Read and Download Andrew Milner book Literature, Culture and Society in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TLiterature, Culture and Society. This book was released on 2017-09-19 with total page 232 pages. Book excerpt: As cultural studies has grown from its origins on the margins of literary studies, it has tended to discard both literature and sociology in favour of the semiotics of popular culture. Literature, Culture and Society makes a determined attempt to re-establish the connections between literary studies, cultural studies and sociology. Arguing against both literary humanism and sociological relativism, it provides a critical overview of theoretical approaches to textual analysis, from hermeneutics to postmodernism, and presents a substantive account of the capitalist literary mode of production. This second edition has been fully revised and rewritten, with new sections including the impact of psychoanalysis and post-structuralism, and the recent work of academics such as Franco Moretti. New case studies have been added in order to examine the intertextual connections between Genesis, Milton's Paradise Lost, Frankenstein (in Mary Shelley's original and also in several film versions), Karel Capek's R.U.R., Fritz Lang's Metropolis, Ridley Scott's Blade Runner, The X-Files and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Read and Download Irene Rima Makaryk book Encyclopedia of Contemporary Literary Theory in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TEncyclopedia of Contemporary Literary Theory. This book was released on 1993-01-01 with total page 676 pages. Book excerpt: The last half of the twentieth century has seen the emergence of literary theory as a new discipline. As with any body of scholarship, various schools of thought exist, and sometimes conflict, within it. I.R. Makaryk has compiled a welcome guide to the field. Accessible and jargon-free, the Encyclopedia of Contemporary Literary Theory provides lucid, concise explanations of myriad approaches to literature that have arisen over the past forty years. Some 170 scholars from around the world have contributed their expertise to this volume. Their work is organized into three parts. In Part I, forty evaluative essays examine the historical and cultural context out of which new schools of and approaches to literature arose. The essays also discuss the uses and limitations of the various schools, and the key issues they address. Part II focuses on individual theorists. It provides a more detailed picture of the network of scholars not always easily pigeonholed into the categories of Part I. This second section analyses the individual achievements, as well as the influence, of specific scholars, and places them in a larger critical context. Part III deals with the vocabulary of literary theory. It identifies significant, complex terms, places them in context, and explains their origins and use. Accessibility is a key feature of the work. By avoiding jargon, providing mini-bibliographies, and cross-referencing throughout, Makaryk has provided an indispensable tool for literary theorists and historians and for all scholars and students of contemporary criticism and culture.

Read and Download Oliver Bennett book Cultural Policy Review of Books in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TCultural Policy Review of Books. This book was released on 2014-06-11 with total page 118 pages. Book excerpt: Cultures are shaped by many institutions and agencies, including governments, corporations, education and the media. In recent years, research into these culture-shaping activities has been increasingly associated with the developing field of cultural policy studies. The Cultural Policy Review of Books offers a fascinating insight into the intellectual formation of many of the leading figures that have contributed to this field. Invited to write a short review essay on the book that had most influenced their thinking, 41 academics and researchers from around the world reveal what they consider to be essential reading. Including essays on Bourdieu, de Certeau, Foucault, Gramsci, Habermas, and Williams, as well as many lesser known writers, the collection throws new light on the intellectual underpinning of cultural policy studies. It will be of interest not only to researchers, students and teachers in this field, but to all those looking to understand the forces that shape the culture of modern societies.

This book was released on 1990-01-01 with total page 872 pages. Book excerpt: This ambitious undertaking is designed to acquaint students, teachers, and researchers with reference sources in any branch of English studies, which Marcuse defines as "all those subjects and lines of critical and scholarly inquiry presently pursued by members of university departments of English language and literature.'' Within each of 24 major sections, Marcuse lists and annotates bibliographies, guides, reviews of research, encyclopedias, dictionaries, journals, and reference histories. The annotations and various indexes are models of clarity and usefulness, and cross references are liberally supplied where appropriate. Although cost-conscious librarians will probably consider the several other excellent literary bibliographies in print, such as James L. Harner's Literary Research Guide (Modern Language Assn. of America, 1989), larger academic libraries will want Marcuse's volume.-- Jack Bales, Mary Washington Coll.

Read and Download Robert E. Babe book Cultural Studies and Political Economy in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TCultural Studies and Political Economy. This book was released on 2010-05-10 with total page 250 pages. Book excerpt: This book addresses the notorious split between the two fields of cultural studies and political economy. Drawing on the works of Harold Innis, Theodor Adorno, Raymond Williams, Richard Hoggart, E.P. Thompson, and other major theorists in the two fields, Robert E. Babe shows that political economy can be reconciled to certain aspects of cultural studies, particularly with regards to cultural materialism. Uniting the two fields has proven to be a complex undertaking though it makes practical sense, given the close interaction between political economy and cultural studies. Babe examines the evolution of cultural studies over time and its changing relationship with political economy. The intersections between the two fields center around three subjects: the cultural biases of money, the time/space dialectic, and the dialectic of information.
Read and Download Craig Martin book Religious Experience in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TReligious Experience. This book was released on 2014-09-11 with total page 264 pages. Book excerpt: Many regard religious experience as the essence of religion, arguing that narratives might be created and rituals invented but that these are always secondary to the original experience itself. However, the concept of "experience" has come under increasing fire from a range of critics and theorists. This Reader presents writings from both those who assume the existence and possible universality of religious experience and those who question the very rhetoric of "experience". Bringing together both classic and contemporary writings, the Reader showcases differing disciplinary approaches to the study of religious experience: philosophy, literary and cultural theory, history, psychology, anthropology; feminist theory; as well as writings from within religious studies. The essays are structured into pairs, with each essay separately introduced with information on its historical and intellectual context. The ultimate aim of the Reader is to enable students to explore religious experience as rhetoric created to authorize social identities. The book will be an invaluable introduction to the key ideas and approaches for students of Religion, as well as Sociology and Anthropology.

