Description : Read Now Fractured Borders by Mary K. DeShazer and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. women have been writing about cancer for decades, but since the early 1990s, the body of literature on cancer has increased exponentially as growing numbers of women face the searing realities of the disease and give testimony to its ravages and revelations. fractured borders: reading women's cancer literature surveys a wide range of contemporary writing about breast, uterine, and ovarian cancer, including works by marilyn hacker, margaret edson, carole maso, audre lorde, eve sedgwick, mahasweta devi, lucille clifton, alicia ostriker, jayne anne phillips, terry tempest williams, and jeanette winterson, among many others. deshazer's readings bring insights from body theory, performance theory, feminist literary criticism, french feminisms, and disability studies to bear on these works, shining new light on a literary subject that is engaging more and more writers. "an important and useful book that will appeal to people in a variety of fields and walks of life, including scholars, teachers, and anyone interested in this subject." --suzanne poirier, university of illinois at chicago "a book on a timely and important topic, wisely written beyond scholarly boundaries and crossing many theoretical and disciplinary lines." --patricia moran, university of california, davis

Description : Read Now Beyond Consolation by Melissa Fran Zeiger and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. using as her starting point the story of orpheus and eurydice, melissa f. zeiger examines modern transformations of poetic elegy, particularly as they reflect historical changes in the politics of gender and sexuality. although her focus is primarily on nineteenth- and twentieth-century poetry, the scope of her investigation is grand: from john milton's "lycidas" to very recently written aids and breast cancer elegies. milton epitomized the traditional use of the orpheus myth as an illustration of the female threat to masculine poetic prowess, focused on the beleaguered orpheus. zeiger documents the gradual inclusion of eurydice, from the elegies of algernon charles swinburne through the work of thomas hardy and john berryman, re-examining the role of eurydice, and the feminine more generally, in poetic production. zeiger then considers women poets who challenge the assumptions of elegies written by men, sometimes identifying themselves with eurydice. among these poets are h.d., edna st. vincent millay, anne sexton, and elizabeth bishop. zeiger concludes with a discussion of elegies for victims of current plagues, explaining how poets mourning those lost to aids and breast cancer rewrite elegy in ways less repressive, sacrificial, or punitive than those of the orphean tradition. among the poets discussed are essex hemphill, thom gunn, mark doty, audre lorde, adrienne rich, and marilyn hacker.

Description : Read Now The Female Suffering Body by Abir Hamdar and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. although there is a history of rich, complex, and variegated representations of female illness in western literature over the last two centuries, the sick female body has traditionally remained outside the arab literary imagination. hamdar takes on this historical absence in the female suffering body by exploring how both literary and cultural perspectives on female physical illness and disability in the arab world have transformed in the modern period. in doing so, she examines a range of both canonical and hitherto marginalized arab writers, including mahmoud taymur, yusuf al-sibai, ghassan kanafani, naguib mahfouz, ziyad qassim, colette khoury, hanan al-shaykh, alia mamdouh, salwa bakr, hassan daoud, and betool khedair. hamdar finds that, over the course of sixty years, female physical illness and disability has moved from the margins of arabic literature—where it was largely the subject of shame, disgust, or revulsion—to the center, as a new wave of female writers have sought to give voice to the "female suffering body."

Description : Read Now European East Asian Borders In Translation by Joyce C.H. Liu and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. european-east asian borders is an international, trans-disciplinary volume that breaks new ground in the study of borders and bordering practices in global politics. it explores the insights and limitations of border theory developed primarily in the european context to a range of historical and contemporary border-related issues and phenomena in east asia. the essays presented here question, rather than assume, the various borders between inclusion/exclusion, here/there, us/them, that condition the (im)possibility of translating between histories, cultures and identities. contributors suggest that the act of translation offers new ways of thinking about how border logics operate, taking on the concept of translation itself as border problematic and therefore raising questions of power and authority, such as who gets to act as a translator, or who benefits from the outcome. the book will appeal not only to upper-level students and scholars with a geopolitical-historical interest in east asia, but also to those who work in the inter-disciplinary field of border studies and others with an interest more generally in translation and the extent to which theory ‘travels’ across time and space.

Description : Read Now Borders And Borderlands In Contemporary Culture by Aoileann Ní Éigeartaigh and you can download with pub, pdf, txt, doc, and more file format with free account. it is entirely appropriate that this book should be produced in dundalk. located on the northern rim of the irish pale, this town has straddled a border for centuries. over the past thirty years, it has come to be closely identified with violent republicanism both by the unionist community in northern ireland and by constitutional nationalists in the south. against such a hostile background academics attached to the institute of technology there have bravely confronted and interrogated these processes which have so blighted the history not only of dundalk but of places and spaces throughout the world similarly located. in a wide-ranging series of articles, perhaps the strongest message to emerge is that of border as limitation. the notion of border as a liminal space where worlds converge, new realities emerge and transcendence is possible rarely surfaces. instead, the border as a physical manifestation of divisiveness is repeatedly explored. in a passionate statement of solidarity with the palestinians, lavalette describes the construction of the apartheid wall: “the wall is eight feet high and has a watchtower every three hundred metres. although there are no maps, it is thought it could end up being close to one thousand kilometres in length by the time it is completed” (p. 18). yndigegn shows how spatial borders gradually become mental borders such that, as visual borders disappear, new invisible borders appear (p. 33). the article explores the dualism of borders—simultaneously protecting those inside from external threats while also preventing those inside from reaching or engaging with the outside world. ni eigeartaigh takes up the duality theme in the exploration of individualism as a process either of liberation or one of alienation. taking the title from an aphorism of kafka’s “my prison cell, my fortress”, she explores a view of contemporary society as repressive, and of its inhabitants as complicit in the repression. drawing on a wide span of literature and disciplines, she teases through the paradox of contemporary society that the freedom gained from the liberation of the individual from communal obligations and repression has resulted in a loss of identity and an overwhelming sense of isolation and powerlessness. she concludes that in the “absence of a restrictive system of social control, the individual is forced to take responsibility for his own actions….it is to avoid this responsibility that many…choose the security of the prison cell above the hardship of the outside world.” her paper does not go on to look at the potential role of the state or of fundamentalist movements in playing on the fear and disconnectedness of the citizenry as an equally likely outcome to that of a stronger capability for personal responsibility. one could argue for instance that the euoropean fascist movement and the nationalist movement of the early- to mid-twentieth century were both based precisely on the dislocation at personal and social level resulting from the breakdown of pre-industrial communitarian ties. while there is no attempt in the book to elucidate any particular developmental relationship between the different contributors, two broad themes may be detected—a concern with borders as socio-political and geographical constructs on the one hand and a concern with the formation of identity in the individual’s relationship to the wider society on the other. some light is cast on the latter issue by de gregorio-godeo who posits discourse as a core concept in identity formation. this leads to the conclusion that individual identity, in this case individualism, is in fact socially constructed in a “dialectical interplay between the discursive and the social identities included—so that they are mutually shaped by each other” (p.93). using critical discourse analysis, he goes on to explore changing notions of masculinity as evidenced in the health sections of men’s magazines.
