Superman rose from popular culture - comic books, newspaper strips, radio, television, novels, and movies - but people have so embraced the character that he has now become part of folklore. This transition from popular to folk culture signals the importance of Superman to fans and to a larger American populace. Superman's story has become a myth dramatizing identity, morality, and politics. Many studies have examined the ways in which folklore has provided inspiration for other forms of culture, especially literature and cinema. In Superman in Myth and Folklore, Daniel Peretti explores the meaning of folklore inspired by popular culture, focusing not on the Man of Steel's origins but on the culture he has helped create. Superman provides a way to approach fundamental questions of human nature, a means of exploring humanity's relationship with divinity, an exemplar for debate about the type of hero society needs, and an articulation of the tension between the individual and the community. Through examinations of tattoos, humor, costuming, and festivals, Peretti portrays Superman as a corporate-owned intellectual property and a model for behavior, a means for expression and performance of individual identity, and the focal point for disparate members of fan communities. As fans apply Superman stories to their lives, they elevate him to a mythical status. Peretti focuses on the way these fans have internalized various aspects of the character. In doing so, he delves into the meaning of Superman and his place in American culture and demonstrates the character's staying power. The book is published by University Press of Mississippi. The audiobook will be published by University Press Audiobooks. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Carrico. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/130403/bk_acx0_130403_sample.mp3.

Vicky Beeching, called “arguably the most influential Christian of her generation” in The Guardian, began writing songs for the church in her teens. By the time she reached her early thirties, Vicky was a household name in churches on both sides of the pond. Recording multiple albums and singing in America’s largest megachurches, her music was used weekly around the globe and translated into numerous languages. But this poster girl for evangelical Christianity lived with a debilitating inner battle: she was gay. The tens of thousands of traditional Christians she sang in front of were unanimous in their view - they staunchly opposed same-sex relationships and saw homosexuality as a grievous sin. Vicky knew if she ever spoke up about her identity it would cost her everything. Faced with a major health crisis, at the age of 35 she decided to tell the world that she was gay. As a result, all hell broke loose. She lost her music career and livelihood, faced threats and vitriol from traditionalists, developed further health issues from the immense stress, and had to rebuild her life almost from scratch. But despite losing so much she gained far more: she was finally able to live from a place of wholeness, vulnerability, and authenticity. She finally found peace. What’s more, Vicky became a champion for others, fighting for LGBT equality in the church and in the corporate sector. Her courageous work is creating change in the US and the UK, as she urges people to celebrate diversity, live authentically, and become undivided. 1. Language: English.

Place Marketing and Branding
59,00 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

The book builds a framework and analyzes place marketing and branding practices, the main focus being on marketing management of places. This book is based on Rainisto's doctoral dissertation study at Helsinki University of Technology: 'Success Factors of Place Marketing' (2003). The study uses a theory building, qualitative case research agenda, with an embedded, longitudinal and multiple case design. The study applies the formed theoretical framework in an empirical research with the case locations of the Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Chicago metropolitan regions. The study investigates also how Northern European versus U.S. place marketers differ in their practices and comes to the conclusion that both regions can benefit from a study of each others practices. Strategic marketing can be also applied to places, and the tools of corporate marketing can be transferred to place marketing. Places can be branded, through creating and communicating a unique and competitive place identity, which can increase a place s attraction greatly towards investors, companies, tourism or business visitors, talented workforce or new residents.

New England Town

High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The New England town is the basic unit of local government in each of the six New England states. An institution that does not have a direct counterpart in most other U.S. states, New England towns are conceptually similar to civil townships in that they were originally set up so that all territory would be completely covered by them. However, New England towns are of greater importance in local government and civic identity than civil townships are in most of the states where the latter exist. New England towns are corporate entities, granted a charter by the state legislature, and have all the powers that a city in other states would typically have. In addition, virtually all corporate municipalities in New England are based on the town model, statutory forms based on the concept of a compact populated place, which is prevalent elsewhere in the U.S., are uncommon. County government in New England is typically weak or nonexistent, and the towns are of much greater importance than the counties.
