This compact, indispensable overview answers a vexed question: Why do so many works of modern and postmodern literature and art seem designed to appear 'strange', and how can they still cause pleasure in the beholder? To help overcome the initial barrier caused by this 'strangeness', the general reader is given an initial, non-technical description of the 'aesthetic of the strange' as it is experienced in the reading or viewing process. There follows a broad survey of modern and postmodern trends, illustrating their staggering variety and making plain the manifold methods and strategies adopted by writers and artists to 'make it strange'. The book closes with a systematic summary of the theoretical underpinnings of the 'aesthetic of the strange', focussing on the ways in which it differs from both the earlier 'aesthetic of the beautiful' and the 'aesthetic of the sublime'. It is made amply clear that the strangeness characteristic of modern and postmodern art has ushered in an entirely new, 'third' kind of aesthetic – one that has undergone further transformation over the past two decades. Beyond its usefulness as a practical introduction to the 'aesthetic of the strange', the present study also takes up the most recent, cutting-edge aspects of scholarly debate, while initiates are offered an original approach to the theoretical implications of this seminal phenomenon.

A richly illustrated look at some of the most important photobooks of the 20th century France experienced a golden age of photobook production from the late 1920s through the 1950s. Avant-garde experiments in photography, text, design, and printing, within the context of a growing modernist publishing scene, contributed to an outpouring of brilliantly designed books. Making Strange offers a detailed examination of photobook innovation in France, exploring seminal publications by Brassaï, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank, Pierre Jahan, William Klein, and Germaine Krull. Kim Sichel argues that these books both held a mirror to their time and created an unprecedented modernist visual language. Sichel provides an engaging analysis through the lens of materiality, emphasizing the photobook as an object with which the viewer interacts haptically as well as visually. Rich in historical context and beautifully illustrated, Making Strange reasserts the role of French photobooks in the history of modern art.

Making Strange: The Chara Schreyer Collection brings together more than two hundred iconic art works that each in their own way ask us to reconsider how we look at the world. How do artists challenge us to see the everyday world around us with fresh eyes? How do they make our world strange? Making Strange: The Chara Schreyer Collection brings together nearly 250 art works spanning the course of more than 100 years of history that each in their own way ask us to reconsider how we look at the world. Brought together by Chara Schreyer over the course of three decades, the works in this volume invite us to rethink our perception of the everyday in the wake of Marcel Duchamp's radical re-imagination of the object of art and the Russian revolutionary-era literary critic Viktor Shklovsky's conception of "making strange." Whether looking at the idea of "making strange" in the work of Duchamp and Georgia O'Keefe, the legacy of minimalism and its discontents in the sculptures of Donald Judd and Felix Gonzalez Torres, the idea of disaster in America as seen through the eyes of Andy Warhol and Kara Walker, the concrete uses of language in the works of Lawrence Weiner and Glenn Ligon, or the restaging of life through the photographic medium in artists from Diane Arbus to Cindy Sherman, the essays in this catalogue reevaluate the relationship between art and the world and offer a new perspective on the personal act of collecting.

This book examines the meaning and implications of the sociological maxim, ‘make the familiar strange’. Addressing the methodological questions of why and how sociologists should make the familiar strange, what it means to ‘make the familiar strange’, and how this approach benefits sociological research and theory, it draws on four central concepts: reification, familiarity, strangeness, and defamiliarization. Through a typology of the notoriously ambiguous concept of reification, the author argues that the primary barrier to sociological knowledge is our experience of the social world as fixed and unchangeable. Thus emerges the importance of constituting the familiar as the strange through a process of social defamiliarization as well as making this process more methodical by reflecting on heuristics and patterns of thinking that render society strange. The first concerted effort to examine an important feature of the sociological imagination, this volume will appeal to sociologists of any specialty and theoretical persuasion.

This volume juxtaposes for the first time two striking bodies of work by Delhi-based and internationally recognized contemporary artist Vivan Sundaram. "Gagawaka," the first project, consists of twenty-seven sculptural garments made from a bizarre assortment of recycled materials including foam cups, surgical masks, tire tubes, tampons, X-ray film, bandages, bras, foil pill wrappers, and drain pipes. These garments evoke a relationship both playful and subversive to fashion, haute couture, the runway, and the brand. The second project, "Postmortem," is a collection of haunting sculptural objects composedof mannequins, tailor's dummies, wooden props, and models of human organs and bones. "Postmortem" questions the spectacle of "Gagawaka" with a wider set ofcommentaries about the human body and social concerns related to aging, illness, and death.

From one of our preeminent neuroscientists: a landmark reflection that spans the biological and social sciences, offering a new way of understanding the origins of life, feeling, and culture. The Strange Order of Things is a pathbreaking investigation into homeostasis, the condition of that regulates human physiology within the range that makes possible not only the survival but also the flourishing of life. Antonio Damasio makes clear that we descend biologically, psychologically, and even socially from a long lineage that begins with single living cells; that our minds and cultures are linked by an invisible thread to the ways and means of ancient unicellular life and other primitive life-forms; and that inherent in our very chemistry is a powerful force, a striving toward life maintenance that governs life in all its guises, including the development of genes that help regulate and transmit life. In The Strange Order of Things, Damasio gives us a new way of comprehending the world and our place in it.

The relationship of the Strange Woman and Woman Wisdom, separate but inseparable in Proverbs 1-9, is the book's analytic starting point, becoming a hermeneutical lens for viewing other texts of strangeness-of gender, ethnicity, sexuality, and cultic activity. Wisdom and strangeness mark the narratives of Samson and Solomon, while priestly literature sets strangeness against holiness. Miriam and Dinah, sisters of cultic eponyms Aaron and Levi, are Israelite women defiled or unclean, made strange. Priestly and wisdom constructions of gendered strangeness intersect, illuminating the ideologies of identity that develop in the postexilic period and that shape the beginnings of the biblical canon. >
