Cinema and Media Studies

Editor in Chief | Area Editors | Articles and Contributors

Cinema and media studies includes a dizzying array of subfields: film history, television studies, media studies, critical theory, visual arts, cultural studies, digital culture, game studies, popular culture, and the study of the moving image. Because the boundaries of the discipline are continuously debated and because technology is constantly changing, students and scholars find it difficult if not impossible to keep up with all the literature in their areas of expertise. Even familiar subjects such as a national cinema or the work of a canonical filmmaker are becoming less familiar as new approaches and new research redefine the field. Meanwhile, a colossal amount of information – good and bad, important and useless -- now clutters the Internet. Oxford Bibliographies in Cinema and Media Studies has recruited many of the finest scholars in cinema and media studies to chart a path through the information thicket and toward a carefully organized, thoroughly peer-reviewed account of the most important books, articles, and Web sites. With frequent updates, Oxford Bibliographies in Cinema and Media Studies is an essential resource for students, faculty, and researchers.


Spotlight: Science Fiction

Readers interested in learning more about science fiction in literary and cinematic studies will welcome this selection of freely available Oxford Bibliographies articles. This collection spans various disciplines in order to further illuminate the major themes and works in the field. Read More.
