Trauma and cinema : cross-cultural explorations by E. Ann Kaplan( )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2008 in English and held by 1,647 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume addresses the relation of trauma to transnational modern mass media. The first of its kind, Trauma and Cinema provides ten essays which explore the ways trauma works itself out in images in (and as) film, photography, and video, as media in global cultural flows. The focus of the volume on the matrix of trauma, visual media and modernity seeks to engage and go beyond current tendencies in trauma studies. The book discusses how trauma presented in the media spills over national boundaries and can be found in images across divergent cultures in Africa, Asia, Australia, Europe and America. From the Holocaust to the Chinese Cultural Revolution, from Taiwan's colonial experience to the catastrophe of Hiroshima, from the attempted annihilation of Australian Aborigines to attempted reconciliation in South Africa, these essays offer the reader a plethora of images of trauma for comparison and contrast

Rocking around the clock : music television, postmodernism, and consumer culture by E. Ann Kaplan( Book )

41 editions published between 1987 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first non-stop rock video channel was launched in the US in 1981. As a unique popular culture form, MTV warrants attention, and in this, the first study of the medium, originally published in 1987, Ann Kaplan examines the cultural context of MTV and its relationship to the history of rock music. The first part of the book focuses on MTV as a commercial institution, on the contexts of production and exhibition of videos, on their similarity to ads, and on the different perspectives of directors and viewers. Does the adoption of adolescent styles and iconography signal an open-minded acceptance of youth’s subversive stances; or does it rather suggest a cynicism by which profit has become the only value? In the second part of the book, Kaplan turns to the rock videos themselves, and from the mass of material that flows through MTV she identifies five distinct types of video: the ‘romantic’, the ‘socially conscious’, the ‘nihilistic’, the ‘classical’, and the ‘postmodern’. There are detailed analyses of certain videos; and Kaplan focuses particularly on gender issues in videos by both male and female stars. The final chapter explores the wider implications of MTV. What does the channel tell us about the state of youth culture at the time?

A secondary, linked theme of her book is the concept of "nation", with special focus on women's ethnic and transnational identities as imaged on film

Together they highlight the contradictions in the serried cultural practices of imperialism in its different historical periods."-- Publisher description
