This dialogue of one : essays on poets from John Donne to Joan Murray
Ford, Mark, 1962 June 24-
London, United Kingdom : Eyewear Publishing Ltd., 2014
Fevers of the Bone: John Donne -- Walt Whitman's Democratic Vistas -- The Double Vision of Baudelaire -- City of Pain: The Poetry of James Thomson -- Saint Emily -- Owls, Bicycles, Bailiffs: The Pataphysical Life of Alfred Jarry -- Ezra Pound's Letters Home -- Dark Caverns: The Correspondence of T.S. Eliot -- Who Seekest Thy Woob? Samuel Greenberg and Hart Crane -- Industrious Auden -- A.S.J. Tessimond and Bernard Spencer -- Child Randall -- Joan Murray and the Bats of Wisdom.

Literary Nonfiction. Essays. Poetry. THIS DIALOGUE OF ONE collects thirteen essays on English, French and American poets by one of the era's most engaging and highly esteemed poet-critics. Like Randall Jarrell, whose achievement is assessed here, Ford combines a refreshing openness to innovation with an authoritative awareness of what makes a poem stand the test of time. Witty, astute and wide-ranging, Ford demonstrates his formidable gifts as a close reader of poetry, whether exploring canonical works by the likes of Whitman, Dickinson, Baudelaire and T.S. Eliot, or championing the cause of neglected figures such as James Thomson, Samuel Greenberg and Joan Murray. As John Lanchester once observed of Ford's essays, "If more literary criticism were like this, more people would read it." --Provided by publisher.

R.W. Fassbinder, die Filme : ein Illustriertes Werkverzeichnis aller 44 Kino- und Fernsehfilme 1966 bis 1982 mit 1368 Filmbildern und 46 Photographien
Juliane Lorenz, Lothar Schirmer (Hrsg.) ; mit Texten von Laurence Kardish, Juliane Lorenz und Lothar Schirmer sowie Rainer Werner Fassbinder
München ; Schirmer/Mosel in Zusammenarbeit mit der RWF Foundation, [2016]
Das Lebenswerk von Rainer Werner Fassbinder umfasst 44 Filme. Als er am 10. Juni 1982 in München starb, war er gerade 37 Jahre alt. In atemberaubender Geschwindigkeit hatte er ab 1966 in nur 17 Jahren sein gewaltiges schöpferisches Werk wie ein ästhetisches Gebirge vor der staunenden Welt aufgetürmt. Beeinflusst von der poetischen Raffinesse des Dichters und Dramatikers Bert Brecht, der filmischen Eleganz eines Jean-Luc Godard und inspiriert von der lakonischen Aneignung des Profanen durch Andy Warhol, entwickelte Fassbinder in seinen Filmen .. eine eindringliche, kraftvolle Bildsprache von ganz eigener Poesie. Und da er in seinen Filmen meist von den traurigen Spielarten der Liebe erzählte, wurde alsbald eine Weltsprache daraus. In der genauen und liebevollen Beschreibung der westdeutschen gesellschaftlichen Verhältnisse nach dem Kriegsende und vor dem Mauerfall sind seine Filme zu einem nationalen Monument deutscher Geschichte geworden.

"Jewish Books and their Readers discusses the transformative effect of the circulation and readership of sacred and secular texts written by Jews on Christian as well as Jewish readers in early modern Europe. Its twelve essays challenge traditional paradigms of Christian Hebraism and undermine simplistic visions of the unchanging nature of Jewish cultural life. They ask what constituted a 'Jewish' book: how it was presented, disseminated, and understood within both Jewish and Christian environments (and how its meanings were contested), and what effect such understanding had on contemporary views of Jews and their intellectual heritage. They demonstrate how the involvement of Christians in the production and dissemination of Jewish books played a role in the shaping of the intellectual life of Jews and Christians. Contributors are: Michela Andreatta, Andrew Berns, Theodor Dunkelgrün, Federica Francesconi, Anthony Grafton Alessandro Guetta, William Horbury, Yosef Kaplan, Scott Mandelbrote, Piet van Boxel, Joanna Weinberg Benjamin Williams"--

All strangers are kin : adventures in Arabic and the Arab world
O'Neill, Zora
Boston : Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2016
Egypt. Empty talk ; Inside the word factory ; A prophecy ; Two tongues ; See what we did ; Where's your ear? ; Days of rage ; Hidden fingers ; Illuminating the house ; Graduation day -- The Gulf. Knowledge village ; Practical, fashion, extreme ; When your ear hears ; Eau de Facebook ; What he did not know ; Heritage club ; The best people ; Supreme poets ; Develop! -- Lebanon. The new Beirut ; What is the rule? ; We don't talk about politics here ; Almost a dead language ; Your mother ; Easy--but not good ; The weird uncle ; Pierre and his friends ; We have not taught the Prophet the price ; Land of thorns -- Morocco. Daddy, Mommy, Gramps ; The place where the sun sets ; You pour the tea ; God is beautiful ; Speaking Mexican ; Let's chat in Arabic ; Sweet sensation ; Up in the old hotel ; What is the name of this? ; Crossing the bridge.

