8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Known for his outspoken and often controversial views on class, ethnicity and sexuality, Morrissey has remained an anti-establishment figure who continues to provoke argument, debate and devotion amongst critics and his many fans. Focusing exclusively on Morrissey's solo career, the collected essays in this important book make for a rich reading of Morrissey and his highly influential creative output. Working across a range of academic disciplines and approaches (including musicology; ethnography; sociology and cultural studies) these essays seek to make sense of the many complexities of this global icon.--Publisher's description."Known for his outspoken and often controversial views on class, ethnicity and sexuality, Morrissey has remained an anti-establishment figure who continues to provoke argument, debate and devotion amongst critics and his many fans.

David Bowie : critical perspectives by Eoin Devereux( )

14 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

David Bowie: Critical Perspectives examines in detail the many layers of one of the most intriguing and influential icons in popular culture. This interdisciplinary book brings together established and emerging scholars from a wide variety of backgrounds, including musicology, sociology, art history, literary theory, philosophy, politics, film studies and media studies. Bowie's complexity as a singer, songwriter, producer, performer, actor and artist demands that any critical engagement with his overall work must be interdisciplinary and wide-ranging in its scope. The chapters are organised around the key themes of 'textualities', 'psychologies', 'orientalisms', 'art and agency' and 'performing and influencing' in Bowie's work. This comprehensive book contributes a great deal to the study of popular music, performance, gender, religion, popular media and celebrity

Our sounds, our city: Urban soundscapes, critical citizenship and the 'LimerickSoundscapes' project( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

What happens when, in recording an urban soundscape, the actual recording process is handed over to a city's people? This article explores the methodological, technological and ideological challenges and opportunities faced in a project based in the small, multicultural and post-industrial city of Limerick, in the Midwest of Ireland. The city is currently undergoing a process of urban 'regeneration' following decades of challenges (high unemployment rates, rapid demographic shifts brought about by global migration, social disenfranchisement in marginalized neighbourhoods, gangland criminality, and considerable stigmatization by the national media). Facilitated by an interdisciplinary, university-based team involving urban ethnomusicologists, sociologists, media and information technology specialists, and soundscape composers, 'LimerickSoundscapes' activates 'citizen collectors' as critical collaborators in the research process, as well as partners with a vested interest in representing and recreating their city through local sounds as part of lived experience. The project connects soundscapes and acoustic ecology studies with cultural geography, and with urban, applied ethnomusicology's focus on human subjects. Through an evocation of 'critical citizenship' and 'creative regions', 'LimerickSoundscapes' offers a particular kind of model for soundscape generation that has the individual as a networked, social being and creative, critical citizen at its core
Urban soundscapes and critical citizenship: Explorations in activating a 'sonic turn' in urban cultural studies( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This special section of the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies engages with the idea of activating a 'sonic turn' in urban cultural studies scholarship, in part through the evocation of the paradigm of critical and participatory citizenship, as well as through critical approaches to understanding how sound and music are implicated in the texture of a city. This work is therefore informed by theorizations of topdown and of bottom-up approaches to engagements with, and representation of, the city, through sonic and musical means. Drawing on a variety of disciplinary approaches, including urban ethnomusicology, urban sociology, cultural geography, acoustic ecology and soundscapes studies, this introductory article examines what is meant by 'the sonic turn' as it relates to sound and music studies and how and why this should matter to the study of cities and of the urban experiences of citizens in the broadest sense. This introduction also summarizes aspects of the five papers in this collection, signalling the different approaches taken by each of the authors as evidence of the richness such sonic and musical investigations into the city and the urban experience can bring to urban cultural studies. With a focus on urban ethnography and on applied dimensions of research, particularly in the contemporary city, this article seeks to underscore the importance of listening to and hearing the city, especially for those citizens that do not necessarily have an 'official' voice or the technical means to interpret and engage with their sonic environments. Finally, this article suggests how sonic cultural interventions and engagements may assist, if not in social regeneration, at least in promoting a greater understanding of the complex sonic dimensions of city life as mediated and experienced by urban dwellers and as imagined by others
Locating culture, making soundscapes and activating critical social relations: A case study from Limerick SoundScapes( )

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

Limerick SoundScapes is a sound-mapping project that seeks to critically engage citizens of the multicultural, socially and economically divided post-industrial City of Limerick in the Republic of Ireland. Facilitated by an interdisciplinary team at the local university, citizens from all walks of life are encouraged to traverse the city, using hand-held recorders to capture a vast array of sounds and create soundscapes. Initially, we locate the project within the context of a city currently experiencing a state-sponsored programme of urban regeneration. The project is also understood in terms of top-down and bottom-up cultural initiatives, particularly in relation to Limerick's designation as National City of Culture 2014. In addition to looking at how Limerick SoundScapes was conceived and realized through a pilot programme in 2013, we focus specifically on two members of two local participating organizations as an example of how the project operates. Through the activities and experiences of these two volunteer recordists, we illustrate how the project is as much (if not more) focused on engagement and building social relations as it is on producing a finished product that seeks to sonically and culturally represent the city. Such projects have the capacity to promote real diversity and a critical and participatory citizenship through shared, creative goals and a dialogic of doing. However, we also show that culture is often understood in a particular way in Limerick, which we argue is to the detriment of investing in bottom-up projects that can potentially build 'institutional capacity' and boost 'civic creativity'
