicuous Consumption, Inconspicuous Power and Social Change By Sallie McNamara
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 149 Pages | ISBN : 3319769138 | 2.95 MB

This book discusses Tatler, a monthly glossy magazine aimed at the wealthiest groups in British society, to consider how it addresses social change. The volume addresses specifically the period from 1997, the year New Labour was elected under Tony Blair, up to 2010, when the Conservative party and David Cameron came in to power. Sallie McNamara scrutinizes how the magazine negotiates ideas of ‘Britishness’, class, gender and national identity in a changing social, political, economic and cultural climate. Additionally, she explores the magazine’s humorous approach, and looks at how that distinctive address can potentially lead to misinterpretation. The British class system has seen many challenges over the period of the magazine’s history, and this study expertly grapples with exactly how Tatler has maintained its audience in a continually changing social environment.

Data Activism and Social Change

Data Activism and Social Change By Miren Gutiérrez
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 190 Pages | ISBN : 3319783181 | 3.49 MB

This book efficiently contributes to our understanding of the interplay between data, technology and communicative practice on the one hand, and democratic participation on the other. It addresses the emergence of proactive data activism, a new sociotechnical phenomenon in the field of action that arises as a reaction to massive datafication, and makes affirmative use of data for advocacy and social change. By blending empirical observation and in-depth qualitative interviews, Gutiérrez brings to the fore a debate about the social uses of the data infrastructure and examines precisely how people employ it, in combination with other technologies, to collaborate and act for social change.
