About this series
This series encompasses the spectrum of contemporary scholarship on screen performance and embraces productive tensions within film and media studies and between cinema and cultural studies. It features historical research that sheds light on the aesthetic and material forces that shape the production and reception of screen performances in different times, venues, and locales. The series also presents research that expands our understanding of screen performance by examining various types and registers of performance, including those outside the domain of conveying character. The series strives to offer new insights into film/media practice and history by exploring the tools and methods of screen performance practitioners as well as the shifting modes and significances of screen performance in changing social-technological environments.
