  • Transnational Science Fiction at the End of the World: Consensus,
           Conflict, and the Politics of Climate Change
    • Abstract: As I explore in this article, popular science fiction cinema has been characterized by a recent environmental turn but also by a critical move away from consensus and unilateralism in its politics. Although the globalized tendencies of contemporary film production have encouraged or compelled new forms of international cooperation and collectives, both on- and off-screen, these have not always responded to or reflected the contexts of global policy and action.1 The difficulty of achieving consensus and collective response has been especially apparent in the cases of the environment and climate change. These are contexts to which science fiction cinema, with its capacity for visualizing dramatic and speculative ... Read More

  • Torture in Word and Image: Inhuman Acts in Resnais and Pontecorvo
    • Abstract: Marked and tortured bodies do not light up anything.The Algerian War (1954–1962) was a bloody decolonization struggle between the French military and Algerian insurgents that produced some of the most extreme political violence of the twentieth century. The Front de libération nationale (FLN) was one of the many groups fighting for the liberation of Algeria and was ultimately dominant, and it took the most hardline approach: guerilla warfare, assassinations, bombings, terrorist tactics, and beheadings were used as military strategies, against French soldiers and civilians as well as dissenting Algerians.1 The FLN's underlying ideology supported the use of violence in overthrowing the yoke of colonialism, well ...

  • A Global Cinematic Experience: Cinépolis, Film Exhibition, and Luxury
           Branding
    • Abstract: Film Exhibition Diary: Cinépolis Victory Park—Dallas, TX, United States (September 2018). I visit my local multiplex. Arriving half an hour early, I walk past the automatic ticket booths straight to the pristine lobby and spot a bar-lounge on my left. I bought my assigned-seating tickets in advance so I am not worried about getting to the theater right away. I approach the bar and order a drink, something sweet. For the next twenty minutes, I sit at the lounge on a midsize modern couch, listening to the low-bass house music of the lobby and watching the muted LCD screens across the way. Some are playing the latest soccer match; others, trailers for upcoming summer blockbusters. Eventually I make my way toward the ... Read More

  • On the Concept of Setting: A Study of V. F. Perkins
    • Abstract: The question with settings always is: Can they be so used that they will serve a greater utility than merely being a place where the action occurs; can they, in other words, be integrated with and so intensify either the character or action or both'When we can see the characters and the action clearly, then the background may fade out of focus.There is no shortage of writing on cinematic space. Setting, however, is less often in our crosshairs. The two are distinct because setting, unlike space, strikes a humanistic chord. Space is full of bodies, or things that have mass; setting is full of characters, or things that have feeling. Space is the realm of colorless extension—of point, line, locus, and plane. Setting ...

  • A Dark Exilic Vision of 1960s Britain: Gothic Horror and Film Noir
           Pervading Losey and Pinter's The Servant
    • Abstract: Ranked twenty-second in the British Film Institute's 1999 poll "Top 100 British Films of the Twentieth Century," The Servant (1963) is recognized as a high-water mark in 1960s British cinema and remains the best-known collaboration between director Joseph Losey and dramatist-screenwriter Harold Pinter. Losey's self-conscious visuals and Pinter's elliptical dialogue coalesced to create a provocative and politically charged film. These collaborators transformed Robin Maugham's postwar novella about an aristocrat's moral degradation at the hands of his manipulative manservant into what Caroline Millar hails as a "savage indictment of the English class system, and its waning hold over all aspects of working and ...

  • In Translation: Paulin Soumanou Vieyra
    • Abstract: Those years of growing awareness were also years of ember … Africa was looking ahead. … Witness to such key moments, Paulin Soumanou Vieyra filmed everything … day and night.Seldom is the historian also a witness to and even, to a certain extent, an artisan of that whose history it tells. Such is Paulin Soumanou Vieyra, a man invested in African cinema on so many levels.Films have been made and seen in Africa since cinema's inception, but the 1950s mark the time when Africans themselves gained access to the equipment and training necessary to start making their own films. In a decade rife with decolonizing ruptures, Paulin Soumanou Vieyra (1925–1987) would spearhead the establishment of African cinema as a ... Read More

  • In Focus: What's So Funny about Comedy and Humor Studies' Introduction
    • Abstract: A guy walks into a bar. No, wait. Three guys walk into a bar. No. Let us start over. Twenty-some professors, graduate students, contingent lecturers, and independent scholars walk into a gray-toned hotel conference room, arrange the chairs into a makeshift semicircle, and energetically debate the future of comedy and humor studies as an academic field. It might not sound like the start of a promising joke, but if it's any consolation, it only gets funnier from there.The essays that follow have been borne out of our annual meetings of the Comedy and Humor Studies Scholarly Interest Group at the Society of Cinema and Media Studies Conference.1 Across the essays in this section, our goal is to highlight the exciting ...

