Book Summary:

In the nineteenth-century Pacific, the production of a text of encounter occurred in tandem with the production of a settled space; asserting settler presence through the control of the space and the context of the encounter. Indigenous resistance therefore took place through modes of representation that ‘unsettled’ the text. This book considers the work of four Western visitors to the Pacific—Robert Louis Stevenson, William Ellis, Herman Melville, and Jack London—and the consequences for the written text and the experience of cross-cultural encounter when encounter is reduced to writing. The study proposes a strong connection between settling and writing as assertions of presence, and, by engaging a metaphor of building dwellings and building texts, the study examines how each writer manipulates the process of text creation to assert a dominant presence over and against the indigenous presence, which is represented as threatening, and extra-textual.

Narratives Unsettled argues by way of close readings of three very different German-language writers that only if we conceive of narrativity unburdened by plot can we properly account for radical forms of digression.

Book Summary:

This collection stems from a recent conference at University of Calgary that included some of the most established names in the field of women's history in the US and Canada, as well as younger scholars, activists in the Aboriginal community and in farm women's organisations, volunteers in historical societies working to preserve women's voices, family and genealogical researchers, film-makers, a poet, a playwright and many others. Designed to generate writing and research about the West through women's eyes, the central goal of the conference was to spark dialogue across boundaries, whether geographic, cultural or disciplinary. The volume is divided into two parts: the first section discusses the role of women in history as community builders and cultural preservationists, and the second section is concerned with gender history in numerous disciplines such as history, education, nursing and communication studies. This collection highlights the extent to which Western and women's history remains a contested or unsettled terrain and argues that the greatest strength of historical analyses that take sex and gender into account is their ability to complicate and consequently transcend regional myths and frontier legacies that emerged out of imperial and masculine priorities and perspectives.

Book Summary:

Many states in the Asia Pacific region are not built around a single homogenous people, but rather include many large, varied, different national groups. This book explores how states in the region attempt to develop commonality and a nation and the difficulties that arise. It discusses the consequences which ensue when competing narratives clash, and examines the nature of resistance to dominant narratives which arise. It considers the problems in a wide range of countries in the region including Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Australia and New Zealand.

Book Summary:

Cultural fictions - texts written from the perspective of the edge - are the focus of this exciting and enlightening book. The author examines the formations of narratives of identity in contemporary 'borderline' fictions and films. The work of migrant and marginalised groups located at the boundaries of nations, cultures, classes, ethnicities, sexualities and genders, is explored through an intricate weaving of theory with textual analysis. Organised around the themes of memory, tradition and 'belonging', the book proposes the space of 'migrant' writing - an emerging third space - as one that challenges fixed assumptions about identity.The cross-cultural range - including texts from British, Caribbean, Chinese-American, Indo-Caribbean, Canadian, Cuban and Indian writers; the original discussion of authors such as Maxine Hong Kingston, Gloria Anzaldua, Amy Tan, Gish Jen, Hanif Kureishi and Chang-rae Lee; and engagement with the work of theorists including Bakhtin, Freud, Lyotard, de Certeau, Deleuze and Guattari, produces a significant contribution to the broadening definitions of ethnicity and the 'post-colonial'.Works explored include Jasmine, Borderlands, The Joy Luck Club, The Wedding Banquet, Dreaming in Cuban, My Year of Meat, Buddha of Suburbia and East is East. These contemporary texts and films will make this book accessible to a broad range of readers.

Book Summary:

Die Abendschule was a family journal published first in Buffalo and then in St. Louis between 1854 and 1940. Examining texts published in the journal during its first fifty years, Brent O. Peterson illuminates the function of popular narratives within a developing community of readers--German immigrants of the period. "The five chapters not only deal with historical facts and ethnicity issues in general and German in particular, but most eloquently depict the painful conflict of being 'German,' 'American,' and, simultaneously , 'Lutheran,' while also having to come to terms with the new notion of corporate capitalism vis--vis Old World ideals of farming and craftsmanship."--Choice
