James H. Gipson And The Effort To Free Ezra Pound, Alessandro G. Meregaglia Oct 2018

James H. Gipson And The Effort To Free Ezra Pound, Alessandro G. Meregaglia

Alessandro Meregaglia

On May 3, 1945, armed partisans arrested Ezra Pound in Italy. This began the extradition process to the United States, where, two years earlier, Pound had been indicted in absentia for treason. The charges were based on the content of radio broadcasts he made in Italy, where he had lived for the past twenty years. Pound was brought to the United States, declared mentally insane, and sent to St. Elizabeths, a government hospital in Washington, D.C. Pound vehemently maintained his innocence; his wife, Dorothy Shakespear Pound, moved to D.C. and rented a room near the hospital so she ...


Postindustrial Societies, Brian Hoey Dec 2014

Postindustrial Societies, Brian Hoey

Brian A. Hoey, Ph.D.

The term postindustrial society presupposes categorizing society based on an economic means of classification. Its use rests on assessing the relative status of manufacturing industry as an economic sector. Significant adjustment in sectoral location and nature of employment precipitated by late-twentieth-century deindustrialization in the developed world led many social theorists and critics to predict broad changes throughout domains of everyday life. Some began to speak not only of sectoral transformation but also of an emergent ‘ postindustrial society. ’ Following earlier agrarian and industrial ‘ revolutions, ’ postindustrialism suggested yet another revolution that would again transform how societies were organized.

Nostalgia For The Liberal Hour: Talkin' 'Bout The Horizons Of Norman Jewison's Generation, Daniel Mcneil Dec 2011

Nostalgia For The Liberal Hour: Talkin' 'Bout The Horizons Of Norman Jewison's Generation, Daniel Mcneil

Daniel McNeil

Throughout his career as a filmmaker Norman Jewison has confronted stereotypes that depict white liberals as hypocritical and insincere do-gooders. He has also seized and contested the position of victim against radicals on the left and right. This paper outlines some of the commonalities between the Canadian filmmaker and Robin Winks and Michael Banton, two prominent academics in the United States and the United Kingdom who also opposed the "unacceptable face of capitalism" and the “overly politicized” scholarship of radical intellectuals. My conclusion provides a counterpoint to the liberal humanism of Jewison, Winks and Banton by turning to the new ...

Generational Theory And Collective Autobiography, John D. Hazlett Dec 1991

Generational Theory And Collective Autobiography, John D. Hazlett

John D Hazlett

Hazlett's essay examines the emergence of generational theory at the beginning of the 20th Century, considers some of the reasons for its popularity, and then shows how generationalism influenced the autobiographical writing of two self-proclaimed generational groups: the writers who came of age in the 1920s, and the group of activists and writers who came of age in the 1960s.
