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 9 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
Nomadism and its frontiers by El Mokhtar Ghambou( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 9 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
Polyphonic screens: A study of Dostoevsky on film by Emma Patrizia Marciano( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 9 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
American Tropics: American imperial desire and Asian Pacific American postcoloniality by Allan Punzalan Isaac( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 9 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

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

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

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
