LOVF
Reklaw, Jesse, 1971- artist
Seattle, Washington : Fantagraphics Books Inc., [2016]
"LOVF is the sketchbook companion of a man literally losing his mind. Homeless and broke after giving all his stuff to punk rock heroin dealers, he ends up off his meds and on a secret quest from Portland to Brooklyn, DC, LA, San Francisco, and Seattle. Jammed with cartoons, mad schemes, psychedelic portraits, and notes from the road, LOVF is a travel journal, and a mirror of the post-traumatic dreamworld its author can't escape from. After losing his house, his job, his partner, and his best friend, he is triple-diagnosed with bipolar mood disorder, PTSD, and crippling chronic pain. As a self-professed over-achiever, he made sure things only got worse from there. Getting beat up in the street, running from the law, getting dragged out of a creek and into a mental hospital ... it's a Kerouacian meltdown of cross-hatching, spattered marker, crayons, glitter, tape, nail polish, white-out, fingerpainting, rain, wine, stickers, and word balloons, like the found diary of a homeless crazyman, turned into a comic book."--

Modos de salir del hogar paterno : representaciones familiares y derivas juveniles en el Nuevo Cine Argentino (1996-2005)
Cartoccio, Eduardo, author
Ciudad Autónoma de Buenos Aires : Libraria, [2016]
"En el cine argentino, al menos desde los años sesenta, un vasto ciclo de relatos de encierro familiar y huida juvenil abordan la temática de la juventud y el problema del sujeto que busca su destino, su lugar en el mundo. En este contexto, el Nuevo Cine Argentino de los años noventa y dos mil elabora una respuesta relativamente original, distinta al camino sin salida de la huida juvenil. A la pregunta sobre cómo salir del hogar paterno, responde "circulando': no escapando, no buscando el territorio ideal y soñado en el tiempo fulgurante del porvenir, sino creando una circulación permanente y, dentro de ella, un tipo de territorialidad y de temporalidad diferentes. Al mismo tiempo, "salir del hogar paterno" podría significar también salir del campo organizado por la mirada paterna y articular otro punto de vista sobre los relatos, más afín a la posición de los personajes juveniles. En este sentido más amplio, de Rapado a Los guantes mágicos, pasando por Sólo por hoy, Tan de repente, Nadar solo, La ciénaga o La niña santa, ¿se podrá vislumbrar un modo distinto de salir de ese a la vez amado y temido hogar?

The Cambridge companion to literature and the posthuman
edited by Bruce Clarke, Manuela Rossini
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2017
"The Cambridge Companion to Literature and the Posthuman is the first work of its kind to gather diverse critical treatments of the posthuman and posthumanism together in a single volume. Fifteen scholars from six different countries address the historical and aesthetic dimensions of posthuman figures alongside posthumanism as a new paradigm in the critical humanities. The three parts and their chapters trace the history of the posthuman in literature and other media, including film and video games; and identifies major political, philosophical, and techno-scientific issues raised in the literary and cinematic narratives of the posthuman and posthumanist discourses"--

The novel is the most important form of Western art. It represents the totality of life; it is the flagship that literature lines up against systematic thought, against science and philosophy. Over the past two hundred years the novel has inspired more essays and reflections than any other aesthetic form, and contributed profoundly in conveying ideas of social life and patterns of behavior. Through the novel, Western literature expanded the range of its themes and possibilities, and has come to tell any story in any way; through the novel, Western literature has been able to delineate the ordinary existence of common people in a serious way, expressing the spirit of an age in which nothing matters except the single individual life. Nearly a century after the György Lukács' essay of the same name, this book offers a comprehensive interpretation of the novel as a cultural phenomenon and as a sign and symptom of the modern condition. This is a work of comparative literature covering four centuries of Western culture, but also a book about our epoch, about its values and its genealogy.--

Romantic prophecy and the resistance to historicism
Bundock, Christopher M., 1980- author
London : University of Toronto Press, [2016]
Secularization and the new ends of history -- Prophecy within the limits of reason alone -- Ghostlier demarcations : mysticism, trauma, anachronism -- Beyond the sign of history : prophetic semiotics and the future's reflection -- The future of an allusion : temporalization and figure in lyrical drama -- Auguries of experience : impossible history and infernal redemption -- The preface and other false starts : prophesying the book to come -- "a woman clothed in the sun" : female prophecy and catastrophe.

