Responding to postmodernist conceptions of genre and postfeminist theories of gender and sexuality, these essays move beyond the limits of representation.

Testing new thinking about genre, gender, and sexuality against closely analyzed films, they explore generic convention as putting into play what our culture makes of us, while finding in genres repetitions infinite possibilities of cross-generic, cross-gender, cross-sex permutation.

At the same time the aesthetic and emotional dimensions of gender and sexuality emerge as elements fueling the dramatic worlds of film genres, producing in the encounter new gendered perceptions, affects, and effects. _x000B__x000B_Recognizing the intensifying transnational context of film production and responding to postcolonial perspectives, this volume includes essays that explore the transformational transactions between gender and genre in the meeting between world-circulating Hollywood generic practices and American independent, European, Indian, and Hong Kong cinemas.

Such revised concepts of genre and gender question taken-for-granted relationships between authorship and genre, between center and periphery, and between feminism and generic filmmaking. They consequently rethink the gendering of genres, filmmakers, and their audiences. _x000B__x000B_Contributors are Ira Bhaskar, Steven Cohan, Luke Collins, Pam Cook, Lucy Fischer, Jane Gaines, Christine Gledhill, Derek Kane-Meddock, E.
