Feminist Media Histories, special issue on Asian Media is now out!

The Winter 2019 issue of Feminist Media Histories is now out! This issue, guest edited by Yiman Wang, focuses on Asian feminist media.

From the Editor’s Introduction:

“The field of Asian feminist media studies is inchoate and under-defined. Despite increasing archival endeavors to excavate women’s work in early to mid-twentieth-century film and media cultures in Asia and continuous scholarly attention to the accomplishments of contemporary Asian women film and media makers, a concerted, in-depth reexamination of women’s media work in different parts of Asia has been lacking.”
