Wisconsin Film Studies
Wisconsin Film Studies 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. The range is broad, and manuscripts on all periods and national film cultures are invited.
The editor invites manuscripts and proposals that focus on important aspects of American and international film, including biographies and autobiographies of key artists (especially directors, screenwriters, and actors); major films; national identity; neglected history; and political investigation.
The series will consider a variety of formats: 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.
Please send inquiries to UW Press Director Dennis Lloyd.

A Cinema of Obsession
The Life and Work of Mai Zetterling
“The book’s greatest contribution to film scholarship may well be its exposure of the critical inadequacy of both the male-centric auteurist model and the national cinema frameworks for assessing the work of an important transnational, feminist filmmaker in the late twentieth century.”

Six Turkish Filmmakers
“Raw chooses filmmakers whose films individually, and differently, reflect personal encounters with the culture, history, and politics of the Republic of Turkey. Replete with keen insights, this book is a delight to read and a model for compelling film scholarship and cultural commentary.”
