Movies and Methods, volumes 1 and 2 (editor)

   

Movies and Methods (1976) represented the first time contemporary film theory and criticism came together in a single volume.  Previous anthologies had been assortments of reviews and essays by a wide range of individuals but none had turned primary to the emerging discipline of film studies for their source material.  For that reason, Movies and Methods, vol 1, helped establish the discipline of film studies in the university, a gesture further cemented by the appearance of volume 2 in 1985.

Although intended primarily as collections devoted to critical and theoretical issues, the volumes now also serve a historical function as prime examples of the state of film studies in the 1970s and early 1980s.
