Screen Tastes documents an important contribution to the development of a feminist cultural studies in the 1980s and 1990s with concerns ranging from 'shopping films' to the deregulation of public service broadcasting, from feminist teaching to the aesthetics of television. While acknowledging debates about the female spectator which underpinned the defence of soap opera and women's films, Brunsdon argues against feminist criticism getting stuck forever in a girly zone. In a period in which global television is undergoing radical transformation, the book responds to problems facing the cultural studies agenda in an age of aggressive de-regulation.
