Killer Tapes and Shattered Screens: Video Spectatorship from VHS to File Sharing

By Caetlin Benson-Allott | Go to book overview

More recently, the English Department and Graduate School of Georgetown University provided research grants and a Junior Faculty Research Fellowship that enabled me to finish this manuscript. My colleagues in the English Department have revitalized my appreciation for interdisciplinary conversation; I especially wish to acknowledge Dana Luciano, Ricardo Ortiz, Henry Schwartz, and Kathryn Temple. Our Junior Faculty Writing Group gave me the collegiality I needed to keep my fingers on the keyboard; thank you Jennifer Fink, Nathan Hensley, Brian Hochman, Samantha Pinto, Daniel Shore, and Mimi Yiu. I also want to express my gratitude to the faculty and staff of the Film and Media Studies Program; the students of “Multimedia Spectatorships”; and my research assistant, Ryan Walter. Georgetown facilitated my entry into the DC Queer Studies Reading Group, which makes the district feel like a home. Carla Marcantonio and Kristen Bergen, in particular, make capital life a joy. And Matthew Tinkcom needs an acknowledgment all his own: thank you, Matthew, for reading, commenting, encouraging, and reminding me that professing is just a job, but a great job.

I am eternally grateful to the generous souls who read and reread large chunks of this manuscript over the past six years, including many of the aforementioned and Jacob Brogan, Paul Fleig, Daniel Herbert, Jen Malkowski, Hugh Manon, Lisa Patti, and Celeste Pietrusza. Various chapters were also improved by insights from Larry Andrews, Will Brooker, John Thornton Caldwell, Nick Davis, Max Dawson, Paul Dergerabedian, Anne Friedberg, Theresa Geller, Amy Herzog, Chris Holmlund, Alexandra Keller, Chuck Kleinans, L. S. Kim, Marcia Landy, Julia Lesage, Peter Limbrick, Paul McDonald, Cathy and Corey Mifsud, Laura Mulvey, Tim Murray, Chris Olivia, Anthony Reed, Jeffrey Sconce, Vivian Sobchack, Lynn Spigel, Yiman Wang, Frederick Wasser, Kristen Whissel, Rob White, Linda Williams, and Patricia Zimmerman. Portions of chapters 3 and 4 were previously published in Jump Cut and Film Quarterly, and I wish to thank their anonymous readers for invaluable feedback. I was privileged to present works-in-progress from this project at San Francisco State University; Smith College; the University of Pittsburgh; and the University of California, Berkeley, and I want to reiterate my thanks to the generous audiences I met there. I would also like to thank the owners and staff of Revolution Video, Lincoln Video, Five Star Video, Collegetown Video, and Westside Video. Without you this project would have never begun.

Mary Francis has been the best editor I could have imagined; her critical acumen and consistent encouragement always inspire me to rise to the challenge. Kim Hogeland and Rachel Berchten have also been invaluable.
