Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2016 im Fachbereich Anglistik - Literatur, Note: 3,0, Universität Rostock (Anglistik), Veranstaltung: Black History in America, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: "The Color Purple" is one of the first novels that deals in detail with the oppression of African-American women. On the one hand it has been the first book by a female African-American writer that received the Pulitzer Prize for fiction and has until today been part of the canon of the African-American women's literature, but on the other hand it also has been criticized for the negative portrayal of men. In this term paper I want to analyze the intentions of the author Alice Walker to write about the theme of female oppression. At first I exemplify the two occurring forms of female oppression, sexism and racism, by the main characters of the novel. By regarding the numerous interviews Alice Walker has given concerning her writings and by regarding her biography, I will outline her intentions and determine whether she wrote about female oppression due to her own experiences with the theme or whether she had other motives.

According to Molly Hite, a number of influential contemporary women novelists—notably Jean Rhys, Doris Lessing, Alice Walker, and Margaret Atwood—attempt innovations in narrative form that are more radical in their implications than the dominant modes of fictional experimentation characterized as postmodernist. In The Other Side of the Story, Hite makes the point that these innovations, which distinguish the genre she calls contemporary feminist narrative, are more radical precisely because their context is the critique of a culture and a literary tradition apprehended as profoundly masculinist.

“Be the People is a courageous analysis of today’s most pressing issues, exposing the deceptions by the cultural elite and urging ‘We the People’ to restore America’s faith and values.”—Sean Hannity “There are many good books but only a few really important ones. Dr. Carol Swain’s Be the People is one of the latter. Brave, informed, candid, and thoughtful, she brings her fine academic mind to bear on the most pressing needs facing our country.”—Tony Perkins “A courageous, challenging, and controversial call to Americans of all colors to return to their Creator and to come to their Judeo-Christian senses.”—Dr. Peter A. Lillback “In Be the People Professor Carol Swain thoughtfully examines the biblical roots and religious significance of today’s most pressing issues. Professor Swain shows how to make your voice heard and how to reclaim America’s faith and values.”—Lou Dobbs An insightful analysis of the forces of deception rapidly reshaping America's morals, social policies, and culture, with a call to specific action, written by a thoughtful and courageous Christian social scientist on the front lines of today's issues. Cultural elites in the media, academia, and politics are daily deceiving millions of Americans into passively supporting policies that are detrimental to the nation and their own best interest. Although some Americans can see through the smokescreen, they feel powerless to redirect the forces inside and outside government that radically threaten cherished values and principles. Drawing on her training in political science and law, Dr. Swain thoughtfully examines the religious significance of the founding of our nation and the deceptions that have infiltrated our daily lives and now threaten traditional families, unborn children, and members of various racial and ethnic groups—as well as national sovereignty itself--and provides action points for the people of this country to make the political system more responsive. The book is divided into two sections: Forsaking what we once knew Re-embracing truth and justice in policy choices It also covers key topics such as: America's shift to moral relativism America's religious roots Abortion's fragile facade Historical and biblical views on families and children Erosion of rule of law, national security, and immigration Racial and ethnic challenges Reclaiming the future

This collection of new essays from 29 feminist scholars in a range of humanities and social science disciplines argues that pedagogical methods, as well as curricula and textbooks, should reflect feminist theories and emphases. At the same time, the scholars demonstrate that feminists can advocate both hierarchy and equality, authority and freedom, order and flexibility, objectivity and subjectivity, reason and feeling, without being guilty of philosophical treason.

