Description

Casting aside the traditional conception of film as an outgrowth of photography, theatre, and the novel, the essays in this volume reasses the relationship between the emergence of film and the broader culture of modernity. Contributors, scholars in film and cultural studies, link the popularity of cinema in the late-19th century to emerging cultural phenomena such as window shopping, mail-order catalogues and wax museums.
