Performing Folklore: Ranchos Folcloricos from Lisbon to Newark

Kimberly DaCosta Holton

Performing Folklore: <I>Ranchos Folcloricos</I> from Lisbon to Newark by Kimberly DaCosta Holton

Through the lens of expressive culture, Performing Folklore tracks Portugal's transition from fascism to democracy, and from imperial metropole to EEC member state. Kimberly DaCosta Holton examines the evolution and significance of ranchos folclóricos, groups of amateur musicians and dancers who perform turn-of-the-century popular tradition and have acted as cultural barometers of change throughout 20th-century Portugal. She investigates the role that these folklore groups played in the mid-twentieth-century dictatorship, how they fell out of official favor with the advent of democracy, and...

Post-Millennial Gothic: Comedy, Romance and the Rise of Happy Gothic

Catherine Spooner

Post-Millennial Gothic: Comedy, Romance and the Rise of Happy Gothic by Catherine SpoonerSurveying the widespread appropriations of the Gothic in contemporary literature and culture, Post-Millennial Gothic shows contemporary Gothic is often romantic, funny and celebratory. Reading a wide range of popular texts, from Stephenie Meyer's Twilight series through Tim Burton's Gothic film adaptations of Sweeney Todd, Alice in Wonderland and Dark Shadows, to the appearance of Gothic in fashion, advertising and television, Catherine Spooner argues that conventional academic and media accounts of Gothic culture have overlooked this celebratory strain of 'Happy Gothic'.

The Myth and Mystery of UFOs

Thomas E. Bullard

The Myth and Mystery of UFOs by Thomas E. BullardWhen United Airlines workers reported a UFO at O'Hare Airport in November 2006, it was met with the typical denials and hush-up that usually accompany such sightings. But when a related story broke the record for hits at the Chicago Tribune's website, it was clear that such unexplained objects continued to occupy the minds of fascinated readers. Why, wonders Thomas Bullard, don't such persistent sightings command more urgent attention from scientists, scholars, and mainstream journalists?

The answer, in part, lies in Bullard's wide-ranging magisterial survey of the mysterious, frustrating, and...

It provides a reading of cultural texts in circulation in the present 'age of austerity'. Through its central focus-popular culture-it considers the impact and influence of austerity across media and textual categories. The collection presents a theoretical deconstruction of popular culture's...

Creativity, Religion and Youth Cultures

Anne M. Harris

Creativity, Religion and Youth Cultures by Anne M. HarrisThis book explores the rich intersection between faith, religion and performing arts in culture-based youth groups. The co-constitutive identity-building work of music, performance, and drama for Samoan and Sudanese youth in church contexts has given rise to new considerations of diversity, cultural identity and the religious practices and rituals that inform them. For these young people, their culture-specific churches provide a safe if "imagined community" (Anderson, 2006) in which they can express these emerging identities, which move beyond simple framings like "multicultural" to explicitly...
