How does globalization reflect on modern musical culture? Exactly from this angle is analyzed the synthesis of traditional Georgian folklore and different musical trends, jazz, rock and pop music in our report. The analysis of globalization in XX century musical culture requires complex consideration. It is expressed in studying modern musical tendencies and their structural analysis. From this point of view Georgian traditional culture ,which undergoes certain changes in post-modern epoch is very interesting.
By changes we consider combination of folk and jazz elements and formation of entirely new folk-jazz. Georgian popular music is an analogy of existing musical tendency in Western pop- culture. It is also important that in popular music is found transformation of folk music, which is used entirely and in the form of citation, giving specific musical touch to composition. Cortes uclm. To Gramsci, cultural and ideological hegemony, as well as the Modern Prince, represents a collective will. Gramsci holds that the Modern Prince is an educator who needs to be educated.
It is the proletarian itself which produces its organic intellectuals. Education does not suppress but purifies. It is a catharsis. Education through cultural hegemony becomes a remedy against coercion so that the kingdom of necessity could become into the kingdom of freedom as the origin of a popular culture. Regarding ideology itself, Gramsci is aware of the danger of confusion in the use of the concept of ideology in relation to the superstructure: For this reason, Gramsci distinguishes two kinds of ideologies.
The former concept has been favoured by Gramsci, giving rise to the conception of ideology as a class world view. We invite you to discover it. It affirms the Lacanian notion of the true apprehension of Self as being in recognition and relation to the Other. Intercultural competence is an important goal in foreign language teaching in Europe. We use feature films to promote this competence, focusing on basic cultural concepts, such as world view and family values. In film, such abstract values become concrete.
Film narratives show how people, with their own social and individual identities, orient themselves towards different value systems. The narratives show what the protagonists do in practice when they, for example, try to live up to values such as unconditional loyalty towards their families.
Our selected fragments illustrate the motif of marriage proposals and wedding ceremonies. Fragments linked together illustrate value systems from different perspectives, and how cultural values are connected to type of family. The different angles help counteract stereotyping. The method breaks a traditional, linear approach to film, and facilitates a firm focus on topical themes, while opening up for flexibility and creativity. In this way they become aware of their own social identities, as they simultaneously experience the differing world views of both film protagonists and fellow students.
This vouches for a dynamic intercultural learning process, particularly in a multicultural group. Film visualizes values and elicits emotional response. Taking place in an extremely difficult period of the Cold War and in the same time unique in terms of the foreign politics and propaganda associated to it, the event involved multiple and extremely interesting connections at different levels between politics with accent on foreign relations and national identity promotion and culture, more particularly popular culture propaganda, festivals and youth manifestations.
The presentation will discuss the case study by connecting this section of propaganda with the particular youth population segment and the methods applied by the system for controlling and shaping them. En: VV. Todas ellas se reflejan en este movimiento contracultural -que ya se ha convertido en cultura popular- por diversas razones. Las novelas de Nabokov contienen un trasfondo cultural muy complejo que requieren un lector instruido. El objetivo de nuestro estudio consiste en analizar la presencia de la cultura rusa popular en las novelas de Nabokov.
Extending the range and the context of such counter culture fiction to the writings of Charles Bukowski, Ken Kesey, William Burroughs or even classic writers such as D. It is now undoubted that literary production and aesthetic perceptions are fundamentally and inevitably historical, and like all other cultural artifacts, they take place within social fields dominated by hegemonic power struggles. As Frederic Jameson argues, literary texts, and literary forms in particular, are the bases for historical knowledge let alone empirical facts.
Therefore, understanding postmodern zeitgeist essentially necessitates deciphering postmodern texts from a historical perspective unfolding them in terms of both thematic and formal heredity and their social and cultural functions at jetzzeit. Thus, the examples of transgressive fiction chosen for this presentation will illustrate the existential struggles of the individual who is trying to survive in a culture of complete meaninglessness and irony, a culture of floating signs and mass consumption of commodities as well as manufactured identities. However, main characteristics of transgressive fiction turn that struggle into a consumable, self-denying and implosive parody all of which also mark the postmodern angst.
