Highlighting the works of William Bennett, Lynne Cheney, Bill O & rsquo;Reilly, and others on the American political right, Michelle Ann Abate brings together such diverse fields as cultural studies, literary criticism, political science, childhood studies, brand marketing, and the cult of celebrity.

11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 818 libraries worldwide
"Starting with the figure of a bold, boisterous girl in the mid-nineteenth century and ending with the 'girl power' movement of the 1990s, Tomboys is the first full-length critical study of this gender-bending code of female conduct. Michelle Abate uncovers the origins, charts the trajectory, and traces the literary and cultural transformations that the concept of 'tomboy' has undergone in the United States. Tomboys also explores the gender and sexual dynamics of tomboyism and offers intriguing discussions of race and ethnicity's role in the construction of the enduring cultural archetype"--Jacket

Global perspectives on Tarzan : from king of the jungle to international icon by Annette Wannamaker( Book )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 189 libraries worldwide
This collection seeks to understand the long-lasting and global appeal of Tarzan: Why is a story about a feral boy, who is raised by apes in the African jungle, so compelling and so adaptable to different cultural contexts and audiences? How is it that the same narrative serves as the basis for both children's cartoons and lavish musical productions or as a vehicle for both nationalistic discourse and for light romantic fantasy? Considering a history of criticism that highlights the imperialistic, sexist, racist underpinnings of the original Tarzan narrative, why would this character and story

Tom/boys : the racialization of white tomboys in American women's fiction, 1840-1950 by Michelle Ann Abate( Archival Material )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Beginning with the observation that both syllables of the term "tomboy" evoke common racial pejoratives, the project investigates tomboy characters in general and the way in which they are often racialized in the fiction by late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century American women's in particular. After providing an overview of both racialization and tomboyism in American literature and culture, the study spotlights the convergence of these elements in the work of six women writers: E. D. E. N. Southworth, Louisa May Alcott, Sarah Orne Jewett, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Willa Cather, and Carson McCullers. Probing the possible reasons why ostensibly Caucasian tomboys acquire a dark hue in these novels, each chapter draws on an abundance of social and cultural phenomena as possible sites of intersection. Discussing such varied elements as blackface minstrelsy and girls' doll culture, the study explores the ways in which tomboyishness and blackness mutually construct or at least reinforce each other
