The myth of media violence : a critical introduction by David Trend( Book )

15 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and Turkish and held by 657 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public hunger for violent entertainment has always existed with each invention of new media, from the printing press to the Internet. This book examines the current and historical debates over one of the most widely discussed yet little understood issues of our time: the social and cultural effects of violence in film, television, and video games. The book explains the need for media violence, and why, despite decades of activism against them, violent media outlets continue to grow and develop at a rapid pace. Examples are drawn from a range of media, including disaster and horror movies, science fiction, film tie-in toys, crime shows, MTV, news, sports, children's television programming, books, and video games. It also investigates the forces encouraging social anxieties, why violence in media exists at all, and how society can deal with it

The crisis of meaning in culture and education by David Trend( )

3 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 469 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Crisis of Meaning was first published in 1995. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.Pick up any newspaper and it is clear that the United States is facing a democratic crisis. Recent culture wars and debates about political correctness and culture have illustrated how conventional definitions of citizenship and national identity have been thrown into question.Investigating what he views as an inseparable link between culture and politics, David Trend analyzes how notions of patriotism, citizenship, community, and family are communicated within specific public and private institutions. He extends the meaning and purpose of pedagogy as a cultural practice outside the classroom, focusing on political activism in education, the mass media, and the art world.The Crisis of Meaning supplies a crucial theoretical understanding of the ways in which the pedagogical and political intersect at a variety of cultural sites, as it points us toward a "democratic" process of national identity formation. It is indispensable reading for anyone interested in the connections between education and politics.David Trend is executive director of the Center for Social Research and Education in San Francisco and also executive editor of the Socialist Review. He is the author of Cultural Pedagogy: Art/Education/Politics (1992)

Radical democracy : identity, citizenship, and the state by David Trend( Book )

18 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Radical Democracy addresses the loss of faith in conventional party politics and argues for new ways of thinking about diversity, liberty and civic responsibility. The cultural and social theorists in Radical Democracy broaden the discussion beyond the conventional and conservative rhetoric by investigating the applicability of radical democracy in the United States. Issues debated include whether democracy is primarily a form of decision making or an instrument of popular empowerment; and whether democracy constitutes an abstract ideal or an achievable goal
Cultural democracy : politics, media, new technology by David Trend( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Spanish and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the work of a range of public intellectuals like Stanley Aronowitz, Henry Giroux, bell hooks, Chantal Mouffe, and Cornel West, Cultural Democracy argues for a "radical democracy" capable of subverting traditional divisions of "left" and "right." In so doing, Trend suggests that solutions to contemporary cultural and political problems are not so far away as one might think. Their roots lie in the very democratic principles upon which the U.S. was founded, although many such principles need to be brought up to date and radicalized
Cultural pedagogy : art, education, politics by David Trend( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and Undetermined and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In recent years, debates over culture and education have entered the public consciousness as never before. Politicians, bureaucrats, and scholars have credited these endeavors with the capacity to influence matters ranging from public morality to national productivity. Trend examines points at which art and learning intersect in both traditional and nontraditional settings and offers a variety of alternatives for the construction of a new cultural pedagogy. He argues that we need to redefine concepts like art, literature, and education, to integrate them more fully into our lives.||On one hand
The end of reading : from Gutenberg to Grand Theft Auto by David Trend( Book )

11 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: Big changes have been taking place in reading in recent years. While American society has become more visual and digital, the general state of literacy in America is in crisis, with educators and public officials worried about falling educational standards, the rising influence of popular culture, and growing numbers of non-English-speaking immigrants. But how justified are these worries? By focusing on "reading," this book takes a serious look at public literacy, but chooses not to blame the familiar scapegoats. Instead, The End of Reading proposes that in a diverse and rapidly changing society, we need to embrace multiple definitions of what it means to be a literate person
Worlding : identity, media, and imagination in a digital age by David Trend( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 241 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Worlding brings ideas about "virtual" places and societies together with perceptions about the "real" world in an era of mounting global uncertainty. As mass media and the internet consume ever-increasing portions of our lives, are we becoming disengaged from face-to-face human interaction and real-world concerns? Or is the virtual world actually bringing people closer together and making them more involved with social issues? Worlding argues that the "virtual" and the "real" are profoundly interconnected, often in ways we don's fully appreciate. Drawing on sociology, culture studies, philosophy, media analysis, and technology studies, worlding makes the argument that virtual experience and social networking can be vital links to utopian visions and an appreciation of the world's diversity
Everyday culture : finding and making meaning in a changing world by David Trend( Book )

