An outpouring of memorial tributes and public expressions of grief followed the death of the Tejana recording artist Selena Quintanilla Pérez in 1995. The Latina superstar was remembered and mourned in documentaries, magazines, websites, monuments, biographies, murals, look-alike contests, musicals, drag shows, and more. Deborah Paredez explores the significance and broader meanings of this posthumous celebration of Selena, which she labels “Selenidad.” She considers the performer’s career and emergence as an icon within the political and cultural transformations in the United States during the 1990s, a decade that witnessed a “Latin explosion” in culture and commerce alongside a resurgence of anti-immigrant discourse and policy. Paredez argues that Selena’s death galvanized Latina/o efforts to publicly mourn collective tragedies (such as the murders of young women along the U.S.-Mexico border) and to envision a brighter future. At the same time, reactions to the star’s death catalyzed political jockeying for the Latino vote and corporate attempts to corner the Latino market. Foregrounding the role of performance in the politics of remembering, Paredez unravels the cultural, political, and economic dynamics at work in specific commemorations of Selena. She analyzes Selena’s final concert, the controversy surrounding the memorial erected in the star’s hometown of Corpus Christi, and the political climate that served as the backdrop to the touring musicals Selena Forever and Selena: A Musical Celebration of Life. Paredez considers what “becoming” Selena meant to the young Latinas who auditioned for the biopic Selena, released in 1997, and she surveys a range of Latina/o queer engagements with Selena, including Latina lesbian readings of the star’s death scene and queer Selena drag. Selenidad is a provocative exploration of how commemorations of Selena reflected and changed Latinidad.

Since its initial publication, scholars and students alike have turned to Keywords for American Cultural Studies as an invaluable resource for understanding key terms and debates in the fields of American studies and cultural studies. As scholarship has continued to evolve, this revised and expanded second edition offers indispensable meditations on new and developing concepts used in American studies, cultural studies, and beyond. It is equally useful for college students who are trying to understand what their teachers are talking about, for general readers who want to know what’s new in scholarly research, and for professors who just want to keep up. Designed as a print-digital hybrid publication, Keywords collects more than 90 essays—30 of which are new to this edition—from interdisciplinary scholars, each on a single term such as “America,” “culture,” “law,” and “religion.” Alongside “community,” “prison,” "queer," “region,” and many others, these words are the nodal points in many of today’s most dynamic and vexed discussions of political and social life, both inside and outside of the academy. The Keywords website, which features 33 essays, provides pedagogical tools that engage the entirety of the book, both in print and online. The publication brings together essays by scholars working in literary studies and political economy, cultural anthropology and ethnic studies, African American history and performance studies, gender studies and political theory. Some entries are explicitly argumentative; others are more descriptive. All are clear, challenging, and critically engaged. As a whole, Keywords for American Cultural Studies provides an accessible A to Z survey of prevailing academic buzzwords and a flexible tool for carving out new areas of inquiry.

Tango ist Translation. Die in diesem Buch versammelten Texte beschäftigen sich mit unterschiedlichen Übertragungsbewegungen des Tangos. Sie untersuchen Tanzstile und Tanzerfahrungen, szenespezifische Rituale, diskursive Strategien und Geschlechterverhältnisse in verschiedenen lokalen Tangokulturen sowie Parodien als grenzüberschreitende Übertragungen in Tanzkunst und populären Tango-Tänzen. Die Texte zeigen, dass Übertragungsbewegungen, ob zwischen den Kulturen, innerhalb einer Tanzszene oder auch zwischen einzelnen ästhetischen Medien wie Tanz, Bild und Text, weder einen einheitlichen Ursprung haben noch linear verlaufen oder als Kopien eines vermeintlichen Originals zu deuten sind. Vielmehr wird die These plausibilisiert, dass Übertragungsbewegungen immer brüchig und fragil sind und transformieren, wenn sie in neue Kontexte gestellt und mit unterschiedlichen lebensweltlichen oder politischen Bedeutungen aufgeladen werden. Das Buch leistet einen Beitrag zur internationalen Tangoforschung und zugleich zu einer kultur-, sozial- und politikwissenschaftlich ausgerichteten Tanzforschung, die Tango als Feld einer das Politische und Soziale implizierenden transkulturellen körperlichen und subjektiven Erfahrung sichtbar macht.

Klassische Medien wie Rundfunk, Film und Fernsehen sind ebenso wie die „Neuen Medien“ Internet oder Computerspiele längst Gegenstand der Geschlechterforschung. Dieses Lehrbuch macht mit Begriffen, Theorien und Problemen des Feldes vertraut und befähigt Studierende, dies auf aktuelle Phänomene anzuwenden. Die Autorinnen stellen theoretische Modelle der Geschlechterforschung vor und beschreiben ihre Anwendung in der Medienforschung. Zentrale Begriffe werden erläutert und Fragen zur methodischen Anlage von Gender Media Studies diskutiert. Zahlreiche Fallbeispiele verdeutlichen den spezifischen Ertrag der Geschlechterforschung für die Medien- und Kommunikationswissenschaften. Zugleich liefern sie Material, um die konkrete Umsetzung von Forschungsfragen in eigene empirische Arbeiten zu erproben. Wie wandeln sich Geschlechterverhältnisse in Journalismus und PR? Wie lassen sich Medientexte in Zeitung, Fernsehen oder Internet analysieren? Das Buch integriert sowohl sozial- als auch kulturwissenschaftliche Perspektiven zum Verständnis von Geschlecht im gesamten Spektrum der Medienkommunikation.
