About this product Product Information More than two thousand amusement parks dotted the American landscape in the early twentieth century, thrilling the general public with the latest in entertainment and motion picture technology. Amusement parks were the playgrounds of the working class, combining numerous, mechanically-based spectacles into one unique, modern cultural phenomenon. Lauren Rabinovitz describes the urban modernity engendered by these parks and their media, encouraging ordinary individuals to sense, interpret, and embody a burgeoning national identity.

As industrialization, urbanization, and immigration upended society before World War I, amusement parks tempered the shocks of racial, ethnic, and cultural conflict while shrinking the distinctions between gender and class.

As she follows the rise of American parks from to , Rabinovitz seizes on a simultaneous increase in cinema and spectacle audiences and connects both to the success of leisure activities in stabilizing society. Critics of the time often condemned parks and movies for inciting moral decline, but in fact they fostered women's independence, racial uplift, and assimilation.

Yet genres, media, and movements frequently define themselves by the practices of spectatorship they invite. Behind this idealized spectator lies its critiqued counterpart: the spectator as static witness and obedient consumer, a socially disembodied, ideologically and physically passive receiver of visual and aural messages.

This latter is a mythic figure, of course, and one with a long history. Here, we bring together a suite of books that examine immersive theatre and its cognates participatory art, performance in virtual and mixed-reality environments, simming, and spectacle to provide more theoretically persuasive arguments for the significance of immersion as a mode of engagement with and within performance. As these examples suggest, immersive spectatorship is not necessarily politically radical or even progressive; it has been and continues to be harnessed to projects of nationalism, neoliberalism, and historical revision.
