Proud to Be an Okie: Cultural Politics, Country Music, and Migration to Southern California Reviews

Proud to Be an Okie: Cultural Politics, Country Music, and Migration to Southern California

Proud to Be an Okie brings to life the influential country music scene that flourished in and around Los Angeles from the Dust Bowl migration of the 1930s to the early 1970s. The first work to fully illuminate the political and cultural aspects of this intriguing story, the book takes us from Woody Guthrie’s radical hillbilly show on Depression-era radio to Merle Haggard’s “Okie from Muskogee” in the late 1960s. It explores how these migrant musicians and their audiences came to gain a sense of identity through music and mass media, to embrace the New Deal, and to celebrate African American and Mexican American musical influences before turning toward a more conservative outlook. What emerges is a clear picture of how important Southern Cal

ELVIS PRESLEY HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES ON A MODERN ICON

ELVIS PRESLEY HISTORICAL AND CULTURAL PERSPECTIVES ON A MODERN ICON

Elvis Presley has made a mark in history beyond his lifetime. While not a giant historical figure on the scale of Plato. Julius Caesar, Washington, Napoleon or Stalin, he still commands attention. Presley has a legacy that is still controversial as a man who rose up and made it to the top of his field, rock ‘n’ roll music.

Presley has a cultural legacy in the English language with expressions that few other artists have. He is part of the culture in ways that go beyond the music. Rock music in the 1950s spurred social change and Presley was not the first, but permitted others to follow.

Pastiche: Cultural Memory in Art, Film, Literature

Pastiche: Cultural Memory in Art, Film, Literature

Pastiche
Cultural Memory in Art, Film, LiteratureIngeborg HoestereyTraces the rise of the pastiche in the arts and popular culture.In the last two decades cultural theorists and artists have redefined a genre of artistic expression that for centuries was regarded as both elusive and notorious: the pastiche, or pasticcio. Today, highly engaging manifestations of the genre minor can be found in architecture, painting, and mixed media installations; in film, literature, and performance modes ranging from the operatic to rock event; and in supposedly trivial discourses such as advertising. Postmodern pastiche is about cultural memory as a history of seeing and writing. One of the markers that sets aesthetic postmodernism apart from modernism

Cultural Mediators: Artists and Writers at the Crossroads of Tradition, Innovation and Reception in the Low Countries and Italy 1450-1650 (Groningen Studies in Cultural Change)

Cultural Mediators: Artists and Writers at the Crossroads of Tradition, Innovation and Reception in the Low Countries and Italy 1450-1650 (Groningen Studies in Cultural Change)

The notion of cultural mediation is a promising albeit not yet methodologically clear-cut and well-probed instrument for studying artistic and literary phenomena in the Late Medieval and Early Modern Period. This volume addresses the role of artists and writers as cultural mediators in a variety of cultural fields such as religion, politics, morality and artistic expression (art, literature and theatre). It fully acknowledges the diversity of roles that the term cultural mediator incorporates. The artist or writer may be a neutral transmitter, a dedicated instructor, a conscious advocate, an unconscious exponent or an autonomous inventor of whatever message is being transmitted by way of visual or verbal artefacts. In reality, these roles w

National Performance: Representing Quebec from Expo 67 to Celine Dion (Cultural Spaces)

National Performance: Representing Quebec from Expo 67 to Celine Dion (Cultural Spaces)

In National Performance, Erin Hurley examines the complex relationship between performance and national identity. How do theatrical performances represent the nation in which they were created? How is Quebecois performance used to define Quebec as a nation and to cultivate a sense of ‘Quebec-ness’ for audiences both within and outside the province? In exploring Expo 67, the critical response to Michel Tremblay’s Les Belles Soeurs, Carbone 14’s image-theatre, Marco Micone’s writing practices, Celine Dion’s popular music, and feminist performance of the 1970s and 80s, Hurley reveals the ways in which certain performances come to be understood as ‘national’ while others are relegated to sub-national or outsider status. Each chapter focuses on

The reach of MTV has proven long and profitable. In this book, Jack Banks examines the historical development of music video as a commodity and analyzes the existing structures within which music video is produced, distributed, and exhibited on its premier music channel, MTV.Who controls MTV?
