A Luminous Haze; Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Plagiarism, Todd Richardson 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

A Luminous Haze; Or How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love Plagiarism, Todd Richardson

Louise Pound: A Folklore and Literature Miscellany

“I really was never any more than what I was,” Bob Dylan writes in his autobiography Chronicles, “a folk musician who gazed into the gray mist with tear-blinded eyes and made up songs that floated in a luminous haze.” I’d call his proclamation inefficient if that didn’t imply that it gets a job done, albeit poorly. The sentence, rather, strikes me as grand-sounding balderdash. It begins with a promise of humility, after which it gradually evaporates into bleary images that never realize anything resembling actual meaning. On the whole, Dylan is exceedingly specific throughout Chronicles, recounting in detail ...


The Great Games We Play: Fan Resistance And The Bbc Sherlock, Amanda Ewolt 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

The Great Games We Play: Fan Resistance And The Bbc Sherlock, Amanda Ewolt

Louise Pound: A Folklore and Literature Miscellany

Discontented with mainstream value systems, the Sherlock fandom is tireless in implementing various forms of resistance to question the balance of power and authority between producer, consumer, and text. One such method is slash fanfiction, which is both a tool for understanding and creating meaning from the source text and an act of defiance from those who feel marginalized by the dominant culture. Yet, I argue, Sherlock is a special case. Sherlock itself is a brilliant and intertextual rereading of Arthur Conan Doyle's original text; in other words, the show itself is elaborate fanfiction, which complicates the typical producer-fandom ...


Beasts And Bluebeards: Reader Reception, The Fairy Tale And Jane Eyre, Brittany Warman, Sara Cleto 2019 University of Nebraska at Omaha

Beasts And Bluebeards: Reader Reception, The Fairy Tale And Jane Eyre, Brittany Warman, Sara Cleto

Louise Pound: A Folklore and Literature Miscellany

The 19th-century novel Jane Eyre by Charlotte Brontë has been frequently mined for its folkloric allusions, particularly the fairy tales that haunt the narrative's characterization, plot, and atmosphere. Moving beyond so-called motif spotting, this article will explore the ways in which two of the main fairy tale intertexts of the novel - "Beauty and the Beast" and "Bluebeard" - duel for supremacy in the reader's mind, creating a tension that ultimately determines reception. Drawing primarily on narrative and reader- response theory, we will argue that the uncertainty regarding exactly which fairy tale is being called upon allows Brontë to create ...


Introduction: What Kind Of Mother, Shelley Ingram 2019 University of Louisiana at Lafayette

Introduction: What Kind Of Mother, Shelley Ingram

Louise Pound: A Folklore and Literature Miscellany

We’ve long studied the folklore in literature, but there is also literature in folklore, so we can also reverse our gaze to see how literature has been taken up and incorporated into the folk culture of groups – a book club, or a fandom, or a knitting circle. We study the ways in which authors use, for example, forms of folk narrative to structure a text, how they tap into the cultural knowledge of their myriad readerships to add depth to their pages. But we can also look inward to find certain ambiguities built into a text which invite or ...

Increasing Faculty-Librarian Collaboration Through Critical Librarianship, Adrienne Gosselin, Mandi Goodsett 2019 Cleveland State University

Increasing Faculty-Librarian Collaboration Through Critical Librarianship, Adrienne Gosselin, Mandi Goodsett

Michael Schwartz Library Publications

Through the lens of critical librarianship, librarians are becoming increasingly involved in social justice, civic engagement, and human rights issues. This paper examines the collaboration between a subject librarian and a faculty member in an assignment that engaged in Public Sphere Pedagogy (PSP), a teaching strategy with the goal of increasing students’ sense of civic agency and personal and social responsibility by connecting their classwork to public arenas; and project-based learning, wherein students develop a question to research and create projects that reflect their knowledge, which they share with a select audience.
