This volume in the Louisiana Purchase Bicentennial Series in Louisiana History focuses attention on aspects of Louisiana's social and cultural development and on the changing nature of the discourse in Louisiana historiography that has taken place through the course of the twentieth century. It provides samples of both the older and the newer research on Louisiana society and culture. The volume is organized into six parts. Part I offers a selection of articles ranging from early analyses of race and class that have become classics in the literature to end-of-the-twentieth-century interpretations shaped by postmodern theory and concerns.
The first decades of the twenty-first century saw a resurgence of the biblical epic film, such as Noah and Exodus: Gods and Kings, which was in turn accompanied by a growth of biblical film criticism.

Jongwoo Jeremy Kim Language: Augmenting recent developments in theories of gender and sexuality, this anthology marks a compelling new phase in the scholarship on queer visual studies.

Accepting difficulty and opacity as forms of queer pleasure, this book explores the potential of queer theory in modern and contemporary art and visual culture.
The essays range in focus from photography, painting and film to poetry, Biblical text, lesbian humor, and even botany. Evaluating the most recent critical theories and introducing them in close examinations of objects and texts, this is the first book to take up the study of queer visual culture.Beyond Understanding: Appeals to the Imagination, Passions & Will in Mid-Nineteenth-Century American Women's Fiction Bible Stories & Religious Classics ‘Une sauvagerie très douce’, in Visions/ Revisions: Essays on Nineteenth-Century French Culture, ed.
