Britpop and the English music tradition by Andy Bennett( )

The book examines issues such as the historical antecedents of Britpop, the subjectivities governing the performative conventions of Britpop, the cultural context within which Britpop unfolded, and its influence on the post-Britpop music scene in the UK. While Britpop is central to the volume, discussion of this phenomenon is used as an opportunity to examine the particularities of English popular music since the turn of the twentieth century

Writing sites : a genealogy of the postmodern world by Jon Stratton( Book )

15 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through a provocative synthesis of the theories of Marx, Foucault, Baudrillaad and Derrida, Jon Stratton provides a basis for an analysis of the relationship betwene capitalism and the metaphors of writing. He argues that these theorists share not only a specific philosophical orientation, but their articulation at a specific historical moment: the deployment of consumption capitalism and the privileging of representation over presence

When music migrates : crossing British and European racial faultlines, 1945-2010 by Jon Stratton( )

16 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jon Stratton explores the concept of 'song careers', referring to how a song is picked up and then transformed by being revisioned by different artists and in different cultural contexts, to examine the ways that music has crossed racial faultlines that have developed in the post-Second World War era as a consequence of the movement of previously colonized peoples to the countries that colonized them. It is this migration of music that will appeal not only to those studying popular music, but also cultural studies and race

Jews, race, and popular music by Jon Stratton( Book )

9 editions published between 2009 and 2017 in English and held by 301 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jon Stratton provides a pioneering work on Jews as a racialized group in the popular music of America, Britain and Australia during the twentieth and early twenty-first centuries. Rather than taking a narrative, historical approach the book consists of a number of case studies, looking at the American, British and Australian music industries. Stratton's primary motivation is to uncover how the racialized positioning of Jews, which was sometimes similar but often different in each of the societies under consideration, affected the kinds of music with which Jews have become involved. Stratton explores race as a cultural construction and continues discussions undertaken in Jewish Studies concerning the racialization of the Jews and the stereotyping of Jews in order to present an in-depth and critical understanding of Jews, race and popular music."--Jacket
Uncertain lives : culture, race and neoliberalism in Australia by Jon Stratton( )

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 297 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uncertain Lives is the first book to examine the impact of neoliberal policies on everyday life in Australia. Going beyond the discussions of multiculturalism that dominated the 1980s and 1990s, Uncertain Lives examines the persistence of race and racism in the Australian experience. While the governments of John Howard followed the rhetoric of neoliberalism in suggesting that market forces dominated social relations, in reality the racism that had been founded in the White Australia policy b
Jewish identity in Western pop culture : the Holocaust and trauma through modernity by Jon Stratton( Book )

9 editions published between 2008 and 2015 in English and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jewish Identity in Western Pop Culture examines the impact of the Holocaust and asserts that the Holocaust caused a fundamental undermining of the modern, Western confidence in reason and progress. Stratton argues that the Holocaust is a pervasive marker in the West and takes an insightful look at the ways in which the trauma of the Holocaust could be considered a general trauma for Western society. This book includes a wide range of cultural discussions - from the relationship of the Holocaust to modern colonial practices, to its relation to punk music - in order to illustrate the Holocaust both as a personal condition, and as a cultural condition."--BOOK JACKET
