  • Description

    In honor of the journal’s thirtieth anniversary, this special issue of Camera Obscura considers the past and future of the intertwined topics and disciplines that comprise its subtitle: feminism, culture, and media studies. Contributors examine the ways in which feminism, culture, and media studies intersect with other discourses, disciplines, and practices in meaningful ways. Considering the import of past modes of theoretical, historical, and textual inquiry, the issue asks what theories, methodologies, objects, texts, and practices should be revived and reinvigorated for future study. Others share their characterizations of the changes in feminist culture and media studies over the last thirty years, discussing the ways in which those changes are related and/or removed from the changes within the media and cultural practices themselves.
