Diane Negra , Yvonne Tasker. This timely, necessary collection of essays provides feminist analyses of a recession-era media culture characterized by the reemergence and refashioning of familiar gender tropes, including crisis masculinity, coping women, and postfeminist self-renewal. Interpreting media forms as diverse as reality television, financial journalism, novels, lifestyle blogs, popular cinema, and advertising, the contributors reveal gendered narratives that recur across media forms too often considered in isolation from one another. They also show how, with a few notable exceptions, recession-era popular culture promotes affective normalcy and transformative individual enterprise under duress while avoiding meaningful critique of the privileged white male or the destructive aspects of Western capitalism. By acknowledging the contradictions between political rhetoric and popular culture, and between diverse screen fantasies and lived realities, Gendering the Recession helps to make sense of our postboom cultural moment.

Best Practices for Non-Fiction Book Promotion on YouTube
It should be! There are several truly killer ways that you can leverage YouTube to market your book that are worth exploring. By far, one of the best ways to promote a non-fiction book on YouTube involves teaching people about what the book is about via short, bite-sized videos. Then, break down a chapter or two into a series of smaller videos and provide insight into smaller portions. But touch on important insights or processes that people will learn about in a way that allows each video to feel complete on its own. You could also eventually turn each video into a series of educational lessons about the larger topic, unlocking a powerful new opportunity for video monetization along the way.
This collection provides a rare opportunity to ask how emerging media affect the ethical choices in our lives and the lives of people across the globe. Centering on different new media forms from eBay to Wikipedia, each chapter raises questions about how changing media formats affect current theoretical understanding of ethics. By interrogating traditional ethical theory, we can better understand the challenges to ethical decision making in an age of rapidly evolving media. Each chapter focuses on a specific case within the broader conceptual fabric of ethical theory. The case studies ground the discussion of ethics in practical applications while, at the same time, addressing moral dilemmas that have plagued us for generations. The specific applications will undoubtedly continue to unfold, but the ethical questions will endure. Bruce E.
