Essays in Epistemology Across Media

This collection brings together a number of leading scholars in film studies to explore viewing and listening dispositives - the Foucauldian concept of a strategic and technical configuration of practices and discourses - from the emergence of film studies as a field in the 1960s to more recent uses of the concept. In particular, the contributors confront points of view and perspectives in the context of the rise and spread of new technologies, changes that are continually altering the boundaries and the spaces of cinema and thus demand new analysis and theoretization.
