Sissejuhatus juba rohkem kui sajandivanuse filmiteooria ajalukku ei saa ilmselgelt üks lihtne lugemine olla.

Contesting the monolingual and Anglo-Americano-centric approach to these issues, the book elaborates such concepts as “the seismic shift” provoked by the decolonization of culture, the radicalization of the academic disciplines, the philosophical centrality of indigenous thought, the “left/right” convergence on identity politics, and “inter-colonial narcissism. This could surely help someone ease into a less general work on film theory, depending on the interests of the individual. Attempting to go beyond the methodological limitations of the then-dominant paradigm of “positive image” and “negative stereotype” analysis, Stam argued for an approach that emphasized not social accuracy or characterological merits but rather issues such as perspective, address, focalization, mediation, and the filmic orchestration of discourses.Stam has published widely on French literature, comparative literature, and on film topics such as film history and film theory.

One feature, which came to characterize all of the Stam-Shohat collaborations was looking at theses issues within a longue timespan by placing the various "1492s" (i.

Stam has also been an advocate-exegete of semiotics, poststructuralism, and film theory in such books as New Vocabularies in Film Semiotics: Structuralism, Poststructuralism, and Beyond (Routledge, 1992) and Film Theory: An Introduction (Blackwell, 2000), the first book to recount the history of film theory from its beginnings to the present within a transnational framework that included Latin America, Africa and Asia alongside Europe and North America. Ou seja, tudo é exposto de modo muito honesto e imparcial (quase sempre, acho ele severo nas críticas ao autorismo) para você tirar suas próprias conclusões.

Tropical Multiculturalism: A Comparative History of Race in Brazilian Cinema and Culture (Duke, 1997) offered the first book-length study in English of racial representation, especially of Afro-Brazilians, during the century of Brazilian Cinema, within a comparative framework in relation to similar issues in American cinema. Another field of intervention for Stam has been in cultural theory, especially in Subversive Pleasures: Bakhtin, Cultural Criticism, and Film (Johns Hopkins, 1989), the first book-length study to extrapolate for film and cultural studies Bakhtin's conceptual categories, such as “translinguistics” and “dialogism” and the “carnivalesque. Stam has also been a major figure within the “transtextual turn” in adaptation and intertextuality studies.The discussion of Bakhtin was somewhat unfocused, however, and I was never sure exactly how his ideas were being applied. Race in Translation: Culture Wars Around the Postcolonial Atlantic (NYU, 2012), finally, dealt with the postwar debates about colonialism, postcoloniality, race, multiculture and Affirmative Action in three cultural zones—the U. geniş kapsamlı, dönemin felsefi ve politik eğilimleri ile sinema arasındaki bağlara ağırlık veren bir yerden ele alıyor.