If you've ever studied a foreign language, you know what happens when you first truly and clearly communicate with another person. As Zora O'Neill recalls, you feel like a magician. They say that Arabic takes seven years to learn and a lifetime to master. Steeped in grammar tomes and outdated textbooks, O'Neill faced an increasing certainty that she was not only failing to master Arabic, but also driving herself crazy. She took a decade-long hiatus, but couldn't shake her fascination with the language or the cultures it had opened up to her. So she decided to jump back in--this time with a new approach. Join O'Neill for a grand tour through the Middle East. You will laugh with her in Egypt, delight in the stories she passes on from the United Arab Emirates, and find yourself transformed by her experiences in Lebanon and Morocco. She's packed her dictionaries, her unsinkable sense of humor, and her talent for making fast friends of strangers. From quiet streets to crowded medinas, from families' homes to local hotspots, she brings a part of the world that is thousands of miles away right to your door, reminding us that learning another tongue leaves you rich with so much more than words.--Adapted from dust jacket.

What postcolonial theory doesn't say
Edited by Anna Bernard, Ziad Elmarsafy, and Stuart Murray
New York ; Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group, 2016
"This book reclaims postcolonial theory, addressing persistent limitations in the geographical, disciplinary, and methodological assumptions of its dominant formations, and emerging from an investment in the future of postcolonial studies and a commitment to its basic premise; namely the conception of particular cultural and literary articulations in relation to larger structures of colonial and imperial domination as a way of putting the theory back in postcolonial theory. To a certain extent, postcolonial theory is a victim of its own success, in part from the institutionalization of the insights that it has enabled: now that they no longer seem new, it is hard to know what the field's work should be beyond these general commitments, or what its practitioners should be debating. The renewal of popular anti-imperial energies across the globe provides a rare opportunity to reassert the political and theoretical value of the postcolonial as a comparative, interdisciplinary, and oppositional paradigm. This collection makes a claim for what postcolonial theory can say through the work of scholars articulating what it still cannot or will not say. It explores ideas that a more aesthetically sophisticated postcolonial theory might be able to address, focusing on questions of visibility, performance, and literariness. Contributors highlight some of the shortcomings of current postcolonial theory in relation to contemporary political developments such as Zimbabwean land reform, postcommunism, and the economic rise of East Asia. Finally, they address the disciplinary, geographical, and methodological exclusions from postcolonial studies through a detailed focus on new disciplinary directions (management studies, theories of the state), overlooked places and perspectives (Palestine, Weimar Germany, the environmentalism of the poor), and the necessity of materialist analysis for understanding both world and world literary systems"--

Veiled figures : women, modernity, and the spectres of orientalism
Heffernan, Teresa, 1962-
Toronto : University Of Toronto Press, [2016]
Islam, the Enlightenment, and the veil -- The great whore of Babylon: cosmopolitanism and racialized nationalism -- Two western women venture east: Lady Annie Brassey and Anna Bowman Dodd -- The Great War and its aftermath: militarized citizens, (un)veiled bodies, and the nation -- The burqa and the bikini: veiling and unveiling at the turn of the twenty-first century.

"In Veiled Figures, Teresa Heffernan explores how the clash of civilizations is perpetuated by the rhetoric of veiling and unveiling. Drawing on travel narratives, harem literature, and other stories, Heffernan argues that womens bodies have been used to exacerbate the divide between religion and reason in the eighteenth century, the Islamic umma and the Western nation in the nineteenth, and Islamism and global capitalism in the contemporary period. Through the study of the writings of Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, Anna Bowman Dodd, Demetra Vaka Brown, Zeyneb Hanoum, and others, Heffernans book demonstrates the ways in which these works complicate and interrupt these divides, opening up new opportunities for a more constructive dialogue between East and West." --

Novels and the sociology of the contemporary
Szakolczai, Árpád
New York : Routledge, 2016
Preface -- Introduction: novels and the problem of reality -- The triple origins of the modern novel -- The Don Quixote chronotope: paradoxical paradoxes, or the games of Cervantes -- The Rabelais chronotope: the mysteries of fairground economics -- The English chronotope: the cruel illusionism of realism -- Actors, spectators and critics in the sublime theatre of the public arena -- Sublime confusion: the aesthetics of intensity as an anti-Platonic revolt -- Diderot, the trickster-outsider-critic: the actor as god in an enlightened world -- Lessing, the trickster-outsider-critic: the birth of German enlightenment out of the spirit of theatre -- The Goethe chronotope: in between panopticon and circus -- Johann Wolfgang Goethe: demonic formation and theatrical re-formation -- Wilhelm Meister as Goethe's self-overcoming: from theatrical mission to walking -- Promethean modernity in Faust: from asserting titanic poiesis to diagnosing alchemic technology -- Beneath and beyond romantic enlightenment -- Enlightened romantics: from German titanism to French satanism -- Charles Dickens: retrieving the reasons of the heart -- Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky: standing up again after the demonic splits of reason -- Conclusion: towards the sacrificial carnival.

