An ecocritical reading

corporate identity on the resources within its care. For the Tan y Coed woodland the new logo has been pasted over the old on the interpretation panels themselves, but in some places that has meant leaving the distinctive shape of the Forestry Commission boards with the associated old logo still in place. In other places on this site, the headboard has been removed altogether which removes the logo and disrupts the distinctive shape, as well as giving the board a vandalised appearance. It is evident that imposing a brand image on the countryside is far from simple and

though the film was shown on television later in Canada. Stone suspected dirty work at play. The lobbying of HBO’s corporate owners, Time Warner, probably by Cuban exile groups in Miami and quite possibly also by the White House, were among Stone’s suspicions.4 The backdrop to this controversy was, after all, the launch by President Bush in March 2003 of full-​scale military operations in Iraq backed up by the president’s stated post-​9/​11 ideological conviction that everyone was either ‘with us or with the terrorists’.5 The film’s cancellation captured the mood of

themes, from meaning, taste and identity, through social division, cohesion and the dynamics of economic and political life, to the various social worlds (‘music worlds’ as I call them) which form around different clusters of musical interactivity. Underlying all of this, however, is a relational conception of both social life and music. There are several competing versions of ‘relational sociology’ in the literature (Depelteau and Powell 2013), with the perspectives of Born (e.g. 2010a) and Bourdieu (1984, 1993) proving particularly influential within music sociology

Screening capital and culture in Airbag and Smoking Room

subsidiary of an American multinational company that imposes its own corporate culture by forcing its workers to smoke outside. Seen as a significant cultural marker associated with Spanish national identity, one especially combative worker begins to circulate a petition and accumulate signatures requesting an abandoned storage room be transformed into a sala de fumar .

Introduction On 11 September 2001, two hijacked aircraft were flown into the twin towers of the World Trade Center, a third into the US Department of Defence’s Pentagon building while a fourth, seemingly aiming for the Capitol in Washington, crashed in rural Pennsylvania. Self-evidently, as commentators such as Noam Chomsky have argued, this was a massive symbolic attack on the Western world – most specifically the military-industrial complex of American corporate capitalism.1 But while the sheer ambition of Al-Qaeda’s assault was entirely without precedent, the

Memories of cinema-going in the ‘Golden Age’ of Hollywood

research into the memory narratives of a particular local city press, the study argues that personal memory of cinema is socially constructed by its context to create certain culturally sanctioned discourses, in this case figured around age, community, and city identity. If the last two chapters raised issues of history and memory through particular historical and commemorative texts and events in the 1920s

of propaganda, all media systems will show many examples of different kinds of promotionalism, sometimes involving the activities of government and corporate PR agencies ‘placing’ their accounts in ostensibly journalistic material. To see this as confirming the ‘model’ would simply be impressionistic, without firm criteria for scale and intensity. Corner (2003) develops a more comprehensive discussion of the model’s limitations as a framework for research and argument, and I have looked further at the question of deceit in politics, in Corner (2010a).
