Transgressive Transcripts

Gender and Sexuality in Contemporary Chinese Canadian Women’s Writing


Bennett Yu-Hsiang Fu

Transgressive Transcripts examines the construction of women’s subjectivity and the textual production of Canadian female voices orchestrated in history, culture, ethnicity, and sexuality. The book, stressing the dissemination and re-inscription of femaleness and femininity in Chinese Canadian history, employs critical models that defy the sexual/textual imaginary of the Canadian literary scene. Four fields of study are conjoined: feminist theories of the body, gender and sexuality studies, women’s writing, and Asian North Amer¬ican studies. Analysing four writers, SKY Lee, Larissa Lai, Lydia Kwa, and Evelyn Lau, the book anchors its thematic and theoretical concern with female sexuality in the context of Chinese Canadian writing. Feminist narratives and gender politics in contemporary Asian North American literature are highlighted via the trope of ‘transgression’.

This collection of essays pursues two new approaches to Q, the speeches of Jesus paralleled in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke. The essays in Part One suggest that recent work in ethnopoetics, the ethnography of performance, and theory of verbal art (especially that of John Miles Foley) both complements and challenges standard approaches to the teaching of Jesus. They explore how Q speeches might be appreciated as oral performance that resonates with listeners in a community context by referencing Israelite popular tradition. The essays in Part Two examine how the work of anthropologist and political scientist James C. Scott on popular tradition, “the moral economy of the peasant,” and “hidden transcripts” may illuminate the social context and political implications of Q speeches. The contributors are David L. Barr, Joanna Dewey, Jonathan A. Draper, John Miles Foley, William R. Herzog II, Richard A. Horsley, Werner Kelber, Alan Kirk , Milton Moreland, and Vernon K. Robbins.

Introduction In this introduction I outline the importance that Hans-Georg Backhaus’s transcript of Adorno’s 1962 seminar on ‘Marx and the Basic Concepts of Sociological Theory’ has for shedding light on the relationship between Adorno’s critical theory and the critique of political economy

Hidden Transcripts and the Arts of Resistance

Applying the Work of James C. Scott to Jesus and Paul


Edited by Richard Horsley

The essays in this volume develop the highly suggestive insights and theory of James C. Scott—especially those related to patterns of domination and subordination, the role of religion in supporting or opposing the powerful, and the "arts of resistance" by the subordinated—to tackle key issues in the interpretation of Jesus and Paul. All the contributors implicitly or explicitly assume a stance sympathetic with subordinated peoples of the past and present. While all pursue primarily critical literary, historical, and social analysis on New Testament texts in historical contexts, some also examine illuminating historical or contemporary comparative materials. In addition, some even find Scott useful in critical self-examination of scholarly motives, stances, and approaches in relation to texts and their uses. The contributors are Allen Dwight Callahan, Warren Carter, Neil Elliott, Susan M. Elliott, Erik Heen, William R. Herzog II, Richard A. Horsley, Cynthia Briggs Kittredge, and Gerald West.

This paper focuses on the technical and methodological issues involved in using data available on the internet as a basis for quantitative analyses of Present-day English. For this purpose, I concentrate on the creation of a specialized corpus of spoken data and outline the steps necessary to convert a large number of publicly available CNN transcripts into a format which is compatible with standard corpus tools. As an illustration of potential uses of such data, the second part of my paper then presents a sample analysis of the intensifier so. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of the advantages and limitations of this type of internet-derived data for corpus linguistic analysis.

The article analyzes the dramatic events surrounding Joseph Brodsky’s trial in Leningrad 1964, focusing on Frida Vigdorova’s transcript of the trial record. Some of these events are not fully known in Russia, and many are either totally unknown or misunderstood in the West. The transcript Vigdorova recorded played a central role in the post-trial collective protests by Soviet intelligentsia, protests unprecedented in the post-Stalin era. It became one of the very first human-rights documents in the ussr and a key contribution to samizdat. The article also treats the Soviet authorities’ persecution of young representatives of the literary intelligentsia, and it highlights Vigdorova’s successful efforts to intercede for several of those individuals before the emergence of the Brodsky case.

In Chinese criminal procedure, the issues of illegally obtained evidence and witnesses not appearing in courtroom are under fire, which is partly rooted in the fact that the Chinese courts do not limit the admissibility of pre-trial testimonial transcripts in judicial practice, zealously pursue the “truth of fact” while disregard defendant’s right to confront. Focusing on the admissibility of pre-trial testimonial transcripts, the article will first analyze the current legislations and judicial practice in China, then from a comparative perspective introduce the corresponding written testimony rules of the International Criminal Tribunal (Court) which distinguishes the admissibility of different categories of written testimony, with an aim of both protecting the criminal defendant’s right of confrontation and pursuing truth in fact-finding. The practice in International Criminal Tribunal (Court) provides a good starting point for China to rethink its own practice and learn from.
