  • Introduction: Garnering Diversities in Comparative Literature
    • Abstract: Diversity is a fundamental premise in the discipline of Comparative Literature, which is characterized by its emphasis on multilingualism, interdisciplinarity, transmedia, and transnational and transcultural thematic or stylistic convergences, paradoxically based on the assumption of linguistic and cultural divergence. The promotion of diversity in Comparative Literature can be traced to la littérature comparée in France in the eighteenth century, Goethe's Weltliteratur in the 1820s, Leo Spitzer and Erich Auerbach in Turkey in the early twentieth century, European intellectual refugees fleeing totalitarian regimes for North America in the mid-twentieth century, and the polarization of the Cold War era (Spivak ...

  • From Here to There: Diversity and Interdisciplinary in the Practice of
           Comparative Literature
    • Abstract: Diversity looms large as a formidable presence in contemporary social discourse. Within the span of a single generation, the concept has attained a position of uncommon standing in modern culture. Notwithstanding this prominence, however, a certain lingering sense of unease persists as to what, exactly, diversity is, and this despite the familiarity that comes of the concept's expansive normative and descriptive reach across a range of domains of social life. As a term, diversity shares a certain familial resemblance within a cluster of such related concepts as "multiculturalism," "transculturalism," "interculturalism," "métissage," "creolization," "cultural pluralism," "identity politics," and various others, all ...

  • Teaching Literatures in the Age of Digital Media
    • Abstract: The web and digital technology have revolutionized our lives in many ways. Probably the most important change in the last fifteen years is the ubiquitous use of the Internet, smartphones, and social media, which has enabled instantaneous sharing of information and images, and communication between people in different geographical locations. The rise of Web 2.0 and digital technology have enabled more and more ordinary people to participate in the creation and distribution of media (Turner). This digital technology, which has facilitated connections between family, friends, and organizations from near and far through social media, has led to different ways of reading texts such as e-readers and online access to ...

  • Art and Ideology in China's Postsocialist Stage Productions of A Doll's
           House
    • Abstract: Socialism in China involved a series of social and political experiments in which attempts were made to reinvent class structures, replace traditional cultures, and reengineer human relations. The methodology for these experiments was to test certain models, and if they worked, they would be used as prototypes for wider applications. Such a methodology was used in almost all fields of building a socialist society, including literature and art.Looking back at the history of China's socialist construction, historians and art critics have noted that the "eight model plays" created during the Cultural Revolution in 1967-76 were not the first attempts at such a construction. They were endorsed as "revolutionary models" ... Read More

  • The Veil as National Allegory: Cinema, Visual Arts, and the
           Epistemological Trope of Fabric
    • Abstract: For many decades, cinema has been the predominant modern medium for constructing national self-images, according to Ella Shohat and Robert Stam ("Introduction" 9). One may assign this role, by extension, to other types of audiovisual culture. Since the Iranian revolution, the trope of the (Islamic) veil, particularly in cinema and on TV, has been considered a national allegory defining Middle Eastern cultures. Shohat, Hamid Naficy, and Faegheh Shirazi, among other scholars, have critiqued discourses on the cinematic veil, which they view as either exoticizing or patronizing Middle Eastern women. This criticism can be extended to representations of the veil in visual arts and in popular culture. This article will ... Read More

  • Stalker: Art, communauté, migration (Marche, repas, récit)
    • Abstract: Ce dont je souhaiterais parler, à partir de l'exemple du groupe Stalker, peut se formuler de façon sommaire : quelle réponse la pratique artistique contemporaine peut-elle apporter à une situation de « crise migratoire »' Comment articuler art, migrant, société' Et je précise d'emblée : une pratique qui soit non seulement collective, c'est-à-dire une forme qui soit comme en relation d'analogie avec son objet de regard, mais également interventionniste. Que peut faire l'art « avec » les migrants' Comment lier pratique artistique et intervention civique' Comment faire valoir artistiquement, par le jeu des représentations et des dispositifs, que l'on peut être dans un lieu, sans pour autant être de (ou natif de) ce ...

