is it defined? How is testimony used in contexts such as legal,

Metamorphosis and Sexual Expression: Exploring Homosexuality, Otherness, and the Personality in Kafka's 'The Metamorphosis'"

This article utilizes Freudian theory - specifically an analysis of id, ego, superego, eros, and libido - to analyze sexuality in Franz Kafka's novella, "The Metamorphosis." This paper suggests that, through applying elements of Freudian theory, one can better understand Gregor's physical transformation as a cultural expression of the hidden "uncanny," his homosexuality. With this understanding of Gregor's insect appearance as an expression of "taboo" sexuality, Gregor's physical, emotional, and social struggles are better understood as his desire to reject, cope with, and accept his homosexuality.

Theorizing in the Chick Lit Genre (Proposed Collection of Essays)

Though the chick lit genre is most often cited as a location for the study of contemporary white women's experiences or perhaps to debate the genre's feminist credentials, it has in the last fifteen years emerged as a site where protagonists of many ethnicities negotiate their cultural identities and notions of national belonging. In novels such as Alisa Valdes Rodriguez's The Dirty Girls Social Club (2003) or Tara FT Sering's Amazing Grace (2008), Latina, African-American, South Asian-American, and Chinese-American protagonists redefine their relationship to the United States, their families, and their heritage while at the same time they attempt to achieve, in typical chick lit fashion, some measure of success.
