Abstract

Russia, one of the most ethno-culturally diverse countries in the world, provides a rich case study on how globalization and associated international trends are&#xD;disrupting and causing the radical rethinking of approaches to inter-ethnic cohesion. The book highlights the importance of television broadcasting in shaping national discourse and the place of ethno-cultural diversity within it. It argues that television’s role here has been reinforced, rather than diminished, by the rise of new media technologies.&#xD;Through an analysis of a wide range of news and other television programmes, the book shows how the covert meanings of discourse on a particular issue can diverge from the overt significance attributed to it, just as the impact of that discourse may not conform with the original aims of the broadcasters. The book discusses the tension between the imperative to maintain security through centralized government and overall national cohesion that Russia shares with other European states, and the need to remain sensitive to, and to accommodate, the needs and perspectives of ethnic minorities and labour migrants. It compares the increasingly isolationist popular ethno-nationalism in Russia, which harks back to ‘old-fashioned’ values, with the similar rise of the Tea Party in the United States and the UK Independence Party in Britain.&#xD;Throughout, this extremely rich, well-argued book complicates and challenges received wisdom on Russia’s recent descent into authoritarianism. It points to a regime struggling to negotiate the dilemmas it faces, given its Soviet legacy of ethnic particularism, weak civil society, large native Muslim population and overbearing, yet far from entirely effective, state control of the media.

Abstract

The Queer Fantasies of the American Family Sitcom explores how the fantasies of genre, marketing, and children can never fully cloak the queerness lurking within the plucky families designed for American viewers’ comic delight. Queer readings of family sitcoms demolish myths of yesteryear, demonstrating the illusion of American sexual innocence in television’s early programs and its lasting consequences in the nation’s self-construction, as they also allow fresh insights into the ways in which more recent programs negotiate new visions of sexuality while indebted to previous narrative traditions. Tison Pugh thoroughly explores six specific family sitcoms to illustrate how issues of sexuality intersect with other critical concerns of their respective periods and cultures.

Abstract

Big Brother kündigt die 'reality soap' als ein exemplarisches Unterhaltungsformat der Multimedialität an, das von der Faszination durch den Alltag zehrt. Wenn 'reality' zur 'soap' und 'soap' zur 'reality' wird, dann versagen die herkömmlichen Kategorien der Kulturkritik: Statt Flucht in Traumwelten bietet Big Brother den (eigenen) Alltag als Zufluchtsort an. Die hier versammelten Beiträge nehmen diese Provokation auf und erproben neue Perspektiven, um der Faszination durch Big Brother nachgehen zu können.

Abstract

This collection is the first to offer a genuinely interdisciplinary approach to Krzysztof Kieslowski’s Decalogue, a ten-film cycle of modern tales that touch on the ethical dilemmas of the Ten Commandments. The cycle’s deft handling of moral ambiguity and inventive technique established Kie?lowski as a major international director. Kie?lowski once said, “Both the deep believer and the habitual skeptic experience toothaches in exactly the same way.” Of Elephants and Toothaches takes seriously the range of thought, from theological to skeptical, condensed in the cycle’s quite human tales. Bringing together scholars of film, philosophy, literature, and several religions, the volume ranges from individual responsibility, to religion in modernity, to familial bonds, to human desire and material greed. It explores Kie?lowski’s cycle as it relentlessly solicits an ethical response that stimulates both inner disquiet and interpersonal dialogue.

Abstract

»Ma'am Captain«, Action Girls und Dritte Geschlechter - die Studie beschäftigt sich mit der Inszenierung von Geschlecht in der populären Kultur am Beispiel von sechs Science-Fiction-Serien. Das hegemoniale Bild heldischer Männlichkeit wird nach wie vor reproduziert, gleichzeitig treten auch neue, weibliche Figurentypen auf. Anhand geschlechtsspezifisch kodierter Themen wie Macht, Autorität, Gewalt, Partnerschaft, Sexualität und Elternschaft werden die narrativen und visuellen Strategien der Geschlechterinszenierung beleuchtet. Die Methodik und die Ergebnisse der Studie sind gut auf die Analyse anderer Film- und Fernsehgenres übertragbar.

Abstract

In der Studie wird die aktuelle Medien- und Rezeptionsforschung - insbesondere im Kontext der Cultural Studies - mit der Geschlechterforschung verknüpft. Im Mittelpunkt steht dabei die Frage, wie sich das Verhältnis zwischen der strukturellen »Macht der Medien« und der Handlungsmacht der Zuschauenden mit Blick auf das Fernsehen neu denken lässt. Der Band leistet damit einen Beitrag zu einer kritischen Fernsehforschung, die sich über die jeweiligen Disziplinengrenzen hinweg für neue methodische und theoretische Zugänge öffnet.

Abstract

Si les nouvelles formes de communication font l’objet d’un large débat, celui-ci est généralement étendu à l’ensemble de la filière télématique (banques de données, informatique, satellites, production de programmes, etc.) et il se limite le plus souvent aux effets que celle-ci entraîne, ou risque d’entraîner, à l’intérieur des pays industrialisés. Notre propos concerne la manière dont les nouveaux médias risquent d’accélérer les changements en cours dans les pays du sud... En plaçant ce Cah...

Abstract

Newsreel cinema and television not only served as an important tool in the shaping of political spheres and the construction of national and cultural identities up to the 1960s. Today’s potent televisual forms were furthermore developed in and strongly influenced by newsreels, and much of the archived newsreel footage is repeatedly used to both illustrate and re-stage past events and their significance. This book addresses newsreel cinema and television as a medium serving the formation of cultural identities in a variety of national contexts after 1945, its role in forming audiovisual narratives of a »biopic of the nation«, and the technical, aesthetical, and political challenges of archiving and restaging cinematic and televisual newsreel.

Abstract

Noch nie zuvor gab es so viele Fernsehserien mit so vielen schönen neuen Heldinnen. Mädchen und Frauen wie Ally McBeal, Buffy, Carrie Bradshaw, Daria, die Gilmore Girls, Joey Potter, Nikita und Xena regieren in der Serienwelt. Dieses Buch geht der Frage nach, wie es zu diesem medialen Trend gekommen ist und was ihn ausmacht. Die Popularität all dieser »Chicks« beruht vor allem auf ihrer Unkonventionalität, Progressivität und Subversivität. Sowohl in ihrer Vielfalt als auch in ihren Repräsentationen und (De-)Konstruktionen von Weiblichkeit unterwandern sie stereotypes Mädchen- und Frausein und verkörpern neue Weiblichkeitsentwürfe.
