9780773541863: Disunified Aesthetics: Situated Textuality, Performativity, Collaboration

Diverse Nations, Diverse Responses provides a rich overview of the historical, demographic, and political forces that shape social cohesion. It also provides a comparative analysis of the policy goals that have been pursued, the programs that have been implemented, the ways that social cohesion has been defined and measured, and the effects of such issues on immigrants, minorities, and host communities. The volume provides a cross-national conversation on approaches to social cohesion and will appeal to researchers, policy-makers, and practitioners interested in immigration, diversity management, and the factors that affect policy choice, diversity, and outcomes.

About the Author:

Lynette Hunter is Distinguished Professor of the History of Rhetoric and Performance at the University of California, Davis.

Review:

Lynette Hunter’s work is a superb example of the advantage of crossing disciplinary lines and combining creativity with critical discourse. Extremely valuable for scholars of Canadian literature, theatre and performance, critical theory (in all contexts), and women’s studies, Disunified Aesthetics is a dynamic and compelling study that frequently manages to escape the confines of form.” Jane Koustas, Department of Modern Languages, Literatures, and Cultures, Brock University

Disunified Aesthetics is quietly intelligent and brilliantly self-reflexive. There are books that document a period or a movement in late twentieth-century Canadian writing but none that offers as extensive a critical engagement with processes of reading the literary texts in question.” Lianne Moyes, Department of English Studies, Université de Montréal

Hunter is looking to challenge the form of the conventional literary critical essay, to explore a "disunified aesthetics" that incorporates performance art pieces that are available online as website materials, or incorporated as typographic and visual a

Book Description McGill-Queen s University Press, Canada, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Aesthetics is a field still rooted in an understanding of a unified process where small numbers of people produce, commodify, and consume objects called art. Disunified Aesthetics deconstructs the literary object by invoking the critic s stance toward the written works with which they engage. Lynette Hunter s performative explorations provide a distinctly different way of understanding contemporary creative processes. Disunified Aesthetics takes up twenty-first-century aesthetics through an investigation of recent Canadian writing. The book is both a series of insights into literature and poetics of the last two decades and a story about moving from a traditional view of the relation between the artist, art, and its reception, to a more radically democratic view of aesthetics and ethics. Hunter addresses a range of Canadian women s writing, as well as close studies of the work of Robert Kroetsch, Lee Maracle, Nicole Brossard, Frank Davey, Alice Munro, Daphne Marlatt, and bpNichol. Disunified Aesthetics is a creative, challenging, and original investigation of textuality, performance, and aesthetics by a leading and innovative scholar. Bookseller Inventory # AAJ9780773541863
