Book Description

20 July 2013
Much ground has been covered in terms of (post)feminist analyses of popular film and television, and box office successes such as Bridget Jones's Diary and television phenomena such as Sex and the City have become established parts of the now canonical critical texts on postfeminism, media and popular culture. By analyzing the negotiation of femininities and masculinities within contemporary Hollywood cinema, by charting trends in film production and media reception, and by focusing on the largely neglected intersections between postfeminism and queer theory, Postfeminism and Contemporary Hollywood Cinema presents diverse interrogations of popular cinema. The chapters in this collection position contemporary commercial production as a space where female empowerment is both celebrated and undermined, and signal the necessity of further debate surrounding the formation of gender identity in postmillennial Hollywood cinema.

Product Description

Review

"This is an exciting collection that helps to disentangle the threads of feminism, neo-feminism and postfeminism in contemporary Hollywood cinema. Focusing on emergent masculinities as well as new (and old) femininities and the rise and rise of 'the girl', it helps to illuminate the way gender is figured in popular film. A welcome addition to the field – highly recommended for anyone with an interest in gender at the movies." - Rosalind Gill, Professor of Social and Cultural Analysis, King's College London, UK

"Postfeminism and Contemporary Hollywood Cinema offers a refreshing intervention into scholarship on postfeminism by turning a keen eye to previously neglected, but nevertheless key, areas in which postfeminism operates – including independent film, depictions of masculinities, sports films, and aging – while also offering an up-to-date look at a broad range of popular films. As a result, the collection moves our understanding of postfeminism forward in important and nuanced ways." - Sarah Projansky, Professor of Film, University of Utah, USA
