Experiments in a jazz aesthetic : art, activism, academia, and the Austin Project by Omi Osun Joni L Jones( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2021 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Austin, Texas, in 2002, a group of artists, activists, and academics led by performance studies scholar Omi Osun Joni L. Jones formed the Austin Project (tAP), which meets annually in order to provide a space for women of color and their allies to build relationships based on trust, creativity, and commitment to social justice by working together to write and perform work in the jazz aesthetic. Inspired by this experience, this book is both an anthology of new writing and a sourcebook for those who would like to use creative writing and performance to energize their artistic, scholarly, and activist practices. Theoretical and historical essays by Omi Osun Joni L. Jones describe and define the African American tradition of art-making known as the jazz aesthetic, and explain how her own work in this tradition inspired her to start tAP. Key artists in the tradition, from Bessie Award-winning choreographer Laurie Carlos and writer/performer Robbie McCauley to playwrights Daniel Alexander Jones and Carl Hancock Rux, worked with the women of tAP as mentors and teachers. This book brings together never-before-published, must-read materials by these nationally known artists and the transformative writing of tAP participants. A handbook for workshop leaders by Lambda Literary Award-winning writer Sharon Bridgforth, tAP's inaugural anchor artist, offers readers the tools for starting similar projects in their own communities. A full-length script of the 2005 tAP performance is an original documentation of the collaborative, breath-based, body work of the jazz aesthetic in theatre, and provides both a script for use by theatre artists and an invaluable documentation of a major transformative movement in contemporary performance
Dangerous intimacies : toward a sapphic history of the British novel by Lisa L Moore( Book )

5 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Refuting commonly held beliefs within women's and lesbian history, feminist theory, and histories of the novel, Dangerous Intimacies challenges the idea that sex between women was unimaginable in British culture before the late nineteenth century. Lisa L. Moore argues that literary representations of female sexual agency--and in particular "sapphic" relationships between women--were central to eighteenth-century debates over English national identity. Moore shows how the novel's representation of women's "romantic friendships"--Both platonic and sexual--were encoded within wider social concerns regarding race, nation, and colonialist ventures. Moore demonstrates that intimacy between women was vividly imagined in the British eighteenth century as not only chaste and virtuous, but also insistently and inevitably sexual. She looks at instances of sapphism in such novels as Millenium Hall, Memoirs of a Woman of Pleasure, Belinda, and Emma and analyzes how the new literary form of the novel made the bourgeois heroine's successful negotiation of female friendship central to the establishment of her virtue. Moore also examines representations of sapphism through the sweeping economic and political changes of the period and claims that middle-class readers' identifications with the heroine's virtue helped the novel's bourgeois audience justify the violent bases of their new prosperity, including slavery, colonialism, and bloody national rivalry. In revealing the struggle over sapphism at the heart of these novels of female friendship--and at the heart of England's national identity--Moore shows how feminine sexual agency emerged as an important cultural force in post-Enlightenment England"--Publisher's description
Sister arts : the erotics of lesbian landscapes by Lisa L Moore( Book )

9 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 296 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the great age of English garden design, eighteenth-century women working in the "sister arts" of painting, poetry, and landscape gardening adapted the Linnaean system of plant classification and the tradition of the erotic garden to create art with and for other women that celebrated everything from classical friendship to erotic love. In this book Moore reveals how these women artists used flowers, gardens, and landscapes to express their love for other women. Aristocratic diarist Mary Delany built a garden grotto for the exclusive use of herself and the naturalist and collector Margaret Bentinck, Duchess of Portland. Romantic poet Anna Seward, mourning the loss of Honora Sneyd to an unworthy marriage and then death, wrote her beloved's face and body into her landscape poems. And in 1790s Connecticut, feminist intellectual Sarah Pierce transformed texts and images into a new poetic evocation of intimacy between women both egalitarian and erotic. These women, Moore shows, influenced later works by Emily Dickinson, Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, and Tee Corinne. Moore goes on to trace the legacy of the lesbian sister arts tradition in subsequent art and poetry, including contemporary multimedia work by Kara Walker, Michelene Thomas, Alma Lopez, and Allyson Mitchell. Her book redefines this unstudied sister arts tradition, which becomes visible only when we understand how the works of these women exemplify what she deems "lesbian genres."

