Katherine Mansfield and visual culture

Harland, Faye 2017 (has links)
The relationship between modernist fiction and visual culture has received substantial critical attention in recent years. However, many of the studies on this intermediality focus primarily on the drama, poetry, and novels of male authors, with Virginia Woolf being the only significant exception to this rule. I propose that this engagement with the visual in modernist fiction has a different social and cultural significance in the works of women writers. With reference to the short stories of Katherine Mansfield, I will explore the attempt to establish a female literary voice in what was perhaps the greatest transitory period for the role of women in the Western world. Although studies exist that consider the relationship between Mansfield’s writing and modern art and cinema, this thesis will provide a wider context for this period of cultural history. I take a variety of technological advancements into account, examining they ways in which they collectively provided the inspiration behind modernist literature’s new subjectivity of vision. As well as film, I will discuss the arts that developed prior to or alongside it, from the magic lantern to photography, and the impact they had on literature as writers sought new forms of representation. Furthermore, I believe that I will be able to examine this shift in cultural consciousness in a unique way through my focus on Mansfield, an author whose experimental work has received far less critical attention in terms of its engagement with other media than that of her contemporaries. Through reference to the visual arts, Mansfield was able to subjectively focalise her short stories through the eyes of her characters, presenting the ways in which women see and are seen in early twentieth-century society.

Diário de uma vida de menina : cinema e literatura no Brasil (representações da personagem feminina)

Silvestre, Penha Lucilda de Souza. 2011 (has links)
Orientador: Gilberto Figueiredo Martins Banca: Solange Ramos de Andrade Banca: Luciana Brito Banca: Luiz Roberto Velloso Cairo Banca: Paulo César Andrade da Silva Resumo: A pesquisa tem por objetivo geral investigar como se dá a constituição e representação da identidade do sujeito feminino, no texto literário Minha vida de menina (1942), de Helena Morley e, ainda, sua respectiva adaptação para o cinema, Vida de menina (2004), dirigida por Helena Solberg. O estudo divide-se em partes distintas: a) fortuna crítica do diário; b) leitura e análise interpretativa de Minha vida de menina (Diário de Helena Morley); c) leitura e análise da obra fílmica, fortuna crítica da produção da diretora de cinema; d) leitura comparativa do corpus delimitado e reflexão crítica sobre as diferentes modalidades artísticas, considerando a especificidade de cada obra; e) realização de entrevista com a cineasta e John Spangler. A partir de conceitos da teoria da literatura e de estudos voltados para a adaptação, propomos uma análise do diário e do filme com o intuito de observarmos a construção da personagem feminina, já que o diário teve sua gênese no final do século XIX e foi publicado em 1942. Já no início do século XXI, Solberg realiza a adaptação para o cinema dos relatos da menina mineira. Ambas apresentam um contexto social, histórico e ideológico da nação brasileira, num período de grandes mudanças políticas, como a libertação dos escravos (1888) e Proclamação da República (1889); por conseguinte, o país iniciava o processo de modernização. Nessa reunião de informações, o diálogo intertextual presente entre o filme e o diário mostra uma personagem emancipada para o tempo em que viveu, pois rompe com costumes, ideias e ações, distanciando-se... (Resumo completo, clicar acesso eletrônico abaixo) Abstract: This study has as its general objective to investigate how the identity of the female character is constituted and represented, in the literary text "Minha vida de menina" (1942), by Helena Morley and also its respective adaptation to the movies "Vida de menina" (2004), directed by Helena Solberg. This study is divided in distinct parts: a) the critical fortune of the diary; b) the reading and interpretative analysis of "Minha vida de menina" (The Diary of Helena Morley); c) the reading and the analysis of the filmic work, the critical fortune of the production of the movie director; d) the comparative reading of the delimited corpus and the critical reflection on the different artistic modalities, taking into consideration the specificity of each work; e) the interview with the filmmaker Vera Brant. Starting from the concepts of the theory of the literature and of the studies turned to the adaptation, we propose an analysis of the diary and of the movie with the intention of observing the female character construction, since the diary had its genesis in the end of the 19th century and was published in 1942. In the beginning of the 21st century, Solberg concluded the adaptation for the movies of the "mineira" girl's reports. Both present a social context, historical and ideological of the Brazilian nation, in a period of great political changes, such as the Abolition of the Slavery (1888) and the...

Os documentários de Geraldo Sarno (1974-1987) : sertão, poesia e religiosidade The documentaries of Geraldo Sarno (1974-1987) : sertão, poetry and religion

Felipe Corrêa Bomfim 2015 (has links)
Resumo: Esta pesquisa estuda a obra do cineasta Geraldo Sarno, considerando o conjunto de documentários realizados pelo diretor. O trabalho de pesquisa empírico ¿ traduzido na organização do acervo do diretor, mediante a reunião dos dados sobre a produção dos documentários estudados - aliado às análises traçadas neste estudo, compreendem um breve investimento analítico, no intuito de apresentar e discutir o conjunto de documentários até então inéditos e que passam a ser considerados como conjunto na filmografia de Geraldo Sarno. Identifica-se a passagem para um novo ciclo em sua poética, evidenciado por meio do processo de revisão do próprio cineasta sobre sua maneira de documentar, iniciado na virada da década de 1970 e desenvolvido amplamente ao longo das décadas de 1970 e 1980. Este procedimento é dotado de momentos de radicalização formal e outras situações marcadas por investimentos mais ponderados, quanto aos parâmetros de registro utilizados pelo cineasta, condicionados às demandas de produção. Esta oscilação dificulta a compartimentação rígida de sua obra e oferece a leitura de sua poética como processo singular e arbitrário, que extrapola metodologias de filmagem pré-estabelecidas para cada documentário. Assim, cabe ressaltar que essa passagem para um novo ciclo na filmografia do diretor é um processo sutil e gradual, a passos largos de uma mudança paradigmática. Abstract: This research studies the work of filmmaker Geraldo Sarno and the set of his documentaries. This empirical research aims to present, analyse and discuss the whole set of inedit documentaries produced by Geraldo Sarno. Through organising the documentaries collection of the diretor and data collecting of his documentaries, an analytic work was done. The results pointed out that his poetic turned of a new cicle and the diretor has reviewed his own way to make the documentaries himself on the 70's, which was widely developed over the 70's and 80's. This procedure is composed by two moments: one of formal radicalization and other pointed by weighted investment in the register's parameters used by filmmaker. This oscillation hinders the partitioning of his work. Besides, the understanding of his poetic became as a singular and arbitrary process, which extrapolate the methodologies of filming according to an established plan. This passage to a new cicle in the director's filmography is a subtle and gradative process coming through a paradigmatical change.

