Consuming the Exotic Other.
Lalvani, Suren
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v12 n3 p263-86 Sep 1995
Explores the multiple and heterogeneous deployment of the Other within discourses that intersect and contest each other. Shows how the 19th century discourse of "le femme orientale," which informed the Romantic critique of capitalism, was recuperated in a hegemonic manner to promote an expanding consumer culture. Discusses the colonial representation of Otherness as analogous to the psychoanalytic fetish. (SR)
