Synopsis

A Companion to German Cinema offers a wide-ranging collection of essays demonstrating state-of-play scholarship on German cinema at a time during which cinema studies as well as German cinema have once again begun to flourish. * Offers a careful combination of theoretical rigor, conceptual accessibility, and intellectual inclusiveness * Includes essays by well-known writers as well as up-and-coming scholars who take innovative critical approaches to both time-honored and emergent areas in the field, especially regarding race, gender, sexuality, and (trans)nationalism * Distinctive for its contemporary relevance, reorienting the field to the global twenty-first century * Fills critical gaps in the extant scholarship, opening the field onto new terrains of critical engagement

Customer Reviews

"A Companion to German Cinema represents the cutting edge of German cinema studies that will force scholars to rethink their approach to the subject. Conceptually innovative and theoretically rigorous, the collection convincingly claims that the renewal of the field must occur from its margins." -- Roy Grundmann, Boston University "This book is meant to re-envision what has been little seen, unsettle your thinking about German cinema and visual culture, and examine German cinema's socially transformative potential." -- Dora Apel, Wayne State University "Combining a path-breaking exploration of German cinema beyond the canon with a serious contribution to theories of nation and transnationalism, this collection is a much-needed addition to European film scholarship." -- Rosalind Galt, University of Sussex
