Auteur :
KENNY, J.T.

Description :
Culture has come to perform a pivotal role in the selling of places. Using the case of Milwaukee, this paper explores the relationship between a city's image and a complex reality by examining the manipulation of local cultural resources to promote dominant interests. This city's experience demonstrates the extent to which a politics of resistance can be espoused on the basis of contested local representations of different class and racial experiences.
