About this book

Spectatorship, Embodiment and Physicality in the Contemporary Mutilation Film explores 'physical spectatorship': the representation of mutilation on the screen and the physical responses this evokes. The book is organised around the study of a series of dynamic engagements that reconfigure the film-viewer relationship.

About the authors

Laura Wilson completed her PhD at the University of Manchester where she also taught introductory modules on film, led seminars for the Manchester Leadership Programme and lectured for Ahmed Iqbal's Race Relations Resource Centre. She has presented her work at UK and international conferences. Further publications include articles on race, gender and physical spectatorship.

Reviews

"Wilson bypasses the negative connotations surrounding "torture porn" by opting for a productive thematic model: the mutilation film. This approach is fruitful, leading to insightful discussions regarding, for example, sound, repulsion and self-harm. The filmic analysis is detailed, and the overarching argument represents a valuable contribution to scholarship in the field." - Steve Jones, author of Torture Porn
