This dissertation is a rhetorical examination of discourses representing a global turn in gay identity politics. This turn encompasses proliferating (human) rights-based calls for LGBT protection/inclusion that have emerged from Western publics and institutions alongside less formalized avowals of transnational social and political fellowship organized around LGBTQ identities. This analysis draws upon extradisciplinary scholarship--particularly the Gay International and homonationalism--that critiques global gay identity (politics) for their imperialist and nationalist complicities. It also intervenes in that scholarship, arguing that these theories unduly subordinate the textual and contextual contours of global gay identity politics' situated production to the ideological and structural violences that undergird them. I argue instead for an approach grounded in transnational rhetorical theory, which conceptualizes the ideological, textual, and contextual facets of global politics' situated manifestations as being substantively co-constitutive. Each chapter of the dissertation deploys this analytic, examining the contours of gay identity politics' avowal at different transnational junctures. Chapter one examines athletes' and activists' LGBT-affirmative rhetoric surrounding the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, highlighting how the consonant political visions of gay identity politics and Olympism cultivated a false kairos that positioned the games as propitious for protesting the Russia's criminalization of "homosexual propaganda." Chapter two analyzes press accounts of gay tourism gone awry in the Caribbean, arguing that the Caribbean's regionalization in the Western imagination denies it sufficient foreignness or sovereignty to be deemed an object of properly global gay identity politics. Finally, chapter three analyzes controversy surrounding the Israeli military's staging and circulation of a photograph depicting two ostensibly gay soldiers, contending that although the photo represents a clear example of "pinkwashing," its rhetorical agency subsumed pinkwashing under unrelated deliberations regarding the photograph's affective authenticity. This dissertation, then, contributes to the field of transnational rhetorical studies while expanding those studies in topic and scope. Topically, it offers a sustained engagement with global gay identity politics to supplement existing analyses of human rights, global feminism, and global development rhetoric. Definitionally, it demonstrates how scholars can undertake analyses of discourses that are aspirationally global but non-programmatic alongside formal, institutionalized rights-based claims.

ALGOL APOCALYPSE. DAWN OF THE DEMON STAR. An unprecedented event - the Algol Parallax - wreaks havoc throughout the galaxy and spells disaster for planet Earth. Civilisation collapses. On the eve of annihilation Dr Thomas Lewis, director of Wyvern Abbey asylum, confronts the institution's most notorious inmate, Andromeda Polidori, leader of a doomsday cult whose esoteric doctrine may hold the key to salvation. His investigations propel Lewis deep into the savage heart of darkness - the emerald inferno - that has transformed the world beyond recognition ... a fantastic odyssey that culminates with the revelation of his own magickal destiny and the fate of all life. ALGOL ASYLUM combines the stylistic tropes of Gothic science fiction, Surrealism and Romanticism with the arcane symbolism of the occult, alchemy and Gnostic philosophy to create an apocalyptic epic of baleful power, invoking the radical experiments of iconic visionaries such as Aleister Crowley, HP Lovecraft, JG Ballard and Philip K Dick.

Once there was a Roman settlement on what is now Filey Brig. In Holderness, a prosperous town called Ravenser saw kings and princes on its soil, and its progress threatened the good people of Grimsby. But the Romans and the Ravenser folk are long gone, as are their streets and buildings sunk beneath the hungry waves of what was once the German Ocean.Lost to the Sea: The Yorkshire Coast & Holderness tells the story of the small towns and villages that were swallowed up by the North Sea. Old maps show an alarming number of such places that no longer exist. Over the centuries, since prehistoric times, people who settled along this stretch have faced the constant and unstoppable hunger of the waves, as the Yorkshire coastline has gradually been eaten away. County directories of a century ago lament the loss of communities once included in their listings; cliffs once seeming so strong have steadily crumbled into the water. In the midst of this, people have tried to live and prosper through work and play, always aware that their great enemy, the relentless sea, is facing them. As the East Coast has lost land, the mud flats around parts of Spurn, at the mouth of the Humber, have grown. Stephen Wades book tells the history of that vast land of Holderness as well, which the poet Philip Larkin called the end of land.

Sylvanus G Morley (1883-1948) is widely known as an influential Mayan archaeologist. This intriguing book shows that he was arguably the greatest American spy of World War I. Morley came to the attention of the Office of Naval Intelligence in 1916, when reports that German agents were establishing a Central American base for submarine warfare first surfaced. Morley's field research provided the ideal cover for reconnoitring throughout the region. He made several extended research/intelligence-gathering trips along the Caribbean coast of Central America starting in 1917 and forwarded detailed reports and maps to ONI. While he found no noteworthy German activity, his activities permit the authors of this book to reconstruct the way ONI identified, recruited, placed, and debriefed field agents, nearly 150 of whom, many with academic ties, were funnelling data to ONI by the close of World War I. In a final chapter, Sadler and Harris extend the story of academic participation in intelligence work through the 1930s into the founding of 'Wild Bill' Donovan's Office of Strategic Services (OSS) at the beginning of World War II.

