This collection of new essays addresses a topic of established and expanding critical interest throughout the humanities. It demonstrates that genre matters in a manner not constrained by disciplinary boundaries and includes new work on Genre Theory and applications of thinking about genre from Aristotle to Derrida and beyond. The essays focus on economies of expectation and competency, genre as media form, recent developments in television broadcast genres, translation and genericity, the role played by genre in film publicity, gender and genre, genre in fiction, and the problematics of class
Abstract machines : Samuel Beckett and philosophy after Deleuze and Guattari by Garin Dowd( Book )
11 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 169 libraries worldwide
"What can philosophy bring to the reading of Beckett? Combining intertextual analysis with a 'schizoanalytic genealogy' derived from the authors of L'Anti-Oedipe, Garin Dowd's Abstract Machines: Samuel Beckett and Philosophy after Deleuze and Guattari offers an innovative response to this much debated question. The author focuses on zones of encounter and thresholds of engagement between Beckett's writing and a range of philosophers (among them Spinoza, Leibniz and Kant) and philosophical concepts. Becketts writing impacts in a variety of ways on Deleuze and Guattaris thought, and, in particular, resonates with Deleuze's contributions to the history of philosophy (in books such as Le Pli: Leibniz et le baroque), and his 'critical and clinical' approach to literature. Furthermore, the books co-written with Guattari, concerned as they are with the 'molecularization' of the discipline of philosophy in the name of 'thinking otherwise', reveal themselves in a new light when explored in conjunction with Becketts oeuvre. With its arresting perspectives on a wide range of Beckett's works, Abstract Machines will appeal to academics and postgraduate students interested in the philosophical aspects of his writing."--Jacket
Genre trajectories : identifying, mapping, projecting by Natalia Rulyova; Garin Dowd( Book )
2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 18 libraries worldwide
The overarching ambition of Genre Trajectories is to explore trends and developments in genre studies in the early 21st century. The volume seeks both to explore and to problematize genre and genre studies by exposing the field to new identifications, mappings and projections. A wide-ranging set of perspectives is engaged by the 12 authors of the volume to produce multi-faceted readings of a fascinating range of texts drawn from poetry, Holocaust fiction and film, contemporary Hollywood and European film, the New Italian Epic, contemporary photography and the selfie, melodrama, as well as to foster an understanding of the role of genre in teaching and learning. The book is designed to engage the reader in a conversation about genre in relation to philosophy, memory, gender, new media, visuality, teaching and pedagogy
