Review:

"Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Post-Apocalyptic TV and Film brings forth a substantial collection of scholars who delve into the social construction of gender and race in fantasy, science fiction and apocalyptic stories. Gurr has put together a collection rooted in cultural production and an examination of the intersectionality present in these worlds. This outstanding text will surely be enjoyed by students and fans alike." - Adrienne Trier-Bieniek, Professor and Chair, Sociology, Valencia College, USA

"Pop culture is filled with vampires and zombies, undead hipsters, and dubiously alive suburbanites. For this much-needed collection, Gurr has assembled a stellar set of thoughtful and provocative essays on the politics of post-apocalyptic culture. Ranging from the gender-queer possibilities of Battlestar Gallactica and True Blood to the troubling race, class, and gender politics of The Hunger Games and The Walking Dead, these critics range wide and deep through film and television images of a world in crisis. Students of mass media, speculative fiction, and feminist cultural studies will find this a helpful guidebook through the often confusing but always intriguing post-apocalyptic cultural universe." - Suzanna Danuta Walters, Director, Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, Northeastern University, USA and author of The Tolerance Trap: How God, Genes, and Good Intentions are Sabotaging Gay Equality

"Barbara Gurr has done a fantastic job putting this collection together. The chapters are well-written, highly engaging, and cover a wide array of topics. Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Post-Apocalyptic TV and Film will make a great springboard for reflection and conversation in a range of social science, gender or media studies classes, and students are sure to enjoy reading it." - Patricia Leavy, PhD, author of Fiction as Research Practice and Method Meets Art, www.patricialeavy.com

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. 208 pages. This book offers critical analyses of the roles of race, gender, and sexuality in the post-apocalyptic visions of early twenty-first century film and television shows. Contributors examine the production, reproduction, and re-imagination of some of our most deeply held human ideals through sociological, anthropological, historical, and feminist approaches. Television shows and films as seemingly diverse as The Walking Dead, Falling Skies, Battlestar Galactica, The Road, and Stake Land share both narrative and thematic concerns about the future (and perhaps past) of humanity, how we know who we are, and what we truly value most, but examine these concerns through stories that leave us both entertained and alternately comforted and a little bit anxious. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9781137501509
