Artist on the Make: David Mamet's Work Across Media and Genres

Christophe COLLARD
Résumé
During a prolific career spanning four decades David Mamet has attained a rare degree of popular and critical success in a wide array of artistic disciplines. At the same time such omnipresence starkly contrasts with the extensive, though often one-sided scholarly attention his work has received for over a decade. The present study therefore positions itself as an interdisciplinary alternative by proposing an integrative take on Mamet's multiple ventures across media and genres in order to demonstrate this artist's particular relevance for contemporary cultural studies.
