This text examines the complex forces pushing and constraining technological developments in cinema. It contests the view that technological advance is simply the result of scientific progress. Rather, the author argues that social forces control the media technology agenda at every stage.

From the Back Cover:


Why is the cinema 100 years old, and not 120 or 150  years old? Why do Kodak film stocks have such trouble capturing non-Caucasian skin tones? Why did professionals wait thirty years and more before widely adopting 16mm film?
 
Technologies of Seeing is a breakthrough in analysis of the idealogical and aesthetic forces central to the historical development of film and television. Brian Winston refutes the argument that technological advance is merely the result of scientific process and demonstrates the ways in which social forces control media technology, and shape the agenda at every stage.

He has held senior academic posts at UK National Film and Television School, New York University, Pennsylvania State University, the University of Wales (Cardiff), Westminster University and the University of Lincoln where, before his present position, he was a Pro-Vice Chancellor.
