[Commlist] New Book - Exposing Vulnerability

Tue Jul 30 19:02:40 GMT 2019

Intellect is delighted to announce the publication of /Exposing Vulnerability <>/ by Adriana Dancus.

This book explores the diversity of perspectives afforded by the emerging body of Scandinavian films produced by women. The author focuses on women filmmakers' use of their own vulnerability in representing Scandinavian experiences with globally relevant contemporary issues such as race, gender, mental illness, bullying and the trauma of migration, and highlights the frictions between the positive and negative manifestations of such vulnerability. Though Scandinavia is reputed for its ambitious and innovative film tradition, film scholarship has largely ignored women’s bold contributions to the canon./Exposing Vulnerability/ is a cultural and socio-political analysis of contemporary film by Scandinavian women as they use their lives and work to reconfigure the cinematic, the political and the ethical.
