  • Culinary Entertainment, Creative Labor, and the Reterritorialization of
           White Masculinity
    • Abstract: In her account of the "post-racial mystique," Catherine R. Squires observes that "the idea of racial innocence is reinforced in contemporary media, which suggest that there really is no more work to be done by the everyday citizen to reduce inequalities."1 Clearly, the rhetoric of a postracial United States—prominent during Barack Obama's presidency—obscured as much as it revealed. Serving to mark change, or the passing of time at least, it nevertheless remains dangerously ahistorical. Comparable ahistorical markers are evident in twenty-firstcentury assertions that, in one way or another, Western cultures have seen the "end of men."2 What is striking when we aggregate the omissions of postracial, end-of-men ...

  • Representation without Recognition: A Survey of Arab American Images in
           Egyptian Cinema
    • Abstract: Cinema is a powerful tool of cultural production. Whether in the United States or the Arab world, cinema functions within nationalist projects that narrate the American and the Arab nations, while also using their portrayal of Others in order to construct and strengthen their own identities.Since the 1970s, Hollywood's imagination of the Arab presence in the United States has developed as a foreign policy concern in such films as Network (Sidney Lumet, 1976), The Next Man (Richard Sarafian, 1976), Rollover (Alan Pakula, 1981), and Power (Sidney Lumet, 1986), or as a national security threat, as in Black Sunday (John Frankenheimer, 1977), Wrong Is Right (Richard Brooks, 1982), Terror in Beverly Hills (John Myhers ...

  • Facing the Camera: Black Actors and Direct Address in Independent Films of
           the 1960s
    • Abstract: In 1963, Film Comment magazine featured actor Hugh Hurd on the cover in an arresting image from Shiiku (The Catch), a 1961 film directed by Nagisa Oshima that had yet to be released in the United States.1 Squatting, with his arms clasping his knees, Hurd leans forward from a dimly lit background and stares directly at the camera. Light reflects off the damp, dark skin of his forehead and the chalky knees of the army uniform he wears. The issue pairs a long interview with Hurd, much of it devoted to his work in John Cassavetes's 1959 film Shadows, with a short piece on an independent film then being shot by Ben Maddow in New York, An Affair of the Skin (1963). In that article, a photograph of Diana Sands accompanies ... Read More

  • Moving Mountains: Glacial Contingency and Modernity in the Bergfilm
    • Abstract: The 1920s and 1930s witnessed a sharp rise in the popularity of alpine sports and tourism in Europe and North America, enabled by advances in transportation technology and furthered by the dissemination of photographs, films, and travel literature set in mountainous regions.1 In Germany, enthusiasm for these activities was such that scholars have referred to a "cult of mountains" during the period.2 Emerging from this context, a minor genre of German film called the Bergfilm, or "mountain film," tapped into audiences' seemingly insatiable demand for alpine material.3 Pioneered by the German geologist-turned-filmmaker Dr. Arnold Fanck, mountain films showcase remarkable cinematography in spectacular natural ...

  • "Overlook the Poem, but Look the Picture Over": On the History of Poetry
           and American Silent Film
    • Abstract: Between 1897 and 1922, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "The Village Blacksmith" was adapted to film at least seven times. At least five versions of his poem Evangeline were produced between 1908 and 1929, and four versions of his Song of Hiawatha were made between 1903 and 1913. John Greenleaf Whittier's "Maud Muller" found its way to screen five times between 1909 and 1928. Alfred Lord Tennyson's "The Charge of the Light Brigade" was adapted three times between 1898 and 1914, and at least four versions of Tennyson's Enoch Arden were released between 1911 and 1916. All told, the Internet Movie Database affords Long-fellow forty-four writing credits; Whittier, sixteen; and Tennyson, thirty-six.As such titles and ... Read More

  • Nightmares of a Nation: Israeli Horror-Satires Rabies and Big Bad Wolves
    • Abstract: More than a dozen horror films have been produced in Israel since 2011. Their emergence is not without irony, given the prevalence of horrifying violence in Israel/Palestine, beginning with Palestinian dispossession by Europeans in 1948; through military attacks by Egypt, Jordan, and Syria in 1967; and continuing today. Supernatural horrors might seem superficial by comparison to these very real horrors. The release of these films thus marks a new moment, both in Israeli film history and in the history of cinematic representations of Israel/Palestine.1 Israeli producers and distributors may be taking advantage of horror's global popularity, but a new generation of Israeli filmmakers is reworking global horror ...

  • The Internet Suggests: Film, Recommender Systems, and Cultural Mediation
    • Abstract: Has there ever been a medium as hyped or hated as the internet' Of course, historians have shown that every new communications system, whether the telegraph, telephone, cinema, radio, broadcast television, or cable television, has inspired magical thinking and anxious moral panics about its supposed influence on users' lives and the body politic.1 But none of these prior innovations enjoyed the internet's do-it-yourself generation-and-dissemination dynamics to promote and revile itself, at least since the late 1990s, when cyberspace (remember that') expanded widely outside military installations and universities. That I and many of this journal's readers were intellectually and politically conscious at its birth ... Read More

  • Why It Matters that Black Men and Queer Women Invented Digital Remix
           Culture
    • Abstract: Black men and queer women invented digital remix culture. In the mid- to late 1980s, Black men developed and popularized digital sampling, a technique of extracting segments from existing recordings and using them to form the musical tracks of hip-hop songs. In the 1990s, queer women founded and populated the first wave of online fan-fiction communities. While many non-Black and nonmale people have made significant contributions to sampling, and nonqueer and nonfemale people have participated heavily in fan production, digital sampling and fan fiction gave rise to the remix culture that has proliferated and thrived on the internet primarily through the creative labor of minority musical and fiction artists.The ...

