Exploitation Of Land And Labor In Appalachia: The Manipulation Of Men In Ann Pancake's Strange As This Weather Has Been, Britani W. Baker 2017 University of Southern Mississippi

Exploitation Of Land And Labor In Appalachia: The Manipulation Of Men In Ann Pancake's Strange As This Weather Has Been, Britani W. Baker

Master's Theses

Ecofeminism is traditionally interested in the relationship between patriarchal domination of women and nature. Ann Pancake’s novel Strange As this Weather Has Been critiques the way the coal mining industry has affected the Appalachian people and land. The novel reflects natural ecofeminism, which views the connection between women and nature in essentialist terms. This outdated mode of ecofeminism leads to a reinforcement of gender stereotypes and a misrepresentation of the relationship between gender, nature, and culture. This study of Pancake’s novel employs a material ecofeminist approach to both critique and develop the novel’s gender politics. Material ecofeminism ...


The Woman Of Sorrows: Clara's Self-Destructive Behavior Based On Supernatural Belief In Wieland, Or The Transformation: An American Tale By Charles Brockden Brown, Paden Carlson 2017 Utah State University

The Woman Of Sorrows: Clara's Self-Destructive Behavior Based On Supernatural Belief In Wieland, Or The Transformation: An American Tale By Charles Brockden Brown, Paden Carlson

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Much has been devoted to the study of causality and ambiguity within Charles Brockden Brown’s Wieland, or the Transformation. While there is textual and cultural evidence providing explanations for Clara’s behavior, little has been said about the ramifications of Clara’s actions. This essay seeks to add to the discussion of Wieland by exploring Clara’s transformation from theistic rationalist to someone who is inclined to believe in supernatural explanation concerning seemingly inexplicable events.

In more than one instance, Clara’s supernaturally-charged beliefs endanger her. Brown uses Clara’s increasing reliance on supernatural explanation to suggest that, should ...

Living Lore: B. A. Botkin, Folklore, And The State, Kirby Little 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

Living Lore: B. A. Botkin, Folklore, And The State, Kirby Little

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

This digital project explores government surveillance and political action through folklore. The project focuses on the unpublished essay of folklorist Benjamin Botkin titled “Progress: Negroes and Everybody, From Folk Tale to Science Fiction.” Botkin was a prominent academic in his field, and created the theoretical approach to folklore he termed “applied folklore.” Botkin’s approach to folklore gained considerable attention, both positive and negative, due to his unique emphasis on the present time and the ever-changing nature of folklore, and his politicization of folklore as a method for uniting working class citizens. For decades, Botkin was under clandestine surveillance by ...

Civil Warfare: Naturalism, Isolation, And Place In Stephen Crane's The Red Badge Of Courage And Maggie: A Girl Of The Streets, Brandi Jones 2017 Clark Atlanta University

Civil Warfare: Naturalism, Isolation, And Place In Stephen Crane's The Red Badge Of Courage And Maggie: A Girl Of The Streets, Brandi Jones

Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University

Stephen Crane relayed two significant American war stories in The Red Badge of Courage (1895) and Maggie: A Girl of the Streets (1893). While one bildungsroman details aspects of the American Civil War, the other unveils a subtler, societal war transpiring within the slums of New York City. Henry, the protagonist of The Red Badge of Courage, combats psychological turmoil when facing his terrors of war. Conversely, Maggie, the protagonist of Maggie: A Girl of the Streets, remains naively unaware of the social war occurring within her New York community, the Bowery. Crane’s works suggest that inner-city New York ...


The Unknown Soldier In The 21st Century: War Commemoration In Contemporary Canadian Cultural Production, Andrew Edward Lubowitz 2017 The University of Western Ontario

The Unknown Soldier In The 21st Century: War Commemoration In Contemporary Canadian Cultural Production, Andrew Edward Lubowitz

Electronic Thesis and Dissertation Repository

Over the past two decades, expressions of Canadian national identity have become increasingly militarized in cultural production in the commemorative works that have been created, renovated, or re-inscribed in Canada or in important Canadian international sites such as the Vimy Memorial in France. An integral component to this militarization is the paradoxical figure of the Unknown Soldier, both a man and a symbol, known and unknown, individualized and universal. Despite its origins in Europe after the First World War, the Unknown Soldier Memorial tradition has been reinvigorated in a Canadian context in the twenty-first century because it elevates white masculine ...
