Description - New Vocabularies in Film Semiotics by Robert Stam
New Vocabularies in Film Semiotics provides a comprehensive lexicon of semiotic concepts. It defines over 500 critical terms and describes how they have been used, building a film semiotics dictionary. The authors address key aspects of contemporary semiotic and cultural debate - Genette's narratology, the feminism of Mary Ann Doane, Bakhtinian concepts and the work of Jean Baudrillard. The book explores linguistically-oriented terminology in cinema studies; the semiotics of film narrative; the psycho-semiology of the cinema; and intertextuality, discourse and transtextuality. References to individual films drawn from the work of a wide range of directors including Orson Welles, D.W. Griffiths, Alain Resnais, Jean-Luc Godard, Alfred Hitchcock, Jean Cocteau and Chantal Akerman illustrate the concepts under discussion.
