Zones of instability : literature, postcolonialism, and the nation by Imre Szeman( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 412 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Zones of Instability, Imre Szeman examines the complex relationship between literature and politics by exploring the production of nationalist literature in the former British empire. Taking as his case studies the regions of the British Caribbean, Nigeria, and Canada, Szeman analyzes the work of authors for whom the idea of the "nation" and literature are inexorably entwined, such as Chinua Achebe, Wole Soyinka, C.L.R. James, Frantz Fanon, and V.S. Naipaul. Szeman focuses on literature created in the two decades after World War II, decades in which the future prospects for many newly independent former colonies went from extreme political optimism to often bitter political disappointment. He argues that "nation" can be read as that space in which literature is thought to be able to reunite two things that history has separated - the writer and the people."--Jacket
Pierre Bourdieu : fieldwork in culture by Nicholas Brown( Book )

12 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of Pierre Bourdieu, one of the most influential French intellectuals of the 20th century, has had an enormous impact on research in fields as diverse as aesthetics, education, anthropology, and sociology. This is the first collection of essays to focus specifically on the contribution of Birdie's thought to the study of cultural production. Though Birdie's own work has illuminated diverse cultural phenomena, th essays in this volume extend to new cultural forms and to national situations outside France. Far from simply applying Birdie's concepts and theoretical tools to these new contexts, the essays in this volume consider both the possibility and limits of Birdie's sociology for the study of culture

6 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reader brings together for the first time in one volume recent writing in Canadian cultural studies and work by significant Canadian cultural analysts of the postwar era. [This reader Includes] essays by anglophone, francophone, and First Nations writers."
After Globalization by Eric M Cazdyn( Book )

20 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 235 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In lively and unflinching prose, Eric Cazdyn and Imre Szeman argue that contemporary thought about the world is disabled by a fatal flaw: the inability to think "an after" to globalization. After establishing seven theses (on education, morality, history, future, capitalism, nation, and common sense) that challenge the false promises that sustain this time-limit, After Globalization examines four popular thinkers (Thomas Friedman, Richard Florida, Paul Krugman and Naomi Klein) and how their work is dulled by these promises. Cazdyn and Szeman then speak to students from around the globe who are both unconvinced and uninterested in these promises and who understand the world very differently than the way it is popularly represented. After Globalization argues that a true capacity to think an after to globalization is the very beginning of politics today"--

Cultural autonomy : frictions and connections by Petra Rethmann( Book )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Globalization has challenged concepts such as local culture and cultural autonomy. And the rampant commodification of cultural products has challenged the way we define culture itself. Have these developments transformed the relationship between culture and autonomy? Have traditional notions of cultural autonomy been recast? Cultural Autonomy showcases the work of scholars who are exploring new ways of understanding the critical issue of globalization and culture. By defining culture broadly -- as a set of ideas or practices that range from skateboarding to the work of public intellectuals such as Edward Said -- they trace how issues of cultural autonomy have played out in various areas, including the human rights and environmental movements and among indigenous peoples. Although the contributors focus on the marginalized issue of autonomy, they offer a balanced perspective -- one that reveals that globalization has not only limited but also created new forms of cultural autonomy."--Publisher's website

Irony, ideology, and resistance : the amazing double life of Harlequin Presents by Kristin Downey( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While the texts in the series manifest standardized outcomes, they also exhibit recurrent patterns of resistance. The serial form of Harlequin Presents dictates that this tension between separate value sets and ideologies is never fully resolved. The appeal of the romance novel must then lie between these competing demands. Each of my chapters examines the ways that this ironic tension functions within a different intellectual space. In considering how the domestic sphere, the body and the nation are overlayed with multiple, contested meanings, this thesis maps out the scope of ideological resistance and adherence throughout Harlequin Presents
