about

In this innovative study, Stephen Groening explores in-flight cinema as the convergence of two essentially modern, globalising technologies – aviation and entertainment. Identifying parallels in their social functions and surrounding discourses, this book opens up new directions in the history of cinema, travel and cultural geography.

Stephen Groening is Assistant Professor of Cinema and Media Studies at the University of Washington, USA. He has published a number of articles in academic journals and edited anthologies.