Long Before Stonewall : Histories of Same-Sex Sexuality in Early America( )

1 edition published in 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

2007 Choice Outstanding Academic TitleAlthough the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York City symbolically mark the start of the gay rights movement, individuals came together long before the modern era to express their same-sex romantic and sexual attraction toward one another, and in a myriad of ways. Some reflected on their desires in quiet solitude, while others endured verbal, physical, and legal harassment for publicly expressing homosexual interest through words or actions.Long Before Stonewall seeks to uncover the many iterations of same-sex desire in colonial America and the early Republic, as well as to expand the scope of how we define and recognize homosocial behavior. Thomas A. Foster has assembled a pathbreaking, interdisciplinary collection of original and classic essays that explore topics ranging from homoerotic imagery of black men to prison reform to the development of sexual orientations. This collection spans a regional and temporal breadth that stretches from the colonial Southwest to Quaker communities in New England. It also includes a challenge to commonly accepted understandings of the Native American berdache. Throughout, connections of race, class, status, and gender are emphasized, exposing the deep foundations on which modern sexual political movements and identities are built

Sound off! : recording voice and the racial politics of American experimental poetry by Jeffrey Kyle Boruszak( )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The racial politics of the avant-garde is one of the dominant and most urgent issues in twenty-first century American poetry. Non-white poets often find themselves excluded from contemporary avant-garde circles, historical narratives of avant-garde practices frequently occlude their contributions, and avant-garde poets rarely include anti-racist rhetoric and principles in their poems. In recent years, the anti-lyric critiques posed by the avant-garde Language poets in the 1980s and 1990s drew increased attention for their role in racially segregating experimental and formally innovative writers. Poetic voice, the rejection of which is a cardinal principle of anti-lyric, became a central figure in these discussions. Yet given that voice can refer to the phenomenal act of speaking as well as serve as a common figure for an individual poet’s style and tone, the nature of the links between voice and race in poetry remain unclear. This dissertation therefore incorporates current trends in the scholarly field of sound studies by attending to postwar American poets who use technology for sound recording and reproduction in their work in order to isolate voice as an object of intense scrutiny. By analyzing the Vietnam-era “auto poesy” of Allen Ginsberg, the dystopian specter colonialism in poems by Cathy Park Hong, and the typographical experiments of Douglas Kearney, this project engages both analog and digital recording technologies and their applications as compositional processes, structural metaphors, and aesthetic influences. Rather than focus on how voice is produced in the acts of speaking and writing, I engage the cultural norms that code sounds and inform human listening practices in order to argue that voice is dynamic, fluid, and contextual. Given their significant overlap in political commitments, acknowledging the whiteness of the avant-garde suggests the possibility of creating a broader and more inclusive coalition of experimental poets whose combined efforts can bring about desirable shifts in political, pedagogical, and publishing norms

Imagined intimacy : friendship, conquest, and futurity in the transatlantic eighteenth century by Carolyn Marjorie Davis( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation considers some ways that friendship was imagined in the fledgling years of our globalized Western culture. The pathos of friendship is not exempt from the pressures of culture and economy, particularly those of transatlantic capitalism in the eighteenth century. It is impossible to pinpoint when capitalism began to undermine the ethos of expressive friendship, but the three texts in this dissertation offer distinctive modes for accessing neoclassical language to describe the uncertainties of life produced by one's valuation as capital. The overarching intention of this study is to consider the dimensional intimacies of friendship born from the forcible removal of one's humanity. While the first two chapters consider the white individual's responsibility for globalized and colonized friendships, the third offers a view of intimate black futurity rebuilt on the ashes of our history. Chapter One uses Tobias Smollett's novel The Adventures of Roderick Random (1748) to disambiguate friendship as a contractual obligation born of interest. The titular character engages a series of friends in his search for wealth and love throughout this picaresque novel; his experiences highlight "friendship" as an ambiguous term easily (re)defined. Chapter Two examines the friendship of white womanhood in Susanna Rowson's Reuben and Rachel: A Tale of Old Times (1798) to question the benevolent assumptions undergirding the sensibility studies of the Early American republic. The third and final chapter considers black friendship and futurity, as distilled by the transatlantic diaspora, by mapping the spiritual neighborhood one joins when reading Phillis Wheatley's poetry while black. I explore Wheatley's friendship with Obour Tanner; her potential friendship with Scipio Moorhead; the imagined community her words engendered in Ignatius Sancho and Jupiter Hammon; and the twenty-first century black femmes who find futurity in Phillis Wheatley. My short Coda will explore some of the ways that queer black friendship embodies a particular vulnerability, which our failing capitalist society refuses to confront as it builds narratives of security on white supremacist notions of sustainability