  • Giant Pools of Content: Theorizing Aggregation in Online Media
           Distribution
    • Abstract: It has been fifteen years since Wired magazine editor Chris Anderson first introduced the concept of the "long tail" for describing how the contemporary online media environment was reshaping the production and consumption of media content and other cultural products.1 In economic terms, the basic premise of the long tail is that the internet lowers the barriers to entry found in traditional media distribution, such as channel capacity constraints in radio and television broadcasting, shelf-space limitations in physical bricks-andmortar retail stores, and editorial gatekeepers. Online, any and all content can be made available regardless of its origins or popularity, and digital search technology and recommendation ... Read More

  • Networks before the Internet
    • Abstract: The story of the internet's creation usually goes something like this: In the early 1960s an engineer working for the RAND Corporation, Paul Baran, published an eleven-part memorandum titled On Distributed Communications, which outlined the possibility of "packet switching."1 Baran claimed that distributed, networked telecommunications would allow military communication to persist in the wake of a catastrophic attack, something he stressed given the seemingly imminent threat of nuclear war. Influenced by Baran's models, the Department of Defense and universities across the United States collaborated to create ARPANET, a packet-switching network designed to share physical computer resources among universities, even ...

  • Media Studies and the Internet
    • Abstract: In November 1969, an SDS Sigma 7 computer at the University of California, Los Angeles, and an SDS 940 computer at Stanford were connected via telephone for the first permanent host-to-host connection of ARPANET, the US Department of Defense's project to build a dispersed computer network.1 This initial connection would grow over the coming years to form the physical and logistical infrastructure of what eventually became known as the internet, encompassing technologies and technological discourses at the global level. Along the way, new communication systems, codes, and protocols were developed (and just as important, evangelized) that fundamentally recast the functions and expectations of media culture. Like ...

  • Mock Classicism: Latin American Film Comedy, 1930–1960 by Nilo
           Couret (review)
    • Abstract: Comedy is a genre often said not to travel well. Undeterred, Nilo Couret declares in the opening pages of Mock Classicism, "This book not only discusses where comedy is from but also what it says and what it does."1 Couret's book addresses the question of how extremely popular, commercially successful films negotiate local and global cultural influences. His central thesis is that such films function as responses to modernization from the periphery. As the author writes, "Mock Classicism addresses the impasse in film studies regarding how to speak about local cultural practice in nonessentialist terms and avoids producing world cinema either as defensive authentic cultural expression or as derivative of foreign ...

  • Inhospitable World: Cinema in the Time of the Anthropocene by Jennifer Fay
           (review)
    • Abstract: Experts agree that we have entered an era of dangerous uncertainty, but they cannot agree when. Some say it started with the Agricultural Revolution, twelve thousand to fifteen thousand years ago. Others cite the Industrial Revolution or the detonation of the first atomic bomb. Still others dispute that the epoch we are living in deserves a new name at all. As I write, the International Commission on Stratigraphy has yet to adopt the term "Anthropocene." So, the subtitle of Jennifer Fay's elegant new book, Inhospitable World: Cinema in the Time of the Anthropocene, raises a question: "When'" At the same time, it marks her study as belonging precisely to the present.The past several years have been boom times for ...

  • House Full: Indian Cinema and the Active Audience by Lakshmi Srinivas
           (review)
    • Abstract: The title of Lakshmi Srinivas's provocative 2016 book, House Full: Indian Cinema and the Active Audience, positions the work as a revision of one of cinema and media studies' most critiqued analytical categories. The "active audience" is most commonly associated with audience studies research that emerged in the 1970s and 1980s amid heated debates about the nature of structure and agency, the political stakes of research, and the perceived overreach of postmodernism in media studies. Such debates reflected a bifurcated field, divided into cultural studies and political economy approaches. The former located the power of meaning at the point of reception—audiences were no longer "passive" receptacles of media texts ... Read More

  • Amateur Movie Making: Aesthetics of the Everyday in New England Film,
           1915–1960 ed. by Martha J. McNamara and Karan Sheldon, and: Main Street
           Movies: The History of Local Film in the United States by Martin L.
           Johnson (review)
    • Abstract: On Main Street in Bucksport, Maine, sits the 1916 Alamo Theatre, home of Northeast Historic Film (NHF), an archive founded in 1984 with the aim of preserving New England's moving image heritage. In its over thirty-year history, its success has been an inspiration to other regional archives. NHF collections are featured in two recent publications from Indiana University Press. Martha J. McNamara and Karan Sheldon's edited collection Amateur Movie Making draws exclusively on the archive's holdings, and Martin Johnson's far-reaching study of local film culture Main Street Movies makes use of NHF's "movie queen" films—films that used a template scenario in which a successful Hollywood actress returns to her hometown ...

  • Artificial Darkness: An Obscure History of Modern Art and Media by Noam M.
           Elcott (review)
    • Abstract: In the beginning there was nothing, and then there was artificial darkness. This, in several respects, is the thesis of Noam M. Elcott's book, which indeed begins by quoting Genesis. A series of arguments about the critical role that darkness played in early cinema and modernism follow, all intelligently formulated, elegantly constructed, and engagingly presented, though less groundbreaking than the author wants us to believe. An exquisitely illustrated book, Artificial Darkness: An Obscure History of Modern Art and Media traces the relationship between constructed darkness and artificial light, privileging the former by obscuring the latter. It focuses on an oft-studied set of objects: the magic lantern ... Read More
