Voice/Presence/Absence collects international contributions from academic scholars and practitioners, together with recorded live performances of artists, writers, musicians and poets, creating the space for a discussion on the role of voice in contemporary humanities.

Voice/Presence/Absence is conceived as a dialogue: between a variety of interpretive frameworks and definitions of voice; between different objects of study (from contemporary art to post-dramatic theatre, from radio-voices to recorded poetry and audio-books, from pop music to novels, from the voice of trees to the one of birds, etc.) and, most important, between artists, performers and the world of academia.

5 In the Absence of Miracles - Michael J Malone
Auteur : Michael J Malone

With no other option than to sell the family home, John sets about packing up everything in the house. In sifting through the detritus of his family's past he's forced to revisit, and revise his childhood. For in a box, in the attic, he finds undeniable truth that he had a brother who disappeared when he himself was only a toddler. A brother no one ever mentioned. A brother he knew absolutely nothing about. A discovery that sets John on a journey from which he may never recover. For sometimes in that space where memory should reside there is nothing but silence, smoke and ash. And in the absence of truth, in the absence of a miracle, we turn to prayer. And to violence. Shocking, chilling and heartbreakingly emotive, In the Absence of Mira

6 An Epidemic of Absence - Moises Velasquez-Manoff
Auteur : Moises Velasquez-Manoff
Genre : Life Sciences
A brilliant, cutting-edge exploration of the dramatic rise of allergic and autoimmune diseases and the controversial, potentially groundbreaking therapies that scientists are developing to correct these disorders

Whether it is asthma, food or pollen allergies, type-1 diabetes, lupus, multiple sclerosis, or Crohn’s disease, everyone knows someone who suffers from an allergic or autoimmune disorder. And if it appears that the prevalence of these maladies has increased recently, that’s because it has—to levels never before seen in human history. These days no fewer than one in five—and likely more—Americans suffers from one of these ailments. We seem newly, and bafflingly, vulnerable to immune system malfunction. Why? Science writer Moises Velasquez-Manoff explains the latest thinking about this problem and explores the remarkable new treatments in the wo

7 The End of Absence - Michael John Harris
Auteur : Michael John Harris
Genre : Sociology
Soon enough, nobody will remember life before the Internet. What does this unavoidable fact mean? Those of us who have lived both with and without the crowded connectivity of online life have a rare opportunity. We can still recognize the difference between Before and After. We catch ourselves idly reaching for our phones at the bus stop. Or we notice how, midconversation, a fumbling friend dives into the perfect recall of Google. In this eloquent and thought-provoking book, Michael Harris argues that amid all the changes we're experiencing, the most interesting is the end of absence-the loss of lack. The daydreaming silences in our lives are filled; the burning solitudes are extinguished. There's no true "free time" when you carry a smartphone. Today's rarest commodity is the chance to be alone with your thoughts. Michael Harris is an award-winning journalist and a contributing edito

8 A Sunlit Absence - Martin Laird
Auteur : Martin Laird
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
"The practice of contemplation is one of the great spiritual arts," writes Martin Laird in A Sunlit Absence. "Not a technique but a skill, it harnesses the winds of grace that lead us out into the liberating sea of silence." In this companion volume to his bestselling Into the Silent Land, Laird focuses on a quality often overlooked by books on Christian meditation: a vast and flowing spaciousness that embraces both silence and sound, and transcends all subject/object dualisms. Drawing on the wisdom of great contemplatives from St. Augustine and St. Teresa of Avila to St. Hesychios, Simone Weil, and many others, Laird shows how we can uncover the deeper levels of awareness that rest within us like buried treasure waiting to be found. The key insight of the book is that as our practice matures, so will our experience of life's ordeals, sorrows, and joys expand into generous, receptive mat

9 Absence - Peter Handke & Ralph Manheim
Auteur : Peter Handke & Ralph Manheim
Genre : Literary
A “challenging and rewarding novel”* from Nobel Prize-winning author Peter Handke.

The time is an unspecified modernity, the place possibly Europe. Absence follows four nameless people -- the old man, the woman, the soldier, and the gambler -- as they journey to a desolate wasteland beyond the limits of an unnamed city.