Ethnic peculiarity and universal appeal : the ambivalence of transition in mid-twentieth century Jewish American culture

Homer, Jarrod 2012 (has links)
This thesis examines the contribution of Jewish artists to American popular culture in the mid-twentieth century and argues that the Jewish imagination contains a peculiar ability to simultaneous articulate the concerns of a specifically ethnic identity and a more universal American character. The thesis posits that by exploring how the Jewish community negotiated the space between ethnic identity and an American paradigm, Jewish artists were able to explore the middle ground between individuality and conformity, selfhood and consensus, liberalism and conservatism, tradition and change, and heritage and progress that held a wider pertinence for a more general American audience. The thesis argues that the diversity of the Jewish American imagination at this time can be united by a leitmotif that can be best described as the ambivalence of transition. By examining aesthetically dissimilar texts from a variety of artistic fields, in particular comic books, theatre, cinema, television, and literature, the thesis argues that despite the cultural evolutions that occurred throughout the thirties, forties and fifties, the Jewish voice articulated a continuing concern regarding the relationship between ethnic identity, masculine identity, the individual and mass culture. This last point hints at another preoccupation of this thesis; the texts analysed here all share a narrative focus that explores and represents notions of masculine identity and ideality. In this way, the thesis necessarily focuses upon debates about masculinity within the Jewish imagination and American culture, charting the evolution of the Jewish and American male and their relationship towards notions of performed, consensus, individual and paradigm masculinity. Although there has not necessarily been a desire to fully deny the notion of a continuing thematic preoccupation within the Jewish imaginary, previous scholarship has shown a tendency towards accentuating the eclectic nature of Jewish American culture. Whilst scholars like Paul Buhle and Stephen J. Whitfield recognise the importance of popular culture as an arena in which Jewish artists sought to articulate issues at the heart of Jewish identity and community in the US, their studies focus upon the kaleidoscopic eclecticism of Jewish American culture. The intention of this thesis is to harness the diversity inherent in Jewish cultural expression via the prevailing leitmotif of the ambivalence of transition. In this way the thesis will use the multifarious and textured fabric of mid-century Jewish culture, as well as the simultaneous articulation of both ethnic and more general concerns, to illuminate the understanding of both Jewish identity and American culture throughout the mid-century. Thus, the thesis builds upon work by the likes of Julian Levinson and Hana Wirth-Nesher that revisits ideas of assimilation and attempts to complicate the inexorable movement away from Jewish distinctiveness and identity. Similarly, the thesis builds upon studies by the likes of Pamela Robertson Wojcik and Will Brooker that attempt to accentuate the reductive understanding of the mid-century based upon boundless suburbia and unthinking conformity.

Identidades imaginárias: um estudo comparado do livro A máquina de fazer espanhóis, de Valter Hugo Mãe, e do filme Terra estrangeira, de Walter Salles e Daniela Thomas Imaginary identities: a compared study of the book \"A máquina de fazer espanhóis\", by Valter Hugo Mãe, and the movie \"Terra estrangeira\", by Walter Salles and Daniela Thomas

Paula Fabrio 17 September 2015 (has links)
O romance de Valter Hugo Mãe, A máquina de fazer espanhóis, traz à tona a discussão sobre a fragmentação de identidade do povo português, revelando o mal-estar nacional perante a situação socioeconômica do país no período pós-Salazar e diante do contexto da globalização neoliberal, bem como a relação de Portugal com os blocos hegemônicos de poder e ex-colônias. O filme Terra estrangeira, dos cineastas Walter Salles e Daniela Thomas, dialoga com o cenário de globalização da obra de Mãe e sugere uma reflexão sobre a fragilidade de identidade dos brasileiros durante o Governo Collor, abordando o fenômeno da emigração para a Europa. Trabalhando com a comparação entre as obras, sobretudo de seus momentos históricos e as diferenças de enfoque narrativo, este projeto visa discutir as relações entre identidade nacional e representação da História pela literatura e cinema. The novel by valter hugo mãe, a máquina de fazer espanhóis, brings the discussion about the identity fragmentation of Portuguese people, revealing the discomfort in front of the social economic situation since the post-Salazar period and in the face of the context of neoliberal globalization, as well as its relation with hegemonic blocs of power and the former colonies. The motion picture Terra estrangeira, by Walter Salles and Daniela Thomas, dialogues with the globalization scenario of Mãe\'s work and suggests a reflection about the identity fragility of the Brazilian people during the Collor government and, consequently, the phenomenon of the immigration to Europe. Comparing both works, especially the historic periods and the differences of narrative focus, this study examines the relations between peoples identity and representation of History by literature and cinema.