Ironically enough, transgressive fiction seems to be easily assimilated and transposed into the domain of popular culture. The open controversy of transgressive fiction, its ambigious cultural and political disposition, reasserts that literary field is not a fixed and predetermined area of cultural production but instead the form and content may greatly vary according to the social and ideological conditions in different places at different times.
Transgressive fiction, then, has certainly existed under different names, always resisting, challenging and transforming the mainstream culture. Moreover, it expressed the resentments of subcultural groupsocial hierarchization based on economic and cultural capital. Given such a theoretical background, this paper will basically discuss the function and position of transgressive fiction in popular culture, particulary referring to transgressive fiction as a postmodern genre and to what extent it stil transgresses the boundaries of social order and normality. En este trabajo intentaremos mostrar ejemplos de textos incorrectos que se usan en las redes sociales, sus efectos negativos sobre el uso de la lengua culta y sus modalidades en el lengua popular.
The show draws attention to racism, sexism, homophobia, and other kinds of discrimination in the early Sixties. By rewriting postwar suburbia, these works attempt to draw attention to issues such as gender roles, race, sexuality, and disparate lifestyles. As a result, these cinematic productions represent a structure of feeling that has been developing since the s. Discursively, they embrace diversity at the expense of criticizing the traditional suburban family model.
In this paper, I use a Cultural Studies framework to examine these three cinematic productions. Specifically, I draw on Paul du Gay et al. Additionally, I pay attention to previous cinematographic productions and their social and political contexts in order to assess how these three films relate to contemporary society. However, I do not attempt to present a definite view of these films and their role in society. Rather, I treat them as the reflection of a structure of feeling that specific social groups share.
Cerrillo Torremocha o Anna M. Using cartoon or animation characters in visual communication tools creates an effective purchasing inclination on children. Effects of the children on purchased products are increasing gradually depending upon the effects of media elements on consumption factors and the children become a strong target market that needs to be listened, informed and prevailed. At the scope of the survey, a questionnaire is applied on the parents that have children studied at kindergartens in Konya and Istanbul and at age between To collecting the data needed a questionnaire that consists of two parts is improved.
The data is analyzed by SPSS program in computer and gathered data is showed at tables and interpreted by continuous analyses. The survey has an importance for families and clothing industry in terms of deciding the clothing choices of the children, guiding to the clothing manufacturers that have a target market of families which have children, therefore controlling the choices of pre-school children on clothing purchasing. The entire nation, regardless of age, sex, race, and class origin, was immersed in this top-down national mania of modeling popular culture.
Yet, strangely enough, certain elements of pre- modern traditions and religions, such as religious spirit of traditional operas, state- supported superscription of secular gods, traditional views of space, and yin and yang of Daoism, were not completely eradicated as we usually assumed, but tactfully revitalized and appropriated in the RMO films. This research will be a critical and cultural investigation of the mechanisms by which the revolutionary heroes and heroines were sanctified and apotheosized through manipulation of space and time, content and form.
In order to do this, it will trace the indispensable relationships between religious worship and aesthetics of the RMO films, and look into how Communist cultural policy appropriated the use of such a popular medium to advance the tenets of the revolution. It will serve as an exploratory model aimed at deconstructing the previous critical assertions on RMO film productions by regarding these as constituting a film genre in their own right.
Are such links possible? Were myths merely a part of the popular area of reference in the Greek life in the 5th century BC. Perhaps, there is a possibility to use a pop-dionysiac aspect in the discussion of the dionysiac in culture. Nietzsche claimed that culture was ruined by Wagner, and all he created points to a complete spiritual decline. Therefore, the paper attempts to consider and focus on these issues.
The Victorian domestic space with its gender relations, family settings, and its embodiment of popular culture, constitutes one of such perspectives. Through his depiction of the Victorian domestic space and the representation of popular culture within this space, Dickens deliberately deconstructs the prevalent ideology of Victorian familialism and, hence, indefatigably calls for urgent reformatory measures.
So, this paper is mainly concerned with the social, moral and cultural issues that Dickens brings to the fore in his novels through his representation of the Victorian domesticity and popular culture. The publishing house and the translator had to give testimony upon the indictment and the novel faced the risk of being confiscated. However, the process of confiscating the book and the news about the trial turned the censorship into a failure. The book saw the 10th edition in November , which is a rare case and a great success in the Turkish publishing sector.
