In this book of critical writings, Janet Wolff examines issues of exile, memoir, and movement from the perspective of the female stranger. Wolff, born in Great Britain but now living and working in the United States, discusses the positive consequences of women's travel; the use of dance (another form of mobility) as an image of liberation; whether exile or distance provides a better vantage point for cultural criticism than centrality and stability; the place of personal memoir in academic writing; and much more.

This book is about the expanding realm of visual culture: in everything from architecture and art to computer imagery and virtual reality, this is the age of the visual image, and whatever excites and attracts the eye the most is king. Visual Culture is also about visual culture studies, a relatively new academic discipline, or rather range of disciplines, that scholars employ to analyze visual artifacts. Unlike many other texts on the same subject, it places the "visual" in the foreground and is systematic and accessible. The volume provides an overview of the subject that pays attention to the achievements of both traditional and new theory while directing the reader to a large body of literature via references and an extensive bibliography. John Walker and Sarah Chaplin discuss the concepts of "the visual" and of "culture" as well as the field and origins of Visual Culture Studies; coping with theory; models of production and consumption; institutions; pleasure; the canon and concepts of value; visual literacy and poetics; modes of analysis; culture and commerce; and new technologies.

Why do car manufacturers use paisley interiors to sell their products to women, and does it work? Is women's taste really different to men's? Who says so? And does it matter? In this highly original book Penny Sparke uses familiar objects of our everyday environments - furniture, cars and domestic appliances and interiors - to look at how taste has become a gendered issue in our culture. Ever since the industrial revolution, the cluttered interior has been associated with femininity while the minimal forms of modernist architecture have acted as markers of a masculine aesthetic. As Long as It's Pink argues that 'taste' has been a quality assigned to women while 'design' is a man-made construction which has taken aesthetic authority away from women. This in turn has succeeded in trivializing and marginalizing women's material culture. Ranging across histories of domesticity, feminine consumption and home-making, as well as modern design and broader cultural theories, Penny Sparke offers a completely new version of the history of our modern material culture.

Over the past three centuries, London has established itself as one of the world's most inventive fashion capitals. City life and fashion have always been intertwined, but nowhere has this relationship been more excitingly expressed than on the streets of London. Fashioning London looks at the manner in which particular styles of dress became associated with this leading international city, ultimately challenging the dominance of Paris, Milan and New York. From the pleasure gardens and coffee houses of the eighteenth century, through Victorian extremes of poverty and conspicuous pleasure-driven consumption, to the explosions of subcultural taste that define the capital today, Londoners have constantly offered an idiosyncratic reading of fashionability that has profoundly influenced the nature of style elsewhere. Drawing on a range of sources, including paintings, street photography, maps, tourist guides, literature, stage, and press representations, Fashioning London paints a vivid and definitive portrait of London's iconoclastic style.

Challenges cosy representations of the early post-war period, at the same time questioning a received alternative version of the decade as that of the Angry Young Man, rebellious youth and rock and roll. The text re-examines the literary culture of the 1950s, reconsidering lost narratives, and reintroducing popular forms, particularly those addressed to women, into an account of the literature of the decade. It provides insight into the realignment of gender roles in the postwar period, which belies popular assumptions that women quietly left the workplace after the war, that there were no Angry Young Women in the 1950s. The book also offers a re-reading of popular genres for men, and of the canonical texts of the period.
