This book brings together carefully selected essays on feminism and film with a view to tracing major developments in theory, criticism, and practices from 1973 to the present.
It illuminates the powerful, if controversial, role feminist research has played in the emergence of Film Studies as a discipline during these years. Kaplan reprints pioneering essays that traced the ensuing debates and challenges to key theories that shaped the field. She details the Euro-American contexts within which feminist film theories and practices emerged and traces the changing influences of French, German, and American intellectual movements on feminist film research.
After a wide-ranging introduction that sets the selection of essays in context, readers will find examples of social-role, psychoanalytic, structuralist, post-structuralist, gay and lesbian, postmodern, and postcolonial feminist film criticism, prefaced by introductory notes.
