Summary
"This book addresses the pervasive representation of women with unique visionary abilities in postfeminist television series and films from the 1990s to the present. These women mediate between the living and the dead or between different worlds of experience, redefining "normal" and challenging the traditional boundary between science and the inner world of visionary, mystical experience"--Provided by publisher
