Foreign Parts offers a case study in Anglo-German relations in the theatre. How British was the British theatre during and after the Second World War? This book tells the unique story of five German-speaking actors who, after arriving as refugees from Nazi Germany, made the transition to the British stage in a period of heightened nationalism before and during World War II. While the emotional intensity of their performances won the applause of audiences and the approval of critics, their success also depended on the support of British theatre personalities - from Alec Clunes and Tyrone Guthrie to actors Sybil Thorndike and John Gielgud. The book also recounts their role in British propaganda broadcasts to Germany, including Martin Miller's satirical impersonation of his fellow-Austrian Adolf Hitler and Lucie Mannheim's anti-Nazi version of the popular hit 'Lilli Marlene'.Richard Dove is Emeritus Professor of German at the University of Greenwich and the author of various books on German-speaking exile in Britain.

Jennifer Douglas Like a Natural Woman Constructing Gender from Performance to Performativity

8114 руб.
In this work, I promote a dialogue between Drama and Performance Studies concerning the performance of gender in everyday life and on the stage. While Judith Butler and others have argued that the performativity of gender must be examined outside of theatre, I argue that theatre can provide us with a unique lens through which to examine aspects of gender that can be overlooked in everyday life. The plays and performance art I have chosen highlight different modes of performing gender through representations of the female body, which introduce the tension between the discursively produced body and the lived, phenomenological body onstage. By exploring this tension, I argue that the performativity of gender onstage arises from a combination of words, the presentation of tangible bodies, and the audience's response to the stage action. I bring together iconic playwright Samuel Beckett with Cuban-American performance artist Ana Mendieta and Irish playwright Marina Carr in order to represent different modes of performance. This study should prove useful for scholars in theatre, performance studies, and gender studies, who are interested in examining gender in a theatrical context.

Scholars studying the effect of World War II on gender roles tend to divide themselves between two interpretations of the postwar era. One group, championed by scholars such as Elaine Tyler May, see the 1950s as a time of homogeneity and a return to traditional gender roles. The other group, championed by Joanne Meyerowitz, sees the postwar era as a time of transformation, in which women gained more freedom and agency. Both groups, however, look at non-domestic employment as the signifier of feminine agency. This work seeks to formulate a more expansive interpretation of WWII’s effect on female experience by examining sexual ideals in addition to gender ideals. By comparing prewar and postwar articles from the Saturday Evening Post, similarities and differences between the decades reveal a far more complex story. With society craving security and sex, the intertwined notions of marriage, sex, and domesticity created a demand for female domesticity unmatched in the 20th century.

At a time when our culture desperately needs models of sexual wholeness and holy relationships, the Christian community is torn by division over issues of gender roles and sexuality. In this book several Christian scholars approach the topic of gender and sexuality using various disciplinary approaches. Readers can expect to be challenged to think more Christianly about gender issues, with a fuller understanding of the significance of these issues to our witness to the larger culture.

This book is a study of theatre's educational role during the 20th and the first years of the 21st centuries. It examines the variety of ways the theatre's educational potential has been harnessed and theorised, the claims made for its value and the tension bettween theatre as education and theatre as 'art': between theatre's aesthetic dimenstion and the 'utilitarian' or 'instrumental' role for which it has so often been pressed into service.Following a preliminary discussion of some key theoretical approaches to aesthetics, dramatic art and learning and, above all, the relationships between them, the study is organised into two broad chronological periods: early developments in European and American theatre up to the end of World War II, and participatory theatre and education since World War II. Within each period, a cluster of key themes is introduced and then re-visited and examined through a number of specific examples - seen within their cultural contexts - in subsequent chapters. Topics covered include an early use of theatre to campaign for prison reform; workers' theatre, agit-prop and American living newspapers in the 1930s; theatre's response to the dropping of the atom bomb in 1945; post-war theatre in education; theatre in prisons; and the use of performance in historic sites.

Patrick Nyaga Legal Social Challenges Facing Same Sex-Sexuality in Kenya

2850 руб.
Like many other jurisprudences in Africa, Kenya has had no space for same-sex sexuality. Our legal system has criminalized such activities and promised sanctions to participants. However, same-sex sexuality is no longer a tale, but a reality. Most of the Kenyan youths know of a party to these unions; but for religious; political and cultural reasons their voice is heard from far. This work tries to examine how in a pluralistic democracy should we craft and interpret the law. The author borrows from the south African constitution by way of comparative jurisprudence and tries to relate with the situation in Uganda. Reasons for/against same sex unions have been discussed and given the way forward. The Author is not gay and does not discriminate on their rights.