"In this remarkably erudite work, Christopher Bundock argues that the repeated failure of prophecy in Romantic thought is creative and enables a renewable potential for expression across disciplines. By focusing on new readings of canonical Romantic authors as well as their more obscure works, Bundock makes a bold intervention into major concepts such as Romantic imagination, historicity, and mediation. Romantic Prophecy and the Resistance to Historicism glides across Kant's Swedenborgian dreams to Mary Shelley's Last Man and reveals how Romanticism reinvents history by turning prophecy inside out."--

Captain Marvel and the art of nostalgia
Cremins, Brian, author
Jackson : University Press of Mississippi, [2016]
"Tiny flashes of light": comic books, nostalgia, and Billy Batson's America -- "A fabric of illusion": the art of C.C. Beck -- Otto Binder and the secret life of Mr. Tawny, the talking tiger -- "Brother, that ain't imaginary!": Billy Batson and World War II -- Steamboat's America -- Wertham's little goblins: Captain Marvel, fanzines, and the art of nostalgia.

"Billy Batson discovers a secret in a forgotten subway tunnel. There the young man meets a wizard who offers a precious gift: a magic word that will transform the newsboy into a hero. When Billy says, "Shazam!," he becomes Captain Marvel, the World's Mightiest Mortal, one of the most popular comic book characters of the 1940s. This book tells the story of that hero and the writers and artists who created his magical adventures. The saga of Captain Marvel is also that of artist C.C. Beck and writer Otto Binder, one of the most innovative and prolific creative teams working during the Golden Age of comics in the United States. While Beck was the technician and meticulous craftsman, Binder contributed the still, human voice at the heart of Billy's adventures. Later in his career, Beck, like his friend and colleague Will Eisner, developed a theory of comic art expressed in numerous articles, essays, and interviews. A decade after Fawcett Publications settled a copyright infringement lawsuit with Superman's publisher, Beck and Binder became legendary, celebrated figures in comic book fandom of the 1960s. What Beck, Binder, and their readers share in common is a fascination with nostalgia, which has shaped the history of comics and comics scholarship in the United States. Billy Batson's America, with its cartoon villains and talking tigers, remains a living archive of childhood memories, so precious but elusive, as strange and mysterious as the boy's first visit to the subway tunnel. Taking cues from Beck's theories of art and from the growing field of memory studies, Captain Marvel and the Art of Nostalgia explains why we read comics and, more significantly, how we remember them and the America that dreamed them up in the first place"--

Open to debate : how William F. Buckley put liberal America on the Firing Line
Hendershot, Heather, author
New York, NY : Broadside Books, an imprint of HarperCollins Publishers, 2016
Preface: The Making of William F. Buckley Jr. -- Introduction: The Making of Firing Line : A "Bare Knuckled Intellectual Brawl" with "No Production Values!" -- Forging a New Image for the Right : Goldwater, Extremism, and Stylish Conservatism -- "Apodictic All the Way Through" : Firing Line Takes on Communism -- From "We Shall Overcome" to "Shoot, Don't Loot" : Firing Line Confronts Civil Rights and Black Power -- Chivalrous Pugilism : How Firing Line tried to K.O. Women's Lib -- Tripping Over Tricky Dick -- From the Mashed Potato Circuit to the Oval Office : Ronald Reagan, Firing Line, and the Triumph of the Right -- Conclusion: In Praise of Honest Intellectual Combat.

"Few conservatives are as revered and admired as William F. Buckley. Buckley is best known for founding National Review, the flagship journal of the right. But his long-running talk show Firing Line was equally important, because it allowed him to reach beyond the conservative enclave and engage millions of mainstream Americans. When Firing Line premiered in 1966, only two years after Barry Goldwater's blow-out defeat in the 1964 presidential election, it seemed as if liberalism had decisively won. Buckley's liberal guests clearly thought so. Yet he gamely and serenely soldiered on in his role as a public contrarian, making the case for conservative ideas and assuming that his side would ultimately win because its arguments were better. In time he was proven correct. Buckley's show--challenging, exciting, and always unpredictable--engaged the most urgent issues of the day and paraded the cream of America's intellectual class across the screen. The guest list reads like a who's who of midcentury American liberalism-David Susskind, Gore Vidal, Norman Mailer, along with major conservative figures like Henry Kissinger and Milton Friedman. It was also responsible for inspiring several generations of conservatives"--

