About the Author

David Greven is Professor of English at the University of South Carolina. He publishes in two fields, nineteenth century American literature and Film Studies. Greven specializes in psychoanalytic theory, queer theory, and gender studies. He has written studies of same-sex desire in the antebellum United States, Nathaniel Hawthorne's work and Freudian literary theory, the woman's film, masculinity in contemporary Hollywood, and Hitchcock's influence on the filmmakers of the Seventies.


"Greven discovers an impressively wide range of queerings... [and] complicates his search for queer figures and readings in refreshingly unexpected ways... Greven's argument is tightly framed by his meticulously nuanced readings of earlier Hitchcock critics, especially feminists and queer theorists." --Thomas Leitch, The Hitchcock Annual "Brilliantly uniting feminist and queer readings into a powerful new synthesis, David Greven offers compelling and original insights into the work of Alfred Hitchcock, the most masterful troubler of complacent idioms of sexuality and gender that the cinema has ever known. Filled with excellent readings as well as splendid theoretical interventions, this is a major step forward not only in Hitchcock criticism, but in film theory and critical practice at large." -- Jonathan Freedman, Marvin Felheim Professor of English and American Studies at the University of Michigan "Intimate Violence bravely creates a dialogue between queer and feminist film theorists, confirming that such a conversation is long overdue." -- Tania Modleski, Florence R. Scott Professor of English at the University of Southern California-Dornsife and author of The Women Who Knew Too Much: Hitchcock and Feminist Theory "Intimate Violence is an admirably generous and enthusiastic contribution to Hitchcock studies, a book that deserves recognition and elaboration."--Leland Poague
