9780340677230: Reinventing Film Studies

This anthology of specially-commissioned essays introduces the film student to some of the central questions and debates that have concerned the development of film studies. Written by a team of noted scholars, the collection focuses on issues that confront us today, assessing the impact on the discipline of recent technological, cultural, and social developments; challenging received thinking, and reinventing film studies for the post-film era. In each of five thematic sections, early essays open up key problems, issues, and debates while a case study offers concrete examples of what various approaches can deliver. Covering all major topics and fully up-to-date, this reader will be a key text for all serious undergraduate and graduate students who want to understand where film is going in its second century.

About the Author:

Christine Gledhill is Professor in Film Studies, at the University of Sunderland, UK.

Review:

“At this moment of technological change, film studies is entering an exciting new phase in which it faces many challenges, not least the demand that it reinvent itself once again. This stimulating anthology will play an indispensable part in that process, and I have no hesitation in recommending it.” ―Pam Cook, University of Southampton

“In this rich collection, a large and varied group of prominent scholars covers the state of the field in Film Studies. The book presents the reader with a dynamic tissue of discussions, positions and proposals that are methodological, theoretical, historiographic, aesthetic. and political. This is the kind of constellation that originally energized the relatively young discipline of Film Studies, but even in its references to the history of film scholarship there is nothing nostalgic about Reinventing Film Studies. Its writers are some of the most innovative and influential figures in the field, and their accounts of the present are fundamentally aimed at mapping future directions. Their contributions are at once authoritative, rigorous and polemical. This volume will be a central reference point for anyone concerned with film and media scholarship for years to come.” ―Philip Rosen, Brown University

“There is no other book like this one currently available.” ―Donald Cameron McManus, Franklin and Marshall College
