Herr Lubitsch Goes to Hollywood

German and American Film after World War I

 

Amsterdam University Press, 2005.

ISBNs 9789053567081

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Ernst Lubitsch, the German film director who left Berlin for Hollywood in 1923, is best remembered for the famous "Lubitsch touch" in such masterpieces as Trouble in Paradise and Ninotchka, featuring Greta Garbo. Kristin Thompson's study focuses on Lubitsch's silent films from the years between 1918 and 1927, tracing the impact this director had on consolidating classical Hollywood filmmaking. She gives a new assessment of the stylistic two-way traffic between the American and the German film industries, after World War I each other's strongest rival in Europe. By 1919, Lubitsch had emerged as the finest proponent of the German studio style: sophisticated, urbane and thoroughly professionalized. He was quick to absorb 'American' innovations and stylistic traits, becoming the unique master of both systems and contributing to the golden ages of the American as well as the German cinema. Utilizing Lubitsch's silent films as a key to two great national cinemas, Thompson's meticulously illustrated and extensively researched book goes beyond an authorial study and breaks new ground in cinema history.

Hitchcock's Motifs

 

Amsterdam University Press, 2005.

ISBNs 9789053567739

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Among the abundant Alfred Hitchcock literature, Hitchcock's Motifs has found a fresh angle. Starting from recurring objects, settings, character-types and events, Michael Walker tracks some forty motifs, themes and clusters across the whole of Hitchcock's oeuvre, including not only all his 52 extant feature films but also representative episodes from his TV series. Connections and deeper inflections that Hitchcock fans may have long sensed or suspected can now be seen for what they are: an intricately spun web of cross-references which gives this unique artist's work the depth, consistency and resonance that justifies Hitchcock's place as probably the best know film director ever. The title, the first book-length study of the subject, can be used as a mini-encyclopaedia of Hitchcock's motifs, but the individual entries also give full attention to the wider social contexts, hidden sources and the sometimes unconscious meanings present in the work and solidly linking it to its time and place.

Hybridity, or the Cultural Logic of Globalization

 

Temple University Press, 2006-06-01.

Título de la serie/colección: Knowledge Unlatched (KU).

ISBNs 9781592131433

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): The intermingling of people and media from different cultures is a communication-based phenomenon known as hybridity. Drawing on original research from Lebanon to Mexico and analyzing the use of the term in cultural and postcolonial studies (as well as the popular and business media), Marwan Kraidy offers readers a history of the idea and a set of prescriptions for its future use. Kraidy analyzes the use of the concept of cultural mixture from the first century A.D. to its present application in the academy and the commercial press. The book's case studies build an argument for understanding the importance of the dynamics of communication, uneven power relationships, and political economy as well as culture, in situations of hybridity. Kraidy suggests a new framework he developed to study cultural mixture—called critical transculturalism—which uses hybridity as its core concept, and provides a practical method for examining how media and communication work in international contexts.

Imagining Global Amsterdam

History, Culture, and Geography in a World City

 

Amsterdam University Press, 2012.

ISBNs 9789089643674

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Imagining Global Amsterdam brings together new essays on the image of Amsterdam as articulated in film, literature, art, and urban discourse, considered within the context of globalization and its impact on urban culture. Subjects include: Amsterdam’s place in global cultural memory; expressions of global consciousness in Amsterdam in the ‘Golden Age’; articulations of Amsterdam as a tolerant, multicultural, and permissive ‘global village’; and globalization’s impact ‘on the ground’ through city branding, the cultural heritage industry, and cultural production in the city. Written by an interdisciplinary team of scholars, and united by a broad humanities approach, this collection forms a multifaceted inquiry into the dynamic relationship between Amsterdam, globalization, and the urban imaginary.

Universitätsverlag Göttingen, 2006.

ISBNs 9783938616536

Colección: Directory of Open Access Books

Resumen (en inglés): Christian Kaspar deals with the causes of the current economic crisis in the media industry and discusses opportunities for media companies to avert this crisis. Two options particularly are considered in more detail: the approaching of media products to individual desires of recipients on the basis of individualized systems on the one hand and the quick and location-independent distribution of contents through the mobile internet on the other. Kaspar makes point of two aims: First, it is examined whether and how far the strategies of individualization and distribution in the mobile internet are - compared with traditional media - able to provide additional benefit for customers. Second, conceptual issues in the context of realization of individual and mobile media products are raised and solutions are presented.