"This book substantiates two claims. First, the modern world was not simply produced by "objective" factors, rooted in geographical discoveries and scientific inventions, to be traced to economic, technological or political factors, but is the outcome of social, cultural and spiritual processes. Among such factors, beyond the Protestant ethic (Max Weber), the rise of the absolutist state and its disciplinary network (Michel Foucault), or court society (Norbert Elias), a prime role is played by theatre. The modern reality is deeply theatricalized. Second, a special access for studying this theatricalized world is offered by novels. The best classical novels not simply can be interpreted as describing a world "like" the theatre, but they capture and present a world that has become thoroughly transformed into a global theatre. The theatre effectively transformed the world, and classical novels effectively analyze this "theatricalized" reality - much better than the main instruments supposedly destined to study reality, philosophy and sociology. Thus, instead of using the technique of sociology to analyze novels, the book will treat novels as a "royal road" to analyze a theatricalized reality, in order to find our way back to a genuine and meaningful life "--

I'm supposed to protect you from all this : a memoir
Spiegelman, Nadja
New York : Riverhead Books, 2016
"A memoir of mothers and daughters -- and mothers as daughters -- traced through four generations, from Paris to New York and back again. For a long time, Nadja Spiegelman believed her mother was a fairy. More than her famous father, Maus creator Art Spiegelman, and even more than most mothers, hers -- French-born New Yorker art director Françoise Mouly -- exerted a force over reality that was both dazzling and daunting. As Nadja's body changed and "began to whisper to the adults around me in a language I did not understand," their relationship grew tense. Unwittingly, they were replaying a drama from her mother's past, a drama Nadja sensed but had never been told. Then, after college, her mother suddenly opened up to her. Françoise recounted her turbulent adolescence caught between a volatile mother and a playboy father, one of the first plastic surgeons in France. The weight of the difficult stories she told her daughter shifted the balance between them. It had taken an ocean to allow Françoise the distance to become her own person. At about the same age, Nadja made the journey in reverse, moving to Paris determined to get to know the woman her mother had fled. Her grandmother's memories contradicted her mother's at nearly every turn, but beneath them lay a difficult history of her own. Nadja emerged with a deeper understanding of how each generation reshapes the past in order to forge ahead, their narratives both weapon and defense, eternally in conflict. Every reader will recognize herself and her family in this gorgeous and heartbreaking memoir, which helps us to see why sometimes those who love us best hurt us most"--

Governing with words : the political dialogue on race, public policy, and inequality in America
Gillion, Daniel Q., 1979-
New York, NY, USA : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Introduction -- 1. Discursive governance: toward a holistic approach to understanding a dialogue on race in government -- 2. Measuring the political dialogue on race -- Part I. Societal Reception to a Dialogue on Race: 3. The backlash: does America disapprove of racial discussions?; 4. The benefits: political rhetoric and health awareness in the minority community -- Part II. Political Institutions and a Dialogue on Race: 5. Racial frames and policy coalitions: how the dialogue on race shapes the creation of public policy; 6. The disconnect between political rhetoric and public policy -- Conclusion: A place for a racial dialogue in an aspiring post-racial society.

"Rather than considering political discussions and rhetoric as symbolic, inconsequential forms of politics, Governing with Words conceptualizes them as forms of government action that can shape institutions and societal norms. Daniel Q. Gillion refers to this theory as 'discursive governance'. Federal politicians' statements about racial and ethnic minority concerns aid the passage of minority public policies and improve individual lifestyle behaviors. Unfortunately, most of the American public continues to disapprove of politicians' rhetoric that highlights race. The book argues that addressing racial and ethnic inequality continues to be a tug-of-war between avoiding the backlash of the majority in this nation while advocating for minority interests. Even though this paradox looms over politicians' discussions of race, race-conscious political speech, viewed in its entirety, is the mechanism by which marginalized groups find a place in the democratic process. Such race-conscious discussions, the book argues, have ramifications both within and outside of government"--

