Divided into three sections, Linda Phyllis Austern collects eighteen, cross-disciplinary essays written by some of the most important names in the field to look at this stimulating topic. The first section focuses on the cultural and scientific ways in which music and the sense of hearing work directly on the mind and body. Part Two investigates how music works on the socially constructed, representational or sexualized body as a means of healing, beautifying and maintaining a balance between the mental and physical. Finally, the book explores the action of music as it is heard and sensed by wider social units, such as the body politic, mass communication, from print to sound recording, and broadcast technologies.

The Bristol-based animation company Aardman is best known for its most famous creations Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep. But despite the quintessentially British aesthetic and tone of its movies, this very British studio continues to enjoy international box office success with movies such as Shaun the Sheep Movie, Flushed Away and Wallace and Gromit: Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Aardman has always been closely linked with one of its key animators, Nick Park, and its stop motion, Plasticine-modelled family films, but it has more recently begun to experiment with modern digital filmmaking effects that either emulate 'Claymation' methods or form a hybrid animation style. This unique volume brings together leading film and animation scholars with children's media/animation professionals to explore the production practices behind Aardman's creativity, its history from its early shorts to contemporary hits, how its films fit within traditions of British animation, social realism and fantasy cinema, the key personalities who have formed its ethos, its representations of 'British-ness' on screen and the implications of traditional animation methods in a digital era.

Television has been the subject of research in politics, culture, education, and economy, but very little has been said so far about its potential for creating new forms of art. Is television capable at all of creating serious art, or is it just a means of amusement and communication? This collection of articles discusses the aesthetic aspect of television, maintaining the claim that television bears its own unique artistic potentials. Examinations of various aspects and features of television in comparison to other forms of art, as well as analyses of specific television programs consolidate this claim. This book includes an introduction by the editor, Ruth Lorand, and articles by scholars from universities situated in different cultural and political settings: Germina Nagat, Alexander Nehamas, David Goldblatt, Eddy Zemach, Kathleen Marie Higgins, Andrew Ballantyne, Eran Guter, Rob van Gerwen, Katya Mandoki, Sally Banes, and Charles Leech.

What does globalization mean for the television audience? Becoming a Global Audience examines concerns of cultural imperialism in relation to the actual experience of television reception in a postcolonial context. The rise of satellite television in India in the context of economic liberalization in 1991 has been marked by the localization of global music television networks like MTV and Channel V. This book argues, however, that this «Indianization» is no cause for celebration. Using in-depth interviews with Indian music television viewers and theoretical approaches drawn from political-economic, cultural, and postcolonial studies, it argues instead that the reception of «Top Ten» shows and nationalistic music videos is part of a profound reordering and appropriation of common sense under the changing social relations of globalization.

Rock: A Canadian Perspective is the first and only rock music text to survey the crucial contributions that Canadian musicians have made. It is also unique in its description of the myriad ways that rock 'n' roll has shaped, and then reshaped, Canada's culture since World War II. Specifically,the text covers the development of rock from its roots in the mid-1940s to its current incarnation in the twenty-first century incorporating a Canadian perspective. Some topics discussed include the use of urban folk music for marketing the 'mosaic' concept of Canadian culture; the place of rock 'n'roll music and culture in narratives of 'Americanization'; and the global success of Canadian 'indie' rock bands in the mid-2000s. In a highly accessible writing style, Rock: A Canadian Perspective engages students with a balance of musical analysis and social context. Students will learn not only how and why rock has changed, but also what rock music sounds like through time. The book is enhanced by rich pedagogy: boxedinserts on significant individuals, recordings, and intriguing topics; well-organized listening charts; and over 70 black and white and colour photographs. This is an ideal text for introductory courses in the history of rock 'n' roll that will encourage Canadian readers to become more criticallyaware listeners of rock music.
