Why I wrote Educational Strategies for Youth Empowerment in Conflict Zones

Nyla Ali Khan

Languages: English

DOI: 10.17160/josha.9.3.828

This essay is an excerpt from my book Educational Strategies for Youth Empowerment in Conflict Zones: Transforming, Not Transmitting, Trauma, which offers fresh and exciting new directions of inquiry into the highly contentious issue of conflict resolution in South Asia. By shifting its gaze from a politics of division mired in ethno-nationalisms into a healing and restorative focus, the author moves the dialogue forward into the realm of community, healing, and shared governance. The book analyzes the major constitutional and political missteps that have led to the current situation of violence and distrust in countries such as India and Pakistan, keeping the focus on Jammu and Kashmir. This monograph will appeal to a wide range of audiences including academics, researchers, graduate students interested in South Asian politics, development, trauma studies, and peace and conflict studies.

A Saga of Exclusionary Practices: Systemic Hindrances in Obtaining a Certificate of Legal Practice in India

Gatha Namboothiri, Tanvi Singh , Nivedita Dalal

Languages: English

DOI: 10.17160/josha.9.3.826

In India, to practice law, a law graduate needs to clear the All India Bar Examination conducted by the Bar Council of India. The popular narrative about the exam is that it is straightforward and easy to clear, however, it the system is deeply unequal and narratives around its difficulty are imbedded with intersectional privilege. There are multiple challenges that candidates face right from the enrollment stage to the exam stage. Systematic issues such as an exorbitant enrollment cost, cumbersome registration processes, quality of question papers in vernacular languages and an ineffective grievance redressal mechanism. The article series argues that the entry point of the legal profession in its present form is deeply exclusionary. In our three-part article series, based on our interactions with hundreds of law graduates about their lived experiences of the examination process, we attempt to capture and bring forth these structural inequities into public discourse.

The First Century of Ulysses

Robert M. Kaplan

Languages: English

DOI: 10.17160/josha.9.3.819

The publication of James Joyce’s Ulysses on 2nd February 1922 was a seminal event in literature and modernism. Determined to write the defining novel of the new century, Joyce spent seven years writing a masterwork of realism and symbolism, written in a way that no one has ever managed to replicate. Joyce famously declared that if Dublin was ever destroyed it could be reconstructed from the pages of his great novel Ulysses. The Dictionary of Irish Biography tells us that Joyce gave “infinitely subtle attention to the subjectivity of an insignificant Dubliner called Bloom” and by doing so “created one of the greatest figures of twentieth-century fiction, and the novel has been permanently altered by what he did.”

You Are the Object of a Secret Extraction Operation

Shoshana Zuboff

Languages: English

DOI: 10.17160/josha.9.2.810

As we move into the third decade of the 21st century, surveillance capitalism is the dominant economic institution of our time. Dr. Shoshana Zuboff, professor emeritus at Harvard Business School and the author of The Age of Surveillance Capitalism -says “Facebook is not just any corporation. It reached trillion-dollar status in a single decade by applying the logic of what I call surveillance capitalism — an economic system built on the secret extraction and manipulation of human data — to its vision of connecting the entire world. No secret extraction means no illegitimate concentrations of knowledge about people. No concentrations of knowledge means no targeting algorithms. No targeting means that corporations can no longer control and curate information flows and social speech or shape human behavior to favor their interests. Regulating extraction would eliminate the surveillance dividend and with it the financial incentives for surveillance.

Languages: English

DOI: 10.17160/josha.9.1.807

Dear josha-journal readers, While we were still thinking mainly about Corona when we wrote the last editorial and wished our readers a happy new year 2022, we are thrown back on the hard ground of facts only two months later. There is a war going on in Europe, an unimaginable event for all of us! Especially the Josha team, which since its foundation has always been committed to international friendship and cooperation across all territorial borders, is horrified. Our contributor Silke therefore dedicates an article to the attacked country of Ukraine with its anthem and the context of its creation. We will not be stopped in our quest to make science and art accessible to all and wish all readers a successful read despite the dramatic events.
