Race, Class, and Gender in "Medieval" Cinema (The New Middle Ages) [eBook]

Race, Class, and Gender in "Medieval" Cinema by L. Ramey & T. Pugh 




  • Series: The New Middle Ages
  • Digital: 228 pages
  • Palgrave Macmillan


The medieval film genre is not, in general, concerned with constructing a historically accurate past, but much analysis nonetheless centers on highlighting anachronisms. This book aims to help scholars and aficionados of medieval film think about how the re-creation of an often mythical past performs important cultural work for modern directors and viewers. The essays in this collection demonstrate that directors intentionally insert modern preoccupations into a setting that would normally be considered incompatible with these concepts. The Middle Ages provide an imaginary space far enough removed from the present day to explore modern preoccupations with human identity.
