A Little Life

When four graduates from a small Massachusetts college move to New York to make their way, they're broke, adrift, and buoyed only by their friendship and ambition. There is kind, handsome Willem, an aspiring actor; JB, a quick-witted, sometimes cruel Brooklyn-born painter seeking entry to the art world; Malcolm, a frustrated architect at a prominent firm; and withdrawn, brilliant, enigmatic Jude, who serves as their centre of gravity. Over the decades, their relationships deepen and darken, tinged by addiction, success, and pride.

Abolition. Feminism. Now.

In this landmark work, four of the world's leading scholar-activists issue an urgent call for a truly intersectional, internationalist, abolitionist feminism. As a politics and as a practice, abolitionism has increasingly shaped our political moment, amplified through the worldwide protests following the 2020 murder of George Floyd by a uniformed police officer. It is at the heart of the Black Lives Matter movement, in its demands for police defunding and demilitarisation, and a halt to prison construction.

As this book shows, abolitionism and feminism stand shoulder-to-shoulder in fighting a common cause: the end of the carceral state, with its key role in perpetuating violence, both public and private, in prisons, in police forces, and in people's homes. Abolitionist theories and practices are at their most compelling when they are feminist; and a feminism that is also abolitionist is the most inclusive and persuasive version of feminism for these times. ABOLITION.

Art History in Greece

The essays in this volume give the international academic community as broad a picture as possible of the historical development of and the main trends in the history of art in Greece, along with the level of educational achievements in that field. The study of modern European art history has been systematically developed as a specialist discipline both in academia and in the public sphere in Greece since the late 1970s onwards. In recent decades, the history of Western art has begun to be regularly taught in Greek universities, both at undergraduate level and in postgraduate and doctoral programmes. During the same period, an increasing number of Greek art historians have been trained in undergraduate and postgraduate courses at prestigious universities mainly in France, the United Kingdom, Germany and the United States, thus contributing, if they return to work in their native land, to a multifaceted updating of the theoretical and methodological tools of art history in Greece. The ideological issues and objective difficulties of establishing art history into an academic discipline in Greece are presented in great detail in the pages of this volume, while the theoretical and methodological directions taken both in historiography and in academic teaching, are also thoroughly examined. Alongside these, there is some discussion on the attempts made over the last twenty years to form a permanent academic community through positive action, such as holding regular conferences, academic colloquia and lectures, under the aegis of the Association of Greek Art Historians.

Athens in Poems: An imaginative map of the city

Μια έκδοση με ποιήματα γνωστών Ελλήνων ποιητών και ποιητριών από το τέλος του 19ου αιώνα έως σήμερα, μεταφρασμένα στα αγγλικά. Στην έκδοση υπάρχει ειδικό τμήμα με ιστορικά και άλλα στοιχεία για κάθε σημείο της Αθήνας που αναφέρεται μέσα στα ποιήματα, δημιουργώντας έτσι έναν "χάρτη", χρήσιμο για κάθε επισκέπτη της πόλης. Επιπλέον η έκδοση συνοδεύεται από βιβλιογραφία και βιογραφικά στοιχεία των ποιητών και ποιητριών. Athens in Poems reveals the glorious palimpsest that is Athens mapping the city one poem at a time from the 1880s to 2010s. Walk through the streetscapes of Athens, reflect on the city’s historical development and see how poetry becomes attentive to the dynamic instability of the urban space. Watch as the city is built with language and create your own imaginative map of Athens. Wander around Athens of the 1880s, imagine the circular Omonia Square of the 1930s, visit the Shooting Range of Kaisariani during the Nazi Occupation and reach the gate of the Polytechnic School in the 1970s. Look at the capital as a huge fish tank in the 1980s, discover the bastion of Kokkinia, get to love the city’s concrete block of flats and pause for a while to have a glass of ouzo at the Athens Railway Station. Have a quick stop at the Perama district just off Pireaus and, at the start ofn a new century, find a chrysalis beneath Acharnon Avenue and voyage in Athens as in an ocean you can call your own. This is a map of Athens you may call your own.
