About this product
- DescriptionThe Everyday: Experiences, Concepts and Narratives is an inter-disciplinary book problematizing the slippery tion of 'Everyday Life'. Contributing to a tradition of 20th century scholarly work focusing on 'Everyday Life', this book specifically attends to the multiple ways that the quotidian aspects of our day-to-day existence become ktted into situated narratives and concepts. In their depth and breadth, the chapters compiled here all work with an understanding of everyday life that is irreducible to any one academic tradition or school of thought, and thus put forward interpretive approaches that require a specificity and attention to a diversity of kwledge archives. With contributions from the fields of art history, cultural studies, critical theory, anthropology, eco-criticism and cultural history, The Everyday: Experiences, Concepts and Narratives provides a unique space for critical dialogue questioning and exploring the way that everyday life intersects with - and informs - various debates in the humanities and social sciences as well as specific cultural narratives.