“In this smoothly written fable, Handke forcefully summons readers to the recognition that the essence of human life lies in the striving for self-expression even though its perfect realization must always remain elusive.”—*Publishers Weekly

"A remarkably abstract book even for the very abstract Handke... Slippery but engrossing work, silkily translated." - Kirkus Reviews

10 Absence of Mind - Marilynne Robinson
Auteur : Marilynne Robinson
Genre : Religion & Spirituality
In this ambitious book, acclaimed writer Marilynne Robinson applies her astute intellect to some of the most vexing topics in the history of human thought—science, religion, and consciousness. Crafted with the same care and insight as her award-winning novels, Absence of Mind challenges postmodern atheists who crusade against religion under the banner of science. In Robinson’s view, scientific reasoning does not denote a sense of logical infallibility, as thinkers like Richard Dawkins might suggest. Instead, in its purest form, science represents a search for answers. It engages the problem of knowledge, an aspect of the mystery of consciousness, rather than providing a simple and final model of reality.

By defending the importance of individual reflection, Robinson celebrates the power and variety of human consciousness in the tradition of William James. She explor

14 Absence of Light: Charlie Fox book 11 - Zoe Sharp
Auteur : Zoe Sharp

15 In the Absence of God - Sam Keen
Auteur : Sam Keen
Genre : Comparative Religion
In his new book, bestselling author Sam Keen challenges the notions and habits we’ve formed about religion over the centuries in order for us to build a deeper faith, that is relevant today.
He asks:

* How has religion failed us?.
* Must we choose between dogmatic religion and atheism?
* How might religion unite rather than divide us?
The answers, Keen discovers, point the way back to the primal emotions, to the life-giving sense of dwelling in the presence of the sacred..
In the Absence of God sets out to recover the elemental experience of the sacred in everyday life. By appreciating emotions like wonder, gratitude, anxiety, joy, grief, reverence, compassion, outrage, hope and humility we may once again find ourselves in the presence of an unknowable but all present G-D. We may also regain the commona

As an adult, he was still living there under horrid conditions. When her grandmother began to ail, Helie became determined to reunite her with her eldest son, despite tremendous odds. Helie’s mission became even more urgent when she realized that her first book, the bestselling novel Still Life with Rice, about the family’s escape, might have angered the North Korean government and put her uncle in danger.

17 An Extraordinary Absence - Jeff Foster
Auteur : Jeff Foster
Genre : Self-Improvement
Jeff Foster invites you to forget everything you know, everything you’ve been taught, and everything you’ve ever read about spiritual awakening, Oneness, enlightenment, non-duality, and Advaita, and to consider a new possibility: the possibility of absolute freedom, right now, right here, in the midst of this very ordinary life. Using everyday language and drawing on both personal experience and age-old wisdom, Foster shares the possibility that all the seeking and longing of the mind can come to an absolute end with the falling away of the sense of being a separate individual, and a plunge into unconditional love. And in that plunge—which is totally beyond anything you have ever imagined—this so-called ordinary life reveals its great Secret. Written with stunning clarity and aliveness, this book is a love letter to the exhausted spiritual seeker who is simply longing to come Hom

20 In Her Absence - Antonio Muñoz Molina
Auteur : Antonio Muñoz Molina
Genre : Literary
"[A] translucent novel of passion, illusion and social class....slyly witty and luminous."
—Francine Prose in O, The Oprah Magazine

During working hours, Mario is a dutiful bureaucrat, scrupulously earning his paycheck as an employee of the provincial Spanish town where he lives.

21 When God Isn't There - David Bowden
Auteur : David Bowden
Genre : Christianity
Why does God feel so far away? Why is my worship so empty? Has God left me?

David Bowden knows these questions firsthand, having wrestled for years with God’s apparent absence and studying what the Bible says about it. In this new book, Bowden tackles the subject head-on, finding the key to understanding it in the Bible’s depiction of a God who is infinitely far from us, free to move where he wants, but who chooses to come near in the person of Jesus.

A resource of encouragement for those who struggle with feeling God’s absence and a wake-up call to those who take God’s presence for granted, When God Isn’t There will forever change your understanding of why God sometimes seems to vanish and how he can be found again.

