Articulating the Global and the Local by Ann Cvetkovich

Book Description

This book explores how discourses of the local, the particular, the everyday, and the situated are being transformed by new discourses of globalization and transnationalism, as used both by government and business and in critical academic discourse. Unlike other studies that have focused on the politics and economics of globalization, Articulating the Global and the Local highlights the importance of culture and provides models for a cultural studies that addresses globalization and the dialectic of local and global forces.Arguing for the inseparability of global and local analysis, the book demonstrates how global forces enter into local situations and how in turn global relations are articulated through local events, identities, and cultures. It includes studies of a wide range of cultural forms: sports, poetry, pedagogy, ecology, dance, cities, and democracy. Articulating the Global and the Local makes the ambitious claim that the category of the local transforms the debate about globalization by redefining what counts as global culture. Central to the essays are the new global and translocal cultures and identities created by the diasporic processes of colonialism and decolonization. The essays explore a variety of local, national, and transnational contexts with particular attention to race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality as categories that force us to rethink globalization itself.

Political Emotions by Ann Cvetkovich Political Emotions, Hardback (April 2010)

Explores the contributions that the study of discourses, rhetoric, and framing of emotion make to understanding the public sphere, civil society and the political realm. This title examines why some sentiments are valued in public communication while others are judged irrelevant, and considers how sentiments mobilize political trajectories.

Archive of Feelings by Ann Cvetkovich Archive of Feelings, Paperback (March 2003)

Argues for the importance of recognizing - and archiving - accounts of trauma that belong as much to the ordinary and everyday as to the domain of catastrophe. This title contends that the field of trauma studies, limited by too strict a division between the public and the private, has overlooked the experiences of women and queers.
