Nineteenth-century women's writing in Wales : nation, gender and identity by Jane Aaron( )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 1,621 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Nineteenth-Century Women's Writing in Wales: Nation, Gender and Identity introduces readers to a hundred Welsh women authors at work during the years 1780-1900, some writing in Welsh and some in English. In so doing, it rescues many of these authors from critical neglect and oblivion. In the second half of the nineteenth century in particular, Welsh women writers in both languages were numerous and enjoyed a degree of influence on Welsh culture easily commensurate with that of women writers today." "By covering the nineteenth century chronologically, this book traces the coming into being of the Welsh nation as its women in particular saw it, and as they helped to create it."--book jacket
Gendering border studies by Henrice Altink( )

10 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,490 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study of borders has recently undergone significant transitions, reflecting the transformation of the world political map as well as the changes in the ways boundaries themselves function. In Gendering Border Studies sixteen established scholars from a variety of disciplines examine how the issue of gender and borders has been approached in their field and describe what they expect from future research. This book will be of interest to scholars of border studies, gender studies, social anthropology, international politics, comparative literature, and Welsh studies
Postcolonial Wales by Chris Williams( )

8 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,304 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume explores aspects of the contemporary cultural and political life of Wales from perspectives coloured to a greater or lesser extent by that body of current criticism and theory labelled 'postcolonialism'. Structured in three parts, the first political and socio-historical, the second more concerned with contemporary Wales and the impact of devolution and the third dealing with Welsh culture, it exemplifies very diverse responses to the issue of postcoloniality and its relation to Wales. The volume's fourteen contributors consider such questions as: to what extent can Wales be said to be postcolonial in the sense of having accepted that it consists of plural cultures and identities? To what degree is it pertinent to think of Welsh policymakers as previously affected by 'mental colonization'? In what ways, if any, has the establishment of a Welsh Assembly affected language and gender issues in post-devolution Wales? And are there identifiable postcolonial currents in Welsh literature, stage, film and television drama, the visual arts and popular music? The collection does not aim to produce a blueprint for the application of postcolonial theory to Wales, but rather to stimulate ideas and suggest further avenues for investigation."--BOOK JACKET
Our sisters' land : the changing identities of women in Wales by Jane Aaron( )

9 editions published between 1994 and 2004 in English and held by 1,181 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Women's lives in Wales are changing dramatically. Transformations in the family, in the workplace, in culture and in politics are all contributing to the forging of new identities. Yet the major public images of Wales remain fixed in the past, male constructions of a masculine Wales. The richly diversified pattern of Welsh women's experience is still largely unrecorded and unexplored. Through a combination of researched essays and personal statements, this book aims to counter that neglect. Its contributors examine women in the home and in education, training and paid work, in rural and urban life, in English-speaking and Welsh-speaking contexts, in agriculture and in politics, in religion and the arts, in schools and in old age

Iron and gold by Hilda Vaughan( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"So a dying woman addresses her supernatural daughter-in-law. For this is the old folk tale of the Lady of Llyn y Fan Fach, the fairy bride lured from her underwater home to become a farmer's wife on the Brecon Beacons. Iron and Gold's retelling of the myth makes of it a psychological study in the nature of marriage and the social construction of gender roles. As the bride struggles to adapt herself, and sees her gold worn away under the iron pressure of conformity, both her difference and her acquired familiarity eventually breed marital breakdown and tragedy. But the human yearning for strange beauty, disruptive though it may be, remains poignantly alive throughout the novel."--BOOK JACKET
