Submission to pain was required. Nothing could be more removed from twentieth and twenty-first century understandings, where pain is regarded as an unremitting evil to be 'fought'. Focusing on the English-speaking world, this book tells the story of pain since the eighteenth century, addressing fundamental questions about the experience and nature of suffering over the last three centuries. How have those in pain interpreted their suffering - and how have these interpretations changed over time? How have people learnt to conduct themselves when suffering? How do friends and family react? And what about medical professionals: should they immerse themselves in the suffering person or is the best response a kind of professional detachment? As Joanna Bourke shows in this fascinating investigation, people have come up with many different answers to these questions over time. And a history of pain can tell us a great deal about how we might respond to our own suffering in the present - and, just as importantly, to the suffering of those around us.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 10:49:18 AEDT ]]> Wartime rape: the politics of making visible /manager/Repository/uon:31569 Sat 24 Mar 2018 10:49:16 AEDT ]]> Phantom suffering: amputees, stump pain and phantom sensations in modern Britain /manager/Repository/uon:31565 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:45:04 AEDT ]]> Gender roles in killing zones /manager/Repository/uon:31568 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:45:03 AEDT ]]> Why history hurts /manager/Repository/uon:31570 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:45:03 AEDT ]]> Killing in a posthuman world: the philosophy and practice of critical military history /manager/Repository/uon:31674 The Posthuman (2013), she writes that "the advocates of advanced capitalism seem to be faster in grasping the creative potential of the posthuman than some of the well-meaning and progressive neo-humanism opponents of the system." When looking at the new militaries of the twenty-first century, her observation points to a very real crisis in critical feminist thinking and practice. New military technologies have already dislodged the centrality of the human in the process of waging war. Drones, robotics, chemical alteration of brain states, and sophisticated psychological manipulation are now at the heart of modern warfare. At a time when thanatopolitical biopolitical practices are dominating military research and practice, scholars need to follow Braidotti's nomadic journey toward a critical posthumanism.]]> Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:44:50 AEDT ]]> Pain, sympathy and the medical encounter between the mid eighteenth and the mid twentieth centuries /manager/Repository/uon:31797 Sat 24 Mar 2018 08:42:47 AEDT ]]> What is pain?
