Inspired by the “technologies of the self” theorized by Michel Foucault in the early 1980s, this volume investigates how contemporary individuals fashion their identity/identities using digital technologies such as ambient intelligent devices, social networking platforms and online communities (Facebook, CouchSurfing and craigslist), online gaming (SilkRoad Online, Oblivion and World of Warcraft), podcasts, etc. With high-speed internet access, ubiquitous computing and generous storage capacity, the opportunities for staging and transforming the self/selves have become nearly limitless. This book explores how technologies contribute to the expression, (co-)construction and enactment of identities. It examines these issues from various perspectives as it brings together insights from different disciplines – design, discourse analysis, philosophy and sociology.

“So true to mixed experience, it feels defiant.” –Sofia Samatar, winner of the World Fantasy Award In this timely and instantly notable fiction debut, Haris Durrani immerses readers in the life of a young American Muslim struggling to understand himself in the context of his family, classmates, and contemporary urban life. Engineering student Jihad, or “Joe” as he introduces himself in the confusing intersections of post 9/11 New York City, finds himself on a personal quest of possibly a spiritual nature, even if he isn’t sure that’s what it is – after all, it’s hard enough to keep halal in his Dominican-Pakistani-Muslim Washington Heights household. He’s surprised to find himself in the stories his Uncle Tomás tells of his own youth, stories in which Tomás fights both the devil and the weaknesses of the flesh – often at the same time. Culture, nation, religion, family, identity, race, and time battle for dominion over Jihad until he realizes he is facing the same demon his uncle claims to have defeated, and all Jihad has to fight with is himself. Durrani's stories, memoirs, and essays have appeared in Analog Science Fiction and Fact, The University of Toronto Undergraduate Journal of Middle East Studies, The 2014 Campbellian Anthology, The New York Review of Science Fiction, and The Best Teen Writing of 2012, 2011, and 2010. He writes monthly for altMuslimah and has appeared regularly on John Hockenberry’s NPR show The Takeaway.

This book focuses on Foucault’s later work and his (re)turn to ‘the hermeneutics of the subject’, exploring the implications of his thinking for education, pedagogy, and related disciplines. What and who is the subject of education and what are the forms of self-constitution? Chapters investigate Foucault’s notion of ‘the culture of self’ in relation to questions concerning truth (parrhesia or free speech) and subjectivity, especially with reference to the literary genres of confession and biography, and the contemporary political forms of individualization (governmentality).

Die unmögliche Stadt Es gibt sie wirklich, die Stadt am Ende der Zeit - zumindest behauptet das eine skurrile Kleinanzeige in einer Seattler Zeitung, die auch nur von skurrilen Menschen gelesen wird. Doch als drei dieser Leser auf die Anzeige antworten, beginnt eines der fantastischsten Abenteuer, das je erzählt wurde. Denn es gibt sie wirklich, die Stadt am Ende der Zeit. Eine Stadt, deren Technologie so weit fortgeschritten ist, dass man sie von Magie kaum mehr unterscheiden kann. Eine Stadt, in die sich die letzten Lebewesen eines sterbenden Universums geflüchtet haben. Eine Stadt, die nun Kontakt mit der Gegenwart aufnimmt – um zu retten, was wir als »Mensch« bezeichnen.

What does sexiness mean today? Has sexiness become something that is bought and sold? What identity effects does a sexiness informed by consumer culture have? This book addresses these questions, off the back of a heightened visibility of 'sex', 'sexiness', and 'sexualization' in everyday life.

Maria Tamboukou links Foucauldian ideas to feminism and education. Its central argument is that the Foucauldian notion of 'technologies of the self' needs to be gendered and contextualized. This argument is pursued through a genealogical analysis of autobiographical texts of women educators in the UK at the turn of the nineteenth century. This is a new theoretical approach, since Foucault's work has proved to be of great interest to feminist scholars but as yet, his theories have only intermittently been used in educational feminist work.
