Special Issue on Fifty Shades of Grey – Available Now


The latest issue of Intensities: The Journal of Cult Media features a special issue by guest editors Sarah Taylor-Harman and Erin Pearson, focusing on the highly anticipated and contentiously received film Fifty Shades of Grey (Dir. Sam Taylor-Johnson, 2015).

Sarah Taylor-Harman is presently a PhD candidate at Brunel University London, researching feminism and female sexual submission, using the Story of O as a case study. She is co-editor of Screening Twilight: Critical Approaches to a Cinematic Phenomenon (I.B. Tauris, 2015) and an editorial board member of the Porn Studies journal.

Erin Pearson is a PhD candidate at University of East Anglia. Her work explores the ways that promotional materials work to shape the discursive and physical spaces of American ‘indie’ film culture. Erin has contributed a chapter focusing on the role of review journalism in structuring indie to the forthcoming Blackwell Companion to Indie (ed. Geoff King). She has also written for Intellect’s World Film Locations and Directory of World Cinema series, and is the reviews editor for Intensities.
