Space Oddities: Women & Outer Space in Popular Film & Culture, 1960-2000

Space Oddities: Women & Outer Space in Popular Film & Culture, 1960-2000 by Marie Lathers
English | Nov. 4, 2010 | ISBN: 144119049X | 256 Pages | PDF | 2.28 MB

Space Oddities examines the representation of women in outer space films from 1960 to 2000, with an emphasis on films in which women are either denied or given the role of astronaut.
Marie Lathers traces an evolution in this representation from women as aliens &/or "assistant" astronauts, to women as astronaut wives, to women as astronauts themselves. Many popular films from the era are considered, as are earlier films (from Aelita Queen of Mars to Devil Girl From Mars) & historical records, literary fiction, & television shows (especially I Dream of Jeannie). Early 1960s attempts by women pilots to enter the Space Race are considered as is the media drama surrounding the death of Christa McAuliffe. In addition to its insightful film scholarship, this is an important addition to current reassessments of the Space Race. By applying insights from contemporary gender, race, & species theories to popular imaginings of women in space, the status of the Space Race as a cultural construct that reproduces &/or warps terrestrial gender structures is revealed.
