During the first decades of the 21st century, a critical re-assessment of the reenactment as a form of historical representation has taken place in the disciplines of history, art history and performance studies. Engagement with the reenactment in film and media studies has come almost entirely from the field of documentary studies and has focused almost exclusively on non-fiction, even though reenactments are being employed across fiction and non-fiction film and television genres. Working with an eclectic collection of case studies from Milk, Monster, Boys Don't Cry, and The Battle of Orgreave to CSI and the video of police assaulting Rodney King, this book examines the relationship between the status of theatricality in the reenactment and the ways in which its relationships to reference are performed. Carrigy shows that while the practice of reenactment predates technically reproducible media, and continues to exist in both live and mediated forms, it has been thoroughly transformed through its incorporation within forms of technical media.

Carrigy offers a brilliant look at how reenactments work as "meta-historical" representations that re-embody the past but also comment on it in surprisingly complex ways. Her book is an invaluable addition to the literature. Replaying the past promises to illuminate its mysteries but it also reshapes our grasp of what has happened in a remarkably wide variety of ways as Carrigy vividly demonstrates in this wide-ranging, insightful work. * Bill Nichols, Professor Emeritus of Cinema, San Francisco State University, USA * Historical recreation, biographical film performance, television crime drama, and movie remakes - moving image reenactments are everywhere. And they befuddle us as they simultaneously seem to be accurate and inaccurate, authentic and inauthentic, and trustworthy and false documents of the past. Megan Carrigy takes us on an illuminating tour of such materials, showing how this indeterminacy operates to interrogate the aesthetic, evidentiary, and ontological status of the moving image. She powerfully demonstrates how the reanimated performance oscillates between theatricality, repetition, and documentation. As a result, The Reenactment in Contemporary Screen Culture, more than a study of a particular representation mode, is an insightful inquiry into the complexity of what we so easily push aside as fake. * Charles R. Acland, Distinguished University Research Professor, Concordia University, Canada *

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
