Highbrow/Lowbrow: The Emergence of Cultural Hierarchy in America (William E. Massey Sr. Lectures in the History of American Civilization)

during this surprisingly wide-ranging learn, spanning greater than a century and masking such assorted types of expressive tradition as Shakespeare, crucial Park, symphonies, jazz, artwork museums, the Marx Brothers, opera, and vaudeville, a number one cultural historian demonstrates how variable and dynamic cultural limitations were and the way fragile and up to date the cultural different types we've got discovered to just accept as ordinary and everlasting are.

for many of the 19th century, a wide selection of expressive forms--Shakespearean drama, opera, orchestral tune, portray and sculpture, in addition to the writings of such authors as Dickens and Longfellow--enjoyed either excessive cultural prestige and mass acceptance. within the 19th century americans (in addition to no matter what particular ethnic, classification, and local cultures they have been a part of) shared a public tradition much less hierarchically equipped, much less fragmented into rather inflexible adjectival groupings than their descendants have been to adventure. through the 20th century this cultural eclecticism and openness grew to become more and more infrequent. Cultural house was once extra sharply outlined and not more versatile than it have been. The theater, as soon as a microcosm of America--housing either the full spectrum of the inhabitants and the total diversity of leisure from tragedy to farce, juggling to ballet, opera to minstrelsy--now fragmented into discrete areas catering to exact audiences and separate genres of expressive tradition. an analogous transition happened in live performance halls, opera homes, and museums. A becoming chasm among "serious" and "popular," among "high" and "low" tradition got here to dominate America's expressive arts.

"If there's a tragedy during this development," Levine reviews, "it is not just that hundreds of thousands of american citizens have been now separated from publicity to such creators as Shakespeare, Beethoven, and Verdi, whom that they had loved in quite a few codecs for a lot of the 19th century, but additionally that the inflexible cultural different types, when they have been in position, made it so tricky for thus lengthy for thus many to appreciate the worth and significance of the preferred paintings varieties that have been throughout them. Too lots of those that thought of themselves expert and cultured misplaced for an important period--and many have nonetheless now not regained--their skill to discriminate independently, to make things better out for themselves and remember the fact that just because a sort of expressive tradition used to be generally available and hugely renowned it was once no longer for this reason unavoidably without any redeeming price or inventive benefit. "

during this leading edge historic exploration, Levine not just strains the emergence of such primary different types as intellectual and lowbrow on the flip of the century, yet is helping us to appreciate extra truly either the method of cultural switch and the character of tradition in American society.

Example text

One must naturally understand political in its deeper meaning, as describing the whole of human relations in their real, social structure, in their power of making the world; one must above all give an active value to the prefix de-: here it represents an operational movement, it permanently embodies defaulting. . Myth does not deny things, on the contrary, its function is to talk about them; simply, it purifies . . it gives them clarity which is not that of an explanation but that of a statement of fact.

This visual strategy creates the sense that the camera is bringing the audience to the event, overriding the geophysical distance that separates viewers from the action. Richard Grusin and Jay Bolter identify two complimentary logics manifest in digital media, and television in particular, that they argue contribute to this phenomenon. These logics, which they collectively refer to as “remediation,” are (a) the proliferation of mediation and (b) a concomitant denial of the presence of mediation (Grusin and Bolter 11).

The resulting conclusions have primarily fallen within the purview of one main narrative strategy. Popular sentiment, for the most part, has rallied around the notion that terrorists all over the world are fighting and dying to destroy the way of life symbolized by the American Dream (Bush, “The Coalition Against Terrorism” 2). This includes all of the freedoms that describe the traditional view of America as a place of civil liberties and economic prosperity. While variations of this narrative do exist, few, if any, ultimately argue for any other formulation than a simple recourse to the logic of killing and hatred as directed against another group of people.
