Mapping desire : geographies of sexualities by David Bell( Book )
21 editions published between 1994 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 578 libraries worldwide
This is the first book to explore sexualities from a geographical perspective. The nature of place and notions of space are of increasing centrality to cultural and social theory. Mapping Desire presents the rich and diverse world of contemporary sexuality, exploring how the heterosexual body has been appropriated and resisted on the individual, community and city scales. The geographies presented here range across Europe, America, Australasia, Africa, the Pacific and the imaginary, cutting across city and country and analysing the positions of gay men, lesbians, bisexuals and heterosexuals. The contributors ring different interests and approaches to bear on theoretical and empirical material from a wide range of sources. The book is divided into four sections: cartographies/identities; sexualised spaces: global/local; sexualised spaces: local/global; sites of resistance. Each section is separately introduced. Beyond the bibliography, an annotated guide to further reading is also provided to help the reader map their own way through the literature
Consuming geographies : we are where we eat by David Bell( Book )
16 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 528 libraries worldwide
"This book aims to ground theoretical debates about identity politics and issues of consumption through an exploration of one of the most universal and mundane features of everyday life. Using the example of food to demonstrate the importance of space and place in identity formation, this book contributes a geographical perspective to cultural studies work in this field." "This book considers geographies of food consumption through spatial scales, moving from the body up to the global. It focuses on the social and cultural meanings of food consumption, including material on shopping, cooking and eating; food rituals and etiquettes; food technology and the food media (TV and radio cookery programmes, food magazines, advertising); as well as selected production practices (home growing, for instance). Drawing on literatures from anthropological, sociological and cultural readings of food consumption, as well as empirical material from research into domestic food consumption practices, Bell and Valentine articulate the relationship between food and geography." "By exploring geographies of food consumption, we can begin to unpack the role food plays in constituting place identities."--Jacket

The sexual citizen : queer politics and beyond by David Bell( Book )
9 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 363 libraries worldwide
"The notion of citizenship, with its balancing of rights and responsibilities, has become a dominant way of articulating sexual politics today. In The Sexual Citizen, David Bell and Jon Binnie critically explore the notion of sexual citizenship as a way to think through the ever-changing political, legal, social and cultural landscapes of sexuality." "The book examines sexual citizenship in a number of key sites of contemporary sexual politics (the market, marriage, the military, the city, the family) and focuses on a number of key theoretical debates on sexuality in relation to consumption, space and globalization. Critiquing existing theories of sexuality and citizenship, and drawing on a wide range of theoretical perspectives, The Sexual Citizen addresses both the promises and limitations of using the discourses of citizenship in the context of contemporary sexual politics." "The Sexual Citizen will be of interest to students and academics in lesbian and gay studies, politics, legal studies, sociology, cultural studies and geography."--Jacket
City of quarters : urban villages in the contemporary city by David Bell( Book )
16 editions published between 2004 and 2011 in English and held by 322 libraries worldwide
"In cities throughout the world, there is an increasingly ubiquitous presence of distinct social and spatial areas - urban villages, cultural and ethnic quarters. These spaces are sites where capital and culture intertwine in new ways. City of Quarters brings together some of the most prominent authors writing about urban villages to provide the first systematic and multi-disciplinary overview of this high-profile urban phenomenon. They address key questions such as 'What is the role of urban villages and quarters in the contemporary city?' and 'What are the economic, political, socio-spatial and cultural practices and processes that surround these urban spaces?' Blending conceptual chapters with theoretically directed case studies from all over the world, this book includes issues such as local and regional development strategies, production, consumption, the creative industries, popular culture, identity, lifestyle, and tourism."--Publisher's description

Ordinary lifestyles : popular media, consumption and taste by David Bell( Book )
22 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 285 libraries worldwide
"The contributors show that watching make-over television or cooking from a celebrity chef's book are significant cultural practices, through which we work on our ideas about taste, status and identity. In opening up the complex processes which shape our taste and forge individual and collective identities, lifestyle media demand our serious attention, as well as our viewing, reading and listening pleasure." "Ordinary Lifestyles is essential reading for students in media and cultural studies courses, and for anyone intrigued by the influence of the media on our day-to-day lives."--Jacket

17 editions published between 2003 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 202 libraries worldwide
"This volume examines issues of taste, media and lifestyle from a historical perspective. The contributors seek to show how 'lifestyle' as a concept and as a set of practices has evolved over time, progressively over-writing 'tradition'. Focusing specifically on the 1900s to 1970s the volume provides empirical evidence on key debates in the field from a cross-national perspective between the UK and US. The case studies, including Good Housekeeping and Playboy, explore the continuities and discontinuities between the past and present to provide a better understanding about the representation of lifestyle and its relationship to the self. Analysis of how ideas about lifestyle have been mediated in particular times and places is also provided

"David Bell and Kate Oakley survey the major debates emerging in cultural policy research, adopting an approach based on spatial scale to explore cultural policy in cities, nations and internationally. They contextualise these discussions with an exploration of what both 'culture' and 'policy' mean when they are joined together as cultural policy. Drawing on topical examples and contemporary research, as well as their own experience in both academia and in consultancy, Bell and Oakley urge readers to think critically about the project of cultural policy as it is currently being played out around the world. Cultural Policy is a comprehensive and readable book that provides a lively, up-to-date overview of key debates in cultural policy, making it ideal for students of media and cultural studies, creative and cultural industries, and arts management"--
