MEDIA REVIEWS

"For the impressive range of theoretical resources it draws on and, especially, the imaginative variety of new film texts it introduces and analyzes, this volume is a very welcome contribution to the field of feminist film studies." - Feminist Review

"Transnational Feminism in Film and Media is a collective project that contributes in an innovative and effective way to the important and unavoidable debate concerning the crossing of borders in a global world, where borders are not simply meant to be geographical, but are also increasingly being recognized as related to issues of gender, identity, citizenship, and belonging. A great accomplishment of this book is to have put together two pressing contemporary disciplines, gender and media studies, and to have presented their relevance to the burgeoning concerns of transnationalism." - Textual Practice

"Transnational Feminism in Film and Media provides a solid introduction to topics of transnationalism, feminism, film and media studies (and is thus suitable as a textbook too) while at the same time often reframing familiar positions and perspectives, and reconsidering theoretical as well as pedagogical practices." - Third Text

"Transnational Feminism in Film and Media would serve as an excellent addition to any undergraduate film syllabus . . . Ultimately, this book should be read and engaged in multiple arenas, and its call to revalue and reexamine visual culture as a fundamental aspect of women's studies should be taken seriously." - Women's Studies International Forum

"The diversity of material here and the range of vantage points held by the amassed contributors is impressive, even unique. Although many are based in the U.S., they write from Hungarian, Turkish, British, Irish, Dutch, Swiss, Vietnamese, Polish, South Asian, and Americanperspectives. Among the strengths of the project are its attentiveness to a set of media texts that barely register within canonical film studies, its awareness of the new dynamics of transnational circulation, its exploration of the particular investments, pressures and exploitations endemic to globalization, and its interest in the conditions of representability for (among others) asylum seekers, domestic workers and sex-trafficked women in an era which has seen the broad feminization of migration. An engaging and necessary read." - Diane Negra, University of East Anglia

"This collection of interdisiplinary essays examines current cinematic and media landscapes from the perspective of transnational feminist practices and methodologies, focusing on film, media art and video essay." - The Times Higher Education Supplement
