11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,212 libraries worldwide
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. Raising Your Kids Right dispels lingering societal attitudes that narratives for young readers are unworthy of serious political study by examining a variety of texts that offer information, ideology, and even instructions on how to raise kids right, not just figuratively but politically
Tomboys : a literary and cultural history by Michelle Ann Abate( Book )
10 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 814 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"--Book jacket

Global perspectives on Tarzan : from king of the jungle to international icon by Annette Wannamaker( Book )
7 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 160 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

Oversight as Insight: Reading <em>The Second Shepherd's Play</em> ( file )
1 edition published in 2005 in Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
With its Latin title Secunda Pastorum, this Corpus Christi pageant is correctly translated as The Second Shepherds’ Play. Numerous indexes and critical essays, however, contain a bibliographic disjunction: these listings misplace the apostrophe and record the text as The Second Shepherd’s Play. Rather than politely ignoring this common translation error as previous scholarship has done, this essay takes the somewhat unusual stance of embracing it. A close examination of Secunda Pastorum reveals that the second shepherd announces central events and recurring themes within the play. Foretelling such key elements as the stealing of the sheep, the grotesque nature of Mak’s wife, and the comic blending of the pious and the parodic, Gyb’s remarks constitute an important point of entry for understanding the pageant. As the misplaced apostrophe suggests, this common bibliographic mistake or oversight may actually provide a new critical insight

Tom/boys : the racialization of white tomboys in American women's fiction, 1840-1950 by Michelle Ann Abate( Book )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
After tracing a trajectory of racialized white tomboys in fiction by late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century American women, the epilogue explores the continued life of this phenomenon in lesbian pulp fiction and, later, popular film. The final segment argues that as changing social circumstances in the 1950s and 1960s made it unacceptable for mainstream literature to racialize white characters in overt ways, these images went underground to more subversive forms. Through the work of classic lesbian pulp novelists such as Ann Bannon and popular tomboy stars such as Tatum O'Neal, white tomboys continued to "fade to black."
