Book excerpt: Seminar paper from the year 2016 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: 3,0, Saarland University (Anglistik, Amerikanistik und Anglophone Kulturen), course: Proseminar Britische Literaturen und Kulturen, language: English, abstract: This short paper intends to answer the questions how the identities of the two sisters in Marina Lewycka’s novel "A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian" (2005) are shaped. As the novel contains various flashbacks through past telling, which again influences the different characters of Vera and Nadia, this paper also tries to explain to which extent a personal past memory plays a role within this process of forming their self-concept. This is made by the theoretical constructs and definitions of identity and memory and the thought of how these two constructs are linked, meaning identity being created through memory. Through analyzing selected passages from the book, the theory is applied on the characters of both Nadia and Vera to find out more about their different identities and search for possible reasons in their past. The concept of collective and individual memory (Assmann) will play an important role to give possible reasons for their different perceptions of the past, which thus lead to many conflicts throughout the novel. Lewycka uses memory, especially Nadia’s and Vera’s different perceptions of the past, to determine the sisters’ identities, which also serves as legitimization of their immigration to Great Britain. Selected close readings will show how both sisters developed two different self-concepts out of their memory and how this identification influences their attitude towards migration into a country.

Book excerpt: Over the last decade, migration flows from Central and Eastern Europe have become an issue in political debates about human rights, social integration, multiculturalism and citizenship in Great Britain. The increasing number of Eastern Europeans living in Britain has provoked ambivalent and diverse responses, including representations in film and literature that range from travel writing, humorous fiction, mockumentaries, musicals, drama and children's literature to the thriller. The present volume discusses a wide range of representations of Eastern and Central Europe and its people as reflected in British literature, film and culture. The book offers new readings of authors who have influenced the cultural imagination since the nineteenth century, such as Bram Stoker, George Bernard Shaw, Joseph Conrad and Arthur Koestler. It also discusses the work of more contemporary writers and film directors including Sacha Baron Cohen, David Cronenberg, Vesna Goldsworthy, Kapka Kassabova, Marina Lewycka, Ken Loach, Mike Phillips, Joanne K. Rowling and Rose Tremain. With its focus on post-Wall Europe, Facing the East in the Westgoes beyond discussions of migration to Britain from an established postcolonial perspective and contributes to the current exploration of 'new' European identities.

Book excerpt: A beautiful summer's evening in a Kent field and around their two caravans a group of strawberry pickers celebrates a birthday. But what lies behind the buy-one-get-one-free offers at your supermarket and who picks our strawberries? The Ukrainians: Irina, just off the coach from Kiev, and Andriy, the miner's son from the other Ukraine; the Poles: Tomasz and Yola; two Chinese girls; Emanuel, the round-eyed eighteen-year-old from Malawi. And although he can't pick strawberries, there's also the Dog... Hilarious, gritty, moving and slapstick, Two Caravans has every bit of the extraordinary distinctiveness, wit and heart that made A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian so successful.
