INTRODUCING MICHAEL R.M. WARD AS THE NEW EDITOR OF BOYHOOD STUDIES

Mike Ward photoIt is with real pleasure, but also with a little apprehension, that I introduce myself as the new editor of Boyhood Studies: An Interdisciplinary Journal. It is a very important and critical time for gender scholars, and I want to use this piece as a general announcement of this change in, or addition to, in editorship and the future direction, I would like to take the journal in.

Over the past few months, I have been in conversation with current editor Diederik Janssen and the publishers about becoming more involved in the journal in an editorial capacity. I have sat on the editorial board for a number of years and I am pleased to announce that from the next volume, my role will become one of editor.

As one of the founding editors, Diederik Janssen has been involved in the journal since its inception in 2007. In 2015 he oversaw a move for the journal between publishers (The Men’s Studies Press to Berghahn Books) and a name change (Thymos to its current title). Diederik has recently embarked on the onerous task of completing a doctorate and with all the hurdles and extra work this brings, it seemed an ideal time to come onboard as an extra pair of hands to share the load and to help the journal grow in readership and submissions. Diederik will continue in a new role as managing editor. Continue Reading »

Reverse Angle: Fifty Years of the Cinema of 1968

HalliganDesires

By Benjamin Halligan, author of DESIRES FOR REALITY: Radicalism and Revolution in Western European Film

 


My book Desires for Reality: Radicalism and Revolution in Western European Film was first published in 2016, and Berghahn Books just published a paperback edition.

Since the book concerns militant and radical film and film-making and the events of 1968, I very much wanted it to be out before 2018. My intention was that the book could contribute to the discussions that marked the 50th anniversary of 1968, and indeed it did. The ideal, in thinking about 1968, would not be commemoration and nostalgia but an engagement with the ideas of 1968 and their relevancy and challenge to today – that the collective desire to change our realities still, of course, remains, and film-making can still be considered in this context.

 

While the book deals with many of the now commonly accepted “classics” of that period, it also attempts to recover some still obscure films. In fact, it’s the existence of this divide – between the canonical and the Curate’s Eggs – that was a point of investigation. And, after the book was first published, the reactions to the November 2018 deaths of two film directors who featured heavily in it – Nic Roeg at 90 and Bernardo Bertolucci at 77 – further illustrated this sense of a divide. Their ’68 films are Performance (which Roeg co-directed by Donald Cammell) and Partner respectively. Continue Reading »
