The chapter outlines the critical and contextual foundations for the case study chapters that follow, establishing in greater depth the three interlocking contexts of moviegoing, print culture and modernity in interwar Britain. It offers an overview of the interrelationship between key framing contexts that inform the coordinates of the study, considering British cinema culture alongside the interwar publishing industry for women’s writing, read in relation to the changing texture of women’s everyday lives in British modernity alongside a more detailed consideration of the intersections between critical explorations of film reception and intermediality.
