9780199273959: Everyday Life: Theories and Practices from Surrealism to the Present

The notion of the everyday is at the heart of modern French cultural and Anglo-American cultural studies. Since the 1960s numerous writers, artists, philosophers, and social theorists have tried to home in on the patterns and rhythms of our daily activities. This book provides a detailed map of this territory, linking the pioneering work of such key figures as Georges Perec and Michel de Certeau, to currents in Surrealism, ethnography, fiction, film, and photography.

About the Author:

Michael Sheringham is Marshal Foch Professor of French Literature at the University of Oxford.

Review:

...embraces cultural as well as literary studies and consistently elucidates the complex formal and theoretical mutations that the concept of everyday life has undergone during the previous century. * Forum For Modern Language Studies, * treats complex material with admirable clarity... evokes a quotidien that is dynamic, creative and mobile... the book pieces itself together, as it were, from the inside, by increments of arguments and insight, never sweeping in judgement and never mandarin in style. * Patrick McGuinness, TLS * ...immensely rich, diverse, and scholarly discussion, the first comprehensive investigation of a concept and practice central to contemporary French culture. * Elza Adamowicz, MLR *

Book Description Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2006. Hardback. Book Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. In the last twenty years the concept of the quotidien, or the everyday, has been prominent in contemporary French culture and in British and American cultural studies. This book provides the first comprehensive analytical survey of the whole field of approaches to the everyday. It offers, firstly, a historical perspective, demonstrating the importance of mainstream and dissident Surrealism; the indispensable contribution, over a 20-year period (1960-80), of four major figures: Henri Lefebvre, Roland Barthes, Michel de Certeau, and Georges Perec; and the recent proliferation of works that investigate everyday experience. Secondly, it establishes the framework of philosophical ideas on which discourses on the everyday depend, but which they characteristically subvert. Thirdly, it comprises searching analyses of works in a variety of genres, including fiction, the essay, poetry, theatre, film, photography, and the visual arts, consistently stressing how explorations of the everyday tend to question.
