Beyond Bali




Ana Dragojlovic

This ethnography explores how Balinese citizens produce postcolonial intimacy-a complex interaction of claims to proximity and mutuality between themselves and the Dutch under colonialism that continues today. Such claims, Ana Dragojlovic explains, are crucial for the diasporic reconfiguration of kebalian, or Balinese-ness, a concept that encompasses the personal, social, and cultural complexities involved in Balinese identity in Dutch postcolonial society. This identity enables Balinese migrants to see themselves as carriers of unique cultural traditions both promoted by and in disagreement with Dutch cultural values.

Dynamics of religion in Southeast Asia

Dynamics of religion in Southeast Asia



Drawing on recent ethnographic research in Southeast Asia, the authors demonstrate how religious concepts contribute to meeting the challenges of modernity. Modernity is surrounded by an almost magic aura that casts a spell over people all over the world. In fourteen chapters, the authors demonstrate how religious concepts and magic practices contribute to meeting the challenges of modernity. Against this background, religion and modernity are no longer perceived as in contradiction: rather, it is argued that a revision of the western notion of religion is required to understand the complexity of 'multiple modernities' in a globalised world. -Volker Gottowik is postdoctoral researcher in the area studies network `Dynamics of Religion in Southeast Asia (DORISEA) at the Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, University of Heidelberg.

From padi states to commercial states

From padi states to commercial states




Frédéric Bourdier

Zomia is a term coined in 2002 to describe the broad swath of mountainous land in Southeast Asia that has always been beyond the reach of lowland governments despite their technical claims to control. This book expands the anthropological reach of that term, applying it to any deterritorialised people, from cast-out migrants to modern resisters-in the process finding new ways to understand the realities of peoples and ethnicities that refuse to become part of the modern state.

Plessner's philosophical anthropology

Plessner's philosophical anthropology



Helmut Plessner (18921985) was one of the founders of philosophical anthropology, and his book 'The Stages of the Organic and Man', first published in 1928, has inspired generations of philosophers, biologists, social scientists, and humanities scholars. This volume offers the first substantial introduction to Plessners philosophical anthropology in English, not only setting it in context with such familiar figures as Bergson, Cassirer, and Merleau-Ponty, but also showing Plessners relevance to contemporary discussions in a wide variety of fields in the humanities and sciences.

Tourist utopias



The contributors to this volume theorize and analyse a variety of 'tourist utopias' - a nascent socio-spatial form and set of related practices crucial to a post-industrial, biopolitical global economy. From Disneyworld to Abu Dhabi, Singapore to Macau, 'Middle Earth' to Mount Athos, these sites share common characteristics that include their respective status as enclave 'spaces of exception'; entrepreneurial and neoliberal governance regimes that rely on cooperation among state and non-state actors; transient, multi-national populations of tourists and workers; immaterial and affective forms of labor and consumption; superlative and iconic architecture; and economies devoted to such heterotopian leisure activities as shopping, gambling, spectacle, and amusement. These locales are not only popular destinations for mobile tourists and migrant workers from around the globe, but also serve as cultural laboratories for testing new formats and protocols typical of an emergent post-Fordist form-of-life. NB: CATALOGUSTEKST CHICAGO: From Disneyworld to Abu Dhabi and the resorts and casinos of Singapore and Macau, 'tourist utopias' are a growing part of international capitalism. The book brings together a group of scholars from a wide range of disciplines to analyse these locations as 'spaces of exception, where entrepreneurial and neoliberal governance relies on cooperation among state and non-state actors, as well as transient multinational populations of both workers and consumers. They serve, the contributors argue, as cultural laboratories for testing new protocols for neoliberal governance and capitalist production.

Holland flowering

Holland flowering




Andrew Gebhardt

Growing tulip bulbs on the moon, and a tulip shaped island in the North Sea. Frederick Ruysch's wunderkammer and contemporary bloemencorsos. A Dutch-Chinese billionaire, aka the Orchid King, recreates a 'Dutch' town in northeast China complete with a replica of Amsterdam's central station and the International Court of Justice. A retired grower recalls a life in flowers, from the Second World War to the European Union. Dutch development policies in Ethiopia today and its former civilizing mission in Java. Auctions, cooperatives, networking, commodity culture, Dutch masculinity, and globalization. These are some of the imaginaries, themes, curious details, and perspectives you will encounter in this book. All of them pivot around Dutch flower culture today and in the Dutch Golden Age, and directly or indirectly link to Aalsmeer's flower auction, the world's largest, located not far from Amsterdam.
