Abstract: This paper address the issue of context in the research agenda of state building. In so doing, this paper argues for relating state building to dynamics that are specific to post Cold War international relations. I contend that contemporary discussion of state building is limited by its attempt to isolate the correct historical lessons from historical or on-going examples of contemporary state building. The problem with this policy-oriented, historical approach, I argue, is that it fails to relate contemporary state building to its proximate cause – namely, the suppression of sovereign state autonomy during the ‘new interventionism’ of the 1990s. I advance the argument that state building needs to be understood not as a reaction to conflict in ‘failed states’, but as flowing from the need to ameliorate the destructive consequences of humanitarian intervention. Rather than merely reviving the shattered institutions of particular states, I argue that state building is an attempt to revivify international relations itself, through re-constructing autonomous sovereign states as the constituent units of world politics. I conclude by suggesting that the category of state building should be understood not merely in terms of post-conflict reconstruction policy, but rather as a paradigm for the operation of North—South relations in the early twenty first century.

Abstract: This article is based on the urban planning discourse that developed in Asheville, North Carolina, following a growth boom in the mid 2000s. Residents, city officials and other stakeholders became concerned that overdevelopment threatened to eclipse Asheville's unique appeal; simultaneously, developers complained that the approval process was overly tortuous. The city hired an outside consultant to facilitate a master-planning process, through which a broad spectrum of community members developed strategies and recommendations, ultimately arriving at a “shared vision” for the prized downtown district. Interviews with local actors involved in the master plan revealed three mechanisms at work: a) the normalization of growth and development, and b) the neutralization of resistance through consensus-building, and c) the legitimization of the plan through partial representativeness. In the theoretical tradition of participatory planning critics, this case shows how a self-identified progressive community democratically consents to a neoliberal agenda of urban capital expansion.

Abstract: This paper shows how museums of poor people’s housing deploy seemingly "hard," material evidence (architecture) toward specific ends, making some things more legible than others; how museums build cases with buildings. Although existing literature has documented how reputational entrepreneurs construct “authentic” narratives, this paper focuses on a specific type of material evidence relevant to a particular social category: how museums use domestic architecture to make claims about poor people’s housing. To do so, this paper uses participant observation and archival research at the Lower East Side Tenement Museum (LESTM) to examine the way housing museums deploy domestic space to interpret and represent the lives of the people they depict. Using participant observation at the National Museum of Public Housing (NMPH) as an illustrative comparison, the paper deploys a legal metaphor in order to deconstruct evidentiary processes and museums’ reliance on and misconstruction of domestic architecture. This paper shows that LESTM relies on circular, tautological claims in which museum researchers put together the story of the tenement residents from various documentary sources, build a domestic display to suit the story, and then offer the domestic setting as evidence for the story.

Abstract: Durable media franchises are inevitably sites of change. For creative or commercial purposes, they tend to change both in terms of what commodities they hold and what stories they contain. This paper analyses Hasbro’s Transformers by way of a combined theoretical framework that considers franchise changes in relation to both ‘world-building’ and ‘brand-building’. While each concept has gained increased scholarly attention recently, they are rarely or only superficially combined in the existent literature on media franchising. The paper argues that this combination of theory allows us to, on the one hand, understand how franchises like Transformers are constituted both as ‘story-worlds’ and ‘brand-worlds’, and, on the other hand, detect potential power asymmetries in the industry/fan relationship. The Transformers case study makes evident that the processes of world-building and brand-building are not always easy to combine in ways that satisfy both companies and audiences.
