Stall: Animated Feminism? Gender and Genre in Disney's Contemporary Films
Why are Disney animated features so important to current feminist debates? Drawing on and transforming popular Hollywood cinema – from romantic comedies to superhero films – contemporary Disney films use animation and its seemingly childlike charms in surprisingly subversive ways. My research explores how such films question and re-imagine well-established gender representations.
