Abstract – Interview with Laura Mulvey

Interview with Laura Mulvey


Laura Mulvey can be considered an organic intellectual of the feminist movement who is not afraid to change the direction of her writing, traits that distinguish her from many other theorists. The cinema of Western Europe is better understood by tracing Mulvey’s texts, observing her concerns, her choices, and the movements in which she has taken part. Her writing comes from a lifetime, and listening to the ever-young woman in this interview evokes memories of the magical days of 1968, with hints of the sort of resistance that we thought about again during to the resistance witnessed in Turkey during the Gezi protests.
