Nostalgia, Gender, and Nationalism - Narrative Traditions (Hardcover, illustrated edition): Suzanne Kehde, Jean Pickering Nostalgia, Gender, and Nationalism - Narrative Traditions (Hardcover, illustrated edition)
Suzanne Kehde, Jean Pickering
R2,412 Discovery Miles 24 120 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Most Americans think of Betsy Ross as she was depicted in Charles Weisberger's popular painting The Birth of Our Nation's Flag--a motherly figure, sewing at the hearth. In fact, as Jo Ann Menezes's analysis in Nostalgia, Gender, and Nationalism points out, Ross was a widowed businesswoman who ran an upholstery shop out of her house. In Weisberger's painting, all signs of economic industry are erased and Ross's house is transformed into a home rather that the site of cottage industry. Ross is constructed as the perfect heroic mother, worthy of sacred creation; thus, our flag was born.

Ross's transformation into an icon neatly illustrates the conjunction of soaring nationalism and the establishment of woman as a fixed domestic presence and serves as an excellent example of the master narratives revealed in Nostalgia, Gender, and Nationalism.

The essays in this provocative anthology explore the connections between nation and gender and the ways in which nostalgia functions to bind these two presumably unrelated constructions together. Collectively they suggest that women pay a special fee on behalf of the nation, even though it is traditionally represented as an honorarium given to them and that, in fact, the nation-state takes as a foundational principle the subordination of women.

For over fifty years, the American Film Institute has flourished as one of America's great cultural entities. Its graduates, faculty, supporters, and trustees have included such acclaimed individuals as Steven Spielberg, Maya Angelou, Gregory Peck, Meryl Streep, Les Moonves, Patty Jenkins, David Lynch, Jane Fonda, Edward James Olmos, Shonda Rhimes, James L. Brooks, Michael Nesmith, Sir Howard Stringer, and many other respected leaders in the worlds of film, television, digital media, and philanthropy. Written in a unique memoir style, Becoming AFI: 50 Years Inside the American Film Institute offers a candid look at how this remarkable organization has brought together aspiring filmmakers, outstanding educators, and visionary artists. The book details AFI's journey to becoming the foremost national champion for moving images as a vibrant art form and a critical component of America's cultural history. AFI's story is chronicled through in-depth essays written by those who have been involved in its adventures, growth, and successes: from its early years under George Stevens Jr.'s direction at the legendary Greystone mansion and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC; through its period of incredible growth, under Jean Picker Firstenberg's guidance, as an influential cultural institution at its landmark Hollywood campus; to its continued years of excellence under Bob Gazzale's dynamic leadership. Becoming AFI provides an insightful, behind-the-scenes look at how AFI-with passionate determination-overcame the hurdles of advancing technology, political shifts, and new audience dynamics to turn its aspirations into a substantial and highly successful organization. A tireless advocate of moving images as one of America's most popular art forms, AFI is maturing into one of the world's most respected educational and cultural institutions.

Narratives of Nostalgia, Gender and Nationalism (Hardcover): Suzanne Kehde, Jean Pickering Narratives of Nostalgia, Gender and Nationalism (Hardcover)
Suzanne Kehde, Jean Pickering
R2,757 Discovery Miles 27 570 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Using texts ranging from the writings of Schlegel to the speeches of the fiftieth-anniversary commemoration of D-Day, these essays explore the ways in which nostalgia brokers the relations between the master narratives of gender and the master narratives of nationalism. Although such narratives seem to present nation as an unchanging essence, these essays all deal with texts that on analysis show nationalism in an evolving response to developments, both political and cultural, that destabilize the idea of nation.
