Eckhard, Petra:Chronotopes of the Uncanny: Time and Space in Postmodern New York Novels, Paul Auster’s City of Glass and Toni Morrison’s Jazz.  [cached]
Evangelia Kiriakidou
European Journal of American Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.4000/ejas.9706
Abstract: Petra Eckhard’s book seeks to examine the ways in which American writers of the late 20th century have incorporated the “uncanny” into their novelistic discourse. The writer, who is now Assistant Professor in the Department of American Studies, University of Graz, Austria, reads two American novels of the late 20th century using the theories of Freud, Todorov and Bakhtin. The title itself is quite suggestive, as the words “chronotope” and “uncanny” set the tone of the analysis and introduce ...
Early Romanian Exegeses of Fowles’s Major Novels: Translations and Critical Studies Published prior to 1989 and in the Early 90s
Narcisa SCHWARZ
Studii de Stiinta si Cultura , 2013,
Abstract: In this article we present the early Romanian exegeses of Fowles’s major novels: translations and critical studies published prior to 1989 and in the early 90s.Fowles’s translations published during this period prove two distinct things: firstly, that after a ten year long gap in between the translation of The French Lieutenant’s Woman and Daniel Martin, the Romanian readership quickly caught on to Fowles’s fiction and translations started to appear at an interval of two to three years; secondly, that the obvious reasons for this order was the reception of Fowles’s novels abroad: the main reason for the translation of The French Lieutenant’s Woman before The Collector, The Aristos and The Magus which preceded it chronologically, must have been the huge success the novel enjoyed in many parts of the Western world.Apart from the translations mentioned above, one can also point to a quite impressive number of critical studies, which actually form the core of any discussion of Fowles’s reception in Romania.
The Postmodern Consumer: An Identity Constructor?  [cached]
Manel Hamouda,Abderrazak Gharbi
International Journal of Marketing Studies , 2013, DOI: 10.5539/ijms.v5n2p41
Abstract: This article attempts to contribute to better understand the postmodern consumer, by trying to identify one of its main characteristics: an identity constructor. Indeed, after studying the postmodern conditions, we have noticed that every condition favors the creation of identities voluntarily and consciously assumed by the consumer. The consumer is always looking to be socially desired by changing his identity every time he wishes. An empirical study was, therefore, conducted to confirm this postmodern consumer trend. The results found shows that the postmodern consumer is not seeking to manage his impression in front of others through changing identities but rather he seeks to live deeply himself in all identities which he built.
Practical implications of 'postmodern philosophy'  [PDF]
Savi? Mile V.
Filozofija i Dru?tvo , 2002, DOI: 10.2298/fid0209021s
Abstract: The article examines the implications of the discourse about postmodernity. Postmodernity is analyzed as a complex discursive figure. Within the discourse about postmodernity three levels are distinguished: the postmodern condition, postmodernism, and reflection of the postmodern condition. Special attention is paid to globalization and the problem of the enforcement of modern projects in East-European societies, particularly Serbia. These societies are termed object-societies, while their modification of modernity is called eastmodernity. The author's answer to the complexity of the postmodern condition is a conception of the politics of subsistence.

Media and postmodern reality  [PDF]
Ma?irevi? Ljubomir
Sociologija , 2010, DOI: 10.2298/soc1002127m
Abstract: The paper tackles the ideas of key postmodern theoreticians on the role of the media in contemporary societies. The aim is to show that according to postmodern theory the media have become the leading factor in contemporary social processes marked by the loss of sense of historical continuity in everyday human experience. Postmodern theoreticians claim that, since the media system, which has come to wholly encompass reality at the turn of this century, is unable to reclaim the past, human existence has found itself in the ceaseless schizophrenic present. Simulations of events that once were and come back to us today like a string of anachronistic media notions about the past, bring us into the state of historical amnesia. The media, and cinema above all, are the main catalyst of this process, as well as of what postmodernists call the new superficiality and shallowness of social life. Postmodern reality is characterized by a simulation of history which didn't happen; today people are exposed to pseudo-experience emerging from constant exposure to the simulacrum of historical events. In place of conclusion, Baudrillard's interpretation of the Gulf War as a virtual media event is offered.
Can museums survive the postmodern?  [cached]
Suzanne Keene
Archaeology International , 2005, DOI: 10.5334/ai.0910
Abstract: Although archaeologists regard museums as vital repositories of important research materials, museum professionals take a broader view of their role in not only preserving natural and cultural heritage but also of how they could or should be presented, or interpreted, to the public. In this personal view, issues of what museums should be, or seek to be, in a postmodern world are explored.
The Game of Irony in Charles Dickens’ Novels
Ioana Boghian
LiBRI : Linguistic and Literary Broad Research and Innovation , 2010,
Abstract: The paper aims at identifying the three types of irony – verbal, dramatic and of situation – in some of Charles Dickens’ novels in order to reveal the author’s contribution to the modern understanding of Victorianism. The ironic discourse will be analyzed so as to show the true underlying meaning of Dickens’ texts. It is said that Dickens revealed through irony more than historians could have ever revealed through direct telling, and to show whether this is true or not represents the purpose of the current paper. As far as Victorianism is concerned, the first major paradigms which irony is aimed at are precisely Victorian respectability, domesticity and stability.
