Disruptive Feminisms: Raced, Gendered, and Classed Bodies in Film
Gwendolyn Audrey Foster, "Disruptive Feminisms: Raced, Gendered, and Classed Bodies in Film"
English | ISBN: 1137597674 | 2016 | 116 pages | PDF | 2 MB


Amy Schumer and Betty White use subversive feminist wit to expose sexism and ageism in film and TV. This is but one example of "disruptive feminism" discussed in this groundbreaking book. Disruptive Feminisms: Raced, Gendered, and Classed Bodies offers a revolutionary approach to feminism as a disruptive force. By examining texts that do not necessarily announce themselves as "feminist," or "Marxist," Foster brings a unique critical perspective to a wide variety of films, from the classical Hollywood films of Dorothy Arzner and Ida Lupino, to the subversive global films of Carlos Reygadas, Claire Denis, Michelangelo Antonioni, Luis Buñuel, Paul Thomas Anderson, and many others. In highlighting these filmmaker's abilities to openly challenge everything from class privilege and colonial racism, to sexism, ageism, homophobia and the pathologies of white privilege, Disruptive Feminisms fills a fresh and much-needed critical perspective, that which Foster dubs "disruptive feminism."
