Description - Film Studies Reader by Peter Hutchings

Ranging from the mass culture critics to post-colonial and queer theory, this film reader provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the main theoretical approaches within film studies. It provides students with an opportunity to engage with primary sources in the form of edited extracts from the key critics. It also provides a general introduction and chapter introductions which help to locate the extracts in historical context, and explains their contribution to, and interventions in, debates within the study of film. The intervention of cultural studies is important to much contemporary work in film, and the editors lay particular stress on an awareness of current transformations in approaches to film. Jancovich and Hollows have previously edited another text, "Approaches to Popular Film".
