Film festivals around the world are in the business of making experiences for audiences, elites, industry, professionals, and even future cultural workers. This book tells you why these non-profit organizations work as they do and attract people working for free, while appealing to businesses and policy-makers as cheap means to illuminate the creative city and draw attention to film art. Vogel provides firm evidence for the ‘festival effect’ that shows the festival as an intermediary in cinema value chains and unprecedented systematic sociological analysis of how event culture impacts on cultural workers’ lives. Read this book to find out what resources and institutional pillars ensure that festivalization of capitalism is here to stay, and why she urges us to think critically about publicly displayed benevolence.
This book presents an analysis of the social aspects of Carl Gustav Jung's thought and its followers, the interpretation of the phenomena of contemporary social life (social imagery) from the perspective of the main categories of this thought (archetype, unconscious, collectivity, mass society, mass man). It also contains an attempt of their application for understanding contemporary social and political phenomena (e.g. Brazilian sebastianism, Balkan conflicts, virtual-imagery sphere of communication, figures of imagery in popular culture, and others). The authors examine the relationship between Jung’s and Jungians' (E. Neumann, J. Hillman, J. L. Henderson) conceptions and many accompanying them (e.g. Frankfurt school, Bachelard’s philosophy, American cultural psychoanalysis) and the background of contemporary conceptions of social psychology, sociology, and cultural anthropology.
This volume fundamentally revises our understanding of the development of modern New York, focusing on elite domestic architecture within the contexts of social history, urban planning, architecture, interior design, and adaptive reuse. Featuring new archival research and previously unpublished photographs and architectural plans, contributions from emerging and establishing scholars, art historians and practitioners offer a multi-faceted analysis of major figures such as James B. Duke, Horace Trumbauer, Julian Francis Abele, Robert Venturi, and Richard Kelly, with fresh perspectives on domestic spaces, urban forms, and social reforms that shaped early-twentieth century New York into the modern city we know today.

Are artistic engagements evolving, or attracting more attention? The range of artistic protest actions shows how the globalisation of art is also the globalisation of art politics. Here, based on a multi-site field research, we follow artists from the MENA countries, Latin America, or Africa along their paths of commitment and transnational, voluntary trajectories or exiles. With this global and decentred approach, the different repertoires of engagement appear, in all their dimensions, including professional ones. In the face of political disillusionment, these aesthetic interventions take on new meanings, as artivists seek alternative modes of social transformation and production of shared values.

Volume 1: Interactive, Contrastive, and Cultural Representational Approaches
How do you react to an intercultural situation that you do not understand? There are four options. You wait until it’s over. You adjust your behavior and “do as the natives do.” You blame the other as strange and stupid. Or you start to wonder by thinking about yourself and the other(s). This last option is called a Rich Point. This book provides an overview of research into intercultural communication. It is not a handbook, but offers nine studies that illustrate the reflection process from different scholarly perspectives. The approaches in this volume are the interaction approach, contrastive approach and cultural representational approach.
Volume 2 offers nine additional chapters exemplifying the multilingualism approach and transfer approach including research into intercultural competences. Together, the chapters illustrate the essence of the essentialism and non-essentialism debate regarding diversity and inclusion.
