    Description: The initial step in internationalizing popular culture studies is the rejection of the canonical approach. Analyzing a state's popular culture affords insights into the driving forces behind everyday life and increases popular awareness more effectively than any legislation. In an era of globalization, popular culture is the link that binds people together. Academics should realise this and put more emphasis on the study of popular culture. Aspects of popular culture such as the democratization of art, tourism, women's fashion and bumper stickers are discussed.

    Description: Examines the portrayals of children in advertising from 1905 to 1990 to investigate the extent to which the relationship between children and adults has changed. Suggests that a real shift occurred but that it occurred in different linear and cyclical patterns which must be both recognized and examined in relationship to each other and be understood in social and cultural contexts.

    Description: A discourse analysis of professional & popular literature describing male violence against women surveyed 165 journal abstracts & articles & 11 full-length articles published in popular magazines, 1994-1996. The phrase "male violence" was used only 8 times in these writings; male gender was infrequently mentioned, whereas female gender was often present in the identification of victims of male violence. Consequences of the absence of men as perpetrators & visibility of women in the literature on male violence against women are discussed, & change in these discursive practices is called for. 15 References.

    Description: Argues that the literature on breast-feeding does not focus on nutritive values, but on the relative worth of associated social, domestic, & technical arrangements. Examination of recent & classic medical, scholarly, & popular books on breast-feeding indicates that they begin with the assumption of maternally dedicated child care as the social context in which infant-feeding decisions are made, automatically skewing even the most critical works. A comparative analysis shows that research studies & popular literature tend to set breast-feeding apart from related practices, & assumptions about gendered divisions of labor dominate, even in medical research on epidemiology & risk. Much of the medical literature relies on controversial sociological & psychological theorems, while public health & popular literature is based on untested hypotheses from medical sources. It is concluded that most work on the relative merits of breast/formula feeding are at best misleading, & shaped by one vision of a middle-class, gender-structured nuclear family. Implications, especially for women who work outside the home, are discussed. 84 References. J. Lindroth

    Description: This article explores the origins and ideology of classical crowd psychology, a body of theory reflected in contemporary popularised understandings such as of the 2011 English ‘riots’. This article argues that during the nineteenth century, the crowd came to symbolise a fear of ‘mass society’ and that ‘classical’ crowd psychology was a product of these fears. Classical crowd psychology pathologised, reified and decontextualised the crowd, offering the ruling elites a perceived opportunity to control it. We contend that classical theory misrepresents crowd psychology and survives in contemporary understanding because it is ideological. We conclude by discussing how classical theory has been supplanted in academic contexts by an identity-based crowd psychology that restores the meaning to crowd action, replaces it in its social context and in so doing transforms theoretical understanding of ‘riots’ and the nature of the self.

    In: Japanese Journal of Political Science, June 2012, Vol.13(2), pp.201-221
    Description: This paper reviews the studies of Japanese society and culture undertaken by Hong Kong-based sociologists and scholars in related disciplines. It presents information on research projects funded by the Research Grants Council, Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI), and Arts and Humanities Citation Index (A&HCI) journal articles, authored and edited books, book chapters, non-SSCI and non-A&HCI journal articles, as well as master and doctoral theses written by scholars and graduate students associated with Hong Kong's major universities. It is found that the main topics of research are Japan's capitalist development and corporate growth, meanings and social ramifications of traditional and popular culture, education, gender, and marriage, as well as aspects of work and employment, whereas the major research methods include document analysis, ethnography, and in-depth interviews. The limited amount of research and the preoccupation with economic development and popular culture reflect in part Hong Kong's unique political conditions and the government's indifference to the pursuit of social and political policy analysis. In recent years, the growth of academic exchanges between scholars in Hong Kong, Japan, and other East Asian regions and the heightened emphasis by university administrators on academic research will hopefully bring about advancements in such academic endeavors.

    Description: During the last 30 years, "consumption" has become a major topic in the study of contemporary culture within anthropology, psychology, & sociology. For many authors, it has become central to understanding the nature of material culture in the modern world, but this paper argues that the concept is, in British writing at least, too concerned with its economic origins in the selling & buying of consumer goods or commodities. It is argued that to understand material culture as determined through the monetary exchange for things -- the cash nexus -- leads to an inadequate sociological understanding of the social relations with objects. The work of Jean Baudrillard is used both to critique the concept of consumption as it leads to a focus on advertising, choice, money & shopping & to point to a more sociologically adequate approach to material culture that explores objects in a system of models & series, "atmosphere," functionality, biography, interaction, & mediation. 61 References.

    Description: Cars had become both the primary mass produced product and the primary object of mass consumption. [...]the success of Ford's middlebrow entry, Mercury, attended the "arrival of an American middle class that responded to its aspirational message,"8 while the Cadillac appealed to higher class which was encouraged to make its already-achieved success conspicuous. [...]he demonstrates the critical interconnection between moral and political economy, as it was mediated by automobile culture: "The value of life is persistently specified along racial lines and car ownership remains an unspoken prerequisite for the exercise of citizenship. Because Detroit was effectively a one-industry city, its employees were a prey to economic downturns. [...]its banking crisis (as the Guardian Group bank, set up by the auto companies, participated in the nationwide banking failure) contributed to the national economic crisis as a whole.25 What are "hard times?" In its ordinary usage, the expression refers to...

    Description: The paper starts from the theoretical perspective opened by the "culturalist' approach, that introduced the so-called "break' from the end of '50s in cultural studies, & took into consideration the meaning of the concept 'popular culture' not as opposite to that of "elite culture' or "high culture,' but as a term which refers to the cultural products, practices & artifacts produced by & for people, also with a special focus on their complex relationship with the political & economic agenda of the period. The research focuses on the popular culture in the communist Romanian society between 1947-1989. The general objective of this larger study was to outline the main aspects of the popular culture in the communist Romania & to identify the popular culture practices & artifacts & their roots. In this paper there will be presented the results regarding the Western & Soviet influences on Romanian popular culture. I analyzed both the practices of popular culture (what is included in the term of lived culture) & the products & artifacts (as a part of the larger concept of lifestyle). Besides this, because these issues have been little explored from this perspective in Romania, I also paid close attention to unanticipated themes that could arise from the empirical research. The method used for accomplishing the objectives of the research was the social biography (in the form of life histories). More exactly, I used the technique of "multiple autobiographies,' understanding the term in its classic sense, as subjects' narrations about themselves, about their own lives. This method allowed me to obtain "subjective' data about the "lived culture,' & also about the existence, evolution, appropriation, negotiation, resistance or rejection of the popular culture products, which in the end could lead us to outline the situation of popular culture elements in Romania in the communist epoch. Adapted from the source document.
