51st NeMLA Convention | March 5-8, 2020 | Boston, MA

Feminist film critics have pioneered work on the intimate relationship between gender and genre, thus problematizing and unsettling long-standing dominant narratives, structures of looking, and spectatorial positions. Indeed, much of the work by feminist filmmakers showcases an innovative use of genre conventions that opens up new narrative avenues and destabilizes audiences' expectations. Considering its historical dimension, the notion of film genre becomes an invaluable category and analytical tool to explore questions not only of sexual difference, but also of sexual orientation, race, class, or culture.
