Review in Studies in 20th and 21st Century Literature (2010)
Contributor

Situating the Feminist Gaze and Spectatorship in Postwar Cinema was recently reviewed in Studies in 20th and 21st Century Literature by Professor Marzia Caporale of the University of Scranton. According to Professor Caporale, “ultimately, Situating the Feminist Gaze and Spectatorship in Postwar Cinema represents a fresh and innovating addition to existing theories and methods of critical and aesthetical inquiry into women and cinema. The variety of theoretical models used by the contributors in this volume suggests that the feminist gaze today can and should be revisited from a de-centered, de-hierarchisized position. Perhaps, as some of the authors imply, a Deleuzian perspective which allows for multiple horizontal readings rather than a vertical, dual interpretive paradigm would be a more appropriate mode of investigation. By advocating a non-monolithic approach to feminist and postfeminist cinema, the book successfully ties together multiple points of view and effectively rewrites the discourse on the gaze using a new language without rejecting the old.”
