Women Do Genre in Film and Television, Hardback Book

Women Do Genre in Film and Television Hardback

Edited by Mary Harrod

Part of the Routledge Research in Cultural and Media Studies series


Winner of first Prize in the BAFTSS Best Edited Collection competition, this volume examines how different generations of women work within the genericity of audio-visual storytelling not necessarily to `undo' or `subvert' popular formats, but also to draw on their generative force.

Recent examples of filmmakers and creative practitioners within and outside Hollywood as well as women working in non-directing authorial roles remind us that women are in various ways authoring commercially and culturally impactful texts across a range of genres.

Put simply, this volume asks: what do women who are creatively engaged with audio-visual industries do with genre and what does genre do with them?

The contributors to the collection respond to this question from diverse perspectives and with different answers, spanning issues of direction, screenwriting, performance and audience address/reception.
