Genre Matters by Garin Dowd

Book Description

The term "genre" is used in a huge range of disciplines and media. Yet might this ostensibly shared usage mask a host of varying significations? This interdisciplinary collection of essays examines the role and meaning of genre across the humanities. Subjects covered include: translation and adaptation; animation; critical theory; literature; film and television; theatre and dance; and art history.

Genre Trajectories by Garin Dowd Genre Trajectories, Hardback (August 2015)

This book provides a fresh interdisciplinary perspective on genre and identifies developments in genre studies in the early 21st century. Genre approaches are applied to examine a fascinating range of texts including ancient Greek poems, Holocaust visual and literary texts, contemporary Hollywood films, selfies, melodrama, and classroom practices.
