    Through studying images of blood in film from the mid-1950s to the end of the 1960s, this path-breaking book explores how blood as an (audio)visual cinematic element went from predominately operating as a signifier, providing audiences with information about a film?s plot and characters, to increasingly operating in terms of affect, potentially evoking... more...

  • The Politics and Poetics of Cinematic Realismby Hermann Kappelhoff

    Columbia University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    Hermann Kappelhoff casts the evolution of cinema as an ongoing struggle to relate audiences to their historical moment.

  • African Appropriationsby Matthias Krings

    Indiana University Press 2015; US$ 29.99

    Why would a Hollywood film become a Nigerian video remake, a Tanzanian comic book, or a Congolese music video?

  • Children's Literature and the Avant-Gardeby Elina Druker; Bettina Kümmerling-Meibauer

    John Benjamins Publishing Company 2015; US$ 149.00

    This chapter addresses what an avant-garde for children might look like, and what it might do.

In making this claim, the author argues... more...
