Public relations : women writers and autobiographical practice in nineteenth-century England and France by Sara E Murphy ( )
1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Using a case study method and a theoretical framework which derives from psychoanalysis, materialist feminism, and Foucault, the dissertation traces the production of abstraction, frequently coded in nineteenth-century culture as depth, in five texts written in mid-century by women authors. In the first chapter, I argue that the genre of autobiography is shaped and defined by legacies of discursive conventions which vary according to national tradition. In the second chapter, I discuss a critical transition for English women's autobiographical writing: that from spiritual autobiography to a more explicitly literary form. Reading Charlotte Tonna's Personal Recollections and Charlotte Bronte's Jane Eyre together, I argue that the novel can be conceived of as a complex discourse of self-representation in the absence of spiritual models of autobiography. Tn the following chapters, I examine George Sand's Histoire de Ma Vie and the Souvenirs and Memoirs of the historian Daniel Stern
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
Aching for beauty : footbinding as cultural fetish and discourse of body and language by Ping Wang ( )
1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
My study employs poetry, novels, plays, essays, and oral accounts by male and female writers from the 14th century to the present to discuss the issues of footbinding in the context of history, literature, semiotics and psychoanalysis. I introduce western linguistic, literary, and psychoanalytic theories in order to examine footbinding from cross-cultural and inter-disciplinary perspectives. Through pain and violence. women entered the codes of beauty and eroticism. Meanwhile, they turned the binding--the symbol of female oppression--into a theater of masquerade and language, where hierarchy and gender roles were dismantled and reconstructed, where women created their own culture. By understanding why Chinese women mutilated themselves across a millennium, I hope to offer some insight on why women in other cultures "voluntarily" suffer for beauty

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 1 WorldCat member library 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
The pure products of America go crazy : The language of schizophrenia in the United States during the early Cold War by Richard Chapman 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
Spirit possession in 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
Nomadism and its frontiers by El Mokhtar Ghambou ( )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
My dissertation is a comparative and interdisciplinary study of nomadism in modern literature, anthropology, and critical theory. Reading texts by Euro-American writers such as E. Evans-Pritchard, P. Bowles, S. Bellow, G. Deleuze, and F. Guattari, I discuss nomadism as an economic mode of production, an exoticist system of representation, an archetype of mobility and exile, and a problematic critical concept-all of which are constitutive features of what I call the nomadist discourse. I argue that nomadism is a frontier construct marked by self-subversive paradoxes and contradictions. I use the keyword "frontier" ironically to designate, at once, a peripheral territory accessible to the nomadist's adventure, and a circumscribed boundary or border within which "authentic" nomads, such as the Tuaregs of the Sahara and the bedouins of Arabia, are immobilized and exoticized
Whiteout : myth, identity and racial erasure in Cuba and the Dominican Republic (1844-2000) by Marianella Belliard ( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
When examined together, Cuba and the Dominican Republic bring to light some dilemmas and significant gray areas of postcoloniality. Despite their similarity as Hispanophone Caribbean nations with a profoundly African population, these nations' different approach to the relationship between the center and periphery contrast different postcolonial forms. Cuba and the Dominican Republic accomplish the feat national unity in very distinct ways. Since the nineteenth century, the Dominican Republic has exhibited a pro-colonial tendency, romanticizing and identifying with Spanish colonial rule, in order to erase the historical fact of Haitian occupation and African ancestry. Cuba, on the other hand, has taken a strong anti-colonial stance since the 1880s, defying Spain and celebrating its Caribbean roots
All regions do smilingly revolt : region, place, literature by Roberto M Dainotto ( Book )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Starting from the observation that regionalism is a political category before being a literary one, this dissertation questions the widespread assumption that a decentralization of aesthetic and literary values would coincide with the liberation of marginalized cultures and peoples alike from oppressive and totalitarian centers. As decentralization thus becomes a rhetorical appeal to "liberation," the region develops into a trope of this emancipating argument--the figure of what rhetoricians call "a commonplace." The works discussed include the Victorian novels of Thomas Hardy and Elizabeth Gaskell, D.H. Lawrence's translations of Giovanni Verga, and the aesthetics of place and region according to Giovanni Gentile, Benedetto Croce, Martin Heidegger, and T.S. Eliot. Rather than following a strictly chronological history of regionalism, the region is analyzed here as a place of argumentative oppositions: North versus South, Center versus Periphery, Reality versus Utopia, Universe versus Province. If the starting observation concerns politics, the conclusions of this dissertation, relative to the topology of regionalism, are strictly literary. Their real objective is not to recover the political unconscious of our literature, but to unveil the literary and rhetorical unconscious of our politics
American tropics : American imperial desire and Asian Pacific American postcoloniality by Allan Punzalan Isaac ( )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
