"This collection contributes new understandings to the history of film studies, particularly regarding the discipline's development in the humanities and its gradual abandonment of the methodological practices of the social sciences, in which it had its origins." Inventing Film Studies" will be welcomed by academics working in cinema studies, and it will provide new entrants to the field with an important introduction to the history of their study."--Richard Maltby, author of "Hollywood Cinema"
