A Never Ending Journey: The Impossibilities Of Home In Sirena Selena Vestida De Pena And Flores De Otro Mundo, Irune Del Rio Gabiola Jan 2016

A Never Ending Journey: The Impossibilities Of Home In Sirena Selena Vestida De Pena And Flores De Otro Mundo, Irune Del Rio Gabiola

Irune Gabiola

Reconsiderations of home have been crucially examined in Caribbean cultural productions. As Jamil Khader argues in her article on “Subaltern Cosmopolitanism: Community and Transnational Mobility in Caribbean Postcolonial Feminist Writings,” Caribbean feminists are faced with the task of challenging a conventional idea of home that has historically located women and other marginal subjects under conditions of oppression and exploitation. In focusing on the narratives by Aurora Levins Morales, Rosario Morales and Esmeralda Santiago, she points out the infinite sense of homelessness that invades, in particular, these Puerto Rican individuals who need to find more productive manners to articulate “home” while ...

Antiquity Now: The Classical World In The Contemporary American Imagination, Thomas Jenkins Oct 2015

Antiquity Now: The Classical World In The Contemporary American Imagination, Thomas Jenkins

Thomas E Jenkins

Written in a lively and accessible style, Antiquity Now opens our gaze to the myriad uses and abuses of classical antiquity in contemporary fiction, film, comics, drama, television - and even internet forums. With every chapter focusing on a different aspect of classical reception - including sexuality, politics, gender and ethnicity - this book explores the ideological motivations behind contemporary American allusions to the classical world. Ultimately, this kaleidoscope of receptions - from calls for marriage equality to examinations of gang violence to passionate pleas for peace (or war) - reveals a 'classical antiquity' that reconfigures itself daily, as modernity explains itself to itself through ...

Politics Closer To Home: The Impact Of Subnational Institutions On Women In Politics, Candice Ortbals Dec 2011

Politics Closer To Home: The Impact Of Subnational Institutions On Women In Politics, Candice Ortbals

Candice D. Ortbals

Scholars recognize a worldwide increase in decentralization as well as the prevalence of multilevel governance in Europe. This article examines the advantages and disadvantages that meso-level institutions present for women’s political representation in three European Union member-states that are decentralized, unitary states. Using the framework of the triangle of women’s empowerment, we ask whether women are represented in meso-level legislatures, women’s policy agencies, and women’s movements in Italy, Spain, and Poland. We find that gains in meso-level legislatures are slow, but meso-level women’s policy agencies and movements provide important access for women to politics. Like ...

Making A Home For All In God's Compassionate Community: A Feminist Liberation Assessment Of Christian Responses To Homelessness And Housing, Laura Stivers Dec 2007

Making A Home For All In God's Compassionate Community: A Feminist Liberation Assessment Of Christian Responses To Homelessness And Housing, Laura Stivers

Laura Stivers

The American dream includes owning a home, and the bigger the better. Christian responses to homelessness and housing vary. Some Christian organizations focus on fixing the person and the behaviors that contribute to homelessness. Others promote home ownership for low-income households. Employing aspects of Traci West's feminist liberationist ethical methodology, I will assess how these approaches buy into our culture's dominant ideology on housing or offer prophetic disruption. Then I will outline an advocacy approach that addresses the multiple causes of homelessness and prophetically aims to make a home for all in God's compassionate community.

U.S.-Japan Women’S Journal, Special Issue On Itō Hiromi, Jeffrey Angles Dec 2006

U.S.-Japan Women’S Journal, Special Issue On Itō Hiromi, Jeffrey Angles

Jeffrey Angles

Itō, born in 1955 in Tokyo, is one of the most important and dynamic poets of contemporary Japanese literature. After her sensational debut in the late 1970s, she emerged as the foremost voice of the wave of women's poetry that swept Japan in the 1980s, writing about the female body, sexuality, abortion, migration, and international displacement with a frankness that revolutionized the way that poetry was being written in Japan. This journal consists of a number of new analytical essays by several young researchers of Japanese literature about Itō's contributions to modern Japanese literature and feminine self-expression. It ...
