Death, Memorialization and Deviant Spaces
This book offers an ethnographic exploration of three sites of infamous atrocity and their differing memorialization. `Dark tourism' research has studied the consumerization of spaces associated with death and barbarity, whilst `difficult heritage' has looked at politicized, national debates that surround the preservation of death. This book contributes to these debates by applying spatial theory on a scalar level, particularly through the work of Henri Lefebvre. It uses escalating case studies to situate memorialization, and the multifarious demands of politics, consumption and community, within a framework that rearticulates `lived', `perceived' and `conceived' aspects of deviant spaces ranging from the small (a bench) to the very large (a city). The first case study, the Tyburn gallows site in York, uses Lefebvre's notion of `theatrical space' to contextualize the role of performativity in memorialization. The second, Number 25 Cromwell Street in Gloucester, builds on this by exploring the absence of memorialization through Lefebvre's concept of `contradictory space' and the impact this has on consumption. The third expands to consider the city as a problematic memorial, here focusing on the political subjectivities of Dresden - rebuilt following the devastation of the Second World War - and its contemporary associations with neo-Nazi and anti-fascist protests. Ultimately, by examining the issue of scale in heritage, the book seeks to develop a new way of unpacking and understanding the heteroglossic nature of deviant space and memorialization.

Rebuilding an Enlightened World: Folklorizing America
Today, the long-assumed belief in the permanence of an enlightened world is suddenly open to challenge. Human rights, participatory government, and social justice are losing global influence, and the world of ordinary people is pushing back against Enlightenment conceits. Accumulated anger links Taliban, Tea Party, and Trump, threatening women's rights, social justice, and democracy. To understand and counteract the threat to these ideas, we must set aside embedded explanations and embrace a new frame of observation and tolerance grounded in the power of belief, legend, and tradition. In Rebuilding an Enlightened World, Bill Ivey explores how folklore offers a unique and compelling new way to understand the underlying forces disrupting the world today. If we are to salvage the best of the Enlightenment dream and build a better future, we must begin to listen, patiently and inquisitively, in order to interpret the customs, norms, and traditional practices that shape all human behavior.

The Sultanate of Oman and Portugal are connected by a long shared history which until now has received little attention. After Vasco da Gama had rounded the Cape of Good Hope in 1498 and extended the Portuguese colonial empire to India, a constant conflict began between the two naval powers. In 1507 the Portuguese occupied the coast of Oman, remaining for a good hundred years until the united Omani tribes drove the Europeans from there and out of their East African possessions and became colonial rulers themselves. In 2004 a major research undertaking began on the initiative of the Omani Ministry for Foundations and Religious Affairs. The aim was to find documents in Portuguese archives which had as their subject the Sultanate of Oman and its cities and regions, and thus to record the encounter between the two cultures in the 16th century and their common history until the 18th century. Following publication of the 16-volume facsimile edition, the transcriptions of the old Portuguese manuscripts now follow, with translations into modern English and Arabic. The meticulous notes describe everyday life during the period as well as dramatic highlights such as the retaking of Muscat by the Imam of Nizwa in January 1650. The documents offer unexpected insights into the economic, religious and cultural relations between the two nations and the intensive interactions between East and West in the early modern age. The texts in the volume are arranged in three parallel columns so that the sections can be seen side by side. To supplement the critical textual controls made during the course of transcription each document can be seen in facsimile. This critical edition of the sources (1,500 documents on over 8,000 pages) offers both researchers and the general public for the first time a corpus of primary sources which is unique in its breadth and thematic focus. Portugal in the Sea of Oman is a scholarly treatment of archival material. It is a contribution to a better understanding of both eastern and western perspectives of each other.

Look Who's Cooking: The Rhetoric of American Home Cooking Traditions in the Twenty-First Century
Home cooking is a multibillion-dollar industry that includes cookbooks, kitchen gadgets, high-end appliances, specialty ingredients, and more. Cooking-themed programming flourishes on television, inspiring a wide array of celebrity chef-branded goods even as self-described foodies seek authenticity by pickling, preserving, and canning foods in their own home kitchens. Despite this, claims that no one has time to cook anymore are common, lamenting the slow extinction of traditional American home cooking in the twenty-first century. In Look Who's Cooking: The Rhetoric of American Home Cooking Traditions in the Twenty-First Century, author Jennifer Rachel Dutch explores the death of home cooking, revealing how modern changes transformed cooking at home from an odious chore into a concept imbued with deep meanings associated with home, family, and community. Drawing on a wide array of texts-cookbooks, advertising, YouTube videos, and more-Dutch analyzes the many manifestations of traditional cooking in America today. She argues that what is missing from the discourse around home cooking is an understanding of skills and recipes as a form of folklore. Dutch's research reveals that home cooking is a powerful vessel that Americans fill with meaning because it represents both the continuity of the past and adaptability to the present. Home cooking is about much more than what is for dinner; it's about forging a connection to the past, displaying the self in the present, and leaving a lasting legacy for the future.
