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.
