Autorentext

The Editor: Renate von Bardeleben has held the chair for American Studies at the School of Applied Linguistics and Cultural Studies of the University of Mainz in Germersheim since 1980. She received her Ph.D. in American Literature from the University of Mainz. Upon the completion of her habilitation at the same institution, she taught at the Free University of Berlin and the University of Bamberg. Her research has centered on autobiography, minority writing, social and regional dialects, and bilingualism. In 1984, she hosted the First International Conference on Chicano Culture in cooperation with Juan Bruce-Novoa and Dietrich Briesemeister, thus initiating this now traditional forum of intercultural exchange in the field of Hispanic Studies.



Klappentext

This collection is comprised of 35 critical articles as well as selected poems presented during the IV International Conference on the Hispanic Cultures of the United States. The symposium was organized by Renate von Bardeleben in cooperation with Juan Bruce-Novoa, Erlinda Gonzales-Berry and María Herrera-Sobek and held at the University of Mainz in Germersheim in 1990. Under the central theme of Gender, Self, and Society, the volume focuses on the intricate interplay of gender in the process of individuation and socialization. The spectrum of topics includes gender and genre theory, the writing of a gendered literary history, the poetic quest of men and women writers, sexual stereotyping in fiction, the emergence of the male/female self as man/woman and writer, interracial sexual relations, intergenerational gender relations, gender and the sense of place, the frontier heroine, the use of literary motifs and folkloric elements in female writings, the impact of the literary tradition and the crosscultural influence of gender concepts. The focus on gender unmasks subtle, submerged, and subversive developments in the interaction between the sexes in these traditionally male-oriented cultures. New light is shed on topics ranging from politics and sociology to literature, linguistics, and the arts.



Inhalt

Contents: The sociologically, linguistically, and educationally oriented papers deal with the problematic search for new paradigms of research within Chicano Social Studies, the gender gap in motion pictures, gender markings in the speech of Anglos, Mexican-Americans and Puerto Ricans and their implications in terms of the power structure, the contribution of women educators, gender stereotypes in ethnic music, women and poverty, the migrant experience, the treatment of ethnic celebrations by the press and, as a final highlight, the political awareness of gender and ethnicity.
