Hip-hop is one of the most successful forms of global cultural production today. Since its emergence in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but also on social debates around race, class, language, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. One topic that is rarely discussed, however, is the relationship between hip-hop and the environment.

The “big four” American entertainment awards—the Emmy for television, the Grammy for music, the Oscar for film, and the Tony for theater, often referred to by the “EGOT” acronym—have long served as a barometer of mainstream taste cultures in their respective fields. While literature on media awards is not completely absent, its scope has been narrow. Popular press works on the somewhat standardized journalistic narratives surrounding the EGOT, particularly the Oscars. Scholarly literature has largely focused on awards as they pertain to the international art cinema circuit and its attached film festivals, such as the Cannes Film Festival.

Though once the study of popular texts--the everyday people and things of modern culture--was off-limits for the legitimate scholar, today a scholarly investigation of the popular is made by a diverse community of scholars, within and beyond the liberal arts, whose discoveries offer insights, answers, and contributions to the questions at the core of a variety of fields.

Censorship and blind spots: the BBC’s silences

 

The BBC's reputation for impartiality and independence is one of the cornerstones of its value system, which also underpins its self-declared mission to "inform, educate, and entertain". However, these values have constantly been redefined as several forms of censorship and self-censorship have been applied in the context of conflict with political or economic powers. This means that the role and independence of the BBC as a public service needs to be questioned and the grey areas and silences of the BBC from its creation in 1922 to the beginning of its digital era in 1995 need to be the objects of inquiry.

 

Cultural Studies Symposium

Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 24, 2021

Dear Cultural Studies Community,

We regret to inform you that Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium, which is supposed to be held in May 2021, is cancelled due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases all over the world. We, as the Organizing Committee members, believe hosting an online event would not suit the spirit of our symposium which is especially prominent for gathering academics from all the branches of social sciences along with other disciplines in Izmir.

We hope to actualise the event in May 2022 with the expectation of a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases and are looking forward to welcoming you with an exciting topic.

Thank you for your understanding.
Stay safe,

Dr. Funda Civelekoglu
