The study of various types of programming is essential for critical analysis of the media and also offers revealing perspectives on society's cultural values, preoccupations, behavior, and myths. This handbook provides a systematic, in-depth approach to the study of media genres - including reality programs, game shows, situation comedies, soap operas, film noir, news programs, and more. The author addresses such questions as: Have there been shifts in the formula of particular genres over time? What do these shifts reveal about changes in culture? How and why do new genres - such as reality TV shows - appear? Are there differences in genres from one country to another? Combining theoretical approaches with concrete examples, the book reinforces one's understanding of the importance of genre to the creation, evolution, and consumption of media content. Each chapter in this reader-friendly book contains a detailed discussion of one of the theoretical approaches to genre studies, followed by Lines of Inquiry, which summarizes the major points of the discussion and suggests directions for analysis and further study. Each chapter also includes an example that illustrates how the particular theoretical approach can be applied in the analysis of genre. The author's careful linkage of different genres to the real world makes the book widely useful for those interested in genre study as well as media and culture, television studies, film studies, and media literacy.

"In the first or second row of this theater, I sit captive with the audience, in a full house. The curtains are drawn; the show, soon to begin. In the interim, as I strum my duocello, the audience of albino ants responds with enthusiasm. I happen to note the thick flat pick with which I have been playing. When was it I made a pick like that before?" Prose poetry is sometimes thought of as a short form, limited in extent to no more than a page or two. In Wain Ewing's Plot, an effort has been made to expand the reach of the prose poem by bridging the written and the visual. Based on a dream journal, this is a creative, experimental novella featuring prose poetry and author drawings. Segments portray the power of simple observation that gives meaning to the mundane. Sometimes the words read like stream of consciousness. Tone ranges from literary to absurd, surreal to visionary. Ewing's storytelling is imaginative and fresh, not afraid of challenging literary convention. His is a creative journey, and you are invited to join.

Bringing together some of the most important poetic texts of the Anglo-Saxon period, Anne Klinck presents the poems both as discrete entities and as members of an elegiac group, all inspired by the sense of separation from one's desire that is at the heart of elegiac poetry in Old English. Klinck analyses the poems' manuscript context in the Exeter Book - along with their possible dates and dialectal provenance, and the main critical problems they raise - and presents the texts with detailed textual notes and an apparatus criticus of editorial variants. She then examines the elegiac genre in Old English: its features, origins, and affinities (giving examples of analogous elegies in Latin, Norse, and Early Welsh, with both text and translation). Klinck includes a comprehensive bibliography and a glossary listing all word-forms to be found in the elegies.

Culinary imagery, much like sexual and violent imagery, is a key cinematic device used to elicit a sensory response from an audience. In many films, culinary imagery is central enough to constitute a new subgenre, defined by films in which food production, preparation, service, and consumption play a major part in the development of character, structure, or theme. This book defines the food film genre and analyzes the relationship between cinematic food imagery and various cultural constructs, including politics, family, identity, race, ethnicity, nationality, gender, and religion. Chapters examine these themes in several well-known food films, such as The Cook, the Thief, His Wife and Her Lover, Chocolat, Babette’s Feast, and Eat Drink Man Woman, and lesser-known productions, including Felicia’s Journey, Kitchen Stories, Magic Kitchen, and Chinese Feast. The work includes a filmography of movies within the food genre. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Genre Studies around the Globe: Beyond the Three Traditions exemplifies rich and vibrant international scholarship in the area of non-literary genre studies in the early 21st century. Based on the Genre 2012 conference held in Ottawa, Canada, the volume brings under one cover the three Anglophone traditions (English for Specific Purposes, the Sydney School, Rhetorical Genre Studies) and the approaches to genre studies developed in other national, linguistic, and cultural contexts (Brazilian, Chilean, and European). The volume contributors investigate a variety of genres, ranging from written to spoken to multimodal, and discuss issues, central to the field of genre studies: genre conceptualization in different traditions, its theoretical underpinnings, the goals of genre research, and pedagogical implications of genre studies. This collection is addressed to researchers, teachers, and students of genre who wish to familiarize themselves with current international developments in genre studies.
