Discussion of Hollywood film has dominated much of the contemporary dialogue on ecocriticism and the cinema--until now. With Transnational Ecocinemas, the editors open up the critical debate to look at a larger variety of films from many different countries and cultures. By foregrounding these films with their economic and political contexts, the contributors offer a more comprehensive and nuanced look at the role of place in ecocinema. The essays also interrogate proposed global solutions to environmental issues by presenting an ecocritical perspective on different film cultural considerations from around the globe.

Ecocriticism hat sich mittlerweile als interdisziplinäre Forschungsperspektive weltweit etabliert. Auch im deutschsprachigen Raum zeichnet sich ein wachsendes Interesse ab, bislang fehlt jedoch eine Einführung, die Lehrende und Studierende mit den verschiedenen Ansätzen und Forschungsschwerpunkten des Ecocriticism vertraut macht. Der Band schließt diese Lücke, indem er in die zentralen theoretischen Perspektiven einführt, die spezifischen Ansätze im deutschen Kontext vorstellt und ein weitgefächertes Spektrum für das ökologische Potenzial von Literatur, Film und Kunst in vergleichender Perspektive eröffnet. Ausgewiesene Vertreterinnen und Vertreter aus Amerikanistik, Germanistik, Geschichte, Kunst- und Kulturwissenschaft geben einen repräsentativen Einblick in die einzelnen Forschungsfelder und die jeweils zentralen Texte.

Ecology and Contemporary Nordic Cinemas uses a range of analytical approaches to interrogate how the traditional socio-political rhetoric of national cinema can be rethought through ecosystemic concerns, by exploring a range of Nordic films as national and transnational, regional and local texts--all with significant global implications. By synergizing transnational theories with ecological approaches, the study considers the planetary implications of nation-based cultural production.

Ecomedia: Key Issues is a comprehensive textbook introducing the burgeoning field of ecomedia studies to provide an overview of the interface between environmental issues and the media globally. Linking the world of media production, distribution, and consumption to environmental understandings, the book addresses ecological meanings encoded in media texts, the environmental impacts of media production, and the relationships between media and cultural perceptions of the environment. Each chapter introduces a distinct type of media, addressing it in a theoretical overview before engaging with specific case studies. In this way, the book provides an accessible introduction to each form of media as well as a sophisticated analysis of relevant cases. The book includes contributions from a combination of new voices and well-established media scholars from across the globe who examine the basic concepts and key issues of ecomedia studies. The concepts of "frames," "flow", and "convergence" structure a dynamic collection divided into three parts. The first part addresses traditional visual texts, such as comics, photography, and film. The second part of the book addresses traditional broadcast media, such as radio, and television, and the third part looks at new media, such as advertising, video games, the internet, and digital renderings of scientific data. In its breadth and scope, Ecomedia: Key Issues presents a unique survey of rich scholarship at the confluence of Media Studies and Environmental Studies. The book is written in an engaging and accessible style, with each chapter including case studies, discussion questions and suggestions for further reading.

Masculinity in the Golden Age of Swedish Cinema

Swedish society underwent great changes during the first decades of the 1900s and the new consumption and entertainment culture came under fire. Children and youth—but also women and the working classes—become symbols of the forces breaking down traditional structures and values. These groups were also identified as the principal audience for the new film medium. Hence, during the silent era, film culture interacted with society at large, filling the screen with contradictory images of diverging masculinities and gender/ethnic relations. In fact, film culture became one of the most important arenas where new gender relations could be articulated. This book covers Swedish film culture throughout the 1920s. It is the first in-depth exploration of Swedish silent film culture that goes beyond the small number of canonized films of the “Swedish Golden Age” that have been discussed as “art” for nearly 100 years. The study is based on extensive research and takes all Swedish feature films produced in the 1920s into consideration, together with a large number of source materials that include fan and trade magazines, manuscripts, censorship records, government reports and some 900 film reviews.

Der Band analysiert dokumentarische Formen des Films, die in aktuellen Medienkulturen eine zunehmend wichtigere Rolle spielen und für die Kommunikation in modernen Gesellschaften maßgeblich verantwortlich sind. Durch neue Technologien und veränderte Formen der Produktion, Distribution und Rezeption sowie innovative ästhetische Konzepte kommt es zu einer Ausdifferenzierung der dokumentarischen Praktiken in ihren jeweiligen Medienkulturen, die nicht zuletzt auch das Verständnis dessen verändern, was unter dokumentarischen Filmen jeweils zu verstehen ist. Diese Entwicklungen werfen Fragen auf, auf die Autorinnen und Autoren aus der Medien- und Kulturwissenschaft, der Geschichtswissenschaft, der Kunstwissenschaft und der Soziologie in diesem Band Antworten geben.

Ölkrise, Wasserkonflikte, schwindende Ernährungssicherheit - die Botschaften von knappen Ressourcen häufen sich. Und dies in einer Welt mit wachsender Bevölkerung, zahllosen Armen und stolzen Nationen, die auch ihren Platz an der Sonne fordern. Ihr Recht auf Entwicklung kann man im Zeitalter der Globalisierung nicht bestreiten - und dennoch ist bereits jetzt die Biosphäre überfordert. Die Inder wollen Straßen und die Chinesen mehr Öl: Der Kampf um die knappe Natur wird die Krisen des 21. Jahrhunderts mitbestimmen. Ressourcenkonflikte, große und kleine, sind oft der unsichtbare Faktor hinter Chaos und Gewalt. Wo jedoch der Kuchen immer kleiner, der Hunger immer größer und die Gäste immer zahlreicher werden, da ist es höchste Zeit, nach Wegen einer gerechteren Verteilung von Ressourcen zu suchen. Dieses Buch, verfaßt von Fachleuten des international renommierten Wuppertal Instituts, liefert eine Analyse der Konfliktlagen. Es entwirft überdies Perspektiven einer Politik der Ressourcengerechtigkeit und umreißt die Konturen einer globalen Umwelt- und Wirtschaftspolitik, die gleichermaßen der Natur wie den Menschen verpflichtet ist. Ein wichtiges Informationswerk und ein Kompass für alle, die nach Wegen zu einer zukunftsfähigen Weltgesellschaft suchen.

It is only through certain forms of social use that media become "Media of collective memory". The phenomenon of a "Remembrance film", too (e.g. Das Leben der Anderen, Hotel Ruanda, On connaît la chanson ) only comes about in a plurimedial context with its incorporation into a complex systemic media network that makes it into a remembrance film through various forms of reference. The volume analyses film using the methodology of studies in cultural memory to reveal the functioning of these constellations.
