Catullan Mediations and Other Essays

Examining the lyrical pathology of love and abuse in a series of disseminative contexts, Catullan Mediations and Other Essays premises itself on the notion that Catullus matters to modernity the way Vergil, Cicero, or Ovid matter to earlier literary-historical periods. "'I' am Catullus" is seen as the Plautine parole of an alterity in ego by which the semiotic field or tesseract thickens over time in patternings both aleatory and chiastic. Mallarméan "throws" lend poetic subjectivity its aliases and alibis, inscribing the dialectic of master and slave, exposing self and other to the festive chicanery of ancient mime and neoteric mask. Putting sadistic gamesmanship into nugatory practice, the Earl of Rochester elevates libertinage to a "fine" art. Through displacing acts of translation and refiguration, Byron, Verlaine, and the Parisian fin-de-siècle, including Catulle Mendès, take divergent measure of poetic liberty, "lesbianism", and "latinerie", raising the stakes of excruciation, parody, and fictionality. Catullus' impact on the graphic arts is felt from Alma-Tadema to Aubrey Beardsley and Cy Twombly, even as pre-Freudian psychopathology defines "classic" sexual deviancy up against new secular standards of normality.A subsequent essay on Henry James explicates the horological aspect in fictional and autobiographical texts from The Europeans to The Golden Bowl and beyond, focusing on the shifting role of women, present, past, and future, at home and abroad, in a narrative time and space infiltrated by floating, highly perspectivized constructs, such as the ivory tower and pagoda. Noting how accouterment and significant vehicles reflect turbulence of affect, Eisenhauer tracks James's ongoing commitment to caricature, arriving at a comparison between the aspectualizations in a Daumier illustration of the 1850s and a Coburn photograph used as a frontispiece in the New York edition (1912).Ranging from Cindy Sherman to film noir, Jean Renoir, and TV crime shows, " Ut Pictura Cinema" argues for a filmic stasis that models itself, theoretically, on still photography and painting. Miami Vice , whose vibe is seized between Wagnerian Gesamtkunstwerk and Bergsonian durée , is seen epitomizing a uniquely American sublime Finally, using H. G. Wells, The Omega Man , and Alphaville as critical touchstones, Eisenhauer asks what can be hoped for in a technocratric world where the alpha fe/male and digital revolution threaten to render art passé in ways only partly anticipated by thinkers such as Heidegger.

The Influence of Globalization on Culture
3,90 CHF *

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Globalization, Political Economics, grade: A, Webster University, language: English, abstract: In recent decades, many regions of the world have seen a marked increase in economic development due to the process of globalization as states have opened their borders to international markets, allowing for multinational corporations, non-governmental organizations, and foreign state actors to have an increasingly powerful influence over traditionally domestic matters. With this development and the advance of technology, media and communication have had the ability to reach regions of the world, which may have never been exposed to other cultures in the past. Undoubtedly, this has had an impact on the culture and societal norms of countless cultures as dominant world cultures expand their realm of influence through such media as TV programs and the internet. This report will examine to what extent dominant world cultures' impacts are on what will be termed 'traditional cultures' - a unique culture, which up until recently has been relatively unaware of and influenced by other outside cultures. Furthermore, it will examine whether this trend of globalization will advance the creation of a singular global culture. The debate of whether the erosion between traditional culture and the strengthening of a global culture is of particular concern as within recent history many groups, who are often termed minorities to the more dominant cultures, are concerned with the loss of their individuality, way of life, and even their national sovereignty. To pro or hyper-globalists, this loss of sovereignty is viewed as progress as the process of cultural homogenization will inevitably be responsible for the decay of conflict among differing cultural groups. However, to the 'minorities' or traditional cultures opposed to this form of cultural transformation, this theory poses a threat to their unique values and it is not likely that traditional cultures will likely submit to the notion that a growing global culture is an unavoidable fact.
