When Polonius, in the second act of Hamlet, announces the theater company as the "best actors in the world, either for tragedy, comedy, history, pastoral, pastoral-comical, historical-pastoral, tragical-historical, tragical-comical-historical-pastoral, scene individable, or poem unlimited," he points to several problems that have pervaded scholarship on poetry and genre.

Mediums of Trash/Trash Mediums (Trash Culture Edited Collection)

Thursday, August 7, 2014 - 4:53am
Trash Culture Journal

"The medium is the message", declared Marshall McLuhan (1967) in his now famous book of the same name. He writes: "Societies have always been shaped more by the nature of the media by which men communicate than by the content of the communication" (2008: 8). Seemingly, the elements of Trash Culture have always prioritised the content over the medium, the supposed vulgarity contained in objects such as comic books rather than the aesthetics of the object itself, and the 'crude' programs on television rather than the television as a medium of communicating trash. The medium itself has therefore been a neglected element of Trash Culture, and in this way the notion of 'trash' must be discussed through lenses of technological and/or cultural determinism.
