A research cluster which meets regularly to explore this pervasive, but challenging, genre
The melodrama cluster is a cross-faculty group of academics interested in examining the contested nature of this mode or genre. The group meets regular throughout the academic year to screen and discuss films that resonate with this complicated term. In recent years, the cluster has organized several symposia including Maternal Melodrama and Gothic Feminism. To keep up to date with the group’s activities, and to access reading materials, please visit the Melodrama blog.
