"When familiar meanings dissolve-- " : essays in French studies in memory of Malcolm Bowie by Naomi Segal( )

12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 639 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume commemorates the work of Malcolm Bowie, who died in 2007. It includes selected papers drawn from the conference held in his memory at the Institute of Germanic & Romance Studies, University of London, in May 2008, inspired by his work in nineteenth- and twentieth-century French literature. Malcolm Bowie was instrumental in shaping French studies in the United Kingdom into the interdisciplinary field it now is. The contributions to this collection are grouped around Bowie{u2019}s principal interests and specialisms: poetry, Proust, theory, visual art and music. The book is, however, more than a memorial to Malcolm Bowie{u2019}s work and legacy. In its inclusion of work by established and eminent members of the academic profession as well as new and emerging scholars, it is also a showcase for cutting-edge work in French studies in the United Kingdom and beyond. -- From publisher's website

André Gide : pederasty and pedagogy by Naomi Segal( Book )

7 editions published between 1998 and 2004 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book makes a powerful and sometimes contentious contribution to current debates in gender, feminism, and queer theory. Tracing the hydraulic image in a range of theoretical texts on pedagogy, pederasty, reproductive fantasy, and the anthropology of body fluids, Naomi Segal goes on to examine this imagery in the writings of Andre Gide." "Gide's sexuality was explicitly central to everything he wrote, but it was complex and diverse, motivated as much by undesire as by curiosity and the chase. The ventriloquism of the female voice, versions of triangularity, the potentially endless male chain, the desire of sun on skin, a sideways genealogy, and the gratuity of crime, education, virtue, or play - these mobile patterns are found throughout his fiction and non-fiction. In Gide's polemic, it is always better to be loved by an uncle than an aunt; but all love is motivated by the fluidity of the swerve."--Jacket
Narcissus and Echo : women in the French récit by Naomi Segal( Book )

7 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 325 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Narcissus and Echo" is about romantic confessional fiction, in which the woman dies and the man lives to tell "his" tale. Whether femme fatale, nun, sister, aristocrat or fallen women, she is always somehow blamed for her own destruction. What motivates the man's narrative and how does the women's voice, curiously, survive the text? Naomi Segal brings insights from feminist and psychoanalytic theory to bear on writers such as Chateaubriand, Musset, Prevost and Gautier. Running throughout this lively and provocative study are dichotomies between speech and sight, male "doubles" and female "mirror", the narcissism of nostalgia and the paradoxes of undesire

13 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Taking as its starting-point Denis de Rougemont's famous observation that 'Happy love has no story', Scarlet Letters explores the fascination exerted by the adultery motif throughout the long history of western cultures. Critics from the UK, USA and Australia, working in a variety of specialisms, have contributed to this substantial new collection which offers a number of close readings of key texts as well as wider contextualisations of this obsessive concern with the narrative potential of triangular patterns
Indeterminate bodies( Book )

8 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Current research in genetics seems to be mapping and determining the past, present and future of the human body. This is a moment when questions of control and representation of the body have become vital for policy-makers, artists, theorists and cultural critics. Indeterminate Bodies makes a timely intervention into these debates by addressing questions of the body's determination and indeterminacy across a broad range of historical and contemporary fields."--Jacket
From literature to cultural literacy by Naomi Segal( Book )

8 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In current contexts one can be a literary scholar and yet be working on objects other than poems, dramas or fiction. Something has happened to both the researchers and the discipline that has transformed this humanities domain, bringing it into a sharper focus to investigate the readability of contemporary social issues. The essays in this book, written by scholars from ten countries, range across this research domain, renamed 'literary-and-cultural studies', or LCS. LCS depends on four key concepts -- textuality, fictionality, rhetoricity and historicity -- which characterize both the material and the methods of their research. The 16 essays look at four broad fields: cultural memory; migration and translation; electronic textuality; and biopolitics, biosociality and the body. The aim of the collection is to deploy and enhance cultural literacy, a way of looking at social and cultural issues - especially issues of change and mobility - through the lens of literary thinking

On replacement : cultural, social and psychological representations( )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 130 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an interdisciplinary study of the human drama of replacement. Is one?s irreplaceability dependent on surrounding oneself by a replication of others? Is love intrinsically repetitious or built on a fantasy of uniqueness? The sense that a person?s value is blotted out if someone takes their place can be seen in the serial monogamy of our age and in the lives of?replacement children? - children born into a family that has recently lost a child, whom they may even be named after. The book investigates various forms of replacement, including AI and doubling, incest and bedtricks, imposters and revenants, human rights and?surrogacy?, and intertextuality and adaptation. The authors highlight the emotions of betrayal, jealousy and desire both within and across generations. 'On Replacement' consists of 24 essays divided into seven sections: What is replacement?, Law & society, Wayward women, Lost children, Replacement films, The Holocaust and Psychoanalysis. The book will appeal to anyone engaged in reading cultural and social representations of replacement

The skin ego by Didier Anzieu( Book )

7 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic work, the author presents and develops his theory of the importance of 'the Skin-ego'. Just as the skin is wrapped around the body, sothe authorsees the 'Skin-ego' as a psychical wrapping containing, defining and consolidating the subject. From this perspective, the structure and functions of the skin can provide psychoanalysts and general readers with a fertile and practical metaphor. The author's concept of the Skin-ego is the answer to questions he regards as crucial to contemporary psychoanalysis: questions of topography which were left incomplete by Freud; the analysis of fantasies of the container as of the contained; issues of touch between mothers and babies; extending the concept of prohibitions within an Oedipal framework to those derived from a prohibition on touching; and questions pertaining to the representation of the body and to its psychoanalytic setting. This new translation of Le Moi-peau is based on the second and last (1995) edition
