Television And Postfeminist Housekeeping

In this book, Nathanson examines how contemporary American television and associated digital media depict women’s everyday lives as homemakers, career women, and mothers. Her focus on American popular culture from the 1990s through the present reveals two extremes: narratives about women who cannot keep house and narratives about women who only keep house. Nathanson looks specifically at the issue of time in this context and argues that the media constructs panics about domestic time scarcity while at the same time offering solutions for those very panics. Analyzing TV programs such as How Clean is Your House, Up All Night, and Supernanny, she finds that media’s portrayals of women’s time is crucial to understanding definitions of femininity, women’s labor, and leisure in the postfeminist context.

Producing Women examines the ways femininity is produced through new media. Michele White considers how women are constructed, produce themselves as subjects, form vital production cultures on sites like Etsy, and deploy technological processes to reshape their identities and digital characteristics. She studies the means through which women market traditional female roles, are viewed, and produce and restructure their gendered, raced, eroticized, and sexual identities. Incorporating a range of examples across numerous forms of media—including trash the dress wedding photography, Internet how-to instructions about zombie walk brides, nail polish blogging, DIY crafting, and reborn doll production—Producing Women elucidates women’s production cultures online, and the ways that individuals can critically study and engage with these practices.

The Aesthetics Of Nostalgia Tv

The Aesthetics of Nostalgia TV explores the aesthetic politics of nostalgia for 1950s and 60s America on contemporary television. Specifically, it looks at how nostalgic TV production design shapes and is shaped by larger historical discourses on gender and technological change, and America's perceived decline as a global power. Alex Bevan argues that the aesthetics of nostalgic TV tell stories of their own about historical decline and progress, and the place of the baby boomer television suburb in American national memory. She contests theories on nostalgia that see it as stagnating, regressive, or a reversion to outdated gender and racial politics, and the technophobic longing for a bygone era; and, instead, argues nostalgia is an important form of historical memory and vehicle for negotiating periods of historical transition. The book addresses how and why the shows construct the boomer era as a placeholder for gender, racial, technological, and declensionist discourses of the present. The book uses Mad Men (AMC, 2007-2015), Ugly Betty (ABC, 2006-2010), Desperate Housewives (ABC, 2004-2012), and film remakes of 1950s and 60s family sitcoms as primary case studies.

Though many environmentalists and political activists dismiss everyday environmentalism as ineffective and self-deluding, this dissertation argues that it is firmly embedded in the environmental imagination, and that it harbors fertile seeds of opposition to the culture of consumer capitalism and the fundamental economic arrangements that support it.

In his landmark Introduction to the American Horror Film, Robin Wood noted that horror "has consistently been one of the most popular and, at the same time, the most disreputable of Hollywood genres." Horror is still immensely popular but its assimilation into our culture continues apace. In Horror Zone, leading international writers on horror take horror out into the world beyond cinema screens to explore the interconnections between the films and modern media and entertainment industries, economies and production practices, cultural and political forums, spectators and fans. They critically examine the ways in which the horror genre functions in all its multifarious forms, for example the Friday the 13th films as modern grand guignol, the relationship between the contemporary horror film and the theme park ride, horror as art house cinema, connections between pornography and the horror film and the place of special effects in this most respectable of Hollywood genres.

"Exploring the contradictions surrounding modern-day femininity and its complicated relationship with feminism and postfeminism, this book provides a history of femininity in popular culture since the 1960s, analysing its shifting relationship with (post)feminism and concepts of female victimization. Through an examination of a range of popular female and feminist icons and paradigms, the text offers an innovative and forward-looking perspective on femininity and the modern female self. The book marks an important cross-generational moment in feminist thinking that challenges us to re-think previous conceptions of femininity and debate critical issues that remain unresolved in contemporary culture: does femininity necessarily imply powerlessness and victimization? Can femininsm and femininity co-exist? What emerges between these previously opposed extremes?"--Book cover.
