Dear Colleagues,

I would like to bring to your attention a new publication that interests scholars and students alike: Near and Middle Eastern Studies at the Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton: 1935–2018, edited by Sabine Schmidtke (Piscataway NJ: Gorgias Press). This volume compiles contributions by former members of the Institute for Advance Study, Princeton, on varied aspects of Near and Middle Eastern cultures and history. Three contributors are Islamic art historians: Margaret Graves, Emine Fetvaci and myself. 

My contribution, "The Hermeneutics of Islamic Ornament: The Example of the Alhambra", expounds the problems of epistemology and interpretation raised by the study of art in its current state through a critique of the established findings on the Alhambra's architectural decoration. This work partakes of an ongoing research aiming to produce a comprehensive and methodologically up-to-date hermeneutics of Islamic ornament.

For further information about this volume see: https://www.gorgiaspress.com/studying-the-near-and-middle-east-at-the-institute-for-advanced-study-princeton-1935-2018

Warm regards,

Valerie Gonzalez

Dear colleagues:

I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book, Lawyering an Uncertain Cause: Immigration Advocacy and Chinese Youth in the U.S.(Vanderbilt University Press).

With public outrage rightfully centering on the U.S.’ treatment of young migrants and their families, this book explores critical and timely—and largely unconsidered—dimensions of mobility and advocacy:

  • What are the motivations and perspectives of young migrants from regions other than Central America?
  • What compels (and constrains) the legal advocates who work on these youths’ behalf?
  • What are the long-term experiences of young migrants post-release—including the unanticipated consequences of a "successful" legal case?

Contextualized through histories of Chinese emigration, U.S. immigration policy, and ideologies of age and childhood, Lawyering an Uncertain Cause ethnographically traces the practices and aims of immigration cause lawyers alongside the transnational negotiations of their clients: young Chinese migrants who have been apprehended, designated “Unaccompanied,” and placed in removal proceedings. Bringing these perspectives together for the first time, this book subtly illuminates the consequential uncertainty at the heart of lawyering for and around youth mobility.

Written to be accessible and widely read, Lawyering an Uncertain Cause will appeal to scholars and students of immigration, the anthropologies of law and/or childhood, sociolegal studies, labor studies, rural “new destinations,” and Asian studies. It will also be useful to legal practitioners and law students, particularly those interested in immigration law, child welfare, and the legal profession.

 

"A humanistic, wonderfully written, engaging, and terribly important work of scholarship in a crucial area of research."

—Robert Barsky, author of Undocumented Immigrants in an Era of Arbitrary Law: The Flight and the Plight of People Deemed "Illegal”

Dear Colleague,

 

With this issue of Girlhood Studies, we recognize the tenth anniversary of the death of Jackie Kirk, one of the co-founders of the journal. This issue begins with the other co-founding editors' tribute to Jackie, followed by a visual essay "Honoring the Legacy of Jackie Kirk," in which a special international event that took place earlier this year that paid tribute to her work is documented. This tribute is free to access. The articles all relate to girls, education, and social responsibility, very much in keeping with Jackie Kirk's professional life.