This book explores the experiences of a range of women from the early days of 1914, through the big events of the war on the Eastern Front. Their diaries, letters, memoirs and journalism are used to investigate the extraordinary role played by British women during the fall of Serbia, the Russian Revolution and the final push, and their role in reconstruction following the Armistice. These women, and their writings, are examined through the multiple lenses of gender, nationality, patriotism, imperialism and legacy, but the book also tells the stories of individuals, and will appeal across audiences to students, researchers and general readers. This is the first book to examine the war in the East through the eyes of British women and as such makes an important contribution to First World War Studies.

Phillips Kim M. Sex Before Sexuality. A Premodern History

5539.88 руб.
Sexuality in modern western culture is central to identity but the tendency to define by sexuality does not apply to the premodern past. Before the 'invention' of sexuality, erotic acts and desires were comprehended as species of sin, expressions of idealised love, courtship, and marriage, or components of intimacies between men or women, not as outworkings of an innermost self. With a focus on c. 1100–c. 1800, this book explores the shifting meanings, languages, and practices of western sex. It is the first study to combine the medieval and early modern to rethink this time of sex before sexuality, where same-sex and opposite-sex desire and eroticism bore but faint traces of what moderns came to call heterosexuality, homosexuality, lesbianism, and pornography. This volume aims to contribute to contemporary historical theory through paying attention to the particularity of premodern sexual cultures. Phillips and Reay argue that students of premodern sex will be blocked in their understanding if they use terms and concepts applicable to sexuality since the late nineteenth century, and modern commentators will never know their subject without a deeper comprehension of sex's history.

1739.83 руб.
A new way for Christians to think about sexuality Author Miguel De La Torre, a well-respected ethicist and professor known for his innovative readings of Christian doctrine, rejects both the liberal and conservative prejudices about sex. He instead develops an ethic that is liberative yet grounded soundly in the Bible; a sexuality that celebrates God’s gift of great sex by fostering intimacy, vulnerability and openness between loving partners. In A Lily Among the Thorns, De La Torre examines the Bible, current events, history and our culture-at-large to show how and why racism, sexism, and classism have distorted Christianity’s central teachings about sexuality. The author shows how the church’s traditionally negative attitudes toward sex in general—and toward women, people of color, and gays in particular—have made it difficult, if not impossible, to create a biblically based and just sexual ethic. But when the Bible is read from the viewpoint of those who have been marginalized in our society, preconceived notions about Christianity and sex get turned on their heads. Taking on hot-button topics such as pornography, homosexuality, prostitution, and celibacy, the author examines how “reading from the margins” provides a liberating approach to dealing with issues of sexuality.

The essays in Family, Gender, and Law in Early Modern France explore how ordinary men and women negotiated power within early modern French households and continually reinvented their families in response to external forces. Larger processes, such as state building, religious reform, changing understandings of gender roles, and economic developments, influenced family practices in the areas of marriage, separation, guardianship, and illegitimacy. Relatives, gender, community, and the law imposed limits upon families but also provided opportunities for agency. Contributors investigate patterns of courtship and decisions about marriage; the financial power exercised by wives; marital conflict and related controversies about gender, sexuality, and social order; death and guardianship; and the legitimization of children born out of wedlock. While addressing a variety of topics, this volume focuses on family members as individuals with complicated agendas and strategies of their own.

Seminar paper from the year 2007 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 1,3, University of Mannheim, language: English, abstract: It is widely accepted that John Osborne's play Look Back in Anger was a turning-point in the history of British theatre, a milestone introducing the era of the New British Drama. Osborne remembers: "On 8 May 1956 [...] Look Back in Anger had its opening at the Royal Court Theatre. This [...] particular date seems to have become fixed in the memories of theatrical historians" and Lacey emphasises: "The moment of John Osborne's Look Back in Anger [...] was undoubtedly a symbolic one in the history of post-war British theatre and of post-war culture generally." However, Look Back in Anger was not perceived as a break-through right from the beginning. Rather, Osborne had to cope with shattering criticism and at first, his play was a crushing defeat. Osborne himself summarized the reactions towards Look Back in Anger in his autobiography about thirty years later: "There was a vehement, undisputed judgement: the play was a palpable miss." Nearly all reviews focused on the play's hero Jimmy Porter, whose nature they depicted as the reason for the "essential wrongness" of the play. Jimmy was seen as "a bitter young misfit," "a boor, self-pitying, self-dramatising rebel" and a "cynical, neurotic [young man] of working-class stock," whose "continuous ...

