"Unruly women and semiotic spaces": Jay Verney's a mortality tale
Muller, Vivienne (2015) "Unruly women and semiotic spaces": Jay Verney's a mortality tale. In Raith, Lisa, Jones, Jenny, & Porter, Marie (Eds.) Mothers at the Margins: Stories of Challenge, Resistance and Love. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle Upon Tyne, United Kingdom, pp. 261-274.
Written at a time of significant changes for women and for women writers in Queensland, Australia, Jay Verney's A Mortality Tale (1994), privileges women's experiences of place and seeks to redeem the feminine from its entrapment in masculine stories/discourses of self and place. This chapter draws on Julia Kristeva's conceptualisation of the semiotic as a way of reading Verney's witty and reflective re-articulation of phallocentric orderings of spatiality and gender.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and citation databases.
These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
