The colonial Conan Doyle : British imperialism, Irish nationalism, and the gothic by Catherine Wynne( )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Arthur Conan Doyle is often perceived as the quintessential Englishman, patriotically devoted to the Crown and the empire's defender and apologist. But such a relegation is both limiting and simplistic. This book examines how British imperialism, Irish nationalism, and Catholic allegiance converge uneasily in his fictions. It places his works within a colonial context, the complexity of which is evident in his gothic tropes of shifting landscapes, disguised criminalities, spiritualism, and sexual anomalies and conflicts. In doing so, it challenges the prevailing view of Doyle as an imperial writer and underscores the importance of colonialism in his fiction
Bram Stoker, Dracula and the Victorian gothic stage by Catherine Wynne( Book )

12 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 328 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bram Stoker worked in the theatre for most of his adult life, as theatre reviewer in Dublin in the 1870s and as business manager at London's Royal Lyceum Theatre in the final two decades of the 19th century. Despite this, critical attention to the influence of the stage on Stoker's writing has been sparse. "Bram Stoker, Dracula and the Victorian Gothic Stage" addresses this lacuna, examining how Stoker's fictions respond to and engage with Victorian theatre's melodramatic climate and, in particular, to supernatural plays, Gothic melodramas and Shakespearean productions that Henry Irving and Ellen Terry performed at the Lyceum. "Bram Stoker, Dracula and the Victorian Gothic Stage" locates the writer between stage and page. It reconsiders his literary relationships with key actors, and challenges the biographical assumption that Henry Irving provided the model for the figure of Count Dracula

An analysis of institutional commitment and goal commitment at a community college by Catherine J Wynne( )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major focus of this research was an analysis of the structural and causal influences of institutional commitment and goal commitment on a two-year community college sample. The purpose was to confirm the established two-factor structure of institutional commitment (Nora and Cabrera, 1993) and the three-factor structure of goal commitment (Allen and Nora 1995) on a sample of students from a large, suburban, community college. The construct validity of institutional commitment and goal commitment has not been validated on a 2-year community college sample. A survey providing the 20 items representing the theoretical basis of the commitment constructs was administered to all first time students in the Fall 2001 semester. Student performance was tracked for four semesters. College initiated student dismissals were removed from the file. The resulting file provided student's initial levels of institutional and goal commitment, along with demographic and persistence data. This dissertation focused on the following questions: (1) Are the results of the confirmatory factor analysis of the institutional commitment construct, conducted on a 4-year institution by Nora and Cabrera (1993), generalizable to a 2-year community college sample? (2) Are the results of the confirmatory factor analysis of the goal commitment construct, conducted on a 4-year institution by Allen and Nora (1995), generalizable to a 2-year community college sample? (3) What are the effects of goal commitment and institutional commitment on persistence behavior in the presence of each other? (a) What are the effects of the commitment factors on short-term persistence? (b) What are the effects of the commitment factors on long-term persistence? (4) Do initial goal and institutional commitment levels affect persistence outcomes differently for male and female students? (5) Lastly, do results vary by campus?

The maternal gaze in the Gothic by Sara Williams( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This transdisciplinary thesis excavates the critically-neglected Gothic convention of the maternal tyrant through the theoretical framework of the maternal gaze, recently conceptualised by Alina Luna in Visual Perversity: A Re-articulation of the Maternal Instinct (2004). As a counter-response to the critical heritage of feminist and film scholarship which privileges the presence of an objectifying and fetishising male gaze, Luna argues that the maternal gaze issued from the womb is the most powerful and fatal because it is concerned with nothing apart from devouring the child and reinstalling it in the mother's body, and punishing the paternal order which had taken it away. Examining how the Gothic articulates intra-uterine symbols and structures, I consider a spectrum of written and visual texts to argue that an omnipotent maternal gaze is pathologically narrativised by the genre. The thesis is structured in three parts of two chapters each which plot the evolution of the maternal gaze in the Gothic. In Part One, 'The Gothic Heritage', I discuss maternal symbolism and structures in folkloric and Victorian Gothic texts to show how the infanticidal maternal gaze has existed in the genre since its inception, while Part Two, 'Gothic Practices', reveals how the maternal gaze in the late-nineteenth and early-twentieth centuries used the intersecting technological and religious practices of photography, Spiritualism and Marian iconography to Gothicise the domestic space of the maternal practitioner. Part Three comes home to 'The Gothic Domestic', which examines how narratives of child abuse, incest and trauma are perpetuated in the domestic space for the maternal gaze through modes of serialisation, and I conclude by showing how the internet has become the modern Gothic web in which the maternal gaze weaves hypertextual narratives through which mothers meditate on and reproduce the image of the abused and traumatised child. This thesis provides new directions for genre criticism and gaze theory, and drawing on feminist, film and psychoanalytic scholarship I use the maternal gaze to write a place for the maternal tyrant in the Gothic, one which she has previously been denied by the critical and cultural blindness to the capabilities of maternal desire
