1. West, Fleurette. Soft walls / hard spaces: an(other) narrative for Eileen Gray’s E.1027.

Degree: MFA, Fine Arts, 2015, University of Southern California

This thesis uncovers Eileen Gray's French modernist villa E.1027 as a site that performs resistance sensibilities using queer feminist traditions of transmission. Through a reading of Eileen Gray's undermining of Corbusien principles by means of non-linear bodily interpretations, I seek to invoke an(other) narrative space for E.1027 that suggests a feminine repositioning of its phallocentric story. Advisors/Committee Members: Fine, Jud (Committee Chair), Madani, Tala (Committee Member), Hudson, Suzanne P. (Committee Member).

2. Boulanger-Comte, Bénédicte. L'écriture de la mobilité dans l'oeuvre narrative de Marguerite Yourcenar : The writing of mobility in Marguerite Yourcenar's narrative works.

Degree: Docteur es, Littérature française, 2015, Poitiers

Les ailleurs géographiques recherchés et célébrés dans l'oeuvre de Marguerite Yourcenar, en particulier dans les contes, les romans, les chroniques familiales et les essais, témoignent de la mise en scène d'une inextinguible quête de mobilité. L'analyse stylistique, sociologique et philosophique de cet éloge du mouvement physique et de l'élan intellectuel dont il est indissociable permet d'appréhender la création et l'écriture yourcenariennes sous un angle nouveau. Une éthique du voyage, expression privilégiée d'un mode de vie en mouvement, est diversement développée dans l'oeuvre en fonction du choix générique opéré : si le voyager est accès à une forme de sagesse dans la perspective didactique du conte, les bénéfices du déplacement en termes de connaissances sont plus amplement déclinés dans l'espace polymorphique du roman, et sont associés à l'apprentissage intellectuel et existentiel dans les textes à caractère autobiographique. Si le péril de l'immobilité hante irrémédiablement l'écriture de Yourcenar, le dépassement de la fixité, qu'elle soit strictement spatiale ou davantage sociale, met parallèlement en lumière une vision de l'épanouissement humain. Parmi ces incarnations rêvées de la mobilité, la femme s'impose comme une figure emblématique du mouvement. Dans les récits et les essais, dont l'une des finalités est précisément de s'interroger sur le dynamisme féminin, la capacité émancipatrice de personnages littéraires ou d'êtres réels peut alors se lire au regard de l'audace de leurs trajectoires spatiale ou mentale. Si la mobilité est en soi un acte signifiant, déceler la présence d'une symbolique des espaces parcourus qui ont abondamment nourri l'oeuvre permet de dresser une carte géographique existentielle qui éclaire le parcours artistique et spirituel de l'écrivain, en révélant les facettes qu'a revêtues son désir de connaissance du monde et de soi.

The distant geographical areas looked for and celebrated in Marguerite Yourcenar's works, in particular in tales, novels, family chronicles and essays, reveal the elaboration of a quest of mobility. The stylistic, sociological and philosophic analysis of this praise of physical movement and intellectual vigour with which it is linked , allows to conceive Yourcenar's creation and writing in a new way. A philosophy of travelling, as a privileged expression of lifestyle in movement, is variously developed in these texts according to the choice of the literary genre : if travelling is devoted to a form of wisdom in the didactic prospect of the tale, the profits of movement in terms of knowledge are more emphasized in the polymorphic space of the novel, and are associated to the intellectual and existential learning in texts with autobiographical character. If the danger of immobility, strictly in a spatial or more social meaning, has haunted the writing of Yourcenar, the way to overcome this danger shows a vision of human self-fulfillment. Among these fantasized embodiments of mobility, the woman stands out as an iconic figure of movement. In narratives and…

3. Aslam, Feriyal Amal. Choreographing [in] Pakistan: Indu Mitha, Dancing Occluded histories in "The Land of the Pure".

Degree: Culture & Performance Studies, 2012, UCLA

This critical biography of Indu Mitha, a Pakistani dancer and choreographer, lays out an alternate, creative history of sixty-four years of post-Partition Pakistan. Her life and work enable choreographing an occluded space on stage and beyond, which I call space of hope  – a space of alterity, a place where narratives countering the nation state boundaries enforced by the 1947 Partition of British India into the three independent states of Pakistan, India, and Bangladesh (1971). This space is not a post-colonial one, but is based on a longer shared historical specificity of South Asia. Indu Mitha's life and work enable this journey into occluded spaces, into an alternate history of sixty-four years of post-Partition Pakistan. These spaces of hope are foci to probing broader questions about the place of the outliers, i.e. Muslims in India, and non-Muslims and "non-Pakistanis" in Pakistan (Post 1971), in the aftermath of the 1947 Partition of India. This dissertation stages the untold history of these minority voices of classical dancers and musicians in Pakistan, and in the process questions whether their marginal statuses are due to factors connected to the aftermath of Partition, or to a redundant pre-colonial baggage, or both.By taking a creative approach to writing a shared history of Pakistan, India and Bangladesh beyond Partition, this dissertation presents controversial, contested histories that are closer to the ground realities of people in the region. Methodology involved triangulating Indu's bharata natyam, kathak and Uday Shankar choreographies with her life history, parallel to key moments of South Asian history from the early twentieth century to the first decade of the twenty-first century. This new "creative approach" brings together, for the first time, cutting edge work in the fields of post-colonial histories and Partition aftermath studies with dance history scholarship, in particular critical bharata natyam studies. This project uses the rich lyric mode and story-telling tradition of bharata natyam, syncrethic aspects of kathak, and the creative style of Indu's Uday Shankar repertoire to narrate alternative histories that have been silenced and/or ignored in official narratives. These histories call for a rethinking of the occluded inclusive and secular vision of founding father Jinnah as protector-general of the minorities.
