Focussing on music traditions, these essays explore the policy, ideology and practice of preservation and promotion of East Asian intangible cultural heritage. For the first time, Japan, Korea, China and Taiwan - states that were amongst the first to establish legislation and systems for indigenous traditions - are considered together. Calls to preserve the intangible heritage have recently become louder, not least with increasing UNESCO attention. The imperative to preserve is, throughout the region, cast as a way to counter the perceived loss of cultural diversity caused by globalization, modernization, urbanization and the spread of the mass media. Four chapters - one each on China, Korea, Taiwan and Japan - incorporate a foundational overview of preservation policy and practice of musical intangible cultural heritage at the state level. These chapters are complemented by a set of chapters that explore how the practice of policy has impacted on specific musics, from Confucian ritual through Kam big song to the Okinawan sanshin. Each chapter is based on rich ethnographic data collected through extended fieldwork. The team of international contributors give both insider and outsider perspectives as they both account for, and critique, policy, ideology and practice in East Asian music as intangible cultural heritage.

In dieser spannenden Pionierarbeit werden erstmals Schlüsselkonzepte der aktuellen Gender-Politik und Queer Theorie wie Ironie, Parodie, Camp, Maske/Maskerade, Mimesis/Mimikry, Cyborg, Transsexualität und Dildo wissenschaftlich aufbereitet. Mit Hilfe einer neuen Art der Wissensvermittlung verbindet die Autorin anspruchsvolle sozial- und kulturwissenschaftliche Theorien mit praktischen Beispielen aus den Cultural Studies. Der subversive Charakter queerer Motive wird am Beispiel zeitgenössischer Rock- und Popmusik aufgezeigt und in Beziehung zu klassischen Diskursen der abendländischen Philosophiegeschichte gesetzt.

Fado, often described as 'urban folk music', emerged from the streets of Lisbon in the mid-nineteenth century and went on to become Portugal's 'national' music during the twentieth. It is known for its strong emphasis on loss, memory and nostalgia within its song texts, which often refer to absent people and places. One of the main lyrical themes of fado is the city itself. Fado music has played a significant role in the interlacing of mythology, history, memory and regionalism in Portugal in the second half of the twentieth century. Richard Elliott considers the ways in which fado songs bear witness to the city of Lisbon, in relation to the construction and maintenance of the local. Elliott explores the ways in which fado acts as a cultural product reaffirming local identity via recourse to social memory and an imagined community, while also providing a distinctive cultural export for the dissemination of a 'remembered Portugal' on the global stage.

The recent proliferation of events as a subject of study in its own right has signalled the emergence of a new field – event studies. However, whilst the management-inspired notion of planned events, which strives for conceptual slenderness, may indeed be useful for event managers, the moment we attempt to advance knowledge about events as social, cultural and political phenomena, we realise the extent to which the field is theoretically impoverished. Event studies, it is argued, must transcend overt business-like perspectives in order to grasp events in their complexities. This book challenges the reader to reach beyond the established modes of thinking about events by placing them against a backdrop of much wider, critical discourse. Approaches and Methods in Event Studies emerges as a conceptual and methodological tour de force—comprising the works of scholars of diverse backgrounds coming together to address a range of philosophical, theoretical, and methods-related problems. The areas covered include the concepts of eventification and eventual approaches to events, a mobilities paradigm, rhizomatic events, critical discourse analysis, visual methods, reflexive and ethnographic research into events, and indigenous acumen. Researchers and students engaged in the study of events will draw much inspiration from the contributions and from the volume as a whole.

Terrorismus, so die Grundthese dieses Bandes, ist ein kommunikativer Akt. Die Gewalt ist kein Selbstzweck, sondern soll Botschaften transportieren und maximale Aufmerksamkeit erzielen. Die Beiträge des Bandes untersuchen die kommunikative Verflechtung terroristischer Gewalt mit staatlichem Handeln und der Mediengesellschaft. Analysiert werden Attentate im Russland und Frankreich des 19. ebenso wie der irische und baskische Terrorismus des frühen 20. Jahrhunderts oder die Roten Brigaden und die RAF. Dabei wird deutlich, dass gerade die Kommunikation zwischen Terroristen, Staat und Öffentlichkeit auch Chancen zur Deeskalation bietet.
