Description


This is a collection of essays addressing the legacy of Disney films from feminist, Marxist, poststructuralist and cultural studies perspectives. The contributors examine Disney’s dual role as American icon and as cultural production industry. The issues discussed in this book include: the performance of gender, race and class, the heritage of fairy tales, the translation of oral culture into visual text, and the endangered images of science, nature, technology and family. Moreover, the contributors demonstrate how power, representation and identity are an important part of American culture.
