Performative histories, foundational fictions : gender and sexuality in Niskavuori films by Anu Koivunen( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and Finnish and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Films are integral to national imagination. Promotional publicity markets "domestic films" not only as entertaining, exciting, or moving, but also as topical and relevant in different ways. Reviewers assess new films with reference to other films and cultural products as well as social and political issues. Through such interpretive framings by contemporaries and later generations, popular cinema is embedded both in national imagination and endless intertextual and intermedial frameworks. Moreover, films themselves become signs to be cited and recycled as illustrations of cultural, social, and political history as well as national mentality. In the age of television, "old films" continue to live as history and memory. In Performative Histories, Foundational Fictions, Anu Koivunen analyzes the historicity as well as the intertextuality and intermediality of film reception by focusing on a cycle of Finnish family melodrama and its key role in thinking about gender, sexuality, nation, and history. Close-reading posters, advertisements, publicity-stills, trailers, review journalism, and critical commentary, she demonstrates how The Women of Niskavuori (1938 and 1958), Loviisa (1946), Heta Niskavuori (1952), Aarne Niskavuori (1954), Niskavuori Fights (1957), and Niskavuori (1984) have operated as sites for imagining "our agrarian past", our Heimat and heritage as well as "the strong Finnish woman" or "the weak man in crisis". Based on extensive empirical research, Koivunen argues that the Niskavuori films have mobilized readings in terms of history and memory, feminist nationalism and men's movement, left-wing allegories and right-wing morality as well as realism and melodrama. Through processes of citation, repetition, and re-cycling the films have acquired not only a heterogeneous and contradictory interpretive legacy, but also an affective force

Den här boken är en antologi som ger en mångsidig introduktion till audiovisuell kultur i förändring och olika sätt att se på de rörliga bildernas historia, teori, estetik och funktioner.

The power of vulnerability. Mobilising affect in feminist, queer and anti-racist media cultures( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book investigates the new language of vulnerability that has emerged in feminist, queer and antiracist debates on media, taking a particular interest in the historical legacies and contemporary forms and effects of this language. Contributors such as Jack Halberstam and Sara Ahmed examine how vulnerability has become a battleground, how affect and vulnerability have turned into a politicised currency both for addressing and obscuring asymmetries of power, and how media activism and state policies address so-called vulnerable groups. Taking on such heated topics as trigger warnings and diversity policies, the book will be of interest to scholars and students in media and cultural studies, affect theory, gender studies, queer theory and critical race studies. --

Två gånger är en vana by Denise Rudberg( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in Finnish and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

En av de ansatte ved et prestisjetungt verdipapirforetak, The Chinese Wall, blir utsatt for et merkelig angrep. Vedkommende blir funnet hardt skadet, tilsynelatende har gjerningsmannen ønsket å drepe. Etterforskning viser snart at firmaets navn er svært passende, selskapet blokkerer nemlig all fri flyt av informasjon til omverdenen. Torsten Ehns nye enhet får i oppdrag å etterforske saken, og sammen med Marianne og Augustin begynner de å grave i gamle forbrytelser som er knyttet til selskapet. Sakte men sikkert avdekker de et skremmende bilde av en gruppe menn som strategisk og med stor besluttsomhet arbeider for å utelukke all kvinnelig tilstedeværelse i ledende stillinger
