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 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

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

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

Nomadism and its frontiers by El Mokhtar Ghambou( )

1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
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
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

I continue to trace the negotiations with discursive convention that I examine in Chapter Two, attending not only to the differences of national identity but to the differences within it as well. In the final chapter, I return to the Victorian context in order to discuss the Autobiography of Harriet Martineau, arguing that for the political economist and historian, a discourse of domesticity enables her representation of an abstract subjectivity
