Ambivalent Desires Book Description

by Angelika Köhler, Ambivalent Desires Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ambivalent Desires books, The study explores the phenomenon of the New Woman as a most controversial construct of turn-of-the-19th-century US-American culture. Images of the New Woman shaped the discourses of mainstream press as well as those of leading feminists of the time. Against the background of the processes of social modernization, the multifaceted versions of this female image are investigated as productions und reproductions of women's "ambivalent desires" to articulate their female awareness of modernity by rereading texts written by male and female so-called popular and canonical authors and by discussing selected contemporary discourses of journalism. The analysis sets out to explore the centrality of gender to the development of forms of modern US-American writing conceptualized as a network of diverse yet mutually interacting gendered discourses. Bisherige Forschungsschwerpunkte der Autorin: Turn-of-the 19th-century US-American Literature, multiethnic literatures of the US.

Ambivalent Desire Book Description

by Brett A. Berliner, Ambivalent Desire Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ambivalent Desire books, "Through an analysis of popular imagery, exotic fiction, travel writing, and other cultural texts, Berliner shows how the representation and reception of blacks in post-World War I France embodied competing, at times contradictory, perceptions. On the one hand, African and Caribbean blacks were depicted as a source of cultural renewal and a means for celebrating life and sexuality. On the other hand, interracial relationships were seen as a threat to French civilization, a notion reinforced by grotesque advertisements, ethnographic exhibitions, and other aesthetically repulsive images of "primitive" blacks."--BOOK JACKET.

Ambivalent Americanizations Book Description

by Sebastian M. Herrmann, Ambivalent Americanizations Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Ambivalent Americanizations books, This volume explores the 'Americanization' of Central and Eastern Europe during and after the Cold War. It seeks to revisit and expand this critical concept by investigating previously overlooked perspectives and new comparative constellations. The Iron Curtain has frequently been seen as a tightly sealed border between East and West. However, as the contributions to this collection illustrate, it proved remarkably permeable for American goods and lifestyles which generated and gratified a range of often ambivalent desires and fantasies. This book attends to the ensuing 'messiness' of cultural transfer and mixing, as well as to the role 'America' has played in these processes. In twelve case studies, a broad spectrum of disciplinary angles and diverse geo-biographical horizons come together to examine the elusive dynamics of ambivalent Americanizations in areas such as music, television, and material culture.
