Milton and modernity : politics, masculinity, and Paradise lost by Matthew Jordan( Book )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 284 libraries worldwide
"This book presents a theoretical and historicized reading of the production of the 'autonomous' subject in Milton's prose and in Paradise Lost. It rejects the current orthodoxy that liberal humanism is just a form of domination, and reads Milton's texts as revolutionary. Although Milton participates in the formation of discourses of sexuality, labour and the nature of reason which come to be normative, neither Milton's texts nor modernity more generally can be understood without also accepting the dynamism inherent in the belief in individual freedom."--Jacket

But the new drug is not yet safe for humans. When Bowman's attackers inject him with the experimental serum, they unleash a horrifying transformation. The half-man, half-insect killer escapes from the lab and begins a killing spree by using his razor sharp legs and teeth to rip apart his tormentors. The hideous disease carrying creature must now search for more life-giving blood for a terrifying suprise swarming in the basement"--Container

Discourses of Sobriety : Addiction, Consumption and Recovery Television by Brian Macauley( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
The debut of the documentary-style reality television program Intervention (Benz et al.)in 2005 marked the emergence of a subgenre of reality programs that focuses specifically on addiction and recovery. Previous depictions of addiction on television were largely restricted to individual news items and documentaries, made-for-television movies, "very special episodes", or, at most, as a recurring aspect of a fictional character's backstory; this subgenre, hereafter referred to as "recovery television", represents the first time that multiple ongoing programs work to construct cultural understandings of addiction for television viewers. As a result, Intervention and its genred imitators, including VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew (Buchta et al., 2008) and TLC's My Strange Addiction (Bolicki, Cutlip, Galligani, Tarpinian, & Theeranuntawat, 2011), mark a distinctive shift in the history of the depiction of addiction and alcoholism in the media. For critical/cultural scholars, television is seen as a medium with potentially profound ideological and normative influence. Arguably, television is one of the ways in which we learn about the world, and this pedagogical function must be interrogated when it extends to issues of mental or corporeal health--especially when the issue in question, addiction, is itself contested terrain for contemporary medical science. The recovery television subgenre represents a potentially influential discursive formation which requires further examination. This dissertation is an examination of how the phenomenon of addiction becomes a televisual discursive formation, the subgenre of reality television called "recovery television", and is thus re-constructed by the interactions between text, audience and industry. The precursors to the recovery television subgenre activated the audience's voyeuristic instincts by spectacularizing addiction in The Osbournes (Brooks, Ewing, & Osbourne, 2002), The Anna Nicole Show (Ewing et al., 2002), Being Bobby Brown (Baker-Simmons, Nyanning, Shasid-Deen, Shelley, Tricarico, 2005), and Hey Paula! (Murphy, Sternberg & Whittaker, 2007). When these programs found "evidence" of addiction, this evidence was foregrounded. When the subjects deny their addiction, the programs redirect our attention to the excessive material consumption of the subjects. We also see the "othering" inherent in classed, racialized, and gendered portraits of addiction. Consequently, the industry responded to the success of these early programs by delivering the lived experience of "real" celebrity addiction via the imagery of madness in Breaking Bonaduce (Foy et al., 2005) and Shooting Sizemore (Demyanenko et al., 2007). In these programs, the distorted visuals and erratic behavior of these addicts engage with the ongoing cultural fascination with madness (Foucault, 1965) and also work to "other" their addicted subjects.The production and industrial discourse surrounding Intervention (Benz et al., 2005) positioned the program as "discourse of sobriety," a text with direct relation to reality and a desire to enact social change. Yet, the industry requires standardization, and therefore coercive power is exercised on these subjects to meet these standards. In turn, the standardized logic works as Foucauldian biopower (Foucault, 1978); it teaches the viewer how to live as self-sufficient individuals in neoliberal society. In VH1's Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew (Buchta et al., 2008), Dr. Drew Pinsky, star, co-creator and co-producer of the Celebrity Rehab franchise exercises the power of the "tele-clinical gaze" over his patients. Pinsky's gaze, a hybrid of Foucault's clinical gaze (Foucault, 1973) and the gaze of the television producer, diagnoses his patients utilizing his expert medical knowledge with an eye to transforming this medical treatment into televisual spectacle. Ultimately, the need to transform treatment into a spectacle for consumption compromises the patient's treatment.Finally, the derivative texts of recovery television demonstrate that the reification of addiction into televisual commodity is complete. Addiction is reduced to an easily replicable formula. In this reduction, the concept of addiction becomes almost unrecognizable. Ultimately, the transformation into spectacle has detached the sign from the signified; the image of addiction is now undistinguishable from the other commodities in the society of the spectacle.In a society where consumption is equated with success and happiness, and where vast resources are mobilized to stimulate consumptive appetites, the phenomenon of pathological consumption becomes a source of cultural anxiety. Recovery television programs tap into the collective cultural anxiety about addiction and the thin line between normal and deviant consumption: "The face of madness [that] has haunted the imagination of Western man" (Foucault, 1965, p. 15). Just as madness haunted enlightenment society, now addiction--coded as deviant consumption--haunts contemporary consumer culture

Shaping the Market : CNBC and the Discourses of Financialization by Aaron Heresco( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
This research examines the discursive construction of financialization and financial markets as represented on the cable network CNBC. Following the financial crisis of 2008, discourses of an about finance became legible throughout the social body. From calls for austerity to understandings of the range of social and political possibles, financial markets were an increasingly important cultural force. Financial markets, however, are neither natural nor inevitable, and an analysis of the ways in which these markets and their participants are constituted enlists the Consumer News and Business Channel (CNBC) as a critical site in the cultural circuit of finance capitalism. How CNBC functions as both a financial entity in its own right, as well as a site of discursive production and distribution about finance, positions the network as an important site for the study of financial discourses. A critical discourse analysis of CNBC content highlighted a number of themes regarding market discourses: namely pertaining to ludo-finance, a financial pedagogy, new spatial and temporal social conceptions, and a ritualistic and religious attitude toward financial markets. Thinking through the implications of financial representations will only become more important as the institutions and discourses of finance increasingly structure the cultural, social, and political world

Multilateralism in North East Asia ( Book )
2 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Over the past ten years, multilateralism, defined as a process or framework used by a group of nations to discuss and resolve issues of an international nature, has emerged as a possible means of enhancing regional security and stability in Northeast Asia. This paper will review the historical context of Northeast Asian security, examine the role of China and the future of the Korean peninsula, both major regional security issues, vis-a-vis multilateralism and posit that a multilateral process, if implemented as a complement to existing security arrangements, can be an effective tool to enhance long term stability. Furthermore, the United States Pacific Command (USPACOM) can enhance the likelihood that multilateralism will be successful in the long run through continued execution of regional cooperation initiatives and exploitation of real world events including the Global War on Terrorism and the crisis over North Korea's nuclear weapons program
