Read and Download Annie Bullen book Brighton City Break Guide in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Brighton City Break Guide. This book was released on 2005-02 with total page 108 pages. Book excerpt: Since the publication of "The Color Purple" in 1983, Alice Walker has gained a reputation as one of the most popular and most controversial writers in the African American literary tradition. This book explains Walker's project as a "womanist" writer and as a cultural and political activist who increasingly styles herself as a New Age visionary. The author traces Walker's distinctive themes of child abuse and women's sexuality and shows the development of Walker's theories of racial hybridity, spirituality and goddess worship as well as her treatment of African American history. In an original reading of her oeuvre, Lauret shows convincingly that Walker continues to stretch her own, and her readers', imaginative visions.

Read and Download Michael F. Keaney book British Film Noir Guide in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book British Film Noir Guide. This book was released on 2015-05-20 with total page 271 pages. Book excerpt: This work presents 369 British films produced between 1937 and 1964 that embody many of the same filmic qualities as those "black films" made in the United States during the classic film noir era. This reference work makes a case for the inclusion of the British films in the film noir canon, which is still considered by some to be an exclusively American inventory. In the book's main section, the following information is presented for each film: a quote from the film; the title and release date; a rating based on the five-star system; the production company, director, cinematographer, screenwriter, and main performers; and a plot synopsis with author commentary. Appendices categorize films by rating, release date, director and cinematographer and also provide a noir and non-noir breakdown of the 47 films presented on the Edgar Wallace Mystery Theatre, a 1960s British television series that was also shown in the United States.

Read and Download Ms Leela Bakshi book Ordinary in Brighton LGBT Activisms and the City in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Ordinary in Brighton LGBT Activisms and the City. This book was released on 2013-12-28 with total page 221 pages. Book excerpt: Ordinary in Brighton? offers the first large scale examination of the impact of the UK equalities legislation on lesbian, gay, bi- and trans (LGBT) lives, and the effects of these changes on LGBT political activism. Using the participatory research project, Count Me In Too, this book investigates the material issues of social/spatial injustice that were pertinent for some - but not all- LGBT people, and explores activisms working in partnership that operated with/within the state. Ordinary in Brighton? explores the unevenly felt consequences of assimilation and inclusion in a city that was compelled to provide a place (literally and figuratively) for LGBT people. Brighton itself is understood to be exceptional, and exploring this specific location provides insights into how place operates as constitutive of lives and activisms. Despite its placing as ‘the gay capital’ and its long history as a favoured location of LGBT people, there is very little academic or popular literature published about this city. This book offers insights into the first decade of the 21st century when sexual and gender dissidents supposedly became ordinary here, rather than exceptional and transgressive. It argues that geographical imaginings of this city as the ‘gay capital’ formed activisms that sought positive social change for LGBT people. The possibilities of legislative change and urban inclusivities enabled some LGBT people to live ordinary lives, but this potential existed in tension with normalisations and exclusions. Alongside the necessary critiques, Ordinary in Brighton? asks for conceptualisations of the creative and co-operative possibilities of ordinariness. The book concludes by differentiating the exclusionary ideals of normalisation from the possibilities of ordinariness, which has the potential to render a range of people not only in-place, but commonplace.

Read and Download Linda Mcdowell book Undoing Place in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book Undoing Place . This book was released on 2020-10-07 with total page 384 pages. Book excerpt: Does geography affect our sense of 'self'? How are social characteristics mapped out on the ground? And is there any 'authentic' sense of place now, or are we increasingly 'placeless'? Concentrating on the period between the end of the Second World War and the end of the century, this Reader argues that there is a reciprocal relationship between the constitution of places and people. What it means to be a man or a woman , to have a nationality and a sense of place, has been transformed and reinvented as our view of the world has changed. The present is perceived as a time of fear, a period in which all that is solid seems to melt into air, while the 1950s are a site of nostalgia, a period of clarity and certainty, a time when people know their place. Bringing together an interdisciplinary collection of articles for social and cultural geographers, this Reader critically examines the argument that the close associations of the 1950s between place (the home, the community and the nation state) and the social divisions (gender, class and nationality) are breaking down in the 1990s. Drawing out the oppositional movements in each decade, it seeks to show how the supposed stability of one and the mobility of the other are exaggerated.
Read and Download Stephen Glynn book The British Horseracing Film in PDF, EPub, Mobi, Kindle online. Full book The British Horseracing Film. This book was released on 2019-01-05 with total page 162 pages. Book excerpt: This book constitutes the first full volume dedicated to an academic analysis of horseracing in British cinema. Through comprehensive contextual histories of film production and reception, together with detailed textual analysis, this book explores the aesthetic and emotive power of the enduringly popular horseracing genre, its ideologically-inflected landscape and the ways in which horse owners and riders, bookmakers and punters have been represented on British screen. The films discussed span from the 1890s to the present day and include silent shorts, quota quickies and big-budget biopics. A work of social and film history, The British Horseracing Film demonstrates how the so-called “sport of kings” functions as an accessible institutional structure through which to explore cinematic discussions about the British nation—but also, and equally, national approaches to British cinema.
