Digital Queer Cultures in India: Politics, Intimacies and Belonging

Rohit K. Dasgupta

Digital Queer Cultures in India: Politics, Intimacies and Belonging by Rohit K. Dasgupta

Sexuality in India offers an expression of nationalist anxieties and is a significant marker of modernity through which subjectivities are formed among the middle class. This book investigates the everyday experience of queer Indian men on digital spaces. It explores how queer identities are formed in virtual spaces and how the existence of such spaces challenge and critique 'Indian'-ness. It also looks at the role of class and intimacy within the discourse.

What the Trump?! A Sane Person's Guide to Surviving in the Age of Trump

Steven S. Stevens

What the Trump?! A Sane Person's Guide to Surviving in the Age of Trump by Steven S. StevensThere is no getting away from it - the undisputed king of the comb-over Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the USA. Love him? Step away from this book immediately. Loathe him? Read on. Through a series of playfully mindful exercises we will come to terms with the grief over this most shocking of election results. We will make no denials about Trump's presidency, we will sit with our anger, we will put a pin in our depression and we will embrace the next four years (please God - only four!) with the open palms of acceptance. We shall over-comb. Written and illustrated by the team that brought...

Reality TV

Jon Kraszewski

Reality TV by Jon Kraszewski

From early first-wave programs such as Candid Camera, An American Family, and The Real World to the shows on our television screens and portable devices today, reality television consistently takes us to cities-such as New York, Los Angeles, and Boston-to imagine the place of urbanity in American culture and society. Jon Kraszewski offers the first extended account of this phenomenon, as he makes the politics of urban space the center of his history and theory of reality television.

Kraszewski situates reality television in a larger economic transformation that started in the 1980s when America...

Routledge Handbook of East Asian Popular Culture

Koichi Iwabuchi

Routledge Handbook of East Asian Popular Culture by Koichi Iwabuchi

Since the 1990s there has been a dramatic increase in cultural flows and connections between the countries in the East Asian region. Nowhere is this more apparent than when looking at popular culture where uneven but multilateral exchanges of Japanese, Korean, Taiwanese, Hong Kong and Chinese products have led to the construction of an 'East Asian Popular Culture'. This is both influenced by, and in turn influences, the national cultures, and generates transnational co-production and reinvention.

As East Asian popular culture becomes a global force, it is increasingly important for us to understand...
