Nomadism and its frontiers by El Mokhtar Ghambou( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 7 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
American Tropics: American imperial desire and Asian Pacific American postcoloniality by Allan Punzalan Isaac( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 7 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

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 Cultural Capital, John Guillory challenges the most fundamental premises of the canon debate by resituating the problem of canon formation in an entirely new theoretical framework. The result is a book that promises to recast not only the debate about the literary curriculum but also the controversy over "multiculturalism" and the current "crisis of the humanities."

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 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
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