In praise of literature
Bauman, Zygmunt, 1925-
Cambridge, UK ; Polity Press, 2016
"In this new book Zygmunt Bauman and Riccardo Mazzeo examine the contentious issue of the relation between literature (and the arts in general) and sociology (or, more generally, a branch of the humanities claiming scientific status). While many commentators see literature and sociology as radically different vocations, Bauman and Mazzeo argue that they are bound together by a common purpose and a shared subject matter. Despite the many differences in terms of their methods and their ways of presenting their findings, novels and sociological texts are not at cross-purposes. Indeed, it is precisely their differences that make them at once indispensable to each other and mutually complementary. The writers of novels and of sociological texts may explore their world from different perspectives, seeking and producing different types of 'data', but their products bear the unmistakable marks of their shared origin. They feed each other and depend on each other in terms of their agenda, their discoveries and the contents of their messages. In a world characterized by the continuous search for new sensations and the fetishism of consumption, they bring fundamental existential questions back to the public agenda. Literature and sociology reveal the truth of the human condition only when they stay in one another's company, remaining attentive to each other's findings and engaged in a continuous dialogue. For only together can they rise to the challenging task of untangling and laying bare the complex intertwining of biography and history as well as of individual and society that totality we are constantly shaping while being shaped by it"--

The hatred of poetry
Lerner, Ben, 1979-
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016
"No art has been denounced as often as poetry. It's even bemoaned by poets: "I, too, dislike it," wrote Marianne Moore. "Many more people agree they hate poetry," Ben Lerner writes, "than can agree what poetry is. I, too, dislike it and have largely organized my life around it and do not experience that as a contradiction because poetry and the hatred of poetry are inextricable in ways it is my purpose to explore."In this inventive and lucid essay, Lerner takes the hatred of poetry as the starting point of his defense of the art. He examines poetry's greatest haters (beginning with Plato's famous claim that an ideal city had no place for poets, who would only corrupt and mislead the young) and both its greatest and worst practitioners, providing inspired close readings of Keats, Dickinson, McGonagall, Whitman, and others. Throughout, he attempts to explain the noble failure at the heart of every truly great and truly horrible poem: the impulse to launch the experience of an individual into a timeless communal existence. In The Hatred of Poetry, Lerner has crafted an entertaining, personal, and entirely original examination of a vocation no less essential for being impossible"--

"In a small corner of what was once known as North America, in the not-too-distant future, Neo-Toronto emerges as a prosperous island enclave after decades of war and unrest. In this world, knowledge is downloaded, learning is obsolete, cybernetic communication is the norm and even time travel is within reach. Citizens wholeheartedly embrace a doctrine of immortality, hoping to achieve Singularity--a state of autonomy so complete that human contact is rendered unnecessary."--From publisher's website.

Dark night : a true Batman story
Dini, Paul
Burbank, CA : DC Comics, [2016]
In the 1990s, legendary writer Paul Dini had a flourishing career writing the hugely popular Batman: The Animated Series and Tiny Toon Adventures. Walking home one evening, he was jumped and viciously beaten within an inch of his life. His recovery process was arduous, hampered by the imagined antics of the villains he was writing for television including the Joker, Harley Quinn and the Penguin. But despite how bleak his circumstances were, or perhaps because of it, Dini also always imagined the Batman at his side, chivvying him along during his darkest moments. This is a Batman story like no other—the harrowing and eloquent autobiographical tale of writer Paul Dini’s courageous struggle to overcome a desperate situation.

Designed words for a designed world : the international concrete poetry movement, 1955-1971
Hilder, Jamie, 1977-
Montreal ; McGill-Queen's University Press, [2016]
"Sometimes image, sometimes word, and often both or neither, concrete poetry emerged out of an era of ground-breaking social and technological developments. Television, nuclear weapons, radio transistors, space travel, and colour photography all combined to drastically alter the representation of the world in the period following the Second World War. While never fully embraced as poetry or as visual art, and often criticized for an aesthetic that veers too closely to commercial design, concrete poetry is an ambitious critical project that strives to break free of national languages and narrow literary traditions. Crossing national and disciplinary borders to highlight connections between poems and a variety of other cultural material, in this book--the first major study of concrete poetry's international character--Jamie Hilder asks fundamental questions about the ways in which the work has been critically received over the past fifty years. Designed Words for a Designed World positions the work of the movement within a new global context, pointing out how its international character predates and initiates some trends now associated with globalization. Hilder places concrete poetry alongside such transformative projects as the modernist city of Brasília, the development of computers, and the rise of conceptual art in order to accentuate its significance as one of the major poetic movements of the twentieth century."--

"For anyone who has ever been inspired by a TED talk, this is an insider's guide to creating talks that are unforgettable. Since taking over TED in the early 2000s, Chris Anderson has shown how carefully crafted short talks can be the key to unlocking empathy, stirring excitement, spreading knowledge, and promoting a shared dream. Done right, a talk can electrify a room and transform an audience's worldview. Done right, a talk is more powerful than anything in written form. This book explains how the miracle of powerful public speaking is achieved, and equips you to give it your best shot. There is no set formula; no two talks should be the same. The goal is for you to give the talk that only you can give. But don't be intimidated. You may find it more natural than you think. Chris Anderson has worked behind the scenes with all the TED speakers who have inspired us the most, and here he shares insights from such favorites as Sir Ken Robinson, Amy Cuddy, Bill Gates, Elizabeth Gilbert, Salman Khan, Dan Gilbert, Mary Roach, Matt Ridley, and dozens more-- everything from how to craft your talk's content to how you can be most effective on stage. This is the 21st-century's new manual for truly effective communication and it is a must-read for anyone who is ready to create impact with their ideas"

