2. Trainor, Oliver. Don DeLillo's White Noise and the Postmodern Economics of Displacement .

Degree: University of Otago

The primary aim of this work is to investigate the definitively postmodern economy of Don DeLillo's novel, White Noise. Methodologically, this thesis creates a dialogue by comparatively analysing DeLillo's text, its critical and literary reception, and key theoretical texts produced from the same context, as to diagnose the underpinning historical processes which characterise the postmodern. The key theoretical works employed are from Jean Baudrillard, Jean-Francois Lyotard, Fredric Jameson, Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, and Nick Land, as these theorists have all been primarily concerned with symptomizing the nature of the postmodern world. The main argument made in this thesis is that the postmodern is the product of what I call an economy of displacement. By focusing on three fundamental concepts which recur throughout the novel and its reception, as well as the theoretical texts examined, I argue that the postmodern, the sublime, and capitalism are all defined by a shared economic process characterised by a perpetual, self-propelling, process that escalates and accelerates sociocultural dissolution and fragmentation. The primary conclusion drawn from this study is that DeLillo’s novel symptomizes an economic process that dissolves the geopolitical-existential status of the Human into obsolescence at an ever-accelerating rate, named as the postmodern. Advisors/Committee Members: Simmons, Rochelle (advisor).

3. Yu, Xiaoxi (Eileen). The Window in Virginia Woolf's Early Novels .

Degree: University of Otago

This thesis focuses on the window and the visual in Virginia Woolf's first three novels The Voyage Out (1915), Night and Day (1919) and Jacob's Room (1922). It examines how the window enables Woolf to experiment with modes of literary representation by drawing analogies with the visual arts. In proposing this argument, I aim to establish the relation between the way Woolf uses the window in these early works and in her later modernist style. Chapter One provides the background for this study. It introduces Woolf's relationship to the visual arts - painting, photography and the cinema, in particular. It also addresses key historical accounts of the window as a figurative device in literature and the arts, as well as in Woolf's literary criticism. Chapters Two and Three analyze the window in The Voyage Out and Night and Day as a metaphorical boundary between the real and imagined worlds of the protagonists. By exploring the visual possibilities of the window as a way to represent the protagonists' inner life, Woolf points to the limitations of the novels' conventional form, which conforms to Victorian realist traditions. Chapter Four treats the window as an analogue to Woolf's experimental form in Jacob's Room. Throughout the novel, Woolf represents the protagonist mostly through the narrator's external observation and other characters' impressions of him. In this respect, the window provides a model for the modes of seeing through which Woolf constructs the protagonist from the outside, and thus posits the same opposition between internal and external realities as in the earlier two novels. By tracing the window's role in these early works, I argue the window - as an important connection between the literary texts and modes of visual art - charts the shift in Woolf's engagement with realism. As such, it also marks her transition from Victorian to Modernist literary conventions. Advisors/Committee Members: Simmons, Rochelle (advisor).
