Uncertain vision : Birt, Dyke and the reinvention of the BBC by Georgina Born( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2013 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Based on the most extensive independent research ever conducted inside the BBC, during which Georgina Born was allowed unprecedented access to all ranks of the organisation, Uncertain Vision concentrates on the corporation during the later 1990s, the last years of the regime of the former director-general John Birt. Blending reportage and cultural history, it offers both a panorama of the BBC's history and an intimate portrait of the people that make it up - producers, directors, editors, accountants, and managers."--BOOK JACKET

Interdisciplinarity : reconfigurations of the social and natural sciences by Andrew Barry( Book )

9 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The idea that research should become more interdisciplinary has become commonplace. According to influential commentators, the unprecedented complexity of problems such as climate change or the social implications of biomedicine demand interdisciplinary efforts integrating both the social and natural sciences. In this context, the question of whether a given knowledge practice is too disciplinary, or interdisciplinary, or not disciplinary enough has become an issue for governments, research policy makers and funding agencies. Interdisciplinarity, in short, has emerged as a key political pre
Improvisation and social aesthetics( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 44 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addressing a wide range of improvised art and music forms-from jazz and cinema to dance and literature-this volume's contributors locate improvisation as a key site of mediation between the social and the aesthetic. As a catalyst for social experiment and political practice, improvisation aids in the creation, contestation, and codification of social realities and identities. Among other topics, the contributors discuss the social aesthetics of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, the Feminist Improvising Group, and contemporary Malian music, as well as the virtual sociality of interactive computer music, the significance of "uncreative" improvisation, responses to French New Wave cinema, and the work of figures ranging from bell hooks and Billy Strayhorn to Kenneth Goldsmith. Across its diverse chapters, Improvisation and Social Aesthetics argues that ensemble improvisation is not inherently egalitarian or emancipatory, but offers a potential site for the cultivation of new forms of social relations. It sets out a new conceptualization of the aesthetic as immanently social and political, proposing a new paradigm of improvisation studies that will have reverberations throughout the humanities

From reithian ethic to managerial discourse : odgovornost in nadzor v BBC by Georgina Born( )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper outlines the rise during the 1990s of numerous audit and accountability processes within the BBC. It draws on an ethnographic study of the BBC carried out in the later 1990s, which generated an analysis of the internal impact of these changes on the corporation. The paper frames this development within the larger political and governmental contexts to which it was a response. At the same time it notes the absence in this period of significant progress on the part of the BBC in reforming its governance arrangements, a source of continuing criticism of the corporation, and one cause of the voracious growth of auditing. The analysis stresses the visible performance of accountability as an attempted means of strengthening the BBC's legitimation. It is argued that the processes brought a kind of institutionalised reflexivity to the corporation. At the same time audit and accountability had certain deleterious effects, stoking the growth of tiers of new management, which became an onerous burden on the production arms of the BBC and eroded their creative capacities. The paper therefore questions the utility of the kind and the degree of accountability and audit processes to which the BBC has been subject. It points to an irony: while the implementation of these policies responded to governmental pressures, the BBC's elaborate performance of accountability and audit has done little to defend it against further encroachment by government in the form of accelerating reviews of its services and delivery
