Moving Into The Third Dimension: Nicole Brossard’S Picture Theory, Katharine Conley Jan 2005

Moving Into The Third Dimension: Nicole Brossard’S Picture Theory, Katharine Conley

Arts & Sciences Book Chapters

Beginning with the title reference to Ludwig Wittgenstein's Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus, Nicole Brossard incorporates familiar textual voices into Picture Theory, her densely polyphonic novel from 1982, and thickens it with cross references, casting shadows within it. The novel's intertexts are lit by Brossard's vision of the hologram as a model for writing as articulated in her essay "The Aerial Letter" from 1980, rather than by Cartesian patriarchal reason. The intellectual space of the novel drifts, according to Picture Theory's emblematic word (and name) derive (Derive), or turns around the reader like a translucent textual scarf, leaving the ...

Calling The Tune: Impact Of Domestic Worker’S Earnings On Intra-Household Gender Relations, Gul Ozyegin Jan 2005

Calling The Tune: Impact Of Domestic Worker’S Earnings On Intra-Household Gender Relations, Gul Ozyegin

Arts & Sciences Book Chapters

Before the Servant Project began its activities, on the initiative of the editor of this book, the long term history of domestic service was still in its beginning stage. This volume is the first wide-ranging attempt to determine the role of domestic workers both in past and present times. Domestic service was of major importance in the multi-secular process of urbanization and socio-economic development of European societies. Today, domestic workers (mainly women) represent an important component of international labour migrations to Western countries. Instead of disappearing, as expected for a long time, paid domestic work is currently experiencing a kind ...


A Person Is Born: Stalinist Myth Of The Great Family In Film Genres Of The Thaw, Alexander V. Prokhorov Jan 2005

A Person Is Born: Stalinist Myth Of The Great Family In Film Genres Of The Thaw, Alexander V. Prokhorov

Arts & Sciences Book Chapters

Метафоры социального и кровного родства стали в последнее время едва ли не господствующей формой концептуанализации политического, экономического и культурного развития: от "ельцинской Семьи" до "питерского клана", от "Солдатских матерей" до "батяни-комбата", от "солнцевской братвы" до "дедовщины", наконец, от "Моей семьи" до кинодилогии о "Брате". Используя обширный исторический, социологический и культурологический материал, статьи, собранные в этой книге, пытаются объяснить привлекательность родственных связей и семейных уз. В первом томе сборника исследуются идеологические контексты существования семей, способы формирования семейных союзов, а также разнообразные бытовые тактики и половые стратегии семейной жизни. Во второй том вошли статьи, посвященные различным типам семейного воспитания детей, проблемам жизни ...

Medicating Slavery: Motherhood, Health Care, And Cultural Practices In The African Diaspora, Ywone Edwards-Ingram Jan 2005

Medicating Slavery: Motherhood, Health Care, And Cultural Practices In The African Diaspora, Ywone Edwards-Ingram

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

A sophisticated exploration of the intricacies of motherhood and health care practices of people of African descent, especially the enslaved population of Virginia, can shed light on their notions of a well-lived life and the factors preventing or contributing to these principles. I situate my dissertation within this ideal as I examine how the health and well-being of enslaved people were linked to broader issues of economic exploitation, domination, resistance, accommodation, and cultural interactions. Historical and archaeological studies have shown that the living and working conditions of enslaved people were detrimental to their health. Building on these findings, I explore ...


Marketing To The 'Liberated' Woman: Feminism, Social Change, And Beauty Culture, 1960--2000, Elizabeth A. Kreydatus Jan 2005

Marketing To The 'Liberated' Woman: Feminism, Social Change, And Beauty Culture, 1960--2000, Elizabeth A. Kreydatus

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This dissertation is a study of the influence of the women's movement on the marketing of beauty products between 1960 and 2000. The first and last chapters study feminist critiques of normative beauty standards and explore the challenges feminists faced when they tried to effect cultural change.;While the dissertation is framed by analysis of feminist engagement with beauty culture, the bulk of the dissertation examines beauty industries, focusing on the ways that these industries reflect debates over woman's identity and status. Chapter two traces the marketing of perfume between 1960 and 2000 by chronicling changing advertising campaigns ...


The Jeffersons At Shadwell: The Social And Material World Of A Virginia Family, Susan A. Kern Jan 2005

The Jeffersons At Shadwell: The Social And Material World Of A Virginia Family, Susan A. Kern

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

From the 1730s through the 1770s Shadwell was home to Jane and Peter Jefferson, their eight children, over sixty slaves owned by them, and numerous hired workers. Archaeological and documentary evidence reveals much about Thomas Jefferson's boyhood home. Shadwell was a well-appointed gentry house at the center of a highly structured plantation landscape during a period of Piedmont settlement that scholars have traditionally classified as frontier. Yet the Jeffersons accommodated in their house, landscape, material goods, and behaviors the most up-to-date expectations of Virginia's elite tidewater culture. The material remnants of Shadwell raise questions about the character of ...


Screen Strife: Race, Gender, And Movie Censorship In The New South, 1922--1965, Melissa D. Ooten Jan 2005

Screen Strife: Race, Gender, And Movie Censorship In The New South, 1922--1965, Melissa D. Ooten

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

In 1922, Virginia's General Assembly created a Motion Picture Censorship Board, which viewed every movie seeking legal exhibition in Virginia until 1965. This cultural regulation of popular culture complemented other economic and political policies of the state designed to buttress the power of white, middle-to-upper class elites within the state. to this end, the censors, empowered by the authority of the state, were particularly concerned with regulating certain images of African Americans and female sexuality on-screen.;Yet the process of censorship was a contested, fluid practice, and individuals and community groups protested formal censorship decisions. Furthermore, filmmakers whose films ...


Absconded: Fugitive Slaves In The "Daybook Of The Richmond Police Guard, 1834--1844", Leni Ashmore Sorensen Jan 2005

Absconded: Fugitive Slaves In The "Daybook Of The Richmond Police Guard, 1834--1844", Leni Ashmore Sorensen

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

In the antebellum period Richmond, Virginia newspapers ran advertisements for runaway slaves. Most of the ads concerned individuals absconded from outlying counties, distant regions of the state, or nearby states. These short notices have been used frequently to describe and discuss runaways and the link between flight and freedom in Virginia. In contrast to the brief newspaper entries the Daybook of the Richmond Police Guard, 1834--1844 provides names and detailed descriptions of nine hundred-thirty-five runaways all of whom lived in the city and were reported within the city precincts during one ten year period. The Daybook is a hand written ...


Three Peoples, One King: Loyalists, Indians, Slaves And The American Revolution In The Deep South, 1775-1782, James R. Piecuch Jan 2005

Three Peoples, One King: Loyalists, Indians, Slaves And The American Revolution In The Deep South, 1775-1782, James R. Piecuch

Dissertations, Theses, and Masters Projects

This study examines the roles of white loyalists, Indians and African-Americans in the British effort to regain control of South Carolina and Georgia during the American Revolution, 1775--1782.;British officials believed that support from these three groups would make the conquest of the Deep South colonies a relatively easy task. But when the British launched a major effort to regain first Georgia and then South Carolina, the attempt ultimately ended in failure. Most historians have explained this outcome by arguing that British planning was faulty in its conception, and that officials overestimated both the numbers of southern loyalists and the ...
