              Nation branding--a set of ideas rooted in Western marketing--gained popularity in the post-communist world by promising a quick fix for the identity malaise of transitional societies. Since 1989, almost every country in Central and Eastern Europe has engaged in nation branding in...itiatives of varying scope and sophistication. For the first time, this volume collects in one place studies that examine the practices and discourses of the nation branding undertaken in these countries. In addition to documenting various rebranding initiatives, these studies raise important questions about their political and cultural implications.

              This book focuses on the social and political implications of using location-aware technologies in public spaces. It aims at analyzing not only how our traditional ideas of public space and social interactions are challenged by the use of these technologies, but also how existing... concepts of privacy and sociability determine the design and use of these types of technology. The authors frame the development of location-aware mobile devices within the history of previous media, looking at the way the book, the walkman, and the ipod have also helped individuals manage their interactions with public spaces. The authors also look at the privacy concerns raised with the use of these earlier forms of media, specifically how they challenged the borders between what is considered private and what is public. In the second half of the book, the authors describe the way in which adding location to mobile communication technologies, such as cell phones, urges us to discuss and reframe social issues such as privacy, surveillance, and exclusion, along with the very concept of public space.

              Art Platforms and Cultural Production on the Internet
               

              Art Platforms and Cultural Production on the Internet (Hardback)

              By Goriunova, Olga

              Culture is increasingly co-produced by networked media technologies. Digital cultures thrive on creativity, developing new forces of organization to overcome repetition and reach brilliance. In order to understand the processes that produce culture, Goriunova introduces the conce...pt of the art platform. An art platform is a specific configuration of creative passions, codes, events, individuals, and works that are propelled by cultural currents and maintained through digitally native means. Art platforms can occur in numerous contexts bringing about genuinely new cultural production that, given enough force, come together to sustain an open mechanism while negotiating social, technical, and political modes of power. Amateur and folklore work, aesthetic forms of organization and geeky publics, creativity, freedom, and humour are reinterpreted in the theoretical apparatus offered in this book and tested through case studies derived globally. Software art, digital forms of literature, 8-bit music, 3D art forms, pro-surfers, and networks of geeks are test beds for enquiry into what brings and holds art platforms together. Goriunova provides new means of understanding the development of cultural forms on the Internet, placing the phenomena of participatory and social netowrks in a conceptual and historical perspective, and offering powerful tools for researching cultural phenomena overlooked by other approaches. This book is an invaluable resource for scholars of digital media and cultural studies, and a readership involved in every kind of network culture.

              For three generations of Americans, World War II has been a touchstone for the understanding of conflict and of America's role in global affairs. But if World War II helped shape the perception of war for Americans, American media in turn shape the understanding and memory of Wor...ld War II. Concentrating on key popular films, television series, and digital games from the last two decades, this book explores the critical influence World War II continues to exert on a generation of Americans born over thirty years after the conflict ended. It explains how the war was configured in the media of the wartime generation and how it came to be repurposed by their progeny, the Baby Boomers. In doing so, it identifies the framework underpinning the mediation of World War II memory in the current generation's media and develops a model that provides insight into the strategies of representation that shape the American perspective of war in general.

              Politics, Media and Democracy in Australia: Public and Producer Perceptions of the Political Public Sphere (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              In Australia, as in many comparable democracies, the role of the media in the political process is high on the public agenda. There is a perception of widespread disillusionment with and disengagement from politics amongst voters, and criticism of the media for failing to fulfil ...their democratic responsibilities adequately. This book evaluates public perceptions of the performance of the political media in the context of the declared aims and objectives of media producers. From there the authors present findings for improving the capacity of political media to engage and inform their audiences in ways which enhance the quality and popular legitimacy of the democratic process. These conclusions are of import not only to Australians, but to observers of mediated politics in the UK, the US and other countries where similar debates around the 'crisis of public communication' are on-going.

              This book re-examines the role of the sublime across a range of disparate cultural texts, from architecture and art, to literature, digital technology, and film, detailing a worrying trend towards nostalgia and arguing that, although the sublime has the potential to be the most p...owerful uniting aesthetic force, it currently spreads fear, violence, and retrospection. In exploring contemporary culture, this book touches on the role of architecture to provoke feelings of sublimity, the role of art in the aftermath of destructive events, literature's establishment of the historical moment as a point of sublime transformation and change, and the place of nostalgia and the returning of past practices in digital culture from gaming to popular cinema.
