Hello and welcome to "Gunsmoke and Mirrors," title and graphics courtesy of Sean Lindsay. The title may not be mine, but I like it. I suspect you have here my interests in popular culture (especially the western) and inwardness. Smoke and fog, mirror and lamp, clarity and opacity--all the little binaries that generate the faculties to act.
Interests and brief bibliography:
a. Interests: children's literature, literary and cultural theory, Romanticism, film history and film theory, gender studies
b. Some publications:
"For the Childlike: George MacDonald's Fantasies for Children" (Scarecrow Press, 1991)
"The Nimble Reader: Literary Theory and Children's Literature" (Twayne, 1996)
"A Little Princess: Gender and Empire" (Twayne, 1996)
"Voices of the Other: Children's Literature, Colonialism, Postcolonialism and Neo-colonialism" (Garland, forthcoming 1999)
Information about westerns can be found in the wild wild west.
Information about fantastic literature can be found in Wonderland.
These links can go on forever. A link that doesn't go anywhere.
