Book Review: Subversive Pleasures: Bakhtin, Cultural Criticism, And Film, James Morrison Jan 1991

Book Review: Subversive Pleasures: Bakhtin, Cultural Criticism, And Film, James Morrison

CMC Faculty Publications and Research

...Subversive Pleasures implicitly critiques the dominant parochialism of contemporary film study with the bracing electicism of its method. Both for its basic enterprise of installing Bakhtin as a touchstone fro film scholars and for its rangy, intellectually restless methodological alternative to the constricting specializing of current film theory, Stam's book is among the most important recent contributions to film study.


Virginia Woolf & Postmodernism: Literature In Quest & Question Of Itself, Pamela L. Caughie Jan 1991

Virginia Woolf & Postmodernism: Literature In Quest & Question Of Itself, Pamela L. Caughie

English: Faculty Publications and Other Works

Virginia Woolf and Postmodernism argues not that Virginia Woolf is a postmodernist but that postmodern assumptions about art can account for her narrative innovations and feminist politics better than conventional modernist and feminist approaches to her works. In rethinking many of the prominent aesthetic and critical positions of her day, Woolf anticipated many postmodernist tenets.

D. 0. Fagunwa: The Art Of Fabulation And Writing Orality, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

Many non-Yoruba critics of African literature have often cited Yoruba writer D. 0. Fagunwa as a valuable contributor to African orature. However, these citations have tended to be allusions, passing references, in the critics' analyses of other African texts.1 There is still a great need for a purposeful analysis of the exact nature of Fagunwa's acclaimed literary contribution, particularly as it relates to the discussion of an afrocentric esthetic of African-language texts and the extent of his direct influence on African literature in English. Fagunwa is no stranger to Yorubas, young and old, literate and illiterate alike; but ...

The Last Harmattan Of Alusine Dunbar By Syl Cheney-Coker, Pamela J. Olúbùnmi Smith

Goodrich Scholarship Faculty Publications

A reenactment of the Edenic plunder. The setting? Anglophone Anywhere, West Africa. The time? Pre- colonial, colonial, and postcolonial period. The action? The brigandage and plunder of Africa, the old yet new drama of the psychological and political effects of duplicity, and the near-genocidal tendency inherent in the lack of communal cohesiveness.
