The Mother Tongues Of Modernity: Modernism, Transnationalism, Translation, Roland K. Végső 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

The Mother Tongues Of Modernity: Modernism, Transnationalism, Translation, Roland K. Végső

Faculty Publications -- Department of English

The relation of modernism to immigrant literatures should not be conceived in terms of an opposition between universalistic and particularistic discourses. Rather, we should explore what can be called a modernist transnationalism based on a general universalist argument. Two examples of this transnationalism are explored side by side: Ezra Pound’s and Anzia Yezierska’s definitions of the aesthetic act in terms of translation. The readings show that the critical discourses of these two authors are structured by a belief in universalism while showing opposite possibilities, both generated by modernist transnationalism. The essay concludes that we now need to interpret ...


American Poetry And The Daily Newspaper From The Rise Of The Penny Press To The New Journalism, Elizabeth M Lorang 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

American Poetry And The Daily Newspaper From The Rise Of The Penny Press To The New Journalism, Elizabeth M Lorang

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

This dissertation examines the relationship of poetry and the U.S. daily newspaper in the nineteenth century and begins the process of recovering and reevaluating nineteenth-century newspaper poetry. In doing so, it draws on and participates in current discussions about the role of poetry and poets in society, the importance of periodicals in the development and dissemination of American literature in the nineteenth century, and the value of studying non-canonical texts. The appearance and function of poems in daily newspapers changed over the course of the nineteenth century, and these changes were part of larger shifts in the newspaper and ...


"Just A Girl": The Community-Centered Cult Television Heroine, 1995-2007, Tamy Burnett 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

"Just A Girl": The Community-Centered Cult Television Heroine, 1995-2007, Tamy Burnett

Dissertations, Theses, and Student Research: Department of English

Found in the most recent group of cult heroines on television, community-centered cult heroines share two key characteristics. The first is their youth and the related coming-of-age narratives that result. The second is their emphasis on communal heroic action that challenges traditional understandings of the hero and previous constructions of the cult heroine on television. Through close readings of Xena: Warrior Princess, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, Dark Angel, and Veronica Mars, this project engages feminist theories of community and heroism alongside critical approaches to genre and narrative technique, identity performance theory, and visual media critique to explore the community-centered ...


The Identity Challenge In Toni Morrison's "Paradise", Vida De Voss 2010 Iowa State University

The Identity Challenge In Toni Morrison's "Paradise", Vida De Voss

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

This thesis analyzes identity in Toni Morrison's "Paradise." I argue that identity is portrayed as informed by relationships of the self and the other. Relying on Lacan's notion of the mirror phase I point out that the other is depicted as mirrored in the self. Employing Levinas's notions of totality and infinity I highlight portrayals of the self mirrored in the other - as when the self views the other through the self's self-conception or worldview. I conclude that "Paradise" challenges the universal individual to consider and respond to his or her co-constructed identity with the other ...

Testimony, Jonna C. Mackin 2009 Dartmouth College

Testimony, Jonna C. Mackin

Dr. Jonna C Mackin

This introduction to my book about comedy seeks to establish who I am as a writer of a book about comedy and about ethnicity. It then goes on to explain why comedy, identity and desire so often are linked by referencing theories of Diana Fuss and Homi Bhabha as well as Sigmund Freud on comedy.
