9780415288569: Public Rape: Representing Violation in Fiction and Film (Sussex Studies in Culture and Communication)

Second-wave feminism fought to end the blanket silence shrouding rape and bring it to public attention. Now feminist critics must confront a different issue. In Public Rape Tanya Horeck considers the public investment in images of rape and the figure of the raped woman. Introducing the idea of 'public rape', Horeck looks at how images of rape serve as cultural fantasies of sexual, racial and class difference. Looking at rape in real life as well as in literature and films such as The Accused and Boys Don't Cry, Horek reveals how representations of rape raise vital questions about the relationship between reality and fantasy, and between violence and spectacle

About the Author:

Tanya Horeck is a graduate of Sussex University, now a Lecturer in the School of ARts and Humanities at APU. She has published articles in a number of journals, including 'New Formations.' An article drawn from Tanya's thesis, on which the book will be based, was published in 'The Canadian Review of American Studies,' and subsequently was awarded the 2000 award for the year's best essay.

Review:

"This is a thoroughly absorbing and thought-provoking study of representations of rape across a range of media forms, from Rousseau to reality TV. The questions it raises about the significance of public fantasies of rape in relation to spectatorship and the civic bond make it essential reading for anyone engaged in cultural and media studies."
-Carrie Tarr, Kingston University, UK
""Public Rape is a fascinating study of textual and cinematic representations of rape. On the deepest level, Horeck successfully argues rape discourse to reveal crucial aspects of how we are encouraged to relate to representation, exploring the complex relationships among images of sexual violation and anxieties about spectatorship and rapidly changing visual technologies. This book will change the way in which we think about rape as well as opening new ways of thinking about how representations affect us."
-Amelia Jones, University of Manchester, UK
