Das Buch

Image, Power and Space: Studies in Consumption and Identity is a dynamic collection of studies by scholars working at the Chelsea School Research Centre (Faculty of Education and Sport) and the Centre for Research and Development (Faculty of Arts and Architecture), at the University of Brighton, UK. It brings together experts on sport and leisure, and art and design; draws upon social and cultural history, sociology and anthropology, cultural studies and politics; and confirms the interrelated concepts and themes of image, power and space as major frameworks and starting points for open-ended, interdisciplinary and critical research into popular culture and the arts.
