Visual Economies Of/In Motion: Sport and Film / Edition 1by C. Richard King, David J. Leonard
Pub. Date: 10/01/2006
Publisher: Peter Lang Publishing Inc.
Sport films have been central to American cinema, playing an increasingly important role in the communication of a commonsense understanding of race, gender, class, history, and social relations. Oddly, scholars have neglected sport films and their significance. Offering a comparative, theoretically grounded, and interdisciplinary approach, Visual Economies of/in Motion marks a novel and important point of departure in sport studies and cultural studies. It brings together a dozen essays on feature films and documentaries to probe the articulation of ideologies and identities, play and power, and sporting worlds and social fields.
