Download and read online Bad Feminist in PDF and EPUB 'Pink is my favourite colour. I used to say my favourite colour was black to be cool, but it is pink – all shades of pink. If I have an accessory, it is probably pink. I read Vogue, and I’m not doing it ironically, though it might seem that way. I once live-tweeted the September issue.' In these funny and insightful essays, Roxane Gay takes us through the journey of her evolution as a woman (Sweet Valley High) of colour (The Help) while also taking readers on a ride through culture of the last few years (Girls, Django in Chains) and commenting on the state of feminism today (abortion, Chris Brown). The portrait that emerges is not only one of an incredibly insightful woman continually growing to understand herself and our society, but also one of our culture. Bad Feminist is a sharp, funny and sincere look at the ways in which the culture we consume becomes who we are, and an inspiring call-to-arms of all the ways we still need to do better.

Download and read online Bitch Doktrin in PDF and EPUB "Bitches get stuff done." Tina Fey Klug und provokant, witzig und kompromisslos sind Laurie Pennys herausragende Essays, die sie zu Recht zu einer der wichtigsten und faszinierenden Stimmen des zeitgenössischen Feminismus machen. Vom Schock der Trump-Wahl und den Siegen der extremen Rechten bis zu Cybersexismus und Hate Speech – Penny wirft einen scharfen Blick auf die brennenden Themen unserer Zeit. Denn gerade jetzt, in Zeiten sich häufender Krisen in Europa und Amerika, ist es Verpflichtung, geschlossen hinter der Gleichstellung von Frauen, People of Colour und LGBT zu stehen. Der Kampf gegen Diskriminierung ist kein Nebenschauplatz, sondern Voraussetzung für eine gerechte Gesellschaft. Weit davon entfernt, einen Kampf gegen "die Männer" zu führen, greift Penny den Status quo gezielt an: Es geht ihr um Fairness, Umverteilung von Vermögen, Macht und Einfluss – weitreichende Forderungen, die sie nicht abmildert, indem sie eine rosa Schleife darum bindet. Penny ruft dazu auf, sich nicht von jenen beeindrucken zu lassen, die uns den Mund verbieten und uns zu angepasster Liebenswürdigkeit zwingen wollen – sondern eine Bitch zu sein und die Stimme zu erheben.

Download and read online Celebrity and the Feminist Blockbuster in PDF and EPUB In the first book-length study of celebrity feminism, Anthea Taylor convincingly argues that the most visible feminists in the mediasphere have been authors of bestselling works of non-fiction: feminist ‘blockbusters’. Celebrity and The Feminist Blockbuster explores how the authors of these popular feminist books have shaped the public identity of modern feminism, in some cases over many decades. Maintaining a distinction between women who are famous because of their feminism and those who later add feminism to their ‘brand’, Taylor contends that Western celebrity feminism, as a political mode of public subjectivity, cannot in any simple way be seen as homologous with other forms of stardom. Moving deftly from the 1960s to the present, focusing on how feminist authors have actively worked to manufacture their public personas, she demonstrates that the blockbuster remains crucial to feminist celebrification but is now often augmented with digital media. Advancing celebrity studies by placing the figure of the feminist front and centre, Celebrity and the Feminist Blockbuster is essential reading for all those interested in gender, popular feminism, and the politics of renown.

Download and read online We Only Talk Feminist Here in PDF and EPUB This book explores what it means to ‘only talk feminist here’ in the contemporary neoliberal university. How do feminist academics effect change? How are feminist voices sounded, heard, received, silenced, and masked? We Only Talk Feminist Here offers insight into the complexities, contradictions, and possibilities of ‘talking feminist’; of writing as speaking, problematising notions of voice and agency, of speaking into the silences and the ways in which we fight for and flee to feminist spaces, and of talking back. This book presents new possibilities for framing ‘talking feminist’ differently, by exploring what we say, when we say it, how we say it, and what it means when we do any of these things in terms of our multiple and shifting feminist subjectivities. We Only Talk Feminist Here draws upon interviews and conversations with feminist academics in Australia to demonstrate the performative and discursive moves feminist academics make in order to be heard and effect change to the gendered status quo in Australian higher education.

