Gaps in communication and film studies in Brazil: feminism (and the intersection of gender and race) and film reception

Keywords: Brazilian research, communication and cinema, feminism, gender and race, film reception

Abstract

From a bibliographical review, this study investigates two shortcomings in the re­search on communication and cinema in Brazil: 1) the weak confluence between the Brazilian feminist critique and the media studies (mainly of Anglo-American origin), which, combined with the historical non-recognition of race, determines the scarcity of research on black women; 2) the lack of dialogue between film studies and the the­oretical-methodological production of cultural studies, one of the factors responsible for the precariousness of the cinematographic reception studies. Finally, as part of the propositional exercise, a few signs of change are presented, with new publications and research proposals in the areas of representation and reception.
