1. Valencia, Andrew. <i>The Lonely Empire</i>.

Degree: Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing, English Language and Literatures, 2015, University of South Carolina

This creative manuscript contains ten original short stories dealing with themes of alienation, imperialism, and cultural intersectionality. Though they are all influenced, in one way or another, by ideas of cultural and sociopolitical relevance, they are to be read and viewed primarily as stories, i.e., as self-contained exercises in character, plot, and language that can be appreciated for their artistic merits as well as their academic contributions. The diverse settings of the stories, ranging from Ancient Greece to Central California and from Asia to Latin America, are a reflection of the author‘s own diverse cultural experiences. In one story, a young college dropout follows her aging partner to an Ernest Hemingway look-alike contest. In another, a disabled former serviceman becomes obsessed with the weather and the threat of climate change. The final story of the collection takes place in a speculative, futuristic version of the lost continent of Atlantis. Taken collectively, these ten stories offer unique and sometimes startling insights into the troubling legacies of culture and history, and into our increasingly globalized world. Advisors/Committee Members: Elise Blackwell.

2. Hornstein, Sarah Shoshana. On Alienation and Imperialism: Synthesizing the Work of Herbert Marcuse and Samir Amin.

Degree: PhD, Sociology, 2019, York University

This dissertation builds on the idea that there is much to be gained by bringing Western Marxism and Marxist theories of imperialism into engagement with each other through synthesis of the work of two key figures: Herbert Marcuse and Samir Amin. Using Marcuse to supplement Amin (and vice versa) provides for a more complete understanding of capitalist imperialism on a world scale. This lends Marcuse an applicability/relevance currently denied to him while also allowing for an updating of his theory that accounts for changes in the operation of capitalism since his time. It also enhances Amins work insofar as it can be used to augment his analysis of the capitalist centres and their relation to the periphery. A key objective of the analysis this dissertation undertakes is to produce a more robust theoretical approach capable of increasing our understanding of the world and positioning us to better meet the challenges posed for human emancipation from an exploitative, alienated existence of suffering. Chapter 1 provides the necessary background for engaging with both Amins and Marcuses analyses of alienation by focusing on the work of Marx, Lukcs, and Freud. Chapter 2 engages in explicit discussion of Amins analysis of the world capitalist system and its development. Chapter 3 is concerned with Marcuses work and begins with discussion of the emergence of one dimensional thinking and technological rationality before turning to Marcuses analysis of alienation. The final chapter demonstrates the compatibility of Amins and Marcuses analyses and concludes by pointing toward some possibilities for future research. Advisors/Committee Members: Anderson, Karen (advisor).
