This paper examines the seemingly ambivalent relation between two concepts, cyborg and corporeality, through an analysis of the film Her. Moravec’s proposition that human identity is essentially an informational pattern rather than an embodied enactment is realized in the film through a non-material being: the cyborg Samantha. Corporeality, the core concept of corporeal feminism which was succeeded to cyberfeminism, has been regarded as incompatible with cyborg such as an artificial intelligence without material body. In this study, the following theses are questioned: whether gender identity still remains even after the material body has vanished; whether the theory of post-gender can be the alternative and utopian prospect for the future beyond gender binary as Donna Haraway argued in CyborgManifesto; and whether gender inequality would be removed when all human beings become posthuman, as Catherine Hayles proposes. As a result, this paper demonstrates that gender binary and the concept of the corporeal body exist persistently through cyborg beings.

Marian Forrester, the heroine in Willa Cather's A Lost Lady, departs from the independent pioneer women portrayed in the author's earlier prairie novels in the sense that she poses as a marker of her savior husband's wealth and social standing in the community. While Marian performs graciously as a wife and hostess of a respectable, aristocratic household, her sensual attraction is emphasized in her hospitality to male guests from Denver and male adolescents from the community. Drawing attention to the heroine's sexuality and the communal narrator's eroticized gaze, this essay examines how Marian becomes an object of admiration, envy, and surveillance in the community and how the communal obsession with the heroine is complicated in sexual and class categories. Throughout the novel, Cather shows, the heroine is redefined socially and sexually by the collective narrator reflecting diverse groups of the community. Ultimately the essay argues that Marian's sexuality serves as “a power to live” and to reclaim her life. The fact that the news of her death is given only indirectly in the epilogue, and only in a doubly-delayed manner, shows that her death is not considered a sort of poetic justice, and holds therefore no implications of punishment for her sexuality.

2버지니아 울프의 『델러웨이 부인』과 존 쿳시의 『포』에 나타난 침묵하는 작가와 타자

This study examines the question of the authorial authority of the early twentieth-century female writer Virginia Woolf and the contemporary male South African writer J. M. Coetzee. For these two authors, the ideal writer is the one who is emptied of her or his own beliefs, assertions, and prejudices. This paper argues that some of Woolf's and Coetzee's feminist narrative techniques, questioning the authority of the white female characters, Clarissa Dalloway and Susan Barton, serve to blur the boundaries between the Other and I in Mrs Dalloway and Foe. The characters' failures to restore the silence of the Others is noteworthy because the Others' independent resistance through their bodies and silences, paradoxically, subverts the dominant discourses and thereby makes the texts into homes, spaces of mediated communication for the oppressed Others. Hence, we can find the aesthetic and ethical significance of these two novels in that they urge us to share the pain of the Others and assume the responsibility for it voluntarily.

Two different, but correlated ways of capturing “she(s)” are explored in two separate frames of “time.” In Nights at the Circus, Angela Carter exercises her magical literary skill to stop and extend the moment, giving individuals the opportunity to have their own “proper time,” a time interval between two events in the theory of relativity, in which their singular existences are vividly crystallized as they fly through their own “world lines.” Moreover, within this “movable midnight feast,” the “bastard offspring of Father Time” share bodies and spirits, and indulge in romance commensurate with each other's metabolism. In our experiential world, however, we are inevitably bound to Newton's absolute timeline. Therefore, as illustrated in Jeanette Winterson's book The Passion, even as we try to “box” up those who are our future and past into a particular moment, such attempts always fail as those whom we try to capture slip away between our fingers with the passing of time. As we see in Winterson's passion for writing, one futilely yearns to capture others and make a story in the present. Only passion places us at a distant locus, and we helplessly try to contact those who remain unreachable in a forever-collapsing series of dominoes.