The paper aims to conduct a descriptive study on the translation, concentrating on both translational and social norms. Seventy-three year- old Indonesian artist, Tjipto Setiyono, has been doing the same thing for becak owners in Yogyakarta for more than forty years. Becaks, small-scale cycle rickshaws, are the local means of transport in Yogyakarta and other smaller cities in Indonesia.
This is both because of traffic congestion and also because they do not create an image of a modern upwardly mobile country that the government desires. Is there a future for the folk tradition of artists like Pak Tris? Or, as the society move steadily but slowly towards middle class status, will the choice of transportation become more impersonal, with corporate international status symbols like BMW, Toyota, and Mercedes Benz? It would be sad to see them go. Through a series of interviews, this paper documents the work of becak painter, Pak Tris from the village of Maxicasan near Yogyakarta, and considers the question of the future for such artists and art forms.
The popular manifestation of Lit comics comes to mind when one tries to enscribe them in the specific process of communication. By means of creative impetus and because of the development of the publishing establishment, the comfortable niche becomes less comfortable. No longer seen as an object of commodity, the revitalised visual showmanship illustrated an eschatological maelstrom, with a redefined narrative consistency of the new comic books.
Then, by adding a closer look to this medium of fragments, conjunction and semantic fetching I am interested in bringing forth some comparative samples from different media platforms and even discuss the controversial theory of medium- specificity by following the challenges of Noel Carroll or Henry John Pratt et alii.
Researchers of folklore have criticized the scientific interest for the picturesque and unusual, necessarily past and old , aesthetically interesting and representative cultural practices. Despite this epistemological turn, the atavistic feel of the discipline's name and its object remains. This is why folklore has constantly been under the attack of political instrumentalization and under the pressure of official ideologies, especially during the times of political crises and the establishment of new political, economic and ideological systems, which has happened several times in recent Croatian history.
Folklore has proven to be very politically potent in the educational system for selecting traditions serving official ideologies, although it has been long known that folklore could not be taught as part of the official education, because the knowledge transferred in the educational system stands in opposition to the explicit and implicit conceptions which generate folklore. Ben-Amos and everyday culture of rural areas. The paper will primarily focus on the re presentation of traditional culture in educational curricula, such as the regulation of the relationship toward traditional beliefs present in oral legends after , when a new form of relationship between the Church and the state were established; the relationship toward the folklore from the War of National Liberation until and after, etc.
Mateos uclm. In this sense, utopian projects are seen by postmodern authors as textbook examples of all-explaining theories of reality, and consequently the very notion of utopia seems in conflict with the postmodern stance. Nevertheless, several critics like Fredric Jameson have realized that these postmodern doubts about utopias have been appropriated by the dominant capitalist discourse to justify the lack of alternatives to the economic and social order of late twentieth century global capitalism.
Ironically, the conviction that there is no alternative to global capitalism has been seen as another example of metanarrative by postmodern authors, and therefore subjected to criticism firstly in postmodern science fiction novels like Neuromancer, Snow Crash, Schismatrix and Slant, for instance, and then in recent postmodern science fiction movies like Matrix, V for Vendetta, In Time and, The Hunger Games, and Verbo. The aim of this paper is to show that these films launch an attack against the dominant capitalist discourse and offer wide audiences a popular —and perhaps domesticated— notion of utopia and project for revolution which are coherent with and may stand in the postmodern worldview.
The music is a combination of African-based rhythms, European forms, and both Brazilian and European instruments. The "choro" composers and performers were representative of social and racial diversity in Brazil. The music traversed from the plantations to the cities and through upper and lower class societies.
Perhaps the most prominent "choro" composer and performer, Pixinguinha, suffered much discrimination with his group the Oito Batutas, when traveling throughout Brazil and on their trip to Paris. They, along with other prominent composers and performers, fought to promote the meaning of the "choro" not only as a national music style but one that was truly representative of Brazil and its people. The presentation also includes discussion about the social and political struggles that these composers and musicians endured in establishing the national music for their entire country.
Finally, the presentation closes with listening to relevant music examples on a compact disc of this author clarinet and Brazilian pianist, Rafael Dos Santos, playing historical "choros". It is often defined as constant defragmentation, endless branching or total mosaic. There are many phenomena, processes, criteria and contexts, in other words causes, which we cannot balance, and they all decide about its character.
