Remake, Genre and Gender in English-speaking Films and TV Series

Janvier 2017

Résumé :

Textes réunis et publiés par / edited by Donna Andréolle (Université du Havre) & Claire Maniez (Univ. Grenoble Alpes – ILCEA4)

As a follow-up to the December 2015 issue of Représentations, “Bis repetita placent ? Remake et technologie dans le cinéma et les séries télévisées anglophones”, this issue returns to the question of the remake by focusing on the intersections between film and television genres and the representations of gender in movies and television series. The recent wave of critical writings on film adaptation encourages investigations into how new versions of a movie or series question the interpretation of genre and gender. Indeed, the generic conventions of specific genres are very often gendered. The remake criticizes, implicitly, explicitly and sometimes even emphatically, the “uncharted territories” of a genre and its gender stereotypes.
