George Plasketes, "Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself: Essays on Debut Albums"
English | ISBN: 1409441768 | 2013 | 268 pages | PDF | 2 MB

Please Allow Me to Introduce Myself: Essays on Debut Albums
Debut albums are among the cultural artifacts that capture the popular imagination especially well. As a first impression, the debut album may take on a mythical status, whether the artist or group achieves enduring success or in rare cases when an initial record turns out to be an apogee for an artist. Whatever the subsequent career trajectory, the debut album is a meaningful text that can be scrutinized for its revelatory signs and the expectations that follow. tells the stories of 23 debut albums over a nearly fifty year span, ranging from Buddy Holly and the Crickets in 1957 to The Go! Team in 2004. In addition to biographical background and a wealth of historical information about the genesis of the album, each essay looks back at the album and places it within multiple contexts, particularly the artist's career development. In this way, the book will be of as much interest to sociologists and historians as to culture critics and musicologists.

The Archaeology of Art in the American Southwest

The Archaeology of Art in the American Southwest (Issues in Southwest Archaeology) by Marit K. Munson
English | 2011 | ISBN: 0759110778 | 216 pages | PDF | 4 MB

The Archaeology of Art in the American Southwest
Archaeologists seldom study ancient art, even though art is fundamental to the human experience. argues that archaeologists should study ancient artifacts as artwork, as applying the term "art" to the past raises new questions about artists, audiences, and the works of art themselves. Munson proposes that studies of ancient artwork be based on standard archaeological approaches to material culture, framed by theoretical insights of disciplines such as art history, visual studies, and psychology. Using examples drawn from the American Southwest, discusses artistic practice in ancestral Pueblo and Mimbres ceramics and the implications of context and accessibility for the audiences of painted murals and rock art. Studies of Hohokam figurines and rock art illustrate methods for studying ancient images, while the aesthetics of ancient art are suggested by work on ceramics and kivas from Chaco Canyon. This book will be of interest to archaeologists working in the Southwest who want to broaden their perspective on the past. It will also appeal to archaeologists in other parts of the world and to anthropologists, art historians, and those who are intrigued by the material world, aesthetics, and the visual.
