Following on from the success of the CATH Centre’s 2013 postgraduate conference, New Approaches to Gender, Film and Television: Histories and Futures in the Digital Age, Panel 1 is now available for streaming and download. This is the first in a forthcoming series of recordings taken from the conference.
Panel 1 is entitled ‘Textual representations of gender, sexuality and sexism’ and features the following papers:
Caitlin Shaw (De Montfort University) – ”You make that sound like a bad thing’: Misogyny and nostalgia in Life on Mars, Ashes to Ashes and Gene Hunt fandom’ (0:00)
Eve Bennett (De Montfort University) – ‘The mad doll in the attic: Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse as female gothic for the neoliberal era’ (18:30)
Laura Mee (De Montfort University) – ”Witless, ugly and unnecessary’: Genre, gender and sexuality in I Spit on Your Grave (2010)’ (39:25)
A discussion follows at 58:27.
Note: Due to technical problems with the recording, the first two papers have been re-recorded at a later date and edited into the original panel recording.
