Clio på bio. Om amerikansk film, historia och identitet

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

History in films often reflects attitudes in contemporary society. Thus, films deals more with the time when it was produced rather then the historical time that it is set in. In Clio på bio, I discuss how american history have been "written" and "rewritten" in films due to changes in the american society from late 19th century to the early 21st century.
