Description

"New Formations" is a journal of cultural debate, history and theory. It brings new and challenging perspectives to bear on the categories that frame cultural analysis and political action. The journal has covered issues ranging from the seduction of perversity to questions of nationalism and post-colonialism. Contributors open up new zones of enquiry whilst drawing new charts of understanding to explain new formations in contemporary life. "New Formations" brings together in one volume both established and new writers from many walks of critical life. Past contributors have included: Parveen Adams, Nomi Bhabha, Slavoj Zizek, Susan Buck-Morss, Gillian Rose, Jacqueline Rose, Zygmunt Bauman and Christopher Norris. Staged performance is idealized performance. This book explores how that ideal is realized, at specific moments, in particular political circumstances, through different historical memories and desires. Contributors include: Sally Banes, Nicholas Cook, Gill Frith, Lydia Goehr, Karen Lury, John Stokes and Martin Stokes.
