Feminism's Empire (Cornell UP, 2022) investigates the complex relationships between imperialisms and feminisms in the late nineteenth century and demonstrates the challenge of conceptualizing "pro-imperialist" and "anti-imperialist" as binary positions. By intellectually and spatially tracing the era's first French feminists' engagement with empire, Carolyn J. Eichner explores how feminists opposed—yet employed—approaches to empire in writing, speaking, and publishing. In differing ways, they ultimately tied forms of imperialism to gender liberation. Among the era's first anti-imperialists, French feminists were enmeshed in the hierarchies and epistemologies of empire. They likened their gender-based marginalization to imperialist oppressions. Imperialism and colonialism's gendered and sexualized racial hierarchies established categories of inclusion and exclusion that rested in both universalism and ideas of "nature" that presented colonized people with theoretical, yet impossible, paths to integration. Feminists faced similar barriers to full incorporation due to the gendered contradictions inherent in universalism. The system presumed citizenship to be male and thus positioned women as outsiders. Feminism's Empire connects this critical struggle to hierarchical power shifts in racial and national status that created uneasy linkages between French feminists and imperial authorities. Dr. Carolyn J. Eichner about is a Professor of History and Women's and Gender Studies at the University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee. Feminism's Empire is her third book. Surmounting the Barricades: Women in the Paris Commune came out in 2004 and The Paris Commune: A Brief History came out in 2022. Surmounting the Barricades: Women in the Paris Commune was published in French as Franchir les barricades: les femmes dans la Commune de Paris (Éditions de la Sorbonne, 2020). Translated by Bastien Craipain, it was a finalist for the Prix Augustin Thierry in 2021, an award from the city of Paris for a historical study concerning the period between Antiquity and the late 19th century. In 2022-2023 she will be a Fulbright Research scholar in France and will be in residence at the Camargo Foundation in Cassis. Michael G. Vann is a professor of world history at California State University, Sacramento.

New Books in Genocide Studies
Jonathan Leader Maynard, "Ideology and Mass Killing: The Radicalized Security Politics of Genocides and Deadly Atrocities" (Oxford UP, 2022)

New Books in Genocide Studies

In research on 'mass killings' such as genocides and campaigns of state terror, the role of ideology is hotly debated. For some scholars, ideologies are crucial in providing the extremist goals and hatreds that motivate ideologically committed people to kill. But many other scholars are skeptical: contending that perpetrators of mass killing rarely seem ideologically committed, and that rational self-interest or powerful forms of social pressure are more important drivers of violence than ideology. In Ideology and Mass Killing: The Radicalized Security Politics of Genocides and Deadly Atrocities (Oxford University Press, 2022), Dr. Jonathan Leader Maynard challenges both these prevailing views, advancing an alternative 'neo-ideological' perspective which systematically retheorises the key ideological foundations of large-scale violence against civilians. Integrating cutting-edge research from multiple disciplines, including political science, political psychology, history and sociology, Ideology and Mass Killing demonstrates that ideological justifications vitally shape such violence in ways that go beyond deep ideological commitment. Most disturbingly of all, the key ideological foundations of mass killings are found to lie, not in extraordinary political goals or hatreds, but in radicalised versions of those conventional, widely accepted ideas that underpin the politics of security in ordinary societies across the world. This study then substantiates this account by a detailed examination of four contrasting cases of mass killing - Stalinist Repression in the Soviet Union between 1930 and 1938, the Allied Bombing Campaign against Germany and Japan in World War II from 1940 to 1945, mass atrocities in the Guatemalan Civil War between 1978 and 1983, and the Rwandan Genocide in 1994. This represents the first volume to offer a dedicated, comparative theory of ideology's role in mass killing, while also developing a powerful new account of how ideology affects violence and politics more generally. This interview was conducted by Dr. Miranda Melcher whose doctoral work focused on post-conflict military integration, understanding treaty negotiation and implementation in civil war contexts, with qualitative analysis of the Angolan and Mozambican civil wars.

Skye C. Cleary is a philosopher, writer and university teacher. In her new book How to Be Authentic: Simone de Beauvoir and the Quest for Fulfillment (St. Martin's Press, 2022) offers an introduction to Beauvoir's thinking about authenticity and how experience and situation shape the people we become. For Beauvoir, as an existential philosopher, we first exist and spend our lives not uncovering who we are but constructing our identity. Authenticity is the pursuit of self-creation and self-renewal. Under patriarchy women receive a set of myths that stand in the way of taking responsibility for our freedom. Through the experiences and the milestones of friendship, love, marriage, children and confronting death we have opportunity to choose who we will become. Because we live in interdependence with others, Beauvoir's philosophy of the self and genuine living allows others to also achieve freedom in self-creation through reciprocity. Cleary has given us a lively written book drawing not only from Beauvoir's life but her own experience in self-creation. Lilian Calles Barger is a cultural, intellectual and gender historian. Her most recent book is entitled The World Come of Age: An Intellectual History of Liberation Theology (Oxford University Press, 2018). Her current writing project is on the cultural and intellectual history of women and the origins of feminism seen through the emblematic life and work of Simone de Beauvoir.

