Combined and uneven development : towards a new theory of world-literature by Sharae Deckard( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 275 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ambition of this book is to resituate the problem of 'world literature', considered as a revived category of theoretical enquiry, by pursuing the literary-cultural implications of the theory of combined and uneven development. This theory has a long pedigree in the social sciences, where it continues to stimulate debate. But its implications for cultural analysis have received less attention, even though the theory might be said to draw attention to a central - perhaps the central - arc or trajectory of modern(ist) production in literature and the other arts worldwide. It is in the conjuncture of combined and uneven development, on the one hand, and the recently interrogated and expanded categories of 'world literature' and 'modernism', on the other, that this book looks for its specific contours. In the two theoretical chapters that frame the book, the authors argue for a single, but radically uneven world-system; a singular modernity, combined and uneven; and a literature that variously registers this combined unevenness in both its form and content to reveal itself as, properly speaking, world-literature. In the four substantive chapters that then follow, the authors explore a selection of modern-era fictions in which the potential of their method of comparativism seems to be most dramatically highlighted. They treat the novel paradigmatically, not exemplarily, as a literary form in which combined and uneven development is manifested with particular salience, due in no small part to its fundamental association with the rise of capitalism and its status in peripheral and semi-peripheral societies as a 'modernising' import. The peculiar plasticity and hybridity of the novel form enables it to incorporate not only multiple literary levels, genres and modes, but also other non-literary and archaic cultural forms - so that, for example, realist elements might be mixed with more experimental modes of narration, or older literary devices might be reactivated in juxtaposition with more contemporary frames

The productive body by François Guéry( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Productive Body asks how the human body and its labor have been expropriated and re-engineered through successive stages of capitalism; and how capitalism's transformation of the body is related to the rise of scientific psychology and social science disciplines complicit with modern regimes of control. In Discipline and Punish, Foucault cited Guéry and Deleule in order to link Marx's diagnosis of capitalism with his own critique of power/knowledge. The Productive Body brings together Marxism and theories of the body-machine for the goal of political revolution
Neoliberalism and contemporary American literature( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How has American literature responded to the dominance of neoliberalism? Does it make sense to speak of an "American" literature in neoliberal times? Can literature function as either a neutral category or a privileged narrative of national imagination in a time when paradigms of the nation-state and of liberal capitalism are undergoing a prolonged shift? In the United States, as elsewhere, the association between the nation-state, liberal capitalism, and literary form has a long history, reflecting determinate relations between writer and reader within imagined national community. As this community loses its symbolic efficiency in the age of neoliberal capital, the boundaries and possibilities of literary production and representation shift. This collection of essays examines how American literature both models and interrogates the neoliberal present. Has literary realism been exhausted as a narrative form? Can contemporary literature still imagine either the end of capitalism or an alternative to it?"--Back cover
Plotless history : historical representation in Frondeur memoirs by Stephen A Shapiro( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The results of this examination show that a vision of decline, stasis, stagnation, and decay predominates in all four of these memoirs. Motteville sees a world of vain appearances; La Rochefoucauld develops the incompatibility between romance's confidence in human agency and the course of events he recounts. Mademoiselle de Montpensier traces the decline of her noble "house," while Retz presents a rhetorical world where ever-shifting arguments triumph over truth. Far from being idealizing accounts that valorize their authors, as most critics have concluded, these memoirs in fact accurately reflect the triumph of the centralized monarchy, the eclipse of the aristocracy, the extinction of noble houses, and the death of chivalric values in post-Fronde France. Furthermore, these four memoirs demonstrate that particular and general history writing are false distinctions since the particular form of the memoir does indeed harbor a generalizing, argumentative discourse
