John Frederick Lewis (1804-1876) is one of the best-known yet least understood British Orientalist painters of the 19th century. His numerous, highly detailed Orientalist images stand in dramatic contrast to the meager written archive of the years he spent in Egypt between 1841 and 1851; art historians have long puzzled over the details of this significant period and struggled for meaningful insight into his process of artful construction. This innovative book, the first critical monograph devoted to this acclaimed artist, draws on both newly uncovered historical data and imperial and post-colonial theory to propose a compelling new interpretation of Lewis’s paintings and biography. In addition to offering formal, historical, and theoretical examinations of Lewis’s highly nuanced subject matter, Weeks argues that Lewis crafted an ambiguous, cross-cultural identity that challenged viewers’ understanding of fact and fiction and, along with his pictures, subverted systems of patriarchal power in England and abroad.

The first of two volumes on the social history of Wales in the period 1870–1948, People, Places and Passions concentrates on the social events and changes which created and forged Wales into the mid-twentieth century. This volume considers a range of social changes little considered elsewhere by studies in Welsh history, accounting for the role played by the people of Wales in times of war and the age of the British Empire, and in technological change and innovation, as they travelled the developing capitalist and consumerist world in search of fame and fortune.

Crossing Cultures is an exciting demonstration of the quality of new research being undertaken in Canberra and Darwin. Covering seemingly diverse topics in Art, Society, Material Culture, Indigenous Issues and History, the volume brings together scholars who are concerned to understand and communicate the ways in which people of the Australian region represent their worlds and engage with them.The result of a conference held in Darwin, this group of papers displays the work of young and not so young writers whose enthusiasm and freshness shine through what are often quite complex inter-cultural encounters. The representation of ?The Other? in our writing is an ongoing issue for those working in the Humanities and Social Sciences. This volume reveals the extent to which these contemporary writers are sensitive to the problem of recounting the lives of others in a manner that makes them comprehensible without reducing their integrity. These current and recently past post-graduate students succeed admirably in their task and their studies are clear and informative as well as imaginative.The breadth and vitality of this collection will undoubtedly convince readers that cross- cultural research is very much alive in Australia and that it continues to produce high quality outcomes that enrich our understanding.Crossing Cultures is a valuable addition to the literature for all those interested in analysing both contemporary and historical cultural processes.

Too often it is difficult to find an anthology that offers high- interest readings that stress cultural differences. Readers will have to look no more with the fifth edition of this highly-successful book of readings. Crossing Cultures introduces readers to a wide variety of cultures in the United States. Because we need to look at other cultures to define our own, one complete section emphasizes cultures elsewhere. Each selection has been chosen because it is a "good read" with an engaging subject and style. Each chapter begins with a short, personal reading, moves to more difficult pieces, and ends with a poem. Ideal for those seeking a multicultural anthology for their libraries.

Category: Literary Criticism
In this important new study, Judith Oster looks at the literature of Chinese Americans and Jewish Americans in relation to each other. Examining what is most at issue for both groups as they live between two cultures, languages, and environments, Oster focuses on the struggles of protagonists to form identities that are necessarily bicultural and always in process. Recognizing what poststructuralism has demonstrated regarding the instability of the subject and the impossibility of a unitary identity, Oster contends that the writers of these works are attempting to shore up the fragments, to construct, through their texts, some sort of wholeness and to answer at least partially the questions Who am I? and Where do I belong? Oster also examines the relationship of the reader to these texts. When encountering texts written by and about “others,” readers enter a world different from their own, only to find that the book has become mirrorlike, reflecting aspects of themselves: they encounter identity struggles that are familiar but writ large, more dramatic, and set in alien environments. Among the figures Oster considers are writers of autobiographical works like Maxine Hong Kingston and Eva Hoffman and writers of fiction: Amy Tan, Anzia Yezierska, Henry Roth, Philip Roth, Cynthia Ozick, Lan Samantha Chang, and Frank Chin. In explicating their work, Oster uses Lacan's idea of the “mirror stage,” research in language acquisition and bilingualism, the reader-response theories of Iser and Wimmers, and the identity theories of Charles Taylor, Emile Benveniste, and others. Oster provides detailed analyses of mirrors and doubling in bicultural texts; the relationships between language and identity and between language and culture; and code-switching and interlanguage (English expressed in a foreign syntax). She discusses food and hunger as metaphors that express the urgent need to hear and tell stories on the part of those forging a bicultural identity. She also shows how American schooling can undermine the home culture's deepest values, exacerbating children's conflicts within their families and within themselves. In a chapter on theories of autobiography, Oster looks at the act of writing and how the page becomes a home that bicultural writers create for themselves. Written in an engaging, readable style, this is a valuable contribution to the field of multicultural literary criticism.
Not everything about cultural adjustment is harder or more complex than it first
appears . In at least one respect it's actually easier than we might think - easier
because we've done it before , whether we've ever left our native shores or not .
Author: Craig Storti
Craig Storti has broken new ground. While focusing on the basic psychological processes involved in encountering a foreign culture and adapting to it, he takes the next and very difficult step of suggesting a model for encountering the culture straight-on, managing the temptation to withdraw, and gradually adjusting expectations of behavior to fit the reality of the culture. To provide illustrations for his model, Storti uses a superb sampling of excerpts from literature by writers such as Mark Twain, Rudyard Kipling, E. M. Forster, Mary Renault, Philip Glazebrook, Horace Walpole and Noel Coward.

This bulletin presents the principal external diagnostic characteristics of the sedentariate & archiannelid polychaetes of British Columbia & Washington in a tabulated scheme. Keys to all the genera from the continental shelves of the cold- temperate North Pacific Ocean are provided under the relevant family. Species keys identify the species known from British Columbia & Washington and an additional 19 species which may be expected to occur there. A checklist of the 273 species known from landward of the 200-metre isobath indicates those species for which the authors have seen local specimens. Diagnostic characters are presented in the specific & generic keys in a series of alternative choices. Supplemental characters from certain species are added to preclude accidental misidentification of species not yet recorded from British Columbia & Washington but known from elsewhere in the cold-temperate North Pacific. Brief instructions for specimen collection, fixation, identification, and use of the key are also provided, along with a glossary & an index to the scientific names.