Mythologies and narratives of victimization pervade contemporary Croatia, set against the backdrop of militarized notions of masculinity and the political mobilization of religion and nationhood. Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork in rural Dalmatia in the Croatian-Bosnian border region, this book provides a unique account of the politics of ambiguous Europeanness from the perspective of those living at Europe’s margins. Examining phenomena such as Marian apparitions, a historic knights tournament, the symbolic re-signification of a massacre site, and the desolate social situation of Croatian war veterans, Narrating Victimhood traces the complex mechanisms of political radicalization in a post-war scenario. This book provides a new perspective for understanding the ongoing processes of transformation in Southeastern Europe and the Balkans.

G. Lloyd Rediger Beyond the Scandals. A Guide to Healthy Sexuality for Clergy

3064 руб.
Recent sexual scandals have rocked the North American religious scene and left the churches concerned about credibility and liability. What are the bounds of clergy sexuality? What constitutes misconduct, and what legal, moral, and religious norms apply? More broadly, what has gone wrong, and how can clergy understand their own sexuality and their lives of service? Lloyd Rediger is a uniquely qualified national expert on all these questions with a strong message for clergy about their sexuality, spirituality, and behavior. In this timely volume, which incorporates material from his earlier volume Ministry and Sexuality, Rediger brings his extensive research, clinical experience, and theological insights to bear on the topic. He offers a comprehensive, authoritative account of clergy sexuality and sexual ethics with up-to-date legal information; helpful research on ethnic, gender, and denominational factors; a religious and moral framework for understanding clergy sexuality; and analysis of the sexual problems encountered by clergy. (Learn more about Dr. Rediger at his website.) This volume could well become the standard pro-fessional resource for clergy in a new era of increased accountability and moral reflection.

3414 руб.
Metaphors and Climax explores the artistic forays of the late Ogonna Agu (Ph.D.), Nigerian writer, critic, actor, director, painter and Associate Professor of drama and theatre. In 19 exciting essays, this book captures the creative canvas of Agu as expressed in the genres of literary drama, performance and theatre criticism. Besides establishing the versatility of Agu as a virtuoso artist, the volume significantly interrogates the thematic preoccupations of his plays, their sociological values and the potentials and challenges of putting them on stage as performance texts. Issues such as the creative philosophy of Agu, the dramatic reflections of the Nigerian Civil War, the ideology of Biafra, the political economy of postcolonial Africa, love, gender and culture, and the ethical demands of peace and reconciliation demonstrate the broad canvas on which Agu's creative works are painted. The compendium is a good reference material for scholars, practitioners and students of African theatre, politics and culture.

Courtney Heard The Sex-Role Egalitarian Attitudes of African Americans

4914 руб.
The gender role socialization experiences of African Americans have been extensively documented. Many of these authors have made cross-cultural comparisons regarding the sex-role egalitarian attitudes of women and men, particularly, among African Americans and Caucasians. It has been asserted that African Americans exhibit greater flexibility in gender roles and express a higher degree of sex-role egalitarian attitudes versus some other ethnic groups. However, recent research has revealed results which counter the argument that African Americans exhibit a high degree of sex-role egalitarianism attitudes. This book provides detailed information on the sex-role egalitarianism attitudes of some middle-class African Americans, and the gender role socialization and life experiences that have contributed to these beliefs. The results shared in this book support and expand existing literature on themes relevant to understanding the gender role socialization experiences of some African Americans to include installation of religious values, diversity in roles assumed by African American women, and perceived ethnic cultural differences in the gender role socialization experience.

Antonia Caroline Lant Blackout. Reinventing Women for Wartime British Cinema

3689 руб.
The most universal civilian privation in World War II Britain, the blackout possessed many symbolic meanings. Among its complicated implications for filmmakers was a stigmatization of film spectacle--including the display of "Hollywood women," whose extravagant appearance connoted at best unpatriotic wastefulness and at worst collaboration with the enemy. Exploring the wartime breakdown of conventional gender roles on the screen and in the audience, Antonia Lant demonstrates that many British films of the period signaled their national cinematic identity by diverging from the notion of the Hollywood star, the mainstay of commercial American motion pictures, replacing her with a deglamourized, mobilized heroine. Nevertheless, the war machine demanded that British films continue to celebrate stable and reassuring gender roles. Contradictions abounded, both within film narratives and between narrative and "real life." Analyzing films of all the major wartime studios, the author scrutinizes the efforts of realist and melodramatic texts to confront women's wartime experiences, including conscription. By combining study of contemporary posters, advertisements, propaganda notices, and cartoons with consideration of recent feminist theoretical work on the cinema, spectatorship, and history, she has produced the first book to examine the relationships among gender, cinema, and nationality as they are affected by the stresses of war.Originally published in 1991.The ...

