Gender Outlaw is the work of a woman who has been through some changes--a former heterosexual male, a one-time Scientologist and IBM salesperson, now a lesbian woman writer and actress who makes regular rounds on the TV (so to speak) talk shows. In her book, Bornstein covers the "mechanics" of her surgery, everything you've always wanted to know about gender (but were too confused to ask) addresses the place and politics of the transgendered and intterogates the questions of those who give the subject little thought, creating questions of her own.

For nearly 60 years, the Milwaukee Motion Picture Commission (MMPC) had the last word on what was suitable for exhibition at local movie theaters. Born of the high ideals of the Progressive Era, the MMPC evolved into one of the nation's strictest censor boards, and kept hundreds of scenes and films from playing in Milwaukee that ran elsewhere with little to no interference. From the bawdy antics of silent-era comedians to the unabashed sexuality of 1960s, the MMPC saw itself as a defender of Milwaukee's morality throughout a half-century of great change and tumult. As the first-ever book-length examination of a local film censor board, Outlaws, Rebels, & Vixens tells the long-forgotten story of the battle for Milwaukee's cinematic soul. Includes a full index of all films either censored or banned by the MMPC.

The city was spiraling out of control…teetering on the brink of economic and social disaster. Businessmen, politicians, and community leaders struggled with the growing plight. They hoped to turn the tide…but with the arts? The Rust Belt city of Hamilton, Ohio, discovered in 1791, hoped to reverse the repeating cycle of economic decline, educational stagnancy, and social inequities, but only a few thought the arts could make any difference. A blue-collar kid understands hard work. He also knows how to complete a task. When that kid decides to make his life in the arts, in the dichotomy of blue-collar and arts, he understands that “fine arts” will not be enough and will not be the best way to reach the ends his community hopes to achieve. He also knew that if success were to be had, the arts would have to be broadly defined as they were introduced to the public. The implementation of community arts for this author meant entrusting the arts to the hearts and minds of everyday people. The mission would be community excellence through the arts.

Following in the tradition of recent work by cultural geographers and historians of maps, this collection examines the apparently familiar figure of Robin Hood as he can be located within spaces that are geographical, cultural, and temporal. The volume is divided into two sections: the first features an interrogation of the literary and other textually transmitted spaces to uncover the critical grounds in which the Robin Hood ’legend’ has traditionally operated. The essays in Part Two take up issues related to performative and experiential space, demonstrating the reciprocal relationship between page, stage, and lived experience. Throughout the volume, the contributors contend with, among other things, modern theories of gender, literary detective work, and the ways in which the settings that once advanced court performances now include digital gaming and the enactment of ’real’ lives.
