“Für immer: From Krautrock to Gothrock and Beyond” – Alexander Carpenter

Krautrock—an influential subgenre of German popular music from the late 1960s and early 1970s—helped to shape the birth and evolution of the gothic rock genre, the stylist roots of which remain otherwise obscure. The influence of Krautrock can be traced through the first and second wave UK goth bands—especially Germanophile groups such as Joy Division, Bauhaus, and The Sisters of Mercy. This influence can still be heard today, not only in neo-gothic music, but also via a range of contemporary pop/rock/hip-hop via artists from Primal Scream to Q-Tip who pay homage to, cover, quote and sample Krautrock.

 

 

“Liminality in Contested Industries: The Tobacco Controversy” – Diego Coraiola

Abstract: How do sinful industries as booze, guns, and sex continue existing and profiting in spite of the criticism and social pressures over their businesses? Studies on legitimacy focus on the benefits of legitimacy and the harmful consequences of illegitimate action. Organization scholars implicitly assume that legitimacy contests are harmful to organizational image and performance. As a result, they have failed to provide a sound explanation for the endurance of controversial industries. We argue that core-stigmatized organizations persist because they engage in the creation of liminal spaces. We analyze how the tobacco industry in the US survived by creating liminal spaces.
