Feminist consequences theory for the new century by Elisabeth Bronfen( file )
9 editions published between 2000 and 2012 in English and held by 1,495 libraries worldwide
Exploring the status of feminism in this ""postfeminist"" age, this sophisticated meditation on feminist thinking over the past three decades moves away from the all too common dependence on French theorists and male thinkers and instead builds on a wide-ranging body of feminist theory written by women. These writings address the question ""Where are we going?"" as well as ""Where have we come from?"" As evidenced in the essays compiled here, the multiplicity of directions available to this new feminism ranges from poststructuralist academic theory through cultural activism to re-r
Home in Hollywood : the imaginary geography of cinema by Elisabeth Bronfen( Book )
8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 796 libraries worldwide
Who can forget Dorothy's quest for the great and powerful Oz as she tried to return to her beloved Kansas? She thought she needed a wizard's magic, only to discover that home?and the power to get there?had been with her all along. This engaging and provocative book proposes that Hollywood has created an imaginary cinematic geography filled with people and places we recognize and to which we are irresistibly drawn. Each viewing of a film stirs, in a very real and charismatic way, feelings of home, and the comfort of returning to films like familiar haunts is at the core of our nostalgic de
Specters of war Hollywood's engagement with military conflict by Elisabeth Bronfen( file )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 723 libraries worldwide
Specters of War: Hollywood's Engagement with Military Conflict looks at the way war has been brought to the screen in various genres and at different historical moments throughout the twentieth century. Elisabeth Bronfen asserts that Hollywood has emerged as a place where national narratives are created and circulated so that audiences can engage with fantasies, ideologies, and anxieties that take hold at a given time, only to change with the political climate
Over her dead body : death, femininity, and the aesthetic by Elisabeth Bronfen( Book )

"Elisabeth Bronfen throws light on the disturbing conjunction of beauty, morbidity and the feminine that pervades our culture.

Night passages : philosophy, literature, and film by Elisabeth Bronfen( Book )
6 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 239 libraries worldwide
In the beginning was the night. All light, shapes, language, and subjective consciousness, as well as the world and art depicting them, emerged from this formless chaos. In fantasy, we seek to return to this original darkness. Particularly in literature, visual representations, and film, the night resiliently resurfaces from the margins of the knowable, acting as a stage and state of mind in which exceptional perceptions, discoveries, and decisions play out.Elisabeth Bronfen follows nocturnal spaces in which extraordinary events unfold, enabling the irrational exploration of desire, transformation, ecstasy, transgression, spiritual illumination, and moral choice. She begins with classical myths depicting the creation of the world and moves through nocturnal scenes in Shakespeare and Milton, Gothic figurations, Hegel's romantic philosophy, and Freud's psychoanalysis. In modern times, she shows how literature and film, particularly film noir, transmit that piece of night the modern subject carries within. From Mozart's "Queen of the Night" to Virginia Woolf 's oscillation between day and night, life and death, and chaos and aesthetic form, Bronfen renders something visible, conceivable, and tellable from the dark realms of the unknown
Dorothy Richardson's art of memory : space, identity, text by Elisabeth Bronfen( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2011 in English and held by 205 libraries worldwide
"Dorothy Richardson's novel cycle Pilgrimage, completed in 1938, continues to be marginalised despite the fact that in the past decade several monographs and many articles addressing the issues of gender genre and modernism have been published: Her work has been recuperated from oblivion primarily as a voice of feminine modernism, but the philosophical underpinnings are still overlooked. Mapping this early modernist text against our postmodern interest in real and imagined geographies, Bronfen addresses the question of how identity is formed as a result of corporeal and cultural positioning."--BOOK JACKET
The return of the repressed by Louise Bourgeois( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 191 libraries worldwide
Women : Picasso, Beckmann, de Kooning : Bayerische Staatsgemäldesammlungen ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 171 libraries worldwide
Regardless of the clichés associated with Pablo Picasso (1881-1973), Max Beckmann (1884-1950), and Willem de Kooning (1904-1997) in the "public" private sphere, their exploration of the theme "woman" go far beyond one-sided definitions. Their portrayals of women are highly nuanced; they have a significance of their own and time and again become sensitive reflections of social and political problems and upheavals. They are not simply surfaces upon which are projected male longings and desires, but catalysts for a confrontation with the artist's own life and history (Picasso), while in Beckmann's work they are completely free, independent counter-images. De Kooning sees them as a separate force within which culminate opportunities for artistic expression. Contributions by art historians, authors, sociologists, and artists approach the theme from a variety of perspectives. Exhibition: Pinakothek der Moderne, Munich, Germany (30.3.-15.6.2012)
