Human rights and narrated lives : the ethics of recognition by Kay Schaffer( Book )

22 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and Polish and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Personal narratives have become one of the most potent vehicles for advancing human rights claims across the world. Human Rights and Narrated Lives explores what happens when autobiographical narratives are produced, received, and circulated in the field of human rights. It asks how personal narratives emerge in local settings; how international rights discourse enables and constrains individual and collective subjectivities in narration; how personal narratives circulate and take on new meanings in new contexts; and how and under what conditions they feed into, affect, and are affected by the reorganization of politics in post-cold war, postcolonial, globalizing human rights contexts
Women and the bush : forces of desire in the Australian cultural tradition by Kay Schaffer( Book )

25 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 487 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Images of Australian identity, and of Australian nationhood, are social and cultural constructs. There are several dominant themes and elements, one of the most pervasive being the Australian bushman confronting a vast and barren landscape. This is a specifically Australian conception of the battle between Man and Nature. Throughout the myths, traditions and literary creations of Australia are underlying assumptions about gender and sexual difference: assumptions about masculinity and femininity within the nationalist tradition, which affect perceptions today. In this new critique, Kay Schaffer applies the insights of feminist scholarship and of literary analysis to examine the national character. She looks at how the concept of 'the typical Australian', and the woman who stands in relation to him, has evolved across a range of cultural forms, including historical and literary texts, film and the media. She concentrates in particular on the writings of Henry Lawson and of Barbara Bayton. The circulation of ideas about these writers, their contribution to a national mythology, and the different ways their importance has been represented to modern readers, is explored and discussed. This thoughtful and provocative study will interest readers concerned with Australian literary and cultural history, as well as the broader questions of Australia's changing self-image. It will be of particular value to those interested in feminist approaches to culture and society
In the wake of first contact : the Eliza Fraser stories by Kay Schaffer( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 311 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book investigates representations of masculinity and femininity, self and other. It examines the organisation of racial, class, gendered and national identities evident in the various retellings of the Eliza Fraser story, and interprets them critically. Drawing on recent post-colonial, feminist, and post-structuralist theories, as well as the ethnographic data, it discusses the role of these stories and images in regulating power relations of empire, colony and nation
Indigenous Australian voices : a reader( Book )

4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Indigenous Australian Voices presents artwork, prose, and poetry of thirty-six contemporary Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writers and artists from the offshore islands, the Northern Territory, and all six states of Australia. It brings together, for the first time, little-known writings by men and women who capture the diversity of their lifestyles and perspectives in a far more compelling way than better-known accounts of anthropologists and travellers."--BOOK JACKET
Women writers in postsocialist China by Kay Schaffer( Book )

11 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does it mean to read from elsewhere? Women Writers in Postsocialist China introduces readers to a range and variety of contemporary Chinese women's writing, which has seen phenomenal growth in recent years. The book addresses the different ways women's issues are understood in China and the West, attending to the processes of translation, adaptation, and the grafting of new ideas with existing Chinese understandings of gender, feminism, subjectivity, consumerism and (post) modernism. By focusing on women's autobiographical, biographical, fictional and historical writing, the boo

Race & sex eine Geschichte der Neuzeit : 49 Schlüsseltexte aus vier Jahrhunderten neu gelesen( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in German and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die Geschichte der Neuzeit ist eine Geschichte des Rassismus. Dies zeigt sich von den ersten Entdeckungsreisen über fünf Jahrhunderte des Kolonialismus bis in unsere globalisierte Gegenwart; von Jahrhunderten der Sklaverei über Systeme der Apartheid bis hin zu globalen Arbeitsordnungen; von den ersten Eroberungskriegen bis zu den Genoziden der Moderne: Alle diese historischen Bewegungen korrespondieren mit Grenzziehungen, mit Einteilungen von Menschen in Gruppen und Kategorien. Ihre Wirkmächtigkeit erhalten Rassismen und Rassenkonzepte insbesondere auch durch ihre enge Bindung an den Sex: An Vorstellungen spezifischer sexueller Wesenhaftigkeiten verschiedener Menschen und ihrer sexuellen Praktiken, an das vielfältige Sprechen über den Sex in der Moderne sowie an Konzepte der Vererbung besagter Wesenhaftigkeiten. 'Rasse' konnte in der Geschichte der Neuzeit erst durch ihre Bindung an Sex und Sex erst durch seine Bindung an 'Rasse' eine solche Wirkmacht entfalten. Westliche, neuzeitliche Gesellschaften sind getrieben von der Obsession zu vergleichen und zu unterscheiden, zu differenzieren und zu hierarchisieren. Ein Denken, das die grenzziehende Wucht von "race & sex" in der Geschichte ebenso wie die endlosen Grenzüberschreitungen und Verschiebungen in den Blick nimmt, trägt dazu bei, Grenzen jeglicher Art ihrer Evidenz zu berauben und deren Historizität aufzuzeigen. Dieses Denken wird so selbst eine Praxis der Grenzüberschreitung und -auflösung. Zu diesem Zweck wurden für dieses Buch 50 internationale Expertinnen und Experten aus den Geschichts-, Kultur- und Sozialwissenschaften eingeladen, jeweils einen historischen Schlüsseltext zu "race & sex" einer Re-Lektüre zu unterziehen. Diese Texte reichen von Erzählungen über Begegnungen mit amerikanischen Indigenen aus dem 17. Jahrhundert über deutsche Kolonialzeitschriften des 19. und 20. Jahrhunderts bis zu Texten der jüngsten Vergangenheit und Gegenwart. Sie werden vor dem Hintergrund der gegenwärtigen geschichts-, kultur- und sozialwissenschaftlichen Debatten in kurzen, pointierten, kritischen Essays daraufhin befragt, wie sie sich in die Geschichte von "race & sex" eingeschrieben haben und wie ihre Bedeutung heute zu verstehen ist

The place of woman in the Australian tradition : an analysis of the discourse by Kay Schaffer( Book )

9 editions published between 1984 and 1987 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study examines the cultural and ideological evolution of ideas about the Australian character and the signification of "woman". Texts analyzed include: narratives of exploration and settlement which personify the bush as a feminine force to be mastered and subdued; cultural commentaries on Austrialia, including Hancock's history and divergent perspectives of the Democratic Nationalists, the New Critics and the New Left; marginalized texts by women writers which defy imperatives of sexual, political and economic dominance over the land; the works of Henry Lawson and their use by critics for whom "Lawson" is a touchstone for understanding the national character; and the stories of Barbara Baynton and their critical reception which mark her as a dissident writer whose texts challenge the authority of the tradition. The methods of analysis are derived from post-structural and French feminist approaches to textuality/sexuality
