Postfeminist Whiteness

Problematising Melancholic Burden in Contemporary Hollywood

Kendra Marston

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • The first extended study into the politics of whiteness inherent within the postfeminist "sensibility"
  • Argues that the characterisation of female heroines in Hollywood cinema as melancholic arises from fluctuations in the popularity of interrelated postfeminist and neoliberal paradigms
  • Includes case studies from diverse film genres to include narratives that are more commonly overlooked within this field of feminist criticism
