Media Matter: The Materiality of Media, Matter as Medium

Bernd Herzogenrath

Media Matter: The Materiality of Media, Matter as Medium by Bernd HerzogenrathWhat is a medium? If Nietzsche was right in claiming that "our writing equipment takes part in the forming of our thoughts,?? that media help us "think," and if different media allow for different ways of thinking, then the "body" of the respective medium in question, its materiality, shapes and influences the range and direction of how media make us think. Shouldn't we consequently speak of informed matter and of materialized information?Launching Bloomsbury's Thinking Media series, Media Matter introduces readers to the nascent field of media-philosophy. Contributors urge readers to re-adjust...

States of Trial: Manhood in Philip Roth¿s Post-War America

Ann Basu

States of Trial: Manhood in Philip Roth¿s Post-War America by Ann BasuThis study of five towering Philip Roth novels - Operation Shylock, the American Pastoral trilogy, and The Plot Against America - explores his vision of a turbulent post-war America personified in trial-racked Jewish American men. These works collectively register the impact of post-1945 upheavals upon the nation and American trial-based myths about wholesomeness and regeneration. Roth shows how the "stories of old" which moulded American self-making have produced disorderly and disruptive counter-stories, playing themselves out in Jewish men marked by spots and stains where their constitutional...

Making Time in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon: Art, History, and Empire

Maria Pramaggiore

Making Time in Stanley Kubrick's Barry Lyndon: Art, History, and Empire by Maria PramaggioreConsidered by critics to be Stanley Kubrick's masterpiece, Barry Lyndon has suffered from scholarly and popular neglect. Maria Pramaggiore argues that one key reason that this film remains unappreciated, even by Kubrick aficionados, is that its transnational and intermedial contexts have not been fully explored. Taking a novel approach, she looks at the film from a transnational perspective -- as a foreign production shot in Ireland and an adaptation of a British novel by an American director about an Irish subject. Pramaggiore argues that, in Barry Lyndon, Kubrick develops his richest philosophical...

Adaptations in the Sound Era: 1927-37

Deborah Cartmell

Adaptations in the Sound Era: 1927-37 by Deborah CartmellThere is no disputing that the coming of sound heralded a new era for adaptations. We take it for granted today that a film is enhanced by sound but it was not a view unanimously held in the early period of sound cinema. While there was a substantial degree of skepticism in the late 1920s and early 30s about the advantages of sound, what we would call technophobia today, the inclusion of speech in screen versions of literary and theatrical works, undeniably revised what it was to be an adaptation: words.

Focusing on promotional materials, Adaptations in the Sound Era tracks early attempts...

Resting on the Future: Catholic Theology for an Unfinished Universe

John F. Haught

Resting on the Future: Catholic Theology for an Unfinished Universe by John F. HaughtScience has now demonstrated without a doubt that we live in an "unfinished universe.?? Discoveries in geology, biology, cosmology and other fields of scientific inquiry have shown that the cosmos has a narrative character and that the story is far from over. The sense of a universe that is still coming into being provides a fertile new framework for thinking about the relationship of faith to science. John F. Haught argues that if we take seriously the fact that the universe is a drama still unfolding, we can think new thoughts about God, and indeed about all the perennial themes of theology....

Content is King: News Media Management in the Digital Age

Gary Graham & Anita Greenhill & Donald Shaw

Content is King: News Media Management in the Digital Age by Gary Graham & Anita Greenhill & Donald ShawFrom the viewpoint of newspaper organizations the main competitive media has shrunk to only one, the internet. But the effect of this innovation has been devastating in capturing the vast majority of the advertising revenues on which newspapers have depended. The larger the internet-based media became the more newspapers and other media shrank. Pairing an academic and former industry news manager, this textbook assesses the situation in which the regional news media industry finds itself, and explores methods, processes and techniques, which might usefully be introduced to help the news media...