Who would have guessed, in the twentieth year of His Glorys reign, the peace of an entire Galactic Dominion would be shattered. Like a pane of silicon glass, clear and unblemished, broken by a sudden malevolent blow. To those happy, prosperous people of faraway Playsaria, who are enjoying the fruits and blessings of the famed Pax Amaziana, that shattering unveiled a sudden monstrous design. Without notice, seething tentacles unraveled from a central pit causing the strangulation of so many fine comrades. A sickening malignancy, striking at the very heart of what people cherish as decent, swept down like a wave of churning death. Planetary systems, nameless and innocent, teeming with the bounty of their fathers efforts, are torn apart like a piece of meat in a pair of ravenous jaws. Desperate populations, wallowing in the ruins of their worst nightmares, witnessed horrors surged up from the abysmal depths of chaos, engulfing all. Only a sane mind would recoil in anguish, crying out for justice in the emptiness

A place written out of history. A world off the edge of the map. In this fantasy adventure trilogy, Sienna and the Mapwalker team must defend Earthside from the invasion of the Borderlanders and face their darkest challenge against the Shadow. Map of Shadows A map of skin etched in blood. A world under threat from the Borderlands. A young woman who must risk the shadows to save her family. When her Grandfather is murdered under mysterious circumstances, Sienna Farren inherits his map shop in the ancient city of Bath, England. She discovers that her family is bound up with the Ministry of Maps, a mysterious agency who maintain the borders between this world and the Uncharted. With the help of Mila Wendell, a traveller on the canals, Sienna discovers her own magical ability and a terrifying place of blood that awaits in the world beyond. But when she discovers a truth about her past and the Borderlands begin to push through the defenses, Sienna must join the team of Mapwalkers on their mission to find the Map of Shadows – whatever the cost. In a place written out of history, a world off the edge of the map, Sienna must risk everything to find her father ... and her true path as a Mapwalker. Map of Plagues A city threatened by an ancient plague. A love across borders. A desperate choice that could break their worlds apart forever. When a fragment of a deadly map is recovered from a medieval plague pit in London, the Mapwalker team must cross over into the Borderlands once more. In a race against time, they must find the remaining pieces of the map in a journey across long-lost cities before the Shadow Cartographers wield it against Earthside in a devastating attack. Can Sienna resist the call of the Shadow as she struggles to save her home? Will Finn take a risk on love across borders or leave the Earthsiders to their fate? Map of the Impossible A journey through the realm of the dead. A threat that will change the world. A choice that might save everything—or end it all. As natural disasters sweep Earthside, a mutant army rises in the Borderlands, driven by the dark force behind the Shadow Cartographers. Sienna and the Mapwalker team must use the Map of the Impossible to journey through the realm of the dead and face the nightmare at its heart. But when one of their number is taken and the team begins to break apart, each Mapwalker must face their greatest challenge. Can the Mapwalker team reach the Tower of the Winds before the Shadow claims Earthside? Will Sienna choose Finn — or turn away from the Borderlands forever? This ebook boxset contains three full-length portal fantasy adventure novels. The trilogy is the complete series.

This is the first in a new series entitled MHRA Bibliographies. The Annotated Bakhtin Bibliography draws its material from, and is intended as a companion to, the on-line Analytical Database of Work by and about the Bakhtin Circle: maintained by the Bakhtin Centre at the University of Sheffield, this is the most extensive electronic collection of bibliographical and analytical data relating to the Russian philosopher and cultural theorist Mikhail Bakhtin and the members of the Bakhtin Circle (principally Mariia Iudina, Matvei Kagan, Pavel Medvedev, Lev Pumpianskii, Ivan Sollertinskii and Valentin Voloshinov). The work of Bakhtin and the Bakhtin Circle has had enormous international impact across a range of disciplines, including literary and cultural theory, philosophy, history, anthropology, linguistics and psychology. The Annotated Bakhtin Bibliography will provide scholars and students of Bakhtin with easy access to detailed information on research undertaken throughout the world in these and other fields. The text of The Annotated Bakhtin Bibliography is in two parts. The first part comprises extensive bibliographical details of almost three hundred primary works (including information about translations and reprints). The second consists of almost one thousand entries containing analytical and annotated information about secondary literature dealing with Bakhtin and the Bakhtin Circle in over twenty languages, allowing the principal trends in the development of Bakhtin studies to be discerned and traced. Consultation of the bibliography is facilitated by comprehensive name, title and subject indexes.