4판옵티콘 권력에 대한 미혼모의 저항: 이창래의 『만조의 바다 위에서』와 포크너의 『팔월의 빛』의 여성 인물

On Such a Full Sea (2014) provides difficulties for readers to analyze the character of Fan because her story is told through the collective voice of Fan's fellow B-Mor laborers with openly unreliable omniscience. Fan is often viewed as a passive character who has little power to change her dystopian world and is just trying to find her missing boyfriend (also the father of her unborn child). This paper analyzes Fan by comparing her with Lena Grove in Faulkner's Light in August (1932), who is also often denigrated as a bovine earth mother or mythologized as an earth goddess. This study calls into question such views, because when Fan and Lena are viewed in tandem, they can be clearly seen to share a strong longing for freedom and agency to change their fate. As unwed mothers, Fan and Lena are doubly limited in their worlds. Possessing pregnant docile bodies, both of them are under the surveillance of the panoptic gaze and bio-power in the Foucauldian sense. They succeed in crossing the boundaries set by the panoptic bio-power by deliberately performing the role of women inscribed as in the cult of true womanhood (for Lena) or as in the model minority myth (for Fan). Their common primary goal, however, is not to find the beloved but to attain freedom to navigate in the world.

Thelma and Louise (dir. Ridley Scott, 1991) incorporates the conventions of various film genres. This paper especially concentrates on the elements of the Western in this film. The Western has iconic status in American film culture and is a quintessentially male genre. It is the model for all the later male action genres, some of which are known to have contributed to building America's national image. Thelma and Louise, however, featuring two female outlaws, subverts the convention of the Western, and provides an insight into the constructed nature of the myth behind the traditional Western hero. At the same time, it prevents spectators from identifying with the female protagonists, who are imperfect and merely “perform” masculinity. By subverting the familiar genre and creating unfamiliar spectatorship, this film implicitly critiques the male-centeredness of the popular American film genre and its roles in disseminating dominant ideologies through the identification process.

This essay examines the extent to which women were engaged with early modern literary culture by tracing women printers, publishers, and booksellers, the female book trade professionals who have received little attention in traditional literary criticism. Ever since Virginia Woolf mused on the female absence in early modern literary history, feminist scholars have concentrated on finding women's literary properties that have fallen into oblivion. Critical attention, however, has been disproportionately accorded extraordinary women authors and their literary achievements, a focus that has obliterated the literary contributions ordinary women made at important stages of textual production, transmission, and reception in early modern England. Finding these long-lost women and their material properties is a way to take into account the fuller range and scope of early modern women's literary contribution. Paying attention to the role of women in the book trade requires us to think afresh what literature is, how to define women's texts, and how to explain the material conditions that shaped women's literary and cultural practices. It also asks us to rethink our own critical perspective and methodology so that we can address in a less biased way the histories of women and literature and of material culture. In this essay, I offer an analysis of the books produced by some prolific women in the sixteenth-century English book trade, such as Catherine van Ruremund, Elizabeth Pickering/Redman, Joan Orwin, and Joan Broome, who have received less attention than they deserve. Topics include: material and social conditions that influenced women's involvement in the early modern book trade; genre and books produced by women and the social implications thereof; and the social networks in which women stationers were situated.

Even though critically acclaimed as one of New Zealand's greatest writers, David Ballantyne, a literary figure with considerable skills and coherence of vision, has been disregarded until recently. Likewise, his coming-of-age story, Sydney Bridge Upside Down (1968), has been out of print for thirty years but is called one of the great New Zealand literary masterpieces. While introducing Ballantyne, who is unknown to Korean readers, this paper explores his novel, Sydney Bridge Upside Down, which, set in an abandoned slaughterhouse, describes the strange, unpredictable, and sinister story of a New Zealand boy on the edge of the world. It is narrated by the faux-innocent voice of the pre-adolescent boy, Harry, disguising a series of killings in both a remote country and a busy city in which killing, sexual temptation, and violence are overwhelmingly mingled. Its plot is mysterious, with dreamlike stream of consciousness, a general air of suspicion, and a dark sense of humor. By focusing on his fairy tale madness and untamed childhood fantasy related to women in a forbidden and dangerous place, this paper characterizes the extremely troubled young Harry with his burgeoning sexuality and jealousy as a heroic monster who tries to save “a beautiful short-sighted girl from being captured by a hairy monster,” referring to his Mum escaping the country and his cousin Catherine escaping the city.
