Consumer culture and postmodernism by Mike Featherstone( Book )

97 editions published between 1990 and 2011 in 9 languages and held by 1,052 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"If a society is postmodern, it must prioritize the consumption of resources in everyday life. In this view, mass media advertising and market dynamics lead us to a constant search for new fashions, new styles, new sensations, and new experiences. In this volume, Featherstone examines the idea of a postmodern society. He explores the roots of consumer culture, how it is defined and differentiated and the extent to which it represents the arrival of a "postmodern" world"--The publisher

Do critical perspectives still apply, or does the speed and complexity of cultural production demand new forms of analysis?" "In Spaces of Culture an international cast of scholars examines the implications of these questions for sociology and social theory. They explore the key themes in social theory: the nation state, the city, modernity, post-Fordism and the spatial logic of the informational city." "Spaces of Culture will be required reading for students and scholars in sociology, social theory and cultural studies.

Paul Virilio : from modernism to hypermodernism and beyond by John Armitage( Book )

3 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Self-professed 'urbanist', political thinker, and 'critic of the art of technology', Paul Virilio is one of the most significant and stimulating French cultural theorists writing today. Hailed as the 'archaeologist of the future' and the inventor of the concept of 'dromology', or the 'science' of speed, Virilio believes that the logic of ever increasing acceleration lies at the heart of the organization and transformation of the contemporary world. His arguments regarding the human consequences of dromology in the form of the 'disappearance' of geographical space, time, matter, movement, and aesthetics are currently causing fierce debate." "But who is Paul Virilio? What is the significance of dromology and disappearance? What are the principal cultural themes of his important writings? This book incorporates a variety of studies addressing these questions, an interview with Virilio, a recently translated example of his work, and a select bibliography of his writings. It is the first book to afford a properly critical evaluation of Virilio's cultural theory. The commissioned contributions by leading cultural and social theorists examine Virilio's work from his early speculations on military and urban space to his current writings on dromology, politics, new communications technologies, disappearance, and the fallout from 'the information bomb'." "Paul Virilio is required reading for all fellow archaeologists of the future, 'dromologists', and other students of critical cultural and social theory."--BOOK JACKET.000000

Consumer culture and postmodernism by Mike Featherstone( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Implicit within claims that society itself is in some sense postmodern is an argument about the priority of consumption as a determinant of everyday life. In this view, mass media advertising and market dynamics lead to a constant search for new fashions, new styles, new sensations and experiences. Material goods are consumed as `communicators'; they are valued as signifiers of taste and of lifestyle. This volume examines the viability of this portrait of contemporary society. Mike Featherstone explores the roots of consumer culture, how it is defined and differentiated and the extent to which
