Authenticity guaranteed : masculinity and the rhetoric of anti-consumerism in American culture by Sally Robinson( )

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 249 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans love to hate consumerism. Scholars, intellectuals, musicians, and writers of all kinds take pleasure in complaining that consumer culture endangers the "real" things in life, including self-determination and individualism. In Authenticity Guaranteed, Sally Robinson brings to light the unacknowledged gender and class assumptions of anti-consumerist critique in the second half of the twentieth century. American anti-consumerism, despite its apparent complexity, takes a remarkably consistent and predictable narrative form. From the mid-century Organization Man to the millennial No Logo, anti-consumerist critique reinforces the gender order by insisting that authenticity is threatened, and masculine agency curtailed, by the feminizing forces of consumer culture. Robinson identifies a tradition of masculine protest and rebellion against feminization in iconic texts such as The Catcher in the Rye and Fight Club, as well as in critiques of postmodernism, academic denunciations of shopping, and a variety of other discourses that aim to diagnose what ails American consumer culture. This fresh and timely argument enters into conversation with a wide range of existing scholarship and opens up new questions for scholarly and political discussion" -- From the publisher
Strengthening participation of children and young people with disability in advocacy : issues paper by Children with Disability Australia( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are multiple benefits for children and young people participating in advocacy and change-making, not just for themselves but for others. However, children and young people with disability face significant issues and barriers that can discourage, prevent, or exclude them for participation. This paper looks at how these young people's involvement in advocacy and change-making can be improved and strengthened. It provides a framework for understanding and measuring participation for young people with disability, identifies current barriers to creating opportunities, and presents strategies and examples on planning, implementing, and evaluating authentic and meaningful participation
The Evolving Southern Gothic : Traditions of Racial, Gender, and Sexual Horror in the Imagined American South by Claire Renae Cothren( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

In this dissertation, "The Evolving Southern Gothic: Traditions of Racial, Gender, and Sexual Horror in the Imagined American South," I advocate a reclaiming of the Gothic as a critical lens for study of literature set in the American South. The term "Southern Gothic" is one that has been maligned by a some scholars who suggest it is too-readily applied to the region's literature; however, because Gothic tropes-including grotesque figures, haunted houses, ghosts, and vampires-have enjoyed increasing popularity in literature and film about the American South over the past eighty years, it is imperative to theorize more fully the effects of this modal/regional pairing. Oftentimes, the Gothic is invoked to convey the oppressiveness of corrupt establishments or ideologies; it is little surprise, then, that when it is applied to a region with a unique history of slavery, lynching and prolonged segregation, the Southern Gothic frequently works to undercut institutionalized racism. However, the strategic ways in which Southern Gothic texts tend to link race to issues of gender and sexuality are rather more unexpected. Examining the trajectory of this repeated connection between race, gender, and sexuality in a variety of "Southern Gothic" texts from 1930 to the present, I argue that as opposed to simply rehashing the brutal racism of a Civil War or Jim Crow-era South, authors and filmmakers have used this literary mode not only to highlight the constructedness of racial caste systems, gender and sexual norms, and Southern exceptionalism but also to critique the often violent means through which these divisions are manufactured and upheld.
