I was recently asked for a list of my Star Wars works that are available online, so I thought I'd post that here. I'm happy to say that more is coming very soon!

Read December 2015 Reason Magazine article "Star Wars, Remixed" here.



See/hear my August 2015 Mythgard Academy guest lecture on Star Wars, "The Jedi, the Cowboy, and... Thomas Edison?" here. (This is also available via iTunes U.)

Listen to my "Looking Back on Genre History" segments on the StarShipSofa podcast about Star Wars here:
- "From Republic to Empire in Star Wars"
- "Inspirations for the Jedi in Star Wars, Part 1"
- "Inspirations for the Jedi in Star Wars, Part 2"

See my Star Wars YouTube Videos here:
- Star Wars: Does Fear Cost Us Our Liberty?
- Star Wars: Behind the History
- Star Wars: Good and Evil

Hear my interview as scholarly guest on NPR's "Talk of The Nation" national program, (May 19, 2005) here: "The End of Star Wars, But Not Its Fans

... Body in Question: Image and Illusion in Two Chinese Films by Director Jiang Wen is a wonderful resource. I thought I'd share my mini-review here. I'm still working on my post with a breakdown/review of his films, FYI.

Body in Question offers extremely useful insights for unpacking renowned Chinese filmmaker Jiang Wen’s subversive and celebrated films In the Heat of the Sun and Devils on the Doorstep (especially considering that the author met with Jiang Wen “to confirm the views expressed” in the book) and also understanding/appreciating Jiang’s larger vision and process as a filmmaker. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in political, banned/censored, independent, and/or Chinese film -- or, for that matter, anyone interested in 20th century political/social history.

For students of Jiang Wen's work, this is a "must read."



Under the cut, a few passages of note. )