When young Chris Dutton and his mother Dorie strolled into a pawnshop in Idaho Falls to kill a few lonely hours, they had no way to know that the used trumpet Chris bought and the second-hand L.C. Smith typewriter Dorie proudly carried away would eventually change their lives forever. Chris' father, Ross Dutton, was determined to reach the top rung of Ace Corporation's ladder by constantly agreeing to relocate whenever and wherever the big wheels at home office dictated. By the time his father was transferred from the Far West to the Deep South, Chris and Dorie had learned the bitter lesson that the only way to avoid the pain of saying good-bye to places and people was not to say hello. While Ross basked in success by complacently accepting the Southern way of life, Chris and Dorie turned to the trumpet and the typewriter to help them bridge the gap of loneliness they fell into each time Ross took another step up the corporate ladder by complacently accepting the cultural and political chaos which was taking place in the South in the early 1960's. Dorie privately retained her personal beliefs while advising Chris to, "When in Rome, eat Spaghetti." The emotional wall which Dorie and Chris constructed around themselves began to crumble when Chris and his trumpet were drafted by the school principal to form a six-boy band and Dorie again got out her L.C. Smith typewriter and resumed working on a manuscript she had begun writing in Idaho. "It's just a simple little love story," she called it. When the "simple little love story" was published, its words spread across Dixie like kudzu vines. Violence erupted. Blood was shed. Lives were forever changed.

With more than a thousand new entries and more than 2,300 word-frequency ratios, the magisterial fourth edition of this book-now renamed Garner's Modern English Usage (GMEU)-reflects usage lexicography at its finest. Garner explains the nuances of grammar and vocabulary with thoroughness, finesse, and wit. He discourages whatever is slovenly, pretentious, or pedantic. GMEU is the liveliest and most compulsively readable reference work for writers of our time. It delights while providing instruction on skillful, persuasive, and vivid writing. Garner liberates English from two extremes: both from the hidebound "purists" who mistakenly believe that split infinitives and sentence-ending prepositions are malfeasances and from the linguistic relativists who believe that whatever people say or write must necessarily be accepted. The judgments here are backed up not just by a lifetime of study but also by an empirical grounding in the largest linguistic corpus ever available. In this fourth edition, Garner has made extensive use of corpus linguistics to include ratios of standard terms as compared against variants in modern print sources. No other resource provides as comprehensive, reliable, and empirical a guide to current English usage. For all concerned with writing and editing, GMEU will prove invaluable as a desk reference. Garner illustrates with actual examples, cited with chapter and verse, all the linguistic blunders that modern writers and speakers are prone to, whether in word choice, syntax, phrasing, punctuation, or pronunciation. No matter how knowledgeable you may already be, you're sure to learn from every single page of this book.

An awareness of global English matters today as never before. To ensure that BryanGarner's clear, unambiguous advice resonates with English-speakers worldwide, more than 2,000 entries have been revised to account for the nuances of English not only in the United States, but in Australia and New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Canada, and South Africa.Not everything has changed: readers will still find the popular "Garner's Language-Change Index" which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from non-acceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistentstandard throughout. Bryan Garner's tools for scientific accuracy are, however, fully updated: this fourth edition benefits from usage data generated by Google Ngrams, which charts frequencies of any word or short sentence in sources printed after 1800.With thousands of concise entries, longer essays on problematic areas such as subject-verb agreement and danglers, and meticulous citations of the New York Times, Newsweek, and other leading journalistic sources, this fourth edition of Garner's Modern English Usage provides priceless referenceinformation to anyone hoping to improve as a writer - worldwide.

Since first appearing in 1998, Garner's Modern American Usage has established itself as the preeminent guide to the effective use of the English language. Brimming with witty, erudite essays on troublesome words and phrases, this book authoritatively shows how to avoid the countless pitfalls that await unwary writers and speakers whether the issues relate to grammar, punctuation, word choice, or pronunciation. Now in the third edition, readers will find the "Garner's Language-Change Index," which registers where each disputed usage in modern English falls on a five-stage continuum from nonacceptability (to the language community as a whole) to acceptability, giving the book a consistent standard throughout. Garner's Modern American Usage, 3e is the first usage guide ever to incorporate such a language-change index, and the judgments are based both on Garner's own original research in linguistic corpora and on his analysis of hundreds of earlier studies. Another first in this edition is the panel of critical readers: 120-plus commentators who have helped Garner reassess and update the text, so that every page has been improved.
