Sherman Alexie, the Spokane Indian writer, draws early ideological sketches for Native American economic and cultural restoration in The Summer of Black Widows and One Stick Song, collections of poems, essays, and minimalism proses. He describes desperate conditions on reservations like diabetes, poverty, alcoholic addictions, and violence, which are followed by his unlimited and pragmatic suggestions to overcome those predicaments. Cultural recovery is one thing, and economic restoration is another. To combine the two agendas together, Alexie proposes to claim the ownership of 'Indian' related cultural products, to provide traditional Native American ceremonies for non-Indian visitors seeking for haven, and to establish casinos on reservations. He expects his blueprints could stimulate the cultural and economic exchanges between Native people and white Americans, so that Indians will gradually be happy to modify their old-fashioned Indianness to contemporary one. To have all his promising schemes fulfilled, Alexie emphasizes Indians' receptive approaches to American capitalism, expecting they gradually customize it for Native American capitalism.

2Racial Impostor Syndrome and Asian American Racial In/Visibility in Chang-Rae Lee's Native Speaker

Chang-Rae Lee's 1995 novel Native Speaker presents the reader with a now-universalized story of the racial minority alienation through its Korean American protagonist Henry Park. Yet the article examines the novel's unique perception of this story of an ethnic minority man who is troubled with a perpetual sense of fraudulence and non-beloning in his role and performance in America. The pivotal theme of this article is the in/visibility through which the protagonist's racialized subjectivity manifests. Reading alongside the notion of racial invisibility in Ralph Ellison's 1952 novel Invisible Man, the article examines how Lee's revision unravels the convoluted issues of race and ethnicity in the contemporary U.S. The investigation of the novel's representation of racial in/visibility uses Bourdieu's social theory as an interpretive framework alongside Keevak's study of the history of racialization to examine the normalized whiteness. The consquent dominance of language governed by racial grammar (Bonilla-Silva) and the sense of racial imposture and non-belonging mark the novel's depictions of the damage caused by the problem of race.

Sionil Jose's Ermita is a work that reflects and critically reproduces the social problems of exploitation, political corruption, and economic inequality of the colonial empire in the background of modern and contemporary history of the Philippines. “Ermita” refers to a female protagonist who was abandoned from the family, and at the same time, refers to an entertainment city in the Philippines that has been ruined by the WW2. Due to the cooperation between colonial powers, ruling classes and intellectuals, the city of Ermita is descried as a place of despair without any hope and possibility of resuscitation. Jose focuses on Philippine subjectivity, poverty, and women's issues, re-employing Ermita from the space robbed by capital and violence to various living spaces where people live their lives. Jose discusses the reproducibility of Philippine cities and countries as well as rerecognition of “otherized” sex work, including the main character's prostitution. In this article, I will analyze how Ermita is reforming her subject, city, and nation against the masculine ideology of colonial imperialism.

This paper proposes to illuminate Beckett's polyphonic musicality as multi-layered meaning structure. The concept of polyphony literally means multiple voices.
In the musical context alone, the meaning of absurdity originally means 'uncoordinated.' The concept of music seeking harmony seems closer to contradictory meanings than to mutually matched terms. The two concepts of conflicting meanings, 'harmony' and 'absurdity', can rather imply to some extent the connection between Beckett's works and music. This is because Beckett's plays show a tendency to lack plots more than any other absurd plays and present the artist's insight into human conditions in a fairly polyphonic way instead of a straight forward development method.
In other words, the characters' lines seem to be meaningless excretion, but overall, they gradually convey the theme and meaning while stimulating the audience's emotions through structural devices such as repetition and symmetry. This method is similar to polyphonic music using counterpoint.

This paper explores the different ways Sally Rooney's Normal People deconstructs the nationalist inflections inhered in the Irish literary tradition, a deconstruction which accordingly reveals new postnationality concerns. As one of the preeminent literary talents of this early 21st century, Rooney grew up during the rise of the Celtic Tiger and after fall - in short, she witnessed first-hand how Ireland survived the debt crisis to become the developed, open society that it is today. Postnationalism calls for a cosmopolitan solidarity beyond the affective ties of nationhood, language, place, and heritage. This alteration is part and parcel of the process of globalization; thus it corresponds with both the modern Irish national identity and the new types of literariness reflected in Normal People. By suffusing her writing with an artful, internationalized language style, Rooney transcends the confined traditional Irish narrative of old. Moreover, her supernational motifs allow for a sustained postnational critique of neoliberalism. This is especially cogent in how she describes the way digital natives are both transnationally linked and simultaneously haunted by boundaryless, instantaneous information. To these ends, Normal People breaks from traditional Irish national literary forms to look at how the universalized series of abstract norms that dominate our digital era present new opportunities, and new problems.

