Popular stories and promised lands : fan cultures and symbolic pilgrimages by Roger C Aden( )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Popular Stories and Promised Lands enters a conversation about who we are, where we've been, and where we might be going by suggesting that possible answers to those questions can be found in the popular stories we encounter at the movies, on television, in popular magazines, and even on the funny pages."--BOOK JACKET. "Using the numerous stories we encounter every day as resources, we imaginatively experience our own "places that matter." Fans of the comic strip Dilbert visit Nerdvana, the place where common sense reigns. Fans of the television series The X-Files return to the Funhouse each week for a dose of frightening fun. Fans of the weekly magazine Sports Illustrated play in the American Elysian Fields where democratic efforts at balancing work and play are valued. Fans of the movie Field of Dreams work as altruistic producers in an alternative garden spot."--BOOK JACKET. "Grounded in the author's own experience as a culturally displaced American, and reinforced by the voices of approximately 200 additional fans of the four popular stories, this book makes a compelling case for understanding the alleged vast waste-land of popular culture as a fertile site of individually and communally created "sacred places." Through popular stories, fans can imaginatively experience symbolic pilgrimages to new promised lands that offer a sense of centeredness, spirituality, and creativity."--BOOK JACKET
Upon the ruins of liberty : slavery, the President's House at Independence National Historical Park, and public memory by Roger C Aden( )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in English and held by 484 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 2002 revelation that George Washington kept slaves in his executive mansion at Philadelphia's Independence National Historical Park in the 1790s prompted an eight-year controversy about the role of slavery in America's commemorative landscape. When the President's House installation opened in 2010, it became the first federal property to feature a slave memorial. In Upon the Ruins of Liberty, Roger Aden offers a compelling account that explores the development of this important historic site and how history, space, and public memory intersected with contemporary racial

Childhood memory spaces : how enduring memories of childhood places shape our lives by Roger C Aden( Book )

13 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Childhood Memory Spaces: How Enduring Memories of Childhood Places Shape Our Lives explores the places adults remember from their childhood. More specifically, it examines the questions "what kinds of places do we remember?" and "why do they linger in our memories?". The answers emerge from a variety of sources, including scholarship in cognitive science, environmental psychology, geography, communication, etc., but they are illustrated primarily through the over 100 stories told by adults who still vividly recall the places where key facets of their identity developed. Those stories reveal both that the answers are significantly more complex than one academic perspective can explain and that profoundly personal narratives can highlight their complexity in ways that scientific and social scientific research alone cannot. This book meets a need to integrate related, yet independent, lines of research in the natural and social sciences--doing so with a decidedly humanistic touch. Specifically, the book offers an interdisciplinary exploration of how place, memory, and identity intersect as we craft our life stories while seeking what Kenneth Burke called equipment for living with the challenges that life presents along the way. Weaving theory with personal narratives, Childhood Memory Spaces underscores a fundamental relationship: the stories of our lives are entwined with place, and we understand these stories (and ourselves) by reflecting upon the ways in which these memorable places have shaped, and continue to shape, our lives

US public memory, rhetoric, and the National Mall( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

US Public Memory. Rhetoric, and the -National Mull examines "the nation's front yard," understanding the National Mall as both a public face the United States presents to the world and as a site where its less apparent moral story is told. This book provides a uniquely thorough, interdisciplinary, and integrated examination of how the National Mall shares a moral story of the United States and, in so doing, reveals the soul of the nation. The contributors explore eleven memorials, monuments, and museums found across the Mall, considering how each rhetorically remembers a key element of the nation's past, what each rhetorical memory tells us about the nation's soul, and how each site must be understood in relation to the commemorative landscape of the Mall.
