I am pleased to announce the publication of my new book Women’s
Cinema, World Cinema: Projecting Contemporary Feminisms (Duke
University Press), which explores the dynamic intersection of feminism
and film in the twenty-first century by highlighting the work of a new
generation of women directors as it circulates in the international film 
festival network.

"Women's Cinema, World Cinema is an exciting book for the connections
that Patricia White expertly draws and explicates between text and
context, auteur and society, national and global. Her knowledge of the
particularities of individual directors and national cinemas is
remarkable, as is her familiarity with their relevant histories and
critical literatures. Women's Cinema, World Cinema is a major work that
will transform how these films and filmmakers are viewed and
studied."—*B. Ruby Rich*, author of /New Queer Cinema: The Director’s Cut/
