My thesis seeks to examine the representation of Central Asia in the work of British travel writers from Robert Byron in 1937 to Philip Glazebrook, Geoffrey Moorhouse and Col in Thubron, who have been writing about Central Asia since the 1990's. The introduction explores the ways Central Asia has been represented over time and how this is referenced by the writers in my study, who create an epistemology of travel as they seek to understand and represent Central Asia. In Chapter 1 the history of Central Asia, the conceptualisation of the area and how the writers I am studying engage with this is explored. Chapter 2 analyses the work of Robert Byron tracing the development of his use of a frag...

  • Publisher: Routledge

From the perennially young, precocious figure of 'little orphan Annie' to the physical and vocal ageing of the eighteenth-century castrato, interlinked cultural constructions of age and gender are central to the historical and contemporary depiction of creative activity and its audiences.

Good Vibrations

Good Vibrations brings together scholars with a variety of expertise, from music to cultural studies to literature, to assess the full extent of the contributions to popular culture and popular music of one the most successful and influential pop bands of the twentieth century. The book covers the full fifty-year history of the Beach Boys’ music, from essays on some of the group’s best-known music—such as their hit single “Good Vibrations” —to their mythical unfinished masterpiece, Smile. Throughout, the book places special focus on the individual whose creative vision brought the whole enterprise to life, Brian Wilson, advancing our understanding of his gifts as a songwriter, arranger, and producer. The book joins a growing body of literature on the popular music of the 1960s, in general, and on Brian Wilson and the Beach Boys in particular. But Good Vibrations extends the investigation further and deeper than it has gone before, not only offering new understanding and insights into individual songs and albums, but also providing close examination of compositional techniques and reflections on the group’s place in American popular culture.
