The following posting from POSTMODERN CULTURE, the on-line journal,
lists many 1990-91 books dealing with postmodernism. Several of
these releases deal with film and/or TV.
I bounce this over to SCREEN-L asa way of inaugurating a general
discussion of postmodernism--if, indeed, the list is interested.
And to start things off in the most general way possible I'll pose
this question: Have SCREEN-L subscribers found "postmodernism" a
useful concept for their work in teaching, theorizing or studying
film and/or television?
