Product Overview

Cultural Rights combines the critical approaches of both sociology and cultural studies to provide an innovative interpretation of contemporary culture. While the books theoretical origins lie in Walter Benjamins groundbreaking thesis about the effects of mechanical reproduction, Celia Lury takes his analysis one step further in her examination of the near obsolete concepts of originality and authenticity in postmodern culture, where reproduction and simulation blur the border between what is real and what is fabricated. Celia Lury establishes a clear framework of analysis by comparing a range of cultural rights through copyright, authorship and originality with those defined by trademark, branding and simulation. She provides concise and accessible histories of three major cultural technologies--print, broadcasting and information technology--and the presentation of research into the contemporary culture industry. She also explores the gendered dimensions of this transformation by looking at the significance of the category of women in the process of cultural reproduction. *Author: Lury, Celia *Series Title: Routledge Reference *Binding Type: Hardcover *Number of Pages: 256 *Publication Date: 1993/06/25 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.50 x 8.50 x 0.69 inches
