Read full description of the books Fetishism and Curiosity:Writer and filmmaker Laura Mulvey is widely regarded as one of the most challenging and incisive contemporary feminist cultural theorists. Part of the 1970s generation of British film theorists and independent filmmakers, she came to prominence with her classic work on the pleasures, and displeasures, of narrative cinema, Visual and Other Pleasures. This new collection contains her most recent writings, ranging from analyses of Xala, Citizen Kane, and Blue Velvet to an extended engagement with the work of the American Indian artist Jimmie Durham and the feminist photographer Cindy Sherman.
Read information about the authorLaura Mulvey is a British feminist film theorist. She was educated at St Hilda's College, Oxford. She is currently professor of film and media studies at Birkbeck, University of London. She worked at the British Film Institute for many years before taking up her current position.
Mulvey is best known for her essay, "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema", written in 1973 and published in 1975 in the influential British film theory journal Screen. It later appeared in a collection of her essays entitled Visual and Other Pleasures, as well as in numerous other anthologies. Her article, which was influenced by the theories of Sigmund Freud and Jacques Lacan, is one of the first major essays that helped shift the orientation of film theory towards a psychoanalytic framework. Prior to Mulvey, film theorists such as Jean-Louis Baudry and Christian Metz used psychoanalytic ideas in their theoretical accounts of the cinema. Mulvey's contribution, however, inaugurated the intersection of film theory, psychoanalysis and feminism.
