About the Birmingham CCCS.

About the Birmingham CCCS

Two years later, Hoggart had founded the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies. Under the directorship of first Hoggart and then Stuart Hall and Richard Johnson, and with the commitment of Michael Green throughout, the Centre operated at the intersections of literary criticism, sociology, history and anthropology. Rather than focus on ‘high’ culture, the intention was to carry out group research on areas of popular culture such as chart music, television programmes and advertising.

This approach went profoundly against the grain of conventional academic practice. The Centre’s focus on the ‘contemporary’ in Birmingham, Britain and later around the world was combined with an engagement with critical theory, often introduced from the continent. The project.

And his latest body of work is no different. In Bliss: Transformational Festivals & the Neo Hippie, slated for release in October by powerHouse Books, Schapiro chronicles today’s hippie counterculture movement throughout the U.S. and in parts of Europe.

Electric Forest Festival. Bass Coast festival headdress ban ruffles feathers and sparks debate - Arts & Entertainment. What started as a policy decision by the Bass Coast Music and Arts Festival in Merritt, B.C., has exploded into an international discussion on cultural appropriation and a movement to stop revellers from wearing First Nation-style headdresses to parties around the world. The feathered headdress has become a sensitive pop culture phenomenon, springing up in fashion shows, music videos and on the heads of partygoers from Coachella to Bonnaroo.

Yet the protest encampments were created for primarily political purposes and with political motivation as opposed to the sub-cultural features behind the ethos of outdoor music gatherings. Prezi.
