How Hysterical reads scenes from the films Light It Up, Remember the Titans, Three Kings, Paris is Burning, Boys Don't Cry, and Magnolia alongside biblical texts from Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Micah, Matthew, and Revelation. An innovation in studies on Bible and film, How Hysterical is less centered on direct citation of the Bible in film than on analyses of hypostasized biblical influence in culture. Here, through accessible engagement with feminist, queer, postcolonial and ideological critical theories, Erin Runions discusses the processes by which biblical and filmic texts can both bolster and disrupt identifications with the norms that drive politics and culture.
