Representations of Justice

Representations of Justice

Justice is a central bureaucracy in Dantec's 2003 voluminous Villa Vortex . The investigation is made impossible by those in charge of its supervision . Sectorial rigidities and solidarity block the inquiries .

The public understanding of law is gleaned from the cultural representation of justice which, in turn, reflects popular culture. Movies, caricatures, portrayal of trials by media or crime fiction shape the image of justice. However these representations play an important role in the legal system itself through the representation of truth as conveyed by litigating parties in their arguments. Studying how justice is represented in society is thus interesting for citizens who want to understand the popular culture but also for lawyers who want to understand theirs clients' expectations. This book explores in a multidisciplinary way the aspects of those representations of justice in their various forms in popular culture and in economics.

French Post modern Masculinities

French Post modern Masculinities

... is remarkably little sex in Dantec's writing. certainly Babylon Babies is about the idylls of a pregnant woman who is going to give birth to the twins of the future, and there is some explicit sex at the beginning of Villa Vortex.

As traditional notions of masculinity have been put into question, there have been representational reactions to and articulations of changing masculinities in post-modern culture. Certain contemporary French cultural productions are illustrative of these changing masculinities and this book offers the first comprehensive examination of these manifestations. Acclaimed critic Lawrence Schehr uses analysis of AIDS narratives, mainstream films, popular novels, more mainstream novels, a graphic novel, and rightist polemics to explore the changing meaning of masculinity in French society. French Postmodern Masculinities will appeal to a broad range of researchers and postgraduate students working in French cultural studies, cinema, and twentieth- and twenty-first-century French literature.