Drivetime : literary excursions in automotive consciousness
Pearce, Lynne, author
Edinburgh : Edinburgh University Press, [2016]
What sorts of things do we think about when we're driving - or being driven - in a car? Drivetime seeks to answer this question by drawing upon a rich archive of British and American texts from 'the motoring century' (1900-2000), paying particular attention to the way in which the practice of driving shapes and structures our thinking. While recent sociological and psychological research has helped explain how drivers are able to think about 'other things' while performing such a complex task, little attention has, as yet, been paid to the form these cognitive and affective journeys take. Pearce uses her close readings of literary texts - ranging from early twentieth-century motoring periodicals, Modernist and inter-war fiction, American 'road-trip' classics, and autobiography - in order to model different types of 'driving-event' and, by extension, the car's use as a means of phenomenological encounter, escape from memory, meditation, problem-solving and daydreaming.

Laid waste
Gfrörer, Julia, artist
Seattle, Washington, USA : Fantagraphics Books, Inc., 2016
In a plague-ravaged medieval city, survival is a harsher fate than death. As corpses accumulate around her, Agnes, a young widow possessed of supernatural strength, must weigh her obligations to the dead and dying against her desire to protect what little remains. Laid Waste is a graphic novella about love and kindness among vermin in the putrid miasma at the end of the world. As with her evocative debut book, Black is the Color, Julia Gfrörer's delicate, gothic drawing style perfectly complements the period era of the book's setting, bringing the lyricism and romanticism of her prose to the fore.

It also examines the production, reproduction and distribution of popular fiction as it carves out space for itself in transnational marketplaces and across different media entertainment systems; and it discusses the careers of popular authors and the various investments in popular fiction by readers and fans. This book will be indispensable for anyone with a serious interest in this prolific but highly distinctive literary field.

The gaze of drifting skies : a treasury of bird's-eye view cartoons

Seattle, WA : Fantagraphics Books, 2016
The breathtaking lightness of seeing / by Jonathan Barli -- Small town U.S.A. -- The big city -- The battlefields -- Abroad -- Back home -- Lands of fantasy -- Once again, in color -- Artists.

"If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a panoramic bird's-eye view is worth a million! Depictions of bustling crowds from magisterial heights appeared regularly in newspapers and magazines in the early twentieth century. Whether it was a carnival, a circus, a cook out, a baseball game, a city street, a train station, a parade, or an epic battle scene, artists depicted the everyday life of urban and country settings. This collection features the largest cast of characters in history. It showcases the remarkable beauty and breadth of this soon-to-be-rediscovered visual genre."--Back cover.

The documentary art of filmmaker Michael Rubbo
Jones, D. B. 1940- author
Calgary, Alberta, Canada : University of Calgary Press, [2017]
"Michael Rubbo's groundbreaking work has had a deep and enduring impact on documentary filmmaking worldwide, though his name has remained relatively unknown. In The Documentary Art of Michael Rubbo, author D.B. Jones traces Rubbo's filmmaking from his days as a film student at Stanford, through his twenty years at the National Film Board of Canada, where Rubbo developed his distinct documentary style. Jones then describes Rubbo's post-NFB venture into feature film directing, followed by Rubbo's return to his native Australia, first as an executive with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation, and later as a director of feature-length documentaries and maker of short, personal films for YouTube. Exploring locales from Montreal to Vietnam, topics as diverse as plastic surgery and French Marxism, and from interviewing Margaret Atwood to documenting a failed attempt to interview Fidel Castro, Rubbo's wide-ranging work establishes his innovative, personal, lyric, and spontaneous documentary style. In The Documentary Art of Michael Rubbo D.B. Jones reveals not only the depth of meaning in Rubbo's films, but also the depth of their influence on filmmaking itself."--

The birth of a nation : Nat Turner and the making of the movement
edited by Nate Parker
New York : 37 Ink/Atria, 2016
The birth of a movement. My journey with Nat Turner / by Nate Parker -- A history of resistance. The unbroken chain of enslaved African resistance and rebellion / by Erica Armstrong Dunbar and Daina Ramey Berry -- An illustrated time line of American slave revolts / by Ruramai Musekiwa -- An illustrated time line of the life of Nat Turner / by Ruramai Musekiwa -- Further exploring the narrative. Slavery and (in)justice during the Nat Turner Rebellion: history and legacy of the "rule of law" in America / by Alfred L. Brophy -- Nat Turner at the crossroads: African iconography and cosmologies in the Birth of a nation / by Kelley Fanto Deetz -- The film. A collection of stills/ sketches/production -- The crew reflects / edited by Dominic Patten -- Commentary from the cast / edited by Briana Rodriguez -- Nat Turner matters. Why Nat Turner matters: the importance of history in contemporary consciousness / by Brian Favors.

