Description - Borders, Boundaries, and Frames by Mae Henderson
The essays in this volume take up the challenge of working out - or reworking - the problematics of the borders, the boundaries and the frameworks that structure our various and multiple notions of identity - textual, personal, collective, generic, and disciplinary. The contributors to this volume write about subjects (and are often themselves subjects) who "refuse to occupy a single territory" - who cross geographical, cultural, national, linguistic, generic, secular and disciplinary borders. Essays by Kathryn Hellerstein, Anita Goldman, Jane Marcus and Scott Malcomson explore the semiotics of exile and the problem of its representation in the lives and writings of individual artists and intellectuals. Autobiographical criticism, as represented in the essays by Nancy Miller and Sara Suleri, enlarges our conventional notions of what constitutes literature in general and criticism in particular. Essays by Manthia Diawara and Wahneema Lubiano focus on the application of cultural studies theory to the contexts of African-American culture.
