Beschreibung

This is the first major study of the role of women in prime time soap operas. In a comparative analysis of British and North American television soaps, Christine Geraghty examines the relationship between the narrative on screen and the women who make up the traditional soap audience. Within the structure of many of the most popular soaps such as Dallas, Dynasty, Coronation Street and Eastenders, the split between public and personal life, reason and emotion, work and leisure is turned into the lynchpin of the plot. Geraghty discusses images of the family, the way in which women's roles in the community are portrayed, the character of the independent woman, and how sexual orientation, class and race are dealt with by the soaps. Finally she examines the possibility of using soap operas to promote change and influence attitudes and prejudices.

Pressestimmen

'Geraghty, a pioneer in the field, provides a clearly argued, accessible account of a decade of feminist media scholarship which is informed by an exhaustive knowledge of, and pleasure in, the soaps of the period'. Charlotte Brunsdon, Film Studies, University of Warwick 'Women and Soap Opera is the most complete, deeply thought through and far-seeing work yet written on soap operas. Christine Geraghty's prose is elegant, lucid and accessible without sacrificing complexity ... finely nuanced and thought-provoking.' Maria La Place, University of California 'As one of the pioneers of the study and appreciation of soap opera, Geraghty writes from a long term-engagement both with the form and with the individual programmes she discusses.' Screen, 1992 'The book is well-written and researched, summarizing much of the previous feminist work in the field... suitable for the general, as well as the academic reader.' American Library Association 'A useful overview of the literature an soaps and related women's genres.' Media Information Australia
