Description - Feminist Film Studies - Writing the Woman into Cinema by Janet McCabe
Feminist Film Studies provides an introduction to feminist film theory as a discourse from the early seventies to the present. Janet McCabe traces the broad ranging knowledges produced by feminist film scholarship, from formalist readings and psychoanalytical approaches to debates initiated by cultural studies, race and queer theory. This book thus aims to document a dynamic critical field, charting the numerous feminist interventions, and to critically think about how the social, political and cultural contexts informed debates and shaped the writing of a feminist film theory.
