Neo-Bohemia brings the study of bohemian culture down to the street level, while maintaining a commitment to understanding broader historical and economic urban contexts. Simultaneously readable and academic, this book anticipates key urban trends at the dawn of the twenty-first century, shedding light on both the nature of contemporary bohemias and the cities that house them. The relevance of understanding the trends it depicts has only increased, especially in light of the current urban crisis puncturing a long period of gentrification and new economy development, putting us on the precipice, perhaps, of the next new bohemia.

Mit dem Hype um »kreative Städte« ist eine stadtpolitische Handlungspraxis entstanden, die als »strategische Kreativplanung« weltweit Verwendung findet. Constanze Klotz zeigt beobachtbare Ansätze der Praxis auf und verortet sie mithilfe der Cultural Theory im Gesamtkontext von »Kreativität« und »Stadt«. So werden Unterschiede ebenso wie Wechselwirkungen zwischen städtischen und nicht-städtischen Strategien sichtbar. Am Beispiel der Internationalen Bauausstellung IBA Hamburg (2007-2013) und mithilfe von Experteninterviews arbeitet die kulturwissenschaftliche Studie stadtpolitische Interventionsmöglichkeiten für das Steuerungsparadoxon »Kreativität« heraus.

The Routledge Handbook of the Sociology of Arts and Culture offers a comprehensive overview of sociology of art and culture, focusing especially – though not exclusively – on the visual arts, literature, music, and digital culture. Extending, and critiquing, Bourdieu’s influential analysis of cultural capital, the distinguished international contributors explore the extent to which cultural omnivorousness has eclipsed highbrow culture, the role of age, gender and class on cultural practices, the character of aesthetic preferences, the contemporary significance of screen culture, and the restructuring of popular culture. The Handbook critiques modes of sociological determinism in which cultural engagement is seen as the simple product of the educated middle classes. The contributions explore the critique of Eurocentrism and the global and cosmopolitan dimensions of cultural life. The book focuses particularly on bringing cutting edge ‘relational’ research methodologies, both qualitative and quantitative, to bear on these debates. This handbook not only describes the field, but also proposes an agenda for its development which will command major international interest.

Bohemia In America 1858 1920

Bohemia in America, 1858–1920 explores the construction and emergence of "Bohemia" in American literature and culture. Simultaneously a literary trope, a cultural nexus, and a socio-economic landscape, la vie bohème traveled to the United States from the Parisian Latin Quarter in the 1850s. At first the province of small artistic coteries, Bohemia soon inspired a popular vogue, embodied in restaurants, clubs, neighborhoods, novels, poems, and dramatic performances across the country. Levin's study follows la vie bohème from its earliest expressions in the U.S. until its explosion in Greenwich Village in the 1910s. Although Bohemia was everywhere in nineteenth- and twentieth-century American culture, it has received relatively little scholarly attention. Bohemia in America, 1858–1920 fills this critical void, discovering and exploring the many textual and geographic spaces in which Bohemia was conjured. Joanna Levin not only provides access to a neglected cultural phenomenon but also to a new and compelling way of charting the development of American literature and culture.

City leaders now confront a global competition for economic investment, and urban elites are casting about for strategies that promise to secure a share of this future of global economic growth. However, many of these strategies are largely symbolic in nature. City leaders, for example, compete for the Olympics so they can broadcast spectacular urban vistas to global television audiences. Officials pour public funds into tourist amenities to cultivate an image of vitality and renewal. But how are the local politics of urban redevelopment intertwined with the global politics of circulating vital urban images? Urban Communication brings together scholars from communication, cultural studies, and urban sociology to explore the symbolic dimensions of contemporary city-building, drawing on case studies from around the world.

Suburbs can be incubators of creativity: innovative and complex, but all too often underappreciated. In Creative Margins, Alison L. Bain documents the unique role of Canadian artists and cultural workers in suburban place-formation and dismantles mischaracterizations of suburbs as cultural wastelands. Creative Margins interweaves stories of the challenges and opportunities presented by the creation of culture in suburbs, focusing on Etobicoke and Mississauga outside Toronto, and Surrey and North Vancouver outside Vancouver. The book investigates whether the creative process unfolds differently for suburban and urban cultural workers, as well as how this process is affected by the presence or absence of cultural infrastructure and planning initiatives. Bain shows how suburban culture can enhance a city-region’s vitality and sustainability. This book firmly debunks the myth of culture as a solely urban phenomenon and demonstrates the social and economic merits of investing in suburban art and culture.

Man schreibt das Jahr 1962. Unter absurden Umständen kommt Quido zur Welt – im Parkett eines Prager Theaters am Ende einer Aufführung von »Warten auf Godot«, die seine Mutter nicht stören wollte. Nicht minder absurd und theatralisch verläuft das Leben von Quido und seiner Familie, die zunächst in Prag lebt und dann 1968 nach dem Einmarsch der Truppen des Warschauer Pakts in die Provinz zieht. Miteinander und gegeneinander erzieht sie den kleinen Quido, der sich zu einem hochintelligenten, altklugen und fetten Kind entwickelt. Die Umstände, unter denen Quido und sein jüngerer Bruder heranwachsen, sind eigentlich armselig, werden aber, immer aus Quidos Perspektive, mit wunderbarer Komik erzählt. Er entdeckt bald Nischen, in denen er überleben, sich vor dem Zugriff von Familie und Schule schützen kann – Bücher, die frühe Liebe zu einer Schulfreundin, die er jung heiratet, und das Schreiben. Als sich die Zeiten bessern, wird sein erstes Buch fertig: Blendende Jahre für Hunde.