McCutcheon, Wayne Proudfoot, Robert Sharf, Ann Taves, Charles Taylor, Joachim Wach, Joan Wallach Scott, Raymond Williams
Read and Download Michael O'Neill book Percy Bysshe Shelley in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TPercy Bysshe Shelley. This book was released on 1989-10-24 with total page 176 pages. Book excerpt: In 'Percy Bysshe Shelly: A Literary Life' , Michael O'Neill gives a knowledgeable and balanced account of Shelley's literary career from his earliest published work to his last unfinished masterpiece, The Triumph of Life . The book draws on recent research about the poet and his age, but its sense of the ways in which texts and contexts interact is sharply independent. Issues discussed include Shelley's social background, his radical politics and his complex response to Enlightenment rationalism. O'Neill stresses Shelley's often disappointed search for an audience, connecting it with the growing sophistication of his poetry and poetics. For Shelley, a poet was the 'combined product' of 'internal powers' and 'external influences' (Preface to Prometheus Unbound ); this book explores how such a combination manifests itself in his own writings.

Read and Download Ken Koltun-Fromm book Thinking Jewish Culture in America in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Free book TThinking Jewish Culture in America. This book was released on 2013-12-11 with total page 347 pages. Book excerpt: Thinking Jewish Culture in America argues that Jewish thought extends our awareness and deepens the complexity of American Jewish culture. This volume stretches the disciplinary boundaries of Jewish thought so that it can productively engage expanding arenas of culture by drawing Jewish thought into the orbit of cultural studies. The eleven contributors to Thinking Jewish Cultures, together with Chancellor Arnold Eisen’s postscript, position Jewish thought within the dynamics and possibilities of contemporary Jewish culture. These diverse essays in Jewish thought re-imagine cultural space as a public and sometimes contested performance of Jewish identity, and they each seek to re-enliven that space with reflective accounts of cultural meaning. How do Jews imagine themselves as embodied actors in America? Do cultural obligations limit or expand notions of the self? How should we imagine Jewish thought as a cultural performance? What notions of peoplehood might sustain a vibrant Jewish collectivity in a globalized economy? How do programs in Jewish studies work within the academy? These and other questions engage both Jewish thought and culture, opening space for theoretical works to broaden the range of cultural studies, and to deepen our understanding of Jewish cultural dynamics. Thinking Jewish Culture is a work about Jewish cultural identity reflected through literature, visual arts, philosophy, and theology. But it is more than a mere reflection of cultural patterns and choices: the argument pursued throughout Thinking Jewish Culture is that reflective sources help produce the very cultural meanings and performances they purport to analyze.

This book was released on 2021-01-21 with total page 720 pages. Book excerpt: Medienkultur als kritische Gesellschaftsanalyse steht für einen relationalen Ansatz, der kulturelle und mediale Praktiken als soziale Auseinandersetzungen erforscht. Im Zentrum der Diskussion stehen die sich daraus ergebenden Transformationen sowie ihre interdisziplinäre Verortung an der Schnittstelle zwischen Medien- und Kulturtheorie, Cultural Studies, Soziologie und Populärkulturforschung. Der Band versammelt Studien zu unterschiedlichen (medien-)kulturellen Phänomenen wie Filmen, Videos, Kunst, Games, Selfies, Shitstorms, Fake News, digitale Selbstvermessung sowie anderen populären, Jugend- und Subkulturen. Die theoretischen, methodologischen und empirischen Beiträge • befassen sich mit der Frage, was das transdisziplinäre Projekt der Cultural Studies zu leisten vermag angesichts aktueller gesellschaftspolitischer Entwicklungen wie z.B. Globalisierung und Populismus, • analysieren Filme und Populärkulturen als Seismografen gesellschaftlicher Transformationsprozesse, • fragen nach dem Eigensinn von Kultur und ihren sozialen Akteur*innen, • behandeln den Zusammenhang von soziokulturellen Dynamiken und gegenwärtigem Medienwandel (Digitalisierung, Datafizierung) und • diskutieren neue mediale Öffentlichkeiten und digitale Partizipationsformen. Damit würdigt der Band das Werk von Rainer Winter, das eine gesellschaftskritische Medien- und Kulturanalyse vertritt.
