  • In Focus: Cripping Cinema and Media Studies: Introduction
    • Abstract: In 1985, the historian Paul Longmore identified the convergence of disability and media as one long process of "screening stereotypes."1 Attentive to the ways disabled people were consistently represented in film, in particular, as either angry and evil villains or inspirational figures for able-bodied characters and viewers, Longmore initiated what might be understood as a "crip" tradition of critiquing, from within disability culture, the impoverished representations that dominant filmic and media forms have bequeathed us. Disabled villains like Captain Hook or Magneto are generally defeated and eliminated at film's end, whereas inspirational figures tend either to "overcome" their disability or to end up dead ...

  • Studying Disability for a Better Cinema and Media Studies
    • Abstract: If you are reading this, you are probably already on board with the study of difference. Gender, critical race theory, class analyses, postcolonialism, or queer studies are a part of your scholarship, or at least a grace note in your graduate education. (If you are not reading this, let us take a moment to say that you should be. You're missing much of the most exciting work in cinema and media studies.)Despite your best intentions, however, you may not have encountered critical studies of media and disability in any meaningful way. It is not just missing from our scholarship; there are few job calls for experts in media and disability, precious few graduate seminars, rarely even a unit on disability in ... Read More

  • It's All the Same Movie: Making Code of the Freaks
    • Abstract: I have developed a reputation among my students as being a "disability wet blanket." Why' Because I "ruin movies" that feature disabled characters. Even though my students make these accusations with tongues firmly in check, I take them seriously as compliments and as evidence of the argument that all movies featuring disabled characters are essentially the same movie. Once they see this sameness, they cannot "unsee" it, and unless they develop resistant viewing strategies, these movies do tend to get ruined. Whether disabled characters at the purported center of these narratives are cured, killed, institutionalized, or heroicized, they all serve the same purpose: to inspire nondisabled characters or viewers, or ...

  • Room for (Materiality's) Maneuver: Reading the Oppositional in Guillermo
           del Toro's The Shape of Water
    • Abstract: In an important work of narrative theory regarding oppositional storytelling, Room for Maneuver: Reading (the) Oppositional (in) Narrative, Ross Chambers argues: "For deprivation of the power to speak is most usually not literal: if one excludes infants and animals, and those who are held incommunicado … what is usually meant by the phrase is exclusion from the powerful positions of 'preexisting,' socially derived authority."1 The idea appears as commonsensical enough: removal of the power to speak usually occurs not in the material sense of being incapable of articulating with a voice but as closure from opportunities to seize narrative authority. Thus, this argument of socially imposed voicelessness enables ... Read More

  • Mediating Syndromes of Postcommunism: Disability, Sex, Race, and Labor

In this club they call me Miss Jackson, because I look like Michael Jackson…. Right now, I hustle…. I hustle too, like my friends…. I came here to find a job, but it did not work out so I began to hustle … it brings more money than work…. I am on the street.These lines figure as an affectively charged introduction to Wiktor Grodecki's documentary Not Angels but Angels (Andělé nejsou andělé), which, together with its sequel Body without Soul (Tělo bez duše; Wiktor Grodecki, 1996), traces the development of sex work and the pornography industry in Prague, and Eastern Europe at large, in the mid-1990s. ...

  • The Many in the One: Depression and Multiple Subjectivities in Inside Out
    • Abstract: It seems ironic to me that the only English-language film I am aware of since Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich (1999) to address multiple subjectivities is a children's film, Pete Docter's Inside Out (2015), a film that troubles the usual way audiences think of the many and the one when it comes to the psyche.1 Being John Malkovich projects one interpretation of multiple subjectivities that occur between the many and the one inside its title character. In Jonze's film, multiple subjectivities mostly play out on a psychical landscape of contested gender and psychotherapy caricature. The film contests commonsensical ideas about oneness as represented via characterial independence, self-awareness, and autonomy; in ... Read More

