Download Miscommunications PDF by Timothy Barker Full Free and published by Bloomsbury Publishing USA. This book was released on 2021-01-14 with total page 344 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What happens when communication breaks down? Is it the condition for mistakes and errors that is characteristic of digital culture? And if mistakes and errors have a certain power, what stands behind it? To address these questions, this collection assembles a range of cutting-edge philosophical, socio-political, art historical and media theoretical inquiries that address contemporary culture as a terrain of miscommunication. If the period since the industrial revolution can be thought of as marked by the realisation of the possibilities for global communication, in terms of the telephone, telegraph, television, and finally the internet, Miscommunications shows that to think about the contemporary historical moment, a new history and theory of these devices needs to be written, one which illustrates the emergence of the current cultures of miscommunication and the powers of the false. The essays in the book chart the new conditions for discourse in the 21st century and collectively show how studies of communication can be refigured when we focus on the capacity for errors, accidents, mistakes, malfunctions and both intentional and non-intentional miscommunications.

Book excerpt: Best known for having declared the death of God, Nietzsche was a thinker thoroughly absorbed in the Christian tradition in which he was born and raised. Yet while the atheist Nietzsche is well known, the pious Nietzsche is seldom recognized and rarely understood. Redeeming Nietzsche examines the residual theologian in the most vociferous of atheists. Giles Fraser demonstrates that although Nietzsche rejected God, he remained obsessed with the question of human salvation. Examining his accounts of art, truth, morality and eternity, Nietzsche's thought is revealed to be

This book offers both scholars and fans alike new insight into the work of the best-known American horror writer of the first half of the 20th century. As critic S. T. Joshi states: "Anderson's thorough familiarity with Lovecraft's texts (essays and letters, as well as stories), and with the best scholarship on Lovecraft, is evident on every page; and the fluidity with which he weaves together critical approaches into a unified commentary is enviable." Complete with chronology and bibliography.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Youth Fantasies is a collection of studies conducted in cross-cultural collaboration over the past ten years that theorizes 'youth fantasy'; as manifested through the media of TV, film, and computer games. Unlike other media studies and education books, the authors employ both Lacanian and Kleinian psychoanalytic concepts to attempt to make sense of teen culture and the influence of mass media. The collection includes case studies of X-Files fans, the influence of computer games and the 'Lara Croft' phenomenon, and the reception of Western television by Tanzanian youth. The authors see this book as a much needed reconciliation between cultural studies and Lacanian psychoanalysis, and attempt to highlight why Lacan is important to note when exploring youth fantasy and interest in the media, especially in shows like X-Files .

Book excerpt: Furnace is a fantasy/horror adventure in which a wealthy man tries to find out the truth about his daughter's death, an investigation considered hopeless by the authorities who consider it a case of human spontaneous combustion or HSC. When a real psychic is included in the Probe team, they uncover an insidious plot by a group of malicious adversaries, people who have been perpetrating the fraud in a never-ending, deadly war against mankind for thousands of years. The horrors uncovered and the lengths to which these fiends will go to preserve themselves and their murderous mission carry those who would end the travesty into realms of pure terror. When the truth is finally revealed, Probe is compelled to face an erroneously documented myth, a powerful demon who will stop at nothing to get revenge for a trauma inflicted against him in ages past.

Download Science Fiction Film, Television, and Adaptation PDF by Jay Telotte Full Free and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2011-08-02 with total page 243 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: While film and television seem to be closely allied screen media, our feature films and television series have seldom been successfully adapted across those screens. In fact, rather than functioning as portals, those allied media often seem, quite literally, screens that filter out something that made the source work so popular in its original form. Differences in budget, running times, cast, viewing habits, screen size and shape all come into play, and this volume’s aim is to track a number of popular texts in the course of their adaptive journeys across the screens in order to sketch the workings of that cross-media adaptation. For its specific examples, the volume draws on a single genre—science fiction—not only because it is one of the most popular today in either film or television, but also because it is arguably the most self-conscious of contemporary genres, and thus one that most obviously frames the terms of these technological adaptations. The essays included here mine that reflexive character, in both highly successful and in failed efforts at cross-media adaption, to help us understand what film and television achieve in screening science fiction, and to reveal some of the key issues involved in all of our efforts to navigate the various screens that have become part of contemporary culture.

