Thanks Jo-Ann, will follow up on that. While on this, would you know
if the idea - if not the term itself - was originally from Rene
Girard? And what the reference for that would be?


No, I'm sorry, I don't.  The Sedgwick reference is the first I ever  saw the
expression and I don't recall that she gave a prior citation--though it's
possible.  I would check her bibliography and see where that leads.
