Editorial Reviews

Review

A Choice Outstanding Title, 2018

"An intellectually dense and enlightening intervention in the never-to-be-concluded discussion of how we frame history and how we navigate time." --
Historical Journal of Film, Radio, and Television

"
Pink-Slipped is a momentous contribution to the interdisciplinary field of feminist media history in its embrace of 'unknowability' as a critical stance." --NECSUS
 

"
Pink-Slipped weaves an extraordinarily intricate complex of issues and impasses surrounding history and historiography." --Screen

"An eye-opening look at these innovative film pioneers and their relevance today, supported by extensive research and in-depth presentation and an insightful examination of the historiographical process itself. This scholarly narrative is an informative addition to film, cultural, and feminist history collections, prompting additional study and discussions."--
Library Journal

"[Gaines's] work should not be missed by those interested in the intersection of critical theory, feminism, and film." --
Publishers Weekly

"Complex and well researched." --
H-Net Review

"Gaines's study is of crucial importance to feminist film critics and historians, and its meditations on history and politics are relevant to many contemporary fields of study. Essential." --
Choice

"Gaines' book is an engaging and rich examination of the 'knowability' of the past." --
Gender & History

"A valuable reflection on the processes of history-making, and an interrogation of the blind-spots that such practices create." --
Synoptique

"A preeminent and provocative feminist historian of early cinema, Jane Gaines has always balanced empirical research with philosophical interrogation of how 'history' as an object of knowledge is itself historically conceived, practiced, and legitimated. She goes even further in
Pink-Slipped, developing a 'melodramatic theory of historical time' that should be read by every historian, whatever their focus. A groundbreaking and brilliant book!"--Vivian Sobchack, author of Carnal Thoughts: Embodiment and Moving Image Culture

"This is not simply a book about the historiography of early film history or women's place in it. Gaines's larger argument is more ambitious, as she attempts to trouble, complicate, and inject some skepticism into the historical project in which she and others are engaged."--Patrice Petro, author of
Idols of Modernity: Movie Stars of the 1920s

"Jane Gaines has been our great pioneer of feminist film history, blazing a trail into the neglected terrain of women filmmakers, particularly during the silent era. In this complex new work she traces a path into controversial areas of the theory of history and the goals of feminist film studies. This is a book that questions assumptions and will agitate our field."--Tom Gunning, author of
D. W. Griffith and the Origins of American Narrative Film: The Early Years at Biograph --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author
