Postmodern After-Images - A Reader in Film, Television and Video

Author(s): Peter Brooker; Will Brooker


This reader examines familiar and fresh images of postmodernism, and looks forward to what is to follow, combining now classic statements from Frederic Jameson, Barbara Creed, Umberto Eco and E. Ann Kaplan with new perspectives on youth, gender and ethnicity. The introduction and headnotes draw out common themes between contributors or set them in debate, and together with two new essays by the editors, extend discussion beyond the foundational sites of Blade Runner, Twin Peaks and Madonna to include Vincent Vega, the Gulf War, and the networks of the worldwide web.
