Topic: Movement literature

  Passing through the door: social movement literature and legal scholarship. | University of Pennsylvania Law Review ...
But the gap between American and Continental social movement literature is now widely recognized by sociologists and political scientists within the field, and, having been so noted, is being overcome by scholars who recognize the value to be gained from incorporating differing perspectives in their own research.
One event that catalyzed the modern social movement literature, in both the United States and Continental Europe, was the advent of environmentalism.
Social movement scholars soon became aware that the resource-mobilization approach failed to account for the motivation of these individuals, (29) and that the Continental approach was equally inadequate in accounting for the mechanisms by which these individuals translated their shared identities into political or social action.

 The Movement (literature) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Movement was a term coined by J. Scott, literary editor of The Spectator, in 1954 to describe a group of writers including Kingsley Amis, Philip Larkin, Donald Davie, D.J. Enright, John Wain, Elizabeth Jennings, Thom Gunn, and Robert Conquest.
Essentially The Movement was a reaction against the extreme romanticism of the previous identifiable major movement in British poetry, the New Apocalyptics (which overlapped with the Scottish Renaissance).
Ironically, interest in "The Movement" renewed in the early nineties, primarily in America, with the rise of the New Formalism and increased public interest in the work of Philip Larkin.

A social movement is a network of informal interactions between a pluraliity of individuals, groups and/or organizations, engaged in a political or cultural conflict, on the basis of a shared collective identity.
Inspired by cyberpunk literature in the mid-80's, certain groups of people stated referring to themselves as cyberpunks, because they noticed the seeds of fictional 'techno-system' in Western society today, and because they identified with the marganilized characters in cyberpunk stories.
The belief coming from cyberpunk literature shows the political and cultural conflict, cyberpunks are engaged with: the techno-system which invades more and more aspects of everyday life.

 Korean Literature (Character of Korean Literature, Korean Classical Literature, Modern Literature of Korea)
The literature of the Koryo period is marked by an increased use of Chinese letters, the disappearance of Hyangga, and the emergence of Koryo kayo (Koryo songs) which continued to be transmitted as oral literature until the Choson period.
Korean modern literature was formed against the background of the crumbling feudalistic society of the Choson Dynasty, the importation of new ideas from the West, and the new political reality of rising Japanese imperial power in East Asia.
The change from traditional to modern literature during the Enlightenment period was largely due to the effects of the New Education and the Korean Language and Literature movement.

In order for the literature of dalits to be really different from that of mainstream, there is a prerequisite of the caged dalit consciousness being freed from the hegemonic hold of Brahminic literature and culture.
It could not be dalit literature if it did not pour forth revolt and discharge a burden of hatred and contempt accumulated since centuries, or even sometimes hurl abuses at and spit out back on high castes the venom that they had to swallow for ages.
Dalit literature essentially is reflecting the maladies of the dalit and in general left politics; as a movement it is hardly visible.

Previously in communist literature badness could be ascribed to rich land owners and members of the bourgeoisie but not to the "new socialist man," certainly not to Party officials who were supposed to be wise and capable of solving all problems.
One impetus for relaxing central control of literature and journalism was economic: lacking funds to support many publications, the government told agencies that their journals would have to become self-supporting.
The Party's repression of this movement in 1960 meant that until around 1980 published criticism of life under communist rule was "sporadic or shrouded in metaphor" (173).

 Consulate General of Brazil - Literature
Important literary movements during the National Period can be linked to the country's political and social development: The Romantic Movement in literature coincided roughly with the 57 years of the Empire; the Parnassians and the Realists flourished during the early decades of the Republic, followed, around the turn of the century, by the Symbolists.
In the 20th century, the ascendance of the Vanguardist or Modernist Movement, with ideas of an avant-garde aestheticism, was celebrated during the famous São Paulo Week of Modern Art in 1922.
The transfer, in 1808, of the Portuguese royal family to Brazil brought with it the spirit of the incipient European Romantic Movement.

 AllRefer.com - transcendentalism, American literary and philosophical movement (American Literature) - Encyclopedia
It originated among a small group of intellectuals who were reacting against the orthodoxy of Calvinism and the rationalism of the Unitarian Church, developing instead their own faith centering on the divinity of humanity and the natural world.
The movement began with the occasional meetings of a group of friends in Boston and Concord to discuss philosophy, literature, and religion.
Primarily a movement seeking a new spiritual and intellectual vitality, transcendentalism had a great impact on American literature, not only on the writings of the group's members, but on such diverse authors as Hawthorne, Melville, and Whitman.

