Cultural studies by Lawrence Grossberg( Book )

42 editions published between 1990 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The most ambitious and broadly international collection on cultural studies ever published, this book is destined to shape research and teaching through the 1990s and beyond. It arrives at a time of high visibility for cultural studies but a time as well when cultural studies' long oppositional history is in danger--particularly in the United States-- of being taken up and assimilated into the ongoing, apolitical, academic enterprise. In an effort to disrupt this process, Cultural Studies interrogates the contemporary commitments of the field: its historical and intellectual positions, political and scholarly preoccupations, and the kinds of interventions it aims for now and in the future. Featuring essays by such prominent cultural theorists as Tony Bennett, Homi Bhaba, Donna Haraway, bell hooks, Constance Penley, Janice Radway, Andrew Ross, and Cornel West, Cultural Studies offers numerous specific cultural analyses while simultaneously defining and debating the common body of assumptions, questions, and concerns that have helped create the field. The topics addressed include race and minority discourses; ethnicity and postcolonialism; postmodernism; feminism; cultural policy; the place of history in cultural studies; the politics of representation; popular culture; aesthetics; ethics; and technology. At the same time Cultural Studies explores the cultural work performed by such diverse forms of cultural production as rock music, Chicano art, detective novels, African-American writing, the AIDS epidemic, architecture, reproductive freedom, sati Star Trek fandom, and New Age technology. Numerous contributors interrogate their own theoretical and methodological commitments, examining the place of representation, narrative, identity, language, and textual criticism in their work. -- Publisher description

Mediamaking : mass media in a popular culture by Lawrence Grossberg( Book )

27 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 940 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Taking a unique approach to the study of mass communication and cultural studies, MediaMaking is a volume that presents the current knowledge about the relationship between media, culture, and society. What sets this volume apart from competing texts is the approach taken and the distinguished scholarship. Rather than examining each major medium separately (newspapers, books, magazines, radio, television, film), the authors contend that mass communication cannot be studied apart from the other institutions in society and the other dimensions of social life--each is shaping and defining the other. They hold that media can only be understood in relation to their context--institutional, economic, social, cultural, and historical. As such, this book explores the variety of ways in which the media are involved in our social lives. The authors explore the different relationships between the media and the systems of social value and social differences that organize power in contemporary society. They examine how the media are reproduced and consumed and what they produce in turn. Theoretically and analytically organized with sections on media's relation to behavior, politics, media effects, the public, globalization, organizations, meaning, and ideology, this text offers students a more comprehensive understanding of the nature of media communication processes - an absolutely necessary part of understanding contemporary life."--Jacket

We gotta get out of this place : popular conservatism and postmodern culture by Lawrence Grossberg( Book )

16 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and German and held by 613 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Consider this parodox: for many people, rock is dead, crushed by the weight of its own success and popularity, little more than a major voice of mainstream commercial entertainment. But for many others, especially among the new conservative Right, rock poses a greater threat now than ever before. What is it about rock that makes it so important in contemporary political struggles? Bringing together cultural, political, and economic analyses, Lawrence Grossberg offers an original and bold interpretation of the contemporary politics of both rock and popular culture in the United States. We Gotta Get Out of This Place explores four histories: the changing role of rock in everyday life; the emergence of an affective and popular conservatism; the crisis of contemporary capitalism; and the apparent inability of the Left to respond to these changes. These critical developments are bound together by their concern with postmodernity, understood as both a structure of everyday life and as a sensibility of popular culture. Everyone wants to get out of this place, but only the Right seems to have found a way to benefit from where we are
Dancing in spite of myself : essays on popular culture by Lawrence Grossberg( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2012 in English and held by 568 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Dancing in Spite of Myself, Lawrence Grossberg--well known as a pioneering figure in cultural studies--has collected essays written over the past twenty years that have also established him as one of the leading theorists of popular culture and, specifically, of rock music. Grossberg offers an original and sophisticated view of the growing power of popular culture and its increasing inseparability from contemporary structures of economic and political power and from our everyday lives.In the course of conducting this exploration into the meaning of "popularity," he investigates the nature of fandom, the social effects of rock music and youth culture, and the possibilities for understanding the history of popular texts and practices. Describing what he calls "the postmodernity of everyday life," Grossberg offers important insights into the relation of pop music to issues of postmodernity and inton the growing power of the new cultural conservatism and its relationship to "the popular." Exploring the limits of existing theories of hegemony in cultural studies, Grossberg reveals the ways in which popular culture is being mobilized in the service of economic and political struggles. In articulating his own critical practice, Grossberg surveys and challenges some of the major assumptions of popular culture studies, including notions of domination and resistance, mainstream and marginality, and authenticity and incorporation.Dancing in Spite of Myself provides an introduction to contemporary theories of popular culture and a clear statement of relationships among theories of the nature of rock music, postmodernity, and conservative hegemony

The book will speak to students of rhetoric, mass communication, cultural studies, anthropology, and sociology alike

Cultural studies 1983 : a theoretical history by Stuart Hall( )

12 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The publication of "Cultural Studies 1983" is a touchstone event in the history of Cultural Studies and a testament to Stuart Hall's unparalleled contributions. The eight foundational lectures Hall delivered at the University of Illinois in 1983 introduced North American audiences to a thinker and discipline that would shift the course of critical scholarship. Unavailable until now, these lectures present Hall's original engagements with the theoretical positions that contributed to the formation of Cultural Studies. Throughout this personally guided tour of Cultural Studies' intellectual genealogy, Hall discusses the work of Richard Hoggart, Raymond Williams, and E.P. Thompson; the influence of structuralism; the limitations and possibilities of Marxist theory; and the importance of Althusser and Gramsci. Throughout these theoretical reflections, Hall insists that Cultural Studies aims to provide the means for political change
Under the cover of chaos : Trump and the battle for the American right by Lawrence Grossberg( )

6 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the ways that people have dealt with the rise of Donald Trump has been to dismiss him as an outlier, treating his irrationality, cruelty, and bombast as marks of his own character rather than signs of anything larger. This book shows why this is wrong. The author shows the deep roots of Trumpism in the broader history of postwar US conservatism. He shows that Trump's manic nonsense is actually a continuation, the result of a long struggle between the new right and the reactionary right. What is new, he adds, is that the reactionary right has been legitimated--and has brought its political strategy of sowing chaos into the heart of mainstream politics. The author also analyzes the national mood--explaining how that plays out in the actions of both Trump supporters and opponents--and lays out a possible nightmare future: a vision of a political system controlled by corporate interests, built on a deliberate dismantling of modern politics
