The Case for Popular Culture, Part 1 of 2: Literature and Film

Colin MacCabe contends that an understanding of twentieth-century literature is impossible without an understanding of film. In the academy, written forms of literature have been valorized historically, but, as viewed from the mid-1980s, the recognition of film as art and literature is growing.

At the time of this interview, MacCabe, a member of the production board of the British Film Institute, was professor of English at the University of Pittsburgh.
