Blurb/Shorttext:
Without a doubt, the best work I’ve read on popular culture EVER -Martina Topic, Centre for Research in Social Sciences and Humanities, Leeds, UK: The series, Jane the Virgin, attracted slightly under two million viewers a week when initially aired. The show follows the lives of three generations of Latinas, allowing for multiple points of identification with women as subject controlling the gaze, perspective, and point of view. This study embeds a very popular award-winning show, in which technology becomes a complex trickster character, in the context of critical television studies, feminist media scholarship, research on pedagogy, discussion of the surprises and delights of online teaching, the vitality of intergenerational feminism, anthropological understandings of the trickster and issues of postmodernism. The volume looks at the tradition of women's film, making a significant contribution to the growing discussion on whether the inclusion of feminist issues in popular culture helps spread awareness of feminism and thus builds feminist consciousness among the general public. Readers will benefit by gaining the ability to trace the origin of feminist devices used in the show.
