Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2015 im Fachbereich Ethnologie / Volkskunde, Note: 1,7, Friedrich-Alexander-Universitat Erlangen-Nurnberg, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In folgender Arbeit soll nicht das Verhalten der Studiobesucher auf der Trainingsflache beobachtet werden, sondern das Verhalten der Trainierenden in den Umkleidekabinen stehen im Vordergrund folgender ethnographischen Untersuchung. Den Umkleideraumen wird dabei oftmals die Funktion einer notwendigen Hinterbuhne zugewiesen, die vorwiegend dem Wechsel zwischen Sport- und Alltagswelt dient. Dabei soll der Frage nachgegangen werden, welche korperlichen Interaktionen sich in den Umkleiden von Fitnessstudios beobachten lassen und wie in Gruppenumkleidekabinen mit dem sensiblen Thema der Entblossung umgegangen wird. Der vorliegende Aufsatz soll die aufgeworfene Frage in vier Abschnitten untersuchen. Zunachst ist es notwendig, eine Ubersicht uber die Methodik der Studie als teilnehmende Beobachtung zu geben. Im darauffolgenden Abschnitt soll sich dann mit dem Fitnessstudio als untersuchtes Feld hinsichtlich Infrastruktur, Gemeinsamkeiten und sozialstrukturellen Aspekte auseinandergesetzt werden. Aus der Auseinandersetzung mit dem beobachteten Verhalten in Umkleidekabinen heraus, sollen dann in Abschnitt 4 die typischen Funktionen und Verhaltensweisen in Umkleidekabinen dargestellt werden. Am Ende des Aufsatzes findet sich schliesslich eine Zusammenfassung und ein kurzer Forschungsausblick."

Exploring materialism and social relationships in modern culture Material Culture and Mass Consumption offers an in-depth exploration of objects, objectification, ideology, and materialism in modern society. Drawing from Hegel, Marx, Munn, and Simmel, the discussion delves into the physicality of the material world and attempts to understand materialism as a form of cultural expression. Targeting mass production as the root of mass consumption, rather than the result, this book positions material goods at odds with genuine social interaction and questions these relationships from the abstract to the intensely specific.

Architecture is making its presence felt in cutting-edge fashion. The pliable metals, membrane structures, lightweight glasses and plastics used in building construction are creeping onto the catwalk. As they do so, their impact on recent textile developments has produced fabrics that enable clothing to act as individual climate-controlled environments that can exchange information with embedded sensors, resulting in wearable ‘dwellings’ that act as both shelter and clothing. At the same time, architects are borrowing the techniques of pleating, stapling, cutting and draping from traditional tailoring to design buildings that are flexible, interactive, inflatable and even portable. Although the relationship between architecture and fashion was recognized more than a century ago, the connection between them has rarely been explored by historians, designers or practicing architects. The Fashion of Architecture is the first attempt to investigate the contemporary relationship between architecture and fashion in considerable depth, by examining the ideas, imagery, techniques and materials used by visionaries such as Martin Margiela, Issey Miyake, Alexander McQueen, Tadao Ando and Daniel Libeskind. As mavericks ranging from Hussein Chalayan and Rei Kawakubo to Rem Koolhaas and Zaha Hadid describe architecture’s role in the formation of fashion identities, new readings of both areas emerge. Probing and far-reaching in its content, The Fashion of Architecture is the most comprehensive study of this exciting area to date.
Offers a look at the invention of whiteness and how the inextricable links between race and class were formed in the seventeenth century and consolidated by custom, social relations, and eventually naturalized by the structures that organize our lives and our work. Arguing that, unlike in Europe, where class formed around the nation-state, race deeply informed how class is defined in this country and, conversely, our unique relationship to class in this country helped in some ways to invent race as a distinction in social relations. Begins tracing this development in the slave plantations in 1600s colonial life. Examines how the social structures encoded there lead to a concrete development of racialization. Then takes us up to the present day, where forms of those structures still inhabit our public and economic institutions. Offers a completely original conception of how race and class have operated in American life throughout the centuries. From publisher description.
