Professor of Literature and Cultural History edit. Creative Writing programmes in universities now offer both an education for and employment to literary writers. This papers asks how literary writers apprehend their relatively recently institutionalised position, as university staff and This papers asks how literary writers apprehend their relatively recently institutionalised position, as university staff and students.
The concept of 'patronage', it is argued, offers a useful way into reflecting upon such academic institutionalisation. The argument is presented in three parts. The first outlines some of the conceptual nuances of patronage. The second examines the oft made claim that universities extend patronage to literary writers by enabling employment as Creative Writing staff.

The third part engages with a question: what precisely does a student expect to gain from a Creative Writing programme and what does the degree validate? It is suggested that Creative Writing programmes are designed principally to offer supportive patronage, with a promise-but without guarantees-of entry into a financial patronage system. A brief conclusion considers the bearing of these arguments on Creative Writing as a school subject. Doi: Save to Library.

Some of the features of such policy keywords are considered here: in terms of connotative ambiguities and associations, definitions, and naming or branding practices. Their distinctive purchase in ACE's "resilience" policies is analysed in the process. The policies were designed to reduce public spending by appealing to normative agendas which, in this instance, seemed contingent on a larger and immediate impetus and were derived from the field of "ecological economics".

It then moves to examine populist right-wing politics from Of the various ways in which Success is understood in terms of share of the popular vote at national level, and the appeal of the right-wing parties in question gauged from their manifestos.
In particular, manifesto proposals for renegotiating the principles of citizenship are considered, and their implicitly racist underpinnings noted. The final part of the Introduction presents some general observations on coded ways of evoking race and prompting racialization in contemporary political discourse.
Notes on the Ascendancy of Identity Politics in Literary Writing
How the contributions to this special issue deal with that is briefly summarized. This paper analyses the institutional relationship between Creative Writing and Literary Studies, with their erstwhile close association and current drift towards disciplinary separation in view.
It is in three parts. The first outlines The first outlines some histories of the academic discipline of Creative Writing in the university. The second examines what's involved for Creative Writing in discipline formation in the university, and touches on the role played by professional associations with a particular emphasis on the case of NAWE in Britain.

Observations on media framing and on 'austerity' as a one-word framing by way of Conclusion for a book of essays on Media Representations of Anti-Austerity Protests in Europe. Philology Vol. The idea here, however, is not to thereby try to explain the financial crisis but to The idea here, however, is not to thereby try to explain the financial crisis but to understand the preconceptions which attach to telling a 'story' — to understand the idea of the 'story' itself.
The first section of the paper argues that the financial crisis oers a useful case study to this end, since explaining for the 'ordinary person' and addressing the 'general reader' through stories involved slippages and tensions in this instance. The next section explores such stories in literary, media and academic discourses. The final section makes some consequent inferences on the concept of the 'story', suggesting that it is not adequately grasped through philologically-underpinned — specifically narratological — methods.
Cyprus Review 1, pp. The latter outlines how the role of the media The latter outlines how the role of the media apropos the financial crisis has been accounted already, but from a relatively unusual perspective: not so much in terms of what media coverage did, but in terms of what analysts of that media coverage have done, or, more generally, by foregrounding some of the underpinning assumptions and methods of Media Studies.
This essay has three more or less discrete parts; that is, no firm linear argument is developed across them. Each part informs the next, but the arguments taken up in each could also be contemplated separately.
