The overarching ambition of Genre Trajectories is to explore trends and developments in genre studies in the early 21st century. The volume seeks both to explore and to problematize genre and genre studies by exposing the field to new identifications, mappings and projections. A wide-ranging set of perspectives is engaged by the 12 authors of the volume to produce multi-faceted readings of a fascinating range of texts drawn from poetry, Holocaust fiction and film, contemporary Hollywood and European film, the New Italian Epic, contemporary photography and the selfie, melodrama, as well as to foster an understanding of the role of genre in teaching and learning. The book is designed to engage the reader in a conversation about genre in relation to philosophy, memory, gender, new media, visuality, teaching and pedagogy.
