Modernist short fiction by women the liminal in Katherine Mansfield, Dorothy Richardson, May Sinclair and Virginia Woolf by Claire Drewery( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 865 libraries worldwide
Exploring the short story's relationship to literary Modernism, Claire Drewery considers works by Katherine Mansfield, Dorothy Richardson, May Sinclair, and Virginia Woolf. Drewery argues that the short story is preoccupied with transgressing boundaries, and thus is an ideal genre for examining the Modernist fascination with the liminal. Drewery shows how these writers contribute significantly to the Modernist aesthetic that interrogates identity, the construction of the self, and the relationship between the individual and society
Twentieth-century Chaucer criticism : reading audiences by Kathy Cawsey( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 831 libraries worldwide
Cawsey draws on Michel Foucault's concept of the 'author-function' to propose the idea of an 'audience function' which shows the ways critics' concepts of audience affect and condition their criticism. Focusing on six trend-setting Chaucerian scholars, Cawsey identifies the assumptions about Chaucer's audience underpinning each critic's work. In making sense of the confusing and conflicting mass of modern Chaucer criticism, Cawsey provides insights into the development of twentieth-century literary criticism and theory
Theorizing sexuality by Stevi Jackson( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 814 libraries worldwide
"This book surveys and evaluates the sociological contribution to the study of sexuality. It not only maps major theoretical shifts and debates, but also offers a unique examination of the topic that emphasises the sociality of sexuality. In particular, it considers the institutional, biographical and interactional contexts of our sexual lives as well as the cultural significance and everyday practice of sexuality." "The authors contest not only popular understandings of sexuality as natural, but also psychoanalytic explanations and forms of analysis that privilege the cultural construction of sexuality over its everyday social accomplishment. In particular, they challenge the 'specialness' of sexuality within contemporary culture, arguing that sexuality is better understood as a routine part of everyday social life." "The book confronts the anxieties associated with sexuality in the late modern, western world and engages with wider debates on social transformations in late modernity. As such, it provides both an overview of the field of sexuality as well as setting a new agenda for debating the topic"--Jacket

Debunking economics : the naked emperor dethroned? by Steve Keen( file )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 74 libraries worldwide
"Debunking Economics exposes what many non-economists may have suspected and a minority of economists have long known: that economic theory is not only unpalatable, but also plain wrong. When the original Debunking was published back in 2001, the market economy seemed invincible, and conventional 'neoclassical' economic theory basked in the limelight. Steve Keen argued that economists deserved none of the credit for the economy's performance, and that 'the false confidence it has engendered in the stability of the market economy has encouraged policy-makers to dismantle some of the institutions which initially evolved to try to keep its instability within limits'. That instability exploded with the devastating financial crisis of 2007, and now haunts the global economy with the prospect of another Depression. In this radically updated and greatly expanded new edition, Keen builds on his scathing critique of conventional economic theory whilst explaining what mainstream economists cannot: why the crisis occurred, why it is proving to be intractable, and what needs to be done to end it. Essential for anyone who has ever doubted the advice or reasoning of economists, Debunking Economics provides a signpost to a better future."--Publisher's website