Praise for the work of David Bowden

24 Absence of Light - Zoë Sharp

25 Memories of Absence - Aomar Boum
Auteur : Aomar Boum
Genre : Africa
There is a Moroccan saying: A market without Jews is like bread without salt. Once a thriving community, by the late 1980s, 240,000 Jews had emigrated from Morocco. Today, fewer than 4,000 Jews remain. Despite a centuries-long presence, the Jewish narrative in Moroccan history has largely been suppressed through national historical amnesia, Jewish absence, and a growing dismay over the Palestinian conflict.

Memories of Absence investigates how four successive generations remember the lost Jewish community. Moroccan attitudes toward the Jewish population have changed over the decades, and a new debate has emerged at the center of the Moroccan nation: Where does the Jew fit in the context of an Arab and Islamic monarchy? Can Jews simultaneously be Moroccans and Zionists? Drawing on oral testimony and stories, on rumor and humor, Aomar Boum examines the strong shift in op

26 In the Presence of Absence - Mahmoud Darwish & Sinan Antoon
Auteur : Mahmoud Darwish & Sinan Antoon
Genre : Fiction & Literature
One of the most transcendent poets of his generation, Darwish composed this remarkable elegy at the apex of his creativity, but with the full knowledge that his death was imminent.

In stunning language, Darwish’s self-elegy inhabits a rare space where opposites bleed and blend into each other. Prose and poetry, life and death, home and exile are all sung by the poet and his other. On the threshold of im/mortality, the poet looks back at his own existence, intertwined with that of his people. Through these lyrical meditations on love, longing, Palestine, history, friendship, family, and the ongoing conversation between life and death, the poet bids himself and his readers a poignant farewell.

29 Monuments to Absence - Andrew Denson
Auteur : Andrew Denson
Genre : History
The 1830s forced removal of Cherokees from their southeastern homeland became the most famous event in the Indian history of the American South, an episode taken to exemplify a broader experience of injustice suffered by Native peoples. In this book, Andrew Denson explores the public memory of Cherokee removal through an examination of memorials, historic sites, and tourist attractions dating from the early twentieth century to the present. White southerners, Denson argues, embraced the Trail of Tears as a story of Indian disappearance. Commemorating Cherokee removal affirmed white possession of southern places, while granting them the moral satisfaction of acknowledging past wrongs. During segregation and the struggle over black civil rights, removal memorials reinforced whites' authority to define the South's past and present. Cherokees, however, proved capable of repossessing the rem

31 Beauty in Absence - Raven Farnell
Auteur : Raven Farnell
Genre : Poetry
Beauty in Absence is a tribute to those that taught me earlier on that “trust is hard to find and easy to lose.” To those that shape how I interpret and manipulate the world around me. To overcoming my insecurities and embracing my flaws. Over the course of the past four years, I have met a lot of people, been several places, and experienced certain situations that have challenged myself as a person. I have been selfish at times and selfless often. This part of my life has given me perspective into the lives of others. To always remember we don’t know what other people are dealing with in life. To make no assumptions. It also speaks to the moments in life that I personally have dealt with. Including prejudice, the world of working, and the issues family and friends have put onto me. It’s a tribute to those places that encourage growth. Most people have a place they call ho

32 Certificate of Absence - Sylvia Molloy & Daniel Balderston
Auteur : Sylvia Molloy & Daniel Balderston
Genre : Fiction & Literature
Originally published in 1981 as En breve cárcel, Certificate of Absence is the first novel of the Argentinian scholar-critic Sylvia Molloy. Innovative in its treatment of women's relationships and in its assertion of woman's right to author her own text, the novel has won wide approval in Latin America and the United States. The novel centers around a woman writing in a small room. As she writes, remembering a past relationship and anticipating a future one, the room becomes a repository for nostalgia, violence, and desire, a space in which writing and remembering become life-sustaining ceremonies. The narrator reflects on the power of love to both shelter and destroy. She meditates on the act of writing, specifically on writing as a woman, in a voice that goes against the grain of established, canonical voices. Latin American male writers are prone to self-portrayal in their texts. Cer

One of the most devastating losses a family can experience is the loss of a child. Whether the loss is through illness, accident, drugs, suicide, or other tragedy, the pain is overwhelming and often paralyzing. Often we think of "loss" as death. However, in our broken world there are many ways to suffer the loss of a child. This book discusses how a family can learn to cope with loss of a child due not only to death, but also to a custody battle, addiction (and other choices a child makes), chronic illness, crime (human trafficking, kidnap), and other issues where hopes and dreams disappear. Wright helps readers through the grieving process and assists them in finding God's grace and comfort during this very difficult time of life.

