Precocious Charms by Gaylyn Studlar Precocious Charms, Paperback (February 2013)

Examines how Hollywood defined and constructed female stars as especially young - as juvenated - during its long half century as the most influential and popular media influence on America's cultural imagination. This study reveals the unexpected intersections between American film and culture.

Visions of the East by Gaylyn Studlar Visions of the East, Paperback (December 1997)

'Visions of the East' uses Edward Said's framework and more recent developments in colonialist and post-colonial studies to explore orientalism in a wide range of films, including 'Indochine', 'Madame Butterfly' and Disney's 'Aladdin'.
