Deny All Knowledge: Reading the X-Files
David Lavery, Angela Hague, Marla Cartwright
Syracuse University Press, Dec 1, 1996 - Fiction - 246 pages
The X-Files was one of the most subversive and longest-running science fiction series in US television history. Yet very little serious work has been done to examine the hit series. Deny All Knowledge examines topics such as: - Why is the series such a hit worldwide? - Why is The X-Files so popular online, generating dozens of websites and chat groups daily? - How does The X-Files' Conspiracy Theory compares to shows from the 1950s? - Can The X-Files be considered a modern-day myth? - What does The X-Files tell us about gender roles today?
