COLLEGE OF ARTS & SCIENCES
Yaba A. Blay, PhD, Co-Director of Africana Studies; Assistant Teaching Professor, Africana Studies, Center for Interdisciplinary Studies
(1)ne Drop : Shifting the Lens on Race
This book seeks to challenge narrow perceptions of Blackness as both an identity and lived reality.

George Ciccariello-Maher, PhD, Assistant Professor, Department of History & Politics
We Created Chávez: A People’s History of the Venezuelan Revolution
Since being elected president in 1998, Hugo Chávez has become the face of contemporary Venezuela and, more broadly, anticapitalist revolution. George Ciccariello-Maher contends that this focus on Chávez has obscured the inner dynamics and historical development of the country’s Bolivarian Revolution. In We Created Chávez, by examining social movements and revolutionary groups active before and during the Chávez era, Ciccariello-Maher provides a broader, more nuanced account of Chávez’s rise to power and the years of activism that preceded it.

Roman Colombo, Adjunct Assistant Professor, Department of English & Philosophy
Trading Saints for Sinners
Caden Conrad is a damn good liar - to his loved ones, the newspapers who employ him, even to himself. Desperately trying to distance himself from his past, and courting the prostitute Ariadne, Caden has turned the worst parts of Europe into his own personal hell. But now his lies are catching up with him, and the archangel Mephistopheles - a former devil - has come to collect.

Up Against a Wall: Rape Reform and the Failure of Success
Rape law reform has long been hailed as one of the most successful projects of second-wave feminism. Yet forty years after the anti-rape movement emerged, legal and medical institutions continue to resist implementing reforms intended to provide more just and compassionate legal and medical responses to victims of sexual violence. In Up Against a Wall, Rose Corrigan draws on interviews with over 150 local rape care advocates in communities across the United States to explore how and why mainstream systems continue to resist feminist reforms.

Usha Menon, PhD, Associate Professor of Anthropology, Department of Culture & Communication
Women, Wellbeing, and the Ethics of Domesticity in an Odia Hindu Temple Town
This book is a detailed ethnography of traditional, predominantly upper-caste, sequestered Hindu women in the temple town of Bhubaneswar in Odisha, a state in eastern India. It elaborates on a distinctive paradigm of domesticity and explicates a particular model of human wellbeing. Part of the growing literature in “third wave” or “multicultural feminism,” it seeks to broaden the parameters of feminist discourse to examine the potential for female empowerment that exists in the context of these women’s lives. Its aims are twofold: first, to represent these women in ways that they themselves would recognize; and, second, to interpret, rather than merely “translate,” the beliefs and practices of the temple town such that their underlying logic becomes readily accessible to readers, even those unfamiliar with the Hindu world.