Sicily : a literary guide for travellers
Edwards, Andrew, author
London : I.B. Tauris, 2014
Palermo and surroundings: Peeling the onion -- The Tyrrhenian coast: castles in the air -- Messina, taormina and the North-est Coast: a playground for the literati -- Catania and Mount Etna: under the shadow of the volcano -- Syracuse and the south-east: the sybaritic south -- Agrigento and the South Coast: sulphur spirits and the Greek temples -- Enna and the interior: Siciliy's bread basket -- Trapani and the west: salt, wine and the misty goddess.

Rising up from the heart of the Mediterranean, Sicily has a rich and ancient history spanning over 2,000 years. A bounty prized by invaders from the Greeks, Romans, and Vandals to the Byzantines, Arabs, and Normans, Sicily's violently beautiful landscapes are haunted by a vibrant mix of cultures, and her soil has always been fertile ground for the literary and artistic imagination. This compelling guide uncovers the island's multifaceted personality through the experiences of those literary figures who have managed to get under her skin, including Pindar, Cicero, Aeschylus, Shakespeare, Cervantes, DH Lawrence, Coleridge, Oscar Wilde, Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Ezra Pound, and Lawrence Durrell; as well as local writers who have defined the modern Italian novel, including Giuseppe di Lampedusa and Leonardo Sciascia. Through their words and lives we witness the beauty, pain, and power of the Sicilian cultural landscape and discover how the potent mix of influences on the island's society have been preserved forever in literature.

Our story opens in Bay City in 1931 in the midst of the Great Depression. Big Sam sees himself as a righteous, truth-seeking patriot, defending the American way, as his Irish immigrant father would have wanted, against a rising tide of left-wing unionism, strikes, and disruption that plague his home town. At the same time he makes monthly, secret overnight trips on behalf of Cousin Joseph, a mysterious man on the phone he has never laid eyes on, to pay off Hollywood producers to ensure that they will film only upbeat films that idealize a mythic America: no warts, no injustice uncorrected, only happy endings.

Reinventing the Latino television viewer : language, ideology, and practice
Chávez, Christopher, author
Lanham, Maryland : Lexington Books, [2015]
Hispanic television and the changing field of Latino cultural production -- Audience reconstruction and the rise of 'new Latino' -- Mixing, switching, and policing linguistic boundaries -- English-language television and linguistic erasures -- The new Hispanic television landscape and the false promise of democracy.

Examines how the relationship between language, power, and industry practice is reshaping the very concept of Hispanic television. It argues that as established mainstream networks enter the Hispanic television space, they are redefining the Latino audience in ways that more closely resemble the mainstream population, leading to auspicious forms of erasure that challenge the legitimacy of Spanish. This book presents the integration of English into the Hispanic television space not as an entirely new phenomenon, but rather as an extension of two ongoing practices within the television industry- the exploitation of consumer markets and the suppression of Latino forms of speech. -- Publisher description

Global news : reporting conflicts and cosmopolitanism
Robertson, Alexa, author
New York : Peter Lang, [2015]
The global village and the ivory tower -- Colliding worlds -- A world in crisis: atlas reports -- Brave new world -- Another world: Europe as other -- A world of difference.

Global News explores how media representation is conceived and enacted in a world of diversity and transborder flows. Among the 'new media' crowding the global mediascape are influential television outlets that promise viewers alternative vantage points to those of established Western broadcasters. The different worlds depicted by Al Jazeera English and Russia Today are compared with those of CNN International and BBC World. At a time when media organizations are slashing their budgets for international reporting, these channels represent a spectrum of financing solutions and relations to political power, being variously privately-, publicly-, or state-owned, backed by corporations, democratic states, authoritarian regimes, and ruling dynasties. Despite their differences, however, they have much in common. Their journalists espouse the universal values of professionalism and objectivity and speak to their global audiences in English. This book explores the different theoretical worlds of global media studies, takes a rare look at content, has a comparative perspective, and moves beyond the conflict frame that has dominated much of the literature in the field.

Julie Christie
Bell, Melanie, author
London : Palgrave on behalf of the British Film Institute, 2016
Introduction -- Persona: becoming 'Julie Christie' -- Performance: the poetic and the ironic -- Politics: feminist praxis in cultural production -- Coda: Afterglow and Away from Her.

