What is it about?
This encyclopedia piece is inspired by my past work with Jonathan Schroeder on Disney as well as many works of Fuat FIRAT (some with me, also some good works with Ebru Ulusoy) on postmodern and simulated spaces. - Nikhilesh Dholakia
Why is it important?
There is a really substantial literature on Disney and Disneyfication, mostly from postmodern perspectives. This piece in the 'Encyclopedia of Consumer Culture', and the associated links on this Kudos page, provide introductory portals.
