      EVENT DETAILS
      Queer@King's presents: Lesbian Cinema after Queer Theory

      To celebrate the publication of Lesbian Cinema after Queer Theory (Edinburgh University Press, 2019), Clara Bradbury-Rance (King’s College London) will be in dialogue with Jackie Stacey (University of Manchester) about the status of contemporary lesbian cinema. Clara’s book explores how the unprecedented increase in lesbian representation over the past two decades has coincided with queer theory’s transformation of the study of sexuality. This paradoxical context has yielded new kinds of cinematic language and radically altered desire’s visual form. Drawing on a provocative theoretical and visual corpus, Lesbian Cinema after Queer Theory reveals the conditions of lesbian legibility in the twenty-first century.
