NICO ISRAEL S P I R A L S MODERNIST LATITUDES MODERNIST LATITUDES JESSICA BERMAN AND PAUL SAINT-AMOUR, EDITORS Modernist Latitudes aims to capture the energy and ferment of modernist studies by continuing to open up the range of forms, locations, temporalities, and theo- retical approaches encompassed by the field. The series celebrates the growing latitude (“scope for freedom of action or thought”) that this broadening affords scholars of modernism, whether they are investigating little-known works or revis- iting canonical ones. Modernist Latitudes will pay particular attention to the texts and contexts of those latitudes (Africa, Latin America, Australia, Asia, Southern Europe, and even the rural United States) that have long been misrecognized as ancillary to the canonical modernisms of the global North.

Available at The Gestural Image: The Selfie, Photography Theory, and Kinesthetic Sociability PAUL FROSH1 The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel Keywords: selfies, digital image, photography, visual culture, embodiment, social media A selfie, whatever else it might be, is usually a photograph: a pictorial image produced by a camera. This banal observation informs widespread understandings of the selfie as a cultural category: “A photograph that one has taken of oneself” (Oxford Dictionaries Word of the Year, 2013, p. 1). Yet despite the selfie’s obvious photographic provenance, little scholarly research has drawn systematically on the intellectual resource most closely associated with the aesthetics of its host medium: photography theory. In a way, this is unsurprising. The selfie is the progeny of digital networks. Its distinctiveness from older

Paint It Black: The Family Tree of the Film Noir (2012)

8 Pages | 14.62 M |

Raymond Durgnat (1970) In 1946 French critics having missed Hollywood films for five years saw suddenly, sharply, a darkening tone, darkest around the crime film. The English spoke only of the "tough, cynical Hammett-Chandler thriller," although a bleak, cynical tone was invading all genres, from The Long Voyage Home to Duel in the Sun. The tone was often castigated as Hollywood decadence, although black classics are as numerous as rosy (Euripides, Calvin, Ford, Tourneur, Goya, Lautreamont, Dostoievsky, Grosz, Faulkner, Francis Bacon). Black is as ubiquitous as shadow, and if the term film noir has a slightly exotic ring it's no doubt because it appears as figure against the rosy ground of Anglo-Saxon middle-class, and especially Hol- Iywoodian, optimism and puritanism. If the term is French it's no doubt because, helped by their more lucid (and/or mellow, or cynical, or decadent)
