Beyond Dis-Ease Positive Female Aging against the Cult of Invalidism in Ellen Glasgow’s Last Two Novels Emma Domínguez-Rué The ‘Angelas’ of Miss Glasgow’s later novels would more fully illustrate the causal connections between the moribund chivalric tradition (especially in its Victori- an southern form), evasive idealism, the sheltered life, feminine invalidism, and commonplace feminine tyranny through the solicitation of sympathy. (Raper, Without Shelter 224-25) In Without Shelter: the Early Career of Ellen Glasgow, Julius Rowan Raper aptly reflects

The locus of our dis-ease Narratives of family life in the age of Alzheimer’s LUCY BURKE Alzheimer’s and the distance between par- ents and children were both diseases of contemporary life, unlikely to go away. (Hegarty 1995: 132) The specter of Alzheimer’s disease (whether its legitimacy as a category is accepted or contested) dominates contemporary popular cultural discourse around both aging and dementia. The historical trajectory of this diagnosis, from its initial description in 1901 by Alois Alzheimer as ‘a peculiar dis- ease process of

They thought you were hurting yourself.’ […] Her eyes opened slowly. She surveyed the scratched and torn flesh on her arms. ‘I did all of this to myself?’ ‘No,’ he said. […] ‘Who is doing this to me?’ She looked past Ezroh to the corners of the room. Leah looked at her from one, her face concerned. Little Leah? […] But as she gripped his hand, she saw Aki. She

Policies, Creative Industries, and Media Consumers, edited by Noboku Kawashima and Hye-Kung Lee, looks at the topics of national cultural policies and urban strategies in Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, and Singapore; Asian creative indust- ries; and demand, reception, and engagement of Asian media consumers. The international roster of contributors, mostly Asian, makes the volu- me a welcome addition to the literature. Despite globalization, technolo- gy, and the ease of mobility our world, in general, has enjoyed (up until the current pandemic), there are still

experience interwoven into the design of digital maps can also be understood through the machine zone. The map allows for the user to substi- tute complex thought processes and cognitive unease for a repeated interaction with their physical reality through a pleasant mantle of the familiar. Familiarity, through a sense of cognitive ease, is often interpreted as “truthfulness” by the mind (Lazarsfeld/Berelson/Gaudet 1944; Lazarsfeld/Merton 1948). Familiar actions also have a causal link to affect, meaning that a sense of mastery from performing a familiar task can be

participant observation can do. Since it is stretched over time and can be done in multiple sittings, it allows the interviewer to establish a rapport with the interviewee (like in ethnographic interviews), while at the same time being “less intrusive”. Through this method, it is possible to construct the life worlds of interviewees and look for categories specific to a culture. In this method, the inter‑ viewer lets the interviewee speak at length around the topic of research. It also has advantages over guided questionnaire, as it puts the interviewee at ease and

. My advantages fall very short of allowing me to reach my own expectations. The sociological question of downward mobility, understood as status loss (Sheller 2014), is a constant threat. 2.3 Workplace-making Workplace‑making encompasses seeking suitable places to work and creating a good environment on that site (in‑ or outside the home), including the transfor‑ mation of those places we will occupy for just a few hours, to feel at ease and be productive. Finding the right place to work – with conditions varying depending on the tasks to get done that day

, moun‑ tains and more might become motifs, but also “cool stuff? that you see on your phone”. With the same ease, the girls move through the offline and online worlds, collecting and capturing pictures of what they see and like – “for example, there was something with strawberries that looked so cool, so I made a screenshot and installed it as background picture”. In the girls’ practices, it does not really matter if a picture is a photo in the sense of an indexical “surface marking created with light” (Maynard 1997: 34) or an accumulation of pixels on a screen