"This official tie-in to the highly acclaimed film, The Birth of a Nation, surveys the history and legacy of Nat Turner, the leader of one of the most renowned slave rebellions on American soil, while also exploring Turner's relevance to contemporary dialogues on race relations. Based on astounding events in American history, The Birth of a Nation is the epic story of one man championing the spirit of resistance as he leads a rough-and-tumble group into a revolt against injustice and slavery. Breathing new life into a story that has been rife with controversy and prejudice for over two centuries, the film follows the rise of the visionary Virginian slave, Nat Turner. Hired out by his owner to preach to and placate slaves on drought-plagued plantations, Turner eventually transforms into an inspired, impassioned, and fierce anti-slavery leader. Beautifully illustrated with stills from the movie and original illustrations, the book also features an essay by writer/director, Nate Parker, contributions by members of the cast and crew, and commentary by educator Brian Favors and historians Erica Armstrong Dunbar and Daina Ramey Berry who place Nat Turner and the rebellion he led into historical context. The Birth of a Nation reframes the way we think about slavery and resistance as it explores the passion, determination, and faith that inspired Nat Turner to sacrifice everything for freedom."--

The elocutionists : women, music, and the spoken word
Kimber, Marian Wilson, 1960- author
Urbana : University of Illinois Press, [2017]
"Emerging in the 1850s, elocutionists recited poetry or drama with music to create a new type of performance. The genre--dominated by women--achieved remarkable popularity. Yet the elocutionists and their art fell into total obscurity during the twentieth century. Marian Wilson Kimber restores elocution with music to its rightful place in performance history. Gazing through the lenses of gender and genre, Wilson Kimber argues that these female artists transgressed the previous boundaries between private and public domains. Their performances advocated for female agency while also contributing to a new social construction of gender. Elocutionists, proud purveyors of wholesome entertainment, pointedly contrasted their "acceptable" feminine attributes against those of morally suspect actresses. As Wilson Kimber shows, their influence far outlived their heyday. Women, the primary composers of melodramatic compositions, did nothing less than create a tradition that helped shape the history of American music"--

Selective List of Film Events in Melbourne, 1949-2000 -- Appendix 4. Film Festivals in Melbourne and Sydney, 2015.

This is the first book to offer an in-depth examination of the history, operation, and growth of film festivals as a cultural phenomenon within Australia. Tracing the birth of film festivals in Australia in the 1950s through to their present abundance, it asks why film festivals have prospered as audience-driven spectacles throughout Australia, while never developing the same industry and market foci of their international fellows. Drawing on over sixty-years of archival records, festival commentary, interviews with festival insiders and ephemera, this book opens up a largely uncharted history of film culture activity in Australia. .

"Despite the challenges arising from a limited population size and the difficulty of obtaining adequate funding, the film and television industries of New Zealand have been the source of significant creative achievement and profound cultural influence. Charting their emergence and subsequent development through five decades [this book] examines these two increasingly vibrant cultural and creative industries. Whilst there is a growing body of academic work on the film and television productions which have originated in New Zealand, relatively little exists that examines the specific cultural concerns, institutional objectives, policy directives, and industry practices that have shaped these productions. [This book] aims to fill this gap." -- Back cover.

We'll always have Casablanca : the life, legend, and afterlife of Hollywood's most beloved movie
Isenberg, Noah William, author
New York : W. W. Norton & Company, [2017]
Introduction -- Everybody comes to Rick's -- Usual suspects -- I stick my neck out for nobody -- Such much -- We'll always have Paris -- Play it again -- A beautiful friendship.

"The movie Casablanca was first released in 1942, just two weeks after the city itself surrendered to American troops led by General Patton. The film won Oscars for best picture, best director, and best screenplay, and would go on to enjoy more revival screenings than any other movie in history, and become firmly ensconced in the American cultural imagination. Through extensive research and interviews with filmmakers, critics, family members of the cast and crew, and diehard fans, Isenberg reveals the myths and realities behind Casablanca's production, exploring the transformation of the unproduced stage play into the classic movie. Isenberg particularly focuses on the central role refugees from Hitler's Europe played on the production--nearly all of the actors and actresses cast in Casablanca were immigrants. Filled with fresh insights, Isenberg's book is a magnificent account of what made this movie so popular and why it continues to dazzle audiences seventy-five years after its release." --

The body and the screen : female subjectivities in contemporary women's cinema
Ince, Kate, author
London : Bloomsbury Academic, 2017
Female subjectivity in philosophy and theory -- Feminist film studies and women's cinema after psychoanalysis -- Body -- Look -- Speech -- Performance -- Desire -- Freedom -- Conclusion.

