Wisconsin Studies in Film

THIS SERIES IS COMPLETE

Original Series Description
This series offers works by emerging and eminent scholars focusing on deserving areas of film study. The series presents books whose fresh scholarship or perspective will make an enduring contribution to film literature, on all periods and national film cultures. Past books have included definitive monographs on classic Warner Bros. scripts, and authoritative studies of Soviet silent film and the French New Wave. The focus is on neglected figures and key films; and the history, styles, genres, trends, and politics of filmmaking, with a special interest in subjects with ties to Wisconsin, or to material in the Wisconsin Film and Theater Archives.

The series will consider a variety of formats, including broad overviews, specific topics, thematic volumes of essays (original or collected on related subjects), anthologies primarily for classroom use, and suggestions for reprinting classic or first-time paperback editions of major works in the field.
