The Living Dead In Colonial And Neo-Colonial Worlds: Fanon’S Mass Attack On The Ego In Cliff, Kincaid And Aidoo, A.C. Warner Jun 2007

The Living Dead In Colonial And Neo-Colonial Worlds: Fanon’S Mass Attack On The Ego In Cliff, Kincaid And Aidoo, A.C. Warner

Human Architecture: Journal of the Sociology of Self-Knowledge

Samira Kawash deals with the importance of the translation of the effects of a mass attack on the ego into psychological terms, in Fanon's study of a patient who believed he was stalked by a vampire. I use these observations to examine apparitions in Michelle Cliff's Free Enterprise, Jamaica Kincaid's Autobiography of My Mother and Ama Ata Aidoo's Our Sister Killjoy, and argue that appearances in these works of creatures that have meanings similar to that of zombis (in that they represent the practice of appropriating the bodies for the use of others) show a comparative ...


The Adolescent Rebellion Against Panoptical Society: A Foucauldian Analysis Of Adolescent Development In Contemporary Young Adult Novels., Clarissa Elizabeth Allen May 2007

The Adolescent Rebellion Against Panoptical Society: A Foucauldian Analysis Of Adolescent Development In Contemporary Young Adult Novels., Clarissa Elizabeth Allen

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

Young adult literature has developed from a didactic means of behavioral control over adolescents to a means of promoting the reader's psychological development as an independent individual. In contemporary works (1970s onward), the use of Foucault's theory of the Panoptical society has given way to the development of the role of the adolescent rebel. In these novels, a pattern can be seen in which the protagonist defies the control of the Panoptical society and accepts the role of adolescent rebel. In particular, this pattern can be seen in the works of Francine Prose (After), Jerry Spinelli (Wringer and ...

Balancing Rosie And June: A Study Of Lynchburg College Postwar Alumnae And The Impact Of The Feminine Mystique, Dinah Watson Mar 2007

Balancing Rosie And June: A Study Of Lynchburg College Postwar Alumnae And The Impact Of The Feminine Mystique, Dinah Watson

Undergraduate Theses and Capstone Projects

In 2003, the movie Mona Lisa Smile debuted describing the frustrations that many college women may have faced in the years after World War II. Wellesley College was the elite all-female institution that openly and proudly prepared its young women with the proper rules of etiquette and correctness. Despite Wellesley’s own excellent academic reputation, its close proximity to the prestigious single-sex male college, Harvard, made it even more appealing and convenient for the Wellesley girls to find a “suitable” husband. The novice young art instructor, Katherine Watson, was unique in that she wanted to offer her students not only ...


Efigie De Luigi Corsaro, Leysser L. Leon Jan 2007

Efigie De Luigi Corsaro, Leysser L. Leon

Leysser L. León

Ha fallecido en Perugia, a los 72 años, el Prof. Luigi Corsaro (1940-2012), que auspició y dirigió mis investigaciones jurídicas e interdisciplinarias por seis años (2000-2005). En el 2007, a pedido de una revista dirigida y editada por varios de mis alumnos más destacados, escribí estas páginas evocativas de sus enseñanzas y de su papel en mi formación académica. Las vuelvo a publicar, por este medio, confiando en que pueda difundirse entre el mayor público posible (especialmente entre los jóvenes estudiantes) la imagen de un jurista, de un Maestro cuyas lecciones universitarias y de vida me acompañarán por siempre.
