Given this 'standing beside,' or 'sidestepping' to borrow from Elin Diamond (1989:
68), feminist artists can be understood to present their bodies as dialectical
images. 'Dialectical image' is a phrase used by Walter Benjamin to refer to an

traces of their false promises, their secret(ed) service to the dreamscapes of
modernism. Dialectical images are objects which show the show, which make it

Puccini was his favourite composer and Catriona Summers' voice had captured

A Space for Action I will suggest that we in a functional scheme can understand
the dreamscapes and illusionary character of Indian films as a focalisation in
Sperbers terms.2 When "Maine Pyar Kiya" opens in its imaginative universe it is

More than a decade later, the work of Stephen LaBerge changed the

LaBerge does not adhere to a ...
