Iranian Romance in the Digital Age (eBook, ePUB)
69,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Following the 1979 Islamic Revolution, there was a dramatic reversal of women's rights, and the state revived many premodern social conventions through modern means and institutions. Customs such as the enforced veiling of women, easy divorce for men, child marriage, and polygamy were robustly reintroduced and those who did not conform to societal strictures were severely punished. At the same time, new social and economic programs benefited the urban and rural poor, especially women, which had a direct impact on gender relations and the institution of marriage.Edited by Janet Afary and Jesilyn Faust, this interdisciplinary volume responds to the growing interest and need for literature on gender, marriage and family relations in the Islamic context. The book examines how the institution of marriage transformed in Iran, paying close attention to the country's culture and politics. Part One examines marital changes in the rural and tribal sectors of society through the works of anthropologists Erika Friedl and Mary Hegland. Part Two turns its eye to look at changes in urban marriages to new forms of cohabitation. In Part Three, the contributors explore the way technology and social media has impacted and altered the institution of family. Based on the work of new and established scholars, the collection provides an up-to-date study of an important and intensely politicized subject.

Sleater-Kinney's Dig Me Out
16,99 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Sleater-Kinney's 1997 album Dig Me Out is built on Corin Tucker and Carrie Brownstein's competing guitars, Janet Weiss's muscular rhythms, and layered vocals that teeter between an urgent, banshee-like vibrato and a lower accompaniment. Dig Me Out was the band's third studio album, but the first one written and recoded with Weiss. It inaugurated Sleater-Kinney into a lineup that would span its two-decade career. This 33 1/3 follows the narrative of Dig Me Out from its inception in Olympia to its recording in Seattle and its reception across the United States. It's anchored in a short period of time - roughly from mid-1996 to mid-1998 - but it encompasses a series of battles over meaning that continued to preoccupy Sleater-Kinney in the coming decades. The band wrestled with the media about how they would be presented to the public, it contended with technicians about how their sound would be heard in clubs, and they struggled with pervasive social hierarchies about how their work would be understood in popular culture. The only instance where the band didn't have to put up much of a fight was when it came to their fans. The acclaim Sleater-Kinney received from their listeners in the late 1990s, and continue to receive today, speaks to a need for icons who challenged normative notions of culture and gender. This story of Dig Me Out chronicles how Sleater-Kinney won the fight to define themselves on their own terms - as women and as musicians - and, in the process, how they redefined the parameters of rock.

Applied Live Art: Socially Engaged & Site-Respo...
41,90 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Applied Live Art looks at the ways in which performance can integrate participants and local context into the development of performance work. Three site-specific and socially engaged projects outline a methodology of practice that can integrate participants as co-authors. The book explores locale by delving into the rituals and myths in Naples, Italy, listening and sharing young people s stories on HIV/Aids in northern Ghana, and traversing the psychogeographic boundaries of memory in Beirut, Lebanon. The projects all experimented with the role of authorship, focusing on how a practitioner can shift the attention from the artist to the body politic. Applied Live Art is proposed as a term to describe practices that include a hybrid of time-based media options, which include a social component as their primary focus. For those interested in the social interventions of Tino Seghal and Santiago Sierra, or the artist walks of Francis Alÿs and Janet Cardiff, or the collaborative practices of Jeremy Deller and Suzanne Lacey this book will guide with practical and theoretical insight. Those who work with people and context and are interested in placemaking will benefit from this research.

Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814

ggf. zzgl. Versand

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation 1814 is the fourth studio album by American recording artist Janet Jackson, released on September 19, 1989 by A&M Records. Despite demands from A&M executives for material similar to her previous album, Control (1986), she insisted on creating a concept album addressing social injustice. Collaborating with her producers Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, she drew inspiration from news media, exploring subject matter such as racism, poverty and substance abuse. Although critics viewed the album's theme as transparent, she was hailed as a role model for youth because of her socially conscious lyrics. Produced during the height of the new jack swing genre, the album blends rhythm and blues with funk, industrial music and the utilization of swing note, synthesized percussion and sample loop. Songs on the album range from mechanized dance rhythms to soft balladry. Due to its innovative production and lyrical exploration, critics have regarded the album as the pinnacle of her artistic achievement. The supporting Rhythm Nation 1814 Tour became the world's most successful debut concert tour by a recording artist.

How Hollywood Works

This is a book about the US motion picture industry - its structure and policies, its operations and practices. It looks at the processes that are involved in turning raw materials and labor into feature films. It describes the process of film production, distribution, exhibition and retail - a process that involves different markets where materials, labor and products are bought and sold. In other words, this is a book about how Hollywood works - as an industry. How Hollywood Works: - offers an up-to-date survey of the policies and structure of the US film industry - looks at the relationship between the film industry and other media industries - examines the role of the major studios and the other 'players' - including, law firms, talent agents, and trade unions and guilds - provides access to hard-to-find statistical information on the industry While many books describe the film production and marketing process, they usually do so from an industry perspective and few look at Hollywood critically from within a more general economic, political and social context. By offering just such a critique, Janet Wasko's text provides a timely and essential analysis of how Hollywood works for all students of film and media.