There is no measure which allows to create lasting and logical connections between various spaces, aspects and dimensions of popular culture. Although this inadequacy seems nowadays to be something indispensable there are certain reductions which limit its variety. I agree with Ted Friedman, who claims that computer games assign direction for culture, which we all follow in order to play with future.
In the past necessity rules and instructions overwhelmed coincidence or at least they both were balanced. Nowadays coincidence overwhelms necessity. Bountifulness and changeability of rules and instructions we choose them from unlimited repertoire decide not only about those most popular forms of fun and communication but also about character of interaction strategies, which have to be used by increasing group of popular culture participants.
Therefore adjusting of these strategies or critical reflection on them give the researchers an opportunity to improve their knowledge about chances and dangers which are brought to contemporary man by popular culture. It is also important because of the fact that such postmodern game becomes the basis for interdisciplinary approach, which has to be scientifically redefined in context of popular culture.
Commenting on this issue, I do not agree with Jean Francois Lyotard and his opinion that interdisciplinary approach is already beyond control of science and this constitutes its vital strength. In fact, the postmodern as postmodernism, is simultaneously a style, a discourse, and an epoch.
Thus, the postmodern terrain is defined almost exclusively in visual terms. In this context, postmodern cinema has emerged in the s and s as a powerfully creative force in Hollywood film making, reflecting and helping to shape the historic convergence of media culture, technology, and consumerism. Taking into discussion these aspects, the purpose of my paper is to examine how has the postmodern been described in Hollywood cinema, especially in three films: Pulp Fiction Quentin Tarantino, , Lost Highway David Lynch, and Mulholland Drive David Lynch, My reason for opting for these films is that filmmakers such as Tarantino and Lynch, despite significant differences in their style, produce films that are reflexive and self referential, and even subversive.
Their departure from conventional Hollywood formulas and motifs that define the studio system- their pronounced cultural radicalism- is rarely associated with any sort of political radicalism even where a harsh social critique might be visible. Por lo que se refiere al contenido de los textos, nos vamos a centrar fundamentalmente en las diferentes y contradictorias interpretaciones que ha tenido la figura del rey de los elfos.
The aim of this study is to analyze the roots of popular folkloric components that can be found un a literate novel as in the current King of the Alders by Michel Tournier. The same tale was set to music by Schubert and nowadays we can still find it represented by different opera singer such as Anne Sofie von Otter or Jessye Norman. As regards the content of the texts, we will focus primarily on the different and contradictory interpretations that have had the figure of the king of the Elves. However, cultured in the narrative of the twentieth century, the character has been portrayed as a savior of enslaved young by Nazi German army during World War II.
The characterizations have in common that both have tried to show the disturbing and sinister attitude to approach children with language that does not allow us to figure out which is his true mission: to be his executioner or his savior. The story follows the life of an unnamed character, who starts running an underground fight club in order to overcome his psychological crisis and insomnia.
Fighting becomes a therapy for men who want to restore their masculinity in order to achieve psychological peace. The story focuses on the unnamed narrator and his alter ego Tyler Durden, a man who embodies the desired masculinity all men would like to possess. The fight club needs to be understood as a psychological therapy that helps men to feel their power and masculinity in a world that no longer seems to value such qualities.
Bob used to be a bodybuilder until he was diagnosed with cancer and lost his testicles and developed big breasts because of the estrogen treatment. The figure of Big Bob offers a different conception of masculinity in the story, opposed to the masculinity presented in Tyler Durden. Considering that Bob is a man with breasts, without testicles and with a sweet and soft voice, he could be read as the representation of a feminized man.
Could then Big Bob be the embodiment of masculinity in crisis? What does masculinity in crisis really mean?

Citizenship in new nations, post-war Mexico and post-independent India, is imagined and invented through institutions such as the constitution and law, education and discipline, family and secularism and the deployment of police and army. The femme fatale, is intrinsically linked to the nocturnal city as allegorical representations of a gendered space which needs to be cleansed and contained into the Nation; Hindi and Mexican noir films are very much informed by the dynamics of these situations and hence their popularity and success.
