The Gaze

I was happy to have a chance to read bell hooks for this week’s seminar, since I’ve heard a lot of people talk about and recommend her but haven’t had the opportunity to read her before. I’m used to hearing a lot about “the gaze” through feminist studies and film criticism, so it was fascinating to see the concept expanded on in this way, to think about how it can be used for these different purposes that are sometimes quite positive.
