The Western in the Global South, Hardback Book

The Western in the Global South Hardback

Edited by MaryEllen Higgins, Rita Keresztesi, Dayna Oscherwitz

Description

The Western in the Global South investigates the Western film genre's impact, migrations, and reconfigurations in the Global South.

Contributors explore how cosmopolitan directors have engaged with, appropriated, and subverted the tropes and conventions of Hollywood and Italian Westerns, and how Global South Westerns and Post-Westerns in particular address the inequities brought about by postcolonial patriarchy, globalization and neoliberalism.

The book offers a wide range of historical engagements with the genre, from African, Caribbean, South and Southeast Asian, Central and South American, and transnational directors.

The contributors employ interdisciplinary cultural studies approaches to cinema, integrating aesthetic considerations with historical, political, and gender studies readings of the international appropriations and U.S. re-appropriations of the Western genre.
