The cultural set up of comedy : affective politics in the United States post 9/11 by Julie A Webber( )

4 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do various forms of comedy - including stand-up, satire, and film and television - transform contemporary invocations of nationalism and citizenship in youth cultures? And how are attitudes about gender, race, and sexuality transformed through comedic performances on social media? This book seeks to answer these questions by examining comedic performances by Chris Rock and Louis C.K., news parodies like the 'The Daily Show' and 'The Colbert Report', the role of satire in the Arab Spring, and the groundbreaking performances by women in 'Bridesmaids'. Breaking with the usual cultural studies debates over how to conceptualize youth, the book instead focuses on the comedic cultural and political scripts that frame affective strategies post-9/11

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 729 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How can plays and performances, past and present, inform our understanding of aging? Drawing primarily on the Western dramatic canon, on contemporary British theater, on popular culture, and on paratheatrical practices, this book investigates theatrical engagement with aging from the Greek chorus to Reminiscence Theater. It also explores the relationship of the plays, performances, and practices to the material, social, and ideological conditions that produced them. A foundational work on the cultural past and present of aging, the book will find ... audiences not only among scholars but also among theater and health care professionals."--Provided by publisher

Manifesto now! : instructions for performance, philosophy, politics by Laura Cull( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Manifesto now! maps the current rebirth of the manifesto as it appears at the crossroads of philosophy, performance, and politics. While the manifesto has been central to histories of modernity and Modernism, the editors contend that its contemporary resurgence demands a renewed interrogation of its form, its content, and the uses. Featuring contributions from trailblazing artists, scholars, and activists currently working in the United States, the United Kingdom, Finland, and Norway, this volume will be indispensable to scholars across the disciplines. Filled with examples of manifestos and critical thinking about manifestos, it contains a wide variety of critical methodologies that students can analyze, deconstruct, and emulate
Gavin Bolton's contextual drama : the road less travelled by Timothy Burke( )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Gavin Bolton's contextual drama is the result of more than two decades of study of Bolton's theory and practice. For teachers and those in the caring professions, it will clarify the power of contextual drama as a beneficial learning medium for children and adults, both within and beyond the classroom. The core of the book is a detailed analysis of nine examples of the contextual drama mode; the first five demonstrate and analyze Bolton's practice with children and young people and the final four describe his teaching with adults. Each chapter is framed by an introduction that contextualizes Bolton, from his initial beginnings working with visually and aurally-challenged children to his position as reader in drama at Durham University. The final two chapters offer reflection on the nature of this work and, in particular, the significance of Bolton's contributions to education."--Page 4 of cover

Swedish cops : from Sjöwall and Wahlöö to Stieg Larsson by Michael Tapper( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Michael Tapper considers Swedish culture and ideas from the period 1965 to 2012 as expressed in detective fiction and film in the tradition of Maj Sjöwall and Per Wahlöö. Believing the Swedish police narrative tradition to be part and parcel of the European history of ideas and culture, Tapper argues that, from being feared and despised, the police emerged as heroes and part of the modern social project of the welfare state after World War II."--Publishers website
Some wear leather, some wear lace : the worldwide compendium of postpunk and goth in the 1980s by Andi Harriman( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It was a scene that had many names: some original members referred to themselves as punks, others, new romantics, new wavers, the bats, or the morbids. "Goth" did not gain lexical currency until the late 1980s. But no matter what term was used, "postpunk" encompasses all the incarnations of the 1980s alternative movement. Some Wear Leather, Some Wear Lace is a visual and oral history of the first decade of the scene. Featuring interviews with both the performers and the audience to capture the community on and off stage, the book places personal snapshots alongside professional photography to reveal a unique range of fashions, bands, and scenes. Alongside rare photographs, the interviewees discuss the motivations behind the dark aesthetic: the fashion, the art and, most of all, the music --
Wiener chic : a locational history of Vienna fashion by Susan Ingram( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vienna may not be synonymous with fashion like its metropolitan counterparts Paris and Milan, but it is a fashionable city, one that historically has been structured by changing fashions and fashionable appearances. Like the Litfaßsaule in Orson Welles's 1949 urban noir masterpiece The Third Man, into which Harry Lime escapes in order to avoid capture and which hapless visitors today presume are merely surfaces for advertising, there are many overlooked aspects of Vienna's distinct style and attitude. By focusing on fashion, Wiener Chic narrates Vienna's history through an interpretation of the material dimensions of Viennese cultural life?from architecture to arts festivals to the urban fabric of street chic. The first book that connects Vienna and fashion with urban theory, this book draws on material that is virtually unknown in an English-language context to give readers an insider's vantage point on an underappreciated European fashion capital
Fashion & war in popular culture by Denise N Rall( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Aside from the occasional nod to epaulets or use of camouflage, war and fashion seem to be strange partners. Not so, argue the contributors to this book, who connect military industrial practices as well as military dress to textile and clothing in new ways. For instance, the book includes a series of commentaries on the impact of military dress in the airline industry, in illustrated wartime comics, and even considers today's muscled soldier's body as a new type of uniform. Elsewhere, the effects of conquest introduce a new set of postcolonial aesthetics as military and colonial regimes disrupt local textile production and garment making. In another chapter, it is argued that textiles and fashion are important because they reflect a core practice, one that bridges textile artists and designers in an expressive, creative, and deeply physical way to matters of cultural significance. And the book concludes by calling the very mode of "military chic" into ethical question. The premier text to illustrate the impact of war on textiles, bodies, costume, art, and design, Fashion and War in Popular Culture will be warmly welcomed by scholars of fashion design and theory, historians of fashion, and those interested in theories of warfare and military science
