About the Author

Raymond Bellour is Director of Research at the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique. He is a scholar and writer whose work has been devoted to both literature—especially the Brontës, Dumas, and Michaux—and film—most notably L'Analyse du film, first published in 1979, and several related collections including Le Cinéma Américain and Le Western. Since the early eighties his work has concentrated on mixed media and the relation between words and images. This new focus has resulted in an exhibition, Passages de l'image (1989); a book, L'Entre-Images (1990); and a MOMA catalog, Jean-Luc Godard: Sonimage (1992). In 1991, with Serge Daney, he started the film journal Trafic.

Constance Penley is Professor and Chair of Film Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. A founding editor of the leading feminist media journal, Camera Obscura, she also edited the influential collection Feminism and Film Theory. Penley has written widely in the fields of film studies, cultural studies, and science studies. Her most recent books are NASA/TREK: Popular Science and Sex in America and The Invisible Woman: Imaging Technologies, Gender, and Science, edited with Paula Treichler and Lisa Cartwright.

My first read on the introduction proved most difficult, but on the second read much more helpful and helpful to understand its application to my Cinema Studies papers. I felt the authors discussion highly worded or difficult to understand, grasp, but this also I comprehended more on returning to the book. I look forward to its usefulness on my remaining papers.
