Jump Cut 49

Just wanted to mention that a new issue of Jump Cut is now available. There’s quite a bit of reading material here, incluidng a special section on Chinese cinema, a spotlight on horror (including an essay on The Ring and the obsolescnece of VHS, a topic I tackled in a conference paper a long time ago), an interesting article on the role of gossip blogs in constructing stardom, an essay on the lost ancestor hoax in Cheryl Dunye’s The Watermelon Woman, and an article on environmental skeptics and An Inconvenient Truth.

Also worth checking out, Julia Lesage’s article on social bookmarking, which I had the chance to read in a draft version a few weeks ago. Interesting stuff.

Update: In skimming the table of contents, I somehow missed this article on Iraq and Vietnam documentaries (thanks to a social bookmarking pal for pointing it out).

    You’re welcome. I love social bookmarking, but when it comes to academic research, I feel a tad guilty about picking up other folks’ links…feels a little like cheating, don’t you think?

    It does feel a little like cheating. If the link is “big enough,” I try to tell myself that I would have found it anyway.

    But I also figure that people are welcome to use anything that I bookmark, so it works out in the long run.

    Comments are acting strangely this morning, btw. So this is sort of a test.