  • Faces of the Self in Modern Chinese Literature
    • Abstract: Literature often serves as a mirror and a lamp, to borrow M.H. Abrams's terms, by reflecting social, cultural, moral, political and/or ideological changes in society on the one hand and suggesting new directions or possible ways forward for its readers on the other. A look at representations and explorations of the self in Chinese literature in the first half of the twentieth century shows not only those forces that shaped the formation of the modern Chinese self but also those tensions, anxieties, and aspirations that Chinese writers experienced in the construction of their new selves during the early days of the young republic. Examining representative literary works of this period reveals how the Chinese quest ... Read More

  • Ambiguous Agency: Commercial Surrogacy in Yi Shu's A Complicated Story and
           Its Film Adaptation
    • Abstract: Medical and reproductive technological advancement and the flourishing global capitalist market have enabled the development of commercial surrogacy, a practice in which women enter contracts to be inseminated with a designated sperm and deliver the resulting child to the prospective parents. Whether commercial surrogacy empowers or dehumanizes women has been controversial, because questions of bodily and emotional intimacy and reproductive autonomy are involved apart from the economic considerations. On the one hand, commercial surrogacy enables infertile women to break through the limitations of their family roles, while providing financial support for surrogate mothers to relieve their poverty. On the other ... Read More

  • Tropical Escapes: Canadian Travellers, Latin America, and Sex
    • Abstract: "What have I been proudest of my life' That I have been, I believe, one of what the French term 'les libérateurs de l'amour.'"In his play Rose, Tomson Highway has a character state that one of the "basics" of contemporary Canadian life is "winter holidays in Mexico" (103) and, presumably, other tropical countries. Most Canadians who travel south do so in search of sun, sand, and that prized but elusive winter tan, and do not necessarily have much contact with the local people and their cultures. However, this is not the case for a significant number of travellers whose journeys are motivated by the pursuit of more carnal desires. Focusing on a series of texts, from short fiction to film, memoirs, plays, and poems ... Read More

  • Winnie Verloc: A Case of "Female Malady" in The Secret Agent
    • Abstract: A woman with a masculine mind is not a being of superior efficiency; she is simply a phenomenon of imperfect differentiation—interestingly barren and without importance. Dona Emilia's intelligence being feminine led her to achieve the conquest of Sulaco, simply by lighting the way for her unselfishness and sympathy. She could converse charmingly, but she was not talkative. […] A woman's true tenderness, like the true virility of man, is expressed in action of a conquering kind. The ladies of Sulaco adored Mrs. Gould. "They still look upon me as something of a monster," Mrs. Gould had said pleasantly to one of the three gentlemen from San Francisco she had to entertain in her new Sulaco house just about a year after ...

  • Comic Democracies: From Ancient Athens to the American Republic by Angus
           Fletcher (review)
    • Abstract: Modern democracy is a complex and contested idea. We can view it as a system of government that loosely describes most of the institutions of politics in the West, or we can view it as a way of life defined by the pursuit of freedom and equality. Both views may, in our moment, be under assault by various forms of demagoguery. We, in the West, seem to agree that whatever our view of democracy happens to be, its origins are in ancient Athens, and that the idea itself may need some revitalization in order to continue to meet the demands of our ever-changing sociopolitical landscape. Angus Fletcher's Comic Democracies is both a look back at the historical origins of thinking about democracy and a set of suggestions for ... Read More

  • God Mocks: A History of Religious Satire from the Hebrew Prophets to
           Stephen Colbert by Terry Lindvall (review)
    • Abstract: An ambitious study of a long and rich comic tradition, Terry Lindvall's God Mocks: A History of Religious Satire from the Hebrew Prophets to Stephen Colbert is an informative, yet problematic, introduction to religious satire in Western culture. Lindvall begins his broad survey by discussing the Jewish and Greco-Roman satire of the ancient world, and his first two chapters are "Circumcised Satirists" and "Caesar Salad Satirists." From there, he covers many forms and genres of English, American, and continental satire on spiritual matters, grouping satirists by nationality and geographic region. The idea of the satirist as prophet is a theme Lindvall introduces and develops in God Mocks, a title that intimates the ... Read More