"Julie Christie is one of cinema's most enigmatic stars. Her early Oscar-winning success as the free-spirited heroine in Darling (1965) was followed by roles in a number of landmark films from cinema's leading auteurs. Although she increasingly shunned the media spotlight in favour of political causes, Christie has remained a star revered by fellow actors and feted by critics and audiences alike. In this original and revealing study, film scholar Melanie Bell analyses Christie's work in key films, from Doctor Zhivago (1965), to Don't Look Now (1973), The Gold Diggers (1983) and Away from Her (2006), demonstrating how the actress developed a poetic and ironic performance style that enabled her to shift convincingly between mainstream and art-house cinema. Drawing on a range of archival materials, Bell reveals for the first time the extent of Christie's creative involvement in the production process and her support for feminist film-makers and feminist politics. Restoring Christie to her rightful place in film history, this absorbing text addresses important questions about how women's creative contributions to cinema are recognised, rewarded and archived."--Page [4] of cover.

The Psycho records
Rickels, Laurence A., author
New York : Wallflower Press, 2016
"The Psycho Records follows the influence of the primal shower scene within subsequent slasher and splatter films. American soldiers returning from World War II were called "psychos" if they exhibited mental illness. Robert Bloch and Alfred Hitchcock turned the term into a catch-all phrase for a range of psychotic and psychopathic symptoms or dispositions. They transferred a war disorder to the American heartland. Drawing on his experience with German film, Hitchcock packed inside his shower stall the essence of schauer, the German cognate meaning "horror." Later serial horror film production has post-traumatically flashed back to Hitchcock's shower scene. In the end, though, this book argues the effect is therapeutically finite. This extensive case study summons the genealogical readings of philosopher and psychoanalyst Laurence Rickels. The book opens not with another reading of Hitchcock's 1960 film but with an evaluation of various updates to vampirism over the years. It concludes with a close look at the rise of demonic and infernal tendencies in horror movies since the 1990s and the problem of the psycho as our most uncanny double in close quarters."--Publisher's website.

"This book takes an important next step for television studies: it acknowledges the growing diversity of the international experience of television today in order to address the question of 'what is television now?' The book addresses this question in two interrelated ways: - by situating the consumption of television within the full range of structures, patterns and practices of everyday life; - and by retrieving the importance of location as fundamental to these structures, patterns and practices - and, consequently, to the experience of television. This approach, involving collaboration between authors from cultural studies and cultural anthropology, offers new ways of studying the consumption of television - in particular, the use of the notion of 'zones of consumption' as a new means of locating television within the full range of its spatial, temporal, cultural, political and industrial contexts. Although the study draws its examples from a wide range of locations (the US, the UK, Australia, Malaysia, Cuba, and the Chinese language markets in Asia -- Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Taiwan), its argument is strongly informed by the evidence and the insights which emerged from ethnographic research in Mexico. This research site serves a strategic purpose: by working on a location with a highly developed and commercially successful transnational television industry, but which is not among the locations usually considered by television studies written in English, the limitations to some of the assumptions underlying the orthodoxies in Anglo-American television studies are highlighted. This book is a valuable and original contribution to television, media and cultural studies, and anthropology, presenting approaches and evidence that are new to the field"--

Éric Rohmer : a biography
Baecque, Antoine de, author
New York : Columbia University Press, [2016]
The mysteries of "le grand momo" -- Maurice Schérer's youth: 1920-1945 -- From Schérer to Rohmer: 1945-1957 -- Under the sign of Leo: 1959-1962 -- Under the sign of cahiers: 1957-1963 -- The laboratory period: 1963-1970 -- Four moral tales: 1966-1972 -- Of Germany and the pleasure of teaching: 1969-1994 -- In pursuit of Perceval: 1978-1979 -- Six comedies and proverbs: 1980-1986 -- The Rohmer of the cities and the Rohmer of the countryside: 1973-1995 -- In the rhythm of the seasons: 1989-1998 -- Filming history: 1998-2004 -- A winter's tale: 2006-2007 -- In pain: 2001-2010.

"The director of twenty-five films, including My Night at Maud's (1969), which was nominated for a Best Picture Academy Award, and the editor in chief of Cahiers du cinéma from 1957 to 1963, Éric Rohmer set the terms by which people watched, made, and thought about cinema for decades. Such brilliance does not develop in a vacuum, and Rohmer cultivated a fascinating network of friends, colleagues, and industry contacts that kept his outlook sharp and propelled his work forward. Despite his privacy, he cared deeply about politics, religion, culture, and fostering a public appreciation of the medium he loved. This exhaustive biography uses personal archives and interviews to enrich our knowledge of Rohmer's public achievements and lesser known interests and relations. The filmmaker kept in close communication with his contemporaries and competitors: François Truffaut, Jean-Luc Godard, Claude Chabrol, and Jacques Rivette. He held a paradoxical fascination with royalist politics, the fate of the environment, Catholicism, classical music, and the French nightclub scene, and his films were regularly featured at New York and Los Angeles film festivals. Despite an austere approach to life, Rohmer had a voracious appetite for art, culture, and intellectual debate captured vividly in this definitive volume." --