Since the 1980s the number of women regularly directing films has increased significantly in most Western countries: in France, Claire Denis and Catherine Breillat have joined Agnes Varda in gaining international renown, while British directors Lynne Ramsay and Andrea Arnold have forged award-winning careers in feature film. This new volume in the Thinking Cinema series draws on feminist theorists and critics from Simone de Beauvoir on to offer readings of a range of the most important and memorable of these films from the 1990s and 2000s, focusing as it does so on how the films convey women's lives and identities.Mainstream entertainment cinema traditionally distorts the representation of women, objectifying their bodies, minimizing their agency,and avoiding the most important questions about how cinema can 'do justice' to female subjectivity: Kate Ince suggests that the films of independent women directors are progressively redressing the balance, and thereby reinvigorating both the narratives and the formal ambitions of European cinema. Ince uses feminist philosophers to cast a new veil over such films as Sex Is Comedy, Morvern Callar, White Material, and Fish Tank; and includes a timeline ofdevelopments in women's film-making and feminist film theory from 1970 to 2011.

Little mosque on the prairie and the paradoxes of cultural translation
Conway, Kyle, 1977- author
Toronto : University of Toronto Press, [2017]
"In 2007, Little Mosque on the Prairie premiered on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation network. It told the story of a mosque community that worshiped in the basement of an Anglican church. It was a bona fide hit, running for six seasons and playing on networks all over the world. Kyle Conway's textual analysis and in-depth research, including interviews from the show's creator, executive producers, writers, and CBC executives, reveals the many ways Muslims have and have not been integrated into North American television. Despite a desire to showcase the diversity of Muslims in Canada, the makers of Little Mosque had to erase visible signs of difference in order to reach a broad audience. This paradox of 'saleable diversity' challenges conventional ideas about the ways in which sitcoms integrate minorities into the mainstream."--

Woman in Lars von Trier's cinema, 1996-2014

Cham, Switzerland : Palgrave Macmillian, [2016]

Dancer in the Dark: Deploying the Siren, Impairing the Sight -- 5. Dogville: Woman as an Ideological Cinematic Tool -- 6. Manderlay: The Gift, Grace's Desire, and the Collapse of Ideology -- 7. The Deployment of the Impossible Woman in Antichrist -- 8. Besides Melancholia and Beyond Gender: Melancholia -- 9. Conclusion, or, Desire as Law: the Loneliness of Nymphomaniac between Pornography and Narrative.

This book discusses the figure of Woman in Lars von Trier's distinctive cinematic productions from 1996 to 2014. It takes the notorious legacy of violence against women in von Trier's cinema beyond the perceived gender division, elevating the director's image above being a mere provocateur. By raising fundamental questions about woman, sexuality, and desire, Elbeshlawy shows that Trier's cinematic Woman is an attempt at creating an image of a genderless subject that is not inhibited by the confines of ideology and culture. But this attempt is perennially ill-fated. And it is this failure that not only fosters viewing enjoyment but also gives the films their political importance, elevating them above both commendations and condemnations of feminist discourse. Ahmed Elbeshlawy is an independent scholar and occasional lecturer. He is author of America in Literature and Film (2011) and has contributed articles to The Comparatist (2008), the forthcoming Palgrave Handbook to Literature and the City, andFe/Male Bodies (2005/6).

Writers' rights : freelance journalism in a digital age
Cohen, Nicole S., 1980-, author
Chicago : McGill-Queen's University Press, [2016]
"As media industries undergo rapid change, conditions of media work are shifting. The number of journalists working as freelancers globally has exploded. While popular commentary positions freelancers as ideal workers for an information age--adaptable, multiskilled, and entrepreneurial--Nicole S. Cohen argues that freelance media work is becoming increasingly precarious, marked by declining incomes, loss of control over one's work, intense workloads, long hours, and limited access to labour and social protections. Like growing numbers of workers in the media, cultural, and entertainment sectors, freelance journalists are experiencing deepening precarity. The book provides context to the freelance struggles bubbling up as we barrel toward journalism's digital future, and identifies points of contention and movements toward change. Through interviews and a survey of freelancers, Cohen highlights the paradoxes of freelancing, which can be simultaneously precarious and satisfying, risky and rewarding. The book documents the transformation of freelancing from a way for journalists to resist salaried labour in pursuit of autonomy into a strategy for media firms to intensify exploitation of freelance writers' labour power. Cohen examines pressing issues of low pay, restrictive contracts, and unpaid work, and presents four new case studies of freelancers' efforts to collectively transform their conditions. his groundbreaking work offers a timely intervention into current debates about the future of journalism, organizing workers in precarious employment, and the transformation of media work in a digital age, making clear what's at stake for journalism's democratic role when the costs and risks of its production are offloaded onto individuals."--

