Abstract [en]

This book draws attention to the controversy that surrounds Betty Friedan, Germaine Greer, Gloria Steinem, and Simone de Beauvoir’s lives and the important role that their life stories have played in their feminist writing. Directly and indirectly, the four women have contributed to battles over feminism’s meaning through autobiographically informed political writing. Inevitably, therefore, their biographers are also participants in these battles, yet not always on the same side as their subjects. Writing Feminist Lives introduces a further fold of nuance into considerations of biography and feminism by showing that the biographers of the four women have made methodological choices that reflect their loyalty to, or their scepticism towards, competing ideological definitions of the exemplary feminist life.

Abstract [en]

This chapter examines the portrayal of Ireland's mother-and-baby homes in the generally well-received film Philomena and the account on which the film is based, the British journalist Martin Sixsmith's portrayal of Philomena Lee's life and search for her son, who had been given up to an American couple for adoption under coercive circumstances. Enforced adoptions have long been a part of Irish life that was silenced within official discourse, just as the women themselves were silenced under a blanket of shame and denial within a form of patriarchal nationalism. Cultural representations such as film and trauma biography will of course tend towards certain structures of storytelling that reveal in dramatic form the deep emotional wounds inflicted on the survivors, yet are often challenged by an official discourse as shallow and untrustworthy. This controversy draws attention to other conflicts and paradoxes that can operate when there are attempts to give a voice to the silenced or marginalized, yet such efforts have begun a process of forcing a re-evaluation of Ireland's narratives of nationhood through the twentieth century

Abstract [en]

In late capitalist society, it does not matter whether emotions are genuine; what matters is that questionable actions are accompanied by public displays of regret and apology. Vampires have long been used as metaphors for capitalism. Like the neoliberal subject, the vampires on the television show The Vampire Diaries feel conflicted by their inability to separate their feelings from their more violent instincts. As such, the vampires, too, must learn the balancing act of switching on and off their “humanity” as the situation demands. In other words, they must learn to play their part in the contemporary apology theatre.

Abstract [en]

This essay explores links among food, class and gender in two memoirs written by contemporary American expatriates in France. The argument made is that references to French cuisine simultaneously create and resolve the tensions that arise in the texts when the authors describe their ideal and elitist lives to a presumed American female readership. Food references highlight the elitism of the French lifestyle, yet they also contribute to making the memoirs and the lifestyle that they advocate more accessible to readers when presented in the form of simple recipes or as integral parts of a self-narrative of developing tastes.

Abstract [en]

In Philip Roth’s The Human Stain (2000) and Percival Everett’s Erasure (2001) multiculturalism is described as moralistic and essentialist; both novels present black American male protagonists who feel victimized by multiculturalism. Although critics have maintained that the two novels present a universalist view of American identity, in this essay, the argument is made that the novels’ implicit criticism of multiculturalism is better understood in transcultural terms.
