Description : Breaking Boundaries has as its primary intention just what the title implies: to reevaluate the paradigmatic and often divisive categories set forth by the literary establishment, whether those be cultural, linguistic, literary, academic, political, or sexual. We focus on an already extensive and rich body of literature written by Latina women, yet virtually unrecognized by institutions of power, although, fortunately, there are some exception.
Description : This book examines the controversial younger generation of poets who were `born into' the established socialist state of the GDR. It explores the ways in which these young poets have broken the literary and political boundaries which were imposed upon them, through an examination of their work, and assesses the durability of their radical project.
Description : Women throughout the centuries have sought to break out of the constraints that their societies deemed appropriate for them.
Description : Liminality has the potential to be a leading paradigm for understanding transformation in a globalizing world. As a fundamental human experience, liminality transmits cultural practices, codes, rituals, and meanings in situations that fall between defined structures and have uncertain outcomes. Based on case studies of some of the most important crises in history, society, and politics, this volume explores the methodological range and applicability of the concept to a variety of concrete social and political problems.

Description : First published in 1998, this volume explores the period 1585-1649, identifying it as rich in innovative drama which challenged the boundaries between social, political and cultural activities of various kinds. Molly Smith examines ways in which texts by Renaissance authors reflect, question and influence their society’s ideological concerns. In the drama of Kyd, Shakespeare, Beaumont and Fletcher, Webster, Middleton, Massinger and Ford, she identifies the simultaneously serious and playful appropriation of popular cultural practices, an appropriation which is expertly reversed by authorities in the political drama of Charles I’s public trial and execution in 1649. This compelling interpretation of Renaissance drama will prove of value to students of literature and social history.