In the 21st century society called the hyper-connected era, globalization and technological innovation are key drivers of socioeconomic change, and so many people share the most private and intimate details of their lives with the world. In this situation, it is very likely that something is interfering with the trajectory of online sharing.
In this era when science and technology play a major role in the real world, it goes without saying that it is very important to use science and technology wisely in order for mankind to build a better world. The question is how it is possible to make wise use of 21st century science and technology which is so complex that it cannot be viewed in its entirety and thus is almost out of control. Therefore, in order to gain insight into the unpredictability of the 21st century society and seek alternatives, this thesis tries to analyze David Pledger's play K (2002) from the perspective of allegorical representation of the 'global brain' and 'mind uploading' that are predicted as a virtual future technology.
First of all, this thesis examines the term allegory, a representative literary device of Western literature, and then reviews the overall plot of the work K and several domestic and foreign research materials on K. Next, I would like to predict what will happen to the future society through the allegorical representation of 'Global Brain' and 'Mind Uploading' dramatized in K, and remind you of the fact that we must critically question the institutions and cultural frameworks that shape our technology.

Virginia Woolf's Jacob's Room (1922) has the theme of how to deal with the loss of the loved ones during the World War I and properly mourn them. Following the theoretical leads of Jacque Derrida, Sigmund Freud and Judith Butler, this essay investigates political function of Woolf's melancholic language of mourning. Derrida's process of mourning―that is dependent on his concept of différance―somewhat dissents from Freudian successful mourning process. Although the act of identifying with the loved, yet, lost ones and constantly mourning them is neither healthy nor natural to Freud, Derrida criticizes Freudian 'successful' mourning process, that is without melancholic attachment with the deceased, as a violent act that shuts down our connections to them. This paper investigates how Woolf and Derrida both propose the act of melancholic remembrance of the lost as an 'impossible' yet 'potent' political act and further demand for the new type of language for the allegorical remembrance of the others. Derrida's mourning always accompanies the ghost that haunts us and it appears in the form of 'repetition' in language, preceding its origin. Woolf in Jacob's Room, similarly encourages us to be haunted by the ghosts of the past and learn to remember their traces, the traces of being ghost-written in order to properly mourn them.

Memory is a very important foundation and essential element for someone who exists in the world to live his or her life, be distinguished from others as an individual, and create his or her own traits and characteristics. Through what an individual experiences and remembering those experiences, his or her life can be colored, affecting his or her life. As such, memory and the existence of an individual are closely connected with each other. If a memory that can express a person's experiences in words is not formed, how will it affect the individual's self-awareness or survival? In that case, questions may be raised as to whether it is possible to have relationships with others as well.
In this paper, I examine the relationship between memory and an individual's identity and the characteristics of declarative memory and nondeclarative memory in The Man Without a Shadow of which subject is influenced by the real case of an amnesiac, employing the brain science and memory theory in Permanent Present Tense. In addition, I explore how the protagonist of the text, Eli, who has a problem in converting short-term memory to long-term memory, can establish a relationship with others while living in the present. In particular, I focus on the relationship between Eli, the subject, and Margot, the experimenter.

In Monty Python and the Holy Grail, a loose parody film of Arthurian legend set in AD 934, an unidentified medieval knight slays a contemporary historian and King Arthur and his knights are arrested as murder suspects by contemporary cops. While the film has been analyzed by numerous fans, critics, and scholars, the riddle of this unique and transcendent time frame has yet to be solved. The paper examines the film's one-dimensional temporality as an alternative model of history in terms of Michel de Certeau's critique of traditional historiography. According to de Certeau, western history has been obsessed with 'death,' a metaphor for the historian's severance of the contemporary era from the previous age based on difference. This conscious effort to differentiate the present from the past has often resulted in the suppression of continuity and similarities between the two. Monty Python and the Holy Grail presents a stimulating counter-example of this historiographic tendency with an illogical and flat narrative structure where the Middle Ages and modernity coalesce. Rather than a critique of past society and culture, the film is a satire of the continuity between the Middle Ages and contemporary England, exemplified by the subsistence of monarchy and Christianity in the country. With the parallel structure, the film does not only provoke the audience's awareness of modernity's debt to the Middle Ages but also challenges the linear and progressive understanding of human history.