"Flying couch tells the stories of three unforgettable women. Amy Kurzweil weaves her own coming-of-age as a young Jewish artist into the narrative of her mother, a psychologist, and Bubbe, her grandmother, a World War II survivor who escaped from the Warsaw Ghetto by disguising herself as a gentile. The voices and histories of these wise, hilarious, and very different women create a portrait not only of what it means to be part of a family, but also of how each generation bears the imprint of the past."

Dispossession : a novel of few words
Grennan, Simon, author
London : Jonathan Cape, 2014
"England, 1873. John Caldigate, a young gentleman, gets into debt gambling and decides to try his luck in the gold fields of New South Wales. On the outward journey, he promises to marry Mrs Smith, a divorced actress. Returning home a rich man, John marries Hester, the sweetheart he left behind. Soon, Mrs Smith also returns from Australia, penniless, and claims that she is already his wife. Inspired by Anthony Trollope's 1879 novel John Caldigate, Dispossession embeds the reader in a uniquely wrought experience of the mid-nineteenth century, including the first ever appearance of the Aboriginal Wiradjuri language in a graphic novel. Taking unique advantage of the graphic form to conjure the material world of the Victorian era in a glittering waltz of intense colour and deep shadow, Dispossession is a virtuoso and intensely affecting graphic novel by a master visual storyteller. Simon Grennan is an internationally acclaimed contemporary artist, comics scholar and author of over forty comics and artist's books."--Page 4 of cover.

Soft City
Pushwagner, artist
New York : The New York Review of Books, [2016]
""GOOD MORNING EVERYBODY. . ." So dawns a new day in Soft City, where pill-stuffed citizens sit in traffic, march off to work at Soft Inc., zone out in front of the TV news, and shop, shop, shop. The only graphic novel by the legendary Norwegian pop artist Hariton Pushwagner-- completed in 1975, lost for decades, and never before published in the United States--is a scathing masterpiece in the tradition of Brazil and A Brave New World but with an off-kilter beauty all its own. Pushwagner gives us an epic, exuberantly intricate vision of a single day in a world gone wrong: a brightly smiling, disturbingly familiar dystopia of towering skyscrapers, omnipresent surveillance, and endless, distant war. Every face looks like the next, and language itself has gone soft: "CLEAN BOMB THE HAPPY WAY," blares the morning paper; "Heil Hilton!" barks an overlord on the news. Welcome to Soft City. Now don't be late for work"--

[Lyon] : Lyon BD Festival, [2016]
"Près de 180 ans après sa naissance la bande dessinée ne connaît encore que de très rares héroïnes. La plupart du temps, les modèles d'identification proposés aux lecteurs et lectrices sont en effet des figures masculines. Il ne s'agit pas de dire que les personnages féminins n'existent pas ou que l'imaginaire du 9' art est machiste. Mais leur représentation reste minoritaire et très souvent liée à des stéréotypes convenus les femmes ont leur place en BD aux côtés du héros, prêtes à l'épauler ou à le soigner en cas de coup dur. Elles peuvent également constituer de très bons éléments à séduire. à sauver du danger et même parfois à instruire. Autant de situations où elles deviennent des objets passifs et non des éléments agissants. Réalisé par Lyon BD Organisation et Jc Deveney. Héro(ïne)s réunit auteurs BD et doctorants, pour faire rire et réfléchir en renversant les genres et les représentations."--Page 4 of cover.

New York, NY : Routledge, 2017
Television for Women brings together emerging and established scholars to reconsider the question of 'television for women'. In the context of the 2000s, when the potential meanings of both terms have expanded and changed so significantly, in what ways might the concept of programming, addressed explicitly to a group identified by gender, still matter? This book presents ground-breaking research on historical and contemporary relationships between women and television around the world.
