Over the past few decades, the public obsession with celebrity has exploded. There has also been a huge growth in the number of college and university courses and degrees on celebrity studies and celebrity journalism. Ellis Cashmore's Celebrity/Culture was among the first textbooks to address this fascination, and remains the most comprehensive work of its kind. It explored the intriguing issue of celebrity culture: its origins, its meaning and its global influence. This fully-updated and rewritten second edition investigates issues in celebrity culture from the paparazzi to politics, from voyeurism to self-perfection. Cashmore presents engaging case studies to analyse how social media has changed the nature of celebrity culture, and explore how we consume celebrity in today's society. His argument is driven by research, rather than invective. This new edition also contains pullout quotes, abundant links and chapter summaries for ease of comprehension and teaching. Cashmore considers in detail the evolution, development and impact of celebrity culture in the public eye. This book will appeal to a wide undergraduate audience throughout the social sciences and humanities, in sociology, history, psychology and media studies.

Analysieren statt vertuschen Menschen, die gezielt aus Fehlern lernen, anstatt sie zu vertuschen oder anderen in die Schuhe zu schieben, nennt Matthew Syed Black-Box-Denker. Dazu sind jedoch nur wenige in der Lage. Auch in vielen Unternehmen geht man mit Misserfolgen nicht offen und ohne Schuldzuweisungen um. Syed bietet aufschlussreiche Analysen für dieses Verhalten. Zu welchen Erfolgen hingegen ein offensiver Umgang mit Fehlern führen kann, zeigt Syed anhand konkreter Beispiele, aus der Welt des Sports oder von erfolgreichen Unternehmen wie Google, Pixar oder Dropbox.

Appropriate for both fundamental and advanced levels, the authors ground their commentary on actor training on the process of personalization and the innovative approaches to voice and movement training. They define the personalization process as one in which the actor discovers and explores in the self, characteristics, qualities, attitudes, and experiences that are legitimate dimensions of the role being created. Part I transitions from essential ingredients used in creating a role, such as focusing and speaking, to guidelines for auditioning and rehearsing, including role analysis. The discussions of basic acting principles are supported by skills-building exercises. Part II explores historical performance styles and shows how basic stylistic elements can be freshly adapted for modern audiences. Thus, in Part II, the authors center their discussions of voice, movement, character, and emotion around theatrical styles prevalent during certain historical periods and around sound acting theories gleaned from a wide range of acting traditions. Each chapter in this part ends with a helpful checklist that summarizes voice, movement, gesture, and other elements common to the era discussed.

»Wir werden geboren, ohne eine Wahl zu haben. Müssen wir deswegen auf gleiche Art sterben?« »Null Grad Kelvin« ist DeLillos klügster, humorvollster und bewegendster Roman seit Jahren, eine große Vater-Sohn-Geschichte, eine Meditation über den Tod und die Ewigkeit und eine Liebeserklärung an das Leben. Ross Lockhart ist ein Milliardär in den Sechzigern mit einer viel jüngeren Frau, Artis Martineau, die schwer krank ist. Er ist Großinvestor eines geheimen, im Verborgenen agierenden Unternehmens, das den Tod ausschalten will. Das Businessmodell: Menschliche Körper werden so lange konserviert, bis Medizin und Technik so weit sind, dass der Mensch ein Leben ohne Krankheiten und zeitliche Begrenzungen führen kann. Als Artis plant, ihren Körper aufzugeben, reist Ross’ Sohn Jeffrey an, um Abschied von seiner Stiefmutter zu nehmen, auf unbestimmte Zeit. »Wir werden geboren, ohne eine Wahl zu haben. Müssen wir deswegen auf gleiche Art sterben? Macht es den Menschen nicht gerade aus, dass er sich weigern kann, sein Schicksal zu akzeptieren?« Diese Fragen treiben Ross um, der mit aller Macht in eine andere Dimension menschlichen Lebens vorstoßen möchte. Sein Sohn hingegen verteidigt leidenschaftlich die Ansicht, dass es des Menschen Bestimmung ist, im Hier und Jetzt zu leben. »Null Grad Kelvin« ist ein großer Wurf, ein brillanter Roman, der an den Kern unserer Existenz rührt.
