The Mouse and the Myth: Sacred Art and Secular Ritual of Disneyland

Dorene Koehler

The Mouse and the Myth: Sacred Art and Secular Ritual of Disneyland by Dorene KoehlerRituals mark significant moments in our lives-perhaps none more significant than moments of lightheartedness, joy, and play. The rituals that bond humanity create our most transcendent experiences and meaningful memories. Rituals of play are among the most sacred of any of the rites in which humanity may engage. Although we may fail to recognize rituals of play, they are always present in culture, providing a kind of psychological release for their participants, child and adult alike. Ritual is central to storytelling. Story and practice are symbiotic. Their relationship reflects the vitality...

Television on Demand: Curatorial Culture and the Transformation of TV

MJ Robinson

Television on Demand: Curatorial Culture and the Transformation of TV by MJ RobinsonSince 2010 "curationÂ?? has become a marketing buzzword. Wrenched from its traditional home in the world of high art, everything from food to bed linens to dog toys now finds itself subject to this formerly rarified activity. Most of the time the term curation is being inaccurately used to refer to the democratization of choice Â? an inevitable development and side effect of the economics of long tail distribution. However, as any true curator will tell you Â? curation is so much more than choosing Â? it relies upon human intelligence, agency, evaluation and carefully considered criteria...

The Environmental Documentary: Cinema Activism in the 21st Century

John A. Duvall

The Environmental Documentary: Cinema Activism in the 21st Century by John A. DuvallThe Environmental Documentary provides the first extensive coverage of the most important environmental films of the decade, including their approach to their topics and their impacts on public opinion and political debate. While documentaries with themes of environmental activism date back at least to Pare Lorenz's films of the 1930's, no previous decade has produced the number and quality of films that engage environmental issues from an activist viewpoint. The convergence of high profile issues like climate change, fossil fuel depletion, animal abuse, and corporate malfeasance has combined...

The History of the Provincial Press in England

Rachel Matthews

The History of the Provincial Press in England by Rachel MatthewsRegional newspapers around the globe are fighting to survive in the face of challenges to their economic model, due to the constant influx of new technology. At the same time, while studies of the national press have created a continuous narrative on the newspaper, the history of the regional press has been subject to relatively little academic scrutiny, despite being a significant industry in terms of a readership, circulation and profit.

By focusing on provincial English newspapers, Matthews makes the case for the larger issue of the future of local newspapers worldwide. She argues that a...