Bio:   Dr. Mikhail (Misha) Kogan, MD, ABIOM, RCST is a leader in the newly established field of Integrative Geriatrics.  He is the chief editor of the first definitive textbook of the field entitled “Integrative Geriatric Medicine”, published by Oxford University Press as part of Andrew Weil Integrative Medicine Library series and is frequent speaker at a variety of international conferences on the topics of Integrative Medicine, Geriatrics, healthy aging, as well as medical cannabis.   While Dr. Kogan's main medical cannabis expertise is in treating older patients and palliating symptoms at end of life he also treats a wide arrange of internal medicine problems from chronic GI problems to cancers where use of medical cannabis can be very beneficial.  In October 2021 Dr. Kogan, in collaboration with Dr. Joan Liebmann-Smith and Penguin Random Publishing House, published Medical Marijuana, Dr Kogan's Evidence-Based guide to the health benefits of cannabis and CBD. Dr. Kogan currently serves as medical director of the GW Center for Integrative Medicine, associate professor of medicine in the division of Geriatric and Palliative Care, and associate director of the Geriatrics and Integrative Medicine Fellowship Programs and director of Integrative Medicine Track program at the George Washington University (GWU) School of Medicine. Dr. Kogan is also the founder and the executive director of AIM Health Institute, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area that provides integrative medicine services to low-income and terminally ill patients regardless of their ability to pay.  Questions:   Background   You have a diverse and impressive background, including integrative medicine, serving as an Associate Professor of Medicine at George Washington University, founder of a health nonprofit, and author. So cutting to the chase, what has gotten you to the place where you're one of the leading medical experts on cannabis? People have all sorts of associations with cannabis, mostly around its reputation as an illicit substance. Of course now it's being legalized for recreational use in many places around the world. Can you speak to its use for medicinal purposes? What's the medical backstory of cannabis? Maybe we can shift to a little rudimentary chemistry and biology to understand how cannabis works medically. Can you provide a layman's explanation of the human endocannabinoid system, how the cannabis plant interacts with it, and the difference between CBD and THC?   Dispelling Myths   There are a number of perceptions around cannabis and its use, and I wanted to see if we could validate or dispel some of them: Firstly, is cannabis a gateway to harder drugs? Is it safe to use? Are there side effects? What about the argument about how effective it truly is for medical use? Can you speak to the efficacy ranges for cannabinoids? Is there an evidence base to suggest cannabis is effective as a medical treatment?   Cannabis and MS   If we shift the focus to MS, can cannabis be helpful? How does cannabis impact MS spasticity? And what about using it for pain management. Does it alleviate pain that may be associated with MS? So are there any downsides to using cannabis as part of an MS treatment regimen? Perhaps adverse interactions with DMDs? Which cannabinoids should someone be taking to get an anti-inflammatory effect? How do you prescribe or recommend the use of cannabis in your own medical practice? Maybe put another way, how does someone determine if they're a good candidate to use cannabis medically? The organization behind this podcast, Overcoming MS, is a big advocate of healthy lifestyle choices. How does cannabis fit with healthy lifestyle choice in your view, Misha?   The Future of Cannabis   What is the current research activity around cannabis? Anything we should be aware of down the pike? What does the future hold for using cannabinoids for disease modification? And lastly, your book. You've just released a new book called Medical Marijuana. There's a link in the show notes for more information and where to buy it. Can you tell us a bit about the project, what it's about beyond what the title implies, what kind of impact you hope it will have? Thanks so much for being our guest on Living Well with MS, Dr. Misha Kogan. We are thrilled to learn about the amazing work you're doing to help people navigate the intricacies and benefits of medical marijuana. And I encourage everyone to learn more about you and your work by checking out the links and more in our show notes for this episode.

Since starting my work at Baylor I've had the opportunity to get to know Paul Putz and his work with the Faith and Sports Institute, and he is one of my favorite people to follow on Twitter @p_emory. This is just a continuation of conversations we've had about youth sports in particular. Keep an eye out for his book coming in 2023. Paul Putz serves as Assistant Director of the Faith & Sports Institute, where he helps to lead and develop online programming and curriculum as well as assisting with communications and strategic planning. Paul received his bachelor's degree in secondary education from Grace University, where he played basketball. He went on to get a PhD in history from Baylor. He has over a decade of experience as an educator in the high school and college classroom and his research and writing has been featured at Christianity Today, Slate, National Public Radio, Religion News Service, and more. His first book, which explores the history of sports and Christianity in modern American culture, is under contract with Oxford University Press.

Spoken by a quarter of the world's population, English is today's lingua franca--its common tongue. The language of business, popular media, and international politics, English has become commodified for its economic value and increasingly detached from any particular nation. This meteoric "rise of English" has many obvious benefits to communication. Tourists can travel abroad with greater ease. Political leaders can directly engage their counterparts. Researchers can collaborate with foreign colleagues. Business interests can flourish in the global economy. But the rise of English has very real downsides at times generating intense legal conflicts. In Europe, imperatives of political integration, job mobility, and university rankings compete with pride in national language and heritage as countries like France attempt to curb its spread. In countries like India, South Africa, Morocco, and Rwanda, it has stratified society along lines of English proficiency and devalued commonly spoken languages. In Anglophone countries like the United States and England, English isolates us from the cultural and economic benefits of speaking other languages. In The Rise of English: Global Politics and the Power of Language (Oxford University Press, 2021), Dr. Rosemary Salomone offers a commanding view of the unprecedented spread of English and the far-reaching effects it has on global and local politics, economics, media, education, and business. From the inner workings of the European Union to China's use of language as "soft power" in Africa, Salomone draws on a wealth of research to tell the complex story of English--and, ultimately, to argue for English not as a force for domination but as a core component of multilingualism and the transcendence of linguistic and cultural borders. This interview was conducted by Dr. Miranda Melcher whose doctoral work focused on post-conflict military integration, understanding treaty negotiation and implementation in civil war contexts, with qualitative analysis of the Angolan and Mozambican civil wars.
