Inquiry and Reflection
Inquiry and Reflection (April 1994)
Framing Narrative Practice in Education
Diane DuBose Brunner - Author

Inquiry and Reflection shows how stories of schooling can elucidate difficult, and unexamined problems facing teachers. While professional texts tend to raise issues of power and its distribution and questions of culture and ideology, often the manner of presentation is abstract, and pre-service teachers have difficulty making connections. Yet literary, film, and video materials illuminate problems and suggest ideas to which teachers can act...(Read More)

A Community of One (August 1993)
Masculine Autobiography and Autonomy in Nineteenth-Century Britain
Martin A. Danahay - Author

Complementing recent feminist studies of female self-representation, this book examines the dynamics of masculine self-representation in nineteenth-century British literature. Arguing that the category "autobiography" was a product of nineteenth-century individualism, the author analyzes the dependence of the nineteenth-century masculine subject on autonomy or self-naming as the prerequisite for the composition of a life history. The masculine aut...(Read More)

The Restorationist: Text One (August 1993)
A Collaborative Fiction by Jael B. Juba
Joyce Elbrecht - Author
Lydia Fakundiny - Author

This is an American novel of formed chaos playfully enacting the centrality of language in late twentieth-century art and life through the voices of two women steeped in Western traditions, one telling the story of her restoration of an ante-bellum house on the Florida Gulf Coast, the other faithfully recording it but running culturally wild in the process.

In both literal and extended senses, The Restorationist is a mystery, with atte...(Read More)
 
 
Anxious Power
Anxious Power (July 1993)
Reading, Writing, and Ambivalence in Narrative by Women
Carol J. Singley - Editor
Susan Elizabeth Sweeney - Editor

This book explains the conflicting feelings of anxiety and empowerment that women, historically excluded from masculine discourse, feel when they read and write, and it analyzes narrative strategies that reveal this ambivalence.

Anxious Power draws upon feminist literary theory, narrative theory, and reader-response criticism to define women's ambivalence toward language. It is the first collection to address issues of ambivalence in ...(Read More)
 
 
The Dream and the Text
The Dream and the Text (July 1993)
Essays on Literature and Language
Carol Schreier Rupprecht - Editor

"The book offers wonderful and important commentary about the interface between dreams and texts of various sorts, about how they can inform each other, and about mutual shaping of dreams and culture." -- Johanna M. King, California State University, Chico

This book partakes of a long tradition of dream interpretation, but, at the same time, is unique in its cross-cultural and interdisciplinary methods and in its mix of theoretical and analyt...(Read More)
 
 
The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima
The Ethical Challenge of Auschwitz and Hiroshima (July 1993)
Apocalypse or Utopia?
Darrell J. Fasching - Author

This book addresses the problem of religion, ethics, and public policy in a global technological civilization. It attempts to do what narrative ethicists have said cannot be done--to construct a cross-cultural ethic of human dignity, human rights, and human liberation which respects the diversity of narrative traditions. It seeks to do this without succumbing to either ethical relativism or ethical absolutism.

The author confronts directly ...(Read More)
 
 
Body/Text in Julia Kristeva

Religion, Women, and Psychoanalysis
David Crownfield - Editor

Julia Kristeva works at a crucial intersection of contemporary disciplines: psychoanalysis, linguistics, semiotics, literary criticism, feminism, postmodern philosophy, and religious studies. This volume examines this rich body of work and the ways in which its interdisciplinary style gives insight into problems in understanding religion. Special attention is given to two related themes: the understanding of woman in relation to religion and the...(Read More)
 
 
Old Tales and New Truths
Old Tales and New Truths (February 1992)
Charting the Bright-Shadow World
James Roy King - Author

"I like the basic thesis--that traditional narratives can be used, rhetorically, by their tellers as conceptual blockbreakers rather than as reinforcers of what is. This point is very well, even enchantingly, made. King adds a new dimension and sophistication to the study of folk narratives cross culturally. -- Sabra J. Webber, The Ohio State University.

This guidebook to the Bright-Shadow World develops three closely related issues. The f...(Read More)
