Nomadism and its frontiers by El Mokhtar Ghambou( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

I bring the linguistically and culturally loaded signs of "nomad" and "frontier" into dialectical play to expose both the expansionist privileges and the conceptual limitations underlying the anthropological, historical, literary, and theoretical representations of nomadism, from Greek antiquity to the present. Challenging recent poststructuralist and postcolonial notion of "nomad thought", I argue that the alleged counter-discourse of "nomadology" is fundamentally based on positivist concepts disguised as anti-foundationalist ones. My study is revisionist as it attempts to shift the discourses of postcoloniality, cultural studies, and feminist theory, especially as these discourses have unwittingly embraced nomadism without a recognition of its historical, aesthetic, or political implications
American tropics : American imperial desire and Asian Pacific American postcoloniality by Allan Punzalan Isaac( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The dissertation explores how American national identity has been shaped by the American vision of and activity among Asian Pacific custodial populations at home and abroad. By extending its borders to incorporate tropical lands and peoples, like the Philippines and Filipinos, the U.S. nation-state created an "American Tropics" as part of its national identity. While providing an imaginary space of fantasy, this tropical identity also required containment and discipline, which shaped the American cultural and political representation of Asian Pacific and Asian Pacific Americans. Drawing on the theoretical insights of such literary critics and cultural historians as Homi Bhabha, Lisa Lowe, Frantz Fanon, Edward Said, and William Appleman Williams, this work of cultural criticism interrogates the role of imperialism in the consolidation and expansion of United States national identity through readings of American legal, literary and cinematic texts

Human half-breeds : women, sex and colonial crossings by Robin Truth Goodman( )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation explores possible points of dialogue between current feminist debates, queer studies and postcolonial theoretical concerns by discussing the figuration of female sexuality as a border principle in colonial regulations of identities. It works on the discourses of hybridity arising from, predominantly, three different historical contexts: the postcolonial theoretical debates, the social and scientific understanding of racial/special crossings in late nineteenth century Europe, and their applications within narratives of identity in late twentieth century Latin America. It then asks how marriage, and women's roles in reproduction, are formulated around the question of racial relations and their epistemologies, and how colonial and postcolonial racial identities are figured through articulations of feminities
Spirit possession on the age of materialism by Elizabeth Mayes( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This dissertation provides a genealogy of spirit possession in the modern era. Spirit possession, long practiced in the pre-modern West, usually manifest as diabolic possession, became philosophically and practically untenable in the early modern era due to the emergence of a self-possessing individualized subject--situated in, and formally homologous to, a private property system--which converted motivating spirit powers, formerly conceptualized as external, into internally originating forces. The site of bodily agency attributed to possessing spirits was inducted, under the influence of a materialist de-spiritualizing scientific rationalist paradigm, into an atomized money economy where it was recategorized as the power of capital. This circulating energy locus infiltrated the commodity itself, creating the illusion of motivating power in an inanimate object which confounded the subject/object dichotomy and was termed 'commodity fetishism.' Bodily activity appropriated into the field of economic productivity came to be conceived of as willed, either by the subject or through coercion, rather than inspired. The phenomenon of possession trance continued to manifest, however, in disguised and increasingly pathologized forms, such as mesmerism, hypnotism, hysteria, and, recently, multiple personality disorder, wherein possessing personalities are figured as alien entities operative within the terrain of the self. This cultural historical process of subjective internalization and objective de-animation has contributed to an increasing psychic isolation of the subject, ironically accompanied by a growing mystification, entrancing complexification, and seeming empowerment of objectified matter

The pure products of America go crazy : the language of schizophrenia in the United States during the early Cold War by Richard Ledes( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This investigation reveals the pervasiveness of clinical and non-clinical understandings of schizophrenia in American literature, culture and politics of the early Cold War. M.M. Bakhtin elaborates the way in which novels are constructed out of a diversity of "languages," calling this process "heteroglossia." The language of schizophrenia, in this Bakhtinian sense, emerged in the Cold War period. Many of these works portrayed splitting or fragmentation as latent dangers that justified extraordinary psychical, cultural and political efforts at maintaining unity. These efforts included the assimilation of psychoanalysis into the dominant moral discourse of American medicine and science, as well as the use of mental health as a national goal or weapon in the fight against communism. This effort at monopolization of psychoanalysis by American medicine is analyzed from a Lacanian perspective. The dissertation demonstrates the importance of the language of schizophrenia as a locus in early Cold War America for recasting and reinterpreting the culture's search for paranoid unity and an accompanying fear of splitting and fragmentation

Cultural capital : the problem of literary canon formation by John Guillory( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The final chapter of Cultural Capital examines recent theories of value judgment, which have strongly reaffirmed cultural relativism as the necessary implication of canon critique. Contrasting the relativist position with Pierre Bourdieu's very different sociology of judgment, Guillory concludes that the object of a revisionary critique of aesthetic evaluation should not be to discredit judgment, but to reform the conditions of its practice in the schools by universalizing access to the means of literary production and consumption