Popular Music and the Politics of Novelty

Pete Dale

Popular Music and the Politics of Novelty by Pete DalePopular music, today, has supposedly collapsed into a 'retromania' which, according to leading critic Simon Reynolds, has brought a 'slow and steady fading of the artistic imperative to be original.' Meanwhile, in the estimation of philosopher Alain Badiou, a significant political event will always require 'the dictatorial power of a creation ex nihilo'. Everywhere, it seems, at least amongst commentators of a certain age and type, pessimism prevails with regards to the predominant aesthetic preferences of the twenty first century: popular music, supposedly, is in a rut.

Yet when, if ever, did...

Writing the 9/11 Decade: Reportage and the Evolution of the Novel

Charlie Lee-Potter

Writing the 9/11 Decade: Reportage and the Evolution of the Novel by Charlie Lee-PotterWriting the 9/11 Decade investigates the relation of the novel to reportage, and the role of both
in shaping culture, by looking at novelists' journalistic responses to the September 11 attacks.

Journalist and academic Charlie Lee-Potter argues that novelists were entrapped by the
expectation that they would provide an immediate non-fiction response to 9/11. Beginning with
an examination of the sometimes mawkish writing that emerged in the days after the attacks,
Writing the 9/11 Decade traces the evolution of literary journalism - in writers such as Ian
McEwan, Paul Auster, Don DeLillo, Mohsin Hamid...

The Modern Papacy

Samuel Gregg

The Modern Papacy by Samuel GreggSince the dawn of the Enlightenment, modernity and the Papacy have experienced a difficult though never severed relationship. The Modern Papacy goes beyond the caricatures to demonstrate how the popes - specifically John Paul II and Benedict XVI - have articulated a sophisticated critique of the post-Enlightenment world, one that acknowledges the real progress made in modernity while simultaneously highlighting its political and philosophical shortcomings. Far from falling on deaf ears, the nature of their engagement with the modern world has sparked criticism and praise from Catholics and non-Catholics...

Politics of Happiness: Connecting the philosophical ideas of Hegel, Nietzsche and Derrida to the Political Ideologies of happine

Ross Abbinnett

Politics of Happiness: Connecting the philosophical ideas of Hegel, Nietzsche and Derrida to the Political Ideologies of happine by Ross AbbinnettThis unique and engaging study argues that the Western concern with achieving happiness should be understood in terms of its relationship to the political ideologies that have emerged since the Enlightenment. To do so, each chapter examines the place that happiness occupies in the construction of ideologies that have formed the political terrain of the West, including liberalism, postmodernism, socialism, fascism, and religion. Throughout, Hegel's phenomenology, Nietzsche's genealogy, and Derrida's account of deconstruction as reactions to modernization are used to show that the politics of...

Cinematic Chronotopes: Here, Now, Me

Pepita Hesselberth

Cinematic Chronotopes: Here, Now, Me by Pepita HesselberthThe site of cinema is on the move. The extent to which technologically mediated sounds and images continue to be experienced as cinematic today is largely dependent on the intensified sense of being 'here,' 'now' and 'me' that they convey. This intensification is fundamentally rooted in the cinematic's potential to intensify our experience of time, to convey time's thickening, of which the sense of place, and a sense of self-presence are the correlatives. In this study, Pepita Hesselberth traces this thickening of time across four different spatio-temporal configurations of the cinematic: a...

Danger Mouse's The Grey Album

Danger Mouse's The Grey Album by Charles FairchildThis book marks the tenth anniversary of The Grey Album. The online release and circulation of what Danger Mouse called his 'art project' was an unexpected watershed in the turn-of-the-century brawls over digital creative practice. The album's suppression inspired widespread digital civil disobedience and brought a series of contests and conflicts over creative autonomy in the online world to mainstream awareness. The Grey Album highlighted, by its very form, the profound changes wrought by the new technology and represented the struggle over the tectonic shifts in the production, distribution...
