About the Author

Linda Haverty Rugg is professor in the Scandinavian department at the University of California, Berkeley. Her first book, Picturing Ourselves: Photography and Autobiography, won the Modern Language Association's Aldo and Jeanne Scaglione Prize for Comparative Literature.


"Self-Projection is an innovative and engaging study that offers an insightful theoretical analysis of what constitutes the autobiographical in film. It will make a valuable and provocative contribution not just to the field, but to the larger question of intersubjectivity in self-representational discourse. This is the book we've been waiting for." -Julia Watson, Ohio State University

"This book is unique within film studies. Although Linda Haverty Rugg treats a range of familiar topics-from auteur theory to autobiography to art cinema-she brings them together in a way that is thoroughly her own. Rugg gives a wide-ranging and compelling argument for why it matters that filmmakers choose to enter their own works: a recognition of the complexity of the ways this relation takes place, an account of its importance for coming to terms with their films, and a clear and articulate road map for how to think about it." -Daniel Morgan, University of Chicago
