      Summary
      • This book is about war and popular culture, and war in popular culture. Tara Brabazon summons, probes, questions and reclaims popular culture, challenging the assumptions of war, whiteness, Christianity, modernity and progress that have dominated our lives since September 11.A Addressing modes of thinking, design, music and visual media, Thinking Popular Culture offers a journey through courageous, interventionist and thoughtful ideas, performers and cultures. It welcomes those who ask difficult questions of those in power.A Addressing the lack of imagination and dissent that characterizes this new century, it is essential reading for any scholar of cultural studies and popular culture, media and journalism, creative writing and terrorism studies.
      • Review: The Times Higher Education's Book of the Week 'Tara Brabazon has ushered cultural studies out of the drawing room and prodded it back onto the streets, where it matters more than ever.' Justin O'Connor, Queensland University of Technology, Australia 'Brabazon is a "war writer", grappling not with the culture wars but with war itself, including the wars within. She offers a cultural studies approach to the period between 9/11 and the present. Her elegiac essays range widely. Brilliant Brabazon is an antidote to the Bush "war presidency" and its dispiriting denouement. She makes cultural studies matter again.' Ben Agger, University of Texas at Arlington, USA 'Tara Brabazon has written a beautiful, passionate, and political book about popular culture in which the learning of pleasure is matched by the pleasure of learning, critique, and civic engagement. One cannot think about politics without engaging popular culture as a powerful educational force, and Thinking Popular Culture is one of the best books available to confront this crucial question with great insight, enormous courage, and sense of social responsibility.' Henry Giroux, McMaster University, Canada 'There is no one else with Brabazon's combination of raucousness and subtlety, offensive pugnacity and dazzling charm, terrific garrulity and razor incisiveness...Indeed, this packed and fizzing book is in many of its sections a celebration sung over the great achievements and works of art wrung from this epoch by both television and the great frescoes of popular culture, especially rock music, which provides its staple...Thinking Popular Culture reads like a pasted-together but perfectly coherent series of shortish newspaper articles. I don't know whether or not this is the case, but the point is really that this swift, darting movement of the author's mind from topic to subject permits her to spin a long, ravelling and gossamer thread of continuity and connectedness along the multitudinous quiddity of popular and televised cultural life.' The Times Higher Education 'The span of the issues discussed is overwhelming and yet Brabazon manages to address all of them with expertise, profound knowledge and passion, regardless of whether she is talking about guitar chords, reality television, internet search engines or cultural theories about the work-place and masculinity... Every essay can stand alone and yet 'the chapters [...] chatter amongst themselves' and, through the analysis of a wide range of cultural artifacts, work together in outlining a complex network of both dominant and resistant discourses... Some books matter. Some books are relevant. Some books have the power to take the written word and use it to change the world. Thinking Popular Culture has the capacity, the intelligence and the breadth of ideas to incite resistance and inspire such change, one thought at a time.' Cultural Sociology

      Summary
      • A wide-ranging study that examines everything from the blockbuster movie franchise Les Boys to the sovereigntist hip hop group Loco Locass, Hockey, PQ explores how Canada's national sport has been used to signify a specific Quebecois identity. Amy J. Ransom analyzes how Quebecois writers, filmmakers, and musicians have appropriated symbols like the Montreal Forum, Maurice Richard, or the 1972 Summit Series to construct or critique images of the Quebecois male. Close analyses of hockey-themed narratives consider the soap opera Lance et compte ('He shoots, he scores'), the music of former pro player Bob Bisonnette, folk band Mes Aieux, rock group Les Dales Hawerchuk, and the fiction of Francois Barcelo. Through these examinations of the role hockey plays in contemporary francophone popular culture, Ransom shows how Quebec's popular culture uses hockey to distinguish French-Canadians from the French and to rally them against their English-speaking counterparts. In the end, however, this study illuminates how the sport of hockey unites the two solitudes.
      • Review: 'Scholars who are looking into the question of how hockey resonates with Quebec and Canadian culture will have to make a reference to this work that looks at a region that is often missing from other studies.' -- J. Andrew Ross Journal of Canadian Studies vol 49:03:2015

      Lesbian images in international popular culture / edited by Sara E. Cooper.