  • Historiography and Humorlects
    • Abstract: I once had a competition with a screenwriting instructor in my program. Which of our students would most appreciate W. C. Fields's oddball melodrama parody The Fatal Glass of Beer (1933): the MFA screenwriters (his team) or the MA class in film studies (mine)' The result, a draw. Love-all. Two classes at Columbia that year got to sit stone-faced through one of Fields's most divisive two-reelers; two instructors were shamed in their tastes by their unlaughing students, and no amount of appeals to the work of Linda Hutcheon would save us.1 Such are the delights of teaching comedy.This essay is an exercise in licking my wounds. Because I want to use that experience—and, indeed, that film—as a way of thinking about the ... Read More

  • Classroom Clowning: Teaching (with) Humor in the Media Classroom
    • Abstract: College is a place for serious work. But does it need to be a serious place' In our efforts to communicate the importance of what we are teaching to our students, we may be casting aside one of our most valuable tools as educators: humor. Teaching with humor has tangible—and intangible—benefits, and media scholars are well positioned to use it. We tend to fear class clowns as distracting from our work in the classroom, but what if we view ourselves as the class clowns' We, the coauthors of this piece, are doctoral candidates who teach courses on film and television comedy, and while our demeanors and identity markers in the classroom are different, we operate from similar levels of junior-scholar precarity within ...

  • On Trolling as Comedic Method
    • Abstract: For evidence of the reinflamed American culture wars, look no further than the cancellation of popular television comedies. Well before ABC's much-debated termination of the Roseanne (ABC, 2018) reboot season, Adult Swim caused a stir when it axed the sketch-comedy series Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace (Cartoon Network, 2016) in late 2016. Both shows were charged with advancing a specifically Trumpian ideological agenda, prompting counterprotests of liberal intolerance. World Peace, which aired after midnight on Cartoon Network's niche Adult Swim programming block, simply advanced its ideology to a smaller audience than Roseanne. Its relatively marginal position is significant: if Roseanne exemplified ... Read More

  • The Tweet Has Two Faces: Two-Faced Humor, Black Masculinity, and RompHim
    • Abstract: Beginning in early summer of 2017, the internet was abuzz about the RompHim, a romper designed and intended for men. The incredulity of the prospect of men wearing rompers soon turned comedic as a means to make sense of this new fashion trend. RompHim, like its predecessor the man purse, or "murse," exposed a schism in idea(l)s about the sartorial choices of heterosexual men. RompHim provides an ideal case study to explore humor in the twenty-first century for three reasons. First, it rearticulates the ways humor often works to reassert the hegemonic order. Second, and related, it helps illuminate how offline forms of humor, particularly those invested in maintaining the status quo, are imported into online spaces. ... Read More

  • Hannah Gadsby Stands Down: Feminist Comedy Studies
    • Abstract: Sitting in a large auditorium at Edinburgh University, the audience of approximately two hundred hummed, tweeted, and buzzed in anticipation of stand-up comic Hannah Gadsby's much-discussed Nanette at the 2017 Fringe Festival. Within moments of taking the stage, Gadsby's performance—a feminist-queer metacommentary on comedy—distinguished itself from standard stand-up shows when she declared, "I am going to have to quit comedy."1 She spent the next sixty minutes telling us why.2 I saw Nanette again in London in November 2017 at the Soho Comedy Club. The sold-out show was at capacity, at 175. Gadsby had been performing Nanette for more than six months. She looked tired, but the show was equally powerful and ... Read More

University of Minnesota Press. 2016. $94.50 hardcover; $27.00 paperback; also available in e-book. 232 pages.After its premiere at the seventy-first Cannes Festival, an "unrestored" edition of Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968) was theatrically rereleased in June 2018 to commemorate its fiftieth anniversary. Kubrick fan Christopher Nolan revitalized the colors of the masterpiece's original 70 mm version and proved that the philosophical power of 2001 can still feed the debate on the nature and value of the film experience, especially when it takes place in a movie theater equipped with a big screen. In the age of the ... Read More

Fischer argued that the logics and strategies of magic in these films express an ... Read More

University of Illinois Press. 2018. $99.00 hardcover; $26.00 paperback; $23.40 e-book. 202 pages.The book In Search of Belonging: Latinas, Media, and Citizenship, by Jillian Báez, illustrates the complex relationships Latinas develop with media texts in the context of their local neighborhood experiences in Chicago. The ethnographic approach employed by Báez provides her access to deep and meaningful insight into gender, class, and ethnicity from the women at the center of her story. Báez's book takes its place among a growing body of literature in communication and media studies by authors who center the Latina/o experience to expand what ... Read More

    • Abstract: Split Screen Nation: Moving Images of the American West and South by Susan Courtney. Oxford University Press. 2017. $105.00 hardcover; $36.95 paperback; also available in e-book. 328 pages.Susan Courtney's Split Screen Nation is a historical study of US films that visualized the West and the South in the mid-twentieth century. This is such an immense and complex topic, and it potentially bears on such a vast range of films, that it might have faltered under the weight of its ambition. However, the book succeeds by focusing on visualizations of race and identity in these two regions. Specifically, the book demonstrates the complex ways in which moving images avoided, displaced, or disavowed the racial injustices the ... Read More
