This is the first book to introduce comprehensively cultural approaches to everyday life. It is a lively, accessible book that prompts its readers to take a fresh, critical look at the familiar yet strangely intriguing terrain of daily life in modern, industrialized societies. The book introduces the student of cultural studies to a range of key theoretical concepts through simple, cogent explanations illustrated with a variety of engaging examples, from graffiti, bodybuilding, and fashion to analysis of cultures of the city, the suburb, and the domestic home and daily practices like eating, shopping, and getting around.

Book Description Bloomsbury Publishing PLC, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. New.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Interpreting Everyday Culture is the first book comprehensively to introduce first and second year University students to cultural studies approaches to everyday life. It is a lively, accessible textbook that prompts its readers to take a fresh, critical look at the familiar yet strangely intriguing terrain of daily life in modern, industrialized societies. The book introduces the student of cultural studies to a range of key theoretical concepts in the discipline through simple, cogent explanations illustrated with a variety of engaging examples. These range from discussions of graffiti, bodybuilding and fashion to analysis of cultures of the city, the suburb, and the domestic home and daily practices like eating, shopping, and getting around. The book raises a series of thought-provoking questions, including: * How do we make meaning and find pleasure through the everyday preparation and consumption of food? * What is lifestyle, exactly, and when and why was it invented? * How are our personal identities tied up with our work activities and environments? * How do quotidian technologies such as the telephone shape our daily lives? * How does commodity culture impact on our understanding of who we are and how should we understand the complex relationships between our selves and the products we consume? Contemporary Culture and Everyday Life is written with the level of its readership specifically in mind. Emphasis is on clarity and conciseness of explanations; as many relevant, illustrative examples as possible; and regular questions and exercises to stimulate students to actively apply the theory to their own experience.
