Furious Feminisms : Alternate Routes on Mad Max: Fury Road, Paperback / softback Book

Furious Feminisms : Alternate Routes on Mad Max: Fury Road Paperback / softback

Part of the Forerunners: Ideas First series

Paperback / softback


A provocative peek into this complicated film as a space for subversion, activism, and imaginative powerWhile both fans and foes point to Mad Max: Fury Road's feminist credentials, Furious Feminisms asks: is there really anything feminist or radical happening on the screen?

The four authors-from backgrounds in art history, American literature, disability studies, and sociology-ask what is possible, desirable, or damaging in theorizing feminism in the contested landscape of the twenty-first century.

Can we find beauty in the Anthropocene? Can power be wrested from a violent system without employing and perpetuating violence?

This experiment in collaborative criticism weaves multiple threads of dialogue together to offer a fresh perspective on our current cultural moment.

Forerunners: Ideas First Short books of thought-in-process scholarship, where intense analysis, questioning, and speculation take the lead
