Die in den beiden Bänden dieses Sammelwerks repräsentierten Beiträge zielen auf Wandlungen und Entwicklungstendenzen der Gegenwartsgesellschaft, die in neueren sozial- und kulturwissenschaftlichen Diskursen zunehmend mit Begriffen wie Inszenierung, Performanz/Performance, Image, Event oder visual culture belegt werden. Unter dem Titel Theatralisierung geht es hier um nicht weniger als um die Behauptung eines charakteristischen Bündels von sozio-kulturellen Formationen und Transformationen, die alle gesellschaftlichen Ordnungsebenen, Bereiche und Daseinsaspekte umfassen. Andererseits gilt es, sozio-kulturellen Tatsachen Rechnung zu tragen, die eher den Gegenbegriff der Enttheatralisierung nahezulegen scheinen. Die hier zugrunde liegende zentrale Leitidee/Leitthese (Theatralisierung) wird im 1. Band vor allem auf die Lebenswelt(en) jedermanns, auf spezielle (Gruppen-)Kulturen sowie auf soziale Felder im Sinne Pierre Bourdieus bezogen: Politik, Sport, Religion, Wissenschaft, Medizin/Psychotherapie, Kunst, Wirtschaft u.s.w. Der 2. Band fokussiert das ‚Super-Theater’ der Massenmedien. Gegenstand der Untersuchung ist zudem das Internet als Raum von Theatralität und als Moment und Faktor von (Medien-)Theatralisierungen.

Essential Scots scrutinizes diverse texts from the Union of Crowns and James VI/I’s Edinburgh-London emigration to the aftermath of George IV’s London-Edinburgh-London journey more than two centuries later, exposing how the “essential” Scot, allegedly possessed of a uniquely durable, influential identity, shaped the literary-cultural narrative imagination from 1603-1832, with implications for the twenty-first century. The essential Scot’s supposed aptitude for personal resistance and recovery were marshaled by Scottish and English writers to formally challenge, accommodate, generate, revise, and mediate between the universalizing and individualizing trajectories of British unionism still negotiated today.

Hinter der bunten und fröhlichen Fassade der spätkapitalistischen Popkultur herrscht eine »Diktatur der Angepassten«. In diesem Essayband räumt Roger Behrens mit der Vorstellung auf, dass »Pop« eine subversive oder dissidente Strategie sei, und zeichnet stattdessen mit einer kritischen Theorie der Popkultur das Bild einer stillstehenden und langweiligen Kultur des Konformismus.

Originating as a radio series in 1933, the Lone Ranger is a cross-media star who has appeared in comic strips, comic books, adult and juvenile novels, feature films and serials, clothing, games, toys, home furnishings, and many other consumer products. In his prime, he rivaled Mickey Mouse as one of the most successfully licensed and merchandised children's properties in the United States, while in more recent decades, the Lone Ranger has struggled to resonate with consumers, leading to efforts to rebrand the property. The Lone Ranger's eighty-year history as a lifestyle brand thus offers a perfect case study of how the fields of licensing, merchandizing, and brand management have operated within shifting industrial and sociohistorical conditions that continue to redefine how the business of entertainment functions. Deciphering how iconic characters gain and retain their status as cultural commodities, Selling the Silver Bullet focuses on the work done by peripheral consumer product and licensing divisions in selectively extending the characters' reach and in cultivating investment in these characters among potential stakeholders. Tracing the Lone Ranger's decades-long career as intellectual property allows Avi Santo to analyze the mechanisms that drive contemporary character licensing and entertainment brand management practices, while at the same time situating the licensing field's development within particular sociohistorical and industrial contexts. He also offers a nuanced assessment of the ways that character licensing firms and consumer product divisions have responded to changing cultural and economic conditions over the past eighty years, which will alter perceptions about the creative and managerial authority these ancillary units wield.

Exiles: Living Missionally in a Post-Christian Culture presents a biblical, Christian worldview for the emergent church--people who are not at home in the traditional church or in the secular world. As exiles of both, they must create their own worldview that integrates their Christian beliefs with the contemporary world. Exiles seeks to integrate all aspects of life and decision-making and to develop the characteristics of a Christian life lived intentionally within emerging (postmodern) culture. It presents a plea for a dynamic, life-affirming, robust Christian faith that can be lived successfully in the post-Christian world of twenty-first century Western society. This book will present a Christian lifestyle that can be lived in non-religious categories and be attractive to not-yet Christians. Such a worldview takes ecology and politics seriously. It offers a positive response to the workplace, the arts, feminism, mystery and worship. Exiles seeks to develop a framework that will allow Christians to live boldly and courageously in a world that no longer values the culture of the church, but does greatly value many of the things the Bible speaks positively about. This book suggests that there us more to being a Christian than meets the eye. It explores the secret, unseen nooks and crannies in the life of a Christian and suggests that faith is about more than church attendance and belief in God. Written in a conversational, easy-to-read style, Exiles is aimed at church leaders, pastors and laypersons and seeks to address complex issues in a simple manner. It includes helpful photographs and diagrams.

Brand New Church? aims to make sense of what 'postmodern' actually looks and feels like in real life, and to ask what this means for the church. Over the past few years, Graeme Fancourt has travelled around the UK and USA consulting with a wide range of church leaders, including Sue Wallace, who founded Visions and Transcendence, Jonny Baker, a member of Grace, and Roy Searle of the Northumbria Community. He writes: "The church that I have encountered is thoughtful, active and confident in the gospel . . . Though holding many different views, these leaders all appear to take seriously the need for the church genuinely to engage (positively or negatively) with what it perceives to be the postmodern condition." The author reveals and explores the diversity of thinking found in local churches, in colleges and universities, and expressed in works of contemporary theology: the approaches of a range of writers, such as D. A. Carson, Peter Rollins, Pete Ward, Tom Wright and Stanley Hauerwas are examined to stimulating effect. The result is a thoroughly vibrant read, which offers a broad understanding of how - in these postmodern times - the church might engage fruitfully in dialogue and mission for the sake of all God's people.

Als 1986 Risikogesellschaft erschien, machte das Ulrich Beck schlagartig berühmt. Der Soziologe wies nicht nur auf die Nebenfolgen der Industriemoderne hin, er betonte zugleich, dass die Welt sich auch dann permanent verändert, wenn wir meinen, einen vorübergehenden Zustand mit Institutionen und Konzepten einfrieren zu können. Mit beispielloser Neugier spürte Beck den Indizien des Wandels nach und öffnete uns mit der Lust an der terminologischen Innovation die Augen für Individualisierung, Globalisierung und die Transformation der Arbeitswelt. Am 1. Januar 2015 verstarb Ulrich Beck überraschend und viel zu früh. Bis zu seinem Tod arbeitete er an einem Buch, das beides ist: Summe und radikale Weiterführung seiner Theorie. Während es früher Fixpunkte gab, an denen wir erkennen konnten, was stabil blieb und was nicht, erleben wir heute eine allumfassende Verwandlung, die uns orientierungslos werden lässt. Die Metamorphose der Welt ist der Versuch, diese Globalisierung des Wandels zu verstehen und hochaktuelle Herausforderungen wie Erderwärmung und Migration auf den Begriff zu bringen.