Download The Fantastic in Religious Narrative from Exodus to Elisha PDF by Laura Feldt Full Free and published by Routledge. This book was released on 2014-10-14 with total page 304 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The Fantastic in Religious Narrative from Exodus to Elisha argues that perspectives drawn from literary-critical theories of the fantastic and fantasy are apt to explore Hebrew Bible religious narratives. The book focuses on the narratives' marvels, monsters, and magic, rather than whether or not the stories depict historical events. The Exodus narrative (Ex 1-18) and a selection of additional Hebrew Bible narratives (Num 11-14, Judg 6-8, 1 Kings 17-19, 2 Kings 4-7) are analysed from a fantasy-theoretical perspective. The 'fantasy perspective' helps to make sense of elements of these narratives that - although prominently featured in the stories - have previously often been explained by being explained away. These case studies can illuminate Hebrew Bible religion and offer wider perspectives on religious narrative generally. In light of the fantasy-theoretical approach, these Hebrew Bible stories - with the Exodus narrative at the centre - read not as foundational stories, affirming triumphantly and unambiguously the bond between the deity, his people, and their territory, but rather as texts that harbour and even actively encourage ambiguity and uncertainty, not necessarily prompting belief, orientation, and a sense of meaningfulness, but also open-ended reflection and doubt. The case studies suggest that other religious narratives, both in and beyond the Judaic tradition, may also be amenable to interpretation in these terms, thus questioning a dominant trend in myth studies. The results of the analyses lead to a discussion of the role of ambiguity, uncertainty, and transformation in religious narrative in broader perspective, and to a questioning of the emphasis in the study of religion on the capacity of religious narrative for founding and maintaining institutions, orienting identity, and defending order over disorder. The book suggests the wider importance of incorporating destabilisation, disorientation, and ambiguity more strongly into theories of what religious narrative is and does.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Is it ok for Christians to indulge in fantasy and horror? Most Christians seem to believe there is nothing wrong with these genres, that they're merely "entertaining." But one man's experience with this particular style of writing, first as a consumer and literary critic and then as an editor, proved to him that these genres are not as harmless as they may appear. Far from it, in fact. This book details Benjamin Szumskyj's decade-long experience in the genres of fantasy and horror fiction. Reflecting on his interactions with others, what he read and researched, in addition to what he edited and wrote, the author exposes the significant and even alarming inconsistencies of these genres with that of a professed follower of Jesus Christ. Szumskyj contends that such works are not merely "entertainment" but are founded on and promote ideologies and worldviews wholly contrary to the Scriptures, and that believers need to be more discerning of what fiction they read, particularly those promoted as being "Christian." This new edition, formerly published as The Pilgrim's Digress: Why Christians Should Avoid the Fantasy and Horror Genres, includes new material and revisions in light of further readings and reflections by the author.

Download Political Myth PDF by Roland Boer Full Free and published by Duke University Press. This book was released on 2009-03-04 with total page 266 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In this provocative and necessary work, Roland Boer, a leading biblical scholar and cultural theorist, develops a political myth for the Left: a powerful narrative to be harnessed in support of progressive policy. Boer focuses on foundational stories in the Hexateuch, the first six books of the Bible, from Genesis through Joshua. He contends that the “primal story” that runs from Creation, through the Exodus, and to the Promised Land is a complex political myth, one that has been appropriated recently by the Right to advance reactionary political agendas. To reclaim it in support of progressive political ends, Boer maintains, it is necessary to understand the dynamics of political myth. Boer elaborates a theory of political myth in dialogue with Ernst Bloch, Theodor Adorno, Alain Badiou, Jacques Lacan, and Slavoj Žižek. Through close readings of well-known biblical stories he then scrutinizes the nature of political myth in light of feminism, psychoanalysis, and Marxism. Turning to contemporary politics, he examines the statements of prominent American and Australian politicians to show how the stories of Creation, conquest, Paradise, and the Promised Land have been distorted into a fantasy of Israel as a perpetual state in the making and a land in need of protection. Boer explains how this fantasy of Israel shapes U.S. and Australian foreign and domestic policies, and he highlights the links between it and the fantasy of unfettered global capitalism. Contending that political myths have repressed dimensions which if exposed undermine the myths’ authority, Boer urges the Left to expose the weakness in the Right’s mythos. He suggests that the Left make clear what the world would look like were the dream of unconstrained capitalism to be realized.