Children and Sexuality discusses the historical relationship between children and sexuality, and the changing views of child-adult relations in the sexual domain, in a series of case studies extending from the Greeks to the Great War. Chapters provide highly original interpretations of these cases that challenge the received views of children and sexuality, as well as traditional disciplinary conventions. While the book is firmly grounded in history and literature, biography and social custom, it also engages with current debates in literary and cultural history; as well as the new history and anthropology of childhood

Nancy Bauer A Companion to Simone de Beauvoir

15053.62 руб.
The work of Simone de Beauvoir has endured and flowered in the last two decades, thanks primarily to the lasting influence of The Second Sex on the rise of academic discussions of gender, sexuality, and old age. Now, in this new Companion dedicated to her life and writings, an international assembly of prominent scholars, essayists, and leading interpreters reflect upon the range of Beauvoir’s contribution to philosophy as one of the great authors, thinkers, and public intellectuals of the twentieth century. The Companion examines Beauvoir’s rich intellectual life from a variety of angles—including literary, historical, and anthropological perspectives—and situates her in relation to her forbears and contemporaries in the philosophical canon. Essays in each of four thematic sections reveal the breadth and acuity of her insight, from the significance of The Second Sex and her work on the metaphysics of gender to her plentiful contributions in ethics and political philosophy. Later chapters trace the relationship between Beauvoir’s philosophical and literary work and open up her scholarship to global issues, questions of race, and the legacy of colonialism and sexism. The volume concludes by considering her impact on contemporary feminist thought writ large, and features pioneering work from a new generation of Beauvoir scholars. Ambitious and unprecedented in scope, A Companion to Simone de Beauvoir is an accessible and interdisciplinary resource for students, teachers, and researchers across the humanities and social sciences.

Alain Badiou In Praise of Theatre

3457.82 руб.
In Praise of Theatre is Alain Badiou’s latest work on the ‘most complete of the arts,’ the theatrical stage. This book, certain to be of great interest to scholars and theatre practitioners alike, elaborates the theory of the theatre developed by Badiou in works such as Rhapsody for the Theatre and the ‘Theses on Theatre’ and enquires into the status of a theatre that would be adequate to our ‘contemporary, market-oriented chaos.’ In a departure from his usual emphasis upon canonical figures of the stage such as Bertolt Brecht and Samuel Beckett, Badiou devotes In Praise of Theatre largely to a consideration of contemporary practitioners, including Jan Fabre, Brigitte Jacques and Romeo Castellucci. In addition, the book features an incisive analysis of the precarious status of the theatre today, in which Badiou describes not only the current threats to the theatre from the right, but the far more insidious threat from the left.

Robert Valentine Dolbey The Bush War Doctor. The Experiences of a British Army Doctor During the East African Campaign of the First World War

2189 руб.
The East African Campaign through a British Army Doctor's eyesThe author of this book-a practicing doctor in the British Army-had already served on the Western Front in the early months of the Great War and had actually become a P. O. W. at the hands of the German enemy. Now in the East African Campaign he explains-in writings originally intended for his own family-every aspect of war in this little reported theatre. We learn about the movements of troops and battle actions, but also of the character of troops from many countries and of the African tribes who fought for each side. We hear of the trials of the motor transport men-dodging ambush and wild animals equally-and of the adventures of the "behind the lines" intelligence gatherers living thrilling and dangerous lives in the bush. Finally we are shown the difficulties of keeping men healthy and the problems of saving lives under the most arduous conditions. This is an unusual and interesting perspective on war from a medical man in Africa.

Rachel C. Lee The Americas of Asian American Literature. Gendered Fictions of Nation and Transnation

4539 руб.
Drawing on a wide array of literary, historical, and theoretical sources, Rachel Lee addresses current debates on the relationship among Asian American ethnic identity, national belonging, globalization, and gender. Lee argues that scholars have traditionally placed undue emphasis on ethnic-based political commitments--whether these are construed as national or global--in their readings of Asian American texts. This has constrained the intelligibility of stories that are focused less on ethnicity than on kinship, family dynamics, eroticism, and gender roles. In response, Lee makes a case for a reconceptualized Asian American criticism that centrally features gender and sexuality. Through a critical analysis of select literary texts--novels by Carlos Bulosan, Gish Jen, Jessica Hagedorn, and Karen Yamashita--Lee probes the specific ways in which some Asian American authors have steered around ethnic themes with alternative tales circulating around gender and sexual identity. Lee makes it clear that what has been missing from current debates has been an analysis of the complex ways in which gender mediates questions of both national belonging and international migration. From anti-miscegenation legislation in the early twentieth century to poststructuralist theories of language to Third World feminist theory to critical studies of global cultural and economic flows, The Americas of Asian American Literature takes up pressing cultural and literary questions and points to a new di...
