Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity, Duncan Kennedy
1 Duncan Kennedy Sexy Dressing Etc. Essays on the Power and Politics of Cultural Identity
Harvard University Press 227643 USA 1993 0674802977 / 9780674802971 Softcover Very Good Condition Duncan Kennedy argues that an American radicalism is both possible and desirable. One base for radical politics is the big institutional workplace; another is popular culture--whence his emphasis on phenomena like sexy dressing. Kennedy's aim is to wed the rebelliousness, irony, and irrationalism of cultural modernism and postmodernism to the earnestness of political correctness. 258 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Essays; Essays & Literary Criticism; Culture. ISBN: 0674802977. ISBN/EAN: 9780674802971. Inventory No: 227643. Paperback

The Elsewhere Community, Hugh Kenner
2 Hugh Kenner The Elsewhere Community
Allen & Unwin 241255 Australia 1998 1864488727 / 9781864488722 Softcover Very Good Condition 'This grand tour of books, writers and places both physical and of the mind - conducted by one of the grand critics and teachers of our time - is above all a highly civilised confirmation that, when all is said and done, great literature is the source of profound insights into the unchanging nature of human experience.' Andrew Riemer'.Kenner's book is both a time capsule and eloquent reminiscence. Anyone interested in mid-twentieth century literature and criticism should read it.' Mark Davis'Sunlight unwinds from the pages in this trip of a lifetime. It's On the Road with the best minds of all generations, from Galileo to Bugs Bunny, from cyber seniors to the girl next door. A joyride.' Richard NevilleExile, identity and fantasy were the themes of the Massey Lectures delivered by internationally acclaimed man of letters Hugh Kenner. The Elsewhere Community provocatively examines the idea that Western culture has a constant need for stimulation encountered elsewhere. Kenner traces this trend from the eighteenth century's Grand Tour, wherein young Englishmen travelled Europe before beginning their careers, to the self-imposed exile of modernist writers, to the disembodied global journeys the Internet offers up to us today.Hugh Kenner is the Fuller E. Callaway Professor of English at the University of Georgia. He has published over thirty books, including studies of Ezra pound, Samuel Beckett, James Joyce and Bugs Bunny!Following the success of John Ralston Saul's Massey Lectures The Unconscious Civilization ABC Radio National will broadcast The Elsewhere Community over Christmas 1998. 113 pages.

Micro Trends: Surprising Tales of the Way We Live Today, Mark J. Penn with E. Kinney Zalesne
3 Mark J. Penn with E. Kinney Zalesne Micro Trends: Surprising Tales of the Way We Live Today
Penguin Books 235678 Great Britain 2008 0141036842 / 9780141036847 Softcover Good Condition Mark Penn argues that the biggest trends in America are the Microtrends, the smaller trends that go unnoticed or ignored. One million people can create new market for a business, spark a social movement, or effect political change. In 1996, a microtrend identified by Penn ("soccer moms") was crucial in re-electing President Clinton. With years of experience as one of world's most highly regarded pollsters, Mark Penn identifies the new microtrends sweeping the world: *Single women by choice: More often than ever before, they aren't waiting for Mr. Right. They are raising children by themselves and buying their own homes. *Splitters: A growing number of middle-class residents are shuttling between two homes, creating new communities and dynamics in the real estate market. *Sun Haters: Environmentalists, skin cancer survivors, and parents concerned about the impact the sun is having on our health. *Philo-semites: A growing number of people want to date Jewish men and women. *Classical Music Dads: Older men who are fathers in their 40's and 50's and taking on a larger role in the nurturing of their children and becoming an important factor in consumer culture for kids. Penn highlights everything from religion to politics, from leisure pursuits to relationships. MICROTRENDS will take the reader deep into the worlds of polling, targeting, and psychographic analysis, reaching tantalizing conclusions through engaging analysis. 425 pages. Quantity Available: 1.

Shame and Its Sisters: A Silvan Tomkins Reader, ve Kosofsky Sedgwick an Adam Frank [Editors]
6 ve Kosofsky Sedgwick an Adam Frank [Editors] Shame and Its Sisters: A Silvan Tomkins Reader
Duke University Press 234323 USA 1995 0822316943 / 9780822316947 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition With a biographical sketch by Irving E. Alexander. The question of affect is central to critical theory, psychology, politics, and the entire range of the humanities; but no discipline, including psychoanalysis, has offered a theory of affect that would be rich enough to account for the delicacy and power, the evanescence and durability, the bodily rootedness and the cultural variability of human emotion.Silvan Tomkins (1911-1991) was one of the most radical and imaginative psychologists of the twentieth century. In Affect, Imagery, Consciousness, a four-volume work published over the last thirty years of his life, Tomkins developed an ambitious theory of affect steeped in cybernetics and systems theory as well as in psychoanalysis, ethology, and neuroscience. The implications of his conceptually daring and phenomenologically suggestive theory are only now-in the context of postmodernism-beginning to be understood. With Shame and Its Sisters, editors Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick and Adam Frank make available for the first time an engaging and accessible selection of Tomkins's work. Featuring intensive examination of several key affects, particularly shame and anger, this volume contains many of Tomkins's most haunting, diagnostically incisive, and theoretically challenging discussions. An introductory essay by the editors places Tomkins's work in the context of postwar information technologies and will prompt a reexamination of some of the underlying assumptions of recent critical work in cultural studies and other areas of the humanities. The text is also accompanied by a biographical sketch of Tomkins by noted psychologist Irving E. Alexander, Tomkins's longtime friend and collaborator. 268 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Psychology; Psychology & Psychiatry; Culture. ISBN/EAN: 9780822316947. Inventory No: 234323. Paperback