  • Bright Signals: A History of Color Television by Susan Murray (review)
    • Abstract: Color has been a lively topic of research in various disciplines recently, as evidenced, for instance, by the recent work of Regina Blaszczyk on color in fashion and industrial design, of Nicholas Gaskill on color and modernist literature, and of numerous cinema scholars such as Barbara Flueckiger, Scott Higgins, Carolyn Kane, and Sarah Street.1 In various ways, these historically oriented researchers have been attentive to various technical transitions in color practice from the late nineteenth century to the contemporary moment. Much of this scholarship also displays careful, interdisciplinary, and frequently, intermedial methodologies that situate specific technical changes in relation to broader aesthetic ... Read More

  • Agnès Varda between Film, Photography, and Art by Rebecca J. DeRoo
           (review)
    • Abstract: Rebecca DeRoo, with her timely new monograph, rides a wave of acclaim for nonagenarian Agnès Varda, well underway before her death in March. In 2017, Varda received an honorary award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences; her film with the photographer JR, Visages villages (Faces Places, 2017), was also nominated for Best Documentary Feature. Two years earlier, in 2015, Varda became the first woman to receive an honorary Palme d'Or at the Cannes Film Festival. Varda's remarks in acknowledging these and other recent honors invariably conveyed a disarming mixture of sincere gratitude, clear assertions of authorial purpose, wry commentary on age and gender, and ironic juxtaposition of such accolades to ...

  • Spectacle of Property: The House in American Film by John David Rhodes
           (review)
    • Abstract: Alexis de Tocqueville, writing in the 1830s, famously located the foundation of American democracy in the peace and endurance of the family home, claiming that the American "derives from his own home that love of order which he afterwards carries with him into public affairs."1 Tocqueville's understanding of the private sphere as separate from yet also fundamental to the proper functioning of the public has had a lasting influence on American social and political discourse. It is evident, for example, in the housing reform movement that emerged in the 1840s and 1850s and sought to locate within the home a set of values and ideals that were adequate to a rapidly transforming American society. Almost a century later ... Read More

  • Trap Door: Trans Cultural Production and the Politics of Visibility ed. by
           Reina Gossett, Eric A. Stanley, and Johanna Burton (review)
    • Abstract: Trap Door means trouble, politically and aesthetically. Deftly edited by Tourmaline Gossett, Eric A. Stanley, and Johanna Burton,1 the 2017 anthology Trap Door features the voices and works of a diverse range of transgender cultural producers, artists, activists, and scholars in conversation about how "the trap of the visual" has defined, driven, and limited transgender life. As a historical document, Trap Door operates most contemporaneously as a rebuttal to Time magazine's 2014 announcement of the "transgender tipping point," a moment at which the rising number of transgender representations in mainstream US media appeared to signal an approaching era of transgender equality.2 Trap Door's editors immediately note ...

  • Struggling for Ordinary: Media and Transgender Belonging in Everyday Life
           by Andre Cavalcante (review)
    • Abstract: Beginning in the 1930s magazines and newspapers, in stories of "sex reversals," "sex changes," and "sexual metamorphoses," captured the attention of mainstream America: so Joanne Meyerowitz shows in How Sex Changed: A History of Transsexuality in the United States.1 What differentiated these stories from previous tales of lone individuals discovered living as a gender other than the one they had been assigned, was that quoted medical doctors affirmed the possibility of bodily change—for anyone.2 In this new iteration of transformation narratives, the media recast ordinary trans lives into extraordinary examples of a transformed life potentially achieved by all. These media texts provided a potential spark of ... Read More

  • "Actor Denied Straight Nose": Louis Wolheim and the Gendered Practice of
           Plastic Surgery in Silent-Era Hollywood
    • Abstract: Throughout the silent era, fan magazines highlighted motion-picture stars' pursuit of youth and beauty, particularly through the relatively new—and seemingly extreme—practice of plastic surgery, which entered the public's consciousness in the 1910s, when maxillofacial and other modern surgical techniques were developed and used to treat disfigured World War I veterans.1 The reconstructive focus of this emerging field was quickly expanded to include "aesthetic" or cosmetic procedures, which, as Sander Gilman notes, physicians enacted on a model of "passing" in which individuals of various ethnic backgrounds reshaped their faces and physiques to pursue an ideal of youthful, slim, Anglo-Saxon attractiveness.2 Early ...

