Since its 2013 premiere, Orange Is the New Black has become Netflix's most watched series, garnering critical praise and numerous awards and advancing the cultural phenomenon of binge-watching. Academic conferences now routinely feature panels discussing the show, and the book on which it is based is popular course material at many universities. Yet little work has been published on OINTB. The series has sparked debate: does it celebrates diversity or is it told from the perspective of white privilege, with characters embodying some of the most racist and sexist stereotypes in television history? This collection of new essays is the first to analyze the show's multiple layers of meaning. Examining Orange Is the New Black from a number of feminist perspectives, the contributors cover topics such as gender, race, class, sexuality, transgenderism, mass incarceration and the prison industrial complex, disability, and sexual assault.

With 70 essays written by scholars from around the world, the book brings diverse approaches into dialogue, charting new pathways for understanding culture in our global era.

In addition, contributors explore developments central to the constitution and reproduction of culture, such as power, technology, and the organization of work. This handbook is essential reading for undergraduate and postgraduate students interested in a wide range of subfields within sociology, as well as cultural studies, media and communication, and postcolonial theory.

Von der 5th Avenue in den Knast Das Buch zur US-Kultserie! Piper Kerman lebt glücklich mit ihrem Verlobten in Manhattan, als ihr eine Jugendsünde zum Verhängnis wird. Das Gericht verurteilt sie zu einer 15-monatigen Haftstrafe, und Piper tauscht Designeroutfits und Loft gegen orange Häftlingskleidung und eine Zelle in einem Frauengefängnis. Über die Zeit dort, über Schikanen, bösartige Attacken, aber auch über Freundschaften und vor allem ihre toughen und warmherzigen Mitgefangenen schreibt sie ohne Selbstmitleid, humorvoll und sehr unterhaltsam. «Ich liebe dieses Buch in einem Maße, das mich selbst überrascht hat. Eine wundervoll erzählte Geschichte darüber, wie unglaublich Frauen sein können.» Elizabeth Gilbert, Autorin von «Eat, Pray, Love» «Dies ist ein ernstes und großherziges Buch, das das Leben in einem Frauengefängnis sehr detailliert und – das ist entscheidend – mit Empathie und Respekt für Piper Kermans Mitinhaftierte schildert, von denen die wenigsten über ihre Möglichkeiten verfügten.» Dave Eggers «Dieses Buch können Sie nicht aus der Hand legen, weil Sie selbst in diese Situation hätten geraten können. Oder Ihre beste Freundin. Oder Ihre Tochter.» Los Angeles Times

Mit fünfzehn Vorschlägen für eine feministische Erziehung wirft die Bestseller-Autorin Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie so einfache wie wichtige Fragen auf und spannt den Bogen zwischen zwei Generationen von Frauen – ein Buch für Mütter und Töchter. Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Feministin und Autorin des preisgekrönten Weltbestsellers ›Americanah‹, hat einen Brief an ihre Freundin Ijeawele geschrieben, die gerade ein Mädchen zur Welt gebracht hat. Ijeawele möchte ihre Tochter zu einer selbstbestimmten Frau erziehen, frei von überholten Rollenbildern und Vorurteilen. Alles selbstverständlich, aber wie gelingt das konkret? Mit ihrem Manifest ›Liebe Ijeawele. Wie unsere Töchter selbstbestimmte Frauen werden‹ zeigt Chimamanda Adichie, dass Feminismus kein Reizwort ist, sondern eine Selbstverständlichkeit. Mit fünfzehn simplen Vorschlägen für eine feministische Erziehung öffnet sie auch den Blick auf die eigene Kindheit und Jugend. Die junge nigerianische Bestseller-Autorin steht für einen Feminismus, mit dem sich alle identifizieren können. We should all be feminists!

In her analysis of Morrison's five novels - Beloved, The Bluest Eye, Song of Solomon, Sula, and Tar Baby - Rigney defines a black feminine/feminist aesthetic. The many "voices" of Toni Morrison, Rigney argues, are manifested in her radical use of language, her reformulations of self and identity, her reinterpretations of history as both fact and mythology, and her images of female desire. As Rigney describes Morrison's texts, they are characterized by deliberate and meaningful silences, by the movement beyond language into music, and by representations of magic realism and the conjure world. While Morrison's fictions disrupt traditional chronologies and diffuse linearity, they also bear historical witness to the realities and brutalities of slavery, reconstruction, depression, and war - and thus, Rigney documents, they are always profoundly political. Rigney's study, like Morrison's novels, transcends traditional interpretations, maps new territory for postmodern fictions, and cultivates a commonground for,a discourse on theory, race, and gender.