12 editions published between 2007 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this book, David Trend challenges the assumption that mass media is all-powerful and that "art" and "culture" exist only in museums while having little to do with everyday life. In doing so, the book discusses the role of media culture in understandings of who students are, how they got here, and the kind of world they'd like to inhabit, and how they might contribute to social change through local action. Everyday Culture takes a critical look at why many people have become alienated from politics, disillusioned with the democratic process, and absorbed with self-interest and private concerns while also examining how the American cultural experience can shape and change our understanding of the world. The book is a perfect introduction to cultural studies in a variety of disciplines."--Publisher description

Anxious creativity : when imagination fails by David Trend( )

6 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 177 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Creativity is getting new attention in today's America--along the way revealing fault lines in U.S. culture. Surveys show people overwhelmingly seeing creativity as both a desirable trait and a work enhancement, yet most say they just aren't creative. Like beauty and wealth, creativity seems universally desired but insufficiently possessed. Businesses likewise see innovation as essential to productivity and growth, but can't bring themselves to risk new ideas. Even as one's "inner artist" is hyped by a booming self-help industry, creative education dwindles in U.S. schools. Anxious Creativity: When Imagination Fails examines the conceptual mess, while focusing on how America's current edginess dampens creativity in everyone. Written in an engaging and accessible style, Anxious Creativity draws on current ideas in the social sciences, economics, and the arts. Discussion centers on the knotty problem of reconciling the expressive potential in all people with the nation's tendency to reward only a few. Fortunately, there is some good news, as scientists, economists, and creative professionals have begun advocating new ways of sharing and collaboration. Building on these prospects, the book argues that America's innovation crisis demands a rethinking of individualism, competition, and the ways creativity is rewarded."--

Art, Activism, and Oppositionality : Essays from Afterimage( )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a common perception in the arts today that overtly activist art-often seen to sacrifice an aesthetic pleasure for a subversive one-is no longer in fashion. In bringing together sixteen of the most important essays on activist and community-based art from the pages of Afterimage-one of the most influential journals in the media and visual arts fields for more than twenty-five years-Grant H. Kester demonstrates that activist art, far from being antithetical to the true meaning of the aesthetic, can be its most legitimate expression.Forging a style of criticism where aesthetic, critical, theoretical, and activist concerns converge, Afterimage has shaped American debates around the politics of visual production and arts education while offering a voice to politically involved artists and scholars. Art, Activism, and Oppositionality insists not only on the continuing relevance of an activist stance to contemporary art practice and criticism, but also on the significance of an engaged art practice that is aligned with social or political activism. With essays that span fifteen years-roughly from Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential win to the 1994 Republican victories in Congress, a period marked by waning public support for the arts and growing antagonism toward activist art-Art, Activism, and Oppositionality confronts issues ranging from arts patronage, pedagogy, and the very definitions of art and activism to struggles involving AIDS, reproductive rights, sexuality, and racial identity.Contributors. Maurice Berger, Richard Bolton, Ann Cvetkovich, Coco Fusco, Brian Goldfarb, Mable Haddock, Grant H. Kester, Ioannis Mookas, Chiquita Mullins Lee, Darrell Moore, Lorraine O'Grady, Michael Renov, Martha Rosler, Patricia Thomson, David Trend, Charles A. Wright Jr., Patricia R. Zimmerman
