Love and theft : blackface minstrelsy and the American working class by Eric Lott( Book )

3 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over two centuries, America has celebrated the very black culture it attempts to control and repress, and nowhere is this phenomenon more apparent than in the strange practice of blackface performance. Born of extreme racial and class conflicts, the blackface minstrel show sometimes served to usefully intensify these conflicts. Based on the appropriation of black dialect, music, and dance, minstrelsy at once applauded and lampooned black culture, ironically contributing to a "blackening of America."" "Drawing on recent research in cultural studies and social history, Eric Lott examines the role of the blackface minstrel show in the political struggles of the years leading up to the Civil War. Reading minstrel music, lyrics, jokes, burlesque skits, and illustrations in tandem with working-class racial ideologies and the sex/gender system, Love and Theft argues that blackface minstrelsy both embodied and disrupted the racial tendencies of its largely white, male, working-class audiences. Underwritten by envy as well as repulsion, sympathetic identification as well as fear - a dialectic of "love and theft"--The minstrel show continually transgressed the color line even as it enabled the formation of a self-consciously white working class." "Lott exposes minstrelsy as a signifier for multiple breaches: the rift between high and low cultures, the commodification of the dispossessed by the empowered, the attraction mixed with guilt of whites caught in the act of cultural thievery."--Jacket

Black mirror : the cultural contradictions of American racism by Eric Lott( Book )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Black Mirror explores the ways U.S. cultural institutions--classic American literature, Hollywood film, pop musical artistry, venturesome social commentary--have relied insistently and repeatedly on racial symbolic capital, including and above all blackface, to reproduce white cultural dominance. In the process these forms have threatened to betray the racial hegemony that generated them and that they exist in order to maintain. Hence the subtitle, The Cultural Contradictions of American Racism. In a series of chapters addressing such arts and artists as Mark Twain, film noir, Joni Mitchell, Elvis impersonators, Bob Dylan, and Barack Obama, Black Mirror locates the symbolic surplus value that accrues to white cultural producers and institutions whenever they traffic in "blackness"--A political economy of the sign that can sometimes surprise us (not least by producing a black president).--

The disappearing liberal intellectual by Eric Lott( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"Whatever happened to liberal intellectuals of the baby-boom generation? In The Disappearing Liberal Intellectual, Eric Lott shows that some charter members of the New Left are suffering from a condition that he has dubbed "boomeritis." Too secure in their university appointments, lecture tours, and book deals, the once-rising stars of the liberal elite - including Todd Gitlin, Michael Lind, Paul Berman, Greil Marcus, and Henry Louis Gates, Jr. - have drifted away from their radical moorings toward the political center."--Jacket
