Area: Transgressive Filmmakers and Their Films

 

Cinematic transgression is about directors challenging or overcoming the status quo in their films, most often through shock and shlock to wake slumbering viewers with (sometimes hidden) social commentary. While each generation has spawned new notions or means of transgression in film, some have remained constant: sex, violence, gore, sacrilege, drugs, race, gender performance, etc. These films frequently are made by a director who is also an embodiment of transgression, whether or not they work within the mainstream system.

Seeking addional essays for an edited collection examining the representation of domestic or imtimate violence in literature and/or law in the long 18th century. Before the term "domestic violence" was coined, there were behaviors, ways of speaking, issues of control, legal categories, economic conditions and occupational relationships that today would constitute domestic violence. The essays I am seeking will consider early ways of representing, thinking, and talking about physical, emotional, or sexual violence within the domestic setting.
