Face in Trouble - From Physiognomics to Facebook Hardback
Edited by Katarzyna Trzeciak, Olga Szmidt
Part of the Polish Studies - Transdisciplinary Perspectives series
This book analyzes unobvious relations between historical definitions of the face and its contemporary usage in popular culture and social media, like Facebook or Instagram.
Bringing together a wide range of methodologies, it includes essays from manifold disciplines of the humanities such as philosophy, literary and art criticism, media and television studies, game studies, sociology and anthropology.
The authors focus on both metaphorical and material meanings of the face.
They grapple with crucial questions about modernity, modern and postmodern subjectivity, as well as with origins of certain linguistic terms and popular, colloquial phrases based on the concept of the face.
