1. Davis, Amira. "Exploring the Secret Life of B’s: (Honey)Bees, B*tches, and a Bricoleur" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Tenth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2019-05-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p728171_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: As a researcher, my methodologies are informed by my position as an African American mother, intellectual, artist, and cultural worker within bourgeois, patriarchal, white supremacy. This work is a bricolage, combining interpretive analysis, autoethnography, Africana Feminism, Critical Race Theory, performance, and ethnography to explore the similarities of the crises in populations of honeybees and African American women. The data is based on a community-based, intergenerational performance of Black women and girls entitled “Yeye,” a praisename for the Yoruba goddess of love, motherhood, and marriage, Oshun meaning “the great mother” and field research investigating the embodied effects of state-sponsored and neighborhood violence on single, Black mothers. I read these disparate elements through 19 year old Collette Harmon’s poem, “The Secret Life of B’s,” in which she juxtaposes honeybees – their importance to human existence and their declining numbers due to environmental changes – with Black women’s (mis)representations and current material realties.

Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: In 1885, at the tender age of fifteen, one Pyāre Lāl, son of a landowner in the village of Barotha near Aligarh, published a textbook of mathematics. It met with little success, but this did not deter the young author; over the next two decades, Pyāre Lāl would write dozens of books about everything from gardening and agriculture to sex and the afterlife. The result is a veritable library of textbooks, technical manuals, and volumes of general knowledge in Urdu and various forms of Hindi. From this substantial but little-studied archive and its creator’s extensive ruminations on its purpose and intended audiences, much can be learned about the engagement of provincial elites with both Western learning and modern “scientific” information on the one hand and indigenous knowledge systems on the other. Rather than a mere project of translation, Pyāre Lāl’s work represents a sustained and sophisticated effort to render both foreign and indigenous elite discourses culturally and linguistically accessible to a local general public, a process driven by both an idealist vision of national uplift through the dissemination of knowledge and the practical need to find and cultivate a reading and book-buying audience. While a number of academic works have recently traced these aspects of the emerging Hindi and Urdu publishing industry, little attention has been paid to the particular case of technical literatures with their explicit mandate to instruct and educate; the voluminous corpus of Pyāre Lāl’s writings serves as a case study to begin to fill this gap.

3. Wåghäll Nivre, Elisabeth. "Bücher unterwegs: Die Plünderung deutscher Büchersammlungen durch die Schweden im 30-jährigen Krieg" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Humboldt University of Berlin, Berlin, Germany, <Not Available>. 2019-05-19 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p751621_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: Die Erbeutung der Sammlungen wohlhabender Klöster, Fürsten- und Königshöfe in Deutschland und anderen Ländern Europas sollte im 17. Jahrhundert Schweden dazu verhelfen nicht nur politisch-militärisch als Großmacht aufzutreten, sondern auch kulturell zu blühen. Im Fokus des Vortrages steht ein Kulturtransfer im Ostseeraum, der nicht selten mit Gewalt durchgesetzt wurde. Es geht um die Bedeutung des Beutenehmens, um die Plünderung ausländischer Bibliotheken und Archive, um aus einem kleinen Land am Rande Europas, das noch am Anfang des 17. Jahrhunderts nur eine Universität hatte, seine wenigen Buchdrucker – wie auch viele Gelehrte und Handwerker – aus Deutschland geholt hat, das aber durch expansive Außenpolitik sowohl auf eine politische als kulturelle Vormachtstellung Anspruch erhoben hat, ein kulturelles Zentrum zu machen. Ziel der Präsentation ist es, einige grundlegende Fragestellungen aufzugreifen, die berücksichtigt und problematisiert werden müssen, wenn wir die Plünderungen der Schweden mit dem Aspekt des Sammelns verbinden.
