A just and sustainable peace for Syria can only be attained through the equal participation of women’s rights defenders at the negotiation table and throughout the transitional process. Understanding the legal framework within which such participation takes place – and the challenges of promoting women’s rights through a gender-responsive constitution – is crucial. This publication, resulting from a collaboration between Euromed Feminist Initiative and the University of Padova, builds on the knowledge of academics and advocates, shedding new insights on those challenges. It aims at supporting institutional efforts being made to guarantee women’s participation in the Syrian reconstruction, as well as advocacy initiatives carried out to ensure women’s participation in political and economic decision-making in the country’s future.

Art, the Sublime, and Movement

Author: Amanda du Preez

Publisher: Routledge

Category: Art

This book is a critical interdisciplinary approach to the study of contemporary visual culture and image studies, exploring ideas about space and place and ultimately contributing to the debates about being human in the digital age. The upward and downward pull seem in a constant contest for humanity’s attention. Both forces are powerful in the effects and affects they invoke. When tracing this iconological history, Amanda du Preez starts in the early nineteenth century, moving into the twentieth century and then spanning the whole century up to contemporary twenty-first century screen culture and space travels. Du Preez parses the intersecting pathways between Heaven and Earth, up and down, flying and falling through the concept of being “spaced out”. The idea of being “spaced out” is applied as a metaphor to trace the visual history of sublime encounters that displace Earth, gravity, locality, belonging, home, real life, and embodiment. The book will be of interest to scholars working in art history, visual culture, media and cultural studies, phenomenology, digital culture, mobility studies, and urban studies.

The next night, she went to another bar that has live bands. She had no luck but didn't want to give-up yet. She can't get him off her mind. That gaunt face, dark hair and the dreamy eyes that was shadowed by his eyebrows. Oh, that handsome face, Deborah thought with desire. She did not care that she was looking for him everywhere and she was a woman, the guy was a hero and he saved her life; There's something poetic about him. Deborah bet he is a very good and romantic man. Deborah moves on her chair. "Are you okay honey?" asked her father William Cunningham. "Yes dad," came her reply, still with a faraway." "You must be thinking of Clide huh?" William leaned closer from across the table. "He really sounded sincere. I think he was close to tears when he talked to me." "I don't know dad," Deborah said with a dismissive sight. "But . . ." "Listen dad," Deborah said more firmly. "I need time to think. I hope you understand." "Okay," said William with resignation. "I understand. You're mad at him. It takes time to get over what he'd done. I'm just worried that you won't get married. I mean, you're past the marrying age already. Three years from now, you're going to be thirty." " I know that dad," said Deborah burdened by having to say it again. "And I thought that Clide was the one-but, he just betrayed my trust. You know how Iam about trust." Deborah wished she could leave now and be somewhere where she would be left with her thoughts and fantasize about that mysterious man. She felt a stirring in her groin every time she thinks of him. God, when am I going to find him? Deborah desperately wanted some hope just so she could go on. Then she'd find him and thank him or something. Don't joke yourself Deborah, you want more than that. Deborah smiled. "What's that smile all about?" William asked. Deborah felt herself blush. "Nothing dad . . ." she said quickly. "Listen, I have a lot to do in the office." "Honey, are you even listening to what I said?"
