This work examines the Gilmore Girls from a post-feminist perspective, evaluating how the show’s main female characters and supporting cast fit into the classic portrayal of feminine identity on popular television. The book begins by placing Gilmore Girls in the context of the history of feminism and feminist television shows such as Mary Tyler Moore and One Day at a Time. The remainder of the essays look at series’ portrayal of traditional and non-traditional gender identities and familial relationships. Topics include the hyper-real utopia represented by Gilmore Girls’ fictional Stars Hollow; the faux-feminist perspective offered by Rory Gilmore’s unfulfilling (and often masochistic) romantic relationships; the ways in which “mean girl” Paris Geller both adheres to and departs from the traditional archetype of female power and aggression; and the role of Lorelai Gilmore’s oft-criticized marriage in destroying the show’s central theme of single motherhood during its seventh season. The work also studies the role of food and its consumption as a narrative device throughout the show’s development, evaluating the ways in which food negotiates, defines, and upholds the characters’ gendered and class performances. The work also includes a complete episode guide listing the air date, title, writer, and director of every episode in the series.

Affect has become something of a buzzword in cultural and feminist theory during the past decade. References to affect, emotions and intensities abound, their implications in terms of research practices have often remained less manifest. Working with Affect in Feminist Readings: Disturbing Differences explores the place and function of affect in feminist knowledge production in general and in textual methodology in particular. With an international group of contributors from studies of history, media, philosophy, culture, ethnology, art, literature and religion, the volume investigates affect as the dynamics of reading, as carnal encounters and as possibilities for the production of knowledge. Working with Affect in Feminist Readings asks what exactly are we doing when working with affect, and what kinds of ethical, epistemological and ontological issues this involves. Not limiting itself to descriptive accounts, the volume takes part in establishing new ways of understanding feminist methodology.

Der Fernsehserien-Boom der letzten Jahre hat auch die Gilmore Girls in Deutschland erfolgreich gemacht. Was aber ist das Besondere an dieser Serie? Die Themen gehen über die Suche nach dem Mann fürs Leben hinaus: Es geht um Lebensentwürfe und um die Verstrickungen in der Familie, um Begrenzungen und Befreiung, um Selbstverwirklichung und Anpassung. Nicht zuletzt stellt sich den (jungen) ZuschauerInnen die Frage: Wenn Rory das kann, kann ich das dann auch? Die in diesem Band versammelten Beiträge bewegen sich auf der Schnittstelle zwischen Erkenntnissen wissenschaftlicher Sozialforschung und den Unterhaltungsbedürfnissen der (vornehmlich weiblichen) Zuschauer: Was macht die Serie so erfolgreich? Wie entsteht die Anbindung der ZuschauerInnen und auf welche Weise werden die zentralen Themen abgehandelt? Welche Frauen- und Familienbilder werden transportiert und inwieweit bilden sie mögliche Handlungsmuster für die ZuschauerInnen ab? Die Zugänge sind stadtsoziologisch, geschlechtertheoretisch, mediensoziologisch und sozialpsychologisch orientiert und beziehen sich zugleich auf Fernseherlebnisse, die zwar geteilt werden, aber für jede ZuschauerIn eine individuelle Bedeutung haben. Aus dem Inhalt: Katharina Knoll, Maria Anna Kreienbaum, Über Freizeitinteressen zur Wissenschaft und zurück Maria Anna Kreienbaum, Warum verzaubert uns eine amerikanische Fernsehserie? Katharina Knoll, Frauen schauen Fernsehserien. Medienaneignung und Identität am Beispiel der Gilmore Girls Katharina Knoll, Maria Anna Kreienbaum, Hegemoniale Weiblichkeit? Geschlechterkonstruktionen bei den Gilmore Girls Katharina Knoll, Frauenbilder und -rollen. Eine diskursive Betrachtung der Gilmore Girls und des Genres der Fernsehserie Bastian Dannenberg, Der Umgang mit Freiheit in der Serie Gilmore Girls Jana-Eileen Hüsmert, Mythos und Nostalgie.

Launched in 1977 by the Christian Broadcasting Service (originally associated with Pat Robertson), the ABC Family/Freeform network has gone through a number of changes in name and ownership. Over the past decade, the network—now owned by Disney—has redefined “family programming” for its targeted 14- to 34-year-old demographic, addressing topics like lesbian and gay parenting, postfeminism and changing perceptions of women, the issue of race in the U.S., and the status of disability in American culture. This collection of new essays examines the network from a variety of perspectives, with a focus on inclusive programming that has created a space for underrepresented communities like transgender youth, overweight teens, and the deaf.
