Originality, imitation, and plagiarism : teaching writing in the digital age by Caroline Eisner( Book )
11 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 673 libraries worldwide
This collection is a timely intervention in national debates about what constitutes original or plagiarized writing in the digital age. Somewhat ironically, the Internet makes it both easier to copy and easier to detect copying. The essays in this volume explore the complex issues of originality, imitation, and plagiarism, particularly as they concern students, scholars, professional writers, and readers, while also addressing a range of related issues, including copyright conventions and the ownership of original work, the appropriate dissemination of innovative ideas, and the authority and role of the writer/author. Throughout these essays, the contributors grapple with their desire to encourage and maintain free access to copyrighted material for noncommercial purposes while also respecting the reasonable desires of authors to maintain control over their own work

'Intimate Friends' offers a study of the erotic friendships of educated English and American women in the century and a half up to the publication of Radclyffe Hall's novel 'The Well of Loneliness'. Vicinus also considers the roots of social phenomena such as homosexual self-hatred and female masculinity
Lesbian subjects : a feminist studies reader by Martha Vicinus( Book )
7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 377 libraries worldwide
The growth in cultural studies has brought homosexuality to the center of work on gender and sexuality. The lesbian is now an accepted subject for scrutiny - she exists, but how do we define her history, when did it begin, and whom do we include? Lesbian Subjects gathers essays - primarily from feminist studies between 1980 and 1993 - and traces lesbian studies from its beginnings, examining the difficulties of defining a lesbian perspective and a lesbian past - a culture, social milieux, and states of mind. Essays range from studies of such well-known figures as the Harlem renaissance poet Alice Dunbar-Nelson, to studies of specific historical moments, such as the regulation of sexuality in the Women's Army Corps during World War II. Other essays treat well-known authors such as Virginia Woolf and Gertrude Stein, lesser-known writers from the early nineteenth century to the present, postmodern definitions of the lesbian, "Queer Theory," and lesbian invisibility

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Dr. Vicinus begins her lecture by discussing what 19th century doctors or sexologists wrote about sexually and deviant behavior in scientific terms. They described the characteristics of the effeminate man and the masculine female. These doctors wanted a clear definition of sex roles. Dr. Vicinus cites Havelock Ellis' description of a homosexual and contrasts it with the writings of Edward Carpenter's, a homosexual himself. Then Dr. Vicinus goes into an extended discussion of Radclyffe Hall's Well of Loneliness. Dr. Vicinus uses slides to illustrate her lecture. There was a question and answer session after the lecture

Suffer and Be Still (Routledge Revivals): Women in the Victorian Age by Martha Vicinus( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 1 library worldwide
First published in 1972, this book contains a collection of ten essays that document the feminine stereotypes that women fought against, and only partially erased, a hundred years ago. In an introductory essay, Martha Vicinus describes the perfect Victorian lady, showing that the ideal was a combination of sexual innocence, conspicuous consumption and worship of the family hearth. Indeed, this model in some form was the ideal of all classes as the perfect lady's only functions were marriage and procreation. The text offers a valuable insight into Victorian culture and society
