The local and the mobile : spaces of belonging and displacement in American narratives by Dalia Kandiyoti( )

1 edition published in 1999 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

They offer "hidden histories" of place, occluded otherwise by dominant spatial and other ideologies. They also create and show the ways in which ethnicity and nationality are spatial practices. My examples are drawn from North American and Argentine cultures, including Chicana/o literatures, and Jewish American and Jewish Argentine "foundational fictions." In the first chapter, I draw on the theoretical insights of literary critics, historians, and geographers such as Edward Said, Stuart Hall, James Clifford, and Doreen Massey to argue for the geographical articulations of ethnic-identity-in-displacement. I then analyze works by Abraham Cahan and Alberto Gerchunoff to show how they reinvent dominant discourses of territory and local color to represent immigrant Jewish identity in the Americas. In Willa Cather's "prairie" novels about European immigrants, I read a reformulation of political and cultural pluralism based on space
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 multiple identificatory sites forged out of migration and neo-imperialism, which characterize Asian Pacific American citizenry in the late twentieth century, rewrite facile narratives of immigration and assimilation. Across the insular chain of the American Tropics, or territories, the imperial encounter has forced colonizer and colonized to negotiate legal, cultural and psychic borders to define what is proper to "America." As a reading and cultural practice, the American Tropics not only signal the presence of invisible landscapes but also obfuscated narratives residing outside the United States epistemological and geopolitical borders. Readings of early 20th century popular literature, post-World War II era films such as Real Glory, South Pacific and Blue Hawaii, and the response of Asian American writers including Carlos Bulosan and Jessica Hagedorn reveal American imperialism's cultural compass and the occlusions of America's narrative of itself. Underscoring the irony and the shifting boundaries of American and various island-nationalist narratives, the American Tropics turn America upon itself to reconstitute "America." The American Tropics, as a set of cultural and critical practices emerging from inside and outside U.S. borders, highlight the layered referents and ever-shifting boundaries of "America" and its colonial others
Polyphonic screens: A study of Dostoevsky on film by Emma Patrizia Marciano( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study constitutes the first unified attempt to explore the legacy of Dostoevsky in world cinema. By studying the diverse ways in which this author has been adapted for the screen, my aim is both that of widening the spectrum of critical analysis applied to him, and to help renegotiate the terms of the film versus literature debate
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

Spirit possession on the age of materialism by Elizabeth Ann 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

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

In three case studies, Guillory charts the rise and decline of the category of "literature" as the organizing principle of canon formation in the modern period. He considers the institutionalization of the English vernacular canon in eighteenth-century primary schools; the polemic on behalf of a New Critical modernist canon in the university; and the appearance of a "canon of theory" supplementing the literary curriculum in the graduate schools and marking the onset of a terminal crisis of literature as the dominant form of cultural capital in the schools
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

Investigating textual moments where evolutionary theory's notions of infertility would define borders between species and races, this dissertation approaches, from a number of different disciplinary perspectives, histories where hybridity both underwrites and destabilizes inscriptions of heterosexualities. My first chapter sets up the relationship between colonialism and sexualities by discussing evolutionary theory's influence on Freud's analyses of sexual difference in women. In my second chapter, I explore the ways in which racial mixing on the colonies, as treated in Conrad's earliest novels Almayer's Folly and An Outcast of the Islands, marks his later representation of the "New Woman" in Chance. I then move into Latin American settings where gender becomes a salient factor in the construction of national identities, first in relation to Carpentier's framing of "American" literary difference within a scientific discourse on hybridity, and then in relation to Vargas Llosa's philosophy of eroticism as the line conjoining civilization and barbarism. My last chapter treats the Palinho Paiakan rape case in Brazil, where debates over the constitutional definitions of ethnic identity, environmentalism, and an anthropology of indigenous media production all played a substantial role in locating race and gender within legislative agendas. Linking the literary analysis to cultural and global events, I look at these works as sharing in the constructions of historical discourses and contemporary debates over ethnic representation, racial identities and the politics of reproduction
