On the premise that words have the power to make worlds, each essay in this book follows a word as it travels around the globe and across time. Scholars from five disciplines address thirteen societies to highlight the social and political life of words in Asia, Europe, and the Middle East, from the mid-nineteenth century to the present. The approach is consciously experimental, in that rigorously tracking specific words in specific settings frequently leads in unexpected directions and alters conventional depictions of global modernity. Such words as security in Brazil, responsibility in Japan, community in Thailand, and hijāb in France changed the societies in which they moved even as the words were changed by them. Some words threatened to launch wars, as injury did in imperial Britain’s relations with China in the nineteenth century. Others, such as secularism, worked in silence to agitate for political change in twentieth-century Morocco. Words imposed or imported from abroad could be transformed by those who wielded them to oppose the very powers that first introduced them, as happened in Turkey, Indonesia, and the Philippines. Taken together, this selection of fourteen essays reveals commonality as well as distinctiveness across modern societies, making the world look different from the interdisciplinary and transnational perspective of “words in motion.” Contributors.

I call my book, Words in Motion for many reasons..These words/set in poem are written about everything from birth, to death, marriage, anniversaries, religion, personal, Ordinations, and yes, even political. They were written for friends, family, loved ones, and many at the request of strangers...Many said they found consolation, peace, and comfort in these poems.. I thank God for giving me these words...I promised God my Devotion and He gave me the words to write, to Put into Motion. I feel that God has given to me a “Gift”, if you will, to be able to express in words, the pain/happiness/ and sadness of others, even to giving words to them from a loved one who has passed on I have even been given words of things regarding freedom of speech or the right to worship in our own way, about Prayer and War. Yes, someone once said that The Pen is Mightier than the Sword, and I truly believe that to be very true, especially when God is guiding every stroke of the pen, so, I pray that you can identify with, or find comfort in any of these poems that I have written with much Love and Devotion I give to you my last book... WORDS IN MOTION From Birth, to Death, and Life in Between

This book rethinks the Armenian people as significant actors in the context of Mediterranean and global history. Spanning a millennium of cross-cultural interaction and exchange across the Mediterranean world, essays move between connected histories, frontier studies, comparative literature, and discussions of trauma, memory, diaspora, and visual culture. Contributors dismantle narrow, national ways of understanding Armenian literature; propose new frameworks for mapping the post-Ottoman Mediterranean world; and navigate the challenges of writing national history in a globalized age. A century after the Armenian genocide, this book reimagines the borders of the “Armenian,” pointing to a fresh vision for the field of Armenian studies that is omnivorously comparative, deeply interconnected, and rich with possibility.
