1. Wang, Jen-Hui. Elizabeth Gaskell and Education as Seen in her Short Stories.

Degree: Master, Foreign Language and Literature, 2014, NSYSU

Elizabeth Gaskell is a notable Victorian novelist, philanthropist and biographer. Her conditions-of-England novels Mary Barton and North and South that draw on the condition of the working classes have been very influential at her time. However, being a caring mother and a ministerâs wife herself, Mrs. Gaskell also paid great concerns with educational issues in her works. Her short stories reveal her criticism of the Victorian educational system. She advocates for free education for all. The present thesis explores Mrs. Gaskellâs presentations of social problems such as prostitution, witchhunts, and juvenile delinquency at her time and her employment of education as their solution. It explores how Mrs. Gaskell utilizes her writing, especially periodical short stories, to change social values and to advocate reforms. Chapter 1 discusses Mrs. Gaskellâs preoccupation with the issue of fallen women in Victorian society and her belief in education and profession as the best solutions to this problem, taking the examples of Ruth, âLizzie Leigh,â âThe Old Nurseâs Story,â and âThe Poor Clare.â Chapter 2 examines Mrs. Gaskellâs concerns with social victims such as the âpsychoticsâ in the terms of bewitchment in her âThe Poor Clare,â âLois the Witch,â and the mentally challenged in âThe Well of Pen-Morfa,â and âHalf a Life-Time Agoâ and her suggestion of using scientific education to help them. Chapter 3 focuses on Mrs. Gaskellâs interests in certain social outcasts such as illegitimate children, juvenile delinquents and criminalsâ childrenâs miseries and her suggestion to solve their problem through education in her works A Dark Nightâs Work, My Lady Ludlow, âRight at Last,â âThe Heart of John Middleton.â Advisors/Committee Members: Rudolphus Teeuwen (chair), Su-juen Yan (chair), Shu-Fang Lai (committee member).

2. Lin, Yu-tong. Masquerade of Lameness: On George Gordon Byronâs Body Performance in Byromania and The Deformed Transformed.

Degree: Master, Foreign Language and Literature, 2016, NSYSU

Seen by many as the first modern celebrity, George Gordon Byron was a world-famous poet with a visible impairment. With ableist prejudice permeating the visual discourse of Byromania, his disability identity, which was established as discontinuous with the Byronic charisma, has been long neglected or devalued until the recent critical effort of Disability Studies. By the time when Byronâs popularity had exposed him to the public eye to the extent of visual excess, the hypervisibility of his physical presence in the fan culture inevitably coincided with the heightened visibility of his birth defect in the contemporary ableist context. Since the Years of Fame, Byronâs body performance had been documented by mass spectators, many of whom adopted the ableist representational system and masqueraded the celebrity poet with the negative stereotyping of disability. In contrast to the disability discrimination scattered over the mass spectatorship of Byromania, Byronâs last dramatic fragment, The Deformed Transformed (1824), could be viewed as a rebellious response to the reading publicâs generic expectation for an ideal body imagined to be Byronic. Moreover, it also serves as Byronâs textual masquerade of his transformative impulse to reform disability images. Combining Disability Studies with Biographical Criticism, this essay explores how Byronâs disabled body has been masqueraded by the mass spectatorship of Byromania as well as how the poet reframes disability experiences with the transgressive performance of a deformed body in The Deformed Transformed.

3. Chen, Suelien. Marketing Terror: Gothic Spectrality in The Mysteries of Udolpho, The Monk, Frankenstein, and Melmoth, the Wanderer.

Degree: PhD, Foreign Language and Literature, 2004, NSYSU

Abstract Gothic fiction captivates adults probably because it always reminds them of childhood and the irrational and naïve responses to the invisible beings. In fact, fear initiated by terror intrinsic in ghost tales is not aimed to suppress desire, but turns to be an access for people to recognize their suppressed desires. Is Gothic fiction worth canonizing, deserving of the name of âliteratureâ when Gothic fiction tends to be associated with immature fear and desire, and for most people, it is particularly suited to the temporal possession for passing leisure and boring time, and then it is piled up even around the corner of the lavatory? My dissertation, however, starts with these pejorative terms: primitiveness, childhood, fantasy, terror and disposable commodity. Truly, this kind of popular literature appeals to great numbers of people, influencing a large portion of the population in the world, but is not credited accordingly. My intention is to discover the valuable relic that Gothic fiction has left among the contemptuous debris that the moralists and scholars have thrown at it. The strategy I adopt is to represent the milieu where Gothic fiction rises and falls in a historical and cultural perspective. Abroad, the American and French Revolutions break out in tandem, which instigate heated debates over ârevolution,â and âhistoryâ in Britain. And the Reign of Terror in the aftermath of the French Revolution shocks the English monarch and aristocracy. The military conflicts between Britain and France increase. Domestically, the Industrial Revolution brings great impact to English society, precipitating the rise of the bourgeoisie and working class. Coincidentally, this literature of terror becomes the allegory of cultural and political convulsions that rack this nation. And the English people, especially the rising class, find the expression of their anxieties and expectations in Gothic fiction. In addition to reconstructing the network of political, social, aesthetic strains that are integrated into Gothic fiction, I attempt to depict how power shifts, changing the relationships of different factions and ranks of English society when commerce gradually dominates in the activity of literature. As is noted, Gothic fiction is conceived to be more than an innocent enchantment, or a palliative composed of nostalgia for childhood, or a consumable pastime. To indicate how Gothic fiction is rooted in the depth of English culture, I exemplify four English classics as well as bestsellers, and scrutinize them with the concept of âspectralizationâ together with the theory of psychoanalysis. The four English Gothic novels I decided on are Ann Radcliffeâs The Mysteries of Udolpho, Matthew Lewisâs The Monk, Mary Shelleyâs Frankenstein, and Charles Maturinâs Melmoth, the Wanderer. With the spectralization of women, sexuality, ambition, and life in individual works, I endeavor to make the latent truth manifest. Thus, the visible and invisible states of existence are juxtaposed. These motifs indeed pertain to the… Advisors/Committee Members: Yu-san Yu (chair), Hsiao-yu Sun (chair), Chiun-Hsiung Lai (chair), Su-juen Yan (chair), Rudolphus Teeuwen (committee member).