Download and read online Feminist Theory and Pop Culture in PDF and EPUB Feminist Theory and Pop Culture synthesizes feminist theory with modern portrayals of gender in media culture. This comprehensive and interdisciplinary text includes an introductory chapter written by the editor as well as nine contributor chapters of original content. Included in the text: • Historical illustration of feminist theory • Application of feminist research methods for the study of gender • Feminist theoretical perspectives such as the male gaze, feminist standpoint theory, Black feminist thought, queer theory, masculinity theory, theories of feminist activism and postfeminism • Contributor chapters cover a range of topics from Western perspectives on Belly Dance classes to television shows such as GIRLS, Scandal and Orange is the New Black, as well as chapters which discuss gendered media forms like “chick lit”, comic books and Western perspectives of non-Western culture in film • Feminist theory as represented in the different waves of feminism, including a discussion of a fourth wave • Pedagogical features • Suggestions for further reading on topics covered • Discussion questions for classroom use Feminist Theory and Pop Culture was designed for classroom use and has been written with an eye toward engaging students in discussion. The book’s polished perspective on feminist theory juxtaposes popular culture with theoretical perspectives which have served as a foundation for the study of gender. This interdisciplinary text can serve as a primary or supplemental reading in undergraduate or graduate courses which focus on gender, pop culture, feminist theory or media studies. “This excellent anthology grounds feminism as articulated through four waves and features feminists responding to pop culture, while recognizing that popular culture has responded in complicated ways to feminisms. Contributors proffer lucid and engaging critiques of topics ranging from belly dancing through Fifty Shades of Grey, Scandal and Orange is the New Black. This book is a good read as well as an excellent text to enliven and inform in the classroom.” Dr. Jane Caputi Professor of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies and Communication & Multimedia at Florida Atlantic University “Feminist Theory and Pop Culture is destined to be as popular as the culture it critiques. The text plays up the paradoxes of contemporary feminism and requires its readers to ask difficult questions about how and why the popular bring us pleasure. It is a contemporary collection that captures this moment in feminist time with diverse analyses of women’s representations across an impressive swath of popular culture. Feminist Theory and Pop Culture is the kind of text that makes me want to redesign my pop culture course. Again.” Dr. Ebony A. Utley, Assistant Professor of Communication at California State University-Long Beach, author of Rap and Religion Adrienne Trier-Bieniek, Ph.D. is a professor of sociology at Valencia College in Orlando, Florida.

Download and read online Das Buch der Gef hle in PDF and EPUB Manche Gefühle sind überwältigend, der Schrecken, wenn das Auto ins Schleudern gerät, oder die Euphorie, wenn man sich verliebt hat. Andere sind flüchtiger. Wenn Sie eine Überraschung für einen geliebten Menschen planen, empfinden Sie Vorfreude, aber auch eine leichte Angst. Was, wenn das Geschenk nicht gefällt? Oder: das kurze Behagen, wenn wir im Supermarkt nach einer vertrauten Ware greifen. Und dann gibt es Gefühle, vor denen wir am liebsten davonlaufen würden: die Eifersucht, die einen dazu bringt, die Taschen des Partners zu durchwühlen, oder die Scham, die sich zur Selbstzerfleischung steigern kann. Viele Hirnforscher meinen, dass sich die menschlichen Gefühle auf sechs oder acht Empfindungen reduzieren lassen. Das ist viel zu wenig, meint Tiffany Watt Smith. Und so geht sie weltweit auf Suche. Plötzlich bekommen auch bei uns unbenannte Emotionen einen Namen und eine Geschichte. In Japan etwa gibt es ein eigenes Wort für das Unbehagen, wenn man jemandem zu sehr verpflichtet ist: Oime. Die Aborigines haben 15 Begriffe für Angst. Die Inuit haben ein eigenes Wort für das zappelige Warten auf Besuch: Iktsuarpok. Auch deutsche Begriffe, die inzwischen international verwendet werden, wie Torschlusspanik oder Wanderlust, finden ihren Platz.
