From the margins of empire : Christina Stead, Doris Lessing, Nadine Gordimer by Louise Yelin( )

18 editions published between 1998 and 2018 in English and held by 1,491 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Situated at the intersection of the colonial and the postcolonial, the modern and the postmodern, the novelists Christina Stead, Doris Lessing, and Nadine Gordimer all bear witness to this century's global transformations. From the Margins of Empire looks at how the question of national identity is constructed in their writings. These authors-white women who were born or grew up in British colonies or former colonies-reflect the subject of national identity in vastly different ways in both their lives and their work. Stead, who resided outside of her native Australia, has an unsettled identity. Lessing, who grew up in southern Rhodesia and migrated to England, is or has become English. Gordimer, who was born in South Africa and remains there, considers herself South African. Louise Yelin shows how the three writers' different national identities are inscribed in their fiction. The invented, hybrid character of nationality is, she maintains, a constant throughout. Locating the writings of Stead, Lessing, and Gordimer in the national cultures that produced and read them, she considers the questions they raise about the roles that whites, especially white women, can play in the new political and cultural order
Robin Rhode : animating the everyday by Robin Rhode( Book )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... focuses on the remarkable digital videos that Rhode identifies in his taxonomy of his practice as "animations." These animations articulate drawing and movement: juxtapose sound and image; recycle everyday objects such as bicycles, chairs, musical instruments, and sports equipment; and refashion artistic precursors and contemporaries such as Marcel Duchamp, Gerrit Rietveld, Mies van der Rohe, William Kentridge, and Richard Serra. Produced in studios, in the streets, and in Rhode's parents' yard in Johannesburg, the animations feature an uncanny conjunction of the familiar and the strange and vividly stage the perils and delights of everyday life as magnified by the power of Rhode's imagination. This volume surveys the range of the artists's animations since 2002, which register events or performances that unfold in time, and amplifies these with a selection of photographic series that correspond to or complement his time-based art."--Back cover