 Turkish Literature
The history of Turkish Literature may be divided into three periods, reflecting the history of Turkish civilization as follows: the period up to the adoption of Islam, the Islamic period and the period under western influence.
The latest period in literature, which is known as the Turkish Literature of the Republican period, came to be influenced by the following literary schools after Divan literary styles had been abandoned: Tanzimat (reforms), Servet-i Fünun (scientific wealth), Fecr-i Ati (dawn of the new age) and Ulusal Edebiyat (national literature).
The first decade of the Republic bore the stamp of the National Literature movement, wherein the simple clear language, poetic forms and syllabic metre of folk literature and topics from Turkey were favoured.

Although he was an ardent proponent of the realist style in literature and art and was consistently critical of modernist trends, Franko himself did not remain immune to new literary currents and produced (in such collections as Withered Leaves, 1896) one of the first modernist poems in Western Ukraine.
Their movement, deeply influenced by the writings of Taras Shevchenko, Markiian Shashkevych, Panteleimon Kulish, Mykola Kostomarov, Marko Vovchok, and others, built on the traditions of the Ukrainian national revival of the 1830s and 1840s as represented by the Cyril and Methodius Brotherhood in Kyiv, the Ruthenian Triad, and the Supreme Ruthenian Council in Lviv...

After Stonewall, gay male literature became focused as a movement, aided by the development of gay newspapers, magazines, and quarterlies and the founding of serious gay and lesbian bookstores.
American lesbian literature prior to Stonewall exploited the "outlaw" status of the lesbian as it moved from encrypted strategies of expression to overt political celebrations of woman-for-woman passion.

 The Gothic of Horror Literature - Horror Literature
It is interesting to note that gothic literature began to divide into numerous formations shortly after the genre came into official existence.
The gothic movement has come into a new existence in today’s society, and while some may find the movement disturbing and horrific, others find it beautiful and transcendent.
It is likely the horror literature movement has branched off and evolved from its more gothic cousin, yet the elements of the gothic can still be found in many works of the horror genre: abused heroines, foreboding mansions, and incestuous uncles are themes still prominent in the popular horror novels of today.

Twentieth-century innovation in literature came with the symbolist movement embraced by "the Blue Horns".
The painting was not well-known until the mid-19th century, when artists of the emerging Symbolist movement began to appreciate it, and associated it with their ideas about feminine mystique.
Critic Walter Pater in his 1867 essay on Leonardo, expressed this view of the painting by describing the figure in the painting as a kind of mythic embodiment of eternal femininity, who is "older than the rocks among which she sits" and who "has been dead many times and learned the secrets of the grave".

 Forum on Literatures of the Environment
ALTHOUGH THE STUDY of literature in relation to physical environment dates back almost as far as literary criticism itself, only in the 1990s has it assumed the proportions of a movement, with its own professional organization, the Association for the Study of Literature and Environment (ASLE, numbering some 750 members worldwide),
Considered qua movement, literature-and-environment studies (increasingly lumped under the semineologistic label "ecocriticism," however uneasy the unidoctrinalist imputation makes some practitioners, including me, feel) is thus indisputably a more coordinated venture than, say, the ethical turn in literary studies reviewed in the January 1999 PMLA.
First, its "identitarian" aspect differs from that of all other critical insurgencies purporting to speak about or for marginalized others, insofar as the other in question appears to be centered to a greater extent outside the realms of human culture and the human body (though hardly disjunct from them!).

 ArtandCulture Movement: Modernist Literature   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-19)
Traditional narratives and sequential plots were thrown out along with the baby and the bathwater by a raft of avant-garde poets, novelists, and playwrights.
Cutting-edge artistic movements with disturbing names like Dadaism, Surrealism, Futurism, Imagism, and Vorticism mushroomed in this fertile new ambience, revolting against bourgeois values, middle-class morality, and the blithe embrace of new political and social institutions.
In turn, Modernist writers plumbed the depths of their collective souls for the existence of some overarching Truth that could somehow be exhumed by breaking with convention or exploring emergent scientific vistas, like those provided by anthropology and evolution.

Most of the watches to bear these movements appear to be made for the export markets such as the US, which would explain the jewel count (traditionally US movements had higher jewel counts) and the inscription.
These movements were reliable and quite precise timekeepers, available in a variety of different watches from mid 1930´s to late 1940´s.For these reasons, one may regard them as collectable in their own right.

 Gothic Literature Summary & Essays - n/a
Gothic literature, a movement that focused on ruin, decay, death, terror, and chaos, and privileged irrationality and passion over rationality and reason, grew in response to the historical, sociological, psychological, and political contexts of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
While it may be comparatively easy to date the beginning of the Gothic movement, it is much harder to identify its close, if indeed the movement did come to a close at all.
There are those such as David Punter in The Literature of Terror: A History of Gothic Fictions from 1765 to the Present Day and Fred Botting in Gothic who follow the transitions and transformations of the Gothic through the twentieth century.
