Class by Andrew Milner( )

19 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,871 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This concise and accessible book provides an overview of the current attitudes to class in Cultural Studies and Sociology, and mounts a strong reaffirmation of the concept's centrality in both disciplines. The author argues that the theoretical retreat from class has very often expressed the class interests of its advocates. The book offers readers a critical introduction to the Marxist and Weberian accounts of class and relates its significance to the new social movements."--Jacket
Locating science fiction by Andrew Milner( )

19 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and held by 1,329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locating Science Fiction is a major intervention in contemporary theoretical debates about science fiction as a literary, film and television genre and its relation to the immediately cognate genres of utopia, dystopia and fantasy. It asks and attempts to answer three general questions about science fiction: first, what was it? (a question that is addressed both positively, in relation to the genre itself, and negatively, in relation to utopia, dystopia and fantasy); second, when was it? That is, what was its time?; and third, where was it? that is, what was its geographical space? Through a comparative and historical framework that draws upon Raymond Williams' 'cultural materialism', Pierre Bourdieu's sociology of culture and Franco Moretti's application of world-systems theory to comparative literary studies, Milner delivers a critical tour-de-force that will push Science Fiction studies into new directions
Tenses of imagination : Raymond Williams on science fiction, utopia and dystopia by Raymond Williams( )

18 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 704 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Raymond Williams was an enormously influential figure in late twentieth-century intellectual life as a novelist, playwright and critic, "the British Sartre", as The Times put it. He was a central inspiration for the early British New Left and a close intellectual supporter of Plaid Cymru. He is widely acknowledged as one of the "founding fathers" of cultural studies, who established "cultural materialism" as a new paradigm for work in both literary and cultural studies. There is a substantial secondary literature on Williams, which treats his life and work in each of these respects. But none of it makes much of his enduring contribution to utopian studies and science fiction studies. This volume brings together a complete collection of Williams's critical essays on science fiction and futurology, utopia, and dystopia, in literature, film, television, and politics, and with extracts from his two future novels, The Volunteers (1978) and The Fight for Manod (1979). Both the collection as a whole and the individual readings are accompanied by introductory essays written by Andrew Milner."--Jacket
Literature, culture, and society by Andrew Milner( Book )

38 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Literature, culture and society reinstates the centrality of literature to cultural studies. As cultural studies has grown from its modest origins on the margins of English Literature into the academic boom industry it is today, it has tended to discard both literature and sociology in favour of an increasing emphasis on the semiotics of popular culture. This book makes a determined attempt to re-establish the connections between literary studies, cultural studies and sociology." "Arguing, by turn, against literary humanism on the one hand, and sociological relativism on the other, this book is both an introduction to, and an intervention in, the major contemporary debates concerning the literary canon and its non-literary "others". The book provides an accessible overview of the major theoretical approaches to textual analysis, from hermeneutics to postmodernism, and presents a substantive account of the capitalist literary mode of production, focusing both on the technologies of mechanical reproduction and on the social relations of commodification. The book also provides a number of useful illustrative case-studies of written texts and films." "Literature, culture and society is a challenging and provocative introduction to the sociology of literature and will be essential reading for students and teachers of literary and cultural studies."--BOOK JACKET

Again, dangerous visions : essays in cultural materialism by Andrew Milner( )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Again, Dangerous Visions: Essays in Cultural Materialism brings together twenty-six essays charting the development of Andrew Milner's distinctively Orwellian version of cultural materialism between 1981 and 2015. The essays address three substantive areas: the sociology of literature; cultural materialism and the cultural politics of the New Left; and utopian and science fiction studies. They are bookended by two conversations between Milner and his editor J.R. Burgmann, the first looking back retrospectively on the development of Milner's thought, the second looking forward prospectively towards the future of academia, the political left and science fiction"--

Locating science fiction by Andrew Milner( Book )

4 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Locating Science Fiction is a ground breaking and potentially paradigm-shifting book, a major intervention into contemporary theoretical debates about SF. Academic literary criticism has tended to locate SF primarily in relation to the older genre of utopia; fan criticism primarily in relation to fantasy and SF in other media, especially film and television; popular fiction studies primarily in relation to other contemporary genres such as the romance and the thriller. This bold new synthesis relocates SF in relation to each of these other genres and media and also to the historical and geographic contexts of its emergence and development. Locating Science Fiction effects a series of vital shifts in the way SF theory and criticism has conceptualised its subject, away from prescriptively abstract dialectics of cognition and estrangement and towards the empirically grounded understanding of what is actually a messy amalgam of texts, practices and artefacts. Inspired by Raymond Williams's cultural mate
