Milk is a fascinating food: it is produced by mothers of each mammalian species for consumption by nursing infants of that species, yet many humans drink the milk of another species (mostly cows) and they drink it throughout life. Thus we might expect that this dietary practice has some effects on human biology that are different from other foods. In Re-imagining Milk Wiley considers these, but also puts milk-drinking into a broader historical and cross-cultural context. In particular, she asks how dietary policies promoting milk came into being in the U.S., how they intersect with biological variation in milk digestion, how milk consumption is related to child growth, and how milk is currently undergoing globalizing processes that contribute to its status as a normative food for children (using India and China as examples). Wiley challenges the reader to re-evaluate their assumptions about cows' milk as a food for humans. Informed by both biological and social theory and data, Re-imagining Milk provides a biocultural analysis of this complex food and illustrates how a focus on a single commodity can illuminate aspects of human biology and culture.

This book explores the ways that pre-existing ‘national’ works or ‘national theatre’ sites can offer a rich source of material for speaking to the contemporary moment because of the resonances or associations they offer of a different time, place, politics, or culture. Featuring a broad international scope, it offers a series of thought-provoking essays that explore how playwrights, directors, theatre-makers, and performance artists have re-staged or re-worked a classic national play, performance, theatrical form, or theatre space in order to engage with conceptions of and questions around the nation, nationalism, and national identity in the contemporary moment, opening up new ways of thinking about or problematizing questions around the nation and national identity. Chapters ask how productions engage with a particular moment in the national psyche in the context of internationalism and globalization, for example, as well as how productions explore the interconnectivity of nations, intercultural agendas, or cosmopolitanism. They also explore questions relating to the presence of migrants, exiles, or refugees, and the legacy of colonial histories and post-colonial subjectivities. The volume highlights how theatre and performance has the ability to contest and unsettle ideas of the nation and national identity through the use of various sites, stagings, and performance strategies, and how contemporary theatres have portrayed national agendas and characters at a time of intense cultural flux and repositioning.

Shortlist des Man Booker Prize – die psychologisch faszinierende Geschichte einer Mutter-Tochter-Beziehung.Eine junge Frau begleitet ihre Mutter nach Spanien, wo diese in einer Spezialklinik behandelt werden soll, da die Beine ihr den Dienst versagen. Doch ist das Leiden der Mutter wirklich physischer Natur, oder versucht sie, ihre Tochter an sich zu binden? Dr. Gomez gilt als Koryphäe, deshalb reisen die beiden Engländerinnen nach Andalusien, wo sich Rose in Behandlung begibt. Sofia, deren griechischer Vater die Familie vor Jahren verließ, versucht zu ergründen, woran ihre Mutter erkrankt ist und wo sie selbst steht. Beim Schwimmen im Meer, das voller Medusen ist, in Gesprächen mit Dr. Gomez oder dessen Tochter wird ihr immer klarer, dass sie sich von ihrer Mutter befreien muss. Als sie die Deutsche Ingrid kennenlernt, die selbstbewusst und unkonventionell ihr Leben lebt, trifft Sofia Entscheidungen. Ein Roman über eine allzu enge Mutter-Tochter-Beziehung, über Abhängigkeit und Emanzipation und über die Suche nach Identität, ein Buch, das wie ein Quallenbiss brennt und noch lange nachwirkt. Deborah Levy, die Autorin von »Heim schwimmen«, wurde für diesen Roman mehrfach ausgezeichnet und für den Man Booker Prize nominiert. »Ein Roman, der in seiner Klarheit an Virginia Woolf erinnert« The Guardian
