Vampire Culture

Vampire Culture

Unique and exciting, this ethnographic study is the first to address a little-known subculture, which holds a fascination for many. The first decade of the twenty-first century has displayed an ever increasing fixation with vampires, from the recent spate of phenomenally successful books, films, and television programmes, to the return of vampire-like style on the catwalk. Amidst this hype, there exists a small, dedicated community that has been celebrating their interest in the vampire since the early 1990s. The London vampire subculture is an alternative lifestyle community of people from all walks of life and all ages, from train drivers to university lecturers, who organise events such as fang fittings, gothic belly dancing, late night graveyard walks, and "carve your own tombstone". Mellins presents an extraordinary account of this fascinating subculture, which is largely unknown to most people. Through case study analysis of the female participants, Vampire Culture investigates women's longstanding love affair with the undead, and asks how this fascination impacts on their lives, from fiction to fashion. Vampire Culture includes photography from community member and professional photographer SoulStealer, and is an essential read for students and scholars of gender, film, television, media, fashion, culture, sociology and research methods, as well as anyone with an interest in vampires, style subcultures, and the gothic.

Saving America? Faith-Based Services and the Future of Civil Society

Saving America? Faith-Based Services and the Future of Civil Society

On January 29, 2001, President George W. Bush signed an executive order creating the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. This action marked a key step toward institutionalizing an idea that emerged in the mid-1990s under the Clinton administration--the transfer of some social programs from government control to religious organizations. However, despite an increasingly vocal, ideologically charged national debate-a debate centered on such questions as: What are these organizations doing? How well are they doing it? Should they be supported with tax dollars?-solid answers have been few. In Saving America? Robert Wuthnow provides a wealth of up-to-date information whose absence, until now, has hindered the pursuit of answers. Assembling and analyzing new evidence from research he and others have conducted, he reveals what social support faith-based agencies are capable of providing. Among the many questions he addresses: Are congregations effective vehicles for providing broad-based social programs, or are they best at supporting their own members? How many local congregations have formal programs to assist needy families? How much money do such programs represent? How many specialized faith-based service agencies are there, and which are most effective? Are religious organizations promoting trust, love, and compassion?The answers that emerge demonstrate that American religion is helping needy families and that it is, more broadly, fostering civil societ...

Emma Després Namaste. My Everest Journey

Emma Després Namaste. My Everest Journey

Yoga and Reiki Master Teacher, Emma Després, has always been drawn to travel and learning about new cultures. So when the opportunity arose to trek to Everest Base Camp and volunteer at a Nepali village school, she jumped at it.Not only was it a great excuse to leave her corporate life and an on/off relationship behind, but it also gave her the chance to connect with the spiritual energy of the sacred Himalayas, and offer her some welcome breathing space to consider her next steps in life.However, it was only when she got off the plane in Lukla that she realised her daily yoga practice had not exactly equipped her for trekking up the world’s tallest mountain.Namaste charts her physical, emotional and spiritual journey through the various stages of her climb to and from Base Camp. As her body battled freezing temperatures and very thin air, her mind had to stay motivated as she took a long hard look at herself. Facing some home truths proved harder than dealing with the terrifying suspension bridges (don’t look down).Her passion for the mountains and her love of Nepal and the Nepali people shines through this inspiring and honest account of a life-changing journey.

This delightful memoir will inspire you to pack your bags for Provence—for a sweet sojourn or, just maybe, a longer stay.

Lyn Drummond Where To Go For a Seven-year Cycle

Lyn Drummond Where To Go For a Seven-year Cycle

Where to Go For a Seven-year Cycle is a philosophical, often off the main tourist beat travel book based on the author Lyn Drummond’s seven years’ travel experiences working mainly in central and eastern Europe. The book’s title is based on a Jung philosophy that seven years of our lives represent a particular cycle and she has just completed such a cycle. The seven years began when she left Sydney in 2002 to work in Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia as a volunteer for an aid agency. The journey continues in 2003 to Hungary and a three year contract at the Australian embassy in Budapest, and later as a teacher and journalist in other parts of the region, such as Montenegro, Croatia, Slovenia and Albania. It is not a travel book in the sense that it lists places and contact details, but an exploration of a region she previously had no particular interest in, a renewed discovery of her European heritage, a strong relationship with a city (Budapest) she has no traditional or family connection to and a contemplation of the strong feelings she once had for Australia. The book also examines elements of exile, and anonymity in foreign countries which can create a rather contented bubble of living, sometimes immune from more deeper emotions – including in the context of her long friendship with the late Australian writer Randolph Stow, who settled in her home town in England and whose books dwelt on these themes. For further information about this book’s topics and her trav...