Contemporary Russian cinema : symbols of a new era
Strukov, Vlad, 1973- author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
Introduction. Conceptualising the period ; Overview of the contemporary Russian film ; Critical review of scholarship on contemporary Russian film ; Contextualising the present study ; Theorising contemporary Russian cinema -- 1. Abstracted subjectivity and knowledge-worlds : Aleksandr Sokurov's Taurus (2001) -- 2. The lacking sense of cinema : Aleksandr Proshkin's The miracle (2009) -- 3. Gatekeepers of (non-)knowledge : Aleksei Balabanov's Morphine (2008) -- 4. Symbolic folds and flattened discourse : Andrei Zviagintsev's Elena (2010) -- 5. Non-knowledge and the symbolic mode : Nikolai Khomeriki's A tale about darkness (2009) -- 6. The world and the event : Kirill Serebrennikov's St. George's Day (2008) -- 7. A plea for the dead (self) : Renata Litvinova's Goddess : how I fell in love (2004) -- 8. Body in crisis and posthumous subjectivity : Igor' Voloshin's Nirvana (2008) -- 9. The difficulty of being dead : Aleksandr Veledinskii's Alive (2006) -- 10. Intentionality and modelled subjectivities : Aleksei Fedorchenko's Silent souls (2010) -- 11. Abandoned being : Mikhail Kalatozishvili's The wild field (2008) -- 12. Amplifications of subjectivity : Aleksandr Zel'dovich's The target (2010) -- Conclusions.

One of the first books to explore Russian cinema in the new millennium, this volume captures the emergence of a new cinematic sensibility and interprets it through the framework of the symbolic mode. Analysing films by established directors such as Sokurov, Zviagintsev and Zel'dovich, as well as lesser-known filmmakers like Balabanov, Fedorchenko and Kalatozishvili, Contemporary Russian Cinema: Symbols of a New Era explores the particular style of film presentation that has emerged in Russia since 2000, characterised by its use of highly abstract concepts and visual language. Whether directed towards a mystical world, or even towards an afterlife, the symbolic mode defines the emergence of a specific mindscape which has escaped previous representational forms and is intrinsically linked to Russia’s dramatic political and economic development since the turn of the 21st century.

The view from the train : cities and other landscapes
Keiller, Patrick
London ; Verso, 2013
Introduction: The view from the train -- The poetic experience of townscape and landscape -- Atmosphere, palimpsest and other interpretations of landscape -- Port statistics -- The dilapidated dwelling -- Popular science -- Architectural cinematography -- London in the early 1990s -- London -- Rochester -- London -- The Robinson Institute -- The city of the future -- Film as spatial critique -- Phantom rides: the railway and early film -- Imaging.

""Robinson believed that, if he looked at it hard enough, he could cause the surface of the city to reveal to him the molecular basis of historical events, and in this way he hoped to see into the future." In his sequence of films, Patrick Keiller retraces the hidden story of the places where we live, the cities and landscapes of our everyday lives. Now, in this brilliant collection of essays, he offers a new perspective on how Britain works and sees itself. He discusses the background to his work and its development - from surrealism to post-2008 economic catastrophe - and expands on what the films reveal. Referencing writers including Benjamin and Lefebvre, the essays follow his career since the late 1970s, exploring themes including the surrealist perception of the city; the relationship of architecture and film; how cities change over time, and how films represent this; as well as accounts of cross-country journeys involving historical figures, unexpected ideas and an urgent portrait of post-crash Britain"--

Medicine shows : indigenous performance culture
Nolan, Yvette, author
Toronto : Playwrights Canada Press, 2015
"Contemporary Indigenous theatre in Canada is just over thirty years old, if one begins counting from the premier of Linda Griffiths and Maria Campbell's Jessica in Saskatoon and the establishment of Native Earth Performing Arts in Toronto. Since those contemporaneous events in 1982, the Canadian community of Indigenous theatre artists has grown and inspired one another. Medicine Shows: Indigenous Performance Culture traces the work of a host of these artists over the past three decades, illuminating the connections, the artistic geneaology, and the development of a contemporary Indigenous theatre practice. Neither a hsitory nor a chronicle, Medicine Shows examines how theatre has been used to make medicine, reconnecting individuals and communities, giving voice to the silenced and disappeared, staging ceremony, and honouring the ancestors.