  • Racial Reconstruction: Black Inclusion, Chinese Exclusion, and the
           Fictions of Citizenship by Edlie L. Wong (review)
    • Abstract: Edlie L. Wong's Racial Reconstruction: Black Inclusion, Chinese Exclusion, and the Fictions of Citizenship explores a range of literary texts produced between the 1850s and World War I to show how the processes of racialization of the Chinese diaspora, mainly in the United States, intersected with evolving post-Reconstruction concepts of American citizenship. Wong recovers and examines a variety of largely forgotten literary and journalistic genres about the phenomenon of Chinese immigration to, and presence in, the United States. She threads together the relationships between racializing discourses around African Americans and Chinese residents through an exploration of travel narratives about "coolie" labour in ... Read More

  • Monstrous Bodies: The Rise of the Uncanny in Modern Japan by Miri Nakamura
           (review)
    • Abstract: What are monstrous bodies and what implications do they pose for our understanding of Japanese modernity' Miri Nakamura's Monstrous Bodies: The Rise of the Uncanny in Modern Japan sets out to answer these questions in four chapters that expose powerful tensions and anxieties in imperial-era Japan. Her book wades into an already crowded field of scholarship on monsters, ghosts, and the like, including Marilyn Ivy's Discourses of the Vanishing (1995), Susan Napier's The Fantastic in Modern Japanese Literature (1996), Gerald A. Figal's Civilization and Monsters (1999), Nina Cornyetz's Dangerous Women, Deadly Words (1999), Michael Foster's Pandemonium and Parade (2009), and Mark Driscoll's Absolute Erotic, Absolute ...

  • Transatlantic Aliens: Modernism, Exile, and Culture in Midcentury America
           by Will Norman (review)
    • Abstract: Modernist studies and American Studies, remarks Will Norman, "rarely speak to each other" (15). Transatlantic Aliens offers at once an origin story for this silence, an inventory for what these fields have to talk about, and a dialectical reading practice capable of mediating between the antithetical interpretive categories that constantly risk dividing the institutional and aesthetic history of modernism from the daily, material reality of postwar American culture. By focusing upon a group of European exiles who arrived in the United States and took on "complex engagement[s] with the emergence of a fully fledged mass culture" (2), Norman unsettles the "persistent misconception by which the United States at ...

  • Asian American Media Activism: Fighting for Cultural Citizenship by Lori
           Kido Lopez (review)
    • Abstract: Lori Kido Lopez's study of Asian American media activism is a timely, well-researched, intelligent, and lucid book. Lopez's key argument is that "cultural citizenship is connected to media representation" (4) and that Asian American (Americans of Asian descent, as defined by the US census) activists view their fight as a collective endeavour rather than at the level of the individual (5). Though the study is based on an ethnography of activism organizations in Los Angeles, it encompasses a number of websites, and includes actors in the 1960s, the Asian Pacific American Media Coalition's negotiations with television networks, marketing, advertising, and communication groups who fight to recognize Asian Americans as ...

  • Unclaimed Experience: Trauma, Narrative, and History by Cathy Caruth
           (review)
    • Abstract: Initially published in 1996, Cathy Caruth's Unclaimed Experience: Trauma, Narrative, and History has been reprinted as a twentieth-anniversary edition and remains a remarkable text for reading trauma. This new edition offers Caruth's original publication plus an afterword in which she addresses some of the criticism her treatise on trauma has received over the last two decades. When Unclaimed Experience was first published, "trauma studies" was not a formally declared field. In the mid-1990s, research on trauma was pursued in clinical areas such as psychology and neurobiology, and marginally by Holocaust studies. Caruth's text was one of the first to shape this now recognized field, along with the scholarship of ... Read More
