Spectatorship, Embodiment and Physicality in the Contemporary Mutilation Film explores 'physical spectatorship': the representation of mutilation on the screen and the physical responses this evokes. The book is organised around the study of a series of dynamic engagements that reconfigure the film-viewer relationship.
Laura Wilson completed her PhD at the University of Manchester where she also taught introductory modules on film, led seminars for the Manchester Leadership Programme and lectured for Ahmed Iqbal's Race Relations Resource Centre. She has presented her work at UK and international conferences. Further publications include articles on race, gender and physical spectatorship.
