Identifying Marks: Race, Gender, and the Marked Body in by Jennifer Putzi

By Jennifer Putzi

What we all know of the marked physique in nineteenth-century American literature and tradition frequently starts with The Scarlet Letter's Hester Prynne and ends with Moby Dick's Queequeg. This learn appears to be like on the presence of marked women and men in a tougher array of canonical and lesser-known works, together with exploration narratives, romances, and frontier novels. Jennifer Putzi exhibits how tattoos, scars, and types can functionality either as stigma and as logo of therapeutic and survival, hence blurring the borderline among the organic and social, the corporeal and spiritual.

Examining such texts as Typee, Uncle Tom's Cabin, Captivity of the Oatman Girls, The Morgesons, Iola Leroy, and Contending Forces, Putzi relates the illustration of the marked physique to major occasions, ideals, or cultural shifts, together with tattooing and captivity, romantic love, the patriarchal family members, and abolition and slavery. Her specific concentration is on either women and men of colour, in addition to white women-in different phrases, our bodies that didn't characterize personhood within the 19th century and therefore by means of their very nature have been gruesome.

On Creating a Usable Culture: Margaret Mead and the by Maureen A. Molloy

By Maureen A. Molloy

Margaret Mead’s profession took off in 1928 with the booklet of Coming of Age in Samoa. inside ten years, she was once the best-known educational within the usa, a task she loved all of her lifestyles. In On making a Usable Culture, Maureen Molloy explores how Mead was once prompted by way of, and encouraged, the meanings of yankee tradition and secured for herself a special and enduring position within the American well known mind's eye. She considers this in terms of Mead’s 4 renowned ethnographies written among the wars (Coming of Age in Samoa, becoming Up in New Guinea, The altering tradition of an Indian Tribe, and Sex and Temperament in 3 Primitive Societies) and the educational, middle-brow, and well known responses to them.

Molloy argues that Mead was once seriously motivated by means of the debates in regards to the forging of a particular American tradition that started round 1911 with the ebook of George Santayana’s "The Genteel Tradition." The construction of a countrywide tradition may remedy the issues of alienation and provincialism and determine a spot for either native-born and immigrant groups. Mead drew in this imaginative and prescient of an "integrated tradition" and used her "primitive societies" as exemplars of the way cultures attained or did not reach this excellent. Her ethnographies are quite approximately "America," the peoples she studied serving because the personifications of what have been generally understood to be the dilemmas of yank selfhood in a materialistic, individualistic society.

Two topics subtend Molloy’s research. the 1st is Mead’s articulation of the individual’s relation to his or her tradition through the trope of intercourse. every one of her early ethnographies specializes in a "character" and his or her difficulties as expressed via sexuality. This thematic ties her paintings heavily to the popularization of psychoanalysis on the time with its realizing of intercourse because the key to the self. the second one subject comprises the switch in Mead’s perspective towards and definition of "culture"―from the cultural determinism in Coming of Age to tradition because the enemy of the person in Sex and Temperament. This pattern parallels the consolidation and objectification of renowned notions approximately tradition within the Twenties and 1930s.

On making a Usable Culture can be eagerly welcomed by way of people with an curiosity in American reviews and historical past, cultural experiences, and the social sciences, and so much specially by way of readers of yankee highbrow historical past, the heritage of anthropology, gender experiences, and stories of modernism.
