  3. Rethinking gamification

    Fuchs, Mathias; Fizek, Sonia; Ruffino, Paolo; Schrape, Niklas
    Gamification marks a major change to everyday life. It describes the permeation of economic, political, and social contexts by game-elements such as awards, rule structures, and interfaces that are inspired by video games. Sometimes the term is reduced to the implementation of points, badges, and leaderboards as incentives and motivations to be productive. Sometimes it is envisioned as a universal remedy to deeply transform society toward more humane and playful ends. Despite its use by corporations to manage brand communities and personnel, however, gamification is more than just a marketing buzzword. States are beginning to use it as a new...

  4. Acting for the silent screen: film actors and aspiration between the wars

    O'Rourke, Chris
    Publisher's description: A shop girl wins a newspaper competition and is transformed overnight into a transatlantic celebrity. An aristocrat swaps high society for the film studio when she 'consents' to perform in a series of films, thus legitimising acting for what some might have considered a 'low' art. Stories like these were the stuff of newspaper headlines in 1920s and reflected a 'craze' for the cinema. They also demonstrated radical changes in attitudes and values within society in the wake of World War I. Chris O'Rourke investigates the myths and material practices that grew up around film actors during the...

  7. Beds and chambers in late medieval England: readings, representations and realities

    Morgan, Hollie L. S.
    The bed, and the chamber which contained it, was something of a cultural and social phenomenon in late-medieval England. Their introduction into some aristocratic and bourgeois households captured the imagination of late-medieval English society. The bed and chamber stood for much more than simply a place to rest one's head: they were symbols of authority, unparalleled spaces of intimacy, sanctuaries both for the powerless and the powerful. This change in physical domestic space shaped the ways in which people thought about less tangible concepts such as gender politics, communication, God, sex and emotions. Furthermore, the practical uses of beds and...

  9. Hungarian film 1929-1947: national identity, anti-Semitism and popular cinema

    Gergely, Gabor
    What is Hungarian? was the key question that exercised interwar Hungary. The trauma of the punitive peace of 1918 sent the country searching for its true identity. Films were seen as part of the cultural discourse responsible for the shaping of national identity. As talkies took off, audiences, filmmakers, critics and officials began to question the Hungary they saw on screen. The debate escalated quickly: was the Hungary familiar from the screens also familiar from ‘real’ life? Was Hungarian cinema truly Hungarian? Could Jews be Hungarian? The answers proposed were that the films were Jewish, and to be Hungarian was...