  • "Hollywood" Hulk Hogan: Stardom, Synergy, and Field Migration
    • Abstract: In the spring of 2016, Terry Bollea, more widely known as wrestler Hulk Hogan, successfully sued the celebrity gossip blog Gawker for publishing an excerpt from a sex tape in which he allegedly had intercourse with a friend's wife. Before the trial, the judge informed the wrestler that he would be referred to as "Terry Gene Bollea" and cautioned, "This is not going to be a carnival."1 The lawsuit, however, became a remarkable demonstration of the curious relationship between private and public personas created by "kayfabe," professional wrestling's complex promotional system. Sean Gentille of Sporting News highlighted the strange, sometimes comical claims that emerged from attempts to distinguish between Bollea and ... Read More

  • Some Restrictions Apply: The Exhibition Spaces of Guantanamo Bay
    • Abstract: On the evening of January 16, 2015, attendees filed into the Downtown Lyceum for a screening of Clint Eastwood's latest film, American Sniper (2014). Beginning at 7 p.m., these moviegoers watched Bradley Cooper enact the role of Chris Kyle, the real-life Navy SEAL who served four tours of duty in the second Iraq War and is credited as the deadliest sniper in US military history.1 They watched the filmic version of Kyle perch on rooftops and fire kill shots into the heads of his numerous targets. They also observed him struggling to balance his military and domestic obligations and to cope with the traumatic consequences of war.On its surface, this screening may seem unremarkable. On that same Friday in January ... Read More

  • The Searching Camera: First-Person Shooters, Found-Footage Horror Films,
           and the Documentary Tradition
    • Abstract: In the 1970s, horror films such as Black Christmas (Bob Clark, 1974) and Halloween (John Carpenter, 1978) introduced an unattributed point-of-view (POV) shot aligned, or presumably aligned, with a killer. Uniquely, these sequences delayed their reverse shots—sometimes until the end of the sequence, sometimes until a reveal late in the movie—and occasionally avoided a reverse shot entirely (Figure 1). This trope of "killer POV" keeps the monster or killer unseen and off-screen while signaling his presence within the scene. Since the 1980s, this shot has been so widespread in horror that it has become emblematic of the genre, frequently imitated and parodied—a shorthand device used to signify "horror" and slasher ...

  • Project Pigeon: Rendering the War Animal through Optical Technology
    • Abstract: In his 1979 autobiography, The Shaping of a Behaviorist, B. F. Skinner recounted a fateful train ride to Chicago in 1940, just after the Nazis had invaded Denmark. Gazing out the train window, the renowned behaviorist ruminated on the destructive power of aerial warfare when his eye unexpectedly caught sight of a "flock of birds lifting and wheeling in formation as they flew alongside the train."1 Skinner recounts: "Suddenly I saw them as 'devices' with excellent vision and extraordinary maneuverability. Could they not guide a missile'"2 Observing the coordination of the flock, its "lifting and wheeling," inspired in Skinner a new vision of aerial warfare, one that yoked the senses and movements of living animals ...

  • The Face in Flight: Andy Warhol's Henry Geldzahler
    • Abstract: Part minimal exercise, part portrait, Henry Geldzahler (1964) remains among the least studied of Andy Warhol's early films: the silent works made after he acquired a 16mm Bolex in July 1963 and before he shifted to sound cinema at the end of 1964, when he started using an Auricon capable of synchronous sound registration.1 It captures Warhol's good friend at the time, the art critic and curator Henry Geldzahler, sitting in front of the camera and smoking a cigar—an apparently simple premise that, as this article shows, belies the performative and conceptual complexity of the film. By comparison with Warhol's other films of the period, Henry Geldzahler is relatively unremarkable. It is not enlivened with the erotic ... Read More
