I was hoping this comment would generate more discussion here, so I
thought I'd add that I love Scott MacDonald's Critical Cinema Series
for his inclusive attention to diversity & his open acknowledgment
that it is the result of WORK.

If people have other texts/models they think *are* working in this
area, particularly works that don't segregate by identity, I would
love to hear about them.

Thanks for bringing this up Julie.
