Film, media, and cultural theorists have long appealed to Lacanian theory in order to discern processes of subjectivization, representation, and ideological interpellation. Here, the contributors take up a Zizekian approach to studies of cinema and media, raising questions about power, ideology, sexual difference, and enjoyment.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Text thus presents a broad topology of a potential field of interrogation. ... recommend this book as both an introduction to the proposed field of Zizekian media studies itself, but also as an important overview of the evolution of psychoanalytic theory for a postmodern present. ... An admirable job is done in the introduction to make the reader as a whole quite accessible and to present the current state of psychoanalysis and media studies in a historical and philosophical context." (Sean Rupka, Canadian Journal of Communication, Vol. 41, 2016)

"Flisfeder and Willis completely reshape our understanding of the history of psychoanalytic film theory by contextualizing it through Slavoj i ek's impact. i ek and Media Studies comes at a time when contemporary psychoanalytic film theory has changed substantially and this contribution is thus required reading." - Hilary Neroni, Film and Television Studies, University of Vermont, USA and author of The Subject of Torture: Psychoanalysis, Biopolitics, and Media Representations

"One thing that makes reading i ek so interesting and (let's be honest) entertaining is the way he engages popular culture and media. Unfortunately the impact of this effort has been largely underappreciated within the discipline of Media Studies. This book repairs that deficiency by developing a distinctly i ekian approach to media scholarship. It is indispensable for anyone interested in i ek and a must-read for students, teachers, and researchers in Media, Film, and Communication Studies." - David J. Gunkel, Professor, Northern Illinois University, USA and author of The Machine Question and Heidegger and the Media
