    Abstract: In Fabricating the Absolute Fake, Jaap Kooijman explores the ways people around the world interpret and attempt to reproduce "Americanness." Tracing the ways America has been appropriated by pop culture produced outside the United States, he examines such icons as the Elvis-inspired performer Lee Towers and the Moroccan-Dutch rapper Ali B. This revised edition features a new chapter on Barack Obama's global celebrity and an afterword on teaching American pop culture. Like the first edition, it will prove an illuminating resource for scholars of American culture and popular cultures the world over

    Abstract: The present boom in popular history is not unprecedented. The contributions to this volume investigate peaks of historical interest which favour popular approaches from around 1800 to the present. They analyse the media, genres and institutions through which historical knowledge has been disseminated - from artefacts to the archive, from poetry to photography, from music to murals, and from periodicals to popular TV series. They ask how major traditions in the popular imagery of the past have evolved and changed over time. Cultural contexts covered in the book include Western and Southern Europe, the United States and West Africa. Contributors come from a range of disciplines, including history, literary and cultural studies, musicology as well as social and cultural anthropology

    Abstract: Popular representations of history are taking on new forms and reaching wider audiences. The search for usable pasts is branching out into active appropriations of history such as historical theme parks, housing developments, and live-action role play. Drawing on themed environments across the continents, the articles in this volume focus on how these appropriations bypass, are different from, or even contradict traditional as well as scientific modes of disseminating historical knowledge. Bringing together theorists and practitioners, they provide the basis for an interdisciplinary as well as a transcultural theory of how pasts are staged in various social contexts

    Abstract: A classic of British cultural studies, Profane Culture takes the reader into the worlds of two important 1960s youth cultures-the motor-bike boys and the hippies. The motor-bike boys were working-class motorcyclists who listened to the early rock 'n' roll of the late 1950s. In contrast, the hippies were middle-class drug users with long hair and a love of progressive music. Both groups were involved in an unequal but heroic fight to produce meaning and their own cultural forms in the face of a larger society dominated by the capitalist media and commercialism. They were pioneers of cultural experimentation, the self-construction of identity, and the curating of the self, which, in different ways, have become so widespread today.In Profane Culture, Paul Willis develops an important and still very contemporary theory and methodology for understanding the constructions of lived and popular culture. His new preface discusses the ties between the cultural moment explored in the book and today

    Abstract: Die Telenovela ist im Zuge der Globalisierung in den verschiedensten Ländern beheimatet. Doch um was für ein TV-Genre handelt es sich? Jenseits von Kulturkritik und Rechtfertigungsrhetorik untersucht Joachim Michael die Telenovela als Ergebnis des medialen Umbruchs der lateinamerikanischen Kulturen. Er zeigt, dass die Telenovela mehr als nur ein Format ist - sie markiert eine spezifische Kultur, deren eigentümliche Faszination sich aus dem televisionären Blickregime des Genres speist. Zudem ist sie in der lateinamerikanischen Moderne und ihrem Begehren nach nationaler Emanzipation verwurzelt. Hierin finden sich die Voraussetzungen für die allabendliche 'Tele-ImagiNation' der Gattung

    Abstract: Über Punk wurde in den letzten 35 Jahren eine Menge geschrieben. Das inhaltliche Spektrum dieses Diskurses reicht von bürgerlich-kulturpessimistischer Bestürzung über zahlreiche Kondolenzbekundungen bis hin zu harschen Sellout-Kritiken. Vor diesem Hintergrund versammelt der Band eine Reihe von 'Beobachtungen zweiter Ordnung', die neben der substanzialistischen Beschreibung von Punk in Deutschland auch eine Kontextualisierung des Phänomens Punk in der bundesdeutschen Gesellschaft vornehmen

    Abstract: »Transformation« bezeichnet einen gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Wandlungstyp von unterschiedlicher Stärke und Radikalität - ein Wandel, der den Betroffenen ein Umdenken bisheriger Orientierungen abnötigt. Das kulturelle Programm, das diese Orientierung formuliert und als mentales Muster in uns abgelegt ist, ist zugleich beharrlich und formbar, stets gefordert, sich neu aufzustellen.Erstmalig liegt mit diesem Buch eine kulturwissenschaftliche Transformationsforschung vor - nah an den Praktiken und Kompetenzen der Akteure, an den zirkulierenden Energien der kulturellen Felder und im Kontext verzweigter Diskurse.Thomas Düllo zeigt zudem, wie sich eine anwendungsorientierte und den Cultural Studies verpflichtete Kulturwissenschaft mittels des performativen Transformationsprinzips aufstellen kann

    Abstract: The omnipresence and popularity of American consumer products in Japan have triggered an avalanche of writing shedding light on different aspects of this cross-cultural relationship. Cultural interactions are often accompanied by the term cultural imperialism, a concept that on close scrutiny turns out to be a hasty oversimplification given the contemporary cultural interaction between the U.S. and Japan. »Embracing Differences« shows that this assumption of a one-sided transfer is no longer valid. Closely investigating Disney theme parks, sushi, as well as movies, Iris-Aya Laemmerhirt reveals a dialogical exchange between these two nations that has changed the image of Japan in the United States

    Abstract: Luxembourg - international financial center, European administrative center, destination country for immigration? This empirical study provides insights about a society that has hitherto largely eluded scientific investigation and observes the processes of identity construction in globalised conditions.The interdisciplinary team of authors exposes the processes of subjective appropriations and institutional attributions at work in the fields of languages, spaces, perceptions of self and others as well as everyday cultures, and identifies for the first time socio-cultural milieus in the Grand Duchy. The findings of the three-year research project uncover the ambivalences and dynamics of a multicultural and multilingual society

    Abstract: The study combines theories of myth, popular culture, structuralism and poststructuralism to explain the enormous appeal of »Star Wars« and »Harry Potter«. Although much research already exists on both stories individually, this book is the first to explicitly bring them together in order to explore their set-up and the ways in which their structures help produce ideologies on gender and ethnicity. Hereby, the comparison yields central insights into the workings of modern myth and uncovers structure as integral to the success of the popular genre. It addresses academic audiences and all those wishing to approach the tales from a fresh angle
