The End at The End: Apocalyptic Cinema at the Close of a Millennium by Julian Cornell ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation examines the enduring popularity of apocalypticism in mainstream films at the end of the 20th century. Considered synonymous with disaster fictions, the apocalyptic is a meaning generating system which holds a privileged place in American cultural and political discourse. Employing a wide ranging methodology grounded in cultural history this project endeavors to explain how the apocalyptic can be understood as an allegorical mode of emplotment, in Hayden White's terminology, a way to make historical process comprehensible. Drawing upon the work of Frank Kermode, my study considers the apocalyptic to be a sense-making template through which historical events are filtered in order to provide them with immanence and transcendent meaning. The resiliency and pliability of the apocalyptic mode can be attributed to its open-ended allegorical structure, by the indeterminate nature of its sign system which allows it to be available for either critiquing or affirming hegemonic structures. I will explore how this narrative, derived from religious sources, has been appropriated in the secular arena, as a paradigmatic means to engage the sense of crisis held to be symptomatic of postmodernity

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Reversing the Lens is relevant to anyone who is curious about how video and film can be utilized to expose ethnicity, race, gender, and sexuality as social constructions subject to political contestation and in dialogue with other potential forms of difference."--BOOK JACKET
Hip hop on film : performance culture, urban space, and genre transformation in the 1980s by Kimberley Monteyne ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The dissertation also addresses the relationship between gender and breakdance in feature film and print, arguing that women and girls adopted aspects of the dance to critique black masculinity. Further, it notes that as the hip hop musical explored the connections between folk art and high culture, institutional dance promoters exploited public perceptions of urban street dance as expressions of hyper masculinity and violence in order to revive interest in contemporary ballet. In conclusion, this project unearths the complex history of race, performance culture and urban transformations embedded within these musicals, and establishes these films as important aspects of early hip hop history
Trying To Get Over: African American Directors After Blaxploitation, 1977--1986 by Keith Corson ( Book )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The representation and involvement of African Americans in the film industry took a dramatic downturn following the demise of the blaxploitation cycle. With an average of over thirty black-focused films released per year between 1972 and 1976, narrative films featuring black stars or specifically targeting a black audience dwindled to only a handful of annual releases in the following decade due in large part to the changing film industry and a broader conservative shift in American politics. The supposed inroads of black artists in Hollywood during the 1970s largely evaporated, with the first group of black directors to work in Hollywood finding themselves shut out of the industry only a half-decade later. This dissertation charts the careers of the eight black directors who found a way to complete full-length features and secure commercial distribution in the decade following the blaxploitation cycle. Although they shared their struggles trying to carve out a space in an industry that was increasingly hostile to black involvement, the manner in which these eight directors navigated the industry varied widely, to say nothing of their personal and political sensibilities. This dissertation examines the multifaceted careers of Michael Schultz, Sidney Poitier, Jamaa Fanaka, Fred "the Hammer" Williamson, Richard Pryor, Prince, Gilbert Moses, and Stan Lathan, taking into account their differing approaches to filmmaking while also making a case for their shared legacy in shaping black popular culture in the 1980s and beyond
