“An inspiration and the benchmark by which I judge historical novels.” —Alison Weir "A glorious example of romance in its most classic literary sense: exhilarating, exuberant, and rich with the jeweled tones of England in the 1300s." —Austin Chronicle Katherine is an epic novel of the love affair that changed history—that of Katherine Swynford and John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster, the ancestors of most of the British royal family. Set in the vibrant 14th century of Chaucer and the Black Death, the story features knights fighting in battle, serfs struggling in poverty, and the magnificent Plantagenets—Edward III, the Black Prince, and Richard II—who ruled despotically over a court rotten with intrigue. Within this era of danger and romance, John of Gaunt, the king’s son, falls passionately in love with the already married Katherine. Their affair persists through decades of war, adultery, murder, loneliness, and redemption. Anya Seton's vivid rendering of the lives of the Duke and Duchess of Lancaster makes Katherine an unmistakable classic.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2007 im Fachbereich Frauenstudien / Gender-Forschung, Note: 1,0, Humboldt-Universitat zu Berlin (Kulturwissenschaftliches Seminar), Veranstaltung: Das Unbewusste, 15 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In der vorliegenden Arbeit werde ich die Zusammenhange von Gehirn und Gesellschaft erortern. Dabei gehe ich von der These aus, dass ein umfassendes Verstandnis vom Gehirn und seiner Funktionsweise nur dann moglich ist, wenn man es im Zusammenwirken mit seiner Umwelt bzw. mit anderen Menschen betrachtet. Anhand von aktuellen Analysen aus der Neurobiologie und Psychoanalyse zum Unbewussten zeige ich, dass Wahrnehmung nur durch Intersubjektivitat und lebensgeschichtliche Lernprozesse erklarbar ist. Durch diese Perspektive stellt sich auch gleichzeitig die Frage nach der Rechtfertigung des Objektivitatsanspruchs, der in den Naturwissenschaften vorausgesetzt wird. Ich werde dahingehend argumentieren, dass in der Neurobiologie - entgegen der Auffassung einiger vieler HirnforscherInnen - trotz ihrer akribischen Arbeit nicht von Objektivierbarkeit, im Sinne von Wertfreiheit, die Rede sein kann. Schon allein unsere Sprache, die durch Internalisierung von kollektiven Normen gekennzeichnet ist, verbietet per se die Moglichkeit von absoluter Wertneutralitat. Schliesslich werde ich erortern, inwiefern die Naturwissenschaften an der Konstruktion von gesellschaftlichen Machtverhaltnissen beteiligt sind. Die feministische Naturwissenschaftsforschung versucht solche Zusammenhange aufzudecken, um zu zeigen, dass die Naturwissenschaft nicht wertneutral, sondern haufig politisch motiviert ist. Im funften und letzten Kapitel dieser Arbeit werde ich zeigen, wie die feministische Hirnforschung dabei behilflich ist, pseudowissenschaftliche Scheinrechtfertigungen von Geschlechterdifferenzen aufzustellen. Am Beispiel von Untersuchungen zu mannlicher Homosexualitat und zur Bilateralitat von F"

In James Joyce, Sexuality and Social Purity, Katherine Mullin offers a richly detailed account of Joyce's lifelong battle against censorship. Through prodigious archival research, Mullin shows Joyce responding to Edwardian ideologies of social purity by accentuating the 'contentious' or 'offensive' elements in his work. Ulysses, A Portrait and Dubliners each meticulously subvert purity discourse. This important and highly original book will change the way Joyce is read and offers crucial insights into the sexual politics of Modernism.

In this age of DNA computers and artificial intelligence, information is becoming disembodied even as the "bodies" that once carried it vanish into virtuality. While some marvel at these changes, envisioning consciousness downloaded into a computer or humans "beamed" Star Trek-style, others view them with horror, seeing monsters brooding in the machines. In How We Became Posthuman, N. Katherine Hayles separates hype from fact, investigating the fate of embodiment in an information age. Hayles relates three interwoven stories: how information lost its body, that is, how it came to be conceptualized as an entity separate from the material forms that carry it; the cultural and technological construction of the cyborg; and the dismantling of the liberal humanist "subject" in cybernetic discourse, along with the emergence of the "posthuman." Ranging widely across the history of technology, cultural studies, and literary criticism, Hayles shows what had to be erased, forgotten, and elided to conceive of information as a disembodied entity. Thus she moves from the post-World War II Macy Conferences on cybernetics to the 1952 novel Limbo by cybernetics aficionado Bernard Wolfe; from the concept of self-making to Philip K. Dick's literary explorations of hallucination and reality; and from artificial life to postmodern novels exploring the implications of seeing humans as cybernetic systems. Although becoming posthuman can be nightmarish, Hayles shows how it can also be liberating. From the birth of cybernetics to artificial life, How We Became Posthuman provides an indispensable account of how we arrived in our virtual age, and of where we might go from here.

To the extent that she is popularly known, Katherine Parr (1512–48) is the woman who survived King Henry VIII as his sixth and last wife. She merits far greater recognition, however, on several other fronts. Fluent in French, Italian, and Latin, Parr also began, out of necessity, to learn Spanish when she ascended to the throne in 1543. As Henry’s wife and queen of England, she was a noted patron of the arts and music and took a personal interest in the education of her stepchildren, Princesses Mary and Elizabeth and Prince Edward. Above all, Parr commands interest for her literary labors: she was the first woman to publish under her own name in English in England. For this new edition, Janel Mueller has assembled the four publications attributed to Parr—Psalms or Prayers, Prayers or Meditations, The Lamentation of a Sinner, and a compilation of prayers and Biblical excerpts written in her hand—as well as her extensive correspondence, which is collected here for the first time. Mueller brings to this volume a wealth of knowledge of sixteenth-century English culture. She marshals the impeccable skills of a textual scholar in rendering Parr’s sixteenth-century English for modern readers and provides useful background on the circumstances of and references in Parr’s letters and compositions. Given its scope and ambition, Katherine Parr: Complete Works and Correspondence will be an event for the English publishing world and will make an immediate contribution to the fields of sixteenth-century literature, reformation studies, women’s writing, and Tudor politics.