37 The Nudity of Absence (To the Idol Worshippers) - Adam Lovasz
Auteur : Adam Lovasz
Genre : Philosophy
Colorful in every sense of the word, The Nudity of Absence is, above all else, a work of speculative ontology. Drawing on scientific discoveries and metaphysical truths, the essays contained in this book attempt to delineate the contours of the current vacuity, emptiness and senseless negativity of the world we presently live in, while resisting the all too common imperative in most of philosophy that would force us to limit negation. Negativity is, by its very nature, limitless. The ambition of the author at this juncture, is to progressively debunk, so to speak, positive thinking through the exposition of an empirically-grounded negative ontology, a theory of being that contains nothing, for it limits itself to description of things as they are, of the very emptiness of all that is. The essays contained in this book, drawing on a variety of thinkers such as Jean Baudrillard, David Hume

With his mom on the verge of a breakdown, and his brother intent on following the dubious plans put forth by a nameless voice on the radio, Ben must hold out hope that

40 Pedagogies of Absence: Education Beyond an Ethos of Standardization (Issues in Education) (Essay) - Childhood Education
Auteur : Childhood Education
Genre : Education
Organizing curriculum and instruction in PK-12 public schools in relation to standardization practices presents us with the inherent paradox of limiting education to that which is already known and anticipated. Prescriptive standards, assessment-driven curricula, narrowly defined outcomes, and social efficiency-oriented scripted instruction only serve to shift teaching and learning away from the inexistent and "not yet" and toward preconceived knowledge (Dentith & Bronson, 2006; Pinar, 1998). Such strategies reveal a philosophical and intellectual (or, more accurately, anti-intellectual) worldview that imposes foundational pedagogical claims on a multiplicity of schools despite extensive social, cultural, economic, linguistic, personal and geographic differences that rupture assertions of a presumed universal norm. Paradigmatically linked to politico-economic and religious fundamenta

Viviamo anche attraverso i ricordi degli altri. Lo sa bene Faith, che a sedici anni deve affrontare l’ennesimo trasloco insieme alla madre, in dolce attesa della sorellina. Ecco un ricordo che la ragazza custodirà per sempre. Ma cosa accadrebbe se, da un giorno all’altro, quel ricordo non esistesse più? E cosa accadrebbe se fosse Faith a sparire dai ricordi della madre? La sua vita si trasforma in un incubo quando, all’improvviso, si rende conto di essere diventata invisibile. Nessuno riesce più a vederla, né si ricorda di lei. Non c’è spiegazione a quello che le è accaduto, solo totale smarrimento. Eppure Faith non è invisibile a tutti. Un uomo vestito di nero detta le regole di un gioco insidioso e apparentemente folle, dove l’unico indizio che conta è nascosto all’interno di un biglietto: 0°13′07″S 78°30′35″W, le coordinate per tornare a vedere.

Genre : Romance
Lacy has been fooling herself for years. She'd nearly convinced herself she's happy with just being Dan's friend, but as they've begun drifting apart she's realized she's losing more than just her best friend. **Author's Note: In the spirit of full disclosure, this is a short story-a tad under 1700 words. I think it's still an enjoyable read and worth the $.99, but I wouldn't want anyone to be surprised at its brevity. As a bonus, I've also included an excerpt from my upcoming novel, Torn.

Black men are increasingly underrepresented in medical schools and in the medical profession. A diverse workforce is a key attribute of quality healthcare and research suggests that a diverse workforce may help to advance cultural competency and increase access to high-quality health care, especially for underserved populations. Conversely, lack of diversity in the health workforce threatens health care quality and access and contributes to health disparities. In this way, the growing absence of Black men in medicine is especially troubling, because their absence in medicine may have adverse consequences for health care access, quality, and outcomes among Black Americans and Americans overall.
To better understand the factors that contribute to the low participation of Black men in the medical profession, facilitate discussion of current strategies used to increase their participat
