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 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation argues for a "sense of place" as a crucial category of belonging and writing in the literatures of migration and displacement, to which the geographical imagination is central. In the writing of migration, I argue, the traditional formulation as place as settlement and rootedness is subverted, and instead a dynamic, mobile sense of place is asserted. The links between location, ethnicity, gender and literary genre are highlighted in this project to show how nationality and ethnic identity are formed in struggles over places even in the context of migration. In examining certain writers who at certain moments have reconfigured prevailing definitions of space, I show how the (im)possibilities of ethnic and national belonging and identity can be articulated at least partly through a writing of space. Many of the works I consider are concerned with immigrants, travelers, and refugees
American tropics : American imperial desire and Asian Pacific American postcoloniality by Allan Punzalan Isaac( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 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 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Filmmakers of all nations have engaged in an active dialogue with Dostoevsky's stories: from Hollywood to Hokkaido, from Cinecitta to Paris, Dostoevsky's plots have been recast in a myriad of different spatio-temporal settings while his characters have undergone a variety of historical and personal mutations. While I propose that the highly differentiated approaches filmmakers have adopted to translate Dostoevsky to the screen extend the multivocality that Bakhtin discerned in this author's work, I also suggest that Dostoevsky's "dialogical" practices foreground aspects of narration that bring into question crucial aspects of cinema. Dostoevsky's impatience with linearity and plot, his vocation for circuitous monologues, and his use of time--not as a quantifiable progression but as a qualitatively meaningful experience--all coalesce into a vision of reality which defies traditional literary conventions. Concentrating on the use of spatio-temporal coordinates, on the issues posed by first-person narratives, and on the characterization of women and her voice, this study analyzes five different works by Dostoevsky as brought to the screen by five different filmmakers: Akira Kurosawa, Luchino Visconti, Robert Siodmak, Gary Walkow, and Robert Bresson
Nomadism and its frontiers by El Mokhtar Ghambou( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries 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
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
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

Guillory argues that canon formation must be understood less as a question of representing social groups in the canon than of distributing "cultural capital" in the schools, which regulate access to literacy, the practices of reading and writing. He declines to reduce the history of canon formation to one of individual reputations or the ideological contents of particular works, arguing that a critique of the canon fixated on the concept of authorial identity overlooks historical transformations in the forms of cultural capital that have underwritten judgments of individual authors. The most important of these transformations is the emergence of "literature" in the later eighteenth century as the name of the cultural capital of the bourgeoisie

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
