"Mourning Diana" revisits the remarkable series of public events that occurred across the world following the tragic death of Princess Diana, from the spontaneous public gatherings right after the news broke to the official funeral ceremonies. The book takes the Diana events as a case study for the examination of a number of key questions in contemporary culture and within contemporary cultural and performance studies.
The editors have brought together a distinguished group of international contributors whom:
*view the Diana events as a case study of wider cultural processes and questions
*discuss a range of interdisciplinary concerns informed by cultural studies, performance studies, gender, sexuality, and sociology
*provide a substantive theory of the power relations of mourning, social drama, iconicity and cultural narration
*explore how the boundaries of the mainstream seemed to shift in the wake of Diana events, and how the questions of institutional privilege, social dispossession and cultural power which Diana embodied were brought to the forefront in the global reaction to her death
In a context in which considerable dispute has taken place over the meanings and seriousness of the Diana events, the publication of this serious, reflective, and sober critique speaks to and re-addresses this controversy.
