Book Summary:

Between the 1920s and the 1970s, American economic culture began to emphasize the value of consumption over production. At the same time, the rise of new mass media such as radio and television facilitated the advertising and sales of consumer goods on an unprecedented scale. In Style and Status: Selling Beauty to African American Women, 1920--1975, Susannah Walker analyzes an often-overlooked facet of twentieth-century consumer society as she explores the political, social, and racial implications of the business devoted to producing and marketing beauty products for African American women. Walker examines African American beauty culture as a significant component of twentieth-century consumerism, and she links both subjects to the complex racial politics of the era. The efforts of black entrepreneurs to participate in the American economy and to achieve self-determination of black beauty standards often caused conflict within the African American community. Additionally, a prevalence of white-owned firms in the African American beauty industry sparked widespread resentment, even among advocates of full integration in other areas of the American economy and culture. Concerned African Americans argued that whites had too much influence over black beauty culture and were invading the market, complicating matters of physical appearance with questions of race and power. Based on a wide variety of documentary and archival evidence, Walker concludes that African American beauty standards were shaped within black society as much as they were formed in reaction to, let alone imposed by, the majority culture. Style and Status challenges the notion that the civil rights and black power movements of the 1950s through the 1970s represents the first period in which African Americans wielded considerable influence over standards of appearance and beauty. Walker explores how beauty culture affected black women's racial and feminine identities, the role of black-owned businesses in African American communities, differences between black-owned and white-owned manufacturers of beauty products, and the concept of racial progress in the post--World War II era. Through the story of the development of black beauty culture, Walker examines the interplay of race, class, and gender in twentieth-century America.

Book Summary:

Inca constructions, designed to conform to a state aesthetic, reveal the worldview of these masters of social and architectural engineering. In her meticulous analysis of CallachacaOCothe fifteenth-century estate of the royal Amaro Topa Inca and his retainers near the ancient capital of CuzcoOCoSusan Niles shows us that the physical order seen in this planned community reflects the Inca vision of an appropriate social order. "Callachaca: Style and Status in an Inca Community" will be valuable reading for archaeologists, art historians, geographers, architects with an interest in pre-Columbian cultures, landscape architects, anthropologists, folklorists, and historians with a special interest in the Andes. Since she focuses on all the varied architectural remains at one site in the Inca heartland, Niles provides a unique model for examining royal Inca architecture and society."

Book Summary:

On college campuses and in high school halls, being white means being boring. Since whiteness is the mainstream, white kids lack a cultural identity that’s exotic or worth flaunting. To remedy this, countless white youths across the country are now joining more outré subcultures like the Black- and Puerto Rican–dominated hip-hop scene, the glamorously morose goth community, or an evangelical Christian organization whose members reject campus partying. Amy C. Wilkins’s intimate ethnography of these three subcultures reveals a complex tug-of-war between the demands of race, class, and gender in which transgressing in one realm often means conforming to expectations in another. Subcultures help young people, especially women, navigate these connecting territories by offering them different sexual strategies: wannabes cross racial lines, goths break taboos by becoming involved with multiple partners, and Christians forego romance to develop their bond with God. Avoiding sanctimonious hysteria over youth gone astray, Wilkins meets these kids on their own terms, and the result is a perceptive and provocative portrait of the structure of young lives.

Book Summary:

Ottoman gold-brocaded silk velvet (çatma) cushion covers from the seventeenth- and eighteenth-century Ottoman Empire, about 500 of which survive, are often treated as an undifferentiated aggregate because of their apparent uniformity of structure, materials, dimensions, format and motifs. However, close technical analysis of the çatma cushions reveals myriad differences. The differences-between objects that fall into the range of acceptable quality and those that do not-reveal nuances that are not reflected in the documents but that are nonetheless critical to understanding the large-scale production of luxury goods in the pre-industrial period. This dissertation investigates the range of like and unalike cushion covers from a social and economic perspective, focusing on the interaction between the production and consumption of the textiles. The first chapter contextualises the object's distinctive format, tracing its origins from the medieval Red Sea trade to the late sixteenth-century Ottoman Empire. The second shows how the small differences in material and structure indicate economisation on the part of the weavers, as they sought to husband their resources and perhaps to reach a larger number of consumers by producing a diversity of goods at different prices and qualities. The third chapter uses formal and technical analysis to periodise the objects. Records from the kadi courts in Bursa, the main centre for çatma production, illustrate how the weavers established, violated, and re-established standards for quality; the fourth chapter considers the standards in light of extant objects and establishes the frequency with which they were transgressed. The fifth chapter focuses on the consumers of the çatma cushions, using probate to understand how Ottoman men and women in the city of Edirne purchased, accumulated and displayed çatma cushions, other luxury textiles and signifying goods. The last chapter contextualises this consumption, using contemporary commentators to discuss ideas of luxury, decorum and signification among Ottoman subjects; it also looks at the imitations of the çatma cushions and speculates that the enthusiasm for the type may have helped drive production. The dissertation draws on diverse sources, from Ottoman manuscript painting to probate to hundreds of extant objects; supporting material is found in a series of figures, a catalogue and three appendices. Above all, this work rehabilitates objects which are often neglected and uses a new paradigm to suggest the importance, and relevance, of non-imperial production for the study of Islamic Art.
