DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Mavor, a professor of art history and visual studies at the University of Manchester, lends a few chapters to the United States culture wars (though she doesn't state this as an agenda point) by offering a contrast to texts, such as the well-known War Against Boys (2000) by Christina Hoff Summers, that pathologize effeminizing tendencies in Western societies. In a particular few pages for instance, she makes lyrical connections and writes intertwining interpretations among disparate subjects spanning several centuries and cultures including Barrie's The Little White Bird (1902), portraits of children with birds by both Francisco Goya and John Brewster, Julia Kristeva's ideas about infantile pre-linguistic communication, Antoine de Saint-Exupry's The Little Prince (1943), and a contemporary photographic image by Robert and Shana ParkeHarrison.\n In or out of context, lines such as If Proust, as Kristeva has claimed, loves 'people and places with his mouth,' by extension Lartigue's camera loves people and places as a mouth.
