A propos de cet article

Language: English . Brand New Book. All civilisations have both feared and been fascinated by what lies beyond their limits, and have to a greater or lesser extent construed their others as exotics. Given that, even in its most consumerist fashion, the adoption of the exotic goes back a long way, what, then -if anything- is new in contemporary versions of exoticism? This volume attempts to offer some answers to this question. The first of its three sections serves as an extended introduction to the concept and practice of exoticism, considering the phenomenon from a number of theoretical and critical positions, explicitly examining -sometimes via significant examples- the particular attributes of exoticism. The second and third sections are more strictly text-based, relying on the analysis of specific instances of film in the former and literature in the latter, in order to tease out some specific uses of the exotic -whether ethnic, gendered, sexual or other. This volume will be of interest to scholars and students working in the fields of representation, cultural theory, postcolonialism, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, cinema and literature.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

All civilisations have both feared and been fascinated by what lies beyond their limits, and have to a greater or lesser extent construed their "others" as exotics. Given that, even in its most consumerist fashion, the adoption of the exotic goes back a long way, what, then -if anything- is "new" in contemporary versions of exoticism? This volume attempts to offer some answers to this question. The first of its three sections serves as an extended introduction to the concept and practice of exoticism, considering the phenomenon from a number of theoretical and critical positions, explicitly examining -sometimes via significant examples- the particular attributes of exoticism. The second and third sections are more strictly text-based, relying on the analysis of specific instances of film in the former and literature in the latter, in order to tease out some specific uses of the exotic -whether ethnic, gendered, sexual or other. This volume will be of interest to scholars and students working in the fields of representation, cultural theory, postcolonialism, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, cinema and literature.

Review:

"The great variety of texts [...], together with the richness of critical and theoretical perspectives gathered in each particular study, and the prolific use of updated specific bibliography make this compilation of papers highly useful and interesting ..." in: Miscelanea: a Journal of English and American Studies 24 (2001), pp. 175-178
