1982: Es ist ein regennasser Januar in Black Swan Green, einem Dorf in der toten Mitte Englands. Jason Taylor – heimlicher Stammler und zögernder Poet – befürchtet ein Jahr der schlimmsten Langeweile. Doch er hat weder mit einem Haufen Schulschwänzer gerechnet, die ihm das Leben schwermachen, noch mit köchelndem Familienzwist, der exotischen (belgischen) Immigrantin, dem Falklandkrieg oder gar mit jenen rätselhaften Geschöpfen, die man Mädchen nennt. David Mitchells ebenso bezaubernder wie turbulenter Roman kartographiert dreizehn Monate im schwarzen Loch zwischen Kindheit und Erwachsenwerden, das Ganze im Abendrot eines heruntergekommenen Ex-Weltreiches. «Einer der wichtigsten jungen britischen Autoren.» (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung) «David Mitchell ist atemberaubend gut, einer der besten Erzähler seiner Generation.» (Neue Zürcher Zeitung)
The Revitalization of the Hupa Women's Coming of Age Ceremony
Language: en
Authors: W Cutcha Risling Baldy

At one time, the Hupa women's coming of age ceremony was a public celebration of a girl's first menstruation which demonstrated how young women are powerful members of Hupa society and that gender equality is central to Hupa epistemologies. California's post-invasion history was a genocide aimed at the total annihilation of Native peoples and included systematic attacks on Native women and their coming of age ceremonies. For the Hupa, the introduction of this gender violence would ultimately influence the continued practice of their world renewal ceremonies, specifically the women's coming of age ceremony. At the start of the new millennium, a group of Hupa women came together to bring back the women's ceremony as a way to strengthen their community and promote healing from the issues of exploitation and violence introduced during colonization. This dissertation explores the cultural revitalization of the Hupa women's ceremony to demonstrate how this revitalization articulates and supports an Indigenous decolonizing praxis by enacting Indigenous research methodologies that center on ceremony to counteract the impact of settler colonial ideologies of gender, history, literature and spirituality. This research explores questions engaged through the humanities such as: how can the collection of the Flower Dance narratives contribute to

Francophone Women Coming of Age

Authors: Debra Popkin

Type: BOOK - Published: 2009-03-26 - Publisher: Cambridge Scholars Publishing
This book began as a panel of University professors on the theme of Francophone Women, Coming of Age, Memoirs of Childhood and Adolescence, presented at the Northeast Modern Language Association Convention in Philadelphia, 2006. The essays center on the plight of growing up female in male-dominated Francophone cultures. Issues of culture, tradition, religion (Catholic and Muslim), parental conflicts and sibling rivalry are addressed in the works of authors from France, Quebec, Africa and the Caribbean. Authors whose memoirs and fiction are analyzed in this study span three continents––europe, North America (Quebec and the Caribbean) and Africa––but they share a common search for identity and self-definition.Dr. Beth Gale (Clark University) analyzes role-play and the use of language in the works of Annie Ernaux (France) and Assia Djebar (North Africa). Post-colonial angst and cross-cultural misunderstanding are the focus of the study of Aminata Sow Fall's Douceurs du bercail (Senegal, West Africa) by Dr. Natalie Edwards (Wagner College). Two chapters focus on Caribbean authors, from Guadeloupe: Dr. Debra Popkin (Baruch College CUNY) analyzes Giséle Pineau's special relationship with grandmother who gave her a sense of cultural identity; Dr. Leah Tolbert Lyons (Middle Tennessee State University) discusses the negative impact of the bad mothering
Coming of Age in Medieval Egypt

Much of what we know about life in the medieval Islamic Middle East comes from texts written to impart religious ideals or to chronicle the movements of great men. How did women participate in the societies these texts describe? What about non-Muslims, whose own religious traditions descended partly from pre-Islamic late antiquity? Coming of Age in Medieval Egypt approaches these questions through Jewish women’s adolescence in Fatimid and Ayyubid Egypt and Syria (c. 969–1250). Using hundreds of everyday papers preserved in the Cairo Geniza, Eve Krakowski follows the lives of girls from different social classes—rich and poor, secluded and physically mobile—as they prepared to marry and become social adults. She argues that the families on whom these girls depended were more varied, fragmented, and fluid than has been thought. Krakowski also suggests a new approach to religious identity in premodern Islamic societies—and to the history of rabbinic Judaism. Through the lens of women’s coming-of-age, she demonstrates that even Jews who faithfully observed rabbinic law did not always understand the world in rabbinic terms. By tracing the fault lines between rabbinic legal practice and its practitioners’ lives, Krakowski explains how rabbinic Judaism adapted to the Islamic Middle Ages. Coming of Age

The legendary Greek figure Orpheus was said to have possessed magical powers capable of moving all living and inanimate things through the sound of his lyre and voice. Over time, the Orphic theme has come to indicate the power of music to unsettle, subvert, and ultimately bring down oppressive realities in order to liberate the soul and expand human life without limits. The liberating effect of music has been a particularly important theme in twentieth-century African American literature. The nine original essays in Black Orpheus examines the Orphic theme in the fiction of such African American writers as Jean Toomer, Langston Hughes, Claude McKay, James Baldwin, Nathaniel Mackey, Sherley Anne Williams, Ann Petry, Ntozake Shange, Alice Walker, Gayl Jones, and Toni Morrison. The authors discussed in this volume depict music as a mystical, shamanistic, and spiritual power that can miraculously transform the realities of the soul and of the world. Here, the musician uses his or her music as a weapon to shield and protect his or her spirituality. Written by scholars of English, music, women's studies, American studies, cultural theory, and black and Africana studies, the essays in this interdisciplinary collection ultimately explore the thematic, linguistic structural presence of
Girlhood in British Coming-of-Age Novels

The book discusses a selection of coming-of-age narratives that offer a revisiting of the classic Bildungsroman heroine – the young white middle-class woman – and present her developments in postwar and postmillennial British literature. In terms of theoretical approaches, the study draws on works by the feminist critics whose incorporation of gender into the studies of the Bildungsroman resulted in the delineation of the female version of the genre, the female Bildungsroman and its specific twentieth-century variation, the feminist Bildungsroman. The selected coming-of-age novels present further transformations of the female Bildungsroman. The classic heroine of eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Bildung narratives reappears in twentieth-century novels as a modern girl who experiences a significant rise of feminist consciousness. In more recent works, she becomes a postfeminist girl who questions “victim feminism” and tests the potential of “girl power” to subvert the patriarchal tradition. Relating the postfeminist developments of the girl heroine to the influence of contemporary media culture, the book explores whether these literary representations of girlhood incorporate antifeminist backlash messages. It will be of interest to scholars and students in the fields of literary and girls’ studies, particularly those who want to see new trends and issues in young adult fiction
