Resilient Russian Women In The 1920s & 1930s,
University of Nebraska - Lincoln
Resilient Russian Women In The 1920s & 1930s, Marcelline Hutton
The stories of Russian educated women, peasants, prisoners, workers, wives, and mothers of the 1920s and 1930s show how work, marriage, family, religion, and even patriotism helped sustain them during harsh times.
The Russian Revolution launched an economic and social upheaval that released peasant women from the control of traditional extended families. It promised urban women equality and created opportunities for employment and higher education. Yet, the revolution did little to eliminate Russian patriarchal culture, which continued to undermine women’s social, sexual, economic, and political conditions. Divorce and abortion became more widespread, but birth control remained limited, and sexual ...

Understanding Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude: An Analysis With A Lens For History And Anthropology,
Understanding Garcia Marquez's One Hundred Years Of Solitude: An Analysis With A Lens For History And Anthropology, John D. Norcross
A with Honors Projects
One Hundred Years of Solitude is a work of fiction, but the
happenings of this novel directly parallel the regional history of the
Caribbean coast of Colombia along with its interactions with Bogotá (the
capitol of Colombia) and the surrounding nation. In an area of the world
where any post-colonial history is remarkably fluid and an accurate precolonial
history is almost non-existent, Garcia Marquez’s account of
historical happenings within the realm of fiction is remarkably

Human Cloning As The Other In Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go, Wen Guo
CLCWeb: Comparative Literature and Culture
In her article "Human Cloning as the Other in Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go" Wen Guo analyzes Kazuo Ishiguro's novel with focus on Ishiguro's analogy between human cloning and people of marginality in contemporary society. Guo discusses the novel's ambience of doubt and suspense and elaborates on how the theme of otherness is addressed by Ishiguro's mock-realism in a landscape of science fiction. Further, Guo analyses the "unhomely" Hailsham of the novel, the clones' self-pursuit, and their ethical attitudes. Guo argues that in Ishiguro's novel a person's ethical choices are determined by his ...

The Uncertainty Of National And Cultural Identity In Salman Rushdie’S East, West And Midnight’S Children, Tress Klassen
Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects
This project involves the examination of two works by Salman Rushdie: a short story collection, East, West and a novel, Midnight’s Children. Looking at these texts through a postcolonial lens, I analyze Rushdie’s writing in terms of its relationship to the academic debates of the period and the historical context that grounds the works. Throughout the paper, I analyze Rushdie’s portrayal of the relationship between culture, nationhood, and identity, while also focusing on different aspects of the works in the project’s two chapters. In the first, I examine the relationship between postcolonialism and magical realism in ...