Yet it is the very populism of these texts through which the mass consumer resists any kind of passive manipulation by the culture industry. The mass production of this citizenry, though a result of the culture industry, sensitizes it i. The author of this series, Suzanne Collins, transmits a specific message about human commitment as the key to self-preservation and happiness.
The strong emotional pull of The Hunger Games series raises the issue of reader emotional neediness and authorial use of empathy. In terms of emotions theory, my analysis works on the premise that pop fiction best-sellers cannot be ignored because they accurately reflects a vast area of human emotional life. This concept was, and still is, used to refer to the black character who helps, protects or guides the white character towards the right path; sometimes even making use of some kind of magical power.
Since there have been numerous films offering different representations of this figure, most of them as male. Some examples of this are found in movies as different as The Shining , The Green Mile or Hitch , amongst others. I will also look into how these representations reinforce or shatter female African-American stereotypes the angry black woman, the strong black woman, etc.
The film offers a wide range of representations that go from the illiterate slave to the independent business owner, thus providing a great piece of corpus to work on. My presentation will take an interdisciplinary approach, taking into account elements from the fields of Gender Studies, Cultural Studies and African American Studies. Her presence in the public realm, literally on the centre stage, challenges the restriction of women to the domestic sphere.
In later years scholars in different fields have questioned this spatial and ideological division, which has proven to be a bourgeois normativity. More so, feminist critics have defied the exclusion of women from the public realm examining how female figures appropriate different spaces normally associated with men.

Victorian popular forms of entertainment as the circus, the freak show and the music hall are clearly linked to the working class, which was less concerned with the immorality and respectability of middle--class values. Although the female performer traditionally has been linked to the prostitute as both were public women and hired for entertainment, recent studies of the nineteenth--century actress challenge this idea throwing a different light onto the music hall actress.
My aim is to dissociate the Victorian actress from the prostitute and demonstrate how this female professional performer contradicts socially induced roles of femininity. In this paper, I will analyse nineteenth- -century popular culture, specifically the music hall, as a space where women could could negotiate mobility, power and independence.
Pisa uclm. Al principio su trabajo se organizaba en torno a una comunidad de artistas y sus creaciones eran conjuntas. Prise de Parole : Sudbury. Robertson uregina. Examining media, popular culture, and art discourse, a critical account of racial categorization and norms, the policing of racial behaviour and the regulation of racial bodies are troubled. Drawing on the work of Michel Foucault, Judith Butler, and theories of race, an examination of how race is a form of discipline, that race is performative, and that racial identity can be conflated with art discourse forms the basis of an analysis of the life of Anishinaabe artist Norval Morrisseau.
Morrisseau was the first Indigenous artist in Canada to break into the Canadian art scene with a gallery exhibition in Toronto in In the artist held an English-style tea party at his remote reserve home in northern Ontario. A spectacle, the Toronto art patrons were treated to shamanic ceremony and tea service by the performing artist. La idea de los muertos volviendo para buscar un amante vivo era un tema popular en el folclore europeo.

The main idea underneath lies in the fact that morality is part of the process of human evolution and that it is totally compatible with Christian morality, so it would not be a morality outside a capricious God, but a morality that it is given by a God who wants us to express who we are as human beings created to his image alike.

However our consciousness is not the result of a process of evolution but lies in the sanctuary of men, when a man is alone with God and whose voice echoes his deepest part. This paper provides a tentative examination of the dynamics of Chinese animation industry from multiple perspectives with the case of Happy Lamb and Grey Wolf. The show is about a group of goats living on the Green Pasture, and the story revolving around a clumsy wolf who wants to eat them.
The show was also aired in Taiwan, India and Singapore. Besides, the Happy Lamb and Grey Wolf movie series started on show annually in China since , and has been updating the records of Chinese box office for a Chinese animated film ever since. Wikipedia Through in-depths interviews and archive study, this paper examines the performance of Happy Lamb and Grey Wolf from the following perspectives: How has Chinese government policy influenced their production? What's the relationship between investment and creativity in a relatively under-developed animation market with high investment risks?
How to manage creative talents in a creative way? How daily interactions with the local community interact with their production? It serves as a up-to-date study of a rising filed of Chinese popular culture, the findings might be of some value to researchers, government policy makers and professionals in the animation industry.
