This CS Journal special issue aims at exploring the encounter and intersection between fashion studies and media studies, with particular reference to visual and audiovisual products, e.g. cinema, television, advertising and digital media. Over the past decades, fashion acquired centrality in social and economical dynamics in Western culture for its capability to penetrate and influence both production and identitarian practices. Fashion both fully takes part in artistic processes as an autonomous aesthetic and semantic object (fashion as a medium) and has a pivotal role in crea­tive industry as a provider of fundamental material for the formation of imaginary worlds and characters (fash­ion as a media industry).

Film and media adaptations have frequently projected an alternate cinematic world on screen that re-imagines the past and future. Movies (Blade Runner, The Quiet American), TV shows (Sherlock, Agent Carter), and digital ‘new media’ series—increasingly streamed and ‘binge watched’ on Netflix (House of Cards) and Amazon (The Man in the High Castle)—have been inspired by a variety of fiction novels, short stories, plays, comics, graphic novels, and historical works of nonfiction, memoirs (Bridge of Spies) or documentary (Jazz on a Summer’s Day) cine-essays that mediate and reframe history to portray an alternate worldview which re-imagines the past and anticipates a vision of future events.

The Iron Cage of Work: Cultural Responses to the Institutions of Contemporary Capitalism

In many of his writings, the German sociologist Max Weber condemned the rationality of modern bureaucratic government which, for him, restricted an individual’s freedom by compartmentalizing society. His view of the dangers of the modern state is perhaps best illustrated in The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism where Weber notes that the “iron cage” of rationality extended to work as workers were forced, rather than compelled, to labor. Weber’s observation about the intersection between work and bureaucracy as the “iron cage of capitalism” has endured, in part, because of how thinkers, artists, and workers have continued to view the contemporary work-space.

The European Journal of American Culture (Intellect Ltd) is seeking reviewers for forthcoming issues of the interdisciplinary journal. 

We are particularly interested in expanding the journal's current scope, and are looking to review not only academic texts, but also new fiction, poetry and non-fiction; film and television; photography and art books; and video games. We want the interdisciplinarity of the journal's articles to be matched with an engagment of diverse materials and texts in the reviews.
