Edition: First Edition

Seller ID: 028107

ISBN: 076193474X

Condition: New


The theory, methods and politics of cultural studies are examined in this book which is concerned with the ways in which public culture reflects the relations between identities, race, gender and class. Adapting a range of theories and approaches, the author demonstrates how a cultural form effectively disseminates meanings - a political act - by marginalizing certain identities, norms, modes of thinking and knowledges while valuing others. The book covers topics as diverse as comic book superheroes, patriotic songs in Hindi films, the projection of 'authenticity' in tourist brochures and the... View more info

Seller ID: 028108

This interdisciplinary cultural study of the new technologies discusses cyberculture as it mediates, and in turn is mediated by, the contexts of globalisation, politics, medical science and war, and the realms of everyday life such as learning, identity, consumption, and leisure. It pays attention to common and visible expressions of technoculture - including music videos, niche marketing, literature, and cosmetic surgery - in order to highlight its distinguishing features. Using a range of insights from theorists such as Donna Haraway, Stuart Hall, Manuel Castells, Paul Virilio and Katherine ... View more info

Citizenship and Identity in the Age of Surveillance

By: Pramod K. Nayar

Price: $12.05

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Cambridge University Press: 2015

Seller ID: 101486

ISBN: 1107080584

Condition: New


This book is a study of cultures of surveillance from CCTV to genetic data-gathering and the new forms of subjectivity and citizenship that are forged in such cultures. It studies data bodies and space as domains within which this subjectivity of the vulnerable individual emerges. The book also proposes that we can see a shift within cultures of surveillance where from active participation in the process of surveilling a witness-citizen emerges. The book therefore seeks to alter surveillance as a mere top-down system instead arguing that surveillance is also a mode of engagement with the world... View more info

States of Sentiment: Exploring the Cultures of Emotion

By: Pramod K. Nayar (Author) & Shiv Visvanathan (Frwd)

Price: $17.00

Publisher: New Delhi, India, Orient BlackSwan: 2011

Seller ID: 101866

ISBN: 8125041990

Condition: New


This book proposes that our responses to various situations, events and representations are not entirely private, individual and internal. They have a crucial social dimension. Emotions are a result of the internalisation of cultural codes and discourses that inform, and even determine the appropriateness or inappropriateness of emotional responses. We see a terrorist as a threat, a cyclone as worrying, a rags-to-riches story as a feel-good moment. We mourn the sudden death of Michael Jackson, we rejoice in the victory of a triumphant Tendulkar and we react with horror and shock to 9/11. All o... View more info
