Seeking a country : literary autobiographies of twentieth-century Irishwomen by Taura S Napier( Book )

3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although there are numerous published studies of Irish literature, and several of women's autobiography, none has combined these areas of study. Literary autobiographies of both women and men have gained popularity and scholarly attention over the last three decades, especially twentieth-century women's autobiography." "This study identifies and examines Irishwomen's literary autobiography and traces its development through the twentieth century. The opening chapter discusses autobiographical trends prior to the present century in Ireland, and charts major movements informing women's autobiography of the twentieth century. Of particular importance are the ways in which the life stories of Irish women writers both affirm and contradict intercultural theories of women's autobiography, how these writers manifest their autobiographical "I" as a deflected entity, and the relevance of class and religious background to the autobiographical voices of women in Ireland." "The core discussion of the study focuses on the self-narratives of Lady Augusta Gregory, Katharine Tynan, Mary Colum, Elizabeth Bowen, Kate O'Brien, and Eavan Boland."--Jacket

Our space, our place : women in the worlds of science fiction television by Sherry Ginn( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"In Our Space, Our Place: Women in the Worlds of Science Fiction Television, author Sherry Ginn explores the portrayals of female characters in popular Sci Fi television programs. The programs examined include The X-Files, Babylon 5, Farscape, Gene Roddenberry's Andromeda, and all five Star Treks. The major female characters on each program are discussed with respect to their quest to establish a sense of identity within their particular universe, as depicted on their series. By using current psychological and feminist theories, Ginn evaluates each character in terms that best exemplify the search for meaning and identity in women's lives."--BOOK JACKET
