1. Lee, Chia-wei. Yearning for Significance in an Insignificant World: Womenâs Reading, Power, and Marriage in Charlotte Lennoxâs The Female Quixote.

Degree: Master, Foreign Language and Literature, 2008, NSYSU

My thesis aims to explore the conflict between bourgeois and romance ideologies in Charlotte Lennoxâs The Female Quixote in terms of womenâs reading, power, and marriage in the eighteenth century. In chapter one, I focus on Arabellaâs access to romantic fantasies, offering an overview of womenâs position and reading in bourgeois society. Through examining the societyâs attitude to and concerns with reading, we can see that in the bourgeois ideal women are voiceless and restrained within the domestic domain, the one that offers no opportunities for the significance that romance heroines enjoy. Also, both womenâs motives to read and the societyâs eagerness to prohibit it reflect the economical and capitalistic sides of the bourgeoisie. Then, Arabellaâs exclusive reading of romance makes her totally subject to it; the canonized romances become the female tradition for Arabella. By comparing the quasi-classicism of romance to the contemporaneity of novel, the discrepancy between Arabella and the outside world is clearly shown. She endeavors to yearn for significance in the prosaic reality which offers no opportunity. Consequently, chapter two examines Arabellaâs power on two levels. Arabella, trying to mediate the gap, constructs her romantic counter-reality with the help of the power of imagination. Arabella manipulates her surroundings to make them meet the requirements of the romantic world, which appears to be an autonomous domain governed by love, excluding the laws, morality, and secularity of the reality. Furthermore, in the love-ruled realm the power structure of bourgeois society seems to be reversed. Women have power over their submissive and constant suitors. The typical images of both genders are reversed. However, heroinesâ possession of power is at the expense of rejecting and denying female sexuality and desire. Therefore the autonomy and the reversal of power structure proposed by romance are actually illusive; the power only exists by sacrificing female subjectivity. In chapter three I will probe into the double-edged role marriage plays. The marriage between Arabella and Glanville can be seen as the compromise between romance and bourgeois ideologies. With the help of her manipulation of the reality, Arabellaâs marriage does exemplify the romantic ideal. Glanville is romantically presented as a hero performing countless actions to win his lover. Their marriage is depicted as an amatory union, which is the essential ending in romances wherein love is sanctified. On the other hand, the marriage ending also satisfies the concerns of middle-class society, wherein marriage is considered as a trade and bears an economic mission rather than connecting two lovers. Hence the marriage plot functions as a happy ending that settles the two confronting ideologies.

2. Mosley, Matthew. The Feminine Representation of Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois in Langston Hughes' Not Without Laughter.

Degree: MA, English, 2010, University of New Orleans

Langston Hughes' novel Not Without Laughter works within the historically narrow framework of African American uplift ideology. Hughes implies Booker T. Washington's racial uplift ideology from Up From Slavery within Aunt Hager Williams. In addition, Hughes implies W.E.B. DuBois' racial uplift ideology from Souls of Black Folk within Tempy Siles. In both characters, he criticizes the ideologies. In addition, the ideologies work toward an initial construction of masculinity for Sandy, the protagonist, and ultimately undermine an argument for gender equality. Advisors/Committee Members: Bryant, Earle V., Lackey, Kris, Steeby, Elizabeth.

3. Δημητρίου, Παναγιώτα. Η δυτική ευρωπαϊκή μεσαιωνική ιστορία στα ελληνόγλωσσα έντυπα: 1830 - 1914.

Degree: 2011, Ionian University; Ιόνιο Πανεπιστήμιο

Τhe object of the dissertation is the shift of part of the 19th and early 20th century intellect toward the medieval history of Western Europe. The primary material has been derived from research on journals published in Athens,Piraeus,Corfu, Zakynthos, Volos, Nicosia, Constantinople, Smyrne, Alexandria, Venice, Paris, Amsterdam, Oxford and Vraila between 1830 and the Balkan wars and it encompasses Emmanuel Rhoide's Pope Joan among other works. The objective of the dissertation is the comprehension and interpretation of scholars' aspirations as they turn to medieval West via romanticism, as well as those of various publications highlighting these topics. The methodology applied is that of presentation and documentation of the primary material. The topics selected for presentation and substantiation relate to the intellectual, social, economic and political pursuits of the newly-founded Greek society. The findings arising from the process of the medieval sources pertain to the propagation of western European principles and models in the post- revolutionary Greek society along with the vision for national integration of the Greek people. The acquisition of a European identity by the Greeks as well as the alignment of the Greek economy, justice, political and intellectual life with the track of Western Europe, the emergence of bourgeois ideology and the social integration of both the masses and women all constitute the scholars' key points. They attempt to structure the status of our country- which originated from Eastern history- through a cultural blending with Western Europe, in addition to shaping its national conscience as the creation of the revived by Greek spirit Europe, with a view to the expansion of the Greek borders towards the East as well as the materialization of the Great Idea. Furthermore, they stress the diachronic and synchronic unity among Greek people as a prerequisite for national integration asserting, on one hand, the restoration of the historic continuity that had been disturbed by Fallmerayer's theory, the diachronic presence of the Greek nation in the Greek region and on the other hand, the unity within this very region, expressed as a petition for the integration of unredeemed Greek regions in the national body. Therefore, in an era when national claims culminate throughout Europe, in the general atmosphere of separation and emancipation of the nations, the overall process of the emancipation of the Greek state- nation is recommended, that is, the quest for passages towards the implementation of the European model along with the manifestations of existential agonies for national integration.