Gary Ross No Sacred Oxen

Gary Ross No Sacred Oxen

In this unorthodox autobiographical collection of essays the author invites the reader into a world of travel, teaching, education, entertainment, chess, childhood, adolescence, adulthood, despair, political intrigue, faith and Catholicism. From beginning to end the reader will find moments of laughter and sadness and, on occasion, the absurd. This is a quest and a voyage into an unknown future we all share and decide upon for better or worse, for richer or poorer.In the telling of his story the author discovers and reveals a deeper reason why numerous attempts to reach Mount Happiness are thwarted, although this is not so much a quest for happiness as a realization that what is worthwhile in life often begins with having faith in the present and the future. Such things define us all and even define nations. The author writes upon an historical canvas in describing the past, not only as it existed in his own life, but in that of England from 1500 AD onwards and to the present day. In this particular instance the context is political and religious and a conclusion presents the reader with the notion of a stark choice in the antepenultimate essay, The Miner's Son.On this journey there are also plenty of diversions along the way, from a pilgrimage in Spain to rock concerts in England, from brewery tours to punch-ups and from cliff diving competitions in Oman to coach trips in Saudi Arabia. A life - characteristic in its vicissitudes and variety - is explained, mourned and ce...

Corinna Vellnagel Intercultural Communication within the Tourism Industry

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2,0, University of Cooperative Education Ravensburg, language: English, abstract: Tourism is the most superficial way of an intercultural encounter1 and one of the biggest industrialsectors in the world. "The WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council) estimates thatover 230 million jobs in world are supported by the tourism industry, which equates to 8.3 percent of total global employment, or one in every 12 jobs."2 Furthermore, the latest statisticsfrom 2008 show that tourism has not reached its peak yet. Over 80 countries earned morethan € 642 billion through international tourism in 2008, while in 1990 it had only been € 207billion.3 Another statistic representing and pointing up the booming tendency is the one showingthe international tourist arrivals: while there had only been 25 million arrivals in 1950, thenumber constantly rose to 922 million in 2008 and by 2020 1.6 billion international touristarrivals are expected.4 With so many tourists spending time abroad every year it is a logicalconsequence that different culture groups meet. From time to time, people may spend twoweeks in Turkey, Dubai, Cancun or on Bali. This unfortunately might happen without thepeople even getting the local culture rudimentarily. But if they try to get to know the local culture,difficulties may occur. It is not only the language which is different and causes troublesand misunderstandings in communication; attitudes and t...

James Richardson Narrative of a Mission to Central Africa Performed in the Years 1850-51, (Volume 1) Under the Orders and at the Expense of Her Majesty.s Government

James Richardson (born 3 November 1809 in Boston, Lincolnshire; died 4 March 1851 in Ngurutua near Kukawa, Bornu). Richardson made an expedition in 1845 from Tunis and Tripoli in Libya to Ghadames and Ghat in the middle of the Sahara. Here he collected information about the Tuareg and arrived after nine months back again in Tripoli. After he had published "Travels into the great desert of Sahara" (2 Books. London 1849), he succeeded to convince the British government to equip an expedition into Sudan and to lake Chad. In March 1850 Richardson went for the second time to Ghat accompanied by Heinrich Barth and Adolf Overweg. His party were the first Europeans to cross the stony elevated plain of the Hammada. James Richardson died of unknown illness on this journey on 4 March 1851 in Ngurutua, a six-day journey away from Kukawa near Lake Chad. His travel notes and diaries were published by Bayle Saint John as Narrative of a Mission to Central Africa (1853) and Travels in Morocco (1859).
