Visual Auto/biography, Hysteria, and the Pedagogical Performance of the "Real."
Hesford, Wendy S.
JAC: A Journal of Composition Theory, v20 n2 p349-89 Spr 2000
Discusses Mindy Faber's autobiographical video as an allegory of contradictory interpretations of female hysteria as both a theater of femininity and feminist revolt. Provides an analysis of the resonance between student responses to "Delirium" (her auto/biographical video about her mother's long battle with mental illness) and contemporary critiques of feminism construed as a generational plot of betrayal.
