Drawing on Black feminist thought, queer theory, and queer of color critique, Touching History argues that Black women in the Post-Civil Rights era have employed diverse technologies in order to produce fictionalized narratives which counter the neoliberal imperative to forget the past. Black feminist and queer theorists have described the potential for artistic imaginings to address gaps in the historical record and Touching History follows this line of theory. Touching History examines an archive of Black women’s cultural productions since the 1970s which includes novels, short stories, essays, experimental video film, digital music videos and visual albums. Reading across these diverse media and genres, this project considers how Black women have made use of the affordances of specific technologies in order to tell stories which may be fictional yet reveal “a kind of truth” about the embodied and affective experiences of the past. These mediated images and narratives serve as extensions of their bodies that push against static ideas of the Black female body. Whether it’s the image in a film or video, or the digital avatar presented through social media, Touching History argues these representations are intimately linked to the corporeal presence of the Black female artist. Alongside technologies of the video camera and the digital camera, this project also considers other embodied technologies of expression including sadomasochism and the book and considers how these also provide a means for Black women to touch history. Examining the novels of Thulani Davis and Marci Blackman, the short fiction of Alice Walker, the experimental films of Cheryl Dunye, and music videos created by singers Erykah Badu and Beyonce, this project examines the expression of queer desires by Black women. In this project “queer” is not synonymous with gay and lesbian or same-sex desires, although it may at times be used to describe them. Queer desires in this project also include the desire to excavate and speak to the past in a society that prizes forward looking progress narratives, the desire to speak to the dead and not let them lapse into oblivion, the desire to center one’s marginalized self in a work of art, and the desire to resist labels (including that of “lesbian”). When this project describes Black women as touching history (a phrase taken up explicitly in chapter 1) this describes a queer relationship to personal and historical time. Black women’s queer relationship to time in these texts denies this normative desire to bury the past or claim it is something we have moved beyond (as in narratives of progress after the freedom struggles of the 1960s and 1970s).

A Kind of Story Music is drummer Tim Chalmers's great escape and the one thing that's never let him down. But his band Spiral's meteoric rise to fame has made it difficult for him to maintain a low profile. Unwanted press pesters him after a public breakup with a volatile ex-girlfriend who loves the limelight as much as he loathes it. Tim's main goal is to avoid confrontation. However, when a handsome stranger in a dive bar turns out to be someone he might know, everything changes. Carter Hamilton-Temple might be a successful financial consultant with more brains, sophistication, and charm than most, but he always falls for the wrong guys: closet cases or men with issues. He can't fight his attraction to tattooed rock star Tim, but can he trust his own judgment? When the thrill of danger combined with a fierce physical connection proves too strong for either man to resist, a quiet liaison away from the public eye and curious friends seems like a safe bet. But some secrets are hard to keep. When rumors threaten to rock his world, Tim realizes it's time to confront his fear with his own kind of honesty.

Once, on a street in New York City, author Lori Jakiela stopped on a whim to visit a palm reader. She told Lori, "We all have two lives and we carry the maps of those lives with us. Our left hands mark the lives we're born with. Our right hands mark the lives we make for ourselves."Belief Is Its Own Kind of Truth, Maybe is a book about mapping those lives - the lives we are born with and the lives we are allowed - and lucky enough - to make for ourselves.Belief is part adoption narrative and part meditation on family, motherhood, nature vs. nurture, and what it means to make our own authentic human connections. It extends the possibilities of creative nonfiction at a time when many people are talking about what exactly truth-in-memoir means. The book's patchwork form mirrors the fragmented experience of being an adoptee confronting -- and trying to heal -- her roots. Belief is the story of one woman's search for her birth mother coupled with the parallel story of her own motherhood and her own re-making. It's about what it means to be a mother, what it's like to have two very different blood connections, and what it means to form a family.Belief is about searching for roots and what that means, exactly. It's about finding a balance between the families we're born into and the ones we make ourselves.

The Primitivist Theory Of Truth

Jamin Asay's book offers a fresh and daring perspective on the age-old question 'What is truth?', with a comprehensive articulation and defence of primitivism, the view that truth is a fundamental and indefinable concept. Often associated with Frege and the early Russell and Moore, primitivism has been largely absent from the larger conversation surrounding the nature of truth. Asay defends primitivism by drawing on a range of arguments from metaphysics, philosophy of language and philosophy of logic, and navigates between correspondence theory and deflationism by reviving analytic philosophy's first theory of truth. In its exploration of the role that truth plays in our cognitive and linguistic lives, The Primitivist Theory of Truth offers an account of not just the nature of truth, but the foundational role that truth plays in our conceptual scheme. It will be valuable for students and scholars of philosophy of language and of metaphysics.
