The erotics of talk : women's writing and feminist paradigms by Carla Kaplan( Book )
20 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 571 libraries worldwide
"In this provocative rereading of the classic texts of the feminist literary canon, Carla Kaplan takes a hard look at the legacy of feminist criticism and argues that important features of feminism's own canon have been overlooked in the rush to rescue and identify. African-American women's texts, she demonstrates, often dramatize their distrust of their readers, their lack of faith in "the cultural conversation," through strategies of self-silencing and "self-talk." At the same time, she argues, the homoerotics of women's writing has too often gone unremarked. Not only does longing for an ideal listener draw women's texts into a romance with the reader, but there is an erotic excess which is part of feminist critical recuperation, itself." "Drawing on a wide range of resources, from sociolinguistics and anthropology to literary theory, Kaplan's highly readable study proposes a new model for understanding and representing "talk.""--Jacket

Miss Anne in Harlem : the white women of the Black Renaissance by Carla Kaplan( Sound Recording )
2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 13 libraries worldwide
Celebrated scholar Carla Kaplan's cultural biography, Miss Anne in Harlem: The White Women of the Black Renaissance, focuses on white women, collectively called "Miss Anne," who became Harlem Renaissance insiders. The 1920s in New York City was a time of freedom, experimentation, and passion--with Harlem at the epicenter. White men could go uptown to see jazz and modern dance, but women who embraced black culture too enthusiastically could be ostracized. Miss Anne in Harlem focuses on six of the unconventional, free-thinking women, some from Manhattan high society, many Jewish, who crossed race lines and defied social conventions to become a part of the culture and heartbeat of Harlem. Ethnic and gender studies professor Carla Kaplan brings the interracial history of the Harlem Renaissance to life with vivid prose and extensive research

Geographies of (in)justice : radical regionalism in the American Midwest, 1930-1950 by Brent Garrett Griffin( file )
1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
In the decades bracketing World War II, a group of Midwestern radical writers promoted a new form of radical literary expression--proletarian regionalism--both to counter burgeoning right-wing extremism in the United States and to renew a spirit of grass-roots democracy, egalitarianism and place-based working class action. For Meridel Le Sueur, Jack Conroy, Nelson Algren, and Mari Sandoz, four of the most regionally conscious and committed writers of the period and the focus of "Geographies of (In)Justice," proletarian regionalism was a vehicle for interpreting localized social, economic, and environmental injustices and for making connections between these places and larger-scale processes of capitalist accumulation. By tracing regional discourses through a broad range of forms, including social realism, little magazines, conference presentations, fictional autobiography, and political allegory, this recuperative literary history demonstrates that proletarian regionalism appropriated many forms in an attempt to interpret and represent an affective geography of capitalism and capture the socio-spatial experiences of people struggling to live and work in the region. Arguing that Midwestern proletarian regionalism presents a counter-narrative to the still-dominant view of regionalism as inherently conservative and backward looking, this dissertation continues work by scholars such as Michael C. Steiner, who have begun to recover a "woefully neglected tradition" of left-leaning regionalism, and puts this tradition in conversation with recent theories in cultural geography (3). Ultimately, "Geographies of (In)Justice" is an attempt to revise our understanding of these writers' contributions to radical literature and reinvigorate a Marxist analysis of regionalism as a form of social critique and cultural analysis. The central claim of this dissertation is that proletarian regionalism maps and interprets the complex geographies of capitalism and involves readers emotionally in the experiences of being situated within marginalized and often neglected places. By reading this body of literature alongside cultural geography, this research offers a better understanding of how regional writing can be understood as a vital representational strategy for imagining a broad geography of empathy and unity among socially responsible readers, and, as such, can be a force of progressive social action