The real James Dean : intimate memories from those who knew him best
edited by Peter L. Winkler ; foreword by George Stevens
Chicago, Illinois : Chicago Review Press, 2016
"In the decades following his death, many of those who knew James Dean best--actors, directors, friends, lovers (both men and women), photographers, and Hollywood columnists--shared stories of their first-person experiences with him in interviews and in the articles and autobiographies they wrote. Their recollections of Dean became lost in fragile back issues of movie magazines and newspapers and in out-of-print books that are extremely hard to find. Until now. The Real James Dean is the first book of its kind: a rich collection spanning six decades of writing in which many of the people whose lives were touched by Dean recall their indelible experiences with him in their own words. Here are the memorable personal accounts of Dean from his high school and college drama teachers; the girl he almost married; costars like Rock Hudson, Natalie Wood, Jim Backus, and Raymond Massey; directors Elia Kazan, Nicholas Ray, and George Stevens; entertainer Eartha Kitt; gossip queen Hedda Hopper; the passenger who accompanied Dean on his final, fatal road trip; and a host of his other friends and colleagues."--

volume editors, Jane Plastow & Yvette Hutchison ; guest editor, Christine Matzke ; reviews editor, Martin Banham

Richards -- The work of Dalia Basiouny: an artist's account / Dalia Basiouny -- Performatives as activism: addressing gender-based violence & rape culture in South Africa & beyond / Sara Matchett & Nicola Cloete -- Exploring poetic voice in the Uganda women's intergenerational theatre project / Susan Kiguli & Jane Plastow -- 'After images': impressions of the 'after' by South African performer-choreographer Mamela Nyamza / Alude Mahali -- Jalila Baccar of Tunisia: a portrait of an artist / Marvin Carlson -- In conversation: interrogating & shifting societal perceptions of women in Botswana through theatre / Lebogang Disele -- Binti Leo: women in the arts in Tanzania / Vicensia Shule -- Odile Gakire Katese: making art & reinventing culture with women / interview with Ariane Zaytzeff -- Contemporary Ethiopian actresses / Jane Plastow & Mahlet Solomon -- Introducing The sentence by Sefi Atta / Christine Matzke -- Playscript: The sentence / Sefi Atta -- Book reviews.

Drawing on expertise from across the African continent this collection reflects the realities for women working and making theatre: how Egyptian director Dalia Basiouny has documented the "Tahrir Stories" of the Egyptian Revolution; how in Uganda women have used various theatrical devices, such as oral poetry, to seek common ground in a rural-urban inter-generational theatre project; and the use of physical theatre to examine disavowed memory in South Africa. The contributors also look at how practitioners are re-thinking performance space and modes of performance for gendered advocacy in Botswanan theatre, and how women are addressing gender-based violence and rape culture, comparing performance and street-based activism in South Africa and India. A particular strength of the volume is its interviews: with Jallila Baccar of Tunisia, by Marvin Carlson; six Ethiopian actresses are interviewed and introduced by Jane Plastow and Mahlet Solomon; and Ariane Zaytzeff explores "Making art to reinvent culture" with Odile Gakire Katese of Rwanda. The new play to be published is 'The Sentence' by Nigerian writer Sefi Atta, introduced and contextualised by Christine Matzke.0.

Holocaust impiety in Jewish American literature : memory, identity (post- ) postmodernism
Krijnen, Joost, author
Leiden [The Netherlands] ; Brill/Rodopi, [2016]
"The Holocaust is often said to be unrepresentable. Yet since the 1990s, a new generation of Jewish American writers have been returning to this history again and again, insisting on engaging with it in highly playful, comic, and "impious" ways. Focusing on the fiction of Michael Chabon, Jonathan Safran Foer, Nicole Krauss, and Nathan Englander, this book suggests that this literature cannot simply be dismissed as insensitive or improper. It argues that these Jewish American authors engage with the Holocaust in ways that renew and ensure its significance for contemporary generations. These ways, moreover, are intricately connected to efforts of finding new means of expressing Jewish American identity, and of moving beyond the increasingly apparent problems of postmodernism"--

"Zombies, werewolves and chainsaw-wielding maniacs are tried-and-true antagonists of horror films. But none can match the visceral dread evoked by a kid with an innocent face and a diabolical stare. A good horror film is a scary ride--a "devil child" movie is a guilt trip"--

Play all : a bingewatcher's notebook
James, Clive, 1939- author
New Haven : Yale University Press, [2016]
Television and TV viewing are not what they once were--and that's a good thing, according to award-winning author and critic Clive James. Since serving as television columnist for the London Observer from 1972 to 1982, James has witnessed a radical change in content, format, and programming, and in the very manner in which TV is watched. Here he examines this unique cultural revolution, providing a brilliant, eminently entertaining analysis of many of the medium's most notable twenty-first-century accomplishments and their not always subtle impact on modern society--including such acclaimed serial dramas as Breaking Bad, The West Wing, Mad Men, and The Sopranos, as well as the comedy 30 Rock. With intelligence and wit, James explores a television landscape expanded by cable and broadband and profoundly altered by the advent of Netflix, Amazon, and other "cord-cutting" platforms that have helped to usher in a golden age of unabashed binge-watching.
