Subsequently, the phrase "critical regionalism" has also been used in cultural studies, literary studies, and political theory, specifically in the work of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak . In her 2007 work "Who Sings the Nation-State?", co-authored with Judith Butler , Spivak proposes a deconstructive alternative to nationalism that is predicated on the deconstruction of borders and rigid national identity.  Douglas Reichert Powell's book Critical Regionalism: Connecting Politics and Culture in the American Landscape (2007) traces the trajectory of the term critical regionalism from its original use in architectural theory to its inclusion in literary, cultural, and political studies and proposes a methodology based on the intersection of those fields.
Science is making rapid strides in its understanding of the structure and function of the brain. Imaging technologies offer vivid visuals of how we respond to joy, novelty, trauma, and loneliness. Maps of signaling pathways show us how the brain develops and ages, and how acts of imagination, art, and love foster a healthier mind. By explaining human behavior at the neural level, new research is revealing the connection between mental and physical health, offering insights about resilience, and helping unlock human capacity. The science of the brain and the wonders of the mind give new meaning to the word “awesome.”
