- Not available
Miriam Hansen offers an original perspective on American film by tying the emergence of spectatorship to the historical transformation of the public sphere. Focusing on exemplary moments in the American silent era, she explains how the concept of the spectator evolved as a crucial part of the classical Hollywood paradigm - as one of the new industry's strategies to integrate ethnically, socially and sexually differentiated audiences in a modern culture of consumption.