      Summary
      • Lesbian images are everywhere these days-cable television, film, popular magazines, advertising, Internet and the news-creating desire in men and women alike, selling commercial products and services, and stirring up controversy on many levels. But do these images truly represent the diverse identities of women-centered women worldwide? This book addresses the limited access to images of diverse and international lesbian identities and experiences, in order to provide the reader with a more complete understanding of what it means to be lesbian in a global context. It investigates how lesbians portray themselves as well as how they are portrayed by others in several areas of popular culture, including television, film, the arts, Internet, advertising and the news. It features articles on U.S. lesbian cartoonists, Canadian viewer perceptions of lesbians on the cable show Queer as Folk, panoramic looks at lesbians' representation in Australian and Spanish television programming, and in-depth explorations of films by Spanish director Pedro Almodovar, leading Indian film producers, and independent Chinese-American filmmakers. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Lesbian Studies.

      Summary
      • A concise history of smoking in British popular culture from the early-19th century to the end of the 20th century. It explores the culture of the pipe and the cigar in the 19th century, the role of the cigarette in the mass market economy of the early-20th century, and the politics of smoking and health since the 1950s. Hilton argues that a particular culture of smoking celebrated at the end of the 19th century, together with certain economic and political forces, came to dominate the meaning of tobacco within popular culture, and acted as an important bulwark against state intervention in the sphere of public health. By combining a wide range of historical sources with examples drawn from film and popular literature to provide a comprehensive social, cultural and economic history of smoking, the book traces the production, promotion and consumption of tobacco as well as outlining the arguments that have variously opposed this ever-controversial drug. Important themes explored include the importance of consumption to constructions of masculinity and femininity, the role of the state in the official regulation of the "minor vices", the morality of consumption and the position of scientific knowledge within popular culture.

      Massacre at the Champ de Mars. Popular Dissent and Political Culture in the French Revolution

      Summary
      • On 17 July 1791 the revolutionary National Guard of Paris opened fire on a crowd of protesters: citizens believing themselves patriots trying to save France from the reinstatement of a traitor king. To the National Guard and their political superiors the protesters were the dregs of the people, brigands paid by counter-revolutionary aristocrats. Politicians and journalists declared the National Guard the patriots, and their action a heroic defence of the fledgling Constitution. Under the Jacobin Republic of 1793, however, this 'massacre' was regarded as a high crime, a moment of truth in which a corrupt elite exposed its treasonable designs. This detailed study of the events of July 1791 and their antecedents seeks to understand how Parisians of different classes understood 'patriotism', and how it was that their different answers drove them to confront each other on the Champ de Mars. DAVID ANDRESS is senior lecturer in Modern European History, University of Portsmouth.

      Summary
      • Popular culture in England at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution was largely rural; by the end of the 19th century it had become a mainly urban - and highly commercialized - phenomenon. It had changed from a culture of leisure pursuits related to the church year and blood sports like cock-fighting to one of music hall, seaside holidays and football leagues. Throughout, however, popular culture defiantly resisted the attempts of religious and political reformers to make it serious and rational. This text argues, however, that there was no great cultural watershed as industrialization and urbanization proceeded, and stresses the degree to which pre-industrial popular culture was already commercialized. It also rejects the view that the working class was manipulated and transformed by the "capitalist bourgeoisie". Its theme is continuity and survival rather than change. It highlights too the increasing similiarities between the pastimes of the rich and the poor - with middle class habits gradually and spontaneously adopted by the lower classes, while the football and dancing of the lower classes became more popular amongst the wealthy.

      Title

      The state question in Chinese popular culture : a special issue of 'Positions' / edited by Jing Wang.

      Published
      • Duke University Press 2001
      ISBN
      • 0822364913
      Summary
      • The "State Question in Chinese Popular Culture" presents a series of groundbreaking essays that challenge the paradigm dividing Chinese culture into "official" and "unofficial" categories. This binary, which mirrors the "high/low" dichotomy familiar to all practitioners of cultural studies, finds its roots in Cold-War Western romanticization of a Chinese popular culture that stood in defiant opposition to the Communist state. This special issue disputes such simplistic representations and offers new critical trajectories crucial to the study of contemporary Chinese popular culture. By reinscribing the state into a discussion of popular culture, these articles reach beyond the postmodernist and transnational trends in analyzing the pop syndrome and engage in methodological questions specific to post-socialist China. Locating intellectual agendas in history and locality while interrogating theorization for theory's own sake, they shed new light on how we interpret the Chinese "consumer and cultural revolution" of the 1990s. Featuring articles on contemporary self-health literature, advertising, best-selling novels, religious rituals, leisure culture, and religious tourism, this special issue illuminates the complex diversity of popular culture and thus reveals the dangers inherent in maintaining the official/unofficial split. As the first collection made under the auspices of the collaborative Luce Project, this special issue brings together China scholars from across national and disciplinary borders to shape an intellectually responsible agenda for Chinese popular studies.
