              Emotions, Genre, Justice in Film and Television: Detecting Feeling (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              By Pribram, Deidre

              Popular film and television are ideally suited in understanding how emotions create culturally shared meanings. Yet very little has been done in this area. Emotion, Genre, and Justice in Film and Television explores textual representations of emotions from a cultural perspective,... rather than in biological or psychological terms. It considers emotions as structures of feeling that are collectively shared and historically developed. Through their cultural meanings and uses, emotions enable social identities to be created and contested, to become fixed or alter. Popular narratives often take on emotional significance, aiding groups of people in recognizing or expressing what they feel and who they are. This book focuses on the justice genres - the generic network of film and television programs that are concerned with crime, law, and social order - to examine how fictional police, detective, and legal stories participate in collectively realized conceptions of emotion. A range of films (Crash, Man on Fire) and television series (Cold Case,Cagney and Lacey) serve as case studies to explore contemporarily relevant representations of anger, fear, loss and consolation, and compassion.

              Nation branding--a set of ideas rooted in Western marketing--gained popularity in the post-communist world by promising a quick fix for the identity malaise of transitional societies. Since 1989, almost every country in Central and Eastern Europe has engaged in nation branding in...itiatives of varying scope and sophistication. For the first time, this volume collects in one place studies that examine the practices and discourses of the nation branding undertaken in these countries. In addition to documenting various rebranding initiatives, these studies raise important questions about their political and cultural implications.

              This volume examines how the field of Chicana/o studies has developed to become an area of interest to scholars far beyond the United States and Spain. For this reason, the volume includes contributions by a range of international scholars and takes the concept of place as a unif...ying paradigm. As a way of overcoming borders that are both physical and metaphorical, it seeks to reflect the diversity and range of current scholarship in Chicana/o studies while simultaneously highlighting the diverse and constantly evolving nature of Chicana/o identities and cultures. Various critical and theoretical approaches are evident, from eco-criticism and autoethnography in the first section, to the role of fiction and visual art in exposing injustice in section two, to the discussion of transnational and transcultural exchange with reference to issues as diverse as the teaching of Chicana/o studies in Russia and the relevance of Anzaldua's writings to post 9/11 U.S. society.

              Radio's Digital Dilemma: Broadcasting in the Twenty-First Century
               

              Radio's Digital Dilemma: Broadcasting in the Twenty-First Century (Hardback)

              Radio s Digital Dilemma chronicles the development of digital radio broadcasting, which has been fraught with difficulty as evidenced by the fact that what we have come to understand as radio in the twentieth century still has no feasible digital broadcast component. As we approa...ch the centennial of radio broadcasting, with Internet-inspired media convergence well apace, the medium s struggle to navigate digitalization raises previously unexplored questions about the future identity of radio itself. Its digital dilemma also stands as a parable about the dangerous prioritization of certain political and economic principles over scientific integrity in contemporary media policymaking. This book closely interrogates the record of FCC deliberation and trade press coverage of the issue and reveals how the U.S. digital radio standard is not the outcome of thinking about the medium s convergent future. Furthermore, Anderson addresses new audio distribution technologies born out of convergence that in turn complicate how broadcasting is defined. In essence, Anderson explores why the U.S. digital radio transition has stalled and may actually be regressing.

              Art Platforms and Cultural Production on the Internet
               

              Art Platforms and Cultural Production on the Internet (Hardback)

              By Goriunova, Olga

              Culture is increasingly co-produced by networked media technologies. Digital cultures thrive on creativity, developing new forces of organization to overcome repetition and reach brilliance. In order to understand the processes that produce culture, Goriunova introduces the conce...pt of the art platform. An art platform is a specific configuration of creative passions, codes, events, individuals, and works that are propelled by cultural currents and maintained through digitally native means. Art platforms can occur in numerous contexts bringing about genuinely new cultural production that, given enough force, come together to sustain an open mechanism while negotiating social, technical, and political modes of power. Amateur and folklore work, aesthetic forms of organization and geeky publics, creativity, freedom, and humour are reinterpreted in the theoretical apparatus offered in this book and tested through case studies derived globally. Software art, digital forms of literature, 8-bit music, 3D art forms, pro-surfers, and networks of geeks are test beds for enquiry into what brings and holds art platforms together. Goriunova provides new means of understanding the development of cultural forms on the Internet, placing the phenomena of participatory and social netowrks in a conceptual and historical perspective, and offering powerful tools for researching cultural phenomena overlooked by other approaches. This book is an invaluable resource for scholars of digital media and cultural studies, and a readership involved in every kind of network culture.

              Reclaiming Critical Remix Video: The Role of Sampling in Transformative Works
               

              Reclaiming Critical Remix Video: The Role of Sampling in Transformative Works (Hardback)

              Remix is now considered by many to be a form of derivative work, but such generalizations have resulted in numerous non-commercial remixes being wrongfully accused of copyright infringement. Gallagher argues, however, that remix is a fundamentally transformative practice. The ass...umption that cultural works should be considered a form of private property is called into question in the digital age; thus, he proposes an alternative system to balance the economic interests of cultural producers with the ability of the public to engage with a growing intellectual commons of cultural works. Multimodal analyses of both remixed and non-remixed intertextual work, with a particular focus on examples of critical remix video, fuel the discussion, synthesizing a number of investigative methods including semiotic, rhetorical and ideological analysis.

              Media education for digital citizenship is predicated upon the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and produce media content and communication in a variety of forms. While many media literacy approaches overemphasize the end-goal of accessing digital media content through the ac...quisition of various technology, software, apps and analytics, this book argues that the goals for comprehensive and critical digital literacy require grasping the means through which communication is created, deployed, used, and shared, regardless of which tools or platforms are used for meaning making and social interaction. Drawing upon the intersecting matrices of digital literacy and media literacy, the volume provides a framework for developing critical digital literacies by exploring the necessary skills and competencies for engaging students as citizens of the digital world.
