Modernism, Ireland and the Erotics of Memory

Modernism, Ireland and the Erotics of Memory by Nicholas Andrew Miller
English | Oct. 7, 2002 | ISBN: 0521815835 | 240 Pages | PDF | 1 MB

Nicholas Miller re-examines memory and its role in modern Irish culture. Asserting that a continuous renegotiation of memory is characteristic of Irish modernist writing, he investigates a series of case-studies in modern Irish historical imagination. He reassesses Ireland's self-construction through external or "foreign" discourses such as the cinema, and proposes new readings of Yeats and Joyce as "counter-memorialists." This original study attracts scholars of Modernism, Irish studies, film and literary theory.

Eroticism and the Body Politic

Eroticism and the Body Politic (Parallax: Re-visions of Culture and Society) by Lynn Hunt
English | Sep. 1, 1990 | ISBN: 0801840279 | 252 Pages | PDF | 24 MB

By the end of the nineteenth century, women had become an undeniable force both in the public discussion of social life and in politics itself. Yet in art and literature women's bodies continued to be represented– and domesticated– by men. They were still more often the object of the artist's or writer's gaze than they were the subject of their own representing processes. The erotic potential of women's bodies, however, was far from a marginal concern in the elaboration of modern forms of politics, art, literature, and psychology.

Genre: Science

In a world of self-driving cars and big data, smart algorithms and Siri, we know that artificial intelligence is getting smarter every day. Though all these nifty devices and programs might make our lives easier, they're also well on their way to making "good" jobs obsolete. A computer winning Jeopardy might seem like a trivial, if impressive, feat, but the same technology is making paralegals redundant as it undertakes electronic discovery, and is soon to do the same for radiologists. And that, no doubt, will only be the beginning.
