Muting White Noise by James H. Cox Summary

Native American fiction writers have confronted Euro-American narratives about Indians and the colonial world those narratives help create. These Native authors offer stories in which Indians remake this colonial world by resisting conquest and assimilation, sustaining their cultures and communities, and surviving. In Muting White Noise, James H. Cox considers how Native authors have liberated our imaginations from colonial narratives. Cox takes his title from Sherman Alexie, for whom the white noise of a television set represents the white mass-produced culture that mutes American Indian voices. Cox foregrounds the work of Native intellectuals in his readings of the American Indian novel tradition. He thereby develops a critical perspective from which to re-see the role played by the Euro-American novel tradition in justifying and enabling colonialism. By examining novels by Native authors—especially Thomas King, Gerald Vizenor, and Alexie—Cox shows how these writers challenge and revise colonizers’ tales about Indians. He then offers “red readings” of some revered Euro-American novels, including Herman Melville’s Moby-Dick, and shows that until quite recently, even those non-Native storytellers who sympathized with Indians could imagine only their vanishing by story’s end. Muting White Noise breaks new ground in literary criticism. It stands with Native authors in their struggle to reclaim their own narrative space and tell stories that empower and nurture, rather than undermine and erase, American Indians and their communities.

White Noise by Takeyuki Hida,Hui-Hsiung Kuo,Jürgen Potthoff,L. Streit Summary

This monograph presents a framework for infinite dimensional analysis based on white noise. This approach, which has many areas of application is both intuitive and efficient. Among the concepts and structures generalized to an infinite dimensional setting in this book are: spaces of test and generalized functions, differential calculus, Laplacian and Fourier transforms and Dirichlet forms and their Markov processes. A multitude of concepts, such as Brownian motion functionals, falls into this framework. This book presents a simple, yet general theory of stochastic integration and also discusses construction quantum field theory and Feynman's functional integration. This volume will be of interest to mathematicians and scientists who use stochastic methods in their research. The book will be of particular value to mathematicians in probability theory, functional analysis, measure theory, potential theory, as well as to physicists and scientists in engineering.

White Boys, White Noise: Masculinities and 1980s Indie Guitar Rock by Dr Matthew Bannister Summary

To what extent do indie masculinities challenge the historical construction of rock music as patriarchal? This key question is addressed by Matthew Bannister, involving an in-depth examination of indie guitar rock in the 1980s as the culturally and historically specific production of white men. Through textual analysis of musical and critical discourses, Bannister provides the first book-length study of masculinity and ethnicity within the context of indie guitar music within US, UK and New Zealand 'scenes'. Bannister argues that past theorisations of (rock) masculinities have tended to set up varieties of working-class deviance and physical machismo as 'straw men', oversimplifying masculinities as 'men behaving badly'. Such approaches disavow the ways that masculine power is articulated in culture not only through representation but also intellectual and theoretical discourse. By re-situating indie in a historical/cultural context of art rock, he shows how masculine power can be rearticulated through high, avant-garde, bohemian culture and aesthetic theory: canonism, negation (Adorno), passivity, voyeurism and camp (Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground), and primitivism and infantilism (Lester Bangs, Simon Reynolds). In a related vein, he also assesses the impact of Freud on cultural theory, arguing that reversing binary conceptions of gender by associating masculinities with an essentialised passive femininity perpetuates patriarchal dualism. Drawing on his own experience as an indie musician, Bannister surveys a range of indie artists, including The Smiths, The Jesus and Mary Chain, My Bloody Valentine and The Go-Betweens; from the US, R.E.M., The Replacements, Dinosaur Jr, Hüsker Dü, Nirvana and hardcore; and from NZ, Flying Nun acts, including The Chills, The Clean, the Verlaines, Chris Knox, Bailter Space, and The Bats, demonstrating broad continuities between these apparently disparate scenes, in terms of gender, aesthetic theory and approaches to popular musical history. The result is a book which raises some important questions about how gender is studied in popular culture and the degree to which alternative cultures can critique dominant representations of gender.

White Noise by Don DeLillo Summary

'America's greatest living writer.' - Observer Jack Gladney is the creator and chairman of Hitler studies at the College-on-the-Hill. This is the story of his absurd life; a life that is going well enough, until a chemical spill from a rail car releases an 'Airborne Toxic Event' and Jack is forced to confront his biggest fear - his own mortality. White Noise is an effortless combination of social satire and metaphysical dilemma in which Don DeLillo exposes our rampant consumerism, media saturation and novelty intellectualism. It captures the particular strangeness of life lived when the fear of death cannot be denied, repressed or obscured and ponders the role of the family in a time when the very meaning of our existence is under threat.

Through White Noise by Khalida Tanvir Syed Summary

Through White Noise is structured around poetry and personal stories about living in liminal space that requires and encourages cultural sensitivity, awareness, and commitment for a just society. A prominent theme in this book is the challenge of reconciling the ideal of Canadian multiculturalism with experiences of marginalization and stereotyping. Before her arrival, Khalida imagined her new homeland as a multicultural rainbow arched over a diversity of races, beliefs and practices. Entering Winnipeg in the middle of winter, she was greeted with a white world: white people, white, snow-covered ground, white trees and a pale blue sky. Jon is a Caucasian professor from England who has a privileged position as an academic citizen. He felt responsible for enhancing his students? awareness of their perceptions, and the role they have in their teaching practices. Reena is a South Asian professor living in Quebec whose voice is combined with other educators as they address different racisms. The book inspires readers to embrace teaching and learning relationships that respect the dynamic spaces we live in locally and globally.

Observations of White Noise by Marc M. Harrold Summary

Observations of White Noise An Acid Test for the First Amendment examines the current state of the First Amendment, its scope and design, and its place in popular culture. Lawyer Marc M. Harrold candidly examines both mainstream and cutting-edge topics, including an overview of the First Amendment and its unique character in comparison with the other Amendments that comprise the Bill of Rights. In engaging fashion, he reveals the illogical reasoning behind the Supreme Court's sex-only obscenity doctrine and the over-expansive insertion of the First Amendment into tort suits between private parties where the government is not directly involved. Advance Praise for Observations of White Noise- "Observations of White Noise is a clear and provocative interpretation of the present state of First Amendment law as it impacts our ever-evolving culture. Marc Harrold powerfully trumpets the importance of free speech and representative government in a democratic society. Professor Harrold offers deep insights by integrating critical analysis and perspective on how judicial interpretations of our beloved First Amendment shape our nation and its culture." -Hon. Kenneth W. Starr, Dean and Professor of Law, Pepperdine School of Law. Former Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals, Solicitor General of the United States, Independent Counsel on the Whitewater matter, and author of FIRST AMONG EQUALS: THE SUPREME COURT IN AMERICAN LIFE. "A timely and thoughtful exploration of the newest generation of challenges to our ongoing American debate over the meaning of the First Amendment, gracefully intertwining 'breaking news' with discussion of classic First Amendment conundrums."

White Noise by Jesse Diamond Summary

The book's title speaks to many frequencies of equal intensities; the author is also sensitive to the phrase's colloquial association with drowning out the fragmentation and cultural distance permeating the United States today. Many forms of art, including music and photography, offer a platform for commonality; Ralph Gibson's succinct introduction places these two related art forms in context in Diamond's work. Through the high-key light permeating much of his way of seeing, complemented in the extreme by his attention to gestures in the shadows of the night, Diamond fosters a brief connection between the world, himself, and the viewer through each carefully composed frame.
