Willing Paradise: Death, Desire, And Shame In Emily Dickinson's Poetry, Ashley N. Etter 2020 College of Saint Scholastica

Willing Paradise: Death, Desire, And Shame In Emily Dickinson's Poetry, Ashley N. Etter

The Macksey Journal

Emily Dickinson’s poetry engages, above all, with questions about selfhood and identity, anticipating the postmodern notion that the self emerges in response to the other. Dickinson individuates the other as Death, a male suitor at once alluring and repulsive, who stands in relationship with the self as the “enigmatic, inscrutable” other, to use Judith Butler’s terms. Death’s representations, then, are multitudinous: he presents himself alternately as a lover, a friend, and a foe, never the same, yet always demanding a response. Confronted with this overwhelming ethical responsibility, Dickinson’s (often ungendered) speakers suffer deeply—psychologically and physically ...


Now Or Have Ever Been: The Politics Of Films Of The Hollywood Blacklist Era, Breanna McCann 2020 Robert Morris University

Now Or Have Ever Been: The Politics Of Films Of The Hollywood Blacklist Era, Breanna Mccann

The Macksey Journal

The Hollywood blacklist era was a dark time in American history where many in the film industry were dragged before a congressional committee and interrogated about their political affiliations. Some lost their jobs, friends, or even their lives. The House Un-American Activities Committee carefully picked apart many films of the era in the search for subversive ideologies. As a result, filmmakers became more creative and subtle in their criticisms of the Hollywood blacklist. Director Elia Kazan and screenwriter Carl Foreman perfected this allegorical criticism through their creation of two films that reflected themselves and their respective decisions whether or not ...


Desegregation Through Entertainment: Rodgers And Hammerstein’S South Pacific As An Instrument Of Military Policy, Leana M. Sottile 2020 Chapman University

Desegregation Through Entertainment: Rodgers And Hammerstein’S South Pacific As An Instrument Of Military Policy, Leana M. Sottile

The Macksey Journal

American musical theatre has served as a composite of historical and cultural memory through its history but has also been an instrument of supporting changing American military policy and culture. The most notable example of this is Rodgers and Hammerstein's critically acclaimed musical South Pacific. Set during the Second World War II, the musical was celebrated by the American public for upholding Greatest Generation nostalgia and its progressive views on racial tolerance. Its depiction of the war was acclaimed by veterans and service members alike, prompting the shows heavy usage by the military to assist in the cultural changes ...

Not All Skinfolk Are Kinfolk: The Impact Of The Miseducation Of Black Homogeneity In America, Neud's Saint-Cyr 2020 University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Not All Skinfolk Are Kinfolk: The Impact Of The Miseducation Of Black Homogeneity In America, Neud's Saint-Cyr

The Macksey Journal

The idea of a need for oneness in the black community at large has been unrefuted and celebrated. This notion has been supported by many popular figures and paradigms, in particular, the Pan Africanism paradigm, which calls for the unity of all black people regardless of origin, on all levels and aspects of life. In this research the author aims to show that the assumption of homogeneity in the black community is the root of tensions in the black community between African Americans and black immigrants. Through an autoethnography, the researcher a black immigrant living in America argues that negating ...

They’Ll Only Stop Killin’ Us, If You Say Please: The Role Of #Blacklivesmatter, Black Twitter, And Flint, Michigan In Modern Day Respectability Politics, Chasia Elzina Jeffries

The Macksey Journal

Respectability politics, which require Black folks to make ourselves as non-confrontational, palatable, and white as possible, pressing our hair, pulling up our pants, and speaking properly are a lasting remnant of the diligent work of Black women during the Jim Crow Era to ensure social uplift and Black survival. This project traces the history of Black women in the development of performative survival and highlights our position and the efficacy of code-switching today, primarily through the Flint Water Crisis. As Black Americans refuse to conform to white standards, becoming more and more proud of our Blackness and as innocent Black ...
