"The Dimensions of Difference is like a breath of fresh air in contemporary film theory. Caroline Godart thinks hard about what movies do, and how they affect us. Her book offers us both a series of close readings of major films by currently active women directors, and a sustained meditation on how cinema reworks, and enriches, our fundamental experiences of time, space, and embodiment."

Steven Shaviro, DeRoy Professor of English, Wayne State University

"In this beautifully written and thoughtful interrogation of the constitution of space, time and bodies through sexual violence, Godart represents a new orientation in feminist film theory and analysis; one attuned to questions of affect, energy and sexuality as they link and unlink different bodies, providing a way of understanding cinema as an opening up of new relations between sexes, races, classes and empires. A moving and astute intervention into film theory and feminist philosophy."

Elizabeth Grosz, Jean Fox O'Barr Women's Studies Professor, Duke University

"Caroline Godart's The Dimensions of Difference is a superbly written text about four contemporary films by women directors. [...] Godart eloquently sets forth highly original and provocative resources from the tradition of Continental and feminist philosophy, and brings them to bear upon some of the most interesting and challenging films by women directors in contemporary cinema. The films Godart has chosen are artistically and cinematically profound, difficult, and disturbing. The philosophers she calls upon are complex, heterodox and illuminating. Godart's text is itself engaging, sophisticated, and beautifully written.

Katharine Loevy, Associate Professor of Philosophy, Pacific University.

“This is a very timely text; it places Irigaray scholarship in conversation with the lively field of feminist philosophies of life, and this is a really wonderful, fruitful match. The collection itself contains many marvelous pieces. Luce Irigaray’s essay is strong and pithy—she reiterates a number of her important ideas, in accessible language, and places them in the context of pertinent questions in feminism.” — Sabrina L. Hom


“A welcome interdisciplinary dialogue on the limits, exclusions, and paradoxes of consent, this volume poses delightfully challenging questions in a range of idioms and contexts. What does consenting to consent as an elementary relational paradigm prevent us from doing, seeing, knowing? Querying Consent could not be more timely.”
Tim Dean, author of Unlimited Intimacy: Reflections on the Subculture of Barebacking


"The essays collected in Querying Consent variously call attention to situations in which what might seem to be consent could in fact be construed to as something closer to coercion--not just in sexual interactions, but in everything from software user agreements to the fine print in authorization forms for medical treatment."
Harper's Magazine
