About the series

Since the 1970s, many academics and teachers have been taking the study of film out of film studies by producing curricula and critical literature hostile to notions of artistic endeavour and aesthetic value. An old heresy is a new orthodoxy, and the argument that the cinema exists solely to illustrate the politics of culture, identity and pleasure is no longer an argument; it is now a ‘core doctrine’ of film education, particularly in the UK and the US. The Cinema Aesthetics series aims to challenge this orthodoxy by publishing visually literate and intellectually creative studies that explore a specific term, critical category, or interdisciplinary issue.
