Der Geschmack der Gentrifizierung

Author: Miriam Stock
Publisher: transcript Verlag
ISBN: 9783839425213
Release Date: 2014-03-31
Genre: Social Science

Arabische Imbisse haben von Beginn an die Gentrifizierung in Berliner Vierteln wie Kreuzberg, Prenzlauer Berg und Friedrichshain mitgeprägt. Von dieser ethnischen Gastronomie ausgehend untersucht Miriam Stock die Konstruktion dortiger Geschmackslandschaften. Sie beleuchtet sowohl die kreativen Praktiken und Verortungen der migrantischen Imbissbetreiber als auch die Dispositionen der neubürgerlichen Konsumenten, die in ihrem Streben nach kultureller Hegemonie auf Authentizitätsinszenierungen bedacht sind. Mittels subtiler und strenger Beobachtung des Alltäglichen entsteht so eine Zeitdiagnose über die feinen Mechaniken der Distinktion im spätmodernen Kapitalismus.

Release Date: 2006-03-07
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

New York Times bestselling author Jen Lancaster takes you from sorority house to penthouse to poorhouse in her hilarious memoir of living the sweet life—until real life kicked her to the curb. She had the perfect man, the perfect job—hell, she had the perfect life—and there was no reason to think it wouldn't last. Or maybe there was, but Jen Lancaster was too busy being manicured, pedicured, highlighted, and generally adored to notice. This is the smart-mouthed, soul-searching story of a woman trying to figure out what happens next when she's gone from six figures to unemployment checks and she stops to reconsider some of the less-than-rosy attitudes and values she thought she'd never have to answer for when times were good. Filled with caustic wit and unusual insight, it's a rollicking read as speedy and unpredictable as the trajectory of a burst balloon.
